Many a preppy princess was sad to hear of the passing of Lilly Pulitzer. Her bright patterns have outfitted sorority girls for decades (and maybe, if she was lucky enough, her fraternity beau would sport a matching LP tie for formal).
We think Lilly Pulitzer was at her best during her 1960s and 1970s heyday, so we pulled some of our favorite vintage LP images and ads.
Take a look.
That Claudia Schiffer made any missteps throughout her illustrious (and still going strong) modeling career is hard to believe. The blue-eyed blonde has been the face of everything from Chanel to Guess (twice), covered Vogue innumerable times and was even immortalized in Zoolander.
However, even supermodels who look like Brigitte Bardot suffer from regrets and missed opportunities, like, you know not getting an Hermès bag named after you.
This year marks the 120th anniversary of Vogue‘s first-ever issue. Crazy, right? It doesn’t look a day over 15! (Kidding, 16. Hello, health initiative!) So in honor of this massive achievement, the heralded fashion glossy has released a list of the 10 most prominently featured faces on its cover over the past 12 decades. We Read more →

The revival of ’90s supermodels continues. In her first Chanel campaign since that decade, Linda Evangelista is the newest face of Chanel Eyewear. She succeeds fellow ’90s supermodel and current (revived) Guess girl Claudia Schiffer. Should we just stop calling them ’90s supermodels and instead refer to them as forever supermodels? They can’t be stopped. Read more →

Guess Which Famous Faces Have All Been Guess Girls? From Claudia Schiffer to Adriana Lima, it’s hard to believe how many fashion faces once held the ‘Guess Girl’ title. Here’s a retrospective on some of the ultimates.
When Claudia Schiffer’s Guess ads dropped yesterday we literally had trouble deciphering between the current ones and the ones from 1989. I mean, the woman has not aged a day! In 23 years! Then today, Christy Turlington goes ahead and shows up on Tatler also preternaturally unchanged.
This got us thinking about all our favorite 90s supermodels–Naomi, Cindy, Elle, etc.,–whose modeling careers are still kicking, well into their forties. And it’s not hard to see why: The ladies are as gorgeous as they were twenty years ago. And there’s nary a boob that has dropped even an inch. Don’t believe us? Click through the gallery below for a side-by-side comparison of some of our favorite supermodels today–and way back when.
We were all completely blown away by the images released earlier today of Claudia Schiffer’s new campaign for Guess, twenty-three years after the German supermodel originally posed for the brand. Two decades later, the lady still looks as Guess-girl flawless as she did back in 1989, before she attained her supermodel status.
It got us to thinking: In the thirty years of Guess’s existence, which other big-names got their industry start modeling for the brand? We did a little digging, and as it turns out, there have been quite a few more than you might Guess (ha!). It seems like Victoria’s Secret (you know, that other brand known for its seriously sexy campaign starlets) has a habit of plucking its Angels from the pool of genetically blessed Guess girls. And then, there have also been a few Guess missteps (coughParis Hilton). Click through for some of the lucky girls who’ve followed in Claudia’s well-pedicured footsteps: Scoring both a Guess contract and the (generally) good career fortune that seems to follow, with a few exceptions.
To celebrate 30 years of Guess, the denim brand has hired back one of its most iconic faces, German supermodel Claudia Schiffer, as well as photographer Ellen Von Unwerth, for a nostalgic black & white ad campaign that recalls those from the early ’90s which helped launch Schiffer’s career. Since Guess ads are some of Read more →
Chanel just launched thelittleblackjacket.chanel.com, an “e-exhibition” of Lagerfeld-lensed models and celebrities wearing black Chanel jackets styled by Carine Roitfeld (a live exhibition just opened in Tokyo). While the website is not the easiest to navigate, it really made me want to buy The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s Classic Revisited (only $39 on Amazon). Seeing all Read more →
Earlier today, the Internet was all a flutter with the newly released nudie pics of an extremely pregnant (it’s been what, ten months now?) Jessica Simpson on the cover of Elle. The April 2012 spread was photographed by Carter Smith and styled by Joe Zee, but they clearly got some inspiration, elsewhere. Since Annie Leibovitz shot a naked and pregnant Demi Moore for Vanity Fair twenty-one years ago, it seems like pregnant celebs everywhere have been clamoring to strip down for the newsstands.n At this point, it’s practically a right of passage for expectant stars, as well as an informal announcement that “exclusive first baby pictures!” will be shopped around in the near future. Is pregnancy a valid excuse for famous women (most of whom would scoff at an offer from Playboy in normal circumstances) to take it all off?
Take a look at our investigation of the fascinating (and at times, extremely uncomfortable) history of the naked, pregnant magazine cover. Do you think it’s a celebration or just exploitation? And does a pregnant naked person really make you want to buy a magazine? We want to hear what you think.
