Gazillionaire James Packer and the woman who makes all our Christmases worthwhile with that one iconic tune, Mariah Carey, have seemingly forged a close bond, and it turns out James’ first wife, fashion designer Jodhi Meares, is all for the new and flabbergasting relationship.

The Upside founder posted an Instagram snap of herself, Mariah and James on what appears to be the businessman’s super yacht, the same transportation that Miranda Kerr travelled on during her time as James’ rumoured lover. “Amore,” Jodhi wrote. It’s “Amore”?! (more…)

With ample cleavage on display, some of Kylie’s 26.9 million Instagram followers started questioning how natural her assets actually are in a mix of comments. Kylie was quick to debunk the rumours with a snapchat video saying, “To whoever thinks I have breast implants… there’s a whole lot of tape in here holding these up.” The video shows her exposing boob tape underneath the Spring 2015 piece.

Head of Zhivago’s PR, Matthew Jordan, said on Instagram that this particular piece was designed with Kylie in mind. “The added bonus is now the Internet is in meltdown thinking she had a boob job,” Matt said, highlighting how great plastic surgery speculation is for brand coverage.

Dressing Kylie is just another big win for the Aussie label, having also dressed celebrities like the 17-year-old’s sister, Kendall Jenner, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga. “We change our goal posts constantly,” Zhivago designer Lara Kovacevich tells theFashionSpot. “Our dream was to dress Lady Gaga and we did that in about a year,” says Lara. “Every time we hit one of those marks we keep aiming higher.”

Cara Delevingne Shows off Her Softer Side on Vogue’s July Cover (Forum Buzz)

Like clockwork, our Cover Rumor Thread became the hub of discussion debating just who was about to surface on Vogue‘s anticipated July 2015 cover. Names like Nicole Kidman, Anne Hathaway and Emma Stone were thrown around, but Cara Delevingne won the coveted role. The model turned actress posed alone on the cover, having already fronted the September 2014 issue with her peers. This time around, Patrick Demarchelier captured the British beauty sporting a Prada dress selected by Tonne Goodman.

What do our forum members think of Cara’s presence? “Great to see a model on that cover! However, she looks very young … like a 14 year old,” DutchHomme said.

“They have styled her very young, but perhaps that’s a very deliberate move to broaden their reach. Also, the chances are as a celebrity rather than a model, she appeals to a much younger demographic than the usual Vogue reader,” replied honeycombchild.

KateTheGreatest also threw in her two cents about the styling: “The dress looks bad, but I think she looks good, maybe because she looks a little softer than usual. Also, I’m glad it wasn’t shot by Testino, he’s gotten really awful.”

“I like this softer side of Cara. It’s very feminine and not her usual tough chick look. I like the hair and that stare is just wonderful. Having said that, that dress is unflattering and the colors are not appealing,” shared MON.

ThatGuyPaul felt a little uncertain about the cover, too, writing, “I really like this, however, the dress on the cover is unflattering and her head looks Photoshopped.”

Benn98 suggested even more post-production: “Wow, she looks really beautiful here, very accessible as well. Just not sure what’s happening with her cleavage (she’s not that busty),” he said.

Did Vogue Netherlands Just Deliver the Perfect Summer Cover? (Forum Buzz)

Admit it, you haven’t exactly been enthralled by the July covers of your favorite magazines. Vogue Netherlands is trying to offer a bit of excitement by handing Dutch beauty Nimue Smit her first-ever Vogue cover (hard to believe after she got her big break starring in a Prada campaign back in 2009). Nimue was photographed by Marc de Groot, wearing a Philipp Plein dress for the occasion. We guess it’s better late than never and thankfully, it’s a strong cover.

Our critical forum members weren’t so sure at first. “It’s boring, it’s nothing,” declared HeatherAnne.

“Probably one of their better covers this year, but I loathe the dress. Must they write ‘new season’ with capitals, especially when in a sentence? I don’t recall this being the rule,” replied Benn98.

Soon, forum members became more receptive. “Nice to see Nimue featured on the cover, it’s nice,” noted justaguy.

GlamVal showed his support and admiration, too. “Beautiful cover, everything is peeerfect,” he enthused.

“So happy for her and I think this is Vogue Netherlands’ best cover yet,” hailed KateTheGreatest.

“This is actually one of the best covers they’ve produced since they started. I love it. It just works. It’s fresh. Summery. And it’s sexy. Very very sultry,” agreed a satisfied MON.

Forum member littlekiki echoed the same sentiments, writing, “So happy for Nimue, she deserved a Vogue cover way earlier than this!”

Adriana Lima’s Fragrance Campaign for Marc Jacobs Is Here (Forum Buzz)

As the first wave of the Fall 2015 advertising campaigns start to roll out, Marc Jacobs unveiled the campaign for his latest fragrance called Decadence. Starring Adriana Lima, the newly-released images are a far cry from Chanel‘s playful advert for Chance Eau Vive. Jacobs enlisted Steven Meisel to lens the images, which feature the Brazilian beauty gnawing on part of the bottle.

Forum members are less than impressed with the outcome, however. “Her poses don’t help this campaign, I hate this preview,” declared burbuja8910 right away, setting the tone of the whole thread.

“Looks like a series of stills from a horror movie,” tigerrouge added.

Also not feeling it was Thefrenchy, pointing out, “I thought the perfume was called ‘Decadence’ not ‘Eau de Vulgarity…'”

“Boring. She looks awkward, not sexy,” noted la veronika.

Nomar agreed that the campaign was a bit lackluster. “I don’t know how I feel about this. Her strong eye makeup really draws your attention and detracts from the product itself,” he noticed.

Yet there were a couple supporters in the mix. “I really like. When you have a beauty like Adriana and a master like Meisel, you don’t need much else. I do get the ‘decadence’ feel from it, it’s not literal. She’s just having a moment with herself and the bottle, which looks so cool with the bag design,” gazebo shared.

“Love! I really like the bottle design too. Hope there’s more,” anticipated vivaglam.
