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.

Donatella’s Stars

November 25th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Lady Gaga‘s surprisingly understated ad for Versace accessories is one of the most talked about campaigns of the moment, but the Versace love affair with fame goes way back. Every few seasons Donatella enlists a star from the world of film, tv or music to pout and preen in the brand’s memorable campaigns and over the years they’ve racked up an impressive array of luminaries. Versace will always be synonymous with the supermodel era but they’re equally known for their connection to the world of celebrity. Star power has always been one of the driving forces behind Versace’s appeal on and off the red carpet – take a look back at some of the famous faces to front ads for the legendary label.

The Silk Road

November 19th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

It’s difficult not to have a soft spot for American Vogue‘s actor + model editorials and over the years the magazine has given us more than a few memorable pairings; Gisele and George Clooney, Gemma Ward and Josh Hartnett, Liya Kebede & Andre 3000, the list goes on. For the December issue Vogue takes things to the next level, enlisting Kate Moss and this year’s Oscar front-runner Chiwetel Ejiofor for a Mario Testino (Art Partner) helmed story that takes the pair to Istanbul on a romantic getaway. Sporting resort looks from BurberryJason Wu and a bit of SS14 Proenza Schouler as styled by Tonne Goodman, the pair looks resplendent. With architectural wonders like the Çinili Köşk as the backdrop and Testino showcasing the beauty of Istanbul in every shot the story also serves as an especially chic travel diary. 

See the full story on Vogue.com including a look behind the scenes with Tonne Goodman
