Nicole Kidman’s Vogue Cover for August 2015 Is a Major Disappointment (Forum Buzz)

We’re forever receiving tidbits via our popular Cover Rumor Thread and with each and every rumor, the wait for the final result to surface feels like an eternity. Thankfully for us die-hard Nicole Kidman fans, U.S. Vogue‘s August 2015 cover dropped over the weekend, generating mixed feedback on the forums. The Aussie actress, who’s promoting Queen of the Desert, was photographed by Patrick Demarchelier for the cover image while Peter Lindbergh captured Nicole’s cinematic feature. On the cover, Nicole wears a backless Marc Jacobs dress and serves up some major hair envy.

“I have such a soft spot for Nicole, it’s a great cover shot. The angle is perfect!” raved Miss Dalloway, getting us off on a high note.

“It’s classic Nicole and I love it! Much better than her recent ELLE cover,” [Piece Of Me] added in agreement.

Yet the cover failed to impress everyone else. “God this magazine is boring! Yes, Nicole looks nice, but the pose is imperfect. I can’t stand their fonts, Marie Claire is more exciting,” Srdjan discredited.

JennaaMonroe wasn’t projecting much love, either, writing, “Yawn, boring. It has a lovely feel to it but it’s quite bland and I feel like I’ve seen it a thousand times.”

“Always lovely to see Nicole, but the cover isn’t exciting at all, again the usual stuff,” echoed Nymphaea.

Bertrando3 was quick to point out some flaws, too. “This is VERY boring indeed. She looks sad and tired and the cover reads ‘happier than ever’ — good one! The pose is the same as Sandra Bullock indeed and wearing the same brand…” he ranted.

Does Nicole’s cover make you want to rush out and purchase a copy? Join our discussion here.

You’ll Never Guess Which Actress Was in the Running to Play Cher in ‘Clueless’ over 20 Years Ago

It’s been 20 years since the 1995 cult classic Clueless hit theaters, but you wouldn’t be able to tell if you looked at some of the film’s stars today – like Alicia Silverstone and Paul Rudd – who have failed to age since the film’s release. But if you thought you knew everything you needed to know about the film, think again. The Hollywood Reporter chatted with Clueless director Amy Heckerling, who touched on a few insider details on the film’s casting.

Alicia Silverstone will always be remembered for her role in the film, but another blond-haired actress we know and love also had a shot at the role. According to Heckerling, Reese Witherspoon was in the running to play Cher. “She had such a strong personality and sense of self,” she said. “[But] she would have to act Cher — Alicia was Cher.”  Also up for a part was Dave Chapelle, who read to play Donald Faison’s role of Murray in the movie. Though Chapelle was certainly hilarious, she thought that he was just too grown to play the part in the way that Faison could. “[Chappelle] was just amazing — he was such a mensch,” Heckerling said. “I needed somebody who was really innocent, a goofy kid.”

The film came together perfectly with the cast that was ultimately chosen, but we can definitely see how both Witherspoon and Chapelle could have been in the running for those roles.

It mightn’t have been the Australian premiere of Paper Towns on Saturday, July 18, but it sure felt like it with the overflow of Zimmermann pieces on the LA screening’s red carpet. While it wasn’t too much of a shock to see home-grown model Nicole Trunfio sporting the Aussie label, spotting Kendall Jenner in the Esplanade collection was the best kind of surprise.

The reality-star-cum-model rocked a burgundy keyhole blouse with a buttoned double thigh-split skirt, both by Zimmermann, finished off with gold lace-up heels and a tousled pony. You might remember Montana Cox wearing the dress version of this ensemble, which was also a complete winner. (more…)
