This Hurricane Sandy Spread In Vogue Is Kinda Pushing It

Vogue isn’t exactly known for its sensitivity to, um, sensitive issues, and that’s fine. It is, after all, a fashion and society magazine, not The Atlantic. But every once in a while the international publication comes at us with something controversial, something so tone-deaf (see: longtime contributor Joan Juliet Buck’s complimentary portrait of Syrian first

Karl Lagerfeld Photographs Victoria Beckham In Chanel’s Iconic Paris Home

It’s not every day that Karl Lagerfeld deems a fashionista worthy of being photographed in Coco Chanel’s iconic former Paris home at 31 Rue Cambon, so it’s kind of remarkable that he chose Victoria Beckham over someone like, say, Blake Lively. I totally thought Blake was his dress-up doll of choice these days. I do have…

Rashida Jones Photographed Like You’ve Never Seen Her Before For “Flaunt” Magazine

Rashida Jones? Is that you? We’ve always known the “Parks and Recreation” actress to be beautiful but restrained, given that her personal style, not to mention the type of role she generally goes for, veers more on the sweet, bookish side rather than the total bombshell she could totally be if she wanted to (no…

Katy Perry Is Flame-Haired And Florence-Esque On The Cover Of L’Officiel

Katy Perry is no stranger to Crayola-colored hair, having long eschewed her natural blonde (!) for every which shade of the Manic Panic rainbow, but this is the first time we’ve seen the songstress looking so …  fiery! The September cover of French fashion mag L’Officiel casts Katy in a warmer, more romantic light, offsetting…

Choupette Makes Her Modeling Debut Alongside Laetitia Casta In September’s “V”

Another day, another Choupette headline! Karl Lagerfeld‘s famous feline is getting more press than the Kaiser himself these days, and with a face like that, who could complain? V is the latest magazine to feature the esteemed Siamese model, who has apparently signed with one of the world’s top agencies — and in her first-ever…

Keira Knightley Goes Goth And Gorgeous For The Cover Of “Harper’s Bazaar” UK

Confession: I haven’t seen a Keira Knightley movie since “Love Actually,” but I’ll gladly own up to my weakness for the actress any day. How could I not, what with her impeccable bone structure? It also helps that, for all of Keira’s delicate features and compelling roles (but also not really), she manages to come…

Beached Mermaid

If Ariel from The Little Mermaid got really into fashion, cut her hair a bit and was then caught in a really strong, shoreward tide, this is what would happen. Honestly, we don’t hate it. [Fashion Copious]…

Jumping Through The Ages

As far as editorials go, few things are more fun than a good jump shot. And while Caroline Trentini’s Vogue leap (pictured) has epitomized the jump shot for the past several seasons, she owes her inspiration to photographer Phillipe Hallsman, the man who more or less invented the technique. Hallsman captured everyone from Marilyn Monroe…

Ciara Gets Model-y For Vogue Paris

Ciara has been looking pretty unremarkable in photos lately. Don’t get me wrong, the singer/dancer’s body is still on point, but black leggings and eye-catching heels get kind of boring after a while. For the June/July 2010 issue of Vogue Paris, Ciara sheds her around-the-way attire and dons sheer, feathery, and glitzy garments instead. She…

Interview Magazine’s “Let’s Get Lost” … In Black Savagery?

Fashion, fashion, fashion. So many strange, racy … racist things have been done in your name that it’s no wonder you’re a disrespected laughingstock to more than half the world. We’ve seen white models appear in blackface in your name. Gisele Bundchen and LeBron James reenact “King Kong” or “Tarzan,” depending on whom you speak…

Two Reasons Kobe Bryant Should Stick To Basketball

Sometimes when we try something new, it becomes blatantly clear that we’ll never turn the activity into a profession. I learned this when I took a pole dancing class in 2008. After a few minutes of instruction, I painfully admitted that I didn’t have the coordination or muscle tone to go sliding down a stripper…

Why Is Shrek In A Fashion Editorial?

We are pretty consistent fans of uber-cool fashion mag V and its gentlemanly counterpart, VMan. That said, what in God’s name were they thinking with this Shrek editorial? I guess it’s a little funny? Kind of? But it’s mostly just perplexingly behind the times and a total non sequitur. We get that the ten billionth…

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…

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…

Sexy Sosa For Tush Magazine

Photographer David Slijper shot “On a Night Like This,” a beauty editorial featuring model Arlenis Sosa, for Tush Magazine. Frederik Stambro created the stunning beauty looks that have us wishing our makeup had the power to give us a sultry attitude like Arlenis’. [Clutch]…

Does This Mean I Have To Paint Myself Green For Fall?

And I thought those heel-less high heels presented enough of a fashion challenge. Now I have to paint myself green this season? Mon Dieu! In this très bizarre fashion story for Pop magazine’s fall/winter issue, model Kinga Rajzak dons psychedelic rainbow hair, a balloon shrug, and aquamarine body paint. Frisky style editor Erin loves the…
