A job at Vogue? No, thank you. But we would love these two pint-sized dolls of editor Anna Wintour and creative director Grace Coddington. Barneys New York commissioned tiny Anna and Grace to be auctioned off on CharityBuzz.com, beginning August 31st, to benefit the NYC AIDS Fund. The anime-eyed pair took two weeks to make and artist Andrew Yang even trimmed Anna’s bob himself! [NY Times] Keep reading »

It seems entirely possible that Lindsay Lohan never met a camera she didn’t like. In the most recent issue of Vogue Italy, LiLo does Hollywood chic for fashion photographer Ellen von Unwerth. Here, we get to see what Lohan does at home: lights her cigarette using a gas stove, lounges about while journaling, and single-handedly attempts to keep the animal print trend alive. “I made terrible mistakes, but from whom I learned much,” Lohan told the magazine, according to Google Translate. “Probably why I’m still alive.” Well, the zebra boots aren’t that bad, girlfriend.

On the other hand, is a well-clad model slathered in fake crude oil posed on the rocks a beautiful sight to behold? See more of the pics after the jump. Keep reading »
