Is Natasha Poly the Campaign Queen of Spring 2015? (Forum Buzz)

Natasha Poly is raking in the campaigns this Spring 2015 season. She joined the likes of Kendall Jenner and Adriana Lima for Marc Jacobs’ new campaign, scored the Isabel Marant fashion spots solo and is now the face of Emilio Pucci. After Natasha exclusively walked for the show during Milan Fashion Week, it should come as no surprise that the Russian beauty was Peter Dundas’ choice of model. Photographed by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Natasha poses among a set of mirrors, giving us a view of all the angles in the 70s-inspired ads.

Members of our forums were quick to voice their opinions. “This looks cheap,” commented congacon within moments of the campaign surfacing, which wasn’t a good start to the thread.

“It might be because it’s blurry, but she looks old as hell in that pic. The bangs don’t help,” added an uninterested jj36.

Forum member gazebo simply described the campaign as “stale.”

Also making a remark about her hairstyle was Benn98: “Don’t like the bangs. The entire campaign looks dated.”

“Talk about anticlimactic. Natasha had two stunning exits at the show and this is what they do for the campaign? Why couldn’t they have stuck with the look of the show and shot on location? Very disappointing. That said, I’m really happy for Natasha getting campaigns like there’s no tomorrow! That’s a supermodel right there!” noted Nepenthes in agreement that the campaign seemed a little dated.

“I love this! I love the kaleidoscopic/psychedelic feel of the campaign. It was meant to complement the clothes and I feel like it really does!” khyrk approved, changing the mood of the thread.

Oxymore enthused, “I love it! Natasha is the perfect model for that kind of campaign.”

Watch: What Happens When This Fictional Beauty Brand Runs Out of Makeup Names

We’ve got to give beauty brands props because with all the cosmetics out there, it must be difficult thinking up new names. With products like Butt Taco and Stalkerazzi floating around, it’s pretty clear that assigning names to makeup shades is no easy feat. A new short by the Upright Citizens Brigade’s sketch team The Punch lampoons this phenomenon.

Set in the offices of imaginary makeup brand Perée Lyon, four beauty executives struggle to come up with a name for a new product — and all the suggestions, no matter how crazy, are taken. In the end, the team winds up settling on a name that is as ridiculous as it is long.

Watch the hilarious skit above.

Some Sicko Is Selling T-Shirts Printed with Kurt Cobain’s Suicide Note

Sometimes it seems like people go out of their way to test the limits of tastelessness. A sleeveless tank with Kurt Cobain’s handwritten suicide note printed across the front was spied by a Redditor on Etsy, though it has since been taken down. But don’t worry — if you were trying to get your hands on the offensive tee, you can still purchase it on eBay in a baseball style for $25.19. The eBay seller nuchyk notes that the top is “Not Official T-Shirt, 100% made by me.” Who knows why anyone would want to broadcast being the designer of such a horrible piece.

The eBay shop attached to the seller’s name offers several shirts in this and other styles, emblazoned with images of celebrities, pop culture references and bands. The shirts are mostly innocuous, so this loathsome “homage” is pretty glaring in comparison to the other inventory.

Nuchyk has already sold 16 of the shirts, so um, we guess there is a demand out there? Either way, these shirts are icky at best.

Chloe Taps Clémence Poésy to Tell Its Love Story

Who better to tell a very French love story than Clémence Poésy? According to the folks at Chloe, no one. The actress was tapped as the face of the label’s new fragrance, Love Story.

We see Clémence flitting through Paris with a hot young thang on her arm, from rooftop parties to late-night karaoke, the actress and her beau traipse through the city making out and riding bikes as Clémence somehow winds up with a huge bottle of the fragrance by the end of the Mélanie Laurent-shot spot.

This isn’t Clémence’s first time to the Chloe rodeo. The actress was previously the face of the label’s eau de parfum from 2008 to 2010. She describes this new scent as “a bit more grown up than the signature scent” with this one “walking that thin line between flowery and fresh.”

Watch Clémence and her boo whip around Paris in the video above.

Vogue Paris Gets a Makeover for 2015, Anna Ewers Stars on February Cover (Forum Buzz)

Inès de La Fressange’s double issue of Vogue Paris is soon to disappear from newsstands as the magazine gears up for the release of its brand new February issue. Emmanuelle Alt decided to give the magazine a makeover and hired Paris-based art directors Pierre Consorti and Zachary Ohlman to spruce up the magazine’s layout. Anna Ewers poses on the cover in Saint Laurent, captured by David Sims, with Alt on styling duty. The cover marks a second for the German model who previously fronted the magazine’s August 2014 issue. Alt sure does have her favorites!

Are our forum members impressed with the revamp? “I’m loving the fact that they went back to using the Carine era font. At least this isn’t a boring run of the mill cover like everyone else is doing. I can’t wait to see the collections editorial, they’re always my favorite,” posted an impressed GivenchyHomme.

“Personally, I think this looks fantastic. It is not your run-of-the-mill cover — Anna looks playful; there is a sense of humor to this. The new design also seems to reference the creative direction under Fabien Baron circa mid-2000s , which I appreciate,” added AL92.

LastNight shows much enthusiasm and writes, “I really love this a lot. I love the energy, it’s fun and a bit quirky. I love the color of the masthead and I LOVE the font, it looks so much better, really nicely designed cover. I might actually buy this!”

But not everyone’s in favor of the redesign. “It all works here, it’s fun, and Anna [has] captured the right energy. However, the new art direction is not good! Feels dated,” noted Miss Dalloway.

MON disapproves: “Can’t believe they hired two art directors and gave out that output. Anyone in the Cover Challenge can be paid then and do better.”

Maison Martin Margiela Pulls a Saint Laurent with New Name Change

There have been many changes at the house of Margiela since John Galliano was hired as its creative director, but The New York Times‘ Vanessa Friedman picked up on another small but major alteration at the label. Maison Martin Margiela quietly updated the name it has used since it was founded about 27 years ago to simply Maison Margiela. 

 

A photo posted by Vogue (@voguemagazine) on

The change appeared on yesterday’s show notes without any fanfare, blink and you may have missed it. Much like when Hedi Slimane took over at what we now know as Saint Laurent, Margiela has adopted a similar move for its new creative director. A rep for Maison Margiela noted that the new name “reflects the evolution of the house.” Friedman points out that Margiela did not make an official announcement regarding the name change and in some respects, we think that’s appropriate for a house that has traditionally kept the identity of its designers anonymous, prior to Galliano. A quiet change seems to be just its style.
