This week actress Michelle Monaghan turned it out for the Vogue event at Saks Fifth Avenue in NYC–they were celebrating the opening of their new and improved third designer-packed floor–along with a slew of other celebs including Anna Wintour fave Charlize Theron. Anyways, Michelle really pulled off the inner lower eyelid lining thing—and it ain’t that easy to do. So many people try lining the inner rim of their eyes and hate either the results (teeny-looking eyes) or the process (getting that pencil so freaking close to your eyeball!). But if you’re someone who doesn’t mind getting in there and working it with the eyeliner, check out my eye-widening liner tip, after the jump! (I swear your eye really will look ginorm.)

In an effort to let us commoners into Vogue‘s inner sanctum, the magazine recently posted “Five Days, Five Looks, One Girl: Indre Rockefeller.” Not unlike our current month of style project, “Five Days, Five Outfits” documents Anna Wintour assistant Indre’s clothing choices for five days. That, however, is where the similarities end.

“They have a sense of being at home, always wearing different robes and nightgowns. For me it’s one of the greatest shows ever. Helmut Lang loves ‘The Golden Girls’ too. He told me he used to rush home to watch it. It’s very uplifting and fresh, it just takes you away from the fashionable world.”
— André Leon Talley, Vogue’s editor-at-large, talks with Time Out New York about his favorite show. “The September Issue,” a feature-length documentary that goes behind the scenes of the Vogue offices during the creation of the September 2007 issue of the magazine — the largest of any magazine to date — opens today in New York City and nationwide on September 11.

“She’s been doing this for so long, surrounded by men. [...] There’s absolutely a feminist aspect to her. I think a lot of the attacks against her are misogynist. Men in business are totally cutthroat and nobody says bad things about them for it.”

“I also feel sorry for the other woman. I am sure she is a fine person. It can’t be fun for her, though I do sometimes question her judgment. If she knew the newspaper had those E-mails back in December, why did she want him to come in June? But I can’t go there too much. All I can do is pray for her because she made some poor choices.”
— Jenny Sanford, in an interview for the ever-important September issue of Vogue, speaking of Maria Belén Chapur, the Argentine woman with whom her husband, South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford, was discovered earlier this year to be having an extramarital affair.

Sienna Miller has a few “spots” that could use a bit of a makeover, or so says famed fashion photographer Mario Testino. We’ve all heard how her head was famously Photoshopped onto a different shot of her body for Vogue‘s 2007 September issue. Now, actual video clips of Mario Testino from R. J. Cutler’s documentary, “The September Issue,” (out August 28th!) have surfaced in which he explicitly points out every single thing on her that “needs” to be Photoshopped. [Defamer] Keep reading »
Ah, Charlize. I shake my fist at you. Always so perfect, dammit! Presumably to promote her upcoming movie, “The Road,” in which she plays a suicidal mother, Theron graces the cover of the September 2009 issue of Vogue and gasps: “I always reveal too much.” I’m sure that line is intended to pull in the guy readers along with the ladies, no? Meanwhile, Fashion Copious has the down and dirty deets on how the Fashion Magazine of Our Times is faring during the financial downturn, judging by its infamous September issue, and it ain’t pretty. Total pages and ad pages are down by around 300 pages each since 2007. Well, at least it won’t be so hard to lug the darn thing home on the subway. [Charlize Theron] Keep reading »
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 weeks ago and the readers there haven’t forgotten. Instead, I’m still getting diatribe-esque comments, many of which have been taken down because they were a hot mess that violates site commenting policy. Honestly, I didn’t think I was saying anything everyone wasn’t already thinking when I wrote that the idea of Susan Boyle on the cover of high-fashion mag Harper’s Bazaar was insane.
I may not be popular for saying this, but I, for one, would rather see models on the covers of magazines. Let me explain. Keep reading »
