Because magazine schedules make no sense, Vanity Fair‘s October issue drops September 1. And because Vanity Fair is pretty predictable, Angelina Jolie is the cover girl.
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!
Elle Fanning remains the coolest tween we know (er, wish we knew), and her latest cover only furthers our case.
When we learned Naomi Campbell was set to appear in Givenchy’s fall campaign, we were curious. When we heard last week that she’d be roaring in the ads and looking like a “dark ’50s pinup girl”, we just got downright excited. So here it is, the first look at Givenchy’s fall campaign, but really, who’s looking at the clothes?
Kate Moss‘ full spread for Vogue Paris‘ May issue is here in all its technicolor glory. At first the images seemed strangely varied, veering from softly romantic black and whites to primary colored punk-inspired get ups and we wondered where Emmanuelle Alt was going with it. And then we realized that while the photographs certainly showcase the (amazing!) clothing, the spread, more than anything else, showcases Moss.
The trend (because it is a trend, unfortunately) of putting Asian models in your advertising and your couture shows and your magazine spreads is a welcome change from the whitewashed fashion photography and casting of yesteryear. But is it enough simply to evoke whatever feeling you think the East evokes in order to claim diversity? Apparently it is. Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott created this spread for Interview Magazine called China Girls. And there’s only one Chinese girl in it.
Because the world needed to be reminded that beautiful things happen outside of New York Fashion Week, Dolce and Gabbana cast Naomi Campbell for the new installment of its Animalier eyewear campaign. The pictures were taken by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, and they’re stunning. And we mean stunning.
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.
We adored the first version of Lea T‘s LOVE cover — the one where she was kissing Kate Moss. The gender play was a perfect fit for the mag’s androgyny issue, and the photo was stunning. Now it looks like Lea was also given a solo cover (à la Justin Bieber). Not surprisingly, she looks great.
