Items Du Jour: Ralph Lauren Casts Plus-Size Model, Rashida Flaunts It

George Michael and Kate Moss+ After having caused previous controversy with their Photoshop-happy campaigns, Ralph Lauren has hired plus-size model Robyn Lawley for their upcoming campaign. The 23 year-old size 8 model has previously been published in Vogue Italia and French Elle.

+ George Michael and Kate Moss prove that they're besties on next month's French Vogue cover, which looks more like a paparazzi shot than a major fashion publication's cover.

+ Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones leaves the laughs at home for her Flaunt photo shoot, in which she trades her girl-next-door image for that of a Victoria's Secret model.

+ What do you do if you're Adele and a major label like Burberry asks you to be the face of their next campaign, yet you can't wear any of their clothes? Easy! You demand that they create some plus-size styles or the deal is a no go.

Carine Roitfeld Not Competing with Vogue

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Editorials, News,

Carine RoitfeldCarine Roitfeld insists her new magazine will not compete with Vogue.

The former French Vogue editor - who was at the helm of the respected fashion publication for over 10 years - is set to launch CR Fashion Book and promises she is creating "something different" to what is already on the market.

"The name's not a big surprise, but oh well. [It is a] celebration of fashion and creativity. Vogue is a very beautiful magazine, an institution, and I learned so much working there. You can't put yourself into competition with a magazine like Vogue; you have to create something new, something different."

The magazine will be produced in New York and over half of its 50,000 copies will be distributed in Europe - priced around $10 - with the remainder in the US and Asia. The quarterly publication will also have an online presence focusing on art, culture and fashion and not otherwise present in the print version.

Karl Lagerfeld thinks that Emmanuelle Alt will blossom in her new role at French Vogue.

The Chanel designer says he is a fan of the 41-year-old - who was recently named as the publication's new editor-in-chief - and thinks she has what it takes to be Carine's Roitfeld's replacement.

"Her style is her big shoulders, long legs, tight jeans, sleeves up to the elbow, one hip out. I personally like her. She's a handsome French woman. She has a style, but is it enough to make a whole magazine? As editor-in-chief, she may blossom."

I totally trust her to manage this prestigious brand and develop it in all its dimensions, including digital," said Xavier Romatet, president of Conde Nast France, which publishes French Vogue.

Pregnant Lily Allen at Givenchy—A pregnant Lily Allen showed up at Givenchy in some chic pregnancy wear. True to Fall/Winter looks, she kept it simple and Parisian with a gray long coat, white blouse, and black pumps.

Glee star Lea Michele has become quite the fashion darling, striking a pose with Zac Posen. With her nude robe-like dress, I’d say that she has some more styling etiquette to learn.

—Alber Elbaz is probably the sweetest, most caring designer. The Lanvin creative gave his models the option of wearing comfy gladiator sandals (at the last minute!) for his Spring/Summer 2011 show.

—After scoring Vogue Paris‘s coveted 90th anniversary cover, Lara Stone is right back on Vogue—this time, it’s in her native UK mag.

—Finally taking a cue from some sensible publicists, American Apparel attempts to save the brand’s image in some new ads that feature a less-creepy Dov in the face of their financial woes. He just still couldn’t resist shooting the ads in his bed.

—Traditional and iconic American swimsuit model Marisa Miller changes things up for 944, sporting a dark bob wig and gloves—a far cry from her usual California-esque look.

French Vogue Celebrates 90th Anniversary With Lara Stone’s Breasts

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


While French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld made it clear that the magazine's 90th anniversary issue was going to be big, I didn't realize that they meant zooming in on model 's large chest for the cover! "Vogue Paris has always played the card of audacity. We couldn't do a lukewarm issue," Roitfeld said. Again, I never expected to disappoint; however, I don't necessarily agree with bringing the supposedly-classy fashion pages down to Playboy status. Is the October issue of the fashion glossy too much or just the right amount of shocking?
