Michelle Phan has found herself in some legal trouble in recent months. She’s getting sued by Ultra Records for allegedly using the music of its dance music artists in her makeup tutorial videos without permission. Phan’s people maintained that the music was not used without consent and now, they are firing back at Ultra with a counterclaim saying so. 

Phan claims that she contacted Ultra Records Senior New Media Manager Jason Kilgore in 2009, requesting the green light to use music from one of the company’s artists, Kaskade. According to Phan, Kilgore wrote back that the label would be “more than happy” to grant Phan permission. She says that she struck up a deal with Ultra, allowing her to use music from the label’s artists, as long as she added the proper credits and provided iTunes links to any of the music used. By suing her, she says Ultra isn’t holding up its part of the deal. Ultra agreed to not file any Content ID claims against her.  (more…)

You had better stop what you’re doing and sit yourself down: Gemma Ward just opened Prada‘s Spring 2015 runway show in Milan. Yes, it’s true — she’s back! The baby-faced Aussie beauty turned heads as she made her way through the piles of purple colored sand which made up Prada’s runway setting. After an eight-year hiatus from the modeling industry to concentrate on an acting career, Gemma set not only Miuccia Prada‘s show ablaze but our forums as well.

tFSers cannot contain their excitement regarding Gemma’s major comeback this catwalk season, with almost five pages of discussion rapidly spawning with elated fans. “Holt sh*t Gemma just opened Prada!!!!!” commented orchidee, being the first to acknowledge Ward’s appearance inside her dedicated thread.

“I’m in shock since I saw her! Now that’s a proper major comeback!!!!!!!” continued Tinna.

FaithAkiyama was quick to join the discussion: “Wow just wow. That was one epic moment!” she exclaimed.

Also happy about the comeback was mackos who wrote, “Oh God. I’m in tears right now. Whatever happens next, THIS is the moment of the season. Period.”

“I can recognize that walk stance from miles away. There can only be one who walks like that. Welcome back!!!!!!!” raves Flashbang.

Luxx began to look ahead and questioned Gemma’s next move: “And so begins a new era of Gemma. Which cover do you think she’ll get? It’s only a matter of time!” she questioned.

“Welcome back Gemma! Honestly, I am so shocked! In a good way! How did she get to Milan without anyone seeing her?! She looked amazing at Prada and you can really see that she’s matured into a stunning young lady, I always forget she’s still only 26. I’m sure we’ll see more of her, not as much as we used to but I am beyond happy. This made my day,” wrote an ecstatic Elite13.

Lara Stone Impresses Forum Members on Harper’s Bazaar Germany Cover (Forum Buzz)

A cozy and comfortable-looking Lara Stone is Harper’s Bazaar Germany’s October 2014 cover star. The magazine tapped the Dutch beauty for its latest cover story and enlisted Kacper Kasprzyk to shoot the blond bombshell for both the front cover and for some stunning portraits, which can be found inside the issue (and of course, in our thread here). Stylist to the shoot, Jay Massacret, opted to showcase the model in a chunky knit sweater from Celine with her effortlessly coiffed locks cascading down one side of her face, making for a fabulous cover.

Our forum members are more than happy with the results. “Really, this is quite pretty. There’s a bit of post production work going on around her face, making it seem slightly ghoulish, but the overall image and color scheme are perfect. Looking forward to her ed!” commented Benn98.

“That’s almost what I like best about it – it’s a twist on the typical ‘blonde beauty’ because there’s something haunting about her face,” replied tigerrouge.

“That’s two for two for German Bazaar and I’m hoping they keep it up! It’s a beautiful portrait and they’re making the sweater look so comfortable and luxurious, and that’s the point, no?” wrote ash92.

“When I saw the tittle I was afraid it’s gonna be Carine Roitfeld‘s work from her Sept editorial and thank God it’s a new shot!” raved fluxxx.

“Lara can do no wrong. She looks so charming and beautiful!” added an elated Nepenthes.

“This is what I call [a] head shot perfect for [an] autumn cover,” proclaimed a satisfied GlamorousBoy.

With thanks to forum member Oxymore, the fashion editorials from the issue can be viewed inside the thread (including the fabulous cover story!). Check them out and share your own opinion here.
