Every now and again Von Gutenberg likes to peak in to what other fashion magazines (or magazines devoting an issue to fashion) are up to. Certainly last time we took a nice long look at what Playboy was up to and though yes, Heff has influenced the fashions as much as the mores of the times, here is some doings of the more ‘moda’ motivation.
We’re still not seeing any latex (and probably never will in it), but once again Sports Illustrated’s Swim Suit issue is breaking new cultural fashion ground. Last year the magazine featured its first ever plus-sized model (Ashley Graham) wearing a bathing suit in arguably its most popular yearly issue. This year Ashley will appear in an ad for retailer Swimsuits for All alongside the oldest model S.I. has ever featured amongst its bathing beauties, 56 year old Nicola Griffin.
Griffin told the Huffington Post “I am overjoyed to represent all women over the age of 50 and hope this campaign inspires them to feel confident in a swimsuit — a gold bikini, no less!”
Those gold bikinis are actually worn by three different plus-sized ladies in the #SwimSexy campaign (the third is African American model Philomena Kwao.)
Graham, plus-sized ladies, S.I. and Swimsuits for All are all making the most of this publicity…as they should.
Selena Gomez struts her bikini clad body in a multi-spread “W” magazine showing. Deemed her sexiest shots yet, we catch Justin Bieber’s ex in Gucci and Louis Vuitton (to name just some of what she wears) showing herself off on a beach.
And while not about the cover of a fashion magazine or even what’s being featured between its pages, this news is about one of the most famous couture magazines ever: Vogue. The U.K.’s National Portrait Gallery opens their Vogue 100: A Century of Style, the National Portrait Gallery’s exhibition tomorrow.
