Calling All Beauty Bloggers: Kim Kardashian’s New Reality Show Wants You to Compete to Join Her Glam Squad

Kim Kardashian’s vision of America is akin to that of Andrew Carnegie. Much like the late steel tycoon, she believes everyone is entitled to a chance at fame and fortune. And by everyone, we mean beauty bloggers with substantial followings, known for their makeup skills and tutorials.

According to a casting call announcement first spotted by PopSugar, Kim K has yet another reality show in works. Executive produced by KiKi herself (videographer of Kanye, foe of Taylor Swift) and the deep pockets behind Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York, the show, a sort of America’s Next Top Model for beauty bloggers, has already been picked up by a major cable television network.

Paloma Elsesser and Claire Fountain Star in Nike’s New (Sort of) Body Positive Bra Ads

Nike has been through its share of ups and downs. Recently, the company received some good press for upping worker benefits and sustainability goals, only to be dubbed toxic by Greenpeace soon after for failure to eliminate 100 percent of PFCs and a lack of transparency about suppliers. However, we can now add another check in Nike’s “win” column thanks to the brand’s latest social media initiative, #Brahaus, which consciously, refreshingly, features non-straight-sized women without labeling them as “plus-size.” Nike is the first activewear giant to make the statement that being curvy doesn’t equate to being unhealthy.

Underlining the idea that women of all sizes care about fitness, among Nike’s five social media campaign stars are curvy model Paloma Elsesser and Trill Yoga creator Claire Fountain. The brand shares their stories whilst also showcasing its latest line of sports bras, the Nike Pro bra collection.

New York-based “culture creator,” ASOS Curve model, muse to Pat McGrath and all-around cool girl Paloma tells Nike she first discovered her love of fashion “rifling in my sister and mom’s closet. I would construct these costumes and leave for school the next day. Some days I was girly, some boyish, some punk. I remember being fascinated at how I could transcend my regular dress and be whoever I wanted to be, by simply using clothes.” (more…)

Chanel’s ‘Sad Collage’ of a Campaign for Fall 2016 Is a Flop According to tFS Forums (Forum Buzz)

As reported on our forums back in March, Mariacarla Boscono and Sarah Brannon were handpicked by Karl Lagerfeld to star in Chanel’s upcoming Fall 2016 campaign, replacing Mica Arganaraz and Lineisy Montero who roamed the streets of Brooklyn for the brand last season. Photographed by Lagerfeld (per usual) and styled by Carine Roitfeld, the ads feature an artsy cut-and-paste collage design, which unfortunately failed to impress our forum members.

Forum members were not feeling the concept. “No. This Looks cheap, like a fragrance campaign for 12-year-olds,” slammed dcmaike at once.

“First the Prada background and now this?” asked a horrified SpeakThatJDunn. (more…)

Following in the footsteps of her besties Kendall and Gigi, Hailey Baldwin, face of Guess and Tommy Hilfiger, big-name runway show walker and keeper of more than 6.5 million Instagram followers, has added the coveted designer notch to her belt. The Instagirl just announced her collaboration with Australian luxury leather goods label The Daily Edited. (more…)

Kendall Jenner Nails Elvis Impersonation in Fendi’s Fall 2016 Ad Campaign

Karl Lagerfeld, much like Marc Jacobs, has long been a champion for Kendall Jenner. Recently, he graced the bonafide supermodel with the opening spot at Fendi’s breathtaking 90th anniversary show. As a follow-up to Kendall’s fountain-side stroll, three days ago the brand revealed the first images from its Fall 2016 campaign, starring the catwalk queen, who posed for none other than Lagerfeld himself.

In one photo, the 20-year-old model channels a young Elvis Presley. Her recently cropped tresses are styled in a tight, boyish bouffant, her smoky eye makeup at once conceals and accentuates her full, coquettish lashes. Her orange and purple-striped button-down shirt and brown slacks contribute to the ad’s offbeat, 60s-era androgynous vibe. (more…)

‘Suicide Squad’ Stars Margot Robbie and Cara Delevingne Cover Love Magazine’s Fall 2016 Issue (Forum Buzz)

Most of this month’s fashion glossies have failed to deliver and Love magazine quickly reminds us of its existence by unveiling two eye-catching new covers for its latest issue: one with Margot Robbie and another featuring Cara Delevingne. The two Suicide Squad actresses were shot by photographer Willy Vanderperre and styled by the magazine’s founder Katie Grand for a colorful, 80s-inspired shoot while looking like some die-hard Culture Club groupies.

But the members of our forums most definitely weren’t in the mood for an 80s revival. “Reminds me of Boy George!” stated congacon, after glancing at Margot’s alternative.

“Oh my god, enough of Margot Robbie already!” screamed Scotty, remembering her recent Vanity Fair cover appearance. (more…)
