Is Anna Wintour ready to pass the pitchfork? Although Anna has not officially announced if and when she is stepping down, sources say Sex and the City star, Sarah Jessica Parker, could take over as Vogue editor.
Sarah Jessica became known for her style while staring as Carrie Bradshaw on the HBO hit series, Sex and the City. She is now a fashion icon and has become very close to Anna. The two share the same fashion sense, political ideas, have private lunches, and Anna even gave her advice about her upcoming shoe line.
Although Lena Dunham looks beautiful on the February cover of Vogue, editor-in-chief of the feminist blog Jezebel, Jessica Coen, offered up $10,000 for the untouched photos of Dunham. Coen’s reasoning behind wanting the photos is to show how Vogue digitally alters their photos. Coen explained herself on ablog post on Jezebel, “Her body is real. She is real. And for as lovely as the Vogue pictures are, they’re probably not terribly real.”
Coen didn’t want the photos, shot by Annie Leibovitz, just to show how Dunham really looks without being digitally altered because as Coen wrote, “Our desire to see these images pre-Photoshop is not about seeing what Dunham herself ‘really’ looks like; we can see that every Sunday night or with a cursory Google search. She’s everywhere. We already know what her body looks like.” Coen’s point in wanting to release the photos was to show that Dunham didn’t need all the photoshopping that she claims Vogue does to actresses who appear in the magazine.

There is a certain incandescent ambiance in the air as the beloved Fashion Week returns. Fashionistas wait impatiently for the first day to arrive so that they can pull their best ensembles out of hiding and hit the streets for some couture fun. Tinges of uncertainty bounce around every fashion magazine as contributors wonder what each designer will bring to the catwalk that year. However, with the recent elimination of the infamous event, "Fashion's Night Out," one has to wonder, will Fashion Week this year be as exciting? It was said back in February that the Vogue-funded occasion would no longer take place due to the revaluation of the event’s actual significance.
Luxurious hanbags in supple Saffiano leathers, embossed textures, and a myriad of rich pigments, prints, and hues were on display as specialty cocktails flowed and flashbulbs sparked. The collection - inspired by British heritage, tradition and style throughout the decades - included versatile satchels, clutches, and totes in traditional shapes and silhouettes.
If the names Willi Ninja, Dorian Corey, Pepper LaBeija, and Venus Xtravaganza sound the slightest bit familiar, then you've likely seen the 1991 documentary Paris Is Burning. Paris Is Burning explores the early underground ballroom community and its importance in the development of the LGBT community. The film's producer, Jennie Livingston, sheds light on the many competitive categories in the underground scene.
Fast forward to the year 2013. Every Tuesday night on West 39th street in Manhattan, you can still get an intimate view of the ballroom scene at club Escuelita. With the beats of DJ Mike Q spinning in the background under the vocals of Legendary Kassandra Ebony and others, Vogue Knights kicks into full effect just shy of midnight. Founder, Jack Mizarhi (given house name) started the event over a year ago. Dashaun Wesley (also known as the Legendary Dashaun Evisu Wesley) has been active in the scene since 1998. "I was interested in finding the Village Area," says the humbled 5'11 athletic built beau. "I saw people doing this dance on Christopher Street called voguing and I just watched and followed." Since then, Wesley has gained international recognition for his involvement in the ballroom community. He is currently one of the emcees and judges for the event.
The buzz has it that the haircut of the moment has arrived. In fact, this new do is already being deemed as the haircut of the year. Fashion bible, Vogue, stated in their January 2013 issue that this season's "sexy and refreshingly easy to wear" look is "The Chop," as beautifully exemplified by model, Karlie Kloss. The look, made possible by hairstylist, Garren Defazio, who Karlie adoringly refers to as "the Godfather of hair," rests just above the shoulders, with slight, feathery layers in the front and is brought together by long, airy bangs.
