The 26-year-old opted for The Desired Cocktail Midi Dress ($420), featuring Shona Joy’s exclusively designed lace with sheer panels, plus a plunging neckline and spaghetti straps, taking the piece’s sex appeal right off the richter scale.

She styled the LBD safely with black pointed-toe heels and a sizeable envelope clutch, as well as fine-gold and diamond rings and jagged drop earrings. The actress brought it all together with side-swept waves, dark eyelids and navy-blue nail polish, bringing an understated elegance to an otherwise seductive look.

Gisele Bündchen Takes Off Her Top for Stuart Weitzman

Stuart Weitzman’s tapped Gisele Bündchen yet again to front its Spring 2015 campaign and as expected, the results are stunning. The model poses topless for the label, pictured sitting down in a pair of trousers and strappy sandals, hugging her knees to her chest to cover her lady parts.


It seems Ms. Gisele simply can’t keep her top on when it comes to Stuart Weitzman! Last time around, she eschewed both a shirt and pants (though never both at the same time) for the campaign images, so it is only appropriate that she would ditch the blouse this time around. And when you’re sporting such fabulous shoes, is there really any need to be completely clothed? No. the answer is no. The campaign, shot by Mario Testino, is in black and white, but is no less hauntingly gorgeous. 

Is this campaign more beautiful than the last? It’s hard to tell. But one thing’s for sure: Ms. Bündchen is stunning, even in pants that don’t fit her.

Which are the most popular beauty brands on social media? WWD has a list of all the top companies that folks have been talking about on the Internet. MAC took the top spot for “earned media value” at $110,576,016. This comes as little surprise as the brand puts out numerous collections per year, giving us all something to talk about. Apparently, much of the buzz came as a result of its collaboration with Rihanna.

NARS and Maybelline followed at $71,485,358 and $62,814,416 respectively. L’Oréal, Urban Decay, Too Faced, Revlon and Rimmel London rounded out the top 10, and Smashbox and Estée Lauder finished in the 19th and 20th spots. We have a feeling Estée Lauder could be in for a jump on social media mentions, now that it has named Kendall Jenner as a brand ambassador. If anything can get folks talking on social media, it’s the Kardashian-Jenner clan. 

Indie labels got some love, too. Hourglass, Anastasia Beverly Hills, BECCA, Charlotte Tilbury and Julep were the top five most talked about, so keep your cat-eyes on them in 2015.

Shu Qi’s Vogue China Cover Stirs a Ton of Debate (Forum Buzz)

Vogue China’s January cover surfaced on our forums a few days ago and forum members are currently voicing their opinions inside the thread. Shu Qi was tapped by the magazine to star on its January 2015 cover and was captured by Chinese photographer Chen Man in Paris. The Transporter actress posed underneath the cloudy gray skies of the French capital wearing an elegant outfit from Ralph Lauren. But the real question is: Are our forum members impressed?

“Stunning pose and glorious colors. A very appropriate shot to kick off the year. But I must say, the dress looks so cheap! It’s the material I guess,” commented Benn98, uncertain about the Ralph Lauren dress Shu wears.

“Halter tops always look cheap IMO but I do like the cover,” replied A.D.C.

GlamorousBoy made it clear that he’s not an admirer of the dress by writing, “That dress looks soooo cheap!”

The rest of us, however, approve of Vogue China’s efforts this month. “This is bloody amazing. It could be a little less purple, but still wonderful!” enthused VogueDisciple93.

“This is gorgeous, it definitely catches my attention,” shared an enthusiastic KateTheGreatest.

“I love this cover, she looks beautiful OMG, sooo soft yet strong commanding pose, pastel colors, great sexy pose yet sultry, very great shot and cover worthy,” raved a more than satisfied Bertrando3.

Also full of praise was Miss Dalloway: “Stunning cover. Chen Man always shoots beautiful covers for them.”

Take a peek inside the thread for Shu’s cover story and join the discussion for yourself here.

Watch: Beyoncé Celebrates One-Year Anniversary of Her Album with a Video Manifesto


To celebrate the one-year anniversary of the release of her self-titled visual album, Beyoncé just released a video essay of sorts, Yours and Mine, a reflection of her life so far. In the over 11-minute feature, she talks about being famous, marriage, friendship, family and feminism, admitting that while she is pro-woman, she also feels for men and the pressures they have to deal with in society.

Granted, this seems like another way to promote her album, for which she just released a platinum version, but the world is always willing to gobble up anything Beyoncé puts out. Watch the entire thing above.
