Is it just me, or do you find the "editorials" lately really dull and uninspiring? Some long-legged girl with her cut-offs running around the beach, or standing in front of a grey backdrop, is not "inspiring" or in anyway "interesting." Vogue US photoshoots have been alright lately(or ever since June 2011), but why the fuck is Natalia Vodianova rolling around in a circle? Anyway, I've decided to do this monthly sort of post that I write about the few decent magazines that I like. It'll probably only last for 3 months, but until then let's look at some kick-ass editorials.
Numéro #133 May 2012 — Other than the overly saturated and dark cover, I'm in love with the whole thing. First there Eniko covered in neutral-coloured dresses and flowers, along with Ginta Lapina just being Ginta Lapina with puffy hair. But my favourite is definitely Abbey Lee in this eye-catching photoshoot full of bright graphics and sharp tailoring. The styling, the hair, the angle of the photographs are just perfect.
LOVE Magazine #7 — Just when you thought LOVE #6 couldn't be more flawless, here comes the seventh issue. There are so much contrasting editorials and different styling that it feels like Dazed&Confused-meets-Vogue-Paris, but they work well with each other. Kirsten McMenamy is just being her flawless self with her beautiful hair, as a moth-voodoo queen and chilling on white horses. On the other hand, there's this completely wicked and random photoshoot by Mario Testino, with gems like Gwyneth Paltrow in a Viking Helmut and loads of grunge styling. Yes, grunge.
Vogue Netherlands May 2011 — Although Vogue Netherlands had only made its debut in April, its quality content could easily be compared to some other high fashion stable. Yes, there is one editorial of a girl running around on the beach but it's mostly a beauty editorial and I love the hair. Besides, look on the bright side. Look at Lara Stone
