Taylor Hill Strikes an Awkward Pose on Vogue Spain’s January Cover

Vogue Spain has been very hit or miss of late, producing covers that often fail to hit the mark (but certainly not Raquel Zimmermann‘s recent cover). After a passable Luna Bijl offering last month, the title welcomes Taylor Hill as its first cover girl of 2018. The Victoria’s Secret Angel and Michael Kors favorite was photographed in the studio by Bjorn Iooss wearing a fabulous floor-length Carolina Herrera creation in the unconventional full-length newsstand cover shot.

Members of our forums weren’t impressed with the cover. “That dress is too much for Taylor, her awkward pose shows it all. And it’s very similar to the lookbook shot. Not a winning look nor cover. Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a really good cover of hers,” noted Benn98.

“Not a cover-worthy shot, she is stunning, but this is such a nonevent for me. In fact, the new editor-in-chief [Eugenia de la Torriente] seems to lack the talent for striking cover images. I don’t like that dress either,” said an underwhelmed Miss Dalloway. (more…)

Drew Barrymore Plays Dress-Up for InStyle’s February Cover Shoot

Laura Brown continues to overhaul InStyle and despite taking it in a more commercial direction, our forum members still find joy in its covers (well… most of them). After a rather lackluster Zendaya cover for January, the publication dials it up a notch with cover girl Drew Barrymore for February 2018. Photographed by Anthony Maule, Drew poses up a storm in the eye-catching newsstand cover (below) wearing sequined Céline while adorably recreating some of her childhood photographs throughout the accompanying editorial.

Our forum members loved seeing Drew play dress-up. “Drew looks fabulous here. I love her expression and the pose is fire. And I’m honestly always here for her, she’s a genuine movie star and a throwback. Plus, she’s not all over the place these days, so I’m looking forward to what she has to say,” wrote happycanadian upon seeing the cover.

“I’m into this! At least it’s not her with a goofy grin and ringlet hair as usual,” appreciated Lucien122. (more…)

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…)
