We Blame Photoshop for Blanca Padilla’s Harsh First Vogue Cover (Forum Buzz)

You probably won’t believe us when we tell you that this is the first time in nine years that a Spanish model has covered Vogue Spain. We guess it’s better late than never, right? Blanca Padilla stars exclusively on the magazine’s February 2015 cover. Photographed by Matt Irwin, who is renowned for his stark and vibrant photographic style, the current face of Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2015 advertising campaign was captured wearing a leather coat as she makes her way down a street on location in Milan.

Unfortunately, Vogue Spain’s bold new cover completely misses the mark. “Cool points for trying different things in [the] New Year, bold and unexpected cover image to be published! So it’s a shame just how much they felt they had to airbrush her face, it loses the effect because she looks like a mannequin!” wrote Miss Dalloway.

“Ugh, yes, this kills me. Thrilled to see, but Vogue Spain is so commercial and goofy these days. Would have much preferred seeing her natural beauty, in a more high-fashion setting,” HeatherAnne responded.

Oxymore shared the same feelings: “I was so exited to see Blanca but I don’t like it at all. Too much everything. They could have done something much better with her…”

“Yeah, the cover is a total eyesore. As you said, too much of everything. I don’t know where to look at. The word ‘Pasión’ is beyond big and the two-color masthead looks tacky. With her amazing beauty it’s a shame they went for a cover like that. A beautiful studio portrait would have done wonders,” suggested Creative.

Also left unimpressed with the magazine’s efforts this month was KateTheGreatest: “Looks like they tried too hard. I am happy for Blanca but I wish she would’ve looked more natural. Although I blame retouching for that.”

Do you think Vogue Spain tried too hard with Blanca? Is the cover over-retouched? Share your opinion with us here.

Kendall Jenner Is WSJ’s Expert on Youth

Kendall Jenner: Reality star, model, face of Estée Lauder and now, journalist. The 19-year-old member and rising star of the Kardashian-Jenner clan has been tapped by The Wall Street Journal to weigh in on a topic we can safely say she knows a lot about — youth.

The short column, penned by the young star (or perhaps a ghostwriter — you never know with the rich and famous), talks about growing up quickly in a house full of adults, giving her the perfect opportunity to remind people that she has famous sisters. “My sister Khloé always says to me and my younger sister, Kylie: You have your whole life to be an adult but only so long to be a kid. And we get it. In the right situations, I try to be as immature as I can sometimes—react to things as if I were 12. You can’t take things too seriously.” 

Sound advice from The Wall Street Journal columnist.

Mick Jagger Starts L’Wren Scott Scholarship Fund

To honor his late partner L’Wren Scott, Mick Jagger is setting up a scholarship fund at Central Saint Martins. One student per year will benefit from the three-year long scholarship, which will cover two years of tuition as well as living expenses. The fund will support students enrolled in the school’s MA fashion program.

Scott’s suicide last March came as a huge shock to the fashion community. The designer was found in her New York City apartment, having ended her life at just 49 years old. We don’t know how much the scholarship is worth, but CSM’s MA Course Director Fabio Piras called it “extremely generous.”

The scholarship will go to one talented CSM student starting October 2015.

Steven Meisel Photographs His Favorite Models for Coach’s Cool New Campaign

Fashion advertising concepts come and go, but Coach is sticking to its guns for these new Spring 2015 spots. Last season’s ads were pretty similar, photographed by Steven Meisel and his team consisting of Karl Templer on styling duties, Pat McGrath on makeup and Guido Palau on hair. Coach’s newly released ads continue to ooze a freshness the brand is striving for after changing up its aesthetic due to a dip in sales. We’re pretty certain Coach is taking a step in the right direction.

Meisel brought back a handful of girls from last season (Lexi Boling and Binx Walton) and invited newcomers Molly Bair, Grace Hartzel, Valery Kaufman, Julia Bergshoeff, Dylan Xue and male model Helge Vondereau. Art director Fabien Baron layered Meisel’s photos over the New York skyline, personifying the newly revamped Coach label. Some detailed shots of Coach’s new leather goods are added to the ads, giving customers a clear view of the accessories. The New York-based fashion company is certainly onto something here and we cannot wait to see what’s next.

Julianne Hough Sports Classic Monochrome in Camilla and Marc

Julianne Hough stepped out on January 15 to judge a dancing competition held by Gillette Venus and Dance On at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in New York, sporting a salsa-appropriate frock by Camilla and Marc.

The actress and Dancing with the Stars judge opted for a black-and-white two-tone piece from the Australian label’s Spring 2014 collection, featuring a fitted bodice with an asymmetrical skirt draping from the mid-thigh.

The outfit was classic and strictly monochromatic with black patent heels, and accessorising was kept to a minimum with just a few fine-gold rings. You might remember the divine Emmy Rossum rocking the same dress, styled differently with matching earrings and strappy shoes instead.
