Watch: Victoria’s Secret Swim 2015 Trailer

While we’re still digesting all the food we ate over the holidays, Victoria’s Secret releases a video for its Swim 2015 collection. Women with incredible bodies rocking bikinis are usually the last thing we want to see after having spent our entire vacation eating, but this video is so darn sexy, we’re willing to forgive Victoria’s Secret for the questionable timing.

Lily Aldridge, Candice Swanepoel, Lais Ribeiro and more writhe and cast sexy glances on a Hawaiian beach, flicking their wet hair and making us regret finishing all that New Year’s Eve champagne by ourselves. Only a little.

Watch the ladies in action above.

FKA twigs, Sam Smith and Others Star on V Magazine’s Spring Preview Issue (Forum Buzz)

V Magazine tapped a handful of the music industry’s hottest individuals for its Spring Preview issue. FKA twigs (whose cover is pictured below), Sam Smith, Tinashe and Jessie Ware were each shot separately by Dutch photographic duo Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin for a set of classic, studio-captured portrait images that do each of the artists justice. Styled by Mel Ottenberg and Karen Clarkson, we cannot get enough of each of the four covers. Kudos to V Magazine!

But our forum members are asking whether or not FKA twigs deserves a cover! “Not a fan of Twigs. I find her to be extremely overrated, and people are only using her because of Robert Pattinson. I mean she’s a pretty girl, but a fairly average model IMO,” posted LoveKatFashion.

“No such thing, FKA twigs has been a fashion favorite before she started dating Robert Pattinson, you need to have a look at her archive. i-D, etc.,” responded TeeVanity.

Also coming to her defense was phatcatcan: “Please do explain how she’s overrated? I’m sure you didn’t know about her until she started dating R-Patz. I say you Google her pre-Pattinson and then give your two cents. Oh and IMO, she might not be a model, but she sure is one of the most original, talented, creative artists, vocalists, performers there is in the industry right now.”

“The average person didn’t know who she was before Pattinson, come on! How can you deny it? Even she’s asked about him in almost all new interviews. That being said, there’s no denying that she’s talented and she had a career before Rob,” added kokobombon, firing back.

Yet FKA twigs’ cover isn’t all we’ve been discussing. “Wow! Sam Smith looks like a young George Michael!” raved Lola701.

“He reminds me of a young Boy George, too, I always say that. I like his cover the most of the three,” noted TeeVanity.

Well, it’s official. Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden took the plunge last night in an intimate ceremony at their home in Beverly Hills, after a whirlwind seven-month courtship. 

According to People, the 42-year-old actress had her bachelorette party and rehearsal dinner the same weekend with family and friends, including Nicole Richie and Drew Barrymore. The rehearsal dinner was orchestrated by renowned wedding planners Yifat Oren and Stefanie Cove, whose client list boasts Barrymore, Anne Hathaway and Reese Witherspoon. It was reportedly at the couple’s L.A. home on Sunday and was catered by Mediterranean restaurant Lucques, a foodie favorite in L.A. Witnesses also spotted an intimate, candle-lit affair at Il Cielo on Saturday night.

As for the wedding, here’s what we know. Oren and Cove arrived at the couple’s gated neighborhood on Monday morning, along with trucks carrying an assortment of white flowers from The Velvet Garden, the same florist Barrymore enlisted for her wedding to Will Kopelman in 2012. A large tent for the ceremony and reception was set up on the property and decorated with white flowers, olive trees and beeswax candles. Over 90 guests arrived for the “I dos,” which were performed on Monday evening in a Jewish ceremony and followed by a reception with live performances by Ryan Adams and Lionel Richie. The wedding party included Barrymore and Richie as bridesmaids along with Chimene, Diaz’s sister, and the actress’ assistant, Jesse Lutz. All four women wore black and carried a white bouquet. So far, the bride’s gown remains under wraps, although Us Weekly is reporting that the ceremony dress featured “a low back and lots of sparkle” while a second white gown, slipped on before the cake-cutting ritual, had short sleeves and a beaded bodice.

Following the ceremony, the couple told People: “We couldn’t be happier to begin our new journey together surrounded by our closest family and friends.”

C. Wonder Goes Kaput

It’s a wrap for C. Wonder. The troubled retailer, conceived by Chris Burch, has been struggling since reports surfaced in November that it would be closing up to 20 of its 32 locations, but it looks like cutting corners couldn’t help the flailing company. 

According to BuzzFeed, the company called a meeting yesterday informing employees that it would be shuttering the brand entirely and closing all remaining stores in the forthcoming weeks. Burch’s C. Wonder endeavor was seen by some as an attempt to get revenge on his ex-wife Tory Burch, since the store’s offerings looked so similar to the designer’s famed aesthetic. 

If you’re looking to pick up some deeply discounted C. Wonder wares while you can, now is the time. The brand’s website is taking 50 percent off your entire purchase.

Coach Is About to Buy Stuart Weitzman

Coach is on the cusp of finalizing its first acquisition, American footwear brand Stuart Weitzman. According to WWD, the purchase price is somewhere in the neighborhood of $580 million.

Coach is looking to buy the brand from private equity firm Sycamore Partners, which has investments in a number of fashion and accessories brands, including Kurt Geiger, Jones New York, Nine West and Hot Topic. Coach is going through a rebranding of sorts as Creative Director Stuart Vevers tries to expand the label’s offerings into apparel and pricier options. At the very least, this acquisition can give Coach a stronger presence in the footwear arena.

We don’t know yet if Stuart Weitzman himself will stay at the label after the purchase, which will be officially announced this week.

Nicole Kidman in Hot Water Over Leaky Pipes

Nicole Kidman might be an award-winning actress, but her neighbouring skills may not be as commendable. Page Six reports that the celebrity is being sued for allegedly causing over $46,000 USD in damages to the apartment below her $13 million USD Chelsea duplex, after pipes burst on her terrace and flooded fellow tenant Leonard Steinberg’s home-sweet-home.

The suit says that although Nicole had copper piping installed on her balconies at 200 11th Ave., the contractor mustn’t have insulated the work, and Nicole didn’t drain the water before winter. This apparently caused the pipes to freeze and explode, and that’s what allegedly caused the flooding in Steinberg’s building.

Steinberg is a real estate broker, and is using his insurance broker, Nationwide, to sue on his behalf. We hope he and Nicole can laugh about this over a friendly cuppa when the time’s right.
