We’ve Seen This Alexa Chung ELLE UK Cover a Thousand Times Before (Forum Buzz)

According to our forums, the British edition of ELLE seems unwilling to deliver groundbreaking material and we’re becoming increasingly frustrated with the magazine. Half expecting a festive cover for December, ELLE instead insisted on gifting us a rather cold and lifeless shot of Alexa Chung. Photographed by Matt Irwin, the style icon turned digital mogul gives us 60s/Twiggy vibes, nonchalantly posing on the studio floor wearing a spring-feeling Dolce & Gabbana dress.

Members of our forums weren’t in the mood. “I’m not one of those ELLE U.K. haters (there have been some nice covers lately and I like their graphic layout), but it feels like we’ve seen this cover one thousand times! White background, Alexa in florals…So bland and seen,” Srdjan ranted immediately.

“Agreed, they haven’t had a really striking cover in a while even though their cover subjects might be interesting. Something festive or with a little fantasy wouldn’t hurt,” replied Benn98.

“Looks more like a January issue than a December one,” chimed in tigerrouge. (more…)

We never tire of seeing Naomi Campbell strike a pose in lingerie, whether it’s for a magazine cover or on the runway. Given her affinity for lacy bras and panties, it makes perfect sense that the supermodel is finally launching a line of lingerie in collaboration with Italian innerwear company Yamamay.

Dubbed #IAmNaomiCampbell (perhaps a nod to her Instagram handle), the line includes seven collections of bras, panties, bodysuits and robes, ranging in price from $32-$65. The lingerie sets boast names like Iconic, Endearing and Magnificent, and she’s obviously all of the above. (more…)

We all know the phrase, “I wish I could wear [insert crop top, jumpsuit, miniskirt here].” Amazon Fashion Europe has the best response: just wear it! Its new campaign taps London Tall Girl blogger Marsha Campbell, plus-size activist Ana Pizarro and albino model Ingrid Behague Sockeel to wear the very garments other say they can’t. The result is simply brilliant.

Lensed by Rankin, the campaign disrupts old fashion myths while empowering women to wear whatever they choose. It’s inspiring to see Campbell strut in high heels or Pizarro flaunt her curves in a fitted dress. Sockeel is stunning in a bright red dress. Not only do they look phenomenal, they own their looks with confidence. (more…)

Pia Mia shows us some Krav Maga

Aside from an enviable dinner-table voice and a swagger style to beat, 19-year-old Guam-native Pia Mia teaches Krav Maga, an Israeli form of self defence, so we got the “Touch” singer to teach us a little somethin’ somethin’ about the practice.

After chatting to theFashionSpot about koalas and her personal style, Pia showed us the proper way to create a fist shape before you punch during boxing for impeccable fitness or to defend yourself in dangerous situations.

She found it a little tricky to do with her lengthy nails getting in the way, but you can get the gist of it with her simple rules in the video below. While it’s probably the perfect opportunity to warn you away from messing with this crooner, she’s actually the sweetest thing ever, who we can safely assume wouldn’t hurt a fly. (more…)

WATCH: One Direction Break Our Hearts All Over Again With Another ‘Torn’ Cover

True Directioners will remember when the boys reprised Natalie Imbruglia’s “Torn” at Simon Cowell’s pad and then again in the final three of The X Factor UK compeitiion, and this week, as they release their fifth album and their first without Zayn Malik, the group have blessed us once more with their first performance of the song in five years.

Stopping by BBC Radio 1’s “Live Lounge” to promote a bunch of songs from the new album “Made In the A.M”, the boy band also proved that the fortune teller’s right and there’s nothing where Zayn used to lie with their old favourite “Torn”.

They also performed Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney’s “FourFiveSeconds”, which was fab, but the Natalie cover really showed us what it was to cry. While Harry Style’s voice and face have only gotten more beautiful over the past five years, we also don’t know who would object to these four now-adult men talking about lying naked on the floor.

Australian actress Clare Bowen has revealed why she cut all her hair off recently, and the reason will break your heart and inspire you all at the same time.

Sharing a tell-all post with her Facebook fans, Clare begins by asking “Wanna know why I cut it all off?” before revealing the painful story which got her to this point. The Nashville star explained that when she was just four years old she was diagnosed with end stage nephroblastoma, a mass of cancer cells that grow in the kidney area.

Because of her severe condition, she grew up surrounded by children just like her in hospital, who she says were “mostly bald, all tubed, taped, bandaged up and stitched back together.” (more…)
