What’s Wrong with Vogue?

January 2, 2009

NO one at Vogue, least of all its editor in chief, Anna Wintour, could have been seriously stung by a recent letter from a reader complaining that the magazine was in a rut. After all, Ms. Wintour chose to publish the letter, which chided the magazine for featuring the same women — “Gwyneth Paltrow, Caroline Trentini, Gisele Bündchen, Nicole Kidman, Sienna Miller, blah, blah, blah,” as the reader, Kathryn Williams of San Diego, said. “I could make a calendar of your cover girls, and it would probably repeat year after year.” She added: “Let’s face it: Vogue is getting a bit stale. It is a pity, too — because the magazine is still much better than the others.”

– “What’s Wrong With Vogue?” By Cathy HoyrnSo begins Cathy Hoyrn’s great article about Vogue, Anna Wintour, what they’re getting wrong, and what they’re getting right. I think Vogue’s getting out of the fashion realm and into more, dare I say, ELLE type publishing. Vogue needs to become more like their Italian or French counterparts. Otherwise, where will we fashion diehards get our fashion fix?? This blog, yes, but where else!! Article here.


P.S. Anna Wintour’s speaking in New York about her charity work in May. Although I’m guessing most people will be talking about Vogue and fashion. Who cares about charity? Full info here.
