Cindy Crawford Looks Almost Unrecognizable on Vogue Turkey’s Absurd July 2018 Cover

While Kaia Gerber recently added an advertising campaign for Moschino and a pair of Vogue Italia covers to her ever-growing portfolio, mom Cindy Crawford reminds the industry she’s still in the game by scoring the cover of Vogue Turkey. The magazine went all out last month, giving us (a heavily Photoshopped) Mert Alas and Kendall Jenner as cover stars for its 100th issue, but this month the mag went old school with the OG 90s supermodel. Photographed by Miguel Reveriego and styled by Simon Robins, the all-American beauty sports straight hair and one of Max Mara’s signature camel coats on the cover. But just like with Town & Country back in May, Turkish Vogue seems to have missed the mark with its latest cover shoot.

Our forum members could barely believe their eyes. “Oh lord… I love Reveriego but why are all his Vogue covers so bad?” asked Ed.. the moment the cover dropped.

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen a less flattering photograph of Cindy,” a shell-shocked dodencebt stated.

“Yikes, it is very unflattering, not to mention cliché,” Benn98 added. “Did they really need to go with such a basic approach? What bothers me most is the fake-looking skin tone.”

Sharing the same sentiments was GivenchyHomme, commenting, “The retouching is overkill. The flat hair is hideous. This is not how you do Cindy Crawford. They did her dirty.”

“This is the worst cover image of Cindy I have ever seen and I love her. Even paparazzi pics are much better,” called out fierrousa.

“It’s truly awful. This is probably the worst professional photograph I’ve EVER seen of Cindy Crawford, and they put it on the cover of Vogue?! Absurd,” expressed happycanadian.

“This is genuinely terrible. I hate to say it but she looks actually unattractive here, bet she’s fuming!” 333101 declared.

Mackos wasn’t into it, either. “How it got approved as a cover, I’ll never know. Looks like one of those selfies that you thought was going to be cute but you delete it as soon as you see it.”

Are you dumbfounded over the outcome as much as we are? Join the conversation here.

Faretta, Joan Smalls, Amber Valletta and Anna Ewers Join Forces for Vogue Japan’s August 2018 Cover Shoot

Whether they’re shooting covers for Vogue Germany, Vogue Russia or advertising campaigns for the likes of Blumarine or Givenchy Jeans, Luigi & Iango always deliver knockout fashion imagery. The duo is back shooting Vogue Japan’s cover for August 2018 after a month’s hiatus, as models Faretta, Joan Smalls, Amber Valletta and Anna Ewers huddle together for the magazine’s signature group photo wearing an array of all-black Prada looks. Alongside the newsstand cover (below), Luigi & Iango released some alternative cover teasers (after the jump) which feature each girl solo, complete with styling from Anna Dello Russo and Sabino Pantone throughout.

Members of our forums began to call out their favorite almost immediately. “That Anna Ewers cover is STUNNING! My goodness my eyes went straight to it. Gorgeous,” raved MON at once.

“Yep, here for Anna’s cover and nothing else,” added dodencebt.

“Great covers. They should regard Anna as an industry icon at this point. All these covers, campaigns, beauty and fragrance contracts, and shows for years,” applauded dontbeadrag. (more…)

Isabel Marant’s Fall 2018 Campaign Is ‘So Isabel Marant It Hurts’

Our forum members practically begged Isabel Marant to switch up her casting last season after Anna Ewers appeared in her third consecutive campaign for the quintessential French fashion label. Marant must have heard our cries, adding model Vittoria Ceretti to star alongside Ewers for the Fall 2018 campaign (praise the fashion gods above). Welcoming back photographer Juergen Teller, the blonde and brunette twosome were photographed on location at the conceptual Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris and styled by French Vogue‘s Geraldine Saglio.

Did the change in casting manage to impress our forum members, though? “Very simple and cool. It doesn’t look too Photoshopped. The models are cool, I like Anna and they look natural. I approve of this campaign,” shared Perickles upon checking out the images.

“It’s really nothing special but I appreciate the simplicity and it will look nice in magazines,” Valentine27 added.

“I like it just because it’s so Isabel Marant that it hurts! The girls and even the choice of location are totally Isabel Marant! This is exactly the type of place where you can imagine seeing an IM woman,” pointed out Lola701.

16-Year-Old Kaia Gerber Stars on Vogue Italia’s July 2018 Covers

It’s hard to believe that Emanuele Farneti has been at Vogue Italia for a little over a year now. Exactly 12 months ago, a glorious Grace Elizabeth cover introduced the magazine’s new look, but it has been a slippery slope ever since, from a bland Steven Meisel cover back in March to Gigi Hadid‘s controversial cover in May. Now, following last month’s rather lifeless and depressing trio of covers, a joyous 16-year-old Kaia Gerber appears on two covers for July 2018. The current face of Moschino and Saint Laurent wears Valentino in both images, one photographed by Craig McDean (below) and the other by Collier Schorr (after the jump).

Kaia’s cover appearance sparked a few questions amongst our forum members. “I thought Condé Nast banned underage models from appearing in their magazines?” asked gunsnroses upon taking in the cover.

“When this girl is aged 19-22, her proportions will even out and her beauty will really begin to blossom. Too bad that she’ll probably be bored of modeling by then, having done it for five or so years at that point,” tigerrouge chimed in.

Binx Walton Is ‘Too Cool’ for the Fall 2018 Michael Kors Campaign

Sexual misconduct allegations involving a handful of fashion’s most sought-after photographers have shaken up the industry. As a result, Bruce Weber has been replaced at Louis Vuitton and Patrick Demarchelier was given the boot by Christian Dior for the new campaign season. Now, Mario Testino, who has shot Michael Kors campaigns for 14 years straight, is out for the brand’s mainline Fall 2018 ads. Replacing the Peruvian photographer is Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, who stick with Kors’ jet-setting aesthetic, capturing model Binx Walton lounging aboard a private jet in mix and match prints.

Were our forum members impressed, you ask? “Could be a Miss Vogue edit for all we know. And by that I mean filler at best. I&V did a terrible job here. Michael Kors functioned on being accessible yet stylish. The only shot here which still fits that mold is Binx in the black dress. He should consult his new team again,” said Benn98 at once.

“Kors is trying too hard to be cool. I love Binx but she is too cool for Kors. Tragic campaign for a tragic collection. He should call Fabien Baron,” Lola701 suggested.

A Fearless Gigi Hadid Does Extreme Sports on V Magazine’s Fall Preview Covers

By now, we’re pretty used to coming across one of the Hadid sisters whenever we pass by the newsstand. We’re only halfway through 2018 and Gigi has already appeared on the covers of Vogue Australia, Vogue Italia, Vogue Japan, British Vogue, Vogue Germany and US Harper’s Bazaar. V Magazine is the latest glossy to jump on the Hadid bandwagon, giving up its #114 Fall Preview issue to Gigi (her second appearance for the title). The current face of Moschino delivers a trio of adventurous covers photographed by Mario Sorrenti and styled by George Cortina while making us want to suddenly do some extreme sports.

Our forum members aren’t always kind to Gigi’s many appearances, but this time she receives rave reviews. “Hey, at least it’s something experimental, opulent and downright fabulous. Not necessarily a fashion photograph but I’ll take it,” commented dodencebt the moment the covers dropped.

“This looks better than her Olympic-theme cover story for US Vogue, we don’t really see her face though,” MDNA added.

“Definitely not what I was expecting at all! The cover is so refreshing, not only for V, but also for Gigi and Sorrenti. I’m really not the biggest fan of his work, but this looks great,” applauded Benn98. (more…)
