We’re Not Impressed with Toni Garrn’s Vogue Mexico Cover (Forum Buzz)

She might be the current girlfriend of Leonardo DiCaprio, but Toni Garrn‘s latest work is failing to impress most of our forum members. The German model fronts the September 2014 issue of Vogue Mexico where she is photographed by James Macari. On the cover, Toni wears a thick red coat teamed with a complementing waistcoat and dress, chosen by Sarah Gore Reeves. Toni’s last cover for Mexican Vogue was back in February 2013.

It was evident within minutes of the cover surfacing on our forums that our members were having mixed feelings. “This cover is awful, cheap, horrible and much more,” commented GlamVal.

“Cheap, cheaper, cheapest. She’s such an awful model,” agreed anlabe32.

MulletProof shared her insightful views: “I thought Eva Hughes was one bipolar nightmare as EIC of Vogue Mexico, mostly wacky, busy-looking covers with odd lapses of creativity or at least some taste (like 2011 and the September issue of 2008—all good and expressive in their own way), but Kelly Talamas… sighs, you gotta recognize her consistency… she’s just BAD in one steady stubborn line, she really has this vision of someone that would lazily flip through the weakest issues of American Vogue while watching Laguna Beach or Olivia Palermo‘s blog. Just everything about presentation and content sucks, it’s vapid, tacky and you can tell she really has no connection with the market this is aimed at… and really why use the most overexposed models only to make their image even more insufferable…if this isn’t just an ego stroke and flirting to later climb to a publication she actually respects, I just don’t know anymore. I won’t even go into ranting on these pole dancer hair extensions.”

The thread was divided with opinions. “Usually Vogue Mexico online photos are of poor quality, but in the print edition look better. I hope so!” wrote IndigoHomme.

“I quite like it too, especially for Vogue Mexico. Is everyone else saying they hate it simply because it is Vogue Mexico, or because it’s Toni?” questioned a positive niknak.

While I personally am not an admirer of the cover, at least there’s an adequate cover story to accompany Toni’s cover shot. You can check it out and share your own opinion inside the thread here.

Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl Launch Chadstone’s Icons of Style

Chadstone Shopping Centre has welcomed the world’s most stylish couple, Olivia Palermo and her handsome hubby Johannes Huebl, into the fold to launch its Icons of Style Spring 2014 campaign. A private Q&A with the pair was held at the centre yesterday, Wednesday, August 27, by Harper Bazaar’s Editor-in-Chief Kellie Hush

Although Kellie looked fab in all-red tones with a woven long-sleeve top, leather midi skirt and pointed-toe Mary Janes, all eyes were on Olivia. The fashion blogging socialite stunned in a floaty Burberry bohemian-luxe printed dress paired with the brand’s contrasting printed scarf.

The fashionista used a skinny belt to pull it all together, plus strappy pumps. Olivia’s tousled waves and sun-kissed makeup polished the look off perfectly. Her partner-in-crime, Johannes, looked suave in a smart-casual suit, which didn’t outshine Olivia’s outfit efforts. (more…)

In case you missed it, Volley just got cool. The iconic Australian footwear brand is heading down a much trendier path for Spring 2014, tapping uber-babes Bambi Northwood-Blyth and Tyler Atkins to front its current campaign. You might remember Tyler from The Amazing Race or Puberty Blues and just quietly, we’re pretty happy this bearded god has popped up again for Volley’s new season.

Other than the campaign being easy on the eye, the sneaker brand now has a more fashion-forward feel, with on-trend prints, colours and materials incorporated into the new collection. Think subtly tie-dyed high-tops in hues of purple and grey, leopard prints set against tangerine trims, plus premium grey suede with mustard leather accents. (more…)

Vogue Turkey’s September Cover Is ‘Fun and It Jumps Out at You’ (Forum Buzz)

She’s becoming a firm favorite among fashion industry insiders, scoring the January 2014 cover of Vogue Netherlands, appearing inside Vogue Australia and now Crista Cober scores the September cover of Vogue Turkey. Photographed by Cuneyt Akeroglu and styled by Konca Aykan, the Canadian beauty wears a transparent plastic Miu Miu coat with the collar standing up, covering the bottom half of her face. Crista’s minimal makeup and tight curls, which are styled over to one side of her face, help make for an eye-catching cover.

Our forum members have mixed reactions, though. “Not familiar with the model, I thought it was Julia Frauche at first. I think I like it. The use of that transparent coat is a little off but it somehow works, it also helps that she has really pretty eyes,” commented Cotton.

“It would have been better with a top model. It’s not bad but she’s not selling it,” wrote GivenchyHomme.

MON just wasn’t feeling it: “Wow that cover is a mess. The layout is beyond terrible. Fonts galore. And the hashtag.. please.”

“I like [the] color palette, nothing more,” declared narcyza.

“I love it, it’s fun and it jumps out at you,” enthused TREVOFASHIONISTO, who changed the mood of the thread.

Tinsley V shared his positive attitude: “This is really cool! I loved the first cover so much more though, better colors and had much more impact with the minimal font. I love the use of the hashtag too … crazy how one programmer from Twitter introduced it on his site and now it’s universal to the point of it appearing on Turkish Vogue. Perfect for a pop culture cover imo.”

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has really shown her love for Australian label Lover while she was in Sydney this week. She sported a silk and lace Lover dress for ModelCo’s natural skincare launch and has also been snapped in this all-black ensemble from the brand’s Spring 2014 collection.

The business-chic attire Rosie was snapped in included Lover’s black wrap jacket and leather trousers from its latest collection. We love that the Victoria’s Secret model was able to incorporate leather into the outfit without looking too sexy, which is no easy feat with a bod like hers.

She teamed the look with black pointed-toe pumps, her favourite Chloe bag and pulled-back hair. We’re so happy that Rosie supported Lover while in Sydney. Here’s hoping she continues to rock the Aussie brand abroad.

Alannah Hill’s New Design Team Launches Spring 2014 Collection

The iconic Australian fashion label Alannah Hill launched its Spring 2014 collection on Wednesday, August 27, with a runway show at a swanky club in Melbourne called Ms Collins. It was a big night for the brand and its new design team, which includes Creative Director Dimitria Papafotiou. She has big shoes to fill — the label’s founder, Alannah Hill, lost the rights to the company back in October 2013. Confusing, we know.

In the lead-up to the event, the high-end label wrote to its Facebook page, “See the Alannah Hill legacy transform into an exciting new era of fashion.” So we can expect some big changes in the designs Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen, Courtney Love, Nicole Kidman and Kylie Minogue have grown to love.
