A Wig-Wearing Abbey Lee Kershaw Returns for Hugo Boss Spring 2015 Ad Campaign (Forum Buzz)

We should’ve known this was coming after she opened the show during New York Fashion Week in September: Abbey Lee Kershaw stars in the Spring 2015 advertising campaign for Hugo Boss. Jason Wu tapped the Aussie beauty to front his second campaign for the German brand and kept photographic duo Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin from last season to lens the images. The womenswear campaign is fresh and simple with a modern twist as Abbey sports a blunt blond wig, while standing before a classic studio backdrop, allowing the clothes and accessories to do the talking. Abbey previously fronted the Hugo by Hugo Boss campaign back in 2011.

Our forum members had mixed reactions toward the new campaign. “Why did they give Abbey that god awful hairstyle? The hair from the runway show would have looked so much sleeker. I can’t even look at anything else,” slammed valliaddict.

Benn98 was also underwhelmed with the result and echoed, “Eek! Not what I expected, Abbey doesn’t look her best here. Hopefully the rest will be better.”

GivenchyHomme just simply wasn’t feeling Hugo Boss’ offering this season and proclaimed, “I prefer last season’s campaign with Edie. Abbey isn’t doing it for me.”

Opinions shortly changed inside the thread, though. “I like Abbey’s pic a lot. It seems that they continued the idea of last season, but it’s an improvement so kudos to Abbey,” enthused a satisfied Avogadro.

“In love with Abbey’s picture as well. I don’t mind the hairstyle so much, it’s very Abbey and Abbey is just pure love,” shared a positive anlabe32.

Nepenthes was also a fan: “I actually really love Abbey’s shot!”

“Love Abbey’s presence, kinda breaks with the brand’s overall boredom imo,” stated kokobombon.

Charlie Siem is the face of the menswear campaign. Check out his shot for Hugo Boss’ Spring 2015 ad campaign inside the thread and join the discussion here.

Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevingne Hug It Out for LOVE Magazine

We’re starting to think Katie Grand may be just a little obsessed with Kendall Jenner. The editrix has been hooking up the buzzy model with gigs for Marc Jacobs, Giles and more, and put her on the cover of LOVE‘s last issue. She even added her to the magazine’s advent calendar. Well, it seems Grand was extremely pleased with the response from Kendall’s first performance because she’s tapped her for another issue.

This time, Kendall, her face obscured, straddles Cara Delevingne in a black and white photo lensed by Sølve Sundsbø. The pair wore Bottega Veneta outfits for the shot, but you wouldn’t be able to tell since, well, it looks more like they’re rocking Hanes separates.

This is yet another score for Kendall, who simply won’t be stopped in the fashion industry. Get ready to see even more of her in 2015.

Freja Beha Erichsen Shows Off ‘The New Natural’ on UK Vogue’s January Cover (Forum Buzz)

Kate Moss’ festive December covers for U.K. Vogue are about to disappear from newsstands as we move swiftly on to the January issue. Released via its website earlier today, the British glossy welcomes Freja Beha Erichsen back to its cover, marking the Danish model’s fifth appearance since her debut for the magazine back in August 2010. Photographed by Alasdair McLellan wearing a casual sweater and jeans from Gucci, Freja stands before a warm beige background with her brunette tresses styled into a 70s-inspired hairdo.

Naturally, our forum members began to weigh in the moment the cover surfaced. “Very down to earth, not really my cup of tea. Her hair looks too fuzzy, love her face, her left eye has more mascara than the right and too much sparkle in both eyes. The cover looks better from afar than in close-up,” commented Nymphaea, not getting us off to a positive start.

“Very random to choose Freja and boring as hell,” added an underwhelmed jj36.

Forum member marsnoop2 simply posted the word “drab” inside the thread. Ouch!

“I love the color scheme. I love the fact that it is Freja and she’s undeniably beautiful. I love the softness of the cover and it’s a relaxing one to look at. But somehow looking at the image thoroughly gives me the impression of it being a catalog shot. It’s like a Nordstrom catalog shot,” proclaimed MON.

But a select few forum members approved. “I like it. It’s a beautiful clean and simple cover,” noted fashionlover2001.

Mrs.T was certainly an admirer and enthused, “I just love seeing her on the covers!!”

Also appreciative was Cosmic Voices: “There’s a slightly disheveled, throwback, anarchic girl vibe that really identifies itself with British Vogue imo so this cover is pretty perfect. I love Freja too so that helps.”

Georgia May Jagger Lands Vogue Thailand’s December Cover Wearing Givenchy (Forum Buzz)

Prepare yourselves for some serious 70s-inspired fashion stories this upcoming season. Georgia May Jagger has landed the cover of Vogue Thailand’s last issue of 2014 wearing an outfit designed by Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy and looks as though she’s part of Swedish pop group ABBA in the process. Shot by Marcin Tyszka in the studio, Georgia also posed for a series of images to accompany the cover shoot, styled by Yann Weber.

Although the cover doesn’t seem to be sitting well with our forum members. “It’s a little too busy with all the text, the prints and the color of the font. I think she actually looks good here. But it’s so predictable at this point to see her come with a line ‘rock royalty.’ Can’t they come up with a new theme for her. Or this will be the only theme she can model,” ranted TaylorBinque.

“Looks very depressing. The styling looks very excessive, I cannot even see her shape,” noted Benn98.

Also not feeling it was Nymphaea, who commented, “Not good, she almost looks pregnant and not enjoying it.”

GivenchyHomme also disapproved: “I find it hard to believe that this was her best shot. She looks like she has a stomach ache.”
“I think it is a bit trashy…” wrote an uninterested GlamorousBoy.

“A close-up would have been better even but with another face expression LOL,” exclaimed Oxymore.

Forum member fashionlover2001 shared everyone’s sentiments and simply informed us that he’s “not feeling this cover.”

Prepare to laugh all holiday season long and into 2015: Julia Louis-Dreyfus has been named the new face of Old Navy and her hilarious campaign is set to drop today.

The Veep actress follows fellow funny gal Amy Poehler and will star in the retailer’s commercials from now until the summer. Julia is said to have had a huge hand in conceptualizing the campaigns, two of which were directed by Roman Coppola. The first commercial depicts the actress as an overachieving holiday hostess, bent on letting everyone know just how great and can-do she is — until a few Old Navy clad guests arrive and she hears about how inexpensive those holiday duds were. Julia leaves her turpigen (a chicken inside of a pig inside of a turkey, of course) to hit the store.

Check out the hilarious spot below.

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Raised a Ton of Money for Charity

Thought a troop of beautiful, long-legged women in lingerie walking down a runway couldn’t benefit society? Oh, ye of little faith. Turns out those genetically-blessed glamazons actually did some good for humanity with reports saying that the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show raised tons of money for charity.

This year, the lingerie giant decided to put tickets for the show up for sale. At about $25,000 a pop for 200 showgoers, the event managed to raise $2.5 million. This is the first time Victoria’s Secret opened the show to regular ol’ rich folk and obviously, it was a successful move. While we don’t know for sure whether it will sell tickets for next year’s show, something tells us the brand may consider it, given how much money was raised this time around.
