Katie Holmes Goes Topless for Glamour’s August Issue (Forum Buzz)

Glamour's latest cover informs us the single life agrees with Katie Holmes, and I couldn't agree more. The ex-Mrs. Cruise is currently promoting her upcoming movie, The Giver, which is due out for release next month. For the August 2014 cover, we see Katie wearing a denim shirt teamed with a pair of denim jeans, which was styled by Jill Davison.

Inside the magazine, Tom Munro shoots Katie for a series of photographs where she goes topless. Of course, the actress conceals her modesty with her arms as she wears even more denim for the studio-based portraits. She's never looked better, and check out that fabulous hair! Credit goes to Serge Normant for the voluminous hairstyle and Fulvia Farolfi for the makeup.

Members of our forums aren't so taken with the cover shoot, though. "I don't like Katie's covers, they all look the same for me, actually she always looks the same! And this one in particular reminds me a lot (the whole concept) of Jessica Alba's recent cover. Boring," commented Andrea27.

"Why Katie?" simply questioned GlamorousBoy.

Srdjan shared the same uncertainty and wrote, "The (main) cover is okay, the rest is just nah."

Heidi Middleton and Sarah-Jane Clarke Leave Sass & Bide

After 15 years of outstanding success, Sass & Bide founders and best buddies Heidi Middleton and Sarah-Jane Clarke have decided to leave their prestigious label in the hands of Australian department store Myer. Anthony Cuthbertson, who has consulted for Victoria Beckham and Mulberry, will take on the reigns of Design Director, and Bonnie O'Hare has been appointed Art Director.

“Heidi and Sarah-Jane’s departure from Sass & Bide has been in planning for some time as they have been transitioning out of the business." Myer told Vogue. "Myer wishes Heidi and Sarah-Jane well, they go with our great good wishes, and we expect they will be associated with Sass & Bide for a long time.”

Middleton and Clarke also told Vogue that it was a joint decision to move on from the brand "while it was flourishing." And flourishing it is, with celebrities like Eva Longoria, Drew Barrymore and Ashley Greene recently spotted wearing Sass & Bide designs on the red carpet.

We can't help but wonder what the loss of Middleton and Clarke will mean for the brand moving forward. Middleton and Clarke were always walking advertisements for their much-loved brand, but somehow we can't see the newly appointed Cuthbertson rocking their signature embellishments.

A Nude Gigi Hadid Poses for Tom Ford’s Velvet Orchid Fragrance Campaign (Forum Buzz)

She's racking up quite the modeling portfolio and now Gigi Hadid can add a Tom Ford fragrance campaign to her ever-growing books. The American model fronts the designer's seductive new fragrance, Velvet Orchid. Photographed by Mario Sorrenti, Gigi is seen posing nude as she reclines across a purple foiled background.

It seems a sultry image for a fragrance campaign just isn't enough, as members of our forums weren't so pleased with the finished result. "Looks more like a CGI than a pic of a real person. And I don't think Gigi is the right model for this," commented woemwoem.

"WOW, that is not good!!" wrote an unimpressed justaguy.

Subtly acknowledging the amount of evident post-production, mikel added, "Is this the same man that photographed those classic nude images of Kate Moss for the Obsession by Calvin Klein campaign in the Nineties??? Oh how times have changed."

"The plastic background looks cheap and the bottle is lost in the corner. Nothing velvet about this. I love Gigi and Mario and did this happen?" questioned zoom.

TeeVanity seemed optimistic, however, and wrote, "I like Gigi, but this really doesn't work, hope there's better images to come from this campaign."

Are you compelled enough to go check out the fragrance? Velvet Orchid is now available for purchase on Tom Ford's site. See inside the thread for a high-resolution image and join the discussion here.

The New York Daily News Thinks Lena Dunham is More Powerful Than Anna Wintour

Joseph Marzullo/,

Joseph Marzullo/,

Today, the New York Daily News published its list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in New York, and while we were so proud and inspired to read about these accomplished women, we are seriously questioning the "definitive" nature of this list, as some of the rankings are, quite frankly, off.

Each woman is sorted by number — Beyoncé (spiritual First Lady of New York City) tops the list at #1 with Chirlane McCray (actual First Lady of New York City) coming in second. The list seems to start out pretty accurately (no one's going to argue with Beyoncé being the most powerful anything), but takes a turn for the WTF as it progresses. It's not that the women mentioned on this list aren't powerful or deserving of a mention. It's the questionable numbering system that's throwing us off.

Included on the list is Girls creator Lena Dunham, which the daily says has "redefined being young, single and female in New York." Uh…OK? Pretty sure "white and privileged" is a running theme for stories about young, single women in New York (Friends, Sex and the City, Cruel Intentions, Gossip Girl…how much time do you have because we've got all day), but even more bewildering is that Dunham was ranked at #5, while Anna Wintour, who is Forbes magazine's 39th most powerful woman in the world, is sitting at #18. A woman who got the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a celebrated and prominent New York City institution, to rename an entire wing after her and had the First Lady of the United States cut the ribbon at her big moment…is less powerful than some chick who wrote an HBO series about getting cut off from her parents, living in Brooklyn and showing more bare naked ass than anyone wished to see? Whatever you say, Daily News.

Dunham is billed as more powerful than City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer and Tina Fey. Who knew some masturbatory musings on having to get a job and pay rent all by yourself could give you so much ~clout~ in this city? This isn't to say that Dunham isn't accomplished or deserving–she's only 28 and she's done more in her life than plenty of people twice her age. But in order for her to be the fifth most powerful woman in NYC, she's going to need more credits under her belt than she's working with right now.

Also listed ahead of Mme. Wintour is Jenna Lyons (#11), who does have plenty of power, especially in the fashion industry. But her designs for J.Crew wouldn't even be in Vogue were it not for Wintour's seal of approval, so we're still wondering: WTF? 

Other fashion people to make the list are DKNY PR girl Aliza Licht (30), Rachna Shah, managing director of KCD Digital (#39), Eva Chen (#19) and Diane Von Furstenberg (#31).

Everything from whisky to skinny dipping comes up as Poppy waxes lyrical about everything from their first meeting at Storm model agency 10 years ago. Poppy recalls, "I remember thinking [Alexa] was very beautiful, almost cat-like, but definitely a bit of a bloke."

However, the turning point of their friendship, she says, was a spot of moonlight skinny dipping in Cannes, where she realised "it wasn’t just another friendship."

Flashback: US Harper’s Bazaar October 2005 with Charlize Theron by Peter Lindbergh

For this week's flashback series, we're taking another look back at Harper's Bazaar. The October 2005 issue of the American edition has Charlize Theron on the front cover, photographed by Peter Lindbergh. Charlize wears a black dress from John Galliano's haute couture collection for Christian Dior with jewelry also from the French fashion house (the star's first ads for Dior's J'adore fragrance had just come out).

Flashback US Harper's Bazaar October 2005 Charlize Theron


Not only do we get a fabulous cover shot with Charlize, we also see a cover story which consists of seven images of the actress wearing a range of creations from Giorgio Armani Privé, Valentino, Christian Lacroix, Jean Paul Gaultier and Givenchy. The final shot is of Charlize wearing a black and pink Edwardian-style gown from Chanel, which has always been a favorite image of mine. It's one of those pictures where the fashion actually takes center stage (even with a beautiful woman like Charlize wearing it).

Also inside the 304-page issue is an editorial from Bazaar regular Greg Kadel who shot Inguna Butane for a 60s-inspired story. Julia Stegner is photographed by Anthony Ward for a more modern take on the trends and we also see an article with Nicolas Ghesquiére. There really is something for everyone!

Surprisingly, our forums didn't have a thread for this particular issue, so one has been started here.
