Pop Music and Fashion Magazines

Rihanna's Vogue Cover
Lady Gaga: style icon of the music world
What is it with the fashion world’s fascination with pop and R&B singers? The answer is pretty simple. I mentioned a week ago, in my Pretty Passion, Fine Fashion post, that designers find awards ceremonies a good way to promote their latest collections. In today’s consumerist society we watch celebrities’ every move. Sites like Twitter make it easier than ever to do so. We are so influenced by what these people do that we, either knowingly or unknowingly find products endorsed by them more appealing. They are like Gods who have taken human form.

Pop Magazine
One of the main perks of being a singer is that you can get away with wearing totally weird, wacky and wonderful outfits in all your music videos. Lady Gaga, Queen of Music Fashion says “I'm mostly inspired by shapes, and using the body to create iconography. Leather culture and high-street punk fashion. I would say perfecto jackets occupy most of my fashion thoughts.” Gaga has built herself up as a brand using fashion. If she does not dress as she does then she would be like any other singer of this generation.

Adele's Vogue Cover
Another successful artist is Rihanna, who was Vogue’s cover girl for November 2011. In the photos for the magazine, she had blonde hair and wore grown up, sophisticated outfits. Adele was the magazine’s cover girl for October 2011. I was proud of Vogue for featuring a girl with curves on the cover. She is really beautiful and a true inspiration.

I have never purchased Pop magazine but it is one of those magazines that looks so nice, like Love or Vogue. This is because their covers are so stylish. In the past they have featured Sienna Miller, Drew Barrymore, Lindsay Lohan, Jourdan Dunn, Tavi Gevinson, Naomi Campbell, Elton John, Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears and many, many more.
