The Beckhams Pose for a Family Portrait on the Cover of British Vogue

Not even a year into his tenure at British Vogue and Edward Enninful has managed to tap everyone from Taylor Swift to Oprah, and last month made Rihanna the first black woman to appear on the title’s September cover. Enninful shows no signs of slowing down the exclusives, scoring most of the Beckham family (David Beckham is sadly absent from the newsstand cover) for the October 2018 issue. Victoria Beckham is no stranger to the magazine (this month’s cover marks her fifth appearance) and is now joined by her four children, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper Seven (plus Olive the dog), for a family portrait-style cover. Photographed by Mikael Jansson and styled by Kate Phelan, the world-famous family was shot on location in Donnington, England.

Our forum members weren’t exactly…sentimental over the cover. “This looks like a poor man’s Tommy Hilfiger ad. Where’s the fashion element? Did Edward decide to give them a free family portrait? If that’s the case, well, by all means, give one. But don’t let us the masses see it,” commented Ken Doll Jenner.

“Looks like the default picture in a photo frame that you throw away after buying it,” mocked bluebanter.

“LMAO! No one will convince me this isn’t a People magazine outtake. Absolute garbage, and I actually like Victoria. Edward did her dirty with this mess,” mepps wrote.

Lily-Rose Depp Is Both Angel and Devil on Vogue Korea’s September Covers

Over the years, Lily-Rose Depp has failed to impress our picky forum members on just about every major fashion magazine including British Vogue, Vogue Paris, Vogue JapanCR Fashion Book and, most recently, Vogue Russia. It’s now Vogue Korea’s turn to feature the Chanel brand ambassador on its September 2018 edition. The magazine has been riding a wave of success lately, winning us over with covers starring Luna Bijl and Grace Elizabeth, but its latest is a step backward. The Karl Lagerfeld favorite wears Chanel (natch) and plays the role of both devil (below) and angel (after the jump) on two covers, photographed by Paolo Roversi.

Members of our forums weren’t expecting much. “I can’t believe Lily keeps getting Vogue covers, let alone a September cover. Both covers are boring,” wrote gunsnroses.

“Why is she still getting covers?” asked anlabe32.

“This is disappointing for September,” agreed mathiaskatz.

Adut Akech Outshines Adesuwa Aighewi and Anok Yai on i-D Magazine’s Fall 2018 Covers

Our forums have a love/hate relationship with i-D Magazine and we went a whole year without being bothered with the magazine until a series of Spring 2018 covers blew us away — which were unfortunately followed by an unimpressive Kaia Gerber offering for Summer 2018. The publication now moves on to Fall 2018, adding another dash of diversity to the newsstand with Adut Akech, Adesuwa Aighewi and Anok Yai as its latest cover girls. In the trio of covers, Adut (below) was photographed by Campbell Addy, Adesuwa captured in black and white by Oliver Hadlee Pearch (below, left) while Ethan Green James shot Anok (below, right) for the third and final cover.

As per usual with multi-covers, there’s always one that stands out to our forum members. “I was hoping for an epic group shot when I saw the thread title. Love Adut’s cover! She is a treasure!” raved mikel, seconds after the covers all surfaced.

“These are all quite lovely covers but Adut’s one definitely stands out. It might just be the use of color, but the composition is also quite striking and works well,” Nomar chimed in.

“When Adut’s name turns up in a thread title, I’m right there. The other two girls don’t stand a chance against her cover shot,” said tigerrouge.

Jennifer Lawrence Looks Like a CGI Version of Herself in Christian Dior’s New Fragrance Campaign

You’re no doubt aware that Jennifer Lawrence is a brand ambassador for Christian Dior. Currently five years into her contract, the actress has fronted countless ready-to-wear advertising campaigns and wears the brand head-to-toe for various red carpet events.  Now, Jennifer becomes the face of Dior’s first pillar fragrance in 20 years, Dior Joy. In the captivating campaign image, J.Law was photographed on location at a hilltop house in Los Angeles by Jean-Baptise Mondino and emerges from the pool looking like a goddess…or does she?

Unfortunately, the campaign failed to captivate our unfiltered forum members. “Very plastic…” pointed out kokobombon the moment the campaign struck.

“By the look of it, she’s bathing in liquid silicone,” tigerrouge echoed.

“Why did they even bother to book a human as a model and not just hire an avatar designer if this was what they were going for?” asked June.

Nina Ricci and Hervé Léger Announce New Creative Directors

The illusion of light #HerveLeger

A post shared by Hervé Léger (@herveleger) on

Haute couture house Nina Ricci and pioneer of the bodycon dress Hervé Léger have just announced new creative directors. Rushemy Botter and Lisi Herrebrugh will be designing for Nina Ricci and Christian Juuls Nielsen is the new creative head for Hervé Léger, all of whom are reportedly already busy on their debut collections for their respective brands.

Botter and Herrebrugh have been in the fashion scene for a while now, having already worked together on their own brand Botter, which won the Grand Prize for Festival d’Hyères, the Dries van Noten Award, the BVBA32 Ann Demeulemeester Award, as well as a finalist spot in the 2018 LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers. Their appointment as creative directors for Nina Ricci is rather interesting as Botter’s and Nina Ricci’s design aesthetics seem to be polar opposites.

“Their universe expresses a passionate force, a sincerity and an extraordinary boldness deeply rooted in their time,” Nina Ricci’s general manager Charlotte Tassette said in a press release. “Mixed with the natural sweetness and poetry present in their vision, this unique creative spirit will give birth to a new Nina Ricci woman.”

The designers “aim to create a new spirit, a spirit of our times: effortless, sophisticated and strong” for the brand, they said in a statement. Botter and Herrebrugh’s debut collection will be for Pre-Fall 2019 and we can’t wait to see what they’ll bring to the label.

As for Nielsen, while he may not be a familiar name in the industry, he has worked with prestigious designers in the past. Coincidentally, his career started with Nina Ricci back in 2003 where he designed for more than three years, according to his LinkedIn profile. He then became a senior designer at Christian Dior, a design director at Oscar de la Renta and a consulting design director at J. Mendel. Nielsen has also been the creative director for Land of Distraction, a contemporary women’s wear label, since November 2016. It is assumed that he will work on both brands as their creative director.

According to WWD, Nielson has been working on his first collection for Hervé Léger this summer, with plans to present next month at New York Fashion Week.

Jordan Barrett Turns Photographer for Emily Ratajkowski’s Cover of Paper Magazine

Paper has gone from breaking the internet in 2014 to subtle and demure in 2018, and the magazine’s offering for fall shows no signs of reverting back. Along with Marie Claire and ELLE Australia, Paper jumps on the Emily Ratajkowski bandwagon, giving the cover of the fall fashion issue to the American model/actress and Kérastase brand ambassador. Instead of hiring a seasoned fashion photographer for the shoot, Paper enlisted Jordan Barrett (yes, the Aussie male model) to photograph Emily on location at The Bowery Hotel in New York City. Giving us modern-day Jackie Kennedy vibes, Emily sports a bobbed hairstyle, nude lips and red Valentino in the cover shot.

Our forum members are going to skip this issue, though. “So, Jordan Barrett is branching out to photography now?” asked amby upon checking out the cover.

“God, this magazine is such a joke! They were somewhat irrelevant until that infamous Kim K cover, and, despite the press and support they got from it, never quite managed to live up to the newfound hype. To go with the lesser of the Insta influencers shot by an equally lesser male model?” Benn98 asked.

“There are tons of struggling, yet insanely talented, photographers out there and this magazine gives Jordan Barrett the chance to shoot the cover. Unnecessary, uneventful, lazy, and unimaginative,” slated MON.
