Abbey Lee & Karmen Pedaru ph by Mariano Vivanco


L’Officiel Singapore October ’09(2nd Anniversary issue)


Frizzy red hair, Burberry coats, double the fierce models… can you see the similarity? Rip-off or just plain inspired… between two different magazine empires?

    Things that make you go hmm…

  • lenore

    it’s obviously a blatant rip-off.

  • TraiT

    Wow… L’officiel sg never fails to amaze… The similarities is just…

  • AMB

    I like them both for different reasons. Numero Korea’s cover has stronger colors (the hair color itself grabs your attention) while L’Officiel Singapore’s cover is more fashion-focused. Nonetheless, it is interesting how similar they both look.

    Who are the photographers & stylists for those shoots?

  • NumeroUno

    So obvious L’Officiel SG is blatantly imitating Numero Korea. The Numero photoshoot is far superior in all aspects.

  • X-Wen

    wow. great observation.

  • Bhisan

    ahhhh oooooohhh

    reminds of a mulberry ad campaign

  • Test Shoot Gallery

    Numero choice of clothes, composition, styling, beauty and hair direction are so much better .. but I’m not so sure about having charcoal eyes and mauve lip!?!?

  • aaron

    meh. i’d call this a rip. LOL. the original cover isn’t old or groundbreaking enough to be truly INSPIRATIONAL.
