Georgia May Jagger Lands Vogue Thailand’s December Cover Wearing Givenchy (Forum Buzz)

Prepare yourselves for some serious 70s-inspired fashion stories this upcoming season. Georgia May Jagger has landed the cover of Vogue Thailand’s last issue of 2014 wearing an outfit designed by Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy and looks as though she’s part of Swedish pop group ABBA in the process. Shot by Marcin Tyszka in the studio, Georgia also posed for a series of images to accompany the cover shoot, styled by Yann Weber.

Although the cover doesn’t seem to be sitting well with our forum members. “It’s a little too busy with all the text, the prints and the color of the font. I think she actually looks good here. But it’s so predictable at this point to see her come with a line ‘rock royalty.’ Can’t they come up with a new theme for her. Or this will be the only theme she can model,” ranted TaylorBinque.

“Looks very depressing. The styling looks very excessive, I cannot even see her shape,” noted Benn98.

Also not feeling it was Nymphaea, who commented, “Not good, she almost looks pregnant and not enjoying it.”

GivenchyHomme also disapproved: “I find it hard to believe that this was her best shot. She looks like she has a stomach ache.”

 

“I think it is a bit trashy…” wrote an uninterested GlamorousBoy.

“A close-up would have been better even but with another face expression LOL,” exclaimed Oxymore.

Forum member fashionlover2001 shared everyone’s sentiments and simply informed us that he’s “not feeling this cover.”

Await Georgia’s cover story inside the thread, but in the meantime, tell us what you think here.

Prepare to laugh all holiday season long and into 2015: Julia Louis-Dreyfus has been named the new face of Old Navy and her hilarious campaign is set to drop today.

The Veep actress follows fellow funny gal Amy Poehler and will star in the retailer’s commercials from now until the summer. Julia is said to have had a huge hand in conceptualizing the campaigns, two of which were directed by Roman Coppola. The first commercial depicts the actress as an overachieving holiday hostess, bent on letting everyone know just how great and can-do she is — until a few Old Navy clad guests arrive and she hears about how inexpensive those holiday duds were. Julia leaves her turpigen (a chicken inside of a pig inside of a turkey, of course) to hit the store.

Check out the hilarious spot below.

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Raised a Ton of Money for Charity

Thought a troop of beautiful, long-legged women in lingerie walking down a runway couldn’t benefit society? Oh, ye of little faith. Turns out those genetically-blessed glamazons actually did some good for humanity with reports saying that the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show raised tons of money for charity.

This year, the lingerie giant decided to put tickets for the show up for sale. At about $25,000 a pop for 200 showgoers, the event managed to raise $2.5 million. This is the first time Victoria’s Secret opened the show to regular ol’ rich folk and obviously, it was a successful move. While we don’t know for sure whether it will sell tickets for next year’s show, something tells us the brand may consider it, given how much money was raised this time around.

Margot Robbie, Cara Delevingne and Jared Leto Confirmed for Star-Studded Suicide Squad Cast

Margot Robbie has scored the role of leading lady Harley Quinn in Warner Brothers’ forthcoming DC Comics-inspired film Suicide Squad, alongside balayaged babe Jared Leto as The Joker.

Variety reports that Margot and Jared will be joined by fashion’s favourite muse Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Will Smith as Deadshot, Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg, and Australian actor Jai Courtney as (insert raised eyebrows here) Boomerang in the screenplay directed by David Ayer.

It’s a big gig for Margot, whose character Harley Quinn will be playing The Joker’s sidekick and love interest, but it’s even more major for Jared, who will be the first to play the role of The Joker since the late Heath Ledger back in 2008.

“We look forward to seeing this terrific ensemble, under David Ayer’s amazing guidance, give new meaning to what it means to be a villain and what it means to be a hero,” Warner Brothers’ president Greg Silverman said in a statement. 

We’re not sure about you, but we too are very much looking forward to seeing this star-studded cast in action. Much to our dismay, the film hasn’t even started shooting yet (it’s set to kick off next April in Toronto) and has a US release date of August 5, 2016. Mark it in your diary, because that’s one heck of a wait.

Poor Kylie Minogue Couldn’t Afford Clothes Once Upon a Time

You know Kylie Minogue? The Aussie showgirl who’s frequently spotted in high-end designs by the likes of Dolce & Gabbana, Jean Paul Gaultier and Stella McCartney? Well, apparently it wasn’t all expensive frocks and and custom-made pieces for the little pocket rocket, who admits making clothes was the best option she had when she was penniless.

When Daily Mail caught up with Kylie at the British Fashion Awards earlier this week, she was discussing her love of underground fashion before revealing information about her life before the glitz and glamour. “There are great designers on Dover Street who are making their own pieces out of bits and pieces that they find at the market,” she said. “I love them because that’s what I used to do. I would make my own clothes because I am too small and nothing ever fitted me and I had no money.”

Oh, the good old days, hey, Kylie? Now she has the pleasure of wearing clothes designed specifically to suit her dainty bod, and there’s money falling out of her ears. And if cash ever gets tight, I’m sure her designer sis could help her out with some petite pieces from her Target range.
