The Gentlewoman Tells The Stories Of Successful Women (And Their Compromises)

This weekend, I finally got my hands on a copy of The Gentlewoman, the new UK-based women’s style magazine from the company behind Fantastic Man. It’s definitely a departure from most fashion glossies, with long, in-depth conversations with women: some well-known, some I’d never heard of, but all fascinating. While talking about their lives, a couple of them mentioned making compromises in order to get what they want from work and life. Keep reading »

Tabloid Cheat Sheet: Jen And Gerard Are Baby-Making? Kate Gosselin Is After Jake Pavelka?

While I’ve been digesting Easter Peeps and other things that aren’t meant to be broken down by the human body, the stars have been suuuper busy falling in love, getting in bikini shape, breaking up, and throwing tantrums. They make me feel so lazy. But learning about their trials and tribulations is almost like leaving the house, so it’s my pleasure to pour over the weekly rags to bring you the best and worst of tabloid fodder. Keep reading »

Breaking News From French Marie Claire: Unretouched Models Still Perfect!

Behold! The airbrush-free April issue of French Marie Claire. This magazine is hope for womankind, a symbol of the new age of realism and our society’s understanding that our ideal of perfection isn’t achievable in real life. Oh. Wait. It’s not. In fact, everyone in it still looks more or less flawless. After you get through a slew of Photoshopped ad pages to arrive at the actual editorial content, you get a gander at the editors’ version of realistic. Hint: It’s thin and probably 15 years old. A few more images, after the jump! [The Cut] Keep reading »

Why Models Shouldn’t Style Their Own Photo Shoots

Dree Hemingway, model of the moment and granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway, is hot. Even without her mega literary-celebrity roots, she’d deserve a spot in front of the camera. What she does not deserve, however, is the job of styling the shoots she’s in. i-D Magazine just released images of a Dree shoot in which the pretty young thing both styled the outfits and sat for the pics and, sorry, girl, but those outfits are a mess. More than anything else, the whole thing looks like an amateurish ode to grade school style gone awry. That means droopy cotton dresses with tacky, too-big jewelry and even one particularly tragic instance involving a maternity top and a deer head. Sadly, the best outfit was Dree wrapped in a sheet.

With A New Owner & Editor, Will Venus Zine Be Different?

Venus Zine magazine started off its life in 1995, the creation of Amy Schroeder, then a 19-year-old women’s studies major at Michigan State. The zine covered “women in music, art, film, fashion, and DIY culture because not a lot of other publications do,” Amy would say when asked about her quarterly. Since its debut, the world has changed, and now, with a new owner and a new editor-in-chief who hope to increase circulation by broadening the publication’s appeal, Venus is getting a makeover.
