Fans hoping to relive that epic moment when Rihanna hit the Victoria’s Secret runway in 2012 will be disappointed this year. The popstar pulled out of the lineup just days before taping, reportedly to work on her upcoming album.

Despite the shakeup, there will be no shortage of entertainment at this year’s show. Ellie Goulding will join previously announced performers Selena Gomez and The Weeknd, Gigi Hadid will walk in the show for the first time ever and Lily Aldridge is slated to wear the $2 million fantasy bra.

As for Rihanna, her fans will gladly sacrifice her Victoria’s Secret performance for the chance to get #R8 sooner. Fingers crossed for a holiday release.

Watch: Celebrate Movember with 100 Years of Men’s Hairstyles in 2 Minutes

As our current obsession with full beards proves, men enjoy hair trends too. In fact, in the last 100 years, men’s hairstyles have transformed dramatically, getting longer and fuller with each passing decade. In a new video for Watchcut, model/hearthrob Samuel Orson demonstrates the evolution of hairstyles from greased down hair and middle parts in the 20s to 50s pompadours to the free-spirited long hair of the 70s and beyond.

Gear Up for Movember with 30 Bearded Male Models ]

While we’re partial to the glorious man bun of the 2010s, Orson says his favorite decade was the 90s “just because I idolize Kurt Cobain and Dave Grohl and it felt good to [look like] a mix of them.” Orson, who usually wears a man bun and beard, agreed to cut his hair for the clip. Since the WatchCut team wanted to use Orson’s natural hair without extensions, they shot the decades out of sequence from the longest hair look to the shortest.

Debuting just in time for #Movember, the clip is a collaboration with The Movember Foundation, a global charity created to raise awareness about mens health. Feel free to contribute to the cause by making Orson your #MCM every week. You know, for charity.

Kylie Jenner’s Highly-Anticipated ELLE Canada Cover Is Here (Forum Buzz)

ELLE Canada did not exactly hide the fact that it scored an upcoming cover with Kylie Jenner back in September, having splashed behind-the-scenes images across its various social media platforms, asking readers to vote for their favorite cover shot. Giving us two images to choose from for the December cover, the first was a conventional shot of the 18-year-old wearing a flashy Zuhair Murad jumpsuit. Unfortunately, the worst shot (in our opinion) was selected by the public with the youngest Kardashian/Jenner sister wearing Kuwait-based designer LaBourjoisie. Captured in black and white, Kylie playfully poses before the lens of Canadian ELLE regular Max Abadian on the final cover, which was unveiled earlier today.

Sure to send shockwaves through social media, the Jenner girls aren’t exactly our forum members’ favorite models. “She looks like she’s 30,” criticized Oxymore within seconds of the cover surfacing, making it quite clear she wasn’t a fan and no doubt about to set the tone for commentary to follow.

“Looks more like a Las Vegas showgirl, or perhaps it’s the outfit. With the unsettling news of Flare Canada in mind, I’ll not hate on this too much. Probably it will sell loads,” shared Benn98. (more…)

How celebrities get their pre-baby bodies back just months after giving birth will always baffle us, and is something that we usually put down to superhuman genes. 

But Aussie model Nicole Trunfio, who gave birth to her first child, Zion, in January this year, let us in on a little secret at the 2015 ELLE Style Awards last week, where everyone was amazed by her post-baby physique. 

“I wore a wrap and binded my stomach straight after giving birth, 24/7 for three months,” she told E! Australia’s The Hype, revealing she took a page from the Ancient Egyptians and basically mummified herself.

However, Nicole has also revealed in an Instagram post that intense boxing workouts have helped her stay toned too, saying, “Thanks to BOXING and determination I finally have my mind and body back after pregnancy and #postpartum baby brain (yes, it is a thing).”

Who run the world? Melbourne Cup crowned its first ever female winner today as 30-year-old jockey Michelle Payne and her horse Prince of Penzance took out the annual prize.

Prince of Penzance won first place ahead of Max Dynamite and Criterion for the $6 million track event, while Fame Game started a firm favourite for the race ahead of Trip to Paris and Preferment, in front of a huge crowd at Melbourne’s Flemington Racecourse. 

“Everyone else, get stuffed, because women can do anything and we can beat the world,” Michelle said after the race. The central Victoria native entered racing at 15 years of age, upholding the family legacy as the eighth Payne to do so, and has been dreaming of this moment since she was a little girl.

“You do it every year. This is everybody’s dream as a jockey in Australia and now probably the world. And I dreamed about it from when I was five,” she explained, noting that he school friends used to tease her when she’d express her goal of winning the Melbourne Cup. “They always give me a bit of grief about it and I can’t believe we’ve done it.”

Congrats on making Melbourne Cup history, Michelle!
