Amber Heard Wears the Glitter Eye Trend on Allure’s December Cover

It’s hard to believe that Amber Heard’s last notable cover appearance on a fashion magazine was for Marie Claire back in December 2015. Allure now reminds us of Amber’s existence with the newly unveiled cover for December 2017. This has been a monumental year for Allure with a string of successful covers, including a diversity issue, an anti-anti-aging issue and a cover starring hijab-wearing model Halima Aden. Unfortunately, Allure‘s latest disappoints with a close-up of a bejeweled Amber, photographed by Daniel Jackson.

Our forum members weren’t here for it. “Didn’t even realize this was her,” exclaimed 333101 the moment the cover struck.

“I think the new Allure is allergic to glamour, instead they churn out looks more suited to getting wasted at a music festival. Amber already looks like she is,” wrote an uninterested tigerrouge.

“I find her beautiful and I love a good close-up but this is awful,” confessed KateTheGreatest.

Jexxica felt the same way. “I love Amber and I was excited about it when I read her name but I hate what they did to her here. A more natural look would have been fantastic in that close-up,” she wrote.

“Amber looks festive and fantasy, but not the layout. White simply wasn’t the right choice here. Why not Gold or Bronze? I do like that Allure adopted some of the ill-fated Russian edition’s campiness, even if this close-up reminds me of Kerry’s cover,” pointed out Benn98.

Also sensing some similarities toward Russian Allure was magsaddict: “The spirit of the dearly departed Allure Russia is alive and well! What’s next? Actual models on the cover again? You get the feeling that some of these mags are aware how precarious their future is, so they’re trying all these different concepts in the hope one catches on.”

On the Road Again: I’m Nevada Bound!

A quick note to let everyone know that I will be on the road again for the rest of the week, and thus there will be no updates to The Adventure Blog until next Monday. This time out, I’m heading to Nevada, and while Las Vegas will serve as Base Camp, I won’t be spending a lot of time there. Over the course of the next few days, I’ll be mountain biking, hiking, off-roading, and climbing at a…

Republicans are talking about having Jeff Sessions run against embattled GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore

  • Top Republicans have been publicly floating the idea of having Attorney General Jeff Sessions mount a write-in campaign for the Alabama Senate seat currently being sought by Roy Moore, who faces multiple sexual misconduct allegations.
  • Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly discussed the idea of having Sessions appointed to the Senate seat should Moore be elected and removed from office.
  • Sessions appears unlikely to agree to either plan, according to those close to him.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reportedly suggested on Tuesday that Attorney General Jeff Sessions replace Roy Moore, the beleaguered Alabama Republican running for Senate amid multiple accusations of sexual misconduct with teenage girls.

Moore has come under increased pressure by top Republicans to abandon his election bid. Although it is too late to replace Moore on the ballot, Republicans would mount a write-in campaign for an alternative candidate to pit against Doug Jones, the Democratic opponent.

“[Moore’s] campaign is collapsing,” McConnell said Tuesday at the Wall Street Journal CEO Council. “Obviously we’re in a discussion here about how to salvage this seat if possible.

“The Alabamian who would fit that profile would be the attorney general,” McConnell continued. “He’s totally well known and extremely popular in Alabama.”

McConnell also discussed the write-in idea with Vice President Mike Pence in a call on Monday, according to The Washington Post. Another potential solution they reportedly discussed was appointing Sessions to the Senate seat should Moore win the election and be immediately removed from office — an outcome Senate rules allow for.

Should Moore win the election, two-thirds of the Senate could vote against seating him, leaving the Alabama governor with the opportunity to name a replacement.

The idea of encouraging Sessions to seek his old Alabama seat has gained traction among Republican officials, as Sessions remains popular in the state, and has notably fallen out of favor with President Donald Trump due to his decision to recuse himself from the Russia investigation.

Sessions has said there’s no reason to doubt Moore’s accusers

jeff sessionsSessions, however, appears unlikely to agree to McConnell’s plan, according to those close to him.

“This is wishful thinking from people who probably don’t even know Jeff Sessions and certainly haven’t spoken to him,” one official close to Sessions told ABC News.

Sessions has not publicly addressed the idea, but was questioned about the allegations against Moore during his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

“I have no reason to doubt these young women,” Sessions said.

Five women have come forward publicly, alleging that Moore pursued relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s.

One of the women, Leigh Corfman, told The Washington Post in a bombshell report published last week that Moore initiated a sexual encounter with her when she was 14 and he was 32. She said he brought her to his home twice and on the second visit took off her clothes and touched her over her bra and underpants and then forced her to touch him over his underwear.

A fifth accuser, Beverly Young Nelson, came forward in a press conference on Monday to accuse Moore of sexually assaulting her in his car when she was a 16-year-old waitress and he was the district attorney of Alabama’s Etowah County. As proof of their relationship, Nelson displayed a page of her high-school yearbook she said Moore had asked to sign during an earlier visit to the restaurant she worked at.

“To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say, ‘Merry Christmas.’ Love, Roy Moore DA, 12-22-77, Olde Hickory House,” the message read.

Moore has denied the allegations against him, and said as recently as Tuesday afternoon that he plans to remain in the race, according to ABC News.
