Musings on Muse # 22

Muse is a magazine I often admire but rarely buy. Firstly, it's £12 and it's not a very consistent publication. It usually has three different covers - generally featuring models, until it shot the weird Lindsay Lohan as Jesus story. But the new issue is amazing.

Perfect Covers

It's a battle of the bombshells with Gisele, Isabeli and Angela. I love the variations in the cover, how sensual Gisele's is and the nice touch of graphic art on Angela's cover. Styling seems to give way to beautiful models in simple but effective poses. These are always my favourite type of covers.

The inside content offers a mix of new faces, rising stars and established supermodels. Ruby Aldridge makes one of her first major publication editorial appearance:

Shot by Sebastian Kim I like how moody and stormy the editorial is compared to the light florals on the cover. I can't wait to see the rest of this shoot.

The Rising Star: Eniko

Eniko is absolutely everywhere at the moment, every new magazine I pick up she's there; on the cover of V, inside V and in the new publication Gentlewoman. I must say I prefer these black and white and simple editorials compared to her usual bombshell mode. She has such an interesting face that is full of expression that she doesn't need to be a bombshell at all times. Her work in this style is some of my favourite. It would be such a shame if Eniko is relegated to Victoria's Secret style modelling, as she is so much more than that.

The Uber Models:


The issue seems like a title weight prize between three of the best models of our generation, it's impossible to pick a favourite as all of their editorials are as strong as each others. With Gisele acting as Brigitte Bardot, Isabeli roaming along the beach and Angela as a hippie all soft lighting and transparent florals. I don't know how I'm going to pick a favourite!
