The Great Gatby is the stuff of dreams for fashion editors looking to the film for inspiration: visually stunning, replete with Prada duds and Tiffany & Co. jewels, and with a great looking cast to boot. So, naturally, the covers have started rolling in in anticipation of the May 10 release date. So far, two Vogue editions have taken their cues from Daisy Buchanan‘s glamorous excesses for this month’s issues, with Vogue Australia casting Karlie Kloss and her era-appropriate bob, and the US version going, predictably, with Carey Mulligan, who will star as Daisy on the big screen. But which cover captures the essence of Gatsby best? Let’s take a look.
Former Vogue Australia editor Kirstie Clements is continuing her press rounds to promote her book The Vogue Factor, or what we’re calling “the Vogue exposé“. On Wednesday, she appeared on Entertainment Tonight, and delved into more the details of her book.
Back in May of last year, Kirstie Clements was unceremoniously dumped from her post as editor in chief of Vogue Australia after 13 years at the helm, and swiftly replaced by Edwina McCann, the editor of rival title Harper’s Bazaar. In the time since her departure, she has penned “The Vogue Factor”, a memoir recounting her 25 years at the title, which is now making headlines for the very unflattering portrait it paints of the modeling industry. Of course, we’ve heard it all before (The cotton balls! The cocaine! The endless hours of cardio!) but the claims don’t usually come from someone who’s held the top spot at a Condé glossy.
The April covers are pouring in, and while some are great (Michelle Obama, anyone?) others have us confused. Where is Miranda Kerr‘s shoulder? Why is Brit Marling making that face? Who thought those earrings were a good idea? We investigate.
Kendall Jenner is slowly moving up the modeling ranks, and her latest achievement is landing a Vogue cover!
H&M campaign star and indie darling du jour Lana Del Rey covers Vogue Australia’s October issue in an ethereal shot taken by photographerNicole Bentley. And because the glossy is based down under, Christine Centenera styled the songbird in springtime ivories and pastels while we’re all gearing up for fall.
Vogue Australia’s December issue takes actress Isabel Lucas to the Kalahari Desert, in the hopes of giving her “a moment to reflect”. To which we can’t help but ask: reflect on what? The gross absurdity that is wearing a $2,700 suit for a photoshoot with the desert’s indigenous tribe, thousands of which have been relocated by the Botswana government to “resettlement camps” in order to free up access to diamonds discovered under their ancestral lands?
This Vogue cover first caught our eye because of its mixed prints, geomtric theme, and crisp graphics. And then we noticed the artfully placed ‘E’ and the, well, up close and personal angle from which it was shot and now it’s a whole different ball game.
This week Kate Moss got the Carrie Bradshaw treatment and Kate Middleton wore a floral pancake hat. LOVE Magazine totally ruled, plus-size model secrets were exposed, and Rachel Zoe‘s baby son got us all envious. Also, OMFG Mariah Carey.
If you’re not familiar with model Robyn Lawley yet, you should be. She is, besides gorgeous, one of the three stunners featured on that now legendary cover of Vogue Italia. She is also, as of their August issue, the first plus size model to ever be featured in Vogue Australia.
Now that she’s shacking up with husband Orlando Bloom in LA, pregnant (and naked!) Miranda Kerr finally put her New York apartment up for sale. The 10th floor corner apartment, located on 19th Street in Flatiron, has an asking price of $1.395 million.
