In 2010, shamed designer John Galliano launched his own downward spiral with an anti-semitic rant that was caught on tape. In 2011 he was fired from Dior for those, and other unseemly behaviors. The fashion world has sat back, both rubbing our palms together to watch this disaster unravel, and cautiously awaiting his next move — will he come back? Will he ever be able to come back from this? We may just get our answers in his first-ever sober interview, and first since being ousted from the house, in Vanity Fair’s July issue.
When we heard that one of our all-time favorite magazines was launching in one of our all-time favorite countries, suffice it to say we were expecting something big. Sure, we may not be quite fluent in the language, and trudging through the longform pieces may have promised something of a challenge, but with Carine Roitfeld’s one-time rumored successor Virginie Mouzat in charge of fashion coverage, we figured we’d be in for some top notch content. Unfortunately, the debut cover isn’t much to write home about.
Parsons students may no longer have access to John Galliano, after his planned three-day workshop was abruptly cancelled this week, but Vanity Fair readers will soon get the chance to bear witness to the disgraced designer’s first interview since his public, anti-Semitic outburst in early 2011.
We’ve given Brad Pitt a lot of flak lately — for the bedraggled hair; for the rambling Chanel ads; for the unkempt wardrobe and the man Spanx it allegedly conceals — but we have to say he’s looking pretty good on the cover of this month’s Vanity Fair.
Jennifer Lawrence is a little busy these days, what with shooting the next installment of the Hunger Games trilogy and all. Plus, she hardly needs to keep up the publicity parade now that she’s already taken home a certain little gold statue. This means that new photo shoots have been few and far between since February, and magazines that want her for their cover have resorted to buying up outtakes of already-published shoots. Case in point: this month’s Tatler Russia cover.
The fashion set stepped out in style at last night’s Vanity Fair party for the Tribeca Film Festival. Vera Wang, Rachel Roy, Karolina Kurkova, and more were decked out in menswear-inspired ensembles that were actually quite sexy and feminine, while Tory Burch and Tao Okamoto brought a dash of color and prints.
Taylor Swift‘s face has been smiling, smizing, and otherwise staring out at us from newsstands everywhere for the better part of the past year. The 23-year-old kicked off her cover spree with Vogue‘s February 2012, and since then has covered Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, and Vanity Fair, to say nothing of the countless tabloid covers she’s popped up on with boyfriends Conor Kennedy and Harry Styles (They’re on the rocks! They’re moving in together! He’s cheating!). It’s enough to make even the biggest fan of Swift’s music feel exhausted. And, lo and behold, WWD published their report of 2012 newsstand sales today, and it looks like Swift’s covers haven’t been the sales coup the publishers were expecting. But why? We have some hypotheses.
While it may be true that all of the biggest stories of the night happened at the Academy Awards ceremony (and, ok, on the red carpet beforehand), we’ve always been partial to a good after party ourselves, and yesterday’s annual Vanity Fair bash may hold the honor of being the most star-studded of them all.
Good news for the magazine industry: circulation in the UK is decidedly up.
With its rotating cast of larger-than-life characters, media melees, and constant, bustling activity, Hollywood is nothing if not a three-ring circus. So it’s only fitting that for the March issue of Vanity Fair, Bruce Weber photographed the best and brightest film stars of the moment looking like they’ve run off with the Ringling Brothers.
The rarefied space on Vanity Fair‘s International Best-Dressed List is typically reserved for royals, sartorially selective starlets, and people with buckets and buckets of money. But now the magazine is opening up the annual honor to everyday civilians — with a catch.
And you thought we lucked out stateside with a smiling Jennifer Lawrence on the this month’s Vanity Fair! Over in Italy, the dashing face that’s landed their February cover is none other than Pope Benedict XVI‘s private secretary, Archbishop Georg Ganswein.
Now that Jennifer Lawrence‘s Vanity Fair cover is out and brightening up newsstands everywhere, we hope you’ve had the chance to admire the Ellen von Unwerth-lensed spread and, of course, the actress’ unfailing candor.
It wouldn’t be fair for Anne Hathaway to get all of the glossy lovin’ this winter, so while she covers Vogue, her equally gorgeous Les Misérables co-star Amanda Seyfried is Vanity Fair UK‘s December star, donning couture creations from the likes of Chanel, Valentino, and Christian Dior.
We’re pretty convinced that there isn’t a thing in this world that Tavi Gevinson can’t do. She’s a huge feminist, is a cover girl, and has even dabbled in voice acting — plus, she founded Rookie at the tender age of 15. We found out over the summer that she would be adding ‘actress’ to her lengthy resume, and now she’s opened up about her role in an interview! Read on, die-hard Tavi fans!
For something involving people who make pretty things for a living, the fight between Tory Burch and ex-husband Chris Burch sure is ugly.
Kate Moss covers the December issue of Vanity Fair, and inside, she candidly reveals that her rise to the top wasn’t always glamourous. In fact, for her it was the exact opposite, and she opens up about having a nervous breakdown when she was just 17-years-old and feeling uncomfortable posing nude.
It seems like a massive oversight that as Ebony co-founder and creator of the Ebony Fashion Fair, Eunice Johnson would have never made the Vanity Fair best dressed list.
You already know that H.R.H. Duchess of Cambridge (otherwise known as Kate Middleton) topped Vanity Fair‘s storied International Best-Dressed List this year, earning her a coveted spot on the cover of the glossy’s September issue. But who else made the cut?
