A new semester has started and a week of sickness. Where do I even begin to catch up on my lovely? For one, February is bringing us plenty of magazine covers that are really exceptional. First up, we have Lara Stone gracing the cover of Vogue Paris. Let’s note that this 70s, Gucci-fabulous cover is Carine’s 2nd to last. The editorials inside are sensational, but we’ll post about those later. Moving along, we have the LOVE cover with Lea T. submitting to Kate, which we find more sensual than the hardcore the cover implies. Can’t wait to see more from that. Last but not least, I couldn’t skip Alessandra on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar España for one reason: my devotion to Lanvin. I adore the fitted bodice atop the endlessly, flowing bottom.

I am simply not a fan of this direction for the campaign. Some say it’s better than Madonna’s previous two seasons, but I sort of liked what she brought to the table. To be honest, I didn’t even enjoy these two on the runway. I would have much preferred, and I’m surprised it didn’t happen, Natasha Poly as the face of the new campaign rather than Izabel and Alessandra. Such is life.
LOVE is doing 8 collectible covers, all shot by Mert & Marcus, and it’s turning out to be so magnificent. Rosie gets the worst cover so far, and while we love Alessandras, her doesn’t scream the headlined “Angel”, Gisele and Lauren Hutton’s covers are absolutely on point. Lauren is more than double the age than the ladies and is killing it. Bow down. We see who’s the HBIC and it’s not who we expected. Cannot wait for the next four to arrive.
So much better than Rosie’s blow-up doll cover. Although I love Givenchy’s campaign, I’m not sure if it is a good thing for Alessandra to be confused with Catherine McNeil from those campaigns. Now, to reminisce on a time when eyebrows were relevant.
This editorial in Vogue Russia has such a wonderful cast shot by Sharif Hamza. Coco Rocha, Ana Beatriz Barros, Ylonka Verheul, Jeneil Williams, Dree Hemingway, Sedene Blake, Alessandra Ambrosio and Patricia van der Vliet are all present, working the season’s best trends: Burberry’s leather bomber, Chanel’s furry creations, to Prada and Louis Vuitton’s womanly figured silhouettes, reminiscent of the 60s, with beautiful prints all around.

Featuring Alessandra in Versace on British Vogue, Natasha Poly on Vogue España, and Abbey Lee on Vogue Nippon, we have models that are steaming up the summer covers to end out summer. Now if only we could get that here in America.
Someone has to have it out for Alessandra. The past few modeling gigs she had, surprisingly runway that didn’t include lingerie, her has been overly matronly and 60s-inspired. It’s not terrible and she certainly rocks it, but girlfriend deserves better hair. It doesn’t have to be flow-y and gorgeous all of the time, but I think they could have done one better.
With that aside, I spot some Armani Prive, Dior Haute Couture, Chanel Haute Couture, and what I’m fairly certain is a lavender/mauve Valentino Haute Couture. Beautiful gowns and I’m still loving the Armani fabric texture. It’s so interesting and honestly beautiful; the perfect choice for the construction and shape of the garment. The male models bulging packages are also pretty hot. The Emporio Armani underwear mixed with the dresses is interesting and I really like the mix. Sex, sports, and haute couture.
I suppose Alessandra, Crystal Renn, and Brooklyn Decker will be sharing the cover of Glamour Magazine’s June issue. They’re on location in St Barth’s and celebrating different shapes and sizes. Hm, the only problem is, Crystal Renn is a plus-size model and still not plus-sized if you catch my drift. She’s by far not a beached whale in any scenario. Oh, I’m expecting Photoshop to perfect it a little too. Just saying. Nice try, Glamour.
Looking at a preview of Louis Vuitton. The clothes seem more drab, a bit Miss Havisham, and a lot different than the afro’d models Marc Jacobs put down last season. LVMH must have had a chat with him or something. I’ve seen a few more photos as I’ve typed this and they dresses don’t show knee, quite feminine, and more suitable for a mature female. I’m liking what I see.
Meanwhile, Marc for LV follows on trend with fashion leaders and uses curvier, older models. He uses Laetitia Costa, Bar Rafaeli, Lara Stone, Coco Rocha, Noémi Lenoir, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio again, and my least favorite, Elle McPherson. Lara Stone is 26 and still very in demand as well as Coco being 21 and still has a fabulous career, so I don’t really accept those two on the list. For the rest, they’ve all been or are either bathing models or a VS model and the curves on go so far, so it’s not too shocking out of the fashion world. Take from it what you want. Also, what is up with Stam’s boobs?! That better be a bra, girl.
