Refinery 29 writes that although Vs.Magazine’s spring/summer issue features six covers of Emilia Clarke, Christy Turlington, Soo Joo Park, Stacy Martin, Julianne Moore and Helena Christensen, who also serves as guest editor, it’s really about Emilia Clarke. The breakout star again comes to life soon in the season premiere of ‘Game of Thrones’.
Funny, that’s not what caught my eye at all — which isn’t talking anything away from Emilia Clarke — except that unlike Turlington, Moore and Christensen, the actress is barely making eye contact and her eyes aren’t demanding our focus. Neither are Martin or Park, which are quite posed.
What struck me about these covers is the fierce gazes of the older women. A wide range of rich experience and meeting life head-on, as Helena, Christy and Julianne have a reputation for doing, has rendered them compelling in these images. Presumably each of the younger women has the potential to own eyes like these some day, but for now Christy, Helena and Julianne dominate the younger women. Nice. ~ Anne
