Kim Kardashian Had No Idea Kanye Wanted to Run for President, Can’t Wait to Redecorate the White House

We were all surprised when Kanye West announced at the VMAs that he was planning to run for president, but probably none so surprised as Kim Kardashian, who says she was caught off guard by her husband’s newfound political aspirations – and we would think she would have known about them before because hello, she’s married to the guy.

“That was news to me. It was not a discussion in our household,” she said on the Ellen show. Though she had no idea her husband was going to up and try to run for office, like a good wife she is backing his new goals. And why wouldn’t she? Becoming the FLOTUS would make Kim Kardashian even more famous than she already is, and we know the Kardashian-Jenner machine is a slave to any prospect of increased overexposure. (more…)

Charlize Theron Nails Business-Chic in Zimmermann for the 2015 Good Summit

The 2015 Social Good Summit went down on Monday, September 28, at New York’s 92Y, and Charlize Theron totally looked the part with a balance of flowing femininity and structured sophistication.

The actress opted for Australian label Zimmermann’s midi dress in watercolour pastels, finished off with a contrasting black blazer. Normally we would feel like the black blazer was too harsh against the dreamy colours of the dress, but the matched Aquazzura strappy shoes gave it relevance in the outfit.

Plus, the addition of the structured jacket instantly made this summery dress event-appropriate, and has inspired us to carry around a blazer everywhere we go to give any look the workwear appeal it might need.

WATCH: Lorde Is Not Your Usual Jilted Mistress in Her New Vengeful Music Video

Bow down to your Lorde, because she has just highlighted a very important issue in her new music video “Magnets” with Disclosure.

The New Zealand-born songstress steps outside of her comfort zone for the clip, getting steamy as all hell with an already-taken man, Iddo Goldberg (who you might remember as BFF Ben from Secret Diary of a Call Girl), before setting him on fire in a pool of gasoline.

After watching the clip for the first time, questions were raised about why Lorde’s character felt the need to kill a man she was “getting along” with so well in the living room, the walk-in wardrobe and essentially any wall they could find to do the deed against.

But Lorde has made it very clear that this is not your typical mistress scenario, and that she’s actually playing a “hitgirl who pretends to seduce then burns alive douchey boyfriends.”

According to the singer,  the very crucial blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment of the entire video is a shot of the girlfriend’s black eye when she’s by the window, with Lorde asking us to “watch with that moment in mind.” 

stepped outside myself and played an interesting character for the MAGNETS video! **the most important detail is the…

Posted by Lorde on Tuesday, 29 September 2015

She explained on Facebook, “That’s the point the whole video hinges on / takes it from being ‘an affair narrative’ to being ‘shitty domestic abuser dude’s girlfriend hired miss ella the hit girl to ‘seduce’ him then take him the FUCK out’.[sic]”

Watch “miss ella the hit girl” in action, above.

Willow Smith Just Nabbed a Modeling Contract

Willow Smith is killing it. The 14-year-old daughter of Will Smith and Jada-Pinkett Smith has been making waves, landing a campaign with Marc Jacobs and the cover of i-D‘s Coming of Age issue. Now, the young Smith can call herself a bonafide model, now that she’s signed on with The Society Management, aka the same agency that reps Kendall Jenner.

This morning, The Society tweeted out that Smith is the newest addition to its roster, along with an image of one of the stunning i-D covers she just did. And Kendall isn’t the only big name Smith will share a face board with. The Society lists Andreja Pejic, Adriana Lima, Caroline Trentini and Liu Wen (to name a few) on its impressive women’s board.

Meanwhile, Smith is over here on Instagram taking pictures of her friend’s tattoo, as one does when they’re signed to a major modeling agency. You just keep being you Ms. Smith.

Gigi Hadid Lands ELLE Canada’s November 2015 Cover (Forum Buzz)

Got to give credit where credit is due and ELLE Canada certainly deserves a congratulating pat on the back after tapping supermodel Cindy Crawford last month. The mag just dropped its November cover featuring model-of-the-moment Gigi Hadid, shot by Max Abadian. Fashion Director Juliana Schiavinatto selected a custom Mikhael Kale #GIGI top for the brand ambassador of Maybelline to wear, but the question remains: Can Instamodels ever compare to a good old-fashioned supermodel?

“The finger pointing. No. This coming after Cindy’s epic supermodel cover,” stated a disapproving A.D.C.

Sharing the same sentiments was KissMiss: “WOW! After Cindy’s cover we get this? She can be very striking, just a shame they went with such a cheap concept and look.”

Forum member Benn98 wasn’t exactly showing much enthusiasm toward the cover, either, adding, “‘Future looks bright’ indeed. That’s all there is to this cover. They’ve really gone a bit overboard with the retouching, her skin looks almost plastic-like.”

Also not having any of it was justaguy, replying: “Exactly! And I’m not diggin’ the styling either.”

“A little bit more lighting and Gigi would have been gone,” said Nymphaea.
