Bad Bish – Miley Cyrus Transforms Her Style For V Magazine

Miley Cyrus’ transformation from teeny bopper Disney star to adult woman is complete as she poses for an editorial and sits down for an interview with V Magazine. I’ve been a fan of Miley for a number of years now. I don’t know if this new look and new attitude is contrived like every other celebrity in Hollywood’s look is contrived, but I like it. I think she has had one of the most seamless transitions from child star to adult we have seen in the last few years. The rest of the editorial and snippets of the interview are worth taking a look at. Check them out here on Fashionista’s website.

Rose Cordero Cover French Vogue

From Clutch Magazine:

Vogue Paris’ March cover is a milestone issue featuring it’s second Black model since Liya Kebede. Rose Cordero is a stunning site in Vuitton with some of the best styling we’ve seen in recent fashion pages. It’s a Spanish military influence with the use of knitwear, corsetry while the function of the belt takes on a different form as a neck-piece. Congrats to Cordero, clearly a rising star.

 

 

 

 

Teen Vogue Featuring Chanel Iman and Jourdan Dunn

*Blogger stop sending out posts that haven’t been posted yet! URGH!*

Anyway I went to the store and picked up the new Teen Vogue with Chanel Iman and Jourdan Dunn on the cover. It promised to tell their readers how they can get a job in fashion, but all I saw were the same tips their readers can get from the high school career center, guidance counselor, or Google. HMM. Whatever! I think this issue would have been more beneficial to high schoolers if it elaborated more on where to look for an internship or get into a fashion school if you didn’t live anywhere near a fashion capitol. I could have used that advice when I was in grade school.

The most important part of the magazine, which was really small by the way :(, was the cover featuring two black models and their interview. This made me extremely happy because growing up I saw black faces on fashion magazines but it was rare, and nowadays it is worse. It makes me sad when I can’t see my own people or other minorities for that matter represented in fashion.

I think it is great to see these two young women on the cover of a magazine like this, and I wish more would follow suit. I hate how designers and casting directors look at my skin as a trend. Remember this from earlier in the week. I have always been and will always be black. I can’t change that, nor do I want to. I spend money on the same products,clothes, and accessories that are worn, advertised, and written about in those magazines. My skin color is not like an alligator bag or leopard print shoe. Black, brown, or cream colored skin is not the trend of the season.

Sorry I but I just had to vent. DISCUSS!

Highlights from the October Issue of Harper’s Bazaar

  • Diane von Furstenberg: Unwrapped

In this candid profile, the legendary designer gets personal about her loves, her career, and her style. Coquettish, strong and outspoken, Diane von Furstenberg opens up to Harper’s Bazaar about the secrets behind her prolific success and glamorous life.

Below are some quotes from the interview and the full story is available here:
On her career: “I have great satisfaction because the older I get, the younger my consumers are. And that’s kind of fun, and that’s kind of keeping me young and making me relevant.”

Her mission is… “To empower women. Why? Because I wanted to be an empowered woman, and I became an empowered woman. And now I want to empower every woman. And I do it through my clothes, I do it through my words, I do it through my money, I do it through everything.”
On her designs: “I like to think that my style and the clothes I design are effortlessly elegant and sexy. I think the word effortless is very important. I think that that creates an ease and a confidence, because I think there’s nothing more beautiful than a woman who’s confident.”

While the fall season has offered a copious number of fashion trends, it has also refreshingly heralded the return of easy elegance that can make a statement with simple styles and neutral hues. Harper’s Bazaar shares affordable finds and shows you how to transform inexpensive pieces into timeless treasures

Hunt for rich-looking fabrics, mixing textures with an emphasis on contrast – for example, a leather jacket teamed up with a silky dress or a Banana Republic satin trench, with an organic knit.
