Caroline Flack Covers Cosmopolitan Magazine July 2017

I found this post very difficult to type and publish. Torn between going on with my usual magazine features, and including Cosmopolitan as usual, or skip Cosmopolitan after last week blogger interview saga with Sarah Ashcroft. I decided to go ahead with my British magazines features and include Cosmopolitan magazine as usual. I enjoy featuring magazine features, and I also enjoy reading them. I will carry on as normal, but will stop once I no longer enjoy it. I have decided not to be dragged into any drama that isn’t mine.

Caroline Flack is the latest cover girl for Cosmo. I am not a fan of this cover at all. I am not feeling the background and outfit she has on. I think the white top looks a bit off. I am not so familiar with Caroline Flack either so I am not in a hurry to read this issue. If I bump into it, I would read it but I won’t go looking for it.

Some of the features on the cover do sound interesting. I would like to read about the new rules of summer style, and I would also like to read Caroline Flack’s interview. I hear she is the host of the TV show – Love Island, and she has been accused of flirting with contestant Alex Bowen, in the last season. I would like to read more about that. Here is what Flack had to say about the controversy –

“I didn’t fancy anyone from the show last year and I don’t this year. You shouldn’t mix business with pleasure, unless, of course, you fall in love – you can’t help that, but I don’t think that’s going to happen.

Alexa Chung is no stranger to magazine covers. She has appeared on many magazine covers already. But this British Vogue’s cover stands out from the rest. I like this bright and bold cover. It was photographed by the legendary Mario Testino and styled by Lucinda Chambers, and Chung looks all shades of amazing on it.

I have read a few negative comments about this particular Vogue cover, and I am not sure what they mean. I love the background and the red fonts on the cover, her makeup  also tick all the right boxes, so it is a good cover for me. I am not sure about outfit she has on though, or the pose, but it is still a good cover. I think Vogue did a great job with this.

I hear Alexa Chung has a new fashion label – Alexachung, and I can’t wait to see how the pieces look like. I am sure they would be super stylish, as she has an amazing fashion sense.

Speaking with Vogue’s Fashion Features Editor, Ellie Pithers; Alexa Chung spoke about why she decided to launch her fashion label and more –

“This is a moment in my life where I felt I could dedicate all my attention in one direction. Age has something to do with it… I’m young enough and excited enough to start something new, but old enough to have learnt a bit. And confident enough to think I could pull it off.”

I am happy for her. Looks like she has found herself. And I am happy she wants to open a shop. I would love to see that dream come true.

I think this is a very pretty summery cover. The cover girl is looking so beautiful, I love her hair and makeup, and the colourful outfit.

In my early blogging days, I was a dedicated follower of Olivia Palermo’s website. I loved her personal style and enjoyed keeping up with her various looks. I have not been on her blog in years, but I still see her work around of social media, and I admire her dedication. She has made a business out of getting dressed, and is very successful at it. This Style Icon is the definition of a Girl Boss!

I would love to read Palermo’s interview with Cosmopolitan, I would love to find out how she made a business out of getting dressed.

Here are a some excerpts from her interview with Cosmo –

Childhood Struggles

“You know, everything was a bit harder for me because I grew up with a learning disability. I don’t want to go into details but… what was wonderful is that people can be very creative in different ways. And we [she refers to her childhood friend Jonathan Simkhai, a designer, to whom she was close to at school] really strived to be creative and that really evolved as we got older… and not necessarily in school.”

 

I didn’t know Olivia had a learning disability. I am happy to see she has not allowed that stop her.

 

Fashion Week Schedule

“Honestly, my schedule is so tight. I have a show on the hour every hour, and appointments. So my priority is the designers and the collections. Of course, it’s nice to change once in a while, and support the designers, if you can, by changing, but there’s not always enough time in the day.”

 

I can imagine how stressful fashion week must be for her. I don’t envy that part at all.
