Lily Donaldson Is Pretty In Prada on UK ELLE’s August 2015 Cover (Forum Buzz)

Your local newsstand is set to be model central as yet another British publication hands its August cover to a model instead of another overused celebrity. Lily Donaldson graces the cover of U.K. ELLE‘s recent offering, modeling a fabulous pink Prada number. Captured by Kai Z Feng and styled by fashion director Anne Marie Curtis, we’re getting flashbacks of Lily’s ethereal British Vogue cover from back in March 2009.

“Glad to see a supermodel on a major cover. Looks very ELLE, they play it safe but the outcome is great. I’ve bought a few British ELLE‘s this year, I will get this one too,” enthused Srdjan, getting us off to a healthy start.

“Colors just blend beautifully and Lily sure does look stunning here,” raved justaguy.

Also showing great enthusiasm toward the cover was MON: “Perfect!! Perfect! She looks like a goddess! Oh my goodness.”

“Despite the fact that I don’t like her personally this is a great cover,” admitted gossiping as things began to turn a little sour.

Oxymore certainly wasn’t a fan, ranting, “The face she’s making! She’s just staring at the camera with no emotion at all. She looks dead but I like the colors. Lily is doing that face every time it’s really annoying.”

Sharing the same sentiments was marsnoop2. “She always just looks like a pretty doll, I’ll never understand her success,” she declared.

Are you a fan of the cover? Be sure to add your own two cents here.

Is Cailtyn Jenner having the best year ever? Perhaps. After making her debut on the cover of Vanity Fair and being announced as the recipient of the ESPY’s Arthur Ashe Courage Award, she has now been bestowed another honor, this time from across the pond.

Jenner has been included on the Women’s Hour Power List of 10 female influencers. Jenner joins familiar names like Anna Wintour, Sia and Angelina Jolie for this esteemed honor. This year’s crop of women were chosen based on the impact they have had on women’s lives “not just because of their job title but because of their personal ability to influence others.”

Jenner, who is believed to be one of the most famous transgender women in the world, seems to fit the bill quite nicely. After all, her coming out certainly boosted visibility for transgender people and sparked a national conversation. However you feel about her and her privilege, it cannot be denied that she made people more aware of transgender issues. Hopefully, her high-profile status will help improve life for transgender men and women who face very real challenges like employment discrimination, sexual violence and more. The conversation does not begin and end with Caitlyn Jenner, but her pop culture cred makes the discussion a bit louder for many people.

Chrissy Teigen Falls Victim to Instagram’s Anti-Nipple Policies

Chrissy Teigen is the latest celebrity to show support for team nipple. The Sports Illustrated model recently posed in a spread for W magazine, which, like many shoots involving Teigen, required her to be topless. Teigen shared the photos on her Instagram page, but they were promptly removed by the social media site. Determined to post her images, Teigen clapped back by filtering them to look like paintings and pencil sketches in an effort to get around Instagram’s nipple ban. Instagram’s community guidelines say that nipples are permitted as long as they are part of paintings or sculptures. 

Teigen’s ruse couldn’t fool the folks at Instagram though, who removed those photos as well. She might have lost this battle, but Teigen certainly brings to light the sexist double standard Instagram holds when it comes to the female body. If oil paintings and drawings are OK because they are art, why the ban against artistic photography? 

We clearly have a long way to go in the fight to #freethenipple on Instagram, but at least there are women out there standing up for their bodies, trying to destigmatize the naked breast in our society.

The Dion Lee for Target capsule collection is here! Well, almost. The range launches at 8 p.m. AEST tonight, July 1, so you best be hanging on your computer from approximately 7.45 p.m. if you want to nab yourself a piece.

If the Missoni for Target range is anything to go by, we can expect this to sell out ASAP, and the Target website could crash in the process. “We are thrilled to launch the Dion Lee for Target collection online tonight to our customers, and are expecting the range to sell quickly,” Target’s Managing Director, Stuart Machin, said. “The Dion Lee for Target collection delivers modern, designer womenswear at an affordable price, and it is a range our customers will love.”

The 36-piece women’s collection is part of the ‘Designers for Target’ program and features day-to-night clothing, loungewear, performance wear and accessories. The prices range between $25 and $119, in sizes 6 to 16.

If you happen to be captivated by an episode of The Voice or some other Aussie reality show which won’t make you nearly as happy as a Dion Lee for Target piece will, then you can try and find yourself something in Sydney stores from July 2. Good luck!
