We give Vogue a lot of trouble for over-zealous retouching, so ordinarily when we say a new cover “looks like a painting,” we don’t mean it in a positive way.
But! The December cover of American Vogue has hit the internet and it’s actually a real beauty! More
Despite the fact that she’s widely loved as an actress–and lauded as a crusader for more positive body image–there’s been a hefty internet-wide backlash to Kate Winslet‘s recently-dropped Vogue cover. Of course, the problem has nothing to do with Winslet herself… and everything to do with Vogue‘s over-eager retouchers.
But the painting of Winslet on the November cover isn’t exactly new territory for Vogue–they recently hacked off Claire Danes‘ limbs, for one. Moreover, there are quite a few covers from the last ten years that rival Winslet’s for showcasing humans who don’t exactly resemble humans. Let’s take a look. More
That right there is Kate Winslet, Oscar-winning actress, positive body image lobbyist, wife of a man with an unconventional surname and mother of two (soon to be three). We included the above photo so you can see what a pretty lady Winslet is, with all her wavy blonde hair and glowing skin. Oh, it’s also to remind you what she looks like today. Literally today. More
Iit comes as no surprise that part of Wendy Davis‘ new visibility includes the Vogue treatment–she’s profiled in the September issue, with an updated Fashion look. More
They seemed to capture the exact moment that someone made a joke and Danes didn’t find it funny. At all. More
After many a rumor and a long time comin’, Kate Upton landed the cover of American Vogue’s June issue. As per usual, she is portrayed in her carefree, sexy, “All-American” way. Her organs are actually filled with cherry pie and her circulatory system is comprised of red, white and blue streamers. More
We’re normally firmly pro-MObama in all categories but feel she looks a little stiff here. More
This week’s version of “Disney Princesses as [blank]” involves some very intricate dresses. More
We were bracing for an abrupt induction of the latest member of the “powerful and influential famous women who insist they aren’t feminists” club. More
The reason for Wintour’s decision? Delicious Isreali food, turns out. More
Lady Gaga let the cat out of the bag on Twitter: she’s American Vogue‘s September covergirl. Yes, the all-important September issue is refreshingly offbeat this year and Gaga looks great in a fried lion’s mane and that striking Marc Jacobs gown. She was shot by powerhouse duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott and styled by Grace Coddington (of course). The cover story is already up online, too, so it looks like this was a coordinated leak. More
You may not believe it, but Kate Upton–the girl who seems incapable of wearing anything but a bikini–landed in the “View” section of American Vogue‘s July issue… looking all fashion’ed up. More
Someone got hold of the first copy of Vogue‘s July issue, featuring Spider Man‘s lovely Emma Stone. More
