We know what you’re thinking: another day, another Kendall and Kylie clothing launch. We’re no strangers to their PacSun T-shirts or Topshop collections that seem to debut every other month, but their latest offering may warrant a second look. Kendall + Kylie partnered with Neiman Marcus on a collection of nine pieces, #OnlyatNM. And it’s surprisingly pretty awesome.

The design aesthetic is decidedly elegant with structured dresses, sharp jumpsuits and expertly-draped silk skirts. The fabrics are just as upscale: think Italian leather, Chinese hammered silks and Turkish jacquard. Kendall stressed the sophistication of the new line in a press release, saying, “[It] is sophisticated, clean and beautifully tailored. We incorporated a lot of sophisticated and versatile pieces that were simple yet chic.” (more…)

Kylie Jenner Sports a Bigger-Than-Ever Pout on Paper Magazine’s April Cover (Forum Buzz)

The Kardashian-Jenners certainly aren’t strangers to the cover of Paper magazine, with Kim herself breaking the Internet back in 2014 thanks to that now infamous Jean-Paul Goude shot. Fast-forward to April 2016 and it’s now Kylie‘s turn to steal the show. Paper isn’t shy about mocking pop culture, having produced some questionable covers with the likes of Paris Hilton and Miley Cyrus in the past. This time around, the mag parodies Kylie Jenner’s ever-changing looks with an obviously enhanced cover shot where the reality TV star-turned-beauty mogul sports much larger eyes and a bigger-than-ever pout.

Our forum members certainly didn’t hold back. “Why even use Kylie when you can make this 100% by computer. Ugly,” declared Nymphaea the second the cover image appeared. 

“How could anyone approve this? This is horrible! This is not youthful at all, Kylie looks like she’s 35 and like she’s going to melt… The tackiness is the layout, did they really make an Instagram post as a cover?” asked a horrified Aizanara. (more…)

Behati Prinsloo’s Arm Goes Missing on Vogue Thailand’s April Cover (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Thailand is slowly getting more recognition with each passing issue. The publication kicked off 2016 with a Chrissy Teigen cover, managing to impress the majority of our opinionated forum members. But with its latest offering, the magazine takes one giant step backward with a very suspect and awkward cover for April 2016. The magazine captures mother-to-be Behati Prinsloo playfully posing at the beach before the lens of Russell James. But something — like her right arm — seems to be missing.

Vogue28 picked up on the awkward pose immediately, saying, “And where is Behati’s right arm?” While marsnoop2 simply declared, “Next!”

“Everything is too much and this colorful font. NO,” added a horrified narcyza. (more…)

The democratization of fashion isn’t just about race, gender identity and size. It also extends to models with developmental disabilities. Katie Meade is the first model with Down syndrome to be the face of a haircare brand. The 32-year-old stunner fronts the latest campaign for Beauty & Pin-Ups, promoting its Fearless Hair Rescue Treatment.

Beauty & Pinups CEO, Kenny Kahn, booked Meade through Best Buddies, a non-profit founded to find employment for people with disabilities. “The Beauty & Pin-Ups brand is a celebration of the empowerment of a woman and what it took to be a pin-up in 1935, and carrying that message in a modern sense,” Kahn said. “So as we were launching this product, in our mind it could have been the next traditional pin-up — but as soon as we came up with the name ‘Fearless’ it was really easy, we were like, ‘Well Katie’s fearless.'” (more…)

Kate Moss’ 37th Cover of UK Vogue Is Just More of the Same (Forum Buzz)

She hasn’t been on the cover since December 2014 (which is an eternity, considering) but now Kate Moss is finally back where she belongs on the cover of British Vogue. Marking her 37th cover appearance on the Condé Nast title, Kate’s relationship with the magazine is unsurpassed. In true rock ‘n’ roll fashion, Kate wears clothes belonging to legendary rocker Mick Jagger throughout the cover shoot, while on the cover (below) the supermodel wears a rhinestone Rolling Stones T-shirt underneath a black velvet bolero jacket. But even photographed by Craig McDean, Kate’s presence just simply wasn’t enough to satisfy our forum members.

“It amazes me that they always find something to write about Kate Moss,” complained an underwhelmed WilliamsLe010919 the moment the cover dropped.

TaylorBinque wasn’t exactly jumping up and down either: “Kate Moss on Vogue U.K.’s cover, groundbreaking! At least they can push it a bit. It’s like they are not even trying.” (more…)
