VOGOFF June 2013 Hot Off the Press

It's finished - VOGOFF June 2013, all 56 pages. And I have uploaded four, count 'em, four ways you can read it. You can read it on Scribd, where I put up the first VOGOFF issue, but because this time the font looked squiggy on one of my computers (fine on the other!) and because I was unable to view the magazine in a two-up layout, which is how I designed it, I also opened a whole new VOGOFF website where you can view VOGOFF with your choice of non-jiggy-fonted pdf OR full-sized jpegs OR as small jpegs in a photo gallery. WHEW! Clicking the cover below also takes you to the new VOGOFF website.


Doesn't Shelley of Forest City Fashionista look incredible as the cover girl? I thought this photo she sent in encapsulated everything that VOGOFF stands for. Thanks Shelley! This will be a surprise for you. And there are many other amazing photos and articles inside as well courtesy of your talents.

If you don't see your submission in this issue, please don't be discouraged! I was inundated with excellent contributions and the decisions about what to put in were extremely difficult, but I hope you will try again for the next VOGOFF, whenever that may be.

Okay, and so I lied - I wasn't able to get out and visit everyone last week like I had hoped. VOGOFF just ate up my time, but now that it's out I can get on with my 3D life.


That's me from a shoot I did a few days ago for VOGOFF, just to give you an idea... Yes, I AM allowed to submit past the deadline because I have to put up with Miz Bagg! I shall be including this for Visible Monday. Although I didn't wear this outside on my inspiration walk, this shoe-o-clava headwear was pretty cool (I ruined my already-ruined tights to make it), and I want to share it with you at Patti's party at Not Dead Yet Style. Don't give me too many drinks because this shoe-on-the-head-look is tricky to walk in. Now my shoe is a body passenger - if that makes sense.

Secrets of the stars: You can see the gusset of the tights just near my ear. BWA-HA-HA. But it's our secret!  See?- you never know what those tricky magazine people are up to...

Thanks again, everyone, for your awesome support of VOGOFF! I hope that one of these four viewing methods works for you. And yes, I swear, your Honour, now I AM telling the truth - I shall be making my rounds with joy and a big laugh.

  1. I sure must use Google translate to help and browse the VOGOFF magazine. The cover is delightful (of course!) and your shoe headpiece is as good as Rossy De Palma's! Are you a bit of the 2013's Andy Warhol?

  2. Love the cover - OTT excellence! - and your shoe-o-clava creates a marvellously aerodynamic silhouette. I can't wait another minute, I'm dashing off to read the whole thing - bravo!!!

  5. Fuck me! I know you don't really care for too many expletives, Mel, but seriously, what else can I say?! It's brilliant. All the contributors are just amazing, and the work and time you must have put into producing this edition is astonishing.
    I'm off for another look, I can't take in all the fabulousness!
    You're a genuis! xxxx

  19. Whatever it is, quit your day job. Now. Oh no, actually don't because you're an incredible artist. But how do you manage to create this delicious, succulent, stunning work of journalistic genius? Because you, my darling star editor, are a living, breathing work of art yourself!!!!!! Thank you so, so much for this utter filth and wickedness - I NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED this in my life!!!!!!!! Encore!!!!! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

  20. Me again - I had to have dinner with my mother, after sniggering about seeing Clemetine's CLIT. The whole of VOGOFF is just brilliant - I will read it again and again, and I am already ordering air and a lack of furniture from Simple.Nothing. It's worth the cost.

    I can't thank you enough for including me - I love my dumpster!

  21. Jaysus! It's a blinking triumph! I can't wait to sit down and devour the lot, you feckin' genius!
    Bet Anna Wintour's shaking in her beige shoes. xxxx

  22. Ooh I'm looking forward to this Melanie, I might have to save it for later when I have time to sit and savour each page, and Shelly does look fantastic, as do you in your shoe! xx

  23. I love Vogoff so much my face hurts from smiling. The Empress's new clothes indeed! And your makeup is divine too.

  24. Another cracking corker of a Vogoff, you're a genius Melanie! Totally hilarious and brilliant. Well done to all the ladies featured.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I was meant to be doing revision for my exams, but was pleasantly sidetracked by this absolute delight of an issue. Between the Cindy Sherman-esque get-ups, Vix's GENIUS bikini (was sitting in my room giggling away over that one) and the fact that nearly all VOGOFF women own a sword, this really could not be any better. This isn't just a breath of fresh air, but a gale force riposte to commodified fashion - instead full of creativity, hilarity and some bloody fabulous clothes.

  26. Vogoff is an endless source of glamour, inspiration and beauty, everyone was so creative and fabulous, I haven't any words to comment and after all who am I to judge the best magazine online!!!
    Great work!!!
    Love xxxxxxxxxxx

  39. Hello! Right, I'm sorry I didn't reply to your email but I was just packing to go home from my holiday. Again I wanted to do something for you but ran out of ideas and places to go... sob sob, but everything that you put in the mag is just perfect. I adore your editorials, Curtise, Vix, Shelley and Hollie is bloody amazing, she looks like something out of Vice. Do you have that magazine? A supreme effort, I adore it xxxx
