Grazia, a weekly U.K. fashion glossy that serves up style in a juicy tabloid-like manner, has a Twitter account (like most publications these days). We follow it to keep up on news and especially to enjoy their 140-character office updates and commentary (“Lucy the human swing-o-meter…has just announced on election day she will be wearing red, yellow and blue into the office.*fash girls reel*”). However, we’ve noticed some bizarre Tweets here and there that are either completely unrelated to style or just don’t make sense. Please see: “Aghgggh!! Cabbie is proper BNP nutter! Let me out!!” Could it be we just don’t understand Brit-speak? Or are we missing some part of the conversation? After the jump, some of the slightly schizo Tweets … [@Grazia_Live] Keep reading »
Chace Crawford has been busting his chops this week as Grazia‘s guest fashion editor, and, sheesh, have these girls put him through the Grazia training camp. He’s been editing and critiquing photos of celeb outfits, selecting clothing, reporting on British style icons, and picking out featured fashions. He was even subjected to re-taking the magazine’s fashion quiz (which he failed miserably last time). Here, Chace is given a new challenge of identifying hair, skin, and makeup tools. Poor guy is really thrown into the deep end of the pool (or beauty closet). To be fair, we have to say this test looked particularly hard. We’re not sure we’d even pass! [Grazia]

After reading about the ridiculous air diet in a recent issue of French Grazia, I have a confession to make: I’m now a full-on addict of the sometimes-crazy fashion rag, and look forward to picking it up just to see what weird “hot trend” they’ll uncover next. (Of course, this is much easier for me to do given that I live in Paris—but now I can translate all the best international gossip for you!) This week, it’s about old people: “Les Seniors de la Hype,” which I’m sure you understand. Keep reading »
Americans may be diet-obsessed, but we’ve got nothing on French women. When American Vogue publishes a weight loss article, you won’t hear the end of it for months. But in France, pick up any popular women’s fashion magazine, and you’ll find there’s at least one diet-focused feature without fail. Oftentimes, these publications don’t even try to attempt fake-holistic attitudes towards health. Take, for example, French Elle‘s review of the ridiculous Forking Diet, where you can only consume foods meant to be eaten with a fork.
Tavi sat front row at the Dior couture show in Paris, sporting this rather tall hair-bow-hat-thing. Obviously peeved that some teenager had gotten better seats, and will probably take her job next, a Grazia editor Tweeted the pic with an annoyed caption: “Dior through Tavi’s pesky hat.” The outrage quickly spread through the Twittersphere. But the one person who didn’t seem to mind? Karl Lagerfeld (OK, the fake one): “Spotted my niece Tavi today around Paris wearing a delightful hat. Does she do children’s parties?” Welcome to the fashion world, people. [Twitter] Keep reading »
