The last time I paid a visit to my favourite magazine shop, this Lula cover caught my attention and so I thought that it would be worth sharing. What makes it so special is not the newness of the subject (a woman), the subject’s pose (the classic thinker) or a particularly interesting angle from which the subject was shot (the front). What I found special though, is the colour combination. All those pastel colours could easily flip onto the side of ”tacky” or “too much”. Nobody wants to look at a picture and feel like he’s walking out of a candy shop with an overdose. But luckily, that effect has been masterfully avoided and we just end up mesmerized. I assume that part of the master plan is the styling: big hair, winged eyeliner, pink lips. All those things are both perfect and perfectly fitting.
