Katy Perry Looks Uncharacteristically Boring On Her First Vogue Cover

Man, they’ll really hand out these Vogue covers to just about anyone these days. It’s not like Anna Wintour hasn’t put an actual model on there in eons, or anything. Katy Perry is the latest pop star of dubious cultural significance to land the coveted spot, featuring what I feel like is a fairly awkward…

Yes, Blackface Is Still Offensive, Vogue Netherlands

You might have been sitting at your desk at work wondering to yourself, “Hmm, I wonder if it’s a good idea now for fashion magazines to hire Caucasian fashion models and smear their faces in blackface paint.” I am here now to put your mind at ease. No, it’s still not a good idea.  You…

Michelle Obama Looks Stiff On Her New Vogue Cover

How do we feel about Michelle Obama’s latest Vogue cover?  She’s lovely, of course, but her pose looks kind of stiff. It brings to mind those senior year school photos you have to take where you pose awkwardly, right?
Guys. They are getting rid of Google Reader. I can’t deal. [Google Blog]
But…

Well Played: When Anna Wintour’s Smiling, The Whole World Smiles With Her

These photo of notoriously purse-lipped Anna Wintour laughing and smiling while walking around Milan are making me giddy with glee. It’s like in high school when you work so hard all year to make your stone-faced digital media teacher show any sign of emotion, and after 8 months of effort, you make a random MS…

Anna Dello Russo Is Still Dressing Like A Lunatic, So All Must Be Right With The World

This is what Vogue editor Anna Dello Russo wore to New York Fashion Week on Thursday. I repeat, this is what Vogue editor Anna Dello Russo wore to New York Fashion Week on Thursday. She’s deftly combined Raver Explosion with Old Man Golf Chic. And no, neither of those things are real. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

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 Syrian first

“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 definitely did not strike…

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 woman only…

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 for the…

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 ca…

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,…
