LOVE magazine is one of our favorites. It’s kind of a fashion magazine for the rest of us. Founded by Katie Grand in 2008, LOVE dared to put unlikely fashion icons like Beth Ditto and transgender model Lea T on its cover. With its fresh fashion perspective , we imagine that the mag’s parties are a really good time. And judging from the pics from Wednesday night’s LOVE Hangover ball, we’re correct.
It’s not enough that model Anja Rubik is incredibly beautiful — she also seems to be really, effortlessly cool. And motivated! Rubik is about to launch the first issue of her new erotica-tinged mag, 25. The magazine will feature spreads with some of Anja’s best model friends, and interviews with some of her famous female friends. Rubik says she was wholly invested in making an erotica magazine that would represent the female gaze, so she enlisted a roster of female photographers for all the shoots. “It was bothering me how the world is nowadays – how we approach nudity and sexuality and beauty,” said Rubik of the venture. “Nowadays, sex and nudity is either so vulgar or so prude. So I wanted to create something inspiring, and beautiful, and sensual, to get people to think in a different way.“ [NYMag.com]
As far as models go, Anja Rubik boasts a pretty decent level of notoriety. She flashed one seriously barbed hipbone at the Met Ball, then managed to redeem herself, crazy eyes and all, in Cannes. Oh, there was also that time Kanye West name-dropped her in a song (the same one he used as a vehicle to confess his love for Kim Kardashian, no less), but we don’t talk about that. Anja has the credentials for sure, but does she really have the fashion chops necessary to back it up? It would seem so: I love this simple pleated chiffon gown, and paired with the flat thong sandals and fresh, natural hair and makeup, she looks practically beach-ready. For an incredibly glamorous beach, that is.
The Cannes Film Festival ended over the weekend, and it went out with a bang, not with a whimper, if Diane Kruger’s gorgeous Christian Dior dress is any indication. Take a look at Kruger’s full gown, along with what everyone else wore to the festivities, after the jump!

Gucci will release a new interpretation of its classic Jackie style (after Jackie Kennedy), along with this sexy ad campaign with Brigitte Bardot lookalike, Anja Rubik. The new, larger size takes the bag to an edgier level with versions in metallic/violet leather, brown python, and an envy-inducing green python. The collection of 12 styles comes out in the fall, even though the news broke just a few days short of the 4th of July. So, does America trump Italy in this case? [View on Fashion] Keep reading »
