Beloved Latin singer Selena is getting her own makeup collection. M.A.C cosmetics is honoring the late crooner, who was shot by her fan club president Yolanda Saldívar in 1995, with a dedicated makeup collection due out late next year. It seems that fan support was a deciding factor, as M.A.C mentions in an Instagram post announcing the forthcoming range. “Like the legend herself, Selena Quintanilla’s fans are an inspiration to us all for their love and enthusiasm. It’s happening!”

M.A.C’s creative director James Gager sounds quite excited for the collection. “We have heard the passion and enthusiasm from her fans and wholeheartedly agree that her legacy embodies M.A.C’s philosophy.” According to Selena’s sister Suzette Quintanilla, starting a makeup line was a dream of the singer’s, so this tribute collection posthumously fulfills one of Selena’s dreams. “Helping to create this collection brings me back to all those late-night conversations on our tour bus when she spoke of having her own makeup line one day. If Selena were here she would be beyond ecstatic to have this happening. History is being made.”

We can’t wait for the collection to drop. We’re expecting to see a color for Selena’s signature red lip and perhaps a lot of pretty neutrals and certainly a brow pencil to help create her deeply pigmented slender brow.

Look out for the collection in late 2016.

Only Lara Stone Could Pull off the Makeup in Kurt Geiger’s Fall Campaign (Forum Buzz)

If there’s one thing we learn when the advertising campaigns roll out, it’s that not only Prada, Gucci and Louis Vuitton can knock out show-stopping imagery. Kurt Geiger‘s Fall 2015 campaign is proof that lesser-known brands are high contenders, especially when tapping the likes of Lara Stone, who works the lens of Erik Torstensson like there’s no tomorrow. U.K. Vogue‘s August cover girl appears as though she just stepped off the set of a Robert Palmer music video back in the 80s, sporting a dramatic makeup look complemented by a platinum shade of blonde, which works beautifully with the dark atmosphere.

The campaign was an instant hit. “Love this! Has that harsh 70s makeup and lighting look to it,” described justaguy.

“Wow, she looks very harsh and fierce in these shots! Somehow it actually works,” Benn98 confessed.

In agreement over how fabulous the images are was perhydrol: “I usually don’t like Lara, but she looks really hot here and it’s not fake. Her look sells those accessories, everything is eye-catching and I like this direction for the brand because it works. Just fabulous.”

Forum member simon showed the campaign some love too, admitting, “Lara looks incredible.”

“That makeup is all sorts of wrong (the angle of the contour is just wrong) but somehow, in a very weird way, Lara pulled it off. She looks hot,” declared MON.

Kate Moss for Etro’s Fall 2015 Campaign Is Surprisingly Good (Forum Buzz)

Our forums are notorious for complaining about the same old, same old, yearning for something new and innovative. But Etro has just unveiled a campaign for Fall 2015 that proves change isn’t always better. In what’s most likely to be the shock of the season, Kate Moss becomes the new face of the Italian luxury fashion house. Etro’s previous campaigns have been slandered for being static and unoriginal. The brand is set to lift the curse after tapping the British supermodel, who was photographed doing what she does best while lying on a bed of busy prints for Mario Testino.

Our forum members continue to express their genuine amazement. “I like the styling and the change for Etro is good — great campaign,” raved a delighted testinofan.

“When I read the thread title I was hoping that Kate would save Etro by Testino of being boring and using the same-old and indeed, I quite like this. It has a [Roberto] Cavalli vibe but still… I like the textures,” admired an impressed kokobombon.

Also pleasantly surprised with the result was Chanelcouture09: “I really love the freshness! Kate brings her effortless, bohemian aesthetic to this perfectly and I would not have thought this was by Mario,” he confessed.

“Kate saves it,” announced HelaFav5.

Did Vogue Russia Just Publish the Worst Cover of the Year? (Forum Buzz)

On our forums, Vogue Russia is considered to be very hit or miss. Its past two covers featuring Catherine McNeil and Lindsey Wixson seemed to successfully raise the bar in terms of creativity, but its latest issue appears to have taken four steps backward. The magazine welcomes Daphne Groeneveld back on its cover, marking the Dutch model’s second appearance. Photographed by Jason Kibbler, the Tom Ford favorite brought some drama and movement to the cover shoot styled by Olga Dunina, but the end result falls flat.

Forum members ripped into the cover the moment it dropped. “I don’t get Daphne. She’s not sexy nor does she look like a grown up woman to justify these kind of poses we always see her making. The cover looks too dark and busy,” condemned anlabe32 right away.

“I adore Daphne but when they do these type of photos with her it doesn’t appeal to me, just seems forced,” TeeVanity added.

In a state of shock was Creative: “So you are telling me that a so-called fashion professional said yes to this. OK.”

Also unamused was justaguy, who ranted, “Love me some Daphne, but this cover is a mess. Trying too hard to make her look sexy.”

RickO even went so far as to declare, “Worst Vogue cover of the year!!!!”

“To be honest, as long as Victoria Davydova is still seated at the helm of Vogue Russia, all the other under performing Vogue EICs need not worry about their jobs. Y’all can still sleep at night!” laughed MON.

Rachel Zoe fans, rejoice! Your favorite style guru is headed back to the small screen, this time joining forces with Lifetime.

Naturally, Zoe will be inviting other celebrity guests to join her on the show for each episode for a panel discussion. Zoe’s show is set to premiere in September, right in the middle of fashion month, so there should be plenty to talk about once the show actually starts. “The show will take a look at my weekly fashion and pop culture obsessions—and a few things I’m kind of over,” Zoe said in a post on The Zoe Report. “In other words, it will be like a typical day at my Los Angeles office—only with slightly better lighting.” Zoe also mentions the program will be filmed in the penthouse at her office in a short video she posted to announce the show.

You’ll be able to catch Fashionably Late at 10:30 starting September 24.

Katy Perry to Front H&M’s Holiday Campaign

Katy Perry seems to be raking in the fashion campaigns. The singer is the face of Moschino’s Fall 2015 campaign – a rather unsurprising choice given her close relationship with creative director Jeremy Scott. Not only will Perry be serving you popstar realness with the Italian label through the fall season, but she will also be spreading holiday cheer and encouraging mass consumption on behalf of H&M, who has tapped the singer as the face of its holiday campaign.

Katy Perry might have designers like Scott at her beck and call, but she says her personal style was born at H&M. “H&M was one of the places where I first began cultivating my personal style. I have continued to love integrating H&M pieces into my wardrobe throughout the years,” she said. 

Perry announced her involvement with the Swedish retailer with a post on Instagram. “Ladies, Gentlemen & unlabeled – let’s take a petite pause on the beauteous summer we are experiencing & open our calendars tooooo…THE HOLIDAYS,” she wrote. “I am excited to announce that I will be starring in @hm‘s #HappyandMerry Holiday Campaign launching later this year!!! Stay tuned for the whole unwrapping!”

We’ll be watching closely as more images from the forthcoming campaign leak out.
