Vogue Germany’s February Cover Is Everything We Like and More! (Forum Buzz)

Rarely does the cover of a fashion magazine thrill us as much as Vogue Germany’s February 2015 issue. The glossy released the cover via its website just before the weekend and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Photographed by Camilla Akrans, Vanessa Moody lands her first solo Vogue cover. On styling duties was Nicola Knels, who opted for the American newcomer to wear a Minnie Mouse-esque ensemble, consisting of a red polka dot blouse complemented by an oversized hat, both from Saint Laurent.

It should come as no surprise that our forum members are loving the cover. “Amazing! I love it. Cool layout that doesn’t distract from the image. I like the pose and the covered eye,” complimented kokobombon as soon as the cover surfaced.

“Loving this cover. The lighting and the colors are so appealing,” agreed TREVOFASHIONISTO.

CATO was also clearly an admirer and echoed, “That’s what I call an outstanding and splendid cover! Applause Vogue Germany.”

Also enthusiastic was Nepenthes: “YES! This is what a Vogue cover should feel like! Everything works perfectly and I’m thrilled for Vanessa!”

“I’ve said for the longest that Vogue Germany has more appealing covers than the rest and this is proof!” raved Breathless.

“Now that is Vogue. That is what a cover should look like!! Holy!! Everything is perfect. Even the layout!!” enthused MON, agreeing with everyone else.

For the sake of variety, not everyone was so ecstatic. “I can never tell what year we’re in with Vogue Germany. Their covers seem to exist in some sort of time warp where the year could be 1985, 1995, 2005, or 2015. The cover could transport itself to any of those years and it would still fit perfectly OK [on] the newsstand without raising an eyebrow,” posted A.D.C.

Forum member thecpatient fired back: “Wow, I like it! It looks like some cover from [the] 80s or 90s.”

Frida Giannini Leaves Gucci Early

We thought that we would be saying goodbye to Gucci creative director Frida Giannini in a few weeks, but it looks like the designer will be packing her bags at the Italian fashion house much sooner. WWD reports that Giannini was asked to leave the label on Friday.

Giannini was due to show her final men’s collection for the brand on January 19 and was originally set to depart Gucci after showing her last women’s collection for the label in Milan at the end of next month. Sources say that Gucci let her go early in order to facilitate finding a successor. Rumor has it that Gucci is looking to promote one of its own as a replacement, head accessory designer Alessandro Michele. Other names have been whispered since the initial announcement of Giannini’s departure, including Emilio Pucci’s Peter Dundas and Joseph Altuzarra. 

Gucci has already chosen Marco Bizzarri, parent company Kering’s former head of luxury couture and leather goods, to replace former CEO Patrizio di Marco.

Isabel Marant Taps Natasha Poly for Fierce New Ad Campaign (Forum Buzz)

The Spring 2015 campaigns continue to trickle out and the latest to surface on our forums is from Isabel Marant. WWD released the images earlier today and our forum members are currently deliberating Marant’s edgy new fashion spots. Natasha Poly takes over from Gisele Bündchen and stars in the campaign lensed by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. The idea behind the campaign was for the French label to be shown in a more dynamic light as Natasha plays the role of a modern and urban warrior, sporting oversized jackets, miniskirts and sandals with her hair scooped up into a top knot, projecting an effortlessly cool look.

Are forum members wild about Natasha’s fierce warrior? “Beautiful but it’s like a Vogue Paris editorial with David Sims,” posted MON, setting the tone for the discussion.

“I see what you mean but it doesn’t bother me. The closeup looks gorgeous but I can’t stand the logo across her face,” responded Nepenthes in agreement.

Also citing the logo was TheoG: “Natasha makes it exciting, wish the logo wasn’t slapped across her face.”

“Wtf? This is so not Isabel Marant to me. Hate the pose, hate the logo over her face. Odd,” echoed gossiping.

“It’s very Sims and very editorial. Seems like still life is the thing of the season. Still, it’s an improvement for sure but I would have liked to see someone else,” added anlabe32.

“Isabel Marant is a very consistent brand. Her castings are always very exclusive and she always gets the big girls! I can see the Vogue Paris influences in this. I kinda like it even if it’s not very memorable.” noted Lola701, changing the mood of the thread, but failing to change the opinion of most of our forum members.

Does This Instagram Mean Beyoncé Is Pregnant?

Beyoncé is the queen of surprise releases and subliminal messages, so it’s no wonder people are freaking out over one of her recent Instagram posts. This weekend, the singer posted an image of herself buried in the sand with a pregnant belly built over her body. Now, is Bey pregnant or is she just messing with us?

Back in September, folks began speculating whether the singer was with child when her husband Jay Z changed the lyrics of “Beach Is Better” to “she’s pregnant with another one” during a show in Paris. Obviously, this Instagram post is only going to add to the whispers. We don’t have an official announcement yet, but if this is Beyoncé’s way of telling us the real royal baby number two (sorry Kate Middleton) is on the way, then it’s a very cute way of making the big reveal.

Did you miss Cathy Horyn since she left her post at The New York Times last February? So did we. The legendary critic departed to help care for her ailing partner, Art Ortenberg, who soon passed after her exit. Horyn has been working on a book for Rizzoli, but now has another project on her plate. WWD reveals that the critic will be lending her talents to New York Magazine‘s The Cut, covering the fall and spring runways in New York and Paris. 

Horyn will be The Cut’s critic-at-large this year, with potential for her contract to be extended into 2016. Horyn won’t be able to write about fashion for anyone else during her tenure, though she is allowed to work on her book.

This morning, the fashion world was buzzing with the news that the beloved critic would be returning to Fashion Week. Horyn tweeted, “People, let’s meet at the circle of love…I mean, NY Fashion Week! Pleased to say I’ll be covering shows @TheCut.”

We can’t wait to hear Horyn’s fresh, sometimes biting, point of view on this (and next) season’s collections.

Caitlin Stasey Goes Fully Nude for New Feminist Website

Caitlin Stasey should be very proud of herself: a) she just launched a website, and b) she posed naked for said website. Both things take a lot of courage, that goes without saying, but the reasoning behind these acts are both inspiring and admirable.

The 24-year-old Australian actress, who is best known for her roles in Neighbours, Tomorrow When the War Began and CW’s Reign, is bringing issues surrounding body image, sexuality and gender roles to the table through her newly launched herself.com, hailing the website as “a gesture to women for women by women”.
