Nora Attal Just Scored Her First Solo Vogue Cover(s), for Vogue Arabia’s December Issue

From making waves with Gigi Hadid on the premiere issue to featuring Halima Aden as the first hijab-wearing model to grace the cover of Vogue to Rihanna as an Egyptian queen, we’ve been hooked on Vogue Arabia ever since its launch earlier this year. The magazine now gives up its December 2017 cover to Nora Attal, marking the model’s first solo Vogue cover appearance. Photographed by Emma Summerton, the British model of Moroccan decent features on two covers, wearing Prada on one (below) and sporting Louis Vuitton on the other (after the jump).

Naturally, when a magazine serves up two covers, only one is bound to stand out “Too much! I’m growing on Nora each time I see her work, and her beauty still come through here, but the styling and art direction is a bit excessive,” said Benn98 regarding the cover above.

“The first one looks like a bad Star Wars cover for an entertainment magazine,” complained CrisGalaxy. (more…)

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).

“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…)
