Gloss Girls


The mass of March magazines with glossy girl icons parading around is making my heart double-flutter and my eyes pop.
This is cover design at it's best. Scrap that, this is cover porn.
Gwen Stefani looking, as Adrian G over at Fashion Verbatim pointed out, uncannily like Ms Lara Stone is decked out in one of the cute SS08 Miu Miu dresses and was shot by Mert and Alas (who else?..) She looks like the 2008 version of her Love/Angel/Music/Baby Alice in Wonderland look.
Lindsay Lohan graces Paper Magazine looking fabulously Hollywood. Shot by her BFF Jeremy Scott and styled by Marcell Rocha (who also styles for i-D when it takes his fancy.) Her blonde hair looks great here, shame she didn't put the effort to get somebody to style it like this everyday. She may be shamelessly whoring her comeback, with a string of magazine covers, but it's working because she finally has a film on the agenda. Put those Razzie awards behind you, and get a stylist to keep up with the hype, pronto!
And while you're at Borders picking these up, be sure to get your mitts on March's i-D with eye candy in the form of Raquel Zimmerman looking not at all US Vogue and very Louis Vuitton. It's got the best editorials in it this month, I kid you not.

Gwen indeed looks a lot like Lara Stone, and what a cute dress!

I love the V cover, what isn't better than Demi's cover thought?
but Lindsay I am not keen on on that cover. I really don't like her hair blonde, I might like it more if someone had dyed her hair

Fashiographer said...

I agree on Gwen but disagree on Lohan, she looks...well..like a classy whore with bad skin on that cover. No, wait, she looks like that everywhere.



I guess I don't like her much.

i love the gwen stefani cover. I didn't even recognize her at first!

Miss Woo said...

Yeah, I didn't recognise Stefani either, I think red hair suit her!

lee jones said...

WOOWA! these covers are genius.
style is back in town.

time for some serious magazine shopping!

The Clothes Horse said...

Gwen look gorgeous. But Lohan just looks like a trainwreck!

alluretone said...

ps. i dont think gwens looked better & im loving the styling of lindsay's cover. her - not so much. but the cover is brilliant.

Gwen looks not like herself which is a good thing in this case. Lindsay looks not like herself which yielded less of a good result imo...

Charlotte said...

I love Gwen Stefani and here styling on v magazine is really amazing. And Lindsay Lohan...have you already seen the Monroe shooting with her?

kpriss said...

Gwen's pictures for V look a bit usual for her latest style. And if you check around, you'll see various covers (I found two and posted them on my blog. the one here is the gwen stylee.. the other looked like madonna stylee).

As far as Lindsay goes, "I am what I am" should have received certain punctuation and I would have agree with her being the 'right' way - "I am. What I am?"

jayne said...

hehe funny that you mention charlotte gainsbourgh on your comment on my blog- b/c i already listen to her! but i didn't know jarvis wrote part of her album! cool! i love pulp too- common people, mishapes, and underwear are great songs

Molly ;) said...

SO have to get this.
And you said about going to borders: isnt it great? Right at the back of the one in my town is a whole row of independant fashion magazines, all of which are TONS better than the regular glossies.
Thanks for posting this :) x

capuccino bar said...

i looved the one of gwen, it's very original!

Aisha said...

I didn't recognize Gwen at first sight! she looks awesome, do you know who styled her?

I don't like Lindsay as a blonde that much, i think being a redhead suits her better :) but I'm glad she doesn't have that ugly fake tan on paper's cover =)

riz said...

Is it totally weird I didn't know Lohan and J. Scott were Bff's??

Secretista said...

Gwen is absolutely amazing. The end.

hannah said...

gwen looks amazing, i wouldnt have reconized her if it didnt say it was her. i love it.

lindsays cover kind of scares me...

LML said...

Gwen looks unrecognizable - in a good way. yes i do agree she is channeling a more updated L.A.M.B. alice look! i love her :)

Teresa said...

Gwen does the Lara Stone perfectly, right now to the lack of eyebrows. And Lohan...well, she is who she is.

Blue Floppy Hat said...

I love the Gwen cover- she looks fierce, and I actually thought that was Lara till I came to the text. And Lohan is trashtastic, the hooker hair and makeup actually kind of work on that cover (even if she still looks like a trainwreck).

Alya said...

I absolutely loooove the V cover. Very new of Gwen to look like that.

I have to disagree with Lindsay's cover though. Her hair looks all dried out in the ends. And i'm just SICK of seeing her on magazines with NOTHING to say.

Trendini said...

Gwen looks incredible...only she could pull off a cover like that!
