Vogue Korea and Lara Stone Take a Risk With an Unconventional Cover for March (Forum Buzz)

The Korean fashion monthlies are certainly bringing out the big guns for March with W Korea tapping none other than Kendall Jenner and now Lara Stone is fronting Vogue Korea. As usual, the magazine wasn’t afraid to think outside the box, opting to give us an unconventional cover image this month with Lara pictured on her knees in Louis Vuitton as she poses in what we assume is a makeshift living room. Photographed by Emma Tempest with Ye Young Kim on styling duties, our forum members couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome.

“Oh this is stunning! I love how Vogue Korea always uses the unconventional cover shots and somehow make it work. I like this. And the layout is pretty good too!” admitted MON the moment the cover surfaced.

“Very different and very good!” noted DutchHomme, sharing the same positive attitude. (more…)

Lily Aldridge Wears Nothing But Boots and Fur on Lui’s March 2016 Cover (Forum Buzz)

Our forums certainly didn’t hold back last month after Lui magazine unveiled a rather tacky cover featuring Rita Ora flashing her bare breasts for Terry Richardson. But the racy French publication appears to redeem itself with its March 2016 offering. The title tapped Lily Aldridge to make her debut on the cover wearing nothing but a striking mohair coat and a pair of knee-high boots before the lens of photographer David Bellemere. Lily is slowly but surely gaining momentum in the fashion industry, currently starring in ads for Stuart Weitzman and she was recently a cover girl for Vogue Spain.

Lui‘s choice this month left our forum members divided. “Will never get this girl’s appeal. She’s got such a harsh face. Just as well there are so many distractions on this cover,” pointed out a disapproving Benn98

“This looks awfully generic, Lui has had better covers. I don’t know why they do them anymore. Also Lily doesn’t excite me, she isn’t really sexy to me,” inputted KateTheGreatest. (more…)

This Extreme Haircut Video Is BANANAS

haircut

Whether we’re chopping it all off or just getting a trim, there’s always some anxiety when we sit in a hair stylist’s chair. After all, we’re trusting them not to go all Edward Scissorhands on us. Which is why, in this new viral video from Barbershapp, we can’t even imagine the level of faith this model has in her stylist.

The hair stylist appears to free-form an intricate cut into the model’s pin-straight hair and begins by cutting the top layer into a one-inch halo. The resulting look, which features choppy, uneven layers that spiral around the crown of her head combined with longer teased-out pieces underneath, can only be described as bonkers.  (more…)

Twilight fans rejoice: Edward Cullen is starring in the new Karl Lagerfeld-shot Dior Homme Autumn 2016 ad campaign. 

We know, of course, that Edward is fictional and that Robert Pattinson has a life and career beyond starring in the five Twilight movies, but there is no way to look at his smoldering sidelong gaze without envisioning his role as the sparkling, brooding vampire. 

This isn’t Pattinson’s first foray into modeling for the famed French design house. He has appeared as the face of Dior Homme fragrance since 2012. Sidney Toledano, chief executive officer of Christian Dior Couture, tells WWD, “He was already the face of the Dior Homme Fragrance and he was thrilled to be also the face for fashion. When we told him that Karl Lagerfeld was going to shoot the campaign, Robert was even more enthusiastic and indeed, the campaign is perfectly reflecting the spirit of Dior Homme.”

Edward: we have always loved you and will always love you. The ads will appear in magazines beginning April 1.

Gigi Hadid Embodies Carine Roitfeld’s ‘Americana’ on CR Fashion Book’s New Cover (Forum Buzz)

CR Fashion Book has been teasing us for weeks via social media about its upcoming Americana edition. Carine Roitfeld‘s namesake fashion bible is never short of a few headlines with the likes of Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé and Lady Gaga serving as past cover subjects, so expectations were high. The magazine has finally unveiled its eighth edition featuring four different cover stars: Gigi Hadid, Staz Lindes, Kayla Scott and Bentley Mescall, each embodying Roitfeld’s interpretation of true American beauty.

Roitfeld’s choices left our forum members with a few questions, however. “I expected something better with MAJOR American supermodels aka Cindy Crawford, Christie Brinkley & Christy Turlington,” declared a disapproving DutchHomme.

“Who still buys this magazine? It’s like LOVE but depressingly irrelevant and even more obnoxious,” stated an equally unimpressed Marc10. (more…)
