Romee Strijd’s Vogue Netherlands Cover Is Sheer Perfection

Not even fashion’s It girl Gigi Hadid could have saved Vogue Netherlands’ underwhelming May cover, but leave it to Romee Strijd to deliver a truly beautiful cover for the title’s June 2017 edition. Exactly thirteen months after her last cover, the current face of MICHEAL Michael Kors cozies up in a sweater at the beach just as the sun goes down, with photographer Jan Welters capturing the summery mood perfectly.

According to our forum members, Vogue Netherlands nailed it this month. “Oh, I like this cover, she reminds me of a mix between a young Heidi Klum and Cato Van Ee. The layout is cool too,” commented Bertrando3.

“LOVE this cover! Not trying too hard, she looks great and it’s perfect for June. I love most of Jan’s covers for them, wish he did more than only few a year!” exclaimed Miss Dalloway. (more…)

Natasha Poly Leaps Into Summer on Vogue Russia’s June Cover

Natasha Poly has landed many a Vogue cover over the years (53 to be exact!) to her impressive modeling portfolio and this month, she makes her 13th return to the cover of Vogue Russia. Following her 90s-inspired September 2015 cover, the blonde Russian native gets us ready for the summer months ahead in the bright and energetic image, captured on location in Dubai with photographer Txema Yeste for the June 2017 issue.

Not all of our forum members were feeling it though. “What is this?” asked a dumbfounded MagFan the minute the cover dropped. “Looks like a cheap supplement and why doesn’t she look like herself? Txema Yeste better run away as fast as possible when they next him to do commercial.”

“Looks like a cheap attempt to copy Vogue Paris,” stated Style Savvy. (more…)

Pooja Mor Gives Good Face on Vogue Arabia’s Somewhat Disappointing May Cover

SinceVogue Arabia launched a mere two months ago with a stunning Gigi Hadid cover, the magazine has been killing it and we continue to praise the title’s efforts. After a knockout April cover with Imaan Hammam, our forums are delighted to see Pooja Mor on Vogue Arabia’s May 2017 installment. Giving us yet another closeup cover image, Indian beauty Pooja gives good face before the lens of Ben Hassett.

Unfortunately, the majority of our forum members weren’t feeling it. “This looks like a beauty or jewelry feature opening shot. Not feeling it for a cover, a nonevent,” wrote a disappointed Miss Dalloway, moments after the cover broke.

“Given the state of covers these days, I’m happy to settle for a closeup shot of a gorgeous woman. Perhaps they’re limited in how much of the body they can show on the cover, so I’m not surprised the focus is on beauty and jewelry. It might be like this for a lot of their issues,” chimed in tigerrouge. (more…)

Elle Fanning Stars on Vogue’s Enchanting Fairytale-Inspired June Cover

Having already covered Vogue Australia and Teen Vogue, Elle makes her American Vogue debut, photographed on location by Annie Leibovitz with Grace Coddington on styling duties.

Is Vogue’s Annual Met Gala Special Edition Issue Really Necessary?

Katy Perry, who recently debuted a new (somewhat questionable) look on the cover of the May issue of Vogue, now appears alongside Pharrell Williams on the magazine’s Met Gala Special Edition issue for 2017. Just like Taylor Swift on last year’s offering, the Met Gala co-chair appears in her Maison Margiela outfit from the evening in what appears to be a tabloid paparazzi shot, photographed by Mario Testino. Notwithstanding the odd cover image choice, we fail to understand why Vogue continues to release this annual special edition.

“Personally, I think these US Vogue Met Gala editions are a total waste. There is literally nothing inside that we haven’t already seen for free, splashed across Vogue‘s website or social media platforms. I wonder if copies actually sell on the newsstand (it would be interesting to see the sales figures),” pointed out vogue28.

Alexa Chung Suffers From ‘Tragic Styling’ on the Cover of British Vogue for June

Not long now until Alexandra Shulman exits British Vogue, making way for incoming editor-in-chief Edward Enninful. Like comfort food, Shulman has been turning to old favorites for her final issues, including recent covers with the likes of Kate Moss and Amber Valletta. Now, Alexa Chung returns for the title’s recently revealed June 2017 cover, photographed by Mario Testino. Alexa seemingly models the contents of her local charity shop in the cover image, while inside the issue shows off the debut collection from her namesake fashion brand, Alexachung.

Upon seeing the cover, our forum members weren’t a happy bunch. “Not a good angle for Miss Chung. This cover is yet another last gasp reminder that it was time for Alexandra to go. Already looking towards the new Edward era!” cried out zoom straight away.

“Jesus. Will someone just give that woman her P45 so we can all move on?” stated honeycombchild. (more…)
