Editorial Flashback: Lindsay Lohan’s Superhero Shoot

L lohan super heros Editorial Flashback: Lindsay Lohans Superhero Shoot %tag

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 Flashback: Remembering Steve McQueen

steve mcqueen 2 Editorial Flashback: Remembering Steve McQueen %tag

When we talk about male Hollywood legends surely at the top of everyone’s list is the incredible Steve McQueen – not only for his rugged good looks but also his long list of amazing films. My favourite is hard to choose, I love The Great Escape, The Towering Inferno and the original The Thomas Crown Affair – but I think if I had to watch one right now I think it would have to be Bullitt. This gritty crime drama has it all – a great backdrop in the city of San Francisco, 60’s fashion, and one beauty of a car – the Ford Mustang.

It was because of my love of his films that when I came across this editorial he did in 1965 for Harper’s Bazaar with Jean Shrimpton that I just had to share. Shot by Richard Avedon – I love how the editorial shows off his cheeky side as well as even with a few wrinkles that he was one good-looking guy.

The shot with him looking into Jean’s eyes is my favourite – not only are her eyelashes incredible but I reckon it took a while to capture as he looks like he couldn’t stop laughing.

Are you a fan of Steve McQueen?

Cover Loving: Jennifer Lawrence Is A Vision For Harper’s Bazaar

harpers bazaar nov jennifer Cover Loving: Jennifer Lawrence Is A Vision For Harpers Bazaar %tag

 

 

 

With the second Hunger Games film hitting cinema screens in less than two months, I’m not surprised to see Jennifer Lawrence on the November issue of UK’s Harper’s Bazaar, and I think we will be seeing a lot more of the Oscar-winning actress before the year is out.

Not that I am complaining as this is another stunning cover of Jennifer, I actually think I prefer it to her recent US Vogue cover. Shot by Ben Hassett, this is the subscriber cover and I adore everything about it – the Dior Couture dress, the OTT rings, and the dramatic red lippy – but why does it look a little over airbrushed, she seriously didn’t need it, and what is she actually leaning her arm on???

I am being uber-picky, this is a gorgeous cover and I even love the phrase that Jennifer is a “reckless beauty” – I can’t wait to see the accompanying editorial and the newsstand cover.

Do you like Jennifer Lawrence’s latest cover?

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

Harpers bazaar sept miley 1 Editorial Loving: Miley Cryus In Couture For Harpers Bazaar %tag

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.

Cover Loving: Carey Mulligan Is Pretty In Pink For Harper’s Bazaar

If you were a little disappointed with Carey Mulligan’s American Vogue cover, and according to my Twitter you were, well I am sure that the June issue of Harper’s Bazaar will more than make up for it.

Shot by Tom Allen, these covers not only showcase Carey’s beauty, but also a touch of her personality, especially the subscriber cover with her laughing, which I am so pleased to see as her other editorials have been so serious.

As well as adoring the blossom background and her subtly but girlie make-up, I am in love with her gorgeous pink Prada coat the floral embellishments are to-die-for!!!

I have to be honest I am not sure when I last picked up a copy of Harper’s Bazaar, much less when I added one to my growing magazine collection **I’m limited to keeping just the very best**, but I can’t wait to pick up this beauty on May 2 as I’m excited to see the accompanying ethereal fashion shoot featuring Erdem and Bottega Veneta.

Do you like Carey’s latest cover? Will you be buying the June issue of Harper’s Bazaar?

Cover Loving: February Magazines Are All About Actresses

Vanity Fair jennifer lawren1 Cover Loving: February Magazines Are All About Actresses %tag

You can tell that it is award season as all the major magazines have gorgeous actresses gracing their covers. Vanity Fair has gone for Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence, Harper’s Bazaar have an elegant looking Anne Hathaway, Glamour UK goes girlie with Emma Stone, and Victoria Beckham’s designs score two covers with both Scarlett Johansson and Kristen Stewart wearing white on the covers of ELLE UK and V Magazine.

My favourite has to be the gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence sporting her natural blonde locks in a fun cover for Vanity Fair. Shot by Ellen von Unwerth there is a softness in Jennifer’s face on the cover that is transformed into a complete vixen for the accompanying editorial and I love it. Sometimes Jennifer can be a little too serious – this cover is fun and relaxed and definitely brightened up my day.

Wearing a D&G botanical floral print, Emma is perfect for Glamour’s audience, I just wish they had gone for a different colour for the font – the orange is working for me. Anyone else was thinking this cover looks a little familiar? Well you would be right as a very similar shot from the same shoot was used for Glamour US back in May 2011.

Next up has to be Scarlett Johansson’s subscriber cover for ELLE UK’s February issue wearing a Burberry coat shot by Rankin. I like the newsstand version with her working a Victoria Beckham microbrush and lace dress but only from the ankles up, I am not loving those runway Manolo Blahnik for Victoria Beckham shoes. The subscriber cover is intriguing – I love the messy hair and seeing only one eye – Scarlett looks beautiful.

It was hard to decide who came next between Anne and Kristen, I am not blown away by either cover to be honest, but I think Harper’s Bazaar just takes it because of that gorgeous crystal-embellished Giorgio Armani strapless gown – all I can say about the rest is does Anne have a lazy eye?

Kristen doesn’t fair much better for me on V Magazine’s Spring 2013 issue. It isn’t that I don’t like the styling, the white Victoria Beckham vest with a black bra peeking out is fine, the make-up is grundy as you would expect from the Twilight actress – the problem I have is that I feel I have seen it all before – the wet hair, the moody look, the dark make-up around the eyes. Anyone else a little bored?
