Taylor Swift Tries on a Dark New Look for British Vogue’s January Cover

After a dazzling debut cover in December, we couldn’t wait to see what Edward Enninful had planned for the January 2018 issue of British Vogue. As expected, he pulls out all the stops for his second issue as editor-in-chief, securing Taylor Swift for the cover, photographed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott. Taylor tries on a new look for the dark and moody cover shot, wearing a studded red leather Saint Laurent dress, a dark makeup look from Isamaya Ffrench and wet-look waves styled by Paul Hanlon.

The question remains: did the effort meet our forum members’ high expectations? Unfortunately, no. “Trainwreck. How can you go from the December cover to this?” asked Conbothsides after seeing the cover for the first time.

“Oh, Edward… you let me down big time,” sighed kokobombon. (more…)

Valentina Sampaio Becomes Vogue Brazil’s First Transgender Cover Girl

Vogue Brazil is known for championing home-grown talent and we half-expected to see Gisele Bündchen back on the cover as the magazine closes the door on 2017, but the publication does one better by embracing transgender beauty Valentina Sampaio. She broke down boundaries back in March by becoming the first transgender model to grace Voguecovering Vogue Paris — and she’s at it again. Photographed by Gui Paganini, the 20-year-old Brazilian native works her magic on two different covers for the December edition.

“The first one (above) is a tad corny for my taste, but I like the second cover! It’s a great, classic, and glamorous way to end 2017. And no ‘trans’ tag in sight, which for me is a plus. Just a focus on Valentina’s beauty, that’s all,” admired forum member Benn98 upon checking out the covers.

Miss Dalloway agreed about the magazine’s cover lines, writing, “I really do enjoy a nice smile on a Vogue cover, and her hair looks great as well. The other one is so not necessary! And Benn98, I second that! Nice they didn’t need to use that tagline!” (more…)

Nora Attal Just Scored Her First Solo Vogue Cover(s), for Vogue Arabia’s December Issue

From making waves with Gigi Hadid on the premiere issue to featuring Halima Aden as the first hijab-wearing model to grace the cover of Vogue to Rihanna as an Egyptian queen, we’ve been hooked on Vogue Arabia ever since its launch earlier this year. The magazine now gives up its December 2017 cover to Nora Attal, marking the model’s first solo Vogue cover appearance.

Naturally, when a magazine serves up two covers, only one is bound to stand out “Too much! I’m growing on Nora each time I see her work, and her beauty still come through here, but the styling and art direction is a bit excessive,” said Benn98 regarding the cover above.

“The first one looks like a bad Star Wars cover for an entertainment magazine,” complained CrisGalaxy. (more…)
