Naomi Campbell Slays Numéro’s (NSFW) Black and White April Cover

Our forum members have been complaining lately about how lame and redundant Numéro magazine has become. The French publication used to hold an extremely high standard amongst its competitors, but the covers have become increasingly lifeless and lackluster. Well, the magazine must have finally heard our cries as it brings out the big guns for Issue #192 April 2018: a fierce Naomi Campbell to regain our attention. The original 90s supermodel gives us everything we need and more in the black and white Peter Lindbergh-shot cover.

Or does she? The cover ultimately left our forums divided. “Classic and beautiful, I simply cannot fault this! And for once the choice to go black and white actually works,” admired Benn98.

“Gorgeous,” wrote Miss Dalloway upon seeing the cover. (more…)

Adut Akech Is the First Woman of Color to Appear on the Cover of Vogue Italia in 18 Months

Your local newsstands are about to be a whole lot more diverse this month, with British Vogue leading the way and Vogue Italia following suit with its cover for April 2018. Following a bland and minimalist Remington Williams offering last month, Adut Akech becomes the magazine’s new cover girl (also currently on British Vogue‘s diversity cover), captured by photographic duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott. The Sudanese beauty, who continues to climb the ranks of the modeling world, is joined by Birgit Kos and Amandine Renard, who appear on the foldout pages of the cover, each wearing Chanel teamed with a pair of white Jimmy Choo boots. Adut is the first model of color to front the Italian fashion bible since Alicia Burke in November 2016.

Our forum members couldn’t wait to sound off on the cover. “Literally SCREAMED when I saw the title but this is a big meh. I was expecting something more over the top, when they’re at their best. But I’m happy for all of the girls. They deserved it,” credited helmutnotdead.

“I’m so happy for Adut! She is such a great girl, her beauty is astonishing. I wish the cover was better though,” added apple. (more…)

Is This the Best Town & Country Could Do With Cindy Crawford?

Town & Country doesn’t usually receive all that much buzz on our forums but with a cover subject like Cindy Crawford, the publication has our undivided attention this month. The original supermodel shows the industry and her model daughter Kaia Gerber that she’s still got it at 52 on T&C’s latest. Gone is the glitz, glamour and high-octane references to the 80s from Cindy’s recent covers of POP in favor of a more casual and laid-back look with Cindy effortless working the lens of photographer Victor Demarchelier on location along the sandy beaches of Malibu.

Unlike the covers of POP, our forum members weren’t all too impressed. “I don’t think the first cover (above) does her any justice, probably due to the styling which looks very cheap to me. The second shot (below) is definitely more of my taste,” voiced apple the second the covers came to light.

“On the second cover she looks like Caitlyn Jenner. I love the first one,” said matheus_s. (more…)

Zoe Kravitz Is All Smiles on InStyle’s Beautiful and Vibrant May Cover

You’re no doubt used to seeing Zoe Kravitz in a certain way on the covers of mainstream fashion glossies. ELLE went minimal with the American actress in January and British Vogue favored the grunge look last October. This month, InStyle decided to take the glamorous route for its May 2018 cover shoot, dressing the Saint Laurent brand ambassador in a show-stopping fuchsia Valentino Haute Couture creation in the newsstand cover (below), photographed by Anthony Maule.

“What a beautiful photoshoot! She’s glowing, that contagious smile on the main cover is certainly appealing,” added apple. (more…)

Karl Lagerfeld Photographs Luna Bijl for Two Covers of Vogue Germany May 2018

Taking advantage of Chanel’s Métiers d’Art collection shown in Hamburg back in December, Vogue Germany asked Karl Lagerfeld to photograph the collection for the May 2018 issue. The magazine (understandably) jumps on the Luna Bijl bandwagon this month and the Dutch beauty and firm favorite of Lagerfeld delivers once again. In the first cover, Luna wears a tux, sailor cap and holds a smoking pipe (below) and in the second, she becomes a fashionable fisherman in an oversized thick cable knit sweater, a string of pearls and a bold red lip (after the jump).

The two covers generated a mixture of feedback on our forums. “The fonts in the first cover are horrible but kind of work in the second cover. The first one should have been more classy like the pic, but ditch the pipe please. The model could have been anybody. If I have to choose it would be the second cover for sure,” noted Nymphaea.

“Overall I like the second cover more, but her face in the first cover looks better. I’m so happy that Luna is a bonafide Karl favorite,” mikel chimed in. (more…)

Not Even Karlie Kloss Can Save the Summer 2018 Cover of Porter

Once a firm forum favorite, Porter magazine seems to have lost some of its shine. Last month’s attempt at giving Natalie Portman a new look was declared a flop and it looks like the new cover for Summer 2018 may be headed for the same fate. Karlie Kloss returns to the front cover exactly three years after her last appearance. Photographed by Camilla Akrans and styled by Cathy Kasterine, the American model turned entrepreneur stars in the super closeup cover image while effortlessly pulling off a minimal makeup look.

Don’t count on our forum members rushing down to the newsstand. “Any recent covers of The Edit would make a more exciting cover than this. Karlie looks good but I feel like she can do better,” voiced TaylorBinque.

“I always enjoy Karlie in print but I can’t help but feel the shot is just too closeup?” pointed out honeycombchild. (more…)
