Style & Then Some

Star Covers: The Olsens, Victoria and Katy?

Usually I don’t care too much for the vacant, ambiguous waif that gets her 15 minutes of fame splashed across the front of a glossy.  Nor am i usually compelled to buy a mag based on the desperate attempts of a celebrity trying to plug whatever they are selling that month (Hello and OK! this is a direct dig at your refusal to put anyone but Katie Price and Kerry Katona on your cover).  But for all my bitching, there have been three publications that have managed to catch my eye, and draw me in with their cover stars recently….

Firstly, ELLE UK’s April edition sees my two absolute girl crushes gracing a cover each, and doing it like the pros that they are.  Decked out in everyone from Prada to Dolce & Gabbana, there is no doubt the Twins are living the American Dream.  Millions in the bank? Check. Two internationally renowned luxury fashion lines? Check.  Swimming in the best gene pool available?  Check.  It’s a wonder I don’t actually hate them.

Secondly, Katy Perry’s first cover after divorcing Russell Brand has left everyone questioning if she has had a face-transplant or if Interview magazine got a little to ‘air-brush’ happy after the initial photo shoot took place.  Looking more like Megan Fox than the ‘Teenage Dream’ beauty on the front cover, Katy also seems to resemble Cheryl Cole in further pictures.  Either way, the amount of buzz this has caused already means the March edition of the  magazine will no doubt be flying off the shelves.

And last, but definitely not least, Victoria Beckham lends her pout to the cover of i-D magazine.  Having successfully made the transformation from WAG-aliscious to bona fide fashion icon, this limited cover all but confirms Mrs. B’s fashion credentials on the international scene.  With a new baby, an army of young men to look after, as well as two fashion lines, I have to admit, there is something about the former Posh Spice that you just have to admire.
