Crystal Renn and Alana Zimmer star in a circus-themed editorial for the January issue of Vogue Russia. We’d tell you the confection-colored clothing (courtesy of Chanel and Valentino, natch) are gorgeous, but Renn and Zimmer clearly steal the show.
Have you been anxiously awaiting Versace‘s collection for H&M? It’s been a few months since we’ve seen pictures of the designs, but now we have a whole new crop of images thanks to Vogue Russia.
By now you’re probably familiar with Hailey Clauson. She was the underage model who got Diane von Furstenberg upset. She’s also the girl on that “racy” Urban Outfitters tee. While the Urban case is still pending, Clauson has continued to pop up in editorials. Her most recent? One for Vogue Russia’s September issue.
After a yearlong absence from the glossy magazine business, Vogue Russia‘s founding editor Aliona Doletskaya has just landed a job as editor of the newly minted Russian and German editions of Interview magazine. Doletskaya’s first issue for the Russian market will be on newsstands at the end of the year, with German issues following in early 2012.
When Alina Kabaeva‘s Vogue Russia cover was revealed, people were really pissed. And it wasn’t because she wore that ubiquitous gold Balmain dress. No, it was because Kabaeva is the alleged mistress of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. The issue is now on newsstands, and the cover story features the former Olympian vehemently denying she gave birth to Putin’s baby.
Remember when we told you we obsess over Vogue covers? We weren’t kidding. Today’s Vogue cover fodder: Alina Kabaeva, alleged mistress of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, graces the cover of Vogue Russia‘s January 2011 issue. Scandal!
We write about magazine covers a lot. We speculate, we question, we mock, we praise. And every month we have a new batch of glossies to analyze! We’re not the only ones with a cover fetish, though. An industrious poster over at Fashin has put together an artful look at the past year in mags.
Vogue Russia seems to have caught the vintage bug. Their June issue comes with a supplement featuring photographs shot by Alexey Kolpakov that could have come straight out of a 1950′s Sears catalogue. Sasha Luss poses against fridges and ovens, she presets a turkey, and shows that she knows how to use a blender to make her unseen husband the most perfect smoothie in the land. And she does it all while wearing Dior.
