caught my eye

I get bored with American Vogue, there is always a famous celebrity standing on the cover - similar pose, similar facial expression. If you saw the extremely dated looking June 2009 cover with Cameron Diaz, you’d understand what I am saying.

So I was rummaging through the magazine store, looking for a new magazine that might strike my interest. And in seconds, I landed upon Vogue Brazil. This cover wowed me. The cover is stunning. I love all the colors and the wild feathers. What do you think?

i totally agree with you. not only the cover but the inside is also getting boring. how hard can it be to shoot your cover model thru a different angle? there's a dire need to do something revolutionary in the magazine industry!

I like the early 80's look to it and the intense wild look in the models eyes. I want to see models back so bad. I'm tired of the same celebrities.

Very. I love international fashion magazines better than American. I love the pictures and enjoy reading the articles from that country's cultural point of view.

Know what you mean, I'm thinking the same and who's on the cover makes me decide if I buy the mag or not ...So this afternoon, I bought the ELLE UK version with Winona Rider on it ! She's still very beautiful and some sort of icon to me !
She's also natural blonde but she colours her hair dark, just like me !!
Love her !!

It's a far cry from American Vogue, you are so right. First of all, this one has color, and wouldn't we expect that from Brazil?

Melissa said...

I think that if I could pull off that look I'd wear it everyday.

Much more artistry than Vogue here.
