Natalia Vodianova And P. Diddy Get Their Train On

It’s a nod to P. Diddy’s upcoming album, Last Train to Paris. More pretty pics after the jump. Keep reading »

Lady Gaga Is What’s For Dinner

Lady Gaga parades her way through the December issue of Vogue magazine in a bizarre reenactment of Hansel and Gretel costarring Lily Cole and Andrew Garfield that was shot by Annie Leibovitz. “I’ve always been an outspoken and extreme dresser,” Miss Gaga confesses. You don’t say? At one point, Vogue Creative Director Grace Coddington reveals, she-who-wears-no-pants showed up on set “stark naked except for her white rubber raincoat and some very, very high heels.” It’s only a matter of time, one supposes, before the Lady forsakes clothes altogether, no? The full “Lady Gaga Does Hansel and Gretel” images after the jump. Keep reading »

Louis Vuitton + Red Cross = ?

For the Red Cross’s 150th Anniversary, Louis Vuitton and friends are joining forces to really celebrate in style. Photog Annie Liebovitz and artist Damien Hirst have each designed Louis Vuitton pieces for the collection to be auctioned off at Sotheby’s on November 17. Even Marc Jacobs got in on the action with a travel trunk for his dogs. Not only should this make you want to fly around the world, but it makes everyone else want to see you doing it. (Hey, a girl can dream, right?) After the jump, check out these soon-to-be auctioned items. Keep reading »

Sean Lennon Defends His Homage Portrait After Backlash

Sean Lennon and his model girlfriend, Kemp Muhl, recently posed for a photo homage to Annie Leibovitz’s iconic Rolling Stone cover depicting Sean’s parents, Yoko Ono and John Lennon. But unlike the original, which was taken just hours before Lennon’s assassination and featured a naked John curled up to a clothed Yoko, in Terry Richardson’s version for Purple Magazine, Sean took his mom’s position while Kemp got nekkid to play Lennon. [Huffington Post]

Lots of peeps, including many of you, thought the remake was a cheap objectification of ladyfolk. But Sean Lennon spoke back this week to New York Magazine on his intentions. Keep reading »

Sean Lennon Recreates Parents’ Legendary Photo

In late 1980, hours before he was shot and killed, John Lennon posed with wife Yoko Ono for legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz. Lennon was naked and curled around his wife. After the Beatles star died, the image became an iconic Rolling Stone cover. Now, nearly 30 years later, their son, Sean Lennon, and his model-girlfriend Kemp Muhl recreated the infamous shot with provocative photographer Terry Richardson for the fall issue of Purple magazine. This time, Sean lies fully clothed as a nude Muhl spoons him. What do you think: beautiful homage or twisted facsimile? [Flavorwire] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Lady In Red

Have you spied French actress Marion Cotillard‘s new Lady Dior ads? They were shot in New York City by legendary–and financially struggling–photographer Annie Leibovitz. Word is they’ll be plastered all over Paris come Fashion Week. [Lady Dior] Keep reading »

Annie Leibovitz Gets Sued

Last summer, photography mastermind Annie Leibovitz was strapped for cash, so she took out a $24 million loan from a finance company called Art Capital Group. Supposedly, for collateral on the loan, she used all her photos and her homes Manhattan and Upstate New York. Well, Art Capital Group is claiming that Annie is in breach of contract, and filed a lawsuit this week demanding that Annie let appraisers into her homes so they can estimate the value and start selling everything off. Meanwhile, Annie says this is BS. [NY Times]

So can this company really sell all her photos? That seems kind of wrong. You shoot gorgeous Vanity Fair covers, and you get no respect. Keep reading »

Are Plus-Sized Woman Finally Acceptable Fashion Icons?

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is not known for loving larger women. In fact, she even got Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy to see a trainer and go on a diet for a story in the magazine’s April 2008 issue. But it seems as though Wintour is changing her tune. The British, Grammy-nominated singer Adele was recently photographed by Annie Liebovitz for an issue of Vogue, and Wintour took such a liking to her that the editor offered to style her for the Grammy Awards. Hmm… This sounds a lot like the time when Vogue editor-at-large André Leon Talley took Jennifer Hudson under his Balenciaga-designed wing, after she was nominated for an Oscar for “Dreamgirls.” Could it be possible that Vogue has, at last, realized that amazing women come in double-digit sizes? We certainly hope so, because most of us look a whole lot more like Adele in clothes than we do Kate Moss. Now, if Wintour can aid Adele in landing a deal as the face of some fashion house, then we’ll really know that change has come. Keep reading »

The Daily Hotness: Daniel Radcliffe

Harry Potter isn’t afraid to put it all out there. Daniel Radcliffe, who starred as the magical teen titan Harry Potter, earlier this week admitted he has neurological disorder, dyspraxia, which affects his coordination. But he can still cast a spell on you! Just check out his pony play spread in the September issue of Vogue. He’s riding horses and they’re all bareback — giddy up! Although the weird fetal/grandpa shot creeps us out, we’ll blame it (like the Miley Cyrus photo controversy) on famous photographer Annie Leibovitz. Sure, he says he stripped down to promote the new Broadway play he’s horsing around in — Equus — but we’ll take any excuse to see this barely legal babe in the buff! [Trend Hunter] Keep reading »

Sofia Coppola: Daddy’s Girl

The mark of a good dad is his kids, and when you’re Francis Ford Coppola, director of The Godfather trilogy, Apocalypse Now, and our personal favorite, the Michael Jackson Disney World 3D experience, Captain EO, you’ve already set the bar pretty darn high for your children. But if there’s a woman awesome enough to fill her father’s film-making shoes it’s Sofia Coppola. With The Virgin Suicides, Lost In Translation, and Marie Antoinette to her credit, she is undoubtedly making him proud. The two recently posed together for Annie Leibovitz (the photog responsible for ruining Miley Cyrus’ career), who shot their ad for Louis Vuitton Journeys. Sure, it’s made to sell handbags, but it also shows just how supportive and loving their father/daughter relationship really is. The Coppola’s are the cutest! [Trend Hunter]
