Karlie Kloss Serves Supermodel Realness on Vogue China’s October Cover (Forum Buzz)

We made no attempt to hide the fact that Vogue China‘s September cover was tragic, failing to impress with a handful of Chinese celebrities. Now, as the title releases its October edition, we welcome a model with open arms to the front cover. Chinese Vogue tapped none other than Karlie Kloss for its new offering, who is making quite the rounds on magazine covers lately. The current face of Versace was shot by Mario Testino, giving us a perfectly gorgeous image. What more could we want?

The cover, however, left our forum members with mixed reactions. “Nice to see Karlie, and the cover looks OK, although a bit dated. What’s with the big hair? VC should really lay off Testino for a while,” expressed an underwhelmed Benn98 as soon as the cover struck.

“Yikes! The cropping is all sorts of wrong. You wanted big hair but you crop some of it off? I am also not liking the color scheme. Too much nude colors that make the cover look dead. The yellow looks out of place too. Vogue China seriously needs to shake it up. Stray away from Mario and get photographers that will revitalize the magazine,” ranted MON.

“She looks too Photoshopped for my taste. What’s up with VC lately, they aren’t doing so well…” KateTheGreatest stated.

Things started to shape up as anlabe32 declared, “Not bad actually. I quite like how it looks. Powerful but not in your face.”

Miss Dalloway was certainly a fan, writing, “Gorgeous! Just a bit crowded with too much text, but she holds such command in this shot it’s really great.”

“I like it. Classic supermodel cover. Karlie looks beautiful,” admired MyNameIs.

According to Pantone Color Institute executive director Leatrice Eiseman, the hues for spring are to keep us all a little more relaxed in the face of our busy, modern chaotic lifestyle. “The fact that technology has gotten so overwhelming and so 24/7 has really created a great part of the need for these comforting, softer colors. Technology plays a huge part in people feeling like they want to stop the world and get off,” she tells WWD. On tap, there is Rose Quartz, Peach Echo, Serenity, Snorkel Blue, Buttercup, Limpet Shell, Lilac Gray, Fiesta, Iced Coffee and Green Flash.

Rose Quartz was the color most used by designers, a soft baby pink that gives us chiller vibes just looking at it.

Lisa Hyde’s The Bachelor S3, Ep 14 Low-Down: ‘We Get to Watch Him Squirm’

Sam finally gets to meet the parents, and we get to watch him squirm as the parents and siblings grill him with questions. Last night I went to town on the fashion, but tonight let’s focus on the families and see who has made the biggest impression on Sam.

First up is Heather, who is from Queensland. Right from the beginning Heather has stuck by her word in wanting to build a friendship before moving forward and we have all questioned whether or not that has steered Sam in the wrong direction. I guess she has gotten this far, so she must be doing something right.

Although Heather has been honest and upfront, she still sometimes comes across a little bit of a closed book, so introducing Sam to the people closest to her will really help him figure Heather out that little bit more. As Heather talks about her background and her father, I realise she really is such a strong confident woman. (more…)

WATCH: Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon Dancing to ‘Single Ladies’ Is the Greatest Thing You’ll See Today

The US Open just delivered more than a killer forehand, and we have Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon and Beyoncé to thank for that.

The pair were spotted in the stands during the Men’s Singles Quarterfinals match between Richard Gasquet of France and Roger Federer on September 9 when they started getting down, or up, rather, to Queen Bey’s “Single Ladies”.

Wuh-uh-oh, we don’t know if you’ll see anything more brilliant than these two repping the ring-flashing Bey wave and alternating downward fist pumps today.

If you like it, then, well, you’re welcome.
