    Finally a Numero cover that isn't some st*pid beauty shot. But what's with these mags doing such blah covers for spring?

    A touch of color would be nice. Though it does look like Numero's logo will be in gold foil or something. You can tell from the scan.

    That's a nice Numero cover. I don't like Daria's new Paris Vogue cover though. But I imagine Gisele would look much better. Can't wait to see the inside.

    And you can bet I will be getting the new "10" magazine, with Valentina on the cover and Julia Stegner inside:

    [​IMG]

    Sadly, I am having some trouble with attachments so I can't post on my beloved "When Stars Wear Runway Looks" or any of the AW collection topics at all. :blink: I am using my school's computer so I have no control over what's going on. I can only hope that it will be fixed soon.

    BTW, the March Allure is nice despite of the dreadful cover. That Julia Stegner/Patrick Demarchelier edit is superior to any of the Vogue/Bazaar edits this month. I love Demarchelier and he, along with Raymond Meier, is the best photographer for Julia. Demarchelier is responsible for the "White-Out" edit in UK Vogue last year as well as Julia and Valentina's Club Monaco ads, not to mention the Piralli calendar. I like Tesh's work with Eugenia as well. Tesh's underrated. His last edit that I really enjoyed was with Daria in Feb. UK Vogue 2004.

    I can't wait for April magazines to arrive b/c I am already bored with my March issues. Lucky is coming out with their "Bag" issue (March was all about shoes) and I am curious to see if they will include the It Bags of the season: Chloe Paddinton, Burberry Cinda, Dolce & Gabbana double bags, just to name a few. It's about time that Lucky steps up in its accessories department.

    I bought Grazia and was sorely disappointed. To sum up, it was more like an insert you would find in a magazine than an actual magazine. Kate Moss is on the cover and there is some ridiculous article about why she won't ever get married (yawn). There wasn't anything there that I couldn't find in one of the US celebrity weeklies so I won't be buying any more issues.

    You are quite welcome. :flower: Thanks for the info on Hello. I will definitely look for it.

    btw, does anyone know how someone can get a copy of the Time Style and Design issue. Is it only available to subscribers?

    March UK Vogue (Kate Moss on cvr in Burberry) was a nice purchase. lady_grey has already reviewed it so I won't reiterate here.

    I loved Julia Stegner's edit with Arthur Elgort--so dramatic and kitschy (in a fun way), not your typical blonde story.
    Eugenia also relaxed under Thomas Schnek's direction, but the editorial is essentially a repeat of their summer collaboration for Bazaar.
    Valentina has had two edits in a row at UK Vogue now, but both were shot with groups. She just got the cover for "10." I hope her popularity in the UK will soon translate stateside.
    Not a fan of the Gemma Ward editorial b/c the makeup is too severe. They put white shadows all around her eyes, which looked too otherworldly. But it had a nice image or two.

    Can't wait to get the Feb. Paris Vogue--saw a preview in French Glamour and Gisele looks fantastic.

    Articles:
    I’ll concentrate on the model-related articles, and leave out most of the usual stuff, like the literature or film review sections
    <LI>The ‘editor’s letter’ introduces the ‘supermodel’ theme of the issue, and tries to put Maria Carla on a similar level to Daria, as a face to follow, even though her momentum isn’t at all on the same level as the latter’s.
    <LI>1 pg ‘flashback’ of a 1989 image of Linda Evangelista in perforated leather gloves, pulling her face (that made the cover of French Photo a few years later).
    <LI>2 pg interview with Tori Amos.
    <LI>2 pg look at the ‘bad girls’ of fashion, three models with attitude - Kristen McMenamy, Linda Evangelista and Leslie Winer (an 80s face).
    <LI>1 pg about Elettra Rossellini, daughter of Isabella.
    <LI>2 pg ‘hot list’ where top models give the addresses of their favourite stores; all accompanying model images are small and are catwalk or backstage shots.
    <LI>1 pg look at an evening gala thrown by Natalia V for her charitable foundation Naked Heart; 4 small images of Natalia with her guests.
    <LI>2 pg look at Maria Carla’s personal style, who likes to dress as if she lives “in a modern fairytale”.
    <LI>1 pg look at Daria’s taste in jewellery.
    <LI>4 pg of polaroids of new models, possibly ‘the supermodels of tomorrow’.
    <LI>4 pg pull-out of classic candids of supermodels from years past, mainly the true supermodels like Linda posing backstage with superstar poise. Gisele is the only modern model who seems to know how to recreate that spirit in spontaneous shots.

    Editorials:
    The first editorial is a long portfolio of single-girl shots by David Sims, all studio-shot against plain backgrounds of white, grey or beige. We have Daria; Raquel; Erin (topless); Diana Dondoe; Julia Stegner (in a Cleopatra-like black wig); Gemma; Iselin; Gisele; Anja Rubik; Hana; Marina Perez; Natalia V; Doutzen; Elise; Liya; and Carmen Kass.

    LES PRINCES is a 10 pg look at the giants of fashion photography, with a scrapbook of images from Newton, Avedon, accompanied by an interview between David Bailey and Bruce Weber.

    EN ROUTE POUR LA GLOIRE is a 12 pg Daria editorial, shot by Mikael Jansson, where she’s a bronzed goddess, out and about in her slick sports car, hair flying in the wind, with the camera lens in close on her long legs, her bikini top, her shades… everything but her eyes. It all looks very ‘summer’, very expensive.

    Then there’s a 6 pg interview between Steven Meisel and Ingrid Sischy, the editor of Interview magazine, accompanied with a few small-sized iconic images from Meisel’s career, mainly early 90’s shots of Christy T and Linda E, but a few Vogue Italia ones of Karen Elson (like her first Vogue Italia cover), Daria, Elise and Stam.

    VIVA MARIACARLA is a 12 pg editorial by Craig McDean, shot in b/w and with the model wearing clothes as if she were a modern-day Italian film star, but I’m not getting that at all from the images; it’s just Mariacarla looking like she’s entered into a second career as a pantomime actress. It’s not glamorous, it’s not striking, it’s just a bit indulgent.

    ‘Dolce e Gabbana, 20 Years’ is a 6 pg tribute to the anniversary of the designers, with 4 pgs of Marija Vujovic wearing their latest collection, interspersed with small, classic images from previous campaigns (Linda, Gisele, Kate Moss, Monica Bellucci) with one page of text.

    A 2 pg focus on Kate Moss, because SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL, followed by a 6 pg studio-shot editorial by Demarchelier, of a young model called Mona, who is supposed to invoke the image of a young Kate Moss. Here she’s standing in ethnic-casual clothes with a mix of textures, desert bag with a T-shirt, plaid shorts with a crocodile bag. She’s nice, but not a patch on Kate Moss at any age.

    Beauty:
    <LI>The beauty section opens with an image of a model with enormous mop of backcombed wild hair.
    <LI>1 pg look at hairstyles from the spring-summer catwalk; 12 small shots of various models.
    <LI>1 pg look at Orlando Pita’s first salon.
    <LI>IN & OUT is a short editorial featuring 3 girls faces, split in half with one side showing a different version of a make-up style to the other, so we have Polina with natural freckles, then with a flawless pale canvas, Jonita with a natural lip, then dramatically defined with lipliner, and then Morgane with a smoky eye, then an eye with white highlighter added to the mix.

    Overall:
    How you feel about this issue will depend on whether you can remember a lot of the images in this issue when they were first taken. Myself, I have the images featured, from magazines I bought in the early 90s, so I’ve seen all of this before in its entirety, so this issue feels rather empty to me. It’s a great idea to focus on supermodels and mix up the old and the new, but there’s neither enough depth to bring any new aspect to the images, nor any fresh images to capture the imagination anew – for me.

    However, if you weren’t buying magazines 15 years ago, this is quite a good issue to get, because it’s an introduction to a lot of things you might not have seen before, shown alongside modern-day models. If I hadn’t seen most of the stuff before, I’d be a lot more excited about this issue than I am.

    I’d say: thumbs up for having a theme, explored all the way through the issue, with old and new images, and not an actress in sight.":flower:
