Bella Hadid is doing just fine for herself on the magazine front lately, having recently starred on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Spain and receiving rave reviews on our forums. Bella now takes to the cover of Vogue Turkey, a magazine that often falls short on our forums. Sure to garner the magazine some much-needed attention, Bella gets all dolled up in Givenchy for her first Vogue cover, shot on location by Sebastian Faena.
Three months out, there’s much about the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics that remains up in the air. Will athletes contract the Zika virus and be unable to perform? (Approximately 1.5 million Brazilians were infected last year.) Will the pollution-ravaged Guanabara Bay be clean before the sailing competition? (Ricardo Leyser, Brazil’s new sports minister, says not entirely.) Will the nation’s political unrest have subsided? (President Dilma Rousseff is on the brink of being ousted for corruption.) Will the stadium even be ready? (A recently constructed elevated bike path collapsed last week, killing two, but Leyser holds that the facilities are safe, sound and well on the road to complete, barring any major delays.)
…But thanks to Stella McCartney for Adidas and Polo Ralph Lauren, we know what the (repellant-anointed) British and American athletes will be wearing, respectively. (more…)
As announced back in January, Léa Seydoux is one of the latest actresses to join Louis Vuitton’s ever-growing list of ambassadors. Joining the likes of Alicia Vikander and Michelle Williams, the French beauty’s first campaign for the iconic fashion house has been unveiled for our pleasure. Fronting Vuitton’s seasonal Spirit of Travel campaign, Léa looks right at home before the lens of photographer Patrick Demarchelier. The team descended on a modern ranch situated in Mexico City for the occasion as Léa models an array of handbags designed and reimagined by Nicolas Ghesquière, which complement the very vibrant surroundings.
Members of our forums weren’t very excited about Léa’s new gig with Vuitton, however. “An overall bad combination. She worked better for Prada and Miu Miu,” disapproved GivenchyHomme the moment the campaign dropped.
“She is beautiful even if it’s weird not seeing her as the sophisticated woman she was for Prada,” added Lola701. (more…)
In case the global manhunt for “Becky with the good hair” wasn’t evidence enough, Beyoncé’s inaugural Formation World Tour show last night solidified the inescapable fact: Mess with the Queen Bey and you get stung.
This message is decidedly not directed at “her beautiful husband” Jay Z, to whom Beyoncé dedicated her closing song “Halo” despite the rumors of marital discord that popped up following the release of Beyoncé’s seemingly autobiographical visual album, Lemonade. No, this P.S.A. is for Javier Ortiz, the Miami Fraternal Order of Police president who claimed Miami police would boycott the superstar’s opening performance. It’s also a nod — or rather a head tilt — to those who criticized Bey’s transcendent, politically charged Super Bowl 2016 performance, especially the three singular haters who later showed up at NFL headquarters to protest the halftime show. As well as, you know, anyone else who might stand in her way. (more…)
We know what you’re thinking: another day, another celebrity-backed, limited-edition line. However, Lady Gaga and Elton John’s Love Bravery collaboration for Macy’s features not one, but two fashion-forward icons — and it’s for a good cause, so that’s triple the reason to give it a second look.
Twenty-five percent of all proceeds from the exclusive collection will go towards the singers’ respective charities, The Elton John Aids Foundation (EJAF) and The Born This Way Foundation (BTWF), both of which aim to “make the world a kinder and braver place where men and women everywhere are empowered to live with compassion.” Gaga’s BTWF, named for her freedom anthem for minorities, has worked to help young people understand and gain access to mental health services since 2012. The EJAF, which has operated in both the U.S. and the U.K. for over two decades, has raised over $350 million to help treat and safeguard over 150 million people worldwide who are either living with or highly vulnerable to AIDS.

Fox Searchlight Pictures just dropped the full-length trailer for Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie, and not since Sex and the City have we been this excited to shell out a crisp Andrew Jackson — can’t wait to say Harriet Tubman — to watch our favorite fashionable sitcom characters run amok on the silver screen.
The premise is simple: Longtime best friends Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley) and Edina Monsoon (Jennifer Saunders), a magazine editor and PR agent respectively, are just where we left them: united by their affinity for self-destructive behavior and desperate desire to stay young and hip. At the start of the film, the two attend “London’s biggest fashion event of the year,” where Edina unwittingly knocks the legendary Kate Moss into the Thames, earning her the ire of all of Britain (most notably a brick-wielding Stella McCartney). Patsy sagely decides it would be best for them to skip town and lay low in the South of France where “everyone’s a criminal.” (more…)
