When last we checked in with her, up-and-coming model Tali Lennox was doing her best to model some clothing despite the creepy directions and unflattering photography of Terry “tampon tea” Richardson. “If she looks that good modeling clothes while grabbing crotches in Uncle Touchy’s basement,” I wondered, “how good must she look normally?” Answer: quite good! Take a look at her wearing clothes and touching zero crotches in a nicely shot, styled, and directed editorial from the August issue of Interview Russia. More
Let’s take a moment to decide if this is what we need to do with our afternoon. More
In the May issue of W Magazine, Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen star in a retro-styled editorial meant to drum up excitement for their upcoming HBO film, Hemingway and Gelhorn. Unlike the film’s gritty Spanish Civil War setting, the editorial is pure Hollywood glamor, but the two actors’ chemistry is definitely still there. Let’s try to decode its narrative. More
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from the fashion industry, it’s that smoking is really edgy. Better yet, it provides an edge where there wasn’t one before! That’s probably why Keira Knightley is photographed thoughtfully sucking on a cigarette in her cover editorial for April’s Interview: she’s conveying stuff–dark stuff. The shoot was lensed by Mert & Marcus and features apparel by Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, and Yves Saint Laurent. Here are Keira’s cigarette-est poses. More
You know how Joan Smalls scored the March cover of Italian Vogue and it’s a big deal because a black woman hasn’t covered that particular magazine in four years? …Unfortunately, some critics suggest that Italian Vogue might be chipping away at the significance of Smalls’ placement, saying the editorial that accompanies it is kind of racist. More
The March 2012 issue of BlackBook features a cover story on the untouchable Christina Hendricks, as well as a photo shoot with the somewhat tired theme of “sexy woman frolics moistly in the ocean”…because she’s a sexy siren, get it? But while I might wish magazines would come up with some new ideas, I’m pretty sure Christina Hendricks can do no wrong, so I’m giving this editorial a thumbs up, anyway. Check out all the hott pix, plus some stuff you probably already knew about her (from the accompanying story), after the jump. More
This is why they call her Kate the Great. More
Tiny terror Taylor Momsen can be seen showing off her signature goth rock style in the latest issue of Zink Magazine, which, as far as I can tell from its website, is about fashion, Canada, and something called “vaporization.” But while the clothes may look like she got them at Hot Topic circa 1997, they’re actually by luxury brands like Geoffrey Mac, La Perla, and Dolce & Gabbana. I’m sure they’re super well-made and everything, but I’m struck by how similar fancy rocker gear tends to look to goods that can be purchased at cheap-to-mid-priced stores like H&M and Trash and Vaudeville. In any case, Momsen rocks them the way only a genuinely angsty teen can, and looks quite comfortable in her own pale skin. Maybe it’s because she reminds me of high school me, but I actually find her pretty adorable. I just hope she finds a female mentor to tell her that those hair extensions are not very punk. More

As of 5:50pm today, it appears that more of you would rather go home with Jon Hamm than Ryan Gosling, if both of them were hitting on you in a bar at closing time and not all of you were down for a threesome. Personally, I’d choose Gosling, but I guess some women are still turned on by that whole “brooding caveman in a suit who might sexually assault you in a restaurant” schtick, so I understand. (I have trouble separating Jon Hamm from Don Draper.) Anyway, that Esquire profile that Jennifer mentioned contains lots of sexy photos of Jon Hamm, so here they are. I’ve appended some of the article’s more hilarious lines. More
Like we told you a few days ago, the ubiquitous Grammy-award-winning singer Adele is on the cover of the March issue of American Vogue. Now, Vogue has released a bunch of photos from their shoot with her, and she looks awesome in them, Karl Lagerfeld be damned. To his credit (and unlike many before him), writer Jonathan Van Meter doesn’t harp on her (perfectly normal) weight. She also comes off like a fairly normal human in the interview, which is sadly refreshing in this age of pop tryhards. Here are the photos Vogue has released, plus some choice quotes from the article. More
Did you know that Chloe Sevigny is playing a transgender assassin in a six-part TV series that’s premiering soon in the US and the UK? It’s true. Hence, for the February issue of Interview Magazine, Chloe channeled some m-to-f transgender energy for a gorgeous editorial shot by Craig McDean. In some photos it definitely seems like there’s some sort of kinky performance of gender going on, while others focus more on her natural beauty. Both kinds of photos lie within the possibilities of an actual transgender model. More
What do you get when you combine up-and-coming supermodel Sky Ferreira, master photographer Mario Testino, and an homage to Like A Virgin era Madonna? A damn fine editorial is what. See, magazine editors? There are lots of other iconic blondes to channel besides Marilyn Monroe. Maybe try channeling Courtney Love next. More
Will magazines ever get tired of styling young Hollywood actresses as Marilyn Monroe? Doubtful. But Michelle Williams just got done playing the doomed starlet in a movie, so GQ gets a pass this time. Is it just me or does Williams look uncomfortable in many of the shots? Maybe she’s channeling Marilyn’s bad mojo, or maybe she’s thinking about the things she said to the GQ writer about not wanting sexiness to be the main attribute for which she’s known: More
