A Fearless Gigi Hadid Does Extreme Sports on V Magazine’s Fall Preview Covers

By now, we’re pretty used to coming across one of the Hadid sisters whenever we pass by the newsstand. We’re only halfway through 2018 and Gigi has already appeared on the covers of Vogue Australia, Vogue Italia, Vogue Japan, British Vogue, Vogue Germany and US Harper’s Bazaar. V Magazine is the latest glossy to jump on the Hadid bandwagon, giving up its #114 Fall Preview issue to Gigi (her second appearance for the title). The current face of Moschino delivers a trio of adventurous covers photographed by Mario Sorrenti and styled by George Cortina while making us want to suddenly do some extreme sports.

Our forum members aren’t always kind to Gigi’s many appearances, but this time she receives rave reviews. “Hey, at least it’s something experimental, opulent and downright fabulous. Not necessarily a fashion photograph but I’ll take it,” commented dodencebt the moment the covers dropped.

“This looks better than her Olympic-theme cover story for US Vogue, we don’t really see her face though,” MDNA added.

“Definitely not what I was expecting at all! The cover is so refreshing, not only for V, but also for Gigi and Sorrenti. I’m really not the biggest fan of his work, but this looks great,” applauded Benn98. (more…)

Kate Moss Is Back in Saint Laurent’s 80s-Fabulous Fall 2018 Campaign

Certain famous faces are synonymous with major fashion houses and there isn’t anyone more identifiable with Anthony Vaccarello’s Saint Laurent than Kate Moss (OK, maybe Anja Rubik). The Brit OG supermodel returned last season as the face of the iconic French fashion house after an eight-year hiatus and is back once again for Fall 2018. Taking things out of the studio this time and transporting us to an idyllic beach in some unknown tropical location, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin captured Kate posing on the sand wearing a low cut, floral and fabulously 80s Vaccarello creation, styled by Alastair McKimm.

The image was quick to generate buzz amongst our forum members. “This is the future of Kate Moss campaigns! Loads of effects and zoom out as far as possible to avoid her face. If you must go for a close-up, Photoshop it to hell and back. I think the image is very fresh and interesting, at least a bit of a break from endless black and white campaigns which we’ve seen for years now!” shared Benn98.

“I agree,” Les_Sucettes replied. “I think Kate Moss is a real icon (a word I hate and rarely use but it’s appropriate for her) and she used to be my favorite, but she can’t model at all on the same terms she used to. I think it cheapens her image all this theatrics to hide the fact that she’s not young anymore.”

Kylie Minogue Is a Little Bit Country on the Cover of Vogue Spain

Following up a questionable Karlie Kloss cover last month with this month’s unflattering Kylie Minogue cover, it appears that Vogue Spain is in a bit of a slump. (In the magazine’s defense, Vogue Australia didn’t exactly photograph Kylie in her best light back in May, either.) For July 2018’s laid-back cover image, Kylie appears barefoot and bejeweled in Dolce & Gabbana and denim, styled by Phoebe Arnold and photographed by Boo George.

The cover just didn’t work for our forum members. “Fiesta? In that hideous denim? Looks more like she’s prepping for a performance here. I like the setting, especially the backdrop and theme, but the styling doesn’t live up to it. This could really have been rather epic if it was styled better,” commented Benn98.

“Why is it so hard to do a good Kylie Vogue cover? Does it always have to be so tacky and devoid of high-fashion?” asked Miss Dalloway.

“This cover looks like The Hollywood Reporter,” IndigoHomme mocked.

Lineisy Montero, Ruth Bell and More Star in Christian Dior’s Poorly Executed Fall 2018 Campaign

Ever since Maria Grazia Chiuri become the creative director of Christian Dior back in 2016, our forum members have fallen out of love with the Italian designer — especially when it comes to botching up Dior’s advertising campaigns. Following a solo Sasha Pivovarova last season, Maria’s back in the mood for multi-girl casting for Fall 2018. Lineisy Montero, Ruth Bell, Asya Reznikova and Evelyn Nagy star in the campaign inspired by both the student protests of the 1960s and French New Wave movies. The foursome took to the streets of Paris for the series of cinematic images, photographed by Pamela Hanson (who quietly replaces Patrick Demarchelier, obvi) and styled by Karl Templer throughout.

Per usual upon the campaign’s release, our forum members weren’t all too fond of the outcome. “Even Zara is better than this…” Lola701 said straight away.

“Who are these people? They have got to be kidding me with this c-list cast and campaign. Can’t believe this is coming from Dior,” expressed anlabe32.

“LMAO truly awful. Who is the creative director of this campaign? Child, that VLC Media Player subtitle is atrocious!” mocked an underwhelmed Ed.

Oprah Looks Regal and Refined on British Vogue’s August Cover

Edward Enninful continues to give the industry and newsstand a refreshing overhaul. He just awarded Ariana Grande her very first Vogue cover appearance last month, brought Cara Delevinge and Steven Meisel together for the first time the month prior and gave us a dosage of diversity back in May. Keeping standards up, Enninful drops yet another memorable cover featuring none other than… Oprah! The American philanthropist and global superstar receives the Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott treatment, styled by Enninful himself in a custom Stella McCartney gown, resulting in a regal, refined and sophisticated newsstand cover (below). For the black and white subscribers cover (after the jump), Oprah channels her inner superhero.

It was simply love at first sight for our forum members. “Um… this is WONDERFUL. Oprah looks as glamorous and beautiful as she’s ever looked. It’s a stunning photograph of her,” raved happycanadian the moment the cover dropped.

“The image is gorgeous, Oprah looks amazing… everything about it works perfectly for me actually,” shared LastNight.

“This is a real wow moment for me, I don’t even notice the layout because of Oprah’s elegance and that beautiful color palette. Mert & Marcus have actually done an incredible job of capturing her beauty,” dodencebt applauded. (more…)

A Chanel-Clad Lily-Rose Depp Is Vogue Russia’s Cover Girl for July 2018

Despite earning Karl Lagerfeld‘s seal of approval, tFS forum members have never been that impressed with Lily-Rose Depp. The 19-year-old daughter of (do we even need mention?) has been the face of Chanel numerous times, starred alongside The Kaiser himself on Vogue Paris, covered British Vogue and Vogue Japan, and took to the cover of CR Fashion Book — all to the dismay of our forums. It seems Vogue Russia is next in trying to make Lily happen, giving up its July 2018 cover to the model/actress. Photographed by Boo George and styled by Katerina Zolototrubova, Lily was captured at a beachfront location, flashing us a hint of a smile over her shoulder while wearing head-to-toe Chanel (natch).

Once again, Lily couldn’t win over our unfiltered forum members. “The styling is nice, but Lily doesn’t make an impact at all,” said forum member Nymphaea the second the cover came to light.

“She looks like she’s 12! It’s a boring image, certainly not Vogue worthy. NEXT!” disapproved Bertrando3.

“Are they still trying to make her happen?” asked GivenchyHomme.
