Best or Worst Cover of 2015? Rooney Mara Stars on Interview’s November Issue (Forum Buzz)

Last month, Interview magazine successfully managed to gain our attention with its jaw-dropping Nicole Kidman cover. Now moving on to the release of the November 2015 edition and continuing with the black and white cover shots, Rooney Mara becomes the title’s new cover subject. The Carol and Pan actress meanders the streets of London wearing Prada with photographer Peter Lindbergh in the visually stimulating portrait that has our forums in a pickle.

Members of our forums quickly jumped into a debate. “Their best cover in a while…There’s a strength to the image despite it veering towards predictable Lindbergh fare, and I think a lot of it has to do with what she’s wearing,” admired Fiercification.

“Only a fantastic face like Rooney’s can pull off a raw cover shot like that,” added Marc10.

Sharing the same attitude toward the cover was MON: “I am really liking the soft direction that Interview is taking recently. So much better than their Klein features. Very raw. Very vulnerable. Focus on the beauty. Yes.”

Nomar was a fan, too, writing, “What a gorgeous cover.”

Not all of us were feeling it, though. “Horrible!! Possibly the worst cover I have seen from Interview, ever!” declared Miss Dalloway.

In agreement of how horrific the cover turned out was mepps. “This is their worst cover all year, and possibly last year. The pictures aren’t bad, but they are as dull and lifeless as Rooney Mara always is,” he replied.

“This girl has absolutely no expression in her face,” pointed out an underwhelmed honeycombchild.

Eek! Take a peek at Rooney’s cover story to solidify your own opinion and drop us a comment here.

Jessica Mauboy pulled out of singing the national anthem for the Melbourne Cup yesterday at the last minute, quite literally, with Nadia Aya taking the stage just 30 seconds before Jessica was supposed to.

Even though the “Burn” crooner  was introduced to the stage by announcers at Flemington Racecourse, replacement Nadia stepped in to sing “Advance Australia Fair” as Jessica faced issues with “clothing and preparation”, according to her representative. 

In the worst kind of morning after for Jessica, 2GB radio king Alan Jones suggested that the 26-year-old Australian Idol alum refused to wear shoes supplied by Myer, the official race sponsor. (more…)

Rebel Wilson has put her inability to walk in high heels to good use on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, taking on an entire obstacle course in under 60 seconds all while wearing a pair of sky-high shoes.

“There’s a lot of things I’m not good at — running, making healthy choices at restaurants — but the worst thing is walking in high heels. I cannot do it,” the 35-year-old Aussie actress revealed.

Naturally she was put to the test by Ellen and asked to climb, dart and dribble like she was in primary school all over again, only this time she was asked to spin around for some appropriate dizziness first, do the whole thing with a martini in her hand, and wear some epic heels, of course. Don’t worry, she had a Footlocker staff member/coach alongside her to make sure she was safe.

As expected, Rebel did the whole thing in hilarious fashion. For someone who claims she “cannot” do high heels bigger than the kitten style she was wearing, we’d say the Torrid designer did a pretty phenom job. (more…)
