Kate Upton, The Next Victoria’s Secret Angel?

We’re used to seeing our Angels more on the skinny side but Victoria’s Secret might just have a change of size policy. Perhaps after seeing that she was dubbed The Hottest Supermodel on Earth by Vogue, they needed to revise their attitude and get Kate Upton back after they apparently declared her ‘too obvious’ for their catwalk.

She doesn’t seem too obvious for their catalog, one would believe. Now if she’ll jump from those pages straight into a pair of wings, I doubt it will happen for the next catwalk, but if anything, I’m happy that Kate is bringing a normal-sized silhouette into the pages of lingerie giant. I too believe, like I said it before, that Kate’s ‘in-your-face’ appeal is pretty disturbing for haute fashion purposes. However, should they find her successful with the customers, I think Victoria’s Secret should definitely stick with Miss Upton for further representations. Don’t you agree?

Mango Brings The Sartorialist And Andres Velencoso Together

It’s been a while since we last talked about Mr Scott Schumann… I’m guessing his Sartorialist goes on as I’ve been keeping a respectful distance ever since Mr Schumann tried to lecture us, mere mortals and fashion amateurs about what fashion and writing about fashion should really be.

I like to keep my spirit free and lecture-free. Especially the smug kind. But it didn’t seem to hurt Mr Schumann’s business, being so smug. Here he is, quietly minding his own lenses for Mango’s next marketing initiative for men (the video after the jump, which you’re not meant to view in its entirely as it runs for almost an hour, will show you that nothing has changed with Mr Schumann. The same ol’ Sartoria-smug-list).

H.E. by Mango Fall 2013 ad campaign is set to be represented for a second consecutive season by Andres Velencoso. Affordable street fast fashion advertising delivered by the Sartorialist himself. A smart initiative from the Spanish fashion giant. Waiting for Zara’s next move as we all know it’s Mango’s immediate competitor.

Gatsby’s Tobey Maguire In Zoo Magazine By Brian Adams

We went out and saw The Great Gatsby. I told you we would. But even now, I still prefer Fast and Furious fun over the entire Gatsby industry. I’m like that. A lighthearted girl in her lighthearted bubble. And I love having fun more than I love heavy issues on my daily agenda.

As you well know, there used to be a time when movie studios and hot brands alike were scared of social media and having their original material scattered all over the internet place. Things have changed now (thankfully) and every social channel’s contribution at spreading out the word about this or that product (movies, celebrities, whatever needs advertised) is not only encouraged, but also a blessing. Here I am, like our dear friend Appollonia often says, making my modest contribution to the economy, writing about my perception of The Great Gatsby.

More specifically about Tobey Maguire who was the very narrator of Gatsby’s story and who was just photographed by Bryan Adams for the Summer issue of Zoo Magazine.

Kate Moss New Hairdo For Vogue Kerastase Promotion

Remember when I said something about Kate Moss being involved in some advertorial contract with L’Oreal Kerastase? Well it hasn’t been that long and we already see the result of that advertising as it has been published by Vogue Paris in their last issue’s pages!

Hair talk is one of my favorite topics and I wouldn’t miss combining that with a dose of Kate Moss! So here she is, reigning queen over all fashion land! The couture hair she has on must’ve been seriously enhanced with extensions here and there as La Moss is famous for her straight, un-puffed hairdo. But she does make quite the hair impression in that picture, even beyond the mandatory Photoshop usage!

Fashionable Home: Smeg Denim Refrigerator

Trying to find the best solution to match our functional but modern kitchen, I had to compromise between the classic shapes and colors and small tweaks and customization I could do myself on a budget so I had to settle for the best simple option I could find. An all-white kitchen. Which works just great for the moment, like a white canvas.

But look at this refrigerator here! How could one fashionable simple soul like mine can resist it? I fell for it the instant I laid eyes on! Smeg FAB28 Jeans Refrigerator comes in a limited edition of 500. You know what they say, strong flavors come in small lots. Or somewhat like it.

Birkenstock Sandals Still Fashionable This Summer!

If there’s one thing Emmanuelle Alt loves to put in her Vogue Paris, especially during the summer issues, is a looooot of skin! Bare skin. Highly tanned and muscled up. This month’s pictorials have plenty of that! Anja Rubik was just a modest example, not to mention the very cover!

But if you look closely, there’s another must in Vogue Paris’ pages! Birkenstock sandals! Much like white court shoes, I was really against socks in sandals. They just look like a certified fashion fail. And still, when it makes its way up in Vogue’s pictorials, you kinda start thinking about pairing your Arizona Birkenstocks with thick wool socks. Don’t you?

Wolverine’s First Cover. With Claws And Frown

Talking about beards. And Men. And Movies! Waiting for Wolverine to drop in theaters worldwide in about a month or so (end of July, to be more specific), Entertainment Weekly is way ahead of us as they’re making Hugh Jackman take out his Wolverine claws on their June cover.

This is so becoming for the 44yo actor who makes such a credible Logan/Wolverine. Not that he didn’t do an outstanding Valjean as well, but Miserables wasn’t my cup of tea. As I said the other day, I’d rather have brainless fun at the cinemas instead of singing through my tears in desperate misery. Theatrically speaking, biensur. So this sounds like a super-movies-year with The Man of Steel dropping mid-June and Thor 2 this fall, not to mention the great Iron Man 3 a couple of weeks ago.

Given that the summer is still young, I’m still hoping for better super-covers than this. But EW had the merit of being the first. Right?

How To Radically Change Your Look: Ewan McGregor

I may have mentioned it a couple of times, but I won’t get tired of saying it over and over again: I have a serious weakness for beards. And more specifically for my Adored Husband’s beard. It just… it’s just!

Naturally, I won’t miss any opportunity to praise the free use of beards and this new look sported by Ewan McGregor is exactly the water I needed to run my beard mill! I’m guessing he’s doing it for a new role, as I don’t think he would’ve freely undergo such a dramatic transformation out of his free willed aesthetic spirit. Ewan McGregor is now a full fledged dark haired individual. And while he’s looking like Clive Oven’s long lost brother, I can’t help but notice how dramatically changed he is just because he added that facial hair do!
