Best Magazine Covers for August 2011…

Hi, my name is Cara Gray and I am a Magazine Addict. I purchase several each month – sometimes even those in other languages!

And many times this is all down to the cover. The power of an exceptional Fashion Magazine cover can never be under estimated. The model (or celebrity); the fashion; the styling; the typography – all elements coming together to create a pure fashion fantasy.       

My favourite Covers so far for August 2011 are:

>> Emma Stone on the cover of Vanity Fair
>> Anne Hathaway for Harper’s Bazaar US
>> Zoe Saldana covers Harper’s Bazaar Russia
>> Mila Kunis gracing the cover of Flare Canada

Below are some of the gorgeous photos from Anne Hathaway’s Harper’s Bazaar feature. Wearing looks by Miu Miu; Max Mara; Prada; Valentino; and Alexander McQueen; Hathaway looks timelessly glamorous in this chic London editorial!

Which magazine is your ‘must read’ each month? xx

Reese Witherspoon’s US Vogue Controversy

Reese Witherspoon graces the May 2011 Vogue US cover and her feature interview has caused a little controversy online. When interviewer Jonathan Van Meter began asking Witherspoon questions about fashion, it is reported she quickly finished his sentence and her tiny comment hasn’t made some of the fashion pack very happy. Van Meter began “People who love fashion often …”, before Witherspoon finished “Lack perspective?” – with apparently a “comically judgmental look on her face”.

Her photo editorial for this issue is spectacular though. Wearing divine gowns by Dior, Narciso Rodriguez, Dolce & Gabbana and more; I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Old-Hollywood glamour and whimsical magic of the shoot! Simply Darling!

Christian Louboutin Sues For Use Of Red Soles

Last week Christian Louboutin filed a lawsuit against Yves Saint Laurent for a pair of YSL red pumps with red soles (pictured far right).  The red suede shoes with matching red soles are apart of the Spring / Summer 2011 collection which also features other coloured soles. Purple shoes with purple soles,  navy shoes with navy soles and so on.

Louboutin began using red soles in 1993 and filed for trademark protection in the US in 2007. In January this year, a lawsuit was also filed against Carmen Steffens of Brazil for the same alleged trademark infringement (heels pictured right).

In an official statement for Carmen Steffens this week it was said, “We are ready to provide unassailable evidence that we have been using coloured soles, especially red, before Mr Christian Louboutin popularised his.”. Watch this space…

Miu Miu’s Spring / Summer 2011 Ad Cleared

The UK Advertising Standard Authority (ASA) has investigated whether the latest Miu Miu campaign is ‘responsible’ to be shown. The campaign starring Kasia Struss, was placed in question for Struss’ slim frame. Two people had complained about the ad citing that the model was “significantly underweight”.

In its official verdict the ASA reported “We considered that the ad was typical of those used for fashion products and that the model did not look significantly underweight. We therefore concluded that the ad was not irresponsible.”
