TOMS Supports World Sight Day on October 9

 

TOMS landscape

We love the TOMS for its cute and comfy slip-on shoes that have an altruistic slant. And with the launch of a sunglasses collection in 2011 and optical frames in 2014, founder Blake Mycoskie took his business model of one for one (one item purchased equals one item donated to someone in need) and applied it to eyewear. On World Sight Day this October 9, TOMS is encouraging Canadians to take to social media to raise awareness about visual impairment and blindness.

By taking pictures of the sights and views they’re grateful for every day and uploading them to social media with the hashtags #GiveSight and #TOMSCanada, Canadians can help shed light on visual impairment. It’s estimated that 80 percent of visual problems worldwide can be cured or prevented; to date, TOMS has provided eyewear to over 200,000 people in 13 countries around the world.

“I am so happy that we can help to cure and prevent visual impairment for so many people around the world thanks to our wonderful and supportive TOMS customers,” Mycoskie said in a statement.

The TOMS sunglasses and optical collections are available at select retailers across Canada and at TOMS.ca.

Dianna Agron Shares Topless Photo from Latest Photoshoot

It’s Dianna Agron like you’ve never seen her before. Yesterday, the actress tweeted an image from a photoshoot she recently did with LA-based photographer Brian Bowen Smith.

For the shot Agron is rocking a platinum slickback (courtesy of hairstylist Christian Wood) and little else. She’s topless in the image, to which she added a black bar to preserve her modesty. Her tattoo, which appears to be a man pointing a gun at a girl, is on full display in the arresting image.

While it’s unclear exactly what this shoot is for, one thing’s for sure: Agron looks fantastic. Hopefully there will be more shoots like this to come for the Glee actress!

Vogue Mexico Celebrates 15th Anniversary Issue with Multiple Covers (Forum Buzz)

Celebrations seem to be everywhere as Vogue Japan marks its 15th anniversary with Miranda Kerr on the cover and now Vogue Mexico celebrates its own 15-year milestone, producing a selection of covers for a commemorative issue. The magazine exclusively tapped Alexi Lubomirski to photograph models Karen Elson, Cameron Russell, Irina Shayk, Guinevere Van Seenus and Frankie Rayder donning show-stopping pieces for each of the cover shots.

It is unconfirmed if each of the five girls has official newsstand-available covers or if some are on a fold-out, but that doesn’t stop our forum members from choosing their favorite cover image.

“I’m quite impressed by Vogue Mexico at least cover wise. I don’t know if they’ve always produced quality covers and judging by the fact it’s their 15th anniversary, they’ve been around a while, but if they can produce quality covers that uphold the Vogue name there’s no reason why a lot of the new smaller Vogues shouldn’t be pulling off the same,” complimented A.D.C., praising the magazine for its efforts this month.

Nepenthes shared his favorites: “Karen’s cover is easily the best. She looks like a trillion bucks! Guinevere also nailed it!”

“Karen looks so glamorous!” agreed ash92.

As more covers started to surface inside the thread, tigerrouge‘s favorite changed: “I thought Cameron looked good on the cover… that was before I saw Karen.”

Also in the same predicament was justaguy, who wrote, “As much as I loved Cameron’s shot when I first saw it, there’s just something about Karen’s cover that really sets this one apart from the rest.”

Irina’s appeared to fall short with forum members with marsnoop2 commenting, “Poor Irina. Karen/Cameron/Guinevere are just crushing these covers.”

“Oh no, Irina’s one is terrible! How can they think that this is a good cover?” questioned an underwhelmed Oxymore.

Which is your favorite? See inside the thread for the rest of the covers and check out a few previews of the issue. Share your opinion here.

How to Walk in Heels, Courtesy of Cara Delevingne

Sky-scraping heels aren’t the easiest to walk in at the best of times. Now, imagine being a model and having to perform a perfect walk in front of quite possibly the most judging type of crowd around. Trips and slips do happen and can be embarrassing when you’re walking down the most famous runways in the world.

Admitting that you’re a girl who can’t really walk in heels isn’t easy. Cara Delevingne confessed to W Magazine that “it took me so long to learn to walk in high heels it was a joke.” So, what’s the trick to mastering the perfect modelesque high heel walk? Cara revealed that her secret is to “walk like you’re having sex and like you’ve had loads of sex.”

To be honest, it’s not a tip that we entirely understand, but it’s something that we’ll try to bear in mind on Saturday nights as we don our heels for the evening.

Bill Gaytten Opens Up About Galliano’s Departure

Bill Gaytten had quite a lot to deal with in 2011 when John Galliano was fired from his post at Christian Dior and his namesake label. Gaytten, who was second in command at both houses at the time, was left to carry on without Galliano’s trademark flamboyant flair and romantic aesthetic. His first couture collection post-Galliano at Dior was met with scathing reviews. It was clear that the house needed some new leadership to take it into a new era. After Raf Simons was appointed as creative director of Dior, Gaytten had a lighter workload and more time to focus on John Galliano, where he sits at the helm today.

Transitioning into a post-Galliano era, however, wasn’t easy for Gaytten, who told the The New York Times that his life is “a lot better than it was two years ago” when Galliano was first fired. “That was a very difficult year, year and a half. Just didn’t see it coming. With hindsight — surprise, surprise,” he said. “I’m not doing self-pity, because I don’t, but it was a very difficult situation for me. Just to be sort of shoved suddenly — the curtains open and someone pushes you out like a petrified rabbit in the headlights.”

Rumors surrounding Galliano’s return to fashion have been circulating as of late and it seems like the fashion world is ready to welcome the disgraced designer back into the fold. We’re not sure if he would ever make a case to take the reins back at his namesake label, but at the moment, it seems Gaytten is content with executing his vision at Galliano.

Refreshing Resort: Gucci Taps Fresh Faces for Latest Ad Campaign (Forum Buzz)

The Fall 2014 campaigns may still be fresh in our minds, but the ads for the Resort 2015 collections are now starting to roll out. Gucci‘s campaign is the first, as the brand released its full Resort campaign via Facebook, and to our amazement, we are impressed! Sticking with photographic duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott to lens the images, Gucci switched up the cast this time around by tapping a handful of fresh new faces to showcase its latest collection. The new Gucci girls include Alisa Ahmann, Aneta Pajak, Julia Bergshoeff and Julia Banas, who all pose in a dark lit studio wearing tropical-inspired pieces and clutching luxurious leather goods.

Members of our forums just cannot stop expressing who their favorite is. “Happy for Alisa! She deserves it. Hopefully it is the right remedy for her messed up S/S runway season. The styling on the other hand is not so classy,” commented VERNIQUE.

“Alisa and Julia B are killer in this campaign. Alisa is so magical in print,” shared jacquelineo, impressed with the ads thus far.

“Alisa looks so powerful in Gucci! Julia Bergshoeff is so sexy. Unexpected that Aneta and Julia Banas are good too,” wrote mikose.

HeatherAnne cheered on her favorites: “There’s no stopping Julia Bergshoeff or Ben Allen, they’re going to be around this industry for a long while!”

“This is absolutely gorgeous, even though it’s strange to see a cast of entirely new girls in a Gucci campaign who is usually so loyal to their favorite vets, each girl’s shot works, especially Julia’s,” enthused a satisfied Greenway. (more…)
