“Nobody Really Wants To See A Real Person On The Cover Of Vogue,” Says UK Vogue Editor — But I Call Bullshit

The editor of UK Vogue, Alexandra Shulman, gave an interview this weekend and revealed very candidly how people who create fashion magazines like Vogue think. In an interview on BBC Radio 2, Shulman — who has been editor of UK Vogue since 1992 — spoke about what makes for a successful magazine cover. Here she is quoted by the UK’s Telegraph:

“If I knew exactly what sold it would be like having the secret of the universe, but I’d say broadly speaking, if you’re going to talk about a model or a personality, it’s kind of a quite middle view of what beauty is. Quite conventional, probably smiling, in a pretty dress; somebody looking very ‘lovely’. The most perfect girl next door.” … People always say ‘why do you have thin models? That’s not what real people look like’ But nobody really wants to see a real person looking like a real person on the cover of Vogue. I think Vogue is a magazine that’s about fantasy to some extent and dreams, and an escape from real life. People don’t want to buy a magazine like Vogue to see what they see when they look in the mirror. They can do that for free.” Keep reading »

Fashion photographer Terry Richardson has released a statement (posted to at least Page Six and Huffington Post, so far) defending himself against the mounting complaints from young models who have accused the “porno-chic” photog of sexual abuse.

Earlier this week, a former model revealed on Reddit that she was allegedly sexually assaulted by Richardson at a photoshoot when she was 19. She later identified herself as 24-year-old Charlotte Waters and she is just one of many young models to speak out about his eerily-similar inappropriate behavior with young women. In 2010, Danish model Rie Rasmussen publicly confronted Richardson about allegedly abusing young models and Jezebel has gathered numerous stories of abuse from models and stylists here. (Styleite has a comprehensive timeline of Terry’s creepy behavior here.)

Richardson lashed out against the “witch hunt,” calling the “false allegations” nothing more than “Internet gossip.” Keep reading »

Former Model Charlotte Waters Outs Herself As Terry Richardson’s Alleged Victim

  • Charlotte Waters, a 24-year-old nurse’s assistant in L.A., has identified herself as the former model who took to Reddit to accuse Terry Richardson of sexual coercion and inappropriate behavior back in 2009 in his studio.

  • Missouri’s state House of Representatives advanced an anti-abortion bill to triple the waiting period for an abortion — to three days total. Such bills are horribly detrimental to low-income women and women who need to travel long distances for abortion care because it requires them to take more time off work, find more childcare and find a place to stay. Both Utah and South Dakota have three-day waiting periods as well. [ABC News] Keep reading »
