Anja Rubik for Vogue Paris June/July 2009 Cover

Anja Rubik for Vogue Paris June/July 2009

The much-awaited and highly-anticipated Vogue Paris cover featuring Anja Rubik is finally here. Although veteran Anja’s been around the fashion circuit for ages, it’s her first French Vogue cover.

Anja Rubik for Vogue Paris Magazine Cover, June/July 2009 issue

Dutch duo Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin took the photo.

I’m not a big fan of studio shots on the covers of magazines but the world is going through a recession so it’s quite understable why more and more mags go through that route.

As much as I adore Carine Roitfeld and Vogue Paris, I feel this cover was a let down.

In any case, good job on Anja for this well-deserved cover. It’s about time!

Boy you gotta love the Chinese. People of the world, let me show you how to get your man to buy you a car.

Man oh man oh man oh man. Can you imagine the sort of shit you and I would be able to score if getting something that you want is as easy as throwing a fit?

I wonder what the lovely feminazis over at Jezebel have to say about this.

Posing Guide

Posing Guide

In light of that whole Alec Baldwin and Filipina mail order bride joke brouhaha, I saw this poster at the photo developing shop the other day. I wanted to print some photos (white border please) for a scrapbook project.

Anyhoo, I simply could not believe my eyes when I saw this on the wall. Now I know why some photos look a certain ‘way’.

Posing Guide for Filipina Mail Order Brides

I wish I brought my camera with me (instead of using my cell) to get a clearer picture. I laughed so hard when I saw the poster until it hit me.

Here in the Philippines, photo developing shops also act as mini studios where anyone under the sun could get photos taken for whatever purpose. When you look at the poster, half of those poses are so sexually-charged and sleazy. It’s almost bone-chilling to think of a photographer to use the said guide as a point of reference to unsuspecting gullible souls.

I dunno. What do you think?
