This is too good. On Monday, we showed you
Elle Fanning looks all Victorian spooky (in a good way!) on LOVE's issue six cover, shot by Mert and Marcus. She's wearing a gorgeous Anna Sui Fall 2011 dress. Three more covers and a fashion video by Mert and Marcus will be released this week on models.com's MDX column.
The LOVE buzz just won't stop! Elle Fanning and Chloe Moretz's covers debuted on models.com this week, which has only fueled the LOVE speculation: who else would cover the beloved fashion book? While we guessed that Hailee Steinfeld would be next (Elle+Chloe+Hailee is kind of a thing), we were certain we'd have to wait until Friday to find out. But no! Fashion's favorite man about town Derek Blasberg convinced Katie Grand to spill the beans last night at dinner. Lucky for us, Derek couldn't keep the news to himself, so he Tweeted it around 9pm last night. Thanks D! According to Derek's Tweets the models for the other five unreleased LOVE covers are:
To say we love LOVE is an understatement. We're kinda obsessed. Watching the covers for issue six trickle in was half the fun, so we're a bit sad all eight LOVE covers have been revealed. All total we've got Elle Fanning, Chloe Moretz, Hailee Steinfeld, Lara Stone, Kristen McMenamy, Mariacarla Boscono, Nyasha Matonhodze and Daphne Groeneveld all crying, sans makeup, on the covers of the coveted fashion book. So now the question is: which one is our favorite? Which one is yours? The model covers and accompanying editorial is shot by Mert and Marcus, and styled by Katie Grand and Panos Yiapanis. Take a look.
Dont judge a book by its cover... Unless it's a magazine, in which case, sometimes the cover is the deciding factor of whether or not to buy the mag altogether. The best covers of 2011 returned to a new naturalism and a fun aesthetic, like the Lara Stone T cover we're still drooling over, pictured at left. Sure, there's still room for artifice in fashion (see: Stella Tennant on Vogue Italia), but 2011 was a year for reflecting on natural beauties, incredible models, and stellar photography. After toiling over hundred of covers, we're bringing you "The Best" according to us. Did we forget your favorite? Let us know in the comments.
