Our forum members had quite a lot to say and there was plenty of positive commentary to go around, although there was also naturally some criticism. “I die!!!! It’s like Vogue Italia’s September cover from last year. 31 Male Top Models… I can dig it!!!”  @niknak gushed.

“Is that REAL? *mind blown,*” @Fontastic wrote. “I love male models multi-covers, but I’m not sure about this one… way too many, but I love most of them so… I think I like it.”

Some members thought the cover should have included a few faces that were left out. “I love it, however, they could have added some new boys who are killing it currently like Alessio and Flilip, and got rid of RJ King and someone else,” @SpeakThatJDunn said. 

@MON agreed: “I think ‘Top Male Models’ should have included Alessio and Filip, because aren’t they [some] of the top male models [at the moment]? Versace, Givenchy, Calvin Klein… these boys are killing it season per season and yet they aren’t included? No offense to RJ King, but I don’t think he has done enough to be part of today’s top male models.”

Others brought up the ever-present spectre of diversity, or the lack thereof on the overall cover. “Although progress shown, it’s crazy that out of 31 models they only add 5 models of color, “TeeVanity observed. “Seemingly so they won’t get the same backlash they received for the March 2014 cover.” 

Whether you love the cover or not, you can’t deny that this is one group of fine lookin’ men. What do you think of the shot? Get in on the conversation in our forums. Details’ September issue hits newsstands August 18.

Kim Kardashian Is Naked on Instagram…Again

When you’re Kim Kardashian, the best way to deal with people talking about your body is to take your clothes off. And that is exactly what the reality TV star has done, treating her millions of followers to a pregnancy nude we didn’t ask for — or really care to see in the first place. 


First they say I’m too skinny so I have to be faking it…Now they say I’m too big so I have to be faking it…SMH! Some days I’m photographed before I eat & look smaller, some days I’ve just eaten & I look bigger. It’s all a part of the process. I think you all know me well enough to know I would document the process if I got a surrogate. Everyone’s body is different, every pregnancy is very different! I’ve learned to love my body at every stage! I’m going to get even bigger & that’s beautiful too! I’m blessed to even be pregnant & even luckier to not have preeclampsia as far as I know, so I don’t have the swelling issue this time! They also say your body carries a boy different than a girl! Whatever the case may be I’m grateful to God for this miracle & no matter what rumors or comments you throw my way this time they truly don’t affect me! #NoFilter #NoPhotoShop #GoodLighting

Kim says her post is in response to the scrutiny she’s faced over her body during her pregnancy, so it is definitely NOT a ploy to keep her in the pop culture news cycle. After all, that would be against everything the Kardashian-Jenners stand for. 

“First they say I’m too skinny so I have to be faking it…Now they say I’m too big so I have to be faking it…SMH! Some days I’m photographed before I eat & look smaller, some days I’ve just eaten & I look bigger. It’s all a part of the process.”

So, for those of you wondering whether or not Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy was real or not, now you have your response. Sleep well tonight, folks.

#SayItAintSo: DKNY PR Girl Is No More

Say goodbye to hilarious Scandal recaps and cute quips, DKNY is getting rid of one of Twitter’s most beloved personas, DKNY PR girl. 

With little explanation and vague warning, DKNY PR girl has retired from tweeting. According to Mashable, all her tweets and Tumblr posts have been deleted. Her last tweet informed the public that DKNY PR girl was “all grown up” and that if you want to get in touch with the woman behind the character, Leave Your Mark author Aliza Licht, to tweet her directly. 

Donna Karan International has been going through a lot of changes lately, including the shuttering of the Donna Karan brand and the appointment of Public School’s Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow as the creative directors of DKNY. Licht explained to Mashable that DKNY is “heading into a new exciting creative direction” and that it will all make sense at DKNY’s Spring 2016 show during New York Fashion Week on September 16. Licht will remain at the company but sadly, her social media alter-ego has been discontinued.

Clearly DKNY is going through some rebranding, but we don’t see why it was necessary to delete all DKNY PR girl’s posts? Many of them were pure gold. But we guess DKNY is really committing to the “out with the old” adage.

Keira Knightley, Is That You on ELLE’s 30th Anniversary Cover? (Forum Buzz)

On our forums, we’re pretty used to seeing Keira Knightley photograph beautifully, whether it’s on the cover of a magazine or in an advertising campaign for Chanel. The American edition of ELLE tapped the Brit actress for its spectacular September 2015 issue and enlisted the photographic expertise of Paola Kudacki. Yet we couldn’t be more displeased with the outcome as Keira doesn’t look like her usual graceful self, looking rather harsh — the leather jacket from Ralph Lauren only adding fuel to the fire.

“This is really bad, looking more like a Cosmopolitan cover,” laughed MDNA in disbelief.

“Not to rain down on the power woman moment, but 30 ain’t no starting line for a lot of ELLE‘s readers, I imagine. More of a memory in the rear view mirror. Their own 2014 press kit seems to cite a median readership age of 37.2, other figures suggest 34. But when it’s your anniversary issue, you got to go with a gimmick,” added tigerrogue.

Handbag Queen certainly wasn’t feeling it either, expressing, “Gosh, what a lousy looking fall cover. Major disappointment.”

“As a subscriber, I really hope the subscribers’ cover looks better than this cheap mess. “THIS IS 30!” looks awful plastered right in the middle there, and they’ve somehow managed to make Keira Knightley look like J. Lo? C’mon, ELLE!” proclaimed beedonaldson.

Also not to show much enthusiasm was burbuja8910: “Tacky cover, she looks cheap.”

“Jesus Christ, 30? More like 40, and a desperate housewife. She’s so beautiful and fresh, why would anyone think this is a good idea?” asked Les Sucettes in horror.

Watch: Aussie Women Rail Against Tampon Tax with Parody Music Video

The “tampon tax” is a buzzword on a lot of lips and Australian women are looking to make it a thing of the past. For about 15 years, the Goods and Services Tax has driven up the price of tampons 10%, all because the government sees sanitary items as non-essential. Sydney-based actor and director Mia Lethbridge got together a group of women, including Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s sister Christine Forster, to put together a music video to express just how ridiculous and discriminatory the tax is.

Set to the tune of Pharrell Williams and Snoop Dogg’s 2004 hit “Drop It Like It’s Hot,” “Drop It Coz It’s Rot” makes the case for getting rid of the tampon tax. Half of the Australian population is female and they shouldn’t be punished or have to pay extra for something their bodies naturally do. Tampons and sanitary products are a necessity for women and society, otherwise – BLOOD EVERYWHERE.

Watch Lethbridge’s ladies make the case to ditch the tampon tax in the video above.

Natasha Poly Scores Her 50th Vogue Cover for Vogue Paris’ September Issue (Forum Buzz)

She’s already scored the cover of Vogue Russia this month and now Natasha Poly steals the show on the front of Vogue Paris‘ September edition. We had been anticipating the outcome of this particular shoot for a while after Emmanuelle Alt and photographer Mert Alas documented their visit to Turkey with the Russian beauty back in June. The result is finally here and the current face of Isabel Marant looks as fierce as ever on her 50th Vogue cover, wearing a luxurious fur over her bare skin complete with tribal-inspired accessories as she scorches under the searing Turkish sun.

The cover, however, left some of our forum members cold. “I’m happy that Natasha is on the cover but the outcome is not the best. It looks like they tried to go for a Veruschka vibe but it went really bad,” Melancholybaby described straight away.

“OMGGGG, this is terrible!” an unimpressed Creative added.

Also not buying it was Benn98: “No thank you!! I’m sorry, but everything is a mess here. Without a doubt their worst cover for this year. The styling, blonde hair, and that awful layout. What is she even wearing?”

HeatherAnne wrote, “Looks like a C-list Vogue like Vogue Portugal, Vogue Spain, etc. Keep sinking that ship, Alt.”

Forum member Oxymore was left disappointed too. “I don’t really know what to think about this one. I’m happy that it’s shot outside because I was tired of the white or gray background. I really like the styling. The hair & makeup is nice too but it’s probably Natasha’s pose that bothers me the most. The angle is wrong imo. Maybe the layout bothers me too,” she wondered.
