Gal Gadot Announced as the Face of Gucci’s New Bamboo Fragrance (Forum Buzz)

Ever since Alessandro Michele took the helm of Gucci, we’ve witnessed his aesthetic take effect within months of his debut of the Fall 2015 mainline campaign. With the unveiling of Gucci’s latest fragrance campaign, however, we see signs of Frida Giannini‘s sexy, mysterious and sensual Gucci women. Gal Gadot was tapped for Gucci’s newest scent entitled Bamboo. The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice actress got the Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott treatment and appears as sultry as ever before their lens, making for a captivating image.

Gucci Bamboo Fragrance Ad Campaign Gal Gadot by Mert and Marcus


Surprisingly, our forum members weren’t feeling it. “Gal Gadot for Gucci? What’s happening in this world?” asked la veronika right away, about to set the tone of the thread.

“Odd model choice. Wonder Woman, isn’t it? The image looks very stylish and faultless. My one-track mind was hoping for something more tropical and serene, maybe a similar setting to Angelina Jolie’s Louis Vuitton campaign in Cambodia,” noted Benn98.

RedSmokeRise was a little lost for words too, writing, “Honestly this is so random.”

In agreement was MyNameIs: “Very unremarkable. If this were just a random shot in an editorial, it would be fine. But a perfume ad for Gucci? Yeah, no.”

“Her face looks weird. I wish to see anybody else in this campaign,” added a disappointed narcyza.

Kardashian-Jenner fatigue: It’s not a thing, guys. At least not to the FYI network, which will allow us to see a lot more of at least one member of the reality TV clan. Khloe Kardashian just announced that she will be hosting a new talk show, aptly named Kocktails with Khloé. The show is set to air late this year on FYI. For eight one-hour episodes, Khloe will mingle in the kitchen and around the dinner table with some of her famous friends as they drink and chat about their fabulous lives and play party games for our entertainment. It will be like being at a dinner party for famous people that you weren’t invited to, but you can still watch because why wouldn’t you want to watch famous people do things?

“I’m lucky that I’ve been able to invite fans into my life and home on a weekly basis and this show will give me an opportunity to continue to do that with new and exciting guests,” Khloe said in a statement. “Being an executive producer allows me the opportunity to create original content and I can’t wait to show my fans what we have in store on Kocktails with Khloe.”

Khloe announced her new gig on social media, saying she “can’t wait to show you all what we have in store for you on the show.” Khloe’s mother Kris Jenner had a talk show of her own that was cancelled after a single season. But given Khloe’s personality and the fact that she appeals to a younger audience, we have a feeling her program won’t suffer the same fate.

At any rate, will you be watching Khloe’s new show?

Taking over a whole three floors of the gallery, the exhibition is set to be the ultimate feast for the fashionista featuring a plethora of couture as well as Coco Chanel’s Bijoux de Diamants from 1932. Remember the spectacular frosting at the casino-themed couture show earlier this month? Well, that’s the exact jewellery collection you’ll get to see at the exhibition. It was reissued for the occasion and, quite interestingly, it’s also the only fine jewellery that Coco ever created. So, it’s most definitely a must-see if you’re a fan and stuck for something to do one weekend afternoon.

Like all good exhibitions, Mademoiselle Privé is a journey through the brand’s development over the years and in this case, its couture arm. From Coco’s inspiration to how she redefined dressing for women to Karl Lagerfeld’s influential legacy, this is one exhibition that’s got it all. It’s the perfect way to come to terms with the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition coming to a close.

Keds is all about women for Fall 2015 with the launch of its new Ladies First Since 1916 campaign. The shoe brand is taking a feminist slant this season to focus on women’s empowerment and to pay homage to its heritage. “Keds was originally created in 1916 to provide ladies with accessible, fashionable footwear to allow them to be who they wanted to be, and go where they wanted to go,” Keds president Chris Lindner said in a statement.

Witness Taylor Swift’s Total Street Style Transformation This Year

To help promote the Ladies First initiative, Keds is recruiting newly self-identifying feminist Taylor Swift for the campaign. This is not Taylor’s first time working with the brand, having worked on last year’s cat-themed collection to coincide with the release of her 1989 album. “Ladies First is a celebration of amazing women like Taylor Swift who are blazing new trails every day. From CEOing to BFFing, these ladies are doing it all,” Lindner adds.

Keds got female artists in on the action to create backdrops for the campaign, tapping illustrator Priscilla White, surface artist and pattern designer Kendra Dandy, and street artist Paige Smith. 

Check out a few images of Taylor in the slideshow below. (more…)

Miley Cyrus Is Hosting This Year’s VMAs

Images of Miley Cyrus’ latex-clad behind flapping to and fro is one that is seared into the mind of anyone who watched the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. Whether or not it is a memory you cherish or would prefer to forget (in which case, sorry for reminding you) is your business, but you might want to brace yourself if you were planning on watching the VMAs this year. Miley Cyrus is coming back to the awards show, but this time, she’s hosting.


Fuck yeah VMAs!!!!! #VMAs on @MTV Aug 30 at 9pm

A photo posted by Miley Cyrus (@mileycyrus) on

You read that right. Cyrus announced her new gig on social media in a green alien bodysuit with two separate signs, one saying “MTV won’t let me perform” and another “So I’m hosting this year’s VMAs.” The tongue-wagging songstress will unleash her madness on the awards show and knowing Miley, she probably has some kind of stunt up her sleeve, one that we may or may not have wanted to see in the first place. But whatever Ms. Cyrus has in store for us, we’re sure the broadcast is going to be a must-see.

You can view the full list of VMA nominees here. Cyrus will take the stage at the VMAs August 30 at 9 p.m. May she be merciful on our collective ocular system.

Giampaolo Sgura Gets the Blame for Vogue Germany’s Awful August Covers (Forum Buzz)

According to our forums, Vogue Germany has been descending a very slippery slope toward mediocrity. After the mess that was Toni Garrn‘s cover last month, the title moves swiftly on to its August offering, tapping not one, but three models to pose for photographer Giampaolo Sgura. Edita Vilkeviciute, Mica Arganaraz and Constance Jablonski each go solo on the covers, battling it out in the same setting.

You can bet our forum members were less than impressed. “What’s wrong with Vogue Germany this year?” immediately questioned Oxymore.

“It seems that Sgura shot almost all the covers for this year, and it’s very depressing and sad,” burbuja8910 acknowledged.

Also underwhelmed was orchidee: “This could have looked gorgeous, but I think the lighting and the Photoshop make her look demonic. Edita is gorgeous, but Sgura is so overrated.”

As was Benn98, who ranted, “The man simply doesn’t belong at Vogue. InStyle should hostage him with an exclusivity contract because he’s way more effective for them. I can see what they went for here, but the result is so depressing. The shot isn’t cover worthy, layout is a mess, and what’s with the shoe?”

Creative wasn’t having any of it, either. “What a mess. Vogue Germany is going downhill…” he declared.

Vogue Germany needs to stop…” suggested MDNA.
