Caroline Trentini’s Vogue Ukraine Cover Gets Mixed Reviews (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Ukraine managed to impress us last month, but can the publication do it again? For its big March 2015 issue, the magazine tapped Caroline Trentini and enlisted Tom Munro to capture both the cover image and accompanying story. The U.S. Vogue favorite stands before a studio backdrop wearing a piece from Louis Vuitton with her hair pulled back, putting the focus on the (questionable) eye makeup.

“I’d expect something a little more dark and sexy from Tom Munro. This cover isn’t working for me because I don’t like the makeup and Caroline is overly Photoshopped but I do like the colors,” noted KateTheGreatest.

Oxymore shared the same sentiments: “I don’t like it at all. I think the makeup doesn’t suit her too. I’ve never been a Caroline fan and I don’t understand the hype around her.”

Not everyone disliked the cover, though. “I like it a lot, I think Caroline looks great and I love the color scheme,” said marsnoop2.

“Sorry, but I really do not understand how is it possible that this magazine still exists… but this cover is pretty good, I like the colors,” GlamorousBoy shared.

Breathless simply declared, “I don’t hate it.”

Forum member ellastica was also on board and admired, “They did at least try to do something different with the cover.. love her freckles. Caroline looks so grown up here!”

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and Rebecca Minkoff is feeling a little sentimental. The designer rounded up eight of her style influencer pals to muse on love for a Valentine’s Day themed video, aptly called “Love is in the Air at Rebecca Minkoff.” Leandra Medine, DJ Chelsea Leyland, Refinery29 Senior Style Editor Annie Georgia Greenberg, P.S. – I Made This… founder Erica Domesek, Teen Vogue Senior Editor Jessica Minkoff, stylist Marina Muñoz, Flour Shop founder Amirah Kassem and Karen Walker campaign star Toast the dog join the designer for the video.

The crew sits down to answer a series of love-related questions, like what it feels like to be in love (like getting Gakked on Nickelodeon, according to Medine), if they believe in soulmates and what their ideal relationship would be like. It’s definitely a touching and fun way to celebrate the holiday — whether or not you share it with someone special.

Watch Minkoff and crew chat about love in the video above.

Naomi Campbell may not be too keen on them, but the Instagirls are definitely hot now, and they’re racking up the campaigns.

Taking inspiration from New York City’s streetwise mood, Simon Cave captured Ms. Hadid posing with a series of candy-colored pastel and neutral carryalls, including a zipper-festooned backpack and a play on the crossbody, a warm weather staple, rendered in a kind of Tiffany blue.

Public School Will Show Its Biggest Women’s Collection Ever This Season

Public School has enjoyed tremendous success in the past year, winning the 2014 CFDA Award for Menswear Designer of the Year and the International Woolmark Prize. Since its launch in 2007, most of the buzz has been around the brand’s menswear offerings and the question was always when the label would delve into womenswear. After plenty of prodding from industry people, including Anna Wintour, Public School bowed its first women’s collection during last year’s Fall 2014 shows.

A year and a CFDA award later, Public School is looking to beef up its women’s venture. According to The New York Times, the fashion house will show twice as many womenswear looks this season. But making clothes for women coming from a menswear background has not been without its challenges. Designer Dao-Yi Chow says the most difficult part is “learning the anatomy of a woman — and learning to speak a whole other language.”

Public School will show its Fall 2015 collection on Sunday and we can’t wait to see what the brand has in store.

Kendall Jenner Appears ‘Lifeless’ on Allure’s March Cover (Forum Buzz)

First the Kardashian-Jenners took over our TV screens and now they’re dominating the newsstand. Kim Kardashian’s cover of Love‘s Spring 2015 issue is available now, while Allure‘s newest cover goes to half-sister Kendall Jenner. Photographed by Mario Testino, the 19-year-old is captured up close and personal, sporting a head full of voluminous curls, thick black eyeliner and a nude lip.

The forum thread naturally received attention the moment it was started. “She’s not going away anytime soon is she?” [J.]Oliver asked, not getting us off on a positive note.

“Well, at least it means her work by Mario Testino is not for a US Vogue cover,” JoCaderone stated after we first assumed the shoot a while back was for Vogue.

Oxymore didn’t show much enthusiasm either: “I saw that cover on twitter and totally thought it was Mila Kunis. The makeup is bad. The hair, well they wanted to try something new I guess but it doesn’t work for me. She doesn’t give me anything here. It’s lifeless.”

“I don’t care who’s on the cover of Allure, but why are their covers always terrible? I feel like Anna needs to step in here, like she did with Lucky,” added blueorchid.

Marsnoop2 yawned, “Ugh, still unimpressed by her. And to think I was starting to find her less offensive as a model.”

“It’s like a match made in heaven. Testino & Kendall serving the kings of mediocrity for Allure!” slammed coutugh. Ouch.

“I have a problem with the hair, doesn’t look good on her. Those pictures are not appealing to me,” Emmanuelle said.
