Alicia Vikander Is W Magazine’s April Cover Star, Who Would’ve Guessed? (Forum Buzz)

On a regular basis, you’ll hear us ranting that magazines continue to give us the same recycled cover stars. Yet W magazine managed to surprise us by delivering a relatively unknown actress for its April 2015 cover. Alicia Vikander stars on the magazine’s newly-released cover, captured by Willy Vanderperre for W‘s latest installment. On the cover image, the current girlfriend of Michael Fassbender dons a crisp white dress from Louis Vuitton with stylist of the shoot Edward Enninful teaming the creation with a black bow headband by Giambattista Valli. In a bid to spice things up, an eye-catching psychedelic masthead was layered over the conservative cover image.

Are our forum members impressed? “I love her! I’m glad she’s getting this exposure, hopefully not for her relationship cause she’s excellent as an actress, and I’ve been wanting to learn Danish after A Royal Affair thanks to her,” commented MulletProof.

“Who could’ve guessed? Good job W!” praised t-rex.

Also full of enthusiasm was RanThe: “Great job W! Get her early because she’s going to be everywhere this fall!”

MON couldn’t contain his excitement, either. “I can’t believe I’m about to say this.. but, I finally love a W cover (with the exception of the hair – it could’ve been better). I adore the feminine touch to it especially the printed logo. I also love the vulnerability of the cover and the makeup is on point!”

The rest of us just haven’t the foggiest. “Not familiar with her or her work, but what a plain cover. It’s nice they are supporting fresh talent though!” shared Miss Dalloway.

“I hope she’s more charismatic than that on screen, zZzzZ!” hissed HeatherAnne.

Check out Alicia’s cover story for the issue and share your own opinion with us here.

The Americans have come out on top this year for the International Woolmark Prize. Public School’s Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow picked up the award for menswear in January and now, M.Patmos‘ Marcia Patmos just beat out four other labels to take home the Women’s International Woolmark Prize. She triumphed over worthy contenders — Germany’s Augustin Teboul, Lebanon’s Bird on a Wire, Australia’s Strateas.Carlucci and China’s VMajor. 

Judged by a panel that included Franca Sozzani, Victoria Beckham, Vogue China editrix Angelica Cheung and more, Patmos will receive $76,366 and a chance to sell her wares in stores like Harvey Nichols, Saks Fifth Avenue, and 10 Corso Como, along with other high-end destinations. 

“Thank you to The Woolmark Company for creating this great platform to support emerging designers,” she said. “I am looking forward to seeing what happens as a result of this new opportunity.”

Congrats to Patmos who repped hard for the Americans this year!

Alexander McQueen Celebrates Savage Beauty with Limited-Edition Scarves

The star-studded opening gala for the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition at London’s V&A museum last week may have been strictly invite-only for A-list attendees that included Kate Moss and Victoria Beckham, but the brand has just announced a way we can all celebrate the occasion.

Available online or at the brand’s London-based Bond Street flagship store is an exclusive capsule collection of five limited-edition silk scarves, all of which feature an iconic piece from McQueen’s most memorable collections. Styles include the Widows of Culloden, The Girl Who Lived in the Tree and the It’s Only A Game collections, as well as his Spring 2010 armadillo shoes and Spring 1999 spray-painted dress.

All of the scarves retail for £345 each, which is a small price to pay considering that you’ll be investing in a little piece of fashion history. Only 100 pieces of each style were created, which means that they’ll undoubtedly sell out very soon.

Kendall and Kylie Jenner Are Working on a Mobile App

The Kardashian-Jenners can’t stop, won’t stop making money and thrusting themselves ever further into a public eye that seems to never tire of seeing them. The youngest members of the reality clan are taking a page out of their older sister Kim’s book by creating a mobile game.

The pair announced their latest venture via Twitter this morning, but offered no other details about the game. Kim Kardashian: Hollywood (which is really fun, y’all) has a lot of characters reminiscent of IRL celebrities (like photographer “Marcel Tesiano” and an Anna Wintour-like figure named Elizabeth Korkov), so we wonder if this particular game will also mirror the Jenners’ lives. After all, their day-to-day exploits are what make them money and keep them famous. Should we expect to make friends with a buzzy model named Lara Shay-Levine or have the option of carrying on a questionable relationship with a rapper in his mid-20s name Liger in the game? Art Imitates life, as they say.

The CFDA has announced the nominees for its 2015 Fashion Awards. Many old CFDA favorites got the nod this year for top honors, including Public School, The Row and Joseph Altuzarra. Last night, CFDA President Diane von Furstenberg rounded up elite members of the fashion set to announce this year’s troop up for awards in their respective categories. Public School managed to get two nominations — this time both in menswear and womenswear. Last year, the label snagged the Menswear Designer of the Year Award, so we guess the powers-that-be over at the CFDA are really loving what the brand is doing for American fashion.

For Womenswear Designer of the Year, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Joseph Altuzarra, the Olsen twins and Proenza Schouler‘s Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough will duke it out all for a chance to take home a statue. Accessory Designer of the Year could go to the Proenza Schouler boys, Tabitha Simmons, the Olsen twins, Irene Neuwirth or Alexander Wang. For menswear, Public School’s Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow go up against Tom Ford, Rag & Bone’s Marcus Wainwright and David Neville, Thom Browne and Tim Coppens.

Swarovski Award nominees for womenswear include Rosie Assoulin, Ryan Roche and CFDA favorite Public School. Shayne Oliver’s Hood by Air, Ovadia & Sons’ Ariel and Shimon Ovadia and Matthew, Alex and Samantha Orley of Orley are up for the menswear Swarovski prize. In Swarovski’s accessory category, Eva Fehren’s Eva Zuckerman, Paul Andrew along with Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel of Mansur Gavriel will all compete for the statue.

Other honorees include Betsey Johnson, who will receive the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award, J.Crew’s Mickey Drexler for the Founders Award, given in honor of CFDA founder Eleanor Lambert, and Valentino’s Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli will snag the International Award.

The CFDA will announce the winners at a ceremony at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall on June 1.
