Bella Hadid Stars in Giuseppe Zanotti’s ‘Trashy’ Spring Campaign

After a remarkable 2017, it’s clear Bella Hadid isn’t going anywhere. A mere five days into 2018 and she’s already scored the cover of Vogue Korea, returned to star in the new Max Mara campaign and now reprises her gig as the face (and legs) of Giuseppe Zanotti. Zanotti commissioned photographic duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott to replace Mario Sorrenti, along with fashion icon Carine Roitfeld back on styling duties.

According to our forum members, the team has let standards slip for Spring 2018. “Sorrenti did it better, and I prefer the last season’s campaign,” commented badgalcrush the second the campaign dropped.

“Her body is banging! I’d take this any day over Stuart Weitzman. Although I’m not sure who would buy the shoes in the first image. Looks very dated,” noted Benn98. (more…)

Hailee Steinfeld Channels Brooke Shields on Marie Claire’s Gorgeous February Cover

We gave Marie Claire a hard time in 2017 for delivering awkward covers that were often over-styled or reeked of Photoshop. The new year is here and after a questionable Holiday 2017 cover featuring Gwen Stefani, the magazine does us proud for February 2018 with a gorgeous and glamorous cover featuring Hailee Steinfeld. Photographed by Kai Z Feng, the singer and actress serves major Brooke Shields realness, sporting bombshell hair and a smoldering makeup look while working a glitzy Saint Laurent number.

Overall, our forum members gave their seal of approval. “She’s a gorgeous girl, got a tiny bit of that Brooke Shields jailbait innocence about her in this shot,” pointed out tigerrouge.

“That’s a beautiful portrait,” added dfl-001. (more…)

Edward Enninful Disappoints With Margot Robbie and Nicole Kidman’s February Cover of UK Vogue

Is Edward Enninful on his way to becoming a one-hit wonder as editor-in-chief of British Vogue? We’re slowly starting to feel that way after his Taylor Swift cover disappointed our forum members and now, the February 2018 cover fails to excite. A stark contrast from last year’s February cover, Enninful gives us two Hollywood actresses: Aussie duo Margot Robbie and Nicole Kidman. Photographed by Juergen Teller and styled by Enninful himself, Margot wears Louis Vuitton while Nicole poses in Christian Dior, each wearing a pair of LaCrasia gloves.

It’s safe to say our forum members aren’t buying it. “I don’t like it that much… I don’t like Teller for covers, as his photography is too pedestrian IMO,” said kokobombon straight away.

“Awful. Based on this, Juergen Teller should be shooting mugshots and not Vogue covers,” mocked 333101. (more…)

Sasha Pivovarova Shows Off Her Artistic Talents in Christian Dior’s Spring 2018 Campaign

Maria Grazia Chiuri hasn’t been able to catch a break when it comes to Christian Dior’s ad campaigns. Her debut Spring 2017 campaign looked more suited to the high street and the Fall 2017 images that followed failed to excite (even the Jennifer Lawrence ads were off the mark). Yet change seems to be in the air as Dior unveils its campaign for Spring 2018, ditching the multi-girl casting and allowing veteran model Sasha Pivovarova to steal the show. Also out is photographer Brigitte Lacombe in favor of Patrick Demarchelier who captures Sasha on the studio floor, showcasing her various works of art and proving less is always more.

But is it? The campaign left our forum members divided. “Sasha! What a treat. The shot is OK but I’m so excited to see her and I love that they included her painting, she’s very talented,” posted forum member LastNight upon checking out the campaign.

“I will always be happy to see the wonderful Sasha, a true star who can even make these clothes look decent,” added [Piece Of Me]. (more…)

Tracee Ellis Ross Is All Smiles on Glamour’s February Cover

Tracee Ellis Ross gave us life on the October 2017 cover of W Magazine, outshining a host of other “new royals.” Now, the actress is a much-welcomed sight on the front of Glamour‘s February 2018 issue. Photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, Tracee is all smiles in the joyful cover image (below) in a colorful Jil Sander knit teamed with a pair of Louis Vuitton sneakers.

Members of our forums were thrilled for Tracee but thought Glamour‘s art direction ruined (once again) an otherwise dynamic image. “I like her. Happy that she’s on the cover but that font has to go, and the styling. Goodness!” commented MON the moment the cover struck.

“I like the energy, perfect for Tracee but that font!” echoed dfl-001. (more…)

Bella Hadid Returns to Max Mara for the New Spring 2018 Accessories Campaign

Bella Hadid must be shifting a whole lot of product for Max Mara since the brand has invited her back to front the latest accessories campaign. Bella had a remarkable 2017, with more magazine covers than any other model (or actress) and multiple ad campaigns for major fashion brands — and it seems 2018 is looking just as bright. Bella proves every inch her worth in the new Max Mara images, shot in the studio by Steven Meisel and styled by Carine Roitfeld, sporting a dewy makeup look and a wet hairstyle throughout.

Despite the team’s best efforts on set, our forum members weren’t too impressed with the outcome. “I guess Meisel really loves the Hadid sisters. I can’t help but think how amazing Grace Elizabeth would have looked in this. I like Bella, but she’s just not the type of girl for these ‘vintage/classy’ kind of shoots,” wrote guimon.

“She doesn’t look her best here. It’s like if she has seen a ghost!” Lola701 said. (more…)
