When we saw LOVE’s latest Kate Moss cover, we wondered about the issue’s title – This Is Hardcore – and what it would yield inside the magazine’s pages. Is Kate Moss locking lips with transgender model Lea T LOVE’s idea of Hardcore? Apparently, but we knew that from the cover. So what’s new inside?
There’s a fairly regular dose of nudity, some nice biker styling, and the addition of the ever-gorgeous Natalia Vodianova. But still nothing the fashion world hasn’t seen before, and certainly nothing we’d be game to label as ‘hardcore’.
A bad thing? Not at all – Mert and Marcus bring us a beautifully photographed black and white shoot, even if it doesn’t quite live up to the expectation set out by the title.
You can pick up a copy of the latest LOVE on newsstands now, or stay tuned for more peeks inside as we wait and see just how hardcore it gets.
