Amy Schumer Makes Her Debut on Vogue’s July Cover (Forum Buzz)

Each month our forums endlessly debate who might turn up on the cover of Vogue. The usual names always arise, but we’re pleasantly surprised to see Amy Schumer as Vogue‘s cover star for July 2016. Following her Vanity Fair appearance just two months ago, the comedy queen was once again shot by Annie Leibovitz, on location at New York City’s Central Park. Similar to Katy Perry‘s 2013 cover, Amy poses nonchalantly on the grass, decked out in a figure-hugging Dolce & Gabbana dress selected by the magazine’s very own Tonne Goodman.

Per usual, the real question remains: were our forum members impressed? “For crying out loud, this can’t be the best cover shot they had! Her face looks especially unflattering here!” cried out a disapproving Miss Dalloway the moment the cover dropped.

“She is way more lively than this Vogue! What an uncomfortable angle,” agreed a disgruntled jeffandtheworld. (more…)

Amy Schumer and Anna Wintour Pull a Freaky Friday in This Hilarious Skit

In the latest Vogue Original Short, Anna Wintour takes on — and, of course, conquers — the comedy world. To complement Amy Schumer’s July cover, the Condé Nast creative director and Trainwreck star filmed a Freaky Friday-esque bit.

To give you all some context, Amy’s professed just how little interest she has in the world of fashion. “I don’t think it’s stupid; there’s no moral reasoning,” she tells Vogue. “It’s just not my thing.” Gesturing toward her yoga pants and navy-blue puffer, she continues: “I just have this sense of entitlement that I should be able to feel comfortable at all times, like I could go to bed at any moment in what I’m wearing.”

This explains why she crashes and burns as Anna. In a meeting to discuss Amy’s feature, the two defiantly declare one another’s jobs “easy” and a life swap challenge ensues. Amy quite literally takes a dive in Wintour’s shoes, hopelessly trying to differentiate between cardigans and choke down a Gisele Bündchen-worthy lunch. Wintour, meanwhile, slays the crowd at the Comedy Cellar, ending her set with a mic drop to raucous applause. She even pulls off the fashion crime of wearing her sunglasses at night. The woman can really do it all.

New Marc Jacobs Ad Campaign Celebrates the Strength of the LGBTQ Community in the Wake of the Orlando Shooting

Marc Jacobs is the king of the politically charged fashion statement. Over the past year, he’s come out in strident support of Planned Parenthood, dedicated his Spring ad campaign to the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage and featured plus-size rock star Beth Ditto on his Spring 2016 runway. The designer’s Spring 2016 promo was also the season’s most diverse. Jacobs accompanied the spread with eloquent anecdotes discussing exactly why he’d chosen each of his subjects, making their personalities come alive on the page.

Now, in the midst of Pride Month and the wake of the horrific Orlando shooting, Marc Jacobs has once again shone the spotlight on those who challenge the status quo, both in their actions and simply by existing. Part of the trauma of the shooting, aside from it being the most fatal in American history, was that it occurred in the age of social media. We have unprecedented insight into all 49 victims’ lives and even their last moments thanks to sources like Instagram and Snapchat. Regardless of our sexual identification, we can identify. (more…)

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…)
