Vs. Delivers 4 Big Time Covers, One Unexpected Photographer
Ellen von Unwerth, Guy Aroch, and Helena Christensen are three people we’re accustomed to seeing behind the lens for fashion magazines photographing pretty young things. Drew Barrymore, on the other hand, is usually the one mugging for the camera. Not this time, though!
The pregnant, just-wed Barrymore shot fellow actress Rachel McAdams for one of the four covers of Vs. magazine’s September issue (a magazine she herself covered back in 2009). We knew she was a multitalented kinda gal — let us not forget that Best Coast video she directed starring Chloë Moretz or her Shailene Woodley cover shoot earlier this year — but, being a September cover, this is probably her most high-profile lensing gig to date. While we’re not blown away by the image, it’s a solid effort, and it’s not as if she was short on competitition from the high-impact pairing of von Unwerth and Coco Rocha or the haunting gaze of a Wild Things-style Liv Tyler.
What do you think? Do Barrymore’s shutter skills measure up? Or should the actress consider sticking to her day job?
