Finally we’re on Summer’s tail and matching our sandals and our tan will keep us preoccupied for the following months!
Until now, going through fashion magazines and finding transition outfits inspiration was a regular feature. Now, stylish beach stories, dreamy exotic fashion or urban safari references are to be expected. Something to cool off our hot fashion imagination. The three June 2014 covers picked up, however, seem to completely ignore the seasonal rules. Jennifer Lawrence’s Marie Claire, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Vogue Germany and Robin Wright’s Town&Country make for quite the eclectic selection.
Jennifer Lawrence Marie Claire June 2014
This is yet another editorial instance when using a high profile celebrity won’t save the day. Could be the hair, could be the colors or the entire combo, something’s missing. Photographed by Jan Welters, the pictorial reminds me a lot of her regular appearances in Dior ads or similar promotional materials.
Perhaps for the amateur fashion consumer it’s not as obvious or repetitive, but something should still remind us all that Marie Claire is getting ready for a fashionable Summer…
Rosie Huntington Whiteley Vogue Germany June 2014
What a lovely hairdo, what an angelic face, what a perfect body: what’s missing? What clashes? Somewhere, a line has been crossed – Rosie’s pictorial, as photographed by Camilla Akrans and styled by Nicola Knels (hair by Franco Gobbi, makeup by Wendy Rowe), is a bit too much for a fashion sensitive stomach. And how many times did Rosie cried wolf already by warning us all that she was quitting modeling because it’s just not dignifying enough, not allowing her individuality to shine through?
I’m getting a sense of Rosie’s individuality, from a curved, rear perspective and from a series of suggested intimacy. And I can’t tell the differences from any other model – there’s hardly any difference from her previous work.
Robin Wright Town&Country June 2014
This seems to be the most summery editorial perspective from this eclectic selection. Using a pool as a backdrop, wearing white make for a very cliché, yet season appropriate story.
There must be something else as I’m rather partial to Robin Wright as being one of my favorite celebrities and Town&Country magazines has a history of enjoyable covers perspective. Peaceful yet stylish and appealing. At 48, Robin is very much on top of her game, a role model, a fashion model, a style example I’m looking up to.
