ELLE’s 5 Covers for Its Annual Women in TV Issue Receive Rave Reviews (Forum Buzz)

ELLE did a fabulous job with Rooney Mara last month as our forums showed the cover a ton of praise. The magazine appears to continue its mini wave of success with the February issue after unveiling five covers featuring five of TV’s hottest stars. For ELLE‘s annual Women in TV Issue, the title photographed Priyanka Chopra, Viola Davis, Olivia Wilde and Julia Louis-Dreyfus along with Golden Globe winner Taraji P. Henson.

One cover in particular seemed to reign supreme. “Priyanka’s giving me sexy and deranged all at once but I love it. She’s like the sexiest person in the insane asylum waking up in the morning,” said A.D.C.

“Stunning. She looks like she’s about to lose her mind but still manages to look so damn good!” MON shared in agreement. (more…)

Critics famously panned Kanye West’s fashion line (Cathy Horyn even said it proves “[Kanye] can’t be taken seriously as a designer”) but at least one fashion insider is a fan of Yeezy: Carine Roitfeld. The former French Vogue editor dressed 20 models in Yeezy Season 2 for CR Fashion Book.

Three separate volumes of CR Fashion Book will hit newsstands on February 25: CR Fashion Book issue 8, CR Men’s Book issue 2 and CR GIRLS 2016. The third volume, CR GIRLS 2016, will star 20 American models “of the moment.” Roitfeld has yet to reveal which models will be featured but we do know they’ll be photographed by Sante D’Orazio. Models will don Gianvito Rossi shoes to complement their Yeezy duds.

“For me, no model was more iconic than Christie Brinkley with her white teeth and blonde hair, and her image was so compelling that it set a new beauty standard,” Roitfeld told WWD. “Now suddenly in 2016, we see the comeback of the American girl, and I find myself so excited by this new generation of stars.”

Who wants to bet that Kendall makes an appearance, dressed in one of her brother-in-law’s hole-filled sweatshirts? Pick up all three volumes of CR Fashion Book when they hit newsstands.

Where’s the Fashion on Jessica Alba’s First-Ever Vogue Cover? (Forum Buzz)

Unless you’ve been living under a rock lately, you know that Vogue Australia has been killing it with its covers as of late. We welcomed Gemma Ward with open arms last month and now Aussie Vogue surprises us in the best way possible by tapping Jessica Alba (her first ever Vogue cover, BTW) for its February edition. Shot by legendary photographer Patrick Demarchelier, the actress turned entrepreneur stuns in an effortless and simple Calvin Klein dress styled by Natasha Royt.

The cover left our forums divided. “Saw the title, and came in ready to complain, but wow this is stunning! Less really is more sometimes,” admitted JesseDillon, pleasantly surprised by the outcome.

“I was ready to shred it to pieces but…wow this is gorgeous,” agreed MON. (more…)

Michelle Obama’s State of the Union Dress Sold Out Immediately

If you tweeted using the State of the Union hashtag last night, you may have found yourself in the midst of a heated debate. The impassioned dispute wasn’t about foreign policy or climate change (though we’re sure those conversations were happening somewhere). Instead, people were speculating about the color of the First Lady’s dress.

Was it mango? Marigold? A new color invented specifically for Michelle Obama to brighten up the room…and our lives? Team Marigold ultimately had the last laugh when Narciso Rodriguez sent out a press release describing the dress as “marigold wool crepe.”

Before the State of the Union address ended, Mrs. Obama’s $2,095 dress, on sale for $628 at Neiman Marcus, had sold out everywhere. The First Lady also wore Narciso Rodriguez on election night in 2008. Talk about going out in style.

The world is still reeling after the death of beloved rock and roll legend David Bowie at the age of 69. One of the most influential musicians of our time, Bowie had an indelible impact on fashion, inspiring everyone from Gaultier to Gaga. In the wake of his passing after a private 18-month battle with cancer, the fashion industry is paying homage. Supermodel Kate Moss wore a T-shirt with his face emblazoned on the front and several designers including Paul Smith shared their condolences on social media. One of the most poignant tributes to Bowie took place on the Burberry runway.

The icon’s greatest hits, including “Changes,” played as guests entered Kensington Gardens for Burberry’s Men’s Fall 2016 show. Even the makeup paid tribute. Burberry makeup artist Wendy Rowe added a burst of Ziggy-inspired stardust under the models’ eyes as a nod to Bowie’s glamorous aesthetic. It looked as if they were crying tears of glitter. (more…)

The Spring 2016 advertising campaigns have been pretty underwhelming so far, but Equipment‘s brand new campaign has received a boatload of love from our forums. Long-term face of the brand Daria Werbowy returns, but with a unique twist. The French brand handed all creative responsibility to the Canadian/Ukrainian beauty as she joins Kate Moss in the raw black and white images. Daria photographed an effortless Kate, captured with wet hair and no makeup as the pair playfully shot the campaign on the idyllic island of Mustique.
