These Half-Drag Portraits Will Make You Reconsider Everything You Know About Beauty

If you find T Magazine‘s Model-Morphosis as utterly transfixing as I do, then prepare to be stunned: photographer Leland Bobbé’s incredible new portraits will blow your mind. The ongoing series depicts men who masquerade as women as one dichotomous (and, it must be said, beautiful) persona — half masculine, half feminine, neither male nor female. Says the artist, “My intention is to capture both the male and the alter-ego female side of these subjects in one image … These are composed in camera and are not two separate images joined together.” The result is a powerful and welcome addition to the conversation of gender and a segue into Nietzche’s overman, “the man that goes beyond, who is beyond.” I’ll drink to that! Click through to check out the full series. Fair warning: there are many. [Refinery29 via Vogue Italia]

The September issue is a huge deal for fashion publications, so much so that an eponymous documentary chronicled its creation at Vogue headquarters. The total count of advertisement pages is indicative of the success of each title in the past year, and foretells what may come in the next. We’ve yet to even enter August and the numbers are already out: naturally, the upcoming Gaga-covered edition of Vogue comes out on top with a total of 658 ad pages, which marks both a 13 percent increase from last year and the magazine’s heftiest issue since 2008. At 400 ad pages, Elle will make publishing history with the highest total page count ever to be released by Hearst. The comparatively smaller Condé Nast-owned Allure clocks in with 131 ad pages, which makes it, as with Vogue, the largest issue since 2008. Keep reading »

If you’ve doubted Marion Cotillard’s star power at any point in the past few years since she starred as Édith Piaf in 2007′s breathtaking “La vie en rose,” now would be the time to reconsider. Not only has the pretty Parisian appeared in several films since then, but she’s directly atop the radar at this very moment with her role as Miranda Tate in the highly-anticipated “The Dark Night Rises,” out July 20. In light of her current (and, it should be said, totally deserved — she is a truly brilliant actress) Hollywood ubiquity, Marion scored not one, not two, but three magazine covers this August: Vogue, Vogue Paris, and Marie Claire UK will broadcast the Oscar winner’s beauty — and, with the curious exception of Vogue Paris, her equally recognizable beauty mark — on newsstands next month.

Every girl with aspirations of high fashion and even higher heels has their sights set on Condé Nast, and why shouldn’t they? It’s the stuff of “The Devil Wears Prada” dreams, a promised land where Wintour rules as supreme overlord and the streets are paved with, well, pavé. In light of the complaints filed by former interns who speak of slave labor and the long-running rumors that the job isn’t all it’s cracked up to be (on the contrary, it will make you crack), it’s getting harder and harder to secure a seat on Vogue‘s Byline Express. The Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design may sound like a fever dream I had when I was 16, but come January, such a school will be brick-and-mortar reality in central London. It vows to “establish itself as an important starting point for those who want to be tomorrow’s stars of the fashion industry,” which sounds pretty ambitious to me. Keep reading »

High fashion can be difficult to wrap one’s head around at times, but I feel like I understand it pretty well for someone who, you know, doesn’t actually wear it (I know, shocker) … and then there’s this shit. On the cover of Vogue! Ridiculous. Is it possible that I’m being unfair? Is this… cool? I have serious doubts. [Fashion Gone Rogue]

Inveterate bikini model and Florida girl Kate Upton was shot for this month’s Vogue (the one with Emma Stone on the cover) in actual clothes. And as she is wont to tell you, it was a very strange experience. “I’m from Florida, where your whole wardrobe is flip-flops, cutoffs and bikinis,” said Upton of the experience. Anna Wintour’s magazine set her up in a Joseph Altuzarra coat and Michael Kors boots, fully covering her swimsuit-ready frame. What do you think? Can Upton make the transition from bikini babe to couture cool? [NY Post]
