Good news for Alexander Wang fans: the brand is expanding to include jewelry for Pre-Fall. We spent the last few years obsessing over Wang’s accessories so jewelry is a natural progression for the brand. And it’s been a long time coming. “I always wanted to do jewelry, but I never felt like I had the opportunity,” the designer told WWD. “I’ve had my hands quite full. But I really got exposed to it when I went to Balenciaga and I really enjoyed the process.”

As you may have guessed, Alexander Wang’s first jewelry offering is far from dainty. Think bike chain earrings, lock cuffs and a padlock necklace, all inspired by hardware. Ranging from $295 to $525, the brand’s first-ever jewelry collection will launch on and in Alexander Wang stores later this month. It hits retailers like Net-a-Porter and Joyce HK this coming Spring. Place your bet on which Alexander Wang girl will wear it on the red carpet first. (Our money’s on Rihanna).

Watch: Beyoncé Nails ‘Home’ From ‘The Wiz’ at Just 7 Years Old

Along with the rest of the world, we can’t get enough of vintage Beyoncé home videos. There’s baby Bey practicing a routine at the start of the Grown Woman video, playing with bees in the Life Is But a Dream documentary, performing on Star Search with her Girls Tyme group, and so many more. The latest video to resurface may be our favorite. At just 7 years old, the pop supernova played the role of Dorothy in The Wiz, belting out Home with her signature theatrical flair.

Of course, newcomer Shanice Williams’s rendition of Home is pretty ***flawless too. Williams joined a star-studded cast, including Queen Latifah, Amber Riley and Mary J. Blige, for The Wiz! Live, NBC’s adaptation of the classic 70s musical. Even Uzo Aduba, who played Glinda the Good Witch, gave a show-stopping performance of Believe in Yourself. Who knew the Orange is the New Black star had such powerhouse vocals?

We can’t wait to buy The Wiz! Live soundtrack on December 11, but in the meantime, we’ll be playing Baby Beyonce on repeat.

Miranda Kerr Goes Nude for Harper’s Bazaar Australia (Forum Buzz)

A new trend is starting to emerge this month, as multiple magazines serve up their cover subjects completely naked. It started with racy French publication Lui delivering 12 top models posing unclothed for a series of images that translated into 12 separate covers and now Harper’s Bazaar Australia jumps on the bandwagon. Getting 2016 off to a positive and healthy start, Bazaar tapped local Aussie stunner Miranda Kerr to front the January/February edition. Shot by Steven Chee, Miranda poses nude on the balcony of a swanky hotel in West Hollywood, leaving our forum members picking their jaws up off the floor.

But in the worst way possible. “I hate when fashion magazines do nude covers. You know you’re a FASHION magazine right?” asked A.D.C. the moment the cover struck, completely unfazed.

“Nope. I feel uncomfortable,” awkwardly added Oxymore. (more…)

Another celebrity is getting added to the New York Fashion Week lineup. Rihanna will follow in Kanye West’s footsteps with her first-ever New York Fashion Week show, presenting her premiere ready-to-wear collection with Puma. But something tells us this show will be well-received. For one, Rih is warning us of the date and time well in advance (unlike Kanye): February 12 at 8 p.m. And Rihanna is using the hype to give back to charity.

The CFDA Award winner tweeted a link to an auction page for her Diamond Ball charitable auction listing two tickets to the “Puma by Rihanna AW16 fashion show” for a mere $15,000. To be fair, you and your plus one will also get flown business class to New York for two nights, land front row seating, enjoy backstage access and an exclusive invite to the after party where you’ll hang out with Rihanna.

Did we mention the winner also gets the entire RTW collection and every color of her sold-out Creepers — with her signature on them? It’s worth the $15K for the signed shoes alone. All proceeds benefit Rih’s Clara Lionel Foundation, the humanitarian organization named after her late grandmother. Join us in placing your bid here.

It was a dream come true when Bridget Malcolm walked the Victoria’s Secret runway last month, but the Australian model has admitted that the lead-up to the world-renowned show was “boring” and that the post-show body shaming she’s receiving “sucks”.

Speaking to 104.1’s Rove and Sam, the blonde beauty said, “You’re walking in your underwear in front of millions of people, so for me that meant twice daily workouts, lots of sleep and water. It’s very boring,” noting that she had a lot of protein shakes, vegetables and “early nights” during the prep stage.

Bridget’s hard, and somewhat mundane, work to get her bod in shape for the show made it harder for her to digest the body shaming she received online. “Anyone who knows me knows how much time and effort I put in to it,” she told Rove and Sam. (more…)
