Judith & Charles Unveils Fall 2014 Lookbook

Just as we all look to update our fall work wardrobes (come on now, it’s time to ditch the maxis), Montreal-based Judith & Charles is really beginning to appeal to the modern woman’s desire for simplicity. Its latest lookbook is positively a mix-and-match lesson in putting together your own clever capsule collection.

Mixing opulent staples with more personality-driven statement pieces, Judith & Charles’ new line introduces tonal jacquard, cloque and bonded jersey. Luxury fabrics like alpaca, cashmere, silk and pony hair are tastefully sprinkled through key outerwear pieces, while silk and a wealth of leather make up the bulk of fabric. (more…)

Kyly Clarke Looks Pastel-Perfect in By Johnny

Kyly Clarke looked pastel-perfect when stepping out for Estée Lauder’s Re-Nutriv Ultimate Diamond Dual Infusion Launch on Tuesday night. The wife to cricketer Michael Clarke opted for a colourblocked By Johnny dress, teamed with nude pointed-toe pumps, Cerrone jewels and a coiffed, swept-back do. 

The slim-fitting dress in By Johnny’s exclusive sorbet print looked stunning against Kyly’s bronzed (and incredibly toned) skin. The off-centred point of the strapless piece gave Kyly a little bit of fashionable edge, while the below-the-knee length added just the right amount of sophistication for the private dinner event. The black waistband also played its part, breaking up the super-soft colour palette effectively. (more…)

That’s Audrey Hepburn’s Granddaughter on Harper’s Bazaar

Emma Ferrer for Harper's Bazaar September 2014 cover

It seems that nepotism is making a huge comeback in fashion these days. A slew of celebrity and model siblings and offspring are capitalizing on the opportunities that come with having famous kin, and they’re really gaining some serious traction. Just ask Ireland Baldwin, Gigi Hadid or Michael Avedon, grandson of legendary photographer Richard Avedon, who lensed the campaign for Calvin Klein‘s reissue collection — shooting Lottie Moss, younger half-sister of supermodel Kate Moss

Michael has been tapped once again to shoot the famous relative of a fashion icon. Covering this month’s Harper’s Bazaar is Emma Ferrer, aka the granddaughter of Audrey Hepburn. And if you can’t see the resemblance, a quick look at her unfairly thick and impeccably-shaped eyebrows might give you a clue. Of course, Emma is dressed in pieces that scream quintessential Audrey, including a head-to-toe black ensemble made up of trousers and a turtleneck along with a colorblock black and ivory Lanvin gown, punctuated by a red rose just below the bust. Emma also poses in a black and white sculptural, checkered hat, a nod to her grandmother’s famous April 1956 cover. The 20-year-old is heralded as the magazine’s “New Funny Face,” although you’ll quickly see that there’s nothing funny about Miss Emma’s beautiful countenance. Those brows alone are no laughing matter.

Emma was born a year after Audrey died, but she still has trophies from her stylish grandmother, namely a few cashmere turtlenecks, which she adores and wears “all throughout the winter.” I can think of a million girls who would kill to have those in their closet.

Audrey was Richard Avedon’s muse, so it makes perfect sense that Bazaar chose both of their descendants to recreate some of the magic Audrey and the elder photographer had all those decades ago.

Head to Harper’s Bazaar to see more of the shoot and read Emma’s musings about her grandmother.

Lindsey Wixson’s Vogue Russia Cover Gets Compared to Harry Styles (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Russia tapped Lindsey Wixson to front its big September issue. She was photographed sporting a short, cropped, dark wig (which doesn’t do her any favors) by Alexi Lubomirski. Of course, Lindsey wears an outfit from Louis Vuitton‘s fall collection, which Vogues worldwide have taken a shine to. The cover marks the American beauty’s sixth for the Condé Nast title. Lindsey previously appeared on the cover of Vogue Japan’s August 2014 issue.

It seems as though the September covers are not satisfying our forum members and Vogue Russia is no exception. “Oh stop!!!! This is getting hilarious! Where have all the Great Sept covers gone?!!?!???!!” exclaimed Miss Dalloway.

“Is this Harry Styles from One Direction? I think the title of this thread is very wrong…” commented miguelalmeida.

Another member not feeling the wig on Lindsey was gazebo, who posted, “People, bad hair is obviously IN VOGUE. Get used to it for at least a couple of months.”

“This is awful. I like the color palette, and I’m a fan of Lindsey, but this is pitiful. The hair and the styling are atrocious. Yikes,” wrote an unhappy MyNameIs.

Russian Vogue‘s take is the weakest cover of the lot, according to justaguy: “Oh man, another really bad Vogue September cover!! I think this is the worst.”

Lindsey also graces a 15-page fashion story inside the issue, which our forum members actually admire. “The edit is amazing though! The concept’s been done to death by US Vogue, but seems fresh with Lindsey & VR,” approved Benn98.

“Beautiful edit, I almost forget the wig. Good use of the settings. The photo with the men in uniforms is great, well done,” enthused Tony Fersen.

See inside the thread for the cover story as well as a preview of the issue. Don’t forget to post your own comment, too.

Announcing the exciting news on her blog, she explained that years ago whilst still at university and fresh to the world of fashion blogging, she actually secured an internship at River Island and saw a photo of herself on the designers’ mood boards. It sounds to us like this collaboration was always meant to be. Who better to team up with than somebody whose sense of style is already influencing your designs?

Based between London and Helsinki, she’s got a strong blog following with over 50,000 followers crushing on her enviable style via Instagram. No doubt her loyal fans will be dying to snap up a piece from her River Island collaboration. 

The collaboration will include five exclusive styles of shoes, and in homage to the name of her blog, they will naturally be of the high-heel variety. The line is set to launch in November in U.K. stores and internationally online, and if you just can’t wait to find out what to expect, take a peek at Sandra’s influences and a couple of design sketches on her blog.

First Vogue and Now Marie Claire, Blake Lively Scores Yet Another Magazine Cover (Forum Buzz)

Blake Lively‘s certainly making the rounds these past few months; after landing Vogue‘s August issue, she’s now fronting the September 2014 issue of Marie Claire, celebrating the magazine’s 20th anniversary. The former Gossip Girl star was shot by Guy Aroch for the front cover as well as for a series of images inside the issue. Blake wears a dress from Gucci‘s latest collection as she’s captured up against a battleship gray backdrop with contrasting font colors. The cover should be a hit on newsstands…

…but it isn’t a hit with most of our forum members. GlamVal kicked off the thread by simply commenting, “H O R R I B L E,” which set the predominantly negative tone.

“The text, for Chrissake! So little, yet so overwhelming. Not a bad image though she looks a bit robotic. I don’t mind Blake at all, but yet another major cover so soon?” posted Benn98.

Sharing his lack of interest was honeycombchild: “Ouch. Everything about this is awful for me. Colors, text, the shot itself…”

Cosmic Voices has noticed Blake’s presence everywhere and wrote, “This love affair with covering Blake recently has GOT TO STOP!”

“What a weird and awful cover… A far cry from Blake and Guy’s beautiful cover shoot for Marie Claire UK a few years ago,” commented catalytic.

“Blake’s face looks horrible. It seems like the pose is very painful. I prefer much more her last US Vogue cover. Everything is wrong in this cover: makeup, her hair, styling, fonts and layout. And I still don’t understand why she has another cover,” disapproved narcyza.

There’s a lot of disappointment inside the thread, but are you a fan? Do you like seeing Blake on the cover of magazines? Check out her accompanying cover story and post your own opinion here.
