Gigi Hadid Stars on Vogue’s Unnecessary ‘It-Girl Style’ Special Edition for Fall 2016 (Forum Buzz)

Our forums went into meltdown when Kendall Jenner graced the cover of US Vogue‘s Special Edition issue back in March (ultimately scoring the September cover months later). Now, Gigi Hadid (who was just on the cover for August 2016) stars on the magazine’s newly unveiled special edition for Fall 2016, aptly themed “It Girl Style.” Photographed by Gregory Harris, Gigi is all smiles wearing a bold red lip and a stunning sequin Altuzarra dress at the beach.

Yet the majority of our forum members weren’t buying it whatsoever. “Why do they need these special edition covers with models who have already been on the cover? First Kendall and now Gigi. I wish they could give this chance to some new faces or one of their favorites like Imaan [Hammam]. By the way, the shot is not bad but this cover feels very unnecessary to me,” stated apple the moment we took a first look at the cover.

“Exactly! I don’t understand these special editions either! You are after teenagers but will they shell out almost 13 dollars for such a thin issue? Why?!” asked a dumbfounded Miss Dalloway. (more…)

Zayn Malik Is Designing a Line for Versus Versace, Thanks to Gigi Hadid

Thank you @donatella_versace for welcoming me into the @versus_versace family !

A photo posted by Zayn Malik (@zayn) on

Because no great pop artist/half of a celebrity It couple/social media influencer is truly complete without at least a half-dozen fashion collaborations to his or her name, today the New York Times announced that there is a Zayn x Versus Versace capsule collection in the works. (On a related note, Zayn will star in the upcoming Versus Versace campaign.)

After former creative director Anthony Vaccarello’s departure for Yves Saint Laurent, Versace’s “younger, hipper” offshoot was a ship without a captain. Enter Zayn who, according to Donatella Versace, embodies the brand’s rock ‘n’ roll vibe. “Versus is everything that the Versace line is not. It is loud, it is rebellious — I don’t want shoppers buying both from Versus and Versace. The houses have different souls,” the grand dame of Italian fashion told the New York Times. “I wanted Zayn because he can help me talk to his followers. I want to listen to their language. I want to learn more about them, what they think and what they like. They are a new generation that without working with someone like Zayn, I will never reach.”

The two met through Malik’s bae and Versace’s frequent campaign star, Gigi Hadid. “He impressed me very much — he was so mature, so thoughtful, treated her like such a gentleman. They are very nice young people, a lovely couple, in fact. And then he told me how much he loved fashion. It was then I knew he was the right face for what I had in mind,” Donatella told the Times. Cue the awwws. (more…)

A Masked Gwyneth Paltrow Stars on Harper’s Bazaar’s November Issue (Forum Buzz)

Gwyneth Paltrow’s last cover for US Harper’s Bazaar was back in 2013 and considering the mag has a tendency to recycle the same cover subjects, a three-year absence is somewhat of an achievement. The actress/lifestyle guru makes her long-awaited return for the November 2016 cover, posing for Bazaar regular Alexi Lubomirski. On both the newsstand (below) and subscribers cover, Gwyneth channels Zorro wearing a face mask and matching lace bodysuit from La Perla for a bold and unconventional cover image.

Bazaar‘s efforts, however, failed to resonate with our forum members. “The cover looks stiff and awkward. I’m assuming the mask is Photoshopped on? Either way, it looks Photoshopped and badly so. Very fake. That first image from the editorial would’ve made for an amazing cover though,” MyNameIs pointed out.

Sharing the same sentiments was Nymphaea: “The mask looks very fake almost like they’ve put it there with Photoshop: copy and paste. Also her eyes are a bit smallish. Overall it gives me a Christmas vibe. (more…)

Peter Dundas Leaves Roberto Cavalli as Creative Director, tFS Forum Members React (Forum Buzz)

In the ever-revolving game of designer musical chairs and their contracts with fashion houses, Peter Dundas is leaving Roberto Cavalli. In news that shocked the fashion industry earlier today, Dundas’ final collection for the iconic Italian fashion house was Spring 2017, shown only a few weeks ago at Milan Fashion Week. The Norwegian-born designer joined the brand in March 2015 and his first collection for Spring 2016 received appalling reviews on our forums. His next collection for Fall 2016 was a vast improvement, but Dundas took two giant steps backward with his most recent Spring 2017 showing. Nonetheless, the announcement came as a shock.

Members of our forums were quick to voice their opinions once the news broke. “Yikes, what’s happening to this industry!! Purely from a superficial perspective, to me it looks like brands are as complicit as young designers. Where’s the loyalty where brands used to back their creative heads even through bad patches? Seems like this is a thing of the past now,” voiced Benn98 straight away.

“It was apparent that Peter wasn’t successful at Cavalli, he was much better at Pucci. The fashion industry is becoming more and more fickle, loyalty isn’t much around anymore. Money is driving this insanity, the big bosses wanting the gold pot at the end of the rainbow and it seems like it’s killing creativity unfortunately,” echoed Nymphaea. (more…)

Kathy Bates and Kristen Stewart Steal the Spotlight on ELLE’s Annual Women in Hollywood Issue (Forum Buzz)

Our forums tend to loathe it when magazines produce multiple covers for a single issue. Not so with American ELLE, however, which nailed the covers for its ‘Women In Comedy’ edition back in July and killed it for the annual ‘Women In TV’ issue back in January. Now it’s time for ELLE‘s annual ‘Women In Hollywood’ issue featuring Aja Noami King, Amy Adams, Anna Kendrick, Felicity Jones, Helen Mirren, Kathy Bates, Kristen Stewart and Lupita Nyong’o, each photographed for a solo cover by Dan Martensen.
