Lindsey Wixson Covers Harper’s Bazaar UK May 2017

Hey peeps. I have the very first magazine cover for the month of May. The lovely Lindsey Wixson covers Harper’s Bazaar UK May 2017 issue, wearing Valentino. This newsstand cover shot by Erik Madigan Heck, is all shades of beautiful!

 

 

Lindsey Wixson is a 22-year-old American fashion model, known for her unique looks, defined in part by her “bee-stung lips”, “rosebud pout”, and gapped front teeth. I really like the cover. I think the powers that be picked the right cover girl. Her face is like a breath of fresh air, which is fab!

This May issue cover is very different in a good way. It would definitely stand out on the newsstands for all the right reasons. Wixson’s makeup is nicely done and the cover is very colourful, which is great for the spring season.

The photography game here is so tight, the photos are giving me life. But I wasn’t expecting anything less from Harper’s Bazaar and Erik Madigan Heck. They are the real deal.

I really like the subscribers’ cover too. I think it is also really beautiful, but I prefer the newsstands cover. I will be reading this issue if I come across it but I don’t see myself buying a copy. It does look great, and I may have both it just for the pictures, but I am not so sure I would like the content.

What are your thoughts? Which cover do you prefer? Will you be reading this issue? Please sound off in the comments section below.

Thanks for reading, commenting and sharing. Have a lovely day.

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?

Female Body Shapes: The Ballerina Shaped Woman

I have previously written about the different female body shapes some years. It was actually one of the first blog posts I wrote in 2012 when I first started blogging, check it out here. It is an Oldie but a Goldie, it was well received and is still one of the most popular posts on the blog so I decided to write a series of more detailed posts about the different female body shapes.

Today it is all about The Ballerina body shape. This shape is desirable for ballad and it is also meant for fashion, it consists of a tiny waist, small bust, defined toned body, narrow hips and endless legs. Twiggy, Nicole Kidman and Audrey Hepburn are some of the famous ballerina shaped women. Some fashion models also have this shape.

The ballerina shaped woman has the tendency to look boyish so The Fashion Tip is to go for feminine pieces like an A line skirt, a full skirt and similar pieces.

When it comes to any body shape, the idea is to highlight the positives and delete the negatives. Here are the DOs and DONTs for the ballerina shaped woman:

DOs

  1. Play up your body shape with solid colours like black and white.
  2. Wear full skirts and big bold belts to draw attention to your tiny waist.
  3. Opt for outfits that show off your graceful neck.
  4. Opt for feminine pieces like dresses, skirts and so on.

DONTs

  1. Avoid maxi skirts and dresses, they do nothing for your silhouette.
  2. Avoid tight bodycon dresses. You don’t have the curves to fill them.
  3. Avoid clothes with large print, they have the power to drown out your elegant features.

Those are the fashion tips for the ballerina shaped woman. Are you a ballerina shaped woman? Do you have any tips to share? Sound off in the comment section. Thanks for reading and have a fantastic Friday.
