The Apple Watch Sport Is Apparently Not Scratch-Proof

If you ordered yourself an Apple Watch Sport, you might want to treat it with a little TLC now that reports are coming out that it might not be as durable a device as you think. It turns out the least expensive iteration of the Apple Watch has a bit of a cosmetic issue that could prove to be really annoying when you’re looking at your watch face to see if it’s time for you to get up and walk around after spending hours on the couch in the throes of a Netflix binge.

Apparently, the Apple Watch Sport’s screen doesn’t have the same sapphire coating as the more expensive versions and is prone to getting scratched. The face of the sporty smartwatch is made from Ion-X glass and is supposed be impervious to scratching, but turns out it actually scratches a lot more easily than it should.

YouTube channel Unbox Therapy tested the Apple Watch Sport screen against different materials. The watch face was left unscathed when it was scratched with a key and a knife, but once they used sandpaper on it: scratch city. 

We don’t think most people will attempt to sand down their Apple Watches, but if you are going to purchase one, you might want to watch out for brick walls and other scratchy surfaces.

Aya Jones Looks ‘Smoking Hot’ on Numéro’s May 2015 Cover (Forum Buzz)

We always depended on Numéro for fetching, innovative covers, but then its standards started to slip a while ago. The French title is making a comeback, though, with its captivating cover for May 2015. Mariacarla Boscono bored us to tears fronting the mag’s April edition, but Aya Jones thankfully brings the fire on Numéro‘s latest. Photographed by Daniel Sannwald, the French-Jamaican beauty turned up the heat modeling a white number from Louis Vuitton.

One particular element has disappointed our forum members, however. “The flame backdrop looks so stupid,” noted Marc10.

“Fire background? Really? This is so cheesy, come on,” exclaimed sore soon after.

Forum member mistress_f felt the same way and echoed, “The fire background looks terribly cheap. I’m willing to hope that it was intentionally bad, but I don’t like it one bit. She looks great though.”

In agreement was gossiping. “It looks computer generated, I hate that. Background is hideous,” she declared.

“I love this, it shows her range as a model. My only complaint is the shadow on the cheekbones, it’s a bit too heavy,” TREVOFASHIONISTO acknowledged.

As the discussion started to turn around, LagerfeldBoy credited, “This definitely shows her range. When I think sweet, lovely, and pretty, Aya comes to mind. I’ve never found her to be quite sexy but this is definitely showing her versatility. The image is giving me Naomi teas with the bangs, tbh.”

“She looks so smoking hot,” voiced mikose.

Colette and McDonald’s Team Up for a Capsule Collection

McDonald's for Colette

McDonald’s, international pusher of the Happy Meal, is getting a bit of a fashionable makeover with the help of Colette. The “food” giant and Paris-based boutique are teaming up for a capsule collection that, of course, is heavy on the McDonald’s theme. Taking inspiration from items like french fries and the Big Mac, the collection will include clothes and accessories for fans of the fast food joint who missed out on Moschino’s pricey McDonald’s-themed Fall 2014 pieces

Graphic representations of popular menu items will appear on notebooks, smartphone cases, T-shirts and totes. And while this particular range isn’t as flashy as Moschino’s, it still seems a little repetitive after how ubiquitous those fry-shaped smartphone cases were last year. But hey, if there’s still a demand for fast food fashion, who better than McDonald’s to cash in?

The collection will be available in stores and online from May 4 to 31.

Sasha Pivovarova’s Back on the Cover of Vogue Korea (Forum Buzz)

Along with Gemma Ward, Sasha Pivovarova is a model we tend to be biased toward in our forums. She returns to front the May 2015 issue of Vogue Korea sporting one of Nicolas Ghesquière‘s Pre-Fall 2015 designs for Louis Vuitton. Sticking to their roots of originality, Sasha sits in front of an unusual large aquarium fish tank while perched on a bench as if on location in some trendy downtown restaurant. Can Vogue Korea keep up their winning streak this month?

Forum members weren’t satisfied in the slightest. “Seems like every other month she’s on a Vogue Korea cover. She’s amazing but I am not really fond of this cover,” summoned TeeVanity right away.

“It’s a bit of an eyesore so I’m hoping the better quality cover has a better saturation. Having said that, it’s an okay cover. There’s really something off with the turtle neck and her hair together it makes her head look big and popping?” asked MON.

GlamorousBoy wasn’t interested either writing, “What a mess.” Is it really that bad?

Sharing the same sentiments was Benn98: “Weird. When I checked their IG earlier they previewed this cover and it was blue. Should’ve gone with that instead of this green. I’m surprised to see Vogue Korea repeat a model in such a short span of time. Not fond of this one at all, unfortunately.”

“The cover had the potential and the elements to make it good but it does not work at all, it’s a mess basically.The hair and styling are awful, OMG! Sasha is a great model and I liked the idea of the aquarium but they did not pull it off,” echoed Bertrando3.

Yet not everyone was left baffled. “I like this cover; it’s an odd color combination but very striking. Definitely something I’d be drawn to on the newsstand,” cestmagique noted.

Donatella Versace Claps Back at Giorgio Armani’s Comments about Her Late Brother

Plenty of people were offended by Giorgio Armani’s Sunday Timeinterview this weekend, in which he outlined his personal guidelines for how gay men should dress, but it wasn’t those homophobic and insensitive remarks that have Donatella Versace seeing red.

During the interview, Armani talked about his more conservative approach to fashion, attempting to illustrate this with an alleged quote from the late Gianni Versace. According to Armani, Versace “was looking at the models, and he said to me, ‘I dress sluts. You dress church ladies.’”

Seems like a pretty innocuous comment between fellow designers. Except Donatella Versace was not at all amused and she says that Armani made up the exchange entirely. “I find it extremely rude and tasteless that Mr. Armani has once again put words into my brother’s mouth, especially because he is sadly no longer with us to reply,” she said. “This is the second time he claims this was said. The first was immediately after his death, and he apologized to me. When my brother spoke about fashion, the only word that ever came from his mouth was glamour. What should be said about my brother is: May Gianni Versace rest in peace.”

Yeesh. Seems like Armani is offending everyone this week.
