Kris Allen, Adam Lambert and Allison Iraheta Elle Photo Shoot Sneak Peek

Check out a behind the scenes look at the Elle photo shoot, starring Kris Allen, Adam Lambert and Allison Iraheta.

MTV got a first look at the spread, set to appear in the Elle’s December issue.

Elle creative director, Joe Zee dressed Kris in a “soulful” tie and skinny black pants, Adam in some spikey boots and Allison in a figure-hugging one-sleeve dress and leopard-skin boots.

And, Kris and Adam both posed in wings. Adam wore them better, of course, but those photos didn’t make the magazine. Heh.

Check out the video, after the JUMP. And read what Joe Zee has to say about each Idol right HERE.

  1. Aggghhh!! Once again I can’t see this video here in Australia but Zee has great perception of what Kris’s performance is like!!

    “He’s like a young Chris Isaak who can sing in a stadium and make every person feel like it’s a one-on-one performance,” Zee wrote.

    That’s exactly how I feel watching Kris perform- it such a personal experience!!

    I prefer the more casual Kris in this photoshoot to the “dolled up” version. Kris is a “natural”person -so no need to change this!!

  2. Got to comment for my favorite, Allison looks fierce and gorgeous and I’m loving the electric guitar. As usual though, she gets the short end of the stick with a picture in the bottom of the page while the other two get full page bigger pictures…oh well. She still looks great.

  3. The photos of Adam in wings needed to make th final magazine spread. Watching the video, I LOL’d at Kris doing a karate kick while wearing the wings — look, it’s a kickboxing angel!

  4. ‘He’s like a young Chris Isaak who can sing in a stadium and make every person feel like it’s a one-on-one performance,’  Zee wrote.

    Yeah that quote stood out for me, but my reaction was that Chris has a much better voice than Kris has, and that Chris is a better guitar, keyboard, drums, player and a better songwriter. But while I like Kris, I don’t think he’s anywhere in Chris’s league in terms of musicianship or performance skills. Chris puts on a SHOW, he intereacts really well with the crowd and is a natty dresser. No simple plaids and jeans for Chris, in fact I think he puts Adam to shame in terms of his outfits and showmanship. I am and was a Chris stan way before I ever liked Adam or Kris, I’ve seen Chris in concerts 5 times and took various people and made fans of them all. Okay, done with my Chris Isaak paean now.

    Oh and Elle still epically failed with this photoshoot. The behind the scene picture doesn’t help take away from the fail. What an effing waste.

  5. Looked at the Elle magazine on the stands today. What a joke. The photos are small and you can find a thousand photos that are better than these. What a waste . I won’t spend my money on this magazine. And I buy EVERYTHING with Adam’s picture in it, but not this one.

  6. Truthiness , I don’t think you can compare Chris Isaak & Kris & Adam’s performance skills at this stage – give them 20 years & compare – experience helps a great deal . Chris has been to Australia many times & is a great showman but I don’t happen to think he has a “great” voice-[ he’s even admitted that himself] probably just a personal preference though.

    The main thing is that it would be great to have all 3 still performing as long as Chris Isaak has been.

  7. Can’t esplain, but Kris Allen looks “smokin hot sexy “in photo as opposed to looking “adorable sweet Kris,”. The more I read and see info on Allison( and her CD )the more I am thinking she could end up being the number one of season eight.

  8. This whole thing was a major letdown. Too bad, could have been amazing.

  9. Not impressed. It looked like a photo shoot for Teen Beat magazine.

  10. Yep, this issue is already on the stands– I also had it in my hands the other day–didn’t buy it. Doesn’t even come close to S7 photoshoot and I’m not comparing the idols to one another, just the quality of the photoshoot itself.

  11. Adam could have picked out better outfits than Elle. They could have taken pictures of each other and it would have looked better. My first impression of these photos was that Elle either didn’t like them or they were afraid to take any kind of risk. These photos don’t make any kind of sense.

  12. Chris has been to Australia many times & is a great showman but I don’t happen to think he has a ‘great’  voice-[ he’s even admitted that himself] probably just a personal preference though.

    Chris said he didn’t have a good voice? Are you sure he wasn’t kidding? Because as you’ve been to his show, you know the guy has a great sense of humor and part of it is very self-deprecating. Oh and did I mention he jokes a lot? Because’s a REALLY funny guy, imho. And I haven’t seen him for 2 years, so maybe he lost his voice since then, but his voice was amazing live. Talk about a wonderfully rich lower register, and his falsetto (and for him, it is a falsetto) was clear and lovely. I didn’t hear a flat, missed or pitchy note in the 5 years of concerts I went to. Or maybe he had a bad day there in Australia. No idea. But hey, MMV and all that and that’s cool.

    Getting back to this fail whale of a photoshoot and now video, why not video with the guys interacting? Kradison are funny and cute interacting, or have been every interview I’ve seen them in, since group 2 days, they’ve been adorbs. So who at this point is surprised that Elle continued failed on this one? Anyone? anyone? Bueller?

  13. on the scanned print, Kris was looking like a 14yrs old. In the real picture, he is his handsome self :)

    Truthiness, I check pictures of Chris Isaac and the quote that he is like him is rather good I think. Don’t go further than on a look basis, it’s not meant to be deep I think

  14. Totally awful photo spread and clothes. Elle failed on this one. Just a waste of 3 nice looking people.

  15. Such a disappointment and I subscribed to Elle in part because of this shoot! But no one should have expected Elle to “get” kradison. This was an aberrational article/shoot for them. I give them points for trying, and for expanding awareness of these three performers, but yeah I give it a “fail”.

    I admitted that my Chris Isaak stanhood was probably getting in the way of this for me. But anyhew, it wasn’t the look of Chris to Kris, because Chris looks more like Adam in this shoot and dresses more like him as well in concert.

    But I’m probably focusing on this, beyond Chris standom, because I can only rant in so many ways how much I think this photoshoot sucked, so much so that the behind-the-scenes footage sucked. I mean can you imagine when Kris decides he wants to put on the wings and boots? how much Adam and Allison were probably cracking up? The crap they were probably giving him? Yeah, well keep on imagining it because any interaction between the three won’t be seen by us. Fail whale.

    Truthiness, remember they refered to a young Isaac.
    I agree with you that this photoshoot could have been so much more interesting and well done…

  18. Gee, last year’s high fashion photo shoot was so much better. I am disappointed. I expected more from Elle.

  19. Agreed, girlygirl. I am sorry, but Kris just looked stupid in the wings (and Cantiello agrees in the video). I have all Adam magazines, but just no on Elle. Bummer. I was so excited about the Kradison shoot. Fail, Elle.

  20. last year pictures were very stylish, almost iconic. These are just regular pictures, any magazine could publish it.

  21. I’m most disappointed with the Kris pictures. The boots are always going to be too big. However, they could have done something epic with those wings.

  22. Flannel or white shirt and tie, Kris Allen is my guy. He is sexy in that boy next door kind of way. I agree with the earlier poster who said she likes him best in more casual clothes. I think that more fits his style.

  23. In case anyone is interested, Kris Allen is supposed to be on Conan O’Brien tonight.

    So true – S7 – looked like effort and thought went into the shoot. Jason in a tux flipping his dreds, Archie and kristy just woah, David –yum – Brooke, Carley, Ramielle – all hot stylish shots.

  25. I suppose this photoshoot is a fail if half of the posts are about Chris Isaak (I saw him in 2001 in Atlanta – Microsoft convention – sorry, I’m a dork)

  26. I suppose this photoshoot is a fail if half of the posts are about Chris Isaak (I saw him in 2001 in Atlanta ‘“ Microsoft convention ‘“ sorry, I’m a dork)

    Going to AI 8 and quotes from Adam and some people getting all, well…I saw Bob Dylan as part of my company’s 10 annivesary and it was one of those ‘fuck you,’ days of Dylans’s performining, that is to say, it sucked.

  27. I suppose this photoshoot is a fail if half of the posts are about Chris Isaak”

    Love Wicked Game – on my list of top songs ever.

  28. I thought these shoots were all done independently so that’s why there’s no interaction? Oh well, not sure even interaction could have saved this spread. A big disappointment.

  29. Love Adam with Wings. I hope Elle post it in a different issue. :)
