Condé Nast’s much-anticipated new fashion rag Love (with Katie Grand, formerly of Pop, at the helm) has officially launched. While copies of the magazine that pictures a nude Beth Ditto — frontwoman of The Gossip — on its premiere cover are in limited supply, fortunately for fans of the amorous title, Love’s namesake website is up and running, and it showcases many an interview and images contained within the magazine’s pages. Everyone from models Agyness Deyn and Bridget Hall to designer Alber Elbaz and icon Iggy Pop contribute thoughts on the four-letter word.
Deyn muses on her love for the Queen, while Hall talks about her adoration of American football. Mannequin Raquel Zimmerman cites Black Sabbath’s “Sweet Leaf” as her favorite love song. Meanwhile, fashion designer-turned-photographer Hedi Slimane snaps the iconic Courtney Love for the publication. Sensing a pattern?
