Quote of the Day: Anna Wintour’s Daughter on Why She’s Not in Fashion

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: News,

Bee Shaffer at this year's Met Gala

"I'm 5ft 5in and I have huge boobs, like I'm not going to wear the same thing as Karlie Kloss... I've never been fashion-forward, I'm not that interested in fashion. I kind of wear the same thing all the time or, I know it's cliched to say, but jeans and T-shirts."

- Bee Shaffer, the daughter of Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, explains why she never followed in her mom's footsteps (despite looking fabulous at this year's Met Gala - photo featured above).

Quote of the Day: British ‘Vogue’ Editor on Thin Models

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Health & Beauty, Models, News,

Alexandra Shulman

"People always say 'Why do you have thin models? That's not what real people look like,' but nobody really wants to see a real person looking like a real person on the cover of Vogue... I think Vogue is a magazine that's about fantasy to some extent and dreams, and an escape from real life... People don't want to buy a magazine like Vogue to see what they see when they look in the mirror. They can do that for free... I get fed up with having to deal with the question of why are models thin, that sort of bores me."

- Alexandra Shulman, editor of Vogue UK, explains why you won't be seeing any real-sized models under her reign of the fashion glossy.

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, Hairstyles,

Jared Leto

“It’s really important that he doesn’t look like a woman - that’s the biggest challenge. It’s hard to have him not end up on the ‘best hair’ lists - and that definitely hasn’t been our intention. He does have amazing hair, so it’s kind of inevitable.”

- Jared Leto's hairstylist Chase Kusero talks about the challenges of perfecting the Dallas Buyers Club red carpet looks.

Roberto Cavalli and Michael Kors

Quote of the Day: Prabal Gurung on Runway Diversity

Prabal Gurung

"I always say, cute is cute. Whether you're white, Asian, black — if you're cute, you're cute. I see no discrimination and I've never been like that. When I use a black model it's not because I want to make a statement. It's because I think they're beautiful... It's everyone' responsibility, whether it's the designer, stylists, writers, editors, to understand that beauty is universal. Come on — it's 2014."

- Nepalese-American designer Prabal Gurung addresses his feelings on diversity among models on the runways at this year's New York Fashion Week.

Linda Rodin

- Linda Rodin - a 65-year-old model, former stylist, and successful owner to an eponymous skincare line - points out the absurdity with retouching young models in fashion campaigns these days.

Quote of the Day: Lady Gaga on Fashion

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, News,

Lady Gaga

"Fashion is that thing that saved me from being sad. I've always cared about my costumes and my clothes. When I leave my apartment I like to look pretty for my fans but not [in a] hot sexy girl [way]—I don't care about that, I just want to make you feel something with what I wear. I want you to feel happy and enjoy the theatre of my life the way that I do. No matter what happens with my music and wherever I go that—that heart of that glamorous girl in New York will never be gone. This is who I am and its never been an act and its never been marketing. This is me all the way to my core and fashion is a big part of my life."

- "Applause" singer Lady Gaga claims that her eccentric style is all a part of her own personality and not a marketing act. Interesting, considering that Miley Cyrus is claiming that her appearance is all an act.

Greta Gerwig at the premiere of 'Her'

“I want to go a little bit more Sofia Vergara, if she were an awkward German girl... [My stylist Erin] helps guide me.

Quote of the Day: Jennifer Lawrence on ‘The Fashion Police’

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, Health & Beauty, News,

Jennifer Lawrence

"There are shows like The Fashion Police that are just showing these generations of young people to judge people based on all the wrong values and that it's OK to point at people and call them ugly or fat. 'They call it 'fun' and they say 'welcome to the real world' - and that shouldn't be the real world, it's going to continue being the real world if we keep it that way. We have to stop treating each other like that and stop calling each other fat."

- Jennifer Lawrence takes a stand against body shaming in the media. Don't you just love every word that comes out of this woman's mouth?
