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.

Our forum members couldn’t believe their eyes. “Lovely to see her back, didn’t expect this. But the Photoshop, oh my!” pointed out Nymphaea the moment the campaign came to light.

“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…)

Bella Hadid Channels Dolly Parton in DSquared2’s Western-Inspired Fall 2018 Campaign

The Fall 2018 season sure is looking bright for Bella Hadid. After walking 14 shows during fashion month, Bella now sets her sights on ad campaigns for the upcoming season and her first conquest is DSqaured2. Shot on location in a motel room by photographic duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, Bella seems to channel country music icon Dolly Parton with her mass of voluminous hair as she participates in the western-inspired shoot.

At least some of our forum members were fans of the campaign. “Dolly Parton much? This has Katie Grand written all over this with the gimmicks. But I don’t actually hate it,” confessed FadeToBlack.

“Bella’s usual vacant expression is perfect for this,” forum member mikel admitted.

Vogue Australia’s Attempt at Diversity Falls Flat

Ever since our forums got wind of Vogue Australia’s “diversity” cover shoot back in December, we’ve been waiting in suspense for it to drop. The outcome is finally here, arriving in the form of the magazine’s April 2018 cover. Photographed by Patrick Demarchelier (really, Vogue?), the magazine finally joins the 21st century and embraces diversity with models Fernanda Ly, Akiima, Charlee Fraser and Andreja Pejic. The group comes together, “uniting Australian fashion” while wearing head-to-toe Celine, styled by Christine Centenera.

Our forum members were not impressed with the effort. “They have absolutely no chemistry between them, whatsoever. And I have no interest in this,” voiced KateTheGreatest the second the cover came to light.

“This is good enough for one of the ANTM show challenges…” pointed out KissMiss.

“This wouldn’t be the first cover that treats the demand for diversity as a tick-box exercise,” tigerrouge chimed in. (more…)

Where’s the Spirit in Emma Stone’s Louis Vuitton ‘Spirit of Travel’ Campaign?

If you haven’t heard already, Emma Stone is Louis Vuitton’s latest brand ambassador, becoming Nicolas Ghesquière‘s newest muse and clothes horse. The first major outing from the actress as the face of the legendary French fashion house arrives in the form of the new ‘Spirit of Travel’ campaign for 2018, photographed by Craig McDean. Giving Alicia Vikander the push, Emma ventured out into the California desert for the shoot, roaming around a large purpose-built V monument with the rugged landscape making for a nice contrast against Vuitton’s luxurious Capucine handbags.

Unfortunately, our forum members weren’t too impressed. “Coach? Calvin Klein?” asked Conbothsides, suggesting the campaign didn’t look or feel on-brand.

“Coach + Calvin Klein = Louis Vuitton. Seriously though, this is so uninspiring it puts me to sleep. I remember those Annie’s shots which actually sent me somewhere but my bed. The images are fine. But for a brand that is Louis Vuitton, I expect more,” voiced TaylorBinque. (more…)
