Kanye West to Receive Video Vanguard Award at This Year’s VMAs

Now that Kanye West is finally getting the recognition from the fashion industry he always thought he deserved, it’s time for the music industry to follow suit – and MTV is ready, willing and able. The controversial and oft-polarizing rapper is set to be honored at this year’s Video Music Awards. Yeezy will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award this year, which makes sense considering the rapper has rolled out more than a few iconic videos in his time. 

We’re sure Kanye will come dressed to the nines to collect his honor. In the meantime, MTV has released a short video announcing West as the recipient of the award, which you can see above.

Six years ago, Kanye famously interrupted Taylor Swift as she collected her VMA for Best Female Video – this sounds like a great opportunity for Swiftie to exact sweet revenge.

Of Course Léa Seydoux Photographed Like a Dream for Vanity Fair France (Forum Buzz)

While the American/British version of Vanity Fair serves up a brash and unflattering cover starring Taylor Swift for September 2015, the French edition delivers the goods and we’re delighted with the outcome. The title tapped Léa Seydoux for its newly-unveiled issue and since the actress is well affiliated with Prada as the face of its feminine Candy fragrance, it seemed only fitting for the 30-year-old upcoming Bond Girl to wear an outfit by the Italian fashion brand before the lens of photographer Paul Wetherell.

The minute the cover surfaced, forum members began to sing the magazine’s praises. “Stunning. You can’t do wrong with her, so beautiful,” admired jexxica.

“Their (Vanity Fair France that is) best cover, by far. You just can’t go wrong with Lea,” echoed HeatherAnne.

“Absolutely stunning! Love how sultry yet demure she looks. The hair & makeup is perfection and even though it’s quite predictable to see her in Prada, I love the styling,” enthused Wolkfolk.

Also enthusing about the cover and Léa’s presence was burbuja8910: “Amazing, this woman is so beautiful.”

Nepenthes simply used to the word “breathtaking” to describe the cover, with Aedlacir adding, “Magnificent! The colors, hair and make up make this my top pick for September covers. Such a fan of Léa.”

“Lovely cover. Flawless hair and Prada looks good on her,” noted jeffandtheworld.

It’s Episode 9 of The Bachelor, which means “date crashers” Lana and Rachel are finally going to arrive. By the looks of the spoilers, tonight is going to be amazing.

It’s obvious that all the ladies are wanting a second, or, for some, a third, single date with Sam, and, really, who would blame them? Let’s not forget that the ladies are also trying to suss out if Sam is the right man for them.

The single date goes to Bec, and  it wont take much to top her last date with Sam. Bec leaves the mansion wearing a stunning leopard-print maxi dress, which I’m guessing is from Spell Designs. I just love that shop. (more…)

This Model Says She’s Too Big for the Fashion Industry

Being beautiful can be hard sometimes – especially if you aspire to be a high fashion model. Agnes Hedengård, a 19-year-old Swedish model has been getting attention around the Internet after posting a YouTube video in which she claims that she is considered too big for fashion.

Agnes says that she has been working as a model for five years and she’s since stopped getting jobs as the industry say she is too big. “They think my butt is too big and they think my hips are too wide,” she said. She mentions that she has had big-name clients looking to work with her “but as soon as they get a hold of my measurements, it’s a whole ‘nother story.” 

Agnes says that her BMI is 17.5, which is smaller than what is considered a “normal” BMI for adult women, which ranges from 18.5 to 24.9. According to the BMI, Agnes is underweight. “It’s absurd and I hate it,” she says of the reactions she’s gotten from agents and clients about her body. Granted, she does have a bit of a booty, which is interesting considering fashion magazines like Vogue and others have been falling over themselves calling this the “era of the big booty” and wrapping Kim Kardashian’s curves in designer duds of all stripes. Funny how the standard changes once that modest butt is on a relatively unknown model. 

Clearly, Agnes has a great body and despite the modeling industry scrambling to modify its ridiculous body standards, it still seems to be an issue. Something in fashion needs to change, but we also think that Agnes is better off taking her talents elsewhere.

“Errr whoops! Anything to draw attention to a good cause, I guess. Right @helenmccabe?  #brafail #crazyeyes #10hours,” Sylvia tweeted. (more…)
