Oprah Looks Regal and Refined on British Vogue’s August Cover

Edward Enninful continues to give the industry and newsstand a refreshing overhaul. He just awarded Ariana Grande her very first Vogue cover appearance last month, brought Cara Delevinge and Steven Meisel together for the first time the month prior and gave us a dosage of diversity back in May. Keeping standards up, Enninful drops yet another memorable cover featuring none other than… Oprah! The American philanthropist and global superstar receives the Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott treatment, styled by Enninful himself in a custom Stella McCartney gown, resulting in a regal, refined and sophisticated newsstand cover (below). For the black and white subscribers cover (after the jump), Oprah channels her inner superhero.

It was simply love at first sight for our forum members. “Um… this is WONDERFUL. Oprah looks as glamorous and beautiful as she’s ever looked. It’s a stunning photograph of her,” raved happycanadian the moment the cover dropped.

“The image is gorgeous, Oprah looks amazing… everything about it works perfectly for me actually,” shared LastNight.

“This is a real wow moment for me, I don’t even notice the layout because of Oprah’s elegance and that beautiful color palette. Mert & Marcus have actually done an incredible job of capturing her beauty,” dodencebt applauded. (more…)

A Chanel-Clad Lily-Rose Depp Is Vogue Russia’s Cover Girl for July 2018

Despite earning Karl Lagerfeld‘s seal of approval, tFS forum members have never been that impressed with Lily-Rose Depp. The 19-year-old daughter of (do we even need mention?) has been the face of Chanel numerous times, starred alongside The Kaiser himself on Vogue Paris, covered British Vogue and Vogue Japan, and took to the cover of CR Fashion Book — all to the dismay of our forums. It seems Vogue Russia is next in trying to make Lily happen, giving up its July 2018 cover to the model/actress. Photographed by Boo George and styled by Katerina Zolototrubova, Lily was captured at a beachfront location, flashing us a hint of a smile over her shoulder while wearing head-to-toe Chanel (natch).

Once again, Lily couldn’t win over our unfiltered forum members. “The styling is nice, but Lily doesn’t make an impact at all,” said forum member Nymphaea the second the cover came to light.

“She looks like she’s 12! It’s a boring image, certainly not Vogue worthy. NEXT!” disapproved Bertrando3.

“Are they still trying to make her happen?” asked GivenchyHomme.

Adwoa Aboah and Naomi Campbell Have a Moment on Love Magazine’s 10th Anniversary Issue Teaser

Who’d have thought Love Magazine would be celebrating its 10th anniversary this year? Time certainly does fly since we can still vividly remember racing to the newsstand for the magazine’s very first issue with a nude Beth Ditto on the front — can you? The upcoming Fall 2018 issue of the British biannual publication helmed by Katie Grand marks the magazine’s 20th installment and it’s getting us hyped for the August release. Photographed by Love regulars Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, Adwoa Aboah and Naomi Campbell help kickstart the celebrations sharing a playful moment in the enticing issue teaser (below).

Members of our forums are optimistic about the celebratory issue. “I somehow really like this,” admitted mistress_f. “Not looking forward to the inevitable other 34 covers with nepotism children and teenagers I’ve never heard of, though!”

“It’s surprisingly nice, despite all wretched parties involved. I wonder how much more stunning it would have been only with Adwoa. I expect Kate [Moss] and Lara [Stone] will follow, and perhaps Kendall [Jenner] too,” added Benn98.

“I really love this, just wish it would only be this cover, but knowing Love, there will be 300 covers,” ranted [Piece Of Me].

Serena Williams Covers InStyle’s ‘Badass Women’ Issue for August 2018

With both Vogue and British Harper’s Bazaar giving up covers to Serena Williams this year, she’s become quite the familiar face at the newsstand. Now, for InStyle‘s August 2018 edition, who better to front the title’s inaugural ‘Badass Women Issue’ than the tennis ace? Photographed by Robbie Fimmano and styled by Julie Pelipas, Serena wears an oversized Eric Javitz hat and a halter neck dress from The Row as she stares out into the distance (foreseeing winning Wimbledon for the eighth time?) in the cover image.

The cover received mixed reviews from our forum members. “I think this is the most beautiful Serena Williams has ever been captured on a cover,” said dodencebt the second the cover came to light.

“Wow, this is really the year of Serena! If you’d have told me years ago that she’d be the one booking all these covers who normally shun women like herself, I’d not have believed it. InStyle‘s covers always look so fake, this one is no different. Way too much retouching. British Harper’s Bazaar showed her true looks (and skin!),” critiqued Benn98.

“They could have done so much better with her. Happy to see her scoring all these covers though,” Miss Dalloway added.

Kate McKinnon’s Glamour Cover Shot Looks More Like a Passport Photo

Three months later and our forum members still can’t figure out what Samantha Barry was thinking when she introduced Glamour‘s questionable redesign with the May 2018 issue. Following in the footsteps of Melissa McCarthy and Anne Hathaway, Kate McKinnon becomes Glamour‘s latest victim as she stars on the August 2018 issue. Photographed by Miguel Reveriego and styled by Vanessa Chow, the American actress and comedian serves passport photo realness in the questionable close-up portrait.

Another month, another issue our forums will be passing by at the newsstand. “Besides the horrid cover, the ‘Authentic. Accessible. Relevant’ tagline has me reaching for the sick bucket,” said 333101 the moment the cover struck.

“What on earth is happening with fashion magazines!! Sigh,” added Miss Dalloway.

“It’s heartbreaking for us longtime fans. They’re doubling down on stupid in their efforts to attract fickle millennials,” replied Handbag Queen. “What a mess of a cover. All three from this new EIC have been horrid. Great hire, Glamour!”

Kaia Gerber and Gigi Hadid in Moschino’s Fall 2018 Campaign Are Out of This World

While his Moschino collections tend to be hit or miss with fashion critics (and tFS forum members), there’s no doubt that Jeremy Scott’s advertising campaigns are always spectacular. Ever since Scott took the reins of the Italian fashion label back in 2014, he has brilliantly tapped photographer Steven Meisel to capture his vision. Every campaign is just as good as the last, with last season’s casting of Naomi Campbell (and peers) having gone down a total treat. Expanding on the theme of the Fall 2018 show, models Kaia Gerber, Gigi Hadid and Vittoria Ceretti (and no doubt a few others) are painted extraterrestrial shades of orange, yellow and aqua for the recently unveiled Fall 2018 campaign, with Meisel once again behind the lens and Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele on styling duties.

Surprisingly, the kitschy new campaign faced mixed reactions from our forum members. “My least favorite Moschino campaign by Meisel. This is so boring and uninspiring. I was expecting something a lot more creative considering the show/collection theme,” voiced guimon the moment the campaign dropped.

“Oh no, now let’s wait for Bella. Kaia’s shot is great because she actually looks like Jacky Kennedy, but Gigi?? ENOUGH OF THEM!” cried zacatecas570.
