Rihanna is back on the cover of Vogue Magazine for the fourth time. While we’ll never tire of seeing the gorgeous pop star in couture fashions (in this case, a Tom Ford gown), you can’t help but think the fashion bible needs more black friends. At least the cover story presents something new.

The Work singer finally addresses the rumors of a rivalry with Beyoncé.

Following in her sister’s footsteps, Bella Hadid is racking up covers left, right and center.

Cara Delevingne Comes Out of Retirement to Model Chanel Eyewear (Forum Buzz)

She’s been on a brief hiatus from the world of fashion to concentrate on acting, but now Cara Delevingne returns to her roots for a high-profile advertising campaign (because who wouldn’t, right?). It should come as no surprise that Cara is, once again, fronting a campaign for Chanel. The Brit beauty starred in Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2015 campaign alongside Pharrell Williams around the same time last year. In this latest Karl Lagerfeld-shot ad, Cara showcases the iconic French fashion house’s new range of eyewear.

Members of our forums weren’t interested whatsoever. “Thought she quit modelling?” asked an unsympathetic GreyVetiver.

“I thought she retired,” mocked an uninterested Scotty, sharing the same attitude toward Cara’s comeback. (more…)
