January Vogue: Everything Old Is ... Still Old

Illustration for article titled January iVogue/i: Everything Old Is ... Still Old

This January, Vogue is promoting expensive vacations and hipster boys in skinny pants. What is this, 2005?

Anna Wintour has apparently tired of the "affordable" stuff she pretended to care about in 2009, and is back to her old tricks, sending Joan Juliet Buck on an excursion to an $800-a-night spa in Utah that Buck calls "a potent combination of comfort, sensual rewards, and privilege." Vogue even did a whole photo shoot in and around the spa, starring Daria Werbowy in climbing boots, and one has to wonder whether this little retreat — like Gwyneth Paltrow's recent getaway — was comped. To distract readers from such concerns, Vogue shows how hip it is by packing its January photo shoots with tousled young musicians. Indie rock: so cool! So now! Excuse us — we're off to buy some stocks.

DISCUSSION

This might be a stupid question, but if you guys hate what goes on in fashion mags so much, why do you read them and pick them apart? Isn't it kind of like looking at the Wall Street Journal and getting mad that there's so much business/finance in there?
