Meryl Streep’s December Cover of Vogue: Divine or Disappointing?

Your favorite fashion glossies are currently pulling out all the stops as 2017 slowly comes to an end and American Vogue serves up the divine Meryl Streep as its December cover star. The magazine has been celebrating its monumental 125th anniversary since March and the celebrations come to an end with a new ‘Then & Now’ themed issue. Who better than Vogue regular Annie Leibovitz to capture the 68-year-old actress for the occasion? Participating in one of Leibovitz’s signature studio shoots, Meryl looks effortless and at ease in the warm and inviting portrait cover image, wearing a Michael Kors Collection blouse and khaki green trousers.

At first, our forum members were in awe. “Beautifully unexpected to see Meryl on the cover. I don’t remember them ever having a woman her age on the cover, love it,” commented Miss Dalloway straight away.

“I think when you have such a larger-than-life legend like Meryl on a cover, you really don’t need big styling and production. Just a good portrait and she sells the whole thing by herself. And that’s what they did right here. It’s a perfect December cover,” admired Marc10. (more…)

Emily DiDonato’s November Cover of Vogue Turkey Is *Almost* Perfect

While we try to erase Vogue Turkey’s October cover from memory, the title’s November issue hits newsstands with a (much-improved) holiday-appropriate cover starring Emily DiDonato. Adding to her impressive track record of strong Vogue covers, the model delivers all the glitz and glamour we require this time of year. The American beauty poses in a Chanel dress with a bold red lip and diamond jewelry, shot in front of the bright lights of the New York City skyline by Miguel Reveriego.

For most of our forums members, however, something seemed a little… off. “Emily’s beauty does not shine here. Her lower face and neck look too tense which ruins the otherwise good cover,” evaluated gazebo upon seeing the cover.

“Not the best angle for that beautiful face,” chimed in tigerrouge. (more…)

Ruth Negga, Kate Winslet and Jodie Foster Star on the Delightful December Covers of British Harper’s Bazaar

‘Women of the Year’ issues have become all the rage toward the end of 2017. First, Glamour produced its multi-cover edition and now British Harper’s Bazaar is following suit. For the December issue, Bazaar delivers three striking covers for us to deliberate over. Actresses Ruth Negga, Kate Winslet and Jodie Foster help the magazine close out 2017 on a high, while each competing for best cover on our forums.

“Wow, what a nice surprise! They’re not known to do multi-covers, and promote their ‘Women of the Year’ like this. Great move! I’ll be getting Ruth’s cover, but I must say the Jodie one looks rather special as well. Overall all three covers are splendid,” applauded tFS forum member Benn98 upon seeing the covers.

“Ruth is glowing. Fantastic cover,” admired mistress_f. (more…)

Despite an All-Star Cast, Miu Miu’s Cruise 2018 Campaign Feels Irrelevant

Over recent seasons, tFS forum members have complained that Miu Miu’s advertising campaigns aren’t what they used to be. Proof? Not even the likes of Naomie Harris and Kate Moss could save the Fall 2017 campaign. The brand’s offering for Cruise 2018 just dropped and, despite impressive casting that includes Elle Fanning, Anna Ewers, Doutzen Kroes, Joan Smalls, Kesewa Aboah, Lily Nova and Slick Woods, the images fall flat. Photographed by Alasdair McLellan with Katie Grand in charge of styling, the crew headed to a race track in Montlhéry, France to lens the series of vibrant images, which ultimately failed to win over our forum members.

“The theme doesn’t work, the photography doesn’t, neither does the terrible, terrible model casting. All on Katie Grand, I’m sure. The passé Doutzen, Anna, Joan, a new yet incredibly dull and lesser Aboah, rounded out by Slick Woods. Surprised not to see Kendall here. Perhaps Miuccia [Prada] won’t have her,” wrote a disapproving Benn98 upon checking out the campaign.

“Miu Miu, once my favorite brand, has become so irrelevant. Irrelevant models, irrelevant campaigns. Katie ruined everything. Fire her please,” pleased anlabe32. (more…)

Edward Enninful’s First British Vogue Cover Is Finally Here — and It’s Stunning!

The wait is over: Edward Enninful’s debut cover as editor-in-chief of British Vogue is here. Ever since Condé Nast announced his appointment back in April, our forums have been rife with speculation as to who might score the December cover — and we called it. Fronting the newly unveiled (and utterly divine) cover is model-of-the-moment Adwoa Aboah. In addition to the wonderful casting, the legendary Steven Meisel came on board to photograph the cover story with Enninful himself taking up the role as stylist. In the electrifying, vintage-inspired cover image, the current face of Marc Jacobs Beauty wears a look from Jacobs’ Spring 2018 collection.

Our forums erupted with excitement. “This is so beautiful. It looks like a vintage cover but there is something so fresh about it. Adwoa looks so glamorous! The colors, the lighting, the framing and the styling are all gorgeous; everything works perfectly together,” applauded LastNight.

“I love this! It looks so vintage and GLAM!” praised Khabeer. (more…)

Diane Kruger’s Vogue Germany Cover for December Is ALMOST Flawless

Vogue Germany has been pretty solid throughout 2017, producing a series of strong covers featuring the likes of Saskia de Brauw, Christy Turlington and Vittoria Ceretti (we’re willing to overlook the Claudia Schiffer disaster in September). The magazine closes out the year on a high note, giving us exactly what we crave for a December cover: glamour, style and a touch of festivity. Diane Kruger makes a return to the title, three years after her last cover, and receives the full Luigi & Iango treatment. Serving extremely good face, the actress wears a glitzy feathered and embellished Alexander McQueen number.

The cover ultimately received mixed feedback from our forum members. “Easily her best cover, out of the four she has done for them. Stunning,” declared Miss Dalloway immediately after seeing the cover.

“Stunning! I can feel the festive vibe,” added IndigoHomme. (more…)
