Anja Rubik for Vogue Germany September 2009

How funny. I was just admiring this Gucci video the other day…

lo and behold the smart folks over at German Vogue dropped the A-bomb on me for their September issue: MISS ANJA RUBIK!

Anja Rubik for Vogue Germany, Vogue Deutsch, September 2009 Cover

How stunning is she? I *love* Anja. I’ve seen many, many photos and videos of her over the years and that woman is nothing but a thoroughbred. She’s been on the game for quite some time now and she’s piling up them ad campaigns and covers like no other.

Danke schön Vogue Deutsch for the lovely cover!

Commons&Sense and Commons&Sense Man Spring/Summer 2009

Remember what I told the folks over at Dolce & Gabbana/Swide when they interviewed me last week how fashion magazines are the new coffee table books? Well, a huge “care package” arrived on my desk yesterday and Kaoru Sasaki, the lovely and generous Editor-in-Chief of Commons&Sense and Commons&Sense Man Japan (who I met during my trip to Tokyo), sent me the Spring/Summer 2009 issues of his magazines.

Anja Rubik for Vogue Paris June/July 2009 Cover

Anja Rubik for Vogue Paris June/July 2009

The much-awaited and highly-anticipated Vogue Paris cover featuring Anja Rubik is finally here. Although veteran Anja’s been around the fashion circuit for ages, it’s her first French Vogue cover.

Dutch duo Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin took the photo.

I’m not a big fan of studio shots on the covers of magazines but the world is going through a recession so it’s quite understable why more and more mags go through that route.

As much as I adore Carine Roitfeld and Vogue Paris, I feel this cover was a let down.

In any case, good job on Anja for this well-deserved cover. It’s about time!

Cameron Diaz for Vogue USA Cover June 2009

Cameron Diaz for American Vogue

After the recent stunning cover featuring the models of the moment, American Vogue‘s gone back to the usual celebrity pool. Cameron Diaz is on the cover of their June 2009 issue.

I like it. There is something about the cover that screams “American chic”. Maybe it’s the blond in white combo? It’s very American Vogue.

I have to admit though I’m not gonna run to the newsstands to buy this issue (unlike what I did to Michelle Obama’s). Why buy when you can read it at the salon… for free?

Beyonce Knowles Vogue USA April 2009 Cover

14/03/2009, Magazine Covers, Vogue USA

Beyonce Knowles for Vogue

I think it was last year when I've finally come to terms that models have no place when it comes to American Vogue covers. It's simply not the magazine for them. I've given up on whingeing and whining because, quite frankly, it's pointless, useless and akin to giving a litany to a brick wall.

Anyhoo, Beyonce "Sasha Fierce" Knowles is on the cover of Vogue's April 2009 Shape Issue. TBH, I thought she's an interesting choice made by Anna. Didn't she just put First Lady Michelle Obama on this month's cover? When was the last time you saw two black women on the cover of Vogue in a row?
