Carine Roitfeld is one of the most recognizable names in the fashion industry, but she doesn’t have the same notoriety here in America as she does overseas, where the former Vogue Paris mogul is an icon with equal leverage to that other famous editrix, Anna Wintour. The felinic fashionista is also responsible for somewhat of a dynasty, what with daughter Julia succeeding in her well-heeled footsteps. Carine recently announced the September debut of her long-awaited New York-based magazine, CR Fashion Book, so it’s safe to say that in almost no time at all, the Frenchwoman is poised to become an American presence to be reckoned with.

Vogue Scrubs Syria’s First Lady From Its Website

Oh Vogue, you are so very good with the fashions, but the politics? Not so much. The high fashion mag’s latest gaffe is a poorly-timed profile of Syrian First Lady Asma al-Assad, which ran in the mag’s March 2011 issue. It used to be searchable on Vogue’s website, but it’s since been taken off the site. Why, you might ask? Well, Asma’s husband, Bashar al-Assad, is responsible for a vicious crackdown on his own citizens that began last year — right around when the profile on Asma was published — and has resulted in more than 9,000 Syrians have died. And according to reports, Asma is far from innocent. She’s been characterized as a “Marie Antoinette” of the regime, shopping for jewelry and clothing online while the violent uprising occurred.

Our love of Michael Fassbender is well-documented but even we were surprised to see that he’s such a damn good editorial model. The Irish actor boasts a feature in the May issue of Vogue, starring alongside serious supermodel Natalia Vodianova in a series of stunningly gorgeous Jazz Age-inspired photographs shot by the legendary Craig McDean, and take my word for it: Fass is a natural, evoking a striking utilitarian sensibility while also giving a nod to the nouvelle vague. I’m never all that impressed by screen stars modeling with high-fashion faces, but these photos are beyond — check them out after the jump. [Vogue] Keep reading »

April is Earth Month, so naturally it’s the perfect opportunity for the fashion world (and, it goes without saying, the world over) to stand up and do what they can to take action. The latest venture into green comes from the CFDA and Vogue with Clean by Design, a new partnership with National Resources Defense Counsel. The council hosted a luncheon yesterday to announce the initiative, the premise of which could seem a bit strange — how does fashion directly impact the environment? Keep reading »

Fellow Franco-fashion-philes, rejoice: the days of throwing down a 10-spot for a gloriously glossy, sumptuously Gallic Vogue Paris and reveling in the sad irony of only being able to enjoy the pictures are over. I can’t say that there’s been many details out regarding the news since the announcement on Friday, but it did come straight from the mouths (keyboards, rather) of the Vogue.fr staff via the mag’s Twitter account. Clearly they’re aware of the magnitude of the situation, considering this is the statement they released:

France gave the US the Statue of Liberty, now we are taking Vogue.fr to the wider world… get ready for #VogueParisinEnglish

As an ugly American who doesn’t speak French very well, but is what you might call (tongue firmly in cheek, natch) fluent in taking long drags off of cigarettes in holders (cancer-meets-class!) while listening to Serge Gainsbourg, donning high heels and greasy hair and, yes, skimming an ancient issue of Vogue Paris, I couldn’t be more excitée. Merci, Emmanuelle! [NY Mag]
