We always love smiling models, frankly.
And they all look so happy!
If anyone has the power to elevate the ordinary, to make the mundane chic, it’s superstar stylist Carine Roitfeld. This is the woman who styled a $9.50 disposable painter’s jumpsuit from The Home Depot seven different ways for a striking editorial. The next throwaway item Miss Roitfeld is declaring chic? Dust bags. You know, those flimsy cotton drawstring sacks your fancy bags come in.
So why did Roitfeld feature them?
If Cannes has the most glamorous red carpet of the year, then the AmFar Gala, held annually during the film festival, is the ultra-ultra glam cherry on top. This year’s gala, held at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, saw A-listers like Jessica Chastain and Sharon Stone and models-of-the-moment Joan Smalls, Lily Donaldson and more, stomp the Read more →
Fashion and food are truly having a love fest lately. Karlie Kloss launched a line of kookies, Jourdan Dunn has her own cooking show (so do we, for that matter), and we were pleasantly surprised by the amount of butter found in our fave fashion industry insiders’ Thanksgiving recipes. Next up on the food/fashion continuum? A cook book written by models.
We caught up with the model before the holidays to find out more about the book and what kind of recipes his model friends contributed (because, yes, for the last time, they really do eat!). Read on.
James Franco, renaissance man, is back with another video for 7 For All Mankind, his sixth for the denim brand. Past installments, which all feature Franco as a vampire and center on a “Hollywood Resurrection” theme, have featured Lou Doillon and Cody Horn. Next up, we’ve got an exclusive look at Franco’s latest starring Lily Donaldson looking impossibly cool motorcycle. #hairenvy. Click through to watch the video.
So, can you guess what our favorite part of last night’s Olympics closing ceremonies was? While there ended up being plenty of fashion-related topics to discuss from the actual games, nothing compared to this. Aside from that epic Spice Girls reunion (more on that later), we pretty much died when Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Stella Read more →
More fashion from Cannes! While the film festival could easily be mistaken for a big celebrity fashion show, this time it was on an actual runway. Last night’s amfAR gala was apparently full of entertainment–a charity auction involving massages from Heidi Klum, music performances from Fun and Jessie J, Karl Lagerfeld, and, for the first Read more →
One diet pill company has gotten very, um, creative when it comes to viral marketing. Yesterday, the Twitter accounts of several models including Joan Smalls, Lily Donaldson, Jourdan Dunn, and Toni Garrn, were hacked to sell diet pills, the fine folks at Fashin are reporting. Apparently, once followers clicked on the link posted, a virus Read more →
As WWD‘s recent report of the best-and-worst selling issues of 2011 proved, celebrity covers sell magazines plain and simple.
But while the report is a good indication of which celebrities we can expect to see more of on covers (Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Aniston), and which ones we probably won’t (Justin Bieber, Reese Witherspoon), it doesn’t necessarily paint the whole picture. Because while the glossies are printed in the United States, many have dozens of worldwide editions which frequently use reprints (both covers and content) from their North American counterpart. So are the best-selling US celebrities consistent with those who showed up most around the world?
The Kardashian appeal tends to dwindle when you take the overwhelming North American market out of the picture, so logic would indicate that cover giants Jennifer Aniston and Sarah Jessica Parker would pull out in front, right? Well, that’s not always the case.
We take a look at six big titles which have editions all around the world including Cosmopolitan, Elle, Glamour, Harper’s Bazaar, InStyle, and Marie Claire, and who showed up the most where. The results might surprise you.
