Miss Piggy Outshines Hailey Baldwin on the Cover of Love Magazine

Leave it to Love Magazine to tap all the cool kids, with Hailey Baldwin being the latest It girl to cover the biannual publication. After Kendall Jenner photographed Love‘s covers last season, Alasdair McLellan was on hand to capture Jenner’s BFF for the Fall/Winter 2017 issue (or what seems to be just the cover preview at least). British ELLE‘s current cover star is joined by none other than Miss Piggy as they huddle up on location wearing a mixture of Ronald van der Kemp and custom Miu Miu.

Our forum members weren’t impressed from the get-go. “Reaching a new low,” commented sixtdaily the second the cover dropped.

“TBH, Miss Piggy stole the cover! My eyes went in on her immediately,” wrote MON in amazement. (more…)

Cara Delevingne Gives Major Attitude on Glamour’s August Cover

Whenever a mainstream fashion magazine features a model on the cover, our forums are (usually) thrilled. Last month, Glamour turned to model Ashley Graham and now, model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne fronts its August 2017 issue. Cara gives plenty of attitude in the Patrick Demarchelier-lensed cover photo, flexing her arms and clenching her fists while wearing new season Prada.

But a handful of our forum members weren’t impressed. “Feel like the concept was made with Katy Perry in mind, but they went with Cara last minute. The layout is hideous. HIDEOUS,” described a disgruntled MON the moment the cover dropped.

“I always like Cara but this cover is just a mess,” shared a far from impressed narcyza. (more…)

Emily Ratajkowski Shows Her Softer Side on Harper’s Bazaar Australia

Despite having a few Vogue covers under her belt, covering InStyle in March and being declared one of Marie Claire‘s fresh new faces this year, Emily Ratajkowski is still a rare sight at the newsstand (compared to the usual suspects we see each month). Emily now graces the August 2017 issue of Harper’s Bazaar Australia looking effortless and natural in the bold newsstand cover image (below), where she poses in the back of a convertible wearing Louis Vuitton.

Unfortunately, the cover left our forums divided. “This cover makes me realize how much presentation matters – if her image mostly consisted of work like this, I’d appreciate her as a gorgeous woman,” stated tigerrouge the moment the cover came to light.

“Love the image and styling, the blues are pleasing on the eye. Shame about the cover star. First Hailey Baldwin, now Emily. That said, this strategy of securing the lower tier Instagirls is a clever idea to keep the magazine relevant,” Benn98 chimed in. (more…)

Charlize Theron Channels Her Atomic Blonde Character on W Magazine’s August Cover

Fact: Charlize Theron is seriously photogenic. Whether she’s looking effortlessly sexy on WSJ or giving it her all in an advertising campaign for Christian Dior, Charlize never disappoints. Returning to the cover for a sixth time, Charlize fronts W Magazine‘s August 2017 edition, photographed by Alasdair McLellan and styled by Edward Enninful. Sporting platinum blonde hair, a bold makeup look and wearing shocking pink Proenza Schouler, Charlize appears to be in full character ito promote her highly anticipated Atomic Blonde movie.

The cover and accompanying spread divided our forums, however. “I simply cannot hate on this. My anticipation for Atomic Blonde is much too overwhelming. Even without my bias, it’s still a gorgeous cover (when considered in the right context). There’s definitely some retouching on her face, but it looks fine. Would never have imagined this to be shot by Alasdair,” wrote forum member Benn98 the moment the cover dropped.

“Yes, I’m here for Charlize channeling her Atomic Blonde character, but wow would never guess it’s by Alasdair!” Miss Dalloway echoed. (more…)

Bella Hadid Is Ravishing in Red on InStyle’s Vibrant August Cover

Laura Brown continues to do wonderful things with InStyle. She only officially took over the fashion glossy with the March issue and has already gathered the likes of Amy Schumer, Victoria Beckham, Karlie Kloss and Nicole Kidman to pose as cover stars. Now, for August 2017, Bella Hadid (currently one of fashion’s most in-demand of faces) is captured on location in the French countryside by photographer Kacper Kasprzyk.

The cover seemed to leave our forum members pleasantly surprised. “Interesting to see the second model cover in mere months. It’s literally only the Instagirls who get the mainstream covers. No brainer, of course, but hopefully it will lead to fewer celebs for InStyle. I don’t think the dress works for such an asymmetrical pose, and her leg looks prosthetic. Other than that it’s a perfect cover for InStyle,” commented Benn98.

“Weird to see Laura’s repositioning of InStyle to include models. Of all magazines, its concept since inception has been very strictly celebrities, so it’s interesting to think they’ve put more models on the cover this year than Vogue,” pointed out magsaddict. (more…)

Vogue Japan’s Latest Cover Featuring 67 Models Proves More Isn’t Always More

We’ve called out many magazines over the years for their questionable covers, but Vogue Japan’s latest takes the cake. The magazine kick-started 2017 on a high with a jaw-dropping Anna Ewers cover and has been riding a wave of success — until now. For August 2017, Vogue Japan and photographers Luca & Alessandro Morelli decided to photograph the majority of the Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2017 runway cast — 67 individuals to be exact — while rendering our forum members almost speechless.

“A new low,” stated guimon in horror. (more…)
