As announced in December 2016, Selena Gomez is the new brand ambassador for Coach, having inked a multimillion-dollar deal with the New York-based fashion brand. Selena’s debut as the face of Coach comes in the form of the label’s newly unveiled Fall 2017 advertising campaign. Photographed by Coach regular (and forum favorite) Steven Meisel, Selena plays up to the role of the all-American Coach woman perfectly, captured in the back of a vintage car wearing Stuart Vevers’ designs, styled by Karl Templer.

Was the outcome enough to satisfy our forum members? “This is possibly the best I have seen her look in print, they changed her eyebrows, and she looks so much more mature, and interesting,” raved Miss Dalloway upon seeing the campaign images.
“She fits Coach better than that weird Louis Vuitton stint,” added RedSmokeRise. (more…)
The last time Harper’s Bazaar Spain caught our forum’s attention this much was back in March with a sophisticated Stella Maxwell on the cover. This month, the ever-gorgeous Adriana Lima stars on two covers for July 2017, marking what seems to be Yolanda Sacristan‘s debut as editor-in-chief. Shot by Vincent Peters, Adriana looks like a goddess in the flawless and captivating black and white images.
“Exactly what I expected when I read Adriana Lima by Vincent Peters, absolute bombshell brilliance! Love it. She always delivers when stylists and photographers play up to her va-va-voom appeal. Both covers are splendid,” commented forum member Benn98 the moment the covers were revealed.
“This is simply divine. She’s inconceivably gorgeous,” complemented happycanadian. (more…)
Bella Hadid continues to land major advertising campaigns for the Fall 2017 season. Her latest is the new Max Mara Accessories campaign, for which older sister Gigi served as the face for two consecutive seasons. Bella was photographed by master photographer Steven Meisel for the moody campaign, looking rather melancholy and subdued peering out a window with the brand’s leather tote bag remaining in full focus.
The campaign seemed to leave our forums divided. “Guess mom and dad paid Meisel the big bucks,” snarled DutchHomme within seconds of the campaign coming to light.
“This anti-Hadid circle jerk is getting beyond tired. And these ‘their parents paid for this’ comments are insufferable TBH. Yes, Meisel was paid – by Max Mara to photograph one of the in-demand models of the moment. And it turned out gorgeous!” fired back forum member russianelf. (more…)
Allure is having an amazing 2017. The beauty bible gave the newsstand some much-needed diversity with its glorious April cover, won us over with Sienna Miller for May and had an instant hit on its hands with a Zoe Kravitz cover last month. Now, for July 2017, the magazine is sure to receive a huge amount of buzz for being the first mainstream American glossy to feature hijab-wearing model Halima Aden on the cover. The Muslim beauty continues to gain momentum within the industry as “destroyer of stereotypes,” fronting Allure‘s bright, bold and beautiful cover for July 2017, photographed by Sølve Sundsbø.

Despite Allure‘s major scoop this month, our forum members felt the cover was missing something. “Something different but not my cup of tea,” wrote DutchHomme upon seeing the cover.
“It’s far too obvious. They could have done something really special, instead they just threw on a basic American looking jacket and put her in front of a camera. Very lazy styling,” discredited forum member GivenchyHomme. (more…)
The world of fashion continues to embrace Paris Jackson. We’ve been keeping a close eye on the rising star lately, which has been unavoidable considering she’s already graced the covers of US Harper’s Bazaar, CR Fashion Book and Teen Vogue, all within a few short months (while inking a multimillion-dollar contract with Calvin Klein in the process). Paris’ next move comes in the shape of fronting Vogue Australia for July 2017. Photographed by master portrait photographer Patrick Demarchelier, Paris wears Prada in the cover image (below), complete with styling from Aussie Vogue‘s Christine Centenera.
Our forum members, unfortunately, weren’t feeling the cover. “Boring! I don’t get it why the celebrity kids are becoming famous,” voiced burbuja8910 the moment the cover dropped.
“Nope. Vogue Australia get it together. Hideous layout as per usual. I wish magazines would challenge Demarchelier more. It’s always the same covers from him these days – studio, cold, same pose,” added MON. (more…)
Victoria Beckham is not exactly a rare sight at the newsstand, having covered umpteen magazine covers over the years. From modeling her namesake Target collection on UK ELLE to attempting a smile on Vogue Australia, we’ve become accustomed to seeing the same old pose from the designer. Not so with her latest appearance, however, on the cover of Vogue Netherlands’ July/August 2017 issue. Photographed by Jan Welters at an outdoor retreat in Los Angeles, Victoria looks refreshingly effortless and relaxed — and our forums can’t get enough.
“Gorgeous cover, and total opposite of what I expected clicking on the thread. VB in a swimsuit? And no high heels in sight! Jan Welters is such a good photographer, I always say they should use him more. I’m in a perfect mood for a summer cover like this. Also love the little cardigan with the swimsuit,” raved Miss Dalloway the moment the cover dropped.
“This is how casual should be done in Vogue! Not an inch of glamour lost, the cover screams of luxury,” praised A.D.C. (more…)
