Ouch! Vogue Thailand’s September Cover ‘Could Be an ELLE Cover’ (Forum Buzz)

In what seems to be a never-ending cavalcade of September covers, we now take a look at what Vogue Thailand produced for the most important issue of the year. For September 2014, the magazine enlisted Hana Jirickova as its cover model, who was shot by David Bellemere. The 23-year-old model from the Czech Republic is no stranger to his lens; they’ve shot together on numerous occasions for both French and Spanish Vogue. This time around, the pair took to the streets and riverbanks of Paris to showcase the season’s new pieces. On the cover, we see Hana model an outfit from Louis Vuitton, while posing on some steps leading down to the riverfront.

It seems our forum members share mixed opinions regarding the cover. “What a depressing ugly cover. Could be an ELLE cover,” commented an underwhelmed jeffandtheworld.

“It´s depressing indeed. The styling and layout are horrible, there’s nothing eye catching about this…” agreed kokobombon.

Valentine27 shared, “I’m with you regarding the depressing feeling of the cover. One or two good images in the editorial but that’s it. ‘Paris, c’est chic!’ is such a boring theme and it feels like we’ve seen it a hundred times before.”

“I quite like Hana, so no complaints from me. Sure the image doesn’t work as a cover but she looks good regardless, they could’ve chosen another shot from that ed. It’s quite novel of them to showcase an autumn backdrop other than your standard ‘girl in a forest’ vibe,” posted Benn98.

We did have a select group of members who admired the cover, however. “I love this girl! It’s a nice cover, I don’t like the text — it doesn’t flatter the picture at all, but the styling is great (especially the shoes),” exclaimed Srdjan.

GlamorousBoy was impressed: “I am shocked how good [a] cover it is for VT!”

A little over a week ago, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, aka IRL Mr. and Mrs. Smith, finally tied the knot after several years of dating and raising their brood, which is six kids strong. The news came as a surprise to pretty much everyone – they wed in secret at the Château Miraval in France, with their children playing a huge part in the ceremony. Jolie even enlisted Atelier Versace tailor Luigi Massi to create her gown, which was embroidered with pictures drawn by her many kids.

But while everyone made a fuss over Angelina’s very sweet frock, poor Brad’s ensemble got overlooked. If you were wondering what the groom was wearing, we now have the answer. For his big day, Pitt got dapper in a Salvatore Ferragamo suit. According to Ferragamo’s people, the actor donned a 2-button navy suit with a notch lapel. 

Mystery solved!

Chiara Ferragni’s Shoe Collection is Going to Make Her a LOT of Money

Who says blogging doesn’t pay? It’s making The Blonde Salad’s Chiara Ferragni a cute little coin. She launched her website five years ago, an anniversary which she will fete tonight, and no doubt about it, the blogger has a lot to celebrate. Besides the fact that she’s enjoyed wild success and lofty opportunities through her blog presence, she’s moved on to designing shoes, launching the Chiara Ferragni Collection, which according to WWD, is about to make her very, very rich.

The line, comprised mostly of whimsical sparkly loafers, is expected to do $8 million in revenue, which sounds like a big number, but when you consider the breadth of Ferragni’s success with shoes, should come as little surprise. Her collaboration with Steve Madden sold 16,000 pairs in just two weeks. Her collaboration with Superga followed suit, selling out in only a few weeks. If anything, the girl knows how to sell some shoes. 

Ferragni recently made her shoe collection available in the United States, debuting her offerings for Fall 2014 at the Magic tradeshow that went down in Las Vegas. Sure, The Blonde Salad blog makes plenty of cash, but the real money for Ferragni is cearly in the shoe biz.

A Sultry Alessandra Ambrosio Stuns on Harper’s Bazaar Australia’s October Cover (Forum Buzz)

A sultry Alessandra Ambrosio has stunned our forum members on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Australia. For the magazine’s October 2014 edition, Simon Upton shot the Brazilian beauty for “The Body Issue.” The cover story sure does sell us on the idea of a toned, athletic and sculpted body, and forum members are ecstatic with the results. Alessandra is shot up against a dark gray studio backdrop, and is also seen inside the issue donning formfitting pieces from Prada, Gucci and Alex Perry.

A few previews were first uploaded onto the thread, which turned out to be the cover for subscribers (pictured above), and forum members fell in love. “Stunning! Not a fan of the hair, but she looks so powerful and strong, can’t wait to see more!” enthused marsnoop2.

“I love it. I usually don’t like Ale, but here she looks natural and I love the sexiness of this Prada look,” noted gazebo.

Srdjan noticed how consistent the Australian edition of Bazaar has become: “They are really good, gotta be one of the best Bazaar editions.”

Bertrando3 also seemed satisfied and posted, “It looks very 90s and she does remind me of a young Elsa Benitez here.”

“I like how fresh faced they made her. It’s a nice change of pace for her,” complimented lelaid, who later came back to the thread. “She looks great with all the glamour and glitz stripped away. It’s very refreshing,” he added.

GIVENCHYlover went so far as to say, “One of her best editorials so far!”

With thanks to our savvy forum members, the full editorial and a behind-the-scenes video can be viewed inside the thread. You can also check out the newsstand cover and share your own opinion here.

Raf Simons to Show Christian Dior Spring 2015 at the Louvre

We always expect Raf SimonsChristian Dior shows to be a spectacle — who could forget last year’s stunning display at the Kew Gardens greenhouse where he covered the place in flowers? Or the designer’s grand debut for the house, when he built a set made entirely from blooms? If it’s one thing Simons knows, it’s how to put on a show, and Spring 2015 is expected to be another exciting display for showgoers. 

WWD reports that Dior is all set to debut its latest collection in one of Paris’ most famous landmarks: The Louvre. The show will take place in the museum’s west wing at the Cour Carrée, where Simons is expected to build some sort of structure to house the show.

It is indeed very fitting that Simons would show his wares — which in themselves will probably be like works of art — in the same place where the Mona Lisa is housed. We have no doubts it will be a sight to see.
