Cover Talk: Facing the Zeitgeist – Justin Bieber + Lara Stone

Cover Talk: Facing the Zeitgeist – Justin Bieber for LOVE + Lara Stone for Vogue Paris

The Bieber strikes again! From Graydon Carter's Vanity Fair to Katie Grand's LOVE, and Total Girl, Seventeen and Teen Vogue in between, no glossy cover is safe from the 16-year-old be-fringed one. He's like the Tavi Gevinson (herself featured in no fewer than two Teen Vogue spreads for Feb) of the pop music scene. 

Meanwhile, while new editor Emmanuelle Alt is rumoured to be debuting with Gisele Bundchen shot in St Barts by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matatin, Carine Roitfeld's obsession with Lara Stone continues with one of her final covers for Vogue Paris.

"If you are selling a fashion magazine, you have to show a lot of clothes," Roitfeld told Deborah Ross. "The first thing we always think is not the brand, but the woman, the model."

If you missed Ross' entertaining profile of the inimitable (though-many-try) and frank Roitfeld in Good Weekend, you can read it here.

'facing the zeitgeist' is just a perfect title for the post. talking about the movement of ages, i love it when magazines stay true to their true essences, not trying to get famous by trying hard to go with the so-called popularity stream.

Lara stone is an uncommon beauty, and i always appreciate roitfeld's taste in women. she knows how to pick memorable faces, and turn just any ordinary woman into a gorgeous, mystical model.

moreover, i can't stand Justin and tavi, though. it's not like because i think they're just, like, kids, but they're really overrated. some people may notify tavi as a 'genius' kid in fashion, but they cannot run from the fact that she's just a teenager with signature oversized ribbons. same case goes with bieber: he's merely a victim of publicity, and the one who slowly melts into nothing. nothing's hot about losing oneself, i think

i love how your posts are always so profound !

have a great day erica !
