Kate Upton Looks Spectacular the Cover of Vogue Brazil July 2013

Everything in fashion is a matter of opinion, but Kate Upton's fourth Vogue cover, for the Brazilian edition's July 2013 issue, is surely her best yet. 

The cover above appeared in the tFS Forums as a snapshot preview yesterday afternoon; shortly after, Vogue Brazil posted an authorized version to their website. Upton was photographed by Henrique Gendre and styled in Miu Miu by Luis Fiod.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover girl has previously appeared on the cover of Vogue's American, British and Italian editions. Though her trajectory from men's magazine model to fashion darling has attracted a number of detractors (the "bombshell" look can be unpopular among many model junkies, who tend to prefer the more unusual beauty of runway models), her consistently strong editorial work is making it increasingly difficult to dismiss her.

Boohoo Calling Canada with Affordable UK Fashion

Remember a few weeks ago when I posted a story about retailers that ship to Canada (for free or cheap)? No? Well go here a moment to read it… You're back? Good. Because I now have another fashion focused website to add to that list: Boohoo.

Originating across the pond, Boohoo showcases trend-led and affordable fashions taken directly from the streets and runways in the UK and made available for purchase within a matter of weeks internationally. They've now launched in Canada and, to get the party started, invited media fashionistas to preview the collection at a pretty in pink soiree.

Boohoo Canada Launch

Since summer is officially upon us, I was particularly interested in the Pure White collection, which is all about light and whimsical fabrics and styles helping shoppers get that perfect summer weekend-away look at an unbeatable price. The May Pocket High Rise Short, the Eden Mesh Detailed Neck & Hem Top and the Louise Tie Low V-Back Netted Prom Dress. All of these items retail for less than $50, but in case you're looking for something with that little added je ne sais quoi, the Boohoo Boutique is an exclusive, limited-edition line that when it's gone, it's really gone.

But aside from the clothing, do you know what the best part of the event was? I got to grill the Boohoo sales and marketing team on their shipping and customs costs to Canada. Here's what I learned: As of July 1 there will be free shipping and no duty taxes on all orders over $25 to Canada. This is because, as I was told, the company is willing to take the hit and leverage the loss against other destinations (like Australia). I'm patriotically convelling for both Britain and good ol' Down Under right now!

Selfridges Denim Lover Launch

British department store Selfridges is always at the forefront of the most creative fashion campaigns, so when it came to the launch of its new denim collection, they just knew that they had to do something innovative that had never been done before.

Selfridges decided to go beyond the photograph and opened up its studio’s doors to three hundred people all with their own cameras. As the models, which included one of the most sought-after models of the moment, Jourdan Dunn, showcased the finest of the collection’s denim pieces, the crowd snapped away. The end result? A mosaic inspired picture comprised of the crowd’s shots. Well done Selfridges for creating the world’s first ever co-created denim campaign.

Selfridges Denim Campaign

Selfridges believes that denim represents democracy in fashion, it always looks stylish and never goes out of fashion but in order to spice up its denim offerings for this season, Selfridges got some of the world’s leading designers on board, which includes Stella McCartney, Richard Nicoll and Alexander McQueen. The designers have chosen some of their own signature pieces and reinvented them in denim to form the Denim Lovers collection. Plus, it’s not just apparel that’s being transformed, as it also includes homeware and accessories.

Stella McCartney has chosen to make over her own Falabella shoulder bag in denim, £695, whilst Roland Mouret has transformed his Contrast strap dress, £995. Collaborations like these just make denim all the more cool to wear.

You can check out the end result of their denim campaign or even shop the collection on Selfridges’ site.

Here’s Karlie Kloss on the Cover of Vogue Thailand’s July 2013 Music Issue [Updated]

We expected to have to wait a couple more days to see Vogue Thailand's July 2013 Music Issue cover featuring Karlie Kloss, but happily enough, we've received it ahead of schedule. Here it is! Kloss might not seem like the most obvious candidate to cover a music issue, but she was recently spotted shooting on the streets of New York with Daft Punk (the styling of that shoot does not appear to resemble the Vogue Thailand cover or what we've seen of the editorial, which were photographed by David Bellemere in New York City).

[Update, 6/27: The publication confirms that Kloss is wearing Ralph Lauren and says that the Daft Punk shoot is not related to Vogue Thailand's issue.]

This week, we're delighted to have the lovely Bar Paly as our first-ever guest Instagrammer. The Russian-born Israeli model is sensational-looking, duh, but she also happens to be very sweet, with a chic, playful sense of style. And her hair is so perfect, I think I should just give up and shave mine off. 

For Paly, this has been a banner year: the model appeared in the Roman Coppola film A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, alongside Jason SchwartzmanBill Murray and Patricia Arquette; she had a role in the Michael Bay blockbuster Pain & Gain, which stars Mark Wahlberg and The Rock; finally, she's in the forthcoming Non-Stop, with Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore.

She's a busy lady! So, keep up with her on the tFS Instagram this week at @theFashionSpotOfficial. 

(And don't forget to follow her personal account @BarPaly, because on the Internet, love means never letting go.)
