Your First Look at Cara Delevingne and Margot Robbie’s Characters in Suicide Squad

If you thought Jared Leto as The Joker was scary, wait until you see the rest of the characters in Warner Brothers’ forthcoming DC Comics-inspired film Suicide Squad. Aussies Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney are among the creepy cast, plus Will Smith, Tom Hardy and fashion fave Cara Delevingne.

Director David Ayer released the image today via Twitter, revealing the aesthetic we can expect from the film when it’s released in August 2016. Playing Harley Quinn, Margot completely transforms into an ice-blonde, dip-dyed piggy-tail wearing character who looks like she’s been spending a little too much time with Courtney Love. Cara, on the other hand, is almost completely unrecognisable as Enchantress, with long-black hair and a face that’s reminiscent of The Grudge. (more…)

Watch Hours of High-End Retouching Completed in Seconds in This Short Video

We already know that most of the images we see in advertising aren’t 100% real. And though we understand that retouching is a regular thing in the industry, it’s amazing to see how much the photographs we see in the media have actually been retouched. A new series of videos done by a professional retoucher shows you must how much work goes into getting that perfect final image. 

Retoucher Elizabeth Moss has released videos showing hours of retouching work condensed down to a few seconds. In the videos, you get to see how retouching experts widen eyes, clean up stray hairs and even add pores to the faces of models. “These videos are unique because none of the high-end retouchers make these type of videos,” Moss explained to Peta Pixel. “So the quality of the other before and after retouching videos available online are pretty terrible and not at all representative of what is typically done on high fashion editorials and campaigns.”

Moss wanted people to see just how the professionals work their magic. But if these videos prove anything, it’s that we all need to stop holding ourselves up to the impossible standards we see illustrated in ad campaigns and spreads. Already beautiful women are subject to hours of retouching, whether they have too many pores or too few. In the world of Photoshop, everyone is imperfect and nothing is what it seems.

Camille Rowe Nude on Lui’s May 2015 Cover Sets Pulses Racing (Forum Buzz)

Back in September 2013 when Lui resumed publication, we knew for a fact the magazine was set to push boundaries, providing both stimulating covers and content. The provocative French title has already delivered unforgettable covers featuring the likes of Gisele Bündchen and Rihanna. Lui‘s latest is sure to stick in our minds for a while too, having tapped Camille Rowe to bare all for the racy publication’s May 2015 edition and we’re loving the result of the Guy Bourdin-inspired shoot.

Lui Magazine May 2015 Camille Row by Luigi & Iango


Our forum members are full of praise. “It’s one of rare magazines that I look forward too. Love the cover, can’t wait for editorial,” raved KateTheGreatest the moment the cover surfaced.

“I love the cover, perfect for summer,” complimented lelaid.

In agreement was DutchHomme: “Gorgeous!! There is something vintage/timeless about this cover shot. One of my favorite Lui magazine covers that I have ever seen.” Then after the cover story found its way onto our forums, he returned and rejoiced, “WOW!”

“Wow wow wow,” KissMiss echoed.

Also full of admiration was kokobombon who wrote, “Love the 70s vibe of the color pics.”

Oxymore was quick to proclaim: “Gosh I love this magazine!”

“The editorial is a total rip off of Guy Bourdin & H.Newton work. They are going to say is an homage of course,” sniggered Frenchkiki, projecting a different opinion.

“I love everything about this. Homage/rip-off/whatever, I’d be more than happy to see more stuff like this in magazines again. Very beautifully done, very sexy and super striking,” Psylocke fired back right away.

L’Oreal Is Killing It in India

L’Oreal seems dedicated to multiethnic beauty and appealing to the growing market of customers from all over the world, of all different ethnicities. While L’Oreal is busy trying to get rid of “ethnic” beauty aisles here in the states in order to accommodate the ever-growing multiethnic market without making them feel excluded, they’re also taking steps overseas to make sure they’re bringing products their international markets will recognize and can relate to.

WWD chronicles L’Oreal’s expansion and tremendous success in India. L’Oreal is growing at lightning-fast speeds in the country, two and a half times as fast as the Indian beauty market itself. They credit their success to paying attention to the already-established beauty practices and staples in the country and including them in new products, or figuring out ways to improve on them. Take for example, their Colossal Kajal eyeliner, which draws from India’s centuries-old tradition with Kajal (which some might know as Kohl) eyeliner. The product has been wildly popular since they introduced it in 2011. New products they are introducing products to the market include cream hair dye, hair conditioner and face wash for men and it’s been paying off. in 2014, L’Oreal’s sales in India were at the tune of $31 million.

It seems that L’Oréal’s strategy for dominating the beauty industry lies in actually listening to their customers instead of imposing foreign traditions on them. Between India and their newfound commitment stateside to the multiethnic customer, L’Oréal is  making a statement that rejecting the status quo can have quite lucrative returns.
