Selena Gomez Stars in Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2016 Campaign (Forum Buzz)

It’s clear that Nicolas Ghesquière is quite besotted with Selena Gomez, having just recently posed on the cover of Vogue Brazil with the singer, and now she’s starring in Louis Vuitton’s new advertising campaign for Fall 2016. As reported on our forums back in April, Selena and the rest of the Vuitton gang (including the likes of Rianne van Rompaey, Natalie Westling, Erika Linder and Sora Choi) went to Miami with photographer Bruce Weber and stylist Marie-Amélie Sauvé to shoot the Series 5 campaign. Shot against a clean white backdrop, Ghesquière’s loud designs are in full focus.

Yet our forum members simply weren’t buying it. “Eww, why?” asked a horrified SpeakThatJDunn, throwing some serious shade at the casting.

“LOL! I can’t. I just can’t,” proclaimed an amused EstefaniaAbaddon. (more…)

iggy-azalea-c

Just a few short months after Iggy Azalea took to social media to quash rumours of an alleged breakup, the Aussie rapper has announced that she and fiancé Nick Young have officially broken up.

Azalea posted a statement on Instagram, outlining that her NBA star partner had broken her trust one too many times. “It’s become apparent in the last few weeks that i am unable to [trust him],” she wrote.

Despite that, she wished him the best, saying “I love Nick and have tried and tried to rebuild my trust in him… I genuinely wish Nick the best.”

Prada Miscasts Actor Eddie Redmayne as the Face of Menswear for Fall 2016 (Forum Buzz)

Our forums are never afraid to declare their love for Prada campaigns with the Pre-Fall 2016 campaign having just been declared a huge success. But now as we eagerly await the release of the fashion house’s mainline Fall 2016 advertisements, Prada has unveiled the brand new menswear campaign, catching us a little off guard. Replacing the likes of Billy Howle, Logan Lerman and Matthew Beard is Brit actor Eddie Redmayne, who is unveiled as the Italian brand’s new face for the fall season. Photographed by Craig McDean, the Oscar-winning actor just doesn’t seem to be the right fit.

Members of our forums weren’t afraid to call Prada out on this casting mishap. “Looks good but Eddie’s face is so Burberry to me,” reflected testinofan the moment the campaign dropped, recalling the actor’s ad campaigns for Burberry.

“Yeah he doesn’t fit the brand IMO, I see Burberry too. I hate that they use celebs,” added a frustrated SpeakThatJDunn. (more…)

Watch: Supermodel Ashley Graham Shakes Her Money-Maker in This Behind-the-Scenes Video From Vogue

Ashley Graham is living the life. She graced the cover of the iconic Swimsuit Issue from Sports Illustrated (the first plus-size model to achieve such a feat), got to roll around between the sheets with Joe Jonas in the latest DNCE video and designed a truly stylish line of plus-size swimwear that we actually wish came in all sizes. So when we heard there was an exclusive Vogue.com video that provides glimpses into Ashley’s ever-hectic schedule, we were keen to check it out.

The video documents one crazy weekend in Ashley’s life, taking us along for the ride as she journeys to Las Vegas to host the Miss USA Pageant. We’re right with her in the car on the way to catch her flight as she practices her lines while in the makeup chair and applies her own mascara (because that’s what supermodels do). While that might be more than enough to occupy a weekend for us laypeople, she was far from through. Once a queen was crowned, Ashley flew back to New York City to prep for fashion’s big night, the CFDA Fashion Awards. With her trademark humor still intact, we’re treated to a bit of twerking during a fitting plus her and Michael Kors bonding over Spanx. Looking pretty well-rested and not like a girl who just flew cross-country, Ashley dazzled at the ceremony in a black Michael Kors Collection halter gown accented by plenty of glitzy diamond jewelry (lifting her blinged-out hands is her secret workout routine).

For more behind-the-scenes action, watch Ashley’s amazing 36-hour journey in the video above.

Kendall Jenner Claps Back at Stephanie Seymour’s Harsh Criticism

Nowadays many owe their careers to the prevalence of social media. From the community managers who tweet from corporate accounts to the influencers who meticulously curate their own pages to models like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, there’s no question that amassing a following gets you paid. In the case of Kendall and Gigi, that pay amounts to “between $125,000 and $300,000 for a single post across their portfolio,” says Frank Spadafora, CEO of D’Marie Archive, an app that ranks how profitable fashion notables are.

Models with vast social media followings can now make more money on a single post than they do in a day’s worth of shooting. This fact has not escaped the notice of the earlier generation of models, who don’t seem too pleased with sharing the title of “supermodel” with the likes of Kendall, Gigi and Cara. “We [90s supermodels] had to earn our stripes and take our stepping stones to get to where we’ve gotten, and to accomplish what we have achieved… Then it just comes like that for them — but I sometimes believe easy come, easy go,” Naomi Campbell told the audience of The Meredith Viera Show.

Gigi Hadid and Steven Meisel Are the Perfect Match for MaxMara’s Fall Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Gigi Hadid is most certainly on the road to campaign success this season. She’s already fronting Versace alongside Karlie Kloss and her campaign for Stuart Weitzman launched earlier this week. Now comes Gigi’s brand new campaign for MaxMara, making a triumphant return after she channeled Marilyn Monroe in the Fall 2015 ads. Gigi once again posed for legendary photographer Steven Meisel (who is quite fond of the American beauty), taking part in a classic studio sitting sporting air-drying hair and a gorgeous nude makeup look.

Yet the campaign seemed to leave our forum members divided. “Seriously?? How can a model like this rule the fashion world? She’s not sexy nor sensual, just plain awful!” cried a deeply unimpressed congacon the moment the campaign leaked.

“Not even Steven Meisel can make this girl look like a model. She really has no place in the modeling industry. Thankfully this is only accessories (too bad they ditched Amy Adams) so hopefully the mainline campaign is better, WITHOUT Gigi and WITH Meisel please,” added a less than impressed anlabe32. (more…)
