Ever since that fateful New York Times article hit the presses, we vowed never to skimp on a manicure, always thoroughly research our salons and compensate our nail technicians generously for their services. Vanessa Hudgens takes it one step further. In honor of her favorite festival, the lauded Coachella Queen splurged on a Swarovski-studded, pot leaf-accented nail design — to the tune of $190. (more…)
She’s already starring on two covers of Vogue Brazil and now Alessandra Ambrosio takes to the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Spain. The magazine is slowly starting to recapture our attention, having impressed us last month with Bella Hadid. For the May cover, Alessandra does what she does best, posing on a bed wearing a slinky silk dress from Burberry, shot by forum favorite Txema Yeste.
Members of our forums were pretty much hooked from the onset. “Love it! Simple and beautiful,” approved Oxymore the second the cover came to light, about to set the tone for comments to come.
We’re usually delighted to see Charlize Theron on the cover of any magazine. We fell head over heels for her recent appearance on WSJ. but V Magazine’s Summer 2016 issue featuring the actress has failed to generate any excitement in our forums. After celebrating its 100th issue this spring, the magazine has let standards slip as it serves up a tired-looking Charlize wearing Christian Dior (obviously) in a close-up lensed by Collier Schorr.
Forum members weren’t buying it, plain and simple. “I think she’s a great person but it’s always boring to see her fronting covers. She’s dull,” slammed an uninterested Creative the moment the cover dropped.

Researchers at Chapman University just confirmed what we already knew: overexposure to unhealthily thin models digs deep into our psyches. So much so that altering swimsuit ads to highlight their flawed undertones does nothing to mitigate their negative effect on women’s body image satisfaction. Now, how many more times does this need to be said before industry standards substantially change?
The team, headed by David Frederick, Ph.D., assistant professor of psychology at Chapman, conducted two studies focusing on whether or not body image activists are wasting their energy adding disclaimers or “subvertisements” — witty changes meant to counter the photos’ injurious messages — to ads. (Spoiler alert: Extremely well-intentioned, big ol’ waste of time.) (more…)
The girls of Victoria’s Secret are without a doubt having a moment on the Spanish newsstands right now. Alessandra Ambrosio currently stars on Harper’s Bazaar Spain’s latest offering and now Vogue Spain has selected a handful of the Angels to pose on the front of its recently revealed May 2016 issue. Continuing its winning streak, the magazine welcomes beauties Martha Hunt, Sara Sampaio, Jasmine Tookes, Stella Maxwell, Taylor Hill, Romee Strijd and Elsa Hosk onto the cover, huddling together at the beach as photographer David Bellemere captures the serene moment.
The cover just begged for debate on our forums and that’s just what it got. “So well done! When I read the title, and clicked on the thread I expected this to be a tacky mess, but it’s ethereal, and beautiful. Group covers are so hard to do, but they really hit it out of the park here. This is a great year for Vogue Spain, so many good covers and issues,” Miss Dalloway applauded, setting us off on a high note.
Aussie rap superstar Iggy Azalea has quashed rumours that she and boyfriend Nick Young of the Los Angeles Lakers have broken up.
After a video of Young and teammate D’Angelo Russell discussing relationship misconduct emerged, rumours that the Mullumbimby-born star had ended things with Young inevitably surfaced.
Azalea took to Twitter yesterday to dispel the rumours, writing: “I havent broken up with nick. We are together and I would love to be given a little (a lot) of privacy on the matter.”
