Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Proves She’s the Ultimate Harper’s Bazaar Australia Cover Girl

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley seems to be set for life in terms of fronting Harper’s Bazaar Australia (not to even mention the British edition of the magazine). The Brit beauty just landed her fourth cover of the Aussie publication for the title’s double June/July 2018 edition, proving she’s the ultimate Harper’s Bazaar cover girl. Photographed by Darren Mcdonald, the Brit model, who recently launched her very own beauty website, wears Alexander McQueen (styled by Kristen Ingersoll) in the newsstand cover image (below). In the black and white subscribers alternative (after the jump), Rosie cozies up at the beach wearing a Miu Miu coat.

The covers were a hot topic on our forums. “Is it just me or over the past few years, whenever Rosie scores a cover there is an 88% chance that it’s a Bazaar cover?” pointed out forum member badgalcrush.

“Seriously, Rosie is basically THE Bazaar model,” happycanadian replied. “She looks incredibly beautiful in the face in this shot. But I dislike the styling. I get that it’s fall/winter in Australia, so the darker palette makes sense… but I must say, I’m very bored of this gray background that’s become ubiquitous in the past couple years.”

Jessica Alba Does ‘Christmas in July’ on InStyle’s New Cover

We’re all for seeing a little bit of glamour on our favorite fashion glossies this time of year, especially when the majority of magazines tend to favor a more stripped-back beauty ideal (à la Porter‘s Anja Rubik cover). Yet InStyle gets summer glamour oh-so-wrong with the unveiling of its December July issue. Giving us just a little bit too much glitz is Jessica Alba, appearing exactly two years after her last cover for the magazine (which ironically gave us “sheer summer perfection“). Photographed by Anthony Maule this time around, Jessica wears a sequined Givenchy number, a bold red lip and a head full of curls.

Everything was just a little too much for our forum members. “Wow, it’s AWFUL! It looks like a little girl playing in her mother’s clothes, very late 70s early 80s but done in a very cliché way. NEXT!” exclaimed Bertrando3.

“Why her again? What is she promoting? Also, the photos are not good. She can’t handle the 70/80s look at all,” snarked RanThe.

“Nowadays you just can’t pick the worst U.S. cover of the month. They are all so bad,” slammed Srdjan.

Glamour’s Atrocious Cover Design Overpowers Anne Hathaway

Samantha Barry‘s first cover as editor-in-chief of Glamour featuring Melissa McCarthy was an epic fail according to our forum members and the unfortunate new redesign is sticking around for the magazine’s double June/July 2018 edition. Glamour’s latest victim cover girl is actress Anne Hathaway, whose last notable appearance on a mainstream fashion glossy was for ELLE back in April 2017. The actress and Ocean’s 8 star serves up a perfectly fine portrait, photographed by Billy Kidd.

It’s a shame the atrocious art direction ruins it and our forum members weren’t afraid to call the magazine out. “Glamour? Hah! What a joke!” mocked GivenchyHomme.

“They have got to regret this redesign,” added Jal718.

“Somehow they managed to make the new redesign even worse than the previous cover that had the ridiculous text font,” noted SLFC.

Kate Moss Fronts the Disappointing Debut Covers of More or Less Magazine

After the sudden announcement last week that Interview was shutting down after five decades of publication, we welcome the news of a fresh new fashion magazine hitting the market. More or less, a biannual fashion publication that promises to champion “creativity over cost and consumption” is headed up by Jaime Perlman, the former creative director of British Vogue. The magazine enlisted Brit supermodel and ultimate fashion icon Kate Moss to appear on two debut covers photographed by Ethan James Green, with Kate wearing pieces from her own vintage clothing collection.

First impressions are lasting impressions, right? Unfortunately, the covers failed to make an impact with our forum members. “Very underwhelming debut. What’s that masthead, and the title isn’t very creative at all? I suppose after years and years of running all those Kate Moss covers under Alexandra they naturally formed a bond. So to go with Kate for your first issue is very clever,” noted Benn98.

Sharing the same sentiments was dfl-001: “You go from British Vogue that had an oversaturation of Kate Moss and start a new title with… Kate Moss. Tiresome!”

Nicole Kidman Does Vintage Glamour on Tatler’s Revamped July Cover

Tatler magazine has never generated buzz on our forums — until now. The British fashion, lifestyle and high society magazine has a brand new EIC, Richard Dennen, along with a sleek new redesign for the July 2018 issue. Hollywood megastar Nicole Kidman is Dennen’s first cover girl, looking utterly flawless wearing Giambattista Valli in the ultra-glam cover shot photographed by Victor Demarchelier.

Tatler‘s new look was well-received on our forums the moment it dropped. “A celebrity? So this will be a new Vanity Fair?” caioherrero asked.

“This certainly makes me look at the magazine anew, and if it wants to take on the challenge of being the new Vanity Fair, I’m all for it,” approved tigerrouge.

“Wow, this is exciting! The magazine hasn’t been relevant for years so hopefully this will revive it,” Yohji commented.

Rebel Wilson Drowns in Fabric on Vogue Australia’s June Cover

You have to love a magazine that continuously supports its country’s homegrown talent and Vogue Australia is a shining example. We were served an array of diverse Aussie beauties back in April and a joyous Kylie Minogue kickstarted her 50th birthday celebration on the cover of last month’s issue. For June, the magazine selected Rebel Wilson, who looks pretty elated to be on the cover this month. Photographed by Nicole Bentley and styled by Kate Darvill, the Aussie actress was shot wearing an oversized Martin Grant coat worn over a voluminous Christian Siriano gown.

Given the volume of fabric, it was easy to predict the reactions from our forum members. “So depressing… even for winter. Magazines never know what to do with women who don’t have a model body,” kokobombon said.

“Most people don’t have a model body, yet social media has proven there are innumerable ways in which people with different body types can dress (up and down) and look amazing. But despite the endless oceans of inspiration available online, print magazines seem to cling to the old, tired methods of how they present different body types,” tigerrouge added.
