Lena Dunham and the Cast of Girls Pose for Glamour’s Photoshop-Free February Cover

We’re all for magazines abandoning the use of Photoshop and major kudos goes to Glamour this month for opting to use an unretouched shot of the cast of Girls for its February edition. Photographed by Emma Summerton, actresses Allison Williams, Zosia Mamet, Lena Dunham and Jamima Kirke come together for the entirely women-produced issue, wearing Marc Jacobs’ bold new collection.

The magazine still can’t catch a break from the majority of our forum members. “Holy sh*t that’s bad,” declared a horrified dodencebt the second the cover came to light.

“Ugh, this is so bad and I feel like this cover is dated by putting them on the cover. Girls hasn’t been a hot show since its second season! And Lena Dunham – I can’t stand her so what so ever! NEXT!” added a far from interested RanThe. (more…)

“This would have been more appropriate for December. It looks cheap for Vogue, not high-fashion. The girls look good tho,” acknowledged forum member Nymphaea the moment the cover struck.

“Imaan is stealing the spotlight for me. She’s all I can see between the three,” described dodencebt, setting the tone for commentary to follow. (more…)

Gwyneth Paltrow Is Pretty in Pink on InStyle’s Fresh February Cover

Our forums were quick to voice their displeasure with Laura Brown’s debut covers as editor-in-chief of InStyle. Perhaps Brown just needed a little time to let her bold new direction take shape for the magazine. Newsstand regular Gwyneth Paltrow appears on InStyle‘s fresh and airy February issue, looking fantastic in Fendi, shot by photographer Greg Kadel.

A few of our forum members were quick to show the cover some love. “Gorgeous cover, finally something more in the vein that Ariel [Foxman] would have done! Paltrow, just might be the best celeb cover star!” rejoiced Miss Dalloway the moment the cover dropped.

“I really like it. So light and airy. That pink and blue should be tired, but it looks lovely here. And somehow, I don’t mind seeing Gwyneth,” MyNameIs admitted. (more…)

Bella Hadid Replaces Kendall Jenner as the Face of Fendi for Spring 2017

After starring in Fendi campaigns for multiple seasons, Kendall Jenner has been replaced by BFF Bella Hadid as the face of the brand. Karl Lagerfeld is the latest industry heavyweight to embrace the younger Hadid sister by casting her solo for Fendi’s new Spring 2017 campaign. As our forums take a look at the first campaign image, Bella can be found in a room that’s in desperate need of some TLC while wearing a floral dress and clutching a Fendi Peekaboo handbag.

Forum members were left pleasantly surprised by the outcome. “Nice to see Karl Lagerfeld shying away from using Kendall Jenner for Fendi, and while Bella Hadid wouldn’t be everyone’s choice of replacement, I have to admit that Bella looks perfectly suited to me and I do like what I’m seeing here,” confessed vogue28.

“Ciao Bella! I really really like it. I actually think the matching dress and wallpaper is what makes it extra special,” pointed out gazebo. (more…)

Vogue Japan’s February Cover Features a Bevy of Rising Top Models

In 2016, the majority of our favorite fashion glossies seemed to shy away from multi-girl covers, but Vogue Japan reignites the trend with its February 2017 cover. The Japanese title is off to a terrific start for the new year, having given us exactly what we needed with January’s cover featuring Anna Ewers. Now, photographic duo Luigi & Iango captures a host of the industry’s rising stars including Odette Pavlova, Agnes Akerlund, Vittoria Ceretti, Ruth Bell, Yasmin Wijnaldum and Faretta, all decked out wearing head-to-toe Christian Dior.

“They look too miserable,” pointed out blueorchid the second the cover dropped.

“It almost looks like it was deliberate! This should only have been Vittoria, far too many girls for this cover. Yasmin looks the worst, like a corpse. And while it’s a nice coup for Dior, I don’t think the styling does the clothes any justice,” replied Benn98. (more…)

Bella Hadid Returns to the Cover of W Korea for January 2017

It’s safe to declare W Korea had a successful 2016, having served up some pretty fantastic covers with It girls Kendall Jenner, Karlie Kloss and Bella Hadid over the past twelve months. Now, in a move that shouldn’t surprise anyone, Korean W welcomes back Bella Hadid on its first cover of the year (exactly one month after sister Gigi gave Gisele Bündchen a run for her money). Opting to use a reprint for the January 2017 cover (usually a huge forum no-no), the Korean title ultimately makes good use of a haute couture fashion shoot from its American counterpart’s recent October issue, photographed by Venetia Scott.

The majority of our forum members actually liked what they saw. “A good choice of a reprint if you ask me. When the editorial first appeared in American W, I wasn’t all too impressed but I admire how W Korea have made this shot of Bella work in their favor with the layout, fonts and their choice of complementing colors. Those shades of blue are perfect for an icy January cover!” complemented vogue28.

“This shot actually works as a cover for me. It’s got that effortless mood, and her face isn’t perfection, for once. Love the colors. The editor really must love these Hadids,” Benn98 pointed out. (more…)
