Well, Hermès, we just may have found a buyer for that $91,500 crocodile t-shirt of yours. Buzz Bissinger, author of Friday Night Lights and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, has penned a mind-boggling screed for the April issue of GQ, in which he confesses to a shopping addiction that has, from 2010 to 2012, run him $587,412.97.
Everyone’s favorite fedora-sporting crooner Bruno Mars covers GQ’s second annual “Style Bible” issue, and while he may look like the perfectly-coiffed gentleman as he poses in an Armani tux, a Saint Laurent suit, and other spiffy threads, Mars’ raunchy side is on full display in the inside profile.
Good news for the magazine industry: circulation in the UK is decidedly up.
Say what you will about Terry Richardson, but celebrities sure seem to love him. Beyoncé took it (almost) all off for the photographer on the February cover of GQ, and this behind-the-scenes video shows Queen Bey goofing around on set, laughing with the crew, and, of course, shooting smoldering stares at the camera.
Andy Cohen, the man behind The Rachel Zoe Project, It’s A Brad, Brad World, and, of course, the Real Housewives juggernaut, is featured in the February issue of GQ (yes, the one with Beyoncé on the cover!), and although his reality show demographics tend to skew female, the Bravo kingpin is right at home with the mostly-male audience.
GQ just debuted its list of “The 100 Sexiest Women of the Millennium”, which is topped, of course, by February cover star Beyoncé and features the usual suspects like Megan Fox, Kate Upton, and Christina Hendricks. Also included is the category, “This Year’s Hot Chinese Chick” (the honor of which went to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’s Zhang Ziyi). And there is more where that came from.
Apparently, sometimes even Beyoncé has to remind herself of just how much (and why, and how) she rules the world. To that end, the pop star keeps a meticulous, borderline-crazy sounding “archive room” in her midtown Manhattan office, according to the interview that accompanies her racy February GQ cover that was released yesterday.
There were a serious lack of magazine covers featuring Beyoncé‘s gorgeous mug last year. But thanks to GQ, we’ve got the very first one of 2013, and it is hottt.
Givenchy‘s Riccardo Tisci has been named GQ‘s Designer of the Year. As such, the Southern Italian designer is the subject of a lengthy profile in this month’s mag, which, if you remember, features a naked Rihanna on the cover.
Well, if you’re Rihanna, Krysten Ritter, or Dakota Johnson, your finest undergarments. If you’re Julianne Hough, Lizzy Caplan, or Lady Victoria Hervey, you most likely went commando.
There are many basketball players who love them some fashunz, like Amar’e Stoudemire, Dwayne Wade, and Carmelo Anthony, just to name a few. Now we can add Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo to that list, because he’s the newest intern at GQ.
In news that probably won’t shock anyone, Terry Richardson continues to push the envelope, Kate Upton continues to do things while almost naked, and YouTube doesn’t appreciate it.
Kate Upton fronts the cover of GQ‘s July issue, and we think the mag took the easy way out. We get the Fourth of July references, but the barely-there bikini top and suggestive popsicle pose are comically tacky. Oh, and it gets better (worse?) inside the issue.
Scott Schuman can certainly hold a grudge.
It’s official: The Gap is making a comeback. Because it wasn’t enough that the beleaguered American brand has recently announced a children’s collaboration with Diane von Furstenberg and a line of back-to-basics tees and sweaters, today it revealed that it would be working with GQ‘s Best New Menswear Designers in America on a capsule collection to be released this fall.
Poor Tom Brady. In addition to all the pressure of having to quarterback the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl tomorrow, he now has to deal with once again being called out for not being the best dressed guy in the world — this time by an editor from GQ, the steezy men’s fashion magazine he’s covered in the past.
There is an unspoken law that if a female actress plays an iconic figure in a movie, she will be photographed as such for every magazine cover and article pegged to its release. Case in point: Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe. It’s interesting and clever the first time around, but it gets stale really quickly, which is why we’re incredibly disappointed with GQ’s February cover, though Williams’ heart-wrenching profile inside makes every requisite bra-and-panty shot worth it.
Because it wasn’t bad enough that GQ called your town one of the least stylish areas of the country, the magazine’s staffers upped their game today and referred to the fact that Adam Lambert is a gay man as a “testosterone problem.”
This was the week Benetton got in trouble for Photoshopping the Pope making out with a dude. Versace for H&M hysteria reached fever pitch, the Jersey Shore kids got involved in a bunch of lawsuits, and Jay-Z was named GQ‘s Man of the Year.
