British Vogue’s March 2008 issue is a record breaker. Kate Moss is on her 25th cover, and it is the biggest March issue ever for the fashion bible, coming in at a reported 430 pages with 282 devoted to ads.
The cover, photographed by Craig McDean features Moss in Dolce & Gabanna, with a rather artistic turn for a cover background. The one picture above right is said to be a mock up, with the one on the left being the real thing – we’ll have to wait for confirmation when the issue hits stands on Monday. Accompanying the cover, Moss also features in a 14 page editorial spread photographed by McDean inside the magazine.
“It’s a surprisingly big issue given the fluidity in the retail environment,” said the Vogue publisher, Stephen Quinn. “I gave my team a Churchillian talk the other morning which was, ‘Take no prisoners. Don’t get yourselves into a recession mood by thinking that there will be cuts.'”
Well what do you think of the (real) cover?[Via TFS]
