The Best and Worst of August Fashion Magazines


As fashion magazines shift into high gear for all of fall's athletic stilettos, shaggy fur sleeves, and ruffled evening dresses there's all sorts of zany behavior on display. Picture a desperate fashion editor screaming, "How can we style this dress that's already been in seventeen editorials in some new way?" Answers included nudity, cute animals, and anything even remotely Olympics-themed (thanks for the biceps, Harper's Bazaar Russia!). Oh, and Vogue Paris shot a model tearing her face off (see above). As always, we picked the best and the worst of them; click through this month's slideshow to see all the awards.
