Once you get over that facial expression, note Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps' brown shoulder marks, the visual results of "cupping."

Five days into the Rio Olympics, spectators have much to meditate over. Will French gymnast Samir Ait Said ever attempt a hurdle again? How did the world only just register the uncanny resemblance between American archer Brady Ellison and Leonardo DiCaprio? Why do Michael Phelps and several other Olympians appear to have escaped a struggle with a giant octopus? While only time and omniscient beings can resolve the first two musings, the answer to the latter is simple: cupping.

Get your minds out of the gutter. The ancient Chinese healing practice of “cupping” — in addition to helping Kim Kardashian relieve her (perfectly slicked-back pony-induced?) neck pain this Monday — is having an Olympic moment. (more…)

Opening Ceremony and Calvin Klein (and, indirectly, Kate Moss) are supporting AIDS research in #theircalvins. Yesterday the newest offering from the two brands’ ongoing collaboration (past releases include versions of the Modern Cotton bralette and boy shorts embroidered with an OC label) debuted on the Opening Ceremony website. The capsule collection features four crewneck tees — two black, two white — screen-printed with images from the David Sims-lensed 1993 Calvin Klein Underwear campaign.

“These images might as well have been shot today, they’re so fresh,” Leon told The New York Times, adding that the 90s resurgence had little to do with his and fellow creative director Carol Lim’s choice of subject matter: “Calvin Klein had a specific point of view that was innovative. I don’t think that we like being nostalgic or bringing things back for the sake of trends. It’s about moments that have been ingrained in us.” (more…)

Blogger Chiara Ferragni Just Scored Her Second Vogue Cover and We Love It (Forum Buzz)

Chiara Ferragni has a list of magazine covers that most models could only dream of. She made history back in 2015 by becoming the first blogger to ever grace the cover of Vogue, securing herself a cover for Spanish Vogue. Now it’s Vogue Turkey giving Chiara the honor once again, as she poses on the magazine’s recently revealed August 2016 edition. Photographed by Miguel Reveriego, the Italian blogger and entrepreneur gives us a classic and timeless portrait image with perfectly coiffed hair and a complementing makeup look our forum members are just loving.

“Oh wow this is good. I love the hair. The mood. Yes,” added a pleasantly surprised MON. (more…)

Everyone Is Freaking Out About How Much This Olympic Archer Looks Like Leonardo DiCaprio

Today in the world of news that will never make an appearance on the front page of the New York Times but we’re really glad happened anyway: Yet another Leonardo DiCaprio doppelganger has arisen! The latest and second greatest of the Leo look-alike tribe (Dane DeHaan is nothing to sniff at) is Brady Ellison, 27-year-old American Olympic archer.

When Arizona-born Ellison, one of the world’s top-ranked archers, claimed a silver medal at the team event Saturday, his expertly shot arrow pierced through the hearts of Titanic, Revenant and (to keep this brief) Martin Scorsese fans the world over. Ellison, who’s often referred to as “The Prospector” due to his affinity for “finding gold,” shares his Oscar-winning alter ego’s intense stare, dashing goatee and killer bone structure — to a point. We have to admit the resemblance does fade somewhat once Ellis puts down his bow.  (more…)

Teen Vogue has been doing pretty well for itself lately (June/July‘s bore aside) and at the beginning of the year was doing incredible, bestowing upon us covers with the likes of Zoe Kravitz and Willow Smith.

Transgender Model Lea T Broke Barriers at the Rio 2016 Opening Ceremonies



A photo posted by riccardotisci17 (@riccardotisci17) on

Much to our pleasant surprise, the highlight of the Rio Olympics’ Opening Ceremony wasn’t the Stella McCartney-outfitted Brits, the Cameroon team’s stunning dashikis or Gisele’s shimmery strut across Maracana Stadium (although all were sights to behold). Nope, the most inspiring moment of the evening came when Brazilian transgender model Lea T pedaled into the arena, guiding her home team during the Parade of Nations.

The former Givenchy campaign star (bestie Riccardi Tisci cast her in his 2010 campaign, inspiring Lea, née Leandra Medeiros Cerezo, to change her professional surname T as in Tisci) is the first transgender individual to feature prominently in the opening ceremonies. Garbed in a flag-themed frock and white sneakers, the Redken muse rode her flag-ornamented bike with pride. (more…)
