Models on the cover of American Vogue?! They said it couldn’t be done, but the new supers have taken the front page for September and provide a thrilling respite from the usual with a multi-girl cover filled with smiles and sparkling gowns. Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss lead the pack on the main cover looking exceptional in Mario Testino (Art Partner)’s upbeat cover shot. On the inside the next generation of beauties takes center stage with Arizona Muse, Edie Campbell, Imaan Hammam, Fei Fei Sun, Vanessa Axente, and Andreea Diaconu serving as Vogue’s latest lineup of stars. As with any high profile cover there is sure to be debate over who is and isn’t included in the line up – are you pleased with Vogue’s September selection, or are their other faces who you’d like to see on the cover as well? Sound off in the comments!

September Reign

July 30th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

By now we’ve all heard the story about celebrities taking precious magazine cover spots away from models, but this September it appears the tides have turned. After years of stars on the front pages more and more magazines are looking to models for their biggest fashion issues. British Vogue boasts Cara Delevingne looking sleek in Nicolas Ghesquière‘s collection for Louis Vuitton in an image by Mario Testino (Art Partner), while Elle UK enlists a Prada clad Kate Upton for fashion forward shot by Matt Jones. Though the September covers are only just starting to debut you can already see which collections are going to be inecapable for the next few months.  WSJ provides a fetching seventies style image of Daria Werbowy by Josh Olins that also puts Ghesquière’s wares to good use. In keeping with the trend The New York Times’ T Magazine reaches for Prada, sheathing Vanessa Axente in one of the brand’s oversized coats in a strong cover image by Craig McDean.

Chanel’s Knock Outs

July 11th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

After that impressive supermarket set for the fall show you might have expected Chanel to deliver a campaign filled with walls of groceries and models pushing carts to the checkout line, but Karl Lagerfeld likes to keep us on our toes. Eschewing the familiar and taking the brand’s imagery into an even more unexpected place Karl sets the fall ads in a boxing gym. We’re sure more than a few fights have broken out over Chanel’s quilted bags and little black jackets so the venue seems oddly fitting. Cara Delevingne and Binx Walton are front and center in Lagerfeld’s images looking cool and chic amidst the gritty backdrop – considering the collection’s sportswear leanings the ultra-cool ads seem right on target.

Olivier Rousteing‘s vision for Balmain has always embraced a global view of fashion and his fall show merged a diverse series of cultural influences into an arresting collection. For the corresponding campaign Mario Sorrenti (Art Partner) shoots the stunning cast of Jourdan Dunn, Cara Delevingne, Leona Binx Walton, Ysaunny Brito, Issa LishJackson Hale and newcomer Kayla Scott for a series of beautiful images that bring to life the intensity of Rouseteing’s designs. Art directed and styled by Katie Grand the campaign also serves to presents a modern view of what a brand can be, “I could not be more happy with this campaign.” says Balmain’s creative director Olivier Rousteing “It illustrates my vision of the house. These six different women, from such an incredible mix of backgrounds, are all united to present what a modern French house can be. This campaign both reflects today’s realities and the possibilities of the fashion world.”

Mulberry Hills

July 2nd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Mulberry heads back to its rugged roots with a picturesque campaign set against a Scottish highland backdrop. Tim Walker eschews the fantastical in favor of the simple pleasures of green hills and blue skies and it makes for beautiful images. Cara Delevingne plays modern English rose in Walker’s shots, sporting knit sweaters and minis as she totes around the line’s signature bags. Walking alongside hunting hounds might not require the use of a Bayswater tote, but the added touch of luxury certainly doesn’t hurt and Edward Enninful‘s skillful styling makes each fall ensemble seem perfect.

Mod Squad

June 26th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The resurgence of mod was one of fall’s most impactful runway trends and American Vogue captures the look with a playful Mario Testino (Art Partner) editorial starring Cara Delevingne. London girl Cara is the perfect person to pull off this quintessentially British look and she’s joined by lead singer of The Heartbreaks Matthew Whitehouse and Josh Nickerson (Anti-Agency), both of whom look authentically retro. Grace Coddington handles styling and as always provides an eye-catching mix of designer wares. Pieces from Tom Ford, Burberry and Saint Laurent Paris are put to good use and Didier Malige (Art Partner) and Linda Cantello‘s hair & makeup provide the final touch of swinging sixties beauty.

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.

Queen Cara

November 20th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

i-D Magazine

Fashion’s current queen of all media grabs her scepter and poses up a storm in the pages of i-D. With an Elizabethan meets avant-garde theme (very Vivienne Westwood) and a wild array of new fashion, the cover and accompanying story are an off-kilter take on tradition. With Cara set to take Hollywood by storm (the Brit beauty has two films slated for 2014) it is great to see images that put her flair for drama to good use.
