no not de la renta. the little gold statuette. oscar winners are taking over the october magazines this year. first up on w, cate blanchett looks gorgeous wearing nothing but a white shirt, water and sand. i was a bit disappointed not to see her in couture (she wears it so well), but her last w cover was in 2001, so any cover is better than none. inside, they brought out the big guns as there are eds with kate (by mert and marcus), daria (by steven klein) and a bevy of beauties including hilary rhoda, liya kebede, missy rayder, sasha pivovarova, and natasha poly by david sims.
the cover of elle looks like what i wanted the september issue to be, with the most lovely shot of reese witherspoon i have seen in a long time. effortless hair, makeup and styling, and a lovely dress. inside there’s a tribute to dior featuring victoria’s secret angel izabel goulart, a feature on alber elbaz, and an ed on personal style, shot by alexei hay and featuring veronica webb, sienna and savannah miller, jennifer jason leigh and erin featherston. both issues are definitely worth picking up.
