September. Fall Fashion. The month of the year when Magazines are the thickest. You expect a lot from the mags around this time of year. You need to know what to wear this season and how to wear the new trends this season. So here are the covergirls of Vogue, W, and Elle, and my opinions of each one.
Lindsay Lohan for Elle. OK, why does this girl get all the fame????? Drunk driving, rehab, late night clubbing, and fashion faux pas. This girl is no role model for readers of the magazine. On the Elle website it says, "Lohan on rehab, her narcissism and why she won't trust anyone." Not "Lohan on a new role, a new album and her innovative sense of fashion". Heaven forbid that the magazine industry is relying on famous faces and their juicy stories to sell, sell, sell. I found the shoot dull and repetitive about a girl who abused her fame, and has no real accomplishments.
Gwyneth Paltrow for W. I'm not quite sure what to think about this one. I think that the photo shoot is interesting. The lighting is interesting. But Gwyneth doesn't look like Gwyneth. In this shoot, she looks like a hippie. Her hair-it's so flat! I think she looks too old to be a hippie. Of course, she is lovely none the less gorgeous, but the shoot just doesn't seem to suit her personality. Overall, I think it's a good shoot.
Sienna Miller for Vogue? Not exactly September cover material in my book. Sure, she's a style icon in her own right(well....actually I take that back, not after the way she's been dressing lately) and she is a talented actress. But the September issue of Vogue, and for that matter any magazine, is important. Possibly the most important issues of the year. So the cover should give a fantastic first impression. Instead, it's just a blonde girl staring blankly at me. Last year's Marie Antoinette issue was FABULOUS. A wonderful photo shoot accompanied about an inspirational person. But Sienna Miller is a party girl. She's your basic celebrity. Actress, fashionista, partier turned fashion designer. Not a leader, just a "free spirit". What do you guys think abou this month's Vogue? Did it meet your expectations? Tell me what you think.
