As Fashion Indie’s hilarious blogger Lester Brathwaite explains, there are 10 key poses to strike if you want to get into Vogue. This one’s called the “Couture Hunch,” and it’s easily achieved by simply folding your body into itself. Says Brathwaite, “What you’re thinking: I’m so thin that to prevent my ribs from caving in on themselves I have to hold them in place. I may have dropped a lung while in mid-hunch, but I dare you to tell from my face.” Model on! [Fashion Indie]

“Some of our memories are shared. We don’t know what actually happened to whom. One of us was stung by a bee, but we can’t remember who, because we both felt it.”
– Mary-Kate Olsen on her trippy twin connection to Ashley in Vogue. When their shared brain reads Simone de Beauvoir, does only one of them have to read for the other to absorb it? My money’s on Ashley. She’s the smart one, right? I still always get them confused. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
Let’s all take a minute to appreciate how straight-out-of “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” Rihanna looks on the April cover of Vogue, peeking out from behind her red hair with just one eye. I think this image is stunning, even if the way she’s holding her body looks like she just stole your watch and is slinking away with it. Keep reading »
Holler! Lady Gaga is on the cover of the March issue of Vogue, looking gorgeous in a cotton candy pink wig on a seafoam green background. But while that’s pretty, I am so obsessed with this image from inside the magazine, shot by Mario Testino. Gaga should have this blown up to wall size and hung up in her apartment, stat.
Oh, and see that cover after the jump. Keep reading »
Vogue may be the biggest fashion magazine in the world, with the most talented photographers and retouchers at their disposal, but even they are capable of tragic Photoshop butchery. Poor cover girl Kristen Stewart. She’s been rendered almost unrecognizable in one of the photographs featured in the February issue. Surely Anna Wintour didn’t approve this?!

We like to think that we are nice people. So when we heard that French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld was leaving her job for bigger and brighter things, we didn’t second-guess her, but instead said, “Yay! Good for you! Have fun! Mazel tov!” Just because we’re nice like that and aren’t going to make any accusations. Not that we weren’t thinking them … Racked is reporting that there’s quite the rumor going around about Carine’s departure … Keep reading »
Apparently, in October, Vogue ran a story that gave “practical advice on how to do as New Yorkers do — and dare to bare your legs this winter …” We’re not sure which NYC women they were talking about exactly, because as far as we understand this is a practice for crazy people. Now the U.K. version of Vogue is discussing how to transition this trend to winter, so you can stay bare-legged through February (we literally just got colder thinking about this). Their suggestions: cozy up with fur, look for skirts with longer hemlines, and lastly to “take tips from the seasoned experts in New York and in the North.” As to what these additional “tips” are, that’s left unanswered.
As you can probably guess, for us, this trend is met with a big, fat “why?” Barring super fancy events, we’d be reluctant to give up protection of the cold on any other day. What do you think of going tights-less in winter? A cool idea? Or an idea that’s literally too cool? [Vogue UK] Keep reading »
The last time we checked in with (former?) plus-sized model Crystal Renn, she was having an orgy with a plate of spaghetti. Now, she’s gone a few steps further down the weird trail with a new editorial in Vogue Paris — the December issue is guest-edited by designer Tom Ford — in which she plays a plastic surgery victim and frolics with young men. She also bares her cooch and generally looks like a loon. Check out some more examples of Crystal gone wild after the jump. Keep reading »
Why Vogue scored Angelina Jolie for their December 2010 cover and then photographed her in this awkward pose I do not understand. She looks good; I just don’t get the whole exposed bustier with weird shadowing thing. In any case, the woman has a movie to promote, and that is “The Tourist,” in which she costars with Johnny Depp. In the profile, she reveals that love-mate Brad Pitt is “extremely handsome and the most sexy,” her first son Maddox basically raised her, and tomboy daughter Shiloh recently found a dead bird and asked if she could keep it as a pet. Your daily dose of Brangelina has now been sated. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
We’ve already shown you some of the shots from Anne Hathaway‘s cover story for Vogue‘s November issue, and now here’s the video that reveals what went down behind the scenes in Paris where the actress posed for photographer Mario Testino. Ugh, what a terrible time! Wearing couture gowns, visiting some of the city’s most beautiful sights, and generally looking glamorous. I am so glad I don’t have her life. Pass me another bagel, extra lox, please. [Racked] Keep reading »
