Harper’s Bazaar Germany successfully impressed with its fabulous close-up shot of Arizona Muse last month. The magazine now moves swiftly onto its June/July 2015 issue featuring cover model Anna Selezneva— and they’ve created something wonderful once again. The one-time cover girl of French Vogue was captured by Marcus Ohlsson for the occasion and wears a crisp white dress while posing under gorgeous sunlight.
“Perfect cover! So minimal but the pose is so suggestive and the play with the masthead is cute, it’s a very nice balance. I like the contradiction, it is not cheap in any way, it looks expensive but playful and sexy,” credited gazebo.
“Strong and dynamic pose, Anna looks beautiful,” Cosmic Voices raved soon after.
Also showing the cover some love was KateTheGreatest: “It’s a pleasure to see her and she looks so gorgeous. It’s a really gorgeous cover, love it!”
Benn98 agreed, commenting, “Anna looks great, yet another fresh shot from German Harper’s Bazaar. You don’t need top photographers to deliver something classic.”
“It’s beautiful and it’s Bazaar like,” appreciated A.D.C.
Emmanuelle was also quick to share her enthusiasm. “I really like this cover ! The pose, the colors, it’s a great job!” she enthused.
“Anna looks really powerful here. Can’t wait to see the ed,” added Mody in anticipation.

For the collection, Borgo says he looked to vintage crafters and wanted to bring that same semi-DIY feel to the range. “I was inspired by the idea of modernizing the 1960s and 1970s craft culture and empowering people to be creative,” he said in a release. “It’s been exciting to bring the spirit of this collection to life, and I can’t wait to see how Target’s guests make it their own.” On tap are bags, belts, jewelry and more, which you can find in an array of nature scene prints and marble swirls. Add to any of these pieces with the several effects the range has to offer, like geometric and beaded charms or turquoise pyramid studs. Target will also offer an option to create your own letter charms, which you can design at the dedicated website.
Target has tapped Poppy Delevingne to help promote the collection, which is due to hit stores July 12.

Vogue Portugal decided to reprint one of her stories for its June cover and now W Korea taps Gisele Bündchen as its latest cover girl too — but this time in an original photo shoot photographed by Terry Richardson. The current face of Stuart Weitzman looks remarkably youthful in denim overalls and a bikini top. She sports her signature soft tousled waves and a fresh, makeup-free face.
Forum members are left divided, however. “This is really cute! So fresh,” commented nataliaapple hitting us off on a high.
“It’s nice to see something light and fresh from Terry. It’s not his usual contrasted work,” MON admired.
“She looks so young here! I don’t usually care for Terry’s work but I like this,” agreed Peggy Lemming.
TeeVanity shared the same sentiments. “I really like how fresh faced this is, Gisele is so beautiful,” he enthused.
Not everyone was so pleased, however. “I hate that Richardson shot this, Gisele looks boring to me here, the colors of the photos and the styling leave me cold,” Bertrando3 ranted.
“Ugh typical Richardson…hate it. Why isn’t she wearing makeup? She looks old,” slammed gossiping.
GlamorousBoy suggested, “Some make-up would be appropriate.”

It seems like we’ve been waiting an eternity since initially hearing the rumours that Miu Miu was going to release its first-ever fragrance, but now it’s finally been confirmed and a launch date of September has been pencilled in.
As with all of the best launches, we’re slowly being teased with snippets of information. Although we don’t yet know what the fragrance will be called, we can revel in the exciting news that French-English actress Stacy Martin will front the campaign.
For those of you who recognize Stacy’s face, but can’t quite picture exactly where from, she starred in Lars von Trier’s iconic Nymphomaniac films. Plus, she was also featured in Miu Miu’s Fall 2014 campaign shot by photographer Steven Meisel, who she’s set to reunite with for the fragrance shoot.
Miu Miu believes that Stacy’s “artistic rigor” makes her the perfect fit for the brand and after seeing her looking every inch the style icon whilst wearing her favourite Miu Miu to the Met Gala, we couldn’t agree more. We can see exactly why she’s being dubbed “Miu Miu personified.”
Now there’s nothing left to do other than suck up the wait until the fragrance’s official September launch and cross our fingers that we’ll at least be treated to its name beforehand.

She’s not commonly known by her first name, but that’s not going to stop Rihanna from making sure no one else is allowed to use it. Riri’s trying to get a trademark for her first name, Robyn, but DC Comics is absolutely not having it. The comic book company says Rihanna’s name is far too similar to that of Batman’s beloved sidekick Robin and argues that its customers will be confused by the grab, saying it ”is likely to cause dilution by blurring and tarnishing the famous opposer’s mark.”
According to Page Six, Rihanna tried trademarking her name because she wants to use it for an online publication. DC Comics is pulling out all its already-trademarked Robin merchandise to fight Rihanna’s filing.
Rihanna is a pop superstar, but DC Comics is an American institution at this point. Robin and Robyn are spelled differently, so we’re not sure if the name would be all that confusing for DC Comics’ customers and fans, but it’s up to the courts to decide. Still, we’re more interested in the possibility of a Rihanna-owned website. Could the singer be fixing to make her own lifestyle destination à la Gwyneth Paltrow or Reese Witherspoon?
We can only hope!

Liam Hemsworth is the new face of Diesel’s iconic fragrance Only the Brave. It’s a biggie because he’s the first celebrity to be awarded the role, and, because, well, it’s Liam freakin’ Hemsworth. Let the ogling begin.
The 25-year-old The Hunger Games star has offered his good looks and charm to other labels like UK brand Bench in the past, but this will be his first gig in “beau-tay”. He channels a bit of a moto dude for the shoot, which sees him rock a leather jacket, lace-up boots and just the right amount of, what we like to call, Hemsworth stubble.
“The brave one is characterized by his strength, his determination and most of all his ability to live life bravely on his own terms,” Diesel’s Creative Director, Andrea Rosso, said in a statement (via MTV). “I think that Liam embodies these qualities, I am happy to have him representing Only the Brave.”
The black-and-white effect for the shoot only makes him look more dreamy and unattainable, but we can’t wait to see this campaign anywhere an everywhere. Seriously, we hope Diesel has a big advertising budget for this one.
