Karl Lagerfeld Posed With Lily-Rose Depp for His Guest-Edited Edition of Vogue Paris

The holiday editions of Vogue Paris are usually a pretty big deal and it was announced on our forums in October that Karl Lagerfeld was scheduled to guest edit the magazine’s double holiday edition. Much to our delight, the Kaiser himself poses on the front cover for December – and who better to join him than girl-of-the-moment Lily-Rose Depp? The pair were photographed by Lagerfeld favorite Heidi Slimane for the occasion, captured in black and white (another Lagerfeld signature). It was only last year that her mother Vanessa Paradis guest edited the title and with Lily-Rose’s affiliation with Chanel, our forum members aren’t entirely surprised by the outcome.

Members of our forums weren’t afraid to vent. “All this waiting for… this! Bored by Vogue Paris,” wrote CocoM.

“Grandad and grandchild! The same boring concept à la Cindy [Crawford] with Kaia [Gerber] on Vogue Netherlands. Karl looks like he’s been to a plastic surgeon like Michael Jackson! Lily looks lovely but brings nothing extra. I expected more from Hedi, this is very bland from him: a standard family portrait,” said a disapproving Nymphaea. (more…)

Jennifer Lawrence Looks Lika a Silver Screen Goddess on Vanity Fair’s Holiday Cover

Aside from the odd Christian Dior handbag campaign, there’s been a startling lack of Jennifer Lawrence on the fashion circuit. Amazingly, Jennifer only appeared on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar and Glamour in 2016, but now Vanity Fair has tapped the actress for its annual Holiday Issue. In true Peter Lindbergh form, Jennifer looks every inch the silver screen goddess wearing a figure-enhancing and delightfully festive red Christian Dior dress in the cinematic shot.

“Yikes, it looks like the Italian version of Vanity Fair. Not a bad shot, but so budget and amateur. This is Jennifer’s sixth VF cover, three of them were for the Hollywood edition, the rest all OG. Quite an accomplishment,” pointed out Benn98.

“I expect better from Lindbergh, but perhaps his black and white imagery is too artsy for a Vanity Fair cover?” asked a disapproving kokobombon. (more…)

Natalia Vodianova Is the Ultimate Supermodel on Harper’s Bazaar Spain’s Festive December Cover

Our forums are notorious for craving festive magazine covers when it comes to our favorite December issues. So it should come as no surprise that we’re delighted with Harper’s Bazaar Spain right now. Giving us Natalia Vodianova as its cover model of choice and following in the footsteps of Joan Smalls and Bella Hadid, Natalia lends her supermodel status to Bazaar‘s front cover to close out 2016. Photographed by Thomas Whiteside, the Russian beauty looks fantastic wearing Louis Vuitton as she poses before a rich red studio backdrop — and we love it.

Members of our forums made their feelings clear. “That’s brilliant. One of my favorite covers in a while, the styling just fits her to perfection,” noted Wintergreen.

“I think this is gorgeous! I’m such a sucker for red at this time of year and I do love how festive this feels — yet still maintaining their image as a fashion magazine. I’m struggling to find a negative about this cover to be completely honest and think Natalia looks fabulous. Bravo Bazaar Spain!” championed vogue28. (more…)

How Did Vogue Spain and Mario Testino Manage to Take a Bad Picture of Penélope Cruz?

We all know Penélope Cruz photographs like an absolute dream, so how did Vogue Spain manage to mess up her December cover shoot? The Spanish title has had plenty of hits and misses this year, churning out some of its most compelling covers ever at the beginning of 2016 followed by a bit of a rough patch over the past couple of months. For the latest cover, the ever-gorgeous Penélope poses for Mario Testino, wearing Agent Provocateur lingerie and a Burberry coat worn over one shoulder.

Members of our forums were beyond unimpressed with the results. “The lighting makes her looks sick IMO, like jaundice! I like the styling but the hair and makeup could have been better,” said kokobombon upon seeing the cover.

Also not a fan of Testino’s lighting was Wintergreen, acknowledging, “The lighting is terrible.” (more…)

Is 15-Year-Old Kaia Gerber Too Young to Be the Face of Marc Jacobs Beauty?

Kaia Gerber has had a pretty amazing year. She posed alongside her supermodel mom Cindy Crawford on the cover of Vogue Paris back in April, went solo on the cover of POP and managed to land a place in an Alexander Wang ad campaign. So it should really come as no surprise to see Marc Jacobs snapping up the 15-year-old beauty as the face of his new makeup collection. Back in September, Jacobs gave us a sneak peek at the David Sims and Katie Grand-styled shoot, but now the official campaign image has dropped — leaving our forum members with a few questions.

“Undeniably beautiful, but there’s something eerily CGI about this image. Kaia still photographs much better than most nepotism girls. I’m getting odd Brooke Shields vibes from her in general,” Benn98 pointed out the minute the first campaign image dropped.

“I think Zendaya would have been a better choice. There is just something off about Kaia’s face. I can’t get behind it,” GivenchyHomme chimed in. (more…)

Jessica Chastain and Vogue Ukraine Just Delivered the Most Interesting and Unexpected Cover of the Month

Vogue Ukraine, which has been quietly killing it with its cover designs over the past few months, rarely gets the recognition it deserves. Executing cover shots and layouts that most other fashion glossies wouldn’t dare to try, Ukrainian Vogue has yet another hit on its hands for December. Jessica Chastain, photographed by Dusan Reljin, enchants on the bold and icy cover image — and our forum members have nothing but praise for the current face of Prada.

We love to give credit where credit it’s due. “I only come here to check out Vogue Ukraine, and I am seldom disappointed,” exclaimed a more than satisfied marsnoop2 the moment the cover dropped.

“That’s a pretty amazing cover,” confessed mistress_f. (more…)
