i-D March 2009 – Cool Britannia


The March 2009 edition of i-D magazine features the Best Of British.

12 of our most regarded models, make up 12 covers shot by Sølve Sundsbø. There is a mix of legendary models like Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Twiggy, Stella Tennant, Susie Bick and Yasmin LeBon. With the newer breed including Lily Donaldson, Agyness Deyn, Alice Dellal, Daisy Lowe, Jourdan Dunn and newbie Eliza Cummins.

All seem to be winking, maybe as a reference to the ‘i’ in i-D.

I will be undecided between buying Kate’s and Jourdan’s.


Last April Agyness Deyn made i-D history by appearing on 6 covers.

    All the models and celebrities who have appeared on the cover of this gorgeous magazine (the best English mag at the moment, imho) wink, because they reproduce the winking smiley i-D.

    oh thanks superqueen, now i get it. i like agyness’s hair – she doesnt seem to look like a boy anymore. daisy’s face seem bloated.

    “All seem to be winking, maybe as a reference to the ‘i’ in i-D.”

    Every single cover of ID has the models right eye covered or obscured in some way – it has been this way since the first ever issue.

    I don’t get Kate Moss and what’s special about her, never have, and to me she’s the most uninteresting cover here.

    Jourdan Dunn looks great on the other hand. Agyness looks sexy as hell. And Twiggy, is still wowing us after all this years.

    i love i-D!!!!

    well i don’t buy them every issue but many (as much as i can afford lol)

    anyway im torn betwern Lily D., Dellal, Kate and Naomi.
    im a big big big fan of lily D. (dont really know why either)
    but Dellal cover looks very powerful. kate and naomi are legends…so! undecided!

    FC i get what u mean about daisy being a “model”….
    soooo unimpressed with that cover shot
    ive always loved loved loved kate moss. but because twiggy is legendary, its a toss up between the two….

    ~*juDee*~, you can’t even understand how angry I am that she is a part of this group of real models.

    She icks me so much. So unworthy of this.

    Those are simply stunning covers..the only thing i cant get past on is why they put Daisy Lowe among some of the models of the best caliber..she just looks off..but i personally don’t like her even when she is supposedly on. Naomi, Lily, Twiggy and, needless to say, Daisy are my least favourite while i love Stella, Yasmin for the old school and Alice and Eliza (who looks a lot like a young Drew Berrymore) rapresenting the newbies. Agyness is looking the sexiest she has ever looked, Kate is just uber cool and Jourdan looks beautifully ethereal even though i much prefer her first i-D cover.

    gorgeous covers, but daisy lowe WTF sahe isnt is barely even a model. plus her cover is UGLY.

    the rest of them are amazing, i LOVE twiggys cover and agyness looks stunning.

    but damn naomi is mighty fine, but when did she cut her hair?

    i want all those covers ezcept for daisy.

    WHAT?! No Coco? Blasphemy!

    Not only did she provide the best quote, but also one perfect picture.
    Fuck me Agy! So good!

    I SERIOUSLY want to frame that cover!

  13. Ernie February 12, 2009 at 22:26 #

    Buy Jourdan’s!

    And word on Daisy’s cover. Thankfully she got her due, her cover is the worst by far, she looks like a punch victim.

    Yasmin Le Bon doesn’t age. I’m so jeaaalous.

  15. Ruthless MEME February 13, 2009 at 11:17 #

    I like the Agyness Deyn one……

  16. drinkupthefashion February 13, 2009 at 22:11 #

    yeah, all i-D covers either have the cover model winking or having one eye covered some way or another. i really love these covers. however yasmin le bon’s wink looks really weird. it’s like they took a picture of her with both her eyes closed and then one with her eyes open normally and pasted a closed eye in so that it looks like she’s winking. and i hate daisy’s bangs. but everyone else looks so amazing.

    For me the best is Agyness Deyn, the look is spectacular!
    I dont like the face of Yasmin Le Bon, the blinking is artificial …
