Elle editors must have received a directive pointing towards teen punk rock pop as the new must in fashion magazine. Women fashion magazines!
While Miley Cyrus covers Elle US, Avril Lavigne takes Elle Canada. There’s no shame in giving up to the commercial temptation, Elle should come forth and say it out loud: we’re only doing this for the money! Otherwise, portraying Avril Lavigne in their August 2009 (Canadian Edition) issue looks a bit weird… (the story continues right after the jump!)
If I was to point a single thing I love about this Elle pictorial, I’d go for the lack of “prune”: Avril keeps her mouth shut! (in the pictures, that is!) That alone could make me consider a second look at Avril’s photos. Now on a closer inspection: matching chipped black nails with sequins and studded bracelets is not how I’d work the trends in my favor, and I wouldn’t call it fashgrowing up either. But Avril said she’s a grown up now ( 24 y.o). In fact, people over at Elle Canada say she’s a mini-mogul! I’d say leave the fashmogul title to Kate Moss and mind those stripes socks stocks! There’s a new Avril Lavigne album coming up this November! (photos via)
