GARAGE Magazine Turns Supermodels Into Superheroes

by Paige Reddinger

GARAGE magazine has teamed up with Marvel Entertainment to turn five supermodels—Adriana Lima, Karlie Kloss, Candice Swanepoel, Lexi Boling, and Cuba Tornado Scott—into superheroes in celebration of the mag’s 10th anniversary. Each scored their own cover, with Lima made over as She-Hulk (yes, you read that right), Kloss as the Black Widow, Boling as Captain Marvel, Swanepoel as Spider-Gwen, and Tornado Scott as Thor. “It’s important that young girls have fierce and strong role models to look up to and that’s what this project is really about,” said Kloss. “These role models come in many forms, from fictional superheroes to incredible businesswomen to strong female athletes.”

The covers were styled by GARAGE fashion director Charlotte Stockdale with beauty by Pat McGrath, but if you want to see the supermodels really transform, you will have to download the GARAGE magazine app. Readers will be able to scan the covers to witness the women transform into 3-D digital animations.

Also on the app: A conversation with artist Margaret Lee and Barneys New York creative director Dennis Freedman on consumerism, value illusion, and desire; a 3-D experience of the new Tate Modern plus an interview with its director of exhibitions Achim Borchardt-Hume; and the ability to commission a digital “painting” of yourself by artist Giovanna Olmos. GARAGE’s anniversary issue also features contributions from Urs Fischer, Amanda Harlech, Jeffrey Deitch, and Alexander Fury.
