So sorry for the lack of posts over here…it mostly had to do with me being sick as a dog for over 2 weeks, with the weirdest cold I’ve ever had, that morphed its symptoms every 4 days, and started off with a 102 degree fever and yellow pus coming out of my eyeballs. Okay, TMI. But watch out for that cold – it’s a bad one!
Though I’m still teetering on the edge of “almost well but could definitely relapse any moment,” I wanted to at least share these advance images from V Magazine issue #60 – The Beauty Issue with you guys. (Yes, it’s been in my inbox since July 1st…I’m really sorry I’m just getting to it now.) Anyhoo, for all my lovely Chic Steals readers… (more after the jump…)
The new issue does not hit newsstands until July 7th, but here is a first glimpse at one of V’s inside spreads of “Donatella After Dark” (above).
The queen of evening glamour has never shed away from making a statement – in her work or her personal style. For women who want to embody the fearless VERSACE spirit this season, there’s no shortage of ways to do it.

And here are two advance shots of the male models, Ludwig and Matt, in the V Magazine “Eight Portraits” beauty portfolio photographed by David Sims.
Love the second dude’s hair…there’s a certain twinkiness I’m going to try to replicate with my own hair style tomorrow…and probably utterly fail.
Viva la spike!

I’m loving the femme fatale vibe to this shoot…and am itching to get my hands on a copy since that designer list is like a dossier of my faves. How about you guys – what do you think?
