A couple weeks ago, Louis Vuitton released images and a teaser video from the latest installment of the brand's 'Art of Travel' campaign, starring David Bowie and Arizona Muse, and directed by Romain Gavras. Although the response to the ads in the forums has been negative overall, some tFSers went further, accusing the campaign of using blackface (in the image above). 

"Oh great, more blackface," said LabelWhore4.

From Shiru: "Blackface aside, what a horrible campaign."

But not everyone sees it that way. 

"Oh come on," says anlabe32, "those are supposed to be masks."

And more forcefully, from iclawhands: "Seriously?! People are going to call 'blackface' on this? So everyone's masked ball masks should be their skintone, yeah?"

The Wanted: Song of Style Sweaters for eLUXE

eLUXE 2

You may recognize Song of Style as the must-read blog of Aimee Song, the California Internet It-Girl who throws together bold, but laid-back, everyday outfits and shows ultra-chic interior designs to boot. As the go-to fashion voice of the digital age, she garners a whopping 3.7 million hits a month and has built up a steady fan base of over a million Instagram followers. Now it’s with such success that it comes as no surprise that Canadian e-tailer eLUXE is merging Aimee's unique style with the season's hottest sweatshirt trend.

eLUXE 1

Dubbed Song of Style for eLUXE, the collaboration will result in a limited run, six-piece capsule collection of luxury T-shirts and sweatshirts available exclusively through this holiday season beginning December 4, 2013. Designed to be integrated and imagined by the wearer, the collection is both attainable and aspirational. A perfect cut tee and a sweatshirt in a classic crew or raw neck are available in chic dark storm and white, white and black or grey and black combinations. Priced from $40 to $90.

Needless to say, it’s Aimee’s trademark style to a T – that is, taking a simple piece and harmonizing it (the music puns are unavoidable I’m afraid) with your own personal quirk and style sensibilities.

"For this collaboration I really wanted to hone in on my approach to fashion and style with my ‘Do Epic Chic’ logo and my love for Los Angeles with the playful ‘VioLA,’” says Aimee. “The T-shirt and sweatshirt styles go perfectly with my effortless style of dressing and I'm excited to pair them with denim and sky-high heels this holiday. Working with eLUXE has been a great experience and I'm excited to share my designs with the Canadian market and beyond."

I’m super excited for this and also happy to hear that eLUXE is fusing fashion and culture with such a perfect capsule collection. The online retail powerhouse also claims that this collaboration marks the start of a series of capsule collections with notable fashion voices to be rolled out throughout 2014, so stay tuned for more info.

Jessica Hart Demonstrates the Easiest Work-to-Party Outfit Ever

Keeping in mind the sartorial train wreck she was forced into at this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, you can’t blame Jessica Hart for wanting to keep things sleek and chic for a while.

And we can’t think of anything more incongruous with a backwards sheer jumpsuit accessorized with mismatching underwear and an inflatable balloon than the skinny black suit Miss Hart wore to Australia’s GQ Men of the Year Awards on Tuesday.

Proving a dress isn’t always your sexiest option, the model managed to keep it classy despite effectively going shirtless on the arrivals carpet. Her closely tailored blazer and trousers is changing all our preexisting notions about plain black suits – can you name a more genius office-to-bar transition than simply leaving your shirt on your desk?

Bonus points awarded for keeping her beauty look characteristically fresh (Jess does bed hair and dewy skin like nobody’s business, even when she’s just stepped of a flight from NYC). Makeup-wise, she’s keeping to lip gloss, a slick of mascara and brushed up brows, but a smoky eye wouldn’t go amiss if it’s after 5 p.m.

i-D's first cover for the Winter 2013 Collectors Issue features Cara Delevingne, styled in a revealing Cruella De Vil-esque fur from Valentino's Fall 2013 collection. The British model's face is covered with a thick white base, pronounced doll-like lips and dramatic eye makeup; her hair is teased into a curly, clownish mop. She is either channeling a mime or a Vivienne Westwood runway model, it's really anybody's guess.

Karlie Kloss Covers Another Issue of Vogue Japan (Forum Buzz)

Clearly a Vogue Japan favorite, Karlie Kloss has landed her 3rd cover for the publication in just a little over half a year (it’s her 4th in total). Styled similarly as on her June cover, for the January 2014 issue, Karlie emulates the "Girls in Uniform" theme on the cover that is a little too cluttered with text.

But members of the tFS forums were mostly left unimpressed by the cover and the Karlie overload. 

“Another one? She has so many better VJ covers than this one, it just doesn't do anything for me,” wrote UpperEchelon

Nymphaea found that Karlie looked like an “Edie Campbell impersonator” on this cover, while teaars wondered when it was finally Japanese shooting star Chiharu Okunugi’s – she’s rumored to be in the new Celine campaign – turn to get a Vogue Japan cover. 

“Nothing Karlie does excites me anymore, but this is a decent cover,” justaguy chimed in.

It’s true that when a magazine features the same person on the cover over and over, it can easily get boring. But Karlie has obviously earned herself her superstar status and her staggering amount of Vogue covers only exemplifies that. I say yes to giving other models a chance as well, but why would I disapprove of having Karlie on the cover every three months if the result is always as solid as this?
