The fashion bible, now

US Vogue September 08′ Keira Knightley photographed by Mario Testino

Don’t blame Anna, US Vogue should fire the photoshopping artist soon. I was really anticipating Keira’s cover (one of my favourite Hollywood actresses besides Liv Tyler) because apparently, she looks good in almost everything, both red carpet and editorial wise. But I am sure that no one can ignore that hair. They could have given a pixie hair wig for her to wear if they were going for this ‘smart woman’ look but if that’s the case, Natalie Portman should have done the job (years ago). Oh, when is she going to get the cover? 

On another topic, WSJ reported that the number of ad pages in some of the top fash mags have fallen much compared to a year ago. Most noticeably, W dropped by a whooping 17.67% and Vogue by 7.10% while ELLE has an increase of 6.60% and BAZAAR, 3% . Maybe it’s time for Anna to consider about churning out a TV reality series, look what Project Runway has gotten ELLE to. Commercialism rules fashion, that’s not an old news anymore, right?

    Anna could help boost her magazine’s sales by changing her hairstyle!That would get media tongues wagging.LOL!
    The Vogue cover looks confused to me.Keira doesn’t really pull off the Balenciaga top.The image as a whole looks messy.

    There are rumors that Anna is on the way out. It has been speculated in a couple news publications, including NY Times.

    I bet there will be a new editor-in-chief by December 2008, after the December issue is sent to the printers.

    “There are rumors that Anna is on the way out. It has been speculated in a couple news publications, including NY Times.”

    I like Vogue UK with Karen Elson on the cover!

    Is there link available for these rumours? I tried the NY Times but I couldn’t find a thing about this ‘rumour’?

    this is hideous. she looks like a cancer patient who’s regrowing her hair after chemo.

    @ Such a subtle comment… a cancer patient looks hideous when their hair is regrowing? The ones I’ve known during this progress look amazingly happy and beautiful!

    Actually there are diseases which cause permanent hairloss.
    Think before you reply……

    That cover is hideous it looks like a average cheap catalog!

    @ nana
    karen is such an amazing model that she looks washed out in that cover. too much stuff there and the makeup makes her look dead

    @ la poubelle

    Karen is for sure an amazing model. I begin to get used to the ‘washed out’ look I suppose due to the overuse of photoshop.
    Further I think Karen is interesting as a person and she’s interviewed by Hadley Freeman. I’m curious to read that.

    This Vogue US looks almost like a door-to-door free catalog!
