I get why some people are going to be celebrating the decline and impending death of FHM, the “lad” mag whose hook was a steady stream of just-this-side-of-nude photos of famous women. Its publisher has given in to the reality that magazines are a dying medium that peaked about ten years ago, andREAD MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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,… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

“I didn’t eat for a day and I did about 2,000 sit-ups … I said, ‘Listen, I have two requests—good lighting and a warm room. That’s all I’m asking for.’ If I’m walking out with it all f**king hanging out there for the world to see then, well, I need good lighting and a warm… READ MORE »

Personally, I loathe perfume ads in magazines. It’s impossible to tell what the scent actually smells like, because after languishing on the glossy page between a hundred other fragrances, the original essence is gone. But the magazine mono.kultur #23 decided that I’m wrong, and chose to create their latest issue entirely out of smells, as… READ MORE »
