Who Wore Dolce & Gabbana Best On Vogue Paris?

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.

Where There’s Le Smoking, There’s Bound to Be Fire

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.

Hillary Clinton Goes H.A.M. in Colombia, Tupac Rocks Coachella and French Vogue Now in English

-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]

Tits on the Runway

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.

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.
