Fashion Diaries: Cover Girl

Written on April 20, 2012 at 2:06 pm , by

Now that our May 2012 issue is out on newsstands (happy 20th anniversary to us!), you’ve all gotten to see how awesome our cover girl, Elle MacPherson, looks. I hope I’m lucky enough to look as hot as she is when I’m 48! Wishful thinking? I think so.

The fashion team absolutely loved working with Elle. She was super-easy going, looked AH-MAZ-ING in everything we put her in (which always makes our job that much more fun!), and her laid back, surfer girl vibe made the set a fun place to be.

Since we want you to look as hot as Elle this summer, we’ve decided to share with you all of the buying information for the pieces that Elle sported on our duel covers. We hope you love it, as much as we do!

FITNESS Cover Model on “The Bachelor”

Written on January 4, 2012 at 4:30 pm , by

In case any of you watched the premiere of “The Bachelor” on Monday night and kept thinking the gorgeous model, Courtney, looked familiar…you were right. The 28 year-old brunette stunner was on the cover of our April 2011 issue!

Argy Koutsothanasis, our Fashion Director, remembers Courtney’s photo shoot well, which took place nearly a year ago at the El Conquistador Resort in Puerto Rico. Courtney was a last-minute fill-in for the cover photo shoot and was booked just days before flying out.

“It was her first-ever magazine cover shoot and she seemed more nervous than the other two girls who were being considered,” Argy says. “But even though she hadn’t quite found her groove as a model yet, you couldn’t tell once the final photos came in.”

The Oakley bikini Courtney wore for the cover was chosen by the stylists because it complimented her athletic figure. Argy also revealed that Courtney “had a hard time doing ‘sexy,’ at the time.”

She must’ve worked on it, because she certainly has some smoldering looks on the hit reality TV show! As for her flattering figure, Courtney reportedly ate healthier than some models do, and was “definitely into working out.”

A few more pics of the model who is turning Ben Flajnik’s head and (probably) making other contestants jealous:
