W Magazine's 40th Anniversary = 4 Covers!

Congratulations & Besos to W Magazine on achieving 40 years of setting the standard & for continuously pushing the boundaries by playing by your own rules.  What better way to usher in their 40th anniversary than recruit 4 of fashion's favorite Hollywood faces to cover their November issue.

The unique creative direction of each of the 4 covers highlighting a specific fashion era of focus for each was the perfect tone to showcase the great impact of history that this magazine has documented.  Initially it was difficult for me to decide which cover was my overall favorite because how can you not love the perfect bob and styling perfection of Rooney Mara? But for some reason I just could not get passed the fact that there is just something that is off about her make-up.  Keira Knightley looked very polished and the acid blonde hair-do was very invoking, but again more could have been done with her make-up (and yes I'm no beauty expert and don't tout to be but it just doesn't look that flattering).

Based on my style mantra of Edgy, Comfy, Chic you would automatically assume that Scarlett Johansson's nod to the 1990's grunge era would be my natural favorite, but again the styling is on point but the hair and make-up give her a more vampy look and that is something I just can't get behind.   The best of the bunch for me was Mia Wasikowska's ode to the club kid of the 1980's.  Orange hair, technicolor make-up, and that Balenciaga print all cohesively sync so well together.
