Multi-girl covers are all the rage this season with a number of editions of Vogue producing covers with a handful of models. This time around, Vogue Russia adopted the setup by tapping some fresh faces for its November cover. Kate Grigorieva, Dasha Gold and Anya Lyagoshina wear coats by Gucci as they pose for Patrick Demarchelier. The cover marks a first for each of the three models and is sure to project them further in the modeling industry.

Yet the cover failed to impress most of our forum members. “It does look really cheap…” wrote Oxymore, not kicking off the thread to a very good start.
“Vogue Netherlands? Russian Vogue lost their direction this month. This looks cheap! The image quality is so bad. It looks like a cheap ad for low-budget salons. They look so washed out that the blush looks annoying. The coats are tragic as well, it seems like they’re wigs combined with rugs. Disaster! The hair is bad also, that hairline, is that an airport runway?” disapproved MON, clearly not a fan of the cover.
Benn98 shared his doubts and posted, “What’s up with Vogue Russia this month? Kudos for shooting new girls, but they look so random. Those coats are awful. And I’m not sure whether black was the right color for the fonts.”
Also not an admirer was Moofins: “This isn’t working for me. The styling is a mess (they look like they’re selling bathroom rugs) and their faces look plastic.”
“This looks awful, there is not one thing about it that I like,” posted a very unsatisfied KateTheGreatest.
“You have three gorgeous faces such as these and yet that’s all they came up with?” questioned an underwhelmed StoneSkipper.
So, we have some pretty negative reviews for Vogue Russia’s latest installment. Are you impressed? Share your opinion here.
ELLE France continues to amaze members of our forums. The French edition publishes weekly and still manages to deliver excellent consecutive issues, tapping some of fashion’s finest models for its covers. The current issue, dated October 10, 2014, features Georgia May Jagger, photographed by Marcin Tyszka. The British model dons a rather large white hat from Vivienne Westwood teamed with a simple white tee from DSquared2.

Georgia can also be found inside the issue for a studio shoot where we see her sport a variety of makeup looks and hairstyles. She also wears some desirable pieces by Gucci, Victoria Beckham and Thierry Mugler.
“I just love the direction of ELLE France. Everything feels so fresh. They’re far ahead of Vogue in terms of creativity and even when they also tend to go retro, it feels cool and chic. Maybe it’s the variety of photographers they appoint… very bold,” posted Royal-Galliano, showcasing a positive attitude toward the magazine.
“Wow, I love it! ELLE France really has some amazing covers from time to time — especially considering how often it’s published,” complimented frk-frost.
The previous cover of ELLE featured Suzanne Diaz by Laura Sciacovelli, plus Myf Shepherd and Kate Wagoner also posed for the cover story, which was inspired by the 70s and led to great results. You can check out all past issues of French ELLE inside the thread and don’t forget to post your own opinion here.
First a collaboration with M.A.C and now this. The Simpsons is linking with Forever 21 to shill a capsule collection steeped in 90s codes. Of course, the label would look to the decade for inspiration, considering The Simpsons came of age (so to speak) in the 90s. On tap are T-shirts, sweatshirts, crop tops and more, printed with the likenesses of Homer, Marge and the gang.
The Simpsons has been airing for 25 years and, according to WWD, Fox is celebrating the series’ quarter-century run with a series of collaborations with M.A.C, Zara, Uniqlo and others. Of course, prices for the Forever 21 range are decidedly affordable. You can purchase pieces from the line for as little as $14.90 or as much as $22.90. Not bad on the ol’ wallet at all!
The collaboration is expected to hit shelves this Thursday, so Simpsons fans (or folks with an itch for some serious 90s nostalgia) this is your time to shine.
Everybody knows at least one person who can seem to do no wrong, with each success leading to another. Caprice can definitely be considered one of those people. Boasting a host of achievements, the once most-photographed-woman-in-the-world seemed to effortlessly transition into an equally successful businesswoman, thanks to her leading lingerie company By Caprice.
Founded in 2006, By Caprice Lingerie aims to create lingerie that is utterly desirable with the added bonus of being completely affordable. Perhaps that’s the reason why it’s been such a hit.

Her Fall 2014 collection just dropped at selected retailers, such as Very, Littlewoods and ASOS, and if you’re in need of spicing up your underwear collection, then it’s most definitely worth a peek. Covering a palette of blue, pink, red or alternatively timeless black that make for a sumptuous feel, the styles are also cleverly designed to flatter a multitude of different body shapes. Standout pieces include the texture contrast Savanna bra along with the matching briefs in vivid purple and elegant black, which would make great Christmas treats. (more…)

You would think that Chanel would have quite an active Instagram account considering its creative director Karl Lagerfeld is a champion of everything tech, new and now. Nope — the label has been late to the Instagram party, but it’s all good because it’s finally arrived. Chanel activated an Instagram account, filling it with photos of last night’s fete for the brand’s Chanel No. 5 campaign, directed by Baz Luhrmann and starring Gisele Bündchen.

Like most parties you weren’t invited to, the affair looked pretty fabulous. The ultra-fancy crowd included Gisele, Karlie Kloss, Binx Walton, Soo Joo Park, Leigh Lezark, Harley Viera-Newton, Derek Blasberg and several others. Of course, Karl and Anna Wintour had to stop and pose with the man of the night, Baz, who was serving some serious face as he posed with two of the industry’s power players.
