Edward Enninful Disappoints With Margot Robbie and Nicole Kidman’s February Cover of UK Vogue

Is Edward Enninful on his way to becoming a one-hit wonder as editor-in-chief of British Vogue? We’re slowly starting to feel that way after his Taylor Swift cover disappointed our forum members and now, the February 2018 cover fails to excite. A stark contrast from last year’s February cover, Enninful gives us two Hollywood actresses: Aussie duo Margot Robbie and Nicole Kidman. Photographed by Juergen Teller and styled by Enninful himself, Margot wears Louis Vuitton while Nicole poses in Christian Dior, each wearing a pair of LaCrasia gloves.

It’s safe to say our forum members aren’t buying it. “I don’t like it that much… I don’t like Teller for covers, as his photography is too pedestrian IMO,” said kokobombon straight away.

“Awful. Based on this, Juergen Teller should be shooting mugshots and not Vogue covers,” mocked 333101. (more…)

Sasha Pivovarova Shows Off Her Artistic Talents in Christian Dior’s Spring 2018 Campaign

Maria Grazia Chiuri hasn’t been able to catch a break when it comes to Christian Dior’s ad campaigns. Her debut Spring 2017 campaign looked more suited to the high street and the Fall 2017 images that followed failed to excite (even the Jennifer Lawrence ads were off the mark). Yet change seems to be in the air as Dior unveils its campaign for Spring 2018, ditching the multi-girl casting and allowing veteran model Sasha Pivovarova to steal the show. Also out is photographer Brigitte Lacombe in favor of Patrick Demarchelier who captures Sasha on the studio floor, showcasing her various works of art and proving less is always more.

But is it? The campaign left our forum members divided. “Sasha! What a treat. The shot is OK but I’m so excited to see her and I love that they included her painting, she’s very talented,” posted forum member LastNight upon checking out the campaign.

“I will always be happy to see the wonderful Sasha, a true star who can even make these clothes look decent,” added [Piece Of Me]. (more…)

Tracee Ellis Ross Is All Smiles on Glamour’s February Cover

Tracee Ellis Ross gave us life on the October 2017 cover of W Magazine, outshining a host of other “new royals.” Now, the actress is a much-welcomed sight on the front of Glamour‘s February 2018 issue. Photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, Tracee is all smiles in the joyful cover image (below) in a colorful Jil Sander knit teamed with a pair of Louis Vuitton sneakers.

Members of our forums were thrilled for Tracee but thought Glamour‘s art direction ruined (once again) an otherwise dynamic image. “I like her. Happy that she’s on the cover but that font has to go, and the styling. Goodness!” commented MON the moment the cover struck.

“I like the energy, perfect for Tracee but that font!” echoed dfl-001. (more…)

Bella Hadid Returns to Max Mara for the New Spring 2018 Accessories Campaign

Bella Hadid must be shifting a whole lot of product for Max Mara since the brand has invited her back to front the latest accessories campaign. Bella had a remarkable 2017, with more magazine covers than any other model (or actress) and multiple ad campaigns for major fashion brands — and it seems 2018 is looking just as bright. Bella proves every inch her worth in the new Max Mara images, shot in the studio by Steven Meisel and styled by Carine Roitfeld, sporting a dewy makeup look and a wet hairstyle throughout.

Despite the team’s best efforts on set, our forum members weren’t too impressed with the outcome. “I guess Meisel really loves the Hadid sisters. I can’t help but think how amazing Grace Elizabeth would have looked in this. I like Bella, but she’s just not the type of girl for these ‘vintage/classy’ kind of shoots,” wrote guimon.

“She doesn’t look her best here. It’s like if she has seen a ghost!” Lola701 said. (more…)

Everyone Is Freaking Out Over Kylie Jenner’s Cover of Love Magazine (and Not in a Good Way)

Despite being a biannual publication, Love Magazine certainly keeps us on our toes between issues. The magazine’s annual LOVE advent featuring the likes of Hannah Ferguson, Hari Nef, Joan Smalls and Gigi Hadid continues through mid-January and last week, the magazine promoted the upcoming Spring/Summer 2018 edition with a cover tease featuring Kylie Jenner, shot by sister Kendall. No stranger to Love and a favorite of editor-in-chief Katie Grand, Kendall Jenner has appeared on the cover a handful of times and even shot 17 covers for the Spring 2017 edition. Back in the role of photographer, Kendall captures Kylie in a sweet sisterly moment for Love‘s latest. Mario Testino, who?

Members of our forums felt trolled by the whole situation and weren’t impressed. “Kylie by Kendall? Please stop Katie [Grand], you’re out of touch. These people are so yesterday,” complained anlabe32 upon seeing the cover.

“I usually defend Love with a burning passion but what the hell is this?” asked a horrified russianelf. (more…)

The New Gucci Campaign Is Everything Fashion Dreams Are Made Of

Leave it up to Alessandro Michele to push the boundaries (once again) as Gucci unveils its spectacular new advertising campaign for Spring 2018. Making a disappearing act is photographer Glen Luchford who has captured Michele’s flamboyant aesthetic since day one, as the work of surreal Spanish artist and illustrator Ignasi Monreal takes center stage this season. Monreal produced Gucci’s ‘Gift Giving’ campaign and now cements his relationship with the legendary Italian fashion house with yet another campaign. Titled Utopian Fantasy, the images are based on some of the most iconic fairytales and feature multiple hidden references.

“I won’t lie, this is gorgeous,” admitted dodencebt. (more…)
