NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Many ladies love their handbags and will spend a lot of money for the latest and greatest, but a new study says what is inside those bags may be covered in germs worse than what you’ll find in the bathroom.
Tired of the exhausting chilly winter already? Don’t worry – spring is around the corner, and magazines are right there with you. Spring and summer designs that premiered on the catwalks in September are back for the rescue in February magazine issues around the world. Take a look at some of the standouts so far!
Clemence Poesy by David Oldham for Glamour UK The Parisian beauty effortlessly creates a sensational editorial for Glamour’s February issue, making these spring dresses look better than they ever have before. Her Harry Potter role seems far, far away right now.
Dakota Fanning by David Slijper for Elle UK Dakota shines in Miu Miu, Prada, Louis Vuitton and other spring designs that blend splendidly with her silky skin. But where's Elle?
Karlie Kloss by Hedi Slimane for Vogue Japan February 2012 Our dear Karlie again refuses to put her clothes completely back on for Vogue Japan. She may be thin, but she can eat more cereal than you can.
Iris Strubegger by Miles Aldridge for Vogue Germany An intriguing and slightly creepy editorial featuring several androgynous looks between the models, involving shades of color, and standing in odd places.
Rihanna by Ellen Von Unwerth for Glamour Russia WHAT? Rihanna is back to red hair? Pick a weave and stay with it, girl!
Romee Strijd by Daniel Jackson in Vogue UK Up-and-coming young Dutch model Romee scores a space in a British Vogue editorial – I can see her scoring major fashion shows in the near future!
Magdalena Frackowiak by Sharif Hamza for Vogue Nippon This spring queen is featured alongside a multitude of shades of spring designs in the upcoming Vogue Nippon issue. I will never get tired of seeing Magdalena’s face in a magazine.
Candice Swanepoel by Terry Richardson in Harper's Bazaar It wouldn’t be a Terry Richardson editorial without a bit of hooch, but the Victoria’s Secret Angel turns it out, showing us how sports equipment really works.
Coco Rocha by Max Abadian for Flare Canada’s favorite model supports Canadian designers by doing that special posing je ne sais quoi that Coco does best in this upcoming issue of Flare magazine. Expect some Joe Fresh, Greta Constantine, Jeremy Laing, Pink Tartan and many more Canadian designs that showed at LG Fashion Week in Toronto last September.
Demi Moore by Cedric Buchet for Harper's Bazaar US Demi is looking…still too good for her age in her return in Harper’s Bazaar. Here's the proof she powered through the drama.
Elle Fanning by Sebastian Kim for Teen Vogue We’ve discussed how much we love Elle Fanning at Ology in the past and we still can’t get enough of her! Her latest editorial in Teen Vogue is perfection.
Marloes Horst & Kendra Spears by Nicole Bentley for Vogue Australia The two stunners team up to sports spring/summer 2012 designs ranging from Louis Vuitton, to Alexander Wang, Armani, Jil Sander, and even Christopher Kane.
Julia Stegner by Greg Kadel for Vogue Germany Julia is looking sensual-chic in the upcoming issue of Vogue Germany. Wearing all whites with a fair amount of topless shots, she is embodying the sultry woman in this grayscale editorial. Let’s not leave the sex hair out, though.
Daphne Groeneveld / Josh Olins / Vogue China Here is a LQ preview of Daphne’s upcoming editorial in Vogue China; this girl is literally never slowing down. Darting from campaign to campaign, Daphne is quickly on the road to becoming one of the top models in the business. We can hear Ologist and super-fan Chelsea Bell shrieking in delight.
Christina Aguilera by Tesh for Marie Claire US Xtina has been getting her fair share of attention lately – from her role on The Voice to her increasing body weight to a rumored upcoming single for a new album. This over-photoshoped editorial and cover in the February issue of MarieClaire isn’t helping her case either. Maybe it looks better in print? (always the optimist!)
Where’s Lara Stone? I know, I am asking myself the same question. Tweet me those thoughts @wtfmichel!
