Franca Sozzani Is Not Pleased with Milan’s 5-Day Fashion Week

It looks like Giorgio Armani isn’t the only one not feeling Milan’s five-day Fashion Week. Last season, the Italian city enjoyed (or rather, didn’t enjoy) a shorter week — five days as opposed to the usual six. Next season, thanks to Armani, it will be six again after the designer insisted on it to the Italian Fashion Chamber’s great delight.

Vogue Italia Editor-in-Chief Franca Sozzani will probably also be stoked about the extra day. The editrix sat down with WWD and the topic of Milan’s shortened schedule came up. Sozzani made clear her disapproval, saying that it is up to Italy’s fashion set to make changes, so that this never happens again.

“We lack an organization that will support fashion week. The five-day week shows a lack of vision and that we are not able to command respect,” she said. “I am not saying it’s anyone’s fault in particular, it’s our fault. We have the highest concentration of brands, how can we accommodate everyone in four or five days? In New York there are between four and six big designers, and the shows last one week. There is something wrong here. It’s our fault. We can’t stand up for it. They take our ads, don’t they? Why don’t they want to stay longer in Milan? Why do we have to comply? We have the most beautiful brands, they are Italians.”

Shade to the New York designers aside, Sozzani does have a point. It’s up to the Italians to demand a longer week, although it looks like Mr. Armani is taking the initiative on that end.

Margot Robbie’s Underwater Cover for W Magazine ‘Misses the Boat’ (Forum Buzz)

Not your average cover image for a fashion magazine but we’re just thankful to see the beautiful Margot Robbie. W Magazine tapped the Aussie actress for its annual art issue, which coincides with the December 2014 edition. Photographed by contemporary video artist Bill Viola, The Wolf of Wall Street star poses for an interesting underwater shoot wearing a Donna Karan dress.

Our forum members share their mixed reactions. “Is this a joke? The wonky left eye, the I’m-about-to-fart face… What are you doing Mr. Tonchi?” questions Flashbang.

“Oh my… what a truly dreadful image? Her facial expression! The concept is great, and underwater photography can produce some beautiful imagery (Kate Winslet in that shot by Annie for example…) but wow. I’m shocked that image was selected for a cover,” adds an underwhelmed honeycombchild.

Also not feeling the cover shot is Miss Dalloway who writes, “I get what they went from, but it makes for a horribly unappealing cover! You have such a stunning girl, with a million dollar face, and you do this to her?!! Even some shots in the spread would make for a better cover, because she is giving better face. When Tonchi misses the boat, he really misses it!”

Yet not all reviews are negative. “In my opinion it´s not a flattering image (for her) but I love it, it´s beautiful and haunting and it´s always nice to see a cover not set against a plain background. I´m happy for Margot, I don´t know much about her but she comes across like such a nice and charming person,” credits kokobombon.

SallyAlbright agrees and writes, “Oh, Margot. I just have the biggest girl crush on her, she is so funny and cool in addition to being stunning. I love the concept and I love that she finally got a big cover, but it is definitely not her best picture. Still exciting, though.”

Rob Kardashian Would Like You to Lounge in His Sweatpants

Rob Kardashian seems to be the only member of his reality TV family that’s not constantly in the public eye, but that doesn’t mean he’s not in these streets trying to make money. While he’s been busy not attending his sister’s wedding or participating in family functions, he’s been perfecting his hustle, working to expand his Arthur George sock range. And it looks like his efforts have paid off with the announcement that his line will be expanding into the loungewear sector.

Yup, Rob’s Arthur George line will now include loungewear, which will hit Macy’s stores next month — just in time for the holidays. The range will include sweatpants, oh, and adult onesies. Kris Jenner posted two teaser images from the collection to her Instagram. In one photo, a young man lounges in an empty loft wearing nothing but a pair of sneakers, socks and a black onesie decorated with white stars.  (more…)

Christie Brinkley Is Launching a Skincare Line

If there’s anything we would take Christie Brinkley’s advice on, it’s skincare. The former CoverGirl ambassador routinely puts women half her age to shame with her enviable figure and absolutely flawless skin. It would be a shame not to capitalize on such smooth skin and Christie is doing just that, launching a new skincare range that promises to give you the kind of wrinkle-free face she’s enjoying at age 60.

Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare is a vegan eight-product range, which includes an exfoliating face wash, an anti-aging day and night treatment as well as separate ones for your eyes and neck, a daily facial cleanser, a skin priming serum and a product that smooths out wrinkles. The product line will be sold through HSN and later Kohl’s with prices ranging from $22.95 to $69.95.

Christie said the SPF anti-aging element was very important to her when creating this line. The model credits that and also regular exfoliation as to why her skin looks so good — in spite of all the tanning she did back in the 80s. 

The line is expected to hit HSN come March and appear on Kohl’s shelves that same month. If it can deliver the kind of skin she’s working with now, we have a feeling it’s going to be a pretty successful range.

Miranda Kerr Goes for Gold in Elasticised Pants, Leaves Us Confused

Miranda Kerr is one confusing woman. Just when we thought we were starting to figure out her style (it’s usually monochromatic and polished, sometimes featuring a leather biker jacket or ladylike pencil skirt), she goes and pulls out this highly perplexing outfit.

The supermodel opted for a pair of elasticised high-waisted pants in gold, teamed with a classic black top underneath, which was unfortunately swallowed up by the dark-leather coat she wore over the top. The jacket, although beautiful, looked too heavy with the otherwise lightweight outfit, and Miranda could’ve saved herself some trouble by opting for a cropped throw over instead.

Her hair was spot on but, keeping with the heavy theme, her makeup was more overdone than usual, which is odd considering she’s recently advised against putting too much makeup on. (more…)
