Karlie Kloss Covers Elle UK March 2016

MAIN_KARLIE

I am loving this March 2016 cover of Elle UK featuring American model and tech entrepreneur, Karlie Kloss, photographed by Kai Z Feng. It is proper bright and colourful, and that Louis Vuitton jacket is giving me life right now. Just what I need to look at on a gloomy winter day. Karlie Kloss looks fierce on the cover. Her look kind of reminds me of David Bowie, bless his soul. Guess she was channeling him with this look, and I think she nailed the look she was going for.

The colours on this cover caught my eye on the newsstands, and I found myself grabbing one. Overall, I enjoy reading Elle. I find most of the articles quite interesting and I am sure this would be a good read as well. I have a copy with me, just need to find the time to actually read. I should do so hopefully this weekend.

I am guessing this issue will focus on her business venture, and I am so interested in reading more about that. I am always eager to go into the minds of successful entrepreneurs, so having Karlie Kloss on the cover was a no brainer for me. I knew I had to have it.

For a price tag of £4.10, I can understand why many won’t bother buying this magazine issue. I find Elle quite pricey myself so I tend to buy only few and select issues I am very interested in. I can do quite a lot with £4.10, so splashing that on a magazine every month won’t be sensible. Besides I hardly have space for myself in my house these days, so hoarding magazines wont be smart, lol.

This cover is definitely the best Elle UK magazine cover I have seen this year. Do you agree? Share your thoughts.

Thanks for reading x

Lupita Nyong’o Covers Elle UK January 2016 Issue

ELLE_UK_January_Cover-510x677

The black and beautiful Lupita Nyong’o covers Elle Magazine UK January 2016 issue. This beauty looks amazing on the cover. I love her hair and makeup, and her Louis Vuitton outfit looks stunning. This Lancôme’s first-ever black ambassador is like a breath of fresh air, I love everything she represents and I am super excited to see her on Elle cover.

I remember Lupita Nyong’o from her Shuga Days (an African series), and I am so proud for all what she has achieved in such a short time. For a woman who was once told she was too dark for Hollywood, and would never make it as an actress, only for her to go on to win her Oscar for 12 Years A Slave in January last year, and to become a household name, and a force to reckon with in the entertainment industry, she has done pretty well for herself.

If you turn on the television and you are not represented on that television, you become invisible to yourself. And there was very little of myself that I saw on TV, or in the movies that I was watching, or in magazines that were lying around the salons or around the house. And so these are subconscious things. Yes, Western beauty standards are things that affect the entire world. And then what happens? You’re a society that doesn’t value darker skin.’

 

I must confess I didn’t take to Lupita at first. I was not so impressed with her in the movie – 12 Years A Slave (I preferred the other black woman with the kids), but her drive and determination to succeed inspires me. She is the real deal.

I will be picking up a copy of this issue, I can’t wait to read all what Lupita Nyong’o has to say. The ‘How To Shop The Sale’ and ‘Do You Have The Superwoman Syndrome’ features also look like a good read. I can always trust the Elle Team to deliver on each issue.

What do you think of the cover? Are you a fan of Lupita? Sound off in the comment section, let’s talk.

Thanks for reading. Have a great week.
