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.

La Lara

March 10th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

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. Sporting a dusting of tiny paper flowers and a powerful gaze, Lara captivates in this simple yet refined image. Stay tuned for more as Antidote is unveiling one cover per day on their website, Magazine Antidote

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.

Angel Rising

February 25th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

The Ancient Greeks looked to their gods as idols of strength and beauty, values they praised above all else. In a couple thousand years, those qualities still define our icons, especially in fashion. Thus, with a titanic clash of modernity and ancient mythology, Vogue Turkey brings us its “Modern Goddess,” Doutzen Kroes, on three covers for March 2014. Cuneyt Akeroglu photographs and fashion editor Konca Aykan styles as this Victoria’s Secret Angel ascends to Olympian heights, showcasing her athletic figure and gorgeous face. In Spring looks by LanvinVionnet, Jenny Packham, and more, Doutzen is equal parts Diana the Huntress and Helen of Troy, asserting the timelessness of the modern woman.

Sparkle

November 26th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Karmen Pedaru shines in the pages of Vogue Turkey in a stylized shoot from Cuneyt Akeroglu. The December issue kicks the holiday cheer off early with a glittering feature styled by Konca Aykan. Sporting bleached brows and crimson lips created by Lisa Eldridge, Karmen is a glamorous and at times otherworldly muse. In contrast to the sleek cover and high gloss editorial, the simple black and white shots accompanying Pedaru’s interview offer another take on one of fashion’s most wanted beauties.

First Look: Iconic Mariacarla

September 25th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Few models inspire the kind of adoration that Mariacarla Boscono garners.

Mariacarla’s iconic status is celebrated on the latest covers of Vogue Turkey, shot by Cuneyt Akeroglu. From the soulful black and white nude, to an elegant shot of Mariacarla in couture, Akeroglu’s imagery captures the versatility and beauty of a true fashion favorite.

Seeing Spots

May 30th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

When Haider Ackermann filled his S/S13 runway with transparent creations emblazoned with black and white dots, it seemed like an unusual move. Polka dots are a fashion standard dating back years, but the diminutive patterns are more often associated with the prim styles of the 1950s than with the kinds of cutting-edge wares favored on Paris’ runways. The designer so known for his innovative use of lush, saturated color was showing another side, taking one of the most uncool of motifs and making it feel new.

In keeping with the current craze for all things graphic, stylists have embraced the versatility of these simple circles, working Ackermann’s creations into a variety of editorials. On occasion the interpretations don’t veer too far from the runway approach (fashion abides by the ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’ mantra whenever it can) but the excitement comes when the spots are complimented by clashing patterns to create a dynamic visual treat. Whether it is layering in another of Ackermann’s prints from S/S or adding a bold kimono for interest, the real fun lies in the mix which offers stylists an opportunity to show their creativity.

Anja In Bloom

March 26th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Prepare for a double dose of Anja Rubik in the latest issue of Vogue Turkey. Cuneyt Akeroglu shows two very different sides of the blonde beauty in dual stories for Vogue. For the newsstand cover and accompanying editorial, Akeroglu plays up Rubik’s skill for posing with studio portraits that highlight her timeless beauty and a well edited selection of dramatic spring looks – most notably that intricately embroidered Balmain dress on the cover. For Anja’s interview and the subscribers cover the focus is all about nature and sweetness, with Anja laying in a bed of flowers and looking fresh as a daisy; both sets of images provide an elegant showcase for one of the most versatile models in the business.

One & Only

November 27th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

It is always nice to see Joan Smalls‘ smiling face on a magazine covers, so the newest issue of Vogue Turkey is an automatic delight. Shot by Cuneyt Akeroglu and featuring a smiling, dancing Joan doing what she does best – adding a touch of vibrancy to each image with her trademark poise. Akeroglu’s gorgeous black and white shots put Joan’s grace to good use, making her looking as elegant as is humanly possible. All in all the issue provides a fitting showcase for the world’s number one model – call us biased, but we’re especially partial to the Models.com shoutout in the interview!
