We walked in to the Glamour magazine party at burlesque bar-meets-bottle service club The Box just as The Ting Tings began performing “That’s Not My Name”. It was perfect timing because, to be honest, that’s the only song of theirs we know. No matter though, because judging by the crowd — which included editor in chief Cindi Leive, W’s Stefano Tonchi, reality star-turned-nebulous fashion personality Olivia Palermo, Revenge star Emily van Camp, and Coco Rocha – the band was not lacking for fans.
Anyone who thinks Glamour‘s talking iPad cover is slightly creepy would do well not to anything about it to the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Cindi Leive. As far as she’s concerned, it’s too cool for school.
So the ladies at Glamour got on the phone with Troy Palomalu, that guy who has the big hair who plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The man with the million-dollar hair (it’s insured because he’s a Head and Shoulders spokesman) talked about his family life, his teammates and, perhaps most importantly, how he keeps his thick, dark, three-foot-long strands of hair in such shiny and enviable condition. And don’t worry — you’re not the only one who’s mad that his hair is so pretty. His wife is pretty ticked off, too.
Last night’s Glamour Women of the Year Awards had Carnegie Hall bursting with so much girl power, it’s amazing the place didn’t explode. Last night marked the awards’ 20th birthday, and the star-studded event certainly did that milestone justice.
Glamour’s annual Women of the Year Awards isn’t just a pat on the back to well-known women who make a difference when they write large checks. It’s a moment when the world takes notice of what women famous and not-so-famous have done not just for other women, but for the world at large.
Earlier Thursday morning, two big rigs collided onto a dirt path off of I-80. But the crash in and of itself isn’t what’s causing buzz.
While Vogue may still be looking for a replacement for Sally Singer, Glamour has snapped up T magazine’s Anne Christensen to be their new executive fashion director, replacing Xanthipi Joannides who left last month. Some context: Christensen was largely considered the frontrunner to replace Stefano Tonchi as EIC of T, but the mag poached Singer instead. So what does this mean for Glamour? And for Christensen?
Last night, Zoe Saldana walked the red carpet at UK Glamour’s Women Of The Year Awards, where she picked up the prize for Best Film Actress of the Year. And as per usual, her dress was quite the eye catcher.
Well, this is interesting. After all the hullaballoo yesterday (and this morning!) over Glamour’s June swimsuit issue featuring plus-size model Crystal Renn, Victoria’s Secret angel Alessandra Ambrosio, S.I. Swimsuit Issue covergirl Brooklyn Decker on the front, it turns out that Glamour’s francophone counterpart has gone and done something relatively novel: they’ve featured regular, plus-size people wearing fashionable, plus-size clothing in a four-page spread in the magazine.
Yesterday we wrote a post wondering whether or not Glamour had retouched its trio of bikini clad cover girls, also known as Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio, Sport’s Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model Brooklyn Decker, and plus-size supermodel Crystal Renn. We e-mailed Glamour for comment after our post went up and now Glamour’s editor in chief Cindi Leive has responded.
Now, don’t get us wrong — it’s painfully obvious that Crystal Renn, Alessandra Ambrosio and Brooklyn Decker all look super striking posing for the June issue of Glamour. More, we’ve got to applaud the trio of babes for having the guts to sport bikinis with gusto (never an easy task, right?) and the forward-thinking mag for representing different body types on their cover. But based on these behind the scenes candids from the on location shoot, it looks as if the art director took some liberties with his retouching.
Glamour went extra glamorous this month for their 50 Most Glam Women of 2010 issue. Leighton Meester, Amanda Seyfried, and Zoe Saldana each graced their own April cover, wearing a minidress more sparkly (and shorter) than the next.
