Elle Spain May 2011: Daria Werbowy

It’s about to get hot in here. Rolling around tropical beaches of the Canary Islands in Cavalli and Emilio Pucci, Daria Werbowy is the perfect bronzed siren. Not the most creative shoots, as it reminds me of several she’s done and several of Kate Moss’s from last year, but her beauty is breathtaking nonetheless.

Elle September Issue: Julia Roberts

I guess they couldn’t decide on which cover to choose for Julia, so they gave the newsstands three covers that are okay and the subscribers get one I feel they should have chosen altogether, but what would be the fun in that. You win some, you lose some.

The editorial is clearly expressing her latest movie, Eat, Pray, Love. From clothing to candles, they’re really pushing this movie as much as possible, so if the actual ticket sales blow, the licensing will certainly bring in all of the money. You have to know how to make a whore out of your product, obviously. Werk it, Roberts.

Rihanna + Balmain = Elle Cover

While her hair is looking more like Two-Face and less peacock lately, I’m actually liking this cover. She’s wearing a fall 2010 Balmain minidress and I loved it the first time I saw it on Sasha Pivovarova back a few months ago. All of that sequins and shine. What I don’t like is the way her body is contorted. It feels she is posed that way to look thinner and less curvy. While the rest of the editorial consists of animal print, I still like it.

Year of the Kerr

Miranda Kerr’s career is in full drive now. The Australian beauty is branching from the VS Angels into high fashion, landing editorial and high fashion campaign gigs for Fall 2010/11. She’s featured in i-D, Elle, and Numéro Magazine. i-D started the Miranda trend with the nude eyebrows, and she looked alien and not herself. Elle brings back the sex kitten we all know. I love the Giambattista Valli python pumps, they’re absolutely to die for, but I wish her hair was a little less I just woke up and decided to put on some sexy clothes and a little more Kate Moss’s fray trend. Nothing too high fashion yet, so moving on to Numéro. They bring back the nude eyebrows that seem to be a growing trend, yet they aren’t cute on Miranda, yet I really like the direction they were going for in this shoot. The eyebrows are really something to downplay her sexpot traits. She’s almost too pretty and doesn’t have any terribly interesting features about her, so I really think the nude eyebrows work in her advantage. Her breasts are no big surprise, been there done that, but the styling is fairly decent with the bad little schoolgirl persona she plays. I think the lighting really helps this a lot. I think she’s almost there. I can’t wait until the Jil Sander campaign. It’s nice to see an Angel spread her wings, no pun intended.
