Putin’s Gymnast Alina Kabaeva Covers Vogue Russia January 2011

Alina Kabaeva - rhythmic gymnast turned Vladimir Putin's alleged mistress turned member of the Russian parliament - graces the cover of Vogue Russia January 2011 issue.

Kabaeva, 27 years old, is one of the most successful rhythmic gymnasts in world, holding two Olympic medals and over 30 other various championship medals, is dubbed "Golden Girl" by the Russian Vogue. She has since retired and after unproven allegations that she and Putin were in love and were getting married, Kabaeva has not surprisingly emerged in the world of politics as a member of the Russian parliament. Connections to Putin were never mentioned again.

You might recognize the golden dress on the cover as Balmain Fall 2010. It has already graced about a dozen ...

W Magazine Scored Rooney Mara To Appear On February 2011 Cover

W Magazine Scored Rooney Mara To Appear On February 2011 Cover

Rooney Mara who is currently shooting The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo as Lisbeth Salander - a cyberpunk hacker - will appear on W Magazine's February 2011 cover.

The cover was originally supposed to go to Vanity Fair, but they didn't take kindly to the film producer's request to use their own photographer - Jean-Baptiste Mondino - and pass on Annie Leibovitz. So instead, they went with W Magazine who's editor in chief - Stefano Tonchi - worked with Mondino before.

Having a secret past as teenage cyberpunk enthusiast - I'm excited about this cover!

Now there's a powerful trio. Salma Hayek, Karl Lagerfeld, Alexander McQueen.

Salma Hayek was photographed by Karl Lagerfeld for the V Magazine Spain winter issue cover wearing an Alexander McQueen Resort 2011 dress. Resort 2011 was the first collection designed by McQueen's successor Sarah Burton. Incidentally, the dress was first worn by Anna Paquin to 2010 Emmy Awards.

The accompanying editorial, shot by Lagerfeld, is about high-fashion fantasy.

Terry Richardson’s Tom Ford Spring 2011 Show Photos Are Out

Terry Richardson’s Tom Ford Spring 2011 Show Photos Are Out

Tom Ford's Spring 2011 Show was under a total media blackout. Only the who-and-who of fashion print world and celebrities were invited. And Terry Richardson was the only one with a camera covering the coveted show.

Terry Richardson's photos of Tom Ford's Spring 2011 show are now published for the first time in Harper's Bazaar UK January 2011 issue. In the photos we get a look at the collection as guests at the show saw it. Tom Ford's Spring 2011 collection was modeled on a runway by the likes of Lauren Hutton, Beyonce, Liya Kebede, Stella Tennant, Daphne Guinness and Joan Smalls. Real women - as Tom Ford perceives them.

We first got a taste of the collection earlier this month ...

Jessica Stam: Vogue Russia December 2010 Cover

For Vogue Russia December 2010 cover Jessica Stam was photographed by Greg Kadel (not Sølve Sundsbø) and edited into a very Christmas-y vibe.

This cover is very 90's gone 70's and I'm loving it.

Harper’s Bazaar December 2010: Crystal Renn Is An 8. Size 8

Harper’s Bazaar December 2010: Crystal Renn Is An 8. Size 8

Crystal Renn was photographed by Paola Kudacki for a Harper's Bazaar US December 2010 editorial. The images leaked and here the internet goes again. Blaming Renn for becoming too skinny. Fearing for her life that she's an anorexic again. Crazy? Yes!

Gary Dakin, Renn’s agent at Ford tells Fashionista, "She fluctuates slightly now but has pretty much landed at a full 8, sometimes a 10. Crystal is completely healthy and reintroduced exercise back into her routine." And indeed, Renn is far from looking skinny. A size 8 seems to accurately describe her.

Renn's only sin, it appears, is that she started taking care of her body - eating healthy and working out.

Now. These wacky images are a different story. The only ...

Tom Ford Spring 2011 Preview In Vogue December 2010

Tom Ford Spring 2011 Preview In Vogue December 2010

Tom Ford hates fashion democracy. That much is clear to me. Only 100 chosen lucky ones got to see the Tom Ford Spring 2011 runway show. No cameras were allowed but one - Terry Richardson's. The collection will officially debut for us mere mortals next month on Tom Ford's website.

Clearly, even Tom Ford could not beat Anna Wintour's freezing look and Vogue got to preview the Tom Ford Spring 2011 before everyone else. Hey, if it means we'll be spared from another Prada/Louis Vuitton editorial - I'm in.

From the images so far? The collection looks like Alice + Olivia meets Gucci.

Freja Beha Erichsen & Iselin Steiro: Vogue Italia November 2010 Cover

Freja Beha Erichsen & Iselin Steiro: Vogue Italia November 2010 Cover

It's a human puzzle on Vogue Italia Novemeber 2010 cover. A mixture of Freja Beha Erichsen, Iselin Steiro, Roberto Cavalli fur and Ann Demeulemeester boots, photographed by non other than Steven Meisel.

The theme for the cover and the accompanying editorial reads "Soft sensation. Sensuality and softness." Missed the mark on that one I suppose? How many people would translate fur and thigh-high leather boots as soft and sensual. Raw and sexual. Maybe.

Anja Rubik: Vogue Russia November 2010 Cover

The star of Vogue Russia November 2010 cover is the Polish model Anja Rubik as photographed by Solve Sundsbo.

Rubik is wearing all Gucci except for the bracelet which is by Celine and the earrings by Wright and Teague. Very ... European?

Cindy Crawford: Bullet Magazine Fall 2010 Cover

Cindy Crawford: Bullet Magazine Fall 2010 Cover

Cindy Crawford is on the cover of the premier Fall 2010 issue of Bullet Magazine. The magazine describes itself as "revolutionary transmedia platform contracted for innovation and modernity". Thinking rather highly of itself, the new magazine which concentrates on high fashion and edgy art, was launched on an appropriately edgy date - 10.10.10.

On the cover Cindy Crawford is wearing all Hakaan and in the accompanying editorial she's wearing the likes of Alberta Ferretti, Alexander Wang and Roberto Cavalli.

Just in case you were wondering, it is not the same Bullet magazine that was buzzed about doing a photoshoot with Montana Fishburne aka Chippy D (forgive me for even knowing she exists!)
