Kate Moss, fashion goddess to many, is reportedly playing a Hindu goddess in a new film by Baillie Walsh called KM3D-1 (Kate Moss 3D Part 1?). Specifically, she is playing “Kali, the all-powerful Hindu goddess” and the short film will make its premiere Thursday at Haunch of Venison London in partnership with AnOther Magazine and Beefeater 24. Begging the question: will Kate be wearing a meat dress? (Kidding! As if Kate needs a meat dress to stand out.)
New York’s fashion magazine industry got a shot in the arm earlier this year when it was announced that Stefano Tonchi was leaving T the NYT Style magazine to take over W, and Sally Singer was subsequently departing Vogue to take over his spot.
After a week of sitting with Stefano Tonchi‘s new W (I live in Brooklyn, magazines come late) I can say with assurance I am impressed. Tonchi, who was hired away from T, the New York Times style magazine last March, has concocted what on first pass feels like a combination of the the New Yorker meets Vanity Fair meets French Vogue. What a relief.
Gwyneth Paltrow is on the cover of August’s Vogue, which would be less than interesting if not for the fact that she was interviewed for the feature by longtime Vogue foodwriter Jeffrey Steingarten. As Stengarten is not a celebrity feature writer I figured there was a chance Vogue readers could possibly be in for an celebrity article that had not been varnished to nauseating perfection by PR hacks. And in the end, I was right!
Jimmy Kimmel Live interviewed members of both teams during a press day at the NBA Finals. Their line of questioning didn’t have much to do with basketball, and a lot to do with Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and The Other One.
We all have our dream jobs. Things we wish we could do, things we wish we could have thought up first. Famed designer Jean Paul Gaultier is no exception.
Miley Cyrus’ controversial Vanity Fair spread may have been in the name of art, but there was nothing artistic about cavorting around a stripper pole on an ice cream cart in shortie-shorts doing oversexed dance moves at Monday’s Teen Choice Awards. Miley’s fame and fan base will not be affected by Monday’s dance. But the shift into overdrive of Miley’s sexualization cannot go unnoticed. From VF all the way to the stripper pole, this girl is growing up fast. Or being grown up fast.
