And another thing...
SOMETHING else I stumbled upon earlier today that really caught my eye; Love magazine (pretty well known for their controversial covers) have launched an interesting concept for their bi annual third edition.
Issue three; the Fashion Icons issue has eight different covers with eight models who represent the ideal of beauty in fashion today - including Kate Moss, Lara Stone and Naomi Campbell - all pretty much naked!.
"For this issue of LOVE, we took eight women who are generally acknowledged as the most beautiful in the world, got them to show off their bodies - widely regarded as the most perfect in the world - and photographed them all in exactly the same position for the cover," LOVE's editor-in-chief Katie Grand told VOGUE.COM. "We did this to show how much they differed physically from one another, which is why we also printed their measurements."
"The point is that 'perfection' is not fixed, timeless or transcendent," Grand - who put Beth Ditto on the cover of the first ever issue of LOVE - explained. "It varies, as the measurements of our cover girls show."
The eight covers, photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, will go on sale in one week's time - Monday February 8 - priced £5. Visit www.thelovemagazine.co.uk for more information on the issue.
