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 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.

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 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, …

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 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 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. …
