Chrissy Teigen Is Photoshopped Into Oblivion on InStyle’s November Cover

Up until recently, our forums have been pretty supportive of Laura Brown’s tenure at InStyle. However, members have been calling out the blatant airbrushing on the past few covers. Selena Gomez didn’t exactly look like herself on September’s issue and you could barely tell Julianne Moore was the cover star last month. Now, you have to squint to see a hint of Chrissy Teigen on the publication’s November 2017 cover. Photographed by Carter Smith, Chrissy is all smiles in the bright, summery cover (FYI InStyle, it’s fall now) while leaving the majority of our forum members scratching their heads.

“OK, so… this is awkward. The amount of Photoshop in that cover is downright atrocious. They’ve airbrushed Chrissy’s face into oblivion, to the point where she is unrecognizable. Am I the only one who’s sat here shocked? Yikes!” voiced vogue28 the moment the cover dropped.

“Who is this woman?! She certainly doesn’t look like Chrissy! Talk about whitewashing,” accused kokobombon. (more…)

Where’s the Glamour on British Vogue’s November Cover Starring Claire Foy?

While we’re waiting in suspense for Edward Enninful‘s first issue of British Vogue to drop next month, the magazine continues to power through with the newly unveiled November 2017 cover featuring Claire Foy. Our forum members knew just what to expect from Claire’s debut Vogue appearance, having taken an exclusive first look at two prospective cover options back in August. The magazine ultimately went with the full-body shot of Claire, making a bold departure from its usual covers, with the star of The Crown wearing a blush pink Christian Siriano gown, shot by Craig McDean and styled by Kate Phelan.

The cover didn’t go down too well on our forums. “I like the cover and the color scheme and at least it’s notably glamorous. Something which Alexandra [Shulman] rarely bothered with. But they couldn’t get a shot where she’s making direct eye contact? Surely McDean must’ve had a variation of this shot,” quipped Benn98.

“That’s not glamour, that’s just two acres of fabric,” sniped tigerrouge. (more…)

Julia Roberts Is All Smiles on the November Covers of UK Harper’s Bazaar

You’ll often hear our forum members ranting about how repetitive UK Harper’s Bazaar can be, forever insisting on shooting cover stories in the English countryside. The magazine appears to have heard our cries with the unveiling of two November 2017 covers featuring a glowing Julia Roberts at the beach in Malibu, California. Photographed by Alexi Lubomirski, People‘s Most Beautiful Woman in the World looks effortless and at ease on the subscribers cover (below) and flashes her famous smile in a lush red Ralph & Russo gown on the newsstand cover (after the jump).

Members of our forums were quick to show the magazine some love this month. “Lovely! Her smile is priceless,” admired Nymphaea the moment the cover struck.

Apple expressed the same sentiments: “So lovely! That smile is worth a million!” (more…)

Lauren Hutton Is the Perfect Choice to Cover Vogue Italia’s October Issue Dedicated to Women Over 60

Vogue Italia’s new editor-in-chief Emanuele Farneti certainly isn’t shy about pushing boundaries and putting his stamp on the fashion glossy. He has already redesigned the entire magazine and put same-sex models kissing on the September cover and now, he dedicates the recently unveiled October issue to women over 60, featuring none other than Lauren Hutton on the cover. With a total of 40 Vogue cover appearances throughout her career, the 73-year-old all-American beauty was photographed by Italian Vogue regular Steven Klein, showing everyone else how it’s truly done on not one, but three tremendous covers for ‘The Timeless Issue.’

Jennifer Lawrence Channels Christian Dior’s Resort 2018 Aesthetic in New Campaign

Ever since she first became affiliated with the legendary French fashion house back in 2013, our forums have had a love/hate relationship with Jennifer Lawrence x Christian Dior. After countless advertising campaigns from handbags to lipstick, Jennifer has still yet to solidify herself as a Dior woman in our forum members’ eyes (no matter how many different Dior handbags she totes walking through the airport). The label continues to milk J.Law’s contract for all it’s worth, enlisting the actress to front the newly unveiled Resort 2018 campaign. Shot by Brigitte Lacombe (again), Jennifer echoes the aesthetic of Dior’s resort showcase, which was held at a large open space nature preserve in California, for the desert-inspired campaign.

The images were sure to generate buzz. “Oh I quite love this! I think it’s her best ad for the house. Mostly because it’s the one where she looks more at ease since it doesn’t have that forced ladylike image,” reasoned Marc10.

“This fits her personality/real-life style better, IMO. I find her more believable as a spokesperson now,” added kokobombon. (more…)

Bella Hadid Gives Good Face on Harper’s Bazaar Arabia’s October Cover

After Kim Kardashian fabulously channeled Cher on the September cover of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia last month, the magazine is suddenly on our radar — and even more so now with the unveiling of the October 2017 cover. Fresh from her recent stint on Vogue Arabia, Bella Hadid graces Arabian Bazaar‘s latest and serves good face (per usual) in the magazine’s captivating and enchanting new cover image. Photographed by Victor Demarchelier, Bella ventures to Venice for the shoot and cements her affiliation with upscale Italian label Bulgari by wearing a whole host of jewelry and accessories throughout the cover story.

The majority of our forum members were pleasantly surprised with the outcome. “I don’t know about the necklace-on-the-head thing, but holy crap that’s a gorgeous picture of Bella. That FACE is just stunning,” confessed happycanadian upon checking out the cover.

“The cover is looking good! Far better than her Vogue Arabia cover,” added badgalcrush. (more…)
