Vogue Russia Gets More Stale and Uninspiring Every Month (Forum Buzz)

Spring typically is full of blooming flowers, the color pink and happiness. While we may appreciate something different, Vogue Russia completely missed the mark with its March cover. The magazine released its most recent installment, which features Russian newcomer Valery Kaufman wearing Prada in a classic portrait captured by Patrick Demarchelier. Unfortunately for us, it’s a complete bore.

Our forum members aren’t afraid to voice their opinions. “IMO this is so bland and it’s not just Demarchelier’s fault, Valery is giving me nothing,” kokobombon expressed.

“Valery is getting more boring every day IMO,” added gulsah in agreement.

Melancholybaby ultimately agreed and responded, “Which is why she’s the perfect choice for VR. This magazine gets more stale and uninspiring every month.”

“This magazine is depressing… It puts me in a blue mood,” Creative informed us.

Also unafraid to share his sentiments was MON: “Do they even try anymore? I mean this is not a bad cover and yes, they’ve had worse but come on… month after month of lackluster covers. Before they had covers that are visually appealing, some that are seductive but now… all are borderline safe and pedestrian. Gone are the energy their covers used to have.”

Moofins disapproved too and slammed, “Eh, pass. From the colors to the layout, it feels stale.”

“Boring, but I’m happy they’re supporting Russian talent that is not Natasha or Natalia,” anlabe32 commented, altering the mood of the thread slightly.

Watch: Helen Mirren’s New L’Oréal Paris Commercial Is Everything

Helen Mirren is relentless in her awesomeness these days. The 69-year-old actress gave us all the life last week when a commuter snapped a photo of her on the R train looking like an IRL Celine ad. Helen is clearly a cool gal and we just fell in love with her even more, thanks to L’Oréal Paris.

Helen is the beauty brand’s U.K. ambassador and her first commercial is here — and yes, it’s awesome. Helen pushes L’Oréal Paris’ Age Perfect Re-Hydrating Cream, starting the commercial in a dressing gown only to emerge from her room clad in all black everything with a badass moto jacket to boot. The actress ends the commercial with a saucy glance at a young man stretching before taking a run, which is a moment we can totally relate to.

If you can get through this commercial without saying, “Yaaaas” at least once, you may just be a robot. Watch Helen in action above.

Wendy Williams Is Launching a Line for HSN

Wendy Williams has made her way into your living room, and now her sights are set on getting into your closet. The talk show host is joining forces with HSN on a clothing collection that is due out quite soon.

Wendy created a range that includes a strong selection of dresses, sweaters and bottoms as well as loungewear ranging from sizes XS to 3X. This collection won’t be a one-off for Wendy. According to WWD, she will show a few pieces from the first collection, and will be returning throughout the year to unroll other collections. 

Wendy, who herself is a busty gal, infused several pieces with spandex, keeping in mind the varied bodies of the women she’ll be selling to. “It’s very important we have spandex in everything,” she told WWD. “I’m known for that odd snap, right here at the gaping. My blouses aren’t made especially for larger-chested girls, that snap is going to count, and ease and affordability.”

Everything from the line is under $100 and is expected to hit HSN airwaves March 28, and roll out online on March 6. Wendy joins celebrities like Iman, Kelly Osbourne and June Ambrose, who have all collaborated on lines for the shopping channel.

Vogue Paris Produces Three Provocative Covers for March (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Paris’ March covers are the latest to drop in our forums — and we’re loving them! Repeating a concept from 2012, Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy and Lara Stone deliver a set of three identical covers. Each was captured by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott wearing the same black leather Prada coat styled by Emmanuelle Alt, striking the same pose and with the exact same hairstyle.

Members of our forums are sure making their voices heard loud and clear. “WOW! What a cast! I’m loving it even if Lara & Daria’s faces look kind of Photoshopped. And I honestly don’t care which one I’ll receive, they’re all amazing,” raved Oxymore within seconds of the thread being active.

“First impression: WOW, stunning! They are really making an entrance!” added Nymphaea.

MON agreed: “WOW!!! I am really happy about this cover because it is sexy, sultry and seductive! It gives me the vibe of those movies wherein the man comes inside his hotel room and finds a woman sitting on that chair trying to seduce him while wearing a coat with nothing inside. It also gives the vibe of a woman up to no good.”

Also on board with the idea was Miss Dalloway: “Fantastic, I mean they overdid the airbrush again here, but still I love them all. Kate by far selling me this Basic Instinct/Seduction theme best, and hence why she is in a legendary lane, no matter how sick we are of her!”



“Wow! Finally an amazing cover from Vogue Paris, very sexy! I think I didn’t have this feeling since Carine Roitfeld left (or at least not very often). I like all three covers the same, maybe Kate and Lara look a little bit better, Daria’s face seems too Photoshopped maybe, but they all look amazing anyway,” shared Zelda Zonk.

“Very sexy, intense and striking. I wouldn’t complain to have any of these, but Daria catches my eyes more here,” Kanna noted.

So, we’ve established the covers are sexy and that “wow” is the most overused word of the day. Get in on the action here.

Jean Touitou Is Sorry for Saying the N-Word a Thousand Times

After pissing off a chunk of the Internet when he rolled out a look he called “Last N****s in Paris” during the A.P.C. Fall 2015 men’s presentation, Jean Touitou has finally come out to address the issue. The designer collaborated with Timberland for that particular collection, giving his look the dubious name because he thinks Timberlands are a “strong ghetto signifier.” After catching wind of Touitou’s unfortunate nomenclature, Timberland cut ties with A.P.C.

Touitou says he’s sorry about the whole thing. In an interview with The Guardian published today, the designer expresses his regret for using the word — but not before trying to sort of justify saying it at all, harkening back to his experience at a Kanye West concert: “If all the people had been singing this song, including white people, will they get into trouble for using that word?” We don’t know, Touitou. If all the people jumped off a bridge, including the white people, would they get in trouble? What does this have to do with anything? 

But after the qualifiers, we do get a genuine apology from the designer. “I was just quoting a song, but I was ignorant of the power of that word, that it would upset so many people, and I deeply regret that.” 

Live and learn, Touitou — we still love you and your clothes.

Karl Lagerfeld Delves Into Childrenswear

Karl Lagerfeld sure loves to work. In addition to producing several collections a year for Chanel and Fendi, he’s got his own label to tend to. It’s a lot for anyone, but for the 81 year old, it’s not enough. The designer is piling yet another project onto his already full plate, announcing that he will be adding childrenswear options to his eponymous brand.

Set to launch in Spring 2016, Lagerfeld’s new range will produce two collections a year and have a rock ‘n’ roll vibe. The line will include clothing and accessories for children from 0 to 16 years old.

While there isn’t word yet on who may appear in the Lagerfeld kids’ campaign, something tells us that the designer may look to his pint-sized pal Hudson Kroenig for help when the time comes.
