Vogue Italia’s E-Commerce Themed Cover Makes Giorgio Armani Look Like ASOS

Due to the tragic passing of Franca Sozzani back in December, Emanuele Farneti makes his debut as editor-in-chief ofVogue Italia this month. Sticking with tradition, Steven Meisel was Farneti’s photographer of choice to capture the anything-but-traditional cover story. Meisel (a forum favorite) cast model Lulu for an online shopping-inspired shoot, which somehow manages to make Giorgio Armani look more like ASOS on the disappointing March 2017 cover.

Most of our forum members despised the cover concept. “How ridiculous!! I have zero interest in this concept, and this is such an unappealing cover!” screamed Miss Dalloway.

“What a letdown! Pushing an ‘online shopping’ themed cover in 2017? And I know the images are supposed to mimic those lifeless ASOS lookbooks, but it simply doesn’t work for a cover,” chimed in a less than impressed Benn98. (more…)

Marie Claire’s Priyanka Chopra Cover for April Falls Flat

What’s happening over at Marie Claire? The magazine has let standards slip lately, churning out a series of underwhelming covers with some questionable styling choices. Scarlett Johansson managed to make the magazine’s March cover work by striking a powerful pose but Priyanka Chopra’s cover shoot for April 2017 falls flat. Photographed by Tesh, the Quantico actress (who usually photographs beautifully) looks a little lost and uneasy in the cover photo wearing an unattractive Gucci number selected by Alison Edmond.

Our forum members weren’t afraid to call out the American title. “There’s too much going on here — the ‘fierce’ face, hand pose, weird S&M studded leather shrug, and the fact that they’ve stripped her boobs away,” pointed out Benn98 the moment the cover struck.

“I usually always like Priyanka in print but here the result is TERRIBLE. The fierce over the top and crazy pose, the AWFUL styling, those leather things on her shoulders, the bad layout of the coverlines and the hair is baaaad (the person who did this should be fired ASAP!). This is not a good cover. OMG!” ranted a horrified Bertrando3. (more…)

Christy Turlington Is Captivating in a Reprinted Cover Shoot for Harper’s Bazaar Australia

Harper’s Bazaar Australia has a tendency to successfully use reprinted images and make them their own. The magazine brings its A game once again for April 2017, opting to use Spanish Bazaar‘s cover shoot with Christy Turlington. Selecting a totally different (and much better) shot than its counterpart, the 90s supermodel captivates in a printed Prada outfit.

However, Bazaar Australia’s latest choice of reprint has our forums divided. “This cover is wonderful! Such a fantastic, realistic and clean shot of Christy which I cannot help but to love. I love what they’ve done in terms of selecting the image, the composition, the colours, the fonts, etc. Brilliant!” rejoiced vogue28.

“Absolutely agree, I LOOOOOOVE this cover,” approved Bertrando3. (more…)

Pharrell Williams Models Chanel’s New Gabrielle Handbag in Spring Ad Campaign

We have been waiting for what feels like an eternity for Chanel’s latest campaign to drop and the wait is finally over. After Chanel’s overdone and somewhat peculiar Spring 2017 campaign with Arizona Muse, the iconic French fashion house is getting us excited for the new Karl Lagerfeld-designed Gabrielle handbag. To coincide with the release of the new It bag, Lagerfeld shot a handful of his muses wearing different variations of the bag, including Kristen Stewart, Cara Delevingne, Caroline de Maigret and, of course, Pharrell Williams. The first man to appear in a handbag campaign for Chanel (but not his first appearance as a Chanel ambassador), Pharrell comfortably models the black crocodile version of the bag, while also posing for one of Lagerfeld’s classic studio images (after the jump).

Unfortunately, our forum members weren’t feeling it. “I’m indifferent aboutPharrell’s shot. His desperation with being tied to anything Chanel related has reached epic proportions. It’s actually quite embarrassing. I’ve never seen someone so hungry for fashion acclaim. He’s now like a modern day Becky Sharp!” stated Benn98.

“I love how senile Karl is that in his world Pharrell is still a big deal. Remember his Vive La Fete days? Yeah…” MulletProof chimed in. (more…)

Lily Aldridge Has Never Looked Better Than on Vogue Thailand’s Glamorous March Cover

Our forum members loved the envelope-pushing image. “Finally an exciting and iconic cover! After all the Bella/Gigi blips everywhere that has been thrown at us,” welcomed Riseup.

“I think it will even look better in real life. I like it. Two great models,” applauded Nymphaea. (more…)
