Peter Dundas, Zac Posen and the House of Carven the Latest Players in Designer Musical Chairs

There are some major changes going on in the fashion industry, which seems to play a game of designer musical chairs every few months. This particular go-round includes Peter Dundas, who is said to have shown his final collection for Emilio Pucci this weekend. The designer showed another set of spectacularly printed pieces before taking his bow at the helm of the house. Now, all eyes are on Dundas to see what he does next, with many speculating that the designer could be headed back to Roberto Cavalli, where he worked from 2002 to 2005. 

Zac Posen is another designer possibly playing a huge role in this round of shake-ups. According to Page Six, Posen has been tapped to lead the revived house of Charles James. Posen seems like an excellent choice — James was known for the grandeur of his gowns and if anyone has that spirit running through his veins, it’s Posen, whose ballooning skirts and figure-flattering silhouettes have made him a red carpet favorite for many celebrities. The resurrected label is a pet project of Harvey Weinstein, who has tapped his wife and Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman to serve as a creative consultant for the brand. Marchesa co-founder Keren Craig and CEO Edward Chapman have also signed on to serve in the position alongside Georgina.

Carven is going through a few changes of its own — the house has announced two artistic directors for its womenswear line, Adrien Caillaudaud and Alexis Martial. Their very first collection for the label will be shown on Thursday, so we will get a peek at how the pair, both alums of Givenchy, worked together this season.

Vogue Turkey Celebrates Fifth Anniversary with 5 Different Cover Girls (Forum Buzz)

Multi-covers are everywhere and Vogue Turkey continues the trend for its fifth anniversary. It’s almost hard to believe the publication’s premiere issue with Jessica Stam was half a decade ago. Jessica makes a welcome return for the mag’s March 2015 issue alongside peers Alessandra Ambrosio, Fei Fei Sun (below), Behati Prinsloo and Jourdan Dunn. Each cover girl was captured by Cuneyt Akeroglu in similar setups, delivering a set of coherent covers for the celebratory issue. It’s only natural one cover is going to outshine the rest, but which?

Leave it to our forum members to share the best and the worst. “Fei Fei is enough! She’s gorgeous,” gazebo raved.

“What a stunning group of covers. I love them all but Fei Fei’s is my favorite!” responded Nepenthes in agreement.

Sharing the same sentiments was thatsfierce: “Fei Fei and Alessandra’s are my favs! They both look so gorgeous. Can’t wait for more.”

Forum member nataliaapple agreed writing, “Absolutely love Fei Fei’s cover. Perfection. Love them all but Fei Fei is the star here.”

As did lightblue, who was quick to share, “By far the best cover Alessandra has ever done. I just love her here, she looks so young. Second pick would be Fei Fei.”

Has Vogue Turkey hit a home run? “Lovely! Best work I’ve seen from Vogue Turkey in a while. Love the Diversity!” hailed fashionlover2001.

“Hats off to Vogue Turkey for showing diversity on its covers. Some model choices I find weird, like Behati and Alessandra but I really like them, especially the styling,” kokobombon noted.

Australian actress Rebecca Murphy stepped out for NYLON magazine’s spring fashion issue celebration hosted by Rita Ora in West Hollywood on February 27, supporting a home-grown label in a striped Bec & Bridge number.

The brunette babe opted for the Aussie brand’s Zodiac Halter Dress ($200) from its Autumn 2015 collection, a popular piece already rocked by presenter Carissa Walford on our home turf, as well as the two-piece version by singer Kya.

Rebecca added edge with black criss-cross pumps, tousled waves and dark eye makeup, but balanced out the harsh look with some white nail polish. It’s the sexiest styling of the dress we’ve seen yet.

Contrary to what you might already think, Jennifer Hawkins isn’t just another model slashie who gets to decorate her bangin’ bod in Cozi bikinis and JBronze tanning products. The quintessential Aussie babe is proving she can go the distance beyond the gene lottery, cleverly capitalising on a pageant-queen moment over 10 years ago while still sticking to her roots.

Just ask the editor-in-chief of entrepreneurial magazine Renegade Collective, Lisa Messenger, who is an advocate of all-things Jennifer. She chose the 31-year-old model as cover girl for the glossy’s second anniversary issue this month because she believes that Jennifer is “a serious entrepreneur to watch.”

“If people still think of her as just a model, I would urge them to look much more deeply into the multi-faceted, multi-talented woman that is Jen,” Lisa explained to theFashionSpot. While modelling might be her calling card, Lisa wants people to see how Jennifer has successfully traversed the industry. “She has used her modelling career and associated celebrity as a springboard to start seriously successful businesses such as JBronze and Cozi Swimwear, and has an illustrious property empire,” she told us.
