Confession: We might actually subscribe to the upcoming Zendaya app. If her Snapchat content is any indication, the experience is sure to be filled with spot-on karaoke sessions, hilarious one-liners and impeccable style moments.

We’re hoping and praying that some of the promised behind-the-scenes footage follows the actress slash musician slash shoe designer to Capri, where she recently filmed Dolce & Gabbana’s Summer 2017 campaign. Zendaya is one of the many #DGMillenials — “a selection of young influencers who thanks to their discerning style and Instagram prowess are challenging the norms of contemporary communication,” as described by the Italian fashion house’s website — to star in the accessories and gelato-heavy ads. (Looks like Dolce & Gabbana is now taking its marketing cues from Alexander Wang.)

This season around, rather than floral crowns, campaign stars are touting more wearable headgear. Case in point: In two #BTS shots, Z is seen licking a rapidly melting cone wearing (surprise, surprise) chic, street-ready PJs in a pattern that celebrates her dessert of choice. The beauty muse’s brunette waves are held back by a scarf tied headband-style a la Brigitte Bardot. Complementing her print-happy silks are oversized sunnies and a baby blue statement clutch.

Taylor Swift Wanted to Keep Her Very #Real Sexual Assault Deposition Private, but Why?

Demi Lovato once dragged Taylor Swift and her crew for their seemingly contrived, showboaty feminism: “Don’t brand yourself a feminist if you don’t do the work,” said the “Body Say” star. Lovato recently told Glamour that she takes issue with all of Swift’s anointed #squad members being tall and thin, and thus perpetuating unrealistic beauty standards. While Lovato does have a point, in a year that’s seen Gigi Hadid single-elbowedly fend off an assailant and T.Swift continue her emotionally taxing, drawn-out prosecution of Denver radio DJ David Mueller (the man who allegedly groped her behind during a 2013 pre-show meet-and-greet), we’d say the squad is doing its due diligence.

Gigi Hadid, who notably did not press charges against her attacker Vitalii Sediuk, instead took to Lenny Letter “to use what happened to [her] to show that it’s everyone’s right, and it can be empowering, to be able to defend yourself.” Taylor, meanwhile, is fighting the good fight in the public court system, but on the (relative) low.

On Friday, October 21, a judge ruled to keep photos — the staging of which Mueller supposedly used as an opportunity to violate Taylor — from the public. After all, in the age of memes, “it is all but assured that the photograph will be shared for scandalous and prurient interests,” to quote Taylor’s lawyers.

In spite of Taylor’s wish to withhold other details of the case from the public, the transcript of her July 26 deposition about the incident is now available for all to digest. It reads as follows: (more…)

Mica Arganaraz Modeling Chanel’s Cruise 2017 Collection Is a Match Made In Heaven (Forum Buzz)

After Chanel’s mainline advertising campaign for Fall 2016 was a total flop, our forums were ready for whatever else Chanel churned out next. As reported by one of our eagle-eyed forum members back in May, model Mica Arganaraz was spotted on location in St. Tropez shooting with Karl Lagerfeld. Instantly, we recognized the shoot could have been for Chanel’s Cuban-inspired collection’s advertising campaign. Fast forward five months and our suspicions are confirmed. Photographed in full color (a Lagerfeld rarity), the Argentinian beauty looks terrific wearing Chanel’s Cruise 2017 collection and we’re just loving how everything turned out.

Forum members quickly made their feelings clear toward the campaign. “Very beautiful. They managed to capture the spirit of Cuba while shooting the whole thing in St. Tropez. Mica looks very beautiful and joyful. Carine [Roitfeld] did a good job here! That skirt..” cooed a more than appreciative Lola701.

“Stunning pictures!” heralded liberty33r1b. (more…)

At this year’s Met Gala, guests will sport “lumps and bumps,” towering wigs and avant-garde tailoring. Those dressed in “invisible clothing” will require a wide berth on that stairway.

Today, the Metropolitan Museum of Art revealed that its Spring 2017 Costume Institute exhibit and gala will spotlight Comme des Garçons frontwoman Rei Kawakubo. Kawakubo, whose sculptural, fiercely original pieces are the stuff of legend, will be the second living designer to receive such an honor, the first being Yves Saint Laurent in 1983.
