Gisele Bündchen Looks Fresh From 1998 on Vogue Japan’s February 2018 Cover

Is Gisele Bündchen set for a comeback in 2018? She was just unveiled as one of the faces of Versace’s new campaign, posing alongside fellow supermodels, and is now Vogue Japan’s cover girl for February 2018. We needed a little “Queen Gisele” after the magazine’s dull Lily-Rose Depp cover last month. Showing everyone how it’s truly done, Gisele works her effortless magic in the newsstand cover (below), photographed by Luigi & Iango. Gisele was styled by Patrick Mackie for the occasion and wears a bejeweled Christian Dior bodysuit (which might look familiar next to this at the newsstand).

Despite the gorgeous newsstand cover, our forum members were intrigued by something else. “Wow, that second cover (below) is a radical departure from what Vogue Japan typically offers. She looks beautiful there, too! I love them both – but of course, I am a massive Gisele fan and so am probably biased to some degree. It’s wonderful seeing her each time,” raved happycanadian.

“I absolutely love it! Both shots are gorgeous! So happy she’s back!” declared SicKie. (more…)

Did Amber Valletta Really Need All That Photoshop in Blumarine’s Spring 2018 Campaign?

Irina Shayk and Blumarine proved to be a solid match last season but the Russian model is out for Spring 2018 in favor of Amber Valletta. Sticking with photographic duo Luigi & Iango, the team heads lakeside for the new campaign, making use of the scenic location in a series of black and white, and color shots. Male model Phillip Mayberry, who joins Amber in a few of the campaign images, is clearly outshined by the American beauty.

Our forum members immediately noticed the overt use of retouching in the photos. “Looks good for Blumarine, but the Photoshop on her is too literal. She doesn’t look like herself here. Granted Liugi & Iango often retouch a young girl like Anna Cleveland to hell and back, this still looks eerie,” voiced Benn98 the moment the campaign came to light.

“People need to stop hiring Luigi & Iango and just hire graphic designers. At least a designer might create more realistic looking people,” commented lelaid. (more…)

UK ELLE managed to peak our forum members’ interest for yet another month. “UK ELLE is really killing it. Love it (except the awful ‘refresh’ layout),” posted MON the moment the cover came to light.

“Wow, I wasn’t expecting this at all. Very pretty,” commented Bobby153. “That ‘refresh’ font is truly terrible. What is it with British publications wanting to butcher their covers with awful layouts?”  (more…)

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.

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…)
