Over the past couple of months, Vogue Russia has continued to impress our forum members. We were delighted with the September cover featuring Natasha Poly, which takes us back to the 90s, and the magazine has thrilled us again for October. BFFs Nastya Sten and Sasha Luss pose together wearing Fendi for an effortlessly beautiful cover image by photographer Txema Yeste.

Make no mistake, our forum members were impressed. “This is beautiful! Of course I love the Fendi Haute Fourrure outfits. Is October the new September?” asked a more than content gazebo.

“This is EVERYTHING! Love these girlfriends. I love the simplicity and graphic vibe of the cover,” admired lakomka.

Also full of admiration and gratitude was Benn98: “Finally something fresh from Vogue Russia. So glad for Nastya, but they both look stunning here. Txema Yeste did a good job!”

Khyrk was quick to voice his praise too, echoing, “LOVE IT! Love how Vogue Russia has maintained their high from their September cover. Love this!”

“Dear LORD, I’m speechless. Love that cover!!” declared a satisfied catherine88.

Sharing the same positive attitude was MON. “Oh my goodness! Even Vogue Russia delivered!! Yes! This is the Vogue Russia that I love! Is it me or does this have the old VR vibe (from the layout to the image). Yes! I hope they stick with this direction! October is the gift that keeps on giving!” he praised.

You have to admit it’d be pretty cool to share a Vogue cover with your BFF! Drop us a comment here.

Peep the Trailer for David Beckham and Kevin Hart’s H&M Commercial

It’s finally here! When we found out that David Beckham and Kevin Hart would be filming a commercial for H&M together (dressed exactly alike, no less), we couldn’t wait to see the hilarity unfold. Now, H&M has released a trailer for the fall campaign starring the pair and, yep, it’s pretty darn funny.

The premise of the short is that Kevin Hart wants to play Beckham in I, Beckham: The Movie and to do some character research, Hart follows the ex-soccer player around, wears his clothes, uses his toothbrush, takes videos of him while he’s sleeping…all the hilariously creepy stuff we would probably do if we got a chance to hang out with Becks for a day.

The short shows off H&M’s “modern essentials” that Beckham chose, consisting of all the classic fall pieces a guy needs – the perfect plaid shirt, a blue bomber jacket, a cozy-looking striped sweater and more.

The full video is expected to drop September 28, but this 30-second spot should hold you over until then.

ELLE Australia Replaces a Cover Star with a Mirror

What’s on the cover of ELLE Australia’s latest issue? The fuzzy reflection of Australian women. This month, the ladymag opted for a mirrored (or mirror finish) cover that readers are meant to hold up to their faces to feel like a model for a moment. 

Yep – ELLE Australia is calling on the ladies down under to #BeTheCover and, as the cover reads, “Celebrate the portrait of what it means to be a woman.” Women all over social media have been showing off their versions of the ELLE cover, which are all pretty blurry, but at least it’s heartening to know that without an actual cover star, women of all shapes and sizes will be able to see themselves represented on a major magazine – even if it is just for a moment.

WATCH: David Beckham’s Belstaff ‘Outlaws’ Film Is Finally Here

Belstaff’s short film with David Beckham is finally here and in the 14-minute piece, we get to see Beckham flex his acting muscles. Too bad his character isn’t much of a talker. The short film tells the story of a very handsome lone motorcyclist who is on the run from another motorcycle gang looking to kill him. A flashback reveals the hunky rider became a stuntman in an old-timey circus when he saved a stuntwoman (Katherine Waterston) after her startled horse ran away with her on its back.

[ Celebrate David Beckham with These Shirtless Pics ]

Beckham’s character and the woman fall in love, which makes the circus director (Harvey Keitel) jealous. He tries to have Beckham killed by making him perform what seems to be an impossible stunt, but nobody wants to see a handsome man’s demise, so obviously Beckham nails the stunt and drives off with the girl…who later drives off with his motorcycle. Ain’t that a B. We find out the director is the one who sent out his henchmen in search of the mute Beckham.

The Geremy Jasper-directed film is beautifully shot and narrated in Spanish (with subtitles) and in addition to Waterston and Keitel, also stars Cathy Moriarty. Liv Tyler, who was just announced as the face of Belstaff women, served as executive producer of the project.

Ruby Rose Slams Magazine for ‘Unapproved’ and ‘Exploitative’ Use of Nipple-Bearing Photo


I am pro “free the nipple” so when I was tagged in this photo by fans I wasn’t sure where it came from but I assumed a BTS from a friends shoot or one where we had approved slightly transparency in an image. Imagine my shock to find that @theuntitledmagazine decided to publish images of me after we explained we wouldn’t be doing the shoot if I wasn’t appropriately covered. The difference with working with a friend and or choosing to use nudity for art / and someone taking the piss and exploiting you is two different things. Not only is this 8 months old.. The photos unapproved but they also sold photos to other publications. The interview made no sense 8 months on.. Please if you are a fan of mine boycott this issue. Or you are buying into greedy, exploitative propaganda. I have plenty of other shoots I’m proud of with professionals coming up its not needed in your collection.

Publications will know better than to mess with Ruby Rose after she has publicly slammed a magazine for publishing a revealing photo of her, without permission.

Taking to Instagram today, the Orange is the New Black star called out The Untitled Magazine for publishing a photo which reveals her left nipple.

Although Ruby admits she is supportive of #FreeTheNipple in the social media post, she also revealed that she was shocked to see this image of herself, even after she says she had made clear that she wouldn’t be taking part in the shoot unless she was “appropriately covered”. (more…)
