Reese Witherspoon Is Overpowered by ‘Disgusting’ Layout on InStyle’s December Cover (Forum Buzz)

Laura Brown, the new Editor-in-Chief of InStyle, has already begun to put her stamp on the title. Her vision first became apparent with the November issue featuring Emily Blunt and is even more evident on the newly unveiled December cover. Actress Reese Witherspoon oozes Old Hollywood glamour wearing a black one-shoulder Giorgio Armani gown in the festive cover image shot by Thomas Whiteside.

However, our forum members simply weren’t feeling it. “She looks gorgeous, but the layout went from 99% to 15% real quick. Horrible layout,” slated a far from impressed MON the second the cover came to light.

“Reese looks better than expected, but I find the excess jewels very tacky. Also not a fan of Laura’s redesign, it’s too much! One could actually see the clothes on this year’s covers, looks like she’s doing away with that as well,” pointed out Benn98. (more…)

Gwen Stefani Looks ‘Plastic Fantastic’ on Glamour’s Overdone December Cover (Forum Buzz)

It’s official: Glamour is back on the descent into mediocrity. We were willing to overlook the mess it served with Demi Lovato last month, but the downward spiral continues with its newest offering. Gwen Stefani (who we’ve practically just seen on Harper’s Bazaar) closes out the year in an underwhelming fashion, flashing a huge white smile in the December cover shot by Miguel Reveriego.

Members of our forums were in shock. “She looks more and more plastic, what a shame,” exclaimed a horrified KateTheGreatest the second the cover came to light.

“I’ve come to accept that the current incarnation of Gwen Stefani is plastic fantastic,” tigerrouge chimed in. (more…)

Adele Stars on Vanity Fair’s Serene and Stunning Cover for December (Forum Buzz)

Our forums have always been partial to Adele magazine covers. She has stunned on the cover of Vogue a handful of times, served great face on the cover of i-D Magazine and now makes her debut on Vanity Fair. Closing out the year on a high, the songstress looks gorgeous in the cover photo by Tom Munro for the title’s December 2016 offering. In the classically beautiful portrait, Adele sports a voluminous blowout and an envy-inducing signature makeup look.

Unfortunately, the majority of our forum members weren’t feeling it all that much. “Awkward,” described zzzyao76 the second the cover surfaced.

“I don’t like it. The makeup and layout looks sloppy, and the styling is super boring IMO,” said a deflated kokobombon. (more…)

Jessica Chastain and Photographer Willy Vanderperre Take Prada in an Exciting New Direction for the Resort 2017 Campaign (Forum Buzz)

We’ve become so used to Steven Meisel photographing Prada’s advertising campaigns that you could’ve knocked us over with a feather when Willy Vanderperre was unveiled as Miuccia Prada’s latest lensman. Not to mention throwing in an actress as the face of the brand’s new Resort 2017 campaign. Jessica Chastain stars in the newly-unveiled campaign looking gorgeous as she wanders around the city of Milan in a series of cinematic images.

Our forum members couldn’t contain their excitement. “OMG Jessica for Prada!!!! My dream came true!” heralded a delighted zzzyao76 the second the campaign dropped.

“This is so unexpected but I love it. The styling and photography are great but also the sets and Jessica bring something unique,” added kokobombon. (more…)

Lily-Rose Depp Takes a Post-Party Repose on Her First Cover of UK Vogue (Forum Buzz)

It’s hard to believe that 2016 is coming to an end (at least in the world of magazines) with the December issues already being unveiled. First came Gigi Hadid‘s ultra-glamorous Vogue Japan cover and now British Vogue unveils its festive offering to close out the year. Giving Lily-Rose Depp the honors, UK Vogue‘s latest marks the girl-of-the-moment’s debut as a Vogue cover subject and she certainly proves her worth in the enchanting shot. Photographed by Bruce Weber, the Chanel ambassador unsurprisingly wears the French label as she reclines on a plush sofa, looking a little partied out from the festivities.

Not all of our forum members were in the mood for partying, however. “I feel I might be the only one but I really like this cover. I like the vibe of it. She looks like a princess. Great styling and colors,” approved Oxymore the second the cover dropped over the weekend.

“It’s quite a festive cover so kudos for that,” said anlabe32. (more…)

Is Victoria’s Secret Making a Statement With This Unretouched Photo?

This Thursday, Victoria’s Secret released photos of model Jasmine Tookes wearing this year’s Bright Night Fantasy Bra. In some ways, the behind-the-scenes shots look a lot like the VS ads we know and…feel ambivalent towards. Yet again, a beautiful straight-sized model perches on a tufted couch in ornate underwear we can’t imagine tolerating for over five minutes, tousling her relaxed hair.

In other ways, the photo — and its significance — takes our breath away. For one, Tookes is the first black model to wear the Fantasy Bra (here, and on the upcoming Victoria’s Secret runway) in nine years. Then, there’s the Eddie Borgo-designed, jewel-encrusted contraption itself, which is worth $3 million and took nearly 700 hours to make. And do our eyes deceive us, or are those unretouched stretch marks on Tookes’ perfectly muscled derrière? (more…)
