Dua Lipa Photographs Beautifully for Vogue Turkey’s May Cover

Vogue Turkey must’ve heard our cries last month, after our appalled forum members called out the disastrous Sasha Pivovarova cover. The magazine has seemingly upped the ante with a bold and surprising cover for May 2018, giving Dua Lipa (who is also currently fronting V Magazine) her very first Vogue appearance. Photographed by Benjamin Lennox, the Brit songstress wears Chanel and serves good face in the flawless close-up portrait cover image.

The cover went down a treat with the majority of our forum members. “She must be huge in Turkey to warrant this cover. Love her. Love this. I really like the shorter hair on her. Edgier look. The makeup is lovely too. I’d love her see a British Vogue cover,” said MON.

“I think she’s gorgeous, and it’s great to have new faces on the front of magazines,” commented tigerrouge.

“The best cover I saw from this magazine,” forum member caioherrero added.

Jennifer Lawrence Is the Ultimate Christian Dior Woman in the Pre-Fall 2018 Campaign — or Is She?

Ever since Jennifer Lawrence became affiliated with Christian Dior back in 2013, she has appeared in multiple advertising campaigns (everything from lipsticks to handbags) and her relationship with the brand is still going strong five years later. Several months after her last stint fronting Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Resort 2018 collection, the American actress does the honors once again, starring in the Pre-Fall 2018 campaign. Brigitte Lacombe was welcomed back (because Patrick Demarchelier‘s out of the question now, right?) as campaign photographer, shooting Jennifer around a makeshift studio setting.

Per usual regarding anything Jennifer Lawrence x Christian Dior, our forums were a divided bunch. “Stunning,” declared mikose the second the campaign came to light.

“These are beautiful,” added bluebanter.

“These are such boring images but some of them actually don’t look too bad,” acknowledged Nomar.

Iconic Model Debra Shaw Finally Graces the Cover of Vogue, Showing Everyone How It’s Done

As many of the mainstream fashion glossies stick to their tried and tested formulas, Vogue Portugal continues to pave the way in terms of creativity and innovation — while receiving the all-important seal of approval from our forum members. The magazine’s winning streak continues with the unveiling of its May 2018 issue, bestowing upon us Debra Shaw’s first-ever Vogue cover. After decades in the industry and multiple iconic runway appearances for the likes of Alexander McQueen and Christian Dior, the 41-year-old beauty shows everyone else how it’s truly done in the captivating cover image photographed by Dan Beleiu.

Vogue Portugal did it again! Happy to see Debra working in this amazing cover. Well done!” commented thatsfierce.

Sharing the same level of enthusiasm toward the cover was zoom: “Vogue Portugal giving me everything! Miss Debra Shaw getting the job done and teaching the children how to show up to work. Impressed by Dan Beleiu too!”

Is Sandra Bullock’s Cover of InStyle Boring or Beautiful?

It’s hard to believe that Sandra Bullock’s last notable appearance on a mainstream fashion glossy was for an over-Photoshopped cover of Glamour back in November 2015. Laura Brown welcomes Sandra back to the circuit, making the American actress InStyle‘s cover girl for June 2018 (following up a simply stunning Zoe Kravitz cover last month). Photographed by Carter Smith and styled by Paul Cavaco, Sandra radiates throughout the cover shoot and poses in a red printed Alberta Ferretti dress in the newsstand cover (below).

Once the cover broke, our forums were a divided bunch. “Gorgeous, she looks so good,” Miss Dalloway approved at once.

“Always nice to see someone different on the covers of fashion magazines. I did used to love when Sandra would be photographed by Steven Meisel for American Vogue!” vogue28 chimed in.

KINGofVERSAILLES liked what he was seeing too, commenting, “Some of the best shots of Sandra I think I’ve ever seen! Sufficiently dressed up but it still feels like Sandra Bullock, not a stylist creation. They’re not particularly imaginative and bold, but they’re very flattering.”

British Vogue and Steven Meisel Give Cara Delevingne Her Best Magazine Cover Ever

Ever since he took over at British Vogue, Edward Enninful has been under extreme scrutiny on our forums. Aside from hiring some diverse cover subjects, Enninful has been commissioning Steven Meisel to shoot select covers (Adwoa Aboah for December and Gigi & Bella Hadid for March), much to our delight. For June 2018, Meisel is back to shoot Cara Delevingne for the very first time, exceeding all expectations as she works a show-stopping Noel Stewart hat, styled by Joe McKenna.

Members of our forums were…speechless (well, almost). “This might be the first time I actually like Cara, it’s a stunning portrait,” admired marsnoop2 the moment the cover dropped.

“This is pretty iconic,” exclaimed Ed.

“Finally a great cover from Edward’s takeover, and this has potential to be iconic or even timeless,” MDNA applauded.

This Looks Nothing Like Gigi Hadid on the Cover of Vogue Italia’s May Issue

It was only a matter of time before Emanuele Farneti jumped on the Gigi Hadid bandwagon for Vogue Italia (since he’s already endorsed Bella Hadid) and, sure enough, there she is on the cover of the May 2018 issue. Replacing last month’s striking Adut Akech cover at the newsstands, Gigi does ‘High Voltage’ glamour for her third Italian Vogue cover appearance, decked out in glitzy Dolce & Gabbana. Joined by male model Justin Martin, the pair was Photoshopped photographed by Steven Klein and it didn’t take our forum members long to notice something…odd.

“Oh my goodness! THIS. DOES. NOT. LOOK. LIKE. HER,” MON said the second the cover came to light.

“There is absolutely no excuse for an image this Photoshopped to make it to print, let alone the cover! Come on!!” exclaimed fee de foret.

Also quick to express their horror was forum member anlabe32: “Words cannot describe how bad this is. Gigi is the worst model ever but even for her this is a new low.” (more…)
