Deep Glamour Launches… So That’s Where Kate Coe Went!

23211418.jpgKate Coe sends us this (totally impersonal) form e-mail:

As of today , Virgina Postrel (The Atlantic, author of The Substance of Style) and I can be found blogging at Deep We’ll be writing about glamour, allure and all the seductive images that bombard us in the media and culture and what they really mean. We’ll have exclusive interviews with mysterious and important figures like The Manolo, Simopn Doonan and others. Please feel free to post about our launch and link to us. We can promise provocative, witty posts with Virginia’s astute analysis and my tart commentary on everything from Barack Obama to Bravo’s Top Design, as well as brilliant writing from guest editors not found all over the internet.

As Postrel explains in DG’s intro, the blog is both an offshoot of the research she’s doing for a new book and an excuse to work with Kate. Having worked with Kate before we can understand the draw.

The Atlantic: July/August Issue


The Atlantic crosses the Pacific, for a China-themed issue.

National correspondent James Fallows, who moved to Shanghai in 2006, has a cover story on China’s riseas a manufacturing is good. Fallows writes:

Here is an uncomfortable truth I’m waiting for some Chinese official to point out: The woman from the hinterland working in Shenzhen is arguably better off economically than an American in Chicago living on minimum wage. She can save most of what she makes and feel she is on the way up; the American can’t and doesn’t.

How Fallows knows what a minimum-wage earning woman in Chicago feels isn’t stated–maybe she’s a PA for Oprah, living at home, and she’s thrilled.

The magazine must have gone to press before the food additives scandal surfaced.

Also in this issue:

Caitlin Flanagan on on-line predators,while confessing to a little weird stalking thing of her own.

Virginia Postrel on Hollywood’s master glamour photographer, George Hurrell.

Corby Kummer on fresh sardines, now available up and down the California coast.
