Magazine Glam: Rihanna for W Magazine, Precious star Gabourey Sidibe for V Magazine’s Size Issue
Friday, January 15, 2010
I’m addicted to huge fashion glossies, among other things. So I’m thrilled to share with you the latest covers of two of my favorite mags, W Magazine and V Magazine.
As much as I love Rihanna, I have to start with V Magazine’s Size Issue. With all the buzz surrounding January’s V Magazine—and those incredible spreads, the cover has to be just as special, right? Right. With double covers featuring “Precious” star, Gabourey Sidibe (that movie was so touching) and Dakota Fanning (looking very Twiggy-like), the V Magazine editors have successfully relayed the message that every size is beautiful.
I especially love Gabourey’s cover. I’ve never seen her look more gorgeous and glamorous. It really goes to show that beauty has no size limit.

And now for Rihanna, her February 2010 W Magazine cover and spread, shot by Craig McDean and styled by Lori Goldstein, is to-die-for!!! Seriously, the leopard-print Lola hat almost knocked me out cold when I saw the photo on my blackberry.
Wearing Gucci, Prada and Michael Kors in clean black and white shots, Rihanna solidifies her place as a high-fashion favorite. In python coats, leopard print hats and studded fingerless half-gloves, Rihanna continues to venture into bad-girl territory with her fusion of glamor, grit and goth.
I wonder if Anna Wintour feels she missed the boat by allegedly denying Rihanna the American Vogue cover after her nude photos hit the web. Oh well, looking hot is the best revenge, indeed!
