Jessica Chastain’s Vogue Spain Cover Is an Odd Choice for June

After a drop-dead gorgeous cover last month starring model Grace Elizabeth, Vogue Spain shied away from models this month by featuring actress Jessica Chastain as its June 2017 cover girl. Photographed by Mario Sorrenti, the cover drew mixed reviews from tFS forum members, many of whom felt the cover shot was unflattering and too dark for June.

“What a random choice of cover star and photographer. Is this sponsored? W Magazine is this you?” questioned a dumbfounded MON the moment the cover struck.

“What? You have Mario and Jessica, and this is it? They could do so much better, as could the new EIC, not impressed with her work so far! And this is June, come on!” Miss Dalloway protested. (more…)

Doutzen Kroes Stars on a Duo of Covers for Vogue Ukraine June 2017

Vogue Ukraine isn’t letting standards slip as it unveils a duo of covers for June 2017. Photographer Chris Colls, who deserves much of the credit for recent successful covers starring the likes of Anja Rubik and Amber Valletta, gives us another strong series of images with Doutzen Kroes for Vogue Ukraine’s latest. Shot on location in Miami, the Dutch beauty participates in a beach photoshoot with hairstylist Oribe Canales even making an appearance in the black and white cover (below).

Members of our forums weren’t exactly jumping for joy over the two covers, however. “I like the second cover (below), it’s perfectly captured for June. The art direction is too overbearing, something simple was needed. But I’m sure the editorial will be solid. That said, I am a bit over Doutzen looking ‘vulnerable’, it’s becoming very contrived,” voiced Benn98.

“I like the cover photos, the horrible yellow font (not talking about the yellow Vogue logo here)… not as much,” added StockholmFW. (more…)

Karlie Kloss Is So Much Better Than This Waste of a Vogue China Cover

Our forums have been rather hard on Vogue China lately. After a knockout March cover with Gigi Hadid, sister Bella Hadid looked odd and lifeless on the title’s April issue, followed by a Terry Richardson-shot cover for May (a major misstep in our book). Now, fresh from the cover of InStyle, Karlie Kloss adds the cover of Chinese Vogue to her impressive portfolio of work, appearing on the June 2017 cover, captured by photographer Roe Ethridge.

Unlike most other Karlie Kloss cover appearances, our forums weren’t buying this one. “Really just OK and inoffensive, there’s nothing special here. Quite mediocre. Also, it may be time for Karlie to start toning down her cover appearances,” voiced an underwhelmed Benn98.

“I’m sorry it looks like a cheap version of Marie Claire or ELLE China. There´s no edge or sense of high fashion. Karlie is a great model but this cover does nothing for me,” critiqued a disapproving Bertrando3. (more…)

Saskia de Brauw’s Vogue Germany Cover Is the Perfect Blend of Hard and Soft

After giving us a trio of covers for two months running, Vogue Germany has decided on just one stunning cover for June 2017. Dutch beauty Saskia de Brauw graces the magazine for her third time, looking ethereal in pink fluffy Prada. Appearing before a stark white background, Saskia works a minimal makeup look complemented by a sleek cropped hairstyle while posing for photographer Daniel Jackson.

The hairstyle, however, proved too much for a few of our forum members. “Don’t like the hair, but do love everything else!” confessed KateTheGreatest the second the cover struck.

“Yeah that hair is tragic!!! But otherwise it’s OK,” added Miss Dalloway. (more…)

Kendall Jenner Returns for La Perla’s New Ad Campaign for Fall 2017

She was the face of La Perla’s ad campaign last season, wore La Perla to this year’s Met Gala and donned a silk romper by the label on the May cover of Harper’s Bazaar, so it’s hardly a surprise to see Kendall Jenner return for the Italian lingerie brand’s new campaign for Fall 2017. Kendall was shot by photographic duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott for the colorful new ads, which quickly became the topic of conversation on our forums.

Our forum members just couldn’t contain their despair. “New level of cheap,” declared dontbeadrag the minute the campaign images came to light.

“I just feel bad for these campaigns because they feel like such a waste! imagine if this was Joan Smalls, Jourdan Dunn, or Anais Mali,” sighed xoxoadore in disbelief. (more…)

Paris Jackson Makes the Cover of Teen Vogue’s Music Issue and Our Forums Are Not Having It

Everyone seems to be obsessed with Paris Jackson right now. Carine Roitfeld featured her on the cover of CR Fashion Book, as did US Harper’s Bazaar, and last week it was announced that the 19-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson landed a multimillion-dollar deal with Calvin Klein. Paris now takes to the cover of Teen Vogue‘s music issue for Volume 2 of its recent redesign, photographed by Hedi Slimane.

Members of our forums weren’t impressed. “This kid is everywhere,” complained a disinterested HodanChloe.

“Despite her age… does Paris really appeal to a teen audience? The interest in her ties with her father and the majority of his fans I would fathom are a lot older than Teen Vogue‘s demographic,” wrote A.D.C. (more…)
