Indian Actress Shraddaha Kapoor Wears Gucci on Vogue India’s April Cover (Forum Buzz)

A pleasant surprise surfaced on the forums earlier today. Vogue India's April issue has 'the country's newest sweetheart,' Shraddah Kapoor on the cover and she's wearing a piece from Gucci's latest collection, designed by Frida Giannini. The Indian actress was photographed by Tejal Patni.

While this isn't the most groundbreaking of Vogue covers, I do think this is very nice as a whole and I surprisingly like the design of the masthead. The cover has all the right elements (great cover shot, terrific composition and attractive layout), so I've nothing to complain about. I also think it's necessary to applaud a good attempt.

GIVENCHYlover disagreed about the masthead and wrote, "The logo is horrible."

"Erm… I'm not really feeling the top that Shraddha is styled in, doesn't seem particularly 'Vogue' to me. But otherwise, this is a decent Vogue India cover. And I like that they have a travel issue, I'm curious to see what the other editorials are like, hopefully gorgeous!" wrote YoninahAliza, who seemed to be on the fence regarding this particular cover.

Westfield Announces Partnership With Dion Lee, Romance Was Born and We Are Handsome

It’s been a dream month for young Australian designers, who are currently getting funding, awards and Vogue Italia attention left, right and center.

Now, Westfield is also showing the love to the next crop of talent. This week at an intimate presentation at Café Sydney, they announced a partnership that will reward three of our most heralded designers: Dion Lee, Romance Was Born and We Are Handsome.

Each brand will get not only funding for their MBFWA show and floor space in two Westfield Sydney installations running concurrently, but the opportunity to break in an entirely new bespoke retail space. ‘InHabit’ will launch at Victoria’s Westfield Doncaster in August, hosting the respective next-level tailoring, trippy prints and halcyon swimwear of the aforementioned brands. The concept aims to get multiple Australian designers prime real estate in a high-traffic mall for a short-term residency.

“We are pleased to be working with three incredible designers and show our support of Australian talent,” Peter Leslie, Westfield’s Director of Leasing, told the crowd on Monday. “The retail space is changing and we want to embrace the evolution of this industry by providing opportunities that will foster established and emerging Australian talent.

“We are working on other ways to fulfill our program of nurturing and offering guidance to Australian designers later in 2014 to build on our current program of activity.”

Westfield: Not just for last-minute presents and sneaky binges in the food court.

Each designer starred in a short film directed by Hugh Stewart as part of the mutual back-scratching. We’re particularly into Romance Was Born’s, which prominently features Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales’ four-legged company supervisor “Moni” Monaro.

MBFWA kicks off April 6, so watch this space! And by “this space,” we mean Carriageworks.

Global Fur Trade is Valued at $40 Billion, Largely Due to Fashion Runways

Whether we like it or not, the omnipresence of fur on the catwalk is inescapable, with every season bringing an increasing number of fur looks into the magazines and stores. The figures released by the International Fur Federation currently value the fur trade at $40 billion (£24 million), on par with the value of the global Wi-Fi market.

Fur has become an almost expected part of celebrity culture with the likes of Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian and Rachel Zoe all pushing the trend throughout the year. While we are becoming used to its appearance, does that make it acceptable and should we be allowing designers to raise the percentage of fur in collections, year upon year?

The Telegraph spoke to Mark Oaten, the CEO of the IFF, who pointed out that alongside the recent cold weather in North America, the recent surge in popularity of fur on the catwalk was one of the main factors contributing to the increase in popularity of the fur trade. "It's easy to get caught up in the emotions the business can generate, but the truth is that the fur trade is an economic cornerstone in Europe and beyond. Much of the fashion and increasingly the soft furnishings world relies on fur — and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future."

Whether this is the case or not, there are many who do not see these figures as something just to accept. Vogue Uk spoke to PETA today who told them, "No matter what the industry has to say for itself, ripping the fur from animals who did not want to die just for a coat can never be defensible."

It cannot be denied that the industry is certainly profitable, but it is unlikely that the issue will ever remain uncontested.

Zoe Saldana is the New Face of L’Oréal Paris: Do You Care?

​Early this morning, E! Online reported that cosmetics giant L'Oréal Paris tapped actress Zoe Saldana as its new international spokesperson.

In the first campaign shot, pictured above, the actress is impeccably made up with a subtle swipe of shimmery lipstick, velvety lashes and luscious brows. Saldana looks like many millions of bucks, the presumed value of her contract with L'Oréal Paris — and yet, I don't care?

Based on the number of people that have spent their Friday morning Tweeting the news, I am in the minority here, but to me, the photo above looks like a highly produced but fundamentally generic headshot.

And although Zoe Saldana has been the international spokesperson of my heart ever since she snuffed out a cigarette with her pointe shoe* in the 2000 movie, Center Stage, blabbering about her new deal with L'Oréal as if it were pop culture or art or something when really it is just A CONTRACT makes me feel slimy. I love creative, innovative ads, and many of the fashion ads we cover on tFS are sterling examples of how fantastic advertising can be when it's original — but most beauty ads don't do it for me. They're all Photoshop and flawless foundation; it's probably an effective way to sell lipstick, but to me, there's no story.

*I couldn't find a GIF but if you've ever seen that movie, you know exactly what I'm talking about.
