A puppetlike Lily Donaldson in a creepy dollhouse was created for the first issue cover of Garage Magazine by photographer Nick Knight and artist Dinos Chapman.
The magazine that will come out during Fashion Week, is created by Dasha Zhukova, a former editor of Pop, and named after the contemporary art center she opened in Moscow in 2008.
There are rumours saying that there will be three different covers, one of the more provocative covers shows a Hedi Slimane photograph of a lower half of a nude model, whose crotch is covered by a green butterfly sticker created by Damien Hirst. The sticker peels off (inspired by the Velvet Underground album art by Andy Warhol) to reveal a butterfly tattoo, also of Mr. Hirst’s design.
The masthead of the magazine includes Mike Meiré (he is also the art director of the influential German magazine 032c) as Art Director, Shala Monroque as Creative Director and Joan Juliet Buck as an Editorial Consultant.

It has been quite a year for Harper’s Bazaar UK because they gave us a very great covers! Actresses, singer and models graced their covers this years with most of them shot by Alexi Lubomirski, Cedric Buchet and Paola Kudacki.
I personally loved quite a numbers for this year’s selection. I love Julianne Moore‘s minimalist February cover as she was shot by Paola Kudacki. I love the hazy May cover of Jennifer Aniston by Alexi Lubomirski and the June cover where they featured Cheryl Cole with a big bouncy hair lensed also by Alexi Lubomirski. September (click here to see the subscriber cover) issue,they featured Gisele Bindchen shot by Cedric Buchet also on my list of favourite Harper’s Bazaar UK covers along with the newsstands cover of Karen Elson for their October cover, also by the Wimbledon born photographer Alexi Lubomirski (he also the boyfriend of model Jacqueeta Wheeler).
And they closed the year with my the stunning black and gold cover shot by Michelangelo di Battista and the subscriber cover where Natalia play the role as Joan of Arc lensed by Dinos Chapman.
The rest of the year we have Scarlett Johansson for January by Alexi Lubomirski, supermodel Cindy Crawford for March by Paris based photographer Cedric Buchet, Megan Fox for April by Paola Kudacki, Vanessa Paradis for July by Cedric Buchet, Marion Cotillard for August also by Cedric Buchet, and last but not least Renee Zellweger for November by Alexi Lubomirski.
Thanks to TFS for the montage.
