September Issue

I love September. Rainy days, winter clothes and the best magazine issues of the year. Here are a few of my favourite September covers…

22 year-old actress Emma Stone (Superbad, House Bunny, Zombieland) has turned into a cover girl for ASOS’ New York September Fashion Issue. I love love love her photoshoot. Her look is really cute: the red-ish hair, the freckly skin and blue eyes. And the clothes are simple but beautiful, my favourite cover this month.

Gossip Girl’s Jessica Szohr (most recently in the new film Piranha 3D) covers Nylon’s September TV Issue. I like her photoshoot, but she looks just like she does in Gossip Girl, that sort of sweet, fun, happy girl. I would have liked to see a different side to her, slightly more edgy, just like the clothes. Still, very cute nonetheless.

For all Kate Moss lovers, the editorial does not disappoint. UK Vogue got 36 year-old Moss to model trends for A/W. She’s beautiful styled, and the simplicity of the shot (by Patrick Demarchelier) is stunning. Also, check out the Georgia Armani article about life for the 76-year-old designer.

I love both Elle US and UK covers this September. I love the expressions in the Julia Roberts shoot for ELLE US. It’s so simple (monochrome outfits with happy expressions), and so gorgeous. And the exclusive subscriber cover for Elle UK is another of my most favourite September covers. I love the shot itself, with her hair covering her face and the glimpse of her dark eyes. Her interview is really inspiring too. She’s a quaint young English actress who is Hollywood’s next big thing. Love it.

Look out for the next post where I discuss October covers and an awe-inspiring editorial from Elle UK…

Hold Up!

Hold ups, stay ups, stockings, legwarmers, knee highs. Whatever you want to call them, they’re the newest microtrend this season. Whether its Prada or Alexander Wang on the runway, Lucy Hale in ‘Pretty Little Liars’, or on the highstreet at Topshop and Urban Outfitters. They come in all sizes and patterns and you can wear them with almost anything. Dresses, shorts, an oversized tee or jumper, or you could pull a Wang and wear them simply on their own with a big cape. However you wear it, they look good. And as they range from £3 to £10 on the highstreet, this is one microtrend we can all afford to enjoy.
