Condé Nast Discontinues Internship Program

The publication that has made Lauren Conrad famous as a Teen Vogue intern has decided to discontinue their internship program. Girls all over the country are crying into their pillows right now. Actually, the internships at Condé Nast are kind of a big deal. Former interns have used it as a launch pad for fashion industry careers and while the program itself has received a bad name in the news after being sued by two former summer interns who claimed to have been paid under minimum wage, there are people who feel like they have received great industry experience.

Current interns will not be affected by this movement and as of right now Condé Nast has declined to comment on the matter.

Snaps for a Snapshot

Who: Teen Vogue Online Editor Naomi Nevitt

Wearing: A Boy by Band of Outsiders collared shirt, vintage sweater, Balenciaga skirt and Alexander Wang shoes

Where: Teen Vogue // Conde Nast Offices

Can I have this outfit? Can I have this hair style? I once tried the straight-across bangs look for a week before I switched back to the side bangs, but a certain someone recently suggested I try straight-across again… hmmmmm… I’d say yes if only I were guaranteed to look exactly like Naomi.

@Condeelevator the birth and death

Just as soon as I thought I was going to become a slave to the @CondeElevator Twitter account, the anony behind it decided to call it quits. I can’t blame the person, I mean – hey – they’ve got a great thing going for them working at Conde Nast Publications and all of that is much more important than getting a few a lot of laughs.

So long @CondeElevator! It was fun while it lasted.

Michelle Obama – Jason Wu style

As predicted Michelle Obama is gracing the cover of Vogue’s March issue. There had been speculation for quite a few months but it’s not really any surprise. Obama was shot by Annie Leibovitz from the Hay-Adams Hotel in downtown Washington DC, wearing yet again another Jason Wu design.  For a fresh 26 year old designer, Wu is certainly getting a lot of applause lately especially since Obama also chose his design for the innaugaration ball. Michelle gets my vote for the best dressed first lady um… ever? I can’t wait to see what she wears next!
