Taylor Hill Outshines Bella Hadid on Vogue Paris’ Disappointing September Cover (Forum Buzz)

Bella Hadid’s portfolio sure is growing at a rapid pace this September, putting a cover of Glamour firmly under her belt while also scoring the September cover of Vogue Japan. Now, Bella fronts the September edition of Vogue Paris. Following in the footsteps of sister Gigi Hadid, Bella takes to the front of the title’s latest but shares the spotlight with American model Taylor Hill. Photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the cover girls give off some intense stares while battling it out wearing the exact same Christian Dior outfit. Who did it more justice, you ask?

Vogue Paris September 2016 : Taylor Hill & Bella Hadid by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott


Members of our forums weren’t afraid to let loose. “The Instagirls are everywhere!!! Taylor and Bella are very Vogue Paris but this is boring. Such a letdown after two stellar covers. AND ONCE AGAIN BY M&M? What can you say when you have something as boring as this?” asked a frustrated Lola701.

“Another Sept issue that is a HUGE letdown! Also pretty much maxed out on Bella, it’s shocking VP didn’t demand an exclusive with her. I mean she is on a few other…Sept covers!” chimed in Miss Dalloway. (more…)

You So Need Tickets to Tommy Hilfiger and Gigi Hadid’s Fashion Carnival

Always on the lookout for ways to give their collection that extra oomph, designers have performed many a stunt in the name of fashion. Alexander McQueen’s Fall 1998 finale saw a fringe and lace-clad masked figure standing in a ring of fire. In 2012, during Berlin Fashion Week, models strutted the subways. There’s even been a gravity-defying vertical catwalk down the length of Boston’s Revere Hotel. But on none of these occasions was there a 40-foot Ferris wheel, hot dogs, cotton candy and French fries, as is promised at the upcoming Tommy Hilfiger show. And therefore, Tommy wins.

The “see-now-buy-now” show for Tommy Hilfiger’s recent collaboration with Gigi Hadid will take place on September 9 at New York’s South Street Seaport (Pier 16 to be exact). Festively dubbed “Tommy Pier,” the interactive fashion experience will feature those classic fair rides and games (and indulgent snacks) we know and love, and — somewhere in the mix, at 7 p.m. EST — a fashion show.

If the show’s locale wasn’t evidence enough that Tommy’s all about the new trend of fashion for the people, a shoppable live-stream on will allow viewers instant access to the Gigi-cosigned goods. In addition, half of the show’s 2,000 guests will be lucky shoppers selected through analysis of the brand’s “Hilfiger Club” loyalty program, the site NYC Go (which will offer free tickets) and email outreach programs via a few of the brand’s media partners. Plus, even if you don’t snag a ticket to the grand unveiling, the Pier will reopen on September 10 from noon to 9 p.m., at which time revelers can hop on the Ferris wheel, peruse two Tommy x Gigi pop-up shops along with a vintage Tommy Hilfiger store (you ride that 90s nostalgia wave, boy) and get their nail and flash tattoo game on at booths along the pier.

Aussie Schoolgirl’s Speech Against Miniskirt Ban Goes Viral

A year nine student from Kambrya College in Victoria has spoken out against a ban on short skirts and ‘sexy selfies’ at her school.

Faith Sobotker uploaded a video slamming her school’s move, contesting that sexism and the objectification of young women should be what is targeted, and not the length of girls’ skirts. “I have self-respect, I look after myself,” Ms Sobotker says in the video. “You can’t tell me what self-respect is, you can’t tell me what ‘ladylike’ is.

“I’m looking for equality,” she continues. “I am 15 years old, you do not get to sexualise like me like that. Half the population is female, we are not sacred.” Ms. Sobotker goes on to speak about the battles she faces daily as a young woman, and the daily sexism that comes with seemingly trivial occurrences like boys constantly asking if she is on her period.

The video has gone viral and been shared by news outlets around the country, while Faith has faced significant backlash as well as significant support online. She has posted this status to her Facebook page in response.

In a statement posted to the Kambrya College website, the school’s Principal Michael Muscat says the school held an assembly with some female students, where the school’s uniform policy was discussed.

“The girls’ assembly was also used as an opportunity to remind students of the existing uniform policy, finalised late last year following an extensive consultation process involving all students, parents and staff,” he says. “I want to be clear here and say that in no way did we suggest that what girls wear makes harassment or abuse acceptable. This is never the case. The enforcement of our uniform policy and the abuse and the recent exploitation of girls online are separate issues and should be treated as such.”

The full statement can be read on the Kambrya College website.

This New Tattoo Trend Is the Perfect Way to Celebrate the Queen That You Are

John Michel Basquiat used crowns to signify his ambition, his own majestic power and that of the figures he admired. Now, some spurred on by body positive Australian mommy blogger Constance Hall, others by the pulse of popular lexicon, women on Instagram are borrowing from Basquiat and performing their own self-coronations — in the form of tattoos.

Constance Hall, who boasts over 100,000 Instagram followers, is one of those inspirational women who seeks to empower other females in their orbit by reminding them they are strong queens and deserve to be treated as such. (Side note: One of our favorite moments on television this past year was when Broad City’s Ilana, while tearfully telling her bestie Abbi of a breakup with her open relationship partner Lincoln, rather than jealously cutting down his new, monogamous partner, referred to her as “a queen, just like us.”) Constance constantly celebrates her followers’ magnificence, titling her blog Queens of Constance and her book Like a Queen.

Kaia Gerber Channels Mom Cindy Crawford in These Delightful Covers for POP Magazine (Forum Buzz)

Kaia Gerber is the hottest new thing on the block and the fashion industry continues to embrace the daughter of modeling royalty Cindy Crawford. She’s already been on the cover of Vogue Paris, posed before the lens of the legendary Steven Meisel, done an advertising campaign for Alexander Wang and now takes to the cover of POP — her first big solo blue-chip magazine cover. Complete with a very evident concept referencing back to her mom’s modeling heyday, Kaia participated in an 80s-inspired cover shoot by Charlotte Wales and we’re loving it. Serving up a trio of youthful covers and a lengthy fashion spread to seal the deal, Kaia’s a welcome sight if you ask us.

Members of our forums were delighted. “She needs to work on her modeling but she’s miles ahead of Kendall already and there’s no doubt she is going to blossom into a beautiful young lady. She truly is her mother’s daughter, the resemblance is uncanny in some of those pics,” said marsnoop2 straight away.

“So stunning! This is what a Vogue Paris cover should be like TBH,” championed JoCaderone. (more…)
