Winnie Harlow Does ‘Quintessential ELLE’ for UK ELLE’s May Issue

UK ELLE earns high points for regularly embracing a diverse range of cover subjects (more so than other magazines, at least). Following a less than impressive Alicia Vikander cover last month, model Winnie Harlow stars on the publication’s May cover. Powering on through with its redesign, British ELLE‘s Anne-Marie Curtis commissioned long-term ELLE contributor Gilles Bensimon to photograph the cover this month. The team ventured to Thailand for the occasion, shooting Winnie in Gucci for two vibrant, glam rock-inspired covers.

Our forum members were instantly impressed. “Expected to hate it, but it looks great, actually!” confessed Benn98 the moment the covers came to light. “Glad to see they’re back to the redesign direction, and I like the composition.”

“Love love those oblique 80s style fonts… classic ELLE!” heralded kasper. (more…)

A Bronzed Anna Ewers Takes to the Cover of Vogue Paris for a Fifth Time

Every magazine has its tried and tested cover girl and Anna Ewers is most definitely a firm favorite of Vogue Paris. The German beauty makes a triumphant return to the cover of the French fashion bible for May 2018, which marks Anna’s landmark 20th Vogue cover appearance. You can’t blame Emmanuelle Alt for bringing back the blonde bombshell for the fifth time since she’s one of the magazine’s best-selling cover models (and we have the sales figures to prove it). Photographed by Mikael Jansson, Anna transports us to the sandy shores of Mauritius wearing an embellished denim Gucci jacket, tousled hair and a bronzed complexion — bring on summer!

Our forum members wasted no time voicing their opinions on the cover. “This feels like the good old VP, for me. Love, almost, everything, they could have used less bronze on her though!! Carré Otis she is NOT!” voiced Miss Dalloway straight away.

“I actually thought it was Carré Otis,” added Bertrando3. “I like this cover of Vogue Paris for once!” (more…)

Karlie Kloss Is a Victim of Bad Styling on Vogue Thailand’s April Cover

We love to see Karlie Kloss on the cover of our favorite fashion glossies. The all-American model has a total of 38 Vogue covers in her portfolio and she now scores her 39th with the April 2018 issue of Vogue Thailand. The last time the magazine took our fancy was with a perfect Emily DiDonato offering but its latest cover has received attention for all the wrong reasons. Following a disappointing cover for Porter’s summer issue, Karlie’s newest Vogue cover, shot by Russell James, received some backlash in our forums.

Our forum members weren’t afraid to call out the magazine and everyone involved. “Trying to be a sultry sex bomb, not working,” stated Nymphaea the moment the cover struck.

“Nothing works here, and the hair is the worst,” KateTheGreatest added.

“The hair doesn’t suit her. And the neck scarf can definitely go as well. I think the shot would’ve been better outdoors,” voiced Benn98. (more…)

Charlize Theron Wears Couture on the Beach for US ELLE’s Questionable May Cover

Nina Garcia’s feet are now firmly under the EIC’s desk at US ELLE and she continues to attract heavyweight cover subjects. We got Angelina Jolie for March, Kim Kardashian for April and now May goes to Charlize Theron. (It’s hard to believe Charlize’s last cover for the magazine was way back in June 2003.) Shot on Malibu beachby master fashion photographer Mario Sorrenti, the actress sports a swimsuit paired with a full-length fringed Christian Dior Haute Couture coat — everyone’s go-to beach look, right? — styled byGeorge Cortina.

Almost immediately, our eagle-eyed forum members sensed something was off. “That’s the best photo and tagline they could come up with? Exactly why I haven’t bought US ELLE in years,” said KateIsGr8.

“She’s normally very photogenic, but this is certainly one of her worst covers. Not her fault though. Why was it taken from that angle? And with the cape?” wondered Benn98. (more…)

Kaia Gerber Stars on i-D Magazine’s Lackluster Summer Cover

After another solid runway season for Fall 2018, Kaia Gerber continues to add an impressive body of work to her ever-growing portfolio. Following covers for Vogue Paris, Love Magazine and an advertising campaign for none other than Chanel, the promising 16-year-old now stars on the cover of i-D Magazine. The publication did our forums proud with the last issue’s diverse cast and series of inspiring covers. Going all out once again, i-D taps the mini-me of Cindy Crawford for Summer 2018’s ‘Super Youth’ issue, photographed by Mario Sorrenti wearing Gucci.

Despite the magazine’s best efforts at profiling Kaia, our forum members weren’t into it. “I like the idea of Kaia for i-D but the cover looks very Instagram-like. I don’t think the effortless vibe works enough to elevate these images the way they intended. Perhaps with better styling,” quipped dodencebt.

“Snore. The bare minimum of effort was put into this,” exclaimed 333101. (more…)

Gigi Hadid Gives Good Face on Her Third Cover of Harper’s Bazaar

Harper’s Bazaar sure loves to recycle its cover stars and welcomes back newsstand gold Gigi Hadid for the third time, less than twelve months after the American beauty’s last. And it’s no surprise considering Gigi’s previous Bazaar appearance was the publication’s best selling issue of the year. The team hasn’t changed much this time around either, with photographer and current Glenda Bailey favorite Mariano Vivanco also making a comeback. For the newsstand cover (below), Gigi serves good face, looking ravishing in red Versace, and is joined by a canine friend while wearing Chanel for the limited cover sent out to subscribers (after the jump).

Most of our forum members were impressed with the covers. “I don’t expect a huge amount from US Bazaar, but the newsstand cover delivers on what I do – generic beauty and glamour,” said a perfectly content tigerrougue.

“Love the whole thing, great covers and editorial,” TeeVanity wrote.

“She looks gorgeous on the close-ups, exactly what I would expect from a beauty issue,” kokobombon added. (more…)
