Of Harper's Bazaar and KJ

I was at the MPH yesterday for my monthly kick of amazing editorial photo shoot in the magazines that available for some free reading. It's a past time habit that I picked up for the last past years. Every time when my craving for shopping arises, I'd rush to the book store and flick through pages and pages of magazines such as Vogue, Elle and Harper's Bazaar. Their editorial fashion spread never fail to impress me especially Vogue; be it American, French or German Vogue. So yesterday, I was browsing through the latest Harper's Bazaar (cover: Stephanie Chai)



and when I flipped over at the back, I saw a familiar face. A young politician to be exact; it's our own Khairy Jamaluddin on the cover of the inaugural issue of Harper's Bazaar Man!




He looks not bad right? I never knew that politician can be this polish and fashionable (and good looking). Honestly how many politician that we know are sharp, fashionable and good looking? Ok, J.F. Kennedy was an exception. We just love Jackie O. So just to be clear, I don't fancy KJ (or his political views) or anything ok! I'm not finish with the magazine yet but I love love the Fall/Winter ad campaigns of Fendi (feat. Jessica Stam-if I'm not mistaken), Tod's (the bag featured in the ad is TDF!, like totally) and I know this is not something new, the Louis Vuitton ad featuring Buzz Aldrin, Sally Ride and Jim Lovell. Love love the photo (and the bag featured as well).



It was taken by the famous Anne Leibovitz, a name that needs no introduction. If anyone of you didn't know, she was the one who took the infamous Demi Moore naked photo while she was pregnant with one of her daughters.

And yes, out of blue I also bought a malay wedding magazine *cringe* that costs me about 3 copies of Harper's Bazaar that turned out to be so crappy. I don't like 80% of the bridal wear featured except those from Jovian Mandagie. The pelamin or dais are either too much, too eleborate, too colourful, too much of accessories. All in all they are nothing but over the top. I don't see the the need of buying such magazine in the future. Plus, the price is also expensive! I'd rather spend the same amount of money on Vogue or Elle, which in terms of photo and overall content are much much higher in quality.
