Coco Rocha Has A Fairy Tale Wedding

When I heard that Coco Rocha was marrying James Conran in a Zac Posen dress in Europe, I couldn’t wait to see the photos. I too dream of an European fantasy wedding. My friends think I’m crazy. Whatever…it will happen. Like I was saying. I couldn’t wait to see the photos, but something else has come out that is way better. Coco and her beau shot video footage of their nuptials. There are two versions, a long and short version, and they feature music from Avatar, so you know they are pretty epic. Enjoy!

This Is How I Like To See My Vogue

This is how I like to see my Vogue magazine. It needs to be chock full of fashion magic. I am tired of the same old, same old. Looks like they delivered. Photos from Fashion Gone Rogue.

Set to be a jam-packed issue, here is our first look at Vogue US September with an editorial shot by the one and only Steven Meisel. Gathering up a group of eclectic all-star models, the six page spread hones in on the nomadic aspects of the fall collections. Styled by Edward Enninful in ornate patterns, luxurious fur and loud accessories, models Liu Wen, Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls, Magdalena Frackowiak, Kasia Struss and Jourdan Dunn come together for We Are the World.

Noemie’s Back!

 

 


We’re so happy to learn French model Noemie Lenoir is back to work after what appeared to be a suicide attempt last month. 

Not only will you see the gorgeous 30-year-old model in a romantic spread in the July issue of Elle (see it here), but Lenoir’s agent also told StyleList that she recently shot a Willy Van Der Perr-photographed, Katie Grand-styled spread for Russian Vogue’s September issue alongside curvy beauties Ana Beatriz Barros, Alessandra Ambrosio, and ’90s model Claudia Mason. (See a few behind-the-scenes images on Elite’s blog).

Fans will also see Lenoir in a future issue of i-D in a spread about the 50 hottest designers of the moment, which was also shot in London recently.

Welcome back, Noemie!

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.

 

 

 

 

The Final V Mag Preview

I found out via twitter and Musings of a Fatshionista that the final V Magazine preview was out. Please check out Christina’s blog for the rest of the pictures from The Kaiser’s shoot, and check out her commentary on Karl Lagerfeld. I totally agree with her. It is extremely crazy for him to criticize fat people when “A” he was once fat and “B” he just shot this plus size editorial. Whatever!

You know they had to throw in the straight size model to finish the size issue and make it fair. I wanted to show you all of these pictures, but Iris Strubegger is completely naked in all of them except one, and i know some of my readers are reading this at work. I am trying to figure out a way to show NSFW fashion photos without getting people fired.

Also the cover features Gabby Sidibe, from Precious, and Dakota Fanning,who looks disheveled and blank stare worthy, as a dual cover issue.

So It’s True

Tyra Banks announced on Twitter yesterday that her talk show is ending after the 5th season, which I think is weird since it just moved to the CW network. I have a love/hate relationship with Tyra. I am happy for all of the things that she has achieved, but I feel like she can seem somewhat phoney and fake at times.

According to People Magazine:

“This will be the last season of The Tyra Show,” Banks tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I’ve been loving having fun, coming into your living rooms, bedrooms, hair salons for the past 5 years.”

Wrapping at the end of its fifth season in the spring of 2010, it will be lights out for the show that brought viewers memorable weave-exposing, cellulite-revealing and tear-jerking moments.

Banks will focus on the launch of Bankable Studios, a N.Y.-based film production company currently reviewing possible projects. Sticking to her mission, Banks aims to bring “positive images of women to the big screen,” says an industry insider.

Twitter Has Now Been Deemed Popular Culture


DUH!!!! Twitter is everywhere. It has popped up in some idiotic “song” called LOL smiley face. I hate that song. Spare yourselves now and try not to look it up. Now twitter has infiltrated fashion. There a ton of fashion people on twitter, so it makes a little sense to put a piece of Twitter into a fashion spread right!?!?!? Well Vogue Italia and Steven Meisel did just that for the December 2009 issue. The editorial is genius! Who would have thought to use the Twitpic as an editorial? I love it! All photos are from Fashionologie.

OH DON’T FORGET TO FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER @THEFATANDSKINNY! I USE THAT AS MY MINIBLOG, SO I TALK A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT MY LIFE THERE! 🙂

OMG This Is Horrible News



This is so sad! I can’t even believe this. She was only 20 years old.

From NY Mag’s The Cut:


Model Daul Kim was found dead in Paris this morning, her agents at Next confirm. “She was a top model and a great friend to all of us at Next. Please respect her family’s privacy at this time of sadness. We will all miss her very much,” they said in a statement. The cause of death remains unknown at this time but a source tells the Cut the 20-year-old committed suicide. She will be missed.




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.
