Wintour is Coming: Instagram’s Best Anna Wintour Memes

Ten years ago, the true measure of success was seeing your name turned into a verb or an adjective. Today, you're nobody if you're not a meme. 

And with that, here are some of Instagram's most frightening and entertaining Anna Wintour memes:

1) #AnnaWintour #MiddleFinger #KarlLagerfeld

Maybe this is an example of content that's viral but not mimetic (meaning, there aren't countless variations on it, unless you count Instagram filters), but whatever. There's a reason this photo has been regrammed so many times — of course Anna Wintour never looks more joyous than when she's flipping the bird.

Why Did Anna Wintour Attend Kanye’s Brooklyn Concert? Kimye Reportedly Still Hoping for a Vogue Cover

Yesterday morning, Fashionista reported that Grace Coddington and Anna Wintour had been spotted in the VIP section at Kanye West's concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Tuesday evening.

That's not especially surprising — over the past few years, fashion has extended its seal of approval to both Brooklyn and Kanye West — and yet it's a weirdly compelling piece of information, raising so many questions: Do Grace and Anna enjoy attending rap concerts? Did they wear ear plugs or check their phones often during the set? What do they make of Kanye West's public persona and clothing industry ambitions?

We now know that none of those questions are especially relevant. Today, Page Six reports that Wintour's real reason for attending Tuesday night's show had nothing to do with rap music (I guess we should have assumed) and everything to do with Kanye's undying wish to secure a Vogue cover for fiancé Kim Kardashian. (Of course, this isn't the first we're hearing of that rumor.) Wintour was reportedly seated beside the reality star; a grainy photo on Instagram maybe shows the two women locked in an improbable conversation.*

Hey, remember when Vogue.com cropped Kim Kardashian out of the Met Gala slideshow? Good times. 

[Update: Contrary to the Page Six report asserting that Kim Kardashian was seated alongside Anna Wintour, a commenter points out that US Weekly's photos of the VIP section show that Wintour was in fact seated beside her daughter, Bee Shaffer. Kardashian and Wintour appear to be seated at a distance from another.]

Numéro China Delivers Again With a Striking Sung Hee Kim Cover (Forum Buzz)

Sung Hee Kim on Numéro China December 2013

I will continue to flaunt my appreciation for Numéro China by presenting you its beautiful new cover for the December 2013 issue. Starring South Korean top model Sung Hee Kim, photographer Benjamin Lennox produced an interesting cover that earned praise on the tFS forums.

“I've never seen Sung look so striking, so happy for her to snag a major Asian cover. Can't wait to see the editorial,” posted member TheoG.  

Anlabe32 wrote, “I love it. And Sung Hee looks amazing!”

“I love how striking the cover is, is it meant to be slightly out of focus btw?” asked Cosmic Voices

Admittedly, given that the theme of the issue is Reflector, it seems a little odd to me as well that the lighting is not extremely flattering and that the shot is a little out of focus. But those effects add to the cover shot giving off a slightly eerie, dark vibe that I love. And could Sung Hee possibly look more stunning?

Louis Vuitton’s New Campaign with Arizona Muse and David Bowie: What’s the Deal with Those Masks? (Forum Buzz)

A couple weeks ago, Louis Vuitton released images and a teaser video from the latest installment of the brand's 'Art of Travel' campaign, starring David Bowie and Arizona Muse, and directed by Romain Gavras. Although the response to the ads in the forums has been negative overall, some tFSers went further, accusing the campaign of using blackface (in the image above). 

"Oh great, more blackface," said LabelWhore4.

From Shiru: "Blackface aside, what a horrible campaign."

But not everyone sees it that way. 

"Oh come on," says anlabe32, "those are supposed to be masks."

And more forcefully, from iclawhands: "Seriously?! People are going to call 'blackface' on this? So everyone's masked ball masks should be their skintone, yeah?"

The Wanted: Song of Style Sweaters for eLUXE

eLUXE 2

You may recognize Song of Style as the must-read blog of Aimee Song, the California Internet It-Girl who throws together bold, but laid-back, everyday outfits and shows ultra-chic interior designs to boot. As the go-to fashion voice of the digital age, she garners a whopping 3.7 million hits a month and has built up a steady fan base of over a million Instagram followers. Now it’s with such success that it comes as no surprise that Canadian e-tailer eLUXE is merging Aimee's unique style with the season's hottest sweatshirt trend.

eLUXE 1

Dubbed Song of Style for eLUXE, the collaboration will result in a limited run, six-piece capsule collection of luxury T-shirts and sweatshirts available exclusively through this holiday season beginning December 4, 2013. Designed to be integrated and imagined by the wearer, the collection is both attainable and aspirational. A perfect cut tee and a sweatshirt in a classic crew or raw neck are available in chic dark storm and white, white and black or grey and black combinations. Priced from $40 to $90.

Needless to say, it’s Aimee’s trademark style to a T – that is, taking a simple piece and harmonizing it (the music puns are unavoidable I’m afraid) with your own personal quirk and style sensibilities.

"For this collaboration I really wanted to hone in on my approach to fashion and style with my ‘Do Epic Chic’ logo and my love for Los Angeles with the playful ‘VioLA,’” says Aimee. “The T-shirt and sweatshirt styles go perfectly with my effortless style of dressing and I'm excited to pair them with denim and sky-high heels this holiday. Working with eLUXE has been a great experience and I'm excited to share my designs with the Canadian market and beyond."

I’m super excited for this and also happy to hear that eLUXE is fusing fashion and culture with such a perfect capsule collection. The online retail powerhouse also claims that this collaboration marks the start of a series of capsule collections with notable fashion voices to be rolled out throughout 2014, so stay tuned for more info.

Jessica Hart Demonstrates the Easiest Work-to-Party Outfit Ever

Keeping in mind the sartorial train wreck she was forced into at this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, you can’t blame Jessica Hart for wanting to keep things sleek and chic for a while.

And we can’t think of anything more incongruous with a backwards sheer jumpsuit accessorized with mismatching underwear and an inflatable balloon than the skinny black suit Miss Hart wore to Australia’s GQ Men of the Year Awards on Tuesday.

Proving a dress isn’t always your sexiest option, the model managed to keep it classy despite effectively going shirtless on the arrivals carpet. Her closely tailored blazer and trousers is changing all our preexisting notions about plain black suits – can you name a more genius office-to-bar transition than simply leaving your shirt on your desk?

Bonus points awarded for keeping her beauty look characteristically fresh (Jess does bed hair and dewy skin like nobody’s business, even when she’s just stepped of a flight from NYC). Makeup-wise, she’s keeping to lip gloss, a slick of mascara and brushed up brows, but a smoky eye wouldn’t go amiss if it’s after 5 p.m.
