Britney Spears Page 2
Is Britney gearing up for a comeback? If her cover for POP magazine is any indication, the answer is a very, very hesitant yes.
We give Taylor Momsen a hard time here on Styleite, but the truth is: she’s not alone. Bare midriffs, crotch-revealing skirts, overly exposed cleavage — there are no shortage of sartorial offenses to which young celebrities fall victim when climbing the golden ladder of fame.
Britney Spears’ former manager and current boyfriend Jason Trawick has accused the star of having a serious case Styleitis — the kind that involves not showering, not washing her clothes, and according to earlier photos, not washing her hair. But alas, she isn’t the first un-showered celebrity we’ve seen around.
Herein, we celebrate the most outrageous, show-stopping, and waggish of stage costumes. Thanks to artists like Liberace and David Bowie, our history of wearable spectacles stretches back to the era of glam and back to present day.
After ogling Lady Gaga‘s ethereal Vanity Fair September cover, we couldn’t help but scour the cover archives for some of nudity’s most celebrated moments — forever immortal on the front pages of fashion’s major publications.
Missed any fashion news this week? Our five-day retrospective should have you covered on everything from transgender model Lea T‘s spread in French Vogue to why the Mulleavy sisters stood up Michelle Obama.
Katy Perry says she has over 100 beauty products on her makeup counter, so it’s pretty hard to argue with her when she calls herself a “beauty whore.” And what’s a pop singer and summer hit-maker to do when you have an aforementioned title to live up to? Release your own fragrance, of course!
We know that Britney Spears is busy getting her life together, and we applaud her efforts. But no scandal or stress warrants this lack of attention to one’s personal appearance — especially if, for better or for worse, you’re in the spotlight as much as Britney is.
We understand that making Britney Spears look anything less than a mess is no easy task. Which is why we often cut magazines some slack when they shoot her. We can only imagine what the studio looks like when she gets done with it. But in this installment of Photoshop Experiments Gone Bad, we wish Cosmo would have been a tad bit less liberal with their magic wand.
Along with holding a #6 spot on Forbes 100 most powerful celebrities list, Britney Spears’ clothing line for Candie’s launched today — two days early!
You may remember that super-gorgeous, stir-creating French Elle in which iconic German lensman Peter Lindbergh captured the likes of Eva Herzigova, Ines de la Fressange, and a slew of European actresses with little to no makeup (as if they needed it) and minimal photoshop work. Word is, Lindbergh — ever the photographic proponent of all things au natural — is at it again, training his lens on models in a similar spread for the French glossy this week.
Britney Spears has released the original and unretouched images from the photo shoot for her Candies campaign to allow a side by side comparison with the final, airbrushed images actually used in the ads.
Once upon a time, the cover ladies of fashion’s most important and influential magazines were referred to as Supermodels. But with the advent of tabloids and the obsession with celebrity culture, fashion magazines steered away from model-covers and opted for actresses, musicians, and socialites instead. And then Kate Moss graced the cover of W’s September Issue, Linda Evangelista the cover of November, and now this month’s Vogue features a decidedly 90s-inspired Gisele Bundchen.
