Whether Anna Ewers is fronting Vogue Paris, Vogue Italia or Vogue Japan, we’re usually guaranteed an instant hit. Marking the German beauty’s third cover appearance on her native Vogue Germany, the current face of Isabel Marant fronts the title’s July 2017 issue. Photographed by Giampaolo Sgura, Anna (sporting new fringed hairstyle) wears a blue denim Christian Dior overalls at the beach.
Unfortunately, our forum members weren’t feeling Anna’s latest cover. “The hair is absolutely horrible. It’s eating her face alive! This cover could have been a knockout, instead we got ‘When bangs attack!'” cried a horrified GivenchyHomme.
“Whoa! Ewers?! I swear I looked at her face for almost a minute before it connected, she looks really different here, and it’s not the good kind of different!” exclaimed Miss Dalloway. (more…)
After a tragically styled Alexa Chung cover last month, British Vogue enlists the expertise of 90s supermodel Carolyn Murphy for its July 2017 issue, shot by photographic duo Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. We expected to see the American beauty grace the cover of an upcoming issue after having an exclusive peek at two covers back in April. Making an appearance 13 years after her last, Carolyn proves she’s every inch the ultimate cover girl, wearing laced Giorgio Armani Privé.
But for our forum members, it seemed not even Carolyn could have saved the outcome. “The first cover (above) is better, but it’s still dull and uninspiring. When last have we seen these kind of covers (late 90s, perhaps)? Absolutely outdated. I&V should be ashamed of themselves, because the second cover (below) is even worse,” noted Benn98.
“Carolyn’s work is usually superb but I am not impressed by this at all…” proclaimed KissMiss. (more…)
Vogue Turkey may not be our go-to choice when it comes to groundbreaking covers, but when the magazine gets it right, it sure does get it right. After a waste of two top models in April, Turkish Vogue redeems itself with a gorgeous June 2017 cover shoot. Fresh off the cover of Vogue Brazil, Victoria’s Secret model Sara Sampaio eases us into summer by posing poolside for photographer Liz Collins.
Our forum members instantly applauded the cover. “Sara looks stunning here, love the summery shot. There isn’t one thing I would change about this cover. Hope Collins will take full advantage of shooting in Bodrum, despite what I think of Turkey, it’s still a beautiful city,” wrote an impressed Benn98.
“Pretty! She looks fresh faced and natural here,” complemented liaa. (more…)
Vogue Mexico continues to land top models and big-name photographers, having recently received praise from our forums for the Lara Stone x Giampaolo Sgura offering for May. As the magazine releases its June 2017 edition, it scores yet another in-demand model, securing a cover shoot with Edita Vilkeviciute. Photographed by current forum favorite Chris Colls, the Lithuanian beauty is welcomed back to the fashion bible, modeling on location at a Mexican beach wearing various looks from Gucci, Christian Dior and Nike.
Once again, Mexican Vogue had the attention of our forum members. “The second cover (below) is the best, I’m always so happy to see Edita,” raved KateTheGreatest.
“The first one (above) is my favorite,” chimed in Sensation. (more…)
Our forums almost universally panned Porter’s current offering featuring models Doutzen Kroes and Imaan Hammam in the wilderness of Africa. The Edit, Net-a-Porter’s weekly digital magazine, however, is getting rave reviews this week with cover girl Gwyneth Paltrow. Photographed at the beach byChris Colls, Gwyneth pulls off the casual summer vibe with effortless ease. (Side note: actual skin texture is visible in the cover photo!)
“Gwyneth looks exceptional here. She just gets better with age. And it really doesn’t appear like she’s had any work done, which is an absolute rarity amongst her peers,” credited forum member happycanadian after checking out the shoot.
“The cover for the Gwyneth editorial is actually the best I’ve seen of her in a long time. She looks her age but also very natural and attractive. Chris Colls is very talented,” added an elated 333101. (more…)
You’re about to see a whole lot more of Ashley Graham at the newsstand this month. She currently fronts UK Harper’s Bazaar and is now all smiles on the newly unveiled cover of US Glamour, photographed by Nathaniel Goldberg. Covering the magazine’s July 2017 edition, Ashley flaunts her curves in the summery image wearing a vibrant orange Victoria Beckham dress worn over La Blanca swimwear.
The cover left our forums divided. “I think it’s great for July, good energy, nice colors, and major respect to Graham, and the amount of big covers she is getting at this point in her career,” commented Miss Dalloway the moment the cover struck.
“A lot of people talk about becoming a brand, but this girl is out there doing it. Love seeing her success, may she continue to land the cover of everything,” stated Luxx. (more…)
