Glamorous supermodel Kate Moss does the androgynous thing on the latest cover of Vogue Paris, where she evokes a Ziggy Stardust-era David Bowie. Moss is pretty hot, and Bowie’s not too bad either, so the combination of the two on one cover is pretty powerful.

“When women are in positions of power, and they’re featured in a women’s magazine like Vogue … they tend to be incredibly unfairly criticized. It’s an incredibly old-fashioned approach. Just because you’re in a position of power, and you look good and you enjoy fashion — does that mean you’re an idiot, or that it’s not seemly to be in a woman’s magazine? If a man is in GQ, they don’t get the same kind of criticism.”

– Vogue HBIC Anna Wintour on how women are unfairly judged for enjoying fashion. I wasn’t really aware that women were terribly criticized for being into fashion. Do you feel that women are judged harshly for loving clothes? Perhaps what Anna’s actually alluding to is the way that women’s fashion magazines aren’t taken seriously — because of their emphasis on materialism and consumerism? [Wall Street Journal]

Vogue Rips Off “America’s Next Top Model,” Sort Of

Remember when Tyra made the girls of cycle six of “America’s Next Top Model” pretend they were some broken down dolls? It looks like art is now imitating reality TV. In this spread for Vogue Italia – you know, the magazine that ANTM’s winner gets a spread in? – photographer Tim Walker shoots models Audrey Marnay and Kirsi Pyrhonen as different kinds of dolls. Et tu, Mr. Walker? 

What We Can Learn From Anna Wintour

When it comes to fashion, Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour is probably the most powerful woman in the world. It’s not just that she commands the pages of one of the most-loved fashion mags, or that she conceived and developed Fashion’s Night Out, it’s that she oversees the Council of Fashion Designer of Americas Fund, which supports emerging young designers. To win Wintour’s discerning approval is akin to being granted the keys to the fashion kingdom, and what she says absolutely goes on the pages of Vogue and beyond. So, we thought we’d take a moment to examine Wintour’s personal sartorial musings. How does the Queen of All Clothing actually dress? What can we learn from her style rules?
