Anna Wintour Is One Fashionable Politician

Anna Wintour had a very special birthday yesterday. Not only did the Vogue editor turn 60 years old but President Obama hired her for a job! Don’t worry, Anna’s not leaving her masthead position any time soon, but she does have a new title to add to her resume. She’ll join fellow fashionista Sarah Jessica Parker on the President’s Committee for the Arts and Humanities. The job task ahead of her is all about giving Obama advice on how to bring the arts into society. We think she can handle that one. She’s already made a huge statement with Fashion’s Night Out, which was so popular that a sequel date set has been set. We certainly look forward to Anna’s projects as a part of the government, because if FNO was any indication, there could be a fashion national holiday in our future. Hey, getting a day off work to go shopping doesn’t sound so bad. [WWD] Keep reading »

H1N1 Is The Height Of Fashion

What’s the latest must-have for the forward-thinking fashionista? H1N1, if the latest provocative layout from photographer Steven Klein for Vogue Italia is to be believed. Previously, Klein has used everything from the Iraq war to the NSA to tell his fashion stories, and this new spread from the November issue is no exception. In it, flame-haired model Rianne ten Haken seems to be grappling with the consequences of living in a contagion-filled world. Surrounded by men in white masks, she ends up collapsed on the floor with no one to help her. Good thing she looks damn good with the swine flu. Check out more images after the jump. Keep reading »

Fashion’s Night Out—The Sequel

Did you go to Fashion’s Night Out in September? Well we did, and we had lots of fun (and even had the hangovers the next day to prove it). Of course, the question everyone asked after the Anna Wintour-organized extravaganza was “did it work?” because so much of the hype appeared less about shopping, and more about the parties and celebs. It took a while to assess, but now the reports are in and the answer is a resounding yes. WWD notes that 75 percent of attendees made a purchase that night. What this means: Fashion’s Night Out will be back next year for a repeat. Indeed, New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg has announced that FNO 2010 will be even bigger. What might draw more people out is a possible tax-free shopping day for the event (please?). This could be difficult to pass, but retailers are pressing for it. Will you go to Fashion’s Night Out next fall? In all likelihood, we will—why pass up a free all-access party? [WWD] Keep reading »

Taking Halloween As Seriously As A Wedding

I love Halloween. I want to believe that everyone loves Halloween — like it’s a universal Tim Burton-style Christmas — and that we all come together, unified, for the sake of weirdness and costumes, zombies, vampires, princesses, and gore. I’m torn, though, on whether I love it enough to take Vogue‘s costume suggestions. For the haute couture undead look that’s all the rage, they suggest booking a professional stylist. The people of MAC, Sephora, Nars, or Henri Bendel will make you fabulous for a price. Some of these ghastly makeovers run over $200. I didn’t even spend that much for my wedding up-do! Silly and frivolous or the expensive style solution for the biggest dress-up day of the year? What’s a ghoul to do? Keep reading »

Claudia Schiffer: Why Is There A Broom Up Your Butt?

You know, I’m all about the weird fashion layouts. Bathroom sex, sweaty armpits, black face. If it’s weird, bring it, as long as it isn’t boring. But I just can’t quite wrap my head around this Vogue Germany spread by Erwin Wurm starring supermodel Claudia Schiffer. In this photo, she appears to have a broom stuck up her butt. Um, why? Am I missing something? Can you help a sister out? Or maybe someone should help Claudia extract that broom from her bottom. [Fashion Gone Rogue] Keep reading »

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Anna Wintour

If you’ve ever wanted to be truly feared, we’ve got the costume for you. We’re not talking “scary” in the way that zombies or pre-Twilight vampires are. That’s child’s play. We’re talking grown women (and men) crying in closets in your wake. For that kind of terror, Vogue editor Anna Wintour is your only option. Keep reading »

Vogue’s “Nine” Cover Is A Hot Photoshopped Mess

Excuse me, Grace Coddington approved this? For the November issue of Vogue, Anna and Co. rounded up the female stars of the upcoming movie musical “Nine.” Four of them — Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz, and Kate Hudson — are on the cover together, but the overly airbrushed shot makes it oh-so-obvious that photographer Annie Liebovitz shot them separately and spliced them together in Photoshop. Regardless, the beach background is tragic, the fashion makes no sense in context, and they all look like wax figurines. Cover shoot FAIL. [Just Jared] Keep reading »

Yes, That’s A Vogue Editor In My Closet

After seeing “The September Issue,” Grace Coddington is kind of my new obsession. From her bright red curls to her adorable cats to her indescribable talent and determination as an editor of Vogue, she’s a true genius. So it really was only a matter of time before she was immortalized in some form. Cult tee company Deer Dana, creator of such brilliance as the Bruce Weber, Bill Cunningham, and Olivier Theyskens shirts, has now given Grace her very own T-shirt moment. And while the majority of the shirts are plain black and white, of course Grace’s flame red hair is appropriately completely accurate. They retail for $45, but now you’ll always have a bit of Grace in your life. [Deer Dana]

Coco Rocha Is Vogue Korea’s Legend Of Fall

The delightful Coco Rocha graces the cover of Vogue Korea’s October issue and stars in this “Legend of Fall” spread. In subdued hues — black, grays, blues, tans, and a few shocks of color — the 21-year-old Toronto native eschews this season’s urban warrior garb for pretty, tailored looks with a touch of bohemian flair. More from the editorial after the jump! Keep reading »

Anna Wintour’s Office: A Label-Whore Breakdown

Many of us have seen photos of Anna Wintour‘s office at this point—and it was most famously copied for “The Devil Wears Prada” (though she’s since redecorated to banish any similarities, we hear)—but what really makes up the chic space? Like, can we be label whores for a minute? Indeed, because Apartment Therapy has a piece-by-piece breakdown of its contents! (Based on the above screenshot from “The September Issue” and a few “60 Minutes” clips.) Check out all the interior details, after the jump!
