Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte reportedly has multiple offers to create -- by which we mean put his name on -- a fashion line. He also has multiple TV offers, endorsement offers and so forth. [Hollywood Reporter] But -- and this doesn't really surprise me -- the Vogue cover in June on which he frolicked across the sand with fellow Olympians Serena Williams and Hope Solo turns out to have produced the weakest newsstand sales of the year so far for Vogue. It doesn't surprise me because it looked more like a fitness magazine cover than a Vogue cover.

Lady Gaga is a musician first but voracious fashion fan second. What a moment, then, to see her staring out from the cover of the September issue of Vogue magazine. The year's most anticipated, thanks to its comprehensive fall fashion spread, and often largest (her issue's page count is a record-breaking 916) sees Gaga shot by photography team Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. And that double take you just did? The Lady sees the resemblance too, to another fashion iconoclast: RuPaul.

NEW YORK - A tiny apartment in a run-down industrial neighborhood in Brooklyn is not where you'd expect to be looking at original color negatives of Elizabeth Taylor, Natalie Wood, Audrey Hepburn, Catherine Deneuve, Julie Newmar and Sophia Loren - especially using a bare light bulb and sheet of typing paper as a light box. But that is what happened on a recent night, when the iconic commercial and celebrity photographer Bert Stern - perhaps known...

Days after a campaign led by a 14-year-old girl secured a promise from Seventeen magazine not to alter body shapes in photographs, more teens protested against Teen Vogue on Wednesday with "Keep it Real" signs and a makeshift red carpet. About half a dozen girls high-fived each other as they catwalked near the magazine's office in New York City's Times Square. They've collected more than 28,000 signatures in just over a week asking Teen Vogue to follow Seventeen's lead in declaring an end to digitally manipulating images.

There is Black Friday for bargain hunters, Cyber Monday for tech lovers and Fashion's Night Out for fashionistas. It was only a matter of time before retailers invented a shopping holiday for kids. Enter Teen Vogue magazine, which has officially anointed Aug. 11 as Back-to-School Saturday, an event designed for students and their harried parents. Back-to-School Saturday will mimic other big national shopping days with dozens of retailers -- including H&M, Express and American Eagle Outfitters -- signed on as advertisers who will also offer sales and promotions as enticement, the New York Times reported.

On one of the holiest nights of Ramadan, Marwa Atik chose a crowded Southern California mosque to debut her latest creation. It was just after midnight when the 20-year-old walked into the Islamic Center of Irvine, dressed in a long, flowing burgundy robe, her head wrapped in a charcoal-colored chiffon hijab , trimmed with decorative gold zippers. After the group prayers, sermon and Koran recitation, a woman approached Atik, gesturing at the scarf. "OK, I want one," she said excitedly.

The lineup of guest judges on the new season of "America's Next Top Model" may not mean much to the average viewer. But in the fashion world, Patrick Demarchelier and Matthew Rolston need no introduction. And fashionistas know why the sought-after photographers decided to climb aboard the reality modeling competition in its 15th cycle, which premieres Sept. 8. Two words: Italian Vogue. The magazine, considered the most prestigious fashion publication in the world, has partnered with the CW show for the first time.

Last year's first installment of Fashion's Night Out, an effort to jump-start a sagging industry with an evening full of shopping events in major cities all over the world that was brought to us by New York-based Vogue magazine and the Council of Fashion Designers of America, was, not surprisingly, very Manhattan-centric. Southern California was barely represented, with a few local scattered efforts staged at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills and the Fred Segal Center on Melrose Avenue. What a difference a year makes.
