Lisa Wilkinson Wants a Minister for Women Who Isn’t Tony Abbott

Today Show host and all-round boss when it comes to political issues Lisa Wilkinson has a prominent voice within the Australian media industry, and, much to our delight, it’s usually an opinion which wants to be heard. Especially by fellow women.

Speaking to Daily Life, Wilkinson expressed her concerns over domestic violence against women and gender inequality in our country. “We’ve got a crisis in this country when it comes to domestic violence; our figures, shamefully, are that one woman dies every week at the hands of a partner,” she said. “And we have a gender pay gap that’s the largest it’s been in 20 years. We need to focus on these issues.” (more…)

Hilary Rhoda’s Vogue Ukraine Cover Is Dated, but in the Best Possible Way (Forum Buzz)

We always complain when magazines deliver a messy and chaotic cover shot and Vogue Ukraine clearly heard our cries when considering its July cover image. After last month‘s disaster, the title asked Hilary Rhoda to pose before the lens of Jack Waterlot, delivering a minimalist fashion spread for the occasion. On the cover, Hilary wears a glistening top and skirt by Oscar de la Renta and sports pieces from BalmainAkris and Alexander Wang in the cover story.

Forum members couldn’t wait to add their two cents. “This looks so dated. Like it’s a reprint from Vogue Japan circa 2006. Vogue Ukraine needs to try harder,” announced MON, who soon was left standing alone as more positive reviews began to flood in.

“Love the cover shot! It’s very dated, but a refreshing angle for them. Hilary is great at posing and that smile draws you right in,” applauded Benn98.

“I think it is their best cover in months although it looks like a cover from 15 years ago,” added GlamorousBoy.

Forum member gazebo was quick to show the cover some praise, writing, “It’s not bad at all. Very clean and tidy.”

Also full of admiration was DutchHomme: “I like it…very simple & Hilary made it work.”

In agreement was TeeVanity, who simply stated, “It really is a beautiful cover.”

“I think the cover is amazing. So sleek. It does feel late 90s/early 00s but in the best way possible. Hilary looks really good,” raved MyNameIs.

Be sure to check out Hilary’s accompanying cover story, which is even better than the cover shot, right here inside our thread.

Of Course Kendall Jenner Has Her Own Shade of Estée Lauder Lipstick

Kendall Jenner’s latest contribution to Estée Lauder, besides 29.2 million followers on Instagram, is a new shade of red lipstick. The reality TV star-turned-model announced the release of her very own shade of Pure Color Envy Matte Sculpting lipstick, which Estée Lauder calls “part poppy, part orange crush, all matte, all Kendall.”

The shade is a limited-edition reddish-orange hue called Restless, which Jenner advertised on her Instagram earlier today. The bottle for the $30 shade has Jenner’s signature on it, so you can remember who created the shade every time you reach for a tube. 

It’s actually the perfect shade for the season – a coral lip is always a great way to rethink a traditional red once the weather gets warmer. And given the Kardashian-Jenner clan’s uncanny ability to move product, we wouldn’t be surprised to see this one fly off the shelves. You can buy the shade now at Estée Lauder.

Kanye, Kendall and Riccardo Tisci Star on Vogue Japan’s ‘Strange’ August Cover (Forum Buzz)

After Vogue Japan‘s ordinary July cover with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the magazine finally brings the excitement with its newly-unveiled August 2015 installment (yes, August covers already). In an unexpected turn of events, the Japanese title tapped Riccardo Tisci and his Givenchy gang to sit in a yearbook formation for photographic duo Luigi & Iango, making for an interesting subject. Tisci asked Kanye West, Kendall JennerJessica Chastain, Joan Smalls, Jamie Bochert, Akimoto Kozue and Mica Arganaraz to pose alongside him, but we’re far from impressed.

“What a strange cover. Are they trying to look like Vogue Italia with the black frame? And what is Jessica doing here? And Kanye? I mean, I can understand if it’s Tisci with his models but I don’t think adding Kanye and Jessica really brings something to the cover,” voiced Oxymore.

“This is just as lazy as it could get. Were they too lazy to think of a theme so they just thought of Tisci and asked him to bring seven people with him? I just can’t anymore. What is happening with Vogue Japan? I am really bothered. They continue to lose their identity and their prestige with every cover they produce. After that horrendous cover with Rosie now this? I just don’t know anymore,” MON replied.

Marc10 definitely wasn’t feeling it as he ranted, “God I can’t stand Riccardo and his gang [of] nonsense. So freaking annoying.”

Also finding the situation rather laughable was Edie123: “Simultaneously busy and boring. I guess that’s an achievement of sorts.”
