Ciara Is Topshop’s New U.S. Brand Ambassador

New boo and now a new gig. Ciara has been killing it as of late and her latest endorsement is just another notch in the singer’s belt of fashion creds. Topshop has named the crooner as its latest brand ambassador for the USA, which Cici revealed with an Instagram post yesterday. In the image, we see Ciara with Topshop CEO Sir Phillip Green, grinning from ear to ear. It is the smile of a woman who just made a nice stack of cash.

Ciara is a perfect choice – she’s modern and she’s something of a muse for designers, particularly Riccardo Tisci, with whom she has quite a friendship. Ciara has already cemented herself as something of an R&B It girl in the fashion world, recently appearing in a campaign for Roberto Cavalli.

We can’t wait to see what fierceness Ciara serves up as the face of Topshop!

Lui’s Nude Marie de Villepin Cover Is Its ‘Worst to Date’ (Forum Buzz)

Ever since the start of 2015, we’ve became huge supporters of Lui. The magazine has been consistent in producing captivating and visually stimulating covers and tapping the likes of Camille Rowe and the gorgeous Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Unfortunately, the racy title appears to have taken four steps backwards with the release of its July/August issue. Marie de Villepin poses in a rather gimmicky cover shoot with a nipple out while strumming a guitar.

Members of our forums are far from impressed. “I suppose people won’t care about her more controversial father, lol. The cover shot looks very amateur, and the baring boob actually looks out of place,” Benn98 discredited.

“I wanted something new from them but not this tragic!” said a horrified MON.

Also unimpressed was KateTheGreatest: “One of a few ones that I don’t like. I don’t even know who this woman is and to be honest I don’t care. Bring back models,” she campaigned.

Miss Dalloway agreed, adding, “Yes, excuse me while I pretend to play my guitar with my boob out! The worst cover from them in a long time!”

“She’s the daughter of a big French politician and used to be dating Amber Heard but that cover is terrible. It looks fake,” Oxymore exclaimed soon after.

Echoing the same sentiments was justaguy: “This is just bad. They’ve had a couple tacky covers in the past, but this is their worst.”

“This is horrific how was it even allowed to be published? The magazine needs to be careful if they wish to maintain a credible reputation,” suggested mcmarket.

Check out (if you dare) Marie’s accompanying cover story and join the conversation here.

The world is on the edge of its seat waiting for the next Hunger Games film to drop, which means we’re going to be seeing a lot more of Jennifer Lawrence and her hilarious antics – not that we’re complaining. Last night, Lawrence hit Conan with her co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson for a sit-down, during which it was revealed that Lawrence sometimes likes to break into song. And we mean, who doesn’t? But when J.Law spontaneously belts it out, the world listens.

Lawrence admitted that one of her favorite songs to sing is Believe by Cher, before blessing us with a short (hilarious) rendition of the tune. She got the vocals down pat and everything!

Listen to Lawrence serenade the audience in the video above.
