Fierce covers, but we’re reminded of something from last month. “Reminds me of ‘boobs’ in LOVE‘s Spring 2015 issue, but so much better,” called out Koibito, of course referring to the Steven Klein editorial from the Kim Kardashian issue of LOVE.

“Basically ‘boobs’ but without the boobs. Stunning cast!” announced russianelf in agreement.

Nepenthes was full of praise for the content and raved, “Everyone looks so stunning! Love this!”

As was Benn98: “This is so unexpected, all the girls look stunning. Wow at Crystal Renn, she’s killing it.”

“OMFG these are so bloody amazing I can’t even handle!” cried Nomar in excitement.

“Didn’t know L’Officiel Singapore was such a publication that could get these in-demand models!” added a pleasantly surprised littlekiki.

MON was quick to sing the magazine’s praises. “Congrats to L’Officiel Singapore for their 8th year and for being able to cast such huge names. NOW, these are nice portraits but it’s boring. Same old same old Steven Klein,” he shared.

Check out all eight covers inside the thread and share your favorite here.

Dolce & Gabbana’s Couture Menswear Comes to the US

Dolce & Gabbana has brought haute couture to the fellas with its Alta Sartoria line, allowing men to order fancy-schmancy bespoke suits from the brand’s Milan store. Now, stylish guys living stateside with deep pockets and a penchant for one-of-a-kind pieces can enjoy the same luxury at the Fifth Avenue store in New York City. The service will be available starting in the fall. 

“Globalization has destroyed things like elegance and tradition,” says Stefano Gabbana. “Fashion can make men afraid—but you won’t lose any power because of a baby-blue jacket lining.” Sounds like the duo is trying to bring some of that mood back to fashion — one bespoke brocade jacket at a time.

Kanye West Thinks $5,000 Sweaters Are Ridiculous

It seems there isn’t a day that goes by without Kanye West saying or doing something to garner attention. Today in Yeezy news, the rapper becomes a class equality crusader. 

West hit up Oxford University to address students during a lecture. Besides proclamations that racism is dead and that North West’s toys can only be of the “inspirational” sort (whatever that means to an 18 month old), West did have some great ideas about the fashion world and how it needs to be more egalitarian. The rapper talked about how much he despises class distinctions and how they influence the world of consumerism. In Kanye’s world, it shouldn’t matter if you have $4 dollars or $400,000 dollars – you should have access to quality. “Clothing should be like food. There should never be a $5,000 sweater. You know what should cost $5,000? A car should be $5,000. And you know who should work on the car? The people that work on the $500,000 cars,” he said. “All the best talent in the world needs to work for the people. And I am so f*****g serious about this concept that I will stand in front of anyone and fight for it. Because I was 14 and middle class. I know what it felt like to not get what I have.”

And it seems like Yeezy, who Madonna calls a “beautiful mess,” is following through on his crusade to break class barriers. Before hitting Oxford to make his speech, West paid a visit to the Carnaby Street Adidas Store in London to help hand out free pairs of his Yeezy Boost sneaker. At least he’s working on that ego like he said.

Forum members raced to the thread to see ELLE‘s latest installment and couldn’t wait to voice their praise. “I love Michelle and am thrilled to see her on a cover again!” Handbag Queen raved, getting us off on a high note.

“I love this! I like how they’ve managed to portray her looking cool and fresh instead of that typically pretty girl aesthetic,” added Chanelcouture09.

Also full of enthusiasm was kokobombon: “I think that the color palette makes it very eye-catching. I like the styling and LOVE Michelle.”

Forum member gazebo agreed, “I love everything about it. She looks super fresh and cool.” ELLE has certainly won us over with this one.

MyNameIs shared the same sentiments and echoed, “Love it. Agree with most, this looks cool and fresh. I feel like it’s been a while since we’ve seen her on a cover.”

“Michelle is not one of those girls who always book covers, so I welcome this. I’m really bored with this LV look, but at least it suits her,” Benn98 posted.

Was Cate Blanchett’s ‘Cinderella’ Premiere Look Totally Boring?

She might be playing the evil stepmother in Disney’s upcoming Cinderella remake, but there was nothing sinister or courageous about Cate Blanchett’s outfit for the film’s Hollywood premiere on Sunday, March 1.

The Australian actress kept it really minimal and classic in a custom Céline outfit, with a crew-neck white long-sleeve top tucked into a deep-navy maxi skirt. This simple ensemble would’ve been a total bore without the two-tone pendant necklace, just like her necklace-centric 2015 Oscars look, considering her straight side-parted hair and clean makeup didn’t even try and make a statement.

Despite the simplicity of it all, Cate did charm us with the chic-sophistication which she seems to have down pat. It oozed elegance and all-round classic appeal, just like Cate herself, but we did get kind of sleepy just looking at this.
