Where’s the Drama on Léa Seydoux’s UK Vogue Cover? (Forum Buzz)

She’s set to dominate cinema screens worldwide as the latest Bond Girl and to coincide with the release of the highly anticipated Spectre, Léa Seydoux graces the cover of U.K. Vogue‘s November issue. As our forums received a tidbit that the French actress was to front an upcoming issue of the magazine, we were expecting something a lot more dramatic, fierce and edgy as opposed to what Craig McDean and team have delivered. Photographed wearing Dolce & Gabbana on the cover, our forums were left feeling a little deflated.

“She looks uncomfortable. What an awkward shot for the cover,” exclaimed jeffandtheworld the moment the cover surfaced, setting the tone for comments to come.

“Léa looks really stiff and awkward,” echoed jescajade.

Sharing the disappointment was Aizanara: “They could have something a little bit fiercer and sexier considering the ‘Bond Bombshell’ theme. They clearly wasted her cover potential. This is so basic and boring…”

MON agreed, disapproving, “Wow this looks so uncomfortable. The pose and everything, it feels so weird. It also feels pretentious. Yikes.”

“Not sure about the background but Léa looks amazing in that dress!” admitted Oxymore as things started to shape up.

Benn98 noted, “This looks really pretty, almost like a good Bazaar cover. Love the hair, porcelain beauty, and the colours. For me this is yet another stunning shot from British Vogue, they’re sticking with what works for them and that’s OK in my book.”

Victoria’s Secret Thinks Pasta and Lingerie Are a Perfect Pair

In case you didn’t know, pasta and lingerie go hand in hand. Well, according to Victoria’s Secret, they do. If you happen to be in the market for lace babydoll lingerie, you’ll notice the model on the VS site devouring a plate of spaghetti.

Sandra Bullock Is the Victim of Too Much Photoshop on the November Cover of Glamour (Forum Buzz)

What goes up, must come down and Glamour has certainly taken four steps backward with its November cover. The magazine has been on a complete roll lately, scoring covers with the likes of Kim Kardashian, Taraji P. Henson and Karlie Kloss. Still managing to secure big names, Sandra Bullock is Glamour‘s newest cover girl, shot by photographer Matt Irwin wearing a coat from The Row. But something is seriously up with Sandra’s face on the cover and we aren’t afraid to point it out.

Forum members couldn’t wait to dive in. “YIKES! First of all, why would Sandra Bullock need to do a Glamour cover and secondly, what the heck did they do to her?!?” asked a horrified justaguy.

“She look so old here! This grey background doesn’t help too,” shared narcyza.

Also equally as appalled was Bertrando3, exclaiming, “What the hell is she wearing and that Photoshopped face and weird hairdo and ugh this is awful.”

Kite said, “So… I think this is a paparazzi/red carpet picture Photoshopped onto a body…”

Yet amazingly so, not everyone acknowledged the evident airbrushing. “How glorious to see a 51-year-old woman on the cover, and not entirely airbrushed (there clearly is to some extent, but I feel it wasn’t overdone like Harper’s Bazaar did to SJP), it’s a very nice cover. Glamour has been great lately,” approved Miss Dalloway.

“It’s always nice to see Sandra and her hair looks stunning. I’m looking forward to her feature,” anticipated Benn98.

There is undeniably a far more superior shot from Sandra’s cover story that we would’ve chosen for the cover. Check it out and share your own opinion here.

Linda Evangelista Stars in Moschino’s Kitschy New Fragrance Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Leave it to someone like Jeremy Scott to bring us a fragrance that blows our minds…and senses. Moschino has certainly lived up to expectations after Scott unveiled his debut fragrance for the Italian fashion house last year and had us mesmerized for months. Now onto his second, Fresh Couture is set to raise the bar even higher. Contained in a bottle to resemble a household cleaning product, Moschino’s new scent is accompanied by an even more spectacular advertising campaign — and we’re loving it. Shot by Steven Meisel, the legendary and iconic Linda Evangelista is crowned Domestic Goddess of 2015, scrubbing away as she clutches the bottle while fetching us bucketfuls of nostalgia.

The campaign image had our attention immediately. “I like this. Jeremy’s Moschino is the ultimate punchline gimmick for the kids anyways. Having a Windex bottle as a perfume bottle is actually ingenious in that sense. They’ll love it, pulling this out of their McMoschino bag for lolz. Linda as the cleaning lady is priceless,” raved Phuel.

“I appreciate it’s something different from the usual formula for perfume ads, typically featuring romantic flowers and rumpled bedsheets,” tigerrogue said in appreciation.

Kokobombon was quick to add, “Plastic Fantastic! Is that the actual bottle? You’d spray perfume like that? I’m so buying this, kitsch galore!”

Also showing great enthusiasm toward the image was Spike413: “This is so, so fun. The idea for the bottle reminds me, very slightly, of when Diesel housed their fragrances in weed killer spray bottles. Equally clever and silly.”

“I love it! The bottle is cute and Linda looks great. I’m curious to smell it now,” confessed GivenchyHomme.

Be sure to take a sniff once Fresh Couture hits shelves worldwide November 1 and in the meantime, drop us a comment here.

Kanye West Feels Discriminated Against for Not Being a Gay Fashion Designer

Kanye West debuted his second Yeezy collection in conjunction with Adidas last month at New York Fashion Week, which was met with decidedly lackluster reviews. Expressing some mixed emotions about his role as a fashion designer, the rapper-designer feels the fashion world has discriminated against him because he’s not gay.

“I feel like I got discriminated in fashion for not being gay,” he told SHOWstudio in a recent interview. “In music, you definitely get discriminated in music if you are gay. It takes amazing talents to break down barriers. Everyone thought that when Frank Ocean dropped that it was going to be bad for his career. I feel like it’s so cliché to speak about him as it relates to this subject, but there are people who broke the ground and he broke the ground. The people that break the stereotypes make history.” (more…)
