I don’t even know what this horrifying mess of a cover is, but we’re moving on to what’s inside. Following the Calvin Klein minimalism, Lara is posed in Francisco’s efforts and even with him, quite simple and striking. I wonder where this leaves her with her contract. Maybe beauty isn’t an exclusive. Anyway, I could use a pop of color. Next…
Before I forget, don’t worry about my lacking in posts. I’m taking summer classes, trying to finish up here at Purdue and also am just a college student with a drinking probable drinking problem that is laying on my couch after devouring last night’s Taco Bell I never ate. So, to problem shmoblems and this exciting, undoubtedly bleak life, here we go!

Dear sweet Godney Spears, I hope this makes Lara’s exclusive with Calvin Klein kaput. I love Calvin Klein and Francisco’s minimalism, but I want variety and Tom Ford provided that to us all.

I live for Givenchy and the handsome Riccardo Tisci. Steven Klein sets this up for an obvious shoot displaying Fall’s Givenchy in a rather moody and typical Klein setting. While I’m not the one slung over Tisci’s shoulders, everyone does have a dream. With all of my recent posts, this is turning into my hidden desires displayed to the world, so quickly I’ll point out there is a landing strip in the editorial below. I’m sure someone will enjoy that precise hair maintenance.
Inside the magazine, Riccardo is interviewed by Donatella Versace. Get at it.

Tony Ward will be 48 in two days, and this is the exact reason why he won’t be backing down from the modeling scene anytime soon. Not only do I love strong features, particularly a prominent nose, but his body still…umph. He can throw me down and do anything and everything to me and I would be okay with it.
Take me, I’m yours, Mr. Ward.

The pinks in the makeup are so chic and perfect for summer, ladies. Lovely.

I saw this article earlier and immediately saw the absurdity in it all. Apparently, Forever 21 is threatening to sue fashion blogger Rachel Kane for her blog, WTForever21.com, on grounds of “trademark infringement, copyright infringement, unfair competition and dilution” to their brand. They want her to delete her site by June 10.
I have a problem with this for multiple reasons. Her blog is based on satirical thoughts and ramblings; humorous nonetheless. She finds random products and calls them out with hilarious, uncensored quips of judgement. If anything, she is still promoting the company, not to mention using her freedom of speech. She credits the website, in this case Forever 21′s website, when using photos and really just speaking out about what she thinks about their products.
Suck it up, Forever 21. Please visit her blog and support it! I know I would hate for someone to tell me not to be able to add commentary to what I do on here.
Shot by Terry Richardson, the Summer campaign for Mercedes-Benz stars model Jessica Stam. Even with all of the whorish makeup and bad hair, she looks rather fantastic.
I love how Desperately Seeking Susan this editorial is. Sasha embodies Madonna’s downtown chic layering in Dries Van Noten, Yves Saint Laurent, Burberry Prorsum and Marc Jacobs. She’s the girl you want to chill with. Simply put, this editorial is just cool and effortless. Put this girl on the cover already. It will be long overdue and well-deserved.

The cover is so promising, but I’ll spare you the editorial. To sum it up: over-styled, a stolen wig from 80′s pop star cartoon, Jem, and the same facial expression that I just want to smack to make her close her mouth. Picture painted.

I’m not even going to bother posting the magazine cover of Abbey eating bread, because I’m certain the crumbs on her lips are the only food she has consumed in a long, long time. I love Abbey, I really do, but Lagerfeld’s grasp is quite clutching and I’d like him to let go. She’s not herself anymore and he’s apparently drained her youth. Take away her hollow face and this cover is decent with the gorgeous Spring 2011 Christian Dior gown. Maybe if she went back brunette it would at least be a start.
Eat a sandwich, darling. A coffin and the living dead is not chic, despite what Twilight tells us.
