Gwyneth Paltrow May Have Just Delivered Her Best Cover Ever

Our forums almost universally panned Porter’s current offering featuring models Doutzen Kroes and Imaan Hammam in the wilderness of Africa. The Edit, Net-a-Porter’s weekly digital magazine, however, is getting rave reviews this week with cover girl Gwyneth Paltrow. Photographed at the beach byChris Colls, Gwyneth pulls off the casual summer vibe with effortless ease. (Side note: actual skin texture is visible in the cover photo!)

“Gwyneth looks exceptional here. She just gets better with age. And it really doesn’t appear like she’s had any work done, which is an absolute rarity amongst her peers,” credited forum member happycanadian after checking out the shoot.

“The cover for the Gwyneth editorial is actually the best I’ve seen of her in a long time. She looks her age but also very natural and attractive. Chris Colls is very talented,” added an elated 333101. (more…)

Doutzen Kroes and Imaan Hammam Pose for Porter’s ‘Cliché African Safari Photo Shoot’

Ever since the premiere issue back in 2014, our forums have been huge supporters of Porter. The magazine has delivered the goods with virtually every issue, quickly becoming one of our favorites. Until now, that is. The publication powered by Net-a-Porter just unveiled its Summer Escape 2017 installment, leaving our forums rather unimpressed. Models Doutzen Kroes and Imaan Hammam pose together for Vincent van de Wijngaard on location in Kenya at the Save the Elephants operation nerve center.

“Travel on a budget? Because this looks cheap,” said forum member phungnam96 the moment the covers were revealed.

“Cheap, depressing/dull and completely unoriginal. Is there only one way to style models when in the African safari?” complained t-rex. (more…)

Nicole Kidman Fronts InStyle’s July Cover

Whether she’s fronting Vogue Australia, bringing the drama on UK Harper’s Bazaar or captivating on the cover of Interview, we’re definitely fans of a good Nicole Kidman cover appearance. The Aussie actress now fronts the cover of InStyle for July 2017, joining Laura Brown’s list of cover conquests as she continues to make her mark at the newsstand.

Most of our forum members were fans of Nicole’s latest cover. “Nicole is looking a little stiff on the cover. I think it has to do a lot with the abilities of her facial muscles and the type of photography and light. Something softer and less artificial would have done wonders in my opinion,” critiqued forum member dodencebt.

“The cover photo is a little stiff, but I love Nicole and am happy to see her after months of bad or so-so cover stars for InStyle. She’s a genuine movie star,” added SallyAlbright. (more…)
