Vogue Spain’s January Cover with Sigrid Agren ‘Couldn’t Get Any Cheaper’ (Forum Buzz)

In with the new and out with the old? Vogue Spain kicks off 2015 by tapping some fresh talent for its new January cover. The magazine enlisted Cuneyt Akeroglu to photograph Sigrid Agren for the first issue of the upcoming year. The Turkish photographer, who often creates covers for Turkish Vogue, shot Sigrid for the magazine’s latest installment against a vivid red background wearing a jumper and pants, while clutching a handbag. Sigrid herself hasn’t starred on Spanish Vogue‘s cover before, so we applaud the monthly glossy for delivering something different this time around.

Are our forum members impressed? “It couldn’t get any cheaper….OMFG,” exclaimed bbofbalenciaga.

“The background has a strong contrast while Sigrid herself (quality wise) looks dull. Very campaign looking. The layout is horrid,” added MON, clearly unimpressed by Vogue Spain’s efforts this month.

A.D.C. agreed: “It doesn’t look like Vogue Spain. Good for them for trying something different but this really is a downgrade for them. Looks like the cover to one of the cheaper Vogues.”

“Oh, why?” cried narcyza, who went on to write, “Sigrid is [a] beautiful girl. This cover it’s just ugly!”

Creative certainly wasn’t feeling it: “Are they serious? Is this for real? It really doesn’t get any cheaper than this. What a vulgar and out of fashion cover. It’s so bad it hurts my eyes. Who thought it was a good idea? Yolanda Sacristán, leave Vogue Spain alone. OMG, this is a new low.”

But not everyone had a negative point of view. “It’s one of those covers that you either love, or hate! But I think they tried something different, and it works,” posted Miss Dalloway.

“I’m glad to see something a bit different from them, to be honest,” blueorchid noted in agreement.

WATCH: Kendall Jenner’s Dazed Cover Shoot Gets Turned Into a Video

Kendall Jenner gets to werque in a new fashion film by Dazed magazine. The spot, which is just a little over a minute, is inspired by Andy Warhol’s screen tests and shows the model as she poses in a series of looks from her Dazed spread.

The reality star-cum-bonafide model takes on a few different characters, all of which we finally see come to life in motion with this new video short. We see Jenner sometimes blinking vacantly into the camera, wide-eyed holding a lamp, other times casting a smoldering glance from behind a floral-festooned veil. It’s a chance to see Kendall in action and a firsthand look at her modeling chops while she’s in front of the camera.

Jenner is featured on the cover of Dazed‘s current issue, heralding her presence as “changing the face of fashion.” She sits at the top of its “Dazed 100” list.

Watch Ms. Jenner pose and preen in the video above.

Rihanna’s about to have a busy 2015 now that she’s got a new gig lined up with Puma. The songstress has been named the athletic brand’s new creative director for womenswear and global brand ambassador. RiRi will be involved with both creating new styles and updating popular mainstays. She will also appear in Puma’s fall campaign.

According to WWD, the partnership will extend over a number of years, so you can expect to see a lot of Rihanna x Puma in the future. 

Rihanna’s been on social media promoting her new partnership with the brand in true RiRi form with a set of glamorous Instagram photos and a Puma hashtag. She also posted a shoe selfie snap of her crisp white Puma creepers with thick, black soles. If we could make any guesses, we’d wager that this collection will probably have a lot of crop tops, a fair share of cool jogging pants and more than a few pairs of fresh kicks.

This isn’t Rihanna’s first time designing. She previously teamed up for a multi-season collaboration with River Island. We’re interested to see what she comes up with for Puma. Fly athletic gear seems to be right up the singer’s alley.

Marc Jacobs Gets Kendall Jenner and Others to Pose for Spring 2015 Ad Campaign (Forum Buzz)

The Spring 2015 advertising campaigns are beginning to roll out thick and fast. Marc Jacobs’ brand new campaign is the latest to surface via WWD and our forum members are currently digesting the images. David Sims returns to lens the campaign this season, a job he has held since Spring 2014. Anja Rubik appears in the first images released, with models Kendall Jenner, Karlie Kloss, Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls, Natasha Poly, Anna Ewers, Aya Jones and Jessica Stam set to join the cast, each landing an individual double-page shot from the Katie Grand-styled campaign.

“I’m loving the change from Juergen Teller to David Sims. Can’t wait to see the rest of the shots!” enthuses valliaddict, kicking us off on a positive note.

Cosmic Voices also appears to be a fan and simply writes, “Lovely so far.” Are we on to a winner?

“Yeah, Anja for Marc Jacobs! So happy for her,” adds cul8tr motivated by the fact that Anja’s landed her first-ever MJ campaign.

Wolkfolk shares his sentiments with us: “Amazing cast apart from Kendall but I actually don’t mind if her ads turn out as good as Anja’s. Sims is a great choice, I love the mood of the ads and the clothes are perfectly showcased. I’m also super happy for Aya Jones…”

Anlabe32 comments, “Jessica Stam is all I’m interested in. This image looks fine though, nothing special. I disliked Teller because his ads didn’t look like ads but I must say the work from Sims so far is too boring for Marc Jacobs. SICK of Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls and Kendall Jenner.”

However, vivaglam thinks the opposite: “Can’t wait to see Adriana!”

“Swallowing the fact that Kendall’s going to be in this campaign because I’m just so happy to see my girls Natasha, Anna and Jessica Stam! (I also remember Katie Grand is styling this, who is gaga over Kendall so that has something to do with it). This will be very interesting to see though!” adds VersaceVixen09

Whose shot can’t you wait to see? Await the rest of the campaign and join the discussion inside the thread here.

You can always count on Naomi Campbell to bring a campaign to flawless heights and the model continues that tradition for Agent Provocateur’s spring campaign. The luxury lingerie brand tapped the supermodel and Ellen von Unwerth to serve a sexy campaign inspired by girl gangs, the 1984 thriller Body Double and the 1997 flick Lost Highway. The results? Well, they’re pretty fantastic.

A 44-year-old Naomi looks every bit as strong and sexy as she did in the 90s in a series of poses, many of which include a shovel. We’re not sure what she could be digging up in those sky-high stilettos, but whatever it is, it’s probably both fierce and fabulous. “It’s great to be the face of Agent Provocateur’s Spring Summer 2015 Campaign, especially in my forties!” Naomi says in a press release. “Agent Provocateur proves that beautiful lingerie applies to, and is appreciated by, women of all ages.”

Armed with several garter belts and more than a few pairs of thigh-high stockings, Naomi reminds everyone how she got the title “supermodel” in this latest campaign.

Rebel Wilson Shines in Asos at the Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb UK Premiere

Rebel Wilson’s sparkly frock for the Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb premiere in London is testament to why we love this girl so much. Not only did she twinkle, glisten and dazzle in the sequinned number like the rebel (excuse the pun) she is, but she also repped a $68 Asos design and showed girls everywhere how phenom you can look despite cash flow.

The 28-year-old picked the piece from Asos’ Curve collection, featuring a black V-Neck upper half which created the illusion of a top-and-skirt combo. Although the sequin-covered skirt was a daring choice, the midi length kept it red carpet-appropriate rather than too disco diva. The Australian actress and comedian also toned things down with black pointed-toe heels and simple diamond studs, plus soft blonde curls and minimal makeup.

If you love how Rebel looks, then you’re in luck. The piece is still available from Asos’ online store, but we have a feeling that won’t last.
