Elle Magazine Promotes “North Korea Chic” As Hot Fall Trend

Elle magazine includes "North Korea Chic" as fashion trend

For the most part, Elle‘s list of “top fashion trends” for this autumn reads like any other: nautical, punk, pastels, Victorian, and Wednesday Addams are all fairly standard fodder for style inspiration. But one of these things is not like the others, and that thing would be “North Korea Chic,” which creative director Joe Zee is attempting to laud as “the next big thing.” Keep reading »

Kim Kardashian Makes A Significant Fashion Score With The Cover Of CR Fashion Book

Is this really happening? After all of this time, and all of Anna Wintour‘s reported efforts — discouraging Kanye West from attending the Met Ball with Kim on his arm, refusing to deign to Yeezus’ request that North’s official unveiling come by way of a Vogue cover — is Kim Kardashian finally finding herself embraced, or at least tolerated, by the fashion industry’s inner circle?

Considering the sex tape/reality TV star landed the newest cover of Carine Roitfeld‘s biannual editorial tome CR Fashion Book, all signs point to … maybe. Carine famously fell out with Wintour in 2010, which resulted in her ousting from the editor-in-chief position at Vogue Paris, so to suggest that Kim has at long last ingratiated herself with the Vogue crowd would be a bit of a stretch. Still, the photos, shot while Kim was almost nine months pregnant, are nothing to shrug at — they were art-directed by close Kanye (and Carine) compadre Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy, and who worked the camera but Karl Lagerfeld himself? Not bad, Kim, not bad. Kanye’s infamous Tweet, forever memorialized on this holy grail of T-shirts, is starting to make that much more sense.

And the grills are just the beginning — check out the rest of the spread, including, yes, the belly shot, after the jump. [CelebuzzWWD] Keep reading »

Is This Allure Mag Editorial Very Sexy Or Straight Up Violent?

Is This Allure Mag Editorial Very Sexy Or Straight Up Violent?

Fashion magazines are constantly trying to push the envelope when it comes to edgy, racy content. I get that. But something made me pause when I saw the Autumn Noir spread in the latest issue of Allure magazine. The editorial features models Edita Vilkeviciute and Candice Swanepoel in various stages of undress going at one another with tweezers, waxing strips and the like. In each of the four images presented in the spread, the models are depicted inflicting pain — beauty pain, but pain — on one another. There’s Vilkeviciute giving Swanepoel what appears to be an unwanted tattoo; Swanepoel ripping wax off of Vilkeviciute’s armpit; and perhaps the most violent of the images, Swanepoel holding down Vilkeviciute and piercing her ears with a piercing gun. There even appears to be a bit of blood on Vilkeviciute’s earlobe to really punctuate the pain. Keep reading »

We here at The Frisky are obsessed with “Downton Abbey,” so much so that we dreamt up an entire faux magazine dedicated to the Crawley clan and their assorted footmen, lady’s maids and butlers. Downton Glamour is our ode to the crazy world that exists inside “Downton Abbey” and the no doubt salacious gossip reads that might come out of the manor and its inhabitants. Instead of recapping season three — which premiered in the US last night on PBS — every week, we’ll just hint at the goings on with a new cover of Downton Glamour.

German fashion magazine Brigitte got caught up in the “real women” craze a couple of years ago, and instituted a “no models” policy on its pages. It was a bid to appeal to the not-stick-thin real world, where women, you know, eat. But three years after creating the policy, the magazine is abandoning it, claiming that it was too difficult to find “regular” women who could do the job.

The editor originally made the change because she felt that models didn’t offer a fair representation of real women. She wrote: “Today’s models weigh around 23 percent less than normal women. The whole model industry is anorexic.”

I admit, I used to subscribe to The Economist. I let the issues pile up, promising I’d get to them eventually, whenever I felt like reading pretentious, dry and humorless reading on world affairs. But that day never really came. And so after about a year, my subscription ran out, and I traded it in for a sub to The New Yorker, which I happily devour each week. When I saw this delightful little pamphlet put out by the mag’s clearly-misguided marketing team, it only further confirmed my decision to get the eff away from the First World Order boy’s club that seems to be running the place. “Why should women be reading The Economist?” it queries, and answers, “They shouldn’t.” Instead! “Accomplished, influential people should read us. People like you.” Which of course, assumes that women couldn’tpossibly be accomplished or influential. (Ladies! I know, right?) Oh, old guard, you really got us there.  A better question might be ,”Why should anyone be readingThe Economist?” Because obviously, they really, really shouldn’t.

You were thinking, magazines are too easy to carry around–they’re so small and petite and fit so well on my coffee table. It’s like they’re not trying hard enough. Well, not Visionaire! Their new issue 0ffers Lady Gaga at life-size proportions. While a typical issue of Visionaire clocks in at a rather ridiculous 3 x 5 (and $375), the newest issue also comes in an even more extreme 5 x 7 format. Yes, for a mere $1,500, you can have your own magazine-that-doubles-as-a-sleeping-mat. Watch as a few waify models struggle to get the damn thing on a city bus. [YouTube]
