For Your Information: Shailene Woodley Explains Why She’s Not a Feminist

Shailane Woodley Divergent autographs

Because there's nothing better than hearing the uninformed opinion of a young performer on a thorny, complex topic such as feminism, TIME Magazine decided to chat with Divergent star Shailene Woodley about her feminist principles — or lack thereof. 

Unlike fellow celebs Beyonce, Lena Dunham, Miley Cyrus, et al., Woodley does not identify as a feminist, chiefly because she doesn't really seem to understand what "feminism" means. She tells TIME

"I love men, and I think the idea of ‘raise women to power, take the men away from the power’ is never going to work out because you need balance. With myself, I’m very in touch with my masculine side. And I’m 50 percent feminine and 50 percent masculine, same as I think a lot of us are. And I think that is important to note. And also I think that if men went down and women rose to power, that wouldn’t work either. We have to have a fine balance."

Totally. Feminism is not a movement championing equality for women in an often sexist, historically patriarchal world, it is a system of belief dedicated to oppressing and imprisoning men for the sake of female supremacy. Glad we've cleared that up. Can someone please call Gloria Steinem

Vogue China’s June Cover Goes to Faye Wong (Forum Buzz)

Chinese-Hong Kong singer-songwriter and actress Faye Wong has landed the cover of Vogue China's June issue. Photographed by Emma Summerton and wearing a top and skirt from Céline's Pre-Fall collection, the cover is very minimal, which is always a welcome surprise, right?

Perhaps not for our forum members, who were not so forgiving. Bertrando3 laced right into the cover, writing, "It's an awkward cover that could have worked but actually doesn't: the pose doesn't help first of all, then the white background with the white blouse, the black skirt which appears too strong and makes her look big, the layout is barely working and her facial impression is like: 'doubt.' It doesn't work for me as a cover, but it's not awful."

"The pose is really awkward and her facial expression doesn't help at all," commented fluxxx.

Kuli trendy was pleased to see Wong: "I don't care with the pose… I'm just surprised it's Faye Wong on the cover of VC…"

"I love Faye. She definitely deserves a Vogue China cover, and she looks gorgeous here," wrote JoCaderone.

As did gossiping, who wrote, "Love what she is wearing, very clean cover. I like!"

Emma Mulholland Brings Her 80s Surf Game to Sunglasses

Emma Mulholland makes her own rules. If others are looking to minimalism, she’ll look to iguanas fighting in the Mexican desert. It is fitting then, that as most of us are heading into winter, she’s designing a line of sunglasses.

You've seen the shades from a distance already. They were on the runway at her show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, along with many other eye-catching pieces. In between the binder clip bags, wig hats and pastel sequined swimsuits, it was often difficult to know where to look. (Artful eye assault is a recurring theme for the designer.)

But those shades though. They’re part of a collaboration with local label Pared, and look so much better up close. Riffing off the same 80s John Huges and Melanie Griffiths' Working Girl inspirations as the rest of the collection, some skew simple, with classic fronts, subtly mirrored lenses and lightning bolt arms, while others staunchly have the look of 80s surf and street culture.

Best of all? You can buy them now. Pair with a bowl cut wig for peak Mulholland girl steez

Mert & Marcus Photograph Gucci’s Pre-Fall Campaign With a ‘Basic’ Result (Forum Buzz)

Gucci regulars Anja Rubik and Clement Chabernaud are back fronting the Italian fashion house's Pre-Fall advertising campaign. The ads are lensed by Turkish duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, who aren't exactly strangers to Gucci either. They've stripped the campaign this season, going right back to basics with no gimmicks and zero signs of heavy post-production. Anja and Clement are seen posing in a studio, against a classic grey background to complement the vibrant clothes designed by Frida Giannini.

Forum members are not letting the new direction go down easy. "I cannot believe how basic these Gucci campaigns have become. The last one I absolutely loved was Spring 2013. Everything after that has been so uninspired and underwhelming," writes valliaddict.

"This is soooo boring. Like everybody said, it looks like a lookbook, and not even for an A-list brand like Gucci," commented anlabe32 who went on to say, "That said, Anja and Clement look nice. And so does the clothing."

Check out the thread and some more images from the campaign here.
