COVER: KATI NESCHER BY PAOLO ROVERSI, DAZED & CONFUSED, JULY 2013

Enveloped in the wild flames of a printed Givenchy ensemble, an ominous Kati Nescher fronts the July 2013 cover of Dazed & Confused’s “Trash & Burn” themed issue.

Lensed by Paolo Roversi and styled brilliantly by Robbie Spencer, her slicked wet hair and ash tinged moonlit face give off an almost eerie necromantic vibe, which of course I adore, along with the drama of Riccardo Tisci’s busy chiffon shirt and twill skirt cocooned dramatically by the unruly torn paper stole.

The only thing that I would probably lose (as I have mentioned several times recently when it comes to the magazine), is that rather distracting cello-taped strap line but other than that, I do love me some dark and damning Dazed & Confused!

COVER: MIA WASIKOWSKA BY THEO WENNER, DAZED & CONFUSED, MARCH 2013

Hooray for Dazed!

After a disappointing start to the new year with some not so great looking cover’s (well I didn’t like them), Dazed & Confused makes a comeback with this beautiful Theo Wenner shot of Mia Wasikowska looking rather nonchalant and Geisha-like in a beautifully embroidered Kimono for their March 2013 cover.

PHOTOGRAPHY: “THE AGE OF IRIS” BY JEFF BARK, DAZED & CONFUSED, NOVEMBER 2012

*Bows to the Queen of quirkiness”

Standing as if she really does own the throne (well it is her house after all), and in front of plastic draped floral wallpapered walls, the wonderfully eccentric Iris Apfel dons Rei Kawakubo’s 2D red/yellow Commes Des Garçon’s creation while holding her tweety bird glass on the November cover of Dazed & Confused.

Check out the editorial shot by Jeff Bark, which sees the outspoken 91 year old in her uniquely “zen-meets-baroque style”, which she pulls off with such ease and finesse!

COVER: JOAN SMALLS & SAM RILEY BY SEAN & SENG, DAZED & CONFUSED, OCTOBER 2012

Model of the moment Joan Smalls & actor Sam Riley lustfully take a bite from the forbidden fruit on the cover of october’s Dazed & Confused.

The image photographed by Sean & Seng, clearly lives up to the “Temptation” theme of the issue and works beautifully alongside the retro inspired look, with Joan donning Prada A/W 2012 & Sam wearing a Sandro polo neck and Diesel jacket.

Don’t you just love it when Dazed delivers? *licks lips*

Teal haired, foul mouthed, rebel of the moment Azealia Banks covers the september issue of Dazed & Confused in what a number of countries have deemed as a controversial cover…. They clearly need to stop living in 1901.

COVER: CHLOE SEVIGNY BY MICHAEL SCHWARTZ, DAZED & CONFUSED KOREA, AUGUST 2012

I’ve had 4 glasses of wine so forgive me.

I don’t know what it is exactly but there’s just something about Chloe Sevigny that annoys me and make me uncomfortable. I thought I could get over it from her latest Miu Miu campaign, but this new cover lensed by Michael Schwartz has made me regress back to the “Urgh Chloe” phase.

Her facial expression with the overtly masculine pose just doesn’t work for me. I understand that’s the point of this cover, but she looks so unnatural and uncomfortable it completely puts me off. Maybe she’s taken her transgender role for series Hit & Miss too far – “Your not wearing a prosthetic penis anymore love, close the legs”>

Sorry Dazed daaarrhhlllinnngs, I love you but I don’t love this…BUT I do love the leather shear-ling jacket on me.

If anyone give a sh*t, the editorial is below – although i do like the close-up “holding my knee” image, that works really well.

COVER: SNOOP DOGG BY THEO WENNER FOR DAZED & CONFUSED, AUGUST 2012

Please Note: In relation to the image used on this post, scratching and sniffing your screen will NOT make you high. I will not be held responsible for whatever you pot heads do to your equipment.

The rapper dons several medals for puffing boxing and covers the august 2012 issue of Dazed & Confused in fighting form. The black, yellow, red, blue, green, white coloured styling, a clear nod to the olympics and the dominance of the green and black – a nod to Jamaica perhaps?

COVER: ZENIA SEVASTYANOVA BY KACPER KASPRZYK, DAZED & CONFUSED, JULY 2012

Dazed & Confused are like the cool kids at school. Not the cheerleaders that will grow up to be cheated on by their jock husbands and knocked up with three kids in a trailer, but the Edward Cullen/Stefan Salvatore ones that everyone fears but wants secretly want to jump on.

The magazine is constantly on the cutting edge of fashion and photography and just like their June issue with Noomi Rapace, have  once again excelled themselves by featuring the “literary world’s new luminaries” in an exceptional manner.

Check out the accompanying editorial shot by Kacper Kasprzyk and featuring models Katryn Kruger, Cora Emmanuel, Mackenzie Drazan, Madison Headrickm and Maria Bradley here.
