Amber Valletta Takes Us Back to the 90s on Vogue Korea’s September Cover (Forum Buzz)

Fashion magazines have served their fair share of 90s flashbacks this month. From Natasha Poly‘s Vogue Russia cover to Amber Valletta starring on Vogue Korea‘s moody, grungy and nonchalant September 2015 cover. The current face of Anthony Vaccarello was shot by Scott Trindle on location at Coney Island and rocks a little black dress styled by Ye Young Kim. To finish the evident 90s-inspiration off, the iconic supermodel showed off a blunt hairstyle as she commands our attention via Trindle’s lens.

Our forums were left divided over the cover. “My goodness this is depressing: Is this Vogue North Korea? And that’s what this issue resembles in spirit to me. No energy, no excitement, no joy, no fashion statement,” ranted Phuel immediately.

“Looks like something lifted from the 90s, there’s nothing current about this cover. I wish fashion, and in fact pop-culture, would just leave the 90s be!” added Benn98.

Also underwhelmed was Nomar, who disapproved, “Could’ve been executed so much better.”

“I like the image because it gives me ‘Amber in the 90s shot by [Peter] Lindbergh’ vibes but I don’t think it’s cover-worthy,” discredited kokobombon, as a very dim light started to appear at the end of the tunnel.

Nepenthes soon lifted the mood, admiring, “I like it. It feels very classic and laid back.”

In agreement was justaguy. “I actually like the cover too and love that it’s Amber!” he replied.

“I love this cover, super chic! Amber looks great,” raved a very much satisfied Emmanuelle.

What’s your opinion? Are you over being reminded of the 90s? Vent here.

7 Campaign Slogans for Kanye West, AKA the Greatest Presidential Candidate of All Time

Kanye West for president

Last night, while accepting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music Awards, Kanye West dropped a bomb on the audience, announcing that he is planning a presidential run in the year 2020. “I don’t know what I stand to lose after this, it don’t matter though, because it ain’t about me, it’s about new ideas, bro, new ideas. People with ideas, people who believe in truth,” he said during his acceptance speech. “And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.”

Oh yeah, Kanye we totally guessed that you, someone with no previous political experience or demonstrable interest/ knowledge of civics, politics, law or government, would be running for the highest office in the land. But we ain’t mad – it seems a lack of qualifications, a recognizable name and a big mouth is all you need to get people to back your campaign. If Donald Trump and Deez Nuts can run for president, why can’t Kanye West?

Of course, once Kanye gets his presidential vision board on fleek, he’s got to come up with a slogan. The guy has a way with words, so we think he’ll have no problem conjuring a few, but just in case, we’ve got some ideas to help get those creative juices flowing. Not that the greatest presidential candidate of all time will ever need them.

Kanye West: Going H.A.M. for the Middle Class

Our unstable middle class needs a champion who is going to work for them and Kanye West is it. He will not only work hard, but he will work hard as a mothrf****r to make sure America’s middle class is strong again. That’s a promise.

There are few things more important in life for Kanye West than dopeness and we have no doubt the rapper will spread it from sea to shining sea on the campaign trail.

Lara Stone Smolders on W Korea’s September Covers (Forum Buzz)

Whenever a model turns up on the cover of W Korea, the magazine nails it time and time again. Gisele Bündchen bravely went makeup-free a few months back and now Lara Stone vamps it up for September 2015. Shot by dynamic photographic duo Luigi and Iango, the current face of Kurt Geiger stars on two separate covers for the issue, looking fierce and captivating on both. The Dutch beauty can also be found flaunting her figure inside the pages of Korean W, showcasing an array of lace and sheer creations from Valentino‘s Fall 2015 Haute Couture collection.

MON kicked off discussions in our forums by exclaiming, “Perfect!” as soon as both covers surfaced.

“I didn’t realize there was a W Korea. This has definitely caught my attention. I like the closeup the best,” declared Aedlacir, selecting his favorite cover.

“Both covers are good,” fired back TeeVanity, suggesting it’s going to be a tough choice at the newsstand.
