Can’t get enough of WORN? No one can. Shit, I work here, and I have woken up in a cold sweat at two in the morning to make sure all my issues are still intact on my bookshelf. (It’s not an irrational fear; my puppy is currently in her “Eat paper, eat all the paper” phase.)
Our print issue comes out twice a year. Our blog is updated three times a week. While quality over quantity is one of our many mottos, we still want to keep you updated on everything that happens in between. There is no shortage of WORN on the the social network-sphere:
Follow @wornjournal on Instagram to see behind the scenes pictures of photoshoots, realtime events coverage, and daily office shenanigans.
Follow wornjournal on Tumblr as our managing editor G. Stegelmann curates some the best sartorial images on the internet (her taste, it is impeccable).
Follow @wornjournal on Twitter as we link to fashion things we like, place calls for shoots, and share updates from our neurotic associate online editor at two in the morning as she makes sure her puppy isn’t eating all her magazines. Ahem.
Killer Fashion: An Industry in Denial
The reason anorexia nervosa is so prevalent in fashion all depends on who you ask: Franca Sozzani prefers to blame Facebook, while others point the finger at the new skinny Diet Pepsi can. The death toll is steadily rising, and people are pointing fingers in every direction. Libby Rodenbough from In These Times details how the CFDA is trying to keep that finger from pointing in their direction.
Advanced Style: Age and Beauty
Last week G. Stegelmann (the “G” stands for Genius) wrote one of her trademark brilliant blog posts on style past the age of 29; she concluded that our elders “don’t look good for their age; they look good because of it.” Nowness has an exclusive short film by Lina Plioplyte featuring the hilarious, adorable, and inspiring women of Advanced Style. As Ari Seth Cohen says on his blog, it really is “proof from the wise and silver-haired set that personal style advances with age”.
Elizabeth Taylor and AIDS: A Brief History of the 80s
The sad death of Elizabeth Taylor has resulted in a flood of portraits on the Internet – photos of her as the precocious beauty in National Velvet, the regal queen Cleopatra, the terrifying wife in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, and many more – but I particularly enjoyed this written portrait of Elizabeth Taylor, the activist. Brace yourself for a tired (but still true!) cliche: Her commitment to AIDS fund-raising is a testament to real beauty, inside and out.
Tomboy Style Icon: Margaret Trudeau
The federal election is approaching fast, or as I like to call it, Canada’s Next Top Prime Minister (not really). Tomboy Style highlights our most fashionable first lady. Laureen Harper should be taking notes.
The Wornettes got their own Twitter! Follow them for a glimpse inside the WORN office and some really bad puns.
