Love Issue 8 hit newsstands today and in addition to all the Downton Abbey amazingness, there are tons of goodies to be found inside.
Love gave us an exclusive peek at supermodel Kristen McMenamy in "Fawnicate," an editorial shot by Mert & Marcus and styled by Love Editor-in-Chief Katie Grand. We're told the photogs aimed to "throw conventions of beauty to the wind and send fashion frolicking to a wild new frontier."
We'd say they succeeded. In the image, McMenamy's face is distorted by nylon thread and she wears a Calvin Klein bra with a whole lot of chicken cutlets. McMenamy's always been a favorite of Love and Grand, who recently described the then-46-year-old model as "fearless."
With this new editorial, the Downton story, this amazing photo of Jonathan Saunders, and stories about Kate Moss and Karl Lagerfed, we're pretty much not going to be able to breathe until we get our hands on this issue.
