Say goodbye to the days of poring over obscure Amazon vendors in search of snail cream or blindly ordering foot exfoliators on Sokoglam. The Korean equivalent of Sephora (read: floating makeup islands, tons of testers, a house line of skincare and cosmetics and generous free samples at checkout) has arrived stateside.

Aritaum, a veritable K-beauty emporium, houses all your cult favorite products and more. Stores feature hair, skin and makeup products from lines such as Mamonde, Hanyul (its Rice Essential Skin Softener is, as the name implies, essential), Sulwhasoo, Laneige and IOPE (known as the progenitors of the cushion compact and for its Bio Intensive Essence and Super Vital Cream). The chain, already omnipresent in South Korea, now boasts over 60 North American locations (some still under the name “Amore” after AmorePacific, the stores’ parent company, but those will be rebranded presently), with plans to expand even further throughout the U.S. in the upcoming year.

Amy Schumer Sends Up the Classic Pin-Up Pose on Vanity Fair (Forum Buzz)

Vanity Fair isn’t a magazine we typically turn to for groundbreaking covers, as we’re often given celebrities who are no longer with us or reprints of old photos, like last month’s Meryl Streep image from 1988. For May 2016, Vanity Fair joins us in the present day as it welcomes Amy Schumer onto its cover. Photographed by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, Amy poses up a storm wearing a red corset, reminiscent of past covers from Kate Upton and Caitlyn Jenner

Members of our forums kicked off a debate immediately. “This is horrible in so many ways,” declared HandbagQueen.

“It’s honestly terrbile!” echoed a horrified TREVOFASHIONISTO.

Not everyone was in the same mindset, however. “I like it. They’re clearly making fun at the way women are usually asked to pose,” noted bun-bun, sharing a different attitude toward the cover. (more…)

Cries of plagiarism have long echoed in the aisles of fast fashion outlets like Zara and H&M, but if Céline, Prada, Dior, Marc Jacobs and Alexander Wang haven’t filed a major class action lawsuit yet, far be it from us to concern ourselves with the matter. That said, when one of the most memorable wedding gowns in recent history gets called into question, our eyebrows definitely rise.

WWD reports that, for the second time in four years, bridal designer Christine Kendall is taking up arms against Alexander McQueen creative director Sarah Burton. Kendall claims that her sketches inspired the Dutchess of Cambridge’s 2011 wedding gown, for which Burton was awarded an OBE, or The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire honor, for services to the fashion industry.

Even Kate Hudson Can’t Pull Off This Split-Personality Dior Dress on InStyle (Forum Buzz)

Despite some gripes a few months back, InStyle’s redesign finally seems to be growing on forum members. Continuing to push its bold new design, the magazine welcomes Kate Hudson (for the umpteenth time) to the cover of the May 2016 issue. Photographed by Greg Kadel, the actress shows off a newly cropped hairstyle and a hard-to-pull-off Christian Dior dress.

“The redesign is actually starting to work and it looks classier than the preliminary stages of the redesign. The new font adds so much to the cover. That photo is stunning! The dress leaves me cold, but everything I need is with that smile,” championed MON the second the cover came to light.

“I love U.S. InStyle, it’s my favorite U.S. magazine to read to give styling inspiration and true style that works. Kate looks amazing, cannot wait to buy it,” chimed in glamrockgal, showing the magazine some more praise. (more…)

#LEMONADE The Visual Album Is available now on iTunes, Amazon and TIDAL.

There’s so much that is great about Beyoncé’s new visual album, Lemonade. The magical hour-long HBO special dropped on Saturday night — and with it our jaws and hearts. Like the self-titled Beyoncé before it, Lemonade is not beholden to any industry standard for success (we were this close to actually paying for Tidal before the album miraculously hit iTunes this morning). Bey’s tour de force is more a narrative than a singles-driven compilation. (“Formation,” the final song on the album, isn’t even in the extended video.) (more…)

As far as we’re concerned, if anyone’s allowed to repeatedly get up on a soapbox, it’s Dove. Two days ago the advertising powerhouse launched yet another campaign in its crusade to promote diversity and self-esteem by broadening society’s stereotypical definition of beauty, this time honing in on hair.

According to research commissioned by the brand, 86 percent of women in the U.S. believe that media and society put a lot of pressure on women to have hair that looks a certain way, while three in four women believe they would be more confident if they didn’t feel that they were being judged by their locks.
