Gigi Hadid Strips Down for Stuart Weitzman’s Latest Campaign

Stuart Weitzman doesn’t like to change a winning formula — and we have proof. Kate Moss was the face of his namesake brand for a number of seasons, followed by Gisele Bündchen who repped the shoe brand for several campaigns. Most recently, Weitzman has embraced the industry’s ultimate It girl, Gigi Hadid. Returning for her third consecutive Weitzman campaign, Gigi once again goes solo in the newly unveiled Spring 2017 spots. Per usual, the pictures were lensed by master photographer Mario Testino, who ultimately stuck with Weitzman’s signature black and white imagery.

After multiple seasons with the same concept, our forum members are yearning for change. “Every Stuart Weitzman campaign with Gigi is beginning to merge into one another! Why bother releasing new shots season after season?” questioned a disapproving Benn98.

“If at least the shoes were worth a campaign,” laughed an unimpressed Lola701. (more…)

Horses Steal the Spotlight From Edie Campbell and Anna Ewers in Versace’s Spring 2017 Campaign

Donatella Versace made no attempt to hide that models Edie Campbell and Anna Ewers had signed on to star in Versace’s mainline campaign for Spring 2017, posting a series of behind-the-scenes photos featuring the duo while on location in Kentucky. Replacing Karlie Kloss and Gigi Hadid but continuing to work with photographer Bruce Weber, Edie and Anna roam around a ranch and pose alongside male models and horses — a stark contrast from the Versace collection.

Members of our forums weren’t a fan of the concept. “So, clearly, this is not Versace. The two individual shots with Edie are take it or leave it for me — just meh. However, the one with Anna and Edie could not have been more stiff if they tried. Anna, especially, looks like she’s never modeled in her life. And her neck looks like she’s a football player,” MyNameIs critiqued at once.

“Versace in Kentucky? A mess. This is truly awful,” Scotty exclaimed in a state of shock. (more…)

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Fifth Cover for UK ELLE Does Not Disappoint

Rarely does Rosie Huntington-Whiteley disappoint on the cover of our favorite fashion glossies (and she’s fronted several over the past couple of months). Therefore, it’s no surprise that British ELLE had an instant hit when it was announced on our forums in November that Rosie was set to appear on its January issue. The fitness-themed cover, Rosie’s fifth for the magazine, is finally here and our forum members couldn’t be happier.

“It’s finally out and Rosie is just damn perfect!” raved Srdjan the second the cover surfaced, setting the tone for commentary to follow.

“Strong cover, love the covers. I know Rosie appears an awful lot on UK Harper’s Bazaar and UK ELLE but I’m absolutely okay with it. It’s very rare for her not to deliver, for me,” added a more than satisfied honeycombchild. (more…)

Zendaya’s January Allure Cover Was a Missed Opportunity to Showcase Her ‘Fierce’ Attitude

Allure succumbed to the Gigi Hadid craze with its December cover and now, the beauty bible’s first edition of the new year also features one of 2016’s most talked-about personalities. Zendaya (who isn’t a stranger to making headlines when appearing on magazine covers) makes her Allure debut photographed by Jason Kibbler. The 20-year-old works soaking wet hair, a vivid pink lip and a vibrant silk Christian Dior dress while posing under the warm Malibu sunshine.

But everything from the styling to the photography was just too much for our tastes. “Oh dear…” sighed KissMiss the second the cover came to light.

“It is beyond me how they managed to turn such a fierce young woman into a total snoozefest. Zendaya usually oozes attitude, what happened?” questioned a horrified dodencebt. (more…)

Irina Shayk, Joan Smalls and Stella Maxwell Go Topless for Replay’s New Campaign

The fashion community continues to embrace Irina Shayk and one of the latest gigs for the Russian bombshell (aside from starring in the Spring 2017 Alberta Ferretti campaign) includes being the face of Replay. She has appeared on the cover of Vogue Russia, Vogue Germany and Vogue Japan this year and tops it off by fronting Replay’s new #TouchIt advertising campaign. Photographed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, Irina and fellow beauties Joan Smalls and Stella Maxwell go topless, wearing nothing but the Italian brand’s denim.

Our forum members weren’t feeling it, however. “What was the point of paying a bucket of money to Mert & Marcus for a basic campaign with awful lighting? They got scammed,” laughed a disapproving Marc10 the moment the campaign dropped.

“Co-signed. What was their creative team thinking?” replied Street_a_Licious in agreement. (more…)

Lineisy Montero Makes Her Long-Overdue Vogue Debut for Vogue Turkey

Vogue Turkey had a perfectly satisfactory 2016, delivering the likes of Bella Hadid, Lara Stone and Kendall Jenner, but there was a serious lack of diversity on its covers. Thankfully, the year wasn’t a total (white)wash as the magazine goes out on a high featuring Lineisy Montero on the December issue. The “catwalk queen” makes her long-awaited Vogue cover debut wearing Elie Saab, photographed by Katja Rahlwes.

Having a wonderful cover subject is one thing, but did Vogue Turkey successfully pull off the shoot? Our forums are divided. “I like the styling, color scheme and layout but her expression annoys me for some reason — makes me want to slap the pretentious smirk off her face,” wrote kokobombon.

“Please don’t, she’s got only one expression as it is. This is Lineisy’s first Vogue cover, and while I’m glad for her, her print presence is still positively unremarkable. It may as well be a mannequin we see here,” Benn98 added. (more…)
