Nicolas Ghesquière and His Louis Vuitton Muses Appear on Vogue Japan’s June Cover

These days, fashion designers seem to crave the spotlight and regularly accompany their muses on the pages and covers of magazines. Riccardo Tisci has appeared on the cover of Vogue Japan, Karl Lagerfeld has fronted Vogue Paris, and now Nicolas Ghesquière makes an appearance on Vogue Japan’s June 2017 edition. Having already appeared on the cover of Vogue Brazil with Selena Gomez, the Louis Vuitton creative director now poses for Patrick Demarchelier alongside muses Rila Fukushima, Lea Seydoux, Jennifer Connelly and Michelle Williams (all wearing Vuitton, obvs).

Given the magazine’s recent wave of success, was this enough to satisfy our forum members? “I don’t know why but I’m such a sucker for designers and their clique on magazine covers. This is perfect! Although it does have more of a November/December vibe to it,” stated KateIsGr8 straight away.

“I’ll take this weird Louis Vuitton gang over that Balmain Army thing,” RedSmokeRise reasoned. (more…)

Karen Elson’s Cover of UK Harper’s Bazaar Looks Just Like Town & Country

British Harper’s Bazaar continues to eschew the usual celebrity suspects in favor of cover models — not that we’re complaining. After an ethereal Lindsey Wixson cover last month, Bazaar welcomes back model-turned-singer Karen Elson for its June 2017 cover story. Taking things outdoors (once again), Karen was captured by photographer Richard Phibbs as she roams the perfectly manicured gardens of a stately home.

The cover made exclusively for subscribers (above) was the first to surface, but is it time for the Bazaar team to head back indoors? “I’ve seen enough content of this magazine to know that every single reader must own a country estate somewhere posh,” critiqued Melancholybaby at once.

“The background looks fake, the foxes look edited on the image. The covers are starting to look all the same,” pointed out MON. (more…)

Teresa Palmer’s Vogue Australia Cover Is Too Cute for Words

Vogue Australia is starting to get back on the right track after receiving our forum’s seal of approval last month with its Karlie Kloss cover. Now, the magazine unveils yet another winner with May’s delightful and inviting cover. Australian actress Teresa Palmer appears alongside her two beautiful children while posing in the great outdoors for photographer Nicole Bentley.

Was it enough to win over our forums this month? “This is actually a lovely cover. I’m a sucker for family portraits done well. Summery, and the layout finally works on this one,” approved forum member MON straight after the cover broke.

“Lovely, Vogue Australia does outdoor cover shots so well — beautiful styling, nice use of blue font with the color scheme and their amazing eyes. Reminds me of how we might have seen Nicole Kidman styled when she had young children,” HeatherAnne applauded. (more…)

Karlie Kloss Earns Her Supermodel Status on InStyle’s Stunning New Cover

What can magazines do to impress our discerning forum members? Give them a model on the cover of their favorite fashion glossies. Major kudos goes to InStyle this month for this stunning cover featuring Karlie Kloss. Shot by Carter Smith, the all-American beauty shows off her top model status wearing metallic Bottega Veneta and giving us major hair envy. We’ll race you to the newsstand!

Our forum members loved what they saw. “Karlie looks stunning here! I never would’ve imagined her career would take such a massive turn. This styling and image is very suited to InStyle. They’ve redeemed themselves from last month’s trainwreck. I’m slowly warming to Laura’s idea of InStyle. Art direction could be better, but just continue to run more outdoor covers and I’d be happy,” commented Benn98.

“What a gorgeous cover, and so happy to see Karlie! Laura is very commercial, sometimes too much, but when it works, it works!” Miss Dalloway approved. (more…)

Mario Testino Photographs Kendall Jenner for Vogue India’s 10th Anniversary Cover

Our suspicion that Mario Testino was set to guest edit yet another international edition of Vogue became a reality overnight as Vogue India unveiled its May 2017 issue. Celebrating the magazine’s 10 years in print, this marks Testino’s twelfth time as Vogue guest editor. Kendall Jenner channels her inner Indian goddess on the cover, wearing Saint Laurent amid the luxurious surroundings of the Hotel Samode Palace in Jaipur. Round-trip tickets to India, anyone?

Our forum members started voicing their opinions as soon as the cover broke earlier today. “One word: EW!” exclaimed a horrified WilliamsLe010919.

“Looking dead as always, which is a shame because the styling, concept and photography are amazing. Should’ve chosen a different model, that’s for sure,” critiqued Style Savvy. (more…)

Priyanka Chopra’s Glamour Cover Is an Unflattering Mess

As the major fashion glossies begin to unveil their covers for June 2017, Glamour continues down a disappointing path. Following last month’s cover, which our forums called a waste of Kerry Washington, the U.S. glossy reveals an unflattering cover featuring Priyanka Chopra. The actress, who usually looks beautiful in print (her InStyle cover still being the one to beat), waves her arms above her head wearing an overpowering Marni top and a pair of Christian Dior boxer briefs (or, fashion-forward granny panties) in the cover image shot by Sebastian Kim.

Members of our forums couldn’t believe their eyes. “What is this mess?” asked a horrified madzedre the second the cover came to light.

“Disaster. Remember when Harper’s Bazaar used to do this handwritten text font? Unoriginal. And what an unflattering pose and expression. I’ve seen better Cosmo covers than this,” exclaimed MON. (more…)
