Kim Kardashian Strips Down for GQ’s New Cover

She’s certainly no stranger to posing naked and Kim Kardashian is back at it again for GQ‘s latest. Our forums had been rife with speculation about Kim’s top secret shoot in Los Angeles with photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. We had first assumed the shoot was for Vogue Paris after receiving a tidbit inside the Cover Rumor Thread, but we’ve been completely blindsided by the shoot turning up on the front of GQ ‘s 10th annual Love, Sex & Madness issue. In true Kim fashion, Mrs. West stripped down for the occasion wearing nothing but a black leather trench clutched against her bare skin.

We’re certainly going to be seeing a whole lot more of Kim on the newsstands in the next couple months. She just flew back from Paris having shot with Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld for a Harper’s Bazaar global fashion shoot entitled Bazaar Icons. Who knows, Kim may still be getting the September cover of French Vogue. Stay tuned!

Gigi Hadid Goes Solo as the Face of Stuart Weitzman for Fall 2016 (Forum Buzz)

After several seasons with Gisele Bündchen in the mix, Stuart Weitzman decided to switch things up last season by enlisting beauties Gigi Hadid, Joan Smalls and Lily Aldridge for Spring 2016. Now, as the Fall 2016 campaigns continue to surface, Gigi appears solo as the face of the high-end footwear label. Mario Testino also makes a return as Wetizman’s photographer of choice (his 10th consecutive campaign for the brand). For Weitzman’s signature black and white adverts, Gigi strikes dynamic poses, which were inspired by her own workout routine.

“No Joan this season? Great shot though, and happy for Gigi!” praised forum member happycanadian the moment the campaign dropped.

“Love, love, love this shot. So much energy and the styling looks good. She’s much better when the focus isn’t on her sex-doll face,” commended Benn98. (more…)

He’s Back! Hot Felon Jeremy Meeks Shares His First Official Modeling Photo

 

Our #warriors fan @jmeeksofficial ready for tipoff

A photo posted by WHITE CROSS MANAGEMENT (@whitecrossmanagement) on

It’s been a great month for the female gaze. Genetically perfect human being Ryan Gosling got the ball rolling by proclaiming “women are better than men.” Now, hot felon Jeremy Meeks has resurfaced after a 13-week Instagram hiatus to share his first modeling pictures with the ready and waiting world.

Ever since Meek’s handsome mugshot went viral in 2014, we joined the state of California in anxiously tracking his every move. The smooth criminal (forgive us) was originally sentenced to two years of jail time for the illegal possession of a firearm, which led to his dreamy photo being posted on Stockton Police Department’s Facebook page, garnering hundreds of thousands of likes and ultimately allowing for his discovery by talent agency White Cross Management. (Yet another reason we stand firmly behind gun control.)

“I’m in a place where I will be able to provide for my family and really change my life. I never thought that everyone in the world would recognize me for my looks, so I feel extremely blessed and very thankful,” the 32-year-old has said of his looming modeling career. It’s nice to see an instance in which the prison system has (albeit unwittingly) fulfilled its intended role as a rehabilitative — not strictly punitive — center. (more…)

Watch: Meet the Viral Bath Bombs That Tranform Your Tub Into a Horror Show

At the end of a long, hard day, we indulge in a bath for the sensory experience. In terms of cleaning ourselves, a shower is far more functional. The same could be said of the bath bombs we drop in our tubs. The salts and oils that radiate from these effervescent bulbs would be more effective sans irritating dyes and perfumes, but half the joy is watching the progress of that colorful fizz.

Much like our penchant for scary movies (hear us out). “For [some] being scared in a safe place is a source of enjoyment and makes them feel good physically and can even serve as a confidence boost by reminding us that we can make it through a scary situation, we are strong,” says Margee Kerr, a sociologist who specializes in fear.

Now, you can combine all three sensory experiences, thanks to Belfast-based retailer Bella Muerte Clothing. In addition to selling apparel, Bella Muerte developed its own line of cruelty-free, vegan, gothic bath bombs called hex bombs to appeal to “dark sweet hearts.” (more…)

ELLE UK Opts for a Bella Hadid Reprint for the July Cover (Forum Buzz)

There’s no denying that Bella Hadid is on top of the modeling game right now. She just landed her first Vogue cover, was announced as an ambassador for Dior Beauty and was one of the many faces of Givenchy for Fall 2016. Therefore, can we really blame the British edition of ELLE for reprinting its American sister’s cover shoot a month later? U.K. ELLE, however, opted to use a different shot entirely, reusing a close-up image of Bella wearing a denim jacket as she gazes intensely at the lens of photographer Terry Tsiolis. But for a magazine that always commissions its own shoots, Bella’s reprint comes as a slight shock to our forum members.

“I’m very surprised they reprinted to be honest. I wonder if it could be a limited cover? And someone else has the main cover? I even questioned if it was the U.K. edition, but it’s definitely all in English and the July issue, so I presume it must be? They haven’t reprinted in a long time have they? Excluding the Beyoncé issue,” informed honeycombchild the moment the cover surfaced.

“They haven’t reprinted in a while actually. It’s not a bad shot, but she’s a model, not a celebrity. Surely they could’ve booked her for the edit,” questioned a stunned Benn98. (more…)

This Curvy Blogger Had the Perfect Response to Instagram Removing Her Bikini Photo

 

Take a good look at us three. Do you know what we have in common? The belief that Any Body deserves to look good in what they wear. Be it a swimsuit, a pair of jeans, a dress, lingerie, a crop top. We have seen and heard the shaming directed towards us. We have also seen plus size role models in the West – be it bloggers, models, magazines or advocates – teach us that the world will judge you no matter what and that does not mean you go into hiding. While shooting for this, I realised how I hadn’t been around other plus size friends in swimwear and This made me reflect on how important it is to stay visible despite the hate that might come your way. Because while ppl might shame you, there will be people who look upon you with respect for Who You Are. Follow more body positive people online. Screen who follows you and who you choose to be inspired by or you can relate to. Surround yourself with that and you will see that: 1) you’re definitely not alone in this and 2) you are not supposed to be at war with yourself all the time. And if few celebrate your personal triumphs, it is okay to feel sad but remember that That is not something you have control of. Take charge of what you Can control – your sense of self, your self respect and willingness to view the world with different perspectives. #plussize #southasian #igsg #fatshion #nobodyshame #losehatenotweight #fuckfatphobia #pizzasisters4lyfe #celebratemysize #bodypositive

A photo posted by Aarti Olivia Dubey (@curvesbecomeher) on

With its #RunwayForAll campaign, Instagram made the statement that it’s all about inclusivity and diversity in the fashion world — which makes the following story all the more perplexing.

A few weeks ago, Aarti Olivia Dubey, a plus-size blogger and the founder of Curves Become Her, posted a picture of herself and two other curvy women showing off their bikinis. The snap was a behind-the-scenes look at the photo spread that would accompany Dubey’s article for Cleo Magazine, a Singapore-based publication. With said feature, Dubey would become the first plus-size woman to have her work appear in a Singaporean fashion glossy.

Dubey’s caption oozed with pride: “Do you know what we have in common?” she wrote. “The belief that any body deserves to look good in what they wear.” Despite the fact that it contained no lewd content, Instagram removed the photo a few hours later, having been flagged as inappropriate by multiple users.
