Cover Girl Battle: Katy Perry vs. Nina Dobrev vs. Zooey Deschanel

Posted by Alexandra C. | Thursday August 8, 201319 comments

I love critiquing magazine covers. Breaking down the shoot, taking stock of hair, makeup, and designer clothes, and the art of fashion photography? Total binge-worthy pleasure. I can look at photos of models for hours and not get bored.  

September is the biggest month of the year for magazines, so publishers are bringing their A-game with some super cool spreads. Let's talk about them, shall we? 

#1 Katy Perry for Elle UK Magazine

#2 Nina Dobrev for Cosmopolitan

#3 Zooey Deschanel for Marie Claire

First and foremost, dem brows Ms. Perry. I want. The grey tweed has an odd peplum thing happening but I'm too distracted by those brows and that hair to care. The second outfit has a vintage feel and a good choice for Katy. I'm liking the hat, too. 

Nina is a bombshell here. Check the wind-blown hair and houndstooth mini! Sexaii. Then she totally flips it and goes all demure and sweet in a printed collared dress with a milkmaid's braid. I usually hate Cosmo covers but I will say that it's tasteful and the balance between the cover and the spread makes it quite chic and high fashion. 

Zooey is all rock n' roll glam on the cover of Marie Claire. I adore the fishnets and smoky eye. Inside, she pulls off this printed dress (are we sensing a trend?) in her usual quirky-cute way. 

I'm surprising myself and giving Nina the win here. Who is your fave cover girl?

I like Nina's Cosmo cover, but the second picture is just awkward (same with Zoey's second pic)

I love Katie's look, she looks less photoshopped than the other two.Nina is pretty, although her poses are not my favourite. I think Zooey is beautiful as well, but it is overly unnatural. They are all gorgeous girls, but Katy has this one for sure.

I'm really feeling Katy here. Her look seems very casual to be honest, and seems like something she would step out in, or even perform in. What I'm saying : It seems very KATY of her, and shows her personality very well. Whilst I love Nina (because she is Canuck like me...), and Zooey has a certain cuteness and sexiness to her look as well, (both pictures have the contrast between sexy and cute), I find Katy's the most consistent. I appreciate that.

I'm all in on the Katy Perry for the editorial. I didn't even recognize her!

That cover is awesome! Houndstooth plaid diaper jumper that is sexy/cool? Is that possible? Bam, they just did that. Way hotter and definitely classier than the ht that Dobrev is painted into. Plus matching shoes? Please.The knit dress with the hat is gorgeous as well.

My only comment on Zooey is the bangs - hasn't it been long enough? Can she not update her hair already? I can't get past it to look at her wallpaper dresses.

im going for katy. the looks are natural for her and she doesn't even look that she's trying to be sexy or something.
