When you buy a new lipstick or those shoes you’ve been eyeing for months, what exactly made you do it? Is it because you saw it in a magazine? A blogger was wearing it? A celebrity endorsed it? Or you just stumbled upon it yourself and decided you couldn’t live without it? Think about it, and let’s discuss.
How do you take your fashion magazines? Model? Celebrity? Or neither? (Because really, those are your only two options).
The “let’s use more plus sized models” and “stop Photoshop” conversations are still happening but after an interview with Vogue UK‘s EIC Alexandra Shulman over the weekend, there’s a lot more to talk about.
I hope you all enjoyed my first Throwback Thursday feature because the new CCF tradition is carrying on today. This time I decided not to do another designer but the most iconic fashion magazine instead (can’t you see I’m in the mag mood this week?) We all associate Vogue with Anna Wintour, but a lot was happening at the publication before her signature bob took over as EIC in 1988.

One of the most difficult things about this Ford editorial was figuring out what models to choose. It’s like picking a Chanel bag…they’re all beautiful so you really can’t go wrong, but you can’t have them all. But when it came to Skye, she was the first comp card I looked at and I knew right away she had to be included in this photoshoot.
