Here’s A Warning: Don’t Pretend To Work At Vogue

Here’s a lesson for everyone out there. If you’re looking for freebies, do not claim that you’re a Vogue editor. Emma Charlton did just that, and now she’s stuck in prison for three years. After convincing an unsuspecting man to marry her, she booked a wedding at the Slaley Hall Hotel in Northumberland, and claimed to be an editor for the fashion mag in order to earn perks for her nuptials. This isn’t her first foray into a career as a con artist, though. She was sent to jail in 2007 for stealing money from men who fell in love with her and sadly stole £126,387.90 from her grandmother after writing 19 checks from her checkbook. Sure, working in fashion is a desirable career — it comes with stylish clothes and parties — but the lying about working in the industry? Certainly not worth three years in prison. Become an intern and work your way up. [Telegraph] Keep reading »

Brooke Shields’ French Vogue “Lady Cops” Editorial Is Tacky

In what may very well be the saddest display of refusing to let the past go that we’ve ever seen, Brooke Shields posed for this ridiculous French Vogue “Lady Cops” editorial. Based on a made-up TV show, costarring Elaine Irwin and shot by Bruce Weber, the spread is an attempt at campiness that definitely falls flat. We feel awkward just looking at it. Both are hot older women, but there’s something to be said for aging gracefully. In that respect, this shoot is a total fail for Shields and Irwin. Unless you consider zebra bikinis and denim hot pants graceful, that is. At least it’s hilarious! More images after the jump. [Refinery29] Keep reading »

Rompers And More: Behind The Scenes At Tina Fey’s Vogue Shoot


How can anyone not love Tina Fey? She’s got the whole package: brains, beauty, talent, fame, fortune, an ability to remain sexy even while singing about ham. Just when you thought you couldn’t squeeze an ounce more of love into your heart, here comes this quick video of the comedic actress at her Vogue cover shoot. The statements in her interview might just influence the next direction of fashion: “Yeah, I’m almost 40 and I wore a romper today.” Power outfit? “Big shoulder pads, deep v-neck, hot pants, and roller skates.” No, but in all seriousness, Fey never fails to impress as you watch how professionally she poses for photographer Mario Testino, and how beautiful she looks in Prada.

Tina Fey Glams Up For “Vogue”

Tina Fey cleans up real good for Vogue, though the J.Lo-cut of that dress really doesn’t look like “her.” Still, the cover line, “American Style Idol: Blake Lively” is the far more questionable choice on this cover. [Vogue] Keep reading »

André Leon Talley Joins “ANTM,” We Predict The Apocalypse

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the world is coming to an end. Bitch all you want about greenhouse gases and a sloppy economy, but we have a far more telling sign to share: Vogue editor-at-large André Leon Talley has signed on for three seasons of “America’s Next Top Model,” taking Miss J’s spot on the judging panel. (He’ll be returning to the runway to make young girls from Iowa feel terrible about their inability to walk well in seven-inch heels.) If a high-up Vogue staffer getting in bed with a reality TV show in its 13th season is not a sign of an imminent and fiery end, then we really don’t know what is. Oh, wait, we do: Anna Wintour actually claims she’s OK with Talley’s decision to pimp himself — and, by extension, the Vogue brand– out to TV’s most played-out reality show. Keep reading »
