The recent trajectory of Canadian star Taylor Kitsch’s career is testament to his staying power: after a duo of box office misfires, Kitsch has a series of upcoming movies that are sure to put dubious criticisms to rest. Known best for his role as Tim Riggins, the brooding running back in Friday Night Lights, Kitsch sprung to fame on the big screen for his role as fan favourite Gambit in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and as drug kingpin Chon in Oliver Stone’s Savages. Not one to dwell on his career’s more minor moments, Kitsch maintains that he will continue to choose roles in movies he cares about, regardless of the risk factor. Two such films he has slated for 2014 include The Normal Heart, which focuses on the early ‘80s HIV/AIDS crisis in New York City (costarring Mark Ruffalo and Julia Roberts), and Canadian comedy The Grand Seduction, in which Kitsch plays a big-city doctor who descends upon a Maritime village in order to secure a factory contract and save the town from financial ruin.

In an exclusive interview with Men’s FASHION, Kitsch opens up about upcoming films, his love of laying low in his adopted hometown of Austin, Texas, and his foray into a new side of moviemaking with his upcoming directorial debut.   Read more »

FASHION Magazine May 2014 cover: Lorde


Fashion Magazine May 2014 cover Lorde

Photographed by Chris Nicholls and styled by Zeina Esmail, Lorde wears a dress, price on request, and earrings, $1,465, both by Dolce & Gabbana/ Hair & makeup by Simone Otis foré Hair Care.

For Lorde’s first Canadian magazine cover, the 17-year-old Grammy-winner was exclusively photographed and interviewed for FASHION Magazine on a quick stop in Texas during her recent tour. Taking time out between her sold-out concert in Austin and another sold-out show in Houston (where the cover was shot), the New Zealand-born pop star—she’s the country’s biggest musical export to date—had only one major request: play songs from Morrissey during the entire shoot. After she posed with a mix of medieval, modern, Renaissance and Gothic pieces from this season’s top collections (Dolce & Gabbana and Valentino, to name a few), FASHION’s features editor, Elio Iannacci chatted with the artist moments before she conducted her sound check backstage at Houston’s Bayou Music Center.

Here’s a sneak peek at the story, which will hit newsstands on April 14, 2014. Read more »

FASHION Magazine April 2014 cover: Cobie Smulders

Cobie Smudlers Fashion Magazine April 2014 cover

Photographed by Chris Nicholls and Styled by George Antonopoulos, Cobie Smulders wears a dress, $3,200, by Etro, Chain, $470, and Shark Tooth, Price On Request, both by Jennifer Fisher, and Ring, $85, by Jenny Bird. Hair by Davy Newkirk For The Wall Group/Davines. Makeup by Jo Strettell for The Magnet Agency/Lancôme. Manicure by Lisa Postma For Fashion Assistant, Serena Duffin.

Known most for her role as Robin Scherbatsky—the token Canuck on TV’s How I Met Your Mother—Vancouver’s Cobie Smulders is one of those stars who comes off as a natural on and off the camera. Photographed during an emotional time when her widely successful sitcom was wrapping up its last episode (airing March 31), Smulders cleared her just-as busy film schedule (she has a couple of blockbusters on her plate, including a star turn in Captain America: The Winter Soldier) to pose for FASHION Magazine’s April 2014 issue and chat with features editor, Elio Iannacci. Here is a sneak peek at some of the things she talked about in her cover story—which arrives on newsstands on March 17. Read more »

FASHION Magazine February 2014 Cover: Lady Gaga


Fashion Magazine February 2014 Lady Gaga

Photography by Inez and Vindooh and styled by Brandon Maxwell, Lady Gaga wears a jacket, price on request, by Come des Garcons and glasses, price on request, by Early Halloween. Hair by Shay Ashaul by Tim Howard. Makeup by Yadim for Art Partner. Manicure by Jin Soon Choi for Jed Root.

It’s hard to believe that it’s only been five years since Lady Gaga released her first album, The Fame. The sheer number of images, hits and sound bites the 27-year-old has ushered into popular culture is uncanny. The New York native’s wardrobe choices have inspired lookalike fans and popularized collections from such designers as Jean Paul Gaultier and Hussein Chalayan. Her first fragrance, Fame, launched in 2012, sold six million bottles during its first week. University courses have analyzed her socio-political significance. She’s the only chart-topper to have used the word “transgendered” in a Billboard number one hit (2011’s “Born This Way”), and her 40 million-plus Twitter followers and 60 million Facebook fans have witnessed her fight for equal rights for women and the LGBT community. Last year, Time Magazine’s readers named her the second most influential person of the decade (beating out U.S. President Barack Obama). Unlike so many in her line of work, Gaga’s affection for fashion is not a flirtation.

Whether donning legendary labels, new technologies or message-based garments, the woman formerly known as Stefani Germanotta is a living, breathing canvas. Which is probably why Donatella Versace chose Gaga as the new face of her label. Before her upcoming world tour, Gaga sat down with FASHION‘s features editor Elio Iannacci to talk about her latest obsessions and her current album, Artpop. Here is a sneak peak of the exclusive interview in FASHION Magazine—which will hit newsstands on January 13, 2014.

FASHION Magazine Winter 2014 Cover: Courtney Love


Fashion Magazine Winter 2014 Courtney Love


Scheduling a photo shoot around Courtney Love’s schedule is no easy feat. The music and fashion icon was in the thick of writing her upcoming autobiography, recording her next album and sketching a spring collection for her clothing line, Never The Bride, when FASHION asked her to pose for the Winter 2014 issue. Love’s flurry of activity is all part of an ongoing comeback plan—one that is clearly winning over a number of fashion houses who have named her a major inspiration.

After wrapping up her cover shoot at Canoe Studios, FASHION’s features editor Elio Iannacci was invited to Love’s home in the New York’s West village to talk about her 30-year-plus career and her next batch of projects. Chatting in front of the same fireplace Hedi Slimane photographed Love in front of for Saint Laurent’s current ad campaign, the pair were surrounded by neat piles of books ranging from classic literature, philosophy and chick lit—titles including The Devil Wears Prada and Valley of The Dolls. Here is a sneak peek of our cover story, which hits newsstands nationwide on November 11, 2013.

In an industry where models come and go as quickly as trends, Daria Werbowy has managed to keep busy and relevant. Gracing FASHION’s cover for the ninth time, the Polish-born, Toronto-bred beauty brings her signature sizzle to the camera, sporting a Christopher Kane dress with the kind of freshness and energy that you typically see in a new name. At 29, she says she may feel as young as when she was first discovered but her whole outlook on life has changed considerably. Below, features editor Elio Iannacci offers a sneak peek at her cover story.

On her relationship with fashion and decor:
“Ever since I was in high school, I was interested in design. I kept changing my room around all the time. I think design has an important role in our surroundings, our personalities and our way of life.” Read more »

Between filming several major movies slated for release this fall—including Rush, which premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival in September—actress Olivia Wilde took time out of her hectic schedule to be photographed for FASHION’s September issue.

Photographed on a building rooftop amongst the striking high rises and waters towers of New York City—Wilde’s hometown—the 29-year-old actress poses in a feather and mesh dress by Gucci.

After a full day of shooting, Wilde spoke to features editor Elio Iannacci on her upcoming batch of films (including Third Person, which was written and directed by Canadian Paul Haggis and co-stars Mila Kunis and James Franco), her philanthropic work and her upcoming collaboration with fiancé Jason Sudeikis.
