Just Watch!

October 10th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Liu Wen.
David Sims.
Vogue China.

The Apple Watch on the cover is getting a great deal of media attention, but don’t forget who’s selling that Céline + Apple combination and making the luxury tech piece look downright essential. November is all about Liu Wen‘s first solo Vogue China cover – the Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin anniversary issue covers were gorgeous but several other girls were featured. Liu owns the stately David Sims image with a quiet power and in the accompanying cover story she’s just as good.

High Kloss

October 6th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

In case you had any doubts about the Karlie Kloss domination of the world take a look at what America’s sweetheart has been up to of late. In addition to being named as the new face of L’Oreal, Karlie has found the time to snap up a fresh cover of Vogue Italia alongside fellow stars Sasha Pivovarova and Lexi Boling. As though that weren’t enough Karlie also graces the October issues of Vogue Netherlands and Vogue Russia and the front page of a little magazine called Lucky - which is usually reserved for the Hollywood celebrity set. Editorially Karlie is no slouch either and her continued presence in Vogue Paris is a testament to that fact – all in all if you’re in need of a Karlie fix you’re sure to get it this month.

LOVE’s 12th

July 21st, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Love Magazine and editor-in-chief Katie Grand  like to keep readers on their toes so issue 12 is filled with the unexpected. Adriana Lima brings a sultry energy to her Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin cover portrait, its flamenco feel providing a welcome playfulness to the month’s newsstand. The shoot marks the very first time Inez & Vinoodh create a cover for LOVE and the image doesn’t disappoint. The David Sims preview of Kendall Jenner whet our appetites for an all-American girl editorial and the final cover is an equally appealing shot of the beauty sporting an oversized fur hat. Last but certainly not least, multiple-Oscar nominee and new face of Max Mara, Amy Adams sheds her sweet image for a raw portrait by Juergen Teller.
