Anna Ewers Delivers Another Boring Campaign for Isabel Marant Fall 2017

From Stuart Weitzman welcoming back Gigi Hadid to Nicolas Ghesquière hiring photographer Bruce Weber for the umpteenth time for Louis Vuitton, just about every major fashion brand has been playing it safe for the Fall 2017 ad campaigns. Isabel Marant continues the trend with the return of Anna Ewers as the face of the new Fall collection. Once again photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadinwith Geraldine Saglio on styling duties, the team switched things up a bit by introducing some creative collages into the mix.

Members of our forum weren’t afraid to share their opinions on the effort. “Looks like last season’s campaign and I’m already bored — even if I love Anna,” commented badgalcrush.

“I&V again? Great lighting but boring overall,” voiced Legolas. (more…)

Helen Mirren Is Allure’s Surprise September Cover Star

As the September issues continue to be released, our forum members have been complaining about all the predictable and safe covers. Until now, that is. Allure, which has been having a great year with issues dedicated to celebrating diversity and breaking down stereotypes, now delivers none other than Helen Mirren as its September cover star. The 72-year-old British actress looks radiant in the cover shot wearing a stark white Carmen March dress, captured by photographer Scott Trindle.

Needless to say, our forum members were ecstatic. “No way! Definitely getting this. Helen was the last person I’d have expected to see on Allure. She looks great here and age-appropriate,” applauded Benn98 the second the cover struck.

“What a pleasant surprise!” exclaimed Suhzie. (more…)

Bella Hadid Stars on ELLE Russia’s Delicate and Beautiful September Cover

Given her immense success this year, we half expected to see Bella Hadid on just about every major international September issue. She managed to score the cover of Vogue China alongside fellow model Chu Wong and now goes solo for ELLE Russia. The magazine doesn’t receive much attention on our forums (the last time being Lindsey Wixson‘s cover in 2015) but our forum members couldn’t help but notice this month’s beautiful cover. Photographed by Ben Morris, the current face of Max Mara Accessories looks demure wearing a Prada dress and Bulgari jewels.

Members of our forums seemed pleased with Russian ELLE‘s latest. “Bella definitely has a global appeal, she’s gracing covers in all the different markets, something not all of her Instamodel peers have,” noted magsaddict.

“I like this minimalism but I’d rather see Magdalena Frackowiak on the cover, not an Instagirl over and over again,” added narcyza. (more…)

Cara Delevingne Appears on Two Striking Covers for UK ELLE’s Revamped September Issue

Ever since news first broke that Anne-Marie Curtis was to take over the reins at British ELLE, our forums have been keeping a very close eye on the title. To kick-start her promotion from fashion director, Curtis embraced diversity for August and received a round of applause on our forums. She now cements her status as editor-in-chief by ushering in a whole new look for the magazine with the help of model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne as cover girl for September 2017. Shot by Kai Z Feng, Delevingne stars on two striking covers, wearing Calvin Klein on one (below) and Chanel (for which she is the face of this season) on the other (after the jump).

ELLE‘s new look was bound to receive attention from our forum members. “Wow, thumbs up from me!!! The revamp, that is. It looks unlike anything on the newsstand and not very British at all. Very modern. And the styling looks stunning as well. It’s just Cara with her awful hair which I’m not sold on,” stated Benn98.

“Romeo Beckham already getting covers? He looks great. Jokes aside, actually really like these. She works it, and her PR should get a raise she is getting tons of covers, despite another flop movie!” Miss Dalloway noted. (more…)

Katy Perry and W Magazine Try Something New for the September Issue

Most of the mainstream fashion titles have been playing it pretty safe for September, but leave it to W Magazine to produce a daring and unconventional cover for the most important issue on the calendar. Last year’s cover was bestowed upon Rihanna, who was photographed in a post-apocalyptic world. This year, Katy Perry vamps it up in Paris at night for photographer Steven Klein, with Edward Enninful on styling duty. Katy wears Saint Laurent on the special collector’s cover, which dynamically comes to life when scanned on W‘s new downloadable app, and serves up a completely different look on the second cover (after the jump).

W‘s latest innovation simply wasn’t enough to enthrall our forum members this month. “The cover shot looks like a still from a music video where she’s been caught mid-song. And enough with these not-very-nice short haircuts that people are sporting at the moment,” ranted tigerrouge.

“Seriously? What is that first cover? Secondhand embarrassment galore!! All of this is a definition of try hard!” slammed Miss Dalloway. (more…)

Emma Stone’s September Cover of Marie Claire Divides Our Forums

Marie Claire has had a pretty tough 2017 (at least by our forum’s standards). The American glossy started the year on a high with two successful covers featuring Claire Danes and Scarlett Johansson. Then came an underwhelming Priyanka Chopra cover and, more recently, a shockingly over-Photoshopped Jessica Biel offering for August. Now, the magazine just dropped its big September issue starring actress Emma Stone, who graces the publication for the first time, in a western-inspired shot lensed by Greg Kadel. On the newsstand cover (below), stylist Alison Edmond opted for Emma to work head-to-toe Christian Dior.

Our forum members could’ve done without a certain something. “The hat on her is not working for me,” stated Handbag Queen upon checking the cover out for the first time.

“Oh, that hat. Oh no. Way too Richie Sambora circa 1987 for me,” Lucien122 chimed in. (more…)
