Congratulations to Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne of Public School — as wells as runner-ups Marc Alary of Marc Alary Jewelry and Juan Carlos Obando — who were announced as the winners of the 2013 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund last night at the award’s 10th anniversary ceremony.
The verdict on whether or not Lena Dunham will cover Vogue is still in limbo, with many torn as to what she should do if she receives the coveted invitation from Anna Wintour. Before today, we counted ourselves among those undecided, but after reading a reporter’s reasoning as to why she shouldn’t for the New York Post, it got us thinking about all the selfish reasons we want her to.
First Anna Wintour makes her foray into selfies, and now Vogue is taking to Instagram to produce their fabled spreads. Trading in higher-than-high-res images for fuzzy filtered realness is something that speaks to our Instragram-savy selves, but on the same token, we’d be devastated if grams took over Vogue’s glossy pages. Fortunately, we don’t see it happening on Patrick Demarchelier’s watch anytime soon.
There are actually two reasons we don’t like the cover of the October issue of Vogue with Sandra Bullock.
Like ‘fetch’ and Sedgways, Google Glass is something that, even if it does happen, will never really ‘happen’. But lately Vogue has been testing the waters of weird accessories, and because no one asked for it, here’s that six-page spread featuring Raquel Zimmermann traversing post-apocalyptic landscapes in the controversial eyewear.
Anna Wintour caused a stir back post-DOMA ruling when she sent a tweet from Vogue’s Twitter handle, and now she’s entered the unofficial selfie headquarters known as Instagram. Yesterday, in what was probably the least crap, almost-selfie ever taken, Anna posed with half her face hidden behind Jennifer Lawrence’s for the magazine’s September issue #voguestagram campaign.
Anna Wintour made her Instagram debut by posing behind Vogue’s September issue. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for a #selfie down the line.
Exactly how many trumpeters announced dinner at the Met Gala?
It’s not just the girls of Girls who are getting camera time after filming stops. Yesterday Jemima Kirke had us rethinking the tiny pottles potential disaster also known as pigments, and now Adam Driver, AKA Adam Sackler, has got himself in the glossy pages of Vogue.
Lawrence is already making her way into the fashion world as the face of Dior’s Miss Dior, and we imagine this beautiful and intense Vogue cover is a sign she’s well on her way to becoming an icon.
When you’re walking down the street, be honest, what’s the one accessory a woman can have that will catch your eye more than any other part of her outfit? Yes, obviously an adorable dog.
“We consider what we do a Wizard of Oz situation,” Thomas Bangalter, one half of Daft Punk, told Vogue. Considering that we’re just as intrigued by the French electronic pair as we were by the mysterious old man behind the curtain when we were children, we can get behind this analogy. And since they’re always stirring our curiosity, we especially envious of Karlie Kloss, because Chloé-clad traipsing around New York City with the duo, as well as checking her makeup in one of their metallic helmets, for a Vogue spread is just another day on the job.
While no fashion magazine we’re aware of has ever put a terrorist on the cover, it’s not like the industry is immune to controversy. Whether it’s underage models, racial sterotyping, an abundance of skin, a shortage of body fat or any combination of these things, it seems every new turn gives us reason to peek a little closer for a bad weave or a horrifically amputated limb.
We are officially seething with jealousy. Karlie Kloss, you’ve got it too damn good.
We kind of love that Katy Perry, the girl who: kissed a girl and liked it, dyed her hair Smurf blue, wore a Manish Arora Circus Carousel Dress, and brought us the frosted cupcake bra, has received the ultimate nod of approval from the ever-discerning Anna Wintour.
It seems Karlie Kloss might be an even bigger sensation overseas than here in the States. The St. Louis native covers this month’s issue of Vogue Turkey, which is the fourth time this year the model has peered out from the front of an international edition of Vogue (see Japan, Spain, and Australia).
It’s official: Kate Upton is Vogue‘s “American Dream Girl”, having landed the cover of the June issue after many months of speculation and rumor rebuttal from all sides. The news is remarkable not only because of Upton’s “Cat Daddy” origins, but because the glossy has seen so few models on its cover in the past decade that this puts the Sports Illustrated star in a very rarefied group indeed.
The Met Gala is finally here, and we’ve got you a spot on the red carpet (sort of). Watch the fashion action live tonight at 7:00 PM EST, and hope that Beyoncé arrives on time.
