As a tribute to the late Marilyn Monroe, makeup brand Max Factor has named the film icon its global glamour ambassador. The brand’s Global Creative Design Director Pat McGrath told WWD, “Marilyn made the sultry red lip, creamy skin and dramatically lined eyes the most famous beauty look of the 1940s…It is the ultimate look that defines glamour — nothing else compares.” The brand attributes makeup artist Max Factor Jr. with the starlet’s transformation from girl-next-door Norma Jeane Mortenson to the blond bombshell look that made her famous.

Rather than launching a new line of products, this partnership will promote the brand and bring attention to products in the current line that embody Marilyn’s beauty look from the 40s and 50s. As of tomorrow, Max Factor will launch global television, print and online ads as well as social media efforts, all of which will feature images of the icon. The ads will align with the brand’s social media campaign, #GlamJan, which is aimed at inspiring women to “undergo a personal glamour transformation” in January.

Kim Kardashian’s Bleached Brows Appear in Next Issue of Love Magazine

Love has been hit by cupid’s arrow – and the object of its affection seems to be the Kardashian-Jenners. The magazine has released another image from its spring issue, which features a vintage and custom Prada-clad Kim Kardashian rocking a pair of bleached brows.

Kim showed off the look back in November on Instagram, noting that her frosty brows were for a shoot and not a permanent change. The reality star revealed on social media that the Steven Klein-lensed shoot took three days to complete on location at an L.A. Motel. Oh, and it sounds like there are a lot of images from the shoot, since Kim let it slip that the spread has over 30 pages.

Love has been working quite a lot with the reality TV family. Both Kendall Jenner and mother Kris were featured more than once in its video advent calendar, and Kendall can be seen in another image for the publication‘s forthcoming issue, posing with Cara Delevingne.

Vogue Turkey Misses the Mark with Freja Beha Erichsen Cover (Forum Buzz)

Forum members have been complaining about Vogue Turkey for the past few months, questioning the decline in creativity, and now we finally know the reason why. According to Housseyin in our forums, the magazine is under a brand new creative team. Vogue Turkey kicks off 2015 with a cover shot by Cass Bird featuring Freja Beha Erichsen perched on a tree looking rather…homeless.

The majority of us aren’t fans of the magazine’s efforts this month. “It’s BAD. Looks like Italian Marie Claire with all these texts and awful choice of colors. And the most important thing — the styling is hideous,” slammed Srdjan.

“It’s like an awful cover of French ELLE. I love Freja but this is [a] disaster. Hate her hair too,” added fluxxx, also not showing much appreciation for the cover.

Nymphaea wasn’t a fan, either and also commented on Freja’s hair: “Her hair is a disaster and the cover is not cover worthy.” Ouch!

“A homeless looking person on the cover of Vogue! Freja will never give me any emotion whatsoever. She looks like she died 5 days ago. So cold and lifeless,” alonsoJonathan disapproved inside the thread.

We can’t remember when a cover of Vogue looked this bad. “What an awful cover. Freja looks terrible especially this hair. Yellow font doesn’t help too. It’s just bad. Really bad,” noted narcyza.

Omnis agreed and echoed, “Awful styling, awful hair, awful colors.”

We have some dreadful reviews for Turkish Vogue‘s cover this month, but do you agree? Check out Freja’s editorial and share your opinion with us here.

Can You Spot the Photoshop Mishap in Moschino’s Spring 2015 Campaign? (Forum Buzz)

A select few of us have been anticipating the Moschino Spring 2015 campaign, wondering what gimmicky imagery we would be served for Jeremy Scott’s fun collection showcased during Milan Fashion Week. The campaign dropped in our forums earlier today and, to our surprise, it is rather ordinary. Photographed by Steven Meisel in black and white, blond beauties Anna Ewers, Sasha Luss and Hollie-May Saker play catch with some quilted bags. To accompany the movement shot, a portrait of Anna is layered over the top, creating a double-page spread.

But our forum members have noticed something slightly off with the first campaign image. “I like it, it’s cute. But where is Sasha’s second leg?” asked Psylocke.

“Ouch at Sasha’s missing leg! How did they miss that during composition? Otherwise, I like it… looks like fun. The B&W tones down the sweet vibe of the collection, I prefer it this way,” noted kokobombon, who overlooked the mishap.

Also noticing the blunder was TashaRosa: “Sasha’s leg is missing here! C’mon guys, just try a little bit and see!”

“I wish it was Doutzen Kroes & Adriana Lima in this Moschino campaign. That would have been epic! The perfect blonde and the perfect brunette. The campaign is not bad at all but the models look too young (12-16 years) + this campaign needs to be in color!!” added DutchHomme, disappointed the campaign was captured in black and white.

“I like it, very 90s but I think it was a mistake to have shot this great collection in B&W,” wrote testinofan.

“Why are all of the campaigns colorless this season? They’re ads for spring! Everything is just so dour and dull. Aside from that, I think it’s a solid cast for the collection (plus or minus Sasha’s leg),” posted an underwhelmed Moofins.

Do you agree that Moschino’s campaign should have been shot in color to showcase Scott’s vibrant collection in all its glory? Let us know here.

Major Changes Coming to New York Fashion Week

Prepare to kiss New York Fashion Week as you know it goodbye because there are about to be major changes. We already know that the event will be moving out of Lincoln Center after the February 2015 shows, where it has been held since 2010. But the move to a new location isn’t the only thing that’s going to be different about Fashion Week come September.

Mercedes-Benz has announced that it will no longer fund the event, which currently bears the car company’s name; it will just be called New York Fashion Week. Mercedes-Benz says it will still continue to support fashionable endeavors, however, noting that it sponsors Fashion Weeks overseas.

In addition, WWD says that IMG is wrapping up acquisition talks with the folks behind competitor Made Fashion Week, which should take effect for the Spring 2016 collections. We’re unsure as to where New York Fashion Week will be held next season, as IMG is negotiating locations, but there are rumors that it could be held in a number of downtown spots. Eventually, the event is expected to move to the Culture Shed, a new location being built at Hudson Yards scheduled for completion in 2017.

Whether you’re under a lover’s sky or not, your childhood dream of one day ending up with Coyote Ugly‘s Mr “Have A Nice Day” O’ Donnell is now officially shattered. Yes, it’s been 15 years since we fell in love with Aussie hunk Adam Garcia in that post-90s chick flick, but it still hurts our hearts to say that the pure-bred, house-broken, fully-trained young stud is officially off the market. Hell no, H2O.

As reported by New Idea, the heart-throb cum Dancing with the Stars judge put a ring on his starry-eyed girlfriend Nathalia Chubin over the Christmas break, after the British beauty landed in Australia to spend some time with her main man and his family.

After waiting two long days because 30-year-old Nathalia fell ill, Adam casually suggested his girlfriend go for a stroll with him where he popped the big question in a national park overlooking Sydney Harbour.  (more…)
