Sarah Jessica Parker’s Harper’s Bazaar Cover Is a Photoshop Disaster (Forum Buzz)

We’re now pretty much done with the Katy Perry reprints, which Harper’s Bazaar bombarded us with last month. Bazaar‘s October installment has been unveiled and is currently the hot topic of discussion on our forums. Sarah Jessica Parker was captured by photographer Alexi Lubomirski, leaving us more or less horrified with the outcome. The bold and unusual cover for subscribers found its way into the thread first (right) while the regular newsstand version arrived fashionably late (left), with SJP wearing Valentino on both.

“Eek, it’s certainly interesting. I just don’t know whether a silhouette like this works well for a cover,” thought Benn98 the moment the subs cover surfaced.

“That is the ugliest, cheapest and most amateur looking cover I think I’ve ever seen,” MyNameIs slammed soon after.

Also not feeling any of Bazaar’s best efforts was Oxymore, laughing, “OMG Photoshop disaster!”

Forum member dfl-001 agreed: “She’s not photogenic so that may explain the darkened silhouette.” Ouch! Later going on to suggest, “If you have to completely rearrange someone’s face with that atrocious Photoshop, maybe it’s time to throw in the towel.”

Nymphaea was quick to throw some shade too. “That’s horribly done!” she shared in horror.

“You’re so right, it’s really unfortunate. What’s happening with her teeth? It looks weird!” Benn98 responded in agreement, returning to the thread to take a closer peek.

“The cover is grotesque! It’s absolutely vile! She really does look like an alien in disguise. What were they thinking?” asked GivenchyHomme.

A Valentino Haute Couture-clad Lupita Nyong’o is Vogue‘s October cover star and, as this is her second time on the magazine, it’s her turn to answer Vogue‘s famous 73 questions. The Star Wars actress is all smiles, grace and charm as Vogue asks all the questions about Lupita we never knew we wanted to know. And as an added bonus, we get to watch her work a lightsaber, hula hoop and walk in heels at the same time. Clearly she is a woman of many, many talents. 

Below, a few things we learned about Lupita thanks to the video:

  • She eats plantain, sweet potatoes and blueberries for breakfast.
  • She loves pineapple juice and would love to drink some with Misty Copeland.
  • She gets pumped up at the gym listening to Mavado’s “I’m So Special.”
  • She loves wide-brimmed hats.
  • The meerkat is her spirit animal.
  • She prefers pearls over diamonds.

I’ll be honest, this one is difficult to write as I know this will be my last The Bachelor Season 3 recap and it’s hard to say goodbye. It’s that bittersweet feeling. I really want to know who Sam ends up with but, at the same time, I don’t want to see any of these women get hurt.

We briefly got to met Sam’s family right at the beginning in Episode 1, and what a supporting and lovely family they were. 

I knew tonight wouldn’t be too tough for the ladies, well, nothing like when Sam had to meet their families anyway. If he is still confused on who he should pick, I’m sure this will have a big impact on his decision.  (more…)

The Bachelor Australia Season 3 is about to come to an end tonight, and the question on everyone’s lips is, will it be single mum Snezana Markoski or latecomer Lana Jeavons-Fellows?

Past winners Anna Heinrich and Sam Frost definitely had that something special which saw them take out the final rose for Season 1 and Season 2 respectively, plus they’ve both met Sam Wood and have got a feel for what he’s like, so we thought we’d check in with them to see who they think should win.

Sam, who has now been in all Sam, Lana and Snezana’s positions now that she’s been on both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, thinks Snezana should take it out.  (more…)

Naomi Watts may have been busy over the last week busting out a mix of looks for the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival, but the Australian actress found a spare moment for Michael Kors’ Spring 2016 show at New York Fashion Week on Wednesday, September 16.

Naomi sat front row alongside the likes of fellow actress Olivia Wilde and photographer Mario Testino, showing us all how colourblocking can be done in a red, black and white Michael Kors Resort 2016 piece.

The bold piece made a strong statement, including a black tank-style bodice complete with a contrasting red collar, plus a centre-split skirt down bottom with curved contrasting panels.

Naomi suitably kept her hair, makeup and accessories minimal. The black double-strap heels and textured clutch kept in theme with the colour scheme, and her soft and simple makeup lessened the load of the striking colour palette.
