Bella Hadid Gives Good Face on Harper’s Bazaar Arabia’s October Cover

After Kim Kardashian fabulously channeled Cher on the September cover of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia last month, the magazine is suddenly on our radar — and even more so now with the unveiling of the October 2017 cover. Fresh from her recent stint on Vogue Arabia, Bella Hadid graces Arabian Bazaar‘s latest and serves good face (per usual) in the magazine’s captivating and enchanting new cover image. Photographed by Victor Demarchelier, Bella ventures to Venice for the shoot and cements her affiliation with upscale Italian label Bulgari by wearing a whole host of jewelry and accessories throughout the cover story.

The majority of our forum members were pleasantly surprised with the outcome. “I don’t know about the necklace-on-the-head thing, but holy crap that’s a gorgeous picture of Bella. That FACE is just stunning,” confessed happycanadian upon checking out the cover.

“The cover is looking good! Far better than her Vogue Arabia cover,” added badgalcrush. (more…)

What Did Vogue Turkey Do to Natasha Poly on the October 2017 Cover?

Rarely does Natasha Poly disappoint, whether she’s stomping down a catwalk, gracing the advertising campaign of a major fashion brand or fronting the cover of Vogue. She’s certainly no stranger to Vogue with 55 cover appearances under her Gucci belt. Her latest, for Vogue Turkey’s October 2017 issue, isn’t quite what you would expect from the seasoned pro. Photographed by Blommers & Schumm, Natasha tries her best to model her way through the atrocious styling in the gaudy cover image, complete with a horrific hairstyle to make matters even worse.

Per usual, our forum members weren’t afraid to call out the magazine. “I’m honestly not sure it could look any worse than this,” voiced a dumbfounded dodencebt the moment the cover came to light.

“CRIMPED HAIR? These are truly dark times we are living in,” added VogueDisciple93. (more…)

Vittoria Ceretti and Steven Meisel Push the Envelope for Loewe’s Gorgeous Spring 2018 Campaign

Leave it to a brand like Loewe, a photographer like Steven Meisel and a model like Vittoria Ceretti to completely redefine the standards of an advertising campaign in 2017. Following a fairly straightforward Gisele Bündchen campaign last season, Meisel is back with the label’s new imagery for Spring 2018 and he doesn’t disappoint. Serving major Irving Penn realness, the team constructed a series of images themed around “fruits.” Going all out in a successful attempt at pushing boundaries and expectations, Guido was put on hairstyling duties, Pat McGrath worked her magic with the makeup and Benjamin Bruno was at hand for styling.

It should come as no surprise to learn the campaign is a sensation, according to our forums. “I love it, both concept and execution. It works well with the Loewe aesthetic,” commented dodencebt.

“Love the concept, it’s spectacular actually. Very Loewe. This would be such a perfect entry for them into the beauty market,” wrote a delighted Benn98. (more…)

Karl Lagerfeld’s Photography Doesn’t Do Marine Vatch Justice in the New Chanel Cruise Campaign

Karl Lagerfeld sure does love his muses and Marine Vacth is the latest brand ambassador to land a coveted Chanel campaign. Following in the footsteps of Kristen Stewart, Cara Delevingne, Arizona Muse and Luna Bijl, the French actress cements her status as a Lagerfeld favorite by becoming the face of Chanel’s Cruise 2018 collection. To mark the occasion, Karl captured Vacth with a cropped hairstyle against a beautiful studio backdrop — with Vacth doing very little in the images.

Our forum members immediately turned to their favorite Lagerfeld topic: questioning whether his photography skills were up to scratch. “Yes to Marine, no to Karl’s photography,” stated Ed at once.

“Marine is such a stunning woman in person. Her eyes are stunning, these photos don’t do her justice,” chimed in maxlinden. (more…)

Brie Larson’s Three Covers for Porter Winter 2017 Are the Best She’s Ever Looked

Is Porter about to break its streak of awkward-looking covers? We sure hope so as the publication gets us hyped for the Winter 2017 issue. Our forums have been huge champions of everything Porter since its 2014 debut but the magazine has allowed standards to slip over recent months. Thankfully, there seems to be a glimmer of hope with the unveiling of three new covers featuring Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson, photographed by Camilla Akrans. Celebrating “incredible women,” Brie wears Gucci in the first of two newsstand covers (below) and Emilia Wickstead in the second (after the jump). Porter opted for a stunning and commanding close-up for the limited cover for subscribers (pictured further down this page).

The majority of our forum members were quick to give their approval. “These are beautiful. My favorite covers for a while. The second is so modern, particularly for a celebrity cover. Never seen Brie Larson look this good either!” championed mercyminx.

“I like them both! Finally something flawless and classic Porter. They should work more often with Camilla. Never thought of Brie as a classic beauty, her style is much cooler, but she looks great here,” noted Benn98. (more…)

Dakota Johnson’s Stiff and Uncomfortable Vogue Spain Cover Misses the Mark

Vogue Spain practically received a standing ovation on our forums last month for its Bella Hadid cover (after she’d covered just about every other edition of Vogue for September with mixed success). Now, Dakota Johnson (current muse of Alessandro Michele) fronts the October 2017 issue, playing coy while wearing a rhinestone-covered Gucci (obvi) bodysuit in the cover image lensed by Emma Summerton. Was the cover enough to continue the magazine’s winning streak?

Unfortunately, the cover wasn’t enough to please our forum members. “What an odd and random choice and what a try-hard cover. Are they Lui now? Reminds me of a cheaper version of that Linda Evangelista cover by Meisel for Vogue Italia. And why does it look as if she were added to the photo? The head and shadows look so fake,” said MON at once.

“This could have been a stellar cover with a great model and better execution,” pointed out KissMiss. (more…)
