Karmen Pedaru Enchants in Sultry Vogue Japan Editorial (Forum Buzz)

Rarely does an editorial inside a magazine get more buzz on theFashionSpot forums than the cover or the cover story itself, but that might just be the case with Karmen Pedaru's editorial for the Vogue Japan June 2014 issue titled, "The Metallic Sense of Midnight." Although the cover, fronted by Doutzen Kroes, was a massive hit among tFS members, the true highlight of the issue seems to be Karmen's story. (And Doutzen doesn't actually have an editorial inside.)

"Karmen's editorial is EVERYTHING!" posted marsnoop2.

Burbuja8910 agreed, "That Karmen's spread is amazing, the lighting, the theme of the ed, etc., all is so brilliant."

"Such a sultry ed! LOVE Karmen in this editorial!" swooned miguelalmeida.

Forum members unanimously agreed that this was an exceptional editorial. The story, shot by photographers Sean & Seng, indeed feels like a breath of fresh air amidst so many similarly themed stories in all the spring issues this year. It is not hard at all to see the appeal in these images. Karmen obviously looks divine and the photography is outstanding.  

Models Zuzanna Bijoch, Elisabeth Erm, Katlin Aas and Hedi Slimane muse Grace Hartzel also have editorials in this issue. Check out all the stories and join the discussion on the forums, here

Mile-High Club Member Chrissy Teigen Lives to Regret Her High Altitude Hook-Up

Chrissy Teigen pictured naked in a bath tub for Cosmopolitan


Chrissy Teigen's three covers for Cosmopolitan's June 2014 issue dropped online earlier today — and so did a couple choice highlights from the accompanying interview. The "big news" here is that the Sports Illustrated model is a member of the mile-high club: 

"We were on our way to Thailand to see my parents, flying commercial first-class. We were under a blanket. We weren’t even in one of those pod things. I feel like we should get a trophy for that."

Trophy granted, in the form of social media buzz. But be careful what you wish for, especially when you're asking to be publicly recognized for participating in a high altitude hook-up: "Yes my entire family now knows I had sex on a plane and yes I want to die thank you for asking," the model tweeted

A Blonde Aymeline Valade is Numéro’s May Cover Girl (Forum Buzz)

Over the weekend, the latest from French title Numéro surfaced on the forums. The May 2014 cover features Aymeline Valade wearing a red Dolce & Gabbana dress, photographed by Txema Yeste. Valade (who debuted her blonde hair during fashion week) is seen posing against a saturated backdrop, a perfect complement to the "exotique" cover line.

"One of the few times where her blonde hair doesn't bother me," wrote Marc10.

Although |PerfectTonight| disagreed: "Blond doesn't suit her at all!"

"YES! Aymeline + saturated colors + Exotique = I'M IN!" wrote an enthused miguelalmeida.

"Nice to see Aymeline on the cover and love the colours and she looks gorgeous!" agreed visualoptimism.

Nepenthes was also head over heels for the cover: "Aymeline looks absolutely glorious. I love Yeste's saturated style."

As was Kanna, who was pleased to see Txeme Yeste shoot the cover: "Finally an impressive cover came out in a long time from Numéro. I'm happy for it. Aymeline looks sensual yet classy and the photo itself is well-suited for the theme of the issue. Exotic. Txema Yeste is the only photographer I like among the ones who newly joined Numéro."

"Everything in this picture looks sooo good ! Aymeline made a great job here. Styling and background amazing!" wrote Emmanuelle.

I used to absolutely love French Numéro but I have found their issues to be disappointing for a number of years now. Let's hope this particular issue holds some promise. Want to add your two cents? Join the discussion here.

Livia Firth Calls on Consumers to Recognize the ‘Real People’ Behind Cheap Fashion



Speaking at the Copenhagen Fashion Summit, a 1000-person conference on sustainability which took place last Thursday, Livia Firth called out fast fashion brands for ignoring the human cost of cheap clothing manufacturing: “If fast fashion didn’t exist, we wouldn’t need a summit in Copenhagen,” she said, according to WWD

Firth is the creative director of Eco-Age, a consultancy which helps companies develop sustainable strategies, and the founder of Green Carpet Challenge, a project which aims to bring ethical design to the red carpet. 

From WWD:

"Citing high-street retailers as key to cracking the sustainability conundrum, Firth berated them for a slovenly approach to basic human rights through the inhumane speed, bulk and price at which garments are produced…

Consumers have become adept at '[divorcing] the clothes we buy from the fact that living, breathing people make them,” meaning the key to change lies in 'reconnection and recognition that the supply chain is comprised of real people,' she said."
