Blue crush

Six months after an explosion of hype over New Zealand’s Olivia O’Driscoll, which included mention of gigs for international magazines, haute couture shows in Paris – and a potential Prada show exclusive, which never eventuated – the upwardly-mobile Kiwi has scored a second (after NZ's Pilot, tks Isaac) glossy cover. Here is a preview of the winter 2009 cover of Australasian mag KAREN, due out next week. And what a cover. Shot by Charles Howells, the hallmark feature of makeup artist Sarah Laidlow's beauty look is a pair of blue smackers courtesy Sweet Georgia Brown. "I wanted something very classically beautiful and modern, I wanted it to pop on the stand" KAREN's editor in chief Marian Simms told frockwriter. "Everyone is feeling that times are bleak and I wanted to have a bit of celebration”. The issue includes Jessica Hart and teams photographers Michele Aboud and Sonny Vandevelde with stylists Geoffrey Burger Nolan and Michael Azzollini.

That cover is absolutely fantastic! Reminds me of a modern take on Nova magazine.

I liked everything about it, until the Italian word for asshole was mentioned, near the end.
