On with the September issue!
As you already know, September is the most important month for fashion magazine publications. Therefore, the big players race to present the thickest, most interesting issue, with the most appealing cover faces (while we readers go broke buying everything).
We have seen that Vogue decided to go with Kate Moss for their September cover girl, at the same time giving them opportunity to feature the exclusive photos of Kate’s wedding. But W Magazine’s choice to pick Kristen Stewart for their September fashion issue is worthy of our attention, too.
Now, I have to admit, I usually do not love Kristen Stewart as an actress. I also do not understand why Kristen was chosen to be the face of a fashion issue. However, Kristen usually does great in photo shoots and her shot for W Magazine’s September cover is, I say, one of her best so far.
Styled by Edward Enninful and photographed by Mert & Marcus, Kristen channels the va-va-voom aura of the ‘60s with big hair, sultry eyes, prominent brows, and pale lips. Very Brigitte Bardot. Although, at some point, I also can’t help seeing bits of young Brooke Shield, or some even say, Lindsay Lohan.
For the cover, Kristen is wrapped up in Max Mara mohair and wool sweater. The outerwear theme continues in her editorial shots inside, where she sports Junya Watanabe leather motorcycle jacket and Theory’s Scotia angora polyamide sweater, and little else.
What do you think of it? And do you already have a favorite September issue cover?
