July 2012 magazine coversWritten By Laila Lu on Jul 9th, 2012
Rock The Trend monthly round-up of all major magazine covers + editorial highlights – see all the Vogues, the Numeros, the Ws – at a glance! Several July issues have already sneaked in Fall/Winter 12/13 pieces… check out all the new looks fresh right here!
Remember Gucci‘s Fall/Winter 12/13 gothic glamour collection? Vogue Italia and Steven Meisel sets the dark mood for Fall with Erjona Ala, Elena Bartels, Julia Nobis, Lida Fox, Mackenzie Drazan, Vanessa Axente all looking funeral-ready in Gucci Fall/Winter 12/13 gowns, eerily posing/playing with some swings in a room? The full spread can be found here. Katy Perry also has a solo spread inside donning a blonde bob wig in a huge mint green room.
Emma Stone has officially graduated from the class of Teen Vogue (September 2011 cover girl) to a true VOGUE star. Looking super sexy in a “I just got out of bed” way wearing a lacey Nina Ricci look from Fall 2012, the Spiderman star made a pretty impressive VOGUE debut. Lara Stone and Joan Smalls both appeared in the editorial “Risky Business” which showcases eighties-influenced power wardrobe with an ultramodern rethink—with minimalist planes of pure color and slicks of shiny leather. Check out the full spread here.
