Here’s the quote from Creative Review:
HERSELF magazine is biannual fashion magazine with a difference: every image (including every single ad for brands such as Gucci, Jil Sander, Givenchy etc) is illustrated. We talked to its art director to try and find out a little more…
“HERSELF celebrates the staggering power of fashion, the beauty and seasonality of its clothes, the overwhelming status of brands, the never ending fascination with celebrity and icons,” says Thorbjørn Ankerstjerne, the magazine’s art director.
“It consists of 248 entirely illustrated pages which allows us to break boundaries of time and space, travelling everywhere,” Ankerstjerne continues. “We talk to legends and fairytale princesses as we recognise in them the contemporary taste for endless possibilities.”
And so it is that in the pages of HERSELF, fiction and reality blur and we find actress Kristen Stewart pictured next to Disney‘s Snow White (as on the cover, top most image), Cleopatra next to Elizabeth Taylor, and Kirsten Dunst next to Marie Antoinette. There’s even fashion stories starring such cartoon characters as Pocahontas and the Little Mermaid modelling clothes and jewellery.

In case you haven’t notice, in 2012 there will be two different movies that will featured Snow White as the main character. The first one is the untitled Tarsem Singh‘s project with the young Lily Collins (daughter of famed singer Phil Collins and Taylor Lautner rumoured girlfried) as Snow White, Julia Roberts as The Evil Queen, Sean Bean as The Father and The Social Network‘s Armie Hammer as The Prince. The movie is set to release on March 16th 2012 and produced by Relativity Media.
Below image is Lily Collins first preview as Snow White in Tarsem Singh‘s untitled adaptation photographed beautifully by Matthew Rolston.
The other Snow White movie that will head to head next year is the one that distributed by Universal Pictures and directed by Rupert Sanders, an acclaimed commercials director titled Snow White and The Huntsman. From the character designs below, we are assuming that the movie will be dark and having the Tim Burton-esque feeling. Interesting.
As you can see from the characters preview released recently at San Diego Comic Con, Twilight star Kristen Stewart looking very cool with an armour as Snow White while the hunky Chris Hemsworth looking perfect as The Huntsman. Academy Award winner Charlize Theron will played her part as The Queen while 25 year old Pirates of The Carribean: On Stranger Tides actor, Sam Claflin will be The Prince.
Which adaptation will you be expecting next year? We are looking forward for both of it!
P.S : Kristen Stewart is rumoured having a cover shoot for a major fashion magazine recently. The issue wil hit the newsstands near the end of the year. Promoting Breaking Dawn? Hell, yes!
