Sasha Pivovarova’s i-D Cover Is ‘the Best One in a Really Long Time’ (Forum Buzz)

What is love? Well, i-D magazine asks that exact question as Sasha Pivovarova makes the cover of the magazine’s Fall 2014 issue, and our forums have been set ablaze. The Russian model and mother of one wears Louis Vuitton as Glen Luchford captured the fresh-faced beauty for the black and white cover image. As usual, the cover shot sticks to i-D‘s signature style with Sasha’s blond tresses cascading down one side of her face to conceal an eye.

Sasha seems to be one of those models who just keeps hitting it out of the park for our forum members. “I´m speechless… she looks amazing! The styling and photography look so right for her,” exclaimed kokobombon.

“Sasha can’t do wrong!” agreed Lifeispeachy.

Nepenthes was on board with the cover and wrote, “Stunning, love how gentle the hair looks over her eye!”

Also sharing an enthusiastic attitude was KateTheGreatest: “Love is the right word for this cover, the best one in a really long time.”

“I’ve missed Sasha on covers! There’s just nothing to complain about, everything looks perfect!” said Valentine27, clearly yet another satisfied Sasha fan.

Although not everyone was ecstatic. “Great seeing Sasha and she does look good, but I was hoping for a little more than this,” commented justaguy, who was left underwhelmed.

Benn98 was equally unfulfilled and posted, “Well, it’s certainly not what I expected, but it’s passable.”

Underwhelming or overwhelming? You decide! See inside the thread and join the discussion here.

Watch Anna Wintour Dash Out of the Christian Dior Show

Raf Simons showed his latest for Dior today to a smattering of fashion industry and celebrity elites. Marion Cotillard, Natalia Vodianova, Dakota Fanning, Coco Rocha, Olivia Palermo and several others were in attendance, taking in the scene from inside the mirrored space the label built for the show.

Giovanna Battaglia filmed the collection’s final walk for her Instagram, which was momentarily obstructed by a certain bob-wearing editrix who seemed as if she couldn’t get out of the show quickly enough. Towards the end of Battaglia’s video, we see Anna Wintour run into the frame, dashing out of the space in a hurry.

Was the show that bad? Our forum members were definitely not feeling the threads this time around, but Anna more likely had another appointment to get to (she’s a busy gal). It’s nice to know the editrix likes to get to her engagements on time, which is more that we can say for a certain celebrity couple making the rounds at PFW.

Victoria Beckham Is Now a UN Ambassador

It seems like these days, being named a U.N. ambassador is the look for the celeb set. Emma Watson had pretty much everyone swooning over her “game-changing” speech about feminism during the U.N.’s #HeForShe event last weekend. Victoria Beckham is the latest celebrity to snag the esteemed title as the newest UNAIDS International Goodwill Ambassador.

“I’m a passionate supporter of women. I want to support women, I want to empower women and I believe that everybody has the right to a healthy life,” she said at a press conference announcing her new role. Victoria has been quite an active advocate for HIV/AIDS afflicted mothers. She recently auctioned off items from her personal wardrobe in partnership with The Outnet. Proceeds from that benefited the mothers2mothers charity, which helps HIV-infected mothers get proper medical treatment to keep them from passing on the virus to their babies. 

This latest partnership with the U.N. is clearly a way for the designer to continue her work. “I’m a mother. I’m a woman. I want to do whatever it is that I can do to lend my voice, raise awareness.” She credits a recent trip to South Africa as her inspiration for getting involved with the organization.

“I went to Cape Town and I was so touched by the women that I met, I felt inspired and I came home and I knew I had to do something…every woman out there has the right to health and every woman has the right to give her children a healthy future.”

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Made Everyone Wait for 40 Minutes at the Lanvin Show

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are having the best worst Paris Fashion Week ever. Things started on a high for them, attending the Balenciaga show on Wednesday with their 15-month-old daughter, North West, who basically stole the show from her famous parents with her innate adorableness. But things started to go downhill for the couple yesterday when they left the tyke at home. 

Before yesterday’s Balmain show, Kim was attacked by  celebrity prankster Vitalii Sediuk, who grabbed at the reality star’s legs nearly bringing her to the ground. Now, reports are surfacing that the drama didn’t end there for Kimye.

After hitting up Balmain, the pair were off to Lanvin, which, in true Kimye fashion, they simply couldn’t make on time because of their supremely busy schedules. In fact, Kim and Kanye were 40 minutes late to the show, leaving editors, buyers and journalists waiting for them to arrive. British Vogue sent out something of a shady tweet once the guests of honor finally showed up: 

But it was the runway photographers who really let the couple know how they felt about the big hold-up. Page Six reports that as soon as Kimye stepped into the venue, the photographers started booing them. Kanye apparently went up to the photo pit and asked them to sop booing him and his wife, who had clearly been through enough that day.

Anyone who has been to a fashion show knows that the photo pit can get a little boisterous when someone commits a fashion show faux pas. Yelling and screaming is not atypical when photogs get frustrated. No matter how important you think you are, there will always be a shutterbug to bring you back to reality.

Marie Claire Apologises for Publishing Culturally Offensive Pic of Gemma Ward

The fashion world has made another boo-boo. Marie Claire Australia has pissed off New Zealander academic Ngarino Ellis, because it published a photo of Gemma Ward with a Maori moko painted on her chin for its October issue.

The spread was intended to pay tribute to French designer Jean Paul Gaultier, but has caused offence to the senior art history lecturer at the University of Auckland.

“Moko is complex and serious and not to be taken lightly,” Dr Ellis told the NZ Herald. “It is disturbing that Marie Claire is so removed from current discussions globally about the importance of the fashion world to be ethical and culturally inclusive.”

In a statement issued to Daily Mail Australia, the glossy has apologised “unreservedly” for offending the Maori people’s cultural values. “The image was not created or commissioned by Marie Claire, but one chosen as part of a retrospective of the work of the fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier,” it read. “We would not knowingly support the appropriation of any aspect of another culture without the participation or support of the members of that culture.” (more…)

Kim Kardashian Got Attacked Before Balmain Today

Fame: On the outside it’s all glitz, glamour and free clothes, but being a celebrity is not without its risks. Just ask Kim Kardashian, who was attacked today right before entering the Balmain show. The reality star was just casually minding her business, trying to exit her chauffeured car with husband Kanye West and mom Kris Jenner. Naturally, there was a mob around the vehicle, but things got out of hand when a crazed assailant came toward Kim, attempting to pull her down to the ground by her legs.

Kris was getting out of the car on the same side as Kim. When she saw her daughter being attacked, she immediately went ferocious mama bear all over the guy’s ass, screaming in a fit of passion, “STOP IT.” Plus, it looks like she even got in a few kicks after security wrestled him to the ground. 

Kim got away from the scene unscathed, but we think it’s safe to say that the real winner in this situation is Kris, who looked like she was about to take her earrings off and get to snuffin’. Seriously — she seemed to be ready to throw down in her expensive designer duds, and we don’t blame her. Call it maternal instinct.

The attacker is believed to be Vitalii Sediuk, the fellow who routinely pranks celebrities on the red carpet. He’s the guy who tried to kiss Will Smith on the red carpet, an act that got him smacked in the face by the actor. Vitalii’s pranked tons of celebs, but announced that he was retiring from his sophomoric antics earlier this year. Looks as if he simply couldn’t leave the game alone. 

Watch the whole scene unfold below.
