Lexi Boling and Jordan Barrett Star in the Dull Versace Jeans Campaign for Spring 2017

Photographers Luigi & Iango have been killing it lately with their flawless Vogue Japan covers over the past three months. Therefore, our forums were expecting even more greatness with the unveiling of their new Versace Jeans campaign for Spring 2017. Models Lexi Boling and Jordan Barrett were selected for the studio shoot, which unfortunately resulted in a series of dull and mediocre black and white images.

To say our forums were let down is an understatement. “Jordan out of all people? Both of them look so bored to me,” Scotty complained the moment the campaign came to light, setting the tone for commentary to follow.

“This is a big mess. Gosh it looks awful! The models, the poses, the styling. Nope! NEXT!” added a far from impressed Bertrando3. (more…)

Lottie Moss Stars in Chanel’s Youthful Eyewear Campaign for Spring 2017

Lottie Moss has had plenty experience posing for the likes of Vogue Paris, Harper’s Bazaar Russia, Calvin Klein and Bvlgari. Considering half-sister Kate Moss‘ history with both Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld, it should come as no surprise that the 19-year-old was Lagerfeld’s choice to follow in the footsteps of Willow Smith, Lily-Rose Depp and Kristen Stewart for his new Chanel eyewear campaign.

Lottie’s latest has left our forums divided. “Chanel has the ugliest eyewear of all brands! My gawd, they are really cheap looking 99% of the times. Whoever is in charge of it should get fired,” proclaimed a far from impressed Creative.

“Just no,” stated an uninterested 333101. (more…)

Vogue Italia Fans Aren’t Here for Franca Sozzani’s Final Issue Featuring Madonna

February marks Franca Sozzani’s final issue of Vogue Italia since her unfortunate passing back in December and we’ve been anxiously awaiting its unveiling. Forum members expected to see photographer Steven Meisel steal the spotlight or a whole host of models on the cover.

Valentina Sampaio Is Vogue Paris’ First Transgender Cover Girl

Our forums are huge advocates of diversity in the industry, so it comes as no surprise that we are all thrilled to see a transgender model on the cover of a major international fashion magazine. Valentina Sampaio makes history by becoming the first-ever transgender woman to grace the cover of Vogue, posing on the March 2017 issue of Vogue Paris. Emmanuelle Alt selected photographic duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott to capture the Brazilian beauty who wears Saint Laurent and looks every inch the supermodel in the electrifying cover image.

Natalia Vodianova Doesn’t Look Very Happy to Be on Porter’s Spring 2017 Cover

Our forums have been big supporters of Porter since the beginning, rooting for the magazine and its ability to deliver terrific covers and content with each issue. Yet lately, the magazine has let standards slip, publishing a series of underwhelming covers. Now, exactly two years after her last appearance, Natalia Vodianova makes a return to the cover for Porter‘s Spring 2017 edition. Shot by Cass Bird, the Russian supermodel looks glum in the dark and moody image, which our forum members picked up on immediately.

Forum members simply weren’t feeling it. “Hate the styling with the corset and I can’t help but feel it’s a rather somber image for spring. For me, Porter hasn’t been smashing it out of the park with their covers quite like they used to lately. This is a little flat and sad for me,” said honeycombchild straight away.

“Another letdown cover from Porter, what is going on there!!” exclaimed an underwhelmed MissDalloway. (more…)
