Steven Meisel Out at Vogue Italia? (Forum Buzz)

Are you sitting down? Steven Meisel and Vogue Italia are allegedly parting ways. While we anticipate the release of the June 2015 issue, no hints have been dropped as to who the next cover star will be, but discussions in our forums suggest that Steven Meisel wasn’t Franca Sozzani‘s photographer of choice for the shoot. The duo purportedly had creative differences when debating the theme of the shoot and have fiercely parted ways. The news (if indeed true) is sure to send shockwaves throughout the industry. Meisel has achieved a legacy at the magazine, photographing every single cover under Sozzani, starting in 1988 with model Robyn MacKintosh

Our forum members are currently sharing their disbelief. “That wouldn’t shock me. If Meisel himself turned up on the cover, that would shock me,” laughed tigerrogue.

“NO!!!! Please don’t let Meisel go! Vogue Italia is the most artistic Vogue edition and without Meisel it will probably lose that image,” DutchHomme cried out.

“That is intriguing. I would be really shocked if Meisel stopped photographing for the cover,” shared a concerned Style Savvy.

Nepenthes is also in a state of shock, writing, “My first reaction to this would be sadness. I don’t know if it’d be for the best or not but I certainly hope he stays.”

“Ugh, Im gonna miss him for Vogue Italia. One of the few Vogue magazines that actually produced amazing, intriguingly beautiful editorials/covers,” VersaceVixen009 echoed.

But not everyone was saddened at the prospect. “Wowww thanks for all the good gossip, guys! It would be nice for VI to have rotating photographer covers. Steven Klein one month, Paolo Roversi the next, so on,” commented t-rex.

“Meisel’s work over the past year or so hasn’t warranted the hold he has on VI to be honest. I’d personally welcome a change,” added JesseDillon.

Nicolette Mason’s Christian Siriano Wedding Dress Was Everything

This weekend was a big one for blogger Nicolette Mason, who tied the knot with her partner Ali Talan at a ceremony at the Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The affair was attended by a few familiar faces like blogger Gabi Fresh, trans activist Janet Mock and designer Christian Siriano, who also happened to have created Mason’s stunning wedding dress.

The custom ivory gown had nude mesh overlay and was covered in rose gold paillettes in the shape of flowers. They created a kind of inverted ombré effect that was, in a word, gorgeous. Mason called the dress her “dream gown” and from the looks of it, it was exactly that. But besides being ridiculously stunning, the dress was also pretty versatile, as Mason and crew hit up Brooklyn Bowl after the ceremony for some good ol’ fashioned bowling in the very fancy dress. And, of course, not a hair or paillette was left out of place.

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Is Heading Back to NYC for 2015

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

After all the hub-bub around the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in London, you would think the lingerie giant might be interested in a second staging of its annual event across the pond. But it seems that is not the case, at least not this year, now that Victoria’s Secret has announced that it’s coming back to New York City for 2015.

Victoria’s Secret is celebrating its 20th anniversary of the famous catwalk show this year, so it makes sense that the lingerie retailer might want to stick to its roots and hold the milestone event stateside. “New York City was the site of the first ever Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 1995, and holds a special place in our history and our hearts,” Victoria’s Secret CEO Sharen Jester Turney said. “For this year’s show, our twentieth, we’re returning to where it all began.”

Sorry, UK lingerie fans. Looks like Victoria’s Secret is going back to its roots for this one. Let the media madness begin.

Watch Four Minutes of Rihanna Spinning in the Full-Length Dior Secret Garden IV Video

Care for more Rihanna x Dior? The French Fashion house has released a four-minute version of its “Secret Garden IV” film with the pop singer and in this one, there is a lot more running, twirling and general glamour and badassery from Riri.

And when we say there is more twirling, we mean A LOT MORE TWIRLING. We would have been pretty dizzy filming this spot, but Rihanna spins like a pro through the halls of Versailles and out in the garden in all her very fancy Dior duds. The singer stomps with authority down one of the palace’s halls, turning around only to cast the fiercest of glances over her shoulder. Yeah, it’s pretty epic, as is basically anything Rihanna does. If you were feeling the short version of the film, you’re gonna love this one.

Check out Riri’s four-minute overture for Dior in the video above.

Ciara Announced as the New Face of Roberto Cavalli (Forum Buzz)

Whether we like it or not, celebrities are favored by fashion houses worldwide. Rihanna is signed with Christian Dior, Kristen Stewart fronts various Chanel campaigns and now, Ciara has been announced as the new face of Roberto Cavalli. The singer, who is also favored by Riccardo Tisci, replaces Nicki Minaj in this first look at Cavalli’s Fall 2015 campaign. Peter Dundas was appointed creative director of Cavalli back in March and this is the first campaign under his command. 

Our forum members began to discuss the image straight away. “That’s STUNNING! Ciara is one of the sexiest women alive! Powerful shot! Miles better than Minaj,” raved miguelalmeida.

“She looks really beautiful. Nicki’s can’t even compare,” GivenchyHomme agreed.

Sharing the same attitude was Lola701: “This is great! I don’t mind a celebrity in a campaign when it is as good.”

MON was quick to post his opinion, too, raving, “STUNNING!!! The body, the pose, the way the clothes drape! Everything is pure perfection! She is gorgeous and this is just beyond! And it actually looks classy!”

In agreement was Street_a_Licious: “This looks effing awesome.”
