V Magazine Page 2
At this point, we can pretty much all agree that James Franco is a weird kid. A very well educated kid, but a weird one nonetheless. And the actor/lecturer/artist has taken one more step to prove his own weirdness with the major difference in his two fall magazine covers: one that shows him in all his cosmopolitan, fashion-y glory, and another that just shows his bare ass.
Call it a sign of the times, but you know Lady Gaga means something big when even Martha Stewart wants her makeup done like the Mother Monster’s.
Walking into the Boom Boom Room last night at New York City’s Standard Hotel to celebrate V magazine’s Elizabeth Taylor-themed issue, we didn’t know a soul. And so we grabbed a glass of champagne, found a small space against a wall to hover, and started people watching. Little did we know that by the end of the night, someone would be bleeding, Lindsay Lohan would be fighting with photographers, and Courtney Love would be staring us straight in the face, open-mouthed and hanging on to our every word.
Kate Winslet gives the camera her best Elizabeth Taylor for the cover of the Heroes-themed September issue of V Magazine, but it’s her candid thoughts on the inside of the issue that really grabbed our attention. Besides praising Liz’s ability to actually move her face — oh, the scourge that is Botox — Winslet has no qualms telling us what she really thinks about filming nude scenes.
We’ve seen our fair share of tributes to the late actress, activist and beauty icon Elizabeth Taylor, who died this March. But none of them have been quite so chic as the 72-pages which fashion alien Carine Roitfeld and photographer Mario Testino dedicated to her memory in the upcoming issue of V Magazine.
We understand that Lady Gaga is obsessed with fashion, but her new column for V Magazine, in which she basically tries to get back at New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn for unfollowing her on Twitter, largely misses the point of fashion criticism is all about.
Earlier this month, we reported that Amanda Harlech and Daphne Guinness traded places for a Karl Lagerfeld-shot editorial for V Magazine‘s transformation issue. The pictures have arrived, and they’re as awesomely bizarre as we hoped they’d be.
The new issue of V magazine is here and its not your run-of-the-mill glossy. Penelope Cruz covers the magazine’s “Transformation” issue in a techni-colored photo, while Paris Hilton reveals her new life (and some other stuff) in unrecognizable shirtless shots.
Only Karl Lagerfeld could convince two of the most fiercely independent fashion stars to abandon their personas and adopt each other’s. Lagerfeld photographed his longtime friend Daphne Guinness and personal and professional muse Amanda Harlech for the upcoming issue of V Magazine.
This week was the week of censorship — Hillary Clinton, Lady Gaga, and Andrej Pejic were all victims. Chanel went all-out for its cruise show, Bristol Palin got a new surgically-altered look, and Kate Middleton is still a very big deal. Also, Iris Apfel, we love you!
Why Lady Gaga has ever felt the need to defend her role and station as a fashion savant, we have never understood. But that’s exactly what she did in her first column for V Magazine.
Lady Gaga is doing a lot of things we love lately, first releasing the kickass “Judas” video and now showing up on the cover of V looking all kinds of fly.
Not only is Carine Roitfeld starring in a Karl Lagerfeld-shot editorial for the upcoming issue of Visionare, she’s also apparently styling the cover and a fashion editorial for the fall issue of V Magazine.
Early Wednesday morning (or late Tuesday night, depending on how you want to look at it) Lady Gaga took to Twitter to announce her newest endeavor as a monthly columnist for the uber-fashiony V magazine. And while it’s already safe to say that pretty much anything the Fame Monster touches turns to gold, this is one project we really can’t wait to see.
We’re suckers for a good horoscope here at Styleite and, more importantly, for Susan Miller. So when we heard that she was lending her astrological talents to V magazine by offering readings on some of fashion’s biggest names, we were delighted. And then, when we realized one of those names was John Galliano, we died. (A la Rachel Zoe. Not literally.) Miller’s predictions for Galliano, Alber Elbaz, and more, after the jump.
Buried somewhere under Sunday’s barrage of Oscar-themed tweets was the following earth-shattering, 140-character revelation shared by fashionable boy about town Derek Blasberg: Mario Testino shot Britney Spears for V magazine’s March issue. The exact word Blasberg used to describe the pairing was “EPIC.” We’re not so sure.
Julia Restoin Roitfeld is a huge overachiever. Besides having her own art direction company, modeling for Lancome, and being obscenely cool for a living, she’s also interviewing Tom Ford and taking pictures (of herself!) for the newest issue of V Magazine.
In a year when the best advice anyone could give about anything was “Do the best you can with less,” fashion magazines — the smart ones, anyway — seemed to respond in kind. White space, nudity, and faces (and bodies) rather than full-on fashion dominated the best magazine covers of 2010, and we’ve assembled a group of 15 books we think did it best.
V Magazine is reporting that model Charles Devoe has died. They wrote in a post last night: “It shocks and deeply saddens us to hear of the sudden and tragic passing of Soul Artist Management model Charles Devoe. We always considered Charles to be a part of the V family. Our thoughts go out to all of his friends and family during this time.”
Last week, we showed you what a year’s worth of Vogue magazines would look like if you layered them on top of one another. Now, you can see what Interview, i-D, Love, V, and W would look like if you did the same. And just so you know, the answer is: very, very cool.
