Honestly? I think this cover is perfect for February. (They’re calling it The Dreamers Issue, but it’ll be on newsstands for Valentine’s Day and they definitely thought about that.) It’s basically the only thing I’ve ever seen that could literally be described as “hearts, but make it fashion.” And she looks dreamy, so that works, too. Romantic, but not corny. A little creepy, which is right for Bones and All. I’d read it on an airplane.
The profile is legitimately interesting. Taylor Russell took up the HARP during the pandemic! That’s amazing:
“I wanted to play it for a very long time,” she explains. “I was like, ‘What’s the one instrument that none of my neighbors are going to hate hearing?’” Russell was living in New York at the time, and everyone was stuck indoors. “It’s the harp. It could never be annoying. It’s such a beautiful, calming thing,” she says. Russell signed up for virtual lessons and rented a harp. (The first song she learned to play was “Creep” by Radiohead.)
THAT is a lede for your profile! (The kicker is also very good.) The accompanying editorial shoot is VERY editorial (appropriate), but also has one of the most wearable Loewe’s I’ve ever seen. Who knew?
