Kate Moss Kisses Lea T For Love Summer 2011 Cover

  • Pin it

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)

I am Dutch and we are (or were?) more open minded. We’re not easily shocked. I’m not. But this is only meant to cause controversy. Not honour the human being Lea is. What happens to her when the hype is over?

First thing I thought when I saw this photo (I never read Love); have Inez and Vinoodh run out of inspiration?

Me too! Have I become unshockable? I saw this photo & thought “Kate Moss kissing Lea T – big deal”!
