When news of terrorist attacks in Paris broke earlier this month, the last thing on anyone’s mind was stocking up their wardrobes. But apparently we should have made our fashion choices a “priority” in the midst of Paris’ deadliest attack since World War II, with one man thinking it’s OK to call out ABC news reporter Lisa Millar for wearing a jacket more than once.

Twitter user and noted troll Stephen Blackman suggested that Lisa should fit in a trip to David Jones, commenting that she has been wearing “The same jacket…report after report” during her coverage of the Paris attacks. (more…)

Matt Okine used his acceptance speech at the 2015 ARIAs to talk about gender inequality at the awards ceremony, however, it didn’t make it to air on last night’s broadcast.

“I’d feel bad if I didn’t make a point of something that I feel a little bit weird about,” the Triple J co-host said after beating out four other male contenders for the Best Comedy Release win. “I don’t think there were any women at all nominated in the comedy category just then. I don’t think there are any women who are featured artists on tonight’s show, even.” (more…)

Irina Shayk Tones Down the Sexiness on Harper’s Bazaar Spain (Forum Buzz)

Irina Shayk hasn’t exactly given us many memorable magazine covers lately (starring on a few Vogue Spain covers here and there). But now another Spanish title tries its hand at shooting the Russian beauty with Harper’s Bazaar Spain handing her the cover of its December edition. The newly announced ambassador for L’Oréal Paris tones it down on the very front cover, gazing down the lens of Norman Jean Roy. Photographed in a dark studio, Irina models a Dolce & Gabbana piece teamed with a Valentino coat draped over the top and you’ll either love it or hate it.

Members of our forums were left divided regarding their opinions toward the cover. “She looks good but I’m bored by her modeling skills (always sexy and seductive). I’ve never seen her do something elegant,” complained DutchHomme.

“Probably because she isn’t elegant. It seems as though they tried, but obviously failed, here. Looks more like Adriana Lima to me, and I’m not sure whether that’s good or bad,” replied a disapproving Benn98. (more…)

Alessandra Ambrosio Bares All on Maxim’s Hot New Cover (Forum Buzz)

With the news of Kate Lanphear‘s sudden departure from Maxim, the magazine shows no signs of giving up the good stuff, bestowing upon us a sultry and seductive December/January cover featuring Alessandra Ambrosio. Our forums usually depend on racy French publication Lui for something daring and provocative, but Maxim certainly delivered with this particular cover photo, lensed by Gilles Bensimon. The team took to the luxurious surroundings of Monte Carlo for the shoot with Alessandra captured wearing nothing but a diamond necklace, catching some rays while looking every inch the Brazilian bombshell.

“I find this extremely tacky, which is a shame cause Maxim was doing so good,” voiced kokobombon the moment the cover struck, unwilling to get us off to a positive start.

“Yikes, have I stumbled onto Playboy??? She looks like a 90s porn star on the cover. I think she’s got a stunning body, but the face, well, let’s just say she’s no oil painting. Not even the old Maxim would dare this,” added an uninterested Benn98. (more…)

Rooney Mara Covers ELLE’s January Issue and She’s Never Looked Better (Forum Buzz)

Our forums are always on the ball and just before the weekend, we took an exclusive peek at ELLEs January issue. The publication started off the new year on a positive and healthy note by tapping Rooney Mara as its brand new cover subject, shot by Cedric Buchet. Making for a refreshing photographer of choice for ELLE, Buchet captured the actress wearing Louis Vuitton and, quite frankly, it’s the best we’ve ever seen her.

Members of our forums fell head over heels for the cover. “Really love this cover. Strong colors, Rooney looks like herself, not dolled up and Photoshopped into oblivion,” applauded KINGofVERSAILLES.

“I’m loving this cover. It looks like one of their covers from the early 00s where they would have a slightly boho but sophisticated look to them. I remember some great ones with Erin Wasson, Kidman, and Blanchett,” pointed out A.D.C. (more…)
