Love overhearing gossip. Sometimes you can’t help hearing when people manage to talk at the top of their lungs, broadcasting their news to the whole office. Do we care if you’re date was horrible last night, or your boyfriend would rather spend your only free night playing basketball with the boys?
Anyway, I heard something intriguing in the last few days. Please take note of the following international magazine covers to take note of:
- US Harper’s Bazaar with Julianne Moore and Demi Moore
- US Vogue with Gwyneth Paltrow
- UK Vogue with Victoria Beckham
- US Glamour with Fergie
- UK Glamour with Gwyneth Paltrow
- W with Cameron Diaz
You may be seeing those cover images on newsstands near you with some cover line changes or in the pages of the magazines with the same interview word for word. So don’t go reading those articles in Borders on your lunch break if you don’t want to see it again in an Australian magazine.
As for other gossip, this was sent in:
Overhearing two mag gals discussing the art of climbing the career ladder, was enough to prick my ears up. One gal was discussing how to get ahead in this business and the best way to do it was to suck up to the advertising director (yes not all the fun is on the editorial side), be nice to your national advertising director, whilst undermining them and let your underlings think you are a goddess – they act as your personal free advertising/pr machine.
An example was offered on how knocking out her competition had been done (through tears, stories of not being accepted and grovelling to a certain intelligent and academic advertising director that fell hook, line and sinker and is still none the wiser that she had had one put over her – even though they no longer work together, but wants her back on her team) and to top it all off get into the social pages (she wasn’t very happy with her recent shots). Wish I had seen who they were – what an interesting conversation.
Juicy… was that YOU gossiping?
