Zoe Saldana Stars on a Lackluster InStyle Cover (Forum Buzz)

InStyle failed to impress with its Mindy Kailing cover  and now tries to win us over with the July 2015 issue. Zoe Saldana graces the cover of the magazine’s newest offering, wearing a dress by Dolce & Gabbana as she flashes an energetic smile and plays with her hair for photographer Paul Maffi. But forum members slammed the image for its lackluster styling, hair and makeup.

MON was the first forum member to get the discussion started. “Something is awfully wrong about that cover. Not to be mean but she looks tired like she’s saying ‘I haven’t had enough sleep but I have to smile for this magazine.’ Also, that lipstick looks fake! Photoshop some more!” he complained.

“I could not write it better,” laughed GlamorousBoy in agreement.

“What bothers me most is the lack of production values. It really looks like they dropped by her place and shot this in a rush. The dress is unremarkable, hair is too simple for a cover. This wouldn’t look out of place on Easy Living. She just doesn’t look polished enough for my liking,” added an underwhelmed Benn98.

“Zoe’s ed is actually pretty good. Nothing outstanding but it’s cozy, she’s lovely and I really like the softness these pics convey,” admired Aby, the moment Saldana’s cover story surfaced.

But Benn98 wasn’t having any of it and returned to the thread, voicing, “Cannot bear to look at Zoe Saldana’s edit. She’s not the most captivating subject. There’s literally no styling and the photography is just lazy and contrived. I hope this won’t be the new direction for future editorials. Bring [Giampaolo] Sgura back!!” he cried.

E.L. James surprised Fifty Shades of Grey fans two weeks ago when she announced a soon-to-be-released new book in the series, this time told from Christian Grey’s point of view.

It is already the #1 Kindle order for 2015 and folks are going off on social media about the newly-released tome.

Watch: Lady Gaga’s Spine-Tingling Cover of John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’

There’s been a lot of iffy covers and remixes of prestigious tunes over the time. Think the time Yolanda Be Cool somewhat slaughtered the magnificence of Rodriguez’ “Sugar Man”, Britney Spears’ karaoke take on “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll” and Madonna’s stab at “American Pie”, to name a few.

Despite the risk, today’s musicians keep taking a chance with old classics. The latest being Lady Gaga, who decided to give John Lennon’s 1971 best-selling single “Imagine” a go at the Opening Ceremony for the 2015 Europeans Games in Baku, Azerbaijan on June 12.

Gaga sat at a piano which looked as though it had a serious case of flower vomit for the performance, and avoided her usual kooky outfits by opting for a ethereal white gown instead. Before she started singing she offered a salute, either for the audience who had already started cheering or to the late musician who she was about to cover, or both. (more…)
