FASHION MAGAZINE AUGUST 2014 ISSUE : COVER BATTLE

Top Story of the Month : We Have to Talk About Vogue We have to talk about Vogue people. Since Vogue (and Anna Devil Wintour) decided to embrace the idea of feature  accomplished women on it’s cover we all agree that putting celebrity was a good idea. Vogue is and always has been so Waspy oriented. It wasn’t a problem in the 80’s, it became one in the 90’s, now it’s clearly a major issue. On top of that Vogue, like every other printed magazine knows the internet fracture and the audience keep on decreasing. It’s a matter of fact. So what did Vogue decided to do ? Make buzz story. Like every other.

FASHION MAGAZINE MARCH 2014 ISSUE : COVER BATTLE

This Month Top Conversation: Miley Cyrus x Vogue & W mag The wannabe provocator pop singer Miley Cyrus strike two cover this month and prove us she can be even less dress than ever. Miley is still promoting her album Bangerz hard and the competition is hard out there. Between the Beyonce, the Katy Perry and the Lady  Gaga of our time, Miley Cyrus is doing everything she can to erase  her old Disney image from our memories. “I don’t give a shit. I’m not Disney, where they have, like, an Asian girl, a black girl, and a white girl, to be politically correct, and, like, everyone has bright-colored T-shirts. “I love weed. I just love getting stoned. I just want it to be back to where it’s, like, organic, good weed.”_ W magazine Miley goes all Gaga on W magazine cover (we got to admit the shoot is good) and she’s going for Marilyn Monroe all the way on Vogue Germany.  Miley could keep her “white trash and Chanel” vibe all to herself because Wintour wasn’t having it on …

FASHION MAGAZINE JANUARY 2014 ISSUE : COVER BATTLE

The Battle of Oscar Campaigners Those covers smell a lot like Oscar campaigning to me, don’t they? Of couuuuuuuuurse they do !!!!!! Can’t you see ? All the Golden Globes nominees are here : Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams in American Hustle, Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmine, Idris Elba in Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, Jared Leto in Dallas Buyers Club. We have to notice here that there are no Golden Globe nomination for Claire Danes in Homeland (but already won every awards last year so anyway), NO ZOE SALDANA which reminds me “What happened with this  controversial Nina Simone Biopic ???”. And none for Carey Mulligan in Inside Llewyn Davis & The Great Gatsby.  The Disney Pop Princess Battle We then get our Disney princesses battle : Britney Spears vs Miley Cyrus. The first one was making her big debut for the first of her 100 performance out of her ‘Piece of Me’ Tour. Showing us all that she STILL can try to dance again ! The other lil twat one is whoring her album as hard as possible… I am pretty sure Queen Bey …

FASHION MAGAZINE DECEMBER 2013 ISSUE : COVER BATTLE

My favourite blogger quote : Kerry Washington for Lucky. ” I am sure the plan was, “Let’s put Kerry Washington on the cover because America is obsessed with her right now,” and not, “Let’s put Kerry Washington on the cover and make her look like she’s suffering through menstrual cramps and an extreme cobweb attack while someone blows a wind cannon at her that’s making it impossible for her to open her eyes.”_Go Fug Yourself Hello There !! I am very happy to celebrate the December cover issue because it’s my 12th cover battle post and this means It the celebration of the One Year Anniversary of this blog. Hip Hip Hurra !! I cannot believe I haven’t gave up. But how could I ? It’s been so much fun to share with you on this so fascinating topic that is Entertainment. It’s a One Year of gossiping, analyzing, criticizing ( bitching) and sometimes sleeping less than 5 hours a day to finish a blog post. I also enjoy the passion of blogging, the pleasure of sharing …

Fashion Magazine September Issue : The Big Battle

THERE IS NOTHING BIGGER THAN THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE. The September issue is always the cover to watch of the year.  The advantage is for the magazine and of course the brands that features the issue because of advertising. And also for the celebrity or the supermodels that strike the cover depending on the notoriety of the magazine. Most of the time it generate good communication for the product that the celebrity support, a new album (Katie Perry) a new movie ( Amber Heard, Diana) or it can help boost an entire career (Jennifer Lawrence, Selena Gomez, Blake Lively) .  The fashion books, as well as some other categories, are the exception to industry-wide advertising declines (WWD).  And as every year the biggest cover is of course the Vogue issue. And this year Jennifer Lawrence made it. September’s advertising page totals came the usual hyperbolic boasts from publishers eager to wow female readers, advertisers and the press. In 2012, Vogue had its biggest September advertising haul, 658 pages, since the flush days of 2008. And in terms of advertising, from 171 for …

Fashion Magazine June 2013 Issue : Cover Battle

As I said, last month Cover Battle was about too big movies and two big actors Leo and RDj.This month is a special battle between three actresses. ZOE SALDANA / NICOLE KIDMAN / CAREY MULLIGAN Nicole is no Carey To my opinion the real battle will be between Nic and Zoe. Carey Mulligan is having  her moment but it’s the same moment that Michelle Williams had with One Week With Marilyn. It was an excellent movie and a very great role and performance. But as Williams, Mulligan is young in this industry and I don’t think she made her proof yet. In the other hand Nicole Kidman wants her Oscar, she wants it hard  ! But not as much as Anne Hattaway wanted it and made her the most hated winner of history. Let see how Cannes played in their favour. LaineyGossip seems to think that it will be a battle between the two Baz Luhrmann Blond muse : When Moulin Rouge went to Cannes, it was a mega spectacle, with Nicole as the focus. …

Fashion Magazine April 2013 Issue : Cover Battle

(Click on the image to enhance) Here we are back for our monthly Fashion Magazine Covers April issue recap ! The big winner – Vogue US – I have to say that once again my first choice is with Vogue  US putting FLOTUS Obama on top. The Boring – – This month is pretty boring actually. After the Oscar we see a little celebrity fatigue, even if W mag  puts  Brit Marling (Who the F*ck is she? The new Harvey Weinstein protégé?) and Eddie Redmayne as “Hollywood’s freshest faces”. – Taylor Swift on the Vanity Fair cover : “It’s Taylor Swift at her Taylor Swiftiest!” (Dlisted). You know that she worst magazine cover sellers in the past 5 years ? (Fashionista) So why keep putting her on top? I am sick of sweet Taylor Swift we are ALL sick of sweet Taylor Swift. Please give us more badass Lindsay Lohan. And Taylor also did the InStyle cover WTF?! Taylor Swift is a country mannequin robot who can’t function unless a barely legal white boy is …

Click here for a quick summary of the interview. You maybe also want to see the entire photoshoot by Mario Testino. Testino really did an amazing job here. Vanity Fair went with a Katie Holmes unofficial cover trashing on Tom Cruise. “It’s like… the Chanel of tabloid covers” The Tom/Kat divorce was one of the juiciest biggest gossip of this summer ( Just before the Kstew cheating scandal). And the story that Vanity Fair is as juicy as the break-up. Because hey ! Since when a divorce is actually scandalous ?
