While Marie Claire may not be our go-to fashion glossy right now, the magazine manages to secure big names, with the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Priyanka Chopra and Gal Gadot gracing covers this year. For July 2017, a demure and elegant looking Chrissy Teigen wears Gucci in the great outdoors for Marie Claire‘s first-ever wellness issue, photographed by Michelangelo di Battista.

Our forum members liked what they saw on the cover. “Wow, I like this! They may have gone for a very busy dress yet again, but the setting and ease of it all more than makes up for it. A very interesting yet different cover for US Marie Claire. Not a fan of Chrissy Teigen though. How she’s managed to get all these covers with no tangible career is beyond me,” said Benn98.
“I’m wondering the same. I only know her for her Sports Illustrated work and I ask myself is she even relevant, but I guess the U.S. readers like her. Anyway, it’s an OK cover to me. Nice execution but nothing much,” replied badgalcrush. (more…)
Hailey Baldwin made the cover of American ELLE back in May and recently topped Maxim‘s Hot 100 list last month (scoring the title’s June/July 2017 cover in the process). Now, she crosses the pond and adds a cover appearance for British ELLE to her solid portfolio of work. Photographed by Gilles Bensimon, the American beauty dons a leather Coach jacket, styled by Anne-Marie Curtis.
Forum member Benn98 commented moments after the cover was revealed earlier today. “Wow, she’s really rising up! The cover looks fine for ELLE, and I think she looks beautiful here. The rich colors are more suited to autumn though. Also, not overfond of the styling, which looks more like her candid style than anything else,” he noted.
“Surprisingly, I really like this! It’s a great cover for ELLE. The styling isn’t very appropriate though,” echoed forum member apple. (more…)
American Vogue is known for recycling the same old cover stars, but the fashion bible seems to be expanding its horizons this year with a series of first-time cover subjects. Selena Gomez unexpectedly turned up for April, while last month’s surprise was actress Elle Fanning. And now, Vogue has just unveiled a glorious Zendaya cover for July 2017. Photographed by Mario Testino and styled by Tonne Goodman, the singer/actress and all-around cool girl wears Calvin Klein in the delightful cover image.

Our forum members were thrilled with the cover. “Beautiful, and such an unexpected cover choice. [Anna] Wintour is going really young this year, wow. I like it!” approved Miss Dalloway at once.
“Beautiful, Anna’s choice of cover girls are getting unexpected. I never thought Zendaya would ever get a Vogue cover,” wrote a pleasantly surprised MDNA. (more…)
Vogue Portugal continues to take the industry (and our forums) by storm. The magazine secured forum favorite Malgosia Bela for April, gave Hanne Gaby Odiele the cover for June and now serves up Lindsey Wixson as its cover girl for July 2017. The current face of Dior Beauty vamps it up in the edgy and unconventional image, photographed on location in New York by Portuguese Vogue regular An Le.
Members of our forums continue to applaud the magazine’s efforts. “Vogue Portugal is definitely stepping up their game lately! This is one stunning cover and Lindsey really adds something here,” raved Style Savvy.
“Love the cover, and love that Vogue Portugal is continually breaking the mold. Lindsey works best with thematic settings, and I’m keen to see how this idea expanded to an editorial!” said Benn98. (more…)
Alberta Ferretti tapped Steven Meisel to capture the Spring 2017 campaign last season but opted to hire photographer Tim Walker for Fall 2017. Switching things up even more, the Italian fashion label ditched the likes of Irina Shayk and Vittoria Ceretti for Lexi Boling, Kiki Willems and Lineisy Montero. Sticking with the same studio setting, the trio of models makes magic, with a little help from Carine Roitfeld’s styling.
Despite the lack of Meisel, our forum members seemed perfectly satisfied with the outcome. “Well this is an interesting approach for Alberta Ferretti. I like it, it’s Tim Walker without being typical Tim Walker. Plus, Carine’s styling enhances the images,” commented dodencebt.
“This is fantastic, Tim at his best, the mood, the styling, the cast, superb,” cheered Riseup. (more…)
The American edition of ELLE may just be our hottest pick at the newsstand lately. The magazine keeps knocking it out the park and hit a total home run with last month’s cover featuring Missy Elliot. The fashion glossy just unveiled its annual Women in Comedy issue for July 2017 and, instead of going the multi-cover route, ELLE opted for a single cover starring SNL‘s Kate McKinnon. Returning to the cover exactly a year after her last, Kate is all smiles in Versace, posing for photographer Paola Kudacki.

ELLE‘s latest seemed to generate mixed feedback from our no-holds-barred forum members. “Definitely buying this! Gorgeous cover. The edgy shot is gorgeous! Would’ve worn a diff blazer but damn,” raved MON.
“I have no idea who she is, and I like it. It’s very ELLE,” said tigerrouge. (more…)
