Beyonce Fake Pregnancy

  • I’m sure the only way you don’t know about this is if you purposefully avoid the news, but eh, I’m giving my two cents on the ‘Beyonce Fake Pregnancy‘ enchilada.

    Apparently, some reliable sources (aka everyone’s eyes) saw Beyonce’s baby bump shift and fold in two during an appearance on Sunday Night HD.

    The alleged prosthetic baby was pretty obvious as a fake. No belly – of that size – has the ability to do that. Even if made of fat.

    But riddle me this, instead of shouting ‘Beyonce is a Fake!’, might it be worth considering she would wear extra padding simply to avoid the media ‘bump watch’ that plagues most celebrity women?

  • Conde Nast have kicked it up a notch. The magazine moguls of Vogue and other major titles have decided to start developing television and online programming based on Conde Nast personalities, articles, and general brands. This entertainment division will be headed by Dawn Ostroff, the powerhouse that who helped develop major hits like Gossip Girl and America’s Next Top Model. Movies will also be a focus once it is off the ground. Hello, The September Issue 2!

  • The most – dare I say – famous blogger in the world has landed her second cover of L’Officiel! This time, Tavi Gevinson/Style Rookie landed the cover in the Netherlands, and was literally stretched to the style max with the help of stylist Alex Aikiu and legendary photographer Jean-Paul Goude.

  • You know the old phrase ‘starting off on the right foot’? Abdulkader Sankari and his son Ahmed don’t seem to. The duo recently bought fashion label Gianfranco Ferré. After which they didn’t attend the first meeting to discuss the brand’s relaunch under their ownership. Instead, they sent their lawyer. Woops.

  • Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend, Florence Brudenell-Bruce, is the new face Aspinal of London! A perfect – albeit slightly scandalous – pick.

  • Was anyone else a Girl Scout? I was – and it was absolutely legendary to me. I even remember my troop number (though, I still hold a grudge towards never actually ‘achieving’ my cooking badge). Anyway! The big news is that Girl Scouts are reinventing their badges for the first time since 1987.

    Seeyalata to the Fashion, Fitness and Makeup badge (quel horreur!) but a big hello to a Science of Style badge that has girls learn about nanotechnology in fabrics and the chemistry of sunscreens! They will also be introducing badges for locavore awareness, financial literacy, and website design. Can I sign up again?

  • The Victorias Secret Fashion Show has now become such a big deal, it has almost ended up as a Fashion Week in itself. This year, it is only being taken to bigger heights with both Kanye West and Maroon 5 as the musical guests! Interestingly, both Kanye and Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine are dating VS Angels. For Levine, its legs-a-million Anne Vyalitsyna. For West, it is ultra-model Chanel Iman. Quadruplet dance off in a glitter rainstorm, please?

  • Super Size Me‘s infamous documentary filmmaker, Morgan Spurlock, is no friend of Abercrombie and Fitch. When he approached the Californicated brand to sponsor his latest project, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, the conversation went as described:

    “Trying to get brands on board for this film was bruising to my ego. Abercrombie & Fitch told me I was fat, ugly, pale and had the moustache of a pornographer so they weren’t going to sponsor my film.”

    Nice.

  • Kate Moss Vogue UK
    Mrs Jamie Hince – aka supermodel Kate Moss – nabbed next month’s cover of Vogue UK in a Miu Miu dress. The cover and accompanying shoot were lensed by Mario Testino. This is probably the best Kate cover I’ve seen in years. Love does a model good.

    That said, I can’t be too wrong to expect there is a severely-bobbed, miffed Anna Wintour somewhere. Londoners got the Moss-Hince marriage cover a month before Vogue US was set to, didn’t we? Conde Nast competiton heats up?

    Emmanuelle Alt
    Emmanuelle Alt has been named the successor to Carine Roitfeld, who announced her departure as editor-in-chief of French Vogue just before Christmas. Condé Nast France president Xavier Romatet made the announcement in a press conference today. Totally called it. Next psychic fashion prediction? A never ending spread supply of Balmain, military influence, and Daria Werbowy.

    Carine Roitfeld French Vogue
    The rumours are true: Carine Roitfeld is resigning from French Vogue. After 10 years at the helm of the rock and roll-esque fashion magazine, Roitfeld has announced she is stepping down as Editor-in-Chief by saying “- it’s 10 years that I’m editor of the magazine. I think it’s time to do something different.”

    Roitfeld confirmed that she had informed Jonathan Newhouse, CEO of Conde Nast International, of her decision to pursue new projects. “I have no problem with Jonathan, and he understood me very well. I had so much freedom to do everything I wanted. I think I did a good job. When everything is good, maybe I think it’s the time to do something else. I have no plan at all.”

    The Parisian’s replacement will announced in the coming weeks. Ten bucks on Emmanuelle Alt.

    Aliona Doletskaya

    Old: Aliona Doletskaya

    Russian Vogue’s editor, Aliona Dolestkaya, is gone! Jonathan Newhouse, president of Condé Nast International, sent a memo to staffers confirming Doletskaya’s resignation which read:

    “Some time ago, Aliona Doletskaya told me that she would like to leave the Vogue Russia editor-in-chief’s post, which she has occupied for almost 13 years, and start a new life, probably to write a book or try her hand in a new field,” said Newhouse. “As Russia—as well as the rest of the world—was still going through economically hard times, I asked Aliona to wait for a better time to do this. Now, it’s obvious that we are coming out of the crisis, thus I don’t want to interfere with Aliona’s plans anymore. I accept her decision to leave the magazine with great sorrow… In the near future we will announce the name of the next editor-in-chief of Vogue Russia.”

    Today it has been announced that her replacement will be Tatler Russia’s Editor in Chief Victoria Davydova. The move is effective immediately.

    “Victoria Davydova is one of the most professional, experienced, and talented editors in the Russian market,” Newhouse has been quoted as saying. “Behind her is the experience of launching two completely different magazines within Condé Nast. All of this makes Vika a perfect choice for the role of chief editor of Vogue Russia.” Ksenia Solovieva, a former deputy editor of Tatler Russia, will take over Davydova’s position.

    Where is Aliona going, then? A couple of years ago she was pegged as Anna Wintour‘s pending replacement. This could get interesting.
