Bella Hadid, Troye Sivan and Sasha Lane Usher in Teen Vogue’s Relaunch

In November, Teen Vogue announced it would be cutting back from nine issues a year to four, as well as increase its format to a larger sized book. True to its word, the publication’s highly anticipated relaunch is here, entitled Volume 1. Offering a selection of three unique and diverse covers to choose from, the magazine tapped Bella Hadid (below), Troye Sivan and Sasha Lane to star on Teen Vogue‘s new love-themed edition.

Unfortunately, our forum members weren’t feeling the title’s overhaul. “Of all the things they decided to retain, they chose the font. bye,” mocked MON the minute the covers began to surface.

“Saw this in the bookstore, very disappointing redesign. The new size is very awkward and unpleasant to read IMO. I thought now that they only release four issues per year, they would’ve made it more like a ‘proper and collectable’ like Lula or Violet,” disapproved Rigida. (more…)

Lexi Boling and Jordan Barrett Star in the Dull Versace Jeans Campaign for Spring 2017

Photographers Luigi & Iango have been killing it lately with their flawless Vogue Japan covers over the past three months. Therefore, our forums were expecting even more greatness with the unveiling of their new Versace Jeans campaign for Spring 2017.

“This is a big mess. Gosh it looks awful! The models, the poses, the styling. Nope! NEXT!” added a far from impressed Bertrando3. (more…)

Lottie Moss Stars in Chanel’s Youthful Eyewear Campaign for Spring 2017

Lottie Moss has had plenty experience posing for the likes of Vogue Paris, Harper’s Bazaar Russia, Calvin Klein and Bvlgari. Considering half-sister Kate Moss‘ history with both Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld, it should come as no surprise that the 19-year-old was Lagerfeld’s choice to follow in the footsteps of Willow Smith, Lily-Rose Depp and Kristen Stewart for his new Chanel eyewear campaign.

Lottie’s latest has left our forums divided. “Chanel has the ugliest eyewear of all brands! My gawd, they are really cheap looking 99% of the times. Whoever is in charge of it should get fired,” proclaimed a far from impressed Creative.

“Just no,” stated an uninterested 333101. (more…)

Our forums are huge advocates of diversity in the industry, so it comes as no surprise that we are all thrilled to see a transgender model on the cover of a major international fashion magazine. Valentina Sampaio makes history by becoming the first-ever transgender woman to grace the cover of Vogue, posing on the March 2017 issue of Vogue Paris.
