Kendall Jenner Just Scored Her First Vogue Cover (Forum Buzz)

Gigi Hadid beat her to the punch but now it’s Kendall Jenner’s turn for a Vogue cover — and it was a long time coming. Discussion began to circulate inside our Cover Rumor Thread, speculating just when and where the reality TV star-turned-model would bag herself a cover and our forums engaged in an exclusive preview over the weekend. Kendall is joined by Kris Wu on her debut cover, gracing Vogue China‘s July 2015 issue lensed by Mario Testino.

The moment the image struck, forum members began to voice their horror. “What a safe cover. Where’s the creativity?” questioned MON immediately.

“The cover does nothing for me, Testino is boring and Kendall is not a good model,” KateTheGreatest slammed.

Also underwhelmed was la veronika: “She’s always dead in the eyes, no matter what…”

Nomar certainly wasn’t impressed and asked, “How could you do this Vogue China?”

Yet not everyone was so quick to hate. “I quite like the look of this…I’m possibly one of the few people who doesn’t completely detest Kendall as a model. Curious to see the HQ but would probably have preferred it if she was on her own,” shared Bobby153.

“It’s a nice cover and amazing that she got her first Vogue cover. Wonder if she’ll be able to pass Kim’s 3 as the year continues,” TeeVanity said.

JesseDillion was a fan too: “Whether you love her or hate her (personally I’m indifferent) you have to give her credit when it’s due, and here I think it is due here. She looks stunning in this cover in my opinion.”

Caitlyn Jenner Makes Her Big Debut on Vanity Fair

Bruce Jenner Interview

Since Bruce Jenner revealed that he is a transwoman to Diane Sawyer, the world has been dying to see what the Olympian-turned-reality TV dad looks like as “her,” the woman on the inside he has hidden from us for all these years. Well, the wait may soon be over as sources say that Jenner will pose as “her” for the cover of Vanity Fair

Annie Leibovitz will lens Jenner as his true self, an issue which is expected to hit newsstands sometime this summer. We are wondering if Bruce’s big reveal will coincide with the debut of his new reality show for E!, which will follow the former Olympian as he transitions to a woman. 

Kim Kardashian, Jenner’s stepdaughter, has already seen Jenner dressed as a woman and couldn’t stop singing her praises. “She was dressed up, beautiful makeup, beautiful hair, very, very beautiful and very comfortable,” she told Access Hollywood.

We can’t wait to see how gorgeous Bruce looks as “her.” This Vanity Fair  issue can’t come out soon enough.

UPDATE: She’s here! Vanity Fair unveiled its latest cover, introducing Caitlyn Jenner, clad in an ivory corset looking too gorgeous for words.

“It’s not about the fanfare, it’s not about people cheering in a stadium, it’s not about people walking down the street and everyone giving you, ‘atta boy, Bruce’ pat on the back,” Jenner says. “This is about your life. Bruce always had to tell a lie. He was always living that lie. Every day, he always had a secret… Caitlyn doesn’t have any secrets. As soon as the Vanity Fair cover comes out, I’m free.”

We couldn’t be happier to see Caitlyn free and in all her glory! She looks absolutely stunning and best of all, we can follow her on Twitter now that she’s just launched an account. May she bless us with a thousand selfies all summer long.

A few members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan have already come out to support Cait and her stunning cover on social media. (more…)

Kim Kardashian Covers Glamour’s July 2015 Issue

The Kardashian-Jenner girls are set to dominate your local newsstands this month. Kendall stars on Vogue China‘s current offering and now Kim Kardashian appears on Glamour‘s July 2015 issue. We didn’t expect to see the reality TV star on the cover but Glamour has been extremely unpredictable this year, tapping a model (Natalia Vodianova) for April and getting none other than Michelle Obama, Kerry Washington and Sarah Jessica Parker to pose alongside each other for its May installment. Now Kim becomes the magazine’s latest cover subject, returning once again for the Condé Nast-owned title. This time around, Kim, who recently announced the pregnancy of her second child with husband Kanye West, stood before the lens of Patrick Demarchelier while looking more demure than she does on Brazilian Vogue‘s June cover.

John Galliano Says He’s Alive Today Because He Got Fired from Dior

John Galliano has come a long way from the disgraced fashion designer he was just a few years ago. After being fired from Dior for an antisemitic rant outside a Paris café, these days Galliano is making amends and moving forward with his life and sobriety. The designer spoke at a Jewish Culture event this weekend and, of course, talked a little bit about “I love Hitler”-gate, once again reiterating that his substance abuse was partly to blame for the incident, while acknowledging that his personal struggles with alcohol provide no good reason for his behavior. 

“I am an alcoholic. I am an addict,” he said. “This is in no way an excuse. We alcoholics and we addicts are not responsible for our disease. However, I do take complete responsibility for my recovery and making amends. I get a daily reprieve from this disease and that comes from total abstinence.”

Galliano says that he has no one else to blame but himself for what transpired that night, although he did say that working for Dior and creating multiple collections a year did push him to the edge, saying, “I think I would be dead” had he not been dismissed from the label. 

“I used to blame everyone for what happened, but now I bear no resentment. I have finally come to terms with what happened and what was my part in it.”

But there is some non-gloomy news in the Galliano camp, at least for the designer’s partner, Alexis Roche, whom Amal Clooney has tapped as her new stylist. Clooney recently showed up to the Japanese premiere of Tomorrowland in a custom Margiela gown, an event which the house of Margiela says they won’t comment on “just yet.” Perhaps their staying mum means there are future plans to work with Ms. Clooney in a capacity other than red carpet dressing? We certainly hope so.

Jaden Smith went to prom last night, and gave gender norms a proverbial middle finger by wearing a sleek black-and-white dress instead of the traditional tux.

Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s son rocked the dresses-over-pants look, stuck to a monochromatic colour palette, and layered up with a suave black suit jacket. He slayed the fashion game, and there’s no two ways about it. (more…)
