Vogue Brazil Taps Amanda Wellsh and Aline Weber for Rio Themed Issue (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Brazil gives us two covers to choose from this month and tapped Amanda Wellsh and Aline Weber to front both. On the first cover for the Rio-themed issue, the Brazilian models look ready for a night on the town wearing stunning black evening dresses with slicked back hair. The second cover sees the duo more relaxed sitting on a sandy beach with sea-soaked tresses while gazing down the lens of Giampaolo Sgura.

Members of theFashionSpot forums continue to express their excitement for both covers. “I like both covers!! So chill, so relax[ed]. I’m not even a fan of either one of the models!” comments alonsoJonathan, setting a positive attitude for the thread.

“Both covers are really good and always happy to see Aline!” raves justaguy.

TheoG agrees and expresses his excitement for the covers: “Surprised Sgura shot this! Overall I love this, especially Aline.”

Also to share the same sentiments is MON who posts, “I love how in the first cover, they look so young and innocent, then the second cover is the exact opposite — mature women that are down to business! I love this!”

“I like the story of the two covers side by side, from the beach to a night club,” enthuses kokobombon.

Gazebo even goes as far as to the say, “Best Vogue cover in a few years. It’s both real and aspirational,” and goes on to write, “I love Amanda a lot, next month give her a solo cover please.”

“The second cover is so sleek and sophisticated. Not really what you’d expect from Vogue Brazil. It would have been beautiful on its own. I really hope the multiple covers trend does not continue into next year though…” notes orchidee.

Which cover will you be getting from your local newsstand? See inside the thread for both covers side by side and join the discussion here.

Cosmopolitan Taps Rita Ora for December Issue

Rita Ora is everywhere. If you don’t believe us, just check out this month’s issue of Cosmopolitan, heralding the Britpop singer’s ubiquity. Indeed, you’ll find Ora on Iggy Azalea’s latest single, “Black Widow,” and in the new Fifty Shades of Grey movie, in which she plays Mia Grey, Christian Grey’s little sis. The cover is obviously to promote her role in the film, which is due out in theaters February 13 – right before Valentine’s Day. How timely.


Ora had a lot to talk about with the ladymag, including her ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris, whom she’s evaded questions about in the past. “It was the right guy at the wrong time,” she said. “I was about to start a tour, and he was also all over the place. There’s only so much you can do when you don’t see each other. I really admire people who have long-distance relationships. It’s an incredible achievement. I couldn’t do it.”

The issue is set to hit newsstands November 4.

Lottie Moss Stars in RED Valentino’s Fall Campaign

If nepotism is wrong, in the case of Lottie Moss, we don’t want it to be right. The younger sister of supermodel Kate has captured the fascination of the fashion set, partly because she’s got a great face for modeling, but also because she’s related to a fashion legend. The 16-year-old has already snagged a spot in the campaign for Calvin Klein Jeans’ The Re-Issue Project with (apropos as her big sis starred in the ads back in the 90s) shot by another famous fashion offspring, Michael Avedon.

But if you thought Lottie’s stint with CK was a one-off modeling gig, think again. You’re about to see a whole lot more of her now that she’s snagged herself another high-profile project. Lottie is this season’s muse for RED Valentino, the hipper, younger version of the Garavani namesake brand.  (more…)

Does Carey Mulligan Deserve the Cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK’s December Issue? (Forum Buzz)

Carey Mulligan has landed the latest cover of U.K. Harper’s Bazaar for the magazine’s December issue. Carey was photographed by Bazaar regular Alexi Lubomirski for the British glossy. The Great Gatsby star joins the likes of Marion Cotillard and Cate Blanchett, who have previously fronted Bazaar‘s “Women of the Year” editions. We currently only have a sneak peek at the cover for subscribers, but Carey’s appearance is still causing quite the discussion among forum members.

UK Harper's Bazaar December 2014 Carey Mulligan


“Who cares about Carey Mulligan?! Honestly… Can someone answer me that? How do these niche actresses sell any copies of anything?? Is it proven that they increase newsstand sales? I get why editors put Angelina and Aniston on the cover but Carey f*cking Mulligan??? And more than once?” slammed an uninterested A.D.C.

But pixiedust1603 disagreed and replied, “Well Carey is one of my favorite actresses especially after seeing her in Skylight, a play which got her rave reviews and broke box office records, so I’m happy to see her on the cover and it is also her best cover in a while. I don’t get why actresses have to be ‘interesting’ to the public to be taken seriously or deserve magazine covers. I’d rather hear from the likes of Carey than hear Jennifer Aniston or Goop talk about their personal lives for the millionth time.”

Also voicing their opinion was [Piece Of Me], who explained, “Carey is probably one of the most talented actresses of her generation. She has had a lot of good roles already and gets critical acclaim. It’s not like she is on the cover for doing nothing or because of some lifestyle website she is launching.”

The topic of Carey’s relevance soon died down and it seems as though our forum members ultimately liked the cover image. “I love Carey and that subs cover makes me want to subscribe. Have always been a fan of HB UK,” raved a more than satisfied ThatGuyPaul.

“I quite resent not being a subscriber now — love that image! Hope the newsstand cover will be just as good. I don’t get the Carey backlash. She doesn’t even get that many fashion covers in the UK to begin with. I recall only 1 ELLE cover, and no Vogue, Glamour or Marie Claire! This cover is probably promoting her upcoming film, Suffragette (title says it all), which will be painstakingly appropriate to the Harper’s woman,” enthused Benn98.

Kim Kardashian Gets Another Painted Birkin for Her Birthday, Explains Why Styling North Is So Important


Image: FayesVision/

Kim Kardashian has such an extensive collection of Birkins, she’s actually cool with her toddler daughter getting her pricey diaper bag version all wet with milk. Kim added to her collection of soiled expensive purses last week with a birthday gift from her daughter, North, and husband, Kanye West. Apparently, Papa Yeezy purchased a Birkin for his wife and then let little Nori go to town on it, painting the bag into oblivion. According to Kim, the purse was so well-done, she initially thought Kanye had commissioned an artist to do it. “Kanye had a box [with an Hermes purse in it] and I opened it up and it was all painted really cool and on my computer was this message that said ‘Play’ and it was a video of my daughter sitting outside painting the purse,” she told the Mirror. “I had thought it was this new artist who had painted this purse [but] it was my daughter. It was amazing.”

Another Birkin kicks the bucket. But don’t think Kim is worrying about it — she’s got more pressing concerns, like making sure her 16-month-old daughter is dressed to the nines at all times. Kim has come under criticism for how she clothes young North, particularly for that mesh and lace see-through number she outfitted her daughter in for the Givenchy show in Paris last month. But Kim says she dresses her daughter like a mini fashion plate so that North can look back on her baby photos with pride. “It’s hard to find cool baby clothes,” she told Grazia. “Mums want so many frilly things and it’s hard to find a line that doesn’t have all of that. There is nothing worse than when you look at baby photos and you’re like, ‘What was I wearing, why would my mum ever dress me like that.’ I want her to look back and be like, ‘I was dressed so cool.'”

Not that looking “cool” matters if you’re a baby, but we guess when you’re involuntarily in the first family of fashion, you’ve got to keep up appearances.
