Kylie Minogue Is a Little Bit Country on the Cover of Vogue Spain

Following up a questionable Karlie Kloss cover last month with this month’s unflattering Kylie Minogue cover, it appears that Vogue Spain is in a bit of a slump. (In the magazine’s defense, Vogue Australia didn’t exactly photograph Kylie in her best light back in May, either.) For July 2018’s laid-back cover image, Kylie appears barefoot and bejeweled in Dolce & Gabbana and denim, styled by Phoebe Arnold and photographed by Boo George.

The cover just didn’t work for our forum members. “Fiesta? In that hideous denim? Looks more like she’s prepping for a performance here. I like the setting, especially the backdrop and theme, but the styling doesn’t live up to it. This could really have been rather epic if it was styled better,” commented Benn98.

“Why is it so hard to do a good Kylie Vogue cover? Does it always have to be so tacky and devoid of high-fashion?” asked Miss Dalloway.

“This cover looks like The Hollywood Reporter,” IndigoHomme mocked.

Lineisy Montero, Ruth Bell and More Star in Christian Dior’s Poorly Executed Fall 2018 Campaign

Ever since Maria Grazia Chiuri become the creative director of Christian Dior back in 2016, our forum members have fallen out of love with the Italian designer — especially when it comes to botching up Dior’s advertising campaigns. Following a solo Sasha Pivovarova last season, Maria’s back in the mood for multi-girl casting for Fall 2018. Lineisy Montero, Ruth Bell, Asya Reznikova and Evelyn Nagy star in the campaign inspired by both the student protests of the 1960s and French New Wave movies. The foursome took to the streets of Paris for the series of cinematic images, photographed by Pamela Hanson (who quietly replaces Patrick Demarchelier, obvi) and styled by Karl Templer throughout.

Per usual upon the campaign’s release, our forum members weren’t all too fond of the outcome. “Even Zara is better than this…” Lola701 said straight away.

“Who are these people? They have got to be kidding me with this c-list cast and campaign. Can’t believe this is coming from Dior,” expressed anlabe32.

“LMAO truly awful. Who is the creative director of this campaign? Child, that VLC Media Player subtitle is atrocious!” mocked an underwhelmed Ed.

Oprah Looks Regal and Refined on British Vogue’s August Cover

Edward Enninful continues to give the industry and newsstand a refreshing overhaul. He just awarded Ariana Grande her very first Vogue cover appearance last month, brought Cara Delevinge and Steven Meisel together for the first time the month prior and gave us a dosage of diversity back in May. Keeping standards up, Enninful drops yet another memorable cover featuring none other than… Oprah! The American philanthropist and global superstar receives the Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott treatment, styled by Enninful himself in a custom Stella McCartney gown, resulting in a regal, refined and sophisticated newsstand cover (below). For the black and white subscribers cover (after the jump), Oprah channels her inner superhero.

It was simply love at first sight for our forum members. “Um… this is WONDERFUL. Oprah looks as glamorous and beautiful as she’s ever looked. It’s a stunning photograph of her,” raved happycanadian the moment the cover dropped.

“The image is gorgeous, Oprah looks amazing… everything about it works perfectly for me actually,” shared LastNight.

“This is a real wow moment for me, I don’t even notice the layout because of Oprah’s elegance and that beautiful color palette. Mert & Marcus have actually done an incredible job of capturing her beauty,” dodencebt applauded. (more…)

A Chanel-Clad Lily-Rose Depp Is Vogue Russia’s Cover Girl for July 2018

Despite earning Karl Lagerfeld‘s seal of approval, tFS forum members have never been that impressed with Lily-Rose Depp. The 19-year-old daughter of (do we even need mention?) has been the face of Chanel numerous times, starred alongside The Kaiser himself on Vogue Paris, covered British Vogue and Vogue Japan, and took to the cover of CR Fashion Book — all to the dismay of our forums. It seems Vogue Russia is next in trying to make Lily happen, giving up its July 2018 cover to the model/actress. Photographed by Boo George and styled by Katerina Zolototrubova, Lily was captured at a beachfront location, flashing us a hint of a smile over her shoulder while wearing head-to-toe Chanel (natch).

Once again, Lily couldn’t win over our unfiltered forum members. “The styling is nice, but Lily doesn’t make an impact at all,” said forum member Nymphaea the second the cover came to light.

“She looks like she’s 12! It’s a boring image, certainly not Vogue worthy. NEXT!” disapproved Bertrando3.

“Are they still trying to make her happen?” asked GivenchyHomme.

Adwoa Aboah and Naomi Campbell Have a Moment on Love Magazine’s 10th Anniversary Issue Teaser

Who’d have thought Love Magazine would be celebrating its 10th anniversary this year? Time certainly does fly since we can still vividly remember racing to the newsstand for the magazine’s very first issue with a nude Beth Ditto on the front — can you? The upcoming Fall 2018 issue of the British biannual publication helmed by Katie Grand marks the magazine’s 20th installment and it’s getting us hyped for the August release. Photographed by Love regulars Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, Adwoa Aboah and Naomi Campbell help kickstart the celebrations sharing a playful moment in the enticing issue teaser (below).

Members of our forums are optimistic about the celebratory issue. “I somehow really like this,” admitted mistress_f. “Not looking forward to the inevitable other 34 covers with nepotism children and teenagers I’ve never heard of, though!”

“It’s surprisingly nice, despite all wretched parties involved. I wonder how much more stunning it would have been only with Adwoa. I expect Kate [Moss] and Lara [Stone] will follow, and perhaps Kendall [Jenner] too,” added Benn98.

“I really love this, just wish it would only be this cover, but knowing Love, there will be 300 covers,” ranted [Piece Of Me].

Serena Williams Covers InStyle’s ‘Badass Women’ Issue for August 2018

With both Vogue and British Harper’s Bazaar giving up covers to Serena Williams this year, she’s become quite the familiar face at the newsstand. Now, for InStyle‘s August 2018 edition, who better to front the title’s inaugural ‘Badass Women Issue’ than the tennis ace? Photographed by Robbie Fimmano and styled by Julie Pelipas, Serena wears an oversized Eric Javitz hat and a halter neck dress from The Row as she stares out into the distance (foreseeing winning Wimbledon for the eighth time?) in the cover image.

The cover received mixed reviews from our forum members. “I think this is the most beautiful Serena Williams has ever been captured on a cover,” said dodencebt the second the cover came to light.

“Wow, this is really the year of Serena! If you’d have told me years ago that she’d be the one booking all these covers who normally shun women like herself, I’d not have believed it. InStyle‘s covers always look so fake, this one is no different. Way too much retouching. British Harper’s Bazaar showed her true looks (and skin!),” critiqued Benn98.

“They could have done so much better with her. Happy to see her scoring all these covers though,” Miss Dalloway added.
