An Ode to the Inked Supermodel


Spell check is always a good idea. Especially when it comes to tattoos. (We’re looking at you Hayden Panettiere!) Grammatical errors and tramp-stamps aside, the world of ink is full of bada$$ possibilities for the daring. Today we’re looking at eight runway regulars with a penchant for ink. And if you’re feeling inclined to get tatted, there’s always these temporary tattoos.. for grown-ups! read more…

The Evolution Of ~The Face of Chanel~: 40 Years In Pictures

Earning a spot in a Chanel campaign is almost like winning the lottery – your paycheck is bound to amount up to at least $4 million dollars, your face and name instantly make it in the books, and you’re presented with a rare approval from Mr. Karl Lagerfeld himself. However, these faces aren’t exactly “irreplaceable” considering a new face is introduced year after year – and really, who’s counting? Well, the crew here at Fora has been keeping up even before we were born. Here’s a Chanel timeline of four beautiful decades gone by. read more…

Fur Your Information: This Is What Your Clothes Are Made Of

Don’t get us wrong: we’re not saying we’re against leathers and furs, but there comes a brief moment when you think, “I wonder where this angora sweater came from” (actually, we didn’t even know what an angora rabbit looked like until now). So, we found a few of the living material providers of some of our fashion favourites. read more…

HEADLINES: Lizzie is ‘It’, Anna is Desperate, and Nancy Grace Lets It All Hang Out, Literally!

Lindsay Lohan got a job! Huge news in and of itself. The job is modelling for Philipp Plein. Modelling? Is this her new official occupation? Anyway don’t pee your pants yet because, really, who the heck is Philipp Plein? Exactly. And guess who LL’s predecessor was. Miss Mischa Barton circa last year! Yeah, that’s just embarrassing Linds. (Lainey Gossip)

Page Six is reporting that Anna Wintour is desperate to have Duchess Kate Middleton pose for the cover of US Vogue. Apparently she has gone as far as asking photographer Mario Testino to put in a good word as he photographed to Royal Couple’s engagement photos.  Anna desperate? That’s a first! (Celebitchy)

Elizabeth Chase Olsen covers the October issue of Nylon magazine. Lizzie (the one-time real estate agent) covers Nylon’s ‘It Girl Issue’ and we couldn’t think of a better choice. She’s ‘It’ indeed! (Nylon)

The newest trend in the red carpet world? Celebrities wearing runway looks BEFORE they hit the runway! Remember that heinous midriff bearing dress Gwyneth Paltrow wore to the Emmys on Sept. 18th? Well it ended up hitting the runway at Pucci’s Spring show on Sept. 24th! Bet she wish it didn’t cause it looks a hell of a lot better on the model! (Fashionista)

Stylish little monsters rejoice! Lady Gaga and Nicola Formichetti are at it again! The two are shooting a video together to be premiered tomorrow at the Mugler Spring 2012 fashion show. No word on the content yet, but you bet your bottom dollar it will be a shocking spectacle (as usual). (Lucky)

Models doing good! It’s a rare headline to read but definitely a welcome one. Freja Beha Erichsen is one such model who is using her popularity to generate funds for charity; Docters Without Borders. To clarify; Freja is not a doctor (I thought that too when I originally read this story) she is simply a beautiful person doing beautiful things. Brava! (Modelina)

The one nip-slip you would never EVER want to see happened last night. DWTS’s competitor Nancy Grace let her right nip slip immediately after her performance last night as she approached the judges table to receive her scores. Nance you are no Janet Jackson, get it together! (Too Fab)

THE NEW BANGS

Bangs aren’t a new thing in the realms of fashion and hair… and fashionable hair. But these are THE NEW BANGS. Blunt, and a little longer than usual so they stop just after your eyebrows. An easy cut, quick, and can be personalized to pretty much any face shape. Looking to change up your hair game? Take a cue from these ladies, print out these pics, and head to your hairdresser, lady. read more…
