Guests were treated to a light supper, drinks, gift bags, success stories from the five business women, and, of course, a visual feast in the way of Michelle and Camilla’s stylish outfits.

Camilla donned her signature style, as expected, in a loose kaftan-style maxi complete with bohemian-luxe jewels, while Michelle stood out despite the lack of colour in her getup. She gave the typical LBD a sexy twist with a midriff cut-out, added sophistication in the form of pointed-toe pumps, and kept the look feminine with side-parted waves and a soft-pink lip. (more…)

Miranda Kerr joined the ginormous list of celebrities at the 2014 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Event at LA’s Chateau Marmoment on Tuesday, October 21, stepping out of her comfort zone in an embellished 2-piece pantsuit.

We were pleasantly surprised. Miranda’s been sticking to ladylike pencil skirts, tough wet-look leathers or simple monochrome of late, but now this eye-catching ensemble has shifted her back into the spotlight for us. In fact, the supermodel could be our new poster girl for all things boho-luxe if she keeps it up.

We love that the matching beaded detail was heavy for the jacket, but tame down the bottom, and was brought together perfectly with a plain black tank singlet and single-pendant necklace. The bronze pointed-toe heels and black leather bag fitted in perfectly, as well as her tousled waves and fresh makeup.

Well done, Miranda, you ticked every box this time around.

Marion Cotillard Returns for Latest Lady Dior Campaign

Lady Dior

No Christian Dior campaign season would be complete without Marion Cotillard, one of the French design house’s several muses. The actress was once again tapped to appear in the label’s ads for its famed Lady Dior bags. The campaign, shot in Paris, pictures a hazy Marion wandering through the city during the evening, clutching her expensive carryall, while staring mysteriously into the camera. 

For the Craig McDean-shot ads (due out in the November glossies), Marion was outfitted in looks from Christian Dior’s Pre-Fall collection, according to WWD

Marion has been a tried and true ambassador for Dior, and she’s certainly living up to her title in these ads. Check out all three images from the campaign below. (more…)

Vogue Ukraine Welcomes Missy Rayder as Its November Cover Girl (Forum Buzz)

Missy Rayder makes a welcome appearance on Vogue Ukraine’s November cover. The magazine continues to make its mark on the print industry after launching back in March 2013. This time, it features the American model wearing a leather and fur dress teamed with fishnet tights. Missy’s brunette locks are concealed by a black wig that was styled into a bouffant bob. Vogue Ukraine also enlisted fresh talent by tapping photographer Stockton Johnson to shoot the November cover story — his first major Vogue cover shoot.

Vogue Ukraine November 2014 Missy Rayder


As usual, members of our forums were quick to post their diverse opinions, and we wouldn’t have it any other way! “Lovely to see her but hair ruins it for me,” wrote KateTheGreatest, not getting the thread off to a very good start.

“Love it, but the hair, just kills my buzz for this. But still so cool seeing Missy here!” replied justaguy, who echoed the same sentiment.

MON made a valid point by calling it a replica of British Vogue‘s November 2014 cover: “Taylor Swift Vogue UK?” He went on to add, “The composition is uncanny.”

Also referencing Taylor’s cover was Benn98, who commented, “God, squint and it looks like Helena Christensen! The wig feels unnecessary. The composition similarity to UK Vogue is indeed uncanny, but obviously incidental. This cover’s got more of a darker mood, and I like that.”

MyNameIs changed the mood of the thread completely: “I actually adore this cover. It’s so luxe and sophisticated but with an edge and sex appeal. I love the hair too. She looks like a femme fatale. Love the colors too.”

“It’s always a pleasure and a delight to see Missy on a Vogue cover,” raved mikel.

Tuesday Treat: Watch David Beckham Looking Sexy on a Motorcycle and in a Suit for Haig Club Whiskey

Whatever club David Beckham is in, you best believe we want to join. Scottish whiskey brand Haig better make room for a few more members because now that it’s tapped the professional soccer player turned professional handsome man, we’re going to be drinking a lot more whiskey.

David appears in the label’s latest campaign for its Haig Club offering and yes, he is looking his usual fine, motorcycle-riding self. He and his crew of well-dressed mates travel across the countryside to convene at a riverside castle, where they swill booze and look very snazzy posing for a picture with glasses in hand, naturally. David and his friends are dressed impeccably, though we are quite fond of that hunter green velvet jacket the ex-soccer player is sporting at the end of the spot. We want it for ourselves. Besides, we like David best when he’s not wearing a jacket…or a shirt.

Check out the video above and tell us if it doesn’t make you wish it was happy hour right now…and David was the bartender.
