The Maggies, magazine awards for UK publications, had its annual awards ceremony last night. The overall winner for Best Cover and the winner of the best fashion category was this: Sienna Miller on the cover of GQ. I have to admit that I don’t really get why this was such a popular cover. Sienna looks great (although she should avoid feathers after the disgrace that was her Vogue September issue cover), and the colors are appealing, but it just doesn’t scream fashion to me. It’s not particularly daring, or innovative, or unusual: it’s a pretty starlet in sexy clothes, but not much else. Grace Coddington has better visions in her nightmares.
Do you agree? Or do you think I’m totally wrong and want to educate me on the brilliance of this cover?
