Cover Loving: Jennifer Lawrence For Vogue

So the September issues have been a little hit and miss this year for me. I loved Katy Perry’s ELLE UK’s subscription issue but wasn’t taken with her flamingo pose on the newsstand version, I thought Glamour US played safe putting Jennifer Aniston on the cover I much preferred the Chloë Moretz editorial, and while I was a little bored seeing Sarah Jessica Parker in another gold dress on Harper’s Bazaar US, I did quite like Nina Dobrev’s awkward pose for Cosmo.

It has to be said though, other than the new-look Lucky magazine with Blake Lively in that exquisite blue Gucci coat, I haven’t really been blown me away – until I saw the gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence on the cover of Vogue US.

Since it was revealed last month that the Hunger Games star was going to be gracing the September issue I have been excited to see it – and I think Mario Testino has captured a gorgeous cover. Granted it is more of a ‘beauty’ than ‘fashion’ shot but I think it is perfection and she really is glowing.

I know for some there will be criticism that this isn’t a fashion shot, maybe a full-length would have been more appropriate for a September issue, to show off the fashion, but for me I adore the close-up shot of the actress, especially as it shows off her new shorter hair.

A few snaps of the accompanying editorial have also been spotted online, I am loving the vintage feel to them being in black and white and I can’t wait to see in print, as well as read the interview with the cover line “unguarded” I am expecting some juicy!!!

Are you a fan of Jennifer Lawrence’s Vogue US cover?

US Vogue: A Predictable Jennifer Lopez Cover

Last week I brought you Jennifer Lopez doing her best Million Dollar Baby impression with her very unexpected sporty cover for V Magazine, well it seems April is J-Lo’s month as she is also fronting American Vogue’s Shape issue with a more traditional glamorous look.

When I saw this cover, I was a little disappointed that it wasn’t the other Jennifer – Lawrence that is promoting The Hunger Games as I am obsessed with the books, but I have to admit I don’t dislike it, however I am not wowed by it. Jennifer Lopez looks stunning in what looks like a Bottega Veneta gown in the cover shot taken by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, but after seeing her do something completely different for V Magazine this shot is just nice, nothing more, nothing less. Am I being a little harsh?

What did surprise me was that Vogue seem to be having a love-in with singers lately – February went to Taylor Swift, March to the lovely Adele and now J-Lo. I am hoping for something a little different and more creative for May.

September Issue: The Infamous Unpublished Pic – Thanks Coco

This weekend I re-watched the amazing documentary The September Issue by R J Cutler, starring the stylish team of American Vogue. It got me thinking of all the shots that are taken out of the 2007 September issue, especially from the Grace Coddington shoot, captured by Steven Meisel, and starring Coco Rocha.

This spread was my favourite section of the whole magazine, and it was a shame that some pages had to be left out *Anna wasn’t too keen on it*, but thanks to Coco here is the infamous unpublished picture – gorgeous isn’t it.

I wonder if magazines like Vogue, ELLE and Glamour would ever publish some of the unused material as part of an archive section of their websites? As I love the shot above and I bet there are many more beauties just gathering dust as a jpeg on publisher’s servers.

Cover Loving: Anne Hathaway Graces American Vogue

Pic: American Vogue - November 2010

OMG I had to look twice at this November’s cover of American Vogue – how much does Anne Hathaway look like Eva Mendes?

It’s the pose, the smile and the hair? Come on is it just me?

Admittedly, this is a great cover Anne looks amazing in a gorgeous strapless Oscar de la Renta – but I just can’t get Eva Mendes out of my head when looking at it.
