If you want to observe a more nuanced approach to fashion, there isn’t a threesome more provocative than W, Kristen McMenamy, and Steven Klein. If you have any uncertainty, all you have to do is pore over the magazine’s latest spread, where the 46-year-old supermodel gets weird before Klein’s lens.
Cara Delevingne has made no secret of her desire to be a lead actress. And though she doesn’t yet have any Tim Burton on her resume, she does have a very bulky and very schizophrenic Instagram feed. This morning it lead from raucous party snaps to a close-up of Cara resembling The Ring’s Samara, which we would have passed off as a hangover if it weren’t for the caption ‘Do you like scary movies??’
While we presented our own ode to the birthday girl earlier today, W Magazine decided to go and one-up us by debuting Cara Delevingne’s divine September cover along with one very revealing accompanying interview.
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.
Last night, artist and fashion types joined forces to celebrate the launch of ‘do it: the compendium‘ by Hans Ulrich Obrist at The Park Avenue Armory in Manhattan.
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.
Taking a cue from Harper’s Bazaar, the fashion magazine decides to move from a monthly publication to just ten issues a year.
2012′s most recognizable faces went low-key and messy for the W Magazine shoot, and shared some at times surprising anecdotes.
By now, Emma Stone has got the glossy cover girl act down pat. But for the February issue of W, the actress ditches the shiny hair, studio lights, and heavy makeup for a look that’s a far cry from the usual newsstand fare.
WWD today noted the “fashion double take” they did upon seeing the shoot entitled “A Colorful Dream” in the summer 2013 issue of Melissa Shoes’ magazine Plastic Dreams. The spread, which features seven models in technicolor wigs lounging around a brightly-colored room, is, they say, “strikingly similar” to W Korea’s “Birthday Girls” cover story from March 2012, which — what do you know? — likewise depicts seven models in technicolor wigs lounging around a brightly-colored room.
In 2008, fashion designer Anand Jon was convicted on one count of rape, and 15 counts of sexual assault on girls as young as 14. He was sentenced to 59 years in prison on Rikers Island and is still awaiting trial in New York on similar charges. “Violation” is definitely a word we would attach to his crimes. But we certainly wouldn’t call them “fashion violations.”
We all know that Diane von Furstenberg loves life, as evidenced by her Twitter tales of flying over the Great Barrier Reef and attending Raf Simons‘ Dior spring 2013 show, among other things. But in an interview with W mag, the 65-years-young designer hints that her life in the ’70s was even more fun than her present day adventures.
W is celebrating their 40th anniversary this year, and to mark the occasion the magazine has recruited four of fashion’s favorite Hollywood faces to cover the November issue, one for each decade they’ve been churning out the glossy.
In W‘s newest installment of Lynn Hirschberg‘s Screen Tests, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler chat about how they met 14 years ago, their now-legendary senior thesis at Parsons, and their process of creating new collections.
More September covers are in! The latest is a leaked pic of Penelope Cruz on the cover of W magazine. But that’s about all the excitement there is to this underwhelming cover.
It’s not even August yet, but we’re already getting the details about the upcoming September issues. We’ve gotten the scoop on the cover stars, we’ve revealed a slew of ad campaigns that’ll run in the issues, and now we’ve got ad page counts.
Prometheus co-stars Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender cover W‘s August 2012 issue, and the pair is looking all sorts of sizzling.
In this screen test with Lynn Hirschberg for her W cover shoot, Karlie Kloss talks about her love of ballet, splitting her high school years between NYC and St. Louis, and going to her prom with a much shorter date.
We’ve already shown you Tom Cruise‘s bizarre W cover. Now, we’ve got his interview and pics from the inside spread. Believe it or not, both are just as weird as the cover.
