Our forum members raced to the thread to sing Glamour‘s praises with Nepenthes using the word “beautiful” to describe the cover, hitting us off on a positive note.

“I LOVE this cover!! Plus, Kerry has been racking up the fashion magazines back to back! Bravo to her,” hailed RanThe.

MON shared the same attitude, writing, “What a powerful cover. I love this so much! Michelle looks stunning! She looks very regal even though it’s a simple cover. Her aura shines through as well and I’m so happy that they styled her hair beautifully! She leads this cover. Kerry looks beautiful too! She looks herself and I’m so happy that she’s getting covers after covers!”

As did GIVENCHYlover, who stated, “Not bad for Glamour.”

Also full of love was tigerrouge, who echoed, “There’s been so many supermodel group shots recently, I’m happy to see a cover that goes one step bigger, because that’s certainly some combination of high-achieving women.”

“I bet this will sell like crazy, women love these ‘feminist’ covers. I guess all of them look nice, but I dislike seeing politicians on fashion magazines, no matter if I like them or not, they should stick to Time and Forbes,” noted Srdjan.

“I really resent the positioning of Kerry here, would have switched her, and SJP, it looks like Washington is just barely squeezing to make it in the shot. But all three such fantastic women,” Miss Dalloway suggested.

Kylie Jenner Accused of Wearing Blackface for a Photoshoot

Another day, another Kardashian-Jenner drama playing out all over the Internet. The youngest member of the reality TV brood, Kylie Jenner, found herself in something of a social media storm after she posted a few images from a recent shoot to Instagram. The images show Kylie under a blacklight with luminous skin and pink streaks in her hair – an image some commenters believe to be blackface.

Jenner first posted a snap from the shoot with the caption, “What I wish I looked like all the time,” which some commenters took to mean she wished she was black, pointing to Jenner’s penchant for using makeup to achieve bigger lips, a feature common for many black women. This, coupled with Jenner’s darkened skin tone under the blacklight caused many people to label the photoshoot racist. Commenters quickly called out Ms. Jenner, who deleted the image only to post two others from the same shoot.

“This is a black light and neon lights people lets [sic] all calm down,” she wrote for one of the pictures, which was bombarded with a slew of comments from people lambasting the reality star.  “Every time you change one of your features to look like a BLACK woman we can clearly see you have self-hatred towards yourself,” one angry user wrote. “It’s sick to not embrace what God gave you…you were meant to have pale skin,” another commenter said.

But there were plenty of commenters who see things Jenner’s way. “I feel like this whole thing is idiotic. She made her face dark. How tf is this offensive?” Others simply found the accusations of blackface ridiculous, noting the practice’s historical relevance and arguing that Jenner’s look is not even close to what blackface looks like. “Anyone calling this blackface seriously needs to look up on their history,” one person wrote.

Whether the photo offends you or not, one thing’s for certain: the media storm has definitely given Jenner an unexpected dose of publicity, which to the Karashian-Jenner family is probably not a bad thing.

UK Vogue ‘Could Have Done Better’ with Emilia Clarke’s May Cover (Forum Buzz)

We’ve known for over a week that Emilia Clarke was to grace the cover of U.K. Vogue‘s May issue after a behind-the-scenes video found its way to our Cover Rumor Thread. The suspense is over as our forums were treated to an exclusive first look at the cover over the weekend. Best known for HBO’s Game of Thrones, the British actress was captured by Paolo Roversi in a creation from Christian Dior‘s Haute Couture collection, selected by stylist Francesca Burns. A natural brunette, the Emilia sports Daenerys Targaryen’s trademark platinum blonde hair.

Per usual, our feisty forum members weren’t afraid to voice their concerns. “That weave looks awful. Why are they so obsessed with pink text? Change it up once in a while,” HodanChloe ranted immediately.

“They could’ve done better with Emilia as the cover girl. Vogue U.K. covers are so repetitive,” agreed simon.

“She looks like she just woke up from a very wild night, hungover! The dress was last night’s serving and that wig started to lose all its glue. They should have at least placed the masthead behind her to show her off more, to make up for that awful expression. It seems like they tried to hide her,” added MON, not showing much enthusiasm, either.

Miss Dalloway shared the same sentiments, too. “Whoa, this is actually shocking to me. Let’s get a super beautiful photogenic girl, and do NOTHING with her, just make her hair look even more fried up, and tell her to exude no energy or life!”

Also unwilling to show support was narcyza: “It looks like a student took this photo. Awful cover. Emilia doesn’t look okay here, especially styled that way.”

“This cover is boring, can’t believe that Roversi shot it,” echoed burbuja8910. Oh, dear.

Famed Dermatologist Dr. Brandt Passes Away at 65

Sad news today in the world of skincare as dermatologist to the stars Dr. Fredric Brandt passed away this weekend at age 65 after fighting an unnamed illness, which some sources say was depression. The doctor is the man behind the smooth faces of Madonna and Stephanie Seymour, to name a few. Few details on his death are available at this time, but the doctor was reportedly found in his Coconut Grove, Florida home.

Brandt, who often tested skin treatments on himself, is noted as an early supporter of Botox and has championed fillers in lieu of going under the knife in order to get that youthful look. His own ageless face was a testament to his work and his extremely successful  dermatological practices located in New York and Florida. He also released his own extensive line of skincare products, which includes his Needles No More wrinkle relaxer.

Brandt’s name recently cropped up in pop culture after a plastic surgeon character in the new Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidtplayed by Martin Short, was said to have born a strong likeness to the doctor. Sources say Brandt was none too pleased with the representation, which admittedly looked almost exactly like Brandt himself. 

A year ago, Brandt told The New York Times that his goal with his patients was “to keep people working and feeling vital and good about themselves.” No doubt he managed to pass this on to his clientele.
