Kerry Washington Lands the Cover of Marie Claire’s April Issue (Forum Buzz)

With such an incredibly beautiful cover subject, why is it that magazines can’t seem to get it right with Kerry Washington? InStyle was accused of lightening her skin tone on its March cover, Allure‘s idea of not piling the actress with a face full of makeup fell completely flat and now, Marie Claire comes under scrutiny by our forum members for its April 2015 cover. The Scandal star poses for Tesh for a simple portrait — so what’s the problem here? Leave it to our forum members to point out the cover’s failure to do Kerry justice.

“You can barely see her through the text! So ridiculous,” commented Moofins within seconds of the cover surfacing on our forums. This doesn’t sound too good.

“My god! Can’t they make at least ONE good cover with this woman?!! I hope she gets W and they do her beauty justice, what is this? The cropping is a disaster, the text layout is eating her, and her face expression is so uncertain,” Miss Dalloway soon noted.

Sharing the same sentiments was lelaid: “Seriously. She’s an incredibly beautiful woman yet they never pick a good shot of her for the cover!”

As the cover informs us, Lena Dunham interviewed Kerry for the issue. “I really hate it when celebs interview other celebs. It feels so contrived and like a public relations stunt. It’s Kerry’s time, go away Lena,” said MON.

GivenchyHomme changed the tone of the thread. “She actually looks like herself! No skin lightening or excessive retouching. That’s commendable.”

“Oh they wouldn’t dare to mess around with her tone after the InStyle outrage. This could almost be an ‘au naturel’ cover. She’s really a beautiful woman, I just don’t understand why it never gets captured on covers. There’s something ‘off’ here, I just cannot pinpoint it right away,” Benn98 fired back.

Reed Krakoff (the Brand) Is Taking a Break

Ladies and gents, clutch your Reed Krakoff bags tight because it may be a while before we see anything new from the label. The designer has announced that he will be suspending production, so that the company can do a little recalibrating.

Not only will Reed Krakoff stop design and production, but it will also shut down its Madison Avenue location. “The company will suspend all future design and production, while continuing to operate its Greene Street and Woodbury Commons stores, as well as the e-commerce site. In addition, the company is reviewing all strategic options for the brand, which may include production and distribution partnerships or a sale of the business and the brand,” the label said in a statement.

Krakoff won’t be shuttering his brand entirely, but sources say the label is looking for help from investors. New products are said to be on deck, but it looks like we won’t be seeing much of that until Reed Krakoff stabilizes.

Patricia Arquette Gets That Wage Equality Speech Right This Time

Oscar-winner Patricia Arquette made quite a rousing speech as she accepted her award for Best Supporting Actress, calling for equal pay for women. Her words gave Meryl Streep a case of the “yaas,” but her comments afterward had people up in arms. In a backstage interview, Patricia elaborated on her speech. “People think we have equal rights; we don’t,” she said. “Until we pass a constitutional amendment, we won’t have anything changed. It’s time for all women in America and all the men who love women and all the gay people and people of color that we’ve all fought for to fight for us now.”

Those comments gave many people pause — surely, Ms. Arquette must know that women of color have to fight for wage equality, especially since they are paid even less than white women. And, uh, we’re pretty sure there are gay women (and men!) affected by wage inequality, too, so we’re not sure what she was trying to get at with that particular statement.

But on Tuesday at UN Women’s Planet 50-50 by 2030, the actress took the stage to clarify some of her words, and offer a more comprehensive version of what she was trying to say. (more…)

Kathy Griffin Is the Latest to Exit E!’s ‘Fashion Police’

Things are not going well for the crew over at E!’s Fashion Police since Giuliana Rancic’s tasteless joke concerning Zendaya’s locked hair on the Oscar red carpet. There was outrage, apologies, threats from co-host Kelly Osbourne to quit —  which she eventually did — and now, another member of Fashion Police is throwing in the towel.

Kathy Griffin, who just recently signed on to fill Joan Rivers’ slot on the show, announced last night via Twitter that she was leaving the E! series after just seven episodes. “When I chose to step into the shoes of my beloved friend Joan Rivers at Fashion Police, I was thrilled to continue her legacy as a woman being brash and eccentric on television,” she wrote. “I thought that I could bring my brand of humor to Fashion Police so that beautiful people in beautiful dresses could be teased when appropriate. My brand of humor, while unrepentant and unafraid, is all about CONTEXT… I do not want to use my comedy to contribute to a culture of unattainable perfectionism and intolerance towards difference.” 

Kathy says that while she hopes the best for E!, Fashion Police simply isn’t in line with her personal or professional values. “After 7 episodes of Fashion Police, I discovered that my style does not fit with the creative direction of the show & now it’s time to move on.” 

Kathy recently spoke out about “smells like weed-gate,” saying that though Giuliana made the unfortunate comment on air, the joke was written for her. Now that Kathy, E!’s big ticket in the wake of Joan’s passing, and Kelly have walked away from the show, we wonder how much longer the network will keep it up. Fashion Police‘s overall tone has been questioned in the days following the Zendaya debacle, and now that an actual (now former) cast member is calling them out, is it time for the show to fold completely? Or perhaps it’s time to hire hosts who have a bit more knowledge of style, rather than just a quick wit and an opinion.

An endorsement by Kate Middleton is priceless. Well, almost. New Zealand beauty brand Trilogy is reaping huge financial benefits since Kate counted one of its products as an essential in a major magazine, seeing sales and shares rise for the company as a result.

It all started when US Weekly claimed that Kate, who is around seven months along in her pregnancy, applies Trilogy’s Rosehip Oil to fight wrinkles naturally and keep her beauty look flawless.

To keep things believable, a source close to Kate told the publication that, “Kate continues to use rosehip oil in her daily skincare regiment.”  “She loves the effect is has on her skin,” the source added, noting that Kate’s mother, Carole Middleton, is also a big fan. (more…)
