When Joan Smalls was crowned the #1 model of the world by, people argued that she did not live up to her #1 status because she could not follow up her stellar Fall 2012 and Spring 2013 campaign seasons with another particularly strong season. But it looks like the Puerto Rican model is finally having her moment. Not only is she the first high fashion model in a long time to cover US Elle, she also landed the cover of the latest issue of Elle France and is adding another Vogue cover to her resume. On Vogue Germany January 2014, Joan is wearing Prada and is looking better than ever. The cover was shot by photographers Luigi and Daniele + Iango and marks the model’s 9th Vogue cover in total.

“This is the Best Cover I have ever seen of Joan. OMG! I love it. She continues to get better!!” gushed fashionlover2001, who shared the cover on the tFS forums.

“Wow, this girl is on fire! And I agree its the most perfect cover shot of her as of yet,” remarked Miss Dalloway 

Fans of the model were equally as excited about her beautiful cover for Elle France.

“Joan is having such a fashion moment right now!!” exclaimed fashionlover2001. 

To which valliaddict added, “YES!! Keep them covers coming!”

Not a bad way for Ms. Smalls to start the new year in fashion. And yes please, keep all the great work coming!

Limited-Edition Outerwear: The Ideal Gift for the Discernible Man

Just in time to answer the call of your man’s Christmas wish list (and hopefully bump that new X-Box down a few places), The Bay has teamed up with a who’s-who of designers to create a new, exclusive collection of limited-edition men’s outerwear coats.

Vawk Land Thumb

 Philip Sparks, Sunny Fong (Vawk) and Ken Chow (Krane) are the talented trend-setters behind the collaborative creations, with each coat showcasing the different aesthetics and points of view of the Canadian designers. Applying a modern twist on classic styles, Philip Sparks presents a Double Breasted Town Coat, Krane offers a Modern Slim Peacoat, and Vawk (do also check out Sunny’s eBay Canada collaboration for women i.e. yourself) has crafted a Slim Fit Quilted Car Coat.


The perfect trend coat is often a difficult find for fashionable fellas, but this sharply-tailored capsule collection ticks all the right boxes. Each piece retails for $495, exclusively at The Bay, but my favourite has to be the timeless Krane jacket. It’s bound to make any winter month a holly, jolly one, but what do you think? Which coat would you wrap and hide under the Christmas tree?

InStyle January 2014: It’s Britney!



If you've just woken up from a months-long Ambien trip, let me fill you in on Britney Spears' latest doings: The pop star recently turned 32 years old, released a new album (to mostly terrible reviews) and is gearing up for the debut of her Las Vegas residency. Also, her song "Work Bitch" played as the soundtrack at the Prada Spring 2014 runway show (Miuccia Prada has the Midas Touch for cultural relevance). Yes, the formerly fallen star has emerged from her twenties as a confident, powerful woman. Your inner 6th grader must be so proud. Put on your flared jeans, baby — Britney Spears is back!

In that vein, here she is on the cover of InStyle's January 2014 Issue, wearing Dior. "This Is YOUR Year!" reads the accompanying caption, speaking at once to the viewer and to Britney herself, who appears happy, smiling and slathered in Photoshop effects. Our year, indeed.

If the already released January covers are any indication for what direction magazines will be following in the new year, then it’s safe to assume we will finally see more models covering major magazines again. In addition to Joan Smalls on US Elle and Cara Delevingne on UK Vogue, we also got an ever-so-beautiful Christy Turlington appearing on UK Harper’s Bazaar. One of the original supermodels, Turlington delivers a “perfect 90s cover,” according to tFS forum member Srdjan. Photographer Alexi Lubomirski shot two covers with Ms. Turlington for this issue, a black/white cover for subscribers (pictured above) and another one for the newsstand version of the magazine (pictured below).

Opinions on the tFS forums on both covers were divided.

“One of my all time favorites, and it still feels good to see her name on the covers of magazines! THIS is how you open the year, gorgeous effortless shot of her for [the subscribers cover],” commented Miss Dalloway

“Christy looks stunning! Interesting play with shadows and lighting on the subscribers cover,” added mikel

But vogue28, who received the subscribers cover, was one of the few members who preferred the newsstand version. He wrote, “Must admit that I'm not terribly fond of the subs cover. The lighting looks horrendous and makes Turlington's skin color look completely inaccurate. It's crossed the line of being something different for me. The newsstand cover, however, is glorious. I'll definitely be heading out and picking up a newsstand copy.”

I think Christy looks gorgeous on both cover, but the classic 90s feel of the newsstand edition is what really wins me over here. Which cover do you prefer?
