The styling of Leighton Meester‘s latest magazine cover – for Marie Claire – was gorgeous, ethereal, and beautifully varied. On the cover, she wore a lemon-coloured chiffon top from Reed Krakoff Spring/Summer 2012. View Post
Unfortunately, I can only see him as a psychopath. Thanks, Funny Games.
Sarah Jessica Parker‘s Elle, Vogue, and Marie Claire covers were the second or third best-sellers for each publication; Heidi Klum‘s Lucky and Glamour covers were both magazines’ second best performers, and Jennifer Aniston gave Marie Claire its best-selling issue in July and pulled in major sales for her November Elle cover.
Who didn’t do so well? Reese Witherspoon, whose covers marked below-average sales for Vogue, Marie Claire, and Glamour. Interestingly, magazines with Kim Kardashian on the cover were doing well in the beginning of 2011, yet as her so-called ‘sham’ marriage unfolded the numbers have started to look very poor.
Yes, that does mean she was pregnant with strutting her flawless body down the Victorias Secret Fashion Show runway. Weep with me.
Boom! How bombshell delicious does Kate Winslet look on the cover of Marie Claire France‘s November 2011 issue? As a brunette who’s recently decided to go blonde (and stick to it, for once), she is radiating the confidence I need to go under the bleach with a smile. For her James White-lensed cover and photoshoot, Isabel Dupre was in charge of styling and Renato Campora fixed up her lovely blonde locks.
I should probably buy that Burberry trenchcoat for extra smiles, too. Sorry, bank manager.
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).
In case you you’ve been on a media detox this past week, I’m sure you know of a girl named Kate Middleton getting engaged to a guy named Prince William. Well, William Louis. People magazine’s managing editor Larry Hacket has commented on the whole affair by saying,”…this story involves an incredibly attractive girl who is young and going to be a princess. I sure hope she does well. I mean, all this story is lacking is a dragon“.
This is all well and good for the tabloids, who don’t stage dramatic and expensive photo shoots for their covers and can use whatever Middleton shots they have lying around. However, fashion magazine editors at Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar are in a bit of a spot because, well, how do they get Middleton in their issues? Most power females have a running relationship with the US heavyweights. Kate, however, will probably stick to publications on this side of the pond.
“Im sure [Harper’s Bazaar editor-in-chief] Glenda Bailey has already placed a call,” said one source. [PopEater’s Rob] Shuter noted that for American editors, this wedding presents a bit of a role reversal. “Editors in America are used to sharing their photos of, say, Jennifer Aniston, with their counterparts in other countries, but now they will need to play especially nice for access to Middleton, who will undoubtedly want to be in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Marie Claire in the U.K.”
