The Best and Worst of August Fashion Magazines

August was a blue month for fashion — a literally blue month. Maybe it's because all the now-plump issues have started putting on their winter poundage? Nylon and Industrie gave us blue makeup, W gave us blue hair, and Harper's Bazaar gave us a blue model. The entrée into the fall season also seemed a little blue, figuratively speaking. Or maybe that was just over at Love, which presented a brooding issue with a 46-page editorial by Mert & Marcus showing models in various states of undress, who dangled from ropes on trees when they weren't tied up and stranded on docks with swans pecking at them. See those images, Daniel Craig, and more in the slideshow.
