Model Ellen Rosa Lands Her First Solo Vogue Cover for Vogue Brazil

You have to applaud magazines likeVogue Brazil that regularly champion homegrown talent. The magazine loves a good Gisele Bündchen cover appearance and recently served up a picture perfect Lais Ribeiro cover. The latest Brazilian model to grace the cover is Ellen Rosa, who makes her debut for April 2017. Photographed by Giampaolo Sgura, the current face of Miu Miu delivers two unique covers for our forums to deliberate over this month.

According to our forums, one cover most definitely trumped the other. “Oh dear. That first cover (above) is just wrong on so many levels. Ellen has yet to impress me in print, but come on… this is like a bad joke. From the styling to the colors to her pose and expression. Second one (below) is better, because her face is one in a million, but still drab as hell,” slammed myran the moment both covers appeared.

“Yes, yes, and yes! Neither cover works for me. The first cover highlight the butchering of that splendid collection with her slouchy pose. Then you add to the fact that she’s simply no oil painting, so the beauty cover is a miss for me as well,” stated Benn98. (more…)

tFS Forum Members Hate the New Louis Vuitton x Jeff Koons Campaign Almost as Much as the Collection

Louis Vuitton’s latest collaboration with world-renowned American artist Jeff Koons has been met with mixed reviews. Some describe it as “a joyous art history lesson” while others liken it to “a souvenir bag from a museum gift shop.” Our forum members weren’t quite as kind. Still, the sure-to-wind-up-on-eBay collection is likely to find many fans amongst the fashion set. The new campaign promoting the Vuitton x Koons collection stars Nicolas Ghesquière’s muse Alicia Vikander, captured by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott.

Our forum members seemed to like the campaign about as much as they liked the collection. “A boring actress and tacky looking bags, what a disaster for LV,” exclaimed a horrified liberty33r1b.

“I still don’t understand why they try to make Alicia happen, to me she’s so weak,” echoed an underwhelmed badgalcrush. (more…)

Despite a Pleasant Liu Wen Cover, tFS Forum Members Blast Vogue China for Hiring Terry Richardson

Our forums were engulfed in a heated debate when controversial photographer Terry Richardson shot Porter‘s current cover and now he’s back again, shooting for Vogue China. Once a forum favorite, the Chinese fashion bible has fallen short lately, including last month’s disappointing Bella Hadid cover. For May 2017, the magazine welcomes back familiar face Liu Wen, who serves up a fairly pleasant cover image wearing head-to-toe Gucci.

Members of our forums weren’t afraid to call out the magazine. “A Vogue cover by Terry Richardson? What’s wrong with the EIC of Vogue China” questioned a frustrated OllieJE.

“Shame on you for using Terry! And the result is just as bad,” noticed Nymphaea. (more…)

With her delightful cover of Porter still fresh in our minds and the memory of her electrifying smile on British Vogue back in 2015, it’s no wonder we were thrilled to see Sienna Miller on the cover of the May 2017 issue of Allure.

Forum members had nothing but praise for Sienna. “Holy smoke!! This is so breathtakingly good, it will certainly draw you in. Will definitely be getting this issue as I’m interested to hear what she’s got to say. I like the fact that the image is understated, yet so sleek and chic,” Benn98 commented the moment the cover dropped.

“This really is a perfect Allure cover!” said a delighted Miss Dalloway. (more…)

Vittoria Ceretti Plays the Blushing Bride on Vogue Paris’ Disappointing May Cover

For someone who’s fairly new to the scene, Vittoria Ceretti continues to blossom in the world of modeling. She made the cover of Vogue‘s big spring issue this year, regularly delights before the lens of Steven Meisel and is the face of Chanel’s latest collection. Now, the Italian beauty lands the cover of Vogue Paris, posing for Mario Testino and playing the role of a blushing bride wearing white laced Alexander McQueen.

Unfortunately, the cover disappointed the vast majority of our forum members. “Not what I was expecting at all! I actually like the dreamy and soft factor of the image, it’s something I haven’t seen from VP in years. But her face is too obscured, and that hideous belt which lends nothing to the styling!” said Benn98.

“Beautiful and great for her. But this does feel like an editorial opening shot. Not a cover image!!” pointed out Miss Dalloway. (more…)

Kendall Jenner Does 60s Housewife on the May Cover of Harper’s Bazaar

If Harper’s Bazaar hasn’t made it clear, this year marks its milestone 150th anniversary and to celebrate, the title has been going all-out with Madonna, Rihanna and Paris Jackson cover shoots. Now, Kendall Jenner appears on the newly-unveiled May 2017 cover looking vibrant in red La Perla (for which she’s the face of this season) in a decidedly retro-looking image. Channeling the work of photographer Richard Avedon throughout the cover shoot, Kendall was shot by Camilla Akrans with heavy-handed styling by Tom Van Dorpe.

Once the cover broke, our forum members couldn’t wait to weigh in. “Harper’s Bazaar is obsessed with playing with Kendall Jenner’s hair while wearing red lipstick. This is tragic. Those brows are hideous. The right one seems like it was Photoshopped on. Is she a senator/governor’s wife during the 60s? Why can’t they have a Kendall cover without a gimmick?” questioned MON.

“She’s not strong enough a model to pull something like a straight-on beauty shot. Her face looks smooshed together and that hair is atrocious,” added ash92. (more…)
