Don’t let the lackluster cover turn you off. The editorial is gorgeous. We miss you Summer Roberts.
I’ve been told by several people that Kendrick Lamar is one rapper that I need to see in concert. Luckily, Bumbershoot gave me that opportunity this past summer and while I don’t typically listen to Kendrick’s material, I remember once upon a time when I battled another university in Seattle to book him for a music festival. At the time he was very up-and-coming and today’s he’s on the cover of GQ. These days, I’m listening to a different genre of music, but I was very impressed with the way that he commands a crowd. I’ve never seen such rowdy fans, but I suppose that just means he’s doing his job. Also, he cleans up nicely.
He’s GQ’s man of the year, but are we surprised? He released two albums and collaborated with Jay-Z for pretty much the entire year and as of 2012 was officially a taken man. We’ve loved Justin since his NSYNC days and probably will continue to feel the same way about him with every project. A part of me just hopes he’ll take a break from music one year and take up a regular gig on Saturday Night Live.
It takes a very memorable editorial to stick in my mind and one that just happens to exhibit cuteness all over. In the latest December/January issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Laura Brown dreams up an idea in which model Angela Lindvall totes along a monster by Japanese artist Takashi Murakami to create the most adorable spread ever including the artist himself!
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.
