The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Conservatives Enraged Over President Obama Glamour Interview, A First Look at H&M x Maison Martin Margiela, and a Full Look at Carine Roitfeld for M.A.C
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

• President Barack Obama has come under fire for agreeing to be interviewed by Glamour magazine. While he would not be the first President to talk to the ladymag, (George W. Bush sat down with the glossy in January 2008,) conservative pundits and political enthusiasts think Mr. Obama has far more important things to attend to than a frivolous piece full of softball questions. National Review writer Jim Geraghty told WWD“The grumbling about Obama’s fluff interviews would be quieter if the country were in a time of peace and prosperity, or if he hadn’t gone close to eight weeks without a press conference. Obama may be getting more grief than Bush did, but the state of the country might have voters less patient about the fluff interviews than in a normal political environment.” What do you think? Should Obama have done the interview? (WWD)

• The folks over at Gucci are working hard to eliminate “cybersquatters” websites who use the brand’s name to peddle counterfeit Gucci wares. The Italian design house is looking to shut down six impostor websites. With the luck luxury brand have had this year when it comes to copyright infringement, there is no doubt each of the offending sites will be shut down. (Vogue UK)

Nordstrom has tapped Push Girls star Angela Rockwood to model for their newest campaign. The 37-year-old Rockwood was left paralyzed and wheelchair bound after a car accident 11 years ago, which forced her to abandon dreams of a modeling career. With Rockwood’s previous modeling experience and reality television recognition, she serves as the perfect candidate to rep the retailer.  (People StyleWatch)

  1. I need that red draped H&M x Maison Martin Margiela dress. The F21 look book is cute but never find those pieces in store … blah.

    YAY for Angela and getting realize her goals.

  2. I need the Maison Martin Margiela x H&M dress. Super cute

    Gucci will be suing everyone for the rest of their life. Education of what happens when you support fakes needs to happen.

    Forever 21 look book is cute but i bet I wont be able to find the stuff in stores.

    Congrats Angela for fulfilling her dreams

  3. Of course Obama should have done the interview. Like it or not, the young vote is very important. The more interviews he does the more people read about him and what he’s trying to accomplish the more votes he gets!

  4. He did the interview to appeal to young women voters. Have they seen his commercials? It’s not that hard to figure out that he is trying to appeal to women.

  5. sharri says:

    You want female votes, go where women rich, poor, middle class, old, young, conservative or liberal hang. Smart move President Obama, I never buy glamor mag, I definitely will be picking up this issue.

  6. Allie says:

    Oh please!!! We were in the middle of a war in January 2008!!! Bush was in cowboy boots swinging a gulf club every chance he got while soldiers were being killed. No one made a big fuss over his Glamour interview then. WTH is the big deal with Obama doing the interview?

  7. Allie says:

    **golf club**

  8. LaTasha says:

    **heavy sigh**. Someone always has a problem with what President Obama does. Please get a life and Republicans how about creating policies that can help Americans. I love the sweater in Forever 21′s Campaign. Is the sweater suppose to be have a leopard look?

  9. Carla says:

    or how about during hurrican katrina he fly over New Orleans on his way somewhere of lesser importantance. OBAMA 12, they are gonna fuss regardless

  10. kantessab says:

    totally agree, they are never in the

  11. Dominique says:

    He already appeals to women with common sense. He’s not the trying to tell us what to do with our bodies – the Republicans are!

  12. Dominique says:

    Last time I checked, Bush had plenty of other “pressing” matters to attend to as well. But of course, it’s okay for the Republicans to do it. It’s only wrong when President Obama does it. *eye roll* He will never win with those people. Regardless, he’s got my vote! #Obama2012!
