While we see T as more of a fashion magazine, many New York Times subscribers probably don’t. As people who look at images from fashion magazines and runways on a daily basis, we didn’t give this T cover featuring Julia Nobis in a swimsuit and leather jacket a second thought–at least not for any other reason than the impracticality of wearing a leather jacket over a swimsuit.
However, several readers–whose eyes are probably less accustomed than ours to seeing unrealistically thin people everywhere—complained about how shockingly thin and underage Nobis looked on the cover and in the accompanying editorial.
Deborah Needleman, T‘s EIC, however, disagrees.
Aside from its sheer length, one thing that differentiates Cannes from other red carpet events is the fact that it’s international, meaning the American style stars we all know and see on the covers of magazines every day will be mingling on the red carpet with equally well-heeled actresses we may not recognize.
For every Diane Kruger or Carey Mulligan, there’s a Fan Bingbing or an Aishwarya Rai. So, we’ve compiled a little guide to 10 sure-to-be Cannes it-girls from overseas that you’ll probably be seeing a lot of.
Buzzy designer Alexis Barrell may be London’s new fashion darling–but her road to success has traversed continents.
So what does J.W. Anderson’s collection for Versus look like? For one, there doesn’t seem to be much of a disparity between the men’s and women’s pieces.
This is possibly the best thing to come out of all of this punk fashion insanity.
Last Monday’s Met Gala was basically the worst night of Gwyneth Paltrow‘s life. It was crowded; it was hot; she did not have a good time and she’s had no problem airing her grievances to an assortment of news outlets.
Since we now know what Paltrow was really thinking and feeling while at the star-studded event, we went ahead and put together a little photo diary of her, captioned with her own words.
Last year’s silly, dramatic Met gala rumor was that Anna Wintour had banned Kim Kardashian from attending, leaving Kanye West to go stag. This was obviously not the case this year–Kardashian not only attended the event, but was also welcomed into Wintour’s home the night before.
However, if the celebrity gossip rags are to be believed (which, ya know), this year’s Met Ball was not as drama-free as it seemed.
In the wake of the recent Bangladesh factory accidents (the Rana Plaza collapse that has killed 1,127 as of today, and, more recently, a fire that killed eight), the call for labor reform in the Bangladeshi garment industry has grown louder and louder. As pressure mounts, both in Bangladesh and abroad, it seems that industry execs and government officials are finally taking the first steps towards creating a safer, more fair work environment in Bangladesh.
Terry Richardson’s getting pretty comfortable in front of the camera these days.
