Claire Danes Outshines Everyone Else on W Magazine’s ‘The New Royals’ Issue (Forum Buzz)

W magazine deserves some recognition for consistently producing visually stimulating covers. The title served up Gigi Hadid for September, gave us Taraji P. Henson for August and now delivers six different personalities for its annual “The New Royals” issue and the covers certainly have us talking. W secured Julianne Moore, Allison Williams, Adam Driver, Claire Danes, Greta Gerwig and Jourdan Dunn, who were each shot by Dutch photographic duo Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.

Fair to say, one cover stood out from the rest. “Claire Danes’ cover is by far the best. Love how sunned and bronzed she looks. That feels very fresh for a fashion magazine cover,” expressed a satisfied dior_couture1245.

“I’m only here for Claire, she looks so good on the cover,” added KateTheGreatest.

In agreement was MON: “Claire Danes’ is by far the best! It’s different from the rest and it looks so natural. Love it.” (more…)

These Celebrities Want You to Tend to Your Lady Garden (for a Good Cause)

What better way to remind women to take care of their lady parts than by making a sweatshirt reminding people that such parts exist? The Gynaecological Cancer Fund launched its first campaign in collaboration with Topshop (just in time for Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month), selling sweatshirts emblazoned with the words “Lady Garden” – an obvious euphemism for your vagina – in order to increase awareness about female cancers.

“Right now these cancers are nicknamed the silent killers,” GCF’s website reads, imploring women to be more diligent in getting their checkups so that they might not fall victim to such diseases. “Recent research done by a leading female cancer charity revealed that nearly a third of women aged 16 to 35 are too embarrassed to go to the doctor with gynaecological concerns – let alone talk to a friend. Apparently 65% of 1000 women feel uncomfortable using the word ‘vagina’. Say WHAT?! We think it’s time to change that. Our mission is to empower women everywhere to talk more openly – without shyness or shame.”

And celebrities are getting on board. Black Score’s Simeon Farrar designed the sweatshirt which has graced the Instagram accounts of Cara and Poppy Delevingne, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Ellie Goulding and more. Naturally, the sweatshirt is almost sold out, but Topshop has a few sizes left over. Hurry over to the website to snag yours and do some good at the same time.  (more…)

Karlie Kloss Serves Supermodel Realness on Vogue China’s October Cover (Forum Buzz)

We made no attempt to hide the fact that Vogue China‘s September cover was tragic, failing to impress with a handful of Chinese celebrities. Now, as the title releases its October edition, we welcome a model with open arms to the front cover. Chinese Vogue tapped none other than Karlie Kloss for its new offering, who is making quite the rounds on magazine covers lately. The current face of Versace was shot by Mario Testino, giving us a perfectly gorgeous image. What more could we want?

The cover, however, left our forum members with mixed reactions. “Nice to see Karlie, and the cover looks OK, although a bit dated. What’s with the big hair? VC should really lay off Testino for a while,” expressed an underwhelmed Benn98 as soon as the cover struck.

“Yikes! The cropping is all sorts of wrong. You wanted big hair but you crop some of it off? I am also not liking the color scheme. Too much nude colors that make the cover look dead. The yellow looks out of place too. Vogue China seriously needs to shake it up. Stray away from Mario and get photographers that will revitalize the magazine,” ranted MON.

“She looks too Photoshopped for my taste. What’s up with VC lately, they aren’t doing so well…” KateTheGreatest stated.

Things started to shape up as anlabe32 declared, “Not bad actually. I quite like how it looks. Powerful but not in your face.”

Miss Dalloway was certainly a fan, writing, “Gorgeous! Just a bit crowded with too much text, but she holds such command in this shot it’s really great.”

“I like it. Classic supermodel cover. Karlie looks beautiful,” admired MyNameIs.

Lisa Hyde’s The Bachelor S3, Ep 14 Low-Down: ‘We Get to Watch Him Squirm’

Sam finally gets to meet the parents, and we get to watch him squirm as the parents and siblings grill him with questions. Last night I went to town on the fashion, but tonight let’s focus on the families and see who has made the biggest impression on Sam.

First up is Heather, who is from Queensland. Right from the beginning Heather has stuck by her word in wanting to build a friendship before moving forward and we have all questioned whether or not that has steered Sam in the wrong direction. I guess she has gotten this far, so she must be doing something right.

Although Heather has been honest and upfront, she still sometimes comes across a little bit of a closed book, so introducing Sam to the people closest to her will really help him figure Heather out that little bit more. As Heather talks about her background and her father, I realise she really is such a strong confident woman. (more…)
