With Paris Fashion Week all wrapped up, the runways in other parts of the world are just starting to kick off. So swap your six-inch heels for fancy flats and grab a Trenta from Starbucks stat — the runway fun continues in Canada.

Vancouver Fashion Week, which runs from March 16 to March 22, sees more than 25,000 show-goers packing the Queen Elizabeth Plaza each season. And while the shows take place in Western Canada, the 50 featured designers are as global as they come, hailing from the U.K., Europe, South America, Asia and more.

Some of the designers to watch include Peruvian Noe Bernacelli (whose pieces have already hit the pages of Vogue, #NBD), South Korean streetwear luxury designer Hong Kiyoung and Oregon-raised Kate Miles, who at 15 years old is already attracting the attention of fashion editors and giving other designers a run for their money.

Meet Mod Noir, the New Marc Jacobs Fragrance

Fashion designer Marc Jacobs is launching a new fragrance this June that will be sold exclusively at Sephora locations in the U.S. and Marc Jacobs boutiques before becoming globally available in July. The scent is based around the gardenia flower, which was also the main note in Jacobs’ debut fragrance over a decade ago.

Despite being a heavy hitter in fashion, having a successful cosmetics line, and being in the scent business for so long, Jacobs remains passionate about it, telling WWD, “Every time I go to an airport or open a magazine [and see one], I think, ‘Wow, I’m a real designer. I have a perfume.'”

The floral scent was created in collaboration with Jean-Claude Delville and features gardenia as the heart of the fragrance, green top notes and a musky finish. The graphic bottle is adorned with black and white striping — which happens to be Sephora’s brand colors — and will retail for $70 to $90, and $28 for the rollerball.

Jennifer Lawrence and Marion Cotillard are about to have some company now that Christian Dior‘s added a new celebrity to its roster of ambassadors. The French fashion house has nabbed Rihanna to star in its Secret Garden print and film campaigns, shot by Steven Klein at Versailles. 

Rihanna’s been having a pretty good week. She was just named the most streamed female artist on Spotify by male and female users (beating out even the likes of Beyoncé). The U.K. Daily Star notes that RiRi is the first black woman to serve as the face of Dior, which is actually crazy, but you know — better late than never.

Images of Rihanna allegedly shooting the campaign have leaked on Facebook, picturing the singer in a silver sequined turtleneck dress. We can’t wait to see the campaign in full and are thrilled that Dior is finally adding a little diversity to its roster of spokespeople.

Norman Parkinson Photography Coming to Charlotte Tilbury for Her Line’s First Collaboration



It was only a matter of time before Charlotte Tilbury dove into the beauty collaboration game with her namesake line — and she’s doing so in a very unique way. Rather than release new products or have someone be the face of her brand, Tilbury is paying homage to Norman Parkinson by featuring his work on her products. The makeup master teamed up with Parkinson’s family for a collection that will honor the photographer’s famous work, including the iconic Jerry Hall portraits he took for the cover of Vogue‘s May 1975 issue that’s a favorite of Tilbury’s.

“I have always been fascinated and inspired by the incredible work of Norman Parkinson. He is a legendary photographer that, in the fashion world, we turn to again and again as a reference and an inspiration — his work is on every moodboard,” says Tilbury of her admiration for the legend. “His grandson Jake is a close friend of mine and approached me with the opportunity to visit the Parkinson archive. After visiting the gallery of 750,000 negatives and 3,000 original prints, we came up with the idea of creating a limited-edition line in homage to his grandfather’s incredible body of work. I’m so proud of how each piece looks — like covetable vintage compacts that you can be proud to use in public,” she explains. (more…)

Discover JumpFromPaper’s 2-D Cartoon-Style Bags

Is it live or is it Photoshop? That’s the question these unique bags from JumpFromPaper are provoking all over Instagram.

The Taiwanese-founded brand creates innovative 3-D bags that appear to resemble a 2-D cartoon, and its campaign shots look like they’ve been digitally mastered.

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.
