Karlie Kloss Is a Victim of Bad Styling on Vogue Thailand’s April Cover

We love to see Karlie Kloss on the cover of our favorite fashion glossies. The all-American model has a total of 38 Vogue covers in her portfolio and she now scores her 39th with the April 2018 issue of Vogue Thailand. The last time the magazine took our fancy was with a perfect Emily DiDonato offering but its latest cover has received attention for all the wrong reasons. Following a disappointing cover for Porter’s summer issue, Karlie’s newest Vogue cover, shot by Russell James, received some backlash in our forums.

Our forum members weren’t afraid to call out the magazine and everyone involved. “Trying to be a sultry sex bomb, not working,” stated Nymphaea the moment the cover struck.

“Nothing works here, and the hair is the worst,” KateTheGreatest added.

“The hair doesn’t suit her. And the neck scarf can definitely go as well. I think the shot would’ve been better outdoors,” voiced Benn98. (more…)

Charlize Theron Wears Couture on the Beach for US ELLE’s Questionable May Cover

Nina Garcia’s feet are now firmly under the EIC’s desk at US ELLE and she continues to attract heavyweight cover subjects. We got Angelina Jolie for March, Kim Kardashian for April and now May goes to Charlize Theron. (It’s hard to believe Charlize’s last cover for the magazine was way back in June 2003.) Shot on Malibu beachby master fashion photographer Mario Sorrenti, the actress sports a swimsuit paired with a full-length fringed Christian Dior Haute Couture coat — everyone’s go-to beach look, right? — styled byGeorge Cortina.

Almost immediately, our eagle-eyed forum members sensed something was off. “That’s the best photo and tagline they could come up with? Exactly why I haven’t bought US ELLE in years,” said KateIsGr8.

“She’s normally very photogenic, but this is certainly one of her worst covers. Not her fault though. Why was it taken from that angle? And with the cape?” wondered Benn98. (more…)

Kaia Gerber Stars on i-D Magazine’s Lackluster Summer Cover

After another solid runway season for Fall 2018, Kaia Gerber continues to add an impressive body of work to her ever-growing portfolio. Following covers for Vogue Paris, Love Magazine and an advertising campaign for none other than Chanel, the promising 16-year-old now stars on the cover of i-D Magazine. The publication did our forums proud with the last issue’s diverse cast and series of inspiring covers. Going all out once again, i-D taps the mini-me of Cindy Crawford for Summer 2018’s ‘Super Youth’ issue, photographed by Mario Sorrenti wearing Gucci.

Despite the magazine’s best efforts at profiling Kaia, our forum members weren’t into it. “I like the idea of Kaia for i-D but the cover looks very Instagram-like. I don’t think the effortless vibe works enough to elevate these images the way they intended. Perhaps with better styling,” quipped dodencebt.

“Snore. The bare minimum of effort was put into this,” exclaimed 333101. (more…)

Gigi Hadid Gives Good Face on Her Third Cover of Harper’s Bazaar

Harper’s Bazaar sure loves to recycle its cover stars and welcomes back newsstand gold Gigi Hadid for the third time, less than twelve months after the American beauty’s last. And it’s no surprise considering Gigi’s previous Bazaar appearance was the publication’s best selling issue of the year. The team hasn’t changed much this time around either, with photographer and current Glenda Bailey favorite Mariano Vivanco also making a comeback. For the newsstand cover (below), Gigi serves good face, looking ravishing in red Versace, and is joined by a canine friend while wearing Chanel for the limited cover sent out to subscribers (after the jump).

Most of our forum members were impressed with the covers. “I don’t expect a huge amount from US Bazaar, but the newsstand cover delivers on what I do – generic beauty and glamour,” said a perfectly content tigerrougue.

“Love the whole thing, great covers and editorial,” TeeVanity wrote.

“She looks gorgeous on the close-ups, exactly what I would expect from a beauty issue,” kokobombon added. (more…)

Natalia Vodianova’s Simple Vogue Poland Cover Wins Over Our Forums

Vogue Poland’s debut issue for March 2018 didn’t exactly receive a standing ovation from our forum members and the magazine’s second cover with Eva Herzigova practically flopped. Fortunately, it looks like the third time’s a charm as Natalia Vodianova stars on the May issue, photographed by Christian MacDonald. The Russian beauty does what she does best, giving us major fashion and attitude in head-to-toe Saint Laurent, styled by Veronique Didry. What else could we ask for?

Members of our forums were pleasantly surprised by the magazine this month. “Interesting cover, like Vogue Italia and Vogue Paris blended together to make this cover,” TeeVanity pointed out.

“BAM! I love it! A great use of this overused Saint Laurent. Very dynamic, and this is what Vogue Paris should look like,” added gazebo. (more…)

Amal Clooney Makes Her Debut on the Cover of Vogue for May 2018

Anna Wintour’s darlings continue to grace the cover of Vogue and her latest conquest is Amal Clooney, who fronts the May 2018 issue, photographed by Vogue regular Annie Leibovitz. Along with the magazine’s fashion director, Tonne Goodman, Leibovitz takes us inside the Clooneys’ English home for an intimate cover shoot. In the newsstand cover image (below), this year’s Met Gala host flashes a warm and inviting smile, wearing a bright pink Alexander McQueen dress.

Unfortunately, Amal’s debut Vogue cover wasn’t enough to earn the seal of approval from our forum members. “I love Amal but this cover is awful!! It looks like a random catalog!” expressed nastassia the second the cover came to light.

“Is it on purpose US Vogue looks more like a lifestyle than a fashion magazine most of the time?” asked celloiof.

People magazine is that you?” forum member MDNA quipped, suggesting the cover image wasn’t worthy of Vogue. (more…)
