Mag Monday: Vogue and GQ

I'm not really a Vogue kinda girl, but the cover this month is so beautiful, I just had to pick it up. Lookie!

Unfortunately there wasn'y much to capture my attention between the covers. There was some more pretty pictures though.

The August edition of the American GQ on the other hand, is filled with awesomeness (and pretty pictures too, natch).

The cover story and images of Joseph Gordon-Levitt are lovely, although JGL protested the way the story described his brother's death. I can understand why he's upset, however I can also see why the magazine would have included the "alleged drug overdose" reference. It's part of the story, after all. That aside, I predict JGL will be the next Ryan Gosling. He's got the swagger, he's got the adorableness, he's got the multi-talented thing down, and he's a former child star... he's totally the brunette RGos. He just needs a Nicholas Sparks movie to catapult him to meme status.

But JGL isn't the only hot guy in a suit GQ has on offer this month. Oh, no. Their main fashion features Douglas Booth, David Oyelowo, Kit Harrington AND Max Irons. Whoever came up with that idea is literally a genius.

What did I tell you? GENIUS. As if that wasn't enough eye candy, they also have an entire feature dedicated to ice cream. With pictures of an ice cream galaxy. ICE. CREAM. GALAXY.

On a more sombre note, Sean Flynn's in-depth story on the massacre in Norway, featuring survivor's experiences, makes for a chilling but fascinating read.

I'm not exactly the target audience but I found so much to love in this GQ - I'll definitely be picking it up more often in the future.


  1. Yah! I love mag features. That ice cream is too fab :) Love it. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love how you predict JGL can be the next RG. I had a tiny crush on him way back when I was younger and he was on 3rd Rock from the Sun. Then I developed a much stronger but still secret crush on him in 10 Things I Hate About You. He's just so sweet and has an adorable smile. Also, he looks nice in a suit :)

    1. He was cute in 10 Things, though I was always a bit in love with Heath Ledger.
