Fresh off the cover of U.S. Marie Claire this month, Kristen Stewart has now landed the cover of U.K. ELLE‘s September 2015 issue. The British title has been teasing us for days with snippets of the upcoming feature and the official cover has finally dropped. Photographed by Kai Z Feng, the American actress and Karl Lagerfeld favorite can be found wearing a Gucci shirt and trousers on the cover, which was styled by ELLE‘s fashion director Anne-Marie Curtis. Kristen serves up some savage beauty realness in the image, looking a little disheveled.
“Their best cover in years!! She looks fantastic, and I love that it’s an outdoor shot,” Miss Dalloway hailed instantly.
“I really like it. I usually don’t like Kristen’s magazine cover so this is a nice surprise,” admitted dodencebt.
ThatGuyPaul was quick to declare, “This is really nice!” inside the thread.
Also sharing some enthusiasm toward the cover was Urban Stylin: “Pretty, I love the colors! She’s also giving some good face for a change.”
Forum member honeycombchild was pleasantly surprised too. “This is actually better than I thought it could be, the coloring is nice. But yes, messy hair is a huge thing here in England, with such unpredictable weather we, as a nation, are trying to make messy, straggly hair a big trend,” he laughed.
“I really like the colors and the starkness of the image. It’s interesting that magazines, except Harper’s Bazaar, now build the styling sort of around her personal style. I like that, it feels more genuine. With all this said, I don’t think the image is suitable for the most important fashion issue,” shared Benn98, as faults started to surface.

When Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t selling eye roll-worthy clutches with names of rappers whose songs she probably didn’t become a “fan” of until she became BFF with Beyoncé, she is also out here trying to make sure our skin game is on point. The actress’ Goop lifestyle website has announced the launch of its own cosmetics range in collaboration with Juice Beauty.
Now, Gwyneth would never allow you to put any ol’ thing on your face, so of course the makeup and skincare line is made with organic ingredients. The California-based brand is teaming with the lifestyle site for a private-label range, Goop by Juice Beauty, due out in March. A look at Juice Beauty’s website gives an idea of what the product range might look like. There are plenty of anti-aging options in both the skincare and makeup categories, anti-acne items and several products made with green apples.
Paltrow will also sit as Juice’s creative director for makeup, with her range of Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments hitting shelves in January. Juice Beauty’s items have a two-year shelf life due to the organic nature of their ingredients – something to keep in mind when you inevitably make your purchases.
In the meantime, we will be sitting here patiently waiting to see what Gwynnie comes up with for her latest project.

And there we have it, another great night of The Bachelor! If you missed Episode 3, or just want to know how I’m feeling about the girls and the show, make sure you keep reading.
Tonight things kick off with the ladies all sitting together in the dining area, seeming to get along as they “casually” chat about how sad it was to see three girls leave the mansion at the last rose ceremony.
I would love to say “C’mon girls, you should be happy that the numbers are getting smaller,” but, the truth is, although you want to find love and be the last girl standing, it is actually really sad saying goodbye to people you have become close with. (more…)
When news came out abut Kim Kardashian’s publishing project comprising wholly of selfies, many had a quiet (or loud) chuckle to each other about the 352-page vanity venture. But the reality TV queen is the one laughing now, with Australian sales of Selfish making us seriously question ourselves.
Yes, sales in the US were less than impressive, with Radar Online revealing only 32,000 copies were sold throughout the country (That’s just 0.8% of Kim’s social media fans, FYI). While we’d like to rightfully restore our faith in mankind with these stats, it turns out Aussies might be the ones who have to re-think our light reading preferences.
According to Nielsen (via Sydney Morning Herald), Aussies purchased 7,200 copies of the book, making the demand three times stronger than the US per capita. During the first week of release, Selfish was Dymocks’ number one biography title and ranked third overall. Yep, biography title.
A spokesperson from the Australian publisher of Selfish, Hardie Grant, said, “We sold out of our initial print run in Australia almost immediately, driven by her profile, the book publicity both here and abroad and her amazing social media presence.”
Congratulations, Kim. You win.

Vogue Brazil has been gaining attention lately by tapping the likes of Kim Kardashian and Gigi Hadid for recent issues and now, we’re treated to a cover featuring Behati Prinsloo. Zee Nunes captured the Victoria’s Secret Angel wearing a flattering creation by Louis Vuitton for the title’s August cover. The Brazilian edition of Vogue may be heading in a new direction because this cover, in particular, reminds us of something from across the pond.
“I’m getting British Vogue vibes,” shared A.D.C. the moment the cover surfaced.
“No! I’m sorry. What’s with all the different fonts and the hot pink? And I agree with A.D.C., it looks very much like British Vogue, albeit very inferior with a pouty girl,” replied Benn98 in agreement.
Sharing the same sentiments was Kite, who pointed out, “Looks like 2005 British Vogue.”
Forum member burbuja8910 felt the same way and responded, “Totally agree, also looks like a cover of Vogue Australia. Behati looks flawless.”
“The cover would be amazing WITHOUT those texts. They’re hideous, bad font choice,” phungnam96 declared.
“It has a British Vogue look to it but I love it,” said Urban Stylin as things started to shape up.
TeeVanity was quick to enlighten the thread by adding, “Behati is so cool, I love this.”
Could the cover have been better or did Vogue Brazil hit a home run once again? Join our discussion here.
Yesterday, Rihanna made us more jealous than usual on Instagram, inundating our timelines with images of her getting ready for and celebrating at the Kadooment Day parade in her native Barbados as part of the annual Crop Over festivities. Of course, Riri was dressed to the nines as she played with the Zulu International Band in a bejeweled bra top and bottoms, neckwear, a feather headdress and matching wings. As always, she looked absolutely stunning.
Rihanna’s outfit is typical of Crop Over and carnival costumes. There is always lots of bling, plenty of plumage and, of course, a generous amount of skin showing. That is the entire point of carnival – it’s a time to let loose and embrace your body (in fact, you see people of all body types in barely-there carnival outfits) while jumping and wining (which international publications are wrongly calling twerking) in the street to upbeat Caribbean tunes. But of course, what is a typical masquerading outfit to some is a vulgar look to others. The UK’s Mirror reported on Rihanna’s Kadooment Day look, calling it raunchy, pointing to the fact that only part of Rihanna’s derrière was covered.
“When it comes to flashing the flesh, no one does it better than Rihanna,” writer Edward Roberts wrote. “A fact that the singer proved as she got kitted-up in a raunchy costume for Crop Over Festival in Barbados on Monday.” Ummm…raunchy?
Sure, Rihanna’s outfit is skimpy, but besides the fact that ALL carnival costumes are like that, the term “raunchy” rubbed us the wrong way. Merriam-Webster defines the word as “slovenly, dirty… very smelly… obscene, smutty.” We’re confused as to how Riri’s outfit is more obscene than, say, something a Victoria’s Secret Angel might wear during the brand’s annual fashion show? It is a big deal for a Victoria’s Secret Angel to wear the coveted Fantasy Bra. Indeed, the Mirror noted that Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima “stun[ned]” in their respective Fantasy Bra looks, which were basically just as bare as Riri’s. For Rio’s annual Carnival, the Mirror reports on Gisele’s look, calling it simply a “bikini.” Why is Rihanna degraded for wearing pretty much the same thing in an environment where it is completely acceptable?
