Mica Arganaraz Finally Gets the Cover of Vogue Paris — and It’s a Mess (Forum Buzz)

Some of our forum members put two and two together a few weeks back and conjured up a theory that Mica Arganaraz was on the Greek island of Mykonos shooting for Vogue Paris. Proven right, the Argentine model stars on the magazine’s recently unveiled November cover. It was only a matter of time before Mica graced French Vogue since she’s rapidly become a favorite of Emmanuelle Alt and has already been featured inside the magazine on numerous occasions. Shot by Mario Testino, Mica wears Atelier Versace, but the look is far too busy for us to even acknowledge anything else.

Forum members made their minds up quickly. “What’s that font? What’s that pink? They could have done something so much better with that dress. In Mykonos there are so many beautiful spots with the gorgeous sea and the white houses. That blue dress would have looked amazing with the sea in the background. Total mess,” proclaimed Oxymore.

“You could not find a busier, messier cover,” announced an unimpressed t-rex.

Sharing the same sentiments was MyNameIs: “Can you find me a worse cover? Pro tip: you can’t. This must be the worst cover I have ever seen on a legit fashion magazine. Yikes.”

Nymphaea agreed, adding, “Really ugly cover, wouldn’t even enjoy the pic if it was only in an editorial. The dress looks awful waist up, too much going on on the whole cover – feels like a mess and you don’t see anything from Mica, only some limbs and hair.”

Also full of complaints was jescajade. “VP tried to make a fun energetic cover, it’s loud okay but soooo dated and far too messy. Every issue you notice more and more how hard the magazine is struggling with its identity,” she noted.

“And there goes another Vogue Paris, destroyed by Testino. I’m really quitting Vogue. All of them,” confessed EstefaniaAbaddon.

Hopefully, there’s some decent editorial content inside. Await the content and join the conversation here.

“We’re seeing that pumpkin spice hair has more copper undertones whereas gingersnap tends to fall under the category of brunette with red undertones,” Laura Estroff, the head colorist at Kennaland Salon, told Cosmopolitan. The food-inspired hair color is actually right on trend with fall beauty. Warmer hues like Blake Lively’s and Chrissy Teigen’s bronde and the aforementioned gingersnap are becoming increasingly popular for Fall. (more…)

Sasha Mielczarek is the frontrunner to win Sam Frost’s heart on this week’s finale of The Bachelorette, with the pair sharing more in common than just the desire to find a life-long partner.

They have both been engaged before, albeit Sam’s engagement was a little more public and triangular than Sasha’s, and now photos of the construction manager’s ex-fiancée have emerged.

Sydney Confidential reports that Sasha’s ex is Martina Males, she lives in Canberra as a group marketing manager and is the cousin of local model Laura Dundovic, who also happens to be best friend of The Bachelor Season 3 runner-up, Lana Jeavons-Fellows. It’s all just a bit freakin’ tangled isn’t it?  (more…)

Beyoncé Undertakes Her First Print Interview in 2 Years, Please Prepare Freak-Out Accordingly


A photo posted by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

We know people freak out whenever Beyoncé joins forces with a magazine; her Vogue September Issue cover was proof of that. What makes her latest shoot for Beat so special, though, is that she’s opened herself up to an interview, something that she didn’t even do for the fashion bible.

Queen Bey hasn’t taken part in a print interview since 2013, because, well, when you’re the centre of everyone’s universe you don’t need any extra press. As Beat explained, she’s “a woman who prefers to let her music and performance do the talking”, but we’re so glad she’s embraced the sit-down chat, because her latest words of wisdom are just glorious.

Although the mag doesn’t come out until tomorrow, October 21, we’ve all been treated to a little preview of what we can find inside. From how she likes her pizza to what she’d dress up as for Halloween, Bey has really gone wild on, you know, the important stuff. Check out what we learned about the real-life god below. (more…)
