Now You Can Spend the Night at Downton Abbey

Ever wanted to experience just a taste of what life at Downton Abbey would be like, but don’t have a time machine to go back to the 20s? Well, now you have your chance. The owners of the now-famous Highclere Castle (which we all know as Downton), will let you stay overnight on the famed property. According to the Telegraph, the owners have opened a guest house, dubbed the London Lodge, which isn’t quite in the castle — it’s in two restored buildings on the estate, big enough for two people each. 

The spot is basically perfect for a Downton-themed lovers’ getaway in cute cottages with a sophisticated, rustic feel. But if you are interested, you may want to plan for your trip sooner rather than later. The spot is already booked with guests through the spring, but there will be openings for summer and fall visits since the lodge is already so popular. 

So no, there will be no late night visits from Lady Mary, and Mr. Carson may not come check on you to see when you’re ready for your morning coffee in bed, but at the very least, you can dress up in flapper dresses and take some seriously cool Instagram pictures to make all your friends jealous that you’re having the best weekend ever.

Dov Charney Talks American Apparel Dismissal

Now that Dov Charney is officially out at American Apparel, folks are starting to wonder what’s next for the troubled CEO. The former boss has come forward with a statement on his dismissal and in it, he seems to indicate no intention of completely cutting off his relationship with the brand. “I’m proud of what I created at American Apparel and am confident that, as its largest shareholder, I will have a strong relationship with the company in the years ahead,” he said. “Naturally, I am disappointed with the circumstances and my over 25 years of deep passion and commitment for American Apparel will always be the core DNA of the company.”

WWD speculates that his departure will probably lead to a few court battles, though as of yet, there is no indication that Charney will take legal action against his former company. 

Whatever he plans to do in light of the news, one thing is for sure: Charney will likely never again hold the kind of power he used to at American Apparel.

Watch: Lindsay Lohan Shakes It for LOVE’s Advent Calendar

We think day 17 of LOVE‘s advent calendar has to be the most glorious. Previous days have provided us with dance numbers from the likes of Kendall and Kris Jenner, Hailey Baldwin and Suki Waterhouse, but we think today’s installation has got to be our favorite. Lindsay Lohan was tapped to do a little jig for director Liz Collins.

We watch Lindsay shaking her stuff in nary but a bra, a cozy-looking cardigan and tube socks, before giving us a little military-inspired tease in a button-festooned jacket (with nothing underneath), black trousers and pumps. It’s a glimpse at the old school Lindsay we miss so much, and we are so grateful to Katie Grand for bringing one of our tabloid faves to our holiday festivities.

Merry Christmas, y’all!

Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott Return to Shoot La Perla’s Spring 2015 Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Luxury Italian lingerie brand La Perla released its new Spring 2015 ad campaign this week and repeated the same concept from Fall 2014. If it ain’t broke, why fix it, right? La Perla kept Turkish photographic duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott to shoot the campaign, but for this season, switched up the casting. Goodbye to Mariacarla Boscono, Daria Strokous and Liu Wen and ciao to Sigrid Agren, Izabel Goulart and Ming Xi.

Are our forum members impressed with La Perla’s new campaign? “Gorgeous! I love how La Perla [has] been using models who wouldn’t normally be associated with lingerie. The results have been amazing,” raved orchidee.

“She looks beautiful!! All these La Perla campaigns are very similar but I would say this is my favorite one. It’s less retouched than the previous ones and has more natural lighting,” complimented Spicarru.

Nymphaea was also enthused about the campaign and wrote, “It’s so sophisticated, love!”

But not everyone’s so thrilled. “Same concept is boring!!!” complained testinofan.

“The cast is awful. From three beauties last season to three mediocre models this season,” added anlabe32, who clearly wasn’t a fan of the casting.

Check out the rest of the campaign inside the thread and tell us what you think here.

Watch: Jourdan Dunn and Naomi Campbell in Action for Burberry Spring 2015

First Cara and Kate, now Jourdan and Naomi. Burberry has tapped another powerhouse pairing of British top models for its spring campaign and the results are pretty fabulous. We were all stoked to see Jourdan and Naomi posing together in print for the British heritage brand’s latest, and now we get to see some of that magic in action. 

Burberry’s got a video to go with the campaign and in it we watch Jourdan and Naomi cozying up to each other, striking fierce poses and casting smoldering glances to the camera. As for the Georges (Barnett and Le Page, who also star in the campaign), they are shot looking quite strapping, smiling away in tailored Burberry suits and dress shoes — no socks.

See the Christopher Bailey directed, Mario Testino shot campaign in motion above.

Should Karl Lagerfeld Be Shooting Magazine Covers? (Forum Buzz)

We automatically think of Karl Lagerfeld as the creative director of Chanel, but magazine fans know that the German designer often photographs covers for Numéro, Vogue Brazil and Harper’s Bazaar, amongst others. The 81 year old recently shot Lindsey Wixson for ELLE Japan’s December 2014 cover and now the same shoot turns up on ELLE Russia’s January 2015 cover. Lindsey looks ready for the wintry weather of Russia as she sports a vibrant pink parka coat by Fendi, while clutching a Lagerfeld keyring created by the designer himself.

Forum members voiced their opinions within minutes of the cover surfacing. “Terrible…Russian Vogue and ELLE are a perfect match in January. This one is slightly better I must admit,” commented Srdjan.

“Dear oh dear… what is happening to Russian fashion magazines… after an absolutely horrific Vogue cover now this!” wrote a heavily underwhelmed KissMiss.

“Karl Lagerfeld shouldn’t be allowed to shoot covers and editorials,” coutugh simply informed us.

Also not feeling it was GlamorousBoy, who used the word “terrible” to describe Russian ELLE‘s offering this month.

Thanks to meidude, we’re treated to some digital previews of the fashion stories. But Benn98 wasn’t impressed and posted, “So many reprints? This does not bode well. ELLE Russia used to be one of the best in the country.”

Are you impressed with ELLE Russia using a reprint this month? Are you a fan of reprints at all? Share your opinion with us and preview the content inside the thread here.
