Kate Moss Styles Lara Stone (and Wolves) for Vogue UK’s September Issue (Forum Buzz)

After being made Contributing Fashion Editor of UK Vogue, Kate Moss is now onto her third shoot for the British monthly, which can be found inside the September 2014 issue. Kate cast Lara Stone for a story entitled “The Wolf In Her” that focuses on the idea of a wild fantasy fairy tale. Kate obviously knew what she was getting when casting the Dutch model, due to the fact that the duo have worked together before on various other shoots (although with both of them in front of the lens). Kate has previously enlisted Daria Werbowy and Freja Beha Erichsen for her Vogue styling stories.

Shot by Mario Sorrenti, Lara can be found amongst an overgrown woodland area or hiding out inside a room filled with decorative medieval fabrics. Kate styled Lara showcasing a number of ensembles from Alberta Ferretti, Dries Van Noten, Emilio Pucci and Versace. Although what really seems to make the images come alive are the wolves, which join Lara and pose cooperatively by her side for the majority of the photos.

Forum members like Kite were quick to point out the editorial inside the thread: “The best one is the Kate Moss styled Lara Stone ed, purely for the fact she isn’t a ‘Rocker Girl.'” (more…)

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s UK Harper’s Bazaar Cover ‘Looks Like Some Lipstick Ad’ (Forum Buzz)

As the September covers continue to roll in on our forums, UK Harper’s Bazaar‘s edition is the latest to surface. For the September 2014 cover, the magazine enlisted British beauty Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as its cover subject for the “biggest issue ever.” Photographed by Bazaar regular David Slijper, Rosie stares down his lens wearing a pink mohair coat from Gucci. Even coming to us with minimal text for a newsstand cover, our forum members have mixed opinions.

“Love her but wish we could see more of what she has on versus a head shot,” commented Handbag Queen.

GlamorousBoy also questioned the choice of cover image: “It is beautiful but it just looks to me like some lipstick advertising or something like that… and although it is [the] biggest issue ever, it really does not look thick.”

“It’s a good beauty shot actually. I don’t see her as a great model because she doesn’t have much range but I respect and like her beauty. The only problem I have with this is that it doesn’t say much than ‘I’m pretty look at me’ instead of feeling emotionally involved with a story or with what she would have on her (fashion wise),” shared Bertrando3.

“I don’t even mean this sarcastically, but I honestly feel like I’ve seen this exact cover done before,” noted blueorchid.

Not everyone shared their sentiments, though, with the majority of our forum members favoring the cover. “I like it a lot. Stunning cover, yay for Rosie!” enthused an elated TeeVanity.

Miranda Almond‘s styling found an admirer in miguelalmeida, who posted, “Great cover! Cool concept and it looks really good the way they placed that Gucci coat!”

After an influx of shoppers to Uniqlo’s first Australian store at Melbourne’s Emporium building, the Japanese retail giant is looking to expand throughout the country with additional stores in both Sydney and Melbourne. While the dates remain unconfirmed, we now know that Uniqlo will be opening in Melbourne’s Chadstone Shopping Centre and North Ryde’s Macquarie Centre.

It’s public knowledge that the brand was negotiating a lease for the Macquarie space, along with Victoria’s Secret and Zara, but the agreement has now been confirmed. “We’re very excited to be bringing Uniqlo to two great new locations in Sydney, now adding the Macquarie Centre to the list,” said Uniqlo Australia CEO Shoichi Miyasaka, as reported by Time Out Sydney.

But unlike H&M, which recently announced its opening in the up-and-coming Macquarie Centre, Uniqlo still has plans to set up in Sydney CBD’s Pitt Street Mall as well. Shoichi seems to be taking mental notes on how Aussie customers are reacting to the brand’s affordable products, going off its existing Melbourne store and Sydney pop-up as indication. “Growing the brand in this market is obviously very important and from what we’ve seen so far, Australians have responded really well to our offering.”

Indian Fashion Editorial Depicting a Woman Being Attacked on a Bus Sparks Major Outrage

They say life influences art, but whether that “art” should be produced is another story. Raj Shetye, a Mumbai-based photographer, recently published an editorial called “The Wrong Turn,” which has managed to upset quite a few people. The spread depicts an Indian woman being assaulted on a bus by a pack of men — it’s hard not to draw comparisons between the shoot and the tragic death of the 23-year-old woman known as “Nirbhaya,” who was raped and murdered by four men on a bus in December 2012. The story shook India and also the rest of the world. 

But despite the marked situational similarities, Shetye says that the shoot was not inspired by what happened that tragic day. Hmm…whatever you say, dude. The photographer adds that the series is “in no way meant to glamorize the act…It’s just a way of throwing light on it.” Considering that the event itself sparked an international outcry, we’re not sure if this sort of light needs to be thrown on the issue at all. Shetye admitted it took awhile for him to do the shoot in the first place, telling BuzzFeed that he had the concept in mind, but waited to follow through with it because the event was so fresh in the international consciousness.

Victoria Beckham is Putting Her Wardrobe Up for Auction – for a Good Cause

For all you girls who have waxed poetic about raiding Victoria Beckham‘s closet, it’s time to put your money where your mouth is! The designer and style crush of just about everyone has announced that she’s putting her wardrobe up for auction, in partnership with The Outnet. Beckham has teamed with the discount luxury e-tailer, donating over 600 items from her enviable closet so that slender fashionistas with deep pockets and a high line of credit can bid on some pieces to benefit mothers2mothers, a charity that helps mothers with HIV. 

There are pieces dating back all the way to her Spice Girls days as well as more recent items that you might remember if you’re a die-hard fan. Up on the block is a checkered Roland Mouret dress Beckham was photographed wearing in 2012, uplifted with oxblood accents like a cropped sweater, belt and oversized croc pouch. Also on tap is a gray, strong-shoulder, striped illusion dress by Alexander McQueen that she sported back in 2006. These might be throwback items for Beckham, but the fact that they’re still completely wearable today is a testament to her timeless style. 

In addition to the items already up for grabs,The Outnet and Beckham have handpicked 10 pieces for a high-stakes Going, Going, Gone sale. The exclusive pieces have been priced by Christie’s and according to The Outnet, will be up for grabs in a sort of “reverse auction.”

So, if you’ve got the coins and the bod to squeeze into one of Beckham’s frocks, you can register to shop the private sale which will run live from August 20 to August 25.
