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…)

Our forum members loved it. “Great cover, to the point, no nonsense, festive!” applauded Nymphaea.

“Nice that they haven’t complicated things and have let her beauty come through. But I’m biased because I think she’s great,” chimed in tigerrouge. (more…)

Gal Gadot Commands Attention on ELLE’s Striking December Cover

The December covers are starting to roll in with US ELLE being the latest to drop its offering for the holiday season. Following the magazine’s ‘Women of Hollywood‘ issue and what is believed to be Robbie Myers‘ last edition for ELLE, actress Gal Gadot commands our attention with a striking, straightforward cover image. The Wonder Woman actress was photographed by Paola Kudacki wearing a black Solid & Striped swimsuit teamed with a selection of Tiffany & Co. jewelry.

Members of our forums were pleasantly surprised. “I quite like this! The symmetry, the tan, and overall athletic strong woman vibe. I think we should judge this next to the rest of ELLE‘s 2017 covers, then we’ll see how strong it is. Robbie is definitely ending on a high, IMO,” Benn98 stated.

“While I hate it when magazines shun a festive cover for December, I’m liking the look of this! I like how the styling reflects Gal’s Wonder Woman character by the stylist’s choice of jewelry, Gal’s commanding presence and the strong pose. This is one of those cover images which is just guaranteed to work,” voiced vogue28. (more…)

Meryl Streep’s December Cover of Vogue: Divine or Disappointing?

Your favorite fashion glossies are currently pulling out all the stops as 2017 slowly comes to an end and American Vogue serves up the divine Meryl Streep as its December cover star. The magazine has been celebrating its monumental 125th anniversary since March and the celebrations come to an end with a new ‘Then & Now’ themed issue. Who better than Vogue regular Annie Leibovitz to capture the 68-year-old actress for the occasion? Participating in one of Leibovitz’s signature studio shoots, Meryl looks effortless and at ease in the warm and inviting portrait cover image, wearing a Michael Kors Collection blouse and khaki green trousers.

At first, our forum members were in awe. “Beautifully unexpected to see Meryl on the cover. I don’t remember them ever having a woman her age on the cover, love it,” commented Miss Dalloway straight away.

“I think when you have such a larger-than-life legend like Meryl on a cover, you really don’t need big styling and production. Just a good portrait and she sells the whole thing by herself. And that’s what they did right here. It’s a perfect December cover,” admired Marc10. (more…)
