Flashback: UK Vogue April 2005 with Gisele Bundchen by Patrick Demarchelier

"She is everywhere," commented GlamorousBoy in the latest Lui magazine thread featuring Gisele Bundchen on the cover of the June 2014 issue. He's right! The Brazilian model is everywhere at the present moment, so it's only fitting that we reflect back on one of Bundchen's previous covers for this week's flashback series.

I decided to dig the April 2005 issue of UK Vogue out of my stack today, trying hard to remember what the cover actually looked like. It's very pink, yet effortlessly beautiful. Gisele is photographed by Patrick Demarchelier wearing a silk dress from Ralph Lauren, which was styled by Katie Felstead.

After having a quick leaf through the magazine, I'm surprised Gisele doesn't have a set of pictures inside. However, Demarchelier does shoot a fashion story with models Valentina Zelyaeva, Mona Johansson and Lindsay Ellingson. The 12-page story consists of the three models wearing outfits with a mix of subtle influences, decorative accessories and a hint of animal print. You cannot beat a good Demarchelier studio shoot and this one oozes timeless elegance.

Inside the 336-page issue, we get editorials from Paolo Roversi with Lily Cole, Carter Smith shoots Erin Wasson, and Corrine Day photographs a radiant, energetic and youthful Natasha Poly.

Why don't you check out the issue's thread on our forums, here? You might just find a forgotten favorite.

18 Years Later, Christy Turlington is Back on the Cover of UK Vogue (Forum Buzz)

Christy Turlington returns to the cover of British Vogue, 18 years after her last appearance. The supermodel is photographed by Patrick Demarchelier against one of the photographer's classic grey backdrops, whilst wearing a white sweater from Acne, which was styled by Clare Richardson. Isn't all of this just very pretty? Although some of our forum members aren't convinced..

"She's beautiful and I'm incredibly happy they put her on the cover, but are you actually kidding me? It's June. The issue is July. Why the hell are you doing a cover that screams the depths of winter? Someone needs to give these magazines a slap. I feel like this year has been the worst for it!" wrote honeycombchild.

Nymphaea shared his sentiments: "It's so cold, it's giving me chills."

"I know everyone's up in arms about the sweater, but honestly, if they didn't have the grey background, it would be such a summery cover — after all, there's nothing more British than a sweater in summer – as I think the grey just makes it seem very wintery," agreed ohmycolin, who went on to say,  "Aside from that, Christy looks fantastic and it's such a beautiful shot. I really can't find a fault with it, and I can't wait to get my hands on this issue!"

A positive response started to flood in after yesitsdagny commented, "She's still the most beautiful woman on Earth. After all these years Christy's beauty never fades. Such a lovely cover."

"Lovely cover. Christy is truly shining; her beauty is out of this world!" shared Nepenthes.

We certainly have a mixed response from our forum members. What do you think? Share your opinion within the thread here.

Forbes Magazine Realeases 100 Most Powerful Women List, Confirms That Anna Wintour is the Most Powerful Woman in Fashion

Forbes magazine released its annual "100 Most Powerful Women" list today, and the fashion set, as usual, is well-represented this year, with about six (and a half!) women in the industry rounding out the 100. First is Anna Wintour, who jumped up two spots from last year, putting her at #39. Anna's had a big year, obviously, being promoted to artistic director of Condé Nast, where she's been flexing her muscles. She was also honored by the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute, which renamed its then-eponymous wing to the Anna Wintour Costume Center, a ceremony at which First Lady Michelle Obama, #8 on the Forbes list, cut the ribbon. We already knew she was the queen of fashion and now, it looks like Forbes got the message too.

Also on the list is Angela Ahrendts (#49, who we're counting as 1/2 a fashion person), former Burberry CEO and current SVP of retail and online stores for Apple. Designers Diane von Furstenberg (#68), Miuccia Prada (#75), and Tory Burch (#79) all made the cut once again, but while Diane slid up a few spots from her #74 ranking last year, Tory and Miuccia both moved down from #69 and #58 respectively. Supermodel Gisele Bundchen is also on the list at #89 and Sara Blakely, the creator of Spanx (who is worth about $1 billion), brings up the rear at #93.

If you've ever wondered why Kate Moss became such a thing — and those early Corinne Day photos weren't convincing enough for you — look no further. The supermodel returns as the face of David Yurman for the Fall 2014 campaign, photographed by Peter Lindberg. (Moss reportedly had a falling out with the company in 2011.) According to the famed jeweler, the campaign celebrates "the ten year partnership with the supermodel, the photographer and the brand."

“The fall campaign is about a return to the classics,” says David Yurman himself, the company's founder and CEO. “Our jewelry has evolved, but the style is always timeless. We chose Kate because she is iconic, sophisticated, and rock and roll all at the same time – a combination that is the very core of this brand.”

The ads are slated to appear in print and online in August.

Most of the covers are just like the American version (featuring KP in a sequined rainbow bodycon), but there are a few other versions with Katy clad in a slinky silver sequined gown and another with a look from Jeremy Scott's fast food-inspired collection from Moschino. And no surprises here, she looks great in each outfit.

Check out a few other versions of the cover here.
