“The no-bullshit vibe of the podcast is why people like it so much,” says Krystyna Hutchinson of the Guys We Fucked podcast. This week, Hutchinson and cofounder Corinne Fisher talk to Vogue.com Creative Digital Director Sally Singer about how the scope of their podcast has changed since the show first started “as a social experiment” in December 2013. Though the series has always focused on sexuality, Hutchinson and Fisher explain that it’s evolved into a discussion of other hot-button issues while still taking a distinctly comedic approach to the subject matter. “Comedians is what we are first and foremost,” Hutchinson says. “Part of being a comedian is your social commentary and how you view the world and how comedy is such a great way to take all the things that frustrate me about life and about being a woman and turning that on its head.” Plus, as Fisher adds, “It’s really convenient being a comedian because you know a lot of fucked-up people.” Get to know the girls from the groundbreaking anti-slut-shaming podcast series, here.

“I started at 15 and I was told I’d be done by 18 so I didn’t take it seriously—I was a science nerd!” says Maye Musk of her early beginnings modeling, as heard in the latest episode of the Vogue podcast. This week, the 68-year-old supermodel talks to Vogue Bookings Director Helena Suric about her uncontested career longevity, which is made all the more noteworthy when placed within the context of an industry that has traditionally centered itself on all things youth. “Instagram has introduced me to many people,” explains Musk, who has utilized social media to stay increasingly relevant. Just ask her 22k followers and counting. “It introduced me to a manager who introduced me to a publicist and then I met IMG Models. So this is a reason why my career is blossoming now.” Tune in to hear more about Musk’s claim to fame on the photo-sharing platform and magazine covers alike.

“Lupita [Nyong’o] is a model,” says Vogue Fashion Director Tonne Goodman to André Leon Talley in this week’s episode of the Vogue podcast. “This girl can do anything, and in terms of what a model is—a model is someone who represents what they’re wearing with the most authenticity—she embraces it totally and understands it. She really does understand fashion.” For the Academy Award winner’s October Vogue cover spread—photographed by Mario Testino and set in the village in Kenya where Nyong’o was raised—that meant donning a traditional African beauty statement from the neck up. “When she came in for her fitting, she had a head wrap on, and indicated that she wanted to use that in the shoot which I thought was a fabulous idea,” Goodman says.
Writer Elizabeth Rubin furthermore recalls how she also traveled to Kenya for her interview with Nyong’o. “We talked about what it was like for her to have this incredible outer-body experience after her first

In the latest installment of the Vogue podcast, Gypsy Sport’s Rio Uribe offers up a lesson in making one’s dreams a reality—a skill the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund alum says he has been honing since childhood. “My family was very resourceful and all of our Halloween costumes were very makeshift,” Uribe tells Vogue’s Mark Holgate with a laugh. “Growing up, I was taught to be . . . a make-things-happen type of guy.” As Uribe explains, the first lesson in finding success outside of the classroom starts with believing in yourself. “I did not go to school and I did not get all of the internships, but I did always have the passion and desire to be in the fashion industry, and more importantly, to be a creator.” Here, on the heels of the designer’s Spring 2017 ready-to-wear show, tune in to get the full story you won’t find anywhere else, not even on the runway.

How does one become “the face that launched a billion likes”? For Vogue’s September cover girl, Kendall Jenner, it all started with a series of selfies. “I remember being 13 [or] 14 and making the funniest little book for my mom of photos of me that I took,” Jenner recounts via phone to Vogue Bookings Director Helena Suric. “I was like, ‘I want to be a model and you need to help me.’ ” A week later, Jenner was signed by an agency, and the rest is history.
While Jenner may be leading the pack of social media–savvy models using Instagram to carve out their futures, she’s also quick to pay tribute to the trailblazers who came before her: “It’s just so impressive to me that models like Cindy and Linda and Christy and Naomi—they didn’t have what I have today to connect with fans, but they still had that connection with a photo.” Of course, it never hurts to consider a new and different perspective, or in Jenner’s case, an older lens. “I use an old vintage film camera and it takes some amazing, authentic photos,” Jenner says of her go-to equipment. To make sure you’re keeping up with Kendall Jenner, tune into the latest installment of the Vogue podcast, now.

The Vogue September issue runs roughly 800 pages, but there’s always a behind-the-scenes story or two that are left untold. Enter Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour and Vogue Fashion Director Tonne Goodman. This week, Wintour and Goodman discuss the making of the magazine and this month’s cover girl, Kendall Jenner. “In a way, her chameleonlike abilities remind me of the great Linda Evangelista in that she can take on all of these different characters,” Wintour says of Jenner. “And that’s really what Tonne Goodman so successfully achieved in this shoot with Mert [Alas] and Marcus [Piggott] in September.” Jenner’s breakout beauty look didn’t hurt either. “She said, ‘You know, I would love to change something—I’d love to cut my hair,’” Goodman recalls of the spontaneous on-set chop, which came courtesy of editorial whiz Garren. Of course, Jenner is already the face that launched a billion likes, but as Goodman reveals, her mother, Kris, was somewhat wary of her similarly fresh makeup look. “She raised an eyebrow, I have to say, but she walked away feeling completely comfortable,” Goodman says of their conversation at the photo shoot, before pointing out that it’s really the clothes that do the talking. “It speaks to what fashion is today because of the variety and the different personalities are really there for the picking,” Goodman says. “These are for you!” To hear the full story on the September issue—including the features with Victoria Beckham, Christopher Bailey, and Huma Abedin, to name a few—tune in to the newest installment of the Vogue podcast now.

“This is fascinating history—you’re a gold mine!” So says André Leon Talley in the latest episode of the Vogue podcast. This week Talley digs deep with Lynn Wyatt, the legendary Texan socialite and world-renowned collector of couture (yes, that’s a thing). Here, she shares stories that will knock your socks off, or, in Wyatt’s case, Tom Ford stilettos. From fittings with Coco Chanel to parties with Grace Kelly—and one where they both showed up in the same Christian Dior outfit—you have to hear it to believe it.

How does one become Joseph Altuzarra? In the latest episode of the Vogue podcast, the French-born designer tells Vogue Fashion News Director, Mark Holgate the formula was as simple as alphabetical order. “When I graduated, I sent my résumé to Marc Jacobs,” Altuzarra says of what would become his first big break in the fashion industry. “An intern, I guess, had been asked to alphabetize the résumés and so mine was on the top of the pile so I was the first one they called and I was available so they just stopped there.” While Altuzarra goes on to detail the great many design lessons he learned as an intern for Jacobs, the 2011 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winner also recalls a valuable piece of advice Holgate gave him early on in his career trajectory. “You said, ‘It’s good to make mistakes. You shouldn’t be afraid to do something,’ and, actually, Anna [Wintour] sort of reiterated that the last time I saw her: ‘It’s okay if it’s not always perfect and it’s okay if you have an idea that sort of falls flat. It’s fine. Because you’re trying [and] you’re doing something new.’ ” Tune in to get the full story on Altuzarra, from A to Z.

“When I was in junior high school I used to sit and doodle all day in class, and one of the things that I doodled was, in fact, the logo—the MK logo—that we have now, so at 14, I kind of think I knew what I was getting into,” says Michael Kors in the latest installment of the Vogue podcast. The legendary all-American designer sat down with André Leon Talley to talk about the phenomenon that is the MK logo bag and the transformative power of accessorizing, particularly when it’s equal parts polished and practical. Case in point: The new ultra-chic Michael Kors smartwatch out this September. “It actually helps your life function,” explains Kors. “But at the same time, it gives you that punctuation point that I think people expect and want when they put on a great accessory.” While Kors’s timepiece will help its wearers stay on schedule in style, the designer’s upcoming fragrance, Wonderlust, is meant to lend an air of spontaneity. “It’s all about this idea that you’re still optimistic, you’re still energized, and you know what? You’re up for anything.”

Vogue Bookings Director Helena Suric is back for the second round of our new monthly model series, and this installment features Gigi Hadid. Fresh off the heels of Hadid’s first American Vogue cover (on stands now), Suric rang up the supermodel to discuss what it was like starring in the August issue almost two years after Hadid recreated Anna Wintour’s first Vogue cover. “I’m so grateful and honored, and it’s brought me to tears many times this week,” Hadid admits. After Hadid reveals her motto is to, “Be kind, work hard, and make a friend,” Suric wonders what it’s like having been captured in front of the camera alongside her closest confidants, from a romantic Naples getaway with boyfriend Zayn Malik to a high-tech trip to Silicon Valley with best friend Kendall Jenner. “I think what Anna [Wintour]’s amazing at is putting people in situations on set that will bring out natural storylines and therefore make incredible photos,” Hadid explains. In addition to how she has used social media as a platform to stand up to online body shamers, Hadid and Suric discuss the modeling industry’s Insta-famous phenomenon. “It’s a way that people get to know us other than a face on a page,” Hadid says. On that note, tune in to hear the full conversation capturing an intimate side of Hadid that’s perhaps less storied.

Rodney Mullen is considered the greatest freestyle skater in the history of the sport, and the person whose tricks have come to define modern skateboarding for nearly 40 years. He is also an inventor, entrepreneur, and public intellectual favored by TED and Silicon Valley visionaries. This week sees the premiere of Liminal, an extraordinary new work by Mullen, shot in photographer Steven Sebring’s pathbreaking 360-dome and scored by Dhani Harrison. It is Mullen’s first full footage release since 2004, and a momentous moment in the history of the sport. In this podcast he talks to Vogue’s Creative Digital Director Sally Singer about how this piece came about—his radical remaking of his body and his stance; the experience of working in the confines of a dome—and why he chose to debut it on Vogue.com.

In honor of the Fourth of July holiday, we’re bringing you this week’s podcast in two parts—and, fittingly, both are with the master of the swimsuit, Norma Kamali, who is also this year’s winner of the CFDA Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award. “You can make a wedding gown, you can hand-sew a garment, but making a swimsuit is a whole other psychology,” Kamali says. “It’s so much more about what’s not covered than what’s covered.” One thing is for certain, we’ve got your answer to any beach day boredom covered, with the first installment of the series, here.

Want more models? Well, lucky for you, that’s not such a tall order. Starting this week, we’re dedicating one podcast a month to all things models, as Vogue Bookings Director Helena Suric will be interviewing catwalkers past, present, and future to discuss the industry, their best moments in the pages of the magazine, and their passion projects, too. First up is Cameron Russell, and fittingly, the model and activist takes us back to the beginning, including just how little she knew about the business before she made it big. “I was in a bookstore and there was a Vogue with Kate Moss on the cover,” she says. “I thought, ‘Hmm, Kate Moss, what does she do? Let me open up the pages.’” Now, having covered multiple international editions of Vogue herself, Russell talks to Suric about using her notoriety and presence on social media as a platform to bring awareness to important environmental issues such as sustainability and climate change—the latter of which she also wrote about for Vogue.com in a feature titled “Climate Warriors.” While Russell interviewed women on the front lines of the war against global warming, she put her journalism skills to use again in the new episode, asking Suric a rapid-fire round of questions: What is the best thing about working at Vogue? Does Suric “freak out” about getting dressed in the morning? Who sported the most amazing outfit she’s ever seen in the hallways at Vogue? Tune in to hear the answers to these and much, much more.

Just days after Anna Wintour swapped lives with Amy Schumer for the Vogue original short in honor of the July issue, our Editor in Chief seemed to be taking cues from the cover girl who, in Wintour’s words, tells it like it is. “It was Amy who came up with the idea,” says Wintour during the latest installment of the Vogue podcast. “She talked to me about how she gets up kind of late, then walks around the New York streets thinking about her skits, and then maybe she has a scone, then she goes to the Comedy Cellar and performs—I’m sure brilliantly—and then, to be honest, she then said she goes home and has sex with her boyfriend. So I agreed to do all of that except the last part.”
Echoing a similar chord is Vogue Fashion Director Tonne Goodman who reveals that the theme of the photoshoot, too, was a day in the life of Amy Schumer, according to Vogue. “She normally would not be in an extravagant, down-feather, quilted Alexander McQueen something,” says Goodman of the look Schumer is seen donning on her tour bus. “But here she is.” Tune in to hear more from the new episode which is certainly something.

In the latest installment of the Vogue podcast, Vogue Executive Director of Communications Hildy Kuryk and Vogue Senior Editor Taylor Antrim catch up with two reporters following Hillary Clinton on the 2016 presidential campaign trail: Amy Chozick, a national political reporter at The New York Times, and Annie Karni, a political reporter at Politico. The conversation comes shortly after the release of the Vogue June issue featuring Chozick and Karni in Irina Aleksander’s coverage of the changing demographics of campaign reporters, namely, the increasing number of female journalists. Although Chozick and Karni discuss the significance of this shift, they also got to talking about Clinton’s relationship to reporters now in comparison to the 2008 presidential campaign, the obstacles they think Clinton will face in the run-up to the election, and the critical differences between Clinton and Donald Trump, for example, the pressures as a woman to constantly look presentable. “Women [have to] work harder and look presentable when men can just roll out of bed,” says Chozick.
Chozick and Karni also sound off on what it’s like reporting on the topic for an extended period of time. “What’s nice about having a beat is that the Clintons have perhaps the most vast political network of any family perhaps since the Kennedys,” says Chozick. “Literally, Bill Clinton’s kindergarten friends are some of my sources.” While Chozick is careful not to reveal the names of these sources, she and Karni had plenty to say on the current state of the presidential race and more—tune in to hear the full story.

Tonight Alessandro Michele, the creative director of Gucci, will receive the International Award at the CFDA Fashion Awards here in New York. This recognition is perhaps all the more fitting considering the jet-setting Michele just took the Italian fashion house across the pond to present its Resort 2017 collection at the storied Westminster Abbey. After the show and in advance of the ceremony, Michele rang up Vogue.com Fashion News Director Chioma Nnadi from London. Here, they discuss why he was drawn to the British landmark, how it feels to be winning the award in the Big Apple, and what it’s like to be one of the most Googled designers on the planet (along with his tips for staying grounded).

“An artist spends their whole life trying to get back to the place where their heart was first opened up,” says Leslie Odom, Jr. of one of his all-time favorite quotes. “Rent opened my heart up and Hamilton put me right back in that place.” The actor, who has been nominated for a Tony for his role in the smash hip-hop musical hit, talks to André Leon Talley about making his big Broadway debut in Rent at the ripe young age of 17 and the similarities between the two shows, specifically, the rebellious nature. “I think there was something about it that must have seemed to me like something that my parents wouldn’t have liked,” reveals Odom, Jr. “I didn’t want to pay rent either when I turned 21.”
While Odom, Jr., admits to having a few hangups with authority as an adolescent, he also talks about how his mother influenced his decision to take a beat from the stage in order to go to college, plus the wise words of advice he received from his now-father-in-law that kept him from quitting the business. To that end, take it from us when we say, you’ll want to tune in to hear this and more.

How does one become Erdem? Through either nature or nurture, Erdem Moralioglu has always been interested in style, citing Yves Saint Laurent couture shows as one of his earliest influences. “As a child, I . . . was so hungry for anything related to fashion,” says Moralioglu. Here, the Canadian-born, London-based designer shares his own recipe for success, of which included stints interning for the likes of Vivienne Westwood and Diane von Furstenberg, as well as the cherry on top of it all: “The most wonderful thing as a designer is to see your work being worn by extraordinary, amazing, intelligent women,” he says. Moralioglu cites actresses Keira Knightley and Lena Dunham by name, but not without gracing André Leon Talley with a story about mutual friend and recent dinner companion Lynn Wyatt.

It’s been said that Kim Kardashian West and husband Kanye’s coordinating couple’s style is something of an art form, but according to André Leon Talley, it was the rapper turned designer’s shredded denim moment at the 2016 Met Gala that recalled artist Andy Warhol. “I applaud [Kanye West] for taking that freedom and that bravery and courage to wear jeans,” says Talley in the latest installment of the Vogue podcast. “If Andy Warhol had come to the Met in 2016 he would have worn jeans—he wore jeans everywhere. I worked for him; I knew him personally. He wore jeans with his tuxedo, he wore jeans to the Vatican, he wore jeans to the most important houses in Paris.”
Fresh off the “Manus x Machina” red carpet, Talley sits down with Vogue.com Style Editor Edward Barsamian and Vogue Executive Director of Communications Hildy Kuryk to discuss this and other defining style moments from fashion’s biggest night.

“We thought that we could take Taylor [Swift], who is a beautiful, beautiful girl, but has been a little bit more conservative in her fashion choices, and turn her into a Hedi Slimane rock ’n’ roll girl,” says Anna Wintour of the new May Vogue, also known as the Met Issue, featuring a decidedly edgier Swift. A mere few weeks away, Met Gala fever is in full swing, and even André Leon Talley can’t help but press Wintour on the star styles to come, specifically that of the cover girl and cochair. “Having seen the sketches, I think she’s going to look fantastic,” revealed Wintour.

When Rossi wasn’t meeting Wintour at her Manhattan townhouse for 6:15 a.m. call times en route to the museum, he was filming Karl Lagerfeld at Coco Chanel’s legendary Paris apartment. “He immediately asked for a Diet Coke, which his butler gave him,” revealed Rossi.
