Karlie Kloss Looks So Effortlessly Cool on Flare Magazine’s September Cover Shoot (Forum Buzz)

Is Karlie Kloss set to dominate your local newsstand this month? It’s certainly starting to look that way as Karlie already has the current cover of Glamour under her belt and now fronts the September 2015 issue of Flare. The statuesque beauty participated in a classic studio sitting with photographer Nino Muñoz behind the lens, with Katie Mossman on styling duties. Karlie shows us just how it’s done, looking effortlessly cool wearing a crisp white shirt teamed with a pair of blue jeans.

Members of our forums couldn’t contain their praise for long. “She is everywhere this month. Love the cover with the white shirt. This is much better than the US Glamour cover,” stated dfl-001 right away.

In agreement was MON: “Stunning! Beyond beautiful!! So much better than her Glamour cover!”

“QUEEN!” hailed Slater, returning to the thread moments later to add, “Karlie is such an icon. She has left an impact on high fashion that will be remembered!”

Benn98 was quick to reply, “I know, and quite right too, if you ask me. She’s finally getting the recognition she deserves. I like this cover, she looks very approachable. Hope it sells for Canadians.”

Also full of admiration and appreciation was blueorchid: “I’m always glad when Flare manages to get a model on their cover, rather than the third rate American actresses they typically get.”

“Love this cover! Very classic!” said Nepenthes, before justaguy echoed, “Very nice! Simple, clean & love the crisp white shirt…classic!”

Vanity Fair has released its list of the world’s best-dressed people and, while you’ll see plenty of the usual suspects (European royalty, Jenna Lyons), there were a few surprising additions. Topping the list for the ladies (and beating out Taylor Swift) is the U.K.’s first lady Samantha Cameron. ABT Principal Dancer Misty Copeland earned the number three slot in the top 10, followed by HRH the Countess of Wessex, the ever impeccable Amal Clooney, Rihanna, Charlotte Casiraghi, HM Queen Letizia of Spain, investment manager Mellody Hobson and Tiffany & Co.’s design director Francesca Amfitheatrof. 

You can count Stavros Niarchos III, Jonathan Ive, HRH Prince Harry and Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson among some of the best dressed guys of 2015. A few noted names on the list of the best of the Hollywood set were Eddie Redmayne, Emma StoneFan Bingbing, Emma Watson, Michael Fassbender and Diane Kruger. For couples, Benedict Cumberbatch and his wife Sophie Hunter top the list with Thom Browne and Andrew Bolton following the Hollywood couple. Also included are Matt Bomer and Simon Halls.

Azzedine Alaïa, Jenna Lyons and FKA twigs made the “originals” list and Caroline Issa, Zac Posen, design darlings Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow, Victoria Beckham and more round out the list of best-dressed professionals. 

While we were happy to see that a few people we thought should have been included last year were added to this year’s list, there are still some we think Vanity Fair forgot. Below, a few celebrities that we think should definitely have been included for 2015. (more…)

The online pop-up store launches on 7 August, boasting a cool 24-piece limited-edition pre-collection featuring an assortment of items, from silk scarves to leather jackets, ranging from £20 to around £1500. Most excitingly, all of the pieces have been hand painted or dyed by Barrow herself and it doesn’t get much more limited-edition than that. Her goal was to create a collection of art that you could wear and it was predominantly inspired by ancient erotic art with the myths of promiscuous Cleopatra and sensual French dance hall girls prevailing as key influences behind her drawings.   (more…)

Vogue Italia Recruits Fresh New Talent for Its August 2015 Issue (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Italia‘s August 2015 cover confirms that Steven Meisel‘s presence at the magazine won’t be consistent in the near future. Meisel photographed last month’s hit after his infamous departure and now, the Italian fashion bible introduces some new talent with its August edition by welcoming an array of photographers. Vincent van de Wijngaard shot Mariacarla Boscono in the wilderness for his debut sitting at the publication and with “The Now Image Makers” splashed across the front cover, we suspect Vogue Italia means business with its fresh new recruits.

Forum members couldn’t wait to share their opinions. “That is one beautiful cover and editorial! I love the vibe. I have to keep my eye on Vincent van de Wijngaard. Very promising talent. A welcome change for Vogue Italia,” Style Savvy approved.

“This time they got it right! This is what you do when you don’t have Meisel,” raved Lola701.

In agreement was [Piece Of Me]: “I’m always happy to see Mariacarla. And while I do like Meisel a lot, I’m always excited to see some fresh talent on the pages of VI. Vincent certainly delivered.”

TheoG shared the same sentiments, echoing, “This is a welcome idea, before I was in doubt that VI would be able to carry an issue without Meisel but if they plan on introducing these image makers into their publication, then Meisel for every single issue isn’t necessary. Love Meisel but he’s not the only photographer who can carry VI.”

The cover certainly seems to hold promise for sales as mistress_f informed us, “This will be the first Vogue Italia issue I buy in ages. Mariacarla looks like a goddess (as usual) and the main editorial is amazing.”

“Wow this issue feels so fresh!” credited Nepenthes.
