Editorial Flashback: Lindsay Lohan’s Superhero Shoot

L-lohan-super-heros

Over the weekend my friends and I were having a discussion about Lindsay Lohan, as you do, and we were trying to figure out how many comebacks this 27 year-old has had – not the most intellectual of conversations and to be honest we aren’t sure how we even came to be discussing her but it got me thinking about some of her editorial shoots.

There have been a few that stick in my mind – like the incredible cover she did for ELLE UK in 2009, the Interview cover looking like Elizabeth Taylor in 2006 and who can forget her Playboy cover in 2012. But one of the editorials that really stands out for me has to be her ‘I Need a Hero’ fashion spread for Harper’s Bazaar US captured by Peter Lindbergh for the March 2008 issue.

What I love about this editorial, other than the fact Lindsay actually looks good, has to be the contrast of the wannabe heroes and everyday settings with the high-fashion of her styling – as well as the fun comic book fonts. Who would have thought a Dior slip would be seen in a laundrette alongside Captain America, but I think seeing Lindsay hand-in-hand with Batman while wearing that gorgeous Nina Ricci gown has to be favourite. Seriously why do we not have editorials like this any more?

Do you love Lindsay’s superhero shoot as much as me?

Cover Loving: Kate Hudson For Harper’s Bazaar US

Kate Hudson is really having a moment lately, wowing on the red carpet, and now looking incredible on the latest cover of Harper’s Bazaar US for the magazine’s December issue.

Shot by Alexi Lubomirski, Kate shows off her super toned body in a gorgeous selection of designer clothing from the festive red Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci dress and Alexander McQueen gowns to her shimmering Lanvin gown on the cover.

As well as working gorgeous gowns, the actress also looks hots in a cut-out gold embellished Roberto Cavalli swimsuit, which doesn’t scream December issue to me – but hey she looks stunning so why not!!!

In the magazine she chats about her family, keeping fit, as well as discussing her favourite red carpet moments: “The black-and-gold Alexander McQueen dress I wore to the Golden Globes, and a red Stella McCartney and a red Prabal Gurung. I haven’t really done Valentino yet, but I want to.”

I think Kate would look amazing in a floaty Valentino number – here’s hoping that happens during the up-coming award season!!!

Will you be buying the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar US?

Editorial Loving: Miley Cryus In Couture For Harper’s Bazaar

Harpers-bazaar-sept-miley-1

Singer Miley Cyrus has taken out her grill and put her twerking on hold to look all glamorous in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar US wearing the most gorgeous haute couture looks from the autumn/winter collections.

Styled by Lessie Lessin and shot by Terry Richardson, the Can't Stop singer looks elegant wearing looks by Armani Prive, Chanel, Dior, Valentino, Giambattista Valli, and Atelier Versace.

I love all the pieces, the styling is amazing, but my favourites has to be that exquisite ruffled Armani Prive gown draped out in front of the car, it is a gown waiting for a glitzy award show red carpet, and the gorgeous red Giambattista Valli gown captured in front of the sunset.

Every since she cut her hair she has been on a fashion transformation and this editorial shows that she is all grown up and it suits her. It is a shame really that they didn't give her the cover.

Do you like Miley's couture editorial in Harper's Bazaar?

Cover Loving: Gwen Stefani for Harper’s Bazaar US

Finally, the Harper’s Bazaar US cover for September has been released. This is the one I have been waiting for and I am not disappointed Gwen Stefani is stunning and I am going to have to say it’s my favourite September cover.

As soon as I saw this girlie cover I actually swooned. I knew it would be amazing, I am a huge Gwen fan, and she looks gorgeous in this Jil Sander gown and amazing Alexis Mabille couture hat, but what I am super happy about is that they decided for girlie and glamorous rather than edgy and quirky.

To be honest the No Doubt singer really could pull off anything and I am so pleased that she wore one of my favourite Alexander McQueen gowns as well as this striking figure-hugging The Row leather dress. But the one picture that really made me squeal had to be seeing Gwen in this black Vera Wang bridal gown paired with elbow-length leather gloves and cute pink framed shades – how Barbie doll does she look – I would buy a Gwen Stefani Barbie in a heartbeat!!!

So what do you think of this Terry Richardson shot Harper’s Bazaar cover? Granted it is very text heavy, but this cover is what I was wanting to see from Victoria Beckham – it is very fashionable and eye-catching!

Check out the rest of Gwen’s amazing editorial on the Harper’s Bazaar’s website – there are some beauties of her wearing Versace, Oscar de la Renta and Diane von Furstenberg. I will be rushing to this issue come August 21 – will you?
