UK ELLE Names Damaris Goddrie Model of the Year

April is shaping up to be a decent month for diversity, first with Allure embracing three models of color on its diversity issue and now ELLE UK names Damaris Goddrie “model of the year.” After a string of less than impressive covers this year, UK ELLE regains our attention with the beautiful Dutch native. Photographed by Gilles Bensimon on the idyllic island of Saint Lucia, Damaris looks like a natural wearing yellow Chanel amongst the lush surroundings.

Members of our forums were quick to show ELLE‘s latest some love. “Wow, what a summery and vibrant cover for British ELLE. This is a winner for me. Perfect use of art direction and confident attitude,” stated Benn98 the moment the cover dropped.

“I love it, Damaris looks fantastic,” added TeeVanity. (more…)

Imaan Hammam Earns Her Top Model Crown With Vogue Japan’s Stunning May Cover

We’re barely halfway through 2017 and our forums have already declared Vogue Japan their favorite magazine of the year. Ever since Gigi Hadid‘s cover back in December, the Japanese title has been killing it — and it’s newest cover for May 2017 is no exception. Photographer Giampaolo Sgura delivers a gorgeous cover image featuring Imaan Hammam, who looks every bit the supermodel she’s proving herself to be. Imaan works a black plunging Ralph Lauren dress in the cheerful and electrifying photo — and our forums just can’t get enough.

“Finally a solo cover for Imaan! Not multi-girl… not multiple covers… just Imaan looking gorgeous,” immediately applauded A.D.C after seeing the cover.

“Imaan is on a roll and I’m not mad at all, because she ALWAYS delivers!! Her smile is contagious. Kudos on a solo cover!!” congratulated an elated RanThe. (more…)

Bella Hadid Is a Natural Beauty on Porter’s Summer Cover, Shot by Controversial Photographer Terry Richardson

We couldn’t get over just how miserable Natalia Vodianova looked on Porter‘s last issue, but for the Summer 2017 edition, Net-a-Porter’s magazine serves up the perfect seasonal cover. Gracing the cover for the first time is fashion’s undeniable It girl, Bella Hadid. Photographed in the Bahamas by controversial photographer Terry Richardson, Bella (who’s certainly no stranger to the newsstand) looks serene — and just a bit sunburned — in the unretouched cover photo wearing minimal makeup and a windblown updo.

The moment the cover struck, our forum members ignited a fierce debate. “Why do these women’s magazines (especially Porter, one of the smarter ones) keep using Terry?! Not buying!” posted an enraged t-rex.

“I find it appalling that a magazine that sells [itself] on the fact it is filled with, and is produced for, smart and intelligent women, looks to Richardson to shoot a cover for it. He’s as bad a photographer as he seems to be a human being. Anyone could have shot this image, Bella’s natural beauty is what is displayed here, no expertise of camera work,” fumed honeycombchild.

‘Supergirl’ Karlie Kloss Works Saint Laurent and Curls on the Cover of Vogue Australia

Our forums often complain about Vogue Australia’s tendency to eschew models on its covers (though last month featured a barely recognizable Cindy Crawford). So, as the magazine unveils its installment for April 2017, we were more than just a little pleased to see Karlie Kloss on the cover. The Vogue Australia team assembled photographer Benny Horne and stylist Christine Centenera to shoot the all-American beauty against a wall of graffiti while working a Saint Laurent dress and a head full of curls.

After seeing just a small preview of the cover, forum members were already applauding the outcome. “I like it already!! The art direction looks sleek and not too cluttered, there’s a ‘fashion’ vibe flowing, and I love the colors. It’s what I hope Vogue Paris would do on a regular basis,” approved Benn98 at once.

“I love it already from that small preview, and I loooooove Karlie’s hair and earrings,” added Bertrando3. (more…)

Allure’s Stunning April Cover Celebrates the Beauty of Diversity

Allure is no stranger to the occasional misstep when it comes to cover concepts (we still can’t forget Allison Williams‘ washed-out cover last month). But this month, the beauty bible gets it oh-so-right with a stunning cover celebrating “the beauty of diversity.” Dilone, Imaan Hammam and Aamito Lagum lend their grace and beauty to the effortless image shot by master portrait photographer Patrick Demarchelier.

Members of our forums were in awe of the cover. “It’s crazy how Allure can go from the most horrible cover ever (March with Allison Williams) to this stunning cover… all three girls look absolutely beautiful and complement each other very well. I love the serene expression they have,” applauded sixtdaily.

“What Vogue should have looked like, this is gorgeous!” raved TREVOFASHIONISTO. (more…)

Christy Turlington Is Electrifying on Vogue Paris’ Vibrant April Cover

Emmanuelle Alt sure loves a good throwback, tapping 90s supermodel Christy Turlington for Vogue Paris’ latest cover. After last month’s cover star, transgender bombshell Valentina Sampaio, sent shockwaves through the industry (and our forums), French Vogue continues to make bold choices for April 2017. Captured by Dutch photographic duo Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Christy flashes her signature energetic smile while wearing a shocking-pink pleated Valentino Haute Couture number in the electrifying cover photo.

The majority of our forum members couldn’t believe their eyes — and not necessarily in a good way. “Absolute eyesore. Christy looks awful too,” exclaimed a horrified anlabe32 after the cover dropped.

“Such a horrible cover. That dress is so hideous!” stated Scotty. (more…)
