She’s Back! Watch the First Trailer for ‘Bridget Jones’s Baby’


Everyone’s favourite British spinster is back – and well up the duff – in the third outing of the Bridget Jones franchise.

Renée Zellweger has returned to reprise her role as the iconic 21st Century Jane Austin heroine in Bridget Jones’s Baby, which – like basically all rom-com sequels taints the perfection of the original film’s romantic plot arc by reminding us that Happily Ever Afters don’t actually happen IRL.

Nope, in our first look at the third film we see Bridget reunited with her trademark spinsterhood, All By Myseeeeeeeeelf as ever and up to her endearingly awkward and Bridgety shenanigans.

Kendall Jenner Scores an American Vogue Cover — Sort Of (Forum Buzz)

Our forums have been rife with speculation that Kendall Jenner was to front an upcoming issue of Vogue, having recently participated in a top secret shoot for a “major” American magazine. Our suspicions turned out to be false — sort of. Kendall’s big shoot turned out to be a feature for Vogue‘s Special Edition issue, which will come wrapped with the main April issue (starring Rihanna) sent out to New York and Los Angeles subscribers. Photographed by Mario Testino, the Karl Lagerfeld favorite wears Proenza Schouler on the cover (below) of the special issue, which features Kendall exclusively.

Per usual, the sight of Kendall prompted a lot of discussion on our forums. “LOL. Even America’s Next Top Model contestants pose better and more natural,” stated DutchHomme.

“Oh, hell no! I guess it was about time she got one…the outfit is really ugly though,” chimed in Scotty. (more…)

In news that will disappoint Kanye West and thrill PETA, the Armani Group has decided to cease using animal fur in its products, including pieces from Giorgio Armani, Emporio Armani, Armani Privé, AJ Armani Jeans, AX | Armani Exchange and home brand Armani Casa. The Italian fashion house released a statement announcing that all its garments will be fur-free starting with Fall 2016.

Thanks to technological advances, it’s no longer necessary to use animal fur, Giorgio Armani reveals. “Technological progress made over the years allows us to have valid alternatives at our disposition that render the use of cruel practices unnecessary as regards animals,” the designer said in a statement. “Pursuing the positive process undertaken long ago, my company is now taking a major step ahead, reflecting our attention to the critical issues of protecting and caring for the environment and animals.”

Armani joins a small but growing group of designers who have sworn off the use of fur including Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren. Hopefully, Armani’s pledge inspires change across the fashion industry.

We’re Bored by Doutzen Kroes’ Seventh Vogue Netherlands Cover (Forum Buzz)

We’re fairly used to seeing Doutzen Kroes looking picture perfect with a face full of makeup and hair styled into oblivion for the majority of her work. Vogue Netherlands serves up a different concept for the Dutch beauty this month with an effortlessly beautiful April cover, Doutzen’s seventh cover appearance for the title. Photographed by Duy Vo, the team took things outdoors on location in Nepal with Doutzen perched on some rocks wearing Michael Kors.

Members of our forums wanted something more exciting and glamorous, however. “It looks awful and I find it very boring, resembling a standard holiday snap,” critiqued DutchHomme the moment the cover came to light.

“It’s boring because Doutzen is boring and Vogue Netherlands is boring, so added together it’s the definition of boring,” chimed in anlabe32. (more…)
