Bella Hadid’s Sun-Soaked Covers of Vogue Mexico Are Spectacular

Our forum members are notorious for their love/hate relationship with Bella Hadid. Whether she’s receiving a well-deserved cover of Harper’s Bazaar, fronting the cover of Vogue for what feels like the hundredth time, or starring in a “trashy” advertising campaign for Giuseppe Zanotti, members of our forum are always quick to share their opinion. Bella’s latest, however, seems to have won over even the haters. As documented across the model’s social media feeds (and our forums), the 21-year-old beauty took a trip to Mexico last month with photographer Chris Colls, which resulted in a spectacular array of sun-soaked covers for Mexican Vogue’s July 2018 issue.

To say the covers were gorgeous would be an understatement. “Before all the ‘I’m so sick of her!!’ comments start, let me just say that this is an unequivocally beautiful image and cover. I can’t get over her face here – she’s just so gorgeous,” happycanadian immediately wrote.

“She does one thing, but she does it well. I’d probably define that ‘one thing’ as ‘looking like an exquisitely carved statue’, and it works for print,” stated tigerrouge.

Kasia Smutnaik Stars on Vogue Poland’s Carefree Summer Covers

Despite last month’s Adwoa Aboah disaster, you have to commend Vogue Poland for at least trying something new with each cover since the inaugural issue back in March. Now five issues in, the publication counts the likes of Eva Herzigova and Natalia Vodianova as cover girls and now gives up its double July/August 2018 edition to Polish actress Kasia Smutnaik (you have to love a magazine that champions homegrown talent). Photographed by Stanislaw Boniecki and styled in Céline by Daniela Agnelli, Kasia embraces the mood of summer in the gleeful and carefree newsstand cover (below) and appears just as effortless in the black and white subscribers cover (after the jump).

Our forums were a divided bunch once the covers dropped. “Now, this is beautiful. Totally into it,” raved Miss Dalloway.

“So pure and clean, I love it,” added Nomar.

“Way too plain and white for a Vogue cover. Loathe saying this, but where’s the fashion?” asked an unimpressed Benn98.

Luna Bijl Electrifies on Vogue Korea’s High-Voltage July Covers

Following a cinematic Grace Elizabeth cover last month, Vogue Korea is slaying the game lately, while model Luna Bijl, favorite of the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Emmanuelle Alt and our very own forum members, continues to propel her career to new heights. The two coming together should be nothing short of extraordinary, right? It sure is, as the Dutch beauty graces two electrifying July 2018 covers, serving high-voltage glam (just like her Vogue Russia debut back in March) photographed by Hyea W. Kang.

Our forum members loved the outcome. “It’s a fact. [Emmanuelle] Alt discovered a star. Luna has been in a non-stopping Vogue cover ride since her VP debut two years ago. On this one, kudos to the graphic designers for the layout, feels fresh,” wrote Legolas.

“I can agree with that, Alt really launched her career. These covers are bold and fun,” Miss Dalloway echoed.

Vogue Korea’s on a roll. Another striking cover. Luna looks fantastic!” mathiaskatz said.

Yara Shahidi Is a Vision in Chanel Couture on Harper’s Bazaar Arabia’s Flawless June Covers

You just have to give it up for Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. The magazine continuously proves that it won’t be put in the shadows by its competitor Vogue Arabia, featuring the likes of Kim Kardashian, Bella Hadid and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as cover stars. The magazine drops yet another simply stunning offering in 2018 staring Yara Shahidi. The 18-year-old American actress, activist and “voice of a generation” was photographed by Taylor Tupy and styled by Andreas Kokkino for Arabian Bazaar‘s June 2018 cover shoot. Yara looks soft and demure in the pixel-perfect newsstand cover image (below) donning feathered and sequined Chanel Haute Couture, wearing various looks from the iconic French fashion house’s Spring 2018 couture collection throughout the entire feature and ultimately wins over our forum members.

Yara in Chanel is obviously an ambassadorship just waiting to happen. “What a fabulous cover! Chanel better get her an international Vogue cover next,” commented dodencebt the second the cover came to light.

“They should get her a campaign first!” added Lola701. “She can sell make-up and could be perfect for the ‘Chance‘ fragrance!”

“I love Yara very much. What a beautiful, talented and smart lady. I think she really fits the modern Chanel persona and definitely wears Chanel very well from her outings and this editorial. I hope they sign her on as official ambassador,” voiced TaylorBinque.

In the same frame of mind was forum member Khabeer: “While American Harper’s Bazaar is wasting their covers on those Hadids and Jenners, Arabia is showing you how it’s done! Yara is indeed worthy of such a cover. Not only does she have great style and beauty -she’s smart, and has a lot of great opinions on diverse subject matter. I’m here for this cover in every way. It’s simply breathtaking!”

“Absolutely gorgeous,” wrote brikin.

“Love this publication and Yara is incredibly gorgeous on the cover,” TeeVanity said.

IndigoHomme described the cover as “flawless” and we couldn’t agree more.

Amy Adams Photographs Beautifully for Marie Claire’s July Cover

Marie Claire is powering through with newfound confidence after a fresh redesign back in May, continuing its winning streak into July 2018. Following a series of strong covers with the likes of Hailee Steinfeld, Reese Witherspoon and Emily Ratajkowski, this month’s issue goes to Amy Adams. Not exactly a fashion magazine’s go-to cover girl (unfortunately), Amy shows just how beautifully she can photograph in the intimate newsstand cover image (below), captured by Brigitte Lacombe and styled by Joseph Errico.

The majority of our forum members welcomed the sight of Marie Claire‘s latest with open arms. “For me, this is an exquisite shot, all about subtle colors and gently flattering makeup,” admired tigerrouge.

“It really captures the delicateness of her features! The new art direction is starting to grow on me,” added magsaddict.

“Interesting choice, I quite like it. This is a reminder that Sharp Objects must be coming out soon,” wrote TheoG.

Birgit Kos Looks Like a Supermodel on Vogue Brazil’s June 2018 Covers

Every now and then there’s a certain model who captivates not only our forums but the industry. We couldn’t get enough (still can’t, really) of Grace Elizabeth last year following a spectacular Vogue Italia cover and a campaign for Max Mara. Now, 2018 is shaping up to be the year of Birgit Kos. After walking just about every major show during fashion week and an appearance on Vogue Italia‘s April offering, Birgit now takes to the cover of Vogue Brazil. The Dutch beauty stars on the title’s signature duo of covers for June 2018, serving some serious supermodel realness in the retro-inspired images, captured by photographer Mariana Maltoni with styling from Pedro Sales.

Members of our forums were all for seeing Birgit. “She’s everywhere! If Grace Elizabeth was the model of 2017, Birgit is the face of this year. Hope she gets a cover by [Steven] Meisel,” praised forum member ivano upon checking out the covers.

“Wow! She is such a stunning girl!” mikel admired.

“Supermodel vibes. So happy to see her gracing Vogue Brazil!” wrote guimon.
