Tilda Swinton For AnOther Magazine Spring/Summer 2009

My love and complete obsession admiration for Tilda Swinton is no secret.

She has a kooky sense of style that I adore, and she’s one of the most fearless women on the planet when it comes to fashion.

Can you imagine Jennifer Aniston doing this editorial? Errr No.

The editorial was shot by Craig McDean, and the designers were even more outlandish than usual.

The breath-taking designs are by Mark Fast, Mary Katrantzou, Sandra Backlund, Peter Pilotto, Louise Goldin.

My particular favourite being the fuchsia Craig Lawrence creation.

We are not worthy Tilda.

Beyonce Knowles For Vogue US April 2009

I waited and waited for the Beyonce Knowles’ Vogue US April 2009 editorial. I don’t know what I was expecting, but when I finally saw it, I felt quite disappointed.

B was photographed by Mario Testino, but I still feel totally uninspired by her shoot. The shots are quite dull. Maybe because this shoot is all about Beyonce and not Sasha. Sasha has a bit of an edge to her.

With regards to the cover, many bloggers are asking the question: Is Beyoncé’s Vogue cover racist?

Sociological Images blogger said:

“For the second time this year, the Vogue cover features a woman of color, Beyonce. Unfortunately, in line with cultural stereotypes, the issue is the ‘Shape Issue,’ contributing to the stereotype of Black women, and Latina women too, as especially ‘curvy’….”

I look forward to the day when we’re not shocked by a woman of colour being on the cover for Vogue 2 months in a row, and these types of questions are not asked. Until then, I’ll just look at the pretty pictures.
