After much anticipation in the Cover Rumor Thread in the forums, Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o has landed herself her first cover of Vogue. Photographed by Mikael Jansson (his first Vogue cover shoot too!) and styled by Phyllis Posnick, Lupita is showcasing Prada's Fall 2014 collection on the front of the issue.

Surprisingly, forum members are on the fence regarding the finished result. "Yes! I am thrilled to see Lupita on the cover; she looks absolutely radiant smiling! The cover story is just as gorgeous," commented Nepenthes, clearly in favor of the shoot.

"What a gorgeous cover. She looks fantastic (better than ever in print) and the photography is just great and the dress looks perfectly styled on her. I'm sold." enthused jmrmartinho.

GlamorousBoy shared the same sentiments: "The best US Vogue cover in months!"

Not everyone has the same outlook, however. "The cover just looks like it was fan made! If the background wasn't blurred it would be fantastic because she looks gorgeous. The spread has such nice shots, amazing to see Jansson score his first US Vogue cover, don't understand why she is on the cover already, but whatever, love her," wrote Miss Dalloway.

"Very fan-made. And it looks like her Marie Claire cover," shared Srdjan.

Eneroenero wasn't feeling the cover either and wrote, "Horrible! Lupita is so modern and the cover is nothing, what is this attitude?"

Pharrell Williams’ G-Star RAW Line Wins Top Honors at Cannes Lions

By now, so many people are enthralled by Pharrell Williams and his music making, ageless, weird hat-wearing self, that at this point, they're just showering him with some kind of praise–especially in the realm of fashion. So it should come as little surprise that Williams' efforts as creative director of Bionic Yarn and official G-Star collaborator would win him a few honors.

The producer just snapped up two awards at the Cannes Lions festival, the first for his "24 Hours of 'Happy'" video, and another for his RAW for the Oceans denim label, which collected the Grand Prix for the festival's very first Product Design award. 

A collaboration with G-Star RAW, the range is made from fabric crafted from ocean debris. This past season, they got together with Bionic Yarn, which makes material out of old plastic bottles. In this collab, Bionic Yarn supplied bottles made from recycled ocean plastic. The partnership is almost too perfect to be real. Kind of like Pharrell, who still may or may not be a vampire…

NYX Cosmetics Signs on With L’Oréal

Rumors have been swirling since earlier this month that NYX was about to be bought out by cosmetics giant L'Oréal Paris. Turns, out, the rumors were true as it was announced today that L'Oréal has agreed to buy NYX cosmetics, which will no doubt prove to be quite lucrative for the folks at L'Oréal. 

NYX is one of the fastest-growing makeup brands on the market, gaining fans in both regular girls and beauty gurus alike. Its formulas are high-quality and the prices are extremely affordable, comparable to some higher-end brands. The Nude on Nude natural look kit, for example, is a wonderful $12 alternative to Urban Decay's $54 Naked palette.

We'll certainly be watching to see how NYX's product lineup changes under this new deal.

Entrepreneur Barbie Is Now Offering Career Advice via Twitter

To celebrate the launch of Entrepreneur Barbie, the plastic lady herself hop on to Twitter this afternoon to host a Pink Power Lunch to advise women on career and business matters.

(She will be joined there by her Chief Inspiration Officers — that is, actual entrepreneurs, like the founders of Rent the Runway. In the immortal words of Mattel, "It’s a chance to get inspired by women who are breaking glass (and plastic) ceilings!")

Who better than Barbie to go to for work advice? The pert-bosomed blonde has accomplished plenty in the five decades she's spent in the workforce: as a flight attendant in the 1960s, she earned a pilot's licence and went on to operate commercial airliners. Later on, Barbie completed medical school and became a doctor; she then served as an astronaut and ran for President. Barbie also did a brief stint as a NASCAR driver, but I digress.

Even in her new guise as a serious, work-minded entrepreneur, Barbie still loves her accessories. She carries a briefcase loaded with a tablet and a smartphone and wears a fitted pink dress because she's always "ready for the next big pitch," as the promotional copy puts it. She also wears a "glam necklace" and totes along a "cool clutch" because these are apparently "smart, professional details." 

Entrepreneur Barbie goes on sale today on Amazon ($12.99). Start-up concept and business plan not included.

Poppytalk for Target Introduces ‘Glamping’ to Our Lexicon

Target x Poppytalk Capsule Collection

Just in time for summer cottage and camping season, Target Canada has teamed with Vancouver-based lifestyle blog, Poppytalk, to launch a stylish, limited-edition party and camping collection.

What they’re dubbing “glamping," Poppytalk provides guests with a grown-up take on the camping experience, which calls for elegant Victorian-inspired details and florals in soft, colourful hues to add luxury to any outdoor occasion — whether that be a backyard barbecue, a long weekend or simply a picnic in the park.

On offer are reimagined bowls and cake stands in printed corrugated cardboard, along with string lights, lanterns, s'mores skewers and camping stoves decorated in colourful patterns inspired by vintage china. It’s all very down-the-rabbit-hole in appearance as the line allows for a quintessential camping experience.

“Florals mixed with the lure of the great outdoors was the inspiration behind the Poppytalk for Target collection — we wanted to create an affordable collection that could easily be adaptable to a glamorous party in the backyard or a casual picnic at the beach,” said Jan Halvarson, the co-founder of Poppytalk, in a press release.

Along with her partner and husband, Earl Einarson, this pair have become known for their ability to mine the beautiful, the decayed and the handmade. Now boasting more than 20 pieces ranging in price from $3 to $20, this latest collection will be available at most Target stores across Canada and the U.S. beginning June 22, giving you plenty of time to enjoy a magical summer filled with "glamping" and pretty things.

As for Target Canada’s next move, though they’ve been suffering heavy losses since branching north of the border, they intend to keep the party going with more capsule collections to come. Look out for additional design partners Joy Cho of Oh Joy! and Kate Arends of Wit & Delight for more party décor, paper products and serving pieces.
