Anja Rubik Slays in Anthony Vaccarello’s Debut Saint Laurent Collection Teaser (Forum Buzz)

Anthony Vaccarello is set to show his highly-anticipated debut collection for Saint Laurent during Paris Fashion Week, but he has given us a sneak peek at what is to come by unveiling a teaser image featuring Anja Rubik, weeks before the actual runway show. After releasing a series of images back in June featuring a handful of bare-faced models wearing next to nothing, Vaccarello’s latest as creative director has a bit more to look at in terms of fashion. Anja (a long-term friend and muse of Vaccarello) turns up the sex appeal and poses on a bridge above the River Seine in Paris, photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin.

“Anja is perfect for YSL,” declared narcyza. (more…)

Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2017 Runway Was Inclusive and Alienating at the Same Darn Time

We love Marc Jacobs for his reliably diverse runways, his political activism and, of course, his contributions to fashion. However, like many hip designers who draw their influence from “the streets,” Jacobs occasionally lets his white privilege show. Such was the case at his Spring 2017 presentation last night, where Jacobs sent white models like Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Adriana Lima down the runway wearing multicolored wool dreadlocks atop their heads, calling the decision a nod to rave — rather than Rastafarian — culture.

Needless to say, Twitter had a lot of questions for the enigmatic designer and his preferred hairstylist, Redken global creative director Guido Palau. Observe: (more…)

Kate Moss Trumps Gigi Hadid in the Cover Stakes for Dazed’s 25th Anniversary Issue (Forum Buzz)

Dazed is a magazine that doesn’t usually receive much recognition on our forums, but with a cover subject like Gigi Hadid staring back at us from the front cover, how could we not take a look? The title celebrates its landmark 25th anniversary in publication this month and has gone all-out by delivering a selection of covers for us to choose from. Gigi came up first, followed by covers with Kate Moss, FKA Twigs and Pamela Anderson. Only a magazine like Dazed would serve up Gigi under some bed sheets, a hint of her face and body peeking out, while Harper’s Bazaar opted for a conservative close-up portrait. 

However, Dazed‘s new cover failed to put the majority of our forum members in a celebratory mood. “Wow, something whimsical and mysterious for Dazed! Very fitting for their anniversary cover. Don’t care for Gigi, but this is a tremendous shot! All the elements came together rather nicely,” approved Benn98 straight away.

“Quite a nice cover but she could be anyone! I think Rankin did a great job at making her unrecognizable,” laughed KissMiss. (more…)

Radiohead’s Thom Yorke Soundtracks Rag & Bone Fashion Show With New Song ‘Coloured Candy’

Fashion label Rag & Bone has brought Thom Yorke on board to create the soundtrack for its Spring 2017 collection. The Radiohead frontman has written an original new song titled Coloured Candy, which was played during the collection’s runway show.

The track, which features a Fitter Happier-style voice, reportedly takes lines from the newspaper which accompanied the release of Radiohead’s 2011 album The King Of Limbs and it’s just the latest in a series of collaborations Yorke has done with Rag & Bone.

Watch: Kate Spade’s Hilarious See-Now-Buy-Now Video Stars Ali Wong and Zosia Mamet

Opening Ceremony gets it. Kenzo gets it. Kate Spade gets it. The secret to owning Fashion Week isn’t a runway show with a three-hour-long wait (cough, Kanye, cough) or an extravagant party with a guest list whose combined security force puts the Secret Service to shame. It’s self-awareness. It’s humor. It’s creating a beautiful line and hiring sharp-witted #GirlBosses like Carrie Brownstein and Ali Wong to help give it a stage.

This year, Kate Spade New York decided to approach Fashion Week a little differently. While the fashion set bemoaned the loss of the brand’s reliably awesome party-slash-presentation, we knew something great was coming.

Case in point: What could be better than a hilarious, star-studded, Kate Spade-filled show (as in fashion but also TV)? Hoping to reach a broader audience with its see-now-buy-now wares — and really reel that viewer in — Kate Spade has developed an ongoing series entitled “Miss Adventure.” And if the pervasiveness of the term “Netflix and chill” proves anything, it’s that the key to our hearts (and wallets) is scripted mishaps.  (more…)

Lupita Nyong’o Returns to Kenya for Vogue’s Breathtaking October Cover (Forum Buzz)

Our forums didn’t hide their disappointment with the September cover of Vogue featuring Kendall Jenner, but it seems as though the magazine has redeemed itself with the unveiling of its breathtaking October cover. As rumored on our forums, Lupita Nyong’o lends her grace and beauty to Vogue‘s front cover once again, as she makes a much-welcomed return for the third time. Nyong’o was joined by photographer Mario Testino as she traveled to her Kenyan hometown for the stunning cover shoot, which has resulted in a series of wonderfully refreshing fashion imagery.

Our forum members were full of awe and admiration. “One of the best Vogue covers in… years? Decades, even? Spectacular, only a woman with so much beauty, presence and character like Lupita could make this happen. I love that she’s been playing with traditional African headwraps during the Queen of Katwe press tour, happy that they used in the magazine too,” championed Marc10

“This is a MUST buy. I’m blown away. I haven’t been a massive fan of Testino’s recent work but this is breathtaking. I’m struggling to remember the last time I liked a US Vogue cover this much. The makeup, the styling, the lighting…it just feels so authentic and approachable in a way that US Vogue always seems to aim for but struggles to achieve. Kudos to everyone involved,” applauded Edie123. (more…)
