3 Fashion Magazines Different Summer Covers Approach

  • Pin it

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.

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.

I luv Robin Wright – kudos to her!
IMO – what is missing from the other magazine / pictorials / covers is that they don’t know how to pose & model & then the photographers & editors then don’t know the art of choosing the photo that actually ‘pops’! It is easy to dismiss modelling as a joke job but then when you see Kate Moss or Christy Turlington – one can see that there is actually an art involved. Print media is a dying art – :(
