Watch: Naomi Campbell Has Some Opinions on Instagirls

Outside is looking pretty gloomy in the Northeast as we prepare to be hit by an epic snowstorm, but the only thing shadier than the sky right now is Naomi Campbell, who always has the most perfect response to any question about the state of the fashion industry today.

Meredith Vieira sat down with the supermodel to discuss the new crop of supers — the Instagirls — many of whom have gained popularity through their social media presence. Naomi provided her analysis on the phenomena, and as you may have imagined, she’s not necessarily here for these new It girls. 

Naomi noted that she and her generation of supermodel sistren had to “earn our stripes” to get that “super” title. But though she said she’s astonished by how easily supermodeldom is coming to this younger group of girls, she is thankful for having to take a bit of a rockier path to get to where she is today. “Sometimes, it’s easy come, easy go. So, I’m actually grateful for the way I’ve had my career. I wouldn’t want it any other way.”

Does this mean Naomi thinks a chunk of these girls are on their way out? Perhaps. Watch her drop knowledge (and throw a little shade) in the clip above.

Toast the Dog Is Karen Walker’s Latest Campaign Star

Continuing in the tradition of unconventional campaign stars is Karen Walker, who just tapped an Instagram star to front her latest campaign. The very glamorous Insta-model in question is Toast the Dog, aka the cutest little toothless Cavalier King Charles Spaniel on this side of the Internet.

Toast is no stranger to posing with eyewear. A quick peek at her Instagram will show you she is a professional with props, so modeling sunglasses was a piece of cake. Walker says that for the campaign, she looked for a model fitting the following criteria: “We were after a model for this campaign who could fit with our caramel-y color palette and also someone whose hair would work with our three wind machines hitting her from every angle to create a slightly ’70s vibe.” Toast was clearly a shoo-in for this one.

Let’s just come out and say it: This is likely the cutest instance of a dog modeling human clothes since our own Beanie stepped in front of the camera to show you the hottest beanies for the winter season. While we’re a little biased toward Beanie, we’re positively melting at Toast’s efforts for Karen Walker. What can we say? The girl is killing it.

Vogue Japan’s March 2015 Cover Reminds Us of the Good Old Days (Forum Buzz)

We aren’t even out of January, yet Vogue Japan’s March cover surfaced on our forums over the weekend. The magazine hit a home run last month, tapping Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi as its cover star, but that’s about to disappear from newsstands in favor of the magazine’s all-important spring fashion issue. Natalia Vodianova graces the March 2015 cover shot by Patrick Demarchelier, showcasing an outfit from Gucci and a head full of curls.

Has Vogue Japan hit a home run once again? “This is actually beautiful! The best they’ve had so far!” congratulated MON, getting us off to a good start.

“Really great cover! Love the hippie styling and Natalia looks gorgeous here,” justaguy responded in agreement.

Miss Dalloway was also full of enthusiasm and echoed, “Love this cover! The white background works for the Gucci look, and she looks wonderful. But yeah, wow, March issue already, I never get used to their early releases haha.”

“It reminds me of the fabulous old Nippon covers shot by Craig McDean,” GivenchyHomme reminisced.

In full agreement was MON: “THIS!! This reminds me of the covers they had back in their glory days.”

But not everyone was feeling it. “Pretty cover, but it’s getting boring to see the ‘boho’ style in every magazine,” burbuja8910 disapproved. 

“Natalia is not really doing it for me lately. It’s like she’s fallen into the ‘supermodel trap’ where they’re just there being themselves over and over. It sucks because she has always been my favorite and her regular self is too bland so it’s even more boring than Gisele always being bombshell or Kate always being rocker chic,” shared A.D.C.

Check out a fashion shoot inspired by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin from inside the issue and add your own two cents here.

Alice in Wonderland is turning 150 this year and the V&A museum is planning to celebrate with The Alice Look, an exhibition highlighting the central character. The show will explore the impact that Alice has had on fashion and culture.

From May 2 to November 1, the V&A Museum of Childhood will have everything from sketches to music videos, all of which have been influenced by the tale. Some familiar works will be included in the exhibition, like Annie Leibovitz’s famous Alice-themed Vogue photoshoot starring Natalia Vodianova. This work will be on display alongside a collection that includes sketches, footage from runway shows and a rendering of Alice’s iconic outfit — the blue dress, white apron, tights and shoes — done by Josie Smith.

Sounds like it is shaping up to be quite a lovely homage to the beloved children’s character.

Cara Delevingne Interviews Kim Kardashian for LOVE

Cara Delevingne has a fancy new gig as LOVE magazine’s guest editor and for her first spin at the publication, she will be interviewing Kim Kardashian, LOVE‘s latest muse. We can presume only magic will ensue.

This morning, the magazine posted a teaser image to its Instagram of the pair, and we’re more than a little intrigued. The photo, a close-up shot of both Kim and Cara’s faces, features Mrs. Kardashian-West giving her most-perfected serene yet smoldering look, and Cara making one of her signature funny faces. 

LOVE has fully embraced the Kardashian-Jenner clan over the past year, featuring Kendall Jenner on one of its covers. This issue promises more Kendall, but also a generous helping of Kim in a 30-plus page spread shot by Steven Klein. It’s as if LOVE wants to take all our money.

LOVE‘s latest issue is set to hit shelves February 9.

Tom Ford Stars in His Own Fragrance Campaign, Vain or Innovative? (Forum Buzz)

By now, we’re used to seeing designers front their own campaigns. Jason Wu has become a regular face of his own namesake brand, Vivienne Westwood once posed alongside Pamela Anderson in Fall 2009 and it’s pretty well-known that Tom Ford prefers to star in his own advertising campaigns. This time around, the American fashion designer and one-time film director smolders in the new Noir Extreme spots, released on our forums over the weekend. Ford reclines in a stylish chaise longue wearing a crisp white shirt with the buttons undone as he entices us to try the new fragrance, which can be pre-ordered from Ford’s website now.

Are our forum members impressed with Ford’s new ad? “Handsome guy, lovely to see him,” Nymphaea enthused the minute the shot surfaced.

“He’s attractive, but he’s getting more pretentious that kills his appeal little by little,” added OllieJE, unsure about the designer’s presence.

Miss Dalloway shared the same sentiments: “The man is a star, such presence! But I feel like I have seen this shot before, it’s very familiar, they could have done something different with him. He still sells it though!” Job done, right?

Also feeling the same was Thefrenchy, who echoed, “I love how they cropped the forehead to hide his receding hairline. He’s very sexy in the photo, though.”

Forum member justaguy agreed: “Don’t care for Tom posing in his own ads. Yes, he’s good-looking, but he’s got the same look whether it’s an ad, campaign, cover, etc.”

[Piece Of Me] basically wasn’t bothered: “Not the most original shot and I feel like we’ve seen it all before, but honestly who cares? So sexy!”

Do you think it’s pretentious of Ford to front his own campaigns, or just downright genius? Share your opinion with us here.
