Muse magazine has done a series of covers for its “muses” edition – but this Gisele one, despite my lukewarm feelings for the Brazilian bombshell, has to be my favourite. Just a stunning piece of cover art, and totally enough to make me buy the magazine. (Am I the only person who buys glossy magazines to flick through? I can’t remember the last time I properly read a fashion magazine, bar Vogue, my feelings on which I’ve already detailed).

Then, Amanda Seyfried on the cover of Interview magazine. I read a copy of Interview one day in the hairdresser and I have to say it contained some of the best piece on modern celebrity I’ve read in ages. Anyway this particular issue will be mine because of Seyfried, who I love not because of that terrible movie she did where they all just got to go on holiday for a few weeks, but because of her star turn in Big Love. I wish she’d come back in season five. This is just such a striking look from her, though, and not the usual “blonde bombshell” mould that magazines and the media in general tries to shove her into. Seyfried is different, at least looks-wise, and this shoot is really embracing that.

Thoughts?
