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…)

There’s Something Off With Jennifer Lopez’s Harper’s Bazaar Cover for April

We love when someone unexpected appears on the cover of our favorite fashion glossies and, despite what you may think, Jennifer Lopez can be a rare sight at the newsstand. J.Lo’s last notable solo cover was for W Magazine back in 2016, but Harper’s Bazaar just made her its cover girl for April 2018. Shot by Mariano Vivanco, Jennifer was photoshopped photographed on location on a rooftop in downtown Los Angeles at sunset, wearing a vivid pink Oscar de la Renta gown and sporting a soft and sultry makeup look in the newsstand cover image (below).

But something seems seriously off, according to our forum members. “Jennifer Lopez and US Bazaar should be a great match. But what’s with the odd cover shot — this less-than-glamorous neck twist? Did they try to capture her mid-movement?” questioned tigerrouge the moment the cover struck.

“I instantly liked this! Yet on closer inspection, Jennifer’s mouth area looks really off in the shot, as does the jawline and cheek area. They’ve clearly gone OTT post-production (again),” vogue28 noted.

Eva Herzigova Poses on Vogue Poland’s Laid-Back April Cover

The inaugural cover of Vogue Poland featuring Anja Rubik and Malgosia Bela failed to excite the majority of our forum members when it debuted last month. The publication now gives up its April 2018 cover to model Eva Herzigova, whose last Vogue cover appearance was back in 2014. Four years later, Eva shows us what we’ve been missing in the laid-back cover image photographed by Chris Colls. The Czech looks effortless and comfortable wearing jeans and a sweater while reclining on a leather sofa.

Once again, the magazine pulled in mixed feedback. “OK well this is just lazy and uninspired,” pointed out lelaid the moment the cover dropped.

“Pretty shot but not Vogue-worthy, it’s literally and figuratively lazy. It needs more tension/excitement,” noted Nymphaea. (more…)

Kendall Jenner Just Landed Her Third US Vogue Cover, Posing With a Cockatoo

Our forums had concocted a theory that either Beyoncé or Rihanna would land this month’s cover, but Vogue threw us a curveball by featuring Kendall Jenner for the third time. The model, who’s currently on the cover of Vogue Korea and the face of Missioni this season, fronts the magazine’s April 2018 edition and, just like her first American Vogue appearance, is captured by photographic duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott. In the soft and romantic cover image (below), Kendall was styled by Tonne Goodman in Chanel Haute Couture — complete with an exotic bird perched on her finger.

Apparently, the third time isn’t a charm for some of our forum members. “Oh, come on Anna, just give the cover to Anna Ewers or Grace Elizabeth. How much does it take to have a REAL model on the cover? When was the last one? I can’t even remember,” ranted StockholmFW.

“SERIOUSLY? Why, how even!! Are Vogue readers even slightly interested in her? I am so not and it’s not even a good cover, I’ve seen her shot better than this!” slammed Miss Dalloway. (more…)
