To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Calvin Klein's Eternity fragrance franchise, the fashion house is rolling out some new ads starring Christy Turlington and husband Ed Burns. Christy and Ed were photographed by Dutch duo Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin on location on the beaches of Turks & Caicos. Turlington's no stranger to the Calvin Klein brand; the 90s supermodel fronted the first Eternity campaign back in 1995 with Mark Vanderloo. The new ads are slated to break in both print and television advertising come June.

These are just so timeless and you cannot go wrong with a face like Turlington's. Above is the new ad for the original fragrance and below is a double-page shot for the Eternity Night collection, for both men and women.

Reese Witherspoon might be a big time movie star, but at heart, she's a simple southern girl. Yeah, she might be on Hollywood's A-List, but that doesn't mean she's one to put on airs. Not even at the Met Gala (post-Met Gala?), surrounded by a slew of posh international comrades.
Cara Delevingne posted a video to her Instagram earlier of the actress, who clearly had a great time at the event, in an elevator with Zooey Deschanel, Kate Upton and a few others. In the clip, the actress tries desperately to pronounce Delevingne's admittedly tricky name. Witherspoon first calls her 'Cara,' with her country twang, but then quickly corrects herself with the proper British pronunciation, which would be 'Cah-rah.'"
"I don't know what your f****n' name is," Reese quipped, then went on to try and pronounce Delevingne. "That's super French," she said, then whispered, "Day-lah-veen."

As some of my fellow tFS forum members know, I like to pick up back issues of magazines when the price is right. I happened to stumble across a set last week which was priced just under £1 each, so naturally I couldn't resist. Amongst the five issues I bought was the October 2000 issue of US Vogue. The cover features actress Charlize Theron, photographed by legendary photographer Herb Ritts and wearing a black beaded Giorgio Armani tulle dress, before a vast ocean background. Tonne Goodman styled Theron for the cover.

This 482-page issue seems like such an oldy when you're leafing through. There are several fashion stories inside, so plenty of content to feast your eyes on. Steven Meisel photographs a vintage-inspired story, Arthur Elgot shoots Stephanie Seymour for a Giorgio Armani feature and a fresh-faced Gisele Bundchen is photographed by Michael Thompson.
The standout story is clearly Meisel's. Trish Goff is styled by Grace Coddington for the editorial which consists of more than a dozen images to portray the retro inspiration of the times. To accompany the images is an article compiled by Sally Singer, who documents her journey thrifting items of clothing around New York.
Check out 'A Fine Vintage' by Steven Meisel here. Stay tuned for next week's flashback — and be sure to check out previous posts from our flashback series.

When Vogue revealed its April 2014 cover, featuring Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, many of us thought that the unexpected move reflected savvy Anna Wintour's commitment to Vogue's commercial viability. That is, we thought she was hoping to sell boatloads of magazines at newsstands.
But as it turns out, massive social media follower counts and tabloid fame don't necessarily translate to glossy magazine sales. At least not for Vogue.
Josh Gary, vice president at Mag Net Data (a firm that tracks magazine sales) tells the New York Post that although the issue sold 20% more copies at the newsstand than the previous month's (featuring Rihanna), Kimye's cover will likely perform below last year's April edition: “I’d argue that if you peg last year’s Michelle Obama at 269,000, this issue will net out around 250,000."
According to the Post, initial projections had sales in the 400,000-to-500,000 range, outperforming Beyonce's March 2013 cover, which sold 355,000 issues.
Whether you're obsessed with her or just downright sick of seeing her mug, America just can't seem to shake their girl crush on Jennifer Lawrence, who covers the June issue of Marie Claire. The glossy caught up with the Oscar-winning actress to chat about her relationship with X-Men costar Nicholas Hoult, losing to Lupita Nyong'o at this year's Oscars, and of course, why she can't seem to ever keep her footing in those huge Dior gowns.

If you remember (how could you forget?), J.Law had yet another Oscars-related wardrobe malfunction this year, before she even made it to her seat inside the Dolby Theatre. She fell on the red carpet on her way in, which, when you think about it, is a step up from the year before when she famously tripped up the stairs in another voluminous Dior number to receive her Oscar for Best Actress. Tripping two times at the Oscars? Folks began to get suspicious that Lawrence's endearing clumsiness was just an act. But J.Law says that her slip-up was most certainly unplanned:
“I’m trying to do the right thing, waving to fans, trying to be nice, and there’s a traffic cone. The second I hit it, I was laughing, but on the inside I was like, ‘You’re fucked. They’re totally going to think this is an act…’ But trust me if I was going to plan it, I would have done it at the Golden Globes or the SAGs. I would have never done it at two Oscars in a row. I watch Homeland – I’m craftier than that!”
We'd like to think so, too. But if the "stumblers" (the Jennifer Lawrence equivalent of Barack Obama's birthers) are looking to officially start the J.Law backlash, they have the actress' full support: "But if people want to start the backlash, I'm the captain of that team. As much as you hate me, I'm 10 steps ahead of you."
