A few months ago, there was a flurry of excitement on Twitter as editor Lucy Yeomans dropped hints about a groundbreaking Harper’s cover shoot she had been on. Duran Duran was mentioned, supermodels were mentioned and, well, that was enough to pique my interest*. Continue reading

The new H&M autumn magazine is out and it includes main contributions from me and a couple of my blog buddies.
