British Vogue Delivers a Disappointing Zoë Kravitz Cover for October 2017

There are some celebrities that always deliver strong and compelling magazine covers, and Zoë Kravitz is one of them. She’s covered her fair share of fashion glossies, including the likes of ELLE, Allure and Teen Vogue (each receiving our forum’s seal of approval). The actress-turned-YSL beauty brand ambassador now makes her debut on the cover of Vogue, fronting British Vogue‘s newly unveiled (yet not so new to us) cover for October 2017. Photographed by Alasdair McLellan, the team embraced the upcoming fall season, complete with grungy styling and a laid-back attitude.

Unfortunately, our forum members simply weren’t here for Zoë’s latest. “Messy hair and all those tiny tats make her look dirty,” slammed Srdjan straight away.

“Bland and forgettable, plus those tattoos look like they were done in a prison. The idea of Zoë for Vogue sounds great but it’s a shame the execution ended up so underwhelming,” expressed Benn98. (more…)

Everyone Is Freaking Out Over Meghan Markle’s Vanity Fair Cover

Vanity Fair is seriously into exclusives lately, having just delivered a post-split Angelina Jolie as its September cover girl and now taps actress Meghan Markle , who also happens to be the girlfriend of Prince Harry. In true Vanity Fair fashion, all hands were on deck to give the women’s rights campaigner a fashion shoot to remember for October 2017, with master portrait photographer Peter Lindbergh on set to deliver a series of natural, effortless and perfectly undone pictures of Meghan.

Our forum members weren’t crazy about the cover, however. “…but probably wilder about fame. Yikes,” slammed MulletProof, taking jabs at Vanity Fair‘s choice of cover lines.

Nymphaea felt the same way: “Thinking the exact same thing. Major yikes!”  (more…)

Mica Arganaraz and Musician Yoshiki Wear Head-to-Toe Saint Laurent on Vogue Japan’s Androgynous October Cover

Vogue Japan has a whole lot of redeeming to do before getting back into our forum’s good books. While the magazine is currently getting us hyped for the October 2017 issue, we’re still scratching our heads over how utterly plastic and lifeless six supermodels looked on its September cover. Sticking with photographic duo Luigi & Iango, Argentinean beauty Mica Arganaraz is back fronting the Japanese fashion bible, joined by Japanese musician Yoshiki. Rocking head-to-toe Saint Laurent and some killer makeup, they make a striking androgynous pair.

The cover received mixed feedback from forum members. “Awful. Too much Photoshop. And that black border is atrocious,” announced Style Savvy the moment the cover struck.

“Mica always looks the same, her hair hair hair,” MDNA wrote.

“Yeah I know how Mica is going to look like, she’s always the same. And the hair is the same too, so boring that they don’t try something new,” confessed KateTheGreatest.

Badgalcrush felt the same way: “I’m so sick of Mica always looking the same, I think if they switched the makeup and hairstyle with Yoshiki it could be way more interesting!”

“Is that a cardboard cut-out of Mica? I think I’ve seen it several times now. They might as well at this point. Same results,” said Vitamine W.

However, not everyone was so quick to show their disapproval. “I somewhat like it,” TeeVanity admitted.

“I kinda like that slightly moodier – almost Marc Bolan – look on Mica’s face,” admired tigerrouge.

“I love this, the mood, the styling, the great makeup. Mica is getting quite a few Vogue covers this year, and she never looked more beautiful,” Miss Dalloway praised.

“I love it, has that vintage YSL feel,” liked Urban Stylin.

Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington Dance in the Streets of Naples for Dolce & Gabbana’s New Fragrance Campaign

Dolce & Gabbana is jumping on the Game of Thrones bandwagon with the new ‘The One Eau de Toilette‘ fragrance campaign starring Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington. The brand continues with the viva l’Italia concept for the campaign, which was unsurprisingly shot on location in the picturesque Italian city of Naples. Photographed by Luca Morelli, both Emilia and Kit soak up the Naples atmosphere and are pictured amongst the hustle and bustle of the city with a handful of locals attempting to steal the spotlight. Moving on from past ads featuring the likes of Gisele Bündchen, Scarlett Johansson and Matthew McConauhey, the campaign didn’t fare well with our forum members.

“I’m so done with D&G. Look at this, so fake (look at the Photoshop!!) and pretentious,” wrote horrified forum member whitewine82 upon seeing the campaign images.

“What crap is this?” asked OllieJE. (more…)

Vogue Italia Features Three Photographers and Two Same-Sex Kisses on Its September Covers

Forget American Vogue‘s mega September spectacular, each year, our forums eagerly await the reveal of Vogue Italia’s take on the all-important September issue. However, due to some staff changes and a massive overhaul of the magazine earlier this year, we were unsure what to expect this season. Last month’s Lara Stone cover was declared a total flop and the title is currently doing its best to stimulate interest in its latest issue. So much so, three different photographers were commissioned to capture the multiple September 2017 covers, with Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin and Willy Vanderperre each submitting fashion stories for us to deliberate over (all three featuring Italian beauty Mariacarla Boscono). But are three photographers and two same-sex kisses enough to please the masses?

A post shared by Vogue Italia (@vogueitalia) on

The covers by Mert & Marcus (above) were the first to feel the wrath of our unimpressed forum members. “Indecisive cover, hesitant. It should have been more bold/statement. Forgettable,” scolded Nymphaea.

“I really, really resent this!! For September I don’t need gimmicks like this!!” hollered Miss Dalloway. (more…)

Not Even Lily-Rose Depp and Prince Can Save These ‘Nondescript’ Covers of CR Fashion Book

You’d better hurry to the newsstand if you’re after a copy of Halima Aden‘s flawless cover of CR Fashion Book because the publication is already getting us hyped up for the Fall 2017 installment. Once again going with a very clear theme, CR‘s next venture is taking us back to 1999 for issue #11. Cover subjects Lily-Rose Depp, Lara Stone, Alek Wek and Cara Taylor each appear in bold black and white cover images, captured by photographers Steven Klein and Mario Sorrenti. For CR Men’s Book, a never-before-seen shot of 90s pop legend Prince was unearthed, making a rather bold statement about what to expect from the contents.

The outcome simply wasn’t enough to stimulate our forum members, however. “The sight of the late Prince sharing a cover with a random celebrity child is making me uneasy. It’s disrespectful and there was no need for it,” ranted dodencebt the second the covers struck.

“Fashion is really in dire need of a shake-up from top to bottom! I’m looking at these covers and I can’t imagine what went through the team’s mind to publish this. Empty, nondescript, and zero energy!” Benn98 exclaimed. (more…)
