Like the rest of the world, we’re already obsessed with Grimes, Sky Ferreira, and Charli XCX individually. But when you put three of our favorite emerging musicians together? Um, let’s just say our minds exploded a little bit- okay, a lot– from the pure excitement of it all. The trio covers V Magazine’s new “Youth Quake” issue, looking, well, exactly like the Next Big Things decked out in head to toe Givenchy. Look even closer and you’ll see that the three rising pop stars aren’t the only ones fronting the mag- they share the cover with three tiny mice (eeeek).
This cover is just one of three different versions that V is rolling out this month, all featuring the best up-and-comers from the worlds of fashion, art and music. We’re partial to the Grimes/Sky/Charli cover, not only because these girls are currently our iPod MVPS, but just look at the clothes! They’re totally regal in Riccardo Tisci’s amazing Fall 2012 collection (hot off the runway, folks!), including star-encrusted capes, tightly cinched skirts, and statement disc earrings. With slicked-back buns and smoky eyes, they almost look like they could be sisters- which is really saying something, considering how totally diverse their style is otherwise. Shot by photographer Sebastian Faena and styled by Carine Roitfeld, this ultra high-fashion spread proves these girls can seriously work it, onstage and off. Inside the issue, each of the three musicians speaks with industry legends like Elton John, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, and Geri Halliwell. Find out more about the “Youth Quake” edition here, and buy V Magazine when it hits stands July 5th. Trust us, you’ll want to keep this issue forever.
