CR Fashion Book Carine Roitfield Launches Webite For CR Fashion Book

We’ve been waiting for months now and still there ’s a few more weeks  to go before Carine Roitfield’s much anticipated magazine, CR Fashion Book launches. Nonetheless, the CR website  is now live. On CRFashionBook.com, the ex editor-in-chief of  French Vogue  announced today the  premier issues theme as : Birth and Rebirth. We’re sure there is a nod t to the fact that she became grandmother in May but also an illustration of  the transformation/rebirth  she must have undergone as a creative powerhouse who continues to thrive and reinvent herself. Stay tuned for more updates!

Reese Witherspoon Vogue May

VogueReeseCover1 Reese Witherspoon Vogue May  

Actress Reese Witherspoon lands the cover of U.S. Vogue’s May issue. And it’s seeming more and more something has been decided at Vogue about the look of the cover. A shift seemed to occur with Lady Gaga and Rihanna, but one could have argued they were styled in a less straightlaced because they’re musicians, but no, this cover featuring the super-straight Reese is somehow different than covers past, too. It’s not just the hair and makeup, but something about the presentation of a well known subject so that she looks slightly unfamiliar.

More images on the next page (which seem in tone as always), featuring Witherspoon posing with an elephant, a tie in with an upcoming feature, “Water For Elephants,” in which she plays the part of a circus performer. Via Vogue.

Why Anna Wintour Sux by Cathy Horyn

07 January 2009, 20.58 | Posted in Uncategorized | No comments »

New York Times’ Cathy Horyn’s bread and butter has always been her willingness to go there when it comes to critiquing the fashion industry. It wouldn’t be THAT big of a deal except of course that we’re talking about fashion, which is notoriously all kissy-kissy to your face, but the meanest industry in all the land the very second you turn your back. So I guess I shouldn’t be shocked that Cathy did (a long overdue) scathing attack of Vogue, except that it IS Vogue for crissakes and at one point she is gonna have to face La Diabla herself, Anna Wintour, who everyone knows still wears fur cuz it’s great for concealing various and sundry razor blades and extra long knives.

Here’s one juicy excerpt (from an article that ran on New Year’s Eve–way to bury the story, oh-great-ballsy editors of the Times!):

No one at Vogue, least of all its editor in chief, Anna Wintour, could have been seriously stung by a recent letter from a reader complaining that the magazine was in a rut. After all, Ms. Wintour chose to publish the letter, which chided the magazine for featuring the same women — “Gwyneth Paltrow, Caroline Trentini, Gisele Bündchen, Nicole Kidman, Sienna Miller, blah, blah, blah,” as the reader, Kathryn Williams of San Diego, said. “I could make a calendar of your cover girls, and it would probably repeat year after year.” She added: “Let’s face it: Vogue is getting a bit stale. It is a pity, too — because the magazine is still much better than the others."

Hat tip: NY Magazine, which, what the heck happened over there? Suddenly they’re posting more than twice a week and the tone is, ummm, I don’t a tad more fashion-industry-esque?

LaBron & Tom Brady’s Woman on Cover of Vogue

LaBron LaBron & Tom Bradys Woman on Cover of Vogue

LeBron, as you can see, is on this month’s cover of Vogue. The photograph is arresting, I’ll give the man behind the camera that, but other than that there’s definitely shit about this image that irritates me, but rather than climb up on top of a soapbox (it’s way too early for that!), I’m gonna break this thing down like a report card:

Vogue’s willingness to put a black model on the cover even when the male subject is a brother: F (Though maybe this should be a “C” since this is very typical, come-to-be-expected kind of shit out of Vogue.)

Level of stertotypical poking at race relationships by pairing the hulking black man with the frail white chick: C

Hilariousness of dumb-ass/ignorant comments made by fashion bloggers attempting to comment on either LeBron or the game of hoops: B+

Wrongness of pairing Picasso-face (that would be Gisele) with LeBron when she already has an extremely high-profile relationship with a very famous– albeit not nearly as hulking–professional athlete (that would be frat-boy archtypeTom Brady): C+

Ickiness of being Gisele knowing that your boyfriend once had a semi-serious relationship with Tara Reid: A++++
