Amber Valletta Delivers Two Old-School Covers for Harper’s Bazaar Spain

If there’s one thing about our forums, they just love to see the resurgence of 90s supermodels (aside from Claudia Schiffer‘s disaster of a September cover for Vogue Germany). So it should come as no surprise that the forums are buzzing about Amber Valletta fronting the October 2017 edition of Harper’s Bazaar Spain. Now that Editor-in-Chief Yolanda Sacristan has settled in, each issue has been stronger than the last (though we’re still in love with the Adriana Lima cover from July) and with Greg Kadel capturing Amber for two covers, Bazaar is hoping to earn another win. The regular newsstand cover (below) features Amber wearing a velvet green Dolce & Gabbana pantsuit while she works a sexier Saint Laurent number on the cover for subscribers (after the jump).

“I’m so buying this,” said a delighted Wintergreen upon seeing the cover.

“Really cool cover,” added forum member liaa. (more…)

Imaan Hammam Slays Her Eighth Cover of Vogue This Year, for Vogue Netherlands’ October Issue

Given her impressive track record delivering strong and compelling Vogue covers, our forums have become quite used to seeing Imaan Hammam bring her A-game to the prestigious publication. After a gorgeous Vogue Spain cover back in July, the Dutch stunner of Egyptian and Moroccan descent turns up on Vogue Netherlands’ new installment for October 2017 (making this Imaan’s eighth Vogue cover this year, so far). Photographed by Alique, Imaan captivates in the dazzling portrait cover image, working a look from Chanel.

Members of our forums were quick to comment on Imaan’s latest. “The shot on its own is impressive, no doubt helped by an expert team and Chanel. This is a plus for them. Art direction, however, could be much better,” stated Benn98 at once.

“Love it! The layout is not good, but the image totally makes up for it. So very Vogue!” championed gazebo. (more…)

Lorde Photographs Like a Model on Vogue Australia’s October Cover

After a total overhaul for September, complete with a modified format, bolder font choices and minimal text on the front cover, Australian Vogue continues to embrace its newfound confidence. Following Bella Hadid and Jordan Barrett‘s appearance, Lorde stars on the new cover for October 2017. Photographed in Sydney, the singer returns to Aussie Vogue after her triumphant July 2015 cover, for a dreamy and delightful shoot by Nicole Bentley.

Our forum members were divided over Vogue Australia’s latest. “It leaves me cold! The layout still looks amateur,” complained forum member MON the moment the cover came to light.

“The image is great but that layout still looks amateurish,” echoed Style Savvy. (more…)

Cara Delevingne Makes Her Vogue Paris Debut With a Simple, Chic October Cover

For the September issue of Vogue Paris, we half expected to see a “model turned actress” on the cover after receiving a tidbit in our Cover Rumor Thread, but instead we got Edie Campbell. The rumors are now confirmed in the form of the magazine’s October 2017 edition and it is indeed Cara Delevingne who stars on the French fashion bible’s newest offering. Cara often shuns the world of fashion while in the midst of shooting a movie but occasionally reappears to remind us of her existence. It was worth the wait for this simple, chic cover of Vogue Paris — her first for the French magazine — photographed by David Sims.

“The cover shot is fabulous! Simple, chic, and very Parisienne,” admired MON. (more…)

Kim Kardashian’s New Allure Cover Might Be Her Most Daring Yet

Following up cover appearances for both Interview and Harper’s Bazaar Arabia in September, Kim Kardashian West now stars on the recently unveiled cover of Allure, as you’ve never seen her before. Marking her third appearance for the beauty mag, including covers back in 2010 and 2012, the beauty entrepreneur appropriately fronts the ‘Best of Beauty’ issue for October 2017. Kim poses for an unconventional cover story photographed by Daniel Jackson, capped off with a mega close-up cover image, which makes a rather bold statement.

Or does it? Members of our forum weren’t so sold on the image. “Kim is like the Instagirls of pop culture. Just when you think she’s gone for good, out she comes with a slew of covers. It’s very conceptual for Allure, perhaps too ambitious. Like something Kanye would do if he had his own magazine. This will be a tough sell on the newsstand. I don’t see ‘beauty’ in any sense here,” critiqued Benn98.

“I get the concept, but the execution of it turns Kim into a cross-eyed criminal as caught on CCTV. In fact, I’d be pushed to recall a more badly cropped cover shot in all my decades of buying magazines,” voiced tigerrouge. (more…)

Rooney Mara’s Weak Vogue Cover Looks More Like an Outtake

We’re still leafing through Vogue‘s 770+ page September issue and the magazine is already moving on with the unveiling of its October 2017 cover. Four covers featuring Jennifer Lawrence is a tough act to follow but Vogue welcomes back Rooney Mara as its latest cover girl. Sticking with Annie Leibovitz for yet another month, the American actress was photographed on location at the Antony Woodland Garden in Cornwell, England (British Harper’s Bazaar much?). Complete with styling from Tonne Goodman, the team serve up a picturesque and tranquil cover story with Rooney wearing Valentino in the cover image (below).

Right from the start, our forum members weren’t feeling it. “This cover must have been last minute decision! This is not something Anna would pick. And what’s up with two consecutive covers with flowering dresses, and the cover star not facing the camera? Tragic. Unforgettable Fall? More like forgettable cover,” slammed MON.

“Looks like a backstage shot,” pointed out mikel. (more…)
