Taylor Swift’s Full Vogue Spread Is Here

Taylor Swift's Full Vogue Spread Is Here

In an astonishing turn of events, news leaked this week that a thin, white, conventionally attractive blonde girl will be featured on the cover of American Vogue. That girl is “country cutie” (our preferred epithet) Taylor Swift and that issue will run in February. Here’s the full spread and–not being an asshole for once, guys!!–we like the throwback feel of the cover.

…The editorial, however? Not so much. Looks an old Fashion Rocks insert and floppy hats are still being used to signify “edgy bohemian glamor.” Swift was shot by Mario Testino wearing some monumentally ugly clothes (but also pretty Rodarte Van Gogh prints!). Take a look. More »

19-Year-Old Karlie Kloss Gets Naked In Italian Vogue

19-Year-Old Karlie Kloss Gets Naked In Italian Vogue

Just the other day, we saw the cover of Karlie Kloss‘ Italian Vogue and reminisced a little about how we’ve followed the wholesome Illinois native’s career since she was a 15-year-old Calvin Klein exclusive and how we were a little put off by that topless (effectively PG) Allure spread by Mario Testino

Today, the full Steven Meisel-lensed Vogue Italia editorial has dropped and–oh my god–Karlie Kloss has nipples! …And surprisingly ripped abs! The ed’s called “Body By Kloss” and features the former ballerina looking all kinds of fit. Here’s the entire NSFW shoot. More »

19-Year-Old Top Model Karlie Kloss Does Controversial First Nude Shoot For Allure

19-Year-Old Top Model Karlie Kloss Does Controversial First Nude Shoot For  Allure

We first saw Karlie Kloss stomping down a runway when she was just 15 and since then she’s kept up a pretty wholesome image. However, it’s hard not to feel like fashion people have been eager to get her naked as soon as legally possible: inside a year of turning 18, she landed the cover of i-D‘s Exhibitionist issue wearing nothing but a Prada hat and half of Jourdan Dunn’s also-naked body. It even kind of reminded us of that creepy countdown clock to the Olsens turning 18. …Now Kloss is 19 and Mario Testino has shot her for a beauty feature in Allure… her first completely naked shoot.

Gallery: The First Images From Riccardo Tisciâs Very Expensive, Very Naked Issue of Visionaire Are Here

Remember when we mentioned Riccardo Tisci’s really expensive issue of Visionaire? Well, it’s out. And thankfully it’s hardcover (I don’t know if I’m joking). It’s also very, very NSFW. The issue is described as Tisci’s “meditation on the theme of religion” and explores the subject as “a synonym for obsession, ritual, worship, apparition and the celebration of humanity.” PROVIDED YOU ARE NOT AT WORK (or have a really cool job), check out Lara Stone, Marina Abramovic, and Arizona Muse and more photographed by majors like Inez & Vinoodh, Mert & Marcus and Mario Testino.

Kate Moss Nude, Has Butt Tattoos On ‘Vogue’ Brasil Cover

Kate Moss Nude, Has Butt Tattoos On 'Vogue' Brasil Cover

And now, our first peek at Vogue Brasil’s hefty 36th anniversary issue, featuring over 60 pages of Kate the Great as shot by her pal Mario Testino. Until we get a better look, I’ll be preoccupied with wondering 1) why would an institution celebrate its 36 anniversary, as it seems a kind of lame and uneventful milestone and 2) are they wings? And then after a moment of wondering, I realized Google existed. More »
