The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Kerry Washington Covers Essence March 2012, Alberta Ferretti For Macy’s Impulse, and Anna Wintour is A Top Fundraiser for the Obama Campaign
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

Kerry Washington covers Essence Magazine’s March 2012 issue in a white hot dress. What do you think of the shot? (Essence)
• First she features it-girls Solange Knowles, Julia Sarr-Jamois, and Oroma Elewa in her demi couture runway show, and now, she’s teaming up with Macy’s. Alberta Ferretti is the latest designer to lend her talents to the famed department store’s Impulse collection. The 30-piece capsule is the picture of femininity, with sketches revealing a lace-trimmed blouse and eyelet lace pants (!), and a frothy floor-sweeping draped chiffon gown. The collection will be available in 185 Macy’s stores starting April 17, with prices ranging from $49-$119. So who’s buying? (WWD)


• Harper’s Bazaar has overhauled the design of its whole magazine, rolling out a cleaner, more modern look for its March issue. Covering the newly revamped issue is Gwyenth Paltrow in a revealing Anthony Vaccarello dress, looking down, possibly making sure none of her ladybits are falling out. The magazine will be an inch longer (still not quite so long as W), have thicker pages, and a more organized layout. The cover you see here is the one that will be sent to subscribers. What do you think of Harpers’ new look? (WWD)


• Anna Wintour has already raised $500,000 for Barack Obama‘s reelection, making her one of the top-tier “bundlers” for the campaign. How’d she do it? Dinners at her private home and forcing Marc Jacobs to participate in Runway to Win. (The Cut)


Daphne Guinness‘s fifth avenue apartment is on sale for $14 million, but I’m really interested in that fabulous painting featuring Naomi Campbell in her living room. (Curbed)


• You won’t be seeing Nicki Minaj‘s heelless Giusseppe Zanotti platforms and poor man’s Grace Jones pose on BET anytime soon. The channel that once aired *classic* hip-hop music videos like “Tip Drill,” has banned “Stupid Hoe” for being too explicit. Music videos featuring strippers: ok. Music videos featuring Nicki Minaj shaking her appendage booty in a cage: not ok. (Hello Beautiful)


• Victoria Beckham‘s fashion film short for her new brand, Victoria by Victoria Beckham is delightfully quirky, playful, and cat-filled. Check it out! (Fashionista)

    I’m going to have to check out that Harpers. Gwen’s body is ba-donk-ulous! As a fashion mag lover, its nice to see them stepping up their game in terms of the look and feel of the pub.

  2. Kitty B. says:

    Love it!!! Plus she’s repping us 5heads!!! heart it :)

  3. fashionforward says:

    Horrible! Someone should be fired! Why does her forhead and head look so damn big?! And that damn wig!!! That white dress washes her out! I depand a do over for you Kerry you are so much better than this!

    Not loving Keri’s cover…wasn’t someone just on the cover of Essence with a very similar white dress and background? I like the new cover of Bazaar, they were never on my list of fav magazines so I may check this out to see if they’ve improved enough for me to subscribe. I’m glad BET banned the video, it’s not the images that are the major problem, it’s the words. It doesn’t matter how long it’s taken BET to get it right, but they’re finally listening and getting the bigger picture.

  5. Kerri has a swagger about her. i like her.

  6. Indigo says:

    No Black station should play Nicki Minaj… She hates being black..and she is promoting self hate.

  7. SHAQ NICHOLE says:

    Kerry is such a beautiful girl. Once again, I don’t think Essence did her justice and that dress, makes her look like she has a baby bump! Satin dresses can be so tricky when shot, does not flatter most people only if you pencil thin. They could have done better in my opinion.

  8. dyshaun says:

    Harpers has been my fav for so long. Been printing folks that look like me for a long time.

  9. Crystal says:

    Essence’s covers have not been up to par lately.

  10. ?!@#$%^&* says:

    Indigo, what makes you say that? I have never heard that about Kerri Washington before, please do explain I am curious!

  11. Indigo says:

    I didn’t say anything about Kerry…

  12. ?!@#$%^&* says:

    Oops, sorry, I meant Nicki…
    Is it that her skin is looking lighter and lighter these days?

  13. peter pan says:

    BET also banned Ciara’s Ride It video. I think the network as a problem with female artist being explicit and/or hyper sexual, while promoting this same behavior in male artist. Censorship standards (whether they are high or low) should be the same for everyone.

    ps. not defending Niki, just had this bone to pic with BET

  14. Mads says:

    Badly done Kerri cover – she’s looks preggo and the dress doesn’t for right. She is so much prettier than that.

  15. Make this an important part of any puppie’s day for its lifetime. This is a dangerous practice and should not be encouraged. A lot of dog owners might be asking how long I can train my dogs. When you are both comfortable with the basics, you might want to teach your new friend some tricks. It’s all about putting your dog in a position to
    do the right thing and then observing them in the act of doing
    the RIGHT thing and praising them wildly.
