Karlie Kloss Moves It for Donna Karan’s Fall 2014 Ad Campaign (Forum Buzz)

She’s a firm favorite of the American designer and now Karlie Kloss has landed Donna Karan‘s Fall 2014 advertising campaign. Kloss is photographed by Steven Sebring for a series of photos, which have also been manipulated into a motion video to coincide with the print fashion spots. The video debuted on Karan’s site earlier today and has already been posted on our forums here. After fronting multiple Donna Karan campaigns, this time around we see Karlie being captured up against a set of mirrors set in a dark atmosphere, all while complementing Karan’s collection of dresses, which are showcased to perfection.

Serious Model Kendall Jenner Walks for Chanel Couture Fall 2014

Kendall Jenner's meteoric rise in the fashion world has showed no signs of slowing since she took the runways last season for Givenchy, Giles, Marc Jacobs and Chanel. Since then, the 18-year-old reality star has found herself pictured in Vogue Paris and Interview, scored a cover of Love magazine and a spot in Givenchy's Fall 2014 campaign. Wether you think she actually looks like a high fashion model or not, Jenner's certainly racking up the credentials to fit the bill.

And today, Jenner hit another milestone in her fashion career. The buzzy model was cast for Chanel's haute couture show, clad in a tweed off-the-shoulder floor-sweeping frock complete with fringe, feathers and jewels with a pillbox topper and bedazzled lace-up sandals to match. Jenner shared a backstage image to her Instagram this morning, posing alongside another model with the caption, "birdies backstage #ChanelCouture."

How interesting to see designers, a few of which were previously wary of the Kardashian/Jenner name using young Kendall so much and in such high-profile shows. She's no Kate or Cara, but one thing Jenner definitely brings to any design house she works with is plenty of buzz. Perhaps the world is still stunned and intrigued by her success so far and are waiting to see how far she can take it. If the past few months of her career are any indication, I wager she'll be riding this fashion train for a lot longer than we thought she would.

Fashion Blogger Jess Dempsey Launches Baby Jewellery Collection

Melbourne blogger and stylist Jess Dempsey of What Would Karl Do has collaborated with fine jeweller Claire Aristides and Australian accessories destination The Dark Horse to create a precious range of baby jewellery. The delicate pieces are made from sterling silver, 9ct gold and diamonds to make up a six-piece capsule collection of teeny tiny bracelets for the little ones.

As a mother of two, the exclusive capsule collection is very close to Dempsey's heart. "I received special jewellery pieces from when I was born and through the years as I grew up," Dempsey wrote on her blog. "Today, they are special treasures that are a part of me and I can’t wait to share them with my children."

Through this special collaboration, Dempsey is happily able to carry on this tradition. "It is actually remarkable timing because I was pregnant when Claire and The Dark Horse approached me, and as a result the heart bracelet was my first gift to my new baby boy," she says. "Each piece is special because it will become a keepsake you will have forever after they've grown out of it."

The mini collection comprising of tiny hearts, miniature crosses and personalised letters is the perfect gift at baby showers, christenings and birthdays. Each piece is made to order and available exclusively at The Dark Horse.

What Does Your Nail Shape Say About Your Personality? A Lot, According to a New Trend

Now that the manicure art craze seems to be dying down, people have to find something else about their nails to obsess over. In Asia, a new trend says that you can learn all about people's personalities, just by looking at the shape of their nails. 

Gamme.com.tw originally published a post outlining what each nail shape means about your personality in Chinese, and RocketNews24 got an English translation to create the infographic you see above. So, here's the rundown.

  • If you've got long nail beds, you're "a mild-tempered romanticist."
  • If your nails are broad sideways, you're a "short-tempered theorist."
  • Rounded or egg-shaped, you're a "laid-back pacifist."
  • Squarish, you're "serious and hard-headed" and "most likely a man."
  • Triangular, you're a "sensitive genius."
  • Almond-shaped, you're "faithful and honest."
  • Sword-shaped, you're an "ambitious idealist."

Whether the chart is actually accurate is another story. It asserts that if you have squarish nails you're "most likely a man" who "doesn't like to give up and has guts." Makes sense, since you know, women don't have squarish nails and are shrinking violets who give up easily, right?

At any rate, at the very least it's a fun way to pass the time and possibly a fun tool to use when scouting potential dates. Oh and remember, beware of square nails on a girl because she's "most likely" a "hard-headed" man, according to this system.

Christopher Lee Sauvé’s Controversial ‘Skinny’ T-Shirt Pulled by The Bay

New York based, Canadian-born Christopher Lee Sauvé is known for his envelope-pushing designs. After all, he was the man responsible for the “Save Anna” shirts in the midst of Anna Wintour’s rumoured 2008 retirement, the current “I was touched by Terry” line as well as a print mimicking Rachel Zoe’s “I Die. Bananas.” (He was served with a cease and desist letter for that last one.) But all in all, his tongue-in-cheek slogans serve to do exactly what the fashion industry needs — to be poked fun at for the oh-so-serious handle it has on itself. No target is too big, but with his spin on Kate Moss’ infamous “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels” quote, has he taken things too far?

Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.

The controversial T-shirt in question was stocked at The Bay, where it featured the supermodel's 2009 comment shown inside a mockup of a nutrition label with the calorie count listed as zero. But it seems the tee was too much for Canadian shoppers to handle and, after igniting some criticism online, the company tweeted from its official account that the T-shirt was being removed from stores and online immediately.

Obviously, The Bay has done the right thing in addressing its customers' concerns, but should this mocking shirt be taken so…seriously? Isn’t the message being twisted into an accusation that it's promoting eating disorders when, in fact, its intention is the very opposite? Sabrina Maddeaux at Now Toronto has an interesting take on how The Bay pulling this shirt is yet another example of its failure to support Canadian fashion. While I’m somewhat unable to see the correlation in this case, I can see how Sauvé's work is misconstrued.

In the wake of the news, the designer released his own statement, claiming the fashion industry is one that, "begs to be mocked."

"Fashion is created to be either celebrated, adored, or hated and deplored. Quite like the industry itself," said Sauvé. "The particular T-shirt in question showcases an infamous quote by supermodel Kate Moss as a nutrition label. Like all of my designs, it's a glorified warning, an ode to the farcicality of the fashion industry and the obsessives that surround it."

"Most if not all of my designs showcase some type of statement pointing out the absurdity of fashion, and this one item is no exception," he added. "I fully understand and comprehend the severity of an eating disorder and I do not condone celebrating such pain. My sincerest apologies to anyone that I have offended with my designs. I believe wholeheartedly in my work, however, and I can't apologize for that."

So, the jury is still out. Do you find this particular shirt to be an offensive glorification of modern day thinspiration or do you, like the designer himself, believe it to be a protest against the general absurdities that are commonplace in fashion?
