Banana Republic and Hot Dudes Reading Raise Money for Literacy

Hot Dudes Reading is one of our favorite Instagram accounts, and on its own, it provides a huge service for the community. That is, of course, putting attractive men who like to expand their minds all in one place. But now, Banana Republic is teaming with the social media account to take its charitable influence to the next level. 

#HotDudesReadingForACause is a social media-driven campaign with the goal of raising $50,000 for First Book, an organization that provides books for needy children. Banana Republic is posting its own pictures of reading hotties (clad in pieces from the spring collection, naturally), encouraging followers to donate to the organization. 

Banana Republic’s posts follow a formula similar to the original Hot Dudes Reading account. All of the retailer’s studious hunks are pictured taking public transportation in New York City, and the captions boast the same wit and cheeky flair of the OG account, which lent a hand with the copy.

Check out some of Banana Republic’s eye candy and donate to First Book.

Julianne Hough Resembles a ‘Stunned Scarecrow’ on Allure’s April Cover (Forum Buzz)

You’d better rush to the newsstand to grab the last remaining copies of Kendall Jenner‘s Allure cover, as the magazine recently unveiled its next installment. Julianne Hough stars on the mag’s April 2015 issue, shot before the lens of Allure regular Carter Smith. The American dancer, songwriter and occasional actress wears a subtle sequined chiffon bodysuit from Valentino, while sporting a smoky eye teamed with a nude lip.

Forum members had a lot to say about the new cover. “This is so scary, is it Halloween already?! Hair & makeup don’t go well together. The layout and those tags, awful. This magazine’s quality just keeps getting lower and lower,” discredited kokobombon, unsatisfied with the outcome.

“That eye makeup is all sorts of wrong. It’s too heavy for a nude look. She looks like she has a flu rather than looking glamorous. It’s too heavy and zombie like. They could’ve gone with a lighter color that would complement the eyes or used a darker lip color to balance out the eye. Ugh. And let’s not even start with the hair,” MON vented soon after.

Also not feeling it was orchidee: “Yikes…that is one scary cover and not in a good way.”

Forum member zoom shared the same sentiments and added, “Better suited for a Halloween October cover no doubt. Who knew the ‘stunned scarecrow’ look was a spring trend? #Fail.” Ouch.

“Vile! Bride of Frankenstein? What a random cover choice too, what does she have to promote? And all the try-hard posing. It’s a miss for me,” Benn98 informed us.

Marc Jacobs Is Now on Instagram

“I am so appalled by the whole social media thing. I don’t get it, it doesn’t appeal to me, neither does a computer, or working on a laptop,” said new Instagram member Marc Jacobs just last month in an interview with Suzy Menkes. Yesterday, the designer launched his own personal Instagram page @themarcjacobs, celebrating his turn to the dark side with a lightly filtered image of him smiling and glancing furtively to the side.

 

No filter, (some filler)!

So far, Mr. Jacobs has garnered about 36.7k followers on the social media site, a number that will most definitely rise in the coming days. Marc has clearly had a change of heart when it comes to social media, so, bring on the shirtless #wokeuplikethis selfies, Mr. Jacobs.

Angelina Jolie Opens Up About Removing Her Ovaries and Fallopian Tubes

Angelina Jolie made waves two years ago when she underwent a double mastectomy after testing positive for a mutation of the BRCA1 gene, which makes her more susceptible to developing breast cancer (an 87% chance) and ovarian cancer (a 50% chance). 

Jolie, who lost her mother, grandmother and aunt to cancer, wrote an op-ed for The New York Times in which she reveals that she recently had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed after a test revealed that she could be in the early stages of cancer. Though she chose to undergo the procedure, Jolie stresses that removing so much of her reproductive system isn’t necessarily a choice that other women in her position should make. “I did not do this solely because I carry the BRCA1 gene mutation, and I want other women to hear this. A positive BRCA test does not mean a leap to surgery,” she wrote. “I have spoken to many doctors, surgeons and naturopaths. There are other options. Some women take birth control pills or rely on alternative medicines combined with frequent checks. There is more than one way to deal with any health issue. The most important thing is to learn about the options and choose what is right for you personally.” The procedure puts Jolie into forced menopause, which she says she’s managing right now. 

“It is not easy to make these decisions. But it is possible to take control and tackle head-on any health issue. You can seek advice, learn about the options and make choices that are right for you. Knowledge is power.”

Model Lara Bingle and actor Sam Worthington have reportedly welcomed their first child into the world. 

According to Woman’s Day, several of “the couple’s close friends” said that Lara gave birth to a baby boy at LA’s Cedars-Sinai hospital overnight. We’re still waiting on a name for the little cherub, and confirmation from the happy couple themselves.

We could be waiting a long time, considering the Aussie power couple has remained tight-lipped about the pregnancy and their suspected nuptials. Until then, we’ll continue to check her Instagram crazy-stalker style.
