But we were a bit surprised to see her chosen cover outfit: the ubiquitous purple twist top, orange skirt and gold python belt from Gucci's Spring 2011 collection, the same outfit featured on dozens of magazine covers last year. Why the out-of-date fashion?
Turns out IO Donna's March issue is new but the photos are not. It looks like the Italian fashion mag recycled the Max Abadian-snapped photos from Flare magazine, which ran one of the pics on its June 2011 cover.
Reusing cover pics is, of course, a fairly common occurrence. Carey Mulligan's delicate pose in Chanel Couture appeared on three different magazine covers (American Vogue, German Glamour and French Elle), and Kate Moss has at least two different cover shots reappear on totally different mags.
In the case of Jennifer Lawrence, IO Donna is an Italian mag owned by RCS Media Group whereas Flare is a Canadian publication owned by Rogers Digital Media. So you would imagine no sharesies allowed...
Check out the two covers below. Do you think the pic was one worth repeating?
