Everyone Is Freaking Out Over Kylie Jenner’s Cover of Love Magazine (and Not in a Good Way)

Despite being a biannual publication, Love Magazine certainly keeps us on our toes between issues. The magazine’s annual LOVE advent featuring the likes of Hannah Ferguson, Hari Nef, Joan Smalls and Gigi Hadid continues through mid-January and last week, the magazine promoted the upcoming Spring/Summer 2018 edition with a cover tease featuring Kylie Jenner, shot by sister Kendall. No stranger to Love and a favorite of editor-in-chief Katie Grand, Kendall Jenner has appeared on the cover a handful of times and even shot 17 covers for the Spring 2017 edition. Back in the role of photographer, Kendall captures Kylie in a sweet sisterly moment for Love‘s latest. Mario Testino, who?

Members of our forums felt trolled by the whole situation and weren’t impressed. “Kylie by Kendall? Please stop Katie [Grand], you’re out of touch. These people are so yesterday,” complained anlabe32 upon seeing the cover.

“I usually defend Love with a burning passion but what the hell is this?” asked a horrified russianelf. (more…)

The New Gucci Campaign Is Everything Fashion Dreams Are Made Of

Leave it up to Alessandro Michele to push the boundaries (once again) as Gucci unveils its spectacular new advertising campaign for Spring 2018. Making a disappearing act is photographer Glen Luchford who has captured Michele’s flamboyant aesthetic since day one, as the work of surreal Spanish artist and illustrator Ignasi Monreal takes center stage this season. Monreal produced Gucci’s ‘Gift Giving’ campaign and now cements his relationship with the legendary Italian fashion house with yet another campaign. Titled Utopian Fantasy, the images are based on some of the most iconic fairytales and feature multiple hidden references.

“I won’t lie, this is gorgeous,” admitted dodencebt. (more…)

Gisele Bündchen Looks Fresh From 1998 on Vogue Japan’s February 2018 Cover

Is Gisele Bündchen set for a comeback in 2018? She was just unveiled as one of the faces of Versace’s new campaign, posing alongside fellow supermodels, and is now Vogue Japan’s cover girl for February 2018. We needed a little “Queen Gisele” after the magazine’s dull Lily-Rose Depp cover last month. Showing everyone how it’s truly done, Gisele works her effortless magic in the newsstand cover (below), photographed by Luigi & Iango. Gisele was styled by Patrick Mackie for the occasion and wears a bejeweled Christian Dior bodysuit (which might look familiar next to this at the newsstand).

Despite the gorgeous newsstand cover, our forum members were intrigued by something else. “Wow, that second cover (below) is a radical departure from what Vogue Japan typically offers. She looks beautiful there, too! I love them both – but of course, I am a massive Gisele fan and so am probably biased to some degree. It’s wonderful seeing her each time,” raved happycanadian.

“I absolutely love it! Both shots are gorgeous! So happy she’s back!” declared SicKie. (more…)

Did Amber Valletta Really Need All That Photoshop in Blumarine’s Spring 2018 Campaign?

Irina Shayk and Blumarine proved to be a solid match last season but the Russian model is out for Spring 2018 in favor of Amber Valletta. Sticking with photographic duo Luigi & Iango, the team heads lakeside for the new campaign, making use of the scenic location in a series of black and white, and color shots. Male model Phillip Mayberry, who joins Amber in a few of the campaign images, is clearly outshined by the American beauty.

Our forum members immediately noticed the overt use of retouching in the photos. “Looks good for Blumarine, but the Photoshop on her is too literal. She doesn’t look like herself here. Granted Liugi & Iango often retouch a young girl like Anna Cleveland to hell and back, this still looks eerie,” voiced Benn98 the moment the campaign came to light.

“People need to stop hiring Luigi & Iango and just hire graphic designers. At least a designer might create more realistic looking people,” commented lelaid. (more…)

UK ELLE managed to peak our forum members’ interest for yet another month. “UK ELLE is really killing it. Love it (except the awful ‘refresh’ layout),” posted MON the moment the cover came to light.

“Wow, I wasn’t expecting this at all. Very pretty,” commented Bobby153. “That ‘refresh’ font is truly terrible. What is it with British publications wanting to butcher their covers with awful layouts?”  (more…)
