Kate Moss David Bowie Vogue

  • For the January 2012 issue of Vogue Paris…we have David Bowie! Or, Kate Moss‘ interpretation of Ziggy Stardust under the lens of Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. What a way to bring in the new year.

    (Disclaimer: the gorgeous photo, below, came to mind as soon as I laid eyes on the Vogue cover! A mashup.)

  • The new H&M collaboration has been announced (yes, they knock them out like scrambled eggs), and the next designer is…Marni! Sweden’s most successful retailer announced their Spring/Summer 2012 partnership with Italian label’s founder Consuelo Castiglioni, set to be released on March 8th in over 260 stores worldwide.

    And yes, there is already a video sneak peak for you, below. HELLO, CLASHING PRINT MENSWEAR, I LOVE YOU.

    “I wanted to create a true Marni wardrobe by revisiting all our favourite pieces in signature fabrics and prints. As always, I love juxtaposing prints and colours, mixing modern tribal with Bauhaus graphic and adding sporty utilitarian elements.”
    Consuelo Castiglioni


  • Today, the white dress which Amy Winehouse wore on the European cover of her second album, Back to Black, raised over $67,000 (£43,200) when it was sold at auction. The dress was ‘won’ by a private fashion museum in Chile, who’s money will go to Amy’s charitable foundation which supports programs to help vulnerable young people.

  • Ever wondered which designers are searched the more than others online? Well, according to Bing’s annual search trends for 2011, Gucci tops the list. (Perhaps Kreayshawn is to blame?)

    Other top ten brands included John Galliano (legal troubles), J.Crew (lesbian/divorce), Guess(?), and Chanel twice over — once for the brand name itself (because it’s fabulous) and once for founder Coco Chanel (because she’s fabulous).

  • Big news for fashionistas in the Netherlands (and beyond)! Condé Nast has confirmed that Vogue will begin publishing a Netherlands edition in 2012, and it to be edited by the recently resigned editor of Dutch Glamour, Karin Swerink.

    “Holland is a thriving market in the heart of Western Europe with a growing hunger for luxury. It is natural for Vogue.”
    Jonathan Newhouse, Condé Nast International’s chairman

  • Stella Tennant Italian Vogue Planking

    • You’ve seen the Vogue Italia cover, now you can see Stella Tennant planking in the accompanying editorial.
    • Apparently, though the CFDA has a recommended age limit of 16 for models walking in shows, it has been reported that 14-year-old Kylie Jenner (of the “Kardashian Klan“) will walk in Avril Lavigne’s Abbey Dawn show during Fashion Week. I guess when Avril’s boyfriend is Kylie’s half-brother (Brody Jenner), the rules need not apply. Both Kim and Kourtney Kardashian are expected to sit front row at the show.
    • Fashion designer Nicole Miller will feature as one of the designers getting advice from Joe Zee in the second series of his Sundance show “All On The Line“.
    • “Have you noticed how much make-up girls are wearing these days? It’s because it’s cheaper than buying clothes. I love beauty products. At Gucci I’d spend days working with a make-up artist getting the show to look right. I was never drawn to walking in women’s shoes that’s maybe why some of them hurt. I never had a desire to wear the clothes. I’m probably the only man in England who doesn’t want to dress in drag. But make-up? That I’m serious about.” – Tom Ford to the Telegraph
    • Blonde model trend! First there was Heidi Klum with Project Runway, then there was Angela Lindvall who was recently picked to host a special all-star edition of Project Runway. Now? Fellow sunshine blonde Molly Sims is commandeering the latest Runway spinoff, Project Accessory.
    • When asked what he would save if his house were burning down Kaiser Karl Lagerfeld responded, “Which house? I have several.” Not newsworthy, but note-worthy.

    Vogue Italia Stella Tennant Corset
    You only need a quick glance at the title of Vogue Italia‘s September issue to get the jist. Avant Garde, it certainly is. Combining the magic of photographer Steven Meisel and Photoshop (…I mean, it has to be), we are presented with both a gorgeously haunting image of Stella Tennant and the tiniest waist in the Universe. With runway-worthy sculpted hair and an incredible play on proportions, the pair of scissors in her right hand and enormous nose ring were actually the last thing I noticed. Meaningfully menacing? Whatever the inspiration, I am beyond titillated.

    Tom Ford Womenswear Vogue
    As the year comes to it’s editorial end, Tom Ford previews his six-years-late return to womenswear in “Mr. Ford Returns”. The Vogue spread was photographed by Steven Meisel and styled by the empowering Edward Enninful. The beauties are all big-time, with the likes of Karen Elson, Stella Tennant, Amber Valletta, Joan Smalls, Anja Rubik, Carolyn Murphy, and Edita Vilkeviciute in the gorgeous garments. View Post
