Vanity Fair: 100th Anniversary Issue

So here we are.

Here we are.

At least Vanity Fair didn’t use stock photography for this cover, right? Vogue just had to throw around the term ‘supermodel’ for Kate Upton, didn’t they? She hardly models. Where are the full-bodied models with skill and craft? Kate is constantly type-casted as the buxom blonde, it’s easier for the photographer that way, so unfortunately for her career, that’s how she’ll be shot the majority of the time. That’s not even the issue. Girl can’t model. She’s pretty, but her eyes seem dead in this shot, but perhaps that was the point.

Lindsay Lohan: Vanity Fair October

God bless America. I can buy a gun and illegal fireworks just as easy as it was for Lilo’ to break free of prison and rehab. What a lovely establishment we have running here. Now incoming: Lindsay’s media onslaught. And here you thought it was already annoying. I’ll give Vanity Fair credit for making our lady of crazy appear stunning, so there’s that.

Lindsay Lohan on Her Trial, Her Career, and the Reasons She Lost Control

“If I were the alcoholic everyone says I am, then putting a [SCRAM] bracelet on would have ended me up in detox, in the emergency room, because I would have had to come down from all the things that people say I’m taking and my father says I’m taking—so that says something, because I was fine,” Lindsay Lohan tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Nancy Jo Sales. “I think everyone has their own addictions and hopefully learns how to get past them,” she says, in an interview conducted one week before her jail time began. “I think my biggest focus for myself is learning how to continue to get through the trauma that my father has caused in my life.”

Lohan was visibly upset when she spoke with Sales about Ali’s presence in the courtroom, calling it “heartbreaking” to see her sister cry. However, Lohan feels conflicted about her father’s unexpected appearance at the hearing, telling Sales, “The worst part of it is you turn around and you see your dad crying and normally you’d be, like, happy that your father’s there. But then he has to go and do an interview right after.”

Sales reports that Lohan thinks her career is far from over. “I don’t care what anyone says. I know that I’m a damn good actress. … And I know that in my past I was young and irresponsible—but that’s what growing up is. You learn from your mistakes,” she tells Sales.

Lohan adamantly denies rumors of drug abuse, telling Sales: “I’ve never abused prescription drugs. I never have—never in my life. I have no desire to. That’s not who I am. I’ve admitted to the things that I’ve done—to, you know, dabbling in certain things and trying things ’cause I was young and curious and thought it was like, O.K., ’cause other people were doing it and other people put it in front of me. And I see what happened in my life because of it.”

Lohan blames her troubles, in part, on hanging out with the wrong crowd, Sales reports. “So many people around me would say they cared for the wrong reasons. A lot of people were pulling from me, taking from me and not giving. I had a lot of people that were there for me for, you know, the party.” And when she first moved to L.A., Lohan says, “it was very go-go-go and I had a lot of responsibility; and I think just the second I didn’t have [structure] anymore—I was 18, 19—with a ton of money and no one really here to tell me that I couldn’t do certain things … And I see where that’s gotten me now, and I don’t like it.” She says tabloids were her main source of news, and calls that “really scary and sad… I would look up to those girls… the Britneys and whatever. And I would be like, I want to be like that.”

Sales interviews several paparazzi, and reports that Lohan often cooperates with them for a fee, though Lohan denies this. “If I called her up right now and said I’ll give you $10,000, she’d come right down,” a photographer tells Sales. “Once you’re famous, there’s always a way to make money,” another photographer says. “She might not be doing what she’d like to be doing, but she’ll always be Lindsay Lohan.”

The October issue of Vanity Fair will be available on newsstands in New York and L.A. on Thursday, September 2, and nationally and on the iPad on Tuesday, September 7.

Here’s your first look, people. I’m sure the rest of the images will be flooding in shortly.

Vanity Fair’s September Issue: Lady Gaga

And the September issues flow in. Lady Gaga is grey as a granny in Fred Leighton jewels. Although not a fashion magazine through and through, I suppose “The Style Issue” counts, right?

1. Kristen McMenamy, is that you?

2. Throwing up your Miley, I see.

3. Loving the nail polish.

4. No really, Kristen M, is that you?

5. I see we’re air brushing tattoos, Vanity Fair.

6. Kind of ethereal.

7. “Who is she? Why is she? Should you worry?” Rolling my eyes. Who is their target audience, the geriatric community?

Elizabeth Taylor on Vanity Fair

The most beautiful woman ever to live on Earth will be featured on the cover of the next Vanity Fair. While the photo is old, the sheer beauty and could never be lost. Her eyes, her acting, and of course the love affairs have made her the Hollywood icon that she is today. The love affair that is of topic in the issue is between her and Richard Burton. Love letters are released and they discussed that it was possible that the couple would get back together once more before his death. Diamonds or no diamonds, the woman will always be absolutely divine.

Vanity Fair Espana…and Steamy NSFW-ish

Wow…drool, this is really sexy. There’s nothing better than the dark hair and dark, mysterious gaze. Don’t mind me, but I’m totally and completely turned on about now. I actually didn’t recognize Andres Velencoso Segura’s name at first until I looked up his previous work and realized I have seen him plenty of times. I wish we could get away with this in America without a plastic cover around the magazine and something printed on it to cover in “indecent” exposure. Spanish men are steamy and this definitely proves it to me.
