Following in the footsteps of up-and-coming designers Jean-Pierre Braganza and Eudon Choi, Zoe Jordan is next in line to take part in River Island‘s Design Forum project. The Zoe Jordan girl embodies subtle sophistication with natural confidence and the designer aims to infuse her distinctive clean aesthetic into an 11-piece capsule collection.

We’ve enjoyed several of the London-born designer’s London Fashion Week presentations over the previous seasons and she was greatly missed by the Brits after choosing to show her Fall 2015 collection at New York Fashion Week instead. Her River Island collaboration, however, marks a move back to British soil as it’ll launch with a short film as part of the British Fashion Council’s Fashion Film event during the September schedule.

As always with a River Island collab, price points won’t break the bank as they range between £35 and £250. Giving you plenty of options regarding just how much you’d like to invest in this limited-edition collection. So, set a reminder in your diaries for September when it will also be available to buy online. We’ve been really impressed with previous Design Forum collections, so we can’t wait to see exactly what Jordan has in store for us.

Who run the world? Beyoncé, people. The singer has inspired a 78-storey skyscraper going up in Melbourne’s CBD, because there ain’t nothing this girl can’t put her flavour on. Wuh, uh, oh!

NME reports that the Premier Tower, consisting of retail space, apartments and hotel rooms, will have serious curves that have Beyoncé written all over it.  “We will reveal that the form does pay homage to something more aesthetic – we’re going to trust you’ve seen the music video for Beyoncé’s Ghost,” architecture firm Elenberg Fraser’s press release explains of the building.

Cara Delevingne Reacts to ‘Slashie’ Label, Reveals Charlize Theron as Inspiration

Although Cara Delevingne has now sadly left Australia, the bushy-browed beauty has opened up about the direction she wants her career to go in, what life’s been like living with those statement brows, and she feels about the term “slashie” while she’s been in the land down under.

Introduced on The Project as an “ultimate slashie” because of her new supermodel-slash-movie-star title, Cara admitted the term makes her feel a little confused. “This ‘slashie’ thing is killing me right now,” she said. “It’s only in Australia that people are like, ‘So you’re the queen of the slashie,’ and I’m like, ‘What does that mean? Queen of the slash? Huh?'”

Perhaps she’s uneasy with the label because she treats modelling and acting very separately. “I literally feel like it’s a different part of my life now,” the Paper Towns star said. “I feel like I’ve kind of been born again, I know that sounds really weird, but, honestly, acting I’ve wanted to do so badly, as soon as I got the opportunity I was like, “I’m here! Take me! I’ll do anything!'” (more…)

Lara Stone Stars on Two Fabulously Tacky Covers for UK Vogue (Forum Buzz)

U.K. Vogue‘s July offering with Stella Tennant basically bombed on our forums and the dull cover will (thankfully) soon vanish from newsstands, making way for a set of flashy, fabulously tacky covers featuring a blonder than usual Lara Stone. Photographed by Mario Testino, the current face of Kurt Geiger posed before a white studio backdrop wearing glitzy designs from J.W.Anderson (left) and Versace (right).

Forum members flocked to the thread within seconds. “Finally! I couldn’t stand that Stella cover anymore. I don’t really know what cover I like the best. The cat kind of annoys me. I like the Versace one but her pose is not the best, she looks uncomfortable,” Oxymore described right away.

“I like the first cover. I sort of get that she’s meant to look like a socialite/Donatella-esque person. I kind of like it. Least they attempted something this month, and I’m all for Lara on the cover. It’s a bit of a waste of her but still, let’s be thankful it doesn’t look like a grey day in January like last month’s,” added honeycombchild.

“This is SO bad it’s good. I think it’s meant to be tacky, and let’s be honest, when was the last time they dared to style their cover into something not boring?” appreciated Miss Dalloway.

Chanelcouture09 showed both covers some enthusiasm too. “I love both covers! I’m surprised how much I like the J.W.Anderson cover over the Versace cover. I also love the blonder hair on Lara,” he noted.

“I’m surprised. I hate U.K. Vogue and I don’t like Lara but they somehow made it work and this is cool,” admitted a surprised gossiping.

Also in the mood was tigerrouge: “I like the tackiness of it, finally a U.K. Vogue cover that feels alive, if not to everyone’s tastes. A few decent editorials, some new season ads, and my only problem with the issue would be choosing which cover to get.”

Miu Miu Releases First-Ever Fragrance

Calling all fragrance fanatics: Miu Miu just announced its first-ever scent, aptly named Miu Miu. Mark your calendars, as this is one chic perfume you don’t want to miss out on. 

Miuccia Prada was hands-on the entire way, making sure both the bottle and scent were perfectly in line with the brand. So what exactly does the fragrance smell like? According to WWD, the scent contains a “lily of the valley note, made by mixing jasmine with rose absolute and some green notes.” Akigalawood adds woodsy, peppery accents. Givaudan perfumer Daniela Andrier, who helped create the scent, used a Miu Miu dress from Fall 2011 with embroidered lilies of the valley as inspiration. 

The brand chose actress Stacy Martin as the face of the fragrance. “Stacy was a very obvious choice because she already belongs to the Miu Miu family, having appeared in two of its fashion campaigns,” said Caroline Javoy, group vice president of marketing for the label at Coty Inc., Miu Miu’s fragrance licensee. “She is an uncommon talent and an uncommon beauty because at the same time she is very timeless and modern. She’s like the Miu Miu girl: She’s young, elegant and graceful, but has a bit of a dark side, which makes her very special and gives her an edge.”

Miu Miu eau de parfum will debut in August in Harrods in the U.K. and exclusively at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman in the States from September through December.
