Claire Danes and Allure Deliver the Goods for December (Forum Buzz)

Our forums would never have guessed in a million years that we’d be dependent on Allure to deliver a festive, glamorous and all-around gorgeous cover for the month of December. It has been evident in each and every thread that we were yearning for something stylish and Claire Danes gives us just what we desire. Shot by Sebastian Kim with styling from Paul Cavaco throughout, the Homeland actress looks sensational wearing a blue silk Lanvin dress and we’re completely sold.

Our forums were left shouting from the rooftops. “Oh she actually looks good, usually they have worse covers! Plus I love seeing her on the cover,” shared a pleasantly surprised KateTheGreatest.

“Claire Danes looks super glamorous, totally love the cover!” echoed marsnoop2.

Nymphaea was in the mood for some glamour too, writing, “Stunning Claire, great cover! Feels very pure.”

In agreement was Oxymore, hailing, “Really nice cover, I love it!”

Also over the moon with the outcome was MON: “For the first time, an Allure cover that will definitely stand out! Stunning!”

“I love this cover. This is much better than Vogue… Claire looks gorgeous and I love the lip color that pops on the cover,” admired TaylorBinque.

“I’ll take all of it. But given the change of editorship, I get the feeling this magazine is now an endangered species,” voiced a concerned tigerrouge after news broke that the magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Linda Wells has left the position after a 24-year tenure.

Gisele Bündchen Is Back for Chanel N°5’s Holiday Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Last year, Chanel gave us a fabulous campaign with Gisele Bündchen, introducing the Brazilian bombshell as the face of the iconic N°5 fragrance. For Christmas 2015, Chanel has unveiled a brand new set of images to help shift bottles of the legendary scent (like the fashion house even needs to). Once again photographed by Patrick Demarchelier with Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele on styling duties, Gisele wears a fabulously festive red dress (occasionally teamed with a tweed beanie) as she joyfully cradles an oversized version of the bottle.

Despite our love for Gisele, the images still received some scrutiny in the forums. “I love Chanel and I like Gisele but for me the two don’t work together. I don’t feel like she brings something to Chanel. Her Spring 2015 campaign was great and this is also great but it’s almost too perfect and quite lifeless,” slammed Lola701.

“I agree, I love Gisele and Chanel as a brand but their collaboration it just doesn’t work for me. She is a versatile model and can do so many things effortlessly, but she is so not Chanel,” echoed Sweet rus. (more…)

Your Christmas morning outfit is covered, thanks to Katy Perry. In collaboration with Beloved, she designed a 6-piece collection of festive onesies just in time for the holidays. The designs are fun and kitschy in true Katy Perry fashion.

We particularly love the Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus onesies (and their unintentionally terrifying faces) and the Ginger Bread onesies cleverly named “Ginger Bae” and “Ginger Boo.” (more…)

People Magazine Crowns David Beckham the Sexiest Man Alive — and We Couldn’t Agree More


And PEOPLE’s #SexiestManAlive for 2015 is… @DAVIDBECKHAM! @marchomstudio

Wouldn’t you know People Magazine actually got it right this year? They chose none other than David Beckham as 2015’s Sexiest Man Alive. Though this honor is overdue, we couldn’t be more pleased with their selection. Beckham is disarmingly handsome (and seems to get hotter as he ages) but he’s also a devoted husband to Victoria and a loving father of four. What’s sexier than a man who values family?

The soccer icon has long been a heartthrob: he graciously poses shirtless each season for H&M campaigns and he is one of the original purveyors of the man bun trend. Best of all, he’s humble. “I never feel that I’m an attractive, sexy person,” he told People. “I mean I like to wear nice clothes and nice suits and look and feel good, but I don’t ever think of myself that way.” How is this possible?

Victoria Beckham didn’t seem surprised. “She said, ‘Congratulations!'” Beckham shared, adding, “I would hope that she feels this way about me all the time anyway!” Of course she does. (Newsflash: we all do).

Although her last name might suggest otherwise, Conchita Wurst is the best, and the international sensation is bringing her all-round greatness to Sydney next year for a one-night Mardi Gras event.

Dubbed “Conchita: From Vienna with Love”, the Eurovision winner will make her Sydney debut at the Sydney Opera House on the night of March 3, 2016, alongside the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. Conchita will also be joined on-stage by Mardi Gras ambassador and drag diva Courtney Act, cabaret performers Paul Capsis and Trevor Ashley, and a “surprise guest”, according to the official press release.

The bearded lady will perform songs from her debut self-titled album, plus music from artists like Shirley Bassey and Cher, who have inspired her along the way. She explains that the upcoming gig will definitely be a “highlight” of her career, saying “From Vienna with Love will build a bridge across the globe from Vienna to Sydney, full of music, love and fun.”

Nick Jonas, Delta Goodrem, The Presets, Kylie and Dannii Minogue, Adam Lambert, Calvin Harris and Kelly Rowland are just some of the big names who have performed during Sydney’s Mardi Gras festivities over the years, and we’re equally, if not more excited for Conchita’s inevitable domination on our shores. 

Tickets for Conchita’s show are available here from today, November 18, with prices starting at $62.
