For all you girls who have waxed poetic about raiding Victoria Beckham‘s closet, it’s time to put your money where your mouth is! The designer and style crush of just about everyone has announced that she’s putting her wardrobe up for auction, in partnership with The Outnet. Beckham has teamed with the discount luxury e-tailer, donating over 600 items from her enviable closet so that slender fashionistas with deep pockets and a high line of credit can bid on some pieces to benefit mothers2mothers, a charity that helps mothers with HIV. 

There are pieces dating back all the way to her Spice Girls days as well as more recent items that you might remember if you’re a die-hard fan. Up on the block is a checkered Roland Mouret dress Beckham was photographed wearing in 2012, uplifted with oxblood accents like a cropped sweater, belt and oversized croc pouch. Also on tap is a gray, strong-shoulder, striped illusion dress by Alexander McQueen that she sported back in 2006. These might be throwback items for Beckham, but the fact that they’re still completely wearable today is a testament to her timeless style. 

In addition to the items already up for grabs,The Outnet and Beckham have handpicked 10 pieces for a high-stakes Going, Going, Gone sale. The exclusive pieces have been priced by Christie’s and according to The Outnet, will be up for grabs in a sort of “reverse auction.”

So, if you’ve got the coins and the bod to squeeze into one of Beckham’s frocks, you can register to shop the private sale which will run live from August 20 to August 25.

‘At Least It’s Not a Dead Celebrity': Mixed Reviews for Natalia Vodianova’s September Vanity Fair Cover (Forum Buzz)

“Is it September or December?” one might ask upon looking at Vanity Fair‘s latest cover. The image, photographed by Mario Testino, features a mostly nude Natalia Vodianova draped in fur, with the word “Style” emblazoned across the front in red ribbon. The typography invokes a holiday feeling — maybe the mag is saying a partially nude Natalia is like Christmas coming three months early? We can only guess.

Many forum members seemed put off by the amount of Photoshop used on the image. “Boring & lifeless. It looks like it was produced between flights in an airport lounge. And as a big Natalia fan, I’m almost insulted by that poor Photoshop. Testino, why?” wrote Royal-Galliano.

Plenty of folks were just happy to see a model on the cover of an American magazine, a rare sight these days. “At least we have a model on another US September cover and it’s always a pleasure to see Natalia; even though another snapper could have made this sub-par portrait classic! Sad,” wrote Fiercification.

For nightclubbing, the casting choice was a little confusing: “I don’t understand why she’s on the cover but at least it’s not a dead celebrity or a paparazzi shot.”

But not everyone was disappointed by this effort, with testinofan writing in support of the work of his beloved photog, “Loveeed fierce cover!!!!”

HelaFav5 seemed to be feeling the image as well, calling it “Testino’s best work recently.”

And though the ribbon lettering was a problem for some, cottonmouth13 didn’t seem to be bothered by it: “For some reason, I like it. Especially how the word ‘Style’ was written. Although it feels like a winter cover rather than a fall one. But you have Natalia here looking gorgeous. Definitely an unexpected choice and I love that (Praise the good Lord it’s not a dead celebrity).” 

What do you think of the cover? Hurry over to our forums to sound off!

As if Vogue Australia wasn’t knocking it out of the park enough lately, the magazine outdid itself for its big September 2014 cover. The Australian glossy tapped Freja Beha Erichsen, who was exclusively shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin for the magazine’s biggest issue of the year. Donning an outfit from Nicolas Ghesquière‘s debut collection for Louis Vuitton, Freja was styled by Melanie Ward for the beautifully simple cover image.

Naturally, our forum members are ecstatic about Freja’s new cover. “Wow, that’s beautiful! Perfect September cover!” enthused Pyslocke, setting off the mood and kicking off the discussion in the thread.

“Wowww!!! The best Vogue Australia cover! It’s just beautiful! Incredible!” wrote MoniqValentino.

MON shared their sentiments and posted, “Beautiful!!! I love it so much. Laid back yet very gorgeous. Effortless!! And wow, Vogue Australia got Inez and Vinoodh.”

Setting her feelings for Freja aside, tigerrouge admitted the cover was good: “No great fan of Freja, but that’s a beautiful cover.”

“How gorgeous! Love everything about it, and yay for so little text,” wrote Miss Dalloway.

Fiercification was also impressed: “Gorgeous cover…very interesting to see I&V shooting for Vogue Australia and I also love that LV look.”

Kendall Jenner Lands Two Teen Vogue September Covers (Forum Buzz)

Already on the cover of one of LOVE‘s Fall 2014 issues, Kendall Jenner has scored yet another magazine cover. This time around, Teen Vogue tapped the reality star turned model for its September 2014 issue. The magazine released two covers, both photographed by Emma Summerton. On cover one, Kendall is seen wearing a monochrome Gucci dress with embellished shoulder detailing, while on the second, she wears an Emporio Armani jacket teamed with an eye-catching gray hat, also from the Italian fashion house.

Kendall is featured inside the magazine for a series of photos styled by Elin Svahn with the 18-year-old captured against a blue studio backdrop wearing a range of looks from Sportmax, Diesel, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Tommy Hilfiger Collection.

The thread is still in its early days, but the first few comments failed to show much promise. “Lol omg,” simply commented alonsoJonathan, who was clearly mocking Kendall’s presence in the magazine.

“Ugh when will it end . . .” wrote marsnoop2.

Handbag Queen soon replied, “Couldn’t be soon enough! Wish the entire family would disappear for good.”

Although not everyone seemed to be negative toward Kendall’s modeling career. “I wish people would look at her as a model, not just a family member. I think she looks gorgeous in both covers,” xsquared wrote.

Another member showing support was ellastica: “Not bad actually! That dove gray, misty blue background is a nice contrast to that rather obnoxious hot pink text. The flip-flopped images for the two covers is genius. I would’ve ran with that mirror-image effect and flipped the pink corner banner for the first cover to the left corner to sit on top of the ‘teen.’ I prefer the image on the right composition-wise: this wouldn’t be out of step as a UK VOGUE or even US VOGUE cover imo. I would’ve tilted the head/hat for more stylistic/graphic pizzaz to create better eye flow but I’m actually digging this cover!”

H&M to Open a Sydney Store This October, But Not in the City

H&M Sydney Opening

Well, there you have it. Melbourne isn’t the only one to have all the international fashion fun. Finally, H&M has its sights set on Sydney, but it won’t be smack-bang in the city like other big-gun retailers Topshop and Zara. In what seems like an unusual move for such a highly-anticipated store, H&M will set up shop in North Ryde’s newly-renovated Macquarie Shopping Centre.

According to Property Observer, stores like Uniqlo, Zara and Victoria’s Secret are also negotiating leases for this up-and-coming space. With a forecast that Macquarie Business Park will be Australia’s fourth-largest business centre by 2031, we don’t think the location of H&M’s new store will let expected sales figures down.

This will be Australia’s second H&M store, with the first opening in Melbourne’s GPO in April. If the first store is anything to go by, including affordable clothing, cosmetics and homewares in a beautifully structured building, Sydney’s in for a real treat.
