It’s starting to become apparent that Vogue Mexico is stepping up its game with each new issue. Our forums used to complain about the lack of creativity and originality the magazine projected, but there have been signs of improvement over the past few months. Magazine covers can often be static and frigid, but Brazilian model Adriana Lima certainly shows just how it’s done on the July 2015 cover, modeling a dramatic fringed jacket by Balmain as she works the lens for Russell James.
So, it’s unfortunate that the majority of our forum members weren’t feeling it. “There’s so much going on! I don’t know where to look! Her face is barely recognizable. The fringe on that dress is too distracting. The hair/extensions are all over the place. How long is that hair for it to fly like that? Is she referencing Medusa? There’s no focal point in the cover and it’s sad,” ranted MON.
“Who the hell has taken over the typography for Vogue Mexico covers, it looks terrible. I feel like Vogue Mexico is starting to look more and more like Vogue Brazil,” slammed marsnoop2.
“Given how often Russell James photographs Adriana for Victoria’s Secret, it’s kind of shocking that her face ended up so messed up on this cover,” added a surprisingly underwhelmed orchidee.
Also not convinced was Creative: “I think everything she has done in her life as a model looks really cheap… And I have nothing against her at all, but she just can’t produce something sophisticated.”
Bertrando3 agreed, exclaiming, “Her Vogue covers are never working for me and here she looks unrecognizable and the pose/hair/makeup and layout, it’s a big MESS.”
Vogue Mexico took one step forward and four steps back with this one. Ouch! Share your opinion here.
The Hadid girls are set to dominate your local newsstand this month. Both Gigi and Bella pose together on V Magazine‘s Fall Preview 2015 issue and now, Gigi goes solo on the cover of Vogue Brazil‘s July 2015 edition. The title is certainly racking up the high-profile cover subjects, having already tapped Kim Kardashian to exclusively pose for last month’s cover. Kim’s garish shoot is a far cry from Gigi’s, which is subtle and alluring with the Maybelline ambassador‘s natural beauty doing all the talking.
Forum members made their opinions clear the minute the cover surfaced. “How striking and how gorgeous!! That stare just pierces through. I’m really starting to like her,” praised MON.
“Of all the ‘social media models,’ I’m glad it’s Gigi who’s getting all these covers. I’d have no hesitation getting hold of this,” tigerrouge continued.
“What a stunning close-up shot! With that warm filter and that suede top, it looks perfect! Can’t wait to see the full editorial,” added an optimistic miguelalmeida.
Galimatias echoed their sentiments, shouting, “Third Vogue cover this year! She is my favorite of the celebrity models…”
Also giving Brazilian Vogue kudos was Avogadro: “It seems that Vogue Brazil is good at making social girls look decent. I remember that Kate Upton had a really good cover and this is gorgeous as well.”
“Woah, go Gigi!! Such a siren, Vogue Brazil managed to capture her allure. Love the colours,” Benn98 announced.
Feeling the same way was Miss Dalloway: “What a gorgeous cover, she is seriously growing on me. I think she has a potential to be the next big cover girl, very photogenic.”
Guess we’ll be seeing even more of Gigi in the near future! Drop us a comment here.
It’s hard to think of Kate Moss as anything other than the impossibly cool supermodel who knows how to party and isn’t above calling out a basic bitch or two. But to her 12-year-old daughter Lila Moss, Kate is just like other moms in that her antics can sometimes make you want to curl up in a corner and pretend that’s not the woman who gave birth to you.
Lila Moss took part in a Q&A with Ask.fm and dished a bit about her mom, who she firmly says is not her idol. “No, like every mum she’s embarrasing and annoying but u love them rlly [sic].” Though her mother isn’t her top inspiration, Lila does take after her mom in that she hopes to have some sort of career in fashion. “Mayb a fashion designer [sic],” she said “But defo not a model [sic].”
Something tells us Lila won’t have any problem getting help from her mom if ever she wants to start a fashion line. After all, Kate’s got connections with just about everyone in the industry, so getting little Lila’s clothes in front of the right eyes will likely be a cinch.
Today, the United States Supreme Court handed down a historic 5-4 ruling in the fight for marriage equality. With this decision, the union between same-sex couples will be recognized in all 50 states. Guess we can call “gay marriage” plain old “marriage” now. This is the new normal.
Justice Anthony M. Kennedy penned the majority opinion, explaining why the SCOTUS ultimately came to the decision. “No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family,” he wrote. “In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than they once were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.”
It is truly a big day for all Americans and people around the world are celebrating this major day in our history. Below, celebrities react to the historic ruling.
Looks like Jay Z and Beyoncé have to watch the throne now that it’s been taken over by a hot new celebrity couple. Forbes has released its list of top-earning celebrity couples and after topping the list in 2013, they have been usurped by none other than Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris. Together, the newly-minted couple pulled in $146 million, which is quite a bit more than Jay and Bey’s $110.5 million.
Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton round out the top three with $57 million. While Swift and Harris’ combined wealth is quite impressive, keep in mind that they are just dating for now, compared to Bey Z and Shelbert, who are married. We wish Swift and Harris the best of luck in their relationships, but if their fling doesn’t last, you can count on not seeing these two on the list next year. But who knows? The couple that makes the Forbes list together might be the one that stays together.
