Isabeli Fontana Sets Pulses Racing on Maxim’s October Cover (Forum Buzz)

We’ve been keeping a very close eye on Maxim magazine since Kate Lanphear took over as editor-in-chief back in 2014. Now settling in nicely to the position a year later, Lanphear has tapped the likes of Candice Swanepoel and Emily DiDonato to front previous issues and now Maxim‘s October edition serves up Isabeli Fontana. Photographed by Gilles Bensimon and giving us all sorts of flashbacks to the 90s, Isabeli makes for one heck of a cover subject.

It’s safe to say we’re head over heels. “Wow, they finally have a classy cover and Isabeli looks super sexy and beautiful here!” raved justaguy.

“I’m really really liking Maxim lately!” confessed MON right after.

Also full of praise was marsnoop2, crediting, “Maxim is absolutely incredible nowadays. The EIC took a crappy men’s magazine (although I admit I liked some of their early 2000s work) and just gave it a whole new life and the imagery they produce rivals a lot of top fashion magazines.”

“Such a nice shot, glad to see Gilles continue to work for this magazine!” Benn98 added.

AlonsoJonathan was quick to share his enthusiasm too: “What a stunning image of Isabeli. She looks GORGEOUS!”

“The only thing I dislike about Isabeli nowadays is how incredibly fake her fake boobs look. I expected them to be front and center on the cover when I first opened this thread. Glad to see the that’s not really the case, and that the styling is actually very natural, pretty and classy. The editorial is great, too. Probably the best she’s looked since 2003!” declared Psylocke.

The Business of Fashion has released its list of the 500 most influential people in the industry. Of course, there are the names you would expect to see: Anna Wintour, Cara Delevingne, Alexander Wang, Alber Elbaz, Carine Roitfeld, etc, but this year some new additions made the list, most notably Caitlyn Jenner.

BoF added the transgender activist for her status as a budding fashion icon, noting that since making her debut on the cover of Vanity Fairshe’s become a big draw for designers who are keen to get her in their duds. “Jenner’s fairy tale transformation also fits with fashion’s central narrative — she is the perfect model to show how you can truly express your identity through clothes,” BoF writes. “No doubt by the next New York Fashion Week, Caitlyn Jenner will be a front row regular.” (more…)

Sorry Mattel, you lose. Properly proportioned fashion doll Lammily gets her period now, something Barbie’s freakish figure would never recieve without suitable room for a uterus. 

Already loved for her curves and optional acne and stretch marks, the educated folk over at Lammily just introduced a “Period Party Pack”, which includes an information pamphlet, panties, uh, “reusable” pads and liners, and a calendar with dot stickers. (more…)

By now we’re all well aware that Australia’s first-ever The Bachelorette will include an “international model” who makes Sam Frost burst into laughter thanks to his blue steel.

We thought he looked familiar, and not just in the Leonardo DiCaprio mixed with Taylor Hanson circa-2003 way. The man in question, David Witko, has appeared in a number of fashion campaigns both in Australia and abroad, so you’ve probably pined over him well before the first The Bachelorette trailers were released.

Make sure you check out all the shoots he’s been in and the runways he has walked, in our gallery below. We’re not betting that he’ll win Sam’s damaged heart, thanks to his questionable conversational skills that we’ve seen so far, but we think he’ll make for solid entertainment. (more…)

BFFs Nastya Sten and Sasha Luss pose together wearing Fendi for an effortlessly beautiful cover image by photographer Txema Yeste.

Make no mistake, our forum members were impressed. “This is beautiful! Of course I love the Fendi Haute Fourrure outfits. Is October the new September?” asked a more than content gazebo.

“This is EVERYTHING! Love these girlfriends. I love the simplicity and graphic vibe of the cover,” admired lakomka.

Also full of admiration and gratitude was Benn98: “Finally something fresh from Vogue Russia. So glad for Nastya, but they both look stunning here. Txema Yeste did a good job!”

Khyrk was quick to voice his praise too, echoing, “LOVE IT! Love how Vogue Russia has maintained their high from their September cover. Love this!”

“Dear LORD, I’m speechless. Love that cover!!” declared a satisfied catherine88.

Sharing the same positive attitude was MON. “Oh my goodness! Even Vogue Russia delivered!! Yes! This is the Vogue Russia that I love! Is it me or does this have the old VR vibe (from the layout to the image). Yes! I hope they stick with this direction! October is the gift that keeps on giving!” he praised.
