The Givenchy fashion show is a hot ticket no matter what the season, but this month, the show is going to be bigger than ever. The French fashion house is showing its Spring 2016 collection during New York Fashion Week and it turns out, everyone is invited – and we mean everyone. In addition to the usual crowd of journalists, buyers, editors and celebrities, Givenchy is inviting 1200 “regular people” to this year’s show, which has us going from excited to welcome Givenchy to NYC to absolutely terrified.

The show is set to take place on September 11 and the house is releasing 820 tickets on a first come first serve basis to the public at The tickets will be up for grabs starting 10 a.m. on Wednesday. There will be 280 tickets set aside for NYC fashion school students and faculty, and 100 tickets will go to neighbors of the soon-to-be revealed venue, probably as a thank you for putting up with all the commotion.

Needless to say, it sounds like the show is going to be a veritable zoo. Combine the Givenchy name and popularity with the possibility of a Kimye sighting, tired editors and the mass of people just excited to be at a fashion show and you’ve got a recipe for confusion.

Amber Valletta Takes Us Back to the 90s on Vogue Korea’s September Cover (Forum Buzz)

Fashion magazines have served their fair share of 90s flashbacks this month. From Natasha Poly‘s Vogue Russia cover to Amber Valletta starring on Vogue Korea‘s moody, grungy and nonchalant September 2015 cover. The current face of Anthony Vaccarello was shot by Scott Trindle on location at Coney Island and rocks a little black dress styled by Ye Young Kim. To finish the evident 90s-inspiration off, the iconic supermodel showed off a blunt hairstyle as she commands our attention via Trindle’s lens.

Our forums were left divided over the cover. “My goodness this is depressing: Is this Vogue North Korea? And that’s what this issue resembles in spirit to me. No energy, no excitement, no joy, no fashion statement,” ranted Phuel immediately.

“Looks like something lifted from the 90s, there’s nothing current about this cover. I wish fashion, and in fact pop-culture, would just leave the 90s be!” added Benn98.

Also underwhelmed was Nomar, who disapproved, “Could’ve been executed so much better.”

“I like the image because it gives me ‘Amber in the 90s shot by [Peter] Lindbergh’ vibes but I don’t think it’s cover-worthy,” discredited kokobombon, as a very dim light started to appear at the end of the tunnel.

Nepenthes soon lifted the mood, admiring, “I like it. It feels very classic and laid back.”

In agreement was justaguy. “I actually like the cover too and love that it’s Amber!” he replied.

“I love this cover, super chic! Amber looks great,” raved a very much satisfied Emmanuelle.

What’s your opinion? Are you over being reminded of the 90s? Vent here.
