10 Reasons Why SkyMall Needs to Survive Bankruptcy

crazy gas mask from the sky mallTimes are looking uncertain for people who live for bizarre kitty litter boxes or questionably kitschy lawn ornaments. Xhibit Corp., the company that owns SkyMall magazine, is filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and is looking to sell the in-flight catalog in the process. Turns out, technology is to blame for SkyMall‘s decline since more people are too busy fiddling with their tablets and phones to peruse through the expertly curated selection of stuff SkyMall offers. CFO and Acting CEO of Xhibit Scott Wiley expressed the company’s deep sadness that this gem of a catalog will now be blowing in the wind as the company tries to find a buyer. “We are extremely disappointed in this result and are hopeful that SkyMall and the iconic ‘SkyMall’ brand find a home to continue to operate as SkyMall has for the last 25 years,” he said.

They won’t be the only ones disappointed if SkyMall fails to get picked up. The catalog contains pages and pages of absurd and sometimes hilariously useful products that you didn’t know you needed, but when you see them, are all too tempted to buy. SkyMall isn’t kaput just yet, but the possibility of it disappearing is enough to make a jet-setter with a penchant for ironic wares want to shed a tear. SkyMall, we’d hate to see you go. Here are 10 reasons why. (more…)

Numéro Delivers a ‘Very Saint Laurent’ Cover for February (Forum Buzz)

Numéro‘s double holiday issue is soon to disappear from newsstands as the magazine gears up for the release of its newest installment. Daria Strokous stars on the magazine’s eye-catching February 2015 cover shot by Daniel Sannwald. Following a similar direction from the last cover with Toni Garrn, Daria stands before a white background wearing an outfit from Hedi Slimane’s Spring 2015 collection for Saint Laurent, creating another minimalist cover for the French edition of Numéro. We’re pretty sure this cover will stand out on the newsstands.

Our forum members couldn’t wait to express their excitement once the cover surfaced. “Stunning cover, reminds [me of] the other cover of Vogue Russia in May 2013, with Natasha Poly,” burbuja8910 reminisced, getting us off to a positive start.

“Great cover. Love the styling and the androgyny given by her small chest. Looks like a 70s English glam rocker!” enthused kokobombon.

“Loving it! Love the white hair. I totally see Yves Saint Laurent’s spirit in this but modernized,” echoed gazebo.

Forum member fluorescentbeat was also full of excitement: “Very Saint Laurent cover, Daria looks so good!”

Numéro has without a doubt hit the nail on the head this time. “Yes Daria Yes, love this cover!” TeeVanity shared. 

“Daria looks stunning! Very impactful shot!” assessed Nepenthes.

This isn’t your average garage sale. You will not find weird old pictures of somebody’s family from the 60s or worn-in Tupperware from the early 90s. Also, it’s not taking place in an actual garage. Garage magazine is having an online auction with items curated from the homes of 13 key members of the creative set. Jeff Koons, James Franco, Richard Phillips, Miuccia Prada and several others have all donated their old (enviable) junk to the cause with proceeds benefiting CalArts and the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art Education.

And these artsy throwaways are anything but. Among the lots is a self-portrait of Absolutely Fabulous‘ Joanna Lumley as her character Patsy Stone, an embellished, fringed leather skirt from Miuccia Prada and a Prada shirt right off Carsten Höller’s back. 

You can bid on the items from January 25 to February 4 online at the dedicated eBay shop.

Lindsey Wixson’s Hair Completely Ruins Fendi’s Spring 2015 Ad Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Karl Lagerfeld often gets flack from our feisty forum members for his photographic abilities. But it’s not Lagerfeld who’s getting the blame for Fendi’s unattractive Spring 2015 advertising campaign. The kaiser tapped Lindsey Wixson as the solo star of the fashion spots, having previously fronted Chanel’s Spring 2014 campaign alongside Sasha Luss. This time around, the designer captured Lindsey inside a high-rise building full of natural light as she poses in Fendi’s latest wares. But it was the hair, styled by Sam McKnight, that’s bothering the majority of our forum members.

Naturally, our forum members weren’t afraid to let loose. “Makeup, hair, pose, location is all wrong. It has ruined an amazing collection. Let’s hope the other shots make up for it a bit,” ranted gossiping.  

“As much [as] I love Lindsey, this is really bad. The hair ruins everything,” thatsfierce added.

Forum member fiqary showed no enthusiasm toward the hair, either: “The hair is horrible. The hair alone makes everything look cheap and tacky.”

FelipeV even went so far as to say, “The hair makes her look like a 70s porn actress.” Ouch! 

“Okay I think I’ll say the same thing as everyone, this hairstyle is not cool, and it doesn’t suit her. Lindsey has very recognizable and striking features, and they are not well used here. Even the makeup is wrong. On the first picture I really like the colors, light blue, baby pink and white. But well that’s the only thing I like,” credited Emmanuelle.

For the campaign, TAG Heuer went with photos of the model you may have already seen: The first is her at The Great Gatsby premiere during Cannes in 2013, the other is an image of Cara making one of her signature goofy faces, showing off the lion tattoo on her index finger, while urging the TAG Heuer customer #DontCrackUnderPressure. TAG Heuer is hoping Cara’s social media reach and popularity with the kids opens the brand up to a younger generation of shoppers. And it looks like the model is already hard at work promoting her new gig on Instagram.  (more…)

She loved gallivanting around in The Hills of LA and The City of New York, but it looks like Whitney Port could be relocating to Australia for good.

In an interview with OK! magazine, her fiancé, producer Tim Rosenman, revealed that the move down under is more than likely going to happen. “We’ll probably move to Australia,” he explained to OK! “Last time we left, we spoke about it because we loved it so much.”

It’s definitely a possibility. Whitney is signed to Aussie management team Chadwick models, she became engaged to Tim in Sydney, and because, well, who says no to Australia?

We’ll gladly make room for Whitney and Tim, and all their little Port-Rosenman offspring on our turf. Maybe a new MTV reality show could be on the cards. The Sand? The Outback? The Spit?! Doesn’t really have the same ring to it, does it?

To read the entire story, pick up OK! this week.
