Mica Arganaraz Winks for i-D’s Winter 2014 Cover (Forum Buzz)

After i-D released its Winter 2014 cover via its website earlier this week, our forum members immediately began to discuss the image. One-time Prada girl Mica Arganaraz was photographed by Willy Vanderperre for the front cover, sporting a messy updo tended to by hairstylist Duffy. Peter Philips applied thick, clumpy mascara to Mica’s face, while stylist Olivier Rizzo selected a Christian Dior dress for the Argentinian model to wear.

Members of our forums share mixed feelings toward i-D‘s latest cover. “Yeah it really is fresh. Mica looks great. The hair, makeup and styling complement each other. Willy is fantastic,” raved anlabe32, who got the thread off on a positive note.

“Their best cover in awhile, love that [she’s] wearing that Dior dress, hair and makeup perfect as well,” added a satisfied HeatherAnne.

“Mica looks really great here and the styling fits her perfectly!” wrote justaguy.

Also on board with the cover was TeeVanity: “It really is gorgeous.”

But the rest of us aren’t feeling it. “The hair looks like a rat’s nest,” stated littlekiki.

“Guess I’m in the minority here, but I hate the makeup and overall styling of the cover – same for the Dior dress. Many things come to mind looking at it, but ‘fresh’ isn’t one of them,” disapproved mistress_f.

Jean Paul Gaultier Teams with Eastpak for One Epic Backpack Collaboration

Eastpak has tapped the legendary Jean Paul Gaultier to help in the fight against AIDS. The brand asked Gaultier to put his own spin on one of its backpacks and the result is a convertible, wearable, all-in-one jacket/backpack combo. 

The jacket and backpack are attached and can be worn as an all-in-one piece. But if you’re not into that sort of thing, you can roll up the jacket portion, stuff it into the bag and wear it as a backpack alone. The designer used three embroidered vintage Japanese bomber jackets to create the pieces, which will be auctioned off December 1 on World AIDS Day. Proceeds from the auction will benefit Designers Against AIDS. 

Visit Eastpak’s website to participate in the auction (which starts in 16 days) and watch the video above to see how the bag was made.

Forum Members Weigh in on Cara Delevingne’s Latest Beauty Ad for YSL (Forum Buzz)

Cara Delevingne is no stranger to fronting beauty campaigns for Yves Saint Laurent. The British model was first tapped by the iconic French brand back in 2013 and the relationship is still going strong. This time around, we see the 22-year-old beauty looking as though she’s just stepped in from a night on the town, but still sporting a face full of flawless makeup (obviously, after using YSL’s innovative products). Cara’s new campaign image for YSL’s Spring 2015 collection surfaced on our forums earlier and forum members are deliberating over the brand’s efforts this season.

Ad Campaign YSL Beauty Spring 2015 Cara Delevingne


“That highlight on her forehead is the only thing I notice, then I slowly bring my eyes down to the horrible makeup,” shared an underwhelmed TREVOFASHIONISTO. This doesn’t look like it’s going to go down well.

Nymphaea agreed and commented, “A bit too much makeup on her face.”

Also not showing much enthusiasm toward the campaign was ParisFashionMuse, who thinks the advert is “a boring image.”

“This reminds me of the Friends episode where Ross has to do Rachel’s makeup. Who approved this? Yikes,” disapproved a horrified mistress_f.

GivenchyHomme had a strong opinion and wasn’t afraid to share it with us: “She looks like a child playing dress up. Whoever did this makeup should be fired.” Ouch!

Condé Nast Settles Intern Suit for 5.8 Million

W Magazine Oct 14 Noami Campbell


If you were a Condé Nast Intern in June of 2007 or later, you might soon be getting a check in the mail. The publishing giant has been battling a lawsuit filed by over 7,500 former interns who claim they were underpaid for the long hours they spent working at Conde Nast. Reuters reports that the publisher will now be sending payments of anywhere between $750 and $1,900 to the scorned members of their old low-cost labor force, young men and women who stayed in the office at all hours organizing samples or picking up snacks for editors. 

Condé Nast nixed their internship program last year after getting slapped with the suit. CEO Chuck Townsend said in an email to staffers, “Settling the lawsuit is the right business decision for Condé Nast. It allows us to focus our time and resources on developing meaningful, new opportunities to support future up-and-coming talent.”

Gwyneth Paltrow Opens Blowdry Chain in London

You won’t find a single leather-bound journal or cashmere sweater at Gwyneth Paltrow’s latest business endeavor. The lifestyle guru is determined to dip her perfectly-manicured toes into as many different waters as possible — as long as those waters promise to be lucrative. She’s already telling us how to eat right and dress on her Goop website, so it was only a matter of time before Gwyneth started helping us decide what to do with our hair.

Gwyneth and celebrity hairstylist David Babaii have joined forces as ambassadors for the Blo Blow Dry Bar chain. The Goopster just helped launch a new location for the brand at Market Place in London’s Covent Garden district. The actress took to Instagram to announce the newly-opened location, and herald the arrival of the first Blo in London. There are already over 45 Blo bars in North America and around the world.

Babaii and Gwyneth signed on with Blo in May, in hopes that their celebrity status and expertise would help elevate the brand. The trio seems to be rolling along quite nicely. Gwyneth recently helped launch a beauty bar from sister brand Body By Blo in Naples. Between these openings and her Goop pop-up, Gwyneth’s certainly a busy gal.

Flashback: Vogue Paris November 2006 with Paris Hilton by Mario Testino

As Kim Kardashian breaks the Internet on the cover of Paper‘s Winter 2014 issue, we take a look back at Paris Hilton’s controversial cover of Vogue Paris for this week’s Fashion Flashback.

Carine Roitfeld tapped Paris for the November 2006 cover, getting Mario Testino to photograph the blond socialite for the flattering cover shoot. Paris flaunted her sun-kissed skin and toned physique wearing a gray flannel skirt by Azzedine Alaïa teamed with a white cotton tank from Ralph Lauren. Gone were the hair extensions in favor of a cleverly-styled shorter hairdo and long fringe, making Paris look better than ever.

Paris may not have been everyone’s dream cover subject at the time, but the rest of the issue doesn’t disappoint. David Sims captured models Coco Rocha, Natasha Poly, Bette Franke, Tanya Dziahileva and a range of other girls for a fabulous beauty story, doing each of the girls justice by adding great shots to their ever-growing portfolios. Norwegian model Iselin Steiro went skiing for the magazine, photographed by Mikael Jansson, with Karl Templer on styling duties. Diana Dondoe and Missy Rayder both baked under the scorching summer sun, showcasing the season’s hottest new accessory — the oversized handbag. Later in the issue, Roitfeld styled Lara Stone for their first shoot together (there would be many more to come) with the model donning knitwear and denim pieces as Terry Richardson captured it all on location in Paris.

It’s times like this when we truly miss Roitfeld’s presence at French Vogue. Familiarize yourself with the content of Vogue Paris’ November 2006 issue here.
