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.

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.

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.

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 …

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.

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).

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 …

This Month magazines was about Oscars contenders battle. (Almost) Every cover puts an Oscars candidate on them and my selection has been 99% feminine. [1] The Hollywood Reporter presents 7 actresses contenders for Oscars nomination: Rachel Weisz, Amy Adams, Marion Cotillard, Naomi Watts, Anne Hathaway, Sally Field, and Helen Hunt. (JustJared).
