Love is doing another multi-cover for their fifth issue. You'll be able to choose from Kate Moss, Justin Bieber or Lea T. to cover your copy of the 'androgyny issue', the Telegraph confirms.
As Fashionologie points out, Iris Stubegger and Freja Beha Erichsen would have been better choices than Moss and Beiber considering the androgynous theme but nonetheless, we're sure Katie Grand won't fail to impress come February 7. when the issue hits newsstands.
While the usual faces appeared on the runways of this Couture Fashion Week, one bright young star beat her veteran model competition to top spot - Karlie Kloss, who closed for Armani Privé as well as opening both Jean Paul Gaultier and Christian Dior. Quite a feat for such a young model, she beat Carmen Kass, who opened for Michael Kors and Armani Privé, and Karolina Kurkova, who strode onto the catwalk first at Elie Saab.
Unusually for Chanel, the opening outfit was sported by Natasha Poly as opposed to the usual likes of Freja Beha Erichsen, Heidi Mount or Abbey Lee, and the show was closed by Iris Strubegger alongside Lagerfeld favourite Baptiste Giabiconi. Being the new face for the brand, it was unsurprising that Freja opened for Valentino, but overall it was still Kloss that topped the couture charts this season.
Karlie Kloss is having a flying start to the year. Having recently been named as the new face of Hermes, Dior and Oscar de la Renta, the 17-year-old made two apperances for heavyweight labels during this season's Paris Couture Fashion Week. She proved she was the outright star of the week, opening for Elie Saab (in a full length, full-skirted floaty evening gown) and closed for Jean Paul Gaultier's Mexico-meets-Avatar extravaganza.
Other high-profile models floating down the runways included Iris Strubegger, who opened and closed the Armani Prive show, as well as opening for Givenchy. Natalia Vodianova was drafted in to close for Givenchy as Mariacarla Boscono (who usually always closes) was absent from the week-long festivities. The Kaiser kept things simple, opting for Freja Beha to open Chanel's bow-filled collection, whilst Baptiste Giabiconi (of course) and Abbey Lee closed the show dressed as a futuristic-style bride and groom. That reminded us why we love couture week - and all the escapism it brings.
Remember the fuss people made about 'Sin City' a few years ago? Now, the film's signature graphic design has provided inspiration for a Paris model agency's show package for Spring '10. WM wanted its girls to stand out, and what better way than with black-and-white shots and bold accents?
Then, Women Paris - which includes Aline Weber and Iris Strubegger among its ranks - opted for high-contrast shots and pops of yellow. As Fashionologie points out, agencies are going a little comic-book this season, no?
It seems a long, long way from the glittery Victoria's Secret runway when Adriana Lima is so...vampirish in the autumn/winter Givenchy ads. Other shots from the campaign, photographed by Mert & Marcus, feature Iris Strubegger, Mariacarla Boscono and Ranya Mordanova. We love the power shoulders and chiffon in the rest of the campaign, but we need to go to a happy place now.
