New Charitable E-Tailer Beautykind Launching Monday



Being a beauty junkie is about to become an even better feel-good activity. New prestige beauty website Beautykind is set to launch Monday to help spread some good karma around, just in time for some pre-holiday shopping. Founders Hil Davis and Gina Kohler are giving consumers the chance to donate five percent of every purchase to a cause of their choice — and if the cause is not listed, they can let the website know and Beautykind will do its best to make sure it happens.

“It’s the power of aggregation, from $5 to $10 at a time, that really makes this powerful,” said Davis in a statement to WWD. “We’ll have 10,000 causes at first, but within the next three months, we’ll have over 1.1 million.”

The company, which has adopted a similar philanthropic philosophy to fashion brands Warby Parker and Toms, will carry 50 to 60 brands, including GlamGlow, Nest Fragrances and Erno Lazlo. The guilt-free shopping experience will be a way to not only look good, but do good and feel good. Good all around.

Steven Meisel Brings the Holiday Spirit Earlier than Expected to Vogue Italia’s November Cover (Forum Buzz)

Eek! In the Cover Rumor Thread we had our hearts set on Gemma Ward fronting the next issue of Vogue Italia. Oh well, I guess we can’t complain about another appearance from Carolyn Murphy, who always delivers the goods. Vogue Italia‘s November cover surfaced earlier today and it stars the American model photographed by Steven Meisel. Murphy poses wearing Miu Miu with her hand on her head, suggesting she’s had enough of the holiday spirit — already!

Wolkfolk kicked off the discussion to a good start and wrote, “Completely unexpected to see Carolyn but what a wonderful surprise!! The cover is freaking amazing.”

“It’s a good cover! I love the star sequins that are scattered and placed on her arm, and the lighting is beautiful too,” agreed IsabelMarantBoy.

Also to admire Carolyn’s latest work is Ortemis who simply wrote the word “captivating” inside the thread.

Srdjan seems impressed too and posts, “I never buy Italian Vogue, but I might get it this time! I love Carolyn and this is definitely alluring! It has Vogue Italia edginess but not too much, just the way I like it.”

Yet not everyone’s on board. “Holiday Allure? What exactly displays this feeling here? she looks dead!!! One of these dead by strangulation cases… eyes open… mouth slightly open… seriously! I like Carolyn’s work in general but not this… in essence, I don’t dislike the image but it simply doesn’t work in conjunction with ‘Holiday Allure’? VI is the most pretentious magazine at the moment! Their concepts almost never translate into their imagery…” comments a very disappointed KissMiss.

Oxymore shares the same sentiments: “Nice cover but, ‘Holiday Allure’ in November?”

Alber Elbaz on Why He Serves Refreshments at His Shows

Over the years, fashion people have gotten a bad rep for being picky eaters. Or, more accurately, for not eating anything at all, except maybe macarons and prosecco. But the fact of the matter is, a fashion girl’s gotta eat to survive, especially during Fashion Week. Jumping from show to show on an empty stomach is not an ideal situation for anyone — all work and no food can make for a very hangry fashion person. Lanvin creative director Alber Elbaz, thankfully, has a remedy for that.

“We realise that when people are too hungry, they are really nasty,” he told the Telegraph in a profile published today. “Especially those ladies who do all these shows during the day, and they eat nothing because they want to look skinnier than the models,” he said, throwing just the slightest amount of shade. “The models are 18 and the other ones are no longer 18, so those starvation days to look like those other girls don’t work. We give them a drink and something to eat and a forgiving light, so everybody feels comfortable.”

Hah! So that’s how Elbaz avoided a full-on riot when Kimye was over 40 minutes late to his Spring 2015 show last month.

Thursday’s have become a joy, full of anticipation for the new issue to surface and our forum members cannot stop expressing their enthusiasm. “This is insanely good!” raves mercyminx, within minutes of the cover being posting inside the thread.

Keira also can be found posing for a series of images to accompany the cover, donning a range of dresses from Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana and Alexander McQueen. “WOW, amazing editorial,” compliments a satisfied GIVENCHYlover.

Fluxx shares their enthusiasm and writes, “She photographs like a dream! Amazing editorial and cover.”

“Oh that’s gorgeous! Keira always looks beautiful and this is no exception. Love the romantic mood of the photos as well,” writes orchidee.

Fantastical tells us “Keira is magnificent” and even goes on to say it’s “the best editorial in ages.”

“I know right, even better than Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue which she usually gets,” agrees Benn98.

Major kudos to The Edit this week. See inside the thread for Keira’s cover story and join the discussion here.

WATCH: Prada’s Spooky Resort 2015 Campaign Video

Just in time for Halloween, Prada has launched its campaign for Resort 2015. The design house tapped Steven Meisel to lens the entire thing and Guido Palau to direct the accompanying video, which is just as haunting as the sepia-toned still images of Adrienne Juliger, Ine Neefs and Moya Mardy. The trio stare intently, almost creepily, into the camera in the print shots and their haunting gazes are brought to life on film in the just-released video. 

The girls seem unbothered by the wisps of wet hair dangling in front of their faces as they scan the garden with their barely-blinking eyes. The spot definitely has a spooky feel, and on Halloween it’s just perfect.

Watch the whole thing above.
