Conde Nast’s Bold Move: LOVE Magazine
As magazines try to survive the economy and evolving tastes of their audience, Conde Nast UK daringly launches a style magazine that offers up a new version of sexy – LOVE Magazine. A nude Beth Ditto, singer and gossip columnist for The Guardian, graces the mint green cover with flaming red hair and bubblegum pink tutu to match – the caption reads “Icons of Our Generation”.
The bi-annual publication covers style and celebrities, with a noticeable emphasis on edgy and fashion-forward photography. LOVE editor Katy Grand on Beth Ditto for the cover: “Everything about the way that Beth looks reminds us not of her imperfections but our own. She has self-assurance and confidence by the truckload. She is happy with who she is and the way she is. Don’t we all wish that we woke up in the morning and felt like that?”
