A still from Conde Nast's Fashion Hazard game.

Angry Birds, Temple Run, and Conde Nast is sticking their hands into the mobile gaming market with their new app, designed-to-be-addictive iPad and iPhone game, "Fashion Hazard." The game takes the user through the cutthroat world of modelling, starting from the fresh off the boat, bottom of the totem pole experience of the brand new model. Intended as a "girly" answer to those aforementioned action-filled games, using the same kinetic principals (tapping, tilting and swiping the screen to move through the levels) but with a fashion aesthetic and twist. The inspiration, according to Juliana Stock, the senior director of business and product development at Conde's Interactive Product Group, came from closer to home than just sharing a building with Anna Wintour. “My daughter was looking for a girly version of [Temple Run], but there really weren’t any,” Stock told AdWeek, “It sparked this inspiration that we should look into creating a more action, arcade-based game that would appeal to a feminine aesthetic.” Users start out as Ellie Redburn, an aspiring model from Kansas trying to work her way up to top model status, and guide her across runways rife with, well, hazards, such as other models, snakes, and cans of red paint but also with coins and additional challenges, like posing.

The Next Issue app puts all your favorite magazines at your fingertips.

Recently I was in the basement of a big house in the suburbs, poking around, and I noticed that every wall of the distinctly un-manly cave was lined with magazines. I was drawn towards the white spines like a dog to a bone, and when I got close enough, I realized that the person whose house it was (not telling who) had what appeared to be every single fashion magazine published since the 80's. I so badly wanted to flip through the pages, smell the perfume sample-y smell, but I held back. It wasn't my house after all.

Next Issue, a new app created out of a partnership between a company of the same name and publishers Conde Nast, Hearst, Meredith, News Corp., and Time Inc. is like a digital version of that Vogue and Glamour filled basement. For a flat monthly subscription price, users can read 39 of your favorite mags from their tablet or phone!

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
