Where’s the Glamour? Gigi Hadid, Taylor Hill, Mica Arganaraz and Vittoria Ceretti Pose for Versace’s Fall 2017 Campaign

Bruce Weber’s aesthetic must be working for Donatella Versace, as the new Fall 2017 campaign marks his third season shooting for Versace. Replacing Anna Ewers and Edie Campbell (and a pack of horses) from last season, Versace and Weber secured models Gigi Hadid, Taylor Hill, Mica Arganaraz and Vittoria Ceretti, while moving things indoors this time around.

The campaign, however, received a bashing on our forums. “Seriously, Bruce Weber again? It looks better than last season but I’m not a fan of that cast,” wrote an underwhelmed dodencebt.

“So random, nothing draws the eye,” pointed out Nymphaea. (more…)

Bella Hadid Shows Off Her New Haircut on the Cover of Vogue Italia June 2017

As documented across social media, Bella Hadid (along with Natalie Westling) shot for Vogue Italia’s forthcoming June 2017 edition with photographic duo Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin requesting Bella cut her hair especially for the occasion. Bella showcases her newly shorn bob haircut while posing solo atop an exercise bike while wearing Chanel (as one does).

A vast majority of our forum members were disappointed by the highly anticipated cover. “I’ll wait for July. VI’s new goal: Get different photographers to imitate Meisel’s work? I’ve never seen an I&V photo like that,” voiced Scotty.

“Okay… next!” declared an uninterested MDNA. (more…)

Bella Hadid’s New Bulgari Campaign by Terry Richardson Looks Cheap, Not Luxe

Like it or not, Bella Hadid is the name on everyone’s lips right now as she continues to dominate the fashion scene. Giuseppe Zanotti declared her the face of the Fall 2017 collection, appearing solo in the brand’s new campaign and now Bella makes her debut as an ambassador for Bulgari. Not only was she just announced as the face of Bulgari’s new scent, the 20-year-old’s campaign for the upscale Italian label’s new line of accessories just dropped. Lensed by Terry Richardson (major eye roll), Bella amps up the energy in the images, rocking the collection of Serpenti handbags.

The images, however, fell completely flat with our forum members. “It’s a nice fun image but not for Bulgari, IMO. Last season with Lily Aldridge was so elegant and now this?” pointed out a far from satisfied kokobombon.

“It’s nice in a Kate Spade kind of way, but you’re right, certainly not for Bulgari,” Benn98 agreed. “I don’t understand why they went to town with the launch, only to release a shot rendering her damn near unrecognizable. So pointless. Also, Terry! And now he’s trying to be [Mario] Testino. Wonder who’ll be next!”  (more…)

Something Important Is Missing From Ashley Graham’s ‘Body Confident’ Cover of UK Harper’s Bazaar

Models (instead of the usual roster of celebrities) may be British Harper’s Bazaar’s go-to cover choice lately, but it doesn’t always guarantee success. Moving on from Karen Elson, the magazine embraces Ashley Graham for the new July 2017 issue. Following her successful cover of British Vogue back in January, Ashley looks radiant on the inviting newsstand cover (below), captured by Alexi Lubomirski on location in New York. Oozing grace and confidence throughout the accompanying cover story, Ashley also appears on the magazine’s limited subscribers cover (after the jump).

As soon as the cover broke, our eagle-eyed forum members noticed something was missing from the newsstand cover. “Body confident and yet we see no body,” MON critiqued at once.

“Body confident but no body. Shame on Harpers!” echoed a less than impressed 8eight. (more…)

Lana Del Rey Photographs Like a Dream for UK ELLE’s Two June Covers

After some major staff changes over the past few months (former fashion director Anne-Marie Curtis was appointed the magazine’s new editor-in-chief), UK ELLE is on the right track. Victoria Beckham appeared on last month’s cover while a radiant Damaris Goddrie had the honors for April. Now, Lana Del Rey makes her debut on the British fashion monthly for June 2017, captured by photographer Thomas Whiteside, while perched on a patch of grass wearing Gucci.

The majority of our forum members gave the cover rave reviews. “I like that cover shot, with its laid-back mood, she’s just hanging around on a summer evening,” admired tigerrouge.

“Ah, Lana! Such a beautiful summer cover,” added a delighted StockholmFW. (more…)

Bella Hadid Is the New Face of Giuseppe Zanotti, Starring in the Fall 2017 Campaign

Bella Hadid is on top of the world right now. Yesterday, she was announced as the face of Bulgari’s upcoming fragrance during a spectacular event in Rome and now, Bella is unveiled as the face of Giuseppe Zanotti for the Fall 2017 season. Replacing last season’s model, Maartje Verhoef, Bella appears to be the perfect fit for the luxury Italian shoe company as she rocks Zanotti’s latest designs in the moody images shot by Mario Sorrenti.

Our forum members found themselves rather pleasantly surprised with the result. “I like the first shot, but both are doing a great job at selling these shoes,” commented Benn98 the second the campaign images were released.

“She is really selling me those shoes. Bella best campaign work so far,” confessed Zposen. (more…)
