Usually when a magazine releases multiple covers they try to make them visibly different. Vogue Paris, on the other hand, doesn’t believe in playing by the norms and featured 3 of fashion’s biggest models in the same Dolce & Gabbana frock for the September cover.
Indie Newsroom is brought to you by Saint Laurent’s new logo, another Anna-Obama dinner and Dov Charney’s disarming laughter.
Hailing from Chicago, Main Rousseau Bocher (1890-1976) became the premier American couturier in Paris only to bring his exacting and elegant creations back home where they found fans among the cream of American society.
Hedi Slimane made his unofficial debut as creative director of Yves Saint Laurent — soon to be Saint Laurent Paris — with a buyer’s only presentation of women’s resort and menswear in Paris this week. Luckily, nothing stays secret for long. Especially in fashion.
Though Carine Roitfeld has no intentions for her upcoming magazine, CR Fashion Book, to compete with the Vogues of the world, Condé Nast apparently still holds a grudge against the former Vogue Paris editrix.
To kick off June, our month dedicated to “Men,” let’s take a look back at that classic menswear staple, the tuxedo, given a feminine touch by Yves Saint Laurent some five decades ago: Along with the bikini, the wrap-dress and the tranny heel, Le Smoking is the greatest sartorial invention of the past 50 years.
-Chin up! Chin augmentation is now the fastest growing plastic surgery in America, making one long for the less complicated days of face-lifts, boob jobs and voluntary lipo. [Huff Po]
- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was Secretary of Shots in Colombia, leaving her pantsuit and her ponytail at home to knock a few back with the girls. I believe this was shortly before the entire Secret Service got secretly serviced. [NY Post]
Editirix extraordinaire Carine Rotifeld has started spilling the beans on her new biannual magazine, officially called CR Fashion Book. Describing it as a “celebration of fashion and creativity,” each issue will be centered around a theme and feature established and emerging talents both in front of and behind the camera.
- Fierce Lady of the United States/renowned HBIC Michelle ”Guns” Obama covers the May issue of Ebony magazine where apparently she addresses the issue of burning in hell following a one night stand. Literally, it’s the FLOTUS, show some respect and save that smut for Cosmo. [Styleite]
While awards season may officially be over and all the trophies have been effectively snatched, there are still some award-caliber movies floating around. So in that spirit, we decided to dole out some awards of our own to the best fashion films. And may the best short…WIN!
Vogues Paris and Italia have been no strangers to them, historically. American Vogue avoids them completely. Purple Mag masterfully exploits them. And New York Fashion Week is busting at the seams with them. We’re talking about boobs. Once relegated to the awkward nip slip, now the tits forward march dominates catwalk, and we love the sheer audacity. These are looks that may remind your man how sexy you can look in that see-thru floor length Yigal Azrouël, if only he buys it for you. Share your desire to replicate these runway looks at home alone with him, then layer into them when you step out in the big bad sadly non-nudist world. Because while you can’t see tits on the radio, you can see them on the runway. Happy Valentine’s Day.
Jitterbug. Emmanuelle Alt has finally made me not long for the kohl-eyed, pencil-skirted days of Carine Roitfeld and all it took was a few dozen models or so in a pitch-perfect parody of Wham!‘s “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.” To fete the relaunch of French Vogue‘s website, its editrix-in-chic recruited Anja Rubik, Kendra Spears, Karmen Pedaru and Jasmine Tooks to back her up in a feat of lip-synching that would put Madonna to shame. And while Alt is not as pretty as 80s-era George Michael — then again, who is? — she sure gives him a run for his jitterbugging money. Check out the thoroughly AMAZING clip after the jump.
Having paged through my fair share of Vogues since acquiring my first issue some ten years ago, I’ve picked up a trick or two. There are certain poses models always do – poses that are “classic Vogue.” So to master these is to get one horse-like step closer to those hallowed, glossy editorial pages.
