All right, guys: you’re probably getting sick to death of 2013 Met Gala stuff, but we need to talk hair and makeup before we depart this shitshow entirely. Let’s get right to it: here’s our list of the best Met … More
The 2013 Met Gala took place last night and
it was all our worst fears realized interesting! While the theme–PUNK: Chaos to Couture–was largely ignored, it was still observed enough (and hilariously misunderstood) to slip up many attendees.
Since this isn’t a typical red carpet, our criteria for the Met Gala Best Dressed list is thus: in order to make the list, attendees had to (at least) allude to the theme while simultaneously looking like themselves. The best looks were a little off, or more than a little. More
It’s officially spring, y’all! Birds are chirping, buds are opening, and today was the very first day this year I ventured outside without any fabric covering my legs. (The bottom two-thirds, anyway; it’s not leotard weather yet.) And it will grow even springier next month, which magazines shall celebrate with various spring-themed spreads! As a sucker for both spring and flowers, I do not tire of these kinds of photos, especially when they feature cool people like Karen Elson. She’s best known outside the fashion world as Jack White‘s ex-wife, but she’s also a musician in her own right, as well as a great model who’s been working in the industry for some time. And age 34, she’s getting more work than ever. This is hardly over the hill, but it’s still nice to see in such an age-ist industry. Click through to get psyched for spring by looking at Karen Elson wearing pretty clothes and flowers. More
We here at The Gloss like to talk about how awesome Vogue creative director Grace Coddington is as a person, but a quick search reveals that we haven’t explicitly made a point of showing you very much of her actual fashion editing work. Which is a shame, because it is great! For the January issue of US Vogue, The Cod enlisted Steven Klein to photograph models Carolyn Murphy and Karen Elson wearing colorful spring 2013 get-ups as they wandered through various bizarre, retro-futuristic scenarios. The resulting editorial feels odd, retro, glamorous and modern, all at the same time. Maybe fashion can be art, after all. More
i-D Magazine must not be among the fashion glossies hurting for funds. For their fall “Role Model” issue, i-D shot sixteen very impressive covers featuring a mixture of supermodels like Linda Evangelista and Gisele Bundchen, and up-and-comers like Jourdan Dunn and Kolfinna Kristófersdóttir. Stylistically, the covers are fairly diverse; some are in color, some in black and white, and some are styled in an ultra-modern way while others are more retro. But in each one, the model is hiding one of her eyes, which creates a nice common thread. Here are all them. 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.

Chanel sponsored a big party in honor of director Pedro Almodovar at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art. Lots of usual suspects (and usual Chanel fans) showed: Anna Wintour, Sarah Jessica Parker, Emma Stone, Olivia Wilde, and Chloe Moretz. Thrown in a bunch of models–Karen Elson, Miranda Kerr, Joan Smalls–and the one and only Karl Lagerfeld. You’d think that with all the fancy people in head-to-toe Chanel, there’d be lots of good taste on display. Well, you’d be wrong, because designer logos don’t equal style. Isn’t that right, Blake Lively? More
When reading W‘s art and fashion issue, you might want to pay close attention to the pages and pages of ads you normally skip through to get to the editorial content. This is because, scattered among the ads for actual products, are nine completely fake ads for fake products shot by the wonderful Steven Meisel. They star such familiar faces as Karen Elson, Linda Evangelista, and good old Joan Rivers, and I happen to think they’re a pretty brilliant marriage of fashion and art. More
