As much as I like to make fun of Audrey from Girls for being a huge fashion victim with her camo-print rompers and culturally insensitive headbands, I believe there’s a right way to wear this un-killable trend. Why, I’ve even been known to rock a floral headband myself. I’m also a fan of that witchy, lacey, Steve Nicks look, which is good, because it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Considering these two facts, then, it’s no surprise I approve of this ethereal photo spread in the March issue of Vogue Russia, which does the late winter/early spring nature sprite thing quite well. On a related note, my birthday is in March, so I am going to pretend they made this editorial just for me. More

Sometimes, Photoshop is so strange and unnatural that you have to wonder: do people even look at this stuff before it’s published? And seldom is a Photoshop hackjob this unusual that lands a cover. More
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… whileÂ buying groceriesÂ in a supermarket. Yes, a regular old, garden-variety supermarket. The most mundane of environs. Wouldn’t that be camp? And tongue-in-cheek?Â In fact, the whole idea of juxtaposing coutureÂ opulence with menial tasks is just so rich!
In the January issue of Vogue Russia, a standout editorial features model Lily Cole alongside a black panther in some sort of white space room, wearing thousands of dollars worth of couture. It says something about the fashion industry’s excess that this editorial reads as fairly stripped down and basic. Anyway, click through to see Lily Cole in various smashing spring 2012 looks by Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton, Marni, and others. More
Maroon 5‘s frontman-at-large Adam Levine–AKA the man who sings “Moves Like Jagger” and consequently makes me feel violent–dates veteran hot blonde Russian model Anne Vyalitsyna (Anne V if you’re nasty), which makes him a perfect prop for a “rock’n roll-inspired” shoot in Vogue Russia’s November issue. Check out the couple (and at least one intense Photoshop Disaster) working Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana, and YSL for Alix Malka‘s camera. Be warned though: there is some fashion nipple. More
When I first found out Versace was doing a line with H&M, I grew intensely curious as to what it would look like. How would Versace, a name which brings up connotations of resplendent, expensive excess, slot into a store known primarily for its cute and affordable (and wearable) fast fashions? Answer: well enough, I suppose. Some early images of the line (out in the US November 19) appear in the October issue of Vogue Russia, and they show an emphasis on fun and colorful 80′s inspired patterns. Here they are.
