ELLE Goes 'Green' for May


NEW YORK -- ELLE has tapped leading environmental activist Laurie David, founder of the "Stop Global Warming Virtual March" and trustee of the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), to be the guest editor of its first Green Issue, hitting newsstands April 18.

Timed to coincide with Earth Day 2006, the issue will be printed entirely on recycled paper.

"Since our first interview with Laurie David in April 2004, we've seen how concern for the environment is influencing everything we cover at ELLE, be it fashion, beauty, lifestyle, politics, or culture," said Roberta Myers, editor-in-chief.

In collaboration with Laurie David, the editorial team has devoted the issue to the subject of the environment. Editorial contributors will include Eugene Linden, Yale University's 2001 Poynter Fellow for his work in environmental journalism and author of "The Winds of Change: Climate, Weather and the Destruction of Civilizations" on the greening of politics and Mindy Pennebacker (author, editor of "The Green Guide") on fast and simple ways for readers to green-up their home.

In addition, the magazine features interviews with eco-leaders such as Robert Kennedy, Jr. (Waterkeeper Alliance, NRDC attorney), Tensie Whelan (Rainforest Alliance), Majora Carter (Sustainable South Bronx), and others.

"I am delighted to be guest-editing ELLE's first environmentally focused issue," said David. "I salute the magazine's leadership in acknowledging that the environment affects all of us-it is not something you drive to; it is the air we breathe and the water we drink. It is up to all of us to do our part to protect it."

In the fashion well, international creative director Gilles Bensimon will turn his lens on eco-style with beauties such as supermodel Carolyn Murphy, actress Evangeline Lilly, actress Amy Smart, and others, while fashion director Nina Garcia and her team scour the globe for the best of green fashion.

Beauty editor Emily Dougherty will give a definitive look at the healing power of eco-ingredients, while Miranda Purves' Living section surveys green restaurants across the country and discusses how we can all entertain with eco-consciousness.

so I guess Carolyn Murphy, Evangeline Lilly, and Amy Smart have eds?

"America's Next Top Model" Winner Nicole:


.





Talk about milestones: Recent America's Next Top Model winner Nicole Linketter's first trip to France coincided with her first shoot for ELLE and also her first time wearing couture. Hardly one to let a few successes go to her head, Linkletter, 20, took breaks from the ELLE photo session to go be a small-town girl seeing the sights of Paris: the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre -- "all the touristy stuff," as she puts it. Back on the set, she loved trying on the beautiful couture clothing, especially Chanel's pale pink gwn and Dior Haute Couture by John Galliano's outrageous pantsuit. The North Fork, North Dakota, native has been on the fast track ever since waiting in line outside the Mall of America for "hours" last April to try out for America's Next Top Model. She made the show and had a wonderful time on it, although she wishes more people would understand that "reality television is not reality." For instance, she admits that hte drama gets amped up by the video cameras, like when she had a fight with her younger sister on the telephone. There's clearly something about relaity TV that makes people more emotional, though she wouldn't define it as acting per se. "You are still yourself," she says, "but you're in a situation you would never be in in actual life." Having survived living in a house with 12 other aspiriing models and "being videotaped even when sleeping," Linkletter is now ready to concentrate on her career. In the future, the buddind star hopes to have the oportunity to be like one of her industry heroes, Tyra Banks -- who she describes as "not just a model, but a role model." We wish her all the luck.

I like the editorials with the exception of Shakira, it's impossible to pull off some trends with her because her looks aren't original or unique.
