FASHION MAGAZINE APRIL 2014 ISSUE : COVER BATTLE

Let me tell you a little story : I woke on saturday 22 March morning, and I am about to write an intro for this post. But this morning I woke up so so fucking annoyed!!! This months magazine battle was going pretty well. For once every cover were pretty much relevant. Game of Thrones were quietly but strongly promoting their new season, graces us with 3 covers this months. Perfect. Mad men and Girls were also starring this month. Absolutely great. Angie Jo as Maleficent is stunning. Even Justin Bieber on Rolling Stone didn’t bother me at all. But then this happened. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK ! And the Internet went through a mental seizure for a second. I hate them for forcing me to feature them on my cover battle. This Month top covers : This month is big on launching.  Game Of Thrones is the big winner of this month battle ; Mad Men is second. Big movies like Maleficent are in the loop too and they have started their promo tour since december so they’re well prepare. …

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 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 July & August 2013 Issue : Cover Battle

I’ve been a bit late later on updating my blog. But hey I do have a good excuse : moving in Paris and starting a new job ARE good excuses isn’t it? Well it looks like I wasn’t the only one being late this month, every mag were late too (hey I don’t blame them, interns have to do all the job by themselves while managers are on vacation). Anyway so here my selection of best / worst boring, entertaining magazines covers of July and August. There’s no excitement and nothing blows out but it’s pretty normal nothing happened lately since the mastectomy of Angie Jo so Mags have to sell their shit by selling some good old sexy blond chicks whoring up their ass! So No Kimye, No Angie, No Jenni Law,. UPDATE: my bad yes of course something happened the duchess Kate birth out the new prince of England and I really can’t wait to see which mag will get the honor to make the Royal cover.   My favourite of this month …

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 …

Fashion Magazine February Issue : Cover Battle (decoded)

Update ! Beyonce on GQ Cover It’s the last minute cover that just went out today! Bey on the cover of GQ by Terry Richardson. It is for sure a very sexy cover a bit Rihanna Look-a-like (Remember Rihanna’s December cover half naked ?). It’s perfectly in time for Beyonce that will be performing at the 2013 Super Bowl which airs on Feb. 3. ( look at the super mini T-shirt she’s wearing, is it a footballer shirt?). Jessica Chastain on the InStyle February Issue The new Chastain is learning how to play the game. Jessica Chastain is predicted for an Oscar nomination for Best Actress ( Zero Dark Thirty ) so she has to upgrade her image a bit and became a real Hollywood star, not just an actress. She also needs to enhance her fashion potential and sell more than just acting skills: It’s sad that the Hollywood system doesn’t let young actresses JUST be actresses at this point, they also have to have some personal stuff to sell, some drama, some fashion sense, and they have …
