Watch Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, or CCDD as I like to call her, style Joan Smalls for V Magazine. Joan Smalls is styled up by the infamous French stylist to look like Tina Turner for V Magazine’s September issue. CCDD is one of my favorite stylists and herx editorials and styling gigs are practically famous. Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele is the one who styled Anna Wintor’s first Vogue cover after all. You know the one with the jeans and couture on it… Anyway. Get into the goodness of this video, and have a wonderful weekend!
Lady Gaga stars on four V Magazine covers this week with four corresponding editorials that represent her as the David Bowie fan, her in her current state, her in the past, and her as Donatella Versace. The pop star also released her new single “Applause” early, or maybe she leaked it. Anyway. Gaga will be preforming at the MTV VMA’s at the end of August, so prepare for the media onslaught that is about to happen. Photo from ONTD.
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.

V Magazine Launches Its First Foreign Edition With Adriana Lima On The Cover Of V Spain
Nitrolicious has the Forever 21/Faith 21 lookbook. I am excited that they combined the two lines together instead of separating them and I also like the direction that they are pushing the Faith 21 line. They added a new size level. Faith 21 now goes up to a 3X. Hopefully they will go up so more. I would like for them to go to at least a 5X if they really want to call it a plus size line.
I also like the look of this collection. The mixture of stripes and floral prints are very trend on for spring and easy for mall shoppers to digest without getting to high fashion. The colors are bright just like we saw on some of the spring 2010 runways and they are introducing their version of the striped Breton sailor shirt. It is all very classic and extremely cute!
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.

I told you guys about the V magazine issue with plus size models in this post. Well…. we have a little sneak peak here.
They show two models of different builds but similiar looks. In this case you have Jacquelyn Jablonski: 5 ft, 9 in; 32/24/34 and Crystal Renn: 5 ft, 9 in; 36/31/41. They put them in the same clothes with the same styling and hair. Then they told them to do similar poses for photographer Terry Richardson. At first I wasn’t to keen on the idea of doing a skinny vs. not so skinny shoot, but I must say Crystal Renn fills the clothes out nicely. I really would like to see more of that on the runway. Not to say that skinny models should be banned all together now. I realize that people come in all shapes and sizes, therefore there should be a mix of sizes in stores and on the runway.

Well isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black? Remember when he said this and that. Self-hate is horrible, especially when you are in denial. What say you good readers?
