Is This Allure Mag Editorial Very Sexy Or Straight Up Violent?

Fashion magazines are constantly trying to push the envelope when it comes to edgy, racy content. I get that. But something made me pause when I saw the Autumn Noir spread in the latest issue of Allure magazine. The editorial features models Edita Vilkeviciute and Candice Swanepoel in various stages of undress going at one…

Girl Talk: I Don’t Know What I Weigh — The Case for Stepping Off the Scale

The June issue of Allure has the usual headlines about what beauty products to buy and how to get good hair and better skin. Also thrown into the sexy, sun-kissed mix is this tidbit of information about their cover girl: “Zoe Saldana: 115 Pounds Of Grit And Heartache.” Hey, she’s slight but this gal’s got…

Allure Publishes Zoe Saldana’s Weight On The Cover, For Some Reason

Allure has always been the fluffiest of beauty magazines, as if tailor-made for reading during a pedicure. The June 2013 cover with Zoe Saldana made an extremely odd editorial choice: it listed the actress’ weight on the cover. “Zoe Saldana, 115 Pounds of Grit And Heartache,” the cover line reads. What the fuck, Allure? I…

Drew Barrymore Is Glad She Lived A “Full Life” Before Motherhood–What Do You Think?

“It’s embarrassing to go through any rebellious stage in front of people that you love and respect, and yet I’m glad I did. I’m glad I lived such a full life before I settled down into a family, because I got to enjoy it and get it out of my system.”
–Drew Barrymore tells Allure magazine…

Listen, Zooey Deschanel, You’re Not Weird — But These 12 Awesome Ladies Are!

I’ve been on the fence about Zooey Deschanel for some time now. Partly because she sang a ridiculously cute song with My Fantasy Boyfriend a few weeks ago, and partly because I feel that she’s cultivated this totally annoying Manic Pixie Dream Indie Rock Girl persona, and it just seems to goddamn fake. But the…

Is Karlie Kloss Too Young To Be Nearly Nude In Allure?

How young is too young for nude shots? Some are up in arms over a recent photo of 19-year-old model Karlie Kloss that appeared in Allure magazine. Allure, you say? Yes, shockingly the beauty mag has raised the ire of fashion critics for employing the still-technically-a-teenager-Kloss in a Allure’s “Best of Beauty” shoots–one of which…

The Racy Allure Editorial Starring Karlie Kloss Is Being Made Into A Big Deal

For a Mario Testino – shot beauty editorial in this month’s Allure, 19-year-old Karlie Kloss wears very little makeup — along with very little of anything else. (A sample fashion credit: “necklace by Fenton, spandex thong by Victoria’s Secret.”) Though her modesty’s consistently preserved, it’s only thanks to some splayed fingers here and well-positioned bath…

January Jones Says Long-Distance Didn’t Work For Her And Jason Sudeikis

“The long distance kind of petered us out. When you date someone else who’s in the industry, someone has to make the sacrifices. And if no one’s willing to, then you just have to be friends.”
January Jones is on the cover of the June issue of Allure, and inside the magazine talks about why…

Ashley Tisdale, Keri Hilson, Bridget Moynahan, Kaley Cuoco Strip For Allure

In Allure’s Naked Truth feature—which I swear Harper’s Bazaar does, too?—they ask celebrities to strip down for a nude photo shoot and talk about how they feel about their bodies. In the past, the magazine has gotten Padma Lakshmi, Eliza Dushku, Chelsea Handler, and Kara DioGuardi to pose. This year’s spread has some fun choices—Keri…

Quotable: Kim Kardashian Doesn’t Want To Talk About Her Sex Tape, Thank You

“Not my most proud moment, it was humiliating. But now let’s move on. Not that I don’t think it’s no one’s business, but I think I’ve done a good job with replacing negative things with positive things.”– Kim Kardashian on her infamous sex tape with ex-boyfriend Ray J in Allure. As for appearing on the…

Beyoncé Used To Iron Her Hair—What Were Your Misguided Beauty Blunders?

Stars! They’re just like us! In this month’s Allure, Beyoncé talks about her silly beauty regime that wasn’t always first-class:

“I remember when I started doing my hair myself—I cut bangs, and I started curling my hair and pressing it, literally, with an iron … The girls from Destiny’s Child, we would put our…

Is This The Best Eye Cream, Um, In The World?

The AllureBest of Beauty” awards are no joke. As an Allure alum, I can personally attest to the fact that literally hundreds of products are tested by the beauty experts on staff in order to select the most high-performance offerings available on the market, and their standards are stringent. That’s why I was amazed…
