Chanel Iman for L’Officiel

January 17, 2012

Chanel Iman looks an awful lot like Chiquita Banana in the February L'Officiel magazine cover on news stands now, but we love it anyway.

The cover: L’Officiel magazine‘s February 2012 issue.

The model: Chanel Iman.

The set: A turquoise backdrop with digital rendering rough-cut and pasted on like a grade five collage featuring the print oft those fun Dolce & Gabbana shorts, bustier and bolero combo.

The photographer: Russell James

The final word: We love the fun vegetable and fruit prints from the Dolce & Gabbana spring 2012 collection: rich in colour, fun in spirit and bright for spring, red onions never looked this good.

Chanel Iman is glowing on this cover- the creamy beauty rocks the coral lipstick and the retro vibe of a fun little outfit in which to welcome sunshine and a fresh crop of fashion. Yeah, it’s a little Carmen Miranda as Chiquita Banana but thankfully she’s been spared fruit as a fascinator- and frankly, we were expecting to see one with all the wonderful Phillip Treacy shananigans of recent years (see below).

Lady Gaga sports a Philip Treacy lobster fascinator. Fascinating!

Sarah Jessica Parker received quite a bit of press when she rocked this green Philip Treacy head piece

      Yes! It’s like a mini vacation all rolled into one- turquoise, prints, bloomer shorts- let’s go!
