The Best and Worst of July Fashion Magazines


This is one of the last lazy summer months before the fall fashion issues start to get seriously beefy with pictures of winter clothes. Though the cold weather won't stop magazines from shooting nearly naked people, the time to shoot nearly naked people in bathing suits by pools is kind of running out. So GQ included some shots of Emanuela de Paula and Mehcad Brooks looking seriously hot in a poolside foreplay scene. V shot lots of scantily clad models, too, including one breast-feeding in a scene where she's supposed to be an athlete's wife. InStyle put Cameron Diaz in the same teeny Balmain dress magazines have been shooting to death all season. And Karl Lagerfeld kept himself covered as usual to pet a furry couch in British Vogue. See those shots and more in the slideshow ahead.
