Natasha Poly Channels Debbie Harry on Vogue Turkey’s October Cover (Forum Buzz)

Natasha Poly‘s on fire this month as the model claims her third Vogue cover. The Russian L’Oréal spokesperson stars on the German as well as the French editions, and is now channeling Debbie Harry on Vogue Turkey’s October 2014 cover. Cuneyt Akeroglu treated his Instagram followers to a preview of the upcoming cover last week, but the preview is a far cry from the official cover image. Natasha was shot in a London residential area wearing a black studded leather jacket, a smoky eye and a platinum blond wig, while gazing down the Turkish photographer’s lens.

Natasha may resemble the American singer-songwriter from the rock band Blondie on the cover, but members of our forums are seeing someone else. “This cover is disappointing. Notwithstanding that awful hair but Natasha doesn’t even resemble herself. I thought it was Aline Weber at first glance,” shared AL92.

“I have to say the preview from Akeroglu’s Instagram looks better and Natasha looks like Aline Weber here,” agreed ash92.

Also noticing the resemblance was KateTheGreatest, who wrote, “Yeah I gotta agree, she looks so much like Aline Weber here. Not her best cover.”

Benn98 was left underwhelmed by the cover. “This is the first time I’m not feeling a VT cover. That preview was misleading. Because of the landscape and mood, I thought it would be something more natural. The main cover is such a let-down. The image is just not cover-worthy, and I’m not a fan of the hair as [it] reminds me of Donald Trump. The hashtag can go plus I hope these will not be the new fonts,” he posted, and even goes on to say, “I’m slowly getting fed up with Natasha Poly covering everything in only a matter of months.”
 
“Who does their layout?? Hashtags?? Oh no. Hell no. The fonts are all over the place,” disapproved a very unsatisfied MON.

A rave review from lalatran stood out from the rest. “This is everything that I need! She is giving [a] death stare like a wolf and the hair, the makeup. Her lips were perfectly drawn on and the badass studded leather jacket… spot on,” he wrote, obviously not sharing the majority of our forum members’ sentiments.

Can You Spot the Photoshop Blunder on Anne Hathaway’s ELLE Cover? (Forum Buzz)

The British edition of ELLE has taken a different route for the November cover, going for a seductive and femme fatale look with its latest cover subject. The magazine tapped Anne Hathaway and enlisted photographer Kai Z Feng to capture the 31-year-old actress wearing a black jumpsuit by Emporio Armani for the cover shot. Anne also posed for a series of images inside the issue, wearing fall pieces from Nina Ricci, Givenchy and Saint Laurent, styled by Anne-Marie Curtis.

The first few posts from our forum members seemed to hold promise for the cover. “I think this is a rather alluring cover. One of Anne’s best in a long time,” shared AL92, kicking off the discussion on a positive note.

“Love it! Subdued sex appeal. The best she’s looked in a while. A triumph for ELLE!” raved Benn98.

Also an admirer of the cover was honeycombchild, who commented, “Wow. I love it. It’s about [time] ELLE upped their game. This looks really strong.”

“Wow, this is sensational. It’s really fantastic, the best cover ELLE has had in a long while and I love Anne as well. Even though I hate their design, it’s not irking me here as much as usual. Great job all round,” proclaimed a more than satisfied LastNight.

Things started to turn sour, however, when Miss Dalloway pointed out a very evident mistake: “Whoa, so no one will mention the obvious Photoshop fail on the left eye? What is that!!! Otherwise it would be a great cover, it’s a fantastic shot.”

“I love her in this kind of styling but ever since the left eye disaster was mentioned, I can’t stop looking at it!” replied Cosmic Voices.

“Is it possible that her right pupil shrank because it was more exposed to the lighting?” questioned gazebo, yet another member to acknowledge the Photoshop mishap.

Can you look past ELLE‘s post-production mistake? You might appreciate Anne’s cover story, which can be viewed here, and don’t forget to add your own comment inside the thread, too.

Chanel to Stage Métiers d’Art Show in Salzburg

The hills are about to be alive again in Salzburg, this time with the squeaking of designer running shoes on the catwalk. The location for Chanel‘s much-anticipated Métiers d’Art show has been revealed, and Karl Lagerfeld is taking a trip to Austria to show his next collection. 

According to Vogue UK, the big event will go down at Leopoldskron Castle, a stunning locale commissioned for the Prince Archbishop of Salzburg’s family in 1736The location sounds a little random, but Salzburg actually has a strong connection to the Chanel heritage. The house’s famous little black jacket, designed by its founder Coco Chanel, was inspired by a jacket worn by an elevator attendant in Salzburg. 

The show promises to be quite a spectacle — Leopoldskron Castle is known for its opulent Rococo decor, so we have a feeling Chanel’s next collection will match the show’s surroundings. Either way, it will definitely be a production…probably with a lot of little black jackets.

Foreo Makes a Push for the US, Brings on Competition for Clarisonic

Beauty company Foreo is about to take the United States by storm and give Clarisonic some competition stateside. The makers of the LUNA face cleansing brush ($199) have sold its products at Sephora.com and Foreo.com, but WWD is reporting that the Swedish company is setting up an American headquarters with manufacturing facilities in Las Vegas. This is the result of the company’s efforts to roll out its LUNA device across 1,500 locations around the country, including Neiman Marcus, Ulta, Barneys and Sephora after success in the European, Asian and Middle Eastern markets.

Unlike the popular Clarisonic brush, the Foreo device is shaped like a moon and doesn’t have a brush. Instead, the waterproof device is made from medical-grade silicone. The tiny stubs on the tip of the device pulsate 8,000 times a minute, plus the tool offers users multiple settings and is gentle enough to use twice a day, unlike other nylon-bristled cleansing brushes. The device is perfect for those with sensitive skin, requires a one-hour charge for nine months of usage and starts at $139 for the LUNA Mini, which is around the same price point for an entry-level Clarisonic device.

We hope that you’re buttering your morning English muffin with Brooklyn hand-churned butter in honor of Blake Lively. The actress and purveyor of pricey, handcrafted goods is expecting her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds

Blake announced her pregnancy in tandem with her website Preserve‘s announcement that it will be offering a range of products for expectant mothers. The site published a “Falling for Family” editorial, in which a group of floral print-clad pregnant women enjoy tea time outdoors. At the very end of the series of images picturing women sipping cider and munching on pound cake, we see a silhouette of Blake holding her baby bump. 

It comes as little surprise that Blake would be selling infant and maternity items now that she’s expecting — that seems to be the move for celebrity mothers. Just ask Jessica Simpson.

Congratulations to Blake and Ryan on their first child!

Confirmed! Maison Martin Margiela Hires John Galliano

John Galliano is back in the game. Following weeks of speculation, the designer has signed on the dotted line with Maison Martin Margiela, says WWD. He is expected to oversee ready-to-wear for men and women as well as couture.

This is Galliano’s first full-time post since being handed a pink slip at Christian Dior and his namesake label in 2011 after a racist rant at a Parisian cafe. In 2013, the 53-year-old creative dipped his toe back into the design pool when he landed a three-week residency at Oscar de la Renta. Rumors of a permanent position were whispered, but never confirmed by either party. Last month, the designer served as the creative director for L’Etoile and mentored four students at London’s Central Saint Martins.

Galliano’s official debut for Maison Martin Margiela will be Paris Haute Couture Week in January.
