Top Story of the Month : We Have to Talk About Vogue We have to talk about Vogue people. Since Vogue (and Anna Devil Wintour) decided to embrace the idea of feature  accomplished women on it’s cover we all agree that putting celebrity was a good idea. Vogue is and always has been so Waspy oriented. It wasn’t a problem in the 80’s, it became one in the 90’s, now it’s clearly a major issue. On top of that Vogue, like every other printed magazine knows the internet fracture and the audience keep on decreasing. It’s a matter of fact. So what did Vogue decided to do ? Make buzz story.

It’s the period of the year we wrap-up on everything that’s a bit relevant. Well JANUARY – Lana Del Rey on the cover of the Russian edition of Interview – In a very arty cover LDR was referred as indie sensation  and Youtube revelation of the 2012 with her song Video Games. Since then she has build a very successful brand that some says is now way too commercial.

Lorde : The Anti-Miley

Who’s Lorde, you might ask yourself? Lorde, born Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O’Connor, is the new music sensation. You might not know who she is, or what she looks like, but you have probably heard her new song “Royals”.

Fashion Magazine April 2013 Issue : Cover Battle

(Click on the image to enhance) Here we are back for our monthly Fashion Magazine Covers April issue recap ! The big winner – Vogue US – I have to say that once again my first choice is with Vogue  US putting FLOTUS Obama on top. The Boring – – This month is pretty boring actually.

You’ve seen it yesterday. The best of Celebrities endorsement in commercials. Here’s my selection: Justin Timberlake x Bud Light Justin Timberlake was appointed as Bud Light Platinum’s Creative Director. “viewers were treated to a minute-long black-and-white ad for the new-ish brew, featuring Timberlake’s recently debuted comeback single, “Suit and Tie,” ( What is it about Black & White ? JT made a 6:20 minutes long perfomance yesterday at the Grammys all in Black & White that was very much acclaimed by Mrs Timberlake and the Bay/ Jay-z couple. He’s the celebrated Pips. If they want him, these are his conditions. He gets to be up there as long as he wants. Lainey Gossip Yes, the JT brand is now bigger and won’t stop growing even more.

However, he will have to work on his actor skills to be a complete powerful star. Click …

It’s perfectly in time for Beyonce that will be performing at the 2013 Super Bowl which airs on Feb. 3. ( look at the super mini T-shirt she’s wearing, is it a footballer shirt?). Jessica Chastain on the InStyle February Issue The new Chastain is learning how to play the game. Jessica Chastain is predicted for an Oscar nomination for Best Actress ( Zero Dark Thirty ) so she has to upgrade her image a bit and became a real Hollywood star, not just an actress.

Celebrity’s going up > Lana Del Rey is named GQ’s Woman of the Year and goes nude on GQ’s cover October issue.
