One of the things we've always loved about Love has been its ability to balance a playful, not-so-serious attitude towards fashion with a reverence for the industry's designers and models--and lots of tech savvy. This is exemplified by the British glossy's new fifth anniversary issue, which pays homage to--who else--Minnie Mouse, with a little help from Georgia Jagger, Cara Delevingne and Edie Campbell wearing custom Minnie ears done by Gucci, Miu Miu, Prada and Louis Vuitton.
It's that most magical time of the year. No, not the holidays--it's spring ad campaign reveal season! Today's present is Gisele Bundchen for Versace
In the world of fashion there is a small yet consistent collection of photographers who get the majority of work for major publications and brands. In fact, many of them seem to have quite the monopoly on the fashion world. Legends like Richard Avedon and Irving Penn continued to work prolifically up until the time they passed away, and that seems to be what is so great about being behind the camera instead of in front of it. Top photographers are given the chance to work for years in an industry where most figures are in one day and out the next. But how do we differentiate one top photographer from another? We'll show you what to look for from visual style, what publications they regularly appear in, as well as recent ongoing collaborations with brands and models of some of the top working fashion photographers of today.

Check out the pix and highlights from Stewart's interview with Lynn Hirschberg in which she talks about how her big break involved singing a song about a dreidl, says she's still insecure about her "tomboy" quality, and opens up about saying goodbye to Bella Swan.
We hyperventilated just a little bit when we saw the lead beauty story in WWD this morning. Tom Ford, arbiter of all things crave-worthy, is launching a full color cosmetics collection, available this September. It is a whopping 132-piece collection and also includes skin care. Ford told WWD that he’d wanted to do a color collection since his days at Gucci, but that people were not “convinced that I had a voice in color until the lipsticks started selling out again and again.” (That would be his 12-piece Private Blend Lip Color Collection, now legendary.)
