In a sea of recycled cover stars, you’ve got to hand it to magazines that constantly push the boundaries and deliver original content time and time again. Case in point: Jalouse‘s April 2015 cover featuring social-media mavens Hailey Baldwin and Lucky Blue Smith which spread like wildfire across our forums. The pair pose for the trendy French glossy clad in head-to-toe Versace for an 80s-themed cover.
Unfortunately, the majority of our forum members weren’t fans. “Yeah, this isn’t their best. Not a good image at all,” TeeVanity bemoaned within seconds of the cover surfacing.
“Hailey looks so messy and greasy and Blue looks strung out and it’s actually a pretty (unintentionally) hilarious shot,” shared lelaid soon after.
Forum member TREVOFASHIONISTO thought “they look like a young Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi,” which got the rest of us in the mood for some harmless mocking.
“OMG YES. Lol. I love Hailey and she looks lovely but… ELLEN AND PORTIA!” replied ThatGuyPaul.
Also not showing much enthusiasm was nanker_pledge: “I like the concept, but the hair and makeup are really awful, and their facial expression is ridiculous. This obsession that Jalouse has developed with socialites/daughters-of is getting really boring and redundant.”
“Too much shine and hair product, they look dirty imo… but I guess it goes hand in hand with the 80s layout so it works,” described kokobombon.
