First looks: Jennifer Lopez for Elle Magazine

By Andrea Petrou on January 25th, 2010

J-LO 1.jpgJennifer Lopez (or J-Lo) hasn’t been on our fashion radars for a while now, and we can only assume that was because she was taking time off to play mum and wife.

However it seems she’s making a comeback, and if these by Tom Munro it seems it’s with a vengeance.

The singer and actress, who we’ve always admired for her curves and, erm, bottom, looks striking in the photographs, which appear in this month’s issue of Elle.

We particularly love the military style hat, a la Cheryl Cole, and PVC jumpsuit J-LO is wearing.

Video: Behind-the-scenes with January Jones on Elle shoot, August ’09 issue

By Kimberley Foster on July 16th, 2009

We are used to seeing her donning her Sixties retro full-skirted frocks and Stepford Wife pearls for Mad Men, but the real-life January Jones is anything but. The actress is Elle‘s August ’09 cover girl as shot by Mariano Vivanco. Check out the video above for a behind-the-scenes look at her shoot – and keep your eyes peeled for an appearance by Donatella Versace! Click play on video above to watch.

UPDATE: Nina Garcia exits Elle … or does she?

By Andrea Kiliany Thatcher on April 15th, 2008

After yesterday’s announcement that Nina Garcia had left her position as fashion director at Elle, certain editors and industry people felt comfortable expressing their pleasure at the move. There was talk that Garcia hadn’t really been fashion director for years, it was just a title, and she was rarely in the office.

Better swallow those words, people. It looks like all the trouble with Project Runway moving from Bravo to Lifetime has caused problems for the magazine, which is signed on for one more year of participation with Bravo, and Garcia, a popular judge on the program.

By Andrea Kiliany Thatcher on March 4th, 2008

We know, we know, we’re just knocking back our February Elle while everyone else is reading the Amy Adams issue already.

But what made us feel better about being behind the times? We notices a lot of affordable footwear in the Elle shops section, and some of it is now on sale to boot!

These shoes look like they cost considerably more than they do, especially when included with editorial selections pricing in the thousands.

March issues of Vogue and W with Scarlette Johanssen, Natalie Portman

What’s there really to do on President’s Day but read magazines? A few of our favorite ladies graced the covers of the top glossies. Currently doing the publicity rounds for their new film The Other Boleyn Girl, Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman hit the cover for March’s issue of W. Shot by Steven Klein, both ladies are wearing Miu Miu. They both look okay, but honestly we prefer Miu Miu’s ads with Kirsten Dunst.

America’s Next Top Fashion Journalist

By Andrea Thatcher on January 31st, 2008


We don’t know if we can take any more Tyra Banks. Particularly after realizing how hard it is to find a normal, attractive picture of her for this post – one where she doesn’t have a hairstyle that looks like origami or is trying to look super fierce. But … we digress.

What we can take – and gladly – is a show that focuses on fashion journalism. Banks and Ken Mok, producers of “America’s Next Top Model”, are reportedly working on a new show for the CW where contestants compete for a job at Elle. (Next concern: can we take any more Elle?)

Elle directors Joe Zee and Anne Slowey would judge the would-be journalistas. Since this is the CW, we don’t expect much serious reporting. But we’ve enjoyed other faux-reality glimpses behind the glossies like The Hills and Miss Seventeen, so we would be happy to integrate this into our non-scripted television schedule

Yay or Nay? The Steve Madden Chap

By Elaine LaPersonerie on September 26th, 2007


A bunch of editors from Elle were talking to me at lunch yesterday about these new Steve Madden Chaps. Supposedly, the “Chap” is in such great demand that stores have been talking preorders! This shoe boasts a leather sole, 4.75″ heel, a hidden 1″ platform and a price tag of $149.95. I guess paired with leggings and a micro-mini, they could be cute. But are they cute enough to be ordering in advance? THAT, I really don’t know.
