Suvi Koponen Wears Prada on the Cover Of Vogue Korea’s April Issue (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Korea's April 2014 issue has Suvi Koponen on the cover, wearing Prada which was styled by Ye Young Kim. The Finnish model was photographed by Benny Horne. Korean Vogue is one of those editions which is underrated at times but they often produce some terrific covers, as seen here.

"That styling really works on Suvi..cool cover," wrote justaguy.

Anlabe32 also shared the same positive sentiments: "That's definitely a good cover! Suvi and the Prada look great. Refreshing after Vogue Korea's dark and depressing backgrounds."

"Beautiful cover," added fiqary.

As always, the wit from theFashionSpot members is always evident, with GIVENCHYlover writing, "Reminds me of Mario (the game)."

"I really don't like this sporty-a lot of layers-colorblocking styling… I just don't," exclaims GlamourousBoy.

Bertrando3 also wasn't fond: "Gosh, it's not pretty, I don't get it."

"Fun cover, with a good model who pulled off the styling," wrote Miss Dalloway

Justaguy was also very fond of the cover and commented, "Karolina is bringing it! She looks so great here."

"LOVE. IT. The styling is hilariously over-the-top and KK (with some help from the poofy hair) is pulling it off with aplomb. Love the one hand on hip and the other playing with the necklace. Her expression is playful, too. It's just very well done on all fronts. She looks gorgeous, obviously," exclaimed a very enthusiastic happycanadian.

UrbanStylin kicked off the 90s reference the cover oozes: "Looove it! reminds me of the 90s which she does pretty well since she does have that supermodel quality."

His opinion was then echoed by jexxica: "Very beautiful cover, love the style and colors. Kind of 90s."

Although Bertrando3 wasn't impressed and said, "Gosh I hate it, she looks fake and it's way too over the top. Her Vogue covers have always been like that: hit or miss and THIS is a big miss."

Here’s What People Really Think About the Kim/Kanye Vogue Cover (Forum Buzz)

If you haven't already seen US Vogue's April 2014 cover with the "#worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple" Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, I don't know where you've been for the past few days. Vogue released the cover Friday which was photographed by Annie Leibovitz.

Anna Wintour's decision to put Kimye on the cover of American Vogue has sparked major discussion within theFashionSpot forums. The very first comment by t-rex read, "Get out. This thread will be a great one and remembered for a long time." Our members do not disappoint and have made for some excellent reading.

As you would expect, the cover didn't go down well and within the first few minutes fee de foret wrote, "This is why after 5 years I've let my Vogue subscription run out. [Irrelevant] cover stars, stale editorials and worst of all, unimaginative fashion! It's become a pitiful, desperate edition."

Honeycombchild was not happy with Wintour's decision either: "I'm really disappointed with the decision to make this cover. I think this is the first issue of US Vogue that I won't be buying in about ten years. I find that sad and mostly I'm just confused that Vogue thinks she and Kanye are what their audience wants to read about."

Magdalena00 simply wrote, "RIP Vogue Magazine."

Amongst all the negativity came this comment from Bobby153: "I was actually really looking forward to a Kim K cover, I thought there was a lot of potential to do something very interesting with her. Vogue can take ‘un-Vogue’ like subjects and make them look beautiful, there was a lot of hoopla around the Kate Upton cover but I thought it was very striking and one of my favourite covers of recent times."

A fragment of Cottonmouth13's comment was also positive: "I honestly think the cover somehow looks great. It's poetic, romantic and a little nice too."

I'm almost certain this issue will fly off the shelves, considering the mass of attention this issue is getting right now. People are always willing to own a bit of history too — and this is it. "All publicity is good publicity," as Kite stated.

Discussion progressed between members with over 342 replies to the thread and almost 46,562 views, thus far.

Vanessa Axente Scores Second Vogue Japan Cover (Forum Buzz)

"A little bit of an eyesore but happy for Vanessa," wrote Creative

Psylocke also agreed, "Yeah, not her fault, obviously. But this is awful. That hair and that lipstick. Not to mention the ever so terrible layout. The pose is nice and very elegant, but seems weird in combination with that styling. I hope she has an editorial by Vanderperre inside that is much better than the cover shot."

As did anlabe32 who wrote, "Horrible! It's not her fault though… the text overload, the fact that the left side of the cover is a lot brighter than the right side and not to speak about those blue underlined headlines…Looks like a 1999's homepage of a website. I almost clicked on it."

So, the cover isn't off to a very good start with forum members, but I don't mind it. I admire the composition and how Vanessa's head sits nicely in the middle of the Vogue masthead. I also love the fact this particular piece from Céline's Spring 2014 collection actually looks wearable.

It's pretty safe to say the release of this cover won't outshine Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's American Vogue cover.

Do You Buy a Magazine Based on How Thick It Is?

Today I found myself overhearing a conversation at the newsstand where a group was discussing whether or not to each purchase the March 2014 issue of Vogue Italia. A girl told her companion she was buying the £9.00 magazine because she was almost certain there would be something inside she liked, due to the fact that the magazine was so heavy (the issue and its two supplements weigh in at 2 kg).

I walked out with my own copy, plastic carrier bag almost snapping with the pressure of such a heavy item. A few hours later I realized that I hadn't even opened the magazine from its shrink wrap, and wondered if I was so compelled to make the purchase myself because it was heavy, thick and seemed to show promise from the unusual cover shot.

As it turns out, the thickness of Vogue Italia March 2014 does not guarantee the issue will be a substantial read. In fact, Steven Meisel's story is the only good element, the rest of the issue fades into the background. As for the two supplements which are included (Vogue Accessory and the couture supplement), they don't hold much promise either. Both supplements are included as free gifts (albeit a free gift I have to pay extra for, due to the added weight and the import charges).

As a magazine collector, I couldn't care less about the thickness of a magazine. I would much rather have one fantastic fashion shoot, than four or five mediocre stories which would result in a higher page number towards the end of the issue. Magazines should be more about quality than quantity.
