Ah the delights of RPatz – captured by Bruce Weber for Vanity Fair. I will not question it I will just go with the eye candy. What I do find fascinating however is whether Patzy is the turning point for magazine cover theories. There was a time when magazine common sense dictated that you would never sell copies if you had a fellow draped all over the front. But perhaps the presence of the Vampire on the December cover of the Vanity Fair, looking suitably disheveled in a messy bed, will buck this assumption.
I had to laugh at my latent juvenile instinct which is flourishing by the light of the new moon. ( If I don’t laugh I will cry at the unexpected demise of my maturity)
Inexplicably I found myself taking the terribly serious and life altering Vanity Fair Twilight Watch Poll Who is your favorite New Moon couple. No prizes for guessing correctly..
I am concerned – very concerned, but still cannot wait to watch the sequel.
The rise and rise of the 80′s supermodel – who knew that these lasses would prevail in the noughties?
Especially this season – they are all over the place what with a Vanity fair special, Claudia Schiffer for D&G, Linda as the face of Prada etc.
So here is Cindy Crawford looking pretty darn spectacular in the latest issue of French Vogue …. all I can say is that these girls give us all hope.. Read More…
Its a meeting of hair frankly – but work with me – can it spell the shocking return of the bouffant 70′s boucle and the strange compulsion for home curling kits?
Here is Kate in her December Vanity Fair shoot – the Deneuve thing is entirely intentional and by the way she has countered the airbrushing speculation with a statement to people.com – “Kate is furious at suggestions that her body has been airbrushed, she is in terrific shape and what you see is how she looks or she would never have agreed to pose for those shots.” You tell them sister… Read More…
Until Friday the store fronts of Madison Avenue New York City will be given over to the joys of portraiture as immortalised in Vanity Fair for the last 95 years. Here’s my personal favourite the dashing Mr Carey Grant gracing the windows of Gucci. Fun idea I think – laying bare the way celebrity and product marketing have worked hand in hand for at least one hundred years….

Designer Michael Roberts has just published a Catty Catalogue of Stylish Casualties. ‘Fashion Victims’ ( Harper Collins) is yet another vitoriolic diatribe of the kind that we so love to read… Vanity Fair hosted a party in London at Hamiltons Gallery last night – Here’s Naomi Campbell with Michael Roberts – sucking up I am sure lest she appears in his sequel.
Why not order a copy?
Project Runway’s Nina Garcia weighed in yesterday to People magazine on the relative merits of the style choices of the first ladies in waiting.
“[McCain] is Oscar de la Renta. [She's] all about bold colors and she’s all about diamonds and pearls and blondeness.”
On the other ticket, “[Obama] is Miss Jackie O. — ’50s, early ’60s,” .
I’ll just come out and say it – I would much prefer to see Michelle Obama’s kit anyday. I found the fact that Cindy McCain had no qualms in wearing a $300 000 dollar outfit ( pictured) to the Republican convention – (that is R2.4 million in our sad little currency) is a little garish to say the least.

I just received my September Vanity Fair issue in the post. Its probably one of the nicest gifts I have ever been given. The subscription to my monthly dose of gossip presented in witty, well written packaging is a delight. That is when it arrives given the vagaries of the SA postal service. Read More…
