Photoshop Disasters: Just Giraffe-in Around

This Danish Elle magazine cover model (the one on the right) seems to possess quite an amazing neck. Perhaps she's one of those special giraffe girls, born with an especially long retractable spine. Or, more likely, she's just been Photoshopped within an inch of her life. [Photoshop Disasters]…

Amanda Seyfried Compares Herself To Meryl Streep

“Meryl [Streep] makes herself very accessible right away, almost too accessible. That’s what I do. And it totally works. My thing about meeting people—men, women, people in general—is to desensitize them, kind of shock them a little bit, to make myself accessible.” -- Amanda Seyfried on how to win friends and influence people i…

The Ladies Of “Skins” Show Some Skin In Elle

Considering that those PG photos of the Gleeks in GQ caused such a ruckus, I'm wondering if these images of the ladies of MTV's "Skins" in the new issue of Elle will get any backlash. Sure, they're reasonably covered—part of a spread on incorporating underwear into outerwear—but the actresses seen here are…

“The City”‘s Erin Moving To Teen Vogue

Our favorite character on MTV's series "The City" was never super saccharine Whitney Port or hyper-villainous Olivia Palermo--it was Elle PR head Erin Kaplan. Kaplan's side-eye glare and over-boiled frustration said what we all felt about Palermo's conniving ways. Well, now she's got a new gig -- as head PR honcho at Teen Vogue. The…

Katie Holmes’ Elle Cover Boasts Her Now-Cancelled Miniseries

Katie Holmes graces the cover of February's Elle magazine, alongside the cover line, "On Tom, Suri, and coming back to TV—as Jackie O." Only, as we reported yesterday, Katie's miniseries "The Kennedys" has been indefinitely shelved by The History Channel. That's a little awkward. [PopWrap]…

One Dress, 3 Covers, Big Drama

Miu Miu has some explaining to do. Somehow, the exact same dress from the Fall 2010 runway just appeared on the three different magazine covers, meaning the editors at British Vogue, British Elle, AND W are none too pleased! Now technically, there are a few variations in the design: while the colors are different, the…

Where Does The Word “Sneakers” Come From?

I came across a little tidbit in the "Hot Contents" section of Elle's July issue that said advertising man Henry Nelson McKinney popularized the term "sneakers" while working on a 1917 Keds campaign. The athletic shoes, as Keds were known before this clever moment, had a rubber sole that allowed the wearer to sneak…

Rihanna Has A Big Head On The Cover Of Elle

If Rihanna's head was really as big as it is on the cover of the July issue of Elle, it would fall off. [Elle]…

Kristen Stewart’s British Elle Cover Looks Ripped From The Late ’90s

Is it just us or does Kristen Stewart's upcoming Elle U.K. cover look like it features a "Friends" cast member? The magazine says the simple hair and makeup were an attempt to keep in touch with Stewart's "enviably effortless style," but we think she looks distinctly unlike herself and a little too…

Do You Want To See Average-Looking Women In Magazines And Movies?

Elle editor-in-chief Robbie Myers went on "Today" this morning to talk about body types and how curvier models are getting more attention in the fashion industry these days, with more womanly figures walking the runways at Louis Vuitton, Prada, and more. She said, however, that women reading magazines or watching movies don't want to see…

Are You A Fan Of Anklets?

While flipping through the April issue of Elle, we learned that anklets and anklet heels are big right now. Lanvin (above left), Stuart Weitzman, and even Nine West incorporated anklets into shoes this spring, and dainty anklets got some attention in the magazine, too. The last time we considered wearing a…

Who’s That Girl?

Why, it's country music sensation and America's newly minted sweetheart Taylor Swift, looking very edgy and grownup and oh-so-fashion-y for her new April Elle cover story. Photog Alexei Hay shot her in black and white for the mag, and we have to say, we're a little surprised. Different, no? [Elle]…

J.Lo Brings The Leather Mama Look In Elle

While more than a few of us questioned her judgment when it came to that crazy New Year's Eve catsuit, clearly, age-appropriate is not an issue for Jennifer Lopez. The February Elle cover pics have dropped and (with the help of Joe Zee, obvs), she brings it in leather and, well, more leather.

Kanye West Shoots Amber Rose’s Booty For Elle!

So we knew that controversial man of the hour Kanye West was styling a photo shoot for Elle, but we didn't guess that his major muse, Amber Rose, would be the one modeling the clothes, which, looking back, was astonishingly stupid on our parts. But everyone makes mistakes. Moving on! Pics from…

Want An Elle Internship? Put “Homeless” On Your Resume!

Maybe sleeping in the doorway is the best way to get your foot in the door? It worked for Bri, a blogger who was living in a Wal-Mart parking lot. A few months back, she auditioned for a reality show for aspiring advice columnists where the winner would receive an internship at Elle with…

Andy Samberg Takes On “Elle” Fashion Challenge For “Date Looks”

Over at Elle, Creative Director and Fashionisto Joe Zee has had an epiphany. Complains a fashion editor to Zee, "He won’t understand that it’s all about my new draped devore velvet Balenciaga dress right now. He’ll only think I’m wearing curtains," as she laments (oh boo hoo) her first-date outfit choices. And then it…

Quick Pic: Chuck and Blair Go Goth

Just because you're not on one of those hot-right-now vampire shows doesn't mean you can't be inspired by the look. Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick give in to the power of the night in a leaked photo from an upcoming issue of Elle. [Gossip Girl Insider]…

Where Have All the Models Gone?

In the furor over the surprisingly glam Susan Boyle Harper's Bazaar pics that came out recently, some of you may have forgotten early rumors that she'd be on the mag's cover rather than an inside feature story. Well, I wrote about the rumors for another site a few week…

Mariah Carey’s New Album Takes Product Shilling To The Next Level

Mariah Carey’s next album, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, hits shelves on September 15th. And it'll be a lot bigger than your traditional CD. The album will come bundled with a 34-page magazine made by the folks at Elle. The ad section of the book, which covered the costs for this endeavor, will…
