When you’re a supermodel, things aren’t always as peachy keen as they seem. Just ask Gigi Hadid, who took to her social media outlets today to let everyone know that being upheld as the standard of beauty in our society isn’t what it’s all cracked up to be – you still get unwanted haters. Hadid has been affected by negative comments she’s been getting on social media lately, particularly about her body.

“No, I don’t have the same body types as the other models in shows. No, I don’t think I’m the best in any given show. Yes, I have a unique walk but I know I have to improve. No, I’m not the first or last model of my type in this industry,” she wrote. “You can make up all the reasons as to why you think I am where I am, but really, I’m a hard worker, confident in myself, one that came at a time where the fashion industry was ready for change.”

Marion Cotillard Gives Porter Its Best Cover Yet (Forum Buzz)

We were still pretty hung up over Porter‘s fall issue with the ever-gorgeous Daria Werbowy on the front, that is until the title dropped its latest over the weekend. Porter continues to be a forum favorite and since tapping photographer Ryan McGinley to shoot the cover once again, we couldn’t be more thrilled. Throw in French actress Marion Cotillard running through a field of lavender wearing a fresh white Christian Dior dress and Porter has itself yet another home run.

Forum members couldn’t contain their excitement. “It’s so beautiful. Porter is consistently wonderful, it’s really great to see. Marion looks gorgeous, the setting is wonderful, I love the purple; it manages to be winter-appropriate without being too dark and it still feels fresh,” raved LastNight.

“Gorgeous! That simple flowing white dress with the purple lavender is beautiful together and Marion is always a pleasure to see,” responded a thrilled Nymphaea.

Also showing great enthusiasm was MON: “This is gorgeous! Beyond gorgeous even! Wow. Every looks so beautiful. It made Fall look so soft and not too serious. I love it!”

TaylorBinque agreed, declaring, “Truly beautiful cover. I thought it would take them couple issues to top the last one and this is really special. It’s an image that other magazines wouldn’t dare to put on the cover but here it fits perfectly.”

Porter consistently turns out great covers and content. I spend a lot of time at Barnes & Nobles reading them!!” admitted justagyuy.

“This might just be the best fashion magazine out there at the moment. Any news on what’s inside?” asked an eager simon.

Cue the Eye Rolls: James Franco Interviews His Feminine Side for i-D

James Franco is an odd fellow who seems to be very interested in womanhood, whether it’s posing in drag or, in this case, just being weird in general. i-D posted an interview with Franco, in which the actor’s male and female personas have a conversation about male privilege in Hollywood and society at large. 

It’s one of those cases where the privileged tries to show they are aware of their privilege by calling themselves out when really the whole thing is one big annoying navel-gazing experience for an audience who can tell that you’re still pretty clueless. While it’s very nice that Franco is thinking about privilege, we think the “female” character he’s created sounds more like a curated selection of Jezebel comments and not someone who has an actual understanding of the issues women and people of color (mentioned only briefly) face. Perhaps someone should give Franco Matt McGorry‘s number. Read on for some choice quotes from the exhausting, masturbatory exchange.

Victoria Beckham continued her duties as UN International Goodwill Ambassador this weekend at the UN HQ, speaking for the Social Good Summit about the importance of continuing the fight against HIV/AIDS. 

Beckham has been very active in trying to raise funds for women and children affected by the disease. Last year, she put her old clothes up for auction at The Outnet with some of the proceeds going to mothers2mothers, a charity dedicated to keeping HIV-infected mothers from spreading the disease to their children.  (more…)

Dolce & Gabbana Models Took Selfies on the Runway

They say art imitates life and so the adage played out on the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2016 runway. Of course, the design duo’s latest collection was bursting at the seams with heavy-handed Italian flare, embellished accessories, printed scarves and enough ornate headgear to shake a stick at. But this season, the models were armed with cell phones (accessorized with predictably ornate covers) and took selfies as they made their way down the catwalk.

We think the Kardashian-Jenners would most certainly approve. Of course, Dolce & Gabbana posted a few of the straight-from-the-runway selfies to its Instagram feed, and they are as adorable as you’d expect. Peep a few of our faves below.

WATCH: Justin Bieber Demands Some R-E-S-P-E-C-T from His Legion of Aussie Fans

Whether you’re pro-Justin Bieber or not, if you saw him walking down the street, chances are you’d probably ask for a photo with him. Maybe it’s for the claim, the LOLs or the double taps, but, unfortunately for you, the Biebs might not be so willing to jump in your selfie if you don’t treat him the way he feels he so deserves.

After arriving in Melbourne yesterday, September 27, the Canadian pop star got snappy on Snapchat, asking for some R-E-S-P-E-C-T with little-to-no Aretha Franklin sass, but soaring levels of princess, delivering a speech with some mumbo jumbo about honouring the “moment”.

“The way you ask or approach me when you want a photo with me is going determine if I take a photo or not. If I’m walking somewhere or arriving somewhere and you guys are asking me to take a photo, if I don’t respond, if I continue to keep walking, the likelihood is that I probably don’t want to take a photo at that moment,” he explained.
