Barack Obama may be TIME magazine’s “Person of the Year”, but even with all of his fistbumbing and trendsetting ways, he failed to earn the ever-coveted title of “Coolest Person of the Year”. Better luck next year, Prez.
Paul Ryan clearly wants everyone to know that, underneath all those oversized blazers and button-downs sans neckties, he has a seriously jacked up bod. How exactly do we know this? In addition to the paparazzi-lensed pics of a shirtless Ryan taken six years ago (pre-P90x workout regimen), the Vice-Presidential candidate did an athletic-themed and totally hilarious photoshoot for Time magazine in 2011, when he was in the running for Person of the Year.
Because nowadays we make television shows about everyone from rat hoarders to people trying to clone their pets, soon we will get to enjoy seeing toddlers breastfeed from the comfort of our own homes. God bless America, eh?
Seth Myers didn’t hold back last night during his Weekend Update “Really?!” segment, pillorying Time magazine’s controversial attachment parenting cover, which depicts 26-year-old mother Jamie Lynne Grumet breast-feeding her nearly 4-year-old son Aram.
Time’s latest cover story is about extreme parenting, and Time’s accompanying cover is, well, extreme.
Time has just released its list of the 100 most influential fashion icons. From designers like Marc Jacobs to editors like Anna Wintour and everyone in between, it’s a who’s who of fashion’s elite, past and present.
Marc Jacobs may well be beating out Lilo and Snooki with all the blaring headlines he’s snagged this week. His “Model-gate” scandal, where Jacobs admitted to not only hiring underage models but not paying them, has been public for less that a week and shows no sign of losing momentum — and Jacobs himself seems to be fueling the fire. The designer sat down with Time magazine on the last day of New York Fashion Week to discuss his refusal to adhere to CFDA guidelines.
This week’s Time cover is one of the most clever magazine fronts we’ve seen in a while.
Normally when magazines use the same photo for multiple covers, we raise our eyebrows in disbelief. But in the case of Time magazine, which has now used the same photo of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney twice, it’s just a really cool concept.
We’re pretty happy this morning to join the throng of fashion publications that have announced that Tom Ford has been selected as a member of the Time 100. We’re also just a little miffed to report that among the band of fascinating people who comprise the list, Ford is the lone representative of the fashion community.
According to a Time magazine poll of 2009′s most influential people, Lady Gaga is number one. Not only does she beat out political leaders like French President Nicholas Sarkozy (5) and Hillary Clinton (4) but, more importantly, her Gaga-ness beat out typically fierce fashion titans like Marc Jacobs (99) and Anna Wintour (122).
