We have been spoiled with supermodel extravaganzas on September issues, and it looks like Interview has zero intention of lagging behind. For its September issue, the magazine is offering us a choice of six covers, three of them featuring supermodels, while the other three star actresses.
For the “Photographers Issue,” the publication hired Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott to shoot Naomi Campbell. Craig McDean shot Amber Valletta and Mikael Jansson picked Daria Werbowy. The actress covers feature Léa Seydoux by Peter Lindbergh, Nicole Kidman by Steven Klein and Keira Knightley by Patrick Demarchelier. Is this as great as it sounds? Well, our forum members sure think so.
“Interview comes to save this boring September,” swooned Marc10. “Spectacular covers, each one represents each photographer really well. Amber and Keira’s are my favorites, Daria’s being the weakest. She looks… rough.”
Daria’s cover seems to be the most controversial one with several members declaring it their favorite or least favorite of the set.
MissMagAddict is a fan of the cover. “Daria’s is by far the best for me,” she posted.
Contrary to that, Benn98 wrote: “This is it!! The best offering for September, thanks Interview! All the covers except 1 does it for me. Daria really looks much too haggard and the forehead looks so leather-ey, and I actually prefer mature women on covers. Perhaps it’s time for her to take another break.”
That last statement is, perhaps, an overreaction. But out of the model covers, Daria’s is the least striking one to me, too. My favorite covers star Amber (pictured above) and Naomi. Which cover gets you most excited? See all the covers and join the lively discussion on the forums.
