Two things we can confirm: This is supposed to be Taylor Swift. And it’s not December yet.
When a fashion mag like InStyle throws a party, you can bet that the stars are going to think carefully about their outfits. Thankfully, Jaime King, Christa B. Allen, Sophia Bush, and more stepped up their style game, and bandage dresses were nowhere on the red carpet.
It’s not even August yet, but we’re already getting the details about the upcoming September issues. We’ve gotten the scoop on the cover stars, we’ve revealed a slew of ad campaigns that’ll run in the issues, and now we’ve got ad page counts.
We’re pretty open-minded when it comes to other people’s personal style (it is personal, after all) but one rule we think people should observe universally is that their clothes should fit. Songstress Stacy Ferguson (better known as Fergie, Josh Duhamel‘s main squeeze or the chick from The Black Eyed Peas) broke that rule last night in a major way.
You know all those jokes about putting lipstick on a pig? (Or, alternatively, putting a hog in armor?) Well, it turns out dressing a pig up can actually be pretty effective — so long as that pig already famous. Which is Why InStyle magazine partnered with some of the hottest designers working today to dress the one and only Miss Piggy for the November issue.
Katy Perry is fronting the October issue of InStyle, and we really dig the cover!
When we think Beyoncé, we think full-on glam. And said glam factor usually translates to her magazine covers — remember Complex? Or Dazed & Confused? While she looks pretty on the September cover of InStyle, there’s definitely a lack of glam.
Fashion magazines have different interpretation of the latest trends, but one trend almost every big glossy is following these days is decreasing newsstand sales.
There’s a tantalizing little nugget of information buried in an AdWeek piece on sales of ad pages for this year’s round of September issues. Turns out Anna Wintour and company are getting ready to debut another website.
Ever wonder what Tavi Gevinson keeps in her locker? Today’s StyleDish shows us the Style Rookie’s essentials (amongst them a blue wig and Play-Doh), Andrej Pejic’s latest catwalking adventures, and how to look like a J.Crew model (because that’s obviously very, very necessary).
The September issues may be the most important of the year when it comes to magazine advertising pages, but March is a pretty close second, which is why March covers are such a big deal. The latest numbers show that Lady Gaga and Katy Perry made bank for their covers of Vogue and People Style Watch, respectively. But while numbers for most well-known fashion magazines look good, many women’s fitness books had lower sales this year than they did last year.
Amy Adams may have snagged the cover of British InStyle‘s February issue, but one of the inside photos is causing us some major head scratching. We ask you this, dear readers: where the hell is her other leg?!
For fashion magazines, a single September issue can make or break the year. The Audit Board of Circulation’s Rapid Report, which counts the number of single-copy sales of each magazine, lets us know just how well the glossies fared. And you might be surprised at which celebrity gave their magazine a serious newsstand sales boost.
InStyle held their annual Summer Soiree last night and while the party looked fun, the fashion did not. There were a few bright spots on the sartorial guest list, including America’s Next Top Model alum and W cover girl Ya Ya DaCosta, 90210 starlet Jessica Stroup, and former model Keisha Whitaker, but a preponderance of overwrought and over-thought dresses put a damper on this August evening.
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.
In a bit of media news brimming with money and temporary economic happiness, most fashion magazines have reported that their ad sales for the September issues have outstripped the dismal numbers from 2009.
Another month, another blonde…this month InStyle decided to stick to a very specific color scheme. So specific that Scarlett’s blush and lipstick match the InStyle banner at the top of the issue to a tee — and a fault. While she looks fresh-faced, certainly pretty, and very confident, the actress gets lost amid the rest of the color; she literally blends in.
Earlier this month we reported on a study that said blondes make more money and marry richer men. Apparently the magazine industry also thinks blondes are better for circulation.
