Tom Brady Wears A Dog Collar, Tom Ford Says Controversial Things In V

Tom Brady Wears A Dog Collar, Tom Ford Says Controversial Things In V

Tom Brady plays football but the fashion industry has decided he’s just too beautiful for all that pummeling and grunting, so they’ve bestowed upon him a nebulous career in being handsome. Thus, here is Tom Brady wearing a Givenchy suit on the cover of V, photographed by Mario Testino, styled by Carine Roitfeld and interviewed by Tom Ford himself (the full-court press). The New England Patriots’ quarterback and husband to Gisele Bundchen probably said some pleasant things in that interview, but it’s Ford who says all the interesting stuff. More »

Gallery: Choupette Lagerfeld Co-Stars With Laetitia Casta In BDSM (And Bestiality?) Themed V Editorial

Yesterday, I told you about how fashion has surrendered to the Internet by agreeing to put cats in everything. Well, here is an example of that. In the latest issue of high fashion glossy V, Choupette Lagerfeld (please note that she’s not “Karl Lagerfeld’s cat” anymore) gets equal billing with Victoria’s Secret model and FACE OF FRANCE Laetitia Casta in a vaguely creepy BDSM-themed editorial shot by the Kaiser, himself. And before you get righteously mad at me, know that I don’t think it’s creepy because of the BDSM, but because it seems we’re supposed to believe Choupette and Laetitia are performing BDSM on each other. In front of Choupette’s dad, no less. But what’s a bit of incestuous bestiality when there are clicks to be had? TEH INTERNETZ PWN AGAIN. More »

Gallery: Snooki Shows She's Serious About Motherhood By Getting A Make-Under In V Magazine

Of all the Jersey Shore kids to undergo make-unders, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi always comes out looking the most dramatically different. This is partly because she has the most over-the-top style (for which we love her), but also because she’s trying to make herself look like an entirely different race/nationality (Italian) than the one she was born as (Chilean), or rather, a stylized version of such known as “the guidette.” This month’s issue of V Magazine repeats the exercise, showing once again how well Snooki pulls off the natural look with some pretty black and white photos. Unsurprisingly, they accompany an article about how she’s ready and willing to grow up and be a good parent. Here are the four photos from the editorial, plus some of her more “regular” looks, for comparison. More »

Gallery: Ke$ha Juggalizes The American Flag In V Magazine

As the self-proclaimed queen of garbage chic, Ke$ha is not the first person you’d expect to see on the cover of a high fashion glossy like V. Nonetheless, she’s the cover story of the summer 2012 “Americana” issue, which I enjoyed reading as I actually think Ke$ha’s pretty okay. I’m not a huge fan of her music, but she seems to have a sense of humor about herself and an impish impulse to undercut the traditional “sexy pop star” archetype at every turn, which seems vaguely subversive in a way that’s age appropriate for her teen fans. As such, she (and her makeup artist) managed to take the majestic flag of our great nation and transmogrify it into something vaguely crass, kitschy and Juggalo-esque, demonstrating the ultimate hollowness of the American dream, or something.

Gallery: Kreayshawn And Terry Richardson Team Up To Annoy Us

Kreayshawn and Terry Richardson might be two of the most obnoxious personalities currently polluting the internet, albeit in very different ways. It comes as no surprise, then, that they’d team up to shoot some photos for that bastion of journalistic rigor, V Magazine. Here are some photos from the shoot, along with some dumb quotes from the accompanying profile. (This time, many of them do come from the musician in question.) More »

Lana Del Rey Shows Off Her Modeling Skills, Gets Breathlessly Profiled In V Magazine

Lana Del Rey Shows Off Her Modeling Skills, Gets Breathlessly Profiled In V Magazine

In the latest issue of V Magazine, newly anointed indie model Lana Del Rey can be seen practicing her sultry gaze in a retro-glamor-filled editorial. Does this portend great modeling to come, or should she stick to writing songs for the soundtrack of One Tree Hill? Here are all the photos, accompanied by the four most ridiculous quotes from the breathless, ass-licking puff piece that accompanies it. (To the singer’s credit, none of them come from her.) More »

Gallery: See All The Crazy Fashion Industry Costumes At V's Halloween Party

Last night, V Magazine feted their Carine Roitfeld-styled November covers with a splashy party in Midtown. Cover girls Joan Smalls (in maybe the best costume), Candice Swanepoel, Bambi Northwood-BlythSui He, and Hanaa Ben Abdesslem all showed up, along with the man who lensed them (and the night’s co-host) Terry Richardson, who dressed as… a Rabbi. See loads of models (Abbey Lee! Crystal Renn! Toni Garrn!), designers (Richard Chai! Phillip Lim! Alber Elbaz!) and other industry shining stars in costume. More »
