Miss World Australia 2014, Courtney Thorpe, has spoken about how she hopes the Australian public will react to her ANZAC-themed national costume today on The Morning Show.

Although the outfit is yet to be unveiled, The Herald Sun has reported it will be a khaki-green pant suit inspired by the ANZAC women’s uniform and designed by Julie Sufi of Belluccio. “Because it’s the 100th year anniversary of the ANZACs, my costume will be very reflective of them, and paying a tribute to them,” Courtney explained in the interview.

Michelle Obama Is Hosting a Designer Workshop

Michelle Obama is the most stylish First Lady we’ve had since Jackie O. She’s helped the careers of so many designers by simply wearing their clothes. Thom Browne, J.Crew and Jason Wu can credit the FLOTUS for boosting sales, and it’s pretty clear that Mrs. Obama is a chic lady. 

The First Lady is hosting a Fashion Education Workshop at the White House, which will link fashion students with established members of the fashion community. The goal is to “bring members of the fashion industry to the White House and enlighten, educate and mentor the next generation of fashion leaders.” 

The event is set to go down October 8 and the White House has invited Prabal Gurung, Bibhu Mohapatra, Reed Krakoff and more to participate. The event will also include a “Celebration of Design” reception. 

We can all agree that an affair educating the next generation of designers is a good thing — it’s a tough industry to succeed in and kids need all the help they can get. Though we wonder why the CFDA isn’t involved. With fashion being such an important part of our culture — and for some of us, a huge part of our day-to-day lives — and having such a large economic impact (in the billions), it makes sense that the White House is parlaying Mrs. Obama’s love for it into education. But we have an organization that already seeks to mentor young designers. Perhaps next time they can join forces for something even bigger? Just a thought.

Who is Photoshopping Beyoncé’s Thighs in Her Personal Pictures?

You would think that after the last debacle, Beyoncé‘s social media team would be more careful about altering the singer’s Instagram pictures. Just a few months ago, Bey was accused of ‘shopping her thighs in an image of her on a golf course. Indeed, the “Partition” singer’s thighs did look a little unusual. Today, she’s being accused once again of tampering with her images.

A recent image of Bey posted to her website pictures her bikini-clad, flash tattoo-stamped body descending the stairs on a very fancy yacht. Eagle-eyed viewers noticed that the stairs in between Bey’s legs looked warped – a telltale sign that some sort of enhancement tool was used on the photograph. 

Why even bother? Beyoncé: your thighs are perfect. Leave them alone. Most women would KILL to have Bey’s figure, so we’re not sure why she or anyone on her team finds it necessary to do any retouching at all. We’re not sure who the culprit is, but at the very least, if you’re going to Photoshop something, try not to make it so obvious.

Karlie Kloss Has Denim Overload on Lucky Magazine’s October Cover (Forum Buzz)

Following the news that the magazine is making the move to digital in early 2015 thanks to its partnership with BeachMint, Lucky‘s print magazine is still chugging along. The magazine has tapped all-American Karlie Kloss for its October 2014 cover wearing a triple-denim look that was photographed by Paola Kudacki. The statuesque beauty currently fronts the October issues of both Vogue Netherlands and Vogue Russia.

Members of our forums are left with mixed opinions. “Nice to see Karlie on the cover, she looks very pretty. It might be a tad too much denim for my liking, instead of being a classic Americana look it may be verging into badly done Canadian tuxedo territory. But I am quite happy to see Sofia Coppola‘s name on the cover, always love reading anything about her,” wrote YoninahAliza.

“A nice upgrade from last month,” commented jal718, clearly a fan of the magazine’s new cover.

Handbag Queen agreed, “Definitely! Finally, a U.S. mag gives Karlie her own cover!!”

“Don’t forget about her Teen Vogue cover,” replied blueorchid, referring to Karlie’s Teen Vogue cover from May 2010. She later went on to post: “All that denim… just… no.”

MON shared her sentiments and didn’t appreciate Karen Kaiser‘s styling of the cover image: “Beautiful cover but… that styling. Too. Much. Denim.”

“Really too much denim, the shirt should be white,” suggested GlamorousBoy.

Are you a fan of all that denim? Check out the thread to see the accompanying cover story and share your own opinion here.
