Giampaolo Sgura Gets the Blame for Vogue Germany’s Awful August Covers (Forum Buzz)

According to our forums, Vogue Germany has been descending a very slippery slope toward mediocrity. After the mess that was Toni Garrn‘s cover last month, the title moves swiftly on to its August offering, tapping not one, but three models to pose for photographer Giampaolo Sgura. Edita Vilkeviciute, Mica Arganaraz and Constance Jablonski each go solo on the covers, battling it out in the same setting.

You can bet our forum members were less than impressed. “What’s wrong with Vogue Germany this year?” immediately questioned Oxymore.

“It seems that Sgura shot almost all the covers for this year, and it’s very depressing and sad,” burbuja8910 acknowledged.

Also underwhelmed was orchidee: “This could have looked gorgeous, but I think the lighting and the Photoshop make her look demonic. Edita is gorgeous, but Sgura is so overrated.”

As was Benn98, who ranted, “The man simply doesn’t belong at Vogue. InStyle should hostage him with an exclusivity contract because he’s way more effective for them. I can see what they went for here, but the result is so depressing. The shot isn’t cover worthy, layout is a mess, and what’s with the shoe?”

Creative wasn’t having any of it, either. “What a mess. Vogue Germany is going downhill…” he declared.

Vogue Germany needs to stop…” suggested MDNA.

Love her or hate her, you can’t deny that Taylor Swift has got some great style. The singer expertly puts a fresh, modern touch on retro silhouettes and can rock a crop top like no other. It was only a matter of time before Tay-Tay got her own clothing line. Chinese e-tailer JD.com is teaming up with the “Blank Space” singer on a collection for its U.S. Mall site that will sell “authentic American” wares. And what is more authentically American than a blonde woman who used to sing country music but has crossed over to pop?

Witness Taylor Swift’s Total Street Style Transformation This Year

Taylor Swift will be peddling dresses, tops and sweatshirts for the e-tailer, a collection which will come out just in time for when her 1989 tour hits Shanghai, November 10-12. JD.com does have an English language website and does ship to the United States so we’re hoping that Taylor’s collection will also be available for her Stateside fans. But for now, we’ll just be standing by waiting to see what Ms. Swift has in store for the forthcoming range.

Best News Ever? There’s a Good-for-You Algae That Tastes Just Like Bacon

Dulse

As delicious as it is, the sad truth is that bacon isn’t good for you. Bummer. But wait – there may be a remedy for you health-conscious bacon-lovers out there. A particular strain of red algae called dulse is being developed by researchers at Oregon State University. Apparently, dulse is packed with twice the nutritional value of kale and that, coupled with the delicious taste of bacon, means you can enjoy your favorite breakfast food guilt-free. 

Researchers say that when the seaweed is fried, it unleashes its bacon flavor. Dulse has been eaten by people in parts of northern Europe for quite some time and the researchers are looking to develop products to help sell the superfood. “We now have about five products that we think will be very good commercial products,” OSU business professor Chuck Toombs said. “This stuff grows, under the right conditions, five times as fast as anything else.” 

We’re curious to taste the stuff for ourselves, but if it tastes as much like bacon as they say it does, dulse could be a real game-changer.

Christian Dior Opens Canadian Flagship Boutique

Christian Dior recently opened its first Canadian flagship Dior and Dior Homme locations in Vancouver at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. The shops were inspired by the architect Peter Marino, who is behind the historical Dior house on Avenue Montaigne in Paris. Nothing was spared with the selection of contemporary artists who were carefully selected to tie in Dior exquisiteness throughout every inch of the Canadian stores. Take, for example, the Louis XVI-style marble and bronze antique fireplace in the evening salon and the zodiac lighting in the shape of Mr. Dior’s Aquarius sign in the fine jewellery salon.

Boutique in Vancouver at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver

The Dior boutique in Vancouver has two floors with the main floor displaying luxury bags, fine jewellery and watches. The second floor is sheer extravagance catering to ready-to-wear, eveningwear, shoes and it even has a VIP fitting room. Don’t fret gentlemen, there is also a Dior Homme boutique that has opened at the same time. The two stores are connected through the inside, although they both have a separate entrance.
