Vogue Hommes’ Spring/Summer 2015 Cover Is Perfect Thanks to the Casting (Forum Buzz)

Fashion magazines for men rarely make an impact on our forums, but with the release of Vogue Hommes‘ Spring/Summer 2015 cover, our forums were set ablaze. The biannual style and lifestyle title continues to push the boundaries of menswear fashion photography, enlisting the help of male models Clement Chabernaud, Benjamin Eidem and Tim Schuhmacher to shift copies off the newsstand, and we think the formula has worked like a charm! Willy Vanderperre photographed the trio wearing black tuxedos, styled by Olivier Rizzo, resulting in each model looking devilishly handsome.

Forum members were quick to respond once the cover surfaced. “Fantastic!!! Their best one so far!! It looks so chic and so polished,” hailed MON, about to set the tone of the thread.

“Amazing cover. Nice to see these three together,” added an impressed Style Savvy.

Also a fan of the casting was Marc10: “What a trio. Simply fantastic.”

HeatherAnne was quick to show the cover some love by commenting, “Perfectly posed, they look fantastic. Willy can do no wrong.”

“This cover is just making me smile from ear to ear. It’s perfection,” sweetpop raved, sharing the same sentiments.

“This is a must have,” declared simon.

“Might be the first Vogue Hommes I buy in a long time thanks to this wonderful cover. Very fresh and striking without being in your face. The composition is fantastic and so is the cast of course. Can’t wait to see the contents,” enthused an excited Wolkfolk.

Rihanna on Her New, Historic Dior Gig

It’s hard to believe that after all these years, Dior is just getting around to hiring a black campaign star. But the one it chose is a doozy: Rihanna is set to appear in an upcoming campaign for the label, and the significance of the new gig is not lost on the songstress.

“It is such a big deal for me, for my culture, for a lot of young girls of any color,” she told MTV. “I think to be acknowledged by Dior means a lot, as a woman, to feel beautiful — to feel elegant and timeless.” And Riri will be showing just how elegant and timeless she is in the label’s next “Secret Garden” film, shot by Steven Klein at Versailles. We have no doubt she will nail it.

While we wait to see the historic end result, here’s hoping that Rihanna’s appearance will serve as a gateway for other black women to front the brand (ahem, Taraji P. Henson).

LVMH Announces 8 Finalists for Young Fashion Designer Prize

We’re getting closer to finding out which talented emerging designer will be the next to win LVMH’s coveted Young Fashion Designer award. This group of eight handpicked brands will compete for a prize of €30,000 and a year-long mentorship with an LVMH team in order to help get their label to the next level. Last year, Thomas Tait took home the big prize and two runners-up (Hood by Air and Miuniku) received €10,000 and a mentorship as well.

This year’s list of top contenders includes Milan-based label Arthur Arbesser, Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant’s Coperni, London menswear designer Craig Green, French designer Faustine Steinmetz, buzzy French brand Jacquemus designed by Simon Porte, Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida’s Marques’Almeida, the Paris-based brand Vetements designed by Demna Gvasalia and a team of Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts grads and Virgil Abloh’s Off-White label.

Interestingly enough, all of these brands, regardless of where the designers are from, are based in Europe — either London, Paris or Milan, a far cry from last year’s crop of finalists, who designed in cities like New York, Mumbai and Moscow. But despite the finalists’ gravitation toward creating in Europe’s fashion capitals, they all hail from different countries, including the U.S., Georgia, Portugal, France, Austria and the U.K.

The final winner of the prize will be selected in May by a jury of nine LVMH artistic directors.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that the app has been pulled from Apple’s Australian and U.S. app stores, and that the 26-year-old’s publisher, Penguin, is pulling her debut cookbook, The Whole Pantry, from circulation in Australia. U.S. publisher Atria Books is also claiming to scrap next month’s book launch and cancel existing orders.

A version of The Whole Pantry app is still available for Android users through the Google Play store, and it is unknown as to whether it will be a default app on the forthcoming Apple Watch as planned. (more…)

19-year-old model Gigi Hadid is denying any drug-taking behaviour at the Victoria’s Secret Spring Break Party in Miami over the weekend, after boyfriend Cody Simpson‘s snapchat caught her in a compromising, cocaine-snorting position.

The model magnate seems to be pretty bloody offended that anyone would suggest she’s sniffing the same path as Kate Moss, taking to her Twitter for a series of tweets to set the record straight. (more…)
