The Unstoppable Gigi Hadid Lands Her Second British Vogue Cover

Should we really be surprised to see Gigi Hadid on yet another magazine cover? Last year’s international model of the year is off to a successful start for 2017, having already landed major campaigns for Stuart Weitzman, DSquared2, Fendi, Max Mara and Moschino this season — not to mention the launch of her newest collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger. Therefore, we were hardly shocked when Gigi was unveiled as British Vogue‘s cover girl for March 2017, marking her second appearance on the magazine. Shot by Mario Testino, Gigi does her best bronzed goddess in the summery image, wearing a turquoise dress. She’s joined by brother Anwar Hadid in the accompanying cover story.

The cover left our forum members pleasantly surprised. “I don’t mind this cover at all. Actually, she’s doing some modeling here. But I feel like the editorial is going to be ruined by Anwar because that boy doesn’t look like a model and cannot model either. But the vibe of the cover is sort of a nice change from Vogue UK for once,” wrote TaylorBinque.

“I really like this cover. The pose, the dress, the colors — it works well for me,” noted Oxymore. (more…)

With the Launch of DKNY’s Spring Campaign, tFS Forum Members Are Suffering From Bella Hadid Fatigue

It’s impossible to hide from the Hadid sisters this season, as the photogenic siblings continue to score high-profile editorials and ad campaigns. Currently, Bella Hadid is the face of Moschino, Fendi, Zadig & Voltaire and has now been crowned the new face of DKNY for Spring 2017. Photographed by Collier Schorr, Bella stormed the streets of New York City for the shoot, which resulted in a series of vibrant, colorful and intimate photos that are quintessentially DKNY.

Surprisingly, our forum members weren’t too impressed. “I’m bored by Bella. She has such a great model look—a better one than Gigi actually. Still, she’s giving one facial expression and it’s the same as all her Instagram selfies,” ranted an unforgiving TaylorBinque.

“She had four campaigns this season and the only one that was good was Moschino! The other 3 were bad including this one,” added Zposen. (more…)

Kendall Jenner Turns Photographer, Shooting 17 Covers for Love Magazine’s Spring Issue

From Marc Jacobs campaigns to covers of Love Magazine, Katie Grand has been a strong supporter of Kendall Jenner’s modeling career. Continuing the love-fest (get it?), Grand has enlisted the current face of La Perla to work behind the scenes to photograph several covers for Love‘s upcoming Spring 2017 issue. Following an open casting call via Instagram last year, Grand and Jenner have selected seventeen of their favorites, who’ve each been awarded a solo cover appearance.

Undeniably a nice start to 2017 for the winners, but our forum members won’t be buying a copy. “Behind the camera as well as in front of it now. God help us all,” snarled honeycombchild, disapproving of Kendall’s latest gig straight away.

“Stay behind the camera please and thank you. Perhaps she’ll retire from modeling and take up photography full time. One can dream right?” asked GivenchyHomme. (more…)

It’s that time of year again: Vanity Fair‘s annual Hollywood Issue has landed. Once again captured by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, the 2017 issue celebrates actresses Amy Adams, Natalie Portman, Lupita Nyong’o, Emma Stone, Ruth Negga, Dakota Fanning, Elle Fanning, Aja Naomi King, Dakota Johnson, Greta Gerwig and Janelle Monae. The wonderfully diverse cast of women pose together for a three-page cover reminiscent of the golden age of Hollywood.

Naturally, the cover became the topic of immediate discussion on our forums. “That’s a lot of good-looking women looking bad (or bored). And it feels like Amy Adams is always on the cover. Not that I’m complaining, but it seems VF really likes to support her,” stated tigerrouge.

Also not exactly thrilled was Miss Dalloway: “I’m so sick of Lupita in all of these things!! She is not even part of the award buzz this season, and besides she had her moment, why not let someone else get theirs! How shameful that Ruth is on the fold out, and Lupita is on the front of the cover — same for Adam’s actually! Also no Viola, again? Ridiculous! The styling is just awful, these are such a unappealing dresses!” (more…)
