Male Models in Their Undies Kick Off Western Canada Fashion Week

The Briefing Room

Toronto Fashion Week may have pulled in the celebrities, but Western Canada Fashion Week sure knows how to get our attention. This week, the emerging designer showcase kicked off its fashion hoorah with a show that featured men in socks and undies. Yes, you read that right, and yes, it still counts as fashion. You have our attention Edmonton.

As part of the Whyte Avenue Showcase, local company The Briefing Room (seriously, check out their Facebook page to brighten your Monday morning, you’re welcome) sent muscle-bound models sashaying down the runway in colourful boxer-briefs with fun prints of skulls and pin-up girls. Designed by Robert LeBlanc and Steven Townsend, each pair costs approximately $25 and can be found online, or at the company’s new boutique in Edmonton's trendy Old Strathcona district, where they also stock men’s loungewear, swimwear, socks and skincare. The Edmonton Journal claims the models made the walk as the other designers weren’t quite ready to take the stage, but who needs a main course when the appetizer is so satisfying?

The runway later welcomed between 13 and 20 emerging designers to each show off one outfit as the celebration continued to laud local talent. In case you missed this particular, extra-special showcase, you’ll still be happy to know that Western Canada Fashion Week will be running until April 3. This is the first year that WCFW has attracted international players, so expect further buzz from the likes of Nina AthanasiouKati Metso and Odain Crowther.

Magazine Preview: Kate Moss on UK Vogue and Gaga for Porter’s Second Issue (Forum Buzz)

Everyone loves a good preview, right? Today we're previewing two magazines: The first is the May 2014 cover of UK Vogue. The cover surfaced on Instagram (oh, the plus sides to modern technology) and features Kate Moss wearing a silver fringed jacket, looking over her shoulder whilst the cover shot is taken.



Members of theFashionSpot have taken a liking to the cover with Miss Dalloway kicking off the discussion: "It might be my favorite cover she has done in a long while for them. I love the angle, her face expression, the lack of visible tons of make-up, perfect messy hair, and styling that feels 'natural' for her. Even the text appears minimal. I hope the background pops a bit more in print."

Check out Kate's 34th British Vogue cover here.

Our second preview of the day is Lady Gaga on Porter's second issue, photographed by Dutch duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Gaga is seen in a black and white image, again wearing minimal makeup and natural looking hair.



This cover also received a positive response: "Very down to earth, like it, she looks very nice and normal. No outlandish styling!" wrote Nymphaea.

Mixed Reviews for Iris Strubegger’s Vogue Thailand April Cover (Forum Buzz)

Iris Strubegger is on the cover of Vogue Thailand's April 2014 cover. The Austrian model is photographed by Simon Cave and styled by Morgan Pilcher. Strubegger is also featured inside the magazine, wearing mostly outfits from Ralph Lauren's Spring 2014 collection. You can see those images here.

Personally, I think this cover is a complete knock-off of Suvi Koponen's Vogue Paris cover from March 2013, which you can view here.



"It could have been a much better cover if she would have looked with a more serene or charming expression, here she looks weird," wrote Bertrando3.

Sore was also unsure about Strubegger's expression, writing, "Her facial expression is weird, she looks appalled. Otherwise, it's a gorgeous cover!"

TashaRosa simply commented, "She looks frightened."

"Nice cover…always a pleasure seeing Iris!" commented justaguy, who was clearly more than happy to see Iris Strubegger add another Vogue cover to her portfolio.

Thatsfierce shared the same positive outlook: "Great to see her! She looks gorgeous."

Be sure to have your say regarding Vogue Thailand's latest cover within the thread.

Indian Actress Shraddaha Kapoor Wears Gucci on Vogue India’s April Cover (Forum Buzz)

A pleasant surprise surfaced on the forums earlier today. Vogue India's April issue has 'the country's newest sweetheart,' Shraddah Kapoor on the cover and she's wearing a piece from Gucci's latest collection, designed by Frida Giannini. The Indian actress was photographed by Tejal Patni.

VOGUE India April cover Shraddaha Kapoor wearing a Gucci strappy swimsuit


While this isn't the most groundbreaking of Vogue covers, I do think this is very nice as a whole and I surprisingly like the design of the masthead. The cover has all the right elements (great cover shot, terrific composition and attractive layout), so I've nothing to complain about. I also think it's necessary to applaud a good attempt.

GIVENCHYlover disagreed about the masthead and wrote, "The logo is horrible."

"Erm… I'm not really feeling the top that Shraddha is styled in, doesn't seem particularly 'Vogue' to me. But otherwise, this is a decent Vogue India cover. And I like that they have a travel issue, I'm curious to see what the other editorials are like, hopefully gorgeous!" wrote YoninahAliza, who seemed to be on the fence regarding this particular cover.
