Forums Freak out over Star Wars Cast on Vanity Fair’s June 2015 Cover (Forum Buzz)

For our forum members, Vanity Fair has never been considered a cutting-edge fashion publication. Although we were thrilled to see Sofia Vergara on the magazine’s May issue, the Star Wars-themed cover for June falls flat. Annie Leibovitz photographed actors Harrison Ford, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega exclusively for Vanity Fair and it isn’t sitting well with forum members.

Vanity Fair June 2015 Star Wars Cast by Annie Leibovitz


“Looks more like Empire or another movie magazine to me. Not the best composition and art direction either – it looks too cluttered…Daisy is the only one who stands out here. Overall this shot doesn’t create any anticipation and seems strictly for fan boys,” Benn98 ranted the moment the cover surfaced.

“Horrible, really bad image to use for the cover!! It doesn’t work,” echoed Miss Dalloway.

Sharing the same sentiments was GivenchyHomme: “It’s very Entertainment Weekly. I don’t like it.”

Forum member justguy certainly wasn’t showing enthusiasm either, writing, “Same ol’ Leibovitz cover, no creativity or substance to it.”

Also feeling disappointed was MON: “What a huge let down from last month’s superb cover. The potential wasted bothers me. One of the most anticipated movies and you deliver this. The text layout bothers me also. Too big and too cluttered. It swallowed the entire cast.”

“Such a huge possibility for Annie to impress the fashion crowd with her great sci-fi taste and we get this boring and lifeless cover. Nonetheless, as a Star Wars geek, I feel curious for more images,” anticipated Legolas.

Vanity Fair‘s June issue will be with you May 12, on selected newsstands. Will you rush out to collect a copy? Drop us a comment here.

Royal Baby number two is finally here! This weekend, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a baby girl, adding the newest member to the Royal Family. Weighing 8 pounds, three ounces, the princess was born on Saturday, May 2. According to reports, the baby was born just under three hours after the Duchess arrived at St. Mary’s Hospital and the family left the hospital just over 12 hours after their arrival. 

Kate Middleton and Prince William presented the new princess outside the Lindo Wing, Kate dressed in a white Jenny Packham dress printed with gradient effect yellow flowers cascading downwards. Middleton also wore a Jenny Packham dress (a light blue polka-dotted number) when she presented Prince George to the public shortly after his birth. 

A name for the new baby has not yet been announced, though some people are putting their money on Alice or Charlotte. We’re sure we’ll soon be hearing from the palace with an update.

UPDATE:  She has a name! Kensington Palace has tweeted the baby’s name, Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. The young princess shares names with her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and Prince William’s mother, the late Princess Diana.

It’s official. We can’t keep up with Justin Bieber. We continue to have suspicions about him and Kendall Jenner, as well as him and Hailey Baldwin, and now we’re second-guessing his friendly relationship with Australian supermodel Shanina Shaik.

Justin spent his weekend in Las Vegas to support his friend Floyd Mayweather in his fight against Manny Pacquiao, celebrating with a pre-fight Rehab pool party at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. He took 24-year-old Shanina along for the ride.

Both Justin and Shanina have posted a picture together to their Instagrams, which sees the Calvin Klein model pulling her in close to him. “Thank you Vegas and @justinbieber for a great weekend,” Shanina wrote to her Instagram alongside the cosy shot. (more…)

Aussie Celebs Support Carrie Bickmore with #BeaniesForBrainCancer


If you stayed up last night watching the 2015 Logie Awards live, you probably cried big-baby style, like us, when Carrie Bickmore delivered her acceptance speech for the gold Logie. Using the opportunity to raise awareness of something very close to her heart, The Project star slapped on a beanie to pay tribute to her late husband, Greg Lange, who passed away from brain cancer in 2010.

“Over 10 years I watched him suffer multiple seizures a day, lose feeling down one side of his body,” Carrie said in her speech. “He had his little 3-year-old push him around in a wheelchair because he couldn’t walk anymore. He was an incredibly brave man. He was a great dad, he was a great husband, he was a great brother and he was a great friend. But he shouldn’t have had to go through that, no one should have to go through that.” (more…)

Your First Look at Cara Delevingne and Margot Robbie’s Characters in Suicide Squad

If you thought Jared Leto as The Joker was scary, wait until you see the rest of the characters in Warner Brothers’ forthcoming DC Comics-inspired film Suicide Squad. Aussies Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney are among the creepy cast, plus Will Smith, Tom Hardy and fashion fave Cara Delevingne.

Director David Ayer released the image today via Twitter, revealing the aesthetic we can expect from the film when it’s released in August 2016. Playing Harley Quinn, Margot completely transforms into an ice-blonde, dip-dyed piggy-tail wearing character who looks like she’s been spending a little too much time with Courtney Love. Cara, on the other hand, is almost completely unrecognisable as Enchantress, with long-black hair and a face that’s reminiscent of The Grudge. (more…)
