Cover Confidential

March 20th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Feburary and March are big business for fashion magazines with glossies often debuting some of their best and brightest content during these months focused on spring collections, renewal and change. Take a look back at some of the most interesting covers from the boundlessly creative, to the simply beautiful.

PURE BEAUTY

Antidote Magazine‘s romance issue boasted multiple covers by Cuneyt Akeroglu featuring some of the world’s most beautiful women. United by their simple yet effective photography and their chic take on the magazine’s pristine subjects these covers were something special.

As one of fashion’s coolest faces Leona Binx Walton is typically photographed looking grungy, avant garde or off-kilter. Her Self Service cover with it’s effective beauty statement and clean layout showed another side. Collier Schorr portrait brings out Binx’s beauty, while maintaining her character.

THE BEST OF CELEBRITY

There are few actresses as effervescent as Marion Cotillard and Interview Magazine‘s March cover captured the La Vie En Rose star’s elegant side with a shot by Craig McDean that positively crackles with good ol’ fashioned glamour. Styled by Karl Templer with makeup by Christophe Danchaud and a 40s coif by Sam McKnight the image strikes the right balance between retro film siren and modern glamour - as does the accompanying fashion story. 

On the flip side, Dazed & Confused‘s rough and tumble cover of Scarlett Johansson finds the star’s inner bad girl and brings it to the forefront with a vibrant shot by Benjamin Alexander Huseby . The combo of red background and Saint Laurent biker jacket and Scar-Jo’s glare makes for an appealing contrast to the typical smiling celebrity glamour shot.

MINIMAL MARVELS

You can’t go wrong with a picture of Daria Werbowy and The Last Magazine served up an epic large format image the superstar looking foreboding for it’s spring issue –  Mikael Jansson‘s in your face shot captures Werbowy at her rawest and best.

The Gentlewoman always errs on the side of minimalism, but the pulpy red cover of Vivienne Westwood by Alasdair McLellan (Art Partner) was the perfect merger of timelessness and modernity.

CREATIVITY RULES

Nick Knight‘s trippy photography has always struck a chord with surrealists and on the cover of GARAGE‘s spring/summer edition he twists and morphs Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevingne into unbidden creatures designs that were eventually tattooed onto the skin of Garage readers – how’s that for taking things to the next level.

E.T. got a fashion makeover with Lindsey Wixson taking over the frontpage of CR Fashion Book with an expressive Sebastian Faena image that puts Wixson’s otherworldly visage to good use with a sweet nod to an 80s favorite.

DESIGNER DOMINATION

Karl Lagerfeld’s watercolor inspired spring Chanel collection has proved a hit with editors, in addition to appearing in the pages of just about every magazine imaginable his paint by numbers dresses found themselves on a variety of covers in March, most notably Vogue China, where two of the designer’s creations took center stage.

Not one to be outdone, Miuccia Prada also made a strong showing this March (and April) with a variety of painterly spring looks from her collections showing up on the cover of several different magazines.

You can’t keep a good woman down! On the heels of her March Vogue Paris cover Lara Stone is suddenly everywhere with a series of chic magazine appearances and the first of her advertisements for mega-brand L’Oreal.


Antidote Magazine Ph. Cuneyt Akeroglu

The first cover of Antidote’s Romance issue features a stripped down portrait of Lara by Cuneyt Akeroglu.

L’Oreal Paris Ph. Kenneth Willardt (Exposure NY)

Beauty contracts a big business and Lara brings a touch of haute grandeur to L’Oreal’s spring advertising, joining the likes of Doutzen and Liya Kebede in Kenneth Willardt (Exposure NY)’s flawless beauty photographs. Adding a swipe of the latest lipgloss might not transform you into a mini-Lara but Willardt’s sleek ads are a compelling tribute to the brand’s ‘because you’re worth it’ tagline.

Modern Matter | Ph. Alasdair McLellan (Art Partner)

Modern Matters merges art and fashion into a singularly chic edition twice a year and the latest features an Alasdair McLellan (Art Partner) shot of Lara against timeless Piet Mondrian artwork in the De Stijl style.

First Look: Antidote’s Icons

May 3rd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Who are the modern modeling icons? Tough question, but Antidote Magazine offers their take on iconic women with 8 new covers featuring models from different generations who have made a fashion impact. Shot by Jan Welters, with creative direction by Yann Weber, the images are elegant and evocative, as is Welter’s corresponding video. Who doesn’t love a great shot of a beautiful girl in a white gown?

The cast selection is sure to stir up a fair amount of debate; no one can argue that Naomi Campbell, Eva Herzigova and Malgosia Bela aren’t iconic, but do you think relative newcomers Saskia de Brauw and Lindsey Wixson are worthy of the title? We already know some people are lobbying for Natasha Poly on the icons list, but how do you feel about the inclusion of the stunning Bianca Balti & Aymeline Valade?

Charlotte’s Web

November 14th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Capturing the essence of Charlotte Rampling is not an easy task. The cinema legend’s allure is all about subtlety: she’s sexy but never sleazy, aloof but never cold. Helmut Newton encapsulated all these attributes perfectly in his famous photos 70s of the iconic beauty and now Giampaolo Sgura pays tribute to those images in Antidote Magazine. The baby-faced Anna de Rijk might not be the first name you think of when it comes to seduction, but with her cascading dark hair and piercing blue eyes she pulls off the Rampling look nicely. Added bonus, Géraldine Saglio‘s styling focuses on silk stockings and sky high heels, keeping with Antidote’s shoe fetish theme.
