Harry Potter isn’t afraid to put it all out there. Daniel Radcliffe, who starred as the magical teen titan Harry Potter, earlier this week admitted he has neurological disorder, dyspraxia, which affects his coordination. But he can still cast a spell on you! Just check out his pony play spread in the September issue of Vogue. He’s riding horses and they’re all bareback — giddy up! Although the weird fetal/grandpa shot creeps us out, we’ll blame it (like the Miley Cyrus photo controversy) on famous photographer Annie Leibovitz. Sure, he says he stripped down to promote the new Broadway play he’s horsing around in — Equus — but we’ll take any excuse to see this barely legal babe in the buff! [Trend Hunter] Keep reading »
While all the techies were clamoring for the new iPhone last Friday, fashionistas were trying to secure Vogue Italia‘s monumental “Black Issue” — all of the featured models are Black and all the featured content addresses Black women. But don’t fret if you haven’t gotten your copy yet. Conde Nast has increased distribution by 40 percent in the U.S. and Italian copies earmarked for return will be sent to the U.S. The company will also print an additional 10,000 copies to keep up with demand for the issue. Cheers to Vogue Italia for taking this giant leap toward diversity. Now let’s hope special issues like this won’t be necessary in the future. And we’ll be watching the runways in September to see diversity in practice. [WWD] Keep reading »
I could honestly not give a poop about tennis, but I did go to a US Open game once and it was kind of amazing how hushed the crowd gets during a match — you can hear a pin drop, not to mention every grunt out of the players’ mouths. Anyway, I was kind of interested in Wimbledon this year though, mainly because I am so sick of reading about Roger Federer in Vogue and seeing him sitting front row at every fashion show because of the crush Anna Wintour has on him. I kind of hate a guy who always wins, except maybe Tiger Woods, because he is too sexy to hate. So when Rafael Nadal engaged in the battle to end all battles with Federer yesterday and managed to pull out a win, I was like, “Damn, that is one fine piece of chorizo.” He’s Spanish. Spanish sausage. Get it? Keep reading »
I can’t remember the last time I picked up a lady mag and saw an African-American woman on the cover that wasn’t Halle Berry. The beauty and hair advice doled out in these magazines is targeted at white women unless otherwise noted and the major runway shows are pitifully powder white (Eastern-European is very in). It’s sucky, to say the least. Vogue Italia decided to do something about it, declaring their July issue “The Black Issue” — all of the featured models would be Black and all the featured content would address Black women. This is all fine and dandy on a purely surface level I suppose, except that by making this issue “special” they’ve defined all other, white-centric issues as the usual and the norm. Rather than having more women of color in every issue, targeting a single issue at one ethnic group doesn’t really do anything to increase diversity, now does it? That’s weak.

Not sure if you want to spend $3.99 on this month’s Vogue? Don’t worry, we’ve got Wendy Felton, Editor of GlossedOver.com, here to tell you exactly what’s up on the sex, love, and relationships front in each month’s crop of lady mags.
It’s wedding season! Women’s magazines have put the focus on marriage this month, bursting with altar-centric advice—from dating him to divorcing him. Here’s the lowdown:
Impulsive brides? Who can be impulsive when there’s so much to buy before getting married? That is, if any woman is still willing to walk down the aisle after reading all the melancholy tales of marriage in this month’s magazines.
Even practically perfect in every way celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow occasionally suffer from the ho-hum suckishness of life. The actress tells the May issue of Vogue that she battled post-partum depression after the birth of her son Moses. She suspects missing out on her usual accupuncture routine may have been the cause. God, this reminds me of how I just get the worst mood swings when I don’t get make it to my weekly Reiki session, you know what I mean, ladies?! [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
Holy controversy Batman! I am an unabashed lover of toe cleavage — that little to major peek of toe that sometimes shows in low-cut high heels — and usually prefer a little cleave rather than none at all. But I was surprised to discover that there are people out there who are avidly opposed to toe cleavage in all it’s forms, from just a hint of big toe crook to all five toe bases exposed in all their glory. Of course, there are others who totally fetishize toe cleavage, like the person behind the blog Perversions of the High-Heeled Pump, who posts tons of celebrity pictures of celebrity toe cleave, not to mention vaguely creepy videos. In my opinion, I think a little toe cleavage is very sexy, and the fashion industry agrees with me. According to Wikipedia, “‘toe-cleavage shoes sans stockings’ are part of the ‘unwritten dress code’ of the ‘Voguette’, as dictated by the magazine’s longtime editor in chief Anna Wintour — ‘even in the bitter New York winter’.” And Manolo Blahnik famously said, “the secret of toe cleavage, a very important part of the sexuality of the shoe is that you must only show the first two cracks.” Word. But what about guys? Are they cognizant of toe cleavage? And if so, how do they feel about it? After the jump, thoughts from The Sensitive Guy, The Hipster Guy, and The Experienced Guy.

Hillary Clinton is trying to become the first female president, fighting her way for a sacred slot every young girl has dreamed about. Yet thereâ€™s been an appalling glut of woman on woman crime in the media. The way some female journalists are responding, youâ€™d think Hillary is running for Americaâ€™s Next Top Model.
Vogueâ€™s reigning diva, Anna Wintour, has lashed out in her latest “Letter from the Editor”, filling it with fashion advice for Hillary as retaliation for her refusal to do a photo spread for the magazine. Clinton had been featured in the publication before, both as a First Lady and then again when she became a Senator, but this time Hillary declined because she is afraid of looking “too glamorous” or “elitist” to voters. We’ll set Wintour straight, after the jump… Keep reading »
