Suvi Koponen Stars on Vogue Germany’s Messy February Cover (Forum Buzz)

Suvi Koponen is usually a safe bet for a striking Vogue cover. But on Vogue Germany’s messy February cover, not even her appearance can save the cover from being a disaster. In what tFS forum member Mat Cyruss calls a “complementary color nightmare,” the Finnish topmodel is wearing a Valentino Spring 2014 outfit and is surrounded by a clutter of text in matching colors.

“They are seriously crazy. Who approved this design?!” asked a shocked Royal-Galliano

Similar sentiments were shared by A.D.C.. He wrote, “This looks seriously amateur… If an art student turned this in it probably wouldn't even get a passing grade. I made better covers in seventh grade using Photoshop.”

"The colors of the print on the cover are horrendous, makes Suvi look so washed out and dull," commented tarantino

The accompanying collections editorial shot by photographers Knoepfel & Indlekofer and starring Suvi also failed to excite.

“I appreciate the simplicity of the main cover story. I just feel perhaps Suvi lacks the conviction necessary to carry such editorial…a bit too vacant looking?” posted AL92

Forum members, however, agreed that the styling (by Nicola Knels) in the editorial was strong enough to make the cover story work anyway and also found other editorials in the issue to be making up for the poor cover. ‘Femme Universelle’ featuring Katlin Aas, and ‘Signalreize’ starring various redheaded models (including Maggie Rizer!), were both well-received on the forums.

Drake and OVO Collaborate on Raptor’s Apparel for One Night Only

Drake OVO 3

Over the weekend, the Toronto Raptors hosted “Drake Night,” an evening dedicated to the team’s global ambassador as they faced off against the Brooklyn Nets. Notwithstanding earlier reports that Drake himself wouldn’t be in attendance at said “Drake Night,” not only did the hometown rapper show face, he also brought his new apparel collaboration of the Raptors x OVO T-shirt that was given away to all the fans who turned up to the big game. Those very T-shirts look a little something like this…

The new shirt is all part of Drake’s rebranding efforts for the Raptors, with the design oozing the same black and gold colour scheme associated with Drizzy’s music label, October’s Very Own. There’s also a dinosaur mascot balling through block-lettered "OVO" and "416" designs, making this shirt not only a coveted piece of sporting memorabilia, but also a fashionable addition to any styled-to-rock ensemble. Hopefully it’s a sign of new things to come as the basketball team consider an even more dramatic redesign under Drake’s guidance; particularly in anticipation of the 2016 NBA All-Star Game that will be hosted in Toronto.

"Exclusive OVO Raptors shirt for everyone attending! Me and @futuretheprince hosting/Dj'ing at halftime! Birth of the 416 section! #Raptors #416 #Toronto," Drizzy wrote on Instagram ahead of the big night, but if you couldn’t make it out to the game, be sure to keep an eye out for the limited-edition tees on eBay, Kijiji or Craigslist. Their prices are predictably rising fast.

Watch: Cara Delevingne Brings In BFF Jourdan Dunn for YSL Beauty Video Campaign

We've been treated to plenty of Cara Delevingne's print work for the latest batch of YSL Beauty ads and now, we've spotted a preview of the campaign's video component, starring the British model and her close friend, Jourdan Dunn, for the brand's Touche Eclat complexion highlighter. 

Delevingne posted a clip from the video to Instagram. The caption is light on details, heavy on feeling: "Preview of something very special with my love @officialjdunn looking HOT! I am missing you like crazy!!!!! ❤❤❤ #doubleDs4life."

A slightly longer version of the video was leaked to YouTube (above). It shows the models dressed in glamorous Saint Laurent pieces, dancing around a giant empty ballroom to a cover of "Tainted Love." For fun, they rub each others faces with the highlighter pen. The product retails for $40

Parental Advisory: What is Anna Ewers Doing in a Bathroom for Alexander Wang’s Billboard Ad?

After teasing his Spring 2014 campaign with a shot of Anna Ewers and Zuzu Tadeushuk's feet poking out from under some toilet stalls, Alexander Wang has released the main campaign image, slated to appear on a billboard on Lafayette Street and Great Jones Street in New York City.

Photographed by Steven Klein, Ewers is pictured sitting in a toilet sink, hair messy and legs spread, styled in a full look from the label's Spring 2014 collection (originally modeled by Georgia May Jagger).

Wang isn't the only designer who set this season's ads in a restroom (Rihanna posed against similar white, square tiles for Balmain), but he's only one whose campaign concept revolves around cruising for sex. I'm pretty sure that's what's going on here, right?

Oh Boy: Sports Illustrated Photographs Kate Upton in Zero Gravity for Swimsuit Issue

This year, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition is publishing its 50th anniversary issue. To celebrate half a century of half-naked ladies, the publication has reportedly photographed Kate Upton in zero gravity. 

The model was catapulted to fame after she was selected for the SI Swimsuit Issue cover in 2012 (she appeared on the cover a second time, last year). 

Although she was the target of plenty of heated criticism (the Victoria's Secret casting director famously said Upton had "the kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy"), Upton quickly moved from men's magazines to general interest and fashion publications, landing the covers of several editions of Vogue, including US, UK, Italia and Brazil.

Sources told Page Six that "Upton was shot in a zero-gravity chamber in a silver swimsuit with weightless ample bosom and big hair that made her 'look like something out of Barbarella.'”

The publication suggests that the idea might have originated on the Jimmy Fallon show last year, following the release of the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. The late night host joked that Upton should be photographed in space. "“Think about this," he said, "there’s no gravity.”

"Next year," Upton told him. 

The exchange starts at 1:41 in the video below. 

Page Six reports that the 50th anniversary issue will also include legendary cover stars such as Christie Brinkley, Tyra Banks, Carol Alt and Bar Refaeli.
