InStyle January 2014: It’s Britney!

If you've just woken up from a months-long Ambien trip, let me fill you in on Britney Spears' latest doings: The pop star recently turned 32 years old, released a new album (to mostly terrible reviews) and is gearing up for the debut of her Las Vegas residency. Also, her song "Work Bitch" played as the soundtrack at the Prada Spring 2014 runway show (Miuccia Prada has the Midas Touch for cultural relevance). Yes, the formerly fallen star has emerged from her twenties as a confident, powerful woman. Your inner 6th grader must be so proud. Put on your flared jeans, baby — Britney Spears is back!

In that vein, here she is on the cover of InStyle's January 2014 Issue, wearing Dior. "This Is YOUR Year!" reads the accompanying caption, speaking at once to the viewer and to Britney herself, who appears happy, smiling and slathered in Photoshop effects. Our year, indeed.

Christy Turlington is 90s Perfection on UK Harper’s Bazaar January 2014 (Forum Buzz)

If the already released January covers are any indication for what direction magazines will be following in the new year, then it’s safe to assume we will finally see more models covering major magazines again. In addition to Joan Smalls on US Elle and Cara Delevingne on UK Vogue, we also got an ever-so-beautiful Christy Turlington appearing on UK Harper’s Bazaar. One of the original supermodels, Turlington delivers a “perfect 90s cover,” according to tFS forum member Srdjan. Photographer Alexi Lubomirski shot two covers with Ms. Turlington for this issue, a black/white cover for subscribers (pictured above) and another one for the newsstand version of the magazine (pictured below).

Opinions on the tFS forums on both covers were divided.

“One of my all time favorites, and it still feels good to see her name on the covers of magazines! THIS is how you open the year, gorgeous effortless shot of her for [the subscribers cover],” commented Miss Dalloway

“Christy looks stunning! Interesting play with shadows and lighting on the subscribers cover,” added mikel

But vogue28, who received the subscribers cover, was one of the few members who preferred the newsstand version. He wrote, “Must admit that I'm not terribly fond of the subs cover. The lighting looks horrendous and makes Turlington's skin color look completely inaccurate. It's crossed the line of being something different for me. The newsstand cover, however, is glorious. I'll definitely be heading out and picking up a newsstand copy.”

I think Christy looks gorgeous on both cover, but the classic 90s feel of the newsstand edition is what really wins me over here. Which cover do you prefer?

Kate Moss Celebrated at the British Fashion Awards 2013

On Monday, fashion royalty descended upon London town in order to attend the British Fashion Council’s prestigious British Fashion Awards. Previous years have acknowledged many of the industry’s favourites like Cara Delevingne as Model of the Year, Alexa Chung as Style Icon (which she was crowned for three consecutive years), and even Victoria Beckham’s transition into a much sought-after fashion designer by awarding her the Designer Brand of the Year.

This year, it was all about Kate Moss who received a Special Recognition award for her career in fashion. Perfectly styled as always, she attended the awards in a cool leather dress, white fur coat and heels.

We were sad to see Cara Delevingne lose her crown this year, as the beautiful Edie Campbell was named Model of the Year… But she definitely deserved the recognition as her career is certainly gaining momentum. First appearing in a British Vogue shoot by Mario Testino, she’s gone on to feature in ad campaigns for leading brands such as Burberry and Stella McCartney, and was even asked to close the Spring 2014 Chanel Haute Couture show.

The New Establishment Designer award was given to the very talented JW Anderson, a designer that we’ve been tipping for big things for quite some time now. We can’t wait to see what plans he’s got tucked up his sleeve for the forthcoming year.

Sadly, Miss Chung was also nowhere to be seen amongst this year’s winners, and in the personal style stakes, One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles walked away with the public voted British Style Award. There’s no denying that he does dress well, but let’s face it, the others stood no chance with all of the those little One Direction fans casting their votes!

Head over to the British Fashion Awards’ site to check out the full list of winners.
