Men’s fashion magazines are often overlooked in our forums, even while delivering terrific covers and content. For September, the British version of GQ serves up Emily Ratajkowski on the front of its recently released issue. The title has previously featured women, like top models Miranda Kerr and Lara Stone in memorable shoots from Mario Testino. The Peruvian photographer shot Emily for this occasion, with Katie Grand on hand to style the Gone Girl actress for a series of sexy and sultry photos.
Our forum members weren’t impressed with the outcome, however. “Is Mario Testino the highlight of this issue??? Oh well, Katie and Mario, two names I hate. Next,” MON announced immediately.
“So… that was the huge anti-climax GQ had for us?” asked an underwhelmed Chanelcouture09.
Also unimpressed was KINGofVERSAILLES, ranting, “Wouldn’t the headline about her hitting and/or seducing Hollywood have been more appropriate last year? A quick look at her IMDb page shows she had a cameo in Entourage, which was a critical and commercial flop, she has a supporting role in a bad looking indie, and a supporting role in an upcoming cable mini-series. No other roles on the horizon. Hardly seducing Hollywood.” Ouch!
Forum member honeycombchild was quick to throw in, “Ergh, I bloody hate men’s magazines like GQ sometimes. It’s tragic that the only way they believe they can sell an issue is by having a scantily clad girl or a man in a dull suit on their cover. It irritates me that they pitch themselves above the usual men’s magazines too, it’s for ‘gentlemen’ don’t you know.”
“I was like ‘Oh not Kim [Kardashian] again,'” laughed GIVENCHYlover.
