How Many Times Does This Vogue Piece Make You Want to Vomit?

It’s still early, but we think Vogue has published the most intolerable article of 2013. “American Pastoral: Miranda Brooks and Bastien Halard’s Brooklyn Home” is horrible in every way possible; thrusting privileged quaintness at readers like a hammer bludgeoning a skull. Let’s go ahead and count up all the times we wanted to vomit while reading the piece, shall we?

“Did you feed the bunnies?” Miranda Brooks asks her husband, Bastien Halard, as she ladles cauliflower soup into an antique ironstone china bowl.

This is the first goddamn sentence. If you can’t stomach this, just close this tab and forget you ever heard of this article. Go on, save yourself. It’s better this way. Still here? Grab some Pepto, because this is about to get downright nasty.

Beyoncé to Grace Cover of Vogue

According to the New York Daily News, Beyoncé is going to grace the cover of the March issue of Vogue. Annie Leibovitz allegedly finished shooting the pop sensation last week.

Hopefully this new Beyoncefied (a technical term for “making something great”) cover is better than the last time she appeared on the front of Vogue.

Five Things We Learned About Grace Coddington from Her NY Times Profile

Grace Coddington, the creative director at Vogue, got the New York Times profile treatment this weekend. In case you missed it, here are five interesting things we learned about Coddington from perusing the piece.

  1. Coddington is about to release a memoir titled Grace, which she was paid $1.2 million to write.
  2. She shares two cats — Bart and Pumpkin — with her boyfriend. Bart is named after Bart Simpson. We’re just guessing about that.
  3. When Coddington was young, she attended a convent school where the nuns roller-skated.
  4. She once asked Madonna to wear a hat that looked like a “cream cake.” Madonna, ever the fashionista, wasn’t happy about it.
  5. Coddington’s advice to young designers? It helps to have “a few things going wrong in their life.”

Kate Upton Lands Vogue Cover

Kate Upton has landed her first Vogue cover. The model appears on the November cover of Vogue Italia, wearing something that looks extremely uncomfortable. But hey, that’s fashion! We think.

Upton has now appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated, GQ, CR Fashion Book and Cosmopolitan.

Vogue Issues Fantastic Correction

The October issue of Vogue features a correction that is just too good not to mention. In an interview with Chelsea Clinton in Vogue’s September issue, Jonathan Van Meter mentioned Dan Baer, one of Clinton’s friends. Turns out Van Meter didn’t check up on what, exactly, Baer does for a living.

Here’s the correction that was issued, via The Huffington Post:

In the September profile of Chelsea Clinton, “Waiting in The Wings,” by Jonathan Van Meter, Dan Baer was mistakingly identified as an interior designer. He is deputy assistant secretary for the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor at the State Department.

Same thing, right?

Cover Battle: Vogue or Time

Welcome back to FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. Today we have Vogue versus Time. Vogue has Lady Gaga tightly wrapped in tin foil and sporting a hair style that makes us crave cotton candy. This is artsy! We know it is, so don’t try and tell us otherwise.

Vogue Bests Competition with Big September Issue

It’s tough to beat Vogue. That’s the case quite often when it comes to the fashion magazine world, and once again this year, Vogue has proven itself a worthy competitor. We reported on the September issue ad page numbers for most fashion titles yesterday, but now we have Vogue’s, and it’s a doozy.

WWD reports that Vogue’s September issue registers a whopping 658 ad pages, the most it has had since 2008. The next closest fashion mag was Elle, with 400 pages InStyle, with 440 pages.

Like we said, it’s not easy beating Vogue. But maybe we just should’ve pointed out that Anna Wintour has no time for you fools.

Publishers Love China

For publishers of fashion magazines, the odd spending habits of readers in China is a great thing. The New York Times reports that advertisers in China are busily pouring funds into titles like Vogue and Elle, forcing the former to add extra issues and the latter to split its monthly issues in two because they’re too thick.

The ad dollars are rolling in thanks to some curious (to us) spending habits of readers. Vogue runs about $3.15 in China, a hefty amount considering the average individual earns just $733 a month in Beijing. Duncan Edwards, president and chief executive of Hearst Magazines International, added that it was common for Chinese woman earning only $15,000 per year to spend $2,000 on a purse.
