These days fashion shoots and pornography are hardly that far removed from one another; nudity in fashion becoming a common feature, and increasingly blurred lines leaving us to wonder what exactly it is that we’re buying. Some have gone beyond, however, creating a new dynamic; for example, Glass magazine with this shoot.

WHY WE LOVE IT
This season, soft is not just about frilly blouses. Pick any article of clothing and you can find it in tempting colors and textures. Pieces in jersey, cashmere or silk are layered and draped with an emphasis on smoothing over curves and adding a sense of ease.

Career not going exactly as you might have planned? Easy fix. Simply pose for a bit of girl on girl self and hey presto: instant publicity. Or at least, that might be the sentiment that I’d want you to walk away with were this shoot actually not pretty good.
Not one to normally grab any attention within the fashion scene, Megan Fox’s pictorial for the June / July issue of Interview has left me wondering if she might be better off in front of a still lens as opposed to that of the film variety.
Taste-test these fun drink recipes created for the hit movie’s four leading ladies.
Cosmopolitans are so last season. Literally. The pink drink — a mix of vodka, Triple Sec, and cranberry juice — was made famous by the hit HBO series in the late ’90s, when Carrie Bradshaw ordered hers at every bar in New York. But now, each girl has her own signature concoction, courtesy of SKYY Vodka. Grab a martini glass and your best girlfriends, and drink up!
This classic shade has been a showstopper for decades, but what does it take to pull off the copper top? Style, confidence, and a killer do.
