Why Do Magazines Always Insist on Styling Lana Del Rey the Same Way?

Lana Del Rey is one of those people who photograph like an absolute dream for magazines. This was proven recently on the beautiful cover of British ELLE as well as a few months back on Dazed‘s Summer 2017 offering. Lana appropriately fronts V Magazine‘s #108 Americana issue for Fall Preview 2017, returning to the magazine’s front cover for a second time, photographed by Steven Klein. Taking part in the equestrian-inspired shoot, Lana gives good face sporting her signature bouffant hairstyle and wearing a Ralph Lauren coat and white Saint Laurent shirt teamed with a Balmain belt.

Unfortunately, our forum members simply weren’t feeling V’s latest. “Why does she have the same big hair again? Just like the last V/Klein shoot,” complained a disinterested Scotty the moment the cover struck.

“I’m wondering where is this Lust for Life in those pictures. Klein used to be so good!” mentioned Royal-Galliano, suggesting Lana’s latest album title didn’t reflect in the cover shoot. (more…)

Transgender Beauty Valentina Sampaio Graces ELLE Brazil’s Ethereal July Cover

Valentina Sampaio sent shock waves through the industry when she became the first transgender model to front the cover of Vogue, lending her grace and stunning beauty to Vogue Paris’ electrifying March cover. Prior to that, the Brazilian beauty covered ELLE Brazil in November 2016 and now the magazine welcomes her back for July 2017. Captured by Nicole Heiniger, Valentina is a vision in white Burberry on the light and airy cover.

The cover received immediate attention on our forums. “So simple and beautiful. She really sells me this, such a strong presence from her, right down to her hands. Excellent!” Miss Dalloway approved straight away.

“So beautiful, so very ELLE,” commented kokobombon. (more…)

Miss Piggy Outshines Hailey Baldwin on the Cover of Love Magazine

Leave it to Love Magazine to tap all the cool kids, with Hailey Baldwin being the latest It girl to cover the biannual publication. After Kendall Jenner photographed Love‘s covers last season, Alasdair McLellan was on hand to capture Jenner’s BFF for the Fall/Winter 2017 issue (or what seems to be just the cover preview at least). British ELLE‘s current cover star is joined by none other than Miss Piggy as they huddle up on location wearing a mixture of Ronald van der Kemp and custom Miu Miu.

Our forum members weren’t impressed from the get-go. “Reaching a new low,” commented sixtdaily the second the cover dropped.

“TBH, Miss Piggy stole the cover! My eyes went in on her immediately,” wrote MON in amazement. (more…)

Cara Delevingne Gives Major Attitude on Glamour’s August Cover

Whenever a mainstream fashion magazine features a model on the cover, our forums are (usually) thrilled. Last month, Glamour turned to model Ashley Graham and now, model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne fronts its August 2017 issue. Cara gives plenty of attitude in the Patrick Demarchelier-lensed cover photo, flexing her arms and clenching her fists while wearing new season Prada.

But a handful of our forum members weren’t impressed. “Feel like the concept was made with Katy Perry in mind, but they went with Cara last minute. The layout is hideous. HIDEOUS,” described a disgruntled MON the moment the cover dropped.

“I always like Cara but this cover is just a mess,” shared a far from impressed narcyza. (more…)

Emily Ratajkowski Shows Her Softer Side on Harper’s Bazaar Australia

Despite having a few Vogue covers under her belt, covering InStyle in March and being declared one of Marie Claire‘s fresh new faces this year, Emily Ratajkowski is still a rare sight at the newsstand (compared to the usual suspects we see each month). Emily now graces the August 2017 issue of Harper’s Bazaar Australia looking effortless and natural in the bold newsstand cover image (below), where she poses in the back of a convertible wearing Louis Vuitton.

Unfortunately, the cover left our forums divided. “This cover makes me realize how much presentation matters – if her image mostly consisted of work like this, I’d appreciate her as a gorgeous woman,” stated tigerrouge the moment the cover came to light.

“Love the image and styling, the blues are pleasing on the eye. Shame about the cover star. First Hailey Baldwin, now Emily. That said, this strategy of securing the lower tier Instagirls is a clever idea to keep the magazine relevant,” Benn98 chimed in. (more…)

Charlize Theron Channels Her Atomic Blonde Character on W Magazine’s August Cover

Fact: Charlize Theron is seriously photogenic. Whether she’s looking effortlessly sexy on WSJ or giving it her all in an advertising campaign for Christian Dior, Charlize never disappoints. Returning to the cover for a sixth time, Charlize fronts W Magazine‘s August 2017 edition, photographed by Alasdair McLellan and styled by Edward Enninful. Sporting platinum blonde hair, a bold makeup look and wearing shocking pink Proenza Schouler, Charlize appears to be in full character ito promote her highly anticipated Atomic Blonde movie.

The cover and accompanying spread divided our forums, however. “I simply cannot hate on this. My anticipation for Atomic Blonde is much too overwhelming. Even without my bias, it’s still a gorgeous cover (when considered in the right context). There’s definitely some retouching on her face, but it looks fine. Would never have imagined this to be shot by Alasdair,” wrote forum member Benn98 the moment the cover dropped.

“Yes, I’m here for Charlize channeling her Atomic Blonde character, but wow would never guess it’s by Alasdair!” Miss Dalloway echoed. (more…)
