Kati Nescher Wears Gucci Spring 2015 on the December Cover of Vogue Germany (Forum Buzz)

It’s not even Christmas and magazines are already showing the Spring 2015 collections. Vogue Germany’s December cover was styled by the magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Christiane Arp, who decided to put cover girl Kati Nescher in a spring dress by Gucci. The model sits perched on a wooden chair, giving a warm smile for the lens of Giampaolo Sgura.

The publication’s efforts haven’t paid off, however, as most of our forum members are not impressed. “Love Kati, don’t love this cover. It’s appropriate for the Holidays, but those colors make it look 90s,” disapproved anlabe32.

GlamorousBoy simply posted the word “catastrophe” inside the thread. Ouch!

“What were they thinking? Everything about this except for Kati is disastrous,” complained Royal-Galliano.

Also not an admirer of the cover was orchidee: “Way too busy. Someone got carried away with the eyebrow pencil. And they really should have picked one color for the (excessive amount of) text.” 

“I don’t understand how one shoots this and thinks it’s a Vogue cover. It looks like a bad catalog shot. Poor Kati,” wrote an unsatisfied Nepenthes.

Discussion soon moved to the abilities of Giampaolo Sgura with Melancholybaby commenting, “Someone take the camera away from this hack.”

“My thoughts exactly. I can’t understand why fashion magazines still hire him,” replied Creative in agreement.

Here’s the Bag North West Painted for Kim Kardashian — and It’s Not a Birkin

Kim Kardashian basically received the most Kanye-ish birthday gift of all time: A very, very expensive Hermes bag painted by her daughter North West. The reality star said hubby Kanye presented her with the carryall, which she initially thought was done by an up-and-coming artist. “And on my computer was this message that said ‘Play,’ and it was a video of my daughter sitting outside painting the purse,” Kim told Us. It’s all very adorable.

Kim was spied carrying the bag yesterday while out and about with hubby Kanye, so we get our first look at North’s artistic flair.

The strangest part about this whole thing is that the bag was originally reported to be a Birkin — but it’s not. Still, some outlets continue to refer to it as such, though the style of Kim’s bag is decidedly different from what a Birkin looks like. (more…)

Giambattista Valli to Release Collection with 7 For All Mankind

Giambattista Valli and 7 For All Mankind are two companies you’d never expect to work together. When you think of Valli, you think of expertly-crafted dresses, elegance and Amal Clooney. With 7 For All Mankind, the “it” brand of the early aughts makes us think of Britney Spears, baby tees and frameless rose-colored sunglasses. But the two are joining forces for a spring collaboration, which will be released in two installments — once in February and again in May.

Melding Valli’s glamorous aesthetic with the accessibility of the denim brand, in addition to jeans, the collection will offer blouses, dresses, jackets, shorts and even a jumpsuit. The range is anchored in its denim pieces: For early spring, expect animal prints and bright red and pink pants. For the second launch, neon and pastel skinnies take center stage with white and blue denim also on tap for the second offering.

Obviously, the best thing about the collection is the price point. Valli’s usually steep prices are brought hurtling back to earth with this offering, starting at $350 and peaking at $650, which is a lot more accessible than his main line which will set you back a couple thou. 

Think you’ll be shopping the collection?

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is less than a month away, but pretty much everyone is already stoked for the lingerie label’s annual spectacle. The show will be presented in London for the first time and, of course, we’re taking notes as details surface. Because we know you can’t get enough of VS or its angels, here is everything we know so far about this year’s show.

1. The show will take place at Earl’s Court Exhibition Centre on December 9

The West London venue is huge. It has hosted the BRIT Awards, the Olympics and holds about 19,000 people. 

2. There is a black tie dress code

Guests at this year’s show will have to come dressed to the nines. Though VS is staging the event in London, WWD says the theme was inspired by Truman Capote’s 1966 Black and White ball, which was held in New York City.

3. The show is divided into six categories

Viewers will be treated to six mini-collections of sorts for this year’s show: Gilded Angels, Exotic Traveler, Dream Girl, Fairy Tale, University of Pink and Angel Ball. (more…)
