The Upton Effect

February 22nd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

The sexy market just got a little more competitive thanks to the meteoric rise of Kate Upton. The Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition was a major coup, but the momentum keeps building with cover after cover. From a Marilyn Monroe turn on the latest Muse Magazine, to upstaging Don Draper himself on Esquire, it seems Kate is gunning for that numero uno slot on Top Sexiest. Only time will tell if the blonde bombshell will make an impact with the high fashion crowd and snag the coveted honors but we can’t remember the last time a newbie made such a splash!

China’s Muse

September 9th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

The September issue of Muse draws inspiration from the red hot fashion scene of China. Sølve Sundsbø shoots Anja Rubik for the striking cover styled by Marie Chaix and China’s biggest star Liu Wen stars in a stunning editorial by Sebastian Kim. The issue serves as an artistic tribute to the impact Chinese talent has had on the fashion industry itself and from the looks of it the content is sure to excite.

EDIT: This just in, there is a second cover! The stunning Zhang Ziyi shot by Yu Tsai
