This Hurricane Sandy Spread In Vogue Is Kinda Pushing It

Vogue isn't exactly known for its sensitivity to, um, sensitive issues, and that's fine. It is, after all, a fashion and society magazine, not The Atlantic. But every once in a while the international publication comes at us with something controversial, something so tone-deaf (see: longtime contributor Joan Juliet Buck's complimentary portrait of Syria…

“Diet Mom” Dara-Lynn Weiss Attempts To Justify Putting Her Dieting Daughter In The Pages Of Vogue

"I understand the desire to make a child feel beautiful at any weight. I truly advocate for size acceptance. The culture of body image upsets me and has tortured me personally. I do think we should be able to be different sizes but I draw the line at when it starts affecting her health." --…

Andre Leon Talley Interviews Quvenzhané Wallis, World Collectively Goes “Aww”

Vaunted Vogue editor Andre Leon Talley doesn't suffer fools -- either at his magazine job, or as a former judge on "America's Next Top Model." Which is why it's so sweet to see him shuffle so uncomfortably in his interview with pint-sized "Beasts of the Southern Wild" phenom Quvenzhané Wallis. Talley had the nine-year-old Nicki Minaj…

Don’t Tell Anyone, But Condé Nast Created A Mini-Magazine For Walmart

There are some things in life that just belong together. For instance: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup, Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne. I've only been to Walmart once, when I accompanied my then-boyfriend to purchase a Bear Grylls-brand camping knife, but the politically conservative megastore…

First Look: “In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye”

People who say they read Vogue for the articles are missing the point. Vogue is about fashion, fashion, fashion -- and the keepers of the fashion pages are the fashion editors. A new HBO documentary, "In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye," chronicles Vogue fashion editors past and present. In addition to well-loved Grace Coddington, "In Vogue" features interviews with past editor…

Anna Wintour Dispels Rumors Of A Memoir In A Rare Interview

So much has been said about Anna "Nuclear" Wintour, but she doesn't seem to say much herself. The longtime Vogue editor-in-chief conducts herself just about as privately as it gets, so when rumors flew last summer that she was in the process of writing a memoir, we had our doubts. After all, the…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards

On Tuesday, Vogue hosted the Council of Fashion Designers of America's annual fashion fund awards, bestowing glory and heaps of cash on one lucky designer. This year's mega winner is Greg Chait, the man behind the collection The Elder Statesman. But while Greg may have won all the money, there was another battle being fought…

Finally! Anne Hathaway’s Wedding Dress Revealed

Finally! Vogue has the first official look at Anne Hathaway's wedding dress from her nuptials with longtime beau Adam Shulman this summer. The custom Valentino is poufy and gauzy and more cream puff than I expected from the chic Miss Anne. Furious debate in the Frisky office ensued: Amelia thinks it's pretty (save…

It’s Official: That “Squishy Brick” Kate Upton Landed Her First Full “Vogue” Editorial

Kate Upton has weathered her fair share of critics in her brief career thus far, including an incident early this year in which Victoria's Secret runway caster Sophia Neophitou cruelly said of the then-teenager's look, "She's like a footballer's wife, with the too-blond hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money…

Rihanna Has Too Many Vaginas Around Her

"I have not been on a date in forever. Like two years. Haven’t gone to the movies, to dinner. Zero. I would love to go on a date. You don’t think that? I’m a woman. A young woman, vibrant, and I love to have fun. And I have too many vaginas around me at this point. Seriously,…

Vogue Excludes Women Novelists From Edith Wharton Spread

Why were there no women novelists in Vogue's Edith Wharton spread? [Slate] [Photo: Slate/Vogue] Female voters nationwide favor President Obama by 10 points, according to a poll released yesterday by NBC/Wall Street Journal. [Feminist.org] New Mexico briefly suggested women prove they were victimized by "forcible rape" in applications for childcare assistance.

Anti-Domestic Violence Groups Protest Vogue Homme’s Choking Cover

Groups that work to eradicate domestic violence and help survivors are protesting magazine behemoth Conde Nast over the lastest cover of Vogue Hommes International, on which the cover model is being choked.

First Look: Keira Knightley Wears A Weird Chanel Armwarmer For October’s “Vogue”

Isn't it nice to see Keira Knightley's pretty face adorning multiple magazine covers rather than someone like, say, Kim Kardashian? I jest, kind of, and I do know a few people who maintain that Keira is only marginally more talented than the reality star in question … but regardless, she's definitely more likable.

It’s Here! Anna Dello Russo’s Gorgeously Gilded Accessories Collection For H&M

It was only a matter of time before Vogue Japan editor-at-large and totally OTT fashionista Anna Dello Russo got to put her medal of approval on a line of her own, and it's only natural that she of the outrageous fascinators and tacky-goes-high fashion opulence would cut her design teeth on — what…

First Look: The First Issue Of Carine Roitfeld’s New Magazine Goes Public

It took hardly any time at all for Carine Roitfeld to find her footing outside of the Condé Nast empire. The fashion writer and stylist departed suddenly from Vogue Paris in 2010 following a ten-year tenure as editor-in-chief, citing a desire to concentrate on personal projects outside of the notorious magazine's "gilded bird cage"…

Lady Gaga Never Met Some Photoshop She Didn’t Love

This is Lady Gaga on the cover of Vogue, looking svelte and amazing and sort of vase-shaped. Only, this isn't what she actually looked like during the shoot -- at all. Not that she looked bad; she looked gorgeous. But come on -- if Gaga was actually built the way she appears on the cover…

Who Are The 10 Models With The Most Vogue Covers To Their Name?

This year's September issue of Vogue is, for lack of a better word, epic. It's, like, 1,000 pages, 600 of them ads, and not one of which includes a beauty spread. (I mean, come on, that's why I buy these damn magazines.) What it does include is an exhaustive history lesson in all things Vogue,…

Anna Wintour Talks Her First “Vogue” Cover In Honor Of The Magazine’s Anniversary

"[Israeli model] Michaela [Bercu] was wearing an haute couture Christian Lacroix jacket with a beaded cross … and stonewashed Guess jeans. The jacket was actually part of a suit, but the skirt didn’t fit Michaela; she had been on vacation back home in Israel and had gained a little weight. Not that that mattered. I…
