Chances are by now you’ve had at least one tiger stripe-filled glimpse at the forthcoming Kenzo x H&M collection. When designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon produce a collaborative line, they often use their creations to celebrate a pivotal fashion moment, past or present. In this case, that moment is the diversity upswing.

Today, the brands released the full Olivier Hadlee Pearch-lensed Kenzo x H&M lookbook and the theme of diversity is evident not only in the eclectic cast of characters modeling the collection, but in the clothes themselves.

Lim and Leon tapped a throng of cool creatives — don’t worry, we won’t call them “real people” — to model their statement-making menswear and womenswear looks. Writer and activist Amy Sall, shutterbug Youngjun Koo, artist and DJ Juliana Huxtable (yet another transgender woman killing it in the entertainment industry), musician and performance artist Oko Ebombo, LOVE magazine editor Harriet Verney, makeup artist Isamaya Ffrench, musician Anna of the North, model and rapper Le1f and professional models Mae Lapres, Hao Liu, Selena Forrest, Tom Gaskin, Julia Banas and Pierre Painchaud all stepped before Pearch’s camera.

The clothes beyond complement this talented cast. The eternally fashion-forward creative directors have given us a range that’s full of Spring 2017’s greatest hits — print collisions, voluminous sleeves, ruffles galore, unconventional bags, paperbag-waist pants — alongside various cross-cultural pieces.

If you’re a card-carrying Crocs, Teva or Ugg devotee — or if you keep your love hidden away for fear of being excommunicated from the Church of Fashion — this is your year. In March, Opening Ceremony released its third collaboration with Teva, which saw the erstwhile dad shoe in satin and platform iterations. Then, for Spring 2017, Christopher Kane sent Crocs down his runway. Charm-accessorized Crocs, to be exact. Now, the third member of the (seemingly) universally disliked shoe trifecta is poised to make its triumphant return, thanks to one Ms. Alexa Chung.

Chung, whose eponymous fashion label will (finally) launch this March, was recently named art director for UGG — the company’s first-ever creative brand partnership. Chung oversaw the Australian footwear retailer’s latest campaign, which will spotlight the classic 2.0 boot (some of) the fashion set hates to love. (more…)

Lara Stone May Have Just Given Vogue Turkey Its Best Cover in a Very Long Time (Forum Buzz)

Lara Stone’s last Vogue cover wasn’t exactly…great. Our forums were far from thrilled and had expected a whole lot more from the model. However, she’s back on the cover of Vogue Turkey for October (her second). Photographed by Liz Collins against a brick wall, Lara works a black lacquered jacket by Louis Vuitton, her hair in a messy fishtail pony and sporting a killer smoky eye.

Members of our forums shared mixed feelings toward the cover. “The first Vogue Turkey issue after a very very very long time that I feel the urge to buy. This is so good. The rawness of the photo is so perfect. I love the gold logo, and how it intertwines with her,” admired a more than delighted MON.

“Much better than her current Vogue Netherlands cover. I love the styling and brick wall,” expressed kokobombon, sharing the same positive attitude. (more…)

Kim Kardashian’s Robbery Could Mean the End of ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’

When those five men broke into the Hôtel de Pourtalès, gagged and bound Kim Kardashian and made off with over 10 million dollars worth of jewelry, they didn’t just deprive Kim’s engagement ring of its bigger and better twin, they robbed the world of a cultural phenomenon. According to Us Weekly, Keeping Up With the Kardashians is “on hold indefinitely” while Kim recovers from the traumatic event and reevaluates how much of her personal life she makes public.

In a statement released this Thursday, a spokesperson for E! (the network that’s hosted the reality show for nearly a decade) wrote “Kim’s well-being is our core focus right now. No decision has been made as to when production will resume.” As one would hope, the film crew did not show up at Kim’s apartment after the robbery, nor have they filmed reaction interviews with any of the Kardashians/Jenners/Wests. At the moment, Kim’s reportedly “canceled everything for the next several weeks and will not be working.” (more…)

Constance Jablonski Goes Topless for Lui Magazine’s Sultry October Cover (Forum Buzz)

Our forums used to be head over heels for everything Lui magazine published, and the mag consistently delivered the goods throughout all of 2015. But the racy French publication has had a rough 2016 so far, giving us fairly flat and uninteresting covers. Yet for October, Lui is back in our good graces, serving up a topless Constance Jablonski on the cover, who poses all hot and sweaty alongside a flashy sports car for photographer David Bellemere.

You’ll either love it or loathe it, and the majority of our forum members loved it. “Her body!! Holy sweet hell. Definitely the hottest photo of Constance I’ve seen — in the most cliched realization of ‘hotness’, of course, but you can’t deny she looks sensational here,” happycanadian admired at once.

“Constance makes what could have been really cheap and sleazy look sexy and kind of classy. She looks stunning!” gazebo chimed in. (more…)

Emily Blunts Stars on InStyle’s Tacky, Dated November Cover (Forum Buzz)

Ever since InStyle‘s redesign in February, our forum members have declared their love for the magazine on a regular basis. Just about every cover has been an instant hit, but we didn’t know what to expect from new Editor-in-Chief Laura Brown (formerly of Harper’s Bazaar). The magazine’s November issue reveals that change is in the air — and not necessarily for the better. The sleek and polished design we’ve enjoyed for the past year appears to be replaced with dated fonts from the 00s and an overly airbrushed cover star (actress Emily Blunt).

Members of our forums saw the cover and wept. “Well I’m guessing the is the first cover with input from the Bazaar girl that took over from Ariel [Foxman] because it screams of US Bazaar tackiness,” exclaimed a far from overjoyed A.D.C, the second the cover dropped earlier today.

“Exactly. I guess it’s goodbye to beautiful, exciting, offbeat covers and hello to predictable and corny covers,” replied a less than impressed Marc10. (more…)
