For the brand new shiny issue #7 Beauty Papers poses the question: What is Glamour?
An issue about Glamour needs the allure of conversation and here the honours range from legendary snapper Clive Arrowsmith to chic polymath Michael Roberts and the shimmering talent of gentleman makeup artist and creative and image director of Christian Dior Makeup Peter Philips. What would an issue about Glamour be without a star and here Cate Blanchett, photographed by award winning lensman Casper Sejersen, shows how the art of performance really can evoke the true beauty of subversion, especially when accented by the makeup brush of Morag Ross.
Other photographic explorations in the issue range from Katerina Jebb’s studies on the worship of Glamour through beauty aesthetics to Jamie Morgan’s fly boys—with hair bigger than a Karlheinz Weinberger portrait!—to a contemporary take on glamrock by the legendary photographer Paulo Roversi and seminal makeup artist, and Beauty Papers’ regular, Lucia Pieroni. So what was Beauty Papers’ conclusion on this rhinestone encrusted, lipstick quivering and Champagne sparkling journey into the realms of Glamour?
