Marie Claire May 2014 ‘New Leading Ladies’ Issue

Posted on April 10, 2014

We’d say all of these ladies brought their face-giving A game here, but let’s face it: there’s a clear winner.



Lupita Nyong’o



Elle Fanning


Elisabeth Olsen



Kate Mara



Emilia Clarke

 Miss Lupita’s once again in a class all her own. The funny thing is, even though we like all these shots, we pretty much hate what they’re all wearing. We can see why they’d pick that outdoor medium shot of Lupita, instead of the glamour shots of Elizabeth, Kate and Elle, but we can’t understand why they’d go for the flat, Terry Richardson-style Polaroid lighting for Emilia. She looks good – because you pretty much can’t take a bad picture of her, but it’s the worst of the lot because of that choice.
