Emily Blunts Stars on InStyle’s Tacky, Dated November Cover (Forum Buzz)

Ever since InStyle‘s redesign in February, our forum members have declared their love for the magazine on a regular basis. Just about every cover has been an instant hit, but we didn’t know what to expect from new Editor-in-Chief Laura Brown (formerly of Harper’s Bazaar). The magazine’s November issue reveals that change is in the air — and not necessarily for the better. The sleek and polished design we’ve enjoyed for the past year appears to be replaced with dated fonts from the 00s and an overly airbrushed cover star (actress Emily Blunt).

Members of our forums saw the cover and wept. “Well I’m guessing the is the first cover with input from the Bazaar girl that took over from Ariel [Foxman] because it screams of US Bazaar tackiness,” exclaimed a far from overjoyed A.D.C, the second the cover dropped earlier today.

“Exactly. I guess it’s goodbye to beautiful, exciting, offbeat covers and hello to predictable and corny covers,” replied a less than impressed Marc10. (more…)

Laverne Cox Makes a Case for Berets on the Cover of Ladygunn Magazine

OK, Gucci, Blair Waldorf, Carrie Bradshaw, Laverne Cox — you’ve convinced us. This winter, we’re bringing back the beret. In the latest issue of indie magazine Ladygunn, Laverne Cox is Twiggy meets Madeline in perhaps her most captivating look to date. On the cover, the Rocky Horror Picture Show ringmaster rocks a tan Reformation top (we could spot that ribbing a mile away), a tomato red Maje sweater and a coordinating (and might we add, incredible) beret with Alexis Bittar jewelry. Cox models the perfect thick, floating 60s cut crease courtesy of Deja Davenport, who went with seafoam green eyeliner, because who doesn’t need a break from black? (more…)

Watch: Zoë Kravitz Applies Her War Paint and Hangs With Sheep in New YSL Beauty Short

Zoë Kravitz is our ultimate beauty inspiration. From her unapologetically bold makeup choices to her enviable cascade of baby braids to her delicate yet daring collection of piercings (she arguably got the septum resurgence going), the Lolawolf singer always nails it. Which is why we were unsurprised when, Yves Saint Laurent Beauty named the actress, model, musician and style star as its newest muse last May. Since joining forces with the celebrated French brand, Kravitz has debuted a more classic, glamorous look, often opting for a high-shine crimson mouth to go with her dramatic winged eyeliner.

Kravitz sports this same high-gloss lip in her new YSL beauty ad-slash-web-series-installment. Lensed by French filmmaker Fabien Constant (known for Mademoiselle C, his Carine Roitfeld documentary) the “Before the Light” series will also feature South Korean singer Gain and Lilly Wood and the Prick frontwoman Nili Hadida.

Actress Felicity Jones Makes Her UK Harper’s Bazaar Debut (Forum Buzz)

Our forums were pleasantly surprised when British Harper’s Bazaar featured model Mariacarla Boscono on the October cover, but we should have known that the use of models would be short-lived. Back to profiling actresses for November, Felicity Jones makes her debut in a doll-like photo wearing Burberry’s just-shown collectionBazaar regular David Slijper captured the British beauty for the occasion, with one of the two covers outshining the other.

The cover for subscribers (above) was the first to reach our forums. “Love what she’s wearing, and the overall mood, but this is not even a subscriber’s image. Too much empty space above her head. I’m glad to see Felicity finally getting some major covers, but won’t exactly rush to read her feature,” voiced Benn98 immediately.

“It’s got a strange charm, this shot. The more I look at it, the more I like it — but I certainly didn’t feel like that when I first saw it,” admitted tigerrogue. (more…)

Watch: Kendall Jenner, Zendaya, Olivia Wilde and More Want You to #VoteYourFuture

With just over a month to go until November 8 aka Election Day aka D-Day, tensions are running high. A recent poll of approximately 5,500 female registered voters found that 53 percent of women are feeling “scared” about the upcoming election. Even the fashion set, who have the Spring 2017 collections to distract them from the late night Twitter rants and anxiety-inducing debates, are taking notice.

To wit: Kendall Jenner, Zendaya, Julia Roberts, Olivia Wilde, Emma Stone and more style stars recently lent their voices to the “Vote For Your Future” initiative. Lensed by Alejandro Iñárritu, David O. Russell, Tom McCarthy, Joss Whedon and Armando Bo and spearheaded by Anonymous Content CEO Steve Golin, the campaign aims to drum up voter participation.

In the just-over-three-minute PSA, the red carpet stunners, along with a bevy of other celebs, ask fellow citizens: “What do you care about?” For Roberts, it’s clean oceans. For Zendaya, it’s the fact that humans don’t “treat each other right.”

Watch the full clip above and keep in mind that, in most states, the voter registration deadline hovers somewhere between October 14 (New York) to October 24 (California). Make sure you’re good to go here.

Demi Lovato Looks Like a Kardashian on Glamour’s November Cover (Forum Buzz)

Glamour magazine has undeniably been killing it lately, delivering fantastic covers one after the other, including last month’s issue featuring three models. But the title appears to have slipped for November with a generic and poorly styled cover featuring Demi Lovato. Photographed by Carter Smith, Demi posed before a bland grey studio backdrop with poker straight hair and wears a Project Runway-esque look from Diesel Black Gold. Cue the major sighs of disappointment.

To say our forum members were underwhelmed would be an understatement. “That outfit looks like a DIY/Pinterest project where someone didn’t want to throw out an old biker jacket, so they turned it into a dress,” mocked an unforgiving tigerrogue the second the cover dropped.
