Guess Which (Female!) Model Landed The Saint Laurent Paris Men’s Campaign?

Guess Which (Female!) Model Landed The Saint Laurent Paris Men's Campaign?

Last week, we met Casey Legler, a striking female artist working as a male model (she’s even on the men’s board at Ford). We were so very excited to encounter a female trailblazer of this sort, after a few seasons dominated by Andrej Pejic. Apparently, though, we spoke too soon, because right out of the gate this week comes the brand new Spring 2013 Saint Laurent Paris menswear campaign, starring one of our favorite models, Saskia de Brauw… who happens to be a very beautiful woman.

French Vogue‘s September Issue Features A New Look And 3 Beautiful Supermodels

French Vogue's September Issue Features A New Look And 3 Beautiful Supermodels

It’s that exciting time of year when we fashion bloggers brace ourselves for 5 lb. September issues (and dread the arrival of Fashion Month). After last week’s reveal of an appealingly offbeat Lady Gaga on the September cover of American Vogue, we are happy to report that the magazine’s French sister is doing things a little different next month, too.

Fashion Cliché: Models Grocery Shopping In Designer Clothes

Fashion Cliché: Models Grocery Shopping In Designer Clothes

You know what sounds like a good idea for a striking, funny, provocative fashion editorial? Imagine a beautiful model… wearing outlandish couture, flowing caftans, immaculately tailored sheath dresses… while buying groceries in a supermarket. Yes, a regular old, garden-variety supermarket. The most mundane of environs. Wouldn’t that be camp? And tongue-in-cheek? In fact, the whole idea of juxtaposing couture opulence with menial tasks is just so rich!

And that’s what we should have thought last week, when we saw this Jean-François Campos-lensed cover shoot for Vogue Latin America starring Constance Jablonksi. But we didn’t. More »

The Editors Debate: Is Plastic Surgery ‘Immoral’?

The Editors Debate: Is Plastic Surgery 'Immoral'?

On Monday, we asked some ladies what kind of plastic surgery they’d get. Responses varied, but a few expressed extreme disdain for the practice, even the word “immoral” was thrown around. Plenty of commenters cried foul but more than a few agreed that it was, indeed, immoral. Now Editor-in-Chief Jennifer Wright and Deputy Editor Ashley Cardiff must debate to the death. Loser has turkey neck forever. More »

Terry Richardson Shot Lindsey Wixson Eating Again (It Was Predictably Gross)

Terry Richardson Shot Lindsey Wixson Eating Again (It Was Predictably Gross)

Terry Richardson does one thing now: he feeds simple carbohydrates to spectacular-looking women in designer clothes under harsh lights. That’s his shtick. His latest subject is Lindsey Wixson, who he shot with greasy french fries and ketchup for Purple‘s Fall 2011 issue. Richardson previously shot Wixson with a mountain of repulsive-looking spaghetti for Vogue Nippon. Oh, and he photographed Crystal Renn eating spaghetti in a disgusting manner for French Vogue. …And Natasha Poly horking cupcakes and chicken wings for French Vogue, too. And, well, here’s a gallery of gross photos of people eating by Terry Richardson. More »

Gallery: Carine Roitfeld Styles, Models, Dominates An Editorial For W

Is there anything Carine Roitfeld can’t do? Since leaving her job as editor-in-chief of French Vogue, it seems like the plucky little 57-year-old lady has been busier than ever. To go along with a feature on her in the October issue of W, she selected, styled, and modeled an editorial featuring some of fall’s most insane runway looks. The results are predictably glamorous.

Supermodel Sasha Pivovarova Plays A Bombshell On Her First French Vogue Cover

Supermodel Sasha Pivovarova Plays A Bombshell On Her First French Vogue Cover

I’ll admit it, I didn’t believe it was Sasha P at first. The Russian “doll-faced” mannequin–one of the few working who could reasonably be called a supermodel–looks more ’80s Madonna mashed with bodacious modern-day bombshell (Amanda Seyfried?) than her usual lanky self. Mert & Marcus shot Sasha in Versace for the October cover of Vogue Paris and yes, even though she’s been highly visible since opening Prada in 2005, this somehow manages to be her first. More »
