And it’s got big Slick energy

Soon enough, the first print edition of Dazed Beauty will go on sale around the globe. A physical version of our weird and wonderful virtual world, Issue Zero is a celebration of our launch theme: the future of beauty, specifically looking at the way that it intersects with technology. 

Yesterday we introduced our first cover – Kate Moss and Travis Scott reimagined as mythical creatures roaming a dystopian landscape. Now we can reveal the second cover: Slick Woods' head as a digital avatar designed by artist and Dazed Beauty favourite Rick Farin. 

You might remember a version of this image from our Choose Your Player campaign, which launched Dazed Beauty digitally back in September. But here, Slick’s 3D head has been transformed from a spinning animation into a beautiful cover image that continues the themes of futurism, tech and imagination from our first cover featuring Travis and Kate.

Slick is a modern beauty icon, who, with her shaved head, gapped front teeth, and bleached brows, rips up the rulebook of what is expected of a beauty muse. For these reasons and more, she was an obvious choice for our cover. She’s fearless and unapologetic. As Kemi Alemoru wrote in her piece unpacking the anatomy of Slick’s appeal, “she knows she is that bitch.”

Read about her Big Slick Energy here. And as for the other covers of Dazed Beauty Issue Zero, keep your eyes peeled over the next week.
