Jennifer Lawrence has officially landed her first Vogue cover, appearing on the front of the glossy’s British edition. And we are pleased to say that is a whole heck of a lot better than her October W cover! This one actually does her justice.
Models have a tendency to look equally as stylish off-duty as they do on the runway — but that doesn’t make checking out their street style any less interesting. This month, model crush Coco Rocha took over Vogue UK‘s “What I’m Wearing” lookbook blog to share her daily outfits with the world. To commemorate the end of Rocha’s style-blogging month, we’ve rounded up our five favorite looks.
Among other fascinating tidbits learned about Grace Coddington in R.J. Cutler’s The September Issue, we were thrilled to catch a glimpse of the great flame-haired editor’s modeling days. After winning a Vogue modeling contest at 17, her career took off, landing her two consecutive British Vogue covers in 1962.
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.
While we’re in the business of comparing and contrasting, American wundermodel Karlie Kloss found herself playing herself in two different magazines this month: Vogue UK and Teen Vogue.
Regardless of her obvious absent from Elle’s masthead, based on what we see on The City, Olivia Palermo “works” at Elle. Apparently the spring season doesn’t only bring out Olivia’s backhanded blows at her friends. Olivia also seems to be cheating on her place of work, by guest blogging for UK Vogue, one of Elle’s competitors.
In case you slept through your glossy alarm clock, the May issue of British Vogue is set to hit stands any day now. You know, the one with Gwyneth Paltrow on the cover dishing about freckles, fren-emies and probably some new cleansing kick that’s got her looking more gorgeous than previously thought possible. Alas, despite my personal “life crush” on G.P., there’s only so much GOOP a girl can take before she starts to feel bad about all those peanut butter eggs and jelly beans she ate this weekend. Fortunately, a quick flip through the fold reveals our other favorite long-legged export Karlie Kloss looking all sorts of spiced up and patriotic.
The late Alexander McQueen was never afraid of taking risks, so it comes as no surprise that his final undertaking would be something a little out of the box. As one of his final design feats, McQueen created a men’s underwear collection, slated to launch in June.
Once upon a time, the cover ladies of fashion’s most important and influential magazines were referred to as Supermodels. But with the advent of tabloids and the obsession with celebrity culture, fashion magazines steered away from model-covers and opted for actresses, musicians, and socialites instead. And then Kate Moss graced the cover of W’s September Issue, Linda Evangelista the cover of November, and now this month’s Vogue features a decidedly 90s-inspired Gisele Bundchen.
