Is Lady Gaga a Good Fit for Tiffany & Co’s New Legendary Style Campaign?

As much as we love seeing them in the pages of our favorite fashion magazines, Tiffany & Co’s print ads don’t typically generate a lot of buzz on our forums. That’s all changed now that Vogue‘s Grace Coddington has been tapped to style the brand’s ‘Legendary Style’ campaigns. Having already completed one campaign with the likes of Lupita Nyong’o and Christy Turlington, Coddington secured none other than Lady Gaga for the latest installment. Shot by David Sims, Gaga is at her most demure…but there’s something off about the ads.

Our feisty forum members weren’t afraid to tell it like it is. “What drugs was the marketing department smoking when they agreed to cast this vile person for their campaign…? Casting her for your brand is self-sabotage. She has no style, no integrity, no originality and she is the epitome of a charmless and graceless woman. Even her poses are so stiff and forced. She cheapens the brand. Tiffany got punk’d,” argued Phuel.

“She must have some very powerful support cause ain’t nobody checking for her now. She also looks terrible,” added arlekinderrabal. (more…)

Gal Gadot Stars on W Magazine’s ‘Beautiful but Boring’ May Cover

W Magazine isn’t afraid to cast a wide net when it comes to cover subjects, like December’s leggy cover featuring Barbra Streisand. For May 2017, the magazine has selected the underutilized Gal Godot. Photographed by Craig McDean, the Wonder Woman actress gets a make-under in the striking, simple cover shot, with stylist Edward Enninful opting for a classic beige Burberry trench.

The cover generated a mixture of feedback on our forums. “Gorgeous portrait of a stunning woman,” commented anlabe32 the second the cover struck.

“A great coup for W, and this is simply a gorgeous shot. I’m not a fan of the type of films she does (superhero stuff, cheesy comedy thrillers, Fast & Furious), but I adore her personality,” Benn98 added. (more…)

Model Ellen Rosa Lands Her First Solo Vogue Cover for Vogue Brazil

You have to applaud magazines likeVogue Brazil that regularly champion homegrown talent. The magazine loves a good Gisele Bündchen cover appearance and recently served up a picture perfect Lais Ribeiro cover. The latest Brazilian model to grace the cover is Ellen Rosa, who makes her debut for April 2017. Photographed by Giampaolo Sgura, the current face of Miu Miu delivers two unique covers for our forums to deliberate over this month.

According to our forums, one cover most definitely trumped the other. “Oh dear. That first cover (above) is just wrong on so many levels. Ellen has yet to impress me in print, but come on… this is like a bad joke. From the styling to the colors to her pose and expression. Second one (below) is better, because her face is one in a million, but still drab as hell,” slammed myran the moment both covers appeared.

“Yes, yes, and yes! Neither cover works for me. The first cover highlight the butchering of that splendid collection with her slouchy pose. Then you add to the fact that she’s simply no oil painting, so the beauty cover is a miss for me as well,” stated Benn98. (more…)

tFS Forum Members Hate the New Louis Vuitton x Jeff Koons Campaign Almost as Much as the Collection

Louis Vuitton’s latest collaboration with world-renowned American artist Jeff Koons has been met with mixed reviews. Some describe it as “a joyous art history lesson” while others liken it to “a souvenir bag from a museum gift shop.” Our forum members weren’t quite as kind. Still, the sure-to-wind-up-on-eBay collection is likely to find many fans amongst the fashion set. The new campaign promoting the Vuitton x Koons collection stars Nicolas Ghesquière’s muse Alicia Vikander, captured by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott.

Our forum members seemed to like the campaign about as much as they liked the collection. “A boring actress and tacky looking bags, what a disaster for LV,” exclaimed a horrified liberty33r1b.

“I still don’t understand why they try to make Alicia happen, to me she’s so weak,” echoed an underwhelmed badgalcrush. (more…)

Despite a Pleasant Liu Wen Cover, tFS Forum Members Blast Vogue China for Hiring Terry Richardson

Our forums were engulfed in a heated debate when controversial photographer Terry Richardson shot Porter‘s current cover and now he’s back again, shooting for Vogue China. Once a forum favorite, the Chinese fashion bible has fallen short lately, including last month’s disappointing Bella Hadid cover. For May 2017, the magazine welcomes back familiar face Liu Wen, who serves up a fairly pleasant cover image wearing head-to-toe Gucci.

Members of our forums weren’t afraid to call out the magazine. “A Vogue cover by Terry Richardson? What’s wrong with the EIC of Vogue China” questioned a frustrated OllieJE.

“Shame on you for using Terry! And the result is just as bad,” noticed Nymphaea. (more…)

The Brit actress rarely takes a bad photo and this latest appearance is no exception. Photographed by Daniel Jackson, Sienna captivates in a gorgeous close-up that will have you racing to the newsstand for a copy.

Forum members had nothing but praise for Sienna. “Holy smoke!! This is so breathtakingly good, it will certainly draw you in. Will definitely be getting this issue as I’m interested to hear what she’s got to say. I like the fact that the image is understated, yet so sleek and chic,” Benn98 commented the moment the cover dropped.

“This really is a perfect Allure cover!” said a delighted Miss Dalloway. (more…)
