After 10 Years, Kate Moss Returns as the Face of Saint Laurent

Who remembers the spectacular Kate Moss campaign for Yves Saint Laurent’s Spring 2008 collection where she peered through the doors of the YSL museum in Paris? We sure do. Now, 10 years later, the legendary British supermodel is back fronting a campaign for the brand. The reunion is hardly a surprise, since Kate is the perfect embodiment of Vaccarello’s new rock ‘n’ roll, Parisian-chic Saint Laurent aesthetic. Photographed in the studio against a stark white backdrop with some heavy lighting, Kate is instantly recognizable in the black and white campaign images.

Unfortunately, the campaign failed to excite our forum members. “She’s not delivering it IMO, looks random and reminds me of Pamela Anderson in a way,” voiced forum member Nymphaea upon seeing the photos.

“Booooring… neeext,” snoozed KissMiss. (more…)

Imaan Hammam Cements Her Cover Girl Status on Two Flawless Covers for Porter Winter 2017

There’s no doubt that 2017 has been Imaan Hammam’s breakout year. She has managed to amass a total of nine Vogue covers throughout the year (most recently starring alongside Pharrell Williams on U.S. Vogue‘s special cover for December) and secured a cover of Porter with Doutzen Kroes back in May. It’s no surprise that Porter has invited the 21-year-old Dutch beauty for a return engagement, starring on two covers for the Winter Escape issue photographed by Camilla Akrans. Imaan captivates in a striped off-the-shoulder Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini top on the newsstand cover (below) and poses for a flawless close-up on the subscriber cover (after the jump).

“Imaan is really one-of-a-kind. Shining like no other. Wonderful covers,” admired Valentine27. (more…)

Joan Smalls Just Landed Her First Fragrance Campaign, for Moschino Fresh Couture Gold

Whether it’s the current Fall 2017 fashion campaign starring the likes of Slick Woods or Linda Evangelista peddling Moschino’s Fresh Couture fragrance, photographer Steven Meisel has helped propel Jeremy Scott’s vision for Moschino to a new level. Unfortunately, Meisel’s presence is sorely missed with the unveiling of the brand’s new Fresh Couture Gold fragrance campaign shot by Giampaolo Sgura. Model Joan Smalls fronts the ads (marking her first fragrance campaign ever) wearing an OTT Moschino look while clutching an oversized bottle of the scent.

Our forum members weren’t too impressed with the campaign. “It looks as cheap as I expected after reading the title,” snarled anlabe32 upon checking out the campaign images.

“Dry and boring! I don’t see the point of doing a Carlyne [Cerf de Dudzeele] & Meisel inspired thing without Carlyne and Meisel themselves,” stated Lola701. (more…)

Lily-Rose Depp Lacks Presence on Vogue Japan’s Bland January 2018 Cover

Vogue Japan’s offerings throughout 2017 were pretty solid (despite a few mishaps here and there) and the magazine now readies us for the new year with the first issue of 2018, starring Lily-Rose Depp. From her advertising campaigns to cover appearances on the likes of Vanity Fair France and CR Fashion Book, our forums have had a love/hate relationship with the actress-slash-Chanel-brand-ambassador. Currently wearing (you guessed it) Chanel in the bland new cover of Japanese Vogue shot by Peter Lindbergh, Lily’s latest isn’t enough to win over tFS forum members.

Forum members, once again, complained about Lily’s lack of presence. “I like the black background, it’s a throwback to the mid-2000s. Unfortunately, the background is all I like. Lily is very dull in print. Nothing against her personally, but people should really stop forcing her on us,” GivenchyHomme stated the moment the cover struck.

“Is she supposed to look dead on purpose?” asked a dumbfounded Growl. (more…)

Luna Bijl’s Stars on Vogue Spain’s ‘Passable’ Cover for December 2017

Our forum members are still in awe over Vogue Spain’s flawless November cover starring the always stunning Raquel Zimmermann — that is, until the newly unveiled December 2017 issue arrived for us to deliberate over. The magazine continues to favor models as Dutch beauty Luna Bijl closes out the year on this month’s cover. A firm favorite over at Vogue Paris and the current face of Chanel eyewear, Luna was photographed by Nathaniel Goldberg for Spanish Vogue‘s latest, modeling a striking creation from Jean Paul Gaultier.

“This cover does not say anything. Vogue Spain has lost its identity MANY years ago, there’s no message nor clear directions with their cover subjects and compositions, it feels bland. Luna looks gorgeous but as a cover, it’s a fail,” declared Bertrando3 the moment the cover struck.

“I don’t hate it, but I don’t love it either. Luna has done better with her VP covers,” said gianna. (more…)
