This is Bobby Finger reporting LIVE from Jezebel HQ with your daily Leg Report. [Cue old timey police siren] Today’s whopper of a story comes straight off the December cover of W Magazine, and features an unlikely pair of human stems belonging to living legend and proud owner of a basement mall, Barbra Streisand.
The latest edition of W Magazine, a celebration of the tenth anniversary of its yearly art issue, inexplicably features Kendall Jenner reenacting iconic pieces of performance art. In one of the short videos the magazine shared on their Instagram, Jenner pays “homage” to Yoko Ono’s enduring feminist critique, Cut Piece.
Here’s video of Jennifer Lopez doing a poetic reading of Sir-Mix-A-Lot’s ass classic “Baby Got Back” for W, which is apt because she’s the very inspiration for the song.
W assembled a trio of cool teens for its April cover: Zendaya, Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka and my ruler Willow Smith, who all personify what the magazine describes as “a low-key attitude.”
A dress from Prada’s Autumn/Winter 2015 runway show has made its way onto not one but two September covers this fall. It’s also snuck into a few other magazines in the past couple months, and its popularity has resulted in an embarrassing fallout: not only is the dress ugly, several publications seemingly anticipated…
For their January issue devoted to the Best Performances of 2015 (well, movies that came out in 2014 but will get awards in 2015), W Magazine got 39 actors together and dressed them up.
Naomi Campbell covered W magazine but somehow lost her arms in the process. In the cover image, the supermodel is holding her limbs behind her back but she ends up looking arm-less.
Rihanna poses beside Iman and Naomi Campbell for W magazine's September issue and it is a joy. Drenched in Balmain, the stylish trio personify black beauty across three age groups, countries and are très glamour. Rihanna’s solo fashion story is something else. What, I'm not exactly sure.
For a spread in March's W magazine, photographers Mert Alas and Max Piggott took pictures of some people who are famous in real life and therefore famous on social media naked in bed. The shoot was called "Pillow Tweets" and was styled by Edward Enninful.
Another day as summer wanes on, another intern lawsuit. Two interns who worked at W Magazine and The New Yorker are suing the publications' parent company, Condé Nast, requesting they be paid back wages, interest and attorneys' fees for the work they performed.
Besides Beyoncé and the Clydesdale, there was something else eye-catching during the Super Bowl: Calvin Klein's first-ever Super Bowl commercial.

Black Swan is soooo two years ago, and yet: The new cover of W features Hunger Games badass Jennifer Lawrence impersonating a fine feathered friend. She does not look happy as a lark, or proud as a peacock, however: She looks like a sitting duck, dead in the eyes.
In the current issue of W, fashion stylist Nicola Formichetti is quoted relating a rather damning anecdote about his time at Dazed & Confused magazine. Formichetti says he once walked off the set of a shoot with the techno-world music fusion group Zohar. What had the band done to offend Nicola Formichetti? The stylist…
Both of the covers of the new W have leaked. The snapshot of Christina Aguilera's cover that was leaked leaves a lot to be desired, so perhaps it isn't a fair fight, but Beyoncé is clearly winning this one. Lynn Hirschberg's profile of Aguilera — "The pop diva comes clean about her fall from grace, and how she's…
So: These two sexy creatures are promoting their film Blue Valentine. But the folks at W obviously know that you wish Ryan "Hey Girl" Gosling was embracing you instead of Jen from Dawson's Creek.
"Fashion Cliques" is supposedly a fun little listicle thingy on page 202 of the September issue of W. The concept: A guide which categorizes fashionable women as one of five different "types." Including "The Girl Who Eats Her Feelings."
