Gisele Bundchen Covers Vogue Brazil’s June 2013 ‘Body Issue’

Gisele for Vogue Brazil / via Vogue.Globo.

For Vogue Brazil's June 2013 issue, the publication ran a cover of the supermodel Gisele Bundchen wearing a black leather bikini, photographed by Mario Testino. According to a recent Forums count, this issue marks the fifteenth time the supermodel has appeared on the cover of Vogue Brazil (and her 121st time covering any edition of Vogue), which would be a problem if this were the "Originality Issue" — luckily, it's the "Body Issue," and since Gisele happens to have a body … you see where this is going. 

One notable aspect of this particular cover: the layout. It's very confusing because, like other glossy fashion magazines, Vogue Brazil actually employs a staff of qualified, creative professionals who must have been responsible for conceiving of and executing those slanted, Pantone-swatch cover lines. It's a bizarre choice for a Vogue title, but the format wouldn't look out of place on a more editorial, independent publication. Here, it looks like a very failed experiment … at best. (As VogueDisciple93 put it in the corresponding Forum thread, "If Bayside High School from 'Saved By The Bell' had a daily paper this would be the layout.") But I guess that when Gisele's on your June cover (for the fifteen time), you can afford to take some risks.

Canada’s Only Men’s Fashion Week Enters Third Year

MFW Logo, Men's fashion

Between Toronto Fashion Week, Vancouver Fashion Week and all that expansive land from coast to coast, there are very few fashion spectacles available to men. Sure, you'll see the odd suit and tie parade, or the occasional male model interspersed among the waify female clothes horses, but overall it's a woman's world. At least it is for now as Jun Ramos — the Founder and Creative Director of Men's Fashion Week — strives to address the lack of platforms for menswear designers to showcase their brand.

Ramos is again bringing his calendar event back for its third year come this August 9 - 10. Based in Vancouver, Men's Fashion Week is Canada’s only menswear show, though it gets bigger, better and garners more attention every year.

Nicole Guzzo, Men's fashion

"Our aim is to put a spotlight on established and emerging Canadian menswear designers and be the bridge for international designers to break into the Canadian market," Ramos commented. "I have great hopes for the fashion industry and vertical businesses in Vancouver. It's time to look in the mirror and ask ourselves what our intentions are. Let's be real Leaders, not just in title. Let's go beyond the four corners of our offices and think how we can help improve Vancouver… the city where I live… and the city that I love."

For 2013, the shows are going to be a noticeable improvement on the past, not least because it's relocated to a bigger venue, but also because the event has attracted new sponsors and designer from across the globe.

Some of the featured designers this year include Zuzana Hrubosova, who will unveil her unisex line Touch & Go, featuring special 3D applications that will inform blind and amblyopic people about size, colour and washing in Braille. Also on offer will be Nicole Guzzo's unapologetic, rock 'n' roll creations that continue to push the boundaries of fashion; while the sleek, classic suits of Steve Pelman of Samson Wardrobes suit makers will validate its 60-year reign as one of the true menswear icons in Vancouver.

You Can Help Bambi Northwood-Blyth Design Her First Solo Fashion Range ‘B.BAM’

Bambi Northwood-Blyth

Because she does apparently have some downtime in between flying to exotic countries, partying with the upper echelons of fashion and getting engaged to other frequenters of Sydney social pages, Bambi Northward-Blyth has found a new creative outlet in sketching clothing designs. And now she’s bringing them out of her notebook and IRL with a little help from her friends at General Pants.

B.BAM will be Bambi’s first clothing range as an official slashie (those outside of fashion circles tend not to count ‘Exemplifyer of the Perfect Brow’ as a legit occupation). It drops in stores and online in September, and there’s apparently something for everyone who doesn’t interpret ‘personal style’ too literally:

“Any girl who rocks a street style vibe, is ready to mix and match clothes, swapping with her friends and ain’t too stuck on one trend. The collection is a mash of dress/messy and pretty/tough and is made for all girls, young and old.”

On her influences:

“The collection has a good mix of gingham, vintage cotton, terry-toweling as well as sequins, embroidery and lace. One of my main influences was to make the range like a uniform, having the ultimate shape and design, so I took inspiration from Clueless and other 90s movies and made it more B.BAM style.”

Any sartorial love child of Bambi and Cher Horowitz is one we’re bound to love like our own. And if you want to dip your own foot in that talent pool you can head to the General Pants website to enter your own T-shirt design. Winner gets a taste of fame and a heap of street cred, but if design isn’t where your skills lie you can vote on someone else’s to win a $500 GP gift card.

Bambi’s now-fiancé Dan Single (formerly of Ksubi) has recently launched a line through General Pants himself. DAAN is a paisley-heavy menswear collection drawing inspo from womenswear, which we assume is sort of like the opposite of boyfriend jeans.

Watch (The Very Funny) Amy Schumer on How Women Respond to Compliments

If you often find yourself deflecting compliments (possibly at the same rate you dole them out), here's a sketch from the new Comedy Central show, Inside Amy Schumer

The eponymous star of the series has been attracting praise for her clever, tightly-written sketches and absurdist, often crude sense of humor. She's very funny without seeming mean, like she's making jokes at someone else's expense.
