Vogue Turkey Just Gave Hailey Baldwin Her Very First Vogue Cover

Despite being on everyone’s radar for quite some time, it’s hard to believe that Hailey Baldwin is only just scoring her first Vogue cover. Following in the footsteps of BFF Kendall Jenner, Hailey becomes a cover girl for Vogue Turkey’s March 2018 issue. It’s a shame the American beauty isn’t solo for the occasion, though, as she’s joined by male model Valentine Rontez in the studio image shot by Liz Collins.

Vogue Turkey doesn’t exactly have the best track record on our forums and this month is no exception. “Didn’t think she’d ever book a Vogue cover. Hailey’s face doesn’t scream model to me, it never does. I understand what they went for, just a pity the execution looks so awful. Liz Collins is normally a capable photographer,” Benn98 critiqued.

“It’s like someone asked them to demonstrate the phrase, ‘You don’t know whether you’re coming or going,'” mocked tigerrouge of the posing.

“Oh, boy!! That is NOT the image you want as your first Vogue cover. Brutal!” declared Miss Dalloway. (more…)

Bella Hadid Channels Dolly Parton in DSquared2’s Western-Inspired Fall 2018 Campaign

The Fall 2018 season sure is looking bright for Bella Hadid. After walking 14 shows during fashion month, Bella now sets her sights on ad campaigns for the upcoming season and her first conquest is DSqaured2. Shot on location in a motel room by photographic duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, Bella seems to channel country music icon Dolly Parton with her mass of voluminous hair as she participates in the western-inspired shoot.

At least some of our forum members were fans of the campaign. “Dolly Parton much? This has Katie Grand written all over this with the gimmicks. But I don’t actually hate it,” confessed FadeToBlack.

“Bella’s usual vacant expression is perfect for this,” forum member mikel admitted.

Vogue Australia’s Attempt at Diversity Falls Flat

Ever since our forums got wind of Vogue Australia’s “diversity” cover shoot back in December, we’ve been waiting in suspense for it to drop. The outcome is finally here, arriving in the form of the magazine’s April 2018 cover. Photographed by Patrick Demarchelier (really, Vogue?), the magazine finally joins the 21st century and embraces diversity with models Fernanda Ly, Akiima, Charlee Fraser and Andreja Pejic. The group comes together, “uniting Australian fashion” while wearing head-to-toe Celine, styled by Christine Centenera.

Our forum members were not impressed with the effort. “They have absolutely no chemistry between them, whatsoever. And I have no interest in this,” voiced KateTheGreatest the second the cover came to light.

“This is good enough for one of the ANTM show challenges…” pointed out KissMiss.

“This wouldn’t be the first cover that treats the demand for diversity as a tick-box exercise,” tigerrouge chimed in. (more…)

Where’s the Spirit in Emma Stone’s Louis Vuitton ‘Spirit of Travel’ Campaign?

If you haven’t heard already, Emma Stone is Louis Vuitton’s latest brand ambassador, becoming Nicolas Ghesquière‘s newest muse and clothes horse. The first major outing from the actress as the face of the legendary French fashion house arrives in the form of the new ‘Spirit of Travel’ campaign for 2018, photographed by Craig McDean. Giving Alicia Vikander the push, Emma ventured out into the California desert for the shoot, roaming around a large purpose-built V monument with the rugged landscape making for a nice contrast against Vuitton’s luxurious Capucine handbags.

Unfortunately, our forum members weren’t too impressed. “Coach? Calvin Klein?” asked Conbothsides, suggesting the campaign didn’t look or feel on-brand.

“Coach + Calvin Klein = Louis Vuitton. Seriously though, this is so uninspiring it puts me to sleep. I remember those Annie’s shots which actually sent me somewhere but my bed. The images are fine. But for a brand that is Louis Vuitton, I expect more,” voiced TaylorBinque. (more…)

There’s Something Off With Jennifer Lopez’s Harper’s Bazaar Cover for April

We love when someone unexpected appears on the cover of our favorite fashion glossies and, despite what you may think, Jennifer Lopez can be a rare sight at the newsstand. J.Lo’s last notable solo cover was for W Magazine back in 2016, but Harper’s Bazaar just made her its cover girl for April 2018. Shot by Mariano Vivanco, Jennifer was photoshopped photographed on location on a rooftop in downtown Los Angeles at sunset, wearing a vivid pink Oscar de la Renta gown and sporting a soft and sultry makeup look in the newsstand cover image (below).

But something seems seriously off, according to our forum members. “Jennifer Lopez and US Bazaar should be a great match. But what’s with the odd cover shot — this less-than-glamorous neck twist? Did they try to capture her mid-movement?” questioned tigerrouge the moment the cover struck.

“I instantly liked this! Yet on closer inspection, Jennifer’s mouth area looks really off in the shot, as does the jawline and cheek area. They’ve clearly gone OTT post-production (again),” vogue28 noted.

Eva Herzigova Poses on Vogue Poland’s Laid-Back April Cover

The inaugural cover of Vogue Poland featuring Anja Rubik and Malgosia Bela failed to excite the majority of our forum members when it debuted last month. The publication now gives up its April 2018 cover to model Eva Herzigova, whose last Vogue cover appearance was back in 2014. Four years later, Eva shows us what we’ve been missing in the laid-back cover image photographed by Chris Colls. The Czech looks effortless and comfortable wearing jeans and a sweater while reclining on a leather sofa.

Once again, the magazine pulled in mixed feedback. “OK well this is just lazy and uninspired,” pointed out lelaid the moment the cover dropped.

“Pretty shot but not Vogue-worthy, it’s literally and figuratively lazy. It needs more tension/excitement,” noted Nymphaea. (more…)
