Lady In Red: Anne Hathaway Stars on InStyle’s September Cover (Forum Buzz)

InStyle hit a home run last month after tapping Eva Longoria for the August issue. Now, as the magazine gears up for the release of its huge September issue, Anne Hathaway is unveiled as its latest cover conquest. Photographed by Michelangelo Di Battista and styled by Melissa Rubini, the actress looks regal and sophisticated wearing an elegant creation from Christian Dior. This is certainly a cover that could get us in the mood for those blockbuster September issues that are about to smash into our mailboxes.

Forum members were pleasantly surprised at InStyle‘s offering. “I actually love that cover! Anne looks lovely, red looks so good on her,” admired SallyAlbright immediately.

“I don’t like Anne but that one is a nice cover,” admitted fluxxx.

Also impressed with the shot was tigerrogue. “She looks so keen, as if there’s something she really has to tell me. And then I realized how rare it is, that I feel any sort of connection with a cover girl. But those big eyes are looking at me,” she wrote in appreciation for the chosen cover image.

“This is a good shot, that oddly enough only works for them. Reminds me of Renee [Zellweger] and Nicole [Kidman]‘s covers for this magazine,” said Benn98.

“I actually love this! Anne looks beautiful, although, I’m having issues with the brows,” pointed out MON, as things started to head south.

A.D.C. was quick to notice, “Only 538 pages? Wasn’t last years 700+ pages? Seems like a pretty big decline.”

“Yeah big page difference this year, but it’s a nice enough cover,” assured Miss Dalloway.

Natasha Poly’s Vogue Russia Cover Gives Us Major Flashbacks to the 90s (Forum Buzz)

Most of our forum members have taken a shine to Vogue Russia‘s latest unveiling — even though the cover gives us major flashbacks to the 1990s. Natasha Poly fronts the September issue, photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, and models a leopard print coat from Louis Vuitton before a rather contrasting orange studio backdrop. Reminder to the staff at Vogue Russia: this is 2015 people.

Natasha’s presence clearly saved the day. “Natasha looks beautiful, but somehow this looks cheap and dated,” said jeffandtheworld right away.

“I think the orange background makes it look dated. Natasha looks fab as always, but the rest is meh,” Nymphaea replied.

KateTheGreatest, agreed, echoing, “I don’t like the background colors but Natasha looks perfect – as always!”

Sharing the same sentiments was justaguy: “She looks so beautiful here. Too bad they ruined it with the dated looking burnt orange background.”

Although the magazine must have done something right. “A 90s flashback is good for me. She just beams radiance!” Aedlacir raved.

“Gorgeous cover! Great colors and a smashing close up! Great cover from VR!” praised miguelalmeida.

“Finally! I just love it! It’s going to be the first Russian Vogue I’m buying,” announced a more than satisfied Oxymore.

WATCH: Calvin Harris’ New Music Vid with Gigi Hadid Is One Giant Ode to Hair Tossing

We thought our hair-whipping days were locked away in a little box with Willow Smith back in 2010, but Calvin Harris and Gigi Hadid have teamed up to show us how to properly flip those locks. 

Calvin’s video clip for “How Deep Is Your Love” has just been released on YouTube, starring one of Taylor Swift‘s many, many supermodel BFFs Gigi, who thought she best prove to us that she has hair on her head and she knows how to use it.

The vid sees Gigi lie on a surgical bed in Dexter-esque plastic wrap before hitting da club, having a dip, hanging in a dingy tattoo parlour, checking out the crop, and getting amongst the mushrooms all while being the greatest (hair) tosser we’ve ever seen.

Flippin’ babe or not, we think she’s far more believable as Calvin’s Frankenstein spawn than in her previous music vid roles as Swifty’s “Alien Jumpsuit Chick” Slay-Z or Cody Simpson’s own personal surfboard.

Don’t believe us? Watch Gigi do her thang above.
