Daria Werbowy Stuns as the Returning Face of Salvatore Ferragamo (Forum Buzz)

After Suvi Koponen, Mariacarla Boscono and Amanda Murphy last season, Daria Werbowy now comes back for her sixth Salvatore Ferragamo advertising campaign. Photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, everyone’s favorite Ukrainian/Canadian model lounges by the poolside on location in Los Angeles sporting colorful dresses and leather accessories as she poses effortlessly for the Italian fashion house’s new Spring 2015 campaign. It’s no wonder our forum members are so full of praise!

Ad Campaign Salvatore Ferragamo Daria Werbowy


“Love it. Daria and Arthur look gorgeous. I love the setting and the colors,” complimented MyNameIs, kicking us off on a positive note inside the thread.

VersaceVixen009 replied, “I cannot agree anymore. Daria looks fabulous!”

“Oooh Daria looks stunning. This is how I prefer her. I do get a lot of Gisele vibes from her shot, don’t know why,” noted Benn98.

“She looks to die for,” declared thatsfierce, and we agree!

Although not everyone was jumping for joy. “Nice that Daria got the campaign, but it’s boring. I’m very tired that M&M shot almost [all] the ads of the brand,” commented burbuja8910, who was left a little underwhelmed with Ferragamo’s new ads.

“Enough of Daria!! Even she looks bored,” agreed zacatecas570.

“I don´t like that they went back to previous seasons’ concept… last season was a nice departure now it’s back to same old same old. Daria looks good though, not her fault that this is a snooze fest,” posted kokobombon.

No Surprise Here: Karmen Pedaru Stars in Michael Kors’ Spring 2015 Campaign (Forum Buzz)

Michael Kors sure does have his favorite campaign girls. Carmen Kass starred in the New York-based brand’s campaigns for nine consecutive seasons (and starred in many more before that). But since Spring 2011, Karmen Pedaru has been Kors’ model of choice. The usual concept of traveling luxury echoes throughout the designer’s new Spring 2015 fashion spots as the first image captures the Estonian beauty standing on a sailboat wearing a spectacular floral dress while looking out to sea — living the dream!

Are Kors’ campaigns in need of a shake-up? Our forum members sure think so. “Eeecckk, I’m not sure. I like the look, but not the image. Hopefully the others will be better. Time for MK to get some new blood,” commented Benn98, who set a fire under the discussion.

“His collections have gotten better, but his campaigns are still rubbish,” added HeatherAnne.

Also sharing the same feelings was gossiping, who expressed, “This is so overdone now .. yawn!”

“That preview looks exactly the same [as] the previous campaigns with Carmen Kass,” noted burbuja8910.

“HATE IT. Not only am I terribly bored of Karmen for MK, but the ads could literally not be any more monotone season to season. But this shot is particularly unfortunate. The hair in the face, the ugly (and ill fitting?) dress, the awkward pose. Just no,” disapproved MyNameIs, clearly unimpressed with the fashion spots this time around.

But not everyone was completely dissatisfied. “This is fantastic! Hope the rest of the campaign is just as good!” raved justaguy.

Lots of People Saw ‘The Interview’ Over the Holidays

Did you do your duty as an American patriot this holiday and watch The Interview? The comedy, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco, has been through the ringer prior to its opening, thanks to the Sony hack and North Korea throwing a fit over the film in which Rogen’s and Franco’s characters are tasked with assassinating Kim Jong-un. The film was set to premiere in theaters, canceled and then revived again after the backlash, but in the process, it’s been given up to the Internet gods for consumption — and in true American fashion, we consumed.


The film took top spots on YouTube Movies and Google Play. Xbox Video has also made the movie available and word is that Netflix is in talks with Sony to stream the movie itself. But not everyone watched the movie from the comfort of their couches. The Interview  played at 300 independent theaters when it opened on Wednesday. The movie has brought in $1 million since its Christmas Day release.

Watch: Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevingne and Irina Shayk Spread Holiday Cheer in Love’s Advent Calendar

Christmas may be over, but Love‘s advent calendar sure isn’t. In case you missed it yesterday (you know, spending time with your family, opening presents and all), the magazine released a short for Christmas Day, starring Cara Delevingne and Katie Grand’s 4EVA girlcrush, Kendall Jenner. Cara, clad in a red and white polka dot onesie and one of her famous zip-up hoodies and Jenner in all black everything, frolic and twirl through a beautiful garden before running wild through a very stately-looking home. It is Jenner’s third appearance in Love‘s advent calendar, so maybe the infinite amount of other models the magazine could have possibly used were all busy. It’s the holidays after all, people have full schedules…

Love also cooked up a non-Jenner treat for Boxing Day. The magazine tapped Irina Shayk to do a little striptease in a short directed by Doug Inglish. The leggy model playfully removes a black blouse and very tight miniskirt, revealing the thong on her plunging neck lace bodysuit. On a background of shiny silver paper, shakes her hips, seductively drops to the ground posing and kicking her feet in yet another supremely sexy entry from the British biannual. (more…)
