Talk about the hotness!

The September 2009 cover of i-D Magazine features four of Blindie’s brightest star models on one cover: Chanel Iman, Sessilee Lopez, Jourdan Dunn, and Arlenis Sosa.

We’re really loving the “Pretty Young Things” cover line as well–we couldn’t agree more!

OK! Magazine Publishes Last Photo of Michael Jackson on Cover, Sparking Outrage

michael-jackson-okmagazine

OK! magazine made a tacky decision to use one of the last images of Michael Jackson as he lay dying as the cover for their tribute issue, sparking outrage among fans and musicians (like Sean “Diddy” Combs and Jay-Z), who have launched a petition to stop the publication of further copies.

The petition argues that the tabloid has violated Jackson’s right to privacy, while OK!‘s editorial director Sarah Ivens adamantly defends her cover:

“It’s a photo that captures the surprise and the upset and the moment of this breaking news story . . . I hope the cover will provoke readers. It celebrated the man, but it also does expose that he was an eccentric character who lived a very controversial life.”

Blindie finds the tabloid’s cover to be sensational, a ploy to sell covers rather than a celebration of the Jackson’s musical legacy.

Notorious Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour finally admitted to requesting Oprah to lose weight for her 1998 Vogue cover shoot.

Telling the talk show host to drop 20 pounds for her cover, Wintour revealed on 60 Minutes, “It was a very gentle suggestion. I went to Chicago to visit Oprah, and I suggested that it might be an idea that she lose a little bit of weight.”

Oprah appeared on the October 1998 cover with the headline: “Oprah! A Major Movie, An Amazing Makeover.”

“She was a trooper,” Wintour added. “She totally welcomed the idea, and she went on a very stringent diet. And it was one of our most successful covers ever.”

Color on the Cover: Jessica Szohr Lands FIrst SOLO Cover sans Gossip Girl Co-Stars!

Gossip Girl star Jessica Szohr is the cover girl for the April issue of Lucky magazine.

Blindie assumes hooking up with delicious bad boy, costar Ed Westwick, must’ve upped Szohr’s fame ante, nabbing the ethnic girl of the CW’s teen hit her first solo cover!

Color on the Cover: Freida Pinto & Dev Patel Take Over Entertainment Weekly

Freida Pinto and Dev Patel, the stars of Slumdog Millionaire, cover the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, with their EIGHT Academy Awards!

In the issue, the magazine chronicles how the small film from India, helmed by a Brit (Danny Boyle) became an Oscar darling.

“Working on the film has sparked a confidence in me, and a passion for acting,” Patel says. “I feel I can hold my head up high now. I feel like I matured five years in the space of five months. I’m 18 and I was at the Oscars yesterday!”

While Pinto, who can next be seen under the direction of Woody Allen, says of her journey, “Now I think that the fruit of the struggle ends up being the sweetest taste possible. I mean, this is strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, apples, bananas–the sweetest fruits in the world put together. It changed my life!”

Video Virus: Kay Pettigrew’s Cover on Fresh Prince of Bel Air Theme Song

Blindie’s a big Gilmore Girls fan and through Twitter we found this on former GG star John Cabrera’s tweet: singer songwriter Kay Pettigrew reworking the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song.

Not only does she take away the beat and the rapping, but she totally transforms Will Smith‘s original into a catchy folksy song that Yael Naim or Feist or Regina Spektor would make into a single!
