New Marc Jacobs Ad Campaign Celebrates the Strength of the LGBTQ Community in the Wake of the Orlando Shooting

Marc Jacobs is the king of the politically charged fashion statement. Over the past year, he’s come out in strident support of Planned Parenthood, dedicated his Spring ad campaign to the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage and featured plus-size rock star Beth Ditto on his Spring 2016 runway. The designer’s Spring 2016 promo was also the season’s most diverse. Jacobs accompanied the spread with eloquent anecdotes discussing exactly why he’d chosen each of his subjects, making their personalities come alive on the page.

Now, in the midst of Pride Month and the wake of the horrific Orlando shooting, Marc Jacobs has once again shone the spotlight on those who challenge the status quo, both in their actions and simply by existing. Part of the trauma of the shooting, aside from it being the most fatal in American history, was that it occurred in the age of social media. We have unprecedented insight into all 49 victims’ lives and even their last moments thanks to sources like Instagram and Snapchat. Regardless of our sexual identification, we can identify. (more…)

Kim Kardashian Strips Down for GQ’s New Cover

She’s certainly no stranger to posing naked and Kim Kardashian is back at it again for GQ‘s latest. Our forums had been rife with speculation about Kim’s top secret shoot in Los Angeles with photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. We had first assumed the shoot was for Vogue Paris after receiving a tidbit inside the Cover Rumor Thread, but we’ve been completely blindsided by the shoot turning up on the front of GQ ‘s 10th annual Love, Sex & Madness issue. In true Kim fashion, Mrs. West stripped down for the occasion wearing nothing but a black leather trench clutched against her bare skin.

We’re certainly going to be seeing a whole lot more of Kim on the newsstands in the next couple months. She just flew back from Paris having shot with Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld for a Harper’s Bazaar global fashion shoot entitled Bazaar Icons. Who knows, Kim may still be getting the September cover of French Vogue. Stay tuned!

Gigi Hadid Goes Solo as the Face of Stuart Weitzman for Fall 2016 (Forum Buzz)

After several seasons with Gisele Bündchen in the mix, Stuart Weitzman decided to switch things up last season by enlisting beauties Gigi Hadid, Joan Smalls and Lily Aldridge for Spring 2016. Now, as the Fall 2016 campaigns continue to surface, Gigi appears solo as the face of the high-end footwear label. Mario Testino also makes a return as Wetizman’s photographer of choice (his 10th consecutive campaign for the brand). For Weitzman’s signature black and white adverts, Gigi strikes dynamic poses, which were inspired by her own workout routine.

“No Joan this season? Great shot though, and happy for Gigi!” praised forum member happycanadian the moment the campaign dropped.

“Love, love, love this shot. So much energy and the styling looks good. She’s much better when the focus isn’t on her sex-doll face,” commended Benn98. (more…)

He’s Back! Hot Felon Jeremy Meeks Shares His First Official Modeling Photo

 

Our #warriors fan @jmeeksofficial ready for tipoff

A photo posted by WHITE CROSS MANAGEMENT (@whitecrossmanagement) on

It’s been a great month for the female gaze. Genetically perfect human being Ryan Gosling got the ball rolling by proclaiming “women are better than men.” Now, hot felon Jeremy Meeks has resurfaced after a 13-week Instagram hiatus to share his first modeling pictures with the ready and waiting world.

Ever since Meek’s handsome mugshot went viral in 2014, we joined the state of California in anxiously tracking his every move. The smooth criminal (forgive us) was originally sentenced to two years of jail time for the illegal possession of a firearm, which led to his dreamy photo being posted on Stockton Police Department’s Facebook page, garnering hundreds of thousands of likes and ultimately allowing for his discovery by talent agency White Cross Management. (Yet another reason we stand firmly behind gun control.)

“I’m in a place where I will be able to provide for my family and really change my life. I never thought that everyone in the world would recognize me for my looks, so I feel extremely blessed and very thankful,” the 32-year-old has said of his looming modeling career. It’s nice to see an instance in which the prison system has (albeit unwittingly) fulfilled its intended role as a rehabilitative — not strictly punitive — center. (more…)

Watch: Meet the Viral Bath Bombs That Tranform Your Tub Into a Horror Show

At the end of a long, hard day, we indulge in a bath for the sensory experience. In terms of cleaning ourselves, a shower is far more functional. The same could be said of the bath bombs we drop in our tubs. The salts and oils that radiate from these effervescent bulbs would be more effective sans irritating dyes and perfumes, but half the joy is watching the progress of that colorful fizz.

Much like our penchant for scary movies (hear us out). “For [some] being scared in a safe place is a source of enjoyment and makes them feel good physically and can even serve as a confidence boost by reminding us that we can make it through a scary situation, we are strong,” says Margee Kerr, a sociologist who specializes in fear.

Now, you can combine all three sensory experiences, thanks to Belfast-based retailer Bella Muerte Clothing. In addition to selling apparel, Bella Muerte developed its own line of cruelty-free, vegan, gothic bath bombs called hex bombs to appeal to “dark sweet hearts.” (more…)
