Why Anna Wintour Put Kimye on the Cover of Vogue

Anne Look | Posted 08.04.2014 | UK Lifestyle

My initial reaction was sadness. Here was a publication I looked up to for so long appearing to follow popular culture instead of creating it. Vogue's traditional model of using a class structure to lure an aspiring working class to 'be better' has surely now been somewhat diminished.

Alexandra Shulman Says People Don't Want to See 'Real' in Vogue - And As A Reader I Heartily Agree

The skinny models don't make me feel bad about myself (and, to be clear, that's not because I'm in any way model-esque. Picture the average woman. That's me). Nor do the "real" models make me feel good. When it comes to magazines like Vogue, I want to see something beautiful - something magical. I value the escapism these publications offer...

Lena Dunham and Vogue

What big feminist point was Jezebel hoping to prove by exposing what we already know, that Vogue alters photographs?

Do Judge a Vogue by its Cover

To your everyday woman, perhaps not accustomed to a life of airbrushed perfection, it can be just a fairly dispiriting, potentially bruising, high gloss, fashion mag. But, I'm convinced that it's supposed to represent more than that. Step forward Lena Dunham.

What Point Is Jezebel.com Trying to Make By Offering $10K to See Lena Dunham's Un-Retouched Photos?

Poorna Bell | Posted 19.03.2014 | UK Lifestyle

I have an uneasy feeling - like the time I decided to back the wrong friend over who stole the other's Sherbet Straws in school - but I vehemently disagree with Jezebel's offer to pay Vogue $10,000 to see Lena Dunham's unretouched photos from its cover shoot.

Oh Lena, I Wish You'd Have Said No to Vogue

Victoria Sadler | Posted 18.03.2014 | UK Entertainment

When it comes to female self-esteem and body image, Vogue is unequivocally part of the problem and not part of the solution. It is the gold standard in an industry that wilfully damages self-esteem to cultivate a dependent market. By being their cover girl, Lena is not just lending them her credibility but also a tacit approval of their methods and behaviour.

I'm an Intern, Not an Idiot

Tish Weinstock | Posted 27.02.2014 | UK Universities & Education
Tish Weinstock

Without internships, you can kiss goodbye to gaining critical experience; wave farewell to school credit; bid adieu to making friends, those future stars of fashion; and pretty much forget about getting your name in print. Everybody starts out as an intern; it's a rite of passage. And, the longer you can stick it out as one, the greater the chance of ultimately getting a job..

Should We Admire Vogue's Attempt to Educate Schoolgirls?

Vogue has announced it will be sending educational videos to 1,000 schools across the UK, in an attempt to show young, influential schoolgirls models don't come pre-polished. It's an interesting - and admittedly admirable - concept. Let's remember Alexandra Shulman et al don't actually have to dispel the shimmer of perfection which surrounds their models.

Skinny and Boring

This buck-passing attitude, the 'oh but the top agencies send us these skeletal models' and the 'oh but the designers only make the clothes in tiny sample sizes' circular evasion has to stop. Someone needs to take responsibility and step up to the table on this one.

Suicide Isn't a Joke or Art - Vice Magazine Needs to Make a Better Apology

Poorna Bell | Posted 18.08.2013 | UK Lifestyle

Vice magazine isn't the first to put out a tasteless shoot in the name of fashion and 'art', but considering suicide rates are steadily rising, it could start with a decent apology.
