The makeup range includes transparent pressed powder, nude, orange and fuchsia lipsticks, frosty eyeshadow, nude and coral blush and black liner and mascara. Zac Posen for MAC also offers two brushes: a kabuki and contour brush.

The matte gray packaging and gold lettering feels sleek and luxurious, an apparent nod to Zac’s “modern and timeless designs on the runway,” the press release reads. The line ranges from $18 for lipstick to $54 for the kabuki brush. (more…)

Oscar Nominee Brie Larson Is ELLE’s March Cover Girl (Forum Buzz)

Redesigns are all the rage this month with InStyle starting off the trend and now ELLE appears to have switched things up a notch, delivering a clean and minimalist cover for March 2016. The magazine welcomes Oscar nominee Brie Larson to its newly revamped edition, who looks fantastic wearing a lace dress from Givenchy before the lens of Terry Tsiolis.

The change left our forums with mixed views, however. “I think she’s a really good actress but in her print work she always looks so normal and bland IMO. This is the first time that she looks like a movie star. Still, I’m not sure I like it,” voiced an uncertain kokobombon.

“More modern? Huh!! This actually looks dated to me, like a random U.K. ELLE cover from 2005!!” critiqued Miss Dalloway. (more…)

Shailene Woodley Covers InStyle’s Newly Revamped March Issue (Forum Buzz)

Given the fact that InStyle subtly rejigged its masthead back in November 2014, we should have known a full-blown redesign of the magazine was coming this spring, complete with an entirely different layout and a host of new fonts. For InStyle‘s March 2016 Super Fashion Issue boasting 490 pages, Shailene Woodley graces the title’s front cover, shot by Thomas Whiteside. Styled by Melissa Rubini, the Divergent actress wears an intriguing dress from Delpozo as she entices us to grab a copy when the mag hits newsstands on February 12.

Unfortunately, InStyle‘s overhaul did not go down too well with our forums. “What in the world is going on with U.S. InStyle?? Awful March cover. Shailene’s cover a couple of years back was much nicer than this. I am really not liking the background colors they’re using…the white worked much better for them,” disapproved Handbag Queen.

“Wow that Shailene cover is awful. She looks sweaty and uncomfortable!” exclaimed an unimpressed SallyAlbright. (more…)

Kanye Blocked Kylie From Landing a $1 Million Puma Deal

When Kanye West married into the Kardashian family, the sisters must have signed a contract saying they can only work with Yeezy-approved brands. That’s the only way to explain the outspoken rapper’s latest rant in which he chastised Puma for approaching Kylie Jenner for an ambassador role.

Shame on them for thinking Kylie Jenner had the authority to work with any brand she chooses. Yes, she modeled for both seasons of Yeezy’s clothing line but she’s also worked with several other fashion brands from PacSun to Topshop. She even designs her own shoes. Nonetheless, Kanye sees Puma’s perfectly reasonable request as an attempt to “divide the family.” (more…)

has interviewed everyone worth their salt in the industry for its 73 Questions video series, so it makes perfect sense that they’d get personal with the mag’s February 2016 cover star, Derek Zoolander.

Considering the promo trail for this film has been saturated, understandably, we thought we’d revisit this LOL-worthy video with only days left until Zoolander 2 finally hits cinemas. ICYMI, Derek, played by Ben Stiller, treated the fashion bible to a tour of his really, really ridiculously good looking apartment, which is by no means a centre for ants.

Giving some comedic value to what is usually a serious and revealing interview, as displayed by the models, designers and actresses before him, like Victoria Beckham, Sarah Jessica Parker and Blake Lively, Derek attempts to respond to his “Who Am I” question by answering the mag’s quick fire questions the best way he knows how.

Sports Illustrated‘s Swimsuit Issue is proceeding with its new-found appreciation of body diversity, tapping plus-size model Ashley Graham as its “SI Rookie” in 2016. 

The news follows Aussie model Robyn Lawley’s inclusion in the 2015 edition, where she made history as the first plus-size model to ever grace the Swimsuit Issue’s pages. Ashley was also part of that mag, however only as part of an advertisement for swimwear label Swimsuitsforall.

Sports Illustrated
is unveiling five Swimsuit Issue “rookies” via their Swim Daily blog this week, with Barbara Palvin already announced. Snaps to SI for continuing to mix up its usual contingent of ultra-thin women. We hope this is just the beginning of what appears to be a modelling industry revolution. (more…)
