I highly recommend getting the March issue of Elle Spain - it includes a massive mode supplement and the most visually pleasing set of ads I've seen in the last five years...the good thing is that fashion brands produce alternative versions of their campaigns, for markets like Russia or Spain where consumers don't identify with the crappy aesthetic of Meisel, Bart and Co - not to mention that the editors of Spanish mags tend to pick the more tasteful and elegant model pics, even if you can't really escape from Gemma's clueless stare wherever you go these days...
Excellent pic of Fernada Tavares on the cover - Bensimon may be in creative coma for several years, but the Spaniards are alive and kicking. The ed was shot in Ibiza in late December, especially for Elle Spain and features not only Fernanda T, but also Talytha Pugliesi (whoa!) and Fernanda Motta (whoa!!) People would pay money to actually be around that shoot - I am glad that Talytha escaped NYC and is chilling out in Biarritz, and I am also grateful to the guy who conviced F Motta to try modeling...
Tons of other interesting stuff inside - btw who is the one in the LaPerla PaP campaign pic with the flowers?
Spring is around the corner, and the obligatory "Brazil specials" are already appearing in all sorts of mags - the April issue of US Elle has a theme ed with Ana Beatriz (not shot by brain-dead Bensimon though) while the March issue of German MAX has "MAX goes Rio" printed on the cover page. The model is Cris Noronha, with 40 Graus agency - also known from her MissBikini pics.
MAX comes with a small booklet which had to be glued on a mag page - they chose to glue it on Gemma's face, in that hilarious CK Obsession Night for Men (!) perfume ad, where a naked Gemma emerges from a dark lagoon, to the amazement of a dude who was obviously expecting something else...hey, fashion people may have proven to be 100% pathetic, but there is still comic relief to be found in browsing mags...

In the pic, Cris Noronha from last years Rio carnival:
