Rooney Mara’s Weak Vogue Cover Looks More Like an Outtake

We’re still leafing through Vogue‘s 770+ page September issue and the magazine is already moving on with the unveiling of its October 2017 cover. Four covers featuring Jennifer Lawrence is a tough act to follow but Vogue welcomes back Rooney Mara as its latest cover girl. Sticking with Annie Leibovitz for yet another month, the American actress was photographed on location at the Antony Woodland Garden in Cornwell, England (British Harper’s Bazaar much?). Complete with styling from Tonne Goodman, the team serve up a picturesque and tranquil cover story with Rooney wearing Valentino in the cover image (below).

Right from the start, our forum members weren’t feeling it. “This cover must have been last minute decision! This is not something Anna would pick. And what’s up with two consecutive covers with flowering dresses, and the cover star not facing the camera? Tragic. Unforgettable Fall? More like forgettable cover,” slammed MON.

“Looks like a backstage shot,” pointed out mikel. (more…)

Was This Really the Best Shot of Jennifer Aniston for Harper’s Bazaar’s October Cover?

Jennifer Aniston has graced the cover of American Harper’s Bazaar several times before, including some “breathtaking and dreamy” imagery for the publication (and for us, of course). Following an eyesore of a September cover, the magazine welcomes back the familiar face for October 2017, with Jennifer posing for an old-school Bazaar cover story wearing Louis Vuitton on the newsstand cover (below), photographed by Mariano Vivanco.

Our forum members could not believe the final choice of cover image. “Nope. Not a flattering pic, at all – at least the face. She looks terrified. Love Jennifer Aniston and always happy to see her on anything, but this cover isn’t working,” assessed forum member happycanadian the second the cover struck.

“I actually laughed when I saw it. It’s not a good look. They actually went for this cover shot? I cannot believe it! Doesn’t Jen have a photo approval policy? My goodness! What a tragic photo. It doesn’t justify her beauty,” exclaimed a horrified MON. (more…)

Winona Ryder and Tracee Ellis Ross Win the Cover Wars for W Magazine’s Annual ‘New Royals Issue’

Now that Edward Enninful has moved across the pond to head up British Vogue (debut issue dropping in December, FYI), we never know quite what to expect from W Magazine. Despite the staff changes, the magazine continues on with its annual ‘The New Royals‘ issue for October. This year’s series of covers features Tilda Swinton, Winona Ryder, Hailee Steinfeld, Tracee Ellis Ross, Chris Hemsworth, James Corden and a whole host of others celebrities. Each star was photographed by Mario Sorrenti for a solo cover and with so many to choose from, it’s only natural for one or two to stand out from the pack.

Our forum members had no trouble deciding on favorites. “Wow, these covers are surprisingly good! Things will get better now that Edward is gone. Love Winona, Tracee and Saiorse’s covers. These are the best. The Tilda cover looks a bit overplayed, we’ve seen this so many times,” declared Benn98.

“I’m here for Winona. Robert P’s is so odd! It’s a shame James Corden’s has ended up coming off like a bit of a joke,” sighed honeycombchild. (more…)

Rachel Weisz’s Fifth Cover of UK Harper’s Bazaar Is Just More of the Same for the Magazine

It’s official: UK Harper’s Bazaar is stuck in a rut and we’re desperate for a shift in direction. The magazine loves to welcome back the same cover subjects and photographs the vast majority of its fashion stories in the British countryside. As a result, seeing actress Rachel Weisz on the cover of the British publication for the fifth time, shot amongst the surroundings of a Victorian country mansion does not surprise us. Photographed by Agata Pospieszynska, Rachel takes a moment to read a good novel while wearing Lanvin (as one does) on the cover for subscribers (below), and poses outside wearing a red Valenitno dress for the newsstand cover (after the jump).

Our forum members practically knew what to expect. “I often wonder where they find so many flowing chiffon dresses for their endless country editorials,” said A.D.C upon seeing the cover.

“It’s the magazine for people who want to live in a fantasy world where nothing exists other than the garden of their dreams,” chimed in tigerrouge. (more…)

Natural Beauty Christy Turlington Covers Vogue Germany for October 2017

We’ve practically been counting down the days until that disastrous and overdone Claudia Schiffer cover of Vogue Germany disappears from newsstands and the German fashion bible finally comes to our aid with the newly released October 2017 issue featuring yet another supermodel from the 90s. Photographer Daniel Jackson lets Christy Turlington’s natural, effortless beauty shine through with a bold, yet minimalist cover image of the model wearing a cobalt blue Calvin Klein blazer.

Members of our forums were quick to discuss the cover. “Claudia last month, now Christy! They are on a roll!! The image is refreshing. Not much is going on. It’s a simple one, a much-needed cover nowadays. However, the layout is just tragic. The font is an eyesore,” pointed out MON the moment the cover struck.

“All this cover needed was Christy, stripped back and pristine. The art direction is headache-inducing,” agreed zoom. (more…)

Luna Bijl’s Beauty Is on Another Level in Chanel’s Gorgeous Fall 2017 Eyewear Campaign

Karl Lagerfeld usually gets his celebrity friends/muses to star in Chanel’s eyewear campaigns, with the likes of Cara Delevingne, Lottie Moss and Willow Smith starring in previous ads. However, for Fall 2017, the Kaiser throws us a complete curve ball by securing “real model” Luna Bijl as the face of Chanel’s new line of optical glasses and sunglasses. Complete with styling from former British Vogue fashion director Lucinda Chambers, Karl captured the Vogue Paris favorite in his signature black and white photography and the outcome is everything a fashion campaign should be.

Our forum members were in awe. “It’s been so long since we’ve seen a proper model for the eyewear campaign that I forgot how good it can look. Luna is perfection in each and every shot. And the clothes look stunning on her,” rejoiced Benn98.

“Stunning! Now if Karl can go back to real models for his mainline campaigns!!” exclaimed sixtdaily. (more…)
