Reach for the Sky!
When Sky Ferreira agreed to be the cover girl for next month’s issue of Playboy magazine, she also signed on to contribute to the creative outlook of the entire endeavor, even directing a visual trailer.
The result is a gritty throwback to ‘80s fashion, graphics and editing. The cover itself is a topless photo of the artist with beachy blonde waves in front of a saturated pink hue. Toying with conventions, the image is grainy and marred by TV reception waves.
In the accompanying interview (conducted by acclaimed character actor Bruce Dern), Ferreira discusses her forthcoming album Masochism, as well as balancing her work in both music and film.
“I’ve wanted to act for a while, but I get scared I’ll sign up for something and it will be a disaster,” she said. “I’m the type of person you either love or you hate, because people don’t know what box to put me in. I don’t like feeling I have something to prove, but I do feel that way.”
