The US Vogue Formula

Effing Awesome Person - All their Personality = Boring Ass Cover

Runway Looks + Dull Background = Boring Ass "Trends" Editorial

Talented Celebrity + Blank Faces = Boring Ass Editorial

well, I love this post cos what you're saying is completely true! those are extremely boring, esp the trends one though it does serve its purpose of making the clothes the centre of the attention. I hated the australia editorial as well, no matter how good looking both of them are.

UGH - You don't even want to hear my feelings on Vogue (US, especially). I'm so totally bored to tears with that magazine anymore, it's depressing.

Thank you so much for the loving congrats, I'm still SO excited and totally jittery! :)

U r a fashion addict ! If u want, I invite u to come to see some of the most beautiful heels, dresses and bags of the Paris fashion weeks and many more...!

Eh, I think Sienna is so far from awesome especially with her current 'activities' but you're right, those covers are pretty dull. I love Nicole and Hugh Jackman though! Their editorial is just hilarious, it just looks so fake!

I agree with you totally. US Vogue takes fashion and waters it down for the general public. At least this month we are lucky to at least have an actual model on the cover. Vogue Paris all the way....

Dear, you are very quirky! True, some of the works are more on quantity than quality! I really agree! However, your cute posts have always put a BRIGHT smile on my face!

P.S. I've added you into my blogroll xxxxxxxxx

When I look at the Vogues from other countries (UK, Korea, MEXICO), it's such a stark contrast to what we get in the U.S. I'm sick and tired of seeing stupid celebrities on the cover. I want Erin Wasson, NOT Beyonce! This is fashion goddammit!

the photographers that work for vogue us are awesome... outside us vogue.
