Daisy Ridley Suffers From Questionable Styling on Glamour’s January 2018 Cover

If you thought you’d seen the last of Daisy Ridley at your local newsstand for a while, think again. After snagging covers for the likes of American Vogue, V Magazine and British ELLE within a matter of months, Daisy takes a step towards overexposure with yet another cover, this time for the January issue of Glamour. Kick-starting 2018 for the magazine, the Brit actress wears a full Calvin Klein look in the playful cover image shot by photographer Steven Pan and styled by Glamour‘s own Jillian Davison.

Despite the team’s best efforts, it wasn’t enough to make our forum members dash to the newsstand. “Must admit that I’m not a fan of this as much as I have been with Daisy’s previous newsstand offerings. This is awkward, flat and looks rather rushed and incoherent. Not to even mention the styling!” exclaimed vogue28.

“Neither am I!” replied an underwhelmed Benn98. “I was so happy to see them return to the neater art direction for December, now we have this messy graffiti again? Readers must be responding well to it, God knows why. The shot isn’t my favorite, and it’s mainly due to the styling.” (more…)

Anna Cleveland Delivers a Haunting, Unconventional Cover for Vogue Portugal’s December 2017 Issue

Vogue Portugal has been quietly killing it at the newsstand (and on our forums) lately and now raises the bar even further with its offering for December 2017. Model Anna Cleveland works her magic in the striking, yet unconventional image wearing Jean Paul Gaultier. The haunting cover, captured by photographer Dan Beleiu, features a unique composition offset by a single cover line: Human.

Our forum members had nothing but praise for Portuguese Vogue‘s latest. “I actually like this! Something different than the usual covers these days. I would take this over some basic cover bore fest,” said simon, giving his seal of approval.

“I thought I was in Vogue Ukraine‘s thread,” added fluxxx, referencing another edition of Vogue which has also been riding a wave of success. (more…)

After 10 Years, Kate Moss Returns as the Face of Saint Laurent

Who remembers the spectacular Kate Moss campaign for Yves Saint Laurent’s Spring 2008 collection where she peered through the doors of the YSL museum in Paris? We sure do. Now, 10 years later, the legendary British supermodel is back fronting a campaign for the brand. The reunion is hardly a surprise, since Kate is the perfect embodiment of Vaccarello’s new rock ‘n’ roll, Parisian-chic Saint Laurent aesthetic. Photographed in the studio against a stark white backdrop with some heavy lighting, Kate is instantly recognizable in the black and white campaign images.

Unfortunately, the campaign failed to excite our forum members. “She’s not delivering it IMO, looks random and reminds me of Pamela Anderson in a way,” voiced forum member Nymphaea upon seeing the photos.

“Booooring… neeext,” snoozed KissMiss. (more…)

Imaan Hammam Cements Her Cover Girl Status on Two Flawless Covers for Porter Winter 2017

There’s no doubt that 2017 has been Imaan Hammam’s breakout year. She has managed to amass a total of nine Vogue covers throughout the year (most recently starring alongside Pharrell Williams on U.S. Vogue‘s special cover for December) and secured a cover of Porter with Doutzen Kroes back in May. It’s no surprise that Porter has invited the 21-year-old Dutch beauty for a return engagement, starring on two covers for the Winter Escape issue photographed by Camilla Akrans. Imaan captivates in a striped off-the-shoulder Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini top on the newsstand cover (below) and poses for a flawless close-up on the subscriber cover (after the jump).

The two covers were an instant hit with our forum members. “Bright and beautiful indeed,” applauded a delighted dodencebt.

“Imaan is really one-of-a-kind. Shining like no other. Wonderful covers,” admired Valentine27. (more…)

Joan Smalls Just Landed Her First Fragrance Campaign, for Moschino Fresh Couture Gold

Whether it’s the current Fall 2017 fashion campaign starring the likes of Slick Woods or Linda Evangelista peddling Moschino’s Fresh Couture fragrance, photographer Steven Meisel has helped propel Jeremy Scott’s vision for Moschino to a new level. Unfortunately, Meisel’s presence is sorely missed with the unveiling of the brand’s new Fresh Couture Gold fragrance campaign shot by Giampaolo Sgura. Model Joan Smalls fronts the ads (marking her first fragrance campaign ever) wearing an OTT Moschino look while clutching an oversized bottle of the scent.

Our forum members weren’t too impressed with the campaign. “It looks as cheap as I expected after reading the title,” snarled anlabe32 upon checking out the campaign images.

“Dry and boring! I don’t see the point of doing a Carlyne [Cerf de Dudzeele] & Meisel inspired thing without Carlyne and Meisel themselves,” stated Lola701. (more…)

Lily-Rose Depp Lacks Presence on Vogue Japan’s Bland January 2018 Cover

Vogue Japan’s offerings throughout 2017 were pretty solid (despite a few mishaps here and there) and the magazine now readies us for the new year with the first issue of 2018, starring Lily-Rose Depp. From her advertising campaigns to cover appearances on the likes of Vanity Fair France and CR Fashion Book, our forums have had a love/hate relationship with the actress-slash-Chanel-brand-ambassador. Currently wearing (you guessed it) Chanel in the bland new cover of Japanese Vogue shot by Peter Lindbergh, Lily’s latest isn’t enough to win over tFS forum members.

Forum members, once again, complained about Lily’s lack of presence. “I like the black background, it’s a throwback to the mid-2000s. Unfortunately, the background is all I like. Lily is very dull in print. Nothing against her personally, but people should really stop forcing her on us,” GivenchyHomme stated the moment the cover struck.

“Is she supposed to look dead on purpose?” asked a dumbfounded Growl. (more…)
