Did Glamour Do Amy Schumer Justice on Its August Cover? (Forum Buzz)

Glamour‘s July issue starring Kim Kardashian no doubt did well on the newsstands. Moving forward, the title taps Amy Schumer for its August 2015 edition, photographed in a blue Narcisco Rodriguez dress teamed with a Stella McCartney bra. Matt Irwin shot the cover and the accompanying story with Beth Fenton on styling duties. The American comedian can also be found inside the issue sporting pieces from Dolce & Gabbana, Lanvin and Donna Karan.

Yet our forum members aren’t exactly thrilled with what Glamour has achieved. “And the really bad covers keep coming,” slammed jal718.

“Genuinely did not recognize who it was on that cover, what an awful photo,” shared an unimpressed SallyAlbright.

In agreement was tigerrogue: “It’s like we don’t get to see any of Amy on that cover, it’s just a shapeless mass of blue fabric and hair in front of her face. They could have done so much better with her. You’d think the team would have some tricks to bring out the best in their cover stars.”

MON wasn’t showering Glamour with much praise either. “How unflattering does this look and it is most definitely not Amy’s fault! She a beautiful, sexy and confident woman and the cover does not embody any of that! I would’ve gone with a form fitting dress to show the world of how sexy her curves are and how proud she is of them. And that wind effect, really? What’s up with the black color scheme lately? It’s too dark and makes their covers look dated!”

“So amazing to see her on the cover, sure they could have done her more justice, but I still like it,” acknowledged Miss Dalloway.

Christian Dior Saddle Bags from the Aughts are Hot Again

John Galliano might be out at Dior, but according to reports, his work for the French fashion house is totally in. According to WWD, there has been an upswing in demand for Dior accessories from the early aughts over the last two years, particularly the famous Dior saddle bag.

Of course, nostalgia has a lot to do with the bag’s reemergence in popularity. A lot of the people making the purchases are millennials who yearn to harken back to a time when fashion wasn’t dominated by Instagram. Vintage sellers like Decades in Los Angeles and luxury resale website the Real Real confirm a steady increase in interest for Galliano-era Dior accessories. And going for around $400 a pop in some places, they’re actually affordable for some fashion-obsessed millennials.

Perhaps the best explanation for the uptick in vintage aughts Dior pieces comes from New York photographer Amy Lombard. “There are so many things I wanted growing up that I couldn’t afford — my mom was not going to buy me a Rasta Dior Saddle bag in my teens. It’s this nostalgic icon in my mind,” she said. Buying the vintage Dior saddle bag you remember from your teens: $400. Retroactively achieving your fashion goals a decade later: priceless.

Cindy Crawford’s Mini-Me Kaia Gerber Signs to IMG, Appears in Vogue Italia

It should come as little surprise that the offspring of a supermodel would be beautiful, or that modeling agencies would be clamoring to sign her. Such is the case for Kaia Gerber, Cindy Crawford’s 13-year-old daughter who has been signed to IMG. She joins a roster that includes Amber Valletta, Alek Wek, Chanel Iman, Karlie Kloss, Kate Moss and more.

Gerber has already appeared in a Young Versace campaign, but it looks like the youngster is ready to take the modeling world by storm. She is featured in a Vogue Italia spread this month, posing for Steven Meisel’s lens, styled by Karl Templer with makeup by Pat McGrath and hair by Guido Palau. Sasha Pivovarova and Yasmin Warsame join Gerber in the hauntingly stunning spread.

Of course, Kaia is the spitting image of her mother – it’s spookily like looking at a 13-year-old Cindy Crawford. And with her genetic blessings, we have no doubt that we will be seeing a lot more of Ms. Gerber in the future.

Ariana Grande Says Sorry for Hating On America and Sneaky Doughnut Licking

The mini-Mariah Carey that is Ariana Grande channelled her inner Homer Simpson on July 4, letting her tongue fall out of her mouth and onto various flavoured doughnuts before declaring, “I hate Americans. I hate America.”

A video by TMZ shows off Ariana and rumoured-lover Ricky Alvarez’ sneaky doughnut-licking skills, with the pair indulging in the on-counter sweetness, and each other, while an unidentified employee is turned away. When the staff member came back with a tray of even more lickable goodness, Ariana and her exposed right side were utterly appalled by the offering. “What the fuck is that? I hate Americans. I hate America,” the singer said. 

She’s really sorry for hating on her home turf, though, telling her Twitter followers that her comment was “said in a private moment” and “was taken out of context”, but added that she is “sorry for not using more discretion with my choice of words”. She maintains that she is “proud to be an American” and has “always made that clear.”


She did take the chance to explain where her disgust at the time stemmed from. “As an advocate for healthy eating, food is very important to me and I sometimes get upset by how freely we as Americans eat and consume things without giving any thought to the consequences that it has on our health and society as a whole,” she explained. “However I should have known better in how I expressed myself; and with my new responsibility to others as a public figure I will strive to be better.”

We’ll probably never look at a doughnut the same again.
