1. Laura, maybe the other designers didn’t choose you because no one could remember your name?
2. Does Wendy honestly think it’s a good thing to get inspired by Suede’s outfits?
3. Could the producers please provide us with some photographic evidence of Joanna Coles going to lots of discos?
1. What are the odds that all of these “all stars” actually know who each other is?
2. How awkward and uncomfortable is this Ivy/Casanova boss/assistant scenario?
3. Carolyn, this is the toughest all stars season yet? Do you realize there’s only been one other season?
4. Doesn’t the show somehow seem out of date since it’s still referring to Joanna Coles as the EIC of Marie Claire?
5. Has Joshua spent the last year or so working at a tanning salon in Jersey–or as Mitt Romney’s tan stand-in?
The fashion media world got a shock last week when it was announced that Joanna Coles was leaving Marie Claire to helm Cosmo.
So when we ran into her at yesterday’s DKNY show we had to ask her about her plans to make Cosmo known for its fashion as well as its sex tips. And what about her role on Project Runway? Coles upped Marie Claire‘s TV presence–so could a Cosmo reality TV show be in the work?
When news broke yesterday that Marie Claire Editor in Chief Joanna Coles was making the switch to Cosmopolitan, we wondered what exactly the newly-minted EIC had planned for the sex-focused lady title. Will Coles, who helped steer Marie Claire through a difficult time in publishing, and who is as fashion savvy as she is social Read more →
Well, that was fast.
Just hours after announcing that current EIC Joanna Coles would be moving to Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire has named her replacement.
Anne Fulenwider, who has been editor-in-chief of Brides since October 2011, will take the reins at Marie Claire. This is not the first time Fulenwider has worked with the Marie Claire team; prior to her role as EIC of Brides, Fulenwider worked for two years under Coles as executive editor of the mag.
1. Isn’t it good to know that bobbin cases still present problems, even in the presence of all stars?
2. How uncomfortable was Mondo when Joanna Coles brought her lint roller out to play?
3. With Angela Lindvall’s appearance in it last night, how many times do you think Stella McCartney‘s polka dot dress has been worn by celebs?
4. Wasn’t Austin’s Hasidic runway hairdo the most brilliant/vile thing you’ve ever seen?
5. Was that tote bag necessary in Mondo’s first look?
1. First things first, didn’t The Muppets come out about two months ago?
2. Isn’t this show’s lack of a German accent throwing you off?
3. What happened to Austin’s voluminous back-bow concept? And how did it transform into a side-saddle fanny pack bow on each hip?
4. Anthony, why aren’t you embarrassed at your lack of ability to install a zipper? On the all-star series of all places?
1. (Question for Bryce’s query, “Did you ever think you’d be able to speak to a fashion editor from a major magazine?”) Bryce, did you actually ever plan on becoming a real designer? That kind of interaction kind of goes with the territory
2. Is it really possible, like actually possible, that two people would get the same fabric from Mood. yeah….no.
3. Cecilia, are you sure that Mood has yellow lighting? Sure it can be a bit dark in its weirder corners (aka: home to all the neon faux fur), but yellow is not the way I’d describe it. Perhaps you should see an ophthalmologist, you may be colorblind.
4. Viktor’s using muslin?! There’s real design procedure going on?! oh wait…here comes the glue…
5. Nina, how can we get a hold of your Preen shirt? And how does it look better on you than it did on the runway? That almost never happens.
Glossies had a rough go of it during the first half of this year. Sales for all major fashion titles were down, with the exception of Vogue (up more than 12%) and Allure (flat, which is sort of a victory.)
Vogue’s secret? Putting Lady Gaga on its March cover. That cover alone sold 100,000 copies more than Vogue’s 2010 March cover, WWD is reporting. Reality stars are also newsstand gold. Glamour’s Kim Kardashian cover and People Style Watch’s Lauren Conrad cover were huge sellers, though both those titles’ sales are down overall. And our favorite blonde girl-next-door-types? Glenda Bailey, Harper Bazaar’s EIC told WWD, “It would be a lot easier if we could feature proven sellers like Jennifer Aniston or Gwyneth Paltrow on the cover every month.” No one mentioned Sarah Jessica Parker, surprisingly, who is still getting quite a bit of play on covers.
And the cover stinkers?
