Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss Recreate Their 1996 Breast Cancer Campaign


Two decades after Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss posed for a Fashion Targets Breast Cancer campaign in 1996, the pair have teamed up to recreate and celebrate the campaign.

Shot by photography legend Patrick Demarchelier, the original campaign was organised by Ralph Lauren in order to raise funds for research into breast cancer. In the shoot, Campbell and Moss posed in back and white, in separate shots.

Now the two legendary models have again teamed up, this time in matching black jeans and white tops, with Mario Testino acting as photographer.

When it comes to fashion, Rihanna can do no wrong. Case in point: The R&B singer’s third footwear design for her Fenty x Puma line, a pair of furry slides that will be inhabiting our thoughts and dreams until their April 22 release date.

#THEFURSLIDE, an update of Puma’s classic Leadcat silhouette, is sure to join the ranks of its recurrently sold-out predecessors, the punk-meets-hip-hop gum-soled platform creeper and the bold-tongued, high performance trainer, for those who sweat with style. (more…)

You May Soon Be Able to Afford That Prada Bag You’ve Always Dreamed Of

Prada Handbag Runway Fall 2016

If the devil wears Prada, apparently he (or she) hasn’t been doing much shopping lately. The Milan-based company is reporting its lowest profits in five years and has plans to uproot its withered laurels and cater a bit more to the modern consumer.

The atelier has been something of the cantankerous grandparent of the fashion world. Yes, the shifting global economy and terrorist threats in Europe have left many sanctified luxury brands hurting, however Prada is suffering more than most due to its minimal online presence and exorbitant handbag prices, even by luxury standards. (Almost $1,000 for nylon? Please stop.)

In the struggling luxury world, “one of the fastest-growing segments is customers [who] are entering the market,” explains Mario Ortelli, senior luxury goods analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein. “They’re buying their first handbags…so they are looking for something with a price that is not so high.” Hence the appearance of petite Fendi Peekaboos, baby Birkins and other smaller, ever-so-slightly less expensive versions of iconic bags, which are still more commonly spied on Kylie Jenner’s Instagram than our morning commutes to work.

Not Even Karlie Kloss Can Save This Hideous Outfit on Vogue Russia (Forum Buzz)

Karlie Kloss must be newsstand gold right about now, having recently starred on both the British and Brazilian editions of ELLE. She now makes a return to the front of Vogue Russia, giving us a rare full-length cover shot. Lensed by Mariano Vivanco, the statuesque beauty tries her hardest to make a rather hideous Maison Margiela Haute Couture creation work.

Poor Karlie didn’t stand a chance. “That horrendous dress ruins the whole cover…” announced burbuja8910 straight away.

“I have so many questions. Is that a high fashion parachute? What’s with the kitschy boots paired with a power blazer? Why isn’t Karlie making any eye contact?” questioned a horrified Benn98. (more…)

Kylie Jenner Takes to Snapchat to Co-sign Caitlyn Jenner’s New MAC Lipstick

Kylie Jenner may have ticked off the black community with her latest Marie Claire interview in which she claims she “started wigs, and now everyone is wearing wigs,” eliciting cries of cultural appropriation (rightly so), but the cosmetics queen knows how to use her Kardashian klout to promote awareness —and squash controversy. Exhibit A: The reality star took to Twitter to seemingly address the uproar, writing, “When publications switch up your words for hype…Damn.” We assume the implication is that Ky was referring to the spread of the wig trend within her own clan. Exhibit B: On Sunday, the product promotion aficionado used her much-followed Snapchat to plug Caitlyn Jenner’s new MAC lipstick, Finally Free.

The video, though not anywhere near as suggestive and stylized as Kylie’s own BBHMM-inspired would-be lip gloss ad, sends a much more effective message. It features a cameo by Caitlyn (whom Kylie refers to as “my dad”), who has ostensibly stopped by her youngest daughter’s pad to gift her with the exclusive shade. (more…)

Romee Strijd Finally Lands Her First Solo Vogue Netherlands Cover (Forum Buzz)

We’re surprised that model Romee Strijd hasn’t already landed a solo cover of Vogue Netherlands, but we guess it’s better late than never as the title finally hands the Dutch beauty the May 2016 cover. Following in the footsteps of Doutzen Kroes last month, the current face of Carolina Herrera looks breathtaking in the Quentin de Briey-shot image. In the understated and effortless pic, Romee photographs beautifully wearing a pink sheer and ruffled Gucci blouse, working the no-makeup makeup look and a fabulously unkempt hairstyle.

But the cover left the majority of our forum members disappointed. “It’s pretty, I’m really in the mood for this, what a gorgeous cover,” raved Miss Dalloway straight away, setting us off on a high note.

“It’s a gorgeous shot, however the orange ruins it for me! Ugh,” disapproved MON as negative comments started to flood in. (more…)
