Rebecca Judd Claims Shapewear is for Skinny Girls Too

Rebecca Judd is one very slender woman. Surely there’s no reason this blogger and model would ever turn to shapewear, right? Wrong. Rebecca has taken to her blog, Rebecca Judd Loves, to fight the misconception that shapewear is only for the plus-sized woman.

“I believe there are benefits to be had from wearing shapewear whether you’re skinny, plus sized, ‘average’ sized, post natal, the list goes on,” she wrote.

Rebecca claims to have used Nancy Ganz shapewear after the birth of both her children, and apparently also wears them now at her current size. She refers to her current body shape as “a skinny frame which is more akin to a 12 year old boy’s than a 31 year old woman’s!”

But it looks like shapewear helps give her, well, shape. She believes it lifts her bum, smooths bumps, and gives her a waist. “I have a very straight up and down figure, and a gentle lift of the booty and cinching of the waist makes me look and feel more womanly. I love it,” she wrote.

Emily Current and Meritt Elliott Return with New Women’s Line, The Great

When Emily Current and Meritt Elliott exited their eponymous denim brand Current/Elliott in 2012, the fashion world wondered if the pair would collaborate on a line together again. Today, it looks like we have our answer as the two designers have announced The Great, their new fashion venture that will debut at market this week.

The collection is 130-pieces strong and due to hit shelves for the Spring 2015 season. The only thing you won’t find in this collection? Denim. But don’t worry — the pair promises to offer a few styles next fall. For now, fans of Current and Elliott will have to do with the trouser-heavy collection, which combines masculine and feminine sensibilities to create a polished yet relaxed, All-American feel with a touch of Parisian flair. Expect striped button-ups alongside army-inspired pieces, but not without a dash of tulle and a helping of frills. Military-style embroidered jackets intermingle with smart, striped trousers and ruffled eyelet blouses — it’s a marriage of hard and soft, the perfect balance between tomboy and girly.

That’s not all for the design duo. In conjunction with their womenswear offering, they’re also releasing The Great Little, a line for girls priced around $100.

Elliott and Current are moving quickly with this new venture. E-commerce for The Great is supposed to be available come January, and prices will range from $95 to $1,395. 

We’re excited to see the line in full. We wager there will be plenty to drool over once the collection arrives in stores.

You’ll Be Able to Shop the BCBGMaxAzria and Hervé Léger Collections Straight from the Runway This Season

Sometimes, fashion week seems like one big window shopping expedition — and over the years, brands have increasingly turned the affair into just that. Thanks to websites like Moda Operandi, shoppers with expensive tastes can get dibs on all of next season’s flyest threads with just a few clicks of the mouse.

This season, BCBGMaxAzria and Hervé Léger are speeding up the process in partnership with RewardStyle’s LiketoKnow:It. The platform will make the Instagram photos of a handful of influencers from both brands’ Spring 2015 shows shoppable for anyone looking to snap up a few choice pieces for next spring before they hit stores. A total of 13 looks will be available for purchase and if users “like” an image with any one of the digital options, they will be sent an email with purchasing details. 

Sounds dangerous! Considering BCBGMaxAzria’s pieces aren’t as pricey as, say, something you can get from Prabal Gurung, this seems like the perfect platform for the brand to start selling the newest crop of wares. We predict more than a few impulse, heat-of-the-runway-moment buys with this one!

Vogue Australia Goes Mad for Catherine McNeil with Its October Issue (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Australia has tapped a sultry-looking Catherine McNeil as its October cover girl. The team collaborated with Jean Paul Gaultier and enlisted the photographic expertise of Gilles Bensimon to shoot the model wearing a piece from the Gaultier archives. The show-stopping archival piece was selected by the magazine’s Senior Fashion Editor Christine Centenera.

Members of our forums are delighted with the outcome. “I’ve been waiting for this and I’m glad to say it does not disappoint. Cat is just woooow. I love the horizontal lines as well, nice to see a new creative angle. Should have been the September cover!” raved HeatherAnne.

“It’s finally out! As soon as I opened this thread, I knew you would’ve been pleased with the results. The Bensimon + Vogue Australia pairing certainly does not disappoint,” replied AL92.

“STUNNING! The makeup may be a little harsh, but the pose, the dress, it all looks sublime!” offered an excited marsnoop2.

“This looks great! Like a very ICONIC cover from back in the day. I may need a copy,” declared Khabeer.

Thanks to a review kindly compiled by AL92, we know that Catherine also snagged each of the four fashion editorials inside. “Wow [an] entire issue of Cat? Yes please! So Happy about this,” exclaimed Miss Dalloway.

“Yes! Sounds incredible, glad to see them recognize that Bensimon has done great work for them lately by giving him a cover and 2 editorials. Dying to see Horne‘s (as usual) piece as well,” added HeatherAnne.

Kim Kardashian Named GQ UK’s Woman of the Year, Doesn’t Let Anyone Forget Her Last Name Is Now West

GQ U.K. just awarded Kim Kardashian the second most important title she’s gotten from a magazine this year. She basked in high-fashion glory on the cover of Vogue as one-half of the #worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple, and now she’s been named the ladmag’s Woman of the Year.

A likely bewigged blond Kim smoulders on the cover in a close-cropped shot. The focus is on her face, rather than those famous curves (although we get to see some of those in the spread). The reality star fêted her big issue at a red carpet event in London yesterday, dressed in a custom Ralph & Russo bustier and sheer, high-waisted chain mail skirt — because a Woman of the Year is required to show her knickers every once in a while.

Kim officially accepted her award at the ceremony, but while she was initially bestowed the honor as Kim Kardashian, she wants everyone to know that’s not her name anymore. She Instagrammed an image of the place cards from the event, on which she is referred to by her maiden name. “Who?” the reality star captioned the photo.

Girl, you know full well “who” they’re talking about.

First Time for Everything: Rosamund Pike Is UK Vogue’s October Cover Star (Forum Buzz)

The September issues may still be fresh on your coffee table, but the October issues are starting to surface on our forums already. U.K. Vogue released its October 2014 cover earlier today, and to our amazement, it features Rosamund Pike. The Gone Girl actress was shot by Alasdair McLellan and styled by Kate Phelan. Surprisingly, this is the first Vogue cover for the 35-year-old mother-to-be.

Our forum members are more than satisfied to see Rosamund score a Vogue cover. “Yes! Very surprising choice but I’m crazy about Rosamund. She’s so underrated and really deserves this. Quite like everything here. Will certainly be getting this,” wrote Benn98.  

“Finally, she is on the cover of Vogue… very well deserved. If you’d like to know my humble opinion, I think she should have had a couple more by now,” agreed KissMiss.

“Her expression is a bit off but I’m just so excited to see her on the cover of Vogue,” pixiedust1603 said, shifting discussion toward the actual cover.

TaylorBinque thinks Vogue should have stepped up its game: “Very happy for Rosamund Pike but this cover is so boring. Can they do something more exciting?”

“It’s such a random and ‘non-covery’ image for a cover. And not in a good way either. It looks more like an outtake than a UK Vogue cover shot,” ranted MyNameIs.

GlamorousBoy doesn’t think the cover is season-appropriate and wrote, “This is better than the September cover but I don’t get the styling, it is not autumn at all — I mean bare shoulders? Seriously?”

The issue comes with the Miss Vogue supplement, featuring a trio of models on the cover, including Malaika Firth, Hollie-May Saker and Matilda Lowther. Of course, the cover can be viewed inside the thread. Don’t forget to check it out and share your own opinion with us here.
