The ‘True Blood’ Season 6 Trailer: Alcide Still Shirtless

The other day I was in the grocery store feeling slightly dejected about life: "It's cold outside," I thought. "And even when it gets warmer, it'll be cold again like this next winter. And again the following year. And on and on like that in perpetuity, the only respite being eventual death." But suddenly I thought, "Oh! True Blood must be coming back soon!" and near-instantly my spirits lifted (it helps that I ferreted a ripe avocado out of the mostly unripe avocado pile). 

True Blood season 6 premieres on Sunday, June 16. "It's the beginning of the end," someone says about vampire war, probably, in the trailer below — but really they're talking about life.

Courtney Love Tops Her Saint Laurent Campaign With a Commercial for NJOY Electronic Cigarettes

I just posted about Courtney Love's new ads for Saint Laurent, but there's no such thing as "too much Courtney Love" (unless, she's over at your house and refuses to leave) and I can't resist this fantastic new commercial she did for NJOY electronic cigarettes [via Fashionista].

Courtney Love for Saint Laurent: “OMG What Did I Miss? Is It 1993 Again?”

Late last week, we considered an ad image of Marilyn Manson for Hedi Slimane's Saint Laurent Mens. It gets worse (or better, depending on your perspective, I guess): the Manson ad is part of a larger campaign called "Music Project" which also features Courtney Love (above), Ariel Pink and Kim Gordon. In the Forum thread dedicated to the campaign, Vitamine W was the first community member to react the images: "OMG what did I miss? Is it 1993 again?"

The campaign was announced by Dazed Digital, which offered only the most tenuous connection between Yves Saint Laurent's storied past and Slimane's "Music Project": In 1971, Saint Laurent did the clothes for Mick and Bianca Jagger's wedding. Thus, the new creative director is not, as it might appear, simply indulging his own tastes for black-and-white photographs of aging rockers, but furthering the brand's cultural legacy and its strong ties to the music community. 

Frankly, I like Marilyn Manson and Courtney Love — like, a lot — but Slimane's got to have a screw loose if he thinks this is actually an appropriate campaign for YSL ugh, Saint Laurent. Are we really supposed to look at pictures of Love crawling on the floor, dressed in glam-grunge, and think, "Wow, that is the work of a visionary!" Okay: visionary of a horse that's already been beaten to death. It isn't even funny

Louis Vuitton Gives the Alma Bag Its Own Campaign (Forum Buzz)

One of Louis Vuitton’s classics, the Alma bag, got its very own campaign this season. Accompanied by the tagline “Chic on the bridge,” the ads take place on landmark bridges in Paris, New York and Shanghai, with models carrying the bag in colors emblematic of the depicted cities. Taxicab yellow pops in New York, French blue flows over the Seine, and lacquered red stands out in Shanghai. Models Karlie Kloss, Daria Strokous, Jac Jagaciak, and Iris Strubegger don looks from Louis Vuitton’s Pre-Fall collection as they carry the iconic Epi leather bags in this campaign.

While the campaign works hard to transport and create an aspirational vibe, forum members pulled out every critical jab they could muster. “Could've been so much better,” lebigt complained.

“The photoshop job is ridiculous and quite obvious,” GivenchyHomme remarked.

TommyGirl wrote: “Based on the description before the actual campaign shots I was waiting for some gorgeous location shots. What do I get? Gorgeous models placed in front of fake backgrounds. It is so obvious it must be intentional, I just don’t get the reasoning,” she lamented.

Agee admitted that she has high expectations for Louis Vuitton that the brand just didn’t meet this time around. “Honestly if this were a lesser brand I would probably find the first two images more acceptable, but I expect more from LV,” she commented.

Photoshopped backgrounds or not, Louis Vuitton still managed to kind of charm me with this one. I can’t help it.

Inject Some Danish Cool Into Your Wardrobe with Baum and Pferdgarten

The Easter holidays are almost over again for another year, and if you’re spending the rest of our bank holiday recovering from your chocolate coma, then no doubt you’re perusing the latest fashion offerings online. For many of us, the Easter break is also a great chance to get away on a short European city break, and the best thing about any city break is checking out their fashion trends.

At the moment, if we could choose any chic city to get away to, it would have to be the beautiful Copenhagen, as the Danish are just so effortlessly stylish. Plus, it’s clear that the Danish fashion industry is bigger than ever, with its bi-annual fashion weeks and array of successful designers.

If you too are craving a lit bit of cool Danish style in your life without trekking abroad, then feast your eyes on Danish label Baum und Pferdgarten’s latest offerings. The chic Scandi label offers a plethora of on-trend pieces throughout the year and is readily available for you to shop in the UK at ASOS, Coggles and Plumo. Their pieces would make for the perfect addition to your working wardrobe or even just a casual off-duty look.

The looks above come from Baum and Pferdgarten’s latest SS13 range with the boxy cut jacket and shorts combo (above left) perfectly channeling that Danish androgyny vibe. The choice of material, a plastic style skirt, in the outfit above right, transforms what could have been a classic look into something a lot more fashion-forward — something those Danes do best!
