Abercrombie’s Look Policy Makes Its Way to the Supreme Court

Abercrombie’s look policy has consistently come back to bite the retailer in the rear, thanks to the strict requirements it puts on its employees. Seven years ago, a young Muslim applicant, Samantha Elauf from Tulsa, was denied a job because she wears a hijab, so she took Abercrombie to court saying the company didn’t hire her because of her religion. 

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court will have to decide whether Abercrombie’s actions infringed on Elauf’s religious rights or if the failure to hire her is just the retailer sticking to a company look policy. This is not the first time the retailer has come under fire over its treatment of employees who wear the hijab. In 2010, Meni Khan sued the company for firing her after she declined to remove her hijab for work. Abercrombie argued that the look policy is the foundation of its brand, insinuating that allowing anyone to go outside those rules creates “undue hardship” for the retailer. (more…)

Mariacarla Boscono Captivates on Harper’s Bazaar Spain (Forum Buzz)

Our forum members made it clear that the Spanish edition of Harper’s Bazaar had become a bore. Now, after a new team was introduced to the title earlier this year, the first covers are out and are a huge success. Mariacarla Boscono stars on not one, but two covers for the magazine’s big March 2015 issue, giving us some fierce realness on both. We’re captivated by the cover with the red masthead (pictured below right), which we assume is for subscribers. The Italian stunner was photographed by Txema Yeste for the occasion and we’re loving it!

Forum members were quick to voice their views once they digested the covers. “Really really like the second one even if it reminds me of Vanessa Paradis for Vogue Paris,” posted Oxymore, making a comparison to a previous magazine cover.

“Love the second cover, way more striking. The first looks like a preview cover, and probably closer to the old Spanish Bazaar,” Benn98 responded.

Also showing some love was kokobombon: “I think that the covers are lovely, love the styling in both of them.”

Nepenthes shared the same sentiments: “Both covers are stunning. Mariacarla always has a very intense, magnetic presence!”

Harper’s Bazaar Spain is back!! So happy to see this magazine back on track. I’m personally not a huge fan of Mariacarla, but she looks quite electric here,” proclaimed marsnoop2.

The issue is sure to fly from the shelves. “They should have done just one cover. The second one is pretty good. Happy to see Eugenia as the editor in chief. She’s just great,” Creative credited.

Check out some previews of Mariacarla’s cover story and add your own two cents here.

Watch: Christina Aguilera Does a Spot-On Impression of Britney Spears

Christina Aguilera has an unbelievable singing voice and it turns out that belting out the high notes isn’t her only talent. She’s actually pretty good at impressions, too — or at least, she’s got her Britney Spears impression absolutely nailed. The singer appeared last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and played a little “Wheel of Musical Impressions,” a game in which the player has to sing a song in the style of a certain artist. 

When the wheel spun, prompting Christina to sing “This Little Piggy” as Britney, we get probably the best impression of Brit-Brit we’ve ever heard. Seriously. Close your eyes, and you think you’re actually listening to Britney.

Christina also does impressions of Cher and Shakira, but in our opinion, her Britney is tops. Watch Xtina in the hilarious clip above.

Terrorists Threaten to Target Canadian, US and UK Malls

Al-Shabaab, a Somali-based Islamic terrorist group, has released a video calling for an attack on malls in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. The faction is urging followers to target Minnesota’s Mall of America, Oxford Street and two Westfield locations in London, as well as the West Edmonton Mall in Canada. 

The group divulged coordinates for the Mall of America, so that militants may plan for attack. The West Edmonton Mall was listed as a goal for attack as it is the largest mall in North America. In the meantime, the Mall of America is on watch to make sure these threats do not come to fruition. “We will continue to monitor events with the help of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies,” the mall said in a statement. “As always, we take any potential threat seriously and respond appropriately.”

Let’s hope that none of this terrorist organization’s plans ever get off the ground.

Pringle of Scotland Launches Exhibition During LFW

With London Fashion Week in full swing, the quintessentially Scottish heritage brand Pringle of Scotland seized the opportunity to celebrate its 200th birthday by opening the Fully Fashioned: The Pringle of Scotland Story exhibition ahead of its runway show.

Located at the London Serpentine Gallery, the exhibition takes you on a journey through the brand’s heritage right back to the moment it was founded by the hosiery manufacturer Robert Pringle in 1815. As archival pieces fuse with the brand’s latest campaign shots within the exhibition, it’s amazing to see just how much Pringle of Scotland has evolved over the centuries. From its early lingerie molds to the Princess Grace of Monaco’s iconic cable-knit sweater, all of the pieces join together to form the heritage of a brand we have come to love. (more…)

Natasha Poly Goes Topless for Lui Magazine’s ‘Insane’ March Cover (Forum Buzz)

After we took offense to its cover last month, Lui magazine attempts to make it up to us with the release of the March 2015 cover. The raunchy French title tapped Natasha Poly, who follows the likes of Kate Moss, Gisele Bündchen and Laetitia Casta who’ve each previously flaunted their stuff for the magazine. This time around, we see Natasha going topless (obviously), while perched on a stylish chair as she’s captured by Luigi & Iango. We had better be treated to a cover story because we’re left wanting more!

Our forum members tell it like it is inside the thread. “Interesting… Can’t wait to see more,” enthused fashionlover2001 once the cover surfaced, getting us off on a positive note.

“Wowsa, I usually show love for the men but I’m Poly-amorous for this striking cover!” Aedlacir noted, who’s clearly an admirer.

The magazine managed to impress A.D.C., who complimented, “A return to form for Lui, finally.” Looks like the mag hit a home run with this one.

MON was also quick to congratulate: “Even though it’s nude, it doesn’t look like something for a porn calendar. Finally.”

“Nice. Lui is coming out with some of the best covers these days,” added ALAUU.

Forum member zacatecas570 showed his support. “She’s unstoppable! Go Natasha Poly!” he encouraged.

“This cover is INSANE! Natasha looks fierce!” mcmarket posted, sharing the same sentiments.
