Forbes has released its list of the world’s most powerful women for 2015. Of course, you’ll find names like Hillary Clinton (#2) and Oprah Winfrey (#12), but one of this year’s newbies on the list is Taylor Swift, who has arguably been having the best year ever since releasing her 1989 album in October. Swift comes in at #64, with Forbes giving her props for being one of three artists to see their albums reach platinum status in 2014. It also doesn’t hurt that Swift has been quite savvy about her money and intellectual property, having removed her music from Spotify’s free streaming service. 

Beyoncé, who inspires and influences us each and every day with her glorious existence, comes in at #21. No list of influential women would be complete without a few notable members of the fashion set. Anna Wintour (#28), Tory Burch (#73), Diane von Furstenberg (#75), Miuccia Prada (#79) and Sara Blakley (#91) round out this list of influencers. Ellen Degeneres (#50) also gets a mention thanks in part to the ED lifestyle brand she’s expected to launch soon. 

Talk about ladies doing it all!

Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne Together Again for Mango’s Fall Campaign

Cara Delevingne might be trying to focus on her acting career these days, but it seems as if she isn’t slowing down on the modeling front. Delevingne has been tapped to star in Mango’s latest ads, alongside another model you may have heard of, Kate Moss, for the retailer’s fall campaign called #somethingincommon.

And indeed, the two have plenty in common: they’re both supermodels from the UK, Delevingne has often been called the next Kate Moss and they’ve already posed cheek-to-cheek for Burberry. For this latest set of ads, Mango tapped Inez and Vinoodh to capture the British beauties who, in mere T-shirts, manage to look as elegant and ethereal as they would in full-on ball gowns. Some girls truly have all the luck. 

Moss has worked with Mango before, but this is Delevingne’s first time with the brand and she is predictably stoked. “Having Kate as my partner in crime is ideal! We are a lethal combination,” she said. “I admire her personally and professionally, she represents a true fashion icon. It is a privilege to learn and to share this experience with her. The shoot has been epic, it’s always fun when Miss Moss is around.”

We can’t wait to see what the rest of this campaign looks like.

Marc Jacobs Taps Cher as the Face of His Fall 2015 Ad Campaign (Forum Buzz)

The Fall 2015 advertising campaigns are trickling in earlier than expected. Roberto Cavalli is already out with Ciara and now Marc Jacobs has unveiled his mainline campaign featuring Cher. Yes, the Cher stars solo in Jacobs’ brand new fashion spots which have set our forums ablaze, though we’re not completely surprised. The designer took the 69-year-old icon as his date to this year’s Met Gala, which should have sent alarm bells ringing. Nonetheless, the first image captured by David Sims is here and ready to be dissected by our forum members.

The campaign only just dropped this morning but everything’s looking positive so far. “I love the fact that Marc uses women of different ages for his campaigns. Cher looks stunning, the collection was incredible and works great on her! Looking forward to seeing more!” Nepenthes hailed.

Also showing some love was LastNight: “A big YES to this. Love Cher and love this photo, excellent choice.”

GIVENCHYlover was quick to rave about the image too, using the word “stunning” to describe the shot.

“Beautiful!” agreed FashionPhoto1134.

“I love it! Morticia Addams in Marc Jacobs!” Khyrk shared soon after.

Love that Jacobs tapped Cher as his campaign girl this season? Join the conversation here.

This Plus-Size Agent Doesn’t See a Future in Modeling for Tess Holliday

We’re in the midst of a plus-size revolution in the world of fashion and modeling, with bloggers setting the pace and demanding labels create fashionable clothes for larger gals. Lane Bryant’s #ImNoAngel campaign for its Cacique lingerie line caused quite a buzz and the latest issue of People magazine features size 22 model Tess Holliday. Tess is the first model of her size and height  (5’5″) to get a modeling contract. Despite her early success, however, there are some folks who wonder if her days in the industry are numbered. 

Business Insider interviewed an anonymous plus-size agent to get her take on the state of plus modeling today. While it seems we’re beginning to make strides in body diversity, this agent is not confident the trend will last. She has a particularly bleak forecast for Ms. Holliday, whom she believes is the flavor of the moment. “I doubt Tess Holliday will get much more work than the Yours campaign she has just shot,” she said. “Her agent has been very savvy from day one about using social media to drum up interest in her girls, and to win clients. But again, I think the much bigger sizes don’t have staying power. It is a freak show. The buzz will die down again.”

Ouch. She attributes Holliday’s success to her strong social media following, which we think would make her something of a plus-size Instagirl – sounds pretty good, right? After all, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and their ilk were able to help boost their popularity through social media, so why would Holliday be any different? According to this agent, it’s because of Holliday’s size. “Holliday is not a healthy size and I think it does encourage those who battle with weight to just say ‘f*** it’ and not take care of themselves. It’s not a popular attitude, but it’s my humble opinion.” Good thing her opinion is anonymous. “I’ve seen how the seasoned and popular girls work out and take care of themselves and it’s inspiring stuff. They will never be a [UK] size 10, but they are a glorious and healthy and toned [UK] size 16. Prime examples are Laura Wells and Robyn Lawley. Granted there are a lot of bloggers out there like Holliday who are [UK] size 20+ and write about fashion and acceptance, and good luck to them, but I’m doubtful if they will ever stick in the mainstream long term.”

Fashion is unpredictable, but we’re hoping this agent is wrong about Holliday, who is gorgeous and says she’s been pretty busy since signing with MiLK. Most likely too busy to care about other people’s opinions on her career trajectory. If this agent’s words prove anything, it’s that Ms. Holliday still has boundaries to break and she will do that once she establishes some sort of longevity.

The Celebrity Best Friend Big Build is in full swing. Join us on the Miniland lawn to help us re-create a giant LEGO mosaic of Taylor Swift.
