VOGUE UK, AN ODD TO A TIMELESS FEMINITY

Last Month Vogue UK unveiled its new December issue cover featuring model and activist, Adwoa Aboah under the new editor in chief of the magazine, Edward Enninful. This is the first time that Vogue is naming a black editor to run one of their edition which makes it a collector issue. The cover embodies the peps and sensuality of the 70’s, when supermodels like Pat Cleveland were the queens of the catwalk and dance floors. We particularly love the colourful head wrap, a timeless accessory, symbol of feminity and flamboyance in the disco’s era, also adopted by intellectual feminist figures like Simone de Beauvoir in the 40’s or more recently by novelist’s Zadie Smith.

Taraji P Henson was the cover girl for July’s W Magazine issue. Her black and white picture referencing Diana Ross circa 1980 where she posed in white tee and jeans for her hit album “Diana”. Two ways of being sexy at different times!

Cover Up

After the Spring 14 ad campaign for Balmain, Rihanna is once again getting the fashion sphere excited: she just scored her third cover story for Vogue US, which is pretty rare even for big Hollywood actresses all the more for a young singer of colour.  It seems that Anna Wintour can’t get enough of her style and cool attitude, definitely a nice shake up for the readership of the glossy high end magazine!
