Karl Lagerfeld can barely contain his love for Kristen Stewart. He already cast her as Coco Chanel in his recent short film, revealing that he conceived the 11-minute movie with her in mind. Add to that countless fashion campaigns, front row seats and even a stint walking the Chanel runway, and Karl might as well adopt the former Twilight star into his family.

Instead, he has a new role for his beloved Stewart. She’s the face of Chanel’s makeup campaign, Collection Eyes 2016. Shot by Mario Testino, the black and white ads will debut in March of this year. According to Chanel, Stewart will “incarnate the different facets of a contemporary woman” in the ads with sultry poses and her permanent scowl.” We’re sure Karl Lagerfeld will be pleased.

Karlie Kloss’ New Diane von Furstenberg Campaign Is Giving Us a Headache (Forum Buzz)

We’re pretty aware of the fact that brands tend to stick to what they know when it comes to the casting of advertising campaigns. Daria Werbowy was Diane von Furstenberg‘s campaign girl of choice for a number of seasons until Karlie Kloss claimed the throne last season and remains DVF’s choice for Spring 2016. Drowning in a sea of colorful patterns, the model-turned-tech entrepreneur looks flawless wearing DVF’s print-heavy collection.

Although, the images proved just a little too much for our forum members. “Yikes, looks a lot like Aldo! Very mediocre. So while Tory Burch is upping the standards of her campaign and logo, Diane seems to be downgrading? The colourful styling helps a lot, but Karlie looked much better last season,” admitted an underwhelmed Benn98.

In agreement over how “cheap” the campaign looked was narcyza, replying, “Oh please, it reminds me of Pinko ads! Too much of… everything!” (more…)

Watch: The Victoria’s Secret Angels Are Surprisingly Good at Playing Football

Here’s another reason to care about the Super Bowl (besides Beyonce performing at halftime and these gorgeous CFDA designer footballs): the Victoria’s Secret Angels. No, they’re not appearing in a commercial this year but they are celebrating the annual game by suiting up and hitting the football field with perfectly made-up faces.

Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Jasmine Tookes, Elsa Hosk, Taylor Hill and more make up the Angels team and, naturally, the opposing team is called the Devils. One look at their adorable touchdown dance and you’ll love this game way more than the Carolina Panthers vs. the Denver Broncos. Trust us on this.

Watch the Victoria’s Secret Angels “score more” in the clip above.

Gwyneth Paltrow ‘Photographs Like a Dream’ for Glamour’s March Cover (Forum Buzz)

Our forums have become notorious for ranting about magazines conjuring up the same old recycled cover subjects issue after issue and now for March 2016, Glamour adds fuel to the fire by tapping overexposed actress Gwyneth Paltrow. The American title had been doing just fine, having just served up a radiant Jennifer Lawrence last month. Now moving swiftly on to its big spring fashion issue, Gwyneth was shot by photographer Steven Pan under natural sunlight and looks pretty happy wearing a floral Calvin Klein dress.

Surprisingly, our forum members were pretty happy with the cover. “She looks happy and radiant and natural. I don’t love the dress itself, but I do think it works with the natural/carefree styling. The formatting’s pretty good, too. Marie Claire and Allure should take notes,” admired KINGofVERSAILLES.

“Very fresh cover, agree that the dress is somewhat mature but the smile and layout still look nice,” responded Urban Stylin. (more…)

British Fashion Brand Forces Models To Eat In Their Presence

Fashion authorities across the globe are working to combat excessive thinness in the modeling industry. The French government recently put legislation in place that bans models with a Body Mass Index (BMI) less than 18. While France requires that models produce a medical certificate, British fashion brand Rose and Williard is taking a more drastic approach. The label is forcing models to eat while authorities watch.

Rose and Willard added the non-negotiable clause to model contracts to try and thwart unhealthy eating practices. It’s an extreme measure that Rose and Willard founder Heidy Rehman only considered after witnessing models act “delirious” and talk “gibberish” due to hunger. But does the clause take things too far?
