Julia Nobis’ Vogue Italia Cover Looks Like the Louis Vuitton Spring 2014 Campaign


Julia Nobis has capped off a lucrative 2013 in the most perfect way possible — scoring a cover of one of the world’s most influential fashion magazines.

Nobis fronts the January 2014 issue of Vogue Italia, shot by Steven Meisel. Meisel worked with the model on multiple editorials throughout 2013, further suggesting that this cover was only a matter of time.

The classic, portrait-style pose and ghostly lighting let Julia’s strong features stand out, an accomplishment considering she’s covered in giant Chanel pearls and a rainbow-colored dress from the brand’s Spring 2014 collection. If those headphone-like ones in particular look a little too familiar to you already, you’re not alone – they’ve already been featured on the covers of Vogue Australia and Harper’s Bazaar UK, plus debuted on the red carpet by zeitgeist-capturing celebrities Nicole Richie and Miley Cyrus.

But there’s one brand in particular being brought to mind here, and it isn’t Chanel, but Louis Vuitton. If it weren’t for the pearls, forum commenter testinofan might be correct in calling this cover an outtake from Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2014 campaign, also shot by Meisel. Fiercification agrees that the similarities distract from the cover’s merits: "I quite like the coldness of the cover (esp for January), although it is far too similar to the LV campaign indeed.”

While the chilly aesthetic has left some commenters cold, the majority are in favor of the moody, classic style — reminiscent, as Mat Cyruss points out, of Italian fashion photographer Paolo Roversi. *Ana* adds, “I get an early 2000s vibe from it, the pose the hair, Julia’s features. I like how the cold blues and whites make the Chanel outfit look more sober instead of creating a big contrast, and love the use of accessories…” Cottonmouth13 agrees the iciness and expression “are what makes this cover a good one.”

We’re also getting Louis Vuitton and giant Chanel pearl déjà vu, but besides that, it’s a gorgeous cover. Seems timing really is everything.

Us Weekly Cover Spoof: Time to Look at More A-Holes



Originally created by the Tumblr LiarTownUSA, which features graphic designer Sean Tejaratchi's devastingly crude Internet commentary in Photoshop form, this Us Weekly cover spoof is worth a look. If you're a tabloid skeptic, the copy might resemble the internal monologue running through your head when you're looking at one of these covers. Except my internal monologue doesn't use the word "assholes" quite so much.

Such a Rebel: Miley Cyrus Has Mohawk for Fashion Magazine



LOVE mag has just released a teaser cover for Issue #11, due out in March, which will apparently feature Miley Cyrus. I sort of begrudge LOVE for setting me up to talk about its Miley coup twice, but I guess that considering the pop star's current status as a permanent trending topic, vying for two rounds of pre-release hype is a smart move on the part of the publication. I just hope teasers don't become the norm. 

Still, this one was photographed by David Sims and shows Miley styled with a blood orange mohawk and matching rollneck sweater, her ear tattooed with the word LOVE. Whether or not the tattoo is fake, it's done in a 'stick and poke' style which, together with her punk-inspired hair, plays up the celebrity megastar's rebellious image. Of course, I question whether a true rebel would be caught dead posing on the cover of a fashion magazine, cool haircut color-coordinated with her turtleneck, lips tense with emoootion but I guess that's just Miley being Miley.

Over in the forums, Melencholybaby suggests that Cyrus was possibly also photographed for the publication by Mert Alas & Marc Piggott, and might appear on the final cover in a wholly different guise. Though that's unconfirmed, Alas did post a couple photos of Cyrus (with bleached brows) to his Instagram and hinted that they were shooting for LOVE.
