Gigi Hadid Works the Lens of Steven Meisel for W’s September Cover (Forum Buzz)

In case you missed Taraji P. Henson‘s sexy cover from last month, we suggest you grab a copy quick now that W magazine is gearing up for the release of its September edition. The magazine unveiled the cover earlier today with a sultry Gigi Hadid showcased in a beautiful black and white portrait image with styling from Edward Enninful. Legendary photographer Steven Meisel stood behind the lens to capture the bombshell’s solo moment.

The cover became an instant hit with our forum members. “Gigi looks stunning in this shot. There’s something really late 80s Cindy Crawford about it,” Nepenthes admired as soon as the cover dropped.

“Now THAT is the sort of cover I’ve been waiting for. Gigi doing glamour is always welcome in my world,” raved tigerrouge soon after.

Avogadro was a fan also, writing, “The BEST I’ve seen from Gigi. Kudos to Meisel, he’s a master.”

Also showing the cover some enthusiasm was TeeVanity: “So gorgeous, love that she’s on the cover. She’s a star.”

“Great! Meisel is a genius because he gives us emotions. I feel something when I’m seeing one of his pictures. So joyful and optimistic even if it’s not groundbreaking. Gigi is a beautiful girl. She looks like a modern Michaela Bercu. That’s why I think so many people are obsessed with her. She is that kind of 80s beauty,” noted Lola701.

“Ah I love it! Gigi by Meisel! Wow. This is beautiful. She is beautiful,” shared an elated MON.

You’ll love Gigi’s accompanying cover story, which can of course be viewed via our thread here. Drop us a comment!

Watch: Karlie Kloss Goes 007 in DVF’s ‘Secret Agent’ Film to Debut New Handbag

DVF really knows how to get our attention. To launch her latest handbag for Fall 2015, Diane von Furstenberg turned to Peter Lindbergh to direct a short film for the campaign. And since the bag is named Secret Agent, the film stars Karlie Kloss as a seductive spy.

Styled by Edward Enninful, Kloss parades through the city dodging paparazzi in true fashion: wearing a DVF dress and carrying the new Secret Agent bag. According to the website, the DVF Secret Agent “is the ultimate day-to-night bag: a streamlined tote that conceals a detachable, zip off go-anywhere clutch. Lightweight and customizable, she is always ready at a moment’s notice, the ultimate accomplice in everything you do.” Yes, you read that right. The Secret Agent is essentially two bags in one—the larger tote for daytime, and the clutch for nighttime.

Kloss showcases how the bag transforms during her sultry James Bond-esque mission in the film. “The DVF Secret Agent bag and the character Karlie plays are really metaphors for the DVF woman,” von Furstenberg said. “She is a businesswoman, a mother, a lover, a friend. She is always on the go. Now we have created the ultimate accomplice for every facet of the life she lives fully.”  (more…)

Nicole Kidman Stars on an Earthy Vogue Australia Cover (Forum Buzz)

There’s often so much shade thrown at magazines these days, but it’s almost impossible not to congratulate Vogue Australia on its latest effort. As reported in our Cover Rumor Thread, Nicole Kidman participated in a shoot with Will Davidson and the incredible stylist that is Christine Centenera last month. The outcome of the shoot on location in the Australian outback ended up as Vogue‘s all-important September cover feature — and we’re sold. The Aussie actress appears stunning and natural like never before in front of Davidson’s lens wearing a beige suede jacket teamed with a plain white dress, proving less is always more.

Forum members couldn’t wait to express their delight. “BEYOND her U.S. cover! Beyond! This is how U.S. Vogue should’ve done it,” shouted MON.

Vogue U.S. should be so embarrassed! You can’t beat Will Davidson’s outdoor photography,” HeatherAnne agreed.

GreyVetiver was full of admiration, too, declaring, “Anna [Wintour] should be ashamed of her team.”

Also full of praise was GlamVal. “I love it.. Better than American Vogue,” he wrote with TaylorBinque adding, “A huge slap at Vogue U.S. I’m loving this.”

Benn98 quickly said, “Love this, Nicole’s first Vogue Australia cover in quite a few years, and it’s beautiful.”

“TONS better than her Vogue U.S. cover but I still really dislike her,” expressed KateTheGreatest as things started to go a little down under.

“Better than U.S. Vogue but the hair is dreadful,” noted ThatGuyPaul.

Emma Watson Lands Her Second UK Vogue Cover (Forum Buzz)

Waiting for the September issues to smash onto our local newsstands is like waiting for Christmas morning, but finally U.K. Vogue‘s edition has dropped for our entertainment and pleasure. As whispered about weeks ago, British actress Emma Watson takes the honor of gracing the title’s newly unveiled cover, wearing Stella McCartney and photographed by Josh Olins. Just like Emma’s December 2010 appearance, we thought Mario Testino would’ve shot the feature, so Olins is certainly a welcome choice.

Unfortunately, the cover fell short with our forum members. “This would be more fitting on the cover of a teen girl magazine,” Nomar suggested immediately. 

“Great to see them move away from head shots. This would’ve been a great Teen Vogue cover, but it’s nice to see Emma. I’m surprised they haven’t matured her a bit to appeal to their broad range of women,” wondered an underwhelmed Benn98.

“This should be better, it’s still good but it could be better. Something is off with her face, maybe they used too much Photoshop? I think she looks better than this cover lets on,” said KateTheGreatest.

Also not feeling the outcome was Kanna: “Emma looks tired. Adding some color on the lips would do good.”

GlamorousBoy was quick to complain, “Bad hair, bad expression, bad pose… I am very disappointed.”

“I adore Emma but sadly this isn’t the best cover she’s landed by any means. What a shame. The hair has just tipped too far into ‘through a hedge backwards’ for me. Daria [Werbowy] on Porter is artfully disheveled, this is just… scruffy,” said honeycombchild.
