COVER: SAOIRSE RONAN BY RANKIN, DAZED & CONFUSED, APRIL 2013
Posted on March 13, 2013
The acclaimed Rankin captures Irish actress Saoirse Ronan in one of the most hauntingly beautiful cover’s for the April issue of Dazed & Confused.
Styled by Cathy Edwards, the eerie cover shot ties perfectly in with the accompanying “Puritans” theme with the actress’ cold pale skin and icy blue eyes peering out from underneath her white washed straw-like styled hair, and with both the fonts and masthead being left in an almost blinding white.
It’s neutral, clinical, somewhat melancholic and thankfully not morbid, while the clever use of depth and layering through the styling and composition only furthers my love for what I consider to be one of the Dazed’s best cover’s so far this year!
