Vogue Poland Debuts to Mixed Reviews With Anja Rubik and Malgosia Bela on the Cover

It’s hard to believe that it’s taken Condé Nast this long to give us a Polish edition of Vogue, yet Vogue Polska makes its long-awaited debut this week on newsstands. While a select few magazines are cutting back in 2018, the release gives a much-welcomed boost to the industry and reminds us that there’s still a demand for print. Veteran Polish models Anja Rubik and Malgosia Bela appropriately take to the inaugural cover, photographed by Juergen Teller on location in the middle of Warsaw as the Palace of Culture and Science looms in the foggy background.

Unfortunately, the magazine’s debut failed to make an impression on our forum members. “Feels like I’m looking at Vogue Polish Architecture or something. Pretty weak debut cover for me,” stated Ed the moment the cover dropped.

“Even Małgosia and Anja can’t save this cover. Very weak debut,” noted narcyza. (more…)

You’ll Either Love or Loathe Luna Bijl’s Cover of Vogue Netherlands for March 2018

No doubt, Luna Bijl is earning her It model status this year. She’s the face of Chanel this season, a firm favorite of Vogue Paris‘ Emmanuelle Alt, recently covered Vogue Spain and is currently stealing the spotlight on Vogue Japan‘s group cover. Vogue Netherlands is the latest to jump on the Luna bandwagon, giving the Dutch beauty the cover of the March 2018 issue. Luna serves a vivid beauty look, effortlessly working the lens of photographer Richard Burbridge.

Despite the team’s best efforts, the majority of our forum members weren’t here for it. “It’s very Burbridge, but I feel like I would love this if it was the cover of Vogue Beauty instead,” acknowledged simon the moment the cover struck.

“It’s a try-hard wannabe of Vogue Paris. The 80s theme. The fonts. The layout. This feels like the twin sister who desperately craves for attention,” mocked MON. (more…)

Lupita Nyong’o Is Perfection Personified on Allure’s March Cover

Allure‘s motto for 2018 must be “go big or go home” because the magazine continues to make bold cover choices, including the newly unveiled cover for March 2018. After the insipid Dakota Johnson offering last month, the magazine needed to inject some charisma back onto its cover and you can always count on Lupita Nyong’o to do just that. The Black Panther actress just graced the cover of Vogue for January and now makes her debut as an Allure cover girl, and we couldn’t be happier. Photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, Lupita and hairstylist Vernon Francois were given free reign on set and the outcome is simply sublime.

Members of our forums were in love with the images. “OMG yes, it’s giving me late 70s disco vibes!” raved GERGIN immediately.

“Now, there’s a cover! STUNNING! Can’t wait to see this in print!” wrote Miss Dalloway. (more…)

Irina Shayk Goes Sleek and Sophisticated for Vogue Arabia’s February Covers

It’s hard to believe Vogue Arabia celebrates its one year anniversary next month. Ever since its debut, the publication has had a solid run and the February 2018 issue starring Irina Shayk is no different (we do love a good Irina cover of Vogue, whether she’s giving good face on Vogue Japan, vamping it up on Vogue Russia or getting into the party spirit on Vogue Italia). Following in the footsteps of Imaan Hammam, Pooja Mor and Halima Aden, the Russian bombshell goes minimal on two sleek and sophisticated covers, photographed by Miguel Reveriego for Arabian Vogue.

Alicia Vikander Is Photoshopped Into Oblivion on Vogue’s March Cover

In the world of fashion magazines, March is the second biggest issue of the year (after September, of course), so why aren’t the major publications pulling out all the stops? Vogue is the latest to disappoint, adding yet another over-Photoshopped and unrecognizable cover star to the newsstand this month. Anna Wintour welcomes back Alicia Vikander to the cover, captured by photographer Steven Klein. The Tomb Raider actress wears Louis Vuitton (natch) in the over-processed photo, styled by Tonne Goodman.

Our forum members were left shaking their heads. “Too robotic looking if that makes sense. Steven Klein’s photography is not for US Vogue covers. Also horrible styling,” scolded Scotty.

“I mean that can’t possibly her real-life skin tone? She looks 20 years older! Klein usually likes this kinda tanned skin, and robotic feel so I bet it’s all him, but that editorial belongs in W, not Vogue!!” Miss Dalloway slammed. (more…)
