Where Have All the Models Gone?

In the furor over the surprisingly glam Susan Boyle Harper's Bazaar pics that came out recently, some of you may have forgotten early rumors that she'd be on the mag's cover rather than an inside feature story. Well, I wrote about the rumors for another site a few week…

Anna Wintour: Public Enemy #1 Of Discount Shoppers?

There's no denying the rush of joy (and feeling like you're getting away with theft) when you find an incredible designer piece at Loehmann's or Nordstrom Rack that you can actually afford. Of course, on the flip side, there's no more annoying feeling in life than when you've just spent your entire paycheck on a…

It’s 2009. Are Fashion Magazines Relevant Anymore?

Lady mags got you down? If so, you've got something in common with notorious Daily Mail columnist Liz Jones. Ms. Jones, who recently caused a stir with her confessional forays into "anorexia journalism," has recently moved on from eating disorders and is now focusing on a semi-related topic: fashion magazines, publications where she…

The 2010 Met Ball Is Gonna Be Mini

With the Metropolitan Musuem of Art cutting fourteen percent of it's staff (169 employees, to be exact) and the economy, well, continuing to not do so hot, there's a big, giant question mark as to next year's Vogue-sponsored Costume Institute Gala reports Fashion Week Daily. According to two uber-insiders, the…

“The September Issue”: Like “The Devil Wears Prada” But Mostly Real

ICON. LEGEND. FEARED. REVERED. ANNA F**KING WINTOUR, begins the trailer for The September Issue. (Well, minus "f**king," but we totally wouldn't have been shocked.)

Sienna Miller’s Love Advice

Sienna Miller is not exactly the first person I would run to for relationship advice. She has dated a range of dudes, from model rocker Jamie Burke to 40-something Welsh actor Rhys Ifans, but all of her relationships have failed. Take, for example, her romance with Jude Law. The two got engaged in 2004, but…

André Leon Talley Thinks You Look Like A “Beast” In High Heels

"Designers with an obsession for towering torture chambers, often poorly designed for the well-being of the foot, must get a reality check. I, for one, am over the mania for the high, high heel. Too many career women look like a herd of fashion beasts, aping one another in impractical shoes."—Vogue editor-at-large Andre Leon Talley…

Anna Wintour Won’t Put Rihanna On A Vogue Cover After Leaked Nudie Photos

It's no secret that Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is the Darth Vader of fashion. (Remember that "60 Minutes" segment where she fessed up to telling Oprah to drop twenty pounds for her 1998 Vogue cover and then called chubby Minnesotans "little houses.") But Anna has reached a whole new level of meaniness. According…

Anna Wintour Responds To Being Called A “Cold Bitch”

"60 Minutes" devoted a 13-minute segment to profiling Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue, this weekend. Journalist Morley Safer described Wintour as "a name that strikes terror in some, loathing in others, and transforms some into obsequious toadies." Not that his observation is incorrect, but, geez, what a way to introduce someone. It didn't…

You’re Hot. Your Mom Edits French Vogue. This Is What Your Apartment Looks Like.

Maybe the week after Mother's Day isn't the most tactful time to be envious of other people's mothers, but, really, we wish Carine Roitfeld, the editor of French Vogue, was our mom the other 51 weeks of the year. Oh, if only Carine had delivered us, our apartment might look more like daughter Julia Restoi…

Vogue’s Beyonce Cover, Racist?

Some folks have gotten their panties in a bunch over Beyonce's cover for the "Shape Issue" of Vogue. Beyonce is one of only five black women to grace the cover of Vogue since it was founded in 1892, but blogs like Jezebel and Sociological Images think the magazine was being sexist…
