I’ve been waiting for a better quality image (an unofficial, low quality capture was already circulating for over a week now) to judge freely on May 2010 Vogue’s cover.
Sarah Jessica Parker is the star of this month’s cover. Good or bad? Good – after all, everyone loves Carrie…umm Sarah Jessica Parker. Bad – it’s a commercial move (SATC 2 is coming up soon) and a highly photoshop-altered one. Not to mention it’s Vogue, the “Bible” of fashion and it’s featuring an actress, not a professional fashion – something? (the story continues right after the jump with more images and a behind-the-scenes video!)
I have the deepest respect for Anna Wintour and her way of being who she is and doing what she does. However, that doesn’t mean I can’t observe how Vogue’s cover are worryingly starting to age on us. Despite the Photoshop. Sarah Jessica Parker? She couldn’t do anything remotely convincing outside her SATC role. Which wouldn’t be such a bad thing if she was famous for her personal style and not for some movie’s character style; character styled by a professional stylist.
I like Sarah Jessica Parker. I even like Vogue May pictorial – it’s lady-ish and royal. I dislike calling/considering SJP a style icon (since it’s clear enough people based this style-judgment on her being Carrie). But isn’t there anyone left available for a Vogue cover? Besides Jessica Biel and company? Someone with a non-fictional style, noteworthy and pleasant? (photos via, interview can be read here)
