A Windswept Amy Schumer Poses for Marie Claire’s August Cover (Forum Buzz)

Amy Schumer has certainly become a regular fixture at the newsstand this year, having made an appearance on Vanity Fair in May and on Vogue‘s current issue for July. Marie Claire is now the latest publication to jump on the bandwagon, securing the American funny girl as its August 2016 cover subject. Last month, the title served up a fairly simple shot of Blake Lively but pumped up the energy for this shoot, opting to use an unconventional image of Amy looking off to the side (a tFS forum member no-no) and appearing as though she’s having the time of her life before the lens of Mark Seliger.

The cover sent our forum members mixed signals. “Why on earth did they choose a photo where she’s not looking? Why?” asked a dumbfounded MON the second the cover came to light.

“Awful, why her again,” sniggered zzzyao76. (more…)

Leslie Jones Slayed at the Ghostbusters Premiere, Thanks to Christian Siriano

In a happy ending to rival Dana and Louis being freed from their possessor and the island of Manhattan being covered in marshmallow, on Saturday night, badass comedian Leslie Jones stole the show at Ghostbusters’ Los Angeles premiere. Although all the leading ladies looked fabulous, it was the drama surrounding Jones’ look that made her ensemble all the more striking.

 

The world premiere was a blast! #Ghostbusters, in theaters this Friday.

For those who missed the inciting incident, a few weeks ago, Jones — who co-stars in the remake alongside Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon — took to Twitter to vent her frustration at not being able to find a designer to dress her for the (thematically) green carpet. Her tweet elicited an immediate response from Christian Siriano, who volunteered to put his very practiced hands to the task of dressing the curvy Saturday Night Live regular. (more…)

Your style dreams have come true. Today, television personality, model, trendsetter, Vogue UK contributor and Mulberry-bag inspirer Alexa Chung announced the launch of her own fashion label. The eponymous ready-to-wear line will be sold at Selfridges, Galeries Lafayette, Matchesfashion.com, MyTheresa, SSENSE and its own e-commerce site beginning in May 2017.

Alexachung will feature it all — denim, daywear, eveningwear, shoes, jewelry and other special products. While we’ve known she had it in her for years, the 32-year-old told Business of Fashion she only recently came around to the idea: “I feel as though I’m kind of prepared to do it now. If it had been any time sooner than this, I either wouldn’t be responsible enough or have been able to take on this kind of feat.”

FKA Twigs Resembles an Avatar on ELLE’s Disappointing August Cover (Forum Buzz)

There’s no doubt that ELLE has been stepping up its game of late. After all, it gave us a gorgeous Bella Hadid cover for June and spotlighted the cast of Ghostbusters last month. Therefore, we were surprised to see the questionable styling of FKA Twigs on the new August 2016 cover. Photographed by Paola Kudacki, our forum members appreciated the sight of someone out of the ordinary but weren’t impressed by David Vandewal’s use of Prada on the newsstand cover shot below.

“The text is a mess, and she kind of looks like a CGI game character?” questioned an unimpressed t-rex, the moment the cover dropped just before the weekend.

“She looks like an Avatar,” replied AnaD sharing the same sentiments toward the cover. (more…)

Even a Topless Gisele Bündchen Can’t Save This Givenchy Jeans Campaign (Forum Buzz)

After the hype surrounding Givenchy’s mainline advertising campaign died out (with the ads receiving a bashing on our forums), the brand quickly began to generate buzz via social media by asking followers to guess who the new face of Givenchy Jeans was. A whole host of names were thrown around but we should’ve recognized those golden blond highlights anywhere since it’s Gisele Bündchen fronting the campaign for Fall 2016. Following in the footsteps of Candice Swanepoel and Irina Shayk, Gisele was shot by photographic duo Luigi & Iango as she posed topless on the shoulders of Brazilian actor Cauã Reymond.

So far, members of our forums aren’t exactly jumping for joy over the campaign. “Yes, good to see Gisele in a Givenchy campaign but doing the same pose as their previous ‘Jeans’ stars and so… They wanted to create a hype around nothing. This is just another example that she is more a Givenchy girl than a Chanel girl,” posted an uninspired Lola701.

“If only they’d drop this concept… I’ll never complain about Gisele being in anything but this is so beyond boring,” ranted kokobombon.

“Boring. They could have chosen a cheap random newbie to model for this. Zzzzz,” exclaimed an unimpressed DutchHomme.

Are you a fan? The brand could’ve at least switched up the concept, you must admit. Add your own two cents here.
