Kim Kardashian Might Have Landed the Cover of Vogue

What Kimye wants, Kimye gets. Which means when Kanye wishes to see Kim on the cover of Vogue, Anna Wintour makes it happen. And apparently there’s nothing anyone can do about it, as a well-placed source has confirmed that the shoot wrapped yesterday in Los Angeles.

If there’s one thing this celeb couple can teach us, it’s that perseverance pays off – which is why I’m adding “Vogue cover girl” to my bucket list.

Pucker Up: Vogue’s Top 10 Red Lipsticks

Blood-red lips. It’s one of the most classic makeup looks in the book. A simple swipe of red lipstick, and boom – you instantly exude sex appeal (see: Marilyn Monroe). The only hard part? Picking out the right shade for your pout.

Red Lipstick

I’ve spent hours by the makeup counters testing out red lipsticks. Should I go blue-based? Or maybe more orange-toned? After puckering up for shade after shade, they all start to blend together and I wind up going home sans lipstick. Tragic, I know.  But, as if in answer to my prayers, Vogue has just rounded up the ten best red lipsticks out there – and just in time for all my holiday parties. Now I just need a few teeth whitening strips, and I’m good to go.

See the ten best lipsticks on Vogue.

Laid-Back Chic: Nicole Richie Talks L.A. Vintage

There’s no denying that Hollywood-trainwreck-turned-style-icon Nicole Richie knows boho – or, what Vogue Daily calls “L.A. vintage.” The mother of three sat with Vogue‘s Lynn Yaeger to talk about her love for the 1970s-inspired, Joni-Mitchell-meets-Manolos style that she sports so well.

“I love the overall freedom of that time, the freedom of dressing back then!” Richie says. “The idea of clashing didn’t exist. I am a huge fan of classic rock, and I love the relationship between the music and the clothes.”

Nic, we’re all about experimenting with bold statements. So if clashing is in, we’re on board.

Do Women Dress for Men or for Women? Vogue Weighs In

The Rue Boston office feels like it’s about 70% women, 69% of which are supermodel stylish. Leopard. Booties. Leather leggings. You’ll see it all – in spades. And, I have to say, it has zero reason to do with the men (dapper as they may be) who grace our cubes.

VOGUE: Do women dress for men? Or for women?

So what does it have to do with? Some would say our female coworkers, but it’s certainly up for debate.

This week, Vogue chatted with Justin O’Shea and his girlfriend, Veronika Heilbrunner – the buying and fashion directors for the luxury e-boutique mytheresa.com – regarding the age-old question: do women dress for men, or simply themselves?

Read the full debate on Vogue.

Lena Dunham May Be the Next Vogue Cover Girl

What Anna Wintour wants, Anna Wintour gets. Her latest desire? Lena Dunham on the cover of Vogue. Willing to break with tradition, the magazine’s editor in chief may feature the Girls creator “even though she doesn’t really conform to the body type that Vogue has featured for most of its history,” a source told Radar Online. And how is she setting this up, you ask? Over a fancy, top-secret dinner, of course.

If this collaboration does happen, one thing’s for sure: I’ll be first in line to get my hands on one of those glossies.

Kate Winslet’s Vogue Cover – Over-Airbrushed, or Art?

Kate Winslet’s November Vogue cover. I’m not the first to say it – this thing is airbrushed. Her eyes glitter. Her skin’s porcelain-doll smooth. It’s miles away from the Kate we know, the one America fell in love with years ago. Voluptuous and identifiable and real. And that’s exactly why I think the public has reacted so strongly against it.

But I ask – what if we look at Kate’s airbrushing in an entirely different light? What if we view her cover not as reality (à la the old Kate), but as art? Would it upset us less?

When photography was invented in the 1830s, art was revolutionized. There was no need for realism, for portraying every last tiny detail of a subject. The camera could do that. Instead, we painted impressions. Brushy strokes. Cubist figures. We interpreted.

In a sense, Kate’s Vogue cover is doing the same thing. It’s an intentional interpretation of a woman. We are not meant to believe this is Kate as she wakes up in the morning. Or even red-carpet Kate. It is a fantasy. A bit of escapism. And, upset as I may be that the old Kate is gone, isn’t that what art is all about?
