Edie Campbell’s January Cover of Allure Makes a Bold Statement

In 2017, Allure served up a host of compelling and diverse cover subjects throughout the year. In an effort to continue the beauty bible’s success into 2018, we’re treated to a mega close-up of Edie Campbell for the January issue. Edie sports a bold eye makeup look on an otherwise natural face in the vibrant image shot by Daniel Jackson.

Our forum members had mixed opinions on the unconventional cover. “I love it!” said Lola701. “It’s kinda early 00s but it’s great and fresh. It’s indeed risky for Allure but I applaud the risk. I don’t know if it will be successful but it’s great!”

Sharing the same enthusiasm was lelaid: “I really love the cover, to stand out on newsstands these days you’ve got to take chances and kudos to Michelle [Lee] for going for it.” (more…)

Vittoria Ceretti, Cara Taylor and Binx Walton Team Up for Alberta Ferretti’s Lovely Spring 2018 Campaign

Alberta Ferretti knows how to create a fantastic advertising campaign. The luxury Italian fashion label received our forum’s seal of approval last season with a captivating Tim Walker campaign and the season before that, pulled off a stellar Steven Meisel-shot offering. Ferretti’s latest is no different as the brand moves on to photographer Mario Sorrenti for Spring 2018. Models Vittoria Ceretti, Cara Taylor and Binx Walton appear together in several images and solo in others, all styled by Carine Roitfeld.

“Some lovely shots in here, great cast as well,” anlabe32 approved. (more…)

Vogue Ukraine Gives Alek Wek Her First-Ever Solo Vogue Cover for January 2018

Vogue Ukraine had a spectacular 2017, releasing stunning covers one after another— and it appears as though the publication will do the same in 2018. For January, the magazine gifts us with Alek Wek’s first-ever solo Vogue cover (guess it’s better late than never). The South Sudanese-British beauty takes it to the beach wearing head-to-toe Balenciaga, posing for photographer Alexander Saladrigas.

“An OG Vogue cover finally! And, as expected, only Vogue Ukraine has the balls to do this,” applauded MagFan. (more…)

Supermodels Past and Present Star in Versace’s Spectacular Spring 2018 Campaign

Donatella Versace gave us a show-stopping tribute in memory of her brother Gianni with Versace’s Spring 2018 collection, so we expected an equally jaw-dropping advertising campaign to complement the collection. Imagine our delight to see Gisele Bündchen and Naomi Campbell join the likes of Kaia Gerber and Gigi Hadid (in addition to many more established models) for an epic series of images. Ditching photographer Bruce Weber (thankfully), Donatella welcomes back Versace and forum favorite Steven Meisel to capture the campaign, with the girls proving every inch their supermodel worth.

Members of our forums couldn’t contain their excitement. “Honey, this is rich!! I can see a stable of muses for this. Meisel, supermodels and Versace, it’s a return to old glory. Welcome home!” cheered Aedlacir.

“This feels so right for the times! It’s absolute perfection. Versace was in major need of a reboot and the collection was a home run. Meisel is the cherry on top! This collection will sell very well,” said an overjoyed GivenchyHomme. (more…)

Bella Hadid Starts 2018 With Two Gorgeous Vogue Korea Covers

If you thought Bella Hadid couldn’t top her wildly successful 2017, it looks like 2018 is going to be just as busy as she begins the new year with a set of Vogue Korea covers under her belt. For the publication’s January 2018 edition, Bella proves she’s the perfect choice for Christian Dior Cosmetics with her flawless complexion and intense stare on a duo of close-up portrait images photographed by Ahn Jooyoung.

The covers generated a mixture of feedback from our forum members. “Having a pretty face doesn’t make you a good model. She can’t emote nor model. And what’s with the art direction,” quipped TaylorBinque the second the covers dropped.

Expressing the same sort of sentiments was Nomar. “Forget about the lackluster expressions, look at that horrendous typography,” he pointed out. (more…)

Emily DiDonato Is Perfect on Vogue Thailand’s December Cover

Vogue Thailand typically flies under the radar on our forums, despite managing to score the likes of Lily Aldridge, Rosie Huntington-Whitley and Kate Upton as cover girls. Emily DiDonato, who recently graced Vogue Turkey, helps the magazine close out 2017 on a high. Emily looks radiant and fresh in the cover shot wearing Gucci, photographed in the studio by Natth Jaturapahu.

Our forum members were here for it. “YAYYY!!! So happy to see Emily. This does just look like a re-used Maybelline ad but gorgeous nonetheless. I can never get enough of that face,” wrote an elated Bobby153 the moment the cover struck.

“So colorful and cute — and she looks like an actual person rather than an airbrushed flat outline,” tigerrouge admired. (more…)
