Watch the Premiere Episode of Escape My Life

Escape My Life is a web comedy campaign series which spotlights the Ford Escape. It stars comedian Natasha Leggero as Skylar, a Hollywood wardrobe designer, and comedian and actor Joe Truglio as Barry, the weird vagrant that came with her car. 

It's an ambitious series, chock-full of the kind of in-jokes and meta-references which characterize some of today's most popular television comedy. In the premiere webisode below, Skylar learns about a new Ford marketing program which leases cars to people that work in the entertainment industry as a way of generating buzz. There's just one catch…

Karlie Kloss Officially Has Her Victoria’s Secret Angel Wings (Forum Buzz)

Karlie Kloss - Victoria's Secret profile

Though Karlie Kloss got tongues wagging earlier this week by appearing at Victoria’s Secret events with some of the brand’s official Angels, it wasn’t until today, when a forum member discovered that the model had gotten her own Angel profile on the Victoria’s Secret website that the news became official.

“Karlie has gotten what other ‘presumed/assumed/wished for’ models like Lais Ribeiro/Barbara Palvin/Arlenis Sosa/Toni Garrn/Bregje Heinen etc have not gotten,” tlg00 announced. “She has an Angel profile. I know some people weren't considering her legit until she got on the VS site. Well, she's there. Congratulations Karlie.”

“Yay Karlie, couldn't have happened to a nicer human being,” Littleathquakes posted. “And I think that's the first time I've seen her height (presumably her true height) listed.” Props to Victoria’s Secret for acknowledging the undeniable fact that Karlie is super tall.

Labelwhore commented, “I'm ecstatic about Karlie. She deserves this and more. While I'm happy for her, looking at their lineup is depressing,” she added. “All white girls, no diversity. I guess it matches the current attitude people have in the fashion industry.”

Not to sound like a broken record – and congratulations to all the white girls who are doing super well – but there’s something seriously wrong with the model casting process and that needs to change. Stat.

Anne Vyalitsyna Goes High Fashion on the Cover of Zoo (Forum Buzz)

Anne Vyalitsyna in Dior for Zoo - photography by Bryan Adams

Though she’s best known for her Victoria’s Secret work and bikini bod, Anne Vyalitsyna has proven once again that she’s totally capable of going high fashion. In a simple black and white shot by Bryan Adams, Anne dominates the cover of Zoo’s Spring/Summer 2013 issue.

“Really beautiful cover. Simple and elegant styling and Anne looks stunning here,” justaguy commented.

Urban Stylin wrote, “I love how easily she transitions.”

You kind of can’t go wrong with a Dior dress, minimal makeup, understated hair and Anne V, right? That’s what this cover says to me, anyway.

Brit Marling and Eddie Redmayne Grace W’s April Cover (Forum Buzz)

W April 2013 - Brit Marling and Eddie Redmayne

“Who are these people?” sore asked when she saw W’s latest cover. The answer? Actress Brit Marling and actor Eddie Redmayne. They are, along with Emayatzy Corinealdi, “The New Guard: Hollywood’s Freshest Faces.” Their faces may be “fresh” but Brit looks astonishingly like Lana del Rey in the cover shot (by Alasdair McLellan) and – it has to be said – W really just needs to stop with these couples covers because they are not working.

“I hate Brit's expression, it looks like Eddie is holding her hostage,” TREVOFASHIONISTO commented.

BonesAndOil wrote, “I love both of them, and it's about time Brit got some recognition, but this cover is horrible. Both of their faces, why?”

Luxx was actually a fan of the editorial that accompanied the cover image and saw a missed opportunity. “I may be alone in this, but for me Emayatzy Corinealdi is the best thing about the story and I would have LOVED to see her on the cover. I love Brit Marling as well, but the camera is in love with Emayatzy. Love the hair and styling on this, these images have a beautiful atmosphere,” she added.

“Why would they have a featured editorial with three actors but only put two of them on the cover?” loladonna  asked, bringing to mind the recent discussion about diversity on the runways. Could the same sort of bias be at play here?

Not your best effort, W.

i-D Serves Up Lara Stone’s Head on a Platter

If you liked Lara Stone's bizarro hair antler i-D cover, there's more where that came from. Here's the editorial, photographed by Tyrone Lebone and fashion-directed by Charlotte Stockdale.

One image shows a topless Stone covering herself with two strategically placed wine glasses; another has the Dutch model's crudely made-up face resting on a fruit platter — lips shiny and red, eyeliner thick, hair clipped up in a barette; even though the third shot isn't so in-your-face, it still feels Lynchian thanks to the headless Sphinx chair and Stone's oversized, furry Sister by Sibling top and white cowboy boot stilettos.  

Asked in the accompanying interview whether he thinks fashion photography should be beautiful, Lebone says, "Not really it gets boring doesn’t it. But fashion photography is fundamentally about selling aspirations through clothes. And most people aspire to beauty. So it follows that fashion photography should be beautiful to serve its main purpose. But there is a bit of space around the edges to work within fashion and achieve something more than this, and this is where it becomes interesting."

The issue features another equally good-weird shoot by the same creative team starring "model-of-the-moment" Cara Delevingne, which you can see here.
