FASHION MAGAZINE MAY 2014 ISSUE : COVER BATTLE

Mad of Thrones This month covers are pretty much the same of last month (GoT, Mad Men, movies promo) except for this mess. And it’s a sad news in prints magazine when we heard that THIS MESS broke sales records beating Beyonce and Michelle Obama previous covers. This month Vogue choose to feature Emma Stone while promoting the super-production ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ . Wtv. Game of Thrones and Mad Men win this month battle by striking 5 top covers ( Well done Nikolaj Coster-Waldau!) Again Camillia Clarke and Elizabeth Moss are the biggest stars. The other top covers are Marie Claire who strike three B+ List star and one A-Lister (Lupita ‘the great’). This multi-covers thing is badass. Lupita ‘ the great’ in the middle.   This Months Top Covers:   The 5 Hollywood girl of 2014.

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 FEBRUARY 2014 ISSUE : COVER BATTLE

TOP COVER DISCUSSION I always found it very interesting that they would push Allison Williams as the “cover girl” on InStyle for GIRLS. Is it because she’s the “pretty” one? Why not use Lena Dunham, as the main writer and probably main actress. Drew Barrymore is pregnant, and she’s launching her own cosmetic brand, and she’s promoting it in all red carpets. Appparently this is enough to strike a Marie Claire covers. This total face cover has a real cosmetic focus classic ! Lorde is on The Rolling Stone. I bet she’ll be the star of the Grammys too. She really is going on her way up, beware Lana Beware ! Someone’s stilling your Indie crown. Lena Denahm is the new Queen of comedy, and the Vogue cover that was rumored for months finally comes up. On February, on point with Golden Globes and the Grammys. BUT photoshop retouch linked by Jezebel last week quickly created a huge buzz on social media. But let’s take a look at the retouch > .. nothing so dramatic, …

Four TV Girls, Four Covers | Elle US February Issue

Elle US features some of the funniest women on the small screen for its annual Women in TV issue ! Zooey Deschanel, Mindy Kaling, Amy Poehler and Allison Williams each get an individual cover. Zooey Deschanel, wearing typical Valentino, talks about the idea that girliness connotes weakness and how it comes up less and less. Allison Williams, while looking at us sensually, compares her style to Jennifer Anniston’s and shares her strategy about becoming America next Sweetheart (good luck honey!). Amy Poehler  is due to win an Emmy and won a Golden Globe last week for her excellent portrayal of Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation. In her ELLE  interview she speaks about juggling between actress/producer/writer and mother. However I am mostly excited about seeing Mindy Kaling finally getting a cover !! But is it me or is her cover very different from the rest? She’s the only one in black & white (WTF!) and on top of that she didn’t get a full but only a head shot (WTFF !?!). Anyway Mindy Kaling herself responded to the controversy surrounding the lack …

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 NOVEMBER 2013 ISSUE : COVER BATTLE

This Months Magazines cover are pretty much boring. I had to really work hard and chasing the good cover and they were none. Actually maybe the most entertaining was Madonna by Terry Richardson, very sexy very porny, very S&M porn arty (the Uncle Terry signtaure). And that was it. Nothing else, some covers are already featuring actors/actress with great Award season potential like Fassbender or Scarlett Johansson, Cosmopolitan plays the buzz card with highly visible Miley Cyrus (easy choice since you know she’s gonna make talk about until at least this december). And other like Vanity Fair plays the card of the good celebrity with Jayz or Monica Bellucci, even if there’s currently no news about them. So here my selection of choice : Madonna for Harper Bazaar Scarlett Johansson promoting Don Jon is on the cover of Elle Canada Jaz-Z for Vanity Fair Monica Bellucci for Vanity Fair Italy James Franco on GQ Penelope Cruz  for Elle Us_ Penelope Cruz is starring The Counselor  ( Cartel ). Omg this movie sounds HOT. Because first there’s Fassy. You …

FASHION MAGAZINE OCTOBER 2013 ISSUE : COVER BATTLE

1. Alexa Chung for Vogue Uk America may have to answer for the Kardashian clan, but England has to answer for Alexa Chung, who seems just as useless as any two random Kardashians put together. But for whatever reason (“thinness”), Alexa continues to be seen as a legitimate style star in England. They keep giving her Vogue UK covers!– Celebitchy 2. Kate Upton for Vanity Fair 100 Vanity Fair has turned 100, sort of. Technically speaking, the Vanity Fair of today is 30 years old. But 100 is such a nice round number. – WWD 3. Michael J. Fox for Rolling Stone For the first time in 26 years, Michael J. Fox is on the cover of Rolling Stone. Twenty-two years after Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease – when his doctor warned that he had no more than 10 years left of his acting career – he’s returning to TV full-time with NBC’s The Michael J. Fox Show. – Rolling Stone mag 4. Justin Timberlake on T  Justin Timberlake covers the the Fall 2013 issue of the New York Times’ T magazine. …

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 …
