Bella Hadid Serves Up Supermodel Realness on ELLE Brazil’s February Cover (Forum Buzz)

The fashion industry has welcomed the Hadid sisters with open arms, dishing out to Gigi a healthy amount of Vogue covers and now it’s Bella‘s turn to shine. Not exactly a Vogue Italia cover like her older sister, but the 19-year-old Los Angeles native can now add a striking new cover of ELLE Brazil to her growing portfolio. The one time face of Balmain was photographed wearing Versace before the lens of Max Abadian and we’re pleasantly surprised with the captivating result.

Jessica Simpson’s retail empire continues to grow. The pop star launched activewear late last year and now she’s adding sneakers to her repertoire for Fall 2016. Her sneaker designs are just as young, trendy and feminine as her famous line of heels.

The designs blend fashion and function with lightweight mesh fabric and an EVA shock-absorbing footbed, both considered ideal for running. Available in modern neon, snakeskin and leopard prints, the prices will range from $69 to $89.

“Active has been such a huge part of my life,” the mogul told Footwear News. “To feel sexy while you work out, it’s the greatest thing I can give a woman.” As women who can’t wait to hit the treadmill in leopard print sneakers, we can’t thank her enough.

Rita Ora Flashes Her Breasts for Terry Richardson on Lui’s Abysmal February Cover (Forum Buzz)

Our forums were still pretty content flicking through their copies of Lui magazine’s sensational double holiday edition until the title dropped a bombshell by unveiling its latest issue. To kick off 2016, Lui has lost sight of fashionable, tasteful and seductive cover images and produced a cheap-looking cover for February. Following in the footsteps of Rihanna, British singer Rita Ora flashes her bare breasts for photographer Terry Richardson, leaving us with a sour taste.


Dès demain, @ritaora dans un kiosque près de chez vous… Et beaucoup d’autres surprises !

We were left speechless in the worst possible way. “OMG. Terry, Rita, boobs… could this be any tackier? NO,” exclaimed a horrified anlabe32 within seconds of the cover dropping.

“Seriously? You know better, Lui. Gross,” an unimpressed MulletProof condemned. (more…)

Watch: Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid Make Out in Steamy New Music Video

Zayn Malik created a small media firestorm when he referred to Gigi Hadid as his “good friend” in an Apple Music interview this week. His latest video certainly doesn’t help his claim. The visual for Malik’s new single “Pillow Talk” finds him gently caressing Gigi Hadid’s lips and face then launching a full make out session. That’s one way to greet your friend.

Hadid isn’t the only woman to star in the Bouha Kazmi-directed clip. Women wearing pasties spread their legs open for flowers to emerge from in between as Malik croons in the background, “Be in the bed all day, f*cking you, and fighting on.”

Of his raunchy lyrics, Malik told the Sunday Times: “[Sex is a] part of everybody’s life, a very big part of life! You don’t want to sweep it under the carpet. It has to be talked about.” Unless you’re asked about it in an interview, that is.

Catch the steamy clip above.
