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…)

Gigi Hadid Delivers Another Knockout Vogue Cover This Month

Gigi Hadid is on her way to earning the title of International Model of the Year for a second year as she continues to set the fashion world ablaze with her unstoppable work ethic and high-profile modeling gigs. We’re only just into February and Gigi has already scored the cover of British Vogue and is the face of numerous fashion brands for Spring 2017. Her latest is one of eight covers (each with a different model) for Vogue China’s March issue, shot by photographer Patrick Demarchelier. The luxe cover shows Gigi wearing a sexy leopard print Saint Laurent dress and wispy hair.

“Eight different covers, all shot by Demarchelier? At least one should be good then. I’m not sold on this one. It looks very half-baked, what’s this hair with that dress and make-up?” questioned an unforgiving Benn98 the moment the cover came to light, making his feelings clear toward the cover.

“Even with 8 covers in total, one with Gigi is just too much. Interested in Imaan’s, Natalie’s and Yasmin’s though,” voiced anlabe32. (more…)

Cindy Crawford Is Barely Recognizable on Vogue Australia’s Questionable March Cover

If there’s one thing our forums love to see, it’s models on the covers of fashion magazines. Over the past couple of months, we’ve noticed a decline in models on the cover of Vogue Australia, but it appears the glossy has heard our cries and enlisted the expertise of 90s supermodel Cindy Crawford for March 2017. A random, yet much-welcomed sight, Cindy was photographed by Emma Summerton looking ravishing in red Christian Dior.

Surprisingly, our forum members were unimpressed. “Wow, what is going on with Vogue Australia? This is just so try-hard, from styling to everything really!” cried Miss Dalloway the moment the cover struck.

“The direction of this cover seems to be all over the place. I don’t get it,” added a confused Nepenthes. (more…)

Emily Ratajkowski Goes Casual on InStyle’s Revamped Cover for March

Our forums have been keeping a watchful eye on InStyle ever since new editor-in-chief Laura Brown became focused on changing the look of a magazine we praised in 2016. Brown’s first issue under her creative control has finally been unveiled for March 2017. Emily Ratajkowski, who’s currently fronting Vogue Spain, graces the cover of InStyle‘s latest revamp shot by Carter Smith. The American actress and model sports a casual look consisting of a graphic white T-shirt, designed exclusively for the magazine by Off-White’s Virgil Alboh.

Is the revamp a success? Our forums are currently divided. “Great covers! It’s always a treat when American magazines put models on covers!” championed GivenchyHomme straight away, quick to show his approval.

“I love the newsstand cover. It has a 90s supermodel vibe to it. It’s also a little reminiscent of Anna Wintour’s first American Vogue cover,” described an eagle-eyed A.D.C. (more…)

Lottie Moss Looks Like a ‘Teen Super-Villain’ on the Cover of Harper’s Bazaar Russia

Lottie Moss is somewhat new to the game but continues to build a portfolio most other models could only dream of. She already has a cover of Vogue Paris under her belt, was just announced as the face of Chanel’s upcoming eyewear campaign and now appears on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Russia — letting us know she’s more than just Kate Moss’ little sister. The 19-year-old posed for the February issue, shot by Rachell Smith, resulting in a glitzy, glamorous cover shot.

Did Lottie’s latest impress our opinionated forum members? “She looks like a teen super villain on a budget TV show! Have Lottie Moss’ team decided yet how they want to market her? Because so far it looks like they’re stabbing in the dark — we already have an Elle Fanning! I like the icy-blonde on her, but not the styling!” posted a far from impressed Benn98.

“Oh, why?” asked a horrified narcyza, suggesting Russian Bazaar was just jumping on the bandwagon. (more…)
