Love. Magazine. Besides being a fashion magazine and having to live up to its “Love” title, Katie Grand’s edited fashmag goes out and blasts the actual idea and significance of “Love”.
The Spring Summer 2011 issue cover proudly shows Kate Moss kissing Lea T. . Sure, it’s an interesting sight to see and quite a challenging moral issue, I’m convinced. I only find myself more and more saddened by the fashion-ization and desacralization of Love by the fashindustry. And in what ways is this suppose to fight for what Lea T stands for? In my eyes it’s a sad and desolate state she’s in, pray to whatever bounds from the fashpeople’s imaginations. This is a human being’s life, why make it something less important than it really is?
Photographer: Mert and Marcus. Also – doesn’t that look too much like Inez and Vinoodh’s iconic Lanvin ad from 2010? (if you’re not entirely satisfied with this cover, wait till Justin Bieber photographed by Terry Richardson becomes available! no, it’s not, though I so wished it would be a joke!) (Love via)
