Lara Stone Works Her Magic on W Korea’s Stunning December Covers

Whether she’s fronting Vogue Turkey, Vogue Mexico, Vogue Italia or posing nude alongside Doutzen Kroes on Vogue Netherlands, Lara Stone slays every single time. W Korea welcomes back the Dutch bombshell, closing out the year and gifting us with a duo of sexy and wonderfully over-the-top covers. Photographed by Matt Easton, the current face of Balmain puts the likes of Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid to shame as she gives a master class on how to flawlessly work the lens.

As expected, our forum members were thrilled with the outcome. “I love the second one (below)! And obviously it’s always great to see Lara Stone,” sighed a delighted GinAndTonic upon checking out the two covers.

“Wow Lara looks great here! I’m loving these covers, love the styling and the pose in the second cover – I might prefer this one,” Valentine27 chimed in. (more…)

Mica Arganaraz Fails to Excite on Vogue Russia’s December Cover

Vogue Russia has had a fairly successful string of covers over the past year, managing to secure the likes of Natalia Vodianova, Irina Shayk, Birgit Kos and Marine Vacth. The final cover of 2017 stars Argentinean beauty Mica Arganaraz, the current face of Michael Kors, photographed by Patrick Demarchelier. Mica poses on the studio floor wearing sparkly Louis Vuitton while sporting her signature curls.

According to our forum members, Mica’s hairstyle seemed to bring the cover down. “Someone do something with her f*cking hair! She’s a g*ddamn model for Christ sakes. I’m tired of this sh*t,” fumed A.D.C.

“Trust me. Once the hair goes. She goes,” added liv4beauty. (more…)

Vogue Ukraine Closes Out the Year With Yet Another Stellar Cover

This has been a monumental year for Vogue Ukraine. Producing fantastic cover shoots one after the other, the title has secured a spot as one of the best international fashion glossies of 2017. Last month’s covers featuring Othilia Simon received a lot of praise and this month’s covers are just as outstanding. Newbie model Dorit Revelis makes her debut on three dazzling front covers, shot by Ukrainian-born photographer Jens Ingvarsson (also making his Vogue cover debut).

TFS forum members continue to be impressed by Vogue Ukraine, but seem to be tiring of the multi-cover trend. “The second cover (below) is ALL I NEED. Pure perfection. The others make it look like a child’s magazine. However, please STOP IT with the multi-covers. It doesn’t add anything. The multi-covers every month shows that they’re undecided so they just release all. Stop it. Pick the BEST photo and stick to it,” MON suggested.

“I agree 100%,” replied MyNameIs. “It’s not just a problem at Vogue Ukraine, but most publications. The middle cover is perfection. The other two seem like an afterthought. I do love the colors in all three though.” (more…)

Edie Campbell Poses for Vogue China’s Disappointing December Cover

There’s no denying that Vogue China has let standards slip this year as the magazine has produced a series of misses. From making the unforgivable mistake of hiring Terry Richardson to doing Karlie Kloss a disservice on the June cover, our forum members have spent plenty of time calling the magazine out. (The knockout Gigi Hadid cover for March provesit hasn’t all been downhill.) As Vogue China closes the book on 2017, Edie Campbell makes a return to the cover, posing for photographer Patrick Demarchelier in the great outdoors wearing a look from Chanel’s Cruise 2018 collection.

After checking out the cover, our forum members were divided in their opinion. “It looks like a Vogue Australia cover,” described OllieJE straight away.

“It does look very Vogue Australia, but I find it exceptionally beautiful,” said Benn98. “It’s nice to see something natural for this edition, especially after the Kris [Grikaite] cover. I like everything, the dress against that earthy setting, her makeup, pose.” (more…)

Alexa Chung Is a Random Choice for Vogue Netherlands’ December Cover

As soon as we heard the news of Alexandra Shulman‘s British Vogue departure, our first thought was that Alexa Chung would never grace the cover of Vogue again (since Shulman was Alexa’s biggest and most loyal supporter). Now, out of nowhere, Alexa surprises us on the cover of Vogue Netherlands for December 2017, photographed by Marc de Goot. Wearing a wild Ronald van de Kemp creation, the Brit style icon turned fashion designer looks far better than she did on British Vogue‘s “tragic” June 2017 cover.

TFS forum members were left scratching their heads over the choice of cover star. “How random…” voiced forum member MON upon seeing the cover, about to set the tone for comments to follow.

“I hardly doubt anyone knows her here… that is if they will even recognize her,” added a dumbfounded anlabe32. (more…)

Amber Heard Wears the Glitter Eye Trend on Allure’s December Cover

It’s hard to believe that Amber Heard’s last notable cover appearance on a fashion magazine was for Marie Claire back in December 2015. Allure now reminds us of Amber’s existence with the newly unveiled cover for December 2017. This has been a monumental year for Allure with a string of successful covers, including a diversity issue, an anti-anti-aging issue and a cover starring hijab-wearing model Halima Aden. Unfortunately, Allure‘s latest disappoints with a close-up of a bejeweled Amber, photographed by Daniel Jackson.

Our forum members weren’t here for it. “Didn’t even realize this was her,” exclaimed 333101 the moment the cover struck.

“I think the new Allure is allergic to glamour, instead they churn out looks more suited to getting wasted at a music festival. Amber already looks like she is,” wrote an uninterested tigerrouge. (more…)
