We’re only three days into LOVE’s annual advent calendar, but the the question still looms, “Where’s Miley?”
The British model exacts the best revenge on her soon-to-be ex husband: looking absolutely amazing in an absolutely naked photo spread for Love Magazine.
“Kate Cleans Up” reads the boldfaced coverline on Kate Moss‘ just-released cover for LOVE‘s Spring/Summer 2013 issue short by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. And indeed! The model is lying down in a bathtub, slightly sudsy and half-immersed in the bright blue water. But what’s that on her t-shirt?
We’re glad to see that model of the moment Cara Delevingne is making a serious face on the cover of LOVE‘s “Clean” issue, if only because we were starting to get worried that she was proving the old adage “don’t cross your eyes or they’ll stay that way” true.
Fashion loves bunnies almost as much as the internet loves cats. So, in the sprit of Easter, LOVE magazine has put together some racy holiday-themed videos featuring Kate Upton as Peter Cottontail and Doutzen Kroes as Jessica Rabbit.
Fashion world crushes come and go, but our unapologetic love for stylist and LOVE magazine editrix Katie Grand will probably never die. And that’s because in addition to working on a new exhibit for Louis Vuitton and advising lots of famous people on their wardrobe choices, she still has time to produce a stellar magazine.
There are no shortage of people out there for whom Victoria’s Secret model Doutzen Kroes, dancing and undressing to Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’, would be the perfect gift. And thanks to Love magazine’s virtual advent calendar, today’s gift is just that.
This was the week we saw Karl Lagerfeld without his signature shades. Frightening! This week was also Shark Week. A whole lot of crimes of fashion were committed — and we’re not just talking about Kate and Prince William‘s matching outfits. Plus, a 10-year-old model ignited a firestorm of industry controversy.
We’ve taken issue with fashion ads and editorials that glorify violence but this Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott-lensed editorial for LOVE magazine’s seriously stacked “supernatural” issue takes morbid themes to a whole new level. The photos are beautiful, but in a haunting, terrifying, and seriously creepy way.
We’ve been crushing hard on the newest set of LOVE covers, and we know what the remaining three will look like!
This week Kate Moss got the Carrie Bradshaw treatment and Kate Middleton wore a floral pancake hat. LOVE Magazine totally ruled, plus-size model secrets were exposed, and Rachel Zoe‘s baby son got us all envious. Also, OMFG Mariah Carey.
First came Elle’s, then came Chloe’s, and now we have 14-year-old Hailee Steinfeld’s supernatural Love cover and, just like the others, she’s crying. She’s also wearing a crown, lace gloves, and the most gorgeous bracelets we’ve ever seen.
Elle Fanning remains the coolest tween we know (er, wish we knew), and her latest cover only furthers our case.
Lea T isn’t the only one who got a solo cover out of her LOVE shoot. In addition to the gender-bending kiss cover, Lea’s cover and Bieber’s cover, there is also a Kate Moss cover for LOVE‘s androgyny issue.
In a year when the best advice anyone could give about anything was “Do the best you can with less,” fashion magazines — the smart ones, anyway — seemed to respond in kind. White space, nudity, and faces (and bodies) rather than full-on fashion dominated the best magazine covers of 2010, and we’ve assembled a group of 15 books we think did it best.
Last week, we showed you what a year’s worth of Vogue magazines would look like if you layered them on top of one another. Now, you can see what Interview, i-D, Love, V, and W would look like if you did the same. And just so you know, the answer is: very, very cool.
Some loudmouth at Conde Nast told our friends at Fashionista that Canadian pop diva Justin Bieber will grace the next cover of Love Magazine. Let it be known that we feel weird saying a teenage boy will grace anything, but that this one looks enough like a woman for it to be kind of OK. But honestly, it’s not the person who’s on the cover of Love that has us concerned so much as what that person is wearing, and a lot of Love covers have featured little to no clothing at all.
Over the last several years, we have come to the decision that when we grow up, we want to be just like Katie Grand. For those who have yet to be initiated into the cult of her fandom, let us explain — she’s probably fashion’s coolest editor. And the fourth issue of Love magazine proves that.
For some reason, what Isabel Marant said to Love magazine about hating fashion and hating consumers and hating famous women just didn’t sit well with us. We wonder why.
