Making The Cover – July 2010

Gone are the days of the Supermodel.

I can confidently say that the advertisement world killed them all!

This post I decided to gather up my fav mag covers for July 2010. I noticed the lack of models and replacement of celebs.


Lucky for Kate Moss I think she is “the last of a dying breed.” Tyra Banks recently said that your chance of becoming a model was as great as getting struck by lightning, and I agree.

With brands looking to become these mega brands, how could you sell your product with the face of a model? They barely exist. And you wonder why we are all obsessed with celebrities – they are everywhere.

Take a look at all the covers I loved for the month of July (all Hey Bella approved). I searched for models … I couldn’t find them??

Kelly Rowland on South Africa Cosmo (I didn’t even know Cosmo had international editons)
