Chanel Cruise 2014

Although previews of the new Chanel Cruise 2014 campaign were already posted on the tFS forums three weeks ago, shots featuring Spanish model Dalianah Arekion didn’t surface until earlier this week. The model, who got her breakthrough thanks to a Givenchy campaign and runway exclusive, is a welcome addition to the cast that also includes Ashleigh Good and Nadja Bender as it proves that Karl Lagerfeld continues to embrace racial diversity in Chanel campaigns. Other models of color that recently nabbed a spot as the faces of Chanel are Joan Smalls, Soo Joo Park, Chiharu Okunugi and Cora Emmanuel. Needless to say, tFS forum members were happy to see Dalianah in this campaign. 

TREVOFASHIONISTO exclaimed, “Wow congrats for Dalianah scoring this campaign.”

“Yeah very happy for her! She's gorgeous,” commented anlabe32.

As anlabe32 further noted, the influence of Carine Roitfeld, who is responsible for the styling here, in the model casting may have helped Dalianah score this campaign. Unfortunately, the direction for the campaign did not impress quite as much as the model cast and forum member also went on to discuss whether Dalianah was possibly added to the images via post-production.

GERGIN said, “I feel like there could have been more work done with the scenery…I mean they were literally thrown into that corner to get photographed…the models on that staircase would have made for a much more interesting campaign.”

And teaars wrote, “[Dalianah] seems almost purposefully out of place, like her shots were added after the first two girls were shot. She adds some strength to this campaign that was lacking pretty hard. I do wish we saw her gorgeous face more.” 

Whether it’s just due to the adequate model cast or not, I consider this Chanel campaign is a success. The images are classy and suit the collection perfectly, and the surprise appearances of some unexpected models can only be applauded.

032c Releases Weird Cover With Rihanna for Its Winter Issue (Forum Buzz)

032c

Culture and fashion magazine 032c is known for its extreme, powerful and unique editorials and covers. More often than not it succeeds in delivering interesting and arresting images. For its Winter 2013/2014 issue, however, the magazine used an image of singer Rihanna, shot by Inez & Vinoodh, that left tFS forum members puzzled. Not just because it is unusual for the magazine to feature an overexposed popstar on the cover, but also because the cover shot is anything but alluring or flattering.

“Horrible cover and not really what I expect / want from this magazine. I can have Rihanna on every mainstream magazine around, why here too? Hopefully the content will make up for it. If not… bye,” posted mistress_f 

VogueDisciple93 hopes this isn’t the only cover for this issue. He wrote, “That 'tail' of hair disturbs me to no ends. I hope this is a multi-cover issue.“

KissMiss added, “I think she is a very beautiful girl but I find this cover intensely ugly!” And LRlovesDaria went on to call this “one of [Rihanna’s] worst covers ever.”

Is this perhaps not just one of Rihanna’s worst covers but also one of 032c’s worst covers?

Rihanna Wears ‘#Ghetto #Goth’ Gucci on the Cover of 032c

032c is more likely to feature top models (most recently, Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls) than superstars, but here we are: Rihanna appears on the cover of the latest issue of the Berlin-based arts and culture biannual. The performer first posted the image on Instagram (it has since appeared on the publication's website), where she tagged it, "#ghetto #goth" — a fun way of describing a highly stylized image of a famous millionaire dressed in Gucci, taken by prestigious fashion photographers Inez & Vinoodh. In a follow-up Instagram close-crop of the cover, Rihanna included a message thanking 032c for the "creative freedom they let [her] have in this shoot."

Alexa Chung, Naked Models and More at This Year’s Whitney Studio Art Party

If there's one museum that can consistently be counted on to throw a memorable event that attracts everyone from well-heeled socialites to young downtown influencers, it's The Whitney. This year for their Studio Art Party, they set up a half dozen male and female nude models around a huge stack of Louis Vuitton luggage, the event’s sponsor. Artists were lined around the center display sketching the models and then, later, guests were invited to sketch alongside the professionals. By the end of the night the floor was littered with hundreds of sketches of nude bodies. The event was held in honor of artist Ed Ruscha and, fittingly, his own work was also projected on large screens throughout Skylight at Moynihan Station, where the event was held.

Karolina Kurkova for Glamour Italia: ‘She Kind of Looks Like Jessica Simpson on the Cover’ (Forum Buzz)

Glamour Italia featured Karolina Kurkova on both of its November Issue covers. The images were posted in the forums (along with the full editorial spread) via the Czech model's Facebook page and … I'll let just let the comments speak for themselves:

  • Bertrando3: "Oh gosh… nothing works."
  • Simera: "To use one of my favorite German words for emphasis, this is schrecklich."
  • MyNameIs: "The cropping around her hair on the cover looks atrocious. Makes her look like she has a helmet on. Other than that, KK looks sensational in all the pics."
  • Hector: "She kind of looks like Jessica Simpson on the cover." 
  • Nymphaea: "Looks like a weird parody."

It certainly does give a whole new meaning to the term "helmet hair."
