Print magazines have been having a pretty rough year, but by our lights, the glossy-pic-and-glossy-ad formula still has some life left in it. Especially if you’ve got an iPhone.
A high-fashion aggregator called Distilljust launched their third issue and their first foray into the world of mobile magazining, currently available for a comparatively steep $5 in the iTunes shop. Inside, you’ll find a bundle of editorial wisdom drawn from magazines like Vice, Interview and Acne Paper, along with ads from Swatch, who’s footing the bill. The business side is still a little bit murky, but if it pays off, you may be getting a lot more of your style wisdom on the go.
Of course, we’ll always have a sentimental weakness for blogs…
Though we haven't reviewed the mag in its entirety, the outlook is good for the Style Guy's first fully revamped issue of *Interview* (September), which is about to hit newsstands. We should have known Ye Olde O'Brien would make things a lot more interesting.

Because what's the good of being editor if you can't grab all the plum assignments for yourself?
The trademark leer, the thumbs up, her rather addled expression - we have to ask: is the prince of pervy photogs getting his hooks into *Top Chef* temptress Padma Lakshmi? We spotted the unlikely pair looking cozy at Interview magazine's party celebrating the soon-to-be-extinct Polaroid at Delicatessen the other night.
