Lady Gaga Never Met Some Photoshop She Didn’t Love

Open Letter To Gaga

This is Lady Gaga on the cover of Vogue, looking svelte and amazing and sort of vase-shaped. Only, this isn’t what she actually looked like during the shoot — at all. Not that she looked bad; she looked gorgeous. But come on — if Gaga was actually built the way she appears on the cover of Vogue, she wouldn’t be able to walk, and she’d tip over all the time. Check out a video of the shoot, after the jump!

This year’s September issue of Vogue is, for lack of a better word, epic. It’s, like, 1,000 pages, 600 of them ads, and not one of which includes a beauty spread. (I mean, come on, that’s why I buy these damn magazines.) What it does include is an exhaustive history lesson in all things Vogue, spanning from the magazine’s very society-mag roots in 1892 to the upper echelon, high fashion-driven, Anna Wintour-helmed incarnation of today. In its 120-year history, they’ve featured a number of models on the cover more than once, but only an illustrious few have landed the coveted spot in double digit figures. Behold, the ten most frequent cover girls of all time — the answers may surprise you, but then again, maybe not. Keep reading »

“[Israeli model] Michaela [Bercu] was wearing an haute couture Christian Lacroix jacket with a beaded cross … and stonewashed Guess jeans. The jacket was actually part of a suit, but the skirt didn’t fit Michaela; she had been on vacation back home in Israel and had gained a little weight. Not that that mattered. In fact, it only served to reinforce the idea to take couture’s haughty grandeur and playfully throw it headlong into real life and see what happened … Afterwards, in the way that these things can happen, people applied all sorts of interpretations: It was about mixing high and low, Michaela was pregnant, it was a religious statement. But none of these things was true. I had just looked at that picture and sensed the winds of change. And you can’t ask for more from a cover image than that.”

Anna Wintour took to Vogue‘s Internet presence on the eve of the magazine’s 120th anniversary to reminisce on her beginnings as editor, and also to divulge a little secret. Her first cover, November 1988, beckoned a new frontier: it broke the canon of past versions (a model wearing jeans on the cover of the most grandiose magazine was a novel concept!) and reinforced that Wintour wasn’t one to hesitate in revolutionizing the standard formula. I’m actually pleasantly surprised by Anna’s positive attitude toward wreaking havoc in the halls of couture and embracing a model that didn’t fit in a sample size (well, at that very moment, for what it’s worth). Israeli food is delicious. [Vogue]

Best Dancing Ever!
WERK!

First things first, Happy 54th Birthday, Madonna! And now, onto Shaun Sperling and his Bar Mitzvah voguing. WERK! He was the belle of his ball back in 1992. That button down. Those moves. I need to know where Shaun is now so we can be best friends. While Shaun was becoming a man in suburbs of Chicago, I was becoming a woman in Phoenix, Arizona. Maybe Shaun would be impressed to know that I hired hip hop street dancers as the main attraction at my Bat Mitzvah. Or that I sang “That’s What Friends Are For” with my mom’s manicurist as a “gift” to all my guests. Yes I did. I need to find the video. [Gawker]

Lady Gaga tweeted about the inspiration behind her Vogue cover. “Who else sees me channeling RuPaul on the COVER of VOGUE. If only I was as fierce as you bitch. I did try to come for you with that weave,” she said. I get it. I mean, haven’t we all had a RuPaul channeling moment? Sometimes when I’m walking down the street in high wedges, I imagine I’m Ru strutting it up on the catwalk. Of course, some genius on Tumblr made this. WERK! [WOW]

Style Retrospective: The Fashion Bravery Of Anna Piaggi

RIP Anna Piaggi
The fashion legend has died at age 81. Read More »

Muse and Vogue editor Anna Piaggi passed away earlier this week at 81, a style innovator and rebel to the last. Piaggi’s wild style put her in the ranks with other non-traditional fashion icons, like Zandra Rhoades, Isabella Blow and Anna Dello Russo. Her aesthetic was rooted in exaggerated forms and extensive layering, paired with her signature accessory — the top hat.

In 2006, Piaggi’s genius was recognized with an exhibition at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, and she counted Karl Lagerfeld and Vivienne Westwood among her close friends.

Above, we’ve selected several of our favorite, most outrageous Piaggi looks.
