The W Magazine September 2012 issue features a Game Of Thrones inspired editorial, aptly titled Dame Of Thrones, rivaling that of LOVE Magazine’s Downton Abbey shoot. The magic duo of model Kristen McMenamy and photographer Tim Walker combine once again to produce a masterful piece of subtle extravagance.
The background scenery reminds me of the editorial starring Tilda Swinton by Tim Walker for W Magazine August 2011, which incidentally was also styled by Jacob K who nails this one. The styling here was just simply immaculate; I mean how do you find the most perfect pieces for an editorial like this?

LOVE Magazine Issue #7 is out in stores now and what caught my eye was this awe-inspiring editorial spread featuring Kristen McMenamy. Titled The Origin Of Monsters, Kristen McMenamy is shot by the extravagant Tim Walker with the fantastical use of larger than life insects as props. This peculiar theme is then further brought to life with deconstruction styling done by Katie Grand, making this one mysterious and eerie editorial. Check out the rest of the LOVE MAgazine Issue #7 editorial featuring Kristen McMenamy by Tim Walker below.
And if you are guessing who is on the cover or should I say covers –which I will not be featuring here as they did not excite me as much as this editorial– it is none other than Linda Evangelista who reportedly “cost LOVE Magazine a fortune”. The only other cover features Lara Stone and Kate Moss together. Check out both covers on the LOVE Magazine Facebook page.

What Lies Beneath is the title of it photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot’s 28-page editorial in Love Magazine #6. Styled by Love Magazine Editor-in-Chief Katie Grand, What Lies Beneath starring Mariacarla Boscono, Saskia De Brauw, Kristen McMenamy, Anais Pouliot, Lara Stone, Guinevere Van Seenus, Paul Boche, Xiao Wen Ju, Jed Texas and Angus Whitehead, comes with an accompanying fashion film that also marks Mert and Marcus’ first ever fashion video.
Much has been said about the source of inspiration for What Lies Beneath that is stunningly dark and visually poignant. Plagiarism or inspiration? These two issues only matter to the parties involved and serious fashion folk. To the average consumer/viewer, what matters are visually stunning images, period. Mert and Marcus’ What Lies Beneath editorial and film for Love Magazine #6 showcased that and that’s all I have to say.
View the full What Lies Beneath editorial by Mert and Marcus for Love Magazine #6.
LOVE Magazine Issue 6 is now out in stores and LOVE Magazine has finally released images of all 8 covers of its supernatural-themed Issue 6. The first three covers starring Elle Fanning, Chloë Moretz and Hailee Steinfeld have already been released and are now in stores. The remaining five special edition covers starring Lara Stone, Nyasha Matonhodze, Mariacarla Boscono, Kristen McMenamy and Daphne Groeneveld will be out in stores on September 1st. All LOVE Magazine Issue 6 covers were shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
The question now is which cover to get. I’m leaning towards Mariacarla Boscono or Elle Fanning. They are all stunning in their own right and it seems that fashion folk cannot stop seeing enough of in-demand photographers, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott’s stunning visuals.
