Rihanna for American Vogue April 2011 Cover + Behind the Scenes

Rihanna for American Vogue April 2011 Cover

Have you seen the latest issue of American Vogue? Rihanna, in Chanel, looks ravishing on this (long-overdue if I may add) cover.

Rihanna Vogue USA Cover April 2011 by Annie Leibovitz

I'm still recovering from Lady Gaga's marvelous March issue (one of my faves from Vogue as of late). Whoever spiked the watercooler on the 12th floor deserves a gold medal. One smashing issue after another, it's obvious that they've been drinking some major Kool-Aid.

Can't wait to get my hands on this one. Big kudos to Anna and her team. High-fives all around!

Bryanboy x Style: Magazine Singapore February 2011 Cover

Bryanboy x Style: Magazine Singapore February 2011 Cover

Funny, innit? After years of blogging about magazine covers and the people who star them, I'm now getting my own covers. My first magazine cover was for Germany's TUSH magazine (who I love very much). Style: Singapore gave me my second cover... and if you live there, you should be able to buy the February 2011 issue right now on the newstands.

Style: Magazine Singapore February 2011

Thank you so much Style: Singapore. It was a pleasure collaborating with you again.

So which magazine is gonna be the third one? Horse & Hound? :-P

Bryanboy for Vogue Nippon February 2011: The New Force - Bloggers Beat

Bryanboy for Vogue Nippon February 2011

February next year is gonna be an interesting month for me, magazine-wise. I was shot for the cover for a Singaporean fashion magazine a few weeks ago -- I can't wait for you to see the end result. It's a MASSIVE surprise and you'll be shocked.

Meanwhile, I took part at a shoot for the amazing folks at Vogue Nippon last year and now their February 2011 issue (Karen Elson in Prada cover) is out. Here's my double page spread for their editorial called "Bloggers Beat".

Speaking of Japan, I'm currently stranded at Tokyo Narita airport and I'm just passing time at the lounge. My connecting flight has been delayed. Wish me luck. I can't wait to go to my next destination.

Halle Berry for Vogue USA September 2010 Issue Cover

Halle Berry for Vogue USA September 2010 Issue Cover

Here it is... the cover we've all been waiting for. Forty three-year old Halle Berry is the star of American Vogue's September 2010 issue.

Halle Berry for American Vogue Cover September 2010

First impression: WOW!!!!

Second GLANCE: WOW!!!!

Third look: Woah, that is some SERIOUS jawline.... and the neck.

What a glamorous cover. The haircut suits her well, too. Very sharp.

However... I think I'm the only one who will say this but isn't she supposed to be a black woman? She looks a few shades lighter...

I can't wait to see the magazine in print. I love Halle Berry and of course, I love American Vogue.

Blast From British Vogue's Past

Blast From British Vogue's Past

Wow, my entry about Kate Moss' cover for British Vogue brought an influx of interesting emails. Thought I'd share this note from my reader John F., who also sent me photos of his favourite covers.

Hi Bryan.

I agree with your comments about British Vogue. I've been writing to them for about 2 years now asking for them to raise the bar on their creative side particularly with the covers. I believe British Vogue was at it's best in the late eighties and early nineties when Liz Tilberis was at the helm. Why to they always opt for the pretty celebrity blonde with the crowded hot pink or red typography? Some of my fave covers attached..

Love your blog

Out of his personal selection, I love this.

Those were the days eh?

Reminiscing the past from time to time is great but it's all about moving forward.

Meanwhile, click HERE to see a preview of what's inside the September 2010 issue of British Vogue. There's a gallery highlighting what's inside the magazine. I will, of course, pick up my copy because Vogue is Vogue is Vogue is Vogue afterall!

Kate Moss for British Vogue - September 2010 Cover

This, my dearest friends, is Kate Moss' 30th cover for British Vogue.

Kate Moss for September 2010 British Vogue

It's her sixth September cover.

Previously, Kate's been on the September 2000, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2009 issues of the magazine.

I think we all agree that she's a fashion icon through and through.

I love British Vogue and I know Kate's powerful prowess sells issues but come on...

I'm gonna be honest here. I look at that cover and there's no WOW factor. No element of surprise. It doesn't even spark my curiosity. In other words, it's the same old, same old, same old, same old... multiplied by a factor of thirty.

Yes, we'll most likely buy the magazine not because we see something exciting but because it's British Vogue and you have to get it to be informed.

I just think it's sad that we have to look elsewhere to get what we want from the magazines that we love...

Sometimes I wonder what the magazine industry would be like if everyone in present-day fashion publishing just vanished into thin air (all of them, the whole lot of them from top to bottom) and our favourite glossies got a clean slate...

With that being said, who wants to bet that Kate will be on the cover again on September 2011, September 2012, September 2014 and maybe September 2016?

Natalia Vodianova was shot by Paolo Roversi for the August 2010 cover of Vogue Korea. It's the magazine's 14th year anniversary.

In the same issue, the lovely folks at Vogue wrote an article about me and blogging.

Between you and me, I don't see myself sitting in between these two iconic women anytime soon but it's a cute photograph nonetheless.

Thank you so much Vogue Korea. I love you!

And special thanks to my reader Joanna from Seoul for sending me this photo.

Natasha Poly for Vogue Nippon September 2010 Cover

It's only mid-July and the September covers are starting to arrive online. Vogue Nippon featured my favourite model EVER, Natasha Poly on their September 2010 cover.

I'm curious what the cover looks like in real life because she looks photoshopped. I love the styling, nonetheless.

Update: It's Natasha Poly's 29th Vogue cover... and 7th Vogue cover this year. [via khryk]

Stunning eh? Vogue Russia never disappoints.

Meanwhile, did you hear the news that American Harper's Bazaar is featuring, hold on to your seats, Jennifer Aniston on their September issue cover? SHOCK, AWE, HORROR, GASP!

I threw up a little in my mouth when I read that online. Isn't that what, Jennifer Aniston's  878,949,939,904,009th cover? Way to go Harper's Bazaar for breaking ground and pushing the envelope with your oh-so-fresh cover choice. High-five!

Jake Gyllenhaal for GQ Magazine May 2010

How handsome is Jake Gyllenhaal? Jake is on the cover of the May 2010 issue of GQ Magazine. So hot, this man.

I must say he kinda looks like a younger version of George Clooney. Agree or disagree?

American Vogue November 1988 - Micaela Bercu

American Vogue November 1988

Speaking of number one, behold my latest acquisition: the November 1988 issue of American Vogue.

US Vogue November 1988 cover featuring Micaela Bercu

This is Anna Wintour's first issue as Editor-in-Chief of Vogue USA after replacing Grace Mirabella.

Micaela Bercu, in a Christian Lacroix haute couture jacket, was photographed by Peter Lindbergh who, as reported last month, is returning to the magazine after an eighteen-year hiatus. It's also the first time jeans appeared on the cover of the magazine.

I bought this (for $75 shipping included) on eBay after a crazy bidding war. I wasn't gonna let it go.

Trust me, every penny I've spent is worth this amazing piece of history.
