LOVE AND CHER
The title LOVE, splashed in bold colored letters, stands out against the jet black mane of Cher, her back to the camera. With the cover of one of “The Talents” issues featuring the words “Cher is back”, Love editor-in-chief Katie Grand celebrates the comeback of the iconic 69-year old star, who recently attended the Met Gala as Marc Jacob’s date and will star in the designer’s FW 2016 ad campaign. Shot by David Sims, the new issue of the bi-annual glossy breaks on July 27.
Similarly, another cover is dedicated to rock star Florence Welch of the Florence and the Machines band, whose latest album, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful is a major hit. Here, Sims zooms in on the singer’s unmade-up face, underscoring her natural hippie image. After her recent foot injury, Welch’s Gucci-clad stint at the Governor’s Ball last June already signaled how the singer is back in full force.
