Robyn Lawley Covers Cosmopolitan Australia’s March 2014 Issue

robyn-lawley-cosmo-australia

She’s had her share of page time in Cosmopolitan Australia, so it’s about time Robyn Lawley scored her very own cover. Now the 6’2” Aussie stunner has done just that.

Managing to capture our attention in spite of some very Cosmo headlines and a shocking pink background, the coup is definitely deserved. The magazine previously cast her in December 2013 for a bikini shoot in which she wore her own swimwear line.

Scoring magazine covers is hardly a new experience for Lawley. In 2011, she scored the cover of Elle France (alone) and Vogue Italia (alongside Tara Lynn and Candice Huffine), and in that same year starred in a spread for Vogue Australia – the first time (welp) the magazine had ever shot a larger model.

The following year she was the first non-sample sized model to be hired by Ralph Lauren. And in 2013 she really cemented herself into the fashion zeitgeist, penning an article for the Daily Beast addressing the same dangerous “thigh gap” trend referenced here.  

But this is the first time, to our knowledge, one of her covers hasn’t been tarred by the words “plus-sized.” Perhaps 2014 will also be the year Lawley gets a cover that makes no reference to her size at all?

Kate Moss Shows Off Her Styling Skills at Vogue

Proving to all of us that Kate Moss' new title at British Vogue is not just another string on her ridiculously overstrung bow, the model has styled her first fashion shoot in her new role as contributing fashion editor.

Moss is no stranger to being featured in Vogue, having graced the front cover alone 34 times in her modelling history. Yet, this story has shown a whole new side to her, despite the fact that you do not see her in any shot.

Working alongside photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the 40-year-old cast Canadian/Ukranian model Daria Werbowy to star in a grungy story entitled ‘Cause Celibre’ that is out in the latest edition of Vogue, on sale February 6.

Taking inspiration from the rebellious glamour of Seventies psychedelic punk band Devil May Care, Moss clearly has touched on her own image and musical influences as she styles Daria in a range of choppy dark wigs and luxe rock pieces from Lanvin, lame jumpsuits and plunging Saint Laurent mini dresses while she reclines in a convertible car and silk laden bed.

Considering that she has already turned her hand to fashion design, music, singing and charity ambassador, it is hardly a surprise that styling also comes naturally to her, and even more so after over 25 years of wearing the brainchild creations of a plethora of the worlds greatest designers and stylists.

In this month’s editors letter, Alexandra Shulman describes her as "one of the most free spirits of our age," describing how Kate took hold of the story, from "gathering the initial mood board to talking me through the rail of clothes in the Vogue fashion room … Kate took on the complete role of the fashion editor." It sounds like this is only the beginning for Mossy’s new career.

Good Monday! And what a great start to the week this is! The star-spangled Canadian Arts and Fashion Awards held their eagerly anticipated gala ceremony at the Fairmount Royal York, where they honoured the best and brightest this country has to offer. But if you weren’t lucky enough to be able to schmooze with fashion’s finest at the inaugural event, here you can check out the winner’s roll call.

Twin designers Dean and Dan Caten earned a double victory (which only makes sense, right?). They were recognized with an award for outstanding achievement and another for the CAFA for international Canadian designer of the year, which honours a recipient that has achieved success abroad and brought attention to Canadian talent on the world stage.

Toronto's Jeremy Laing was named womenswear designer of the year, while Calgary native Travis Taddeo, received the menswear designer of the year award. Ottawa-born twins Byron and Dexter Peart took home accessory designer of the year honours for their brand WANT les essentiels de vie, which features a classic collection of Italian leather bags and accessories.

BC-native Coco Rocha was in attendance at the event, which gave her the opportunity to collect her award for the CAFA for model of the year in person. You go Coco! Joe “Fresh” Mimran won the Canadian Style Award, which recognizes a recipient who embodies the spirit of the country and serves as an unofficial ambassador for homegrown fashion and culture. The rest of the winners are as follows:

  • Image Maker Award: Photographer Chris Nicholls
  • Stylist of the Year: George Antonopoulos
  • Emerging Talent Award: Sarah Stevenson
  • Special Tribute Vanguard Award: Jeanne Beker

What do you think of the winner’s list? Did all your favorites score a slice of the inaugural pie?

Sofia Coppola Fails to Impress With a ‘Flat’ Cover for Vogue Italia (Forum Buzz)

Sofia Coppola is Vogue Italia's February cover star. The American screenwriter, director, producer and actress (and Louis Vuitton campaign girl), was photographed by Steven Meisel wearing Dolce & Gabbana

Within minutes of the cover being posted, tFS members had quickly dissected it, with negative results.

KKnardi commented, "She looks good on the cover, but she's heavily retouched."

Fluxx also agreed, "Yes, she looks heavily retouched. Just an okay cover for me."

Cottomouth13's knowledge extended his comment and mentioned Sofia's previous Vogue Italia cover which was back in December 1992: "Finally, it's here. I kinda like it. Although the retouching on her face is too obvious. And wow, it's been 21 years since her last VI cover."

"Rather flat cover," said Nymphaea

The collaborations between Steven Meisel and Italian Vogue are extremely strong. Meisel has photographed over 300 covers for the publication so it's hard not to have admiration for the team behind each and every shoot. I, myself, can always see the brilliance, and whilst I'm not a fan of this particular cover, I do look forward to the accompanying cover story.
