Elle Magazine Page 1
Taylor Swift may have nabbed the cover, but Kim Kardashian co-stars in the March issue of ELLE. Unfortunately for Kim, it sounds like stylist Nicola Formichetti didn’t have the easiest time pulling clothes for reality star.
After a slew of departures this spring, the Elle masthead was starting to look pretty bare. Now, EIC Robbie Myers is slowly but surely filling those spots, starting with new hires Carmen Borgonovo and Lori Goldstein.
The fashions at Elle‘s Women In Hollywood Celebration last night were quite a treat, and leading ladies like Emma Stone, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Jessica Parker, and more worked the red carpet in some amazing ensembles.
Kim Kardashian has been on the cover of pretty much fashion and entertainment magazine in America, and on more than a few around the world. But Elle magazine creative director Joe Zee says the reason you’re not likely to see her on the cover of his magazine is because she just doesn’t do anything.
It takes a village to raise a child, and last night some of the fashion tribe assembled at Lincoln Center to celebrate the next generation of design genius at Elle Fashion Next.
For over a year there’s been speculation that Hearst, one of America’s largest magazine publishers, really, really wanted to buy Elle from its French parent company Lagardere. Today, news broke that the two companies admitted they’ve been working to make a deal happen.
In today’s StyleDish, Beyonce gets enough Birkins to buy a boat, Queen Elizabeth II gets yelled at for wearing fur and Kate Middleton gets waxed.
It was really only a matter of time before Donatella Versace asked Mad Men star January Jones to front one of her campaigns. They’ve been an inseparable pair ever since the designer tapped the actress to star in an Elle spread featuring her dresses last spring. Or, at least as inseparable as they could get through Jones wearing Versace almost everywhere she went.
Elle‘s December 2010 cover has some nouns that we normally like. Jessica Alba is a pretty woman. Christian Dior is a gorgeous international brand with an amazing history. And when has sunshine ever not been a good thing? Put them together, though, and what you have is a cover so unfortunate that it doesn’t even make sense.
Elle‘s 25th anniversary issue has been met with a little controversy — some of which we’ve harbored right here on Styleite — but we’ll be honest: The short film photographer Carter Smith made featuring the 25 game changers and revolutionaries from the October issue is really quite charming.
Far be it from us to say what did or didn’t happen during Elle magazine’s October cover shoot with Gabourey Sidibe. But to hear Elle’s editor Robbie Myers tell it, nothing bad happened and the media needs to leave the magazine alone.
Elle magazine’s 25th anniversary issue is stirring up a bit of controversy. The magazine chose four celebs — Gabourey Sidibé, Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried and Lauren Conrad — to grace their own individual covers. But while all the ladies look gorgeous, some people are taking issue with two aspects of Sidibé’s cover, in particular.
Reem Acra, she of the unapologetically embroidered evening gowns and bridal dresses, announced this morning that she will produce a line of lower-priced clothes for HSN.
This week sure was something! Threats of trademark lawsuits for Madonna and Beyonce, exclusive photos of Bill and Hillary Clinton dancing, and a Summer’s Eve ad that will leave you speechless. All that (and a chance to win $485 worth of Guerlain beauty products) after the jump.
On September 9th, one day before Fashion’s Night Out and the world’s largest fashion show hosted by Anna Wintour, Elle will fill the David Koch Theater at Lincoln Center for a show of their own.
Last week, someone claiming to be Elle magazine editor-in-chief Robbie Myers tweeted the word “Hi” at Joe Zee, the magazine’s creative director. The problem, though, was that the person behind @TheRobbieMeyers wasn’t actually her.
We’ve heard rumors that Elle‘s creative director extraordinaire Joe Zee is pondering making a run for the Hollywood hills in the hopes of nurturing his fledgling television career, and the videos Elle keeps posting are only adding fuel to our speculative flame. In the latest installment, Zee is still wearing the Chanel fur suit, but this time he’s challenging Elmo to a dance-off. The clip is short, sweet, and totally hilarious.
As if we needed a reason to love Joe Zee more. In between filming The City, creative directing one of our favorite magazines, and tweeting up a storm, Zee managed to find the time to don one of Karl Lagerfeld‘s crazy fur suits from his F/W 2011 collection and wander around New York City in the middle of a heat wave. We love a fashion editor who can laugh at themselves.
Today, the New York Times covered Elle magazine’s highly visible success at utilizing the power of television. “People judge everything you do in fashion. Everything,” Robbie Myers, Elle’s editor in chief, told the Times. So to continue where they left off, here are six reasons we think Elle has got it going on — plus one piece of constructive criticism.
Get your allowance ready, tweens! It looks like Elle has caught Twilight fever. Kristen Stewart is next month’s Elle cover girl. The usually frowning Kristen appears looking a bit more light-hearted than usual — she’s sporting a half smile rather than a soulless gaze — but as always, Stewart looks awkward and out of place against the pink and white cover. But we’d expect nothing less.
