If you are heading to Myer’s upcoming Spring 2015 fashion show, don’t expect to nab a seat beside the department store’s latest ambassador, Rachael Finch. Rather than sitting FROW, she will be strutting down the run way with the likes of Jennifer Hawkins, Kate Peck and Kris Smith, who also represent the department store.

Rachael may have signed on as an ambassador for Myer back in January, but the upcoming show at Carriageworks this August 13 will mark her first time walking in a show for the brand. Designers including Sass & Bide, By Johnny and Alex Perry will be worn by over 50 models, including Rachael. 

Speaking to Sydney Confidential, the 26-year-old shared, “It’s one of the goals I wanted to achieve and something I’ve had on my bucket list.” She added, “Every time I see the show I’m in the audience watching so it will be nice to experience it from a different perspective. And I love to soak up the atmosphere and bounce off the crowd, so it will be a lot of fun.”

We know Rachael is going to kill it on the runway.

Adriana Lima Works Fringe and Hair Extensions on Vogue Mexico (Forum Buzz)

It’s starting to become apparent that Vogue Mexico is stepping up its game with each new issue. Our forums used to complain about the lack of creativity and originality the magazine projected, but there have been signs of improvement over the past few months. Magazine covers can often be static and frigid, but Brazilian model Adriana Lima certainly shows just how it’s done on the July 2015 cover, modeling a dramatic fringed jacket by Balmain as she works the lens for Russell James.

So, it’s unfortunate that the majority of our forum members weren’t feeling it. “There’s so much going on! I don’t know where to look! Her face is barely recognizable. The fringe on that dress is too distracting. The hair/extensions are all over the place. How long is that hair for it to fly like that? Is she referencing Medusa? There’s no focal point in the cover and it’s sad,” ranted MON.

“Who the hell has taken over the typography for Vogue Mexico covers, it looks terrible. I feel like Vogue Mexico is starting to look more and more like Vogue Brazil,” slammed marsnoop2.

“Given how often Russell James photographs Adriana for Victoria’s Secret, it’s kind of shocking that her face ended up so messed up on this cover,” added a surprisingly underwhelmed orchidee.

Also not convinced was Creative: “I think everything she has done in her life as a model looks really cheap… And I have nothing against her at all, but she just can’t produce something sophisticated.”

Bertrando3 agreed, exclaiming, “Her Vogue covers are never working for me and here she looks unrecognizable and the pose/hair/makeup and layout, it’s a big MESS.”

Vogue Mexico took one step forward and four steps back with this one. Ouch! Share your opinion here.

Gigi Hadid Scores Her Third Vogue Cover This Year (Forum Buzz)

The Hadid girls are set to dominate your local newsstand this month. Both Gigi and Bella pose together on V Magazine‘s Fall Preview 2015 issue and now, Gigi goes solo on the cover of Vogue Brazil‘s July 2015 edition. The title is certainly racking up the high-profile cover subjects, having already tapped Kim Kardashian to exclusively pose for last month’s cover. Kim’s garish shoot is a far cry from Gigi’s, which is subtle and alluring with the Maybelline ambassador‘s natural beauty doing all the talking.

Forum members made their opinions clear the minute the cover surfaced. “How striking and how gorgeous!! That stare just pierces through. I’m really starting to like her,” praised MON.

“Of all the ‘social media models,’ I’m glad it’s Gigi who’s getting all these covers. I’d have no hesitation getting hold of this,” tigerrouge continued.

“What a stunning close-up shot! With that warm filter and that suede top, it looks perfect! Can’t wait to see the full editorial,” added an optimistic miguelalmeida.

Galimatias echoed their sentiments, shouting, “Third Vogue cover this year! She is my favorite of the celebrity models…”

Also giving Brazilian Vogue kudos was Avogadro: “It seems that Vogue Brazil is good at making social girls look decent. I remember that Kate Upton had a really good cover and this is gorgeous as well.”

“Woah, go Gigi!! Such a siren, Vogue Brazil managed to capture her allure. Love the colours,” Benn98 announced.

Feeling the same way was Miss Dalloway: “What a gorgeous cover, she is seriously growing on me. I think she has a potential to be the next big cover girl, very photogenic.”

Guess we’ll be seeing even more of Gigi in the near future! Drop us a comment here

Lila Moss Thinks Mom Kate Moss Is Totally Embarrassing

It’s hard to think of Kate Moss as anything other than the impossibly cool supermodel who knows how to party and isn’t above calling out a basic bitch or two. But to her 12-year-old daughter Lila Moss, Kate is just like other moms in that her antics can sometimes make you want to curl up in a corner and pretend that’s not the woman who gave birth to you.

Lila Moss took part in a Q&A with and dished a bit about her mom, who she firmly says is not her idol. “No, like every mum she’s embarrasing and annoying but u love them rlly [sic].” Though her mother isn’t her top inspiration, Lila does take after her mom in that she hopes to have some sort of career in fashion. “Mayb a fashion designer [sic],” she said “But defo not a model [sic].”

Something tells us Lila won’t have any problem getting help from her mom if ever she wants to start a fashion line. After all, Kate’s got connections with just about everyone in the industry, so getting little Lila’s clothes in front of the right eyes will likely be a cinch.
