Love Magazine Pays An Homage to Minnie Mouse
Judging from the current Love cover, the illustrious magazine isn’t quite through 2011 & 2012′s imaginary creatures as fashion icons thing. For the tome’s 5th anniversary, the powers-that-be have taken their spin on the famous Herb Ritts’ Madonna in mouse ears shoot sans the pop diva.
The result is a series of six covers featuring models Cara Delevingne, Georgia May Jagger, Edie Campbell, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Chiharu Okunugi all sporting Minnie Mouse ears, as well as the Disney icon herself.
To add another haute couture element, the mouse-ear headbands used in the Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot snapped shoot were the offerings of such illustrious designers as Gucci, Miu Miu, and Marc by Marc Jacobs.
Love editor Katie Grand blamed Instagram for the inspiration. “As work began on this issue, that famous Herb Ritts shot of Madonna popped up on my Instagram feed, the one where she’s in bed wearing the Minnie Mouse ears,” Grand claimed. “So we set about getting my favorite models in Minnie Mouse ears. . . . But that wasn’t enough. We had to get Minnie Mouse herself in on the act too.”
Tag this one as “what’s old is new again” and… again.
