It is often said that “September is the January of the fashion world”. Ahh, such an exciting time! Let’s take a look at a few of the magazines I recently picked up.
I was pleased to see Sarah Jessica Parker flashing her dazzling smile for Terry Richardson in a glittery Marc Jacobs dress. Very Carrie Bradshaw!
Judging by the cover, I didn’t think the photos of Ms. Barrymore would be that great. But thankfully I was wrong. Her photos were wonderful, shot by Michelangelo Di Battista and styled by Melissa Rubini.
I normally never buy Lucky, but that changed when I saw Serena van der Woodsen on the cover! Mrs. Ryan Reynolds never disappoints in the fashion department and this issue proved that. Photographed by Patrick Demarchelier and styled by Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele.
I like Jennifer Lawrence, I really do. This cover on the other hand… I could do without. Vogue is the original, the Holy Grail in the fashion world, so why on earth would this shot make the cover?! Where’s the fashion? Where’s the style? This cover does nothing for the Oscar winner’s unique beauty. It looks like she took a senior picture, that just so happened to be fabulous enough to make the cover of Vogue.
I have to give major props to W Magazine for putting a real model on the cover of their September Issue. I mean seriously, my Model Moment segments are usually filled with actresses or singers on the covers of magazines and ads. There’s nothing wrong with that, however I feel we need to see models back on the covers of our favorite fashion publications. Thankfully, W read my mind. Mert Alas & Marcus photographed Cara Delevingne and her fabulously arched eyebrows for the coveted cover, wearing Marc Jacobs.
