All summer long, we here at Fashionista have debated (argued over?) the song of the summer. I’ve been on team “Blurred Lines” despite its rape-y overtones and despite the fact that Robin Thicke filed a preemptive lawsuit to defend his song from claims of copyright infringement. (But seriously, how did he not copy Marvin Gaye’s “Got to Give It Up”?) Others have lobbied hard for Miley Cyrus’s “We Can’t Stop” (to be fair, this was pre-VMA performance) and Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” was undeniably everywhere.
Well, I’d like to declare “Blurred Lines” the controversial winner.
See, apparently Carine Roitfeld and the whole CR Fashion Book crew listened to it (and watched the video) all summer long, too. And loved it. Roitfeld loved it so much she plucked the video’s star model, Emily Ratajkowski, to cover Issue 3 of CR Fashion Book (the cover that doesn’t feature a very pregnant Kim Kardashian).
Bruce Weber, he of the lusty Abercrombie & Fitch catalogues, shot the cover and the accompanying very lusty editorial called “Love Washes Over All.” The story features Ratajkowski, Karlie Kloss, and many attractive male models loving each other in various states of undress and wetness. Kim Kardashian’s cover story will still probably get more buzz–but this steamy editorial certainly gives it a run for its money.
