Aymeline Valade Wears the Most Overused Top of the Season on Vogue Korea (Forum Buzz)

Magazines either get it terribly wrong or oh so right. Vogue Korea have cemented themselves as innovators of creativity but our forum members are left divided over the magazine’s recent issue. The title released its June 2015 edition which was quickly brought over to our forms for discussion. Aymeline Valade stars on the cover, shot wearing that striking Christian Dior top while standing among a blooming spring garden by photographer Cass Bird.

“Wow, nothing on this cover is working for me. Aymeline looks so awkward here and the styling doesn’t help and the background is too busy,” justaguy discredited.

“This is not working..” added GlamorousBoy.

Wolkfolk wasn’t feeling it either. “Aymeline I love you but please dye your hair back to black! The disco top is distracting from the peaceful and natural background. A white top would’ve made a much nicer composition,” he suggested.

In agreement was simon: “Too much distracting details on the background. Not loving the tops Aymeline is wearing.”

“The backdrop is season appropriate but the styling isn’t. Also, the backdrop is too messy. One thing I’ve noticed is that Vogue Korea no longer produces edgy covers,” MON contributed, adding fuel to the fire.

Surprisingly, not everyone was so underwhelmed. “I really like this! It’s not perfect but I love that Vogue Korea keeps delivering fresh covers!” approved Nepenthes.

Forum member burbuja8910 showed support also, writing, “Amazing cover.”

Can You Spot the Photoshop Blunders in This Vogue Ukraine Cover? (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Ukraine was in our bad books last month for the awkward Georgia May Jagger cover. Now the magazine releases its latest and we’re still left feeling a little iffy. Shot by Arcin Sagdic, Polish model Ola Rudnicka graces the June 2015 issue poised on the studio floor wearing a floor-length Burberry dress. Our savvy forum members noticed signs of some evident airbrushing, which ultimately disappoints. Maybe those bleached eyebrows aren’t helping?

“Was the dress Photoshopped onto her? There’s something really weird to it. Also, I am bothered with how the image was zoomed. I wish they zoomed it more and placed her in the middle because she’s being eaten out by the text. Vogue Ukraine just doesn’t impress me anymore,” expressed MON the moment the cover surfaced.

“Really bad airbrushing,” agreed Glamorous Boy.

In agreement over the Photoshop was Emmanelle: “Indeed there’s something weird with her cleavage. Problem with Photoshop? Besides that, the cover is pretty, I can’t wait to see what’s inside.”

Things soon started to shape up. “A couple of odd bits, no pun intended, but overall, very cool cover,” enthused justaguy.

“Weird cleavage thing aside (which isn’t even that bad), this is a really cool cover. Very unique,” MyNameIs echoed.

“I don’t know about the backdrop but Ola is beautiful on the cover,” TeeVanity commented.

Nepenthes shared the same opinion, writing, “Her face is stunning! Happy for Ola!”

George and Amal Clooney Are Moving to the UK

The U.K. is about to gain another handsome resident. Too bad he’s already got a wife. Word is that George Clooney is moving across the pond with Amal, to a small town called Sonning, after having thrown down £10 million on a pad, which is currently going through some renovations. The pair is expected to move in at the end of the summer. 

According to Hello, the house has nine bedrooms – perfect for housing any of George and Amal’s fancy friends when they visit –  and is full of dope amenities like a gym, steam room, spa, boathouse, gardens and more. The house is right on the river Thames, so yeah, it’s likely as picturesque as it sounds. 

“I love it and we’re going to have a great time,” Clooney said, saying he will keep busy in the sleeping town which has an “old pub” and a “great restaurant.” Of course, if he and Amal ever get bored, they can jet back to their house in Los Cabos Mexico, where they can chill out with BFFs and neighbors Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber. 

Ah, must be nice…

An LA Sex Shop Wardrobed Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ Music Video

One thing we can all agree on about the “Bad Blood” music video is that the wardrobe is very, very sexy. And it’s not by coincidence that Swift and her feminist heroes (minus, of course, Kendrick Lamar) were clad in such racy looks. According to Page Six, a lot of the outfits were lent to Swift and her crew by a Los Angeles sex shop.

The Stockroom, located on Sunset Blvd., is said to have blessed Swift with $13,000 worth of clothing, $5,000 of which they actually kept. Amongst the several items provided was Swift’s latex flesh-toned dress and Selena Gomez’s black latex blouse with puffy sleeves. 

Like any shop looking to thrive in the face of a major moneymaking opportunity, The Stockroom is planning to make more of the clothes Gomez and Swift wore for the video – a wise decision considering there will likely be a lot of people looking to get their hands on the sexy latex wares. Whether they use them as regular outfits – or for something a bit naughtier — is of course up to the shoppers.
