Cara Delevingne and Saskia de Brauw Star in Chanel’s Opulent Cruise 2013 Campaign (Forum Buzz)

For Chanel’s Cruise 2013 ad campaign, Karl Lagerfeld went for an opulent, Marie Antoinette-esque vibe that befits the ruffles and intricate detailing of the collection. The Kaiser tapped models Cara Delevingne and Saskia de Brauw to front the campaign, but despite Cara’s current popularity, forum members don’t seem to be too fond of her. Most of them, however, were able to see past their prejudice.

“Maybe I'm going crazy because I don't like neither Karl's photography nor Cara but I guess my love for everything Marie Antoinette overshadows that. I really enjoy those ads, can't wait to see them in print,” Melancholybaby posted.

“Cara is only one part of the campaign,” Luxx reminded all the naysayers. “There are a million other aspects, so I don't really get why the focus seems to be on her and whether or not people like her. It is not like she shot, styled, retouched and art directed this – though wouldn't it be a hoot if she did?” she asked. “I think the styling and the hair/makeup on this don't necessarily mesh well, but the images are a welcome break from the Chanel stark black and white campaigns we'd been seeing for awhile there,” she assessed.

HelplessnessGray commented, “I love the set and Cara is OK for me. She's not that bad in this print. Maybe she's overexposed but she doesn't go so far as to be hated like this…”

Maybe forum members take their models too seriously, but I think both of these girls deliver as far as this campaign is concerned. In fact, I think the casting of Cara is actually kind of brilliant. Who better than a model-socialite to advertise clothes in the ultimate rich heiress-socialite type of setting?

Ugh Fine, I’ll Start Watching ANTM Again: Boys to Join Top Model

I'd been really proud of myself for abstaining from America's Next Top Model all season.

Cycle 19 is the first that I've ever missed ever, and let me tell you: it's better on the other side. The other side is all prairie fields and butterflies and rainbows. Life without Tyra Banks is, as it turns out, not only still worth living, but in fact it's a happier life, richer and more meaningful.

But people don't really change. No matter how hard we try, we're all just hamsters running round in those little wheel thingies, around and around without any real hope of progress. Free will is an illusion; self discipline is a distraction; ANTM owns you.

And it was so: Tyra is bringing boys to ANTM and I'm going to fall off the Top Model wagon.

The reality modeling competition has been renewed for a twentieth season, with one caveat: There Will Be Boys.

Hey, Look! Scott Schuman’s in an Ad Campaign for the Ford Escape

Street style photographer and Sartorialist blogger Scott Schuman, one of the most controversial figures of the online fashion world, signed up for a guest spot on Escape My Life, a web comedy campaign series which spotlights the Ford Escape.

Each episode stars actress and comedian Natasha Leggero as Skylar, a Hollywood wardrobe designer, and actor Joe Truglio as Barry, the weird vagrant that came with her car. It's an ambitious series, chock-full of the kind of in-jokes and meta-references which characterize some of today's most popular television comedy. In the clip below, Skylar meets The Sartorialist on set and is so intimidated to be in the presence of one of her heroes, she pretends to be British. Antics ensue. And yes, some of them involve her Ford Escape.

The Eccentric Iris Apfel Looks Amazing on Dazed & Confused (Forum Buzz)

Dazed & Confused November 2012 - Iris Apfel photographed by Jeff Bark

Iris Apfel wearing Comme des Garcons on the cover of Dazed & Confused’s November 2012 issue (photographed by Jeff Bark) is the thing we never knew we were missing in our lives. Simply put, she’s amazing, and this magazine cover is amazing. Who better than the legendary Ms. Apfel to model Dazed & Confused's take on “The New Aesthetic: Art from the Outer Limits”?

“Just brilliant,” Miss Dalloway posted. “Love her, and love them for picking Iris for the cover.”

ChristyLeReveur wrote, “This is quite eccentric but I love it.”

“She pulls off Comme des Garcons so well! Brilliant idea and cover model,” Razzer commented.

Iris is the kooky, cool old lady that we all secretly (or not so secretly) hope to be one day. But, if seeing more of Iris isn’t enough to sway you (though it should be) that this issue is worth picking up, there’s an editorial with jewelry designer Delfina Delettrez’s talismanic jewelry, and lots of other cool arty, fashiony things. Try not to be too blown away by my artful skills of persuasion. Just get it for Iris. She's what you really want, even if you don't know it yet.

Brad Pitt’s Second Video Spot for Chanel N°5 Isn’t Worse Than the First

"The story continues…" tweeted Chanel, as if we'd all been waiting with bated breath to see whether the second installment of Brad Pitt's Chanel N°5 ad was as bad as the first. The short answer is, "No." The long answer is… "I don't know what Brad Pitt was thinking signing on to be Chanel's video boy, but I'm having a hard time believing that he and Angelina Jolie need any more money, even if they do have enough children to populate a small nation state."

Watch Out World: Tyra Banks Has Decided She Wants to Have a Baby

To me, a Tyra Banks video interview is sort of like a box of chocolate: overly sweet and totally unnecessary, but impossible to resist.

Anyway, former supermodel and America's Next Top Model host went on Steve Harvey and talked about how she's so, so ready to have kids:

"I'm 38 years old, I think it's time. They're going to be hard-boiled and fried and scrambled up in here," she said, pointing at her ovaries. "So it's time to get these eggs working."

It's sort of like when you oversleep in the morning and just barely have time to sit and enjoy breakfast but you still really want breakfast, so you skip conditioner in the shower and do a real road-runner job in the kitchen frying up an egg.

I'm sorry, but who talks about their own reproductive system in terms of breakfast? Breakfast is sacred.
