Does Prabal Gurung’s Spring Campaign Capture Joan Smalls in Her Best Light? (Forum Buzz)

We’ve seen just about all of the Spring 2015 advertising campaigns, but a few continue to trickle out. Joan Smalls returns as the face of Prabal Gurung, having previously fronted the designer’s namesake brand back in Spring 2013. Once again lensed by Daniel Jackson, who’s best known for his minimalistic, natural and flattering photographic style, Joan poses in a dark studio atmosphere sporting Gurung’s latest collection, consisting of tailored jackets and floor-sweeping dresses.

It was only natural for our forum members to share their views with us. “Very interesting concept, Joan is gorgeous. I really like the first picture,” admired elle_gb.

“I really like this. Nice to see Joan not blasted with Photoshop as well, she doesn’t need it,” iclawhands appreciated.

Nepenthes had a positive attitude toward the campaign, too: “Absolutely stunning! There is nothing about this that I don’t love!”

Also sharing the same sentiments about the post-production was GivenchyHomme, who credited, “It’s nice to see her looking more natural here as opposed to her usual Photoshopped self.”

But not everyone was feeling the campaign. “I hate how the light hits her face. She already has a rough face and the light just highlights it,” slammed anlabe32.

Benn98 appeared to agree. “I also think her face looks quite rough in the blurry shots. The b&w ones are OK, but nothing special. They didn’t even bother with her hair.”

“10 seasons of you hating <<< 10 seasons of Joan WINNING,” fired back valliaddict.

Does Prabal Gurung’s spring campaign deserve a round of applause or a thumbs down? Let us know here.

Katy Perry Gives Major Side-Eye on ELLE’s March Cover (Forum Buzz)

After a spectacular Super Bowl performance, ELLE‘s cover star couldn’t be more timely. Katy Perry, who released the image via her Instagram page, gives us some major side-eye on the cover of the March issue. Photographed by Michael Thompson (a refreshing choice for ELLE), the “Teenage Dream” songstress wears Giambattista Valli paired with Chanel earrings, styled by Lori Goldstein. The sophisticated look is a new approach for the 30-year-old American raven-haired beauty, who usually opts for more cheeky and colorful outfits. We like!

But do our forum members agree? “This angle for her face is not the best one in my opinion, but she looks good. Nice styling too,” posted Emmanuelle, getting us off to a mixed start.

“I like the styling but the pose looks too stiff and forced and yes, the angle. The layout seems off even though change is good. Looks very subscribers. Light pink on a gray background?” MON questioned.

“Really bad angle and that awful gray background!” discredited GlamorousBoy.

Tinsley V soon changed the mood. “I really like this! Love the colors, the styling … looks really fresh and pretty for spring,” she complimented.

Also feeling the same way was Benn98: “A new dawn!! So glad to see Michael Thompson paired with the redesign for ELLE. He’ll hopefully shake things up a bit. You can see a world of difference between this and Paola Kudacki’s usual grey drab. I’m not really interested in what Katy has to say, but I’ll still get this.”

“It does look a bit amateur but I like it a lot – it’s clean and unobtrusive, also feminine and very spring. It’s a hip and modern layout without using hashtags and that stuff,” noted t-rex.

Bruce Jenner’s Mom Reportedly Supports His Transition

Bruce Jenner has had a lot of accomplishments in his lifetime. The 65 year old is an Olympic gold medalist and a famous reality TV star, but his mother, Esther Jenner, is more proud of her son than ever. The Jenner matriarch spoke to Radar Online about her son’s alleged transition, saying she supports her son in this crucial time. “I have never been more proud of Bruce for who he is, himself as a father, as an Olympian, a wonderful public speaker. He instills enthusiasm in people. He’s gifted,” she said.

Bruce is reportedly scheduled to do a sit-down interview with Diane Sawyer addressing his transition, which is due to air in May. Esther says she’s just learning about her son’s decision to go through these changes, but believes in him. “Right now I am more proud of him for what he’s allowing himself to do. I am more proud of him now than when he stood on that podium and put the gold medal around his neck. He deserves all the respect.”

The rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan has kept pretty mum on Bruce’s life changes, though Kim did tell Entertainment Tonight that the reality TV patriarch will “tell his story his way” and that he is “the happiest I’ve ever seen him.”

Jessica Alba and Jennifer Meyer Launch Jewelry Capsule on Gilt Today

First organic baby powder, now bling. Jessica Alba is teaming up with jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer on a capsule collection due to hit Gilt today. The two have created a pair of necklaces, naturally, for a good cause. The pieces are both gold heart necklaces, one done in 8k gold with a simple pendant and the other, an 18k gold version, festooned with rubies. 

Jessica and Jennifer’s designs were created to benefit the Global Fund through Bono’s (RED) foundation, which raises money to help the fight against AIDS. Buying one of these necklaces will help HIV positive pregnant mothers by giving them enough medicine for nine or 27 months to keep them from passing on the virus to their babies.  

The 8k necklace rings in at $280, while the ruby-encrusted one is going for $980. The prices are a trifle compared to the value of the medication these women need to make sure their children grow up healthy.

The pair fêted the launch of the range yesterday, an affair that was attended by the likes of Kerry Washington, Rachel Zoe, Molly Sims and more.

The necklaces go on sale at noon today at Gilt.com.

Exclusive: Lisa Hyde Opens Up About Her Romance with Male Model Tyson Mayr

Blake Garvey sobbed like a giant Cabbage Patch Doll when he said goodbye to Lisa Hyde on national TV, so we hope no cameras are around when he finds out she’s happy with someone who upstages the stripping love rat on so many levels.

Meet Tyson Mayr: male model, travel series host, “Best Job in the World” winner, and Lisa’s new boyfie. Oh, and now he’s a contestant on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, so he’s about to become, in real estate terms for Blake’s sake, very hot property. Burn.

It’s a beautiful union, not only because he’s a model and she’s a fashion designer, but because Tyson and Lisa didn’t get together with the help of 20-plus other potential girlfriends and red-petalled shrubs. Even though the pair are technically both reality TV stars, there’s no bogus bullshit here. (more…)
