Porter's latest issue surfaced on the forums earlier this week. For its second issue, Lucy Yeomans (editor-in-chief) and team enlisted Lady Gaga as the cover subject for Summer 2014. The musical icon is photographed by Dutch duo Inez van Lamsweede & Vinoodh Matadin and wears her grandmother's precious robe on the cover, whilst also wearing an oxidized silver and pearl necklace from Inez & Vinoodh's jewelry range.
I was extremely satisfied with Porter's premiere issue with Gisele Bundchen on the cover, so I was excited to pick the new issue up from the newsstand early this morning. Porter's covers are printed onto a thick glossy card and from the offset, you just know you're in for a real sophisticated read. Issue one wasn't a disappointment and neither is issue two.
This 274-page issue consists of three main fashion stories. These include: Angela Lindvall by Tom Craig, Karen Elson by Jeff Bark and Isabeli Fontana by Yelena Yemchuk. Angela's story entitled 'Sheltering Sky' is a hefty 28 pages long, so it's hard not to stumble across at least one shot whilst leafing through the magazine. The stand-out editorial is Isabeli's, which shows the Brazilian model wearing a wide range of jewelry and oozing her natural beauty via Yemchuk's lens.
We're also treated to articles with Vanessa Paradis, Abbie Cornish, Andre Balazs, as well as a few other hidden treasures amongst the contents.
