Step aside for a moment, Vogue Italia. Your neighbour, Elle Italia, has just stolen a little limelight with their Flavia de Oliveira lovefest for their June 2011 issue. Flavia is not only a cover girl, but the solo model (slash dreamgirl) in a convivial and sunkissed spread for the same edition. Both the photographer – Marcelo Krasilcic – and stylist – Eva Geraldine Fontanelli – have to be overjoyed; this kicks sunshiney ass. View Post
Though the final cover of Vogue Paris under Carine Roitfeld has yet to be decided, Emmanuelle Alt‘s first cover girl has just been revealed. To take on her new role as Editor in Chief in the April issue, Emmanuelle is pulling out a safe and glossy Gisele Bündchen. The snooze-worthy supermodel choice was snapped in St. Barts by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. The first Emmanuelle Alt only-directed issue will be in August.
Legendary supermodel Gisele Bundchen is the cover girl for next month’s (that’s February 2011, if you’re still drunk from New Years) cover of Vogue China. The beauty is – of course – under the hands of famed fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier. It’s the type of cover that both makes you want to give Gisele a cuddle, and then go into as much debt via Prada that you could possibly afford.
What a luckless Lively. Even though Blake has been Anna Wintour‘s cover model for three issues this year – including Vogue’s Best Dressed supplement – she is truly not bringing in the dineros. Audit Bureau of Circulations has confirmed that Blake Lively‘s June Vogue cover was the third worst-selling issue of the year and her Esquire cover was the worst-seller of the year. ABC says Taylor Swift wasn’t doing much better, with newsstand sales for her April Elle cover running 60,000 less than average, her November Glamour cover being their second-worst selling issue of the year, and July’s Marie Claire as the magazine’s third worst-selling issue.
Who is magazine gold? Lady Gaga. (Vogue has apparently taken note, as she will be their March cover girl).
