The worlds of fashion, comics and digital technology collide with spectacular results as GARAGE Magazine today reveals five special edition covers for their tenth issue celebrating Marvel’s powerful women.

Produced in creative collaboration with Marvel Entertainment, these covers – on newsstands globally February 11 – feature leading supermodels styled as some of Marvel’s most popular super heroes.

Using the GARAGE Mag app, readers can scan each of the covers to see these leading ladies come to life as 3D digital animations – styled in true comic book form:

  1. Adriana Lima as She-Hulk
  2. Karlie Kloss as Black Widow  
  3. Lexi Boling as Captain Marvel
  4. Candice Swanepoel as Spider-Gwen
  5. Cuba Tornado Scott as Thor

Cover model, Karlie Kloss said:

“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. These role models come in many forms, from fictional Super Heroes to incredible businesswomen to strong female athletes.”

The magazine covers were styled by GARAGE Fashion Director Charlotte Stockdale with beauty direction by Pat McGrath.

Included, as part of the feature story about Marvel’s leading female Super Heroes, is Sana Amanat, director of content development and editor at Marvel Comics. “Over the past few years, female Super Heroes have been front and center at Marvel – from Jane Foster taking on the mantle of Thor, to Captain Marvel being celebrated in her own movie. Now, these leading ladies are having an incredible fashion moment with Garage Magazine,” said Sana. “Reinterpreting our Super Heroes through these fashion magazine covers perfectly demonstrates what we believe about our characters – the idea that anyone can express their own unique identity and individualism.”

GARAGE Magazine was an early adopter of integrating 3D technology into print. By exploring the digital as a new mode of visual communications, each new issue of GARAGE Magazine and its multidimensional features push the boundaries of fashion, art, and now comic culture.

“Super Heroes meet Supermodels in this unique collaboration with Marvel for the 10th issue of Garage Magazine,” said Charlotte Stockdale, Fashion Director at Garage Magazine. “Merging the powers of style, beauty, technology and the infinite reaches of the human imagination, these Super Heroes of fashion emerge from the pages of Garage in all their 3D swashbuckling glory.”
