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.

Deep Dark

March 6th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Who better to explore the gothic side of fashion than the illustrious team of Craig McDean, Karl Templer and Sasha Pivovarova. With an eye for the atypical and a brooding ferocity that works it’s way into every image, the team creates an expressive vision with a dark twist in the pages of Interview Magazine. With pieces from Alexander McQueenLouis Vuitton and Tom Ford the story focuses on larger than life fashion, rejecting the convention that Spring stories need to be light, bright and filled with saccharine florals. With an inky black coif courtesy of Orlando Pita and understated makeup by Diane Kendal, Sasha is appropriately spooky and adds flair to McDean’s dramatic images.

MIU MIU

Given that we’re right in the middle of awards season, Miu Miu’s actress fronted campaign seems especially timely. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin shoot an array of rising stars including fashion favorites Lupita Nyong’o, Elle Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen and Bella Heathcote

When you wear Tom Ford, all eyes are on you so it only seems fitting that the designer’s S/S 14 campaign centers around a crowdsurfing theme. Models Esther HeeschConrad Bromfield and Carlos Peters get carried away – literally – as Ford shoots them in glamorous pieces from his ready to wear, eyewear and accessories empire.
