Glamour’s Latest Kerry Washington Cover Is a Real Nail-Biter

Glamour can’t seem to catch a break on our forums lately. Members often complain about the glossy’s overdone and over-styled covers and it seems like the trend continues for May 2017. Making a return exactly two years after her last appearance, actress Kerry Washington wears a floor-length Valentino dress in the latest installment. There’s a lot to digest in this Steven Pan-shot cover.

Our forums were quick to critique the cover. “Sigh, this had so much potential. Nice to see Kerry, but some cropping was needed. And the styling is too dark for summer. The art direction, which looks like those Instagram tags which pop up on pictures, is a bad idea. Don’t want to sound jaded, but every US Glamour cover this year used activism as a marketing tool. Whether it’s working or not, I don’t know, but each time I lose more respect for them,” said Benn98. (more…)

Vogue Turkey’s April Cover Is a ‘Waste of Two Top Models’

According to our discerning forum members, Vogue Turkey doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to creating groundbreaking covers, despite the odd hit from time to time (Kendall Jenner‘s cover from 2016 still fresh in our mind). This month, the magazine adds another “miss” to its portfolio with an awkward and somewhat uncomfortable April 2017 cover. Model Lexi Boling (who usually photographs like a dream for Steven Meisel) is joined by Jordan Barrett, coupling up as they lounge around a luxurious hotel room for photographer Sebastian Faena.

Forum members flocked to the thread to voice their dismay. “Not exactly a cover-worthy image, looks more like an editorial preview to me. Poor Lexi, her non-Meisel covers never seem to impress me. And now she’s being outshined by Jordan Barret of all people,” critiqued Benn98.

“A non-Meisel shot of Lexi usually fails unfortunately. Awkward cover!” echoed Vitamine W. (more…)

Bella Hadid Looks Like JLo on the New Cover of The Sunday Times Style

Our forums don’t usually take notice of The Sunday Times Style but with a cover subject like Bella Hadid, it’s hard to resist. Sure to generate a few headlines by tapping one of fashion’s most in-demand of faces, Bella fronts the largest-selling British newspaper’s Style supplement this week. Shot by photographer Jem Mitchell, Porter’s current cover girl looks effortless and casual on the cover.

“She looks less and less like Carla Bruni and more and more like Melania Trump. Scary. I actually had high hopes for her,” pointed out forum member EstefaniaAbaddon the moment the cover dropped.

“The cover feels very Jennifer Lopez, although Bella is not as striking,” voiced an underwhelmed A.D.C. (more…)

A Radiant Kate Upton Stars on Vogue Thailand’s Summery Cover for April 2017

After last month’s gorgeous Lily Aldridge cover, Vogue Thailand is officially back on our radar. For April 2017, the magazine taps Kate Upton, who hasn’t been on the fashion magazine cover circuit for what feels like an eternity. Photographed by Yu Tsai, the blonde all-American beauty flaunts her legendary curves wearing Miu Miu in the bright and beautiful waterside cover shot.

Lindsey Wixson’s UK Harper’s Bazaar Cover Is a Work of Art

Models are having a moment over at the UK edition of Harper’s Bazaar. In January, the mag gave us Nastya Sten, in March it was Sam Rollinson, and now Lindsey Wixson appears on the front of the May 2017 issue. Our forums took an exclusive first look at the limited cover for subscribers earlier this week and instantly fell in love. Photographed by Bazaar-regular Erik Madigan Heck, Lindsey captivates in the delightful shot (wearing Christian Dior styled by the magazine’s own Leith Clark) which resembles a gorgeous piece of Renaissance art.

Members of our forum flocked to the thread to give the cover some love. “Amazing cover, Bazaar UK rules!” commented RegardezMag upon seeing the cover.

“Stunning! Definitely something I’m looking forward to getting. I’m a tremendous fan of Erik’s work, and he truly delivered here. Also, love that Harper’s Bazaar is not going for the usual suspects when it comes to models (Kate, Cara, Georgia, etc). It’s all about the theme, not the model,” applauded a delighted Benn98.
