Othilia Simon Gives Vogue Ukraine Its Strongest Magazine Cover of the Year

Over the course of 2017, Vogue Ukraine has been one of the few magazines our forum members look forward to seeing each month. The publication has been killing it with covers from the likes of Doutzen Kroes, Chloe Sevigny, Amber Valletta and Malgosia Bela. For the new November issue, Vogue Ukraine adds another success to its portfolio with a trio of three spectacular covers featuring French beauty Othilia Simon, photographed by Alique.

“Amazing. My favorite Vogue edition,” added forum member apple. (more…)

Kerry Washington Appears Effortless and Radiant on Allure’s November Cover

For some unknown reason, magazines never know what to do with the gorgeous Kerry Washington. According to our forums, InStyle and The Edit have been the only glossies to ever do the actress justice, while the likes of Marie Claire, ELLE and Glamour can’t seem to adequately capture the actress’ beauty. Allure now gets a second chance with the 40-year-old actress for the November 2017 issue, delivering an effortlessly beautiful portrait (finally!) photographed by Sharif Hamza. Eschewing gimmicks and airbrushing, with minimal styling, the cover is sure to stand out at the newsstand.

Per usual, members of our forums wasted no time debating the cover. “Passable, but it could be better. I know it’s a beauty magazine, but maybe this closeup is way too close. Her makeup does look great though,” commented Benn98 the moment the cover came to light.

“Oh, this is lovely,” sighed Lucien122. (more…)

Ashley Graham, Susan Sarandon and More Cover British ELLE’s Wonder Woman Issue

Since kickstarting her tenure at British ELLE with a striking Cara Delevingne cover for September, Anne-Marie Curtis continues to do innovative and inspiring things for the magazine. Her October cover featuring a Rihanna reprint outshone the publication’s American counterpart and now the new issue for November 2017 looks to be another success. Continuing with the bold and well-received redesign, Curtis presents four diversity-embracing covers featuring Ashley Graham, Alek Wek, Susan Sarandon and Beth Ditto for the new “Wonder Woman” themed issue.

The covers received a lot of attention on our forums. “This is the first time I am in love with Ashley’s work in print. The other covers are also great,” expressed a delighted fluxxx the moment the covers dropped.

“What a lovely set of covers, love the new ELLE UK! Of course, Alek is my favorite, but I’m really impressed by Ashley’s cover: definitely not your typical cover shot! Nice work,” congratulated forum member apple. (more…)

Vogue Paris Takes a Risk With Rianne van Rompaey’s Bold, Garish November Cover

Vogue Paris opted for sophistication and simplicity with Cara Delevingne‘s chic cover last month. For November 2017, the magazine takes us on a completely different journey with an in-your-face image of Rianne van Rompaey, complete with bold, garish text. The Dutch redhead makes her debut on the French fashion bible, photographed on location by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. The team transports us to the city of Venice with Rianne sporting a vivid makeup look, a head full of curls and a pink Céline dress for the electrifying cover.

Members of our forums were taken aback. “I gasped when I read the title. I was excited to see Rianne van Rompaey! But when I opened the thread, I quickly lost my enthusiasm. What is this? Wrong pose, wrong makeup, wrong frame, fake background, that dizzy pink font…” Valentine27 disapproved.

“We have a winner! Definitely the worst cover of 2017! It’s so bad, it hurts,” cried a horrified jaybee0605. (more…)

Miranda Kerr Poses With Her Pup Teddy on Harper’s Bazaar Australia for November 2017

Harper’s Bazaar Australia hasn’t been bringing its A-game lately, resorting to reprint after reprint on the past few covers (and underwhelming our forum members in the process). Thankfully, the magazine is back to commissioning original cover shoots for its latest issue. Going all out, the Australian fashion title welcomes back newsstand-gold Miranda Kerr for November 2017, who is joined by Teddy, her adorable canine companion. Miranda wears head-to-toe Ellery while the pair poses on the studio floor for photographer Nino Munoz.

“So simple yet chic!” declared tFS forum member magsaddict. “It gives me a vague American Bazaar under [Liz] Tilberis vibe? I was beginning to think this year would break the yearly cover tradition for Miranda Kerr, she is to Aussie Harper’s Bazaar what Kate Moss is to British Vogue!”

“Looks more like a celebrity cover, very safe, but then again Miranda hardly ever did model solid covers. Her appeal is more like that of a celebrity anyway,” Benn98 chimed in. (more…)

Mila Kunis Poses Awkwardly on Marie Claire’s November Cover

A burning question haunting our forums: what exactly is going on over at Marie Claire lately? The magazine has failed to deliver the goods over recent months, with a slew of less than impressive covers. The American fashion title’s Taraji P. Henson cover last month barely made a splash and now, the new November 2017 issue starring Mila Kunis is off to a rocky start. Photographed by Kai Z Feng, stylist Deborah Watson dressed the actress in head-to-toe Louis Vuitton in the newsstand cover image (below), while Mila sits on the studio floor, looking rather uncomfortable and not much like her usual self.

Members of our forums immediately picked up on the awkwardness. “Weird pose, very Gollum-esque. I also don’t know what’s going on with her left arm. All that said, her face is so damn pretty that it still works,” commented SallyAlbright at once.

“I also thought of Gollum when I saw it,” echoed A.D.C. (more…)
