French model Marie Piovesan has landed her second Vogue cover. On Vogue Ukraine’s December cover, shot by Sofia Sanchez & Mauro Mongiello, the 27-year-old model poses elegantly against a simple white background, wearing a Dior Fall 2013 dress, with the only festive elements being the opulent jewelry. Her quiet beauty is accentuated with bleached eyebrows and gorgeous makeup that gives her an aristocratic look. The sophisticated cover garnered a lot of praise among tFS forum members.

“Yet another magnificent cover from Vogue Ukraine. Marie looks incredibly elegant and poised! The hair and makeup is perfect and the styling is solid. The text is a bit messy but it doesn't take away from the beauty of the cover shot,” commented Nepenthes 

HeatherAnne applauded the model choice. She posted, “Marie is so regal and distinctive looking, this cover wouldn't have the same power without her, but with her it's magic.”

Teaars agreed, “Absolutely bewitching but still feminine and just plain arresting. Marie was a perfect choice for the cover. Vogue Ukraine is surely becoming the best Vogue edition in terms of the cover shots, art direction, and photographer/model selection.”

Vogue Ukraine is still considerably new. But they have had a great run with covers and editorials, and it looks like they have no intention to slow down. An impeccable cover, and a very deserved one for Marie.

It will not come as too much of a surprise that the unstoppable Vanessa Axente has scored a beauty campaign already. The Hungarian stunner is the newest face of the Chanel beauty line, starring in a Holiday ad, shot by Solve Sundsbo

“Vanessa looks gorgeous, she has a vintage appeal to her that I love,” commented TheoG in the tFS forums.  

“Congrats to her, but why so much Photoshop…? They made her nose quite smaller and hand is very unnatural…” wondered MyFavorite

To which teaars added, “Agreed about the vintage appeal, and also about the fact that they Photoshopped her fantastic, characteristic nose so much. But still I am super happy for her, never would have associated Vanessa with Chanel Beauty, I was thinking something more along the lines of YSL or Givenchy beauty, but no complaints here!”

“I find myself actually liking this one,” wrote chanelh

So do I. Two gorgeous faces who are a perfect fit for a beauty campaigns. Refreshing and beautiful. Congratulations, Vanessa and Lindsey!

Shop Beyonce’s Buzzy Australian Designer Picks

Not one to limit herself to anything ever, let alone skydiving and draping herself over Brunswick porches, Beyoncé has also beystowed her beylessing on a lucky quartet of antipodean designers. Apparently she was hitting up a few local boutiques too, and has now immortalized four buzzy local labels via the carefully curated ‘Hotlinks’ hall of fame on her Beyhive blog: Sydney’s Dion Lee and Emma Mulholland, and New Zealand’s NOM*d and Karen Walker. Mazel tov, guys.

Since it’s the goal of a large percent of the first world’s population to become as close to Beyoncé as is humanly possible, we’re guessing the websites of Lee, Mulholland, Walker and Nom*d have had a significant increase in traffic over the last few days. But miraculously, not all of Beyoncé’s hot picks are currently being peddled via eBay at a 1000% markup. See beylow for four ways to have your outfit given the inadvertent Beyoncé stamp of approval.

Barbie Receives a Christmas Makeover Courtesy of Stephen Jones

With the holiday season just around the corner, it's only fitting that Barbie receives a festive makeover to spread a little seasonal cheer – in couture, of course. Thanks to master milliner Stephen Jones –best known for his eye-catching hat designs for clients like Rihanna, Princess Beatrice, Kate Middleton and Lady Gaga –  the iconic doll got the designer treatment with five new couture creations complete with fabulously festive headwear (naturally) for the ultimate party-perfect wardrobe this season. Including cocktail dresses, velvet minis, floor-length and red carpet ready gowns, Jones' collection features Happy Holly Barbie, Christmas Tree Barbie, Snow Globe Barbie, Santa Baby Barbie and Toffee Ice Barbie. "The inspiration behind the looks is traditional Christmas symbolism such as holly, reindeer and snow," said Jones, naming his favorite creation as the Holly Surprise design saying it's "very Barbie and the robin on her head is so cute."

While over the past 50 years Barbie has worn custom creations from couture designers like Azzedine Alaïa, Burberry, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Prada, Jones says, "Barbie is the most fabulous private client. She came into the salon for her Christmas morning hat and left with five glamorous outfits! Barbie and I have the same design vision; we love tradition, but have an eye for the future."

The five dolls will retail at US department store Selfridges for £250 – about $400 – each. While there's no word on whether or not the dolls will be sold in America, you can guarantee we're a little envious over Barbie's growing designer-filled closet.
