the a-list.


nicole kidman and daniel craig are on the cover of february’s w, the annual a-list issue. they are promoting their new movies the invasion (loosely based on invasion of the body snatchers) and the golden compass. nicole is obviously on the a-list, having won an oscar, received numerous nominations, and is one of the highest paid actresses around. craig is an up-and-comer, and his last movie casino royale showcased his charm, action ability, and charisma.

the accompanying images are very nice…the shots of nicole are emotional and daniel has such a rugged “marlboro man” face…

as it is the a-list issue, w has chosen people in different genres that are at the top of their games. one such selection is uber-stylist rachel zoe, who in my opinion is actually on the way down after her recent split with major client nicole richie. another pic is raquel welch, whose star is rising after m.a.c. selected her to design a celebrity makeup line, and she’ll be making appearances during couture week. long live the bombshell!

also in the issue is a very interesting editorial, “breaking news”, shot by philip-lorca dicorcia and styled by camilla nickerson. in it, models jessica stam, querelle jansen and hilary rhoda play news reporters mixing it up with actual news reporters, including ones from philadelphia, washington d.c., and new york.
