Check out actress Rooney Mara on the cover of January’s Dazed and Confused Magazine. It is smokin..! Love the epic styling by Karen Langley, it’s so dark and dramatised. Shot by photographer Glen Luchford, the end result is amazingly edgy and uncompromisingly beautiful. I love the dogs, the birds.. the stunning black head piece, the dingy beach setting. The mood of the shoot is dark and dangerous and really emphasizes Mara’s unique, non-stereotypical beauty. I’m looking forward to actually reading her interview, she claims her character ‘lisbeth Salander’ is not that far removed from herself as she’s “always been drawn to darkness.” I love reading interviews with actors, its usually so insightful, interesting & beneficial to know how various artists, approach their roles.
Shot by Mario Testino, the issue features an in depth interview inside. I must say I don’t think this is the shot I would have chosen for the cover.. as I don’t really think she looks like herself. I love her everyday quirky look and style, this lady is a real style icon. I think its a pity they couldn’t have more of that quirkiness in this shot. Its a beautiful shot.. but I personally feel it’s lacking something.. perhaps a tad too airbrushed and safe. Nonetheless its good to see her on the front cover of Vogue.
She’s only pure deadly! x
I’m really pleased to see Lady Gaga grace the cover of ELLE UK, in Irish designer Simone Rocha. The cover shot by Matt Irwin looks absolutely stunning.. so fresh, so ethereal, so minty green! Simone has collaborated recently with Topshop and this isn’t the first time Gaga has stepped out in one of her creations. Its inspiring to see this young fellow Dubliner doing so incredibly well. An exceptional talent, be sure to check out her designs on her website below. Congratulations Ms Rocha and I’ve no doubt this will be the first of many. X
