W Magazine Selects Some of Hollywood’s Finest for Its Bland Annual Movie Issue (Forum Buzz)

It’s that time of year again when W magazine unveils its annual movie issue, serving up a handful of covers featuring some of Hollywood’s finest talent. For 2016, W has endorsed covers with Eddie Redmayne, Brie Larson, Rooney Mara, Carey Mulligan, Saoirse Ronan and Alicia Vikander. The stars were each photographed by Peter Lindbergh and our forum members are far from giving W a standing ovation.

Jennifer Lopez Fails to Impress on InStyle’s ‘Dark and Moody’ February Cover (Forum Buzz)

It’s official: InStyle‘s redesign is here to stay as the magazine releases yet another cover featuring its revamped masthead. Jennifer Lopez is unveiled as InStyle‘s February 2016 cover star, replacing Viola Davis‘ joyful cover at the newsstand this month. In total contrast, Jennifer goes for a more somber and sultry mood as she gazes down the lens of photographer Greg Kadel. The singer-slash-actress wears an Acne Studios sweater teamed with a Calvin Klein skirt on the cover, styled by Melissa Rubini.

The cover, however, raised a lot of questions with our forum members. “I think Jennifer is truly beautiful but that image doesn’t do much for me at all. It also does look very Glamour!” criticized honeycombchild straight away.

“Wow, what a Glamour cover!” agreed MON. (more…)

Even Naomi Campbell Can’t Pull Off The Pink Wig and Garish Makeup on Vogue Portugal’s February Cover (Forum Buzz)

An original cover story marks a change for the Portuguese edition of Vogue since it regularly delivers reprints (even though the mag often still nails it). Going all out and tapping photographer An Le, the Brit beauty looks fierce in dramatic makeup, complemented by a hot pink wig for the eye-catching shot.

Was the cover enough to impress our feisty forum members, though? “I get that Naomi’s face is mangled now and not that easy to shoot. But my god, this woman defined an industry so please please please Fabien [Baron] and his team work with her — and not these lesser knowns that turn her into some wax figure,” slammed Phuel.

“This would have been a great Interview Germany cover! But for Vogue, the hair is just ridiculous,” justaguy mocked. (more…)
