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 June & July 2014 ISSUE : COVER BATTLE

Top Stories of the Month. “A.K.A” New York Magazine gave human white windowless van Terry Richardson a.k.a Uncle Terry a.ka Terry the terrible a.k.a Terry the pervy a platform to speak out against all the allegations from models. But don’t waste your time. Instead watch a porn and it’ll be the same. Or else read Buzzfeed. Michael Fassbender a.k.a McFASSY a.k.a FASSO a.k.a Assbender (You’re the best Dlisted) is on the cover of DETAILS. After is again lost from the Oscars, Fasso is back under the spotlight promoting the newest X-Men: Days of Future Past. First : Fasso is badass playing Magneto. Second : Who cares about the movie, Fasso is hot Period ! Three : I’ve lost track of who McFassy is dating now… Shame co-star Nicole Beharie?  British Olympian Louise Hazel ? Zoe Kravitz ? Naomi Campbel ?(!!!!) Lupita ??????? (aww yeah still dreamin’). No matter who’s Fasso’s bumping is still the center character of my obsessions !  Anyway you must read this interview he gave for DETAILS  Mila Kunis is on Marie Claire this months and she’s promoting her baby bump.

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. Elle Fanning, Kate Mara, Lupita ‘the great’ Nyong’o, Elizabeth Olsen, and Camillia Clarke on the Marie Claire 4 covers. Marie Claire US taps promising actress for this month issue.

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 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 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 …
