Stars Reportedly Avoiding Paris Couture Fashion Week

Paris Couture Fashion Week is expected to soldier on, even in light of the terror attacks that have plagued the city in recent weeks. But it looks like we may be seeing fewer famous faces at this year’s event. According to Page Six, editors and starlets alike are planning to stay away from the fashion event with security and safety being top of their concerns.

“Security is going to be tough, and with tensions so high, I’d skip,” one anonymous person told Page Six.

Security and RSVPs are always a nightmare, but with terror threats, they’re an even bigger challenge. Add in that many couture clients are from the Middle East and are uncomfortable with being in Paris, and you’ll have smaller shows this season. Couture shows are, after all, for the customer. You know things are bad when you’re having a hard time getting people to fill seats during one of the most exclusive fashion events of the year. 

At the very least, perhaps this means this time around, the week won’t become a Kimye circus.

Natalia Vodianova Replaces Kate Moss in Stella McCartney’s Spring 2015 Ads (Forum Buzz)

Natalia Vodianova is back at Stella McCartney, replacing Kate Moss as the face of the brand. Also replaced are Turkish photographic duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, who’ve shot McCartney’s campaigns for a number of seasons previously. This time around, London-based photographer Harley Weir was ushered in as the British designer’s lensman of choice, delivering a fresh new take on the McCartney label. For the sake of variety, Natalia poses in both the studio and in the great outdoors, while on location in Ibiza.

But what do our forum members think of the change? “I love the shots by the sea!” credited Nepenthes. We were off to a good start!

“The shots by the sea remind me so much of Rineke Dijkstra’s work,” responded mikel.

In agreement, gossiping wrote, “the outdoor ones are great” inside the thread.

Chanelcouture09 was definitely on board: “When I saw the thread title I was thinking ‘Natalia… again?’ but I was pleasantly surprised, I love how fresh and airy it feels, it doesn’t feel saturated. I do love the art direction on the campaign, I like the contrast between the settings.”

Benn98 wasn’t a fan of the shots on location, however: “I don’t like the shots by the sea. She looks like a girl picked from the street, too basic. In fact, it looks Photoshopped. The studio shots however are quite good, and she looks considerably younger.”

Does Natalia look a little too young in the ads, though? Nymphaea thought so: “Yes, she looks very young, a bit awkward but I like it.” 

“I agree, she’s kind of awkward looking in these photos. And those purses are so ugly,” replied Littleathquakes.

Remember how great last year was? Sigh. Image: WENN

Awards season is in full swing and Hollywood’s biggest night — Oscar night — is fast approaching. This morning, directors J.J. Abrams and Alfonso Cuarón joined Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs and actor Chris Pine to announce this year’s nominees. There are few surprises here with favorites like Birdman and The Imitation Game getting quite a few nods, as they have all awards season long. But what was a surprise was the lack of diversity all around. No female directors were nominated, no actors of color. The hashtag #OscarsSoWhite is already trending. Should make for an interesting live tweet during the show.

Below, the list of this year’s nominees. Find out who takes home the prize in every category when the ceremonies air on ABC, February 22 at 7 p.m. Eastern/4 p.m. Pacific.

The Bachelor’s Sam Frost is Selling her $58,000 Engagement Ring

Most of us have moved on from the saga that was The Bachelor Australia, and now Sam Frost wants to as well. Three months after fiancé Blake Garvey left her and ran into the arms of the next blondie in line for his undeserving heart, Louise Pillidge, Sam has decided it’s time to get rid of the $58,000 engagement ring for good.


The bogan Australia grew to love, while she dated the same love rat as 20-plus other women, took to her blog, The Language of Sam, to tell everyone, “It’s time to get this thing out of my life.” (more…)
