March Bazaar: High School Musical Francis Cobain

Glossed Over takes a look at the March Bazaar. There’s a self-serving service piece that explains why luxury goods cost so much:

…the article gets progressively more grating, predictably returning to the justification of the positively vulgar price tags of luxury goods. What else can be expected from people whose livelihoods are dependent on the public buying costly stuff they don’t need?


Bazaar
also has the most embarrassing celebrity fashion spread in months–Francis Bean Cobain, all puppy fat and potty mouth, posing uncomfortably as characters from her favorite musicals. She’s fifteen, and you know as well as we do, it’s no good asking where her mother, Courtney Love, is or what she was thinking. The shots are hardly photographer Jeff Reidel’s best work, and she looks both pretty and mortified. Proud mama’s remarks:

She’s a gay man trapped in a woman’s body, like me.

Vogue: Fat September

Glossed Over live blogs the September Vogue, and lives to tell.

Gawker notes that the same issue has gained a little weight, while Jossip points out that last year’s issue was bigger.

Sienna Miller’s on the cover, despite all the Amy Winehouse gossip.

And Cathy Horyn actually found reading matter hidden in the dead-tree ad forest. Her readers tear the issue to shreds.

Sarah Jessica Parker Repeats Herself

Sarah Jessica Parker, or her publicist, is so environmentally aware, she even recycles anecdotes. In the August Elle:

Coty Prestige exec Catherine Walsh, who works with SJP on her ever-expanding collection of perfumes, tells this story about the star to Elle’s Maggie Bullock:

“I used to send her weekly ratings [for Lovely],” says Catherine Walsh…”When they dropped, she would say, ‘Oh my gosh! Do I need to go to Dadeland Mall and make a personal appearance?’”

In the October 2006 Marie Claire:

“When we launched,” says Walsh, “we started to send her sales reports weekly, by store. She would read them, and if we weren’t in the top three names, she’d e-mail me and ask, ‘Is there something I need to do? Do I need to go there?’ I mean, who does that? Even I don’t do that! Carlos and I just looked at each other and said, “She’s really going to go to Macy’s in Dadeland, FL, because we’re number nine there?” She just puts you to shame.”

Glossed Over puts us to shame because they actually read this junk.

August W Salutes Furverts

Glossed Over alerts us to a unintentionally hilarious fashion spread in the August W: dead women in furs.

Was this a sop to PETA? If so, why isn’t the model caught in a trap or chewing her limbs off?

Or is it a tribute to plushophila?
