Shailene Woodley Looks ‘Awkward’ on ELLE’s April Cover (Forum Buzz)

After receiving mixed reviews for its March cover featuring Katy Perry, ELLE once again disappoints our forum members with its April issue. The mag tapped Shailene Woodley as its latest cover subject, coinciding with the anticipated release of the film Insurgent. Photographed by Michael Thompson, the 23-year-old poses on the beach wearing a black swimsuit with arms swung awkwardly behind her head.

Forum members descended on the thread not knowing what to expect. “The makeup does not work for her, the styling totally wrong! At last an outdoor shot though, shame it’s not any good!” slammed Miss Dalloway, not approving of the image.

“HAHHAHA OH MY GOD. What on earth is this. Is this a cover or an ad for some armpit whitening soap? First of all that makeup is f-ed up. I wish it weren’t a smokey eye because her eyes look dead and it kills the eyes even more. She looks like a god damn alien. Secondly, what on earth is up with that pose. It looks so awkward and unflattering. The styling is awful by all means! The art director should be reprimanded for such [a] layout,” MON commented. Tell us what you really think!

Kokobombon was quick to agree: “I like Shailene but this is awful imo. The makeup and the Photoshop on her face, the color scheme, the pose, the styling. I don’t like a single thing about this cover.”

Also feeling the same way was honeycombchild. “Well that’s pretty awkward. I also have literally zero interest in seeing someone’s armpits in a shot personally,” he noted.

“Poor Shailene, what a terrible shot of her. And the yellow fonts are so shocking. Overall a bad cover,” disapproved Benn98.

Add your two cents about the cover here. ELLE‘s April 2015 issue is available on newsstands March 17.

The temperature is slowly rising, and things are also heating up over at V Magazine. For the glossy’s latest issue (no. 94), it tapped an all-black cast – something you don’t see every day – for a shoot with Steven Klein called “Fight Fire with Fire.” Models Joan Smalls, Riley Montana, Ajak Deng and Maria Borges pose like daredevils next to burning cars.

The ferocious femmes, styled by Arianne Phillips, are decked out in designer duds from Tom Ford, Givenchy, Moschino and more. It is a definite must-see from the magazine, not to mention refreshing to see a cast of exclusively black models booked for something other than a tired safari or “tribal” spread.

Karen Elson Delivers Another Memorable Cover for Vogue Thailand (Forum Buzz)

Ever since its debut issue back in February 2013, Vogue Thailand has been on a mission to impress. Coco Rocha, Malgosia Bela and Naomi Campbell have previously showed face on the magazine’s cover and now, it’s Karen Elson‘s turn. Photographed for both the cover and an accompanying fashion story, the British redhead-turned-occasional songstress was captured by Marcin Tyszka for a series of timeless photos that serve up Karen’s beauty and allure perfectly for the April 2015 edition.

But has Vogue Thailand done enough to excite our forum members? “Giving me the Australian Vogue vibes. Pass,” MON discredited immediately after the cover broke earlier this week.

“Not the best quality, but wish there was less text & awkward mouth, always great to see her on Vogue though!” added Miss Dalloway.

The mood soon started to shape up as KateTheGreatest enthused, “She looks flawless, I don’t think I’ve ever liked a Vogue Thailand cover so much.”

Handbag Queen shared the same sentiments: “Karen is so beautiful and photogenic and always does the best covers!”

“Karen always looks like a goddess. Love the contrast in this shot!” admired Nepenthes.

Also taking a liking to Vogue Thailand’s efforts this month was GlamorousBoy: “I love the colors, so vibrant.”

American Eagle Outfitters and Aéropostale Get a Long Overdue Makeover

You’ll be seeing a lot fewer people walking around with eagles embroidered on their sweatshirts. Teen retailers American Eagle Outfitters and Aéropostale have been stuck in the shadows of fast fashion meccas like H&M , but both seem to have found the light.

Seeing the success of other stores churning out trendy items without all the ham-fisted branding has made American Eagle Outfitters and Aéropostale rethink plastering their clothes with logos, and instead focus on creating a product more in tune with the tastes of their demographic. The retailers are hoping their new approach to design will help lure back customers — and give them a leg up over Abercrombie & Fitch, which is going through its own struggles as it tries to revamp its image. 

American Eagle Outfitters has fortunately seen some growth in the past few months. Things haven’t fared so well yet for Aéropostale, but it is turning over inventory faster than Abercrombie, which has been slower to embrace change. It’s about time these companies realize that logos aren’t the look on the streets anymore.
