Take Your Pick: Kate Moss Stars on Two Covers for UK Vogue’s December Issue (Forum Buzz)

Kate Moss and UK Vogue go together like bread and butter and now that Kate is establishing herself as contributing fashion editor for the magazine, it’s no wonder the modeling icon stars on two covers for the December 2014 issue. Photographed by Mario Testino, the issue marks Kate’s 35th British Vogue cover appearance. On the first cover (pictured below) Kate goes au naturel for the close-up cover image while on the second, the current face of My Burberry wears a face full of makeup and gives us life!

Yet our forum members are left with mixed reactions. “The second cover is really dull… too cropped and blurry to feel interesting, and Kate’s often styled that way. The first cover isn’t exactly groundbreaking either, but Kate looks incredible. Truly one of the most beautiful recent photos of her I’ve seen. When you have an iconic supermodel on the cover and she’s looking aces, simplicity works,” comments KINGofVERSAILLES.

“The first cover is sublime, though it lacks the magic of a December cover. The second cover is a mess to be quite honest. It would work for an edgier magazine but the amount of text combined with Vogue‘s penchant for pink makes it look far too jarring. It would’ve worked better with a metallic gold masthead,” writes Cosmic Voices, agreeing that the first cover outshines the second.

Honeycombchild misses the festive theme running through Vogue‘s December covers: “I prefer the first cover, the second has a great old school British Vogue feeling to it but it just doesn’t quite pull it off for me. I know we mentioned it last year, but I do really miss the days when the December issues actually looked festive.

Not everyone is so motivated by Kate’s presence. “I feel like I’ve seen these covers a million times already. They bore me to death,” disapproves anlabe32.

Melancholybaby feels the same way: “I literally said ‘not again’ out loud when I saw the thread title.”

Is Marco Zanini Leaving Schiaparelli?

Marco Zanini may already be packing his bags at Schiaparelli. According to WWD, the designer is unhappy at the relaunched couture brand, owned by Diego Della Valle, the chairman and CEO of Tod’s Group.

Della Valle hired Zanini as creative director last September. Previously, he had served as the creative director for Rochas and racked up stints at Versace, Halston and Dolce & Gabbana. The Milan-born designer presented his first couture collection in January and his first prêt-à-couture collection in July, which was sold exclusively at Schiaparelli’s Place Vendome salon. Despite solid reviews, sources at WWD are whispering that Zanini thinks the label “is not exactly his fit.” After moves at Carven, Oscar de la Renta and Nina Ricci this fall, it looks like the fashion merry-go-round isn’t slowing down any time soon.

DSquared2 Design Duo Dazzle at Matthew Morrison’s Costume Party

Clearly, Halloween isn’t just for kids anymore. Hollywood celebs get just as stoked about dressing up and adopting different personas for an evening — as if they don’t do enough of that at work! Glee star Matthew Morrison hosted his fifth annual birthday/Halloween party on October 25 at West Hollywood’s Hyde nightclub, and it was as star-studded as could be expected. Revelers included Glee co-star Chris Colfer, who dressed as Grumpy Cat, Lucy Hale as a Twitter bird plus Matthew and his new bride Renee, whom he married in an intimate ceremony in Hawaii two weeks ago, as Vincent Vega and Mia Wallace from Pulp Fiction.

In perhaps the most bizarre and beautiful display of Halloween creativity, Canadian design duo Dean and Dan Caten of DSquared2 dressed as masked, bejeweled…robots? Skeletons? Mimes? We don’t know exactly what they were, but they were undoubtedly fabulous. Their crystal-encrusted arm braces, cuffs and collars along with those to-die-for stilettos, all of which we saw on the brand’s Fall 2014 catwalk, made for a dazzling display of artistry. Paired with black nail polish on their fingers and toes, it was just what we’ve come to expect from the duo: Art, sex and subversion.

WATCH: Keira Knightly Explains Why She Hates Fairy Tales



It seems the fashion industry can’t get the F-word off their minds. We are of course, talking about feminism. From Chanel to Emma Watson, fashion folk of all stripes are proudly proclaiming their support for women’s equality and they are not holding back their opinions. Keira Knightley is the latest celeb to wax poetic about feminism, telling Net-A-Porter’s The Edit that she thinks fairy tales set a bad example for young girls. 

“A princess waiting to get rescued by some dude. I never really got into that,” she told the magazine, noting that she much prefers the Brothers Grimm version of these classic stories. “I think fairytales are a little bit frightening for some girls, because they say you have to wait for a dude to come and rescue you and I don’t think that’s a very good message.”

Hear, hear Keira! Watch the actress drop nuggets of knowledge in the video above.

J.Crew, Abercrombie & Fitch Slapped With Wage Compensation Lawsuits


Image: Getty Images

It is not a good day for two mass retailers in California, as reports of lawsuits against J.Crew and Abercrombie & Fitch are coming to light. According to The Fashion Law, an employee at one of J.Crew’s Los Angeles locations has filed suit against the company for neglecting to pay him overtime hours, and a manager at a Hollister in Northern California is taking action against Abercrombie for similar reasons.

The plaintiff, Andrew Duberry, says that not only did J.Crew fail to give him his due money, but it doesn’t properly pay other employees for meal breaks and overtime. The suit maintains that J.Crew “engaged in a uniform policy and systematic scheme of wage abuse against their hourly paid or nonexempt employees within the State of California and the policy of denying wages for off-the-clock work and missed meal breaks means that store employees were often not paid minimum wage.” Furthermore, employees cannot get their hands on their payroll documents, which would help make their payment practices clearer. These practices break the California labor code, and Duberry is looking to be compensated accordingly. (more…)
