Not only is Vogue Paris considered one of the most influential fashion magazines in the world, it’s also made a name for itself with original, inspiring, and occasionally controversial photography. But instead of featuring a big-named photographer and a high-concept shoot for its annual calendar, the 2013 edition is just full of repeat images.
The W LOVE Hangover Ball was billed as an evening “inspired by the legendary New York vogueing scene,” so you’d be forgiven for thinking the red carpet would draw the most outré crowd of the evening. However that dubious honor definitely rests with the ARIA Awards in Sydney, Australia, which played host to a slew of outfits featuring cutouts, neon, and sideboob a’plenty.
Last night was a big night for big screen stars in New York City, with the 22nd Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards going on downtown at Cipriani Wall Street, while uptown Brad Pitt‘s friends and fans joined him for a screening of his new film Killing Them Softly. But who was best dressed in the Big Apple?
Anja Rubik recently launched her own magazine, 25, which has a very interesting twist — it explores the subject of erotica from women’s point of view. And rapper/designer/filmmaker Kanye West made a trippy video to accompany the first issue.
Last night, Penelope Cruz, Anja Rubik, and Ricky and Ralph Lauren attended a screening of Woody Allen‘s To Rome With Love in New York, while Kristin Davis, Olivia Munn, and Jane Fonda walked the red carpet for the premiere of HBO‘s new series The Newsroom in Los Angeles. Which coast had better fashion?
A dozen days have past since the start of Cannes Film Festival, which in Getty Images language means 221 events and 21026 images. And in our language means a veritable army of red carpet gowns.
Cannes you handle all this glamour? (sorry.)
Fancy parties and fancier premieres at Cannes brought out amazing dresses — well, some amazing dresses.
We never thought we’d end up with so much Prada on the worst dressed list for an event in honor of the brand, but it just goes to show that label isn’t everything. On an evening where everyone’s watching (and werking) there really is no room for error.
At last night’s DKMS Linked Against Blood Cancer Gala in New York City, the ladies turned it out on the red carpet.
It was a quiet night at the Tribeca Film Festival, where Jennifer Morrison, Jamie Chung, and ESPN’s Erin Andrews were fete-ing new films in varying degrees of premiere-appropriate attire. Uptown, ladies who lunch mixed with ladies who run makeup companies who mixed with models, designers, and television hosts for the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s annual spring ball, which was sponsored by Gucci and which had a perhaps unofficial dress code of black and white and gold. Also, Cameron Diaz went out in Las Vegas.
Happy Shark Week, everyone! As you all well know, it’s Discovery Channel‘s annual Shark Week, so naturally, we felt that the only proper way to celebrate was to bring you the second installment of “When Sharks Attack, Fashion Edition.” And really, what better way to celebrate than to photoshop sharks into our favorite fashion photos?
Models Anja Rubik and Sasha Knezevic finally tied the knot this weekend in an intimate, ceremony in Mallorca, Spain. And the bride, ever the fashion plate, wore a custom Pucci dress that was business in the front and a party in the back.
The Fashion Spot recently revealed its rankings for this year’s “World’s Top Model” and Polish-born Anja Rubik took home the number one spot. Does being the world’s top model also make her its most influential?
In the new ad campaign for DKNY Original fragrance, Anja Rubik makes out with a hot model named Sasha Knezevic, who she happens to be engaged to. The making out occurs on top of a taxi in the middle of a crowded New York street. In a winking bit of marketing, Anja and Sasha recreated the cab-top kiss in real life in Times Square. Kind of brilliant, no?
i-D magazine’s spring issue is here and based on the cover alone, it might be their best yet. Dubbed “The Exhibitionist Issue,” it features Lady Gaga and Anja Rubik as two of their usual plentiful cover stars. But while we love the styling of each of them (Gaga in Mugler, wearing her now signature facial prostheses and Anja with a nose ring and blood red lips), the defining feature of each image is the simplicity of the cover line.
In an interview with Frockwriter, Anja Rubik revealed that although the Pirelli Calendar is a dream job for most models, she turned down the opportunity to do the 2009 calendar because it was shot by Terry Richardson. Not because she was afraid of Richardson — Rubik said he never made her feel uncomfortable on the handful of occasions they’d worked together before (like with that surprisingly tasteful set of ads for Mango). What she was really concerned about was what the iconic calendar might look like after being filtered through his porny, button-pushing vision. But she was certain that he was a great photographer who would make a great calendar. Yes. We are just as confused as you are.
We generally lament Terry Richardson‘s gratuitously porny ad campaigns, which is why the controversial photog’s latest work is so shocking. Richardson shot Anja Rubik for Mango‘s fall/winter 2010 ad campaign, and the results are so uncharacteristically not porny that we almost can’t believe Richardson shot them.
In what we have to imagine is an unprecedented coup, that sparkly gold Balmain dress has landed a seventh cover. Yes, count it: seven. The same dress that Natalia Vodianova infamously wore sans smooth legs is now also on the cover of December’s British Elle, worn by Anne Hathaway. Did we mention this is the dress’s seventh cover appearance? (That’s almost double the amount of covers that appliqued Miu Miu number had!) Like we said, unprecedented.
