Karlie Kloss Fronts Juicy Couture’s Couture La La Fragrance Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Juicy Couture - Couture La La fragrance ad - Karlie Kloss photographed by Inez & VinoodhIt’s no secret that our forum members are kind of fashion snobs, but many of them were swayed by the ad image for Juicy Couture’s new fragrance, Couture La La. The ad, which features Karlie Kloss photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, shows a windblown Karlie at her best, wearing a frothy, gauzy pink dress and a neck full of jewels that combine to mimic the look of the fragrance’s bottle.

“I love this! Karlie is giving everything!” alonsoJonathan posted. “Really stunning!”

“I love everything about this image,” MyNameIs agreed. “Karlie looks stunning.”

Psylocke posted, “The dress and the perfume bottle are way too kitschy for my taste, but everything else about this is fantastic. Karlie looks amazing.”

The fragrance itself is described as a fruity bouquet with a musky background, but I think the ad image makes me more curious to sample the scent than that description does. This is a great effort from Juicy Couture as far as their ad campaigns go.

Ruth Wilson Pulls Off Dior’s Pants-Dress Combo (Forum Buzz)

Ruth Wilson Pulls Off Dior’s Pants-Dress Combo

English actress Ruth Wilson may have been at a Burberry-associated event (the 58th London Evening Standard Theatre Awards) this past weekend, but she shined in a black and pink Dior couture pants-dress combo. In this ensemble, Ruth proved that there are some people in this world (not Emma Watson) who can make that kind of thing work.

“Amazing in Dior Couture!” LolaSvelt exclaimed.

“And at a Burberry associated event no less? How'd she pull that one off? She looks quite amazing in it, glad she did!” HeatherAnne commented.

Melly5525 called the look “modern, sexy and cool.”

Mint condish remarked that “Ruth is such a badass.” That’s not how you would typically describe a woman in Dior, but I guess in this case it works. Well played, Ruth.

Justin Bieber’s ‘Overhaul’ Appearance

It's not often that we talk about men's clothing and it's even less often that we talk about celebrity men's threads, but fellow Canucks, there is a dangerous fashion felon in our midst and he goes by the name of Justin Bieber.

Over the weekend, Justin Bieber had the honour of meeting the Prime Minister Stephen Harper and received the Diamond Jubilee Medal, which is awarded for "significant contributions and achievements by Canadians." For the special occasion, the Biebs wore what? A suit? A smart blazer/jean combo? His ridiculous MC Hammer pants? No. Justin Bieber went one better, taking fashion cues from Super Mario and wearing a striped pair of blue overalls — with one side deliberately unbuttoned — over a white T-shirt and a backwards baseball cap.

Though his ensemble became the target of bloggers' wrath — Gawker called him a "White Trash Prince" — Justin seemed unfazed by his outfit choice, tweeting a provoking, "I hope you hate my style." And, "Overhauls. LOL." Yes, JB, overhauls are pretty LOL, but why select them for a meeting with the prezzy?

Yesterday, Bieber responded to his critics, particularly Hayley Peterson of the Daily Mail, writing via Instagram:

"The pic of me and the Prime Minister was taken in a room in the arena where I was performing at that day. I walked straight from my meet and greet to him, if you 'Hayley' expect me to have a change of clothes let a loan [sic] a suit at that specific time that’s crazy. It wasn’t like it was like I was going into his environment we were at a hockey arena. Wow am I ever white trash hayley peterson lol."

I'm assuming he was referring to his Grey Cup rehearsal, since he performed at yesterday's half-time game to, may I add, a chorus of boos and heckling from the rowdy football fans. His comeuppance perhaps? What do you think of his "overhaul" appearance (geddit?!)? Do you think his excuse is reasonable or should he have been dragged away from the PM by the scruff of his neck? Some may say his outfit is fashion-forward, but to them I say he should have finished off the look with a slingshot dangling from his back pocket.

Max Doyle Shoots a Polychromatic Julia Nobis for Doingbird #16

If strict deadlines are the bane of creativity, we can give supposedly bi-annual art/culture/fashion publication Doingbird a pass for its lengthy hiatus. For the magazine’s long-awaited 16th issue, publisher, photographer and all-round creative hotshot Max Doyle has shot Julia Nobis as part of a kaleidoscopically coloured editorial also featuring rising Melbourne model Sophie “Hirschy” Hirschfelder.

Both girls strike a dramatic pose in graphic prints, menswear-inspired suits and separates, and heavy metallic accents. Though it’s Julia’s intense yellow hair, patchy pink and violet streaks, and thickly-pencilled brows that’s definitely worth attempting to replicate at home if you happen to be blessed with the bone structure of an unearthly being. 

Doingbird #16 also features a slew of other local and global creative talents including but not limited to Patti Smith, Bruce Webber, Eugene Souleiman, Franz Gertsch, Alasdair McLellan, Didier Malige, Linda Sterling and Rick Owens, and the Benjamin Alexander Huseby-lensed Marte Mei cover is alone worth spending your hard-earned pennies on getting the issue shipped over from Colette. Here’s hoping #17 isn’t too much longer than another six months away.
