Solange Bundles Up in an Oversized Red Coat for ELLE’s March Cover

We are so here for Solange Knowles getting the recognition she deserves on the fashion magazine cover circuit lately. She currently has our forums captivated on the powerful and arresting cover of Interview‘s February issue and now, American ELLE takes a stab at profiling Solange for March 2017. Following in her sister’s footsteps, the singer/songwriter takes part in a fashion-forward cover shoot with photographer Terry Tsiolis, working an oversized red Norma Kamali coat in the newsstand cover image (below).

“What is with the heavy wintry styling, is this cover for Australia? Solange is essentially very fashion-forward so the styling is not too out-there, but she doesn’t pull this look off. It’s too overwhelming! Plus, her hair looks awful,” pointed out a disapproving Benn98 the moment the cover surfaced. “I seem to recall an African ELLE cover she did a while back (must’ve been South Africa) – yellow, bright, full of prints. That looked good, and season appropriate,” he went on to state.

“Tragic! Where are her boxing gloves?” asked MDNA, also quick to discredit the styling. (more…)

Allison Williams Goes Platinum on Allure’s Washed Out March Cover

Going blonde must be in for March. Rihanna just went blonde for Harper’s Bazaar and now Girls actress Allison Williams tries on platinum hair for her Allure cover shoot. According to our forums, the beauty bible has been treading on thin ice the past few months with a series of disappointing covers, and it seems there’s a new one to add to the list. Allison was willing to sacrifice her gorgeous brunette locks for the magazine’s March 2017 cover — but the outcome was hardly worth the effort. Captured by Jason Kibbler, at least Allison gives good face in the portrait image.

Safe to say our forum members definitely won’t be hurrying to the newsstand. “Saw this on Michelle Lee’s Instagram earlier and couldn’t believe it. Looks more like an art piece than it does a photograph. What a horrible cover image. Yuk!” vogue28 exclaimed.

“Is this a photograph or a drawing?” asked a dumbfounded serendipity8777. “It has to be a drawing!” replied a horrified YourMonster. (more…)

Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Ashley Graham and Others Celebrate Diversity on the March Cover of Vogue

Models on the cover of Vogue? No, you’re not dreaming. Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Beyoncé were the names tossed around our Cover Rumor Thread in anticipation of Vogue‘s upcoming March edition, but we’re gifted a bevy of today’s hottest models instead. Liu Wen, Ashley Graham, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Imaan Hammam, Adwoa Aboah and Vittoria Ceretti appear on Vogue‘s diverse cover celebrating the many faces of beauty. Dutch photographic duo Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin are finally given their debut American Vogue cover — after decades of working for the magazine without a single cover to their name.

It didn’t take long for our forum members to generate discussion. “YESSS! Models!! What great casting!” miguelalmeida enthused.

“OMG! I’ve died and gone to heaven. Finally, a US Vogue to be really excited about. I’m especially happy for Imaan. So glad she’s not on the foldout this time,” added an equally impressed mikel. (more…)

Rihanna Goes Blonde for Her Third Harper’s Bazaar’s Cover

Harper’s Bazaar sure is loving pop stars (and the color red) while celebrating its year-long 150th anniversary. Lady Gaga and Madonna have both been given covers and now it’s Rihanna’s turn for March 2017. Marking her third cover appearance for the glossy, Rihanna goes blonde for photographer Mariano Vivanco’s first Bazaar cover shoot. Rihanna smolders on the newsstand cover (below), while on the subscribers cover (after the jump), she stands atop a vintage aircraft in a nod to the magazine’s heritage.

Unfortunately, our forum members weren’t sold on the concept. “Why are magazine editors acting like there’s only five singers, five actresses and five models that need to be used over and over and over again? Honestly? I don’t like the cover, the hair looks too messy for my taste and I don’t like different shades of red,” complained KateTheGreatest the moment the cover dropped.

“Mariano Vivanco, really? So basically Bazaar is now at the level of Vogue Mexico or Brazil? So sad, just when you think they can’t fall any further, they do,” added a disapproving A.D.C. (more…)

Scarlett Johansson Strikes a Powerful Pose on Marie Claire’s March Cover

It’s been quite a while since Scarlett Johansson has appeared on a fashion magazine cover, but much to our delight, she has turned up on the March 2017 cover of Marie Claire. The magazine has been a little erratic lately, giving us covers our forums either love or loathe, and after an envy-inducing Claire Danes cover last month, Marie Claire‘s latest leaves forum members divided. Shot by Tesh, ScarJo poses for a powerful and commanding portrait wearing a glitzy Gucci number.

“She looks beautiful but the styling is atrocious. The angle certain doesn’t help,” voiced forum member dodencebt the second the cover dropped.

“You took the words out of my mouth,” replied Bertrando3 feeling the same way. “Yes, she looks lovely (great hair and makeup) but the styling and angle are not doing her any favors. I’m sure there were better options but they blew it unfortunately,” he declared. (more…)

Naomi Campbell Proves Her Legendary Status on Town & Country’s March Cover

Who better than Naomi Campbell to front a magazine cover with the words ‘legendary style’ splashed across the top? Town & Country gets its cover subject just right for March 2017, enlisting the legendary model herself to lend her fierce beauty and attitude to the glamorous cover shoot. Photographed by Max Vadukul, Naomi wears a stunning navy blue Carolina Herrera gown, proving she’s still amongst the best in the business.

Surprisingly, the majority of our forum members expected a whole lot more. “Every now and then Naomi can hit it out the park but for the most part, I find her work incredibly boring. It’s like editors are happy to have Naomi but just don’t bother doing anything with her,” critiqued A.D.C at once.

“First impression: a Greek goddess eating grapes, but a bit too conceited for my taste. I miss some freshness,” added an underwhelmed Nymphaea. (more…)
