Pucker up folks because there is a brand new way for you to express your love of coffee — or any other beverage. Designer Jang Woo Seok from South Korea devised a new kind of coffee lid that’s shaped like a nose and mouth, so when you’re drinking something, you kind of feel as if you’re snogging… awkwardly.

“I love both coffee and kisses. I always have coffee a day, but kiss can’t.  So I began to sketch the idea at the cafe. Funny, I imagined people have a pure joy when walking around kiss lid in hand,” Woo Seok said in a description of the item. Yes the English is a little funky, but it does not make the purpose of his design any less fantastic. “Different from the other coffee lids which have a usual hole to put a straw or to drink directly, Take ‘Kiss’ Out looks like a human face. Therefore, a coffee drinker experiences a visually funny and emotionally different coffee-drinking when drinking.” 

We’re already feeling emotionally different at the thought that this puckered coffee lid might be the only kiss on the mouth we get today.

Watch Lucky Blue Smith, Binx Walton and Christina Hendricks Behind the Scenes of the New Zalando Campaign

Lucky Blue Smith is absolutely everywhere including e-tailer Zalando’s new campaign. The buzzy model was tapped to pose alongside the likes of Binx Walton, Christina Hendricks and a few others for the brand’s #shareyourstyle campaign. Of course, with star power and viral potential like this (Lucky Blue is social media gold, after all), Zalando’s behind-the-scenes video would be an obvious draw for Smith’s fangirls, and there is plenty of the blue-eyed teen sensation to see. 

In the video, Smith fools around on a skateboard, describes his personal style (black skinny jeans and a T-shirt – classic) and basically flits around being adorable. That is his job after all. The video also features interviews from the other members of the campaign cast – Hendricks shares her style icons (a list including Sophia Loren, Florence Welch and Charlotte Gainsbourg) as does Walton, who says she is really into her mom’s style choices from back in the day. 

Watch all the behind-the-scenes action in the video above.

Vogue Turkey May Have Just Delivered the Best September Cover of 2015 (Forum Buzz)

Admit it, Vogue Turkey isn’t exactly your go-to magazine for inspirational fashion photography. It’s been running along with mediocre covers, barely scraping by and rarely managing to get positive reactions from our forum members. But the magazine appears to have taken a major turn with its September issue thanks to the two models who grace the front cover. Josephine Le Tutour and Alexandra Ljadov were shot by Liz Collins for the occasion, decked out in Gucci as they huddle together, making for a seemingly great cover.

Watch: Miley Cyrus Goes Undercover to Find Out What People REALLY Think of Her

With all of Miley Cyrus’ intentionally shocking antics, it’s understandable that folks have strong opinions about the singer. Cyrus is all set to host the MTV Video Music Awards this weekend, but before her big gig, she paid a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live and shot a segment in which she goes undercover as an Australian reporter Janet to find out what people think of her. Of course, the spot is hilarious and Cyrus’ Australian accent is spot-on. 

As the singer was in disguise, folks really let her have it. “I just like Taylor Swift better,” one man said. “I think she’s starving for attention and that’s why she’s doing it all crazy like that,” another observed before taking things up a notch saying, “The whole fabric of America is falling apart and she’s not doing anything to try to keep it together.” Yep. Because it’s the responsibility of a 22-year-old pop star to remedy the ills of our nation.

WATCH: Gisele Bündchen Busts a Move in Stuart Weitzman’s First Commercial

Stuart Weitzman is rolling out its very first television commercial and is tapping a familiar face to help make the big debut. Yes, you guessed it – Gisele Bündchen, who has starred in several of the brand’s previous campaigns, is involved and she is looking as gorgeous as ever in Weitzman’s footwear.

The commercial shows the model busting the electric slide (in a fetching pair of Weitzman KOKO stretch plonge leather peeptoe booties) alsongside a group of shirtless male models and one fellow in all black. The commerical, oddly enough, was inspired by Taylor Swift according to Weitzman. “This year, Taylor Swift asked for like, a dozen pairs for all of her changes [on the ‘1989 World Tour’],” he told WWD. I went to her show in Philly and I was floored. She’s big with all the 15-year-olds, but I wrote her a note that says, ‘You now have a grandfather as one of your fans.’ We make the shoes with extra cushion so she can dance and thought, ‘Hey, we make dance shoes…maybe we should find some way to show them off.’”

And so, we see Ms. Bünchen breaking it down, stomping and shimmying in some of Weitzman’s high heels to show just how comfortable the shoes are for a night (or day) full of dancing. Mario Testino was tapped to direct the commercial and he was the perfect man to capture Bündchen’s smooth moves. 

The commercial is set to air during the MTV Video Music Awards August 30, but in the meantime, you can catch it in the video above.
