Who’s That Girl?

19/10/2011, Celebrity Gossip, Fashion and Style, Magazine Covers, Vogue USA

Behold the striking November 2011 issue of American Vogue. Rooney Mara, who’s in the new film The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, is on the cover shot by Mert & Marcus.

I’ve seen the movie ‘The Social Network’ in long-haul flights not once but many times but, yes, I had to google Vogue’s cover girl. That’s right. Rooney who? Excuse my ignorance. When was the last time you googled a Vogue (or most American fashion magazines) cover subject? Never, I’m sure! I simply couldn’t stop asking myself — WHO’S THAT GIRL?

In this day and age of formulaic magazine covers, it’s admirable that American Vogue is leading the way by featuring an actress that is not overexposed. I love the element of surprise, the element of mystery. Truly a breath of fresh air.

On the subject of Rooney — it’s all about transformation. Take a look at google images and you’ll see how she transformed herself for her role. Spectacular.

I can’t wait to get this issue!

What a beautiful, beautiful cover eh?

Yes, a model on the front page, shock and awe, gasp, no need to reach out for your medication because you’re not hallucinating. About bloody time!

Thank you for making us dream again with the spectacular wedding photos. I want to get married, too!

I can’t wait to get my hands on this issue. I’m very curious about the editorials and their “Made in China” feature.

Emma Watson for Vogue USA July 2011

14/06/2011, Celebrity Gossip, Magazine Covers, Prada, Vogue USA

Once upon a time, I’ve looked up to the international editions of Vogue to find something new to inspire me. You know… something new, something that isn’t the same old, same old, something extraordinary. But what happens when most of the international Vogues become repetitive and the big elephant in the room, the grand-daddy of all Vogues, start flexing its muscles? Well, one cannot help but feel its powerful presence. This is what’s going on at the moment. American Vogue is on the right path (war path, perhaps?), taking me on this rollercoaster ride of glamorous extravaganza as of late. When young starlet Emma Watson of Harry Potter fame chopped her locks last year, the first thing that came to my mind was — VOGUE cover! Fast forward a year later, here’s Emma, in Prada, on the July 2011 cover of American Vogue. I love the transformation! Dudette is finally a lady.

I can’t wait to get this issue. Bravo Anna, bravo!

Penelope Cruz for American Vogue June 2011

22/05/2011, Celebrity Gossip, Dolce & Gabbana, Fashion and Style, Magazine Covers, Vogue USA

Following the blockbuster Lady Gaga (pink hair) and Rihanna (red hair) covers, how refreshing is Penelope’s US Vogue cover? She wore Dolce & Gabbana throughout the issue. What a natural beauty!

THUMBS UP: Joan Small’s editorial was my favourite. I also love the Novak Djokovic piece. His body is pure perfection. Dasha Shishkin’s feature was a great read. Liu Wen in Prabal Gurung looks glamorous.

THUMBS DOWN: Slightly disappointed with the “America Beautiful” fashion spreads — I liked Karlie and Raquel, Arizona was too practical and Isabeli, for the lack of a better word, looks cheap. Also, Index was very weak.

I’m gonna read the whole magazine soon.

Reese Witherspoon For American Vogue May 2011 Cover

11/04/2011, Celebrity Gossip, Fashion and Style, Magazine Covers, Vogue USA

Reese Witherspoon, in Roland Mouret, is on the cover of May 2011 issue of American Vogue.

Reese looks terrific. The cover photo, shot by Peter Lindbergh, looks great! Very cinematic. This is the power of American Vogue at its best: the ability to transform Dorothy-next-door actresses into untouchable, unreachable, high-voltage glossy amazons.

Also, I must say that I’m very impressed that Anna Wintour picked a non-advertiser on the cover. Forgive me if I’m wrong but as far as I know, Roland Mouret doesn’t advertise yet.

I can’t wait to get my issue!

17/03/2011, Celebrity Gossip, Chanel, Fashion and Style, Magazine Covers, Rihanna, Vogue USA

Have you seen the latest issue of American Vogue? Rihanna, in Chanel, looks ravishing on this (long-overdue if I may add) cover.

I’m still recovering from Lady Gaga’s marvelous March issue (one of my faves from Vogue as of late). Whoever spiked the watercooler on the 12th floor deserves a gold medal. One smashing issue after another, it’s obvious that they’ve been drinking some major Kool-Aid.

Can’t wait to get my hands on this one. Big kudos to Anna and her team. High-fives all around!

Bryanboy for Vogue Nippon February 2011

February next year is gonna be an interesting month for me, magazine-wise. I was shot for the cover for a Singaporean fashion magazine a few weeks ago — I can't wait for you to see the end result. It's a MASSIVE surprise and you'll be shocked.

Meanwhile, I took part at a shoot for the amazing folks at Vogue Nippon last year and now their February 2011 issue (Karen Elson in Prada cover) is out. Here's my double page spread for their editorial called "Bloggers Beat".

Speaking of Japan, I'm currently stranded at Tokyo Narita airport and I'm just passing time at the lounge. My connecting flight has been delayed. Wish me luck. I can't wait to go to my next destination.
