It’s Déjà vu for Nicole Kidman’s Salvatore Ferragamo Piece

Nicole Kidman stepped out for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, January 6, in a stunning Salvatore Ferragamo LBD which gave us a strong case of déjà vu. It’s because the Australian actress has sported the dress before, at the 17th Shanghai International film festival. This time, though, she’s restored our faith in her fashion know-how with better styling and hair and makeup choices.

For her appearance with funny man Jimmy, Nicole looked divine in the metallic-black dress featuring modest long sleeves, a Victorian-style high-neck and fine pleating. We love how she teamed the Fall 2014 choice with strappy Dolce & Gabbana shoes and loose waves to add some seduction to the otherwise timid piece. (more…)

ELLE Magazine Takes Lena Dunham in a Different Direction for Its February Cover (Forum Buzz)

ELLE deserves a round of applause for styling Lena Dunham in a different way for its annual “Women in TV” cover shoot. At first we were treated to a preview of the newsstand cover. Below is the cover for subscribers where the actress, star and creator of the hit HBO show Girls sports a black tee from Michael Stars and a necklace by Tiffany & Co, styled by Samira Nasr. Lena was captured by Paola Kudacki for both covers and also posed for a series of images inside the issue, available on newsstands January 13.

Are our forum members pleased with ELLE‘s efforts this month? “It’s a pretty good cover, but I can’t really stand Lena anymore after all those weird stories about her so-called book,” posted [Piece Of Me]. Awkward.

“Ugh, she’s so creepy. Wish people would stop giving her covers,” commented SallyAlbright.

“I don’t like her at all, and I’m trying to figure out why. Is it OK that I can’t stand her or am I just jealous because she’s like the coolest thing ever and I’m not? Don’t know,” noted gazebo, who’s unable to fathom why Lena makes for an interesting cover subject.

Benn98 didn’t think the team achieved the best look for Lena, either: “I can’t stand her but I think it’s the first time her makeup looks OK. The hair of course is horrendous. I’m quite keen to hear what she has to say. Also, I notice they gave her an OG cover, instead of the usual multi TV-girl covers. I’d have preferred to get any of those other girls featured in that edit instead. Oh well.”

Also not amused was inwhiterooms, who simply stated, “This is such a bad cover.”

Is it truly that bad?

“Love her, love her book (which I read immediately and before the backlash — I didn’t find the controversial passages to be disturbing when I read it initially), and her show. Cover image is not horrible, but it’s bland and uninspired. Ah well, this is US ELLE after all,” declared KINGofVERSAILLES.

Do you think ELLE missed the mark with its February cover? Or is this the best you’ve seen Lena look? Share your opinion here.

Alexa Chung Sings to Promote Her AG Denim Collaboration

Alexa Chung can sing. Yes, you read that right. Fashion’s resident it-girl not only has great style, but she also sounds pretty good on a track. Chung teamed with MyTheresa.com to promote her AC for AG denim collaboration and decided to grace us with a little song to drum up excitement for the forthcoming collection in this Gia Coppola-shot video.

Chung is filmed at a party where she takes the mic for a karaoke session (to the great dismay of the other partygoers), set to Stevie Nicks’ Blue Denim. Now, we love Stevie Nicks, but we’re not mad at Chung’s rendition of the tune. Her easygoing, slightly raspy vocals had us bopping our heads along to the cover. Maybe she should consider a recording contract? Perhaps a duet with Cara Delevingne

Listen to Chung for yourself in the video above.

Macy’s INC is turning 30 and to celebrate, it’s tapping the talents of Heidi Klum and Gabriel Aubry to help get the party started. 

The first photos show Klum and Aubry in a few black, navy and white looks. The mighty fine Aubry dons a navy suit, white shirt and casual black sneakers while Klum poses alongside the hunky model in a striped dress with a thigh-high slit and strappy sandals. In another shot, Heidi sports a white belted trench coat and patterned shorts. WWD has a sneak peek of the campaign, which is due to roll out mid-February.

Klum will serve as INC’s brand ambassador for womenswear and appear in campaigns throughout the year, while Aubry will hold it down for INC’s menswear collections. “I’ve always loved INC for bringing runway fashion to the masses,” Klum said of the brand in a press release. “Throughout the years, INC has been a forerunner in creating clothing that make women feel confident and sexy.” Klum previously modeled for Macy’s INC back in 1999.

Look out for the campaign images once it officially goes live next month.

Jack O’Connell Is the New Face of Prada (Forum Buzz)

Miuccia Prada continues to prove she’s in fine form as she casts rising star Jack O’Connell to front Prada’s menswear campaign for Spring 2015. The British actor arrived on radars after being cast as the lead role in the Angelina Jolie directed movie Unbroken where he plays Louis Zamperini, an American prisoner of war survivor. After the release of the movie and a cover of Man About Town, Jack was photographed by Craig McDean for the Prada ads. Shot in black and white, the actor sits back in a chair as he plays with a geometric item looking like his usual self.

Are our forums impressed? “YES!!! I LOVE HIM! I’m very happy for him! For me, he is either a Tom Ford and a Prada kinda guy! Go boy!” exclaimed an elated Lola701, who’s clearly a fan of the pairing.

“This is absolutely incredible. What a perfect choice, what a perfect image, yes applause!” posted TeeVanity.

“Yes. This is perfect. He looks great and the photos are great,” raved mistress_f.

“I had a feeling that he’d get the campaign. I honestly think he can photograph better than that and though it is miles away from my vision of the collection I think it works really well. Love the cinematic feeling,” credited Wolkfolk.

On the other hand, HeatherAnne wasn’t ecstatic. “We get it fashion world, you got suckered right into him, but he’s way too overexposed right now, and kind of a douche,” she commented inside the thread.

For the sake of variety, Jack doesn’t star in the campaign alone. Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort and Ethan Hawke were each shot by McDean in both London and New York for the ads. Check the full campaign out inside the thread here.
