Tilda Swinton by Glen Luchford for AnOther, Fall/Winter 2015-16

Tilda’s starring in a new movie called A Bigger Splash as a character named Marianne Lane, which is why that’s the name on the cover of the AnOther. The pictures inside, of Tilda in character, are, as Tilda pictures often are, positively Bowie’esque. Brunette Bowie! The only bummer about this issue is that the snoozefest that is Dakota Johnson also stars in the film, and she got like, three covers? WHO EVEN DOES THAT? What kind of world do we live in where we’re only given one Tilda cover of a magazine, but multiple Dakota Johnson covers? I can’t even remember what that poor girl looks like. I know, because every time I see her at an event or in a magazine I say, “Oh, who’s she?” or “Who’s that plain girl?” or “Is that girl with the brown hair from a tv show we don’t watch?” I have no Dakota Johnson recognition, but sure, give her three covers of an arty fashion magazine and allocate Tilda to just one. It’s fine! I’m fine!

I watch the Carol trailer every day to give me strength to carry on. It’s a masterpiece! Cate & Rooney look like they stepped directly out of a 1950s gay dream. Of course Todd Haynes is going to deliver us 1950s dreamy gay perfection. If you haven’t watched the trailer yet, before you read another word, go! Treat yourself! While you’re at it, go read the 1952 novel “The Price of Salt” by Patricia Highsmith (who also wrote The Talented Mister Ripley series) & treat yourself to even more gay beauty! Stop reading my stupid words! Read an entire book & get back to me!

There! Wasn’t it beautiful? Now we can continue. Cate Blanchett delivers some retro dame portrait realness in this small but stunning story for the T Style Magazine by Karim Sadli. The issue also features a fantastic shoot by the enchanting (and adorably named) Binx Walton by Glen Luchford. Bless us this season for two amazing Luchford editorials! (this and the Natalie Westling shoot from the Vogue Paris). Edie Campbell also stars as a fashion ghost in the misty countryside in a perfectly spooky shoot by Inez & Vinoodh. Autumn is the best! Fuck you summer!

Like the UK Vogue, the September Issue of Vogue Paris is strong, but not especially memorable. Nastha Poly & Lily Aldridge deliver a fierce Furiosa cover editorial by Mert & Marcus. Ruth Bell and David Sims work together on a bold nature shoot (I love Ruth’s shorn head, also Furiosa!). The absolutely enchanting Natalie Westling poses for a favourite autumnal photographer Glen Luchford and bewitches us with her strawberry curls. Finally, Raquel Zimmermann, who has been slaying every shoot she stars in this season, is a delight in a cheeky shoot by Inez & Vinoodh. So again, nothing that made me clutch my chest and gasp, but certainly nothing dull, and absolutely full of power.

Dazed and Confused did a spooky themed issue last year, marrying high fashion and the macabre in time for Halloween. It featured Chloe Moretz, who was fresh from her re-make of Stephen King’s Carrie as its raven haired, goth cover girl and was full of dark editorials.
