Iconic actress Meryl Streep is on the cover of the January 2012 issue of American Vogue.
Vogue posted a number of preview images on their website. Click HERE to see those images and to read the article. It’s interesting how Vogue didn’t Vogueify her too much. I thought the pictures looked very natural and remained true to her style.
What a delightful surprise! It’s refreshing to see a very established (and more mature, if I may add) actress on the cover as opposed to the usual up-and-coming starlets.
Have you seen the new video from Rihanna? “We Found Love” has got to be my favourite track from her to date.
We found love in a hopeless place.
Behold the striking November 2011 issue of American Vogue. Rooney Mara, who’s in the new film The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, is on the cover shot by Mert & Marcus.
I’ve seen the movie ‘The Social Network’ in long-haul flights not once but many times but, yes, I had to google Vogue’s cover girl. That’s right. Rooney who? Excuse my ignorance. When was the last time you googled a Vogue (or most American fashion magazines) cover subject? Never, I’m sure! I simply couldn’t stop asking myself — WHO’S THAT GIRL?
In this day and age of formulaic magazine covers, it’s admirable that American Vogue is leading the way by featuring an actress that is not overexposed. I love the element of surprise, the element of mystery. Truly a breath of fresh air.
On the subject of Rooney — it’s all about transformation. Take a look at google images and you’ll see how she transformed herself for her role. Spectacular.
I can’t wait to get this issue!
They have celebrities attending the shows here in Mumbai, too. Took this video a few minutes before the star-studded, highly-anticipated Sabyasachi show.
Tweets and reports are pouring in that Amy Winehouse passed away today from a drug overdose. She was found dead at her flat in London.
Allow me to take a break from fashion. I can’t get enough of this ICONIC video from many, many years ago.
Haters gonna hate but Team Paris all the way! She outlived and outbillioned them all — she has 17 product lines and her perfume line alone is worth approx. US$1.3 billion.
Here’s a quick, behind-the-scenes video of Tobey Maguire’s fall/winter 2011 Prada menswear ad campaign photo shoot with David Sims.
I thought it was totally random, not to mention surprising, for Miuccia to use a celebrity for her fall/winter menswear ad campaign but the result, nonetheless, is quintessentially Prada. I love how Toby’s mysterious, curious and innocent look matches the collection’s aesthetic. There’s also that undeniable element of geekiness that makes it oh so cool. And those lurex pieces? Mark my words — they’re the new season’s must-have!
Once upon a time, I’ve looked up to the international editions of Vogue to find something new to inspire me. You know… something new, something that isn’t the same old, same old, something extraordinary. But what happens when most of the international Vogues become repetitive and the big elephant in the room, the grand-daddy of all Vogues, start flexing its muscles? Well, one cannot help but feel its powerful presence. This is what’s going on at the moment. American Vogue is on the right path (war path, perhaps?), taking me on this rollercoaster ride of glamorous extravaganza as of late. When young starlet Emma Watson of Harry Potter fame chopped her locks last year, the first thing that came to my mind was — VOGUE cover! Fast forward a year later, here’s Emma, in Prada, on the July 2011 cover of American Vogue. I love the transformation! Dudette is finally a lady.
I can’t wait to get this issue. Bravo Anna, bravo!
The CFDA awarded Lady Gaga the “Fashion Icon” award on Monday. Here’s her acceptance speech. Her quip about her text message exchange with Anna Wintour was hysterical.
Gotta love Anna for being a good sport.
Robyn has a new music video — Call Your Girlfriend!
