Ashley Graham Covers British Vogue January 2017

The beautiful American model – Ashley Graham covers the January 2017 issue of British Vogue, and she looks divine on it. I have never heard of this beauty before so it was kind of good to see her on a Vogue cover. I am not completely surprised she is on it though, Vogue tends to feature models a lot more than regular celebs which is kind of good thing I guess.

This issue sounds like a good read. Here are a few excerpts from Graham’s interview with the magazine –

 

Her career journey:

“For 10 years I’d been told I was always going to be a catalogue girl, never a cover girl. Well, I got with IMG and did five covers in a year, boom, boom, boom. See, if you have a pretty face doors will open, but your job isn’t just to walk through them, it’s to get invited back,” she told D’Souza. “Look, I hit the beauty jackpot, I get it, but that’s not enough, you’ve got to have more to have longevity in this business. It’s always been, ‘OK, so what can I do now?’”

I agree with what she has said here completely. The job is to get invited back.

 

On being called a plus size model:

“When we’re supposed to be talking about diversity for women, it feels so divisive and purpose-defeating, giving us yet another label,” she said. She does, however, acknowledge that her body shape, and positive promotion of it, has been not only her own USP, but an inspiration to millions of women who feel forgotten when it comes to finding fashion to fit.

I like the fact that Ashley Graham looks happy in her own skin.

I am on the fence with this issue. I am not sure if I would be picking up a copy or not.

Lily-Rose Depp Covers British Vogue December 2016

The 17 year old actress, and daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis; Lily-Rose Depp,  is the cover girl for December British Vogue. This beautiful cover was shot by Bruce Weber and styled by Joe McKenna.

I really like the cover. I think it is styled beautifully. I like the outfit, hair and makeup. And I love the pose a lot. Lily-Rose Depp is working it on that cover.

In this issue, the cover girl talks about her childhood, career and her relationship with social media.

 

Childhood

“My parents weren’t very strict,” she told William Van Meter for her cover interview. “They’ve always trusted me to be independent and make my own decisions. There wasn’t really anything to rebel against.”

 

Social Media

“I’ve really stopped using it in a personal way,” she told Meter of how she engages with Instagram. “I never like revealing too much about myself. Once you start giving people that look into your life, then they just want more and more.”

This issue sounds very interesting. I love what I see but it does not scream ‘buy me’ to me, so I don’t see myself grabbing a copy. If I bump into it, I would read it, but I won’t go out of my way or part with cash for it. Lily-Rose Depp is stunning, but I know little or nothing about her, apart from the fact that she is Johnny Depp’s kid.

I am a little surprised to see her on British Vogue if I am being completely honest. I think she would have made a fabulous cover girl for Teen Vogue but not British Vogue. I won’t have thought she would appeal to their target market.

Emily Blunt Covers British Vogue November 2016

Emily Blunt covers British Vogue November 2016 and this is her first Vogue cover. This cover is very different from other magazine covers out and about now, and I love it. It is a breath of fresh air. I love her floral outfit, and the background is beautiful. Emily Blunt looks lovely on the cover. Her hair and makeup is spot on. Vogue ticked all the boxes with this cover right here.

I am not a huge fan of Emily Blunt but I have seen many of her movies. And I like her as an actress but I know little or nothing about her personal life. So I can see myself grabbing an issue this weekend. I like the fact that it is a real issue with real-life people, and no models. I have nothing against models but having real life people instead of models all over an issue is good.

In her interview with Vogue, Emily Blunt spoke about her Hollywood position and the lack of strong female leads –

 

“There’s such a shortage that when they do arise there’s a bit of a feeding frenzy among my peers,” she told interviewer Marisa Meltzer. “It’s a very good thing that we keep talking about the issue. It’s a conversation that needs to continue. Although I would prefer that we actually go in a direction of producing and creating more jobs for women in the film industry as opposed to talking about it.”

 

Apart from Blunt’s interview, I am also very interested in reading some of the other features like – “Beauty Confidential – How Real Do You Want to Look”, and “24 Hour Dressing – What You Wear in a Day”.

 

Are you a fan of Emily Blunt? What do you think of this cover?
