COVER: CANDICE SWANEPOEL & CRYSTAL RENN BY GREGORY HARRIS, 10 MAGAZINE, AUTUMN/WINTER 2012/13
Posted on November 13, 2012
Thank God I walked past this in a bookstore today otherwise I would have missed it!
An Armani wearing Candice Swanepoel imbues two of winter’s biggest womenswear trends – Gothic and Floral – as she grasps her neck, in a both seductive and sadistic fashion in the Autumn/Winter issue of 10 magazine.
The Gregory Harris lensed cover is beautifully shot and there’s something almost nostalgic about the mood and the styling, that comes courtesy of Tony Irvine.
Of course to further add to the drama, Crystal Renn’s cover sees the model looking bruised and bloody as she bares her teeth while smearing the red gore on her face.
Check it out.
Both are simply brilliant covers and have a great narrative attached to them. While Candice’s cover is probably my favourite, I absolutely love the flash of emerald material alongside the deep crimson coloured smears and chipped lapis blue polish.
I will try and post their respective editorials later this week!
