Bella Hadid Starts 2018 With Two Gorgeous Vogue Korea Covers

If you thought Bella Hadid couldn’t top her wildly successful 2017, it looks like 2018 is going to be just as busy as she begins the new year with a set of Vogue Korea covers under her belt. For the publication’s January 2018 edition, Bella proves she’s the perfect choice for Christian Dior Cosmetics with her flawless complexion and intense stare on a duo of close-up portrait images photographed by Ahn Jooyoung.

The covers generated a mixture of feedback from our forum members. “Having a pretty face doesn’t make you a good model. She can’t emote nor model. And what’s with the art direction,” quipped TaylorBinque the second the covers dropped.

Expressing the same sort of sentiments was Nomar. “Forget about the lackluster expressions, look at that horrendous typography,” he pointed out. (more…)

Emily DiDonato Is Perfect on Vogue Thailand’s December Cover

Vogue Thailand typically flies under the radar on our forums, despite managing to score the likes of Lily Aldridge, Rosie Huntington-Whitley and Kate Upton as cover girls. Emily DiDonato, who recently graced Vogue Turkey, helps the magazine close out 2017 on a high. Emily looks radiant and fresh in the cover shot wearing Gucci, photographed in the studio by Natth Jaturapahu.

Our forum members were here for it. “YAYYY!!! So happy to see Emily. This does just look like a re-used Maybelline ad but gorgeous nonetheless. I can never get enough of that face,” wrote an elated Bobby153 the moment the cover struck.

“So colorful and cute — and she looks like an actual person rather than an airbrushed flat outline,” tigerrouge admired. (more…)

Karolina Kurkova’s Cover of ELLE Russia Gives Us Major 2000-Era Flashbacks

The last time ELLE Russia got our attention was when Bella Hadid starred on the September cover. Now, it’s Karolina Kurkova making us take notice of the newly unveiled January 2018 cover. Long-term ELLE collaborator Gilles Bensimon photographed the blonde beauty, who gives it her all for the striking newsstand cover and throughout the entire cover editorial. In the image, Karolina cozies up in a fluffy Miu Miu coat and Versace shades, giving us major flashbacks to the 2000s.

Our forum members were thrilled with the cover. “ELLE Russia is much better than Vogue Russia. Ekaterina Mukhina and Vadim Galaganov always do a great job. This team is fabulous,” commented ciaoherrero.

“Right? Mukhina is actually one of those few persons who are trying to save Russian fashion,” agreed christian zh. (more…)

Sara Sampaio Defines the Peter Dundas Woman in His First Namesake Campaign

If you haven’t already heard, Peter Dundas launched his own eponymous brand in July with a debut collection for Resort 2018. The advertising campaign for the collection just dropped, featuring a sultry Sara Sampaio. Dundas enlisted photographers Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott to capture his vision for the brand with a mysterious, sensual campaign featuring the Portuguese beauty posing amid a dark and moody setting while showing off Dundas’ creations.

Our forums weren’t feeling it, unfortunately. “It sure is impactful but it is also a bit dated,” commented Lola701 upon seeing the campaign images for the first time. “Too early/mid 00s, and we have the clothes to blame for it.”

“What can I say. I didn’t expect it to look classy with Dundas, M&M and Sara involved but this is just very cheap,” disapproved anlabe32. (more…)

Lupita Nyong’o Shows off Her Balancing Act on the January Cover of Vogue

Anna Wintour has made it clear over the years that she’s a huge admirer of Lupita Nyong’o. As a result, we’re not too surprised to see the actress back on the cover of the magazine for January 2018. Giving us the polar opposite of last month‘s studio shoot, Lupita shows off her yoga skills while standing on a surfboard in the water. Shot by Mikael Jansson, Lupita was styled by Tonne Goodman who selected a (non-waterproof) silver embellished Christian Dior bodysuit and skirt.

The cover reminded our forum members of another yoga-inspired Vogue shoot. “Man oh man. All I can think of is how great Christy Turlington’s yoga [Vogue October 2002] cover was,” voiced A.D.C.

“Christy Turlington’s yoga cover was divine, such a shame we would never see that kind of cover anymore,” added chanelh. (more…)
