Dazed and Confused May Issue - The Naked Truth
Dazed & Confused bares all in May with its “Naked Truth” issue. This month’s double cover features Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton, shot by Glen Luchford and styled by the incomparable Katy England. Inside Tilda talks her latest project, Luca Guadagnino’s sumptuous Milanese melodrama I Am Love, while ruminating on her favorite topics: art, emotion, cinema, and learning to love your teenage angst. The no-holds barred approach continues in Dazed’s Naked Truth portfolio, featuring exclusive new configurations of the nude from artists including Ryan McGinley, Terence Koh, Rankin and Venetia Scott. In fashion the undressing continues, as Dazed’s team of fashion editors survey the season’s most stripped-down trends, from barely-there sheers and nude tones to fur-and-flesh and hippy chic ensembles.
Elsewhere in the issue: Tim Walker welcomes us on to the set of his debut feature, The Lost Explorer; Oliver Stone on the follow up to his big business blockbuster Wall Street; James Murphy on LCD Soundsystem’s newest offering; the weird world of cult Sesame Street animator Al Jarnow, remembered by his son Jesse, and Heather Graham chinwags about new film Boogie Woogie. Plus: new music from Best Coast, Surfer Bload, JJ and Ronika.
Dazed & Confused’s Naked Truth issue is out April 15th.
Of the two covers, I love Tilda with a full head of red hair, as it softens her appearance. I'm aware that she is a fashion/style icon to many, but I've always found her look to be a bit "severe," but in keeping with the saying "to each his/her own, her current look is what has drawn so much attention.
Not to take anything away from the straight, flat-ironed looks, or short cuts, I personally am a fan of big hair, I always find a head full of curls quite appealing.....you know that sexy kind of "bed head" look? Oh well, It is after all just a cover look juxtaposed for the sake of fashion.....I can go with it.
