Get Ready for the Victoria’s Secret Swimsuit TV Special

We hope you weren’t all Victoria’s Secreted out after last month’s fashion show because the lingerie giant is airing another TV special, this time to promote its swim collection. Victoria’s Secret gathered up its troop of leggy models and flew them out to Puerto Rico to shoot the swim campaign. This special follows the models on their shoots throughout the island, letting you get up close and personal with the gorgeous gals.

Of course, no Victoria’s Secret special would be complete without some musical numbers, so the retailer has tapped Maroon 5 and Colombian singer Juanes to perform during the hour-long broadcast. What goes together better than Adam Levine and models? (Granted, his wife is an Angel.) Adriana Lima, Jasmine Tookes, Lily Aldridge, Alessandra Ambrosio, Joan Smalls and more will appear on the show. 

The models have already posted a few sneak peeks of their respective shoots. Joan frolicking on the beach with a pony, the Angels sultrily posing at a bonfire, Adriana taking in the sunrise — you could be taking all this in on the comfort of your couch come February 26.

Catch the broadcast that Thursday evening on CBS at 10:00 p.m. EST.

We’re Happy to See Keira Knightley on ELLE UK’s March Cover, but… (Forum Buzz)

The British edition of ELLE often fails to impress our forum members, and the big spring issue seems to have missed the mark again. Keira Knightley wears Chanel exclusively on the March 2015 cover and in the accompanying cover story photographed by Mariano Vivanco. Keira is no stranger to wearing Chanel on magazine covers and in general; we’ll never forget her beautiful cover for U.K. Harper’s Bazaar back in February 2014.

So what went wrong here? “She looks beautiful, as always, but the image itself isn’t great for a March cover for me,” commented honeycombchild within moments of the cover surfacing on our forums. 

“Yeah, it’s not too springy for March. I wish it was a close up, from her right elbow up. She’s gorgeous, I want to see her face,” soon responded KateTheGreatest in agreement.

Feeling the exact same way was tigerrouge: “It’s not a super-impressive shot for the front of a big March fashion issue, but she does look lovely, and I’m happy to see that it’s her.”

“Keira looks tremendous but there’s zero ‘fashion’ here. My main problem with ELLE is their cover styling. It’s been much too cohesive lately, you actually cannot tell the one month apart from the next,” complained Benn98.

A.D.C. also felt the cover was anticlimactic and ranted, “British magazines are really anti glamour aren’t they? One of the reasons why I appreciate UK Bazaar. They at least try to produce glamorous covers but Vogue and ELLE are a pedestrian lost cause.”

Givenchy Will Do Couture Shows Again

For the past few seasons, Givenchy has opted out of presenting a couture collection, officially announcing a break from the calendar at the end of 2012. But now, there’s hope that the French fashion house will make a comeback to the trade, thanks to a bit of tea Riccardo Tisci spilled to The New York Times this week. 

Before heading to the after-party for Atelier Versace, the designer let it slip that Givenchy will be going back to presenting couture shows again — and then he “smiled and then walked away.”

Oh, Tisci, you sly dog. We’re glad that the designer will again be creating couture collections — after all, Kim Kardashian and Tisci’s flock of famous gal pals aren’t the only ones that should be able to rock threads from the Givenchy atelier. Non-famous, but still wildly wealthy women with a penchant for expensive clothes deserve a little love, too.

Watch: Kim Kardashian’s T-Mobile Commercial Is Hilarious

Whatever you have to say about Kim Kardashian, one thing’s for sure: She isn’t above poking fun at herself. The reality star was tapped to appear in T-Mobile’s latest Super Bowl commercial, a version of which aired during Conan last night. The spot has the feel of a very serious PSA (think Sarah McLachlan’s ASPCA commercial, minus the depressing puppy and kitten faces) with Mrs. Kardashian West relaying the sad reality that unused data minutes your phone company collects keeps you from looking at more of her vacation, tennis, makeup and OOTD selfies.

“Tragic,” the reality star deadpans, asking us to “help save the data.” You can expect another, longer version of the commercial during the Super Bowl. We wonder if it will include an appearance by Kanye, or better yet, North West.

Watch Kim in the hilarious clip above.

It’s Over Between Sofia Vergara and Kmart

Sofia Vergara and Kmart are parting ways, after partnering for the last four years on the Sofia by Sofia Vergara collection, a range that included apparel and intimates. The actress says she is “looking forward to pursuing new opportunities in the apparel world,” though we don’t yet know what her next move will be.

Sofia has racked up quite a generous share of endorsements, ranging from deals with Kay Jewelers (she even wore jewelry by the brand for her SAG Awards appearance) to Head & Shoulders, the latter of which also features the star’s family. Sofia is expected to launch her second fragrance this summer, so it’s clear she has no trouble pulling in licensing deals. We wager it won’t be long until we see Sofia Vergara apparel on shelves again, even if it isn’t with Kmart.

Georgia May Jagger Replaces Cara Delevingne as the Face of Mulberry (Forum Buzz)

Not only has Georgia May Jagger replaced Cara Delevingne as the face of Mulberry’s spring campaign, but a new photographic team makes for a refreshing change. Lensed by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin (replacing Tim Walker), Georgia stands before a makeshift studio backdrop erected inside a country manor, suggesting the shoot was unrehearsed. To accompany the print ads that are slated to break inside the March issues of fashion glossies, Mulberry also released a video, which can be viewed on the brand’s site.

But the best efforts of the team involved in the shoot, from Melanie Ward on styling duties to Christiaan tending to Georgia’s tresses, don’t mean a thing if our forum members aren’t feeling it. Marsnoop2 summed it up, declaring the ads “truly terrible.”

“I should be lined against a wall and shot for saying this, but I actually miss Cara now. The concept seems nice, that whole split scene vibe, but the execution is poor. Not entirely Georgia’s fault,” added Benn98, also not exactly sharing an ecstatic notion for the campaign.

Emmanuelle failed to see how Georgia was a good choice for Mulberry. “I like the setting, even if it is a little too dark. I am not sure Georgia is the best model choice for the brand. She looks too sophisticated, and her poses are not natural enough I think,” she commented. (more…)
