Kanye West Styles Super-Weird Shoot Using Kim Kardashian On Piles of Dirt

Just when you thought you were starting to figure Kanye West and Kim Kardashian out, or Kimye, if you will, the pair go and raise our eyebrows for the 1,544th time. By now we all know that Kanye’s totally serious about fashion, and that Kim’s totally serious about showing off her bits, but sometimes when the two combine it makes for one hell of a uncomfortable viewing experience.

A Radiant Natalie Portman Fronts the August Issue of Harper’s Bazaar (Forum Buzz)

Magazines think they’re doing us a favor by producing double issues, but on our forums, we only think of it as another whole month we have to wait for the next cover reveal. The August 2015 edition of Harper’s Bazaar dropped earlier today featuring a beautiful and radiant Natalie Portman, who suddenly feels like a refreshing cover subject for the American title. The Norman Jean Roy shoot certainly feels like a breath of fresh air as the actress warms her skin under natural sunlight wearing a pink Prada number on the newsstand cover (left), while showcasing a full-length gown on the cover for subscribers (right).

Forum members immediately began to sing Bazaar‘s praises. “Stunning! Best Bazaar covers this year,” zoom announced right away.

“This is all I expect from Bazaar. Easy, simple, glamour. Give me lovely looking girls and settings and I’ll forgive them for no longer producing iconic work,” added A.D.C.

“It’s lovely, but what sort of weird shadow is going on, in the newsstand shot?” asked tigerrouge as the attitude started to go south.

Also noticing the blunder was MON: “This is above their standards. She looks beautiful, but what on earth is up with that shadow? Is this a studio shot edited to look like an outdoor shot? The shadow is beyond laughable. Anyway, the subscribers cover is fabulous! Although it doesn’t look realistic, it’s just so elegant.”

Forum member honeycombchild wasn’t so forgiving, either. “The fake shadow on the newsstand is awful. Shame, could have been beautiful. The subscribers shot is a great idea but to be picky, she should have been dropped further down into the composition I feel,” he noted.

“Both covers are stunning, surprisingly,” Style Savvy shared as things got back on track.

Kim Kardashian’s Selfies Get Turned into Works of Art in Hilarious New Tumblr

If you ask Kanye West, he would probably agree that Kim Kardashian is a work of art that should be revered and gazed upon by people all over the world. That said, we think Yeezy would very much approve of this tumblr, Kim at the Museum (created by the Sid Lee creative agency), which sets images from Ms. Kardashian West’s Selfish book against pieces at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for a hilarious clash of highbrow art and pop culture.

Kim Kardashian’s likeness in historic works of art like Andrea Solario’s Salome with the Head of Saint John the Baptist, Francesco Granacci’s Madonna and Child, Gustave Courbet’s Woman with a Parrot and more elevates each work to levels they have never achieved. Because really – what could make a well-maintained 15th-century painting more relevant than an image of Kim Kardashian’s nipples poking through a wet white T-shirt?

See some more images from the tumblr below.

Here are Princess Charlotte’s Adorable Christening Photos by Mario Testino

Princess Charlotte was christened over the weekend and Mario Testino was there to document the whole thing. The famed fashion photographer was the official shutterbug for the occasion and has been sharing some of the images on his Instagram page.

So far, he’s posted four pictures, a portrait of the entire family (minus Prince Harry), a very sweet image of Duchess Kate holding baby Charlotte, an adorable snap of the royal family of four, and a heartbreakingly cute picture of the Duke of Cambridge and Prince George grinning from ear to ear. 

“I am overwhelmed and honoured to be chosen to take these portraits on the occasion of Princess Charlotte’s christening, to carry on the documentation of the family that is the soul of this country, a country that has given me so much,” Testino captioned the first group image he posted.  

It’s all very adorable. Check out the images in the gallery below.  (more…)
