Anne Hathaway Gives ELLE Its Best Cover in a Long Time

The last time Anne Hathaway appeared on the cover of one of our favorite fashion glossies was back in September 2015 for InStyle. So you can imagine our delight when the actress turned up on the cover of ELLE this month. After receiving backlash from our forums for its overdone Solange Knowles cover last month, the magazine strips it all back for April’s gorgeous cover. Shot by ELLE regular Terry Tsiolis, Anne poses up a storm wearing a sexy, blush-toned Dolce & Gabbana dress in the ethereal image.

Forum members couldn’t believe their eyes. “WOW, this is great. Love the colors and she looks good. For once she doesn’t look like a kid who’s playing dress-up. Her best work for a magazine so far,” applauded fluxxx the second the cover came to light.

“Wow this is amazing! Best I’ve ever seen Selena, she finally looks properly sexy and mature. And I’m loving the ‘Linda by Steven Meisel in Cuba’ vibe of the ed, she pulls it off so well,” raved Marc10. (more…)

Vogue Italia’s E-Commerce Themed Cover Makes Giorgio Armani Look Like ASOS

Due to the tragic passing of Franca Sozzani back in December, Emanuele Farneti makes his debut as editor-in-chief ofVogue Italia this month. Sticking with tradition, Steven Meisel was Farneti’s photographer of choice to capture the anything-but-traditional cover story. Meisel (a forum favorite) cast model Lulu for an online shopping-inspired shoot, which somehow manages to make Giorgio Armani look more like ASOS on the disappointing March 2017 cover.

Most of our forum members despised the cover concept. “How ridiculous!! I have zero interest in this concept, and this is such an unappealing cover!” screamed Miss Dalloway.

“What a letdown! Pushing an ‘online shopping’ themed cover in 2017? And I know the images are supposed to mimic those lifeless ASOS lookbooks, but it simply doesn’t work for a cover,” chimed in a less than impressed Benn98. (more…)

Marie Claire’s Priyanka Chopra Cover for April Falls Flat

What’s happening over at Marie Claire? The magazine has let standards slip lately, churning out a series of underwhelming covers with some questionable styling choices. Scarlett Johansson managed to make the magazine’s March cover work by striking a powerful pose but Priyanka Chopra’s cover shoot for April 2017 falls flat. Photographed by Tesh, the Quantico actress (who usually photographs beautifully) looks a little lost and uneasy in the cover photo wearing an unattractive Gucci number selected by Alison Edmond.

Our forum members weren’t afraid to call out the American title. “There’s too much going on here — the ‘fierce’ face, hand pose, weird S&M studded leather shrug, and the fact that they’ve stripped her boobs away,” pointed out Benn98 the moment the cover struck.

“I usually always like Priyanka in print but here the result is TERRIBLE. The fierce over the top and crazy pose, the AWFUL styling, those leather things on her shoulders, the bad layout of the coverlines and the hair is baaaad (the person who did this should be fired ASAP!). This is not a good cover. OMG!” ranted a horrified Bertrando3. (more…)

Christy Turlington Is Captivating in a Reprinted Cover Shoot for Harper’s Bazaar Australia

Harper’s Bazaar Australia has a tendency to successfully use reprinted images and make them their own. The magazine brings its A game once again for April 2017, opting to use Spanish Bazaar‘s cover shoot with Christy Turlington. Selecting a totally different (and much better) shot than its counterpart, the 90s supermodel captivates in a printed Prada outfit.

However, Bazaar Australia’s latest choice of reprint has our forums divided. “This cover is wonderful! Such a fantastic, realistic and clean shot of Christy which I cannot help but to love. I love what they’ve done in terms of selecting the image, the composition, the colours, the fonts, etc. Brilliant!” rejoiced vogue28.

“Absolutely agree, I LOOOOOOVE this cover,” approved Bertrando3. (more…)
