Editorial Loving: Nicole Kidman For Vogue Germany

Vogue Nicole Kidman 1 Editorial Loving: Nicole Kidman For Vogue Germany %tagI know that everyone has already moved on to the September issues but I have only just picked up the August cover of Vogue Germany, which was an homage to Nicole Kidman. The Australian actress didn’t just get two gorgeous covers, but also three incredible editorials inside that really shows off her model potential and various personalities.

We have the whimsical editorial shot by Camilla Akrans that shows Nicole wearing Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry Prorsum, Louis Vuitton and Valentino in a gorgeous outdoor setting. I just love how Camilla has shot this editorial, the soft lighting and the fuzziness to the images makes it romantic and magical and Nicole looks absolutely gorgeous styled by Nicole Knels and I love the loose curls in her hair.

Then we have the high-fashion editorial shot by Patrick Demarchelier, this is a powerful spread that unleashes Nicole’s inner femme fatale and I love that the majority of the editorial is in black and white as it really suits the dramatic pieces by Rodarte, Yohji Yamamoto, Alexander McQueen, Prada and Haider Ackermann – plus did you spot that incredible studded Chanel glove?

For the final spread, Nicole gets sexy with the help of her pal, designer and stylist L’Wren Scott, who styled her in a check shirt and bra, while she frolicked in a field in a gorgeous editorial shot by Bruce Webber.

I don’t think we see enough of Nicole Kidman in magazines and after seeing these gorgeous but very different editorials I don’t understand why. There has been a transformation of the past few years with Nicole – not just in her editorials but also her red carpet looks and I am loving seeing her be a little more daring with fashion – she is so stunning.

Which editorial do you like the best? I think Camilla Akrans gets my vote as I just love the lighting, the setting and how beautiful Nicole looks.

Editorial Loving: Chloe Moretz Channels Old Hollywood For US Glamour

chloe moretz glamour us sept Editorial Loving: Chloe Moretz Channels Old Hollywood For US Glamour %tag

Do you ever see some editorials and think why wasn’t that on the cover? Well that’s how I am feeling about the September issue of US Glamour. For the ‘Hollywood Issue’ the magazine went for Jennifer Aniston, yes I know she still sells covers, yes she does have a film out, but it just didn’t blow me away, on the other hand this editorial featuring young starlet Chloe Moretz channelling Old Hollywood glamour is divine.

Shot by legendary photographer Patrick Demarchelier, the young actress of Kickass fame looks gorgeous in this editorial which mixes 1940′s Hollywood with a touch of 90′s grunge. At only 16, Chloe looks incredible dressed in looks by Diane Von Furstenberg, Chanel, Saint Laurent, and Isabel Marant.

Just imagine what an impact her black and white pictures would have made on the cover – I know not very Glamour, but come on for the September issue they could have so pulled it off.

I haven’t seen Chloe look this good before in editorials, it is a little mature possible for age, but I think that’s why it works so well and she looks absolutely flawless. I can see many luxury brands considering her as a future face – especially beauty and fragrance brands.

What do you think of Chloe Moretz glamorous editorial? Do you think that Glamour should have taken a chance and placed her on the September issue cover?chloe moretz glamour sept Editorial Loving: Chloe Moretz Channels Old Hollywood For US Glamour %tag chloe moretz glamour sept 1 Editorial Loving: Chloe Moretz Channels Old Hollywood For US Glamour %tag chloe moretz glamour sept 3 Editorial Loving: Chloe Moretz Channels Old Hollywood For US Glamour %tag chloe moretz glamour sept  Editorial Loving: Chloe Moretz Channels Old Hollywood For US Glamour %tag chloe moretz glamour us sep Editorial Loving: Chloe Moretz Channels Old Hollywood For US Glamour %tag chloe moretz glamour sept 2 Editorial Loving: Chloe Moretz Channels Old Hollywood For US Glamour %tag[Pics: Patrick Demarchelier/Glamour via thefashionspot.com]

Cover Loving: Blake Lively Wraps Up In Gucci For Lucky Magazine

Lucky Sept Blake Lively Cover Loving: Blake Lively Wraps Up In Gucci For Lucky Magazine %tag

So the September issues are finally dropping and I have been a little underwhelmed so far, well that was until I saw the gorgeous Blake Lively all wrapped up in this incredible oversized cornflower blue Gucci coat with shearling collar.

Granted with our mini heatwave that we are having wrapping up in a shearing collar coat doesn’t sound appealing – but come on you have to admit that the Gossip Girl star looks incredible on Lucky’s September cover.

Snapped by Patrick Demarchelier and styled by Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, the actress who married Ryan Reynolds last year is the first cover girl for the magazine’s redesign with new editor-in-chief Eva Chen, if like me you are huge Teen Vogue fans you will already be familiar with her work.

Just from the cover I can see that Eva is bringing a more high-fashion feel to Lucky, which I am already excited about, and even though in the past I have enjoyed reading Lucky the covers never really drew me in – but I think that could all be changing.

Head on over to Lucky to see a preview of her cover shoot, Blake looks amazing in an Anthony Vaccarello dress, a classic DKNY trench, a sexy red gown that you will be surprised to find out is H&M, as well as cool oversized Givenchy jumper teamed with the sheer skirt that Zoe Saldana wore on the red carpet - I also love that the mag credits her wedding ring, which in case you were wondering she is wearing throughout!!!

In the accompanying interview Blake chats about dressing up, on texting Christian Louboutin for shoe advice, her style evolution, not having a stylists and how apparently her hubbie has “better taste” than her – I can’t wait to read – I have loved Blake since her GG girls as Serena van der Woodsen and this is a great cover.

What do you think of the new-look Lucky? Are you a fan of Blake Lively’s cover?

For more insight into her cover shoot – check out the behind-the-scenes video that Lucky have posted:

Cover Loving: Kati Nescher In Givenchy For British Vogue

vogue feb 2013 Cover Loving: Kati Nescher In Givenchy For British Vogue %tag

It looks like Vogue didn’t get the memo about using an actress on the cover of their February issue, instead they’ve gone for a Kate Middleton look-a-likey, better known as Russian model Kati Nescher.

It seems Vogue is all about the models, which I like, and for the second month in a row, Kati follows fellow model Kate Lupton on the cover, which looks set to continue next month, as rumours are circulating that Cara Delevingne will grace the March issue.

I have to be honest I am not hundred percent sold on this cover shot by Patrick Demarchelier. I love the gorgeous Givenchy dress, monochrome with ruffles – totally adore, I even love the side-on pose, the elegance, and the red taglines, and I have to salute Vogue for going with a model.

But, what I am not loving is how the styling of the hair seems to have aged poor Kati, maybe they took the Princess Kate reference a little too far, but for me it doesn’t work with the ‘modern glamour’ tagline. Plus is anyone else a little distracted by her ear???

Maybe I have to see it in person to fully appreciate – what do you think of Vogue’s February cover?

Editorial Loving: Gisele For Vogue Brazil

I am loving this graffiti-themed editorial featuring Gisele in the July issue of Vogue Brazil. Shot by Patrick Demarchelier in New York, this editorial is fun and bright, I am loving the neon colours and the clashing prints against the graffiti setting – put all that together with a stunning model like Gisele and it creates such an eye-catching editorial spread.

I have updated this blog as the cover has just been released, I not sure why but I am just not as blown away by the cover as I am the editorial spread. Don’t get me wrong, Gisele is stunning, I love the colours, I just wanted something more.

What I reckon most people will be talking about with this editorial spread is whether Gisele is pregnant, that is the current rumour, yep she covers her stomach a lot, but come on if she is hiding a baby bump she is doing a good job as she looks incredible.

Are you a fan of this Gisele editorial and cover?

Video Loving: Audrey Marnay Face Of Longchamp

French model-turned-actress Audrey Marnay really is raking up her luxury campaigns this season. First with Miu Miu in the creative Powder Room video, and now as the face of Longchamp’s spring 2011 advertising campaign. Her fiery locks are in demand.

Chosen for her unique mix of French chic and cosmopolitan appeal, the flame-haired beauty is captured by legendary photographer Patrick Demarchelier in a series of stunning images.

This season’s campaign evokes the Indian inspiration behind the label’s spring collection and sees Audrey set against a studio backdrop of a surreally blue sea and clear sky, in sharp contrast to the raw, natural elements of the décor.

This behind-the-scenes image is my favourite, with Audrey sitting on a wooden jetty dangling the vibrant pink Gatsby handbag, while the gorgeous petal-print Darshan tote sits beside her. One of each please!
