Amy Winehouse is September Vogue’s Cover Girl???
American Vogue, that is. When I first saw the headline, I was like…. WHATTT?!?!?!?!?!?!
Amy Winehouse is to appear on the front cover of American Vogue.
The ‘Rehab’ singer was chosen by the fashion bible’s editor Anna Wintour to grace the cover after Wintour fell in love with Amy’s album ‘Back to Black’.
An insider told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper: "An order from Anna Wintour is like a royal command and the order was ‘get me Amy.’
"Anna loved Amy’s album so much that she just had to have her. But at the end of the day, it’s not just about her music, it’s about her rawness, her unique style and her outspokenness. She’s very much a one-off – but incredibly talented with it."
The pictures were taken by world-renowned photographer Bruce Weber and Amy will be the magazine’s cover girl for the September issue, traditionally the best-selling copy of the year.
A source added to Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper: "Wintour was instantly delighted with the outcome and thought Amy oozed cool."
I’m calling my newsagents first thing tomorrow morning to reserve me a copy. I can’t wait to see Anna’s magic.
To be honest with you, if this rumor was true, I think it’s a very bold and very refreshing move from Wintour & Co. I am SOOOO sick of seeing the same old boring, bland Hollywood blonde on the cover of Vogue. You know the usual suspects.
I’m telling y’all, isn’t 2007 a banner year for FASHYONNNNN??
