Vogue Russia Goes Minimalist for April With Two Sleek Grace Elizabeth Covers

Vogue Russia has been ticking all the right boxes of late. The magazine nailed the attitude of the 80s with its Grace Hartzel cover for February and Luna Bijl‘s electrifying cover for March basically blew us away. Not bad for a magazine that’s undergoing some major staff changes. For April 2018, the title introduces a bold, sleek and sophisticated new cover design featuring forum favorite Grace Elizabeth. Photographed on location in Morocco by Giampaolo Sgura, the American model, who recently fronted Vogue Paris, wears a pair of H&M pants and some Bulgari jewelry in two nearly identical cover images.

Our forum members were quick to show the covers some love. “I absolutely love this! It’s a simple, fresh and clean cover but it screams ‘glamour is back.’ I like it,” approved MON at once.

“Good God, finally! They’re back to glamour and refinement. I like the concept and the shots, just not sure why we have two very similar looking ones. I think these are the best Sgura covers in some time. At least it’s something different for this edition,” Benn98 applauded. (more…)

Lily James Stars on the Idyllic April Cover of British Harper’s Bazaar

If you’ve been following UK Harper’s Bazaar for the past few years, you may have noticed a formula they tend to follow issue after issue, cover after cover. An actress? Check. An underrated photographer? Check. A tranquil British countryside location? Check. For April 2018, Lily James is the latest actress to be slotted into the aesthetic, captured on location in an idyllic village setting, photographed by Richard Phibbs and styled by Miranda Almond. In the newsstand cover image (below), Lily walks through the village wearing a floral Erdem dress while taking a break from riding her bike.

For the most part, our forum members liked what they saw. “Oooh, this is a really cute cover, they nailed ‘British springtime’ and Lily is adorable,” admired forum member SallyAlbright the second the cover came to light.

“This is a thriving magazine at a time when others are closing down, so I can’t really knock the formula. It’s got a signature look and it’s got a dedicated readership. It’s usually beautifully made. I should just give in and enjoy it,” added tigerrouge. (more…)

Alicia Vikander’s Marie Claire Cover Might Actually Be a Winner

Alicia Vikander never seems to catch a break when it comes to getting a half-decent shot on a fashion magazine cover. The likes of UK ELLE, Porter and US Vogue have given it their best shot (and were soundly panned in our forums) and now American Marie Claire makes an attempt for April 2018. The magazine commissioned photographer Thomas Whiteside and stylist Alison Edmond to profile the Tomb Raider star, who can be found posing in the soft and pretty newsstand cover image (below) wearing Louis Vuitton (for which she is the brand ambassador).

Per usual, Alicia’s cover generated a whole host of mixed feedback in our forums. “This girl is so cute yet so overrated. She’s literally everywhere and this is getting boring. Hope we won’t see her til 2019,” wrote forum member biagiolr at once.

“Ouch, she is so boring!” added narcyza. (more…)

Adwoa Aboah Shows Some Skin on Allure’s April Cover

As reported at the end of 2017, Allure is cutting back to 11 print issues per year and select issues will focus solely on the eyes, hair, skin and nails as special-themed editions throughout the year. As a result, Edie Campbell‘s cover for January focused on the eyes, Lupita Nyong’o gave us major hair envy last month and Adwoa Aboah shows us some skin on Allure‘s latest. Photographed by Daniel Jackson, the current face of Chanel Eyewear wears nothing but a pair of Yasmine Eslami briefs in the raw April 2018 cover photo.

Despite the magazine’s best efforts, our forum members won’t be rushing to the newsstand for this one. “Adwoa is no Mariah Carey, but how come like Mariah, she has the same face on each and every editorial she has. She looks the same always,” critiqued MON of Adwoa’s modeling abilities.

“Because we’re an the Era of Mica [Arganaraz] and Fernanda Ly and every other model that never looks any different in any editorial. Linda [Evangelista] they are not,” responded A.D.C. (more…)

Britney Spears Is Unrecognizable in Kenzo’s New La Collection Memento Campaign

The pop stars of the 90s are certainly having a moment within the fashion industry. Mariah Carey is currently fronting V Magazine and now Britney Spears joins forces with Kenzo, filling us with all kinds of nostalgia. Creative directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon decided to use the iconic all-American songstress as the face of Kenzo’s second La Collection Memento line of clothing for Spring 2018, inspired by the loud attitude of the 80s. Britney was shot on location at a Hollywood studio in Los Angeles by master fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh.

“Photoshop is just shocking…” voiced KissMiss. (more…)

Vogue Turkey Just Gave Hailey Baldwin Her Very First Vogue Cover

Despite being on everyone’s radar for quite some time, it’s hard to believe that Hailey Baldwin is only just scoring her first Vogue cover. Following in the footsteps of BFF Kendall Jenner, Hailey becomes a cover girl for Vogue Turkey’s March 2018 issue. It’s a shame the American beauty isn’t solo for the occasion, though, as she’s joined by male model Valentine Rontez in the studio image shot by Liz Collins.

Vogue Turkey doesn’t exactly have the best track record on our forums and this month is no exception. “Didn’t think she’d ever book a Vogue cover. Hailey’s face doesn’t scream model to me, it never does. I understand what they went for, just a pity the execution looks so awful. Liz Collins is normally a capable photographer,” Benn98 critiqued.

“It’s like someone asked them to demonstrate the phrase, ‘You don’t know whether you’re coming or going,'” mocked tigerrouge of the posing.

“Oh, boy!! That is NOT the image you want as your first Vogue cover. Brutal!” declared Miss Dalloway. (more…)
