Hello, Gorgeous! 74-Year-Old Barbra Streisand Shows Some Serious Leg on W’s December Cover

Leave it to W Magazine to give us a cover subject that most other fashion titles wouldn’t dare to use. Not only does the magazine champion diversity, W isn’t afraid to use subjects of a certain age. Closing out 2016 in true celebratory fashion is the legendary Barbra Streisand who graces the magazine for December. Steven Meisel was W‘s lensman of choice and with Edward Enninful on styling duties, the outcome is everything our forum members didn’t know they wanted for the holidays.

“I never knew I needed this until now,” screamed an elated jnobis the moment the cover struck our forums.

“Fantastic cover, I love everything about this!” added sixtdaily. (more…)

Anja Rubik Works a Tuxedo Jacket (and Little Else) on Harper’s Bazaar Germany’s Holiday Cover (Forum Buzz)

The German edition of Harper’s Bazaar has been killing it lately. The title received a round of applause in our forums last month with a striking Joan Smalls cover and the success continues with the December/January offering featuring Polish beauty Anja Rubik. Our forums sure do love a good model cover and German Bazaar delivers just that for its double holiday edition. Captured by Terry Tsiolis, the Saint Laurent favorite works a black velvet Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo jacket (and very little else) in the effortless cover image.

Members of our forums immediately liked what they saw. “First Joan and now Anja, Harper’s Bazaar Germany’s on a total roll and I’m loving this. I’ve seen a few people’s Instagram posts earlier today and thought the cover looked terrific and immediately had me excited to see more. Anja looks fantastic as per usual and I love how simple, direct and clean the cover is,” vogue28 stated.

“Great cover, nice styling: clean and to the point,” Nymphaea described. (more…)

Did Bette Franke and Her Adorable Son Really Need That Much Photoshop on Vogue Netherlands’ December Cover? (Forum Buzz)

By now, the majority of the December covers have been revealed and one of the latest to catch our attention is Vogue Netherlands — but for all the wrong reasons. Bette Franke makes a return appearance on her native Vogue for the holiday season, posing for the final issue of 2016 alongside her adorable son, Boris. Shot by Dutch Vogue regular Marc de Groot, the mother and son duo look like they’re having an absolute ball on set, with Bette wearing a fun, bright and ruffled Viktor & Rolf dress as she holds her son — no doubt a very proud moment for the model.

But for our forum members, the cover failed to make an impression and left us far from wanting to join the festivities. “Kids on a cover almost never works, this one is no exception. And the dress is eating Bette alive,” Nymphaea complained at once.

“Mess. The Photoshop makes it so creepy,” said Scotty in utter horror. (more…)

Gigi Hadid Is Giving Us Gisele Bündchen Vibes on W Korea’s Vibrant December Covers (Forum Buzz)

She’s certainly had a terrific 2016, scoring multiple magazines covers and high-fashion advertising campaigns, not to mention a high-profile collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger. So it should come as no surprise to see Gigi Hadid turn up on the cover of W Korea. The Korean title certainly knows who to grab, having already churned out covers with girls-of-the-moment Kendall Jenner, Karlie Kloss and Gigi’s sister Bella Hadid this year. Photographic duo Luigi & Iango captured Gigi for W‘s December offering, resulting in two vibrant covers for our forums to deliberate over.

Members of our forums couldn’t help but feel a little nostalgic while looking at Gigi’s latest. “The overall feel of both images reminded me of when Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott used to shoot the Louis Vuitton advertising campaigns,” pointed out vogue28.

“I echo your sentiments! There is either something wrong with me or Gigi is turning into a rather good model seeing that I’ve liked most of her work lately,” dodencebt added. (more…)

Lady Gaga Does Ladylike Glamour on the Cover of Harper’s Bazaar’s 150th Anniversary Issue (Forum Buzz)

Lady Gaga had almost done a disappearing act on the newsstand this year, only starring on the cover of V Magazine with then-boyfriend Taylor Kinney back in January and more recently fronting T Magazine to promote her new album, Joanne. She now makes an appearance on Harper’s Bazaar for its double holiday issue, which celebrates a landmark of 150 years in publication. Photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Gaga does ladylike glamour as she conceals part of her face with her now-signature baby pink cowboy hat from Lack of Color on the newsstand cover (below).

But for Bazaar‘s momentous 150th anniversary edition, a few of our forum members couldn’t help but feel underwhelmed. “I wish they had done something different considering it’s an anniversary cover,” sighed liberty33r1b.

“It’s too much text on the cover. Without it, it would’ve been really nice,” narcyza added. (more…)

Gigi Hadid Bares All for Allure’s December Issue (Forum Buzz)

Allure‘s new Editor-in-Chief Michelle Lee churned out some pretty fantastic covers this year. Amanda Seyfried delighted on last month’s cover and now girl-of-the-moment Gigi Hadid closes out the year for December. Following in the footsteps of sister Bella who covered the March issue, Gigi was captured by master photographer Patrick Demarchelier for the occasion. Giving us major hair envy in the soft and dreamy image, Gigi tosses her curls over her shoulder while wearing a pink lace Gucci dress and going sans clothes inside the magazine’s upcoming edition.

Yet Allure‘s latest wasn’t enough to impress the majority of our forum members. “Oh for crying out loud, she is now beyond overused! She doesn’t look bad but I don’t like anything about this! The fake baby doll hair, underwear showing or her makeup!” exclaimed a far from impressed Miss Dalloway.

“Yes, however passable it may look, I’m positively fed-up seeing her on every cover. Also, ‘Gigi bares all’? Saw it all on Vogue Paris earlier this year. I applaud Allure for using more models, but can we use someone other than Kendall, Gigi and Bella?” asked Benn98. (more…)
