The inaugural cover of Vogue Poland featuring Anja Rubik and Malgosia Bela failed to excite the majority of our forum members when it debuted last month. The publication now gives up its April 2018 cover to model Eva Herzigova, whose last Vogue cover appearance was back in 2014. Four years later, Eva shows us what we’ve been missing in the laid-back cover image photographed by Chris Colls. The Czech looks effortless and comfortable wearing jeans and a sweater while reclining on a leather sofa.
Once again, the magazine pulled in mixed feedback. “OK well this is just lazy and uninspired,” pointed out lelaid the moment the cover dropped.
“Pretty shot but not Vogue-worthy, it’s literally and figuratively lazy. It needs more tension/excitement,” noted Nymphaea. (more…)
Our forums had concocted a theory that either Beyoncé or Rihanna would land this month’s cover, but Vogue threw us a curveball by featuring Kendall Jenner for the third time. The model, who’s currently on the cover of Vogue Korea and the face of Missioni this season, fronts the magazine’s April 2018 edition and, just like her first American Vogue appearance, is captured by photographic duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott. In the soft and romantic cover image (below), Kendall was styled by Tonne Goodman in Chanel Haute Couture — complete with an exotic bird perched on her finger.

Apparently, the third time isn’t a charm for some of our forum members. “Oh, come on Anna, just give the cover to Anna Ewers or Grace Elizabeth. How much does it take to have a REAL model on the cover? When was the last one? I can’t even remember,” ranted StockholmFW.
“SERIOUSLY? Why, how even!! Are Vogue readers even slightly interested in her? I am so not and it’s not even a good cover, I’ve seen her shot better than this!” slammed Miss Dalloway. (more…)
Kim Kardashian continues to commandeer newsstands worldwide and now makes her debut on the cover of ELLE for April. It’s hard to believe the social media phenom has never graced the cover of the American title before, having already appeared on US Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Glamour. Photographed by Boo George on a Malibu beach for the occasion, Kim wears a metal mesh crop top from Jeremy Scott and a pair of Yeezy black leggings in the newsstand cover shot (below) while working the heck out of Balmain and Yeezy in the striking black and white cover preview (after the jump).

One cover, in particular, stood out to our forum members. “I love the black and white so much,” voiced caioherrero straight away.
“The second cover is what I’ve been hoping Vogue would do for years. It’s such a great shape shot,” favored Benn98. (more…)
It seems that Glamour has finally heard our complaints and ditched the messy graffiti-style cover font as the magazine unveils its latest offering for April 2018. Amidst some major staff changes and presumably with a small interim team until Samantha Barry takes control, Glamour plays it safe with cover girls Camila Cabello, Elle Fanning and Aja Naomi King. Photographed by Olivia Malone, the girls huddle together in the welcoming and fresh cover shot.
The cover generated a whole lot of mixed feelings amongst our forum members. “It has the feel of an old Allure… and it’s nice to see actual normal grown-up text on the cover, instead of that pseudo-handwritten scrawl they’ve been overusing for the past while,” said tigerrouge.
MON agreed, saying, “Allure? Even the layout screams Allure. You have three gorgeous women and you get this? Camila looks sleepy. Did she come from a show? They should’ve chosen a smiling shot of Elle. Her laugh is out of place here but it’s a beautiful shot of her.”
Just about every major fashion publication has undergone an extensive redesign over the past few months. Interview Magazine had been laying low (our forum members thought they had secretly folded) but the magazine just unveiled a brand new look for the March 2018 edition. Mixing the old with the new, Interview‘s original masthead returns while the magazine taps ‘Fashion’s Next Generation’ of models to star on a series of covers. Five beauties, including Oumie Jammeh, Fran Summers, Lulu, Ansley Gulielmi and Gisele Fox were photographed by David Sims in black and white. Offset with the shocking pink masthead, the covers are sure to command attention at the newsstand.
Unfortunately, our forum members weren’t so captivated. “I don’t know if it’s because they are all new faces or because it’s in black and white, but these look like test shots for me. I’m happy for all these girls tho, it’s strange to see new models on the cover of Interview,” commented apple.
“If that’s the future then I would say it looks pretty depressing,” expressed KissMiss.
We’re pretty used to seeing Irina Shayk sporting the bombshell look, whether she’s giving good face on Vogue Japan, vamping it up on Vogue Russia or doing what she does best as the face of Blumarine. The Russian beauty tries on a new look for Vogue Germany’s April 2018 edition, ditching the heavy makeup and big hair, allowing her natural beauty to shine through. Wearing a white Louis Vuitton blouse, the cover (photographed by Daniel Jackson) marks Irina’s third appearance on the German fashion bible.
Following a sleek and sophisticated Vogue Arabia cover appearance last month, the majority of our forum members were impressed. “Beautiful, she looks great both glammed up and barefaced. And especially – like an actual grown woman and not a teen. Lovely cover!” applauded russianelf.
“I love it because I love her. I actually think she is very versatile and can pull off just about anything because she is extremely beautiful and looks fierce and effortless at once. She can do no wrong in my eyes,” voiced gazebo. (more…)
