Charlize Theron Can Photograph ‘So Much Better’ for Vogue’s June Cover (Forum Buzz)

Summer is just around the corner (or already here for most of you), and Vogue's showing us how to spend our summery days with its June cover. Charlize Theron is photographed by Mario Testino on location in Islamorada, Florida for a range of photos to ensure readers dream of their summer vacation. For the cover shot, the actress is seen posing under the shade of a tree wearing a navy blue Christian Dior dress.

Although as satisfied as I am to see Theron score another cover of Vogue, members of theFashionSpot are disappointed with Miss Dalloway writing, "LOVE her, but this is such a snooze fest, my god! She can photograph so much better! At least the text layout is well placed & 'minimal.'"

"Charlize is so amazingly beautiful and this does not show it …how is that possible though?" asked visualoptimism.

[Piece Of Me] shared the same sentiments: "Very boring indeed. Frustrating because Charlize can photograph so much better."

Cosmic Voices questioned the choice of dress and wrote, "The dress just doesn't correlate with the location. I love Charlize but she has had MUCH better Vogue covers imo."

One positive outcome of the issue seems to be a picture by Steven Meisel featuring Raquel Zimmermann, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio and Isabeli Fontana for a story entitled 'Team Brazil.' You check out the image and the rest of the contents within the thread here.

Grace Coddington’s First Instagram is a Topless Self Portrait

Grace Coddington is on Instagram, ya'll! The Vogue creative director quietly set up an account yesterday, @therealgracecoddington, and so far has about 2,222 followers. We're guessing those numbers are about to go up significantly, now that she's got industry buds like Edward Enninful shouting her out on the social media outlet.

Her first 'gram could have been a selfie–apropos since everyone at Vogue seems so obsessed with selfie culture–but it's not. Coddington instead posted a self-portrait of her doing a little topless sunbathing, wearing nary but a pair of sunglasses and high heels. The image is part of an auction for Paddle 8 called "No Clothes," a collection of nudes curated by Coddington. Bidding for the pieces, which includes works by Mario Testino, Steven Meisel and Peter Lindbergh, is currently closed, but they're still pretty to look at.

At any rate, we're geeked to know that Coddington's snaps will be popping up in our Insta-timelines from now on.

Want to See Charlize Theron’s Leaked Vogue Cover?

A snapshot of Charlize Theron's sixth cover for US Vogue has just been leaked on the forums. The actress wears a navy dress one tFSer attributes to Dior ; she poses demurely, with her hands behind her back. 

Theron first appeared on the cover of Vogue in 2000, wearing a slinky sheer Giorgio Armani dress and photographed by Herb Ritts. (We profiled the issue last week.) She also appeared on the front of the publication in 2004 (wearing Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche), 2007 (wearing Carolina Herrera and photographed by Mario Testino) and 2009 (wearing Dior). She then graced the 2011 December Issue, photographed by Annie Leibovitz and styled in Calvin Klein Collection.

First Look: Poppy Delevingne Decked Out in Custom Chanel for Her Wedding

Poppy Delevingne's wedding guests might be banned from documenting her nuptials on Instagram, but thanks to the ever-ready lenses of the paparazzi, those of us not on the guest list can still have a peek at the festivities. Photos of the wedding party outside and leaving for St. Paul's Church in Knigtsbridge have surfaced, and we have a full view of Poppy's gown, a floral and bead-festooned Chanel number, which Grazia says was custom made by Karl Lagerfeld himself.

It looks like Poppy chose to buck tradition for her big day, as she wasn't the only gorgeous gal in white. Also sporting the optic hue was her sister–and one of 17 bridesmaids–Cara Delevingne, whose fluttery dress is also a Chanel creation. Guess Poppy took cues from another noted British wedding party.

There will be a lot more to see of the Delevingne-Cook wedding, even if it won't be on Instagram. The couple is reportedly having another black-tie ceremony in Marrakech later this year. We wonder what Poppy and Cara will be wearing to that affair…
