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
Last night, the fashionable set–from supermodels like Natalia Vodianova and Alec Wek to power designers like Stella McCartney and L’Wren Scott–descended on London for Harper’s Bazaar‘s 2013 Women of the Year Awards and… wow, things got weird. And graphic. And colorful. And, uh… mesh.
Let’s see what attendees wore…
By now, you’ve heard the news: Marc Jacobs is leaving his post at Louis Vuitton after 16 years with the house (for more details, here’s a link we recommend).
During his tenure, Jacobs not only designed some really beautiful clothes, he also dramatically overhauled Vuitton–taking it from luggage brand to global fashion juggernaut. Here’s some of his greatest red carpet hits under the LV banner. More
Did you know that conventionally beautiful women occasionally suffer from poor eyesight? They might even wear glasses sometimes–in public, too, and not just in the shameful darkness of their basements. Victoria’s Secret angel Erin Heatherton had the audacity to wear hers out in Sydney last night.
Astonishingly, this is a news. story. Which is absurd for at least
two two hundred reasons–not the least of which is glasses make people look hot. Both sexes. Are some people unaware of that?
Anyway, in the interest of reminding everyone that 1) hot people sometimes wear glasses and 2) glasses can even make them extra hot, here is a gallery of conventionally beautiful women brave enough to wear them. More
Normal people can get away with not paying interns; Lagerfeld can get the interns to pay him. More

As if you needed any more evidence that Natalia Vodianova is a genetically perfect race of dystopian replicant, here it is. More
The Fall 2013 Givenchy show walked in Paris yesterday and, predictably, a shitload of famous people stopped by. Some glittery front row regulars (Kanye West, with girlfriend Kim Kardashian in tow, Amanda Seyfried, newly minted fashion darling Jessica Chastain, etc) and some industry big hitters (Carine Roitfeld, Anna Dello Russo) were all in attendance.
How many of them wore sunglasses at night? More
Here at The Gloss, we love catching fashion magazines in their stubborn reliance on old cliché. Whether it’s cartoonish carb-loading or yet another faux-provocative editorial featuring sexy nuns or still more grocery store spreads or just, uh, racism–apparently there’s a painfully small number of ideas in the world.
V Magazine’s latest issue features an editorial called The Discreet Charm of Kate Upton–shot by Sebastian Faena, it’s ostensibly an homage to Buñuel, but it’s also yet another fashion spread preoccupied with a bored, beautiful woman in designer clothes. Upton’s character appears to be having an affair (though she never sets down her Marc Jacobs bag)–while her many, many precursors are stuck with less glamorous household chores. But all of them are dressed to the nines!

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have split–after some cryptic tweets and a pap sighting or two, rumor mills place the blame squarely on the beautiful shoulders of 19-year-old fashion (and lingerie!) model Barbara Palvin. Apparently Bieber got a little too close to the doe-eyed brunette while performing at the hallucinatory nightmare that is the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and the pair subsequently took in Lion King on Broadway. …Which means you’ll probably be hearing a lot about Palvin in the coming weeks–before hordes of Beliebers tear her limb from willowy limb. Here’s a primer on Palvin’s brief but impressive career. More
Though perhaps it’s just more of a traditional puppy face? More

Take a look at these photos and tell me if you see anything reminiscent of Marie Antoinette. More
Why mess with that face? More
