WATCH: Rose McGowan’s Musical Debut Will Give You the Best Kind of Nightmares

If you’ve ever wondered what Rose McGowan would look like bald and five to 100 skin tones lighter, you’re in luck. The queen of kook has truly outdone herself in a wildly weird music video for RM486, which has left us terribly confused, captivated and plain terrified. 

The masterpiece, if you will, was directed by Jonas Åkerlund, who was behind everything from Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” and “Paparazzi” clips to the On the Run Tour: Beyonce and Jay Z doco.

Jonas also had the help of his wife, B. Åkerlund, for the epic styling, which sees a piercing-lovin’, crucifix-wearing (more satanic than the “honk if you the love Jesus” kind) Rose splashed in blood, glitter and purple hair dye, all while making a serious case for #FreeTheNipple.   (more…)

Vogue Netherlands Sets High Standards with This Andreea Diaconu Cover (Forum Buzz)

Most of us are still recovering from the nightmares Vogue Netherlands‘ September cover gave us, thanks to that deeply unattractive jumpsuit. Thankfully, with the release of Dutch Vogue‘s October 2015 edition, last month’s disaster is soon to disappear from newsstands, but can we forgive and forget? Andreea Diaconu is the magazine’s cover girl of choice this time around, posing before the lens of Annemarieke van Drimmelen wearing Christian Dior.

Safe to say, Vogue Netherlands has indeed regained our loyalty. “WOW love love love this cover!” Oxymore hailed immediately.

“My God, October is getting better and better!! This, after Karlie’s cover, is hands down the best they’ve produced so far,” added an equally excited Benn98.

“Simple, clean, striking. Love!” simply stated gazebo.

Miss Dalloway was quick to show the cover some love, too, praising, “Such a gorgeous cover, love everything about this!”

Echoing the same sentiments was MON: “STUNNING! Yes. Yes!! There’s nothing wrong with it. I like the faded vibe of it that makes it seem dated yet so fresh. This is by far the best cover they’ve produced so far!”

“Love love love this cover, it’s so good. Their best so far. Everything just falls into place. Please continue this way,” pleaded an ecstatic KateTheGreatest.

“Really beautiful and captivating cover shot. And indeed October is slaying all of the September covers,” said a thrilled marsnoop2.

Julia Roberts Looks Amazing on Allure’s October Cover (Forum Buzz)

We’ve pretty much fallen in love with Allure magazine all over again, having recently bestowed upon us fabulous covers featuring the likes of Taraji P. Henson and Salma Hayek. After serving us Jessica Alba for September, Allure goes from strength to strength by delivering Julia Roberts for October. An unexpected yet welcomed choice, the 47-year-old actress shines before the lens of photographer Tom Munro wearing a black silk Lanvin blouse, making us want to watch Pretty Woman just for the sheer hell of it.

Kendall Jenner Joins Supermodels Gisele, Kate and Christy on Vogue Paris (Forum Buzz)

Our worst fears became a reality this weekend when Kendall Jenner was unveiled as one of Vogue Paris‘ October cover girls. Joining the likes of Christy Turlington Burns (below left), Kate Moss (below middle) and Gisele Bündchen (below right), Kendall tries to hold her own against the supermodel legends, fronting one of the four covers for French Vogue‘s momentous 95th birthday issue. Kendall was shot by David Sims, while Christy was photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Gisele stripped for Mario Testino and Kate allowed Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott access into her Cotswold home. So, which one’s our favorite?

Forum members went off on one particular cover. “Kendall doesn’t belong between the supers. The covers are overall nothing special, it certainly doesn’t look to have taken much effort to make these covers,” Nymphaea slammed right away. (more…)
