The Glee Portrayal Of The Magazine Industry In Last Night’s Episode Was The Worst

The Glee Portrayal Of The Magazine Industry In Last Night's Episode Was The Worst

Okay, Glee. I’m a little insulted by last night’s episode. As someone who just spent four years studying magazines in college and doing internship after internship and who moved to New York City right after graduation to find a magazine job and STILL hasn’t found one, I’m super annoyed at your portrayal of Kurt and his internship at Vogue.com.

Sarah Jessica Parker’s House Doesn’t Meet The Anna Wintour Standard

Sarah Jessica Parkerâs House Doesnât Meet The Anna Wintour Standard

Last night, Sarah Jessica Parker hosted a swanky fundraiser for President Obama in her West Village townhouse. Anna Wintour co-hosted, and attendees paid $40,000 a person to attend with fellow party-goers including Meryl Streep and Michael Kors. It was a big night, but surely Parker, if anyone, should have been prepared: She’s a New York City fashion icon who has been on the cover of Vogue and played a Vogue contributor on TV! But alas, according to today’s New York Post, her home decorating style didn’t exactly measure up to Vogue’s expectations. More »

Questionable Choices: This Is What Anna Wintour Wore to the Knicks Game

Questionable Choices: This Is What Anna Wintour Wore to the Knicks Game

Anna Wintour was one of the many celebs in attendance to watch the Knicks lose their final quarterfinal match against the Celtics in spectacular fashion yesterday. And this is what she wore! A conservative top, jewels, and a poofy skirt in Knickerbocker orange and blue. We’re all for team spirit, but there’s something weirdly cognitively dissonant about rocking uniform colors on an article of clothing that’s so utterly un-sporty. Like, somehow wearing a black tutu to a Dodger game would be less weird than wearing a blue and white tutu, because one could reasonably argue that they just happened to be wearing a tutu and happened to have arrived at the stadium. Or something. Like we said, this photo did something weird to our brain. More »

Crushable Books: Excerpts from Nicole Wallace’s ‘Eighteen Acres’ or ‘The Devil Wears Prada’?

Crushable Books: Excerpts from Nicole Wallace's 'Eighteen Acres' or 'The Devil Wears Prada'?

Former White House Communications director Nicole Wallace, who previously worked for the Bush/Cheney campaign in ’04, has written a book. Even though Eighteen Acres:A Novel is a work of fiction (it says novel, see?), from the pieces we’ve read* Nicole’s protagonist Melanie is much like Nicole herself: she works at the White House, is a woman in a workplace full of men, and has an “insider view” to the politics of the 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. She also really, really likes to talk about her accessories. We’ve picked several passages of the book, and compared them to portions of Lauren Weisberger‘s The Devil Wears Prada, a comparable parable about working for an Anna Wintour stand-in at a large magazine. Try to guess which is which!
