new york + london - blaynistas, let's talk about the dynamic vogue covers on both sides of the pond. the u.k led off with a beauty shot of victoria beckham aka posh spice. when i first heard about it, i didn't necessarily love the move, but i understood. posh is - like it or not - a style icon. (to whom? i don't know.) after seeing the cover and the spread, i've just got to say kudos. i'm all about it. it was a brilliant move.
vogue u.s paired lebron james and gisele bunchden for it's shape issue. both personalities were very apropo copies, and photographer annie liebowitz can do no wrong (can't wait for the day she captures me on film!) BUT it would have been nice to see lebron in a more glam or adventurous get up. what he's wearing speaks to the issues theme (fair enough) but it also looks like he just stepped off the court. i haven't seen the actual spread, so perhaps they glammed him up in there...? let me know if you've seen it and what you think.
