In case you missed Taraji P. Henson‘s sexy cover from last month, we suggest you grab a copy quick now that W magazine is gearing up for the release of its September edition. The magazine unveiled the cover earlier today with a sultry Gigi Hadid showcased in a beautiful black and white portrait image with styling from Edward Enninful. Legendary photographer Steven Meisel stood behind the lens to capture the bombshell’s solo moment.
The cover became an instant hit with our forum members. “Gigi looks stunning in this shot. There’s something really late 80s Cindy Crawford about it,” Nepenthes admired as soon as the cover dropped.
“Now THAT is the sort of cover I’ve been waiting for. Gigi doing glamour is always welcome in my world,” raved tigerrouge soon after.
Avogadro was a fan also, writing, “The BEST I’ve seen from Gigi. Kudos to Meisel, he’s a master.”
Also showing the cover some enthusiasm was TeeVanity: “So gorgeous, love that she’s on the cover. She’s a star.”
“Great! Meisel is a genius because he gives us emotions. I feel something when I’m seeing one of his pictures. So joyful and optimistic even if it’s not groundbreaking. Gigi is a beautiful girl. She looks like a modern Michaela Bercu. That’s why I think so many people are obsessed with her. She is that kind of 80s beauty,” noted Lola701.
“Ah I love it! Gigi by Meisel! Wow. This is beautiful. She is beautiful,” shared an elated MON.

DVF really knows how to get our attention. To launch her latest handbag for Fall 2015, Diane von Furstenberg turned to Peter Lindbergh to direct a short film for the campaign. And since the bag is named Secret Agent, the film stars Karlie Kloss as a seductive spy.

Styled by Edward Enninful, Kloss parades through the city dodging paparazzi in true fashion: wearing a DVF dress and carrying the new Secret Agent bag. According to the website, the DVF Secret Agent “is the ultimate day-to-night bag: a streamlined tote that conceals a detachable, zip off go-anywhere clutch. Lightweight and customizable, she is always ready at a moment’s notice, the ultimate accomplice in everything you do.” Yes, you read that right. The Secret Agent is essentially two bags in one—the larger tote for daytime, and the clutch for nighttime.
Kloss showcases how the bag transforms during her sultry James Bond-esque mission in the film. “The DVF Secret Agent bag and the character Karlie plays are really metaphors for the DVF woman,” von Furstenberg said. “She is a businesswoman, a mother, a lover, a friend. She is always on the go. Now we have created the ultimate accomplice for every facet of the life she lives fully.” (more…)
There’s often so much shade thrown at magazines these days, but it’s almost impossible not to congratulate Vogue Australia on its latest effort. As reported in our Cover Rumor Thread, Nicole Kidman participated in a shoot with Will Davidson and the incredible stylist that is Christine Centenera last month. The outcome of the shoot on location in the Australian outback ended up as Vogue‘s all-important September cover feature — and we’re sold. The Aussie actress appears stunning and natural like never before in front of Davidson’s lens wearing a beige suede jacket teamed with a plain white dress, proving less is always more.
Forum members couldn’t wait to express their delight. “BEYOND her U.S. cover! Beyond! This is how U.S. Vogue should’ve done it,” shouted MON.
“Vogue U.S. should be so embarrassed! You can’t beat Will Davidson’s outdoor photography,” HeatherAnne agreed.
GreyVetiver was full of admiration, too, declaring, “Anna [Wintour] should be ashamed of her team.”
Also full of praise was GlamVal. “I love it.. Better than American Vogue,” he wrote with TaylorBinque adding, “A huge slap at Vogue U.S. I’m loving this.”
Benn98 quickly said, “Love this, Nicole’s first Vogue Australia cover in quite a few years, and it’s beautiful.”
“TONS better than her Vogue U.S. cover but I still really dislike her,” expressed KateTheGreatest as things started to go a little down under.
“Better than U.S. Vogue but the hair is dreadful,” noted ThatGuyPaul.
