Check Out Dakota Johnson on Vogue’s February Cover (Forum Buzz)

We’ve been speculating for months inside the Cover Rumor Thread that Dakota Johnson could possibly front an issue of Vogue with the release of Fifty Shades of Grey, due out on Valentine’s Day. Confirming our suspicions, the cover leaked early on our forums and now Vogue has officially released the February 2015 cover alongside Dakota’s feature earlier today. Captured by Mario Testino, the 25-year-old actress wears a black jumpsuit from Balenciaga, selected by Tonne Goodman.

What do our forum members think of Dakota’s first Vogue cover? “Boring, this cover is more appropriate of Teen Vogue or Seventeen,” said burbuja8910 within moments of the thread being active.

“Dull brown cover. And I want to see more of the clothes. You could almost use this as a passport photo,” added Nymphaea.

HeatherAnne was far from impressed: “It seems like they were going for a Jessica Miller type vibe with her, but it falls flat. I know we all say this every month, but seriously a million other more deserving women than Johnson… but Wintour loves the rich white girls from prominent families, so I’m not shocked.”

Is the cover shot too boring? Forum member t-rex suggested something to liven up the shot: “The straight hair is bad – looks like extensions. I wish Dakota was smiling, she has a really warm, glowing smile.”

“Oh, no.. It’s the worst cover [of] US Vogue I have ever seen,” declared narcyza.

“I don’t even have an opinion on this… It’s as bland as it gets. This magazine has been dead for years,” Creative responded.

Could this be the most boring and generic cover of Vogue yet? Check out Dakota’s cover story alongside the content of the issue inside the thread here.

Alessandro Michele Will Most Likely Be Gucci’s Next Creative Director

In a move that should surprise absolutely no one, WWD reports that Gucci will be making the announcement that Alessandro Michele, its head accessories designer, will be named the new creative director at the label. Michele has been noted as one of Frida Giannini’s likely successors, seeming more likely than other names like Tom Ford, who was briefly rumored to possibly be returning to the Italian fashion house (a rep for Ford denied the claims). Yesterday, it was reported that the Gucci team was making last-minute changes to Giannini’s work for the label’s fall menswear offering and that Michele took the lead on the redesign.

Gucci still has to make an official announcement, but things are looking really good for Michele right about now.

Latin singer Thalía Sodi is jumping back into the fashion biz, teaming with Macy’s for a branded collection. Back in 2003, the Mexican singer launched a clothing and homewares line with Kmart, but this time around, she and Macy’s will be collaborating over the course of several years. Macy’s says this is the largest private brand it has ever put forth.

The offering is as lively as the woman who fronts it. Be prepared for a ton of animal print, lots of gold trim, jewelry that doesn’t skimp on the bling, curve-hugging pieces in stretchy fabrics and ruching galore. Prices are pretty affordable for apparel, starting at $49.50 for a top or bottom and peaking at $99.50 for a dress. Macy’s is targeting areas with large Latin populations like New York City, Miami and Los Angeles. 

The collection is due to hit shelves at the start of February.
