Lindsay Lohan’s Collab with Lavish Alice Isn’t Terrible

Lindsay Lohan is all done with her court-ordered community service, leaving her with plenty of time to focus on moneymaking endorsements and partnerships. Her latest is with British clothing label Lavish Alice, for which she has created a 19-piece collection.

The pieces in the range are a little hit or miss. You’ll find some attractive options, like a suede black minidress with fringe galore or an ivory look she posted to her Instagram, boasting wide-legged trousers and a sleeveless blouse with a peplum extending down the back. No celebrity-designed collection is perfect so there are still some head-scratching numbers, like a tasseled jacket that, if you ask us, just has far too many embellishments for its own good. 

Of course, this isn’t LiLo’s first time in the design chair. After her miserable turn at Ungaro, followed by her 6126 leggings line and, most recently, a collaboration with Civil clothing called “My Addiction” referencing her well-documented battle with substance abuse. Hilarious.

Miley Cyrus’ #InstaPride Campaign Focuses on the Stories of LGBT Youth

Miley Cyrus is looking to boost her image as an activist with new social media movement #InstaPride. The pop singer is teaming with Instagram over the next two weeks “to share stories of transgender and gender expansive people from around the country.”

Cyrus has already begun posting stories to her Instagram featuring Leo, a 19-year-old transgender man who is a college student at the University of Michigan. “I have a lot of different identities. I’m a writer, a filmmaker in the works, a sometimes photographer, a good public speaker, a social media junkie, a Gleek, a feminist, an activist, a movie buff, a dutiful Netflix fan,” he says. “The list goes on and on. As for my gender, I identify as a trans man.”

Of course, Cyrus’ nonprofit for homeless LGBT youth Happy Hippie is also behind the campaign, which launched yesterday. The hope of the campaign is to draw attention to the issues LGBT youth deal with and also make their lives and struggles more visible to a public that might otherwise not see them. “For someone that famous to say, ‘Hey, I’m looking at you. I know who you are, and I celebrate you;’ that means the world,” Mariana Marroquin, a participant in the campaign said. You’ll also find familiar faces like Brendan Jordan and YouTube sensation Gigi Gorgeous in the campaign, whose stories will be highlighted as #InstaPride continues.

Cyrus is particularly passionate about the cause, noting that her celebrity affords her many freedoms that might elude others. “There are women miles away from me right now that are only allowed to show this much of their eyes. I can stand on a stage with my tits out,” Cyrus says. “It’s so unfair that I’m allowed to be like this and there are two men that can’t get married in f—ing Nashville right now.”

Caroline Trentini Dyes Her Hair Pink for Vogue Spain (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Spain continues to go from bad to worse with the release of its July installment. The magazine went through a phase of welcoming unexpected cover stars but brought back old favorite Caroline Trentini for its latest. Caroline looks noticeably different, sporting a distracting shade of pink hair as she poses for Argentine photographer Paola Kudacki.

You best believe the majority of our forum members aren’t feeling it. “What an underwhelming cover image, she can do so much better than this!” expressed Miss Dalloway the moment the cover hit.

“I really want to like it but something bothers me and I can’t put my finger on it. It’s probably the hair even though I like it, maybe it would’ve worked better on a different type of magazine cover. It doesn’t look like Vogue at all,” added KateTheGreatest.

“This magazine should find its identity as soon as possible,” suggested Creative.

Also not feeling it was thatsfierce: “This is bad, [especially] that pink hair. Caroline is beautiful, love her freckles, but the hair and the pose.”

“I was like DAMN Vogue España is returning to its great period back in 2007, when Caroline and other supers were on their covers but this is an atrocity and the pink hair and the lame pose don’t help that’s for sure. Really bad cover,” fumed Bertrando3.

Cosmic Voices wasn’t having any of it, writing, “I honestly don’t think Caroline is cool enough of a model to carry off pink hair.”

“I want to like it…but it just looks inconsistent. I just don’t know the identity of Vogue España,” MON said.

The mag managed to get it all wrong this month. Have your say inside the thread here.

Is Lucky Shuttering Completely?

Things have not been going great over at Lucky magazine lately. After being passed off to BeachMint to form its own entity, The Lucky Group, which launched its shopping site earlier this year, the publication experienced a round of layoffs in February. In late April, editor-in-chief Eva Chen announced that she was stepping down from her position at the publication and shortly after, Lucky cancelled its LuckyFABB conference and announced that it would be transitioning into a quarterly magazine.



All that repositioning seems to have been for nothing. According to the The Daily, the Lucky Group is shuttering completely and will be firing all its staff. Lucky staffers are expected to get two weeks’ severance pay. Though Lucky magazine has been floundering for a while, it is still very sad to see the entire publication shutter. There was hope that creating a more interactive shopping experience might save it, but it seems like the end has truly come for Lucky.

We reached out to Lucky for comment and will update once we hear a response.

UPDATE: According to Racked, the magazine is shuttering but Lucky is still trying to keep its e-commerce site operational. Apparently, an investment deal to keep the magazine afloat fell through, causing the print version to shut down completely.

Non-Hipster Hipster Ricki Hall Says His Style Is Inspired by Homeless People

We can all agree that hipsters are mostly annoying.Take, for instance, Ricki Hall, who has managed to effectively piss off the entire Internet with comments regarding his sartorial inspirations. The tatted up model with the extraordinarily lush beard sat down with the The Sunday Times to chat about his day-to-day. In the piece, Hall outlines how he cultivates his unique sense of style in the most eye-roll-inducing way possible: “I take style tips from everything, even kids and homeless people. They can pull anything together and it just works.” 

Guys, even homeless people can put an outfit together – and they don’t even rely on fancy design collaborations or overpriced contemporary labels. They just dumpster dive and accept whatever clothes the Salvation Army has to give them and voilà – they are the pinnacle of style. For how intentionally chic Hall seems to think the homeless are, maybe he can inquire about styling jobs on their behalf, since, you know, they dress the way they do out of the desire to make a fashion statement, and not necessity.
