No eating disorders or underage models, at least that’s what they’re telling us.
Beginning with the June issue ofVogue, which hits newsstands this month, readers can expect healthier beauties in its pages. The New York Times reported this morning that all 19 international editions of Voguehave adopted a policy that sets a strong precedent in the health and age of its models.
Under the new rules, Voguemagazines will not work with models under the age of 16 or who appear to have an eating disorder. They outline the importance of models who both appear healthy and “help to promote a healthy body image.”
Jonathan Newhouse, Condé Nast International chairman said today that they want the magazines to “reflect their commitment to the health of the models who appear on the pages and the well-being of their readers.”
Madonna opened up with VOGUE splattered all across the stage, giving Vogue some great advertising. So how much did Vogue pay her? Nothing. They got free advertising and they were really happy about it.
American Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour commented: “We’re thrilled and so very grateful to Madonna to have been part of such a spectacular performance.”
So the lesson here, kids, is that if you want to use Vogue for anything, go for it! They will thank you personally for the free advertising. Anna will bake you a cake and call you her bestie.
I’m just kidding! They will probably send you a letter requesting some money for compensation. So don’t think about doing that.
But in serious, I’m pretty sure she had the rights to use the name? Or do you even need to request it? Shouldn’t Madonna be paying Vogue to use their name? Not sure what’s going on, but hey at least everyone’s happy.
Madonna, you can use my name anytime! And Anna, you’re my bestie.
This is what happens when you overlay many covers of Vogue together, you get beautiful interesting art. There’s a pattern to each of them. From this you can learn optimal symetry and placement for a cover. Why is this important? If you have to ask, you’re not getting it.
Either way, enjoy! These make beautiful abstract art.
Photoshop Takes Another Finger: Lilly Grace (Vogue)
How many fingers will it take to satisfy Photoshop’s hunger? It apparently has a huge craving for human parts.
This time, it doesn’t spare the children or women as Kate Moss’s daughter has been thrown in the mix.
Lila Grace, Moss’ daughter, seems to have lost the tips of her fingers.
It’s not only a dumb mistake, but also sort of silly: how many rolls of fat or excessive wrinkles did 8-year-old Lila Grace have on her hands? Just how unkempt were her fingernails to warrant such a clumsy Photoshop fail?
Photoshop, please think of the children! They’re too young! *weeps*
Steven Meisel’s Spoof of QVC for Vogue Italia January 2012
I like it! Steven Meisel decided to make a spoof of the QVC or home shopping network for Vogue Italia.
Vogue describes the shoot as “an artistically ironic simulation of telesales programs, nowadays much in vogue in the United States. Where cult garments and must-have accessories, from purses to shoes, to the most sophisticated jewellery, are presented by It-girls and chic ladies.”
The shoot, called ‘The Collections on IVC’ appears in the February 2012 issue of Italian Vogue , and Meisel created this genius video on Vogue.it (complete with supermarket musak) to go alongside it.
