Honestly? Here is the reason that these days, I’m rarely blown away by the American edition of Vogue. Jennifer Lawrence’s pictures are pretty, sure… pretty boring. And it’s the September issue, where the fashion should be breathtaking, gorgeous and out-of-this-world – not lame and dull like in this spread (I mean, in the cover picture you can’t even see what the girl is wearing, for crying out loud). Sure, you could argue that the photographs accompany an article about an actress and that it’s not a fashion spread, but I would say that you’re wrong, since it’s Vogue, not a movie magazine, and readers want to see clothes, no matter what. At least Lawrence looks like herself and isn’t excessively photoshopped, I guess? But is this really now where we’re at? That we’re happy that the person depicted is recognizable? I read somewhere that Anna Wintour should go helm a political magazine or newspaper. And you know what, that wouldn’t be the worst idea. American Vogue is in desperate need of a breath of fresh air.Jennifer Lawrence by Mario Testino for Vogue US September 2013 6Jennifer Lawrence by Mario Testino for Vogue US September 2013 1Jennifer Lawrence by Mario Testino for Vogue US September 2013 2Jennifer Lawrence by Mario Testino for Vogue US September 2013 3Jennifer Lawrence by Mario Testino for Vogue US September 2013 4Jennifer Lawrence by Mario Testino for Vogue US September 2013 5
