Gigi Hadid Stars on Vogue Arabia’s Captivating Debut Issue

The wait for the overdue debut of Arabian Vogue is finally over as the magazine proudly unveils a set of two covers for March 2017 featuring none other than Gigi Hadid. Already on the covers of British Vogue, American Vogue and Chinese Vogue this month, the model-of-the-moment celebrates her Palestinian roots by launching the first-ever issue of Vogue Arabia. Gigi is featured in two intense and captivating black and white portrait images shot by Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin.

Forum members gave the covers a standing ovation. “Very strong debut. Respectfully conservative and still sensual. Thank goodness some publications still haven’t forsaken skillful lighting, sharp composition and layout. Hopefully the content will continue the cover’s momentum instead of devolving into an expensive department store catalogue. Gigi exudes such heat and silent-film star allure,” wrote Phuel the moment the covers dropped.

“Mysterious, beautiful, expensive, and powerful. Such stunning covers. I knew they would use Gigi for the first cover, but wow at Inez & Vinoodh – so happy for them!” Miss Dalloway approved. (more…)

Bella Hadid Just Dropped Her First Official Christian Dior Cosmetics Campaign

Christian Dior is certainly getting its money’s worth with Bella Hadid. Immediately after announcing back in May 2016 that Bella was the brand’s newest ambassador for Christian Dior Cosmetics, she became well affiliated with the iconic French fashion house. Having already starred in a handful of social media videos for Dior to plug various products, the current face of Moschino and Fendi has proudly unveiled her first campaign image for Dior’s Pump’N’Volume mascara. Bella stares down the photographer’s lens while serving a fierce makeup look from Dior’s very own Peter Philip.

So far, however, our forum members aren’t feeling the long-awaited campaign. “LOL, whoever drew that dress did it in Paint and should be fired without prior notice,” pointed out an eagle-eyed dodencebt, immediately after the image found its way onto our forums.

“The more I look at the dress, the more I see the artifice!” echoed Benn98, responding in total agreement. “I’m more bothered by the fact that they’ve retouched every inch of life out of her here. Lips are thinner, vague semblance of cheekbones, skin so smooth it looks like rubber. I get that it’s a beauty campaign and women love ideals, but surely they’ve taken it a bit too far here!” he went on to vent.

Early days for a more thorough analysis from our forum members, but it doesn’t look too positive so far. How do you feel toward the shot? False advertising? Overly-Photoshopped? Let us know here.

After an Eight-Year Hiatus, Gisele Bündchen Returns as the Face of Loewe’s Fall 2017 Campaign

It’s hard to believe that we haven’t seen Gisele Bündchen in print since the cover of Vogue Brazil back in November 2016. Thankfully, that’s about to change with the unveiling of the Brazilian bombshell’s latest campaign. Appearing in two campaign photos as the face of Loewe’s Fall 2017 collection, Gisele’s return to the spotlight marks a reunion with both Loewe and legendary photographer Steven Meisel.

As the images made their way onto our forums earlier today, forum members found themselves a little startled over the outcome. “Wow! The second one (below) is amazing. The first one (above) looks a bit odd though, looks like her head isn’t attached to her body,” Scotty commented straight away.

“The second one looks beautiful. BUT it doesn’t look like Gisele,” cried out MON. (more…)

Model-Activist Cameron Russell Stuns on The Edit’s Latest Cover

Despite a few recent missteps, our forum members credit Porter for consistently delivering covers that most other newsstand fashion glossies wouldn’t dare to produce. Similarly, Net-a-Porter’s weekly digital magazine The Edit can usually be counted on for quality work. Nicole Kidman and the ever-fabulous Imaan Hammam have been recent subjects for the digital title and this week’s star is model-turned-activist Cameron Russell. Photographed by Victor Demarchelier and styled by Alison Edmond, Cameron wears a one-shoulder Balenciaga coat in the cover image.

Members of our forums were quick to praise The Edit’s latest. “Perfection! You’d be hard-pressed to find a bad Cameron Russell edit. She once again stuns here. Everything looks very Vogue Australia, when they used to do good!” championed Benn98.

“Victor is doing Patrick [Demarchelier] better than Patrick. Cameron looks so beautiful,” exclaimed a more than satisfied TaylorBinque. (more…)

Nineties supermodel Christy Turlington poses in leather Christian Dior for a classic studio shot with photographer Norman Jean Roy.
