The next time you’re feeling discouraged about your career progress, remember this: Gisele Bündchen was once told she’d never grace a magazine cover. She also faced 42 casting rejections before walking the Alexander McQueen show in 1998. We have this on record — this is not merely a ploy by the Brazilian beauty to appear relatable as she promotes her upcoming Taschen photo book, Gisele, due out May 10.

While we don’t all have the consolation prize of being willowy, naturally bronzed and blue-slash-green-eyed, it is heartening to know that the struggle is somewhat universal. When Gisele was first starting out in the fashion industry, “I remember some people telling me my nose was too big or my eyes were too small, that I could never be on a magazine cover,” the highest paid supermodel in the world confessed to People. Industry insiders need to cease bullying our Angels. (more…)

Bella Hadid Just Scored Her First Vogue Cover, Starring on Vogue Turkey for May 2016 (Forum Buzz)

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.

“Old glamour in a cheap way, not my cup of tea,” pointed out an underwhelmed Nymphaea.

“Irina Shayk is it you? I like the jewelry but not the hair. I like the fact that they tried something different with Bella but I’m not convinced. It’s a pretty cover though,” added Aizanara. (more…)

Stella McCartney vs. Polo Ralph Lauren: Who Won the Olympic Apparel Games?

Stella McCartney releases her designs for Rio 2106.

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…)

Léa Seydoux’s First Campaign for Louis Vuitton Kind of Misses the Point (Form Buzz)

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…)

Beyoncé’s Official Tour Merchandise Throws All the Shade

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.

“Boycott Beyoncé,” read the marketing genius’ official tour merchandise.

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…)

Lady Gaga and Elton John’s Love Bravery Collab for Macy’s Is Not for the Faint of Style, but It’s Got Heart

Elton John and Lady Gaga collaborate on a line for Macy's.

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.
