ELLE’s Annual Women in Hollywood Issue Features 92-Year-Old Cicely Tyson and More

Fashion glossies are finally giving women over 50 some attention at the newsstands. Allure gave up its September cover to 72-year-old Helen Mirren, Vogue Italia dedicates its October offering to mature women (starring a 73-year-old Lauren Hutton) and US ELLE just tapped 92-year-old Cicely Tyson to star on one of the annual ‘Women In Hollywood‘ covers for November 2017. Jennifer Lawrence, Margot Robbie, Jessica Chastain, Tessa Thompson, Laura Dern, Riley Keough and Kathleen Kennedy also join in the festivities, each going solo on their respective covers, photographed by ELLE regular Terry Tsiolis.

Prior to Cicely’s cover reveal, our forum members weren’t here for ELLE’s latest. “How many ‘Women in Hollywood, TV or Music’ issues do they have per year? It feels like every other month a themed issue comes out and these are just meh,” said an underwhelmed kokobombon.

“Same background, different women. How original. That layout is tragic,” slated MON. (more…)

Margot Robbie Shows Off Her Effortless Beauty on W Magazine’s November Cover

Serious question: who doesn’t love seeing Margot Robbie on magazine covers? Rarely does the actress ever disappoint, having photographed beautifully for the likes of Vogue, Vanity Fair and Marie Claire. Margot currently appears on W Magazine‘s November 2017 issue, captured by Craig McDean and styled by Melanie Ward. The Aussie beauty oozes effortless charm throughout W‘s entire cover story, shot in the back of a vintage car and wearing a brown suede Calvin Klein shirt in the gorgeous cover image.

Most of our forum members approved of the cover. “Oh wow, this actually looks promising! Love the change. Their studio covers got a bit stale and stifled. I’m keen to see more and perhaps even get this issue (haven’t bought W in ages),” voiced Benn98.

“Love it. She’s so beautiful that it’s ridiculous,” admired SallyAlbright. (more…)

Chrissy Teigen Is Photoshopped Into Oblivion on InStyle’s November Cover

Up until recently, our forums have been pretty supportive of Laura Brown’s tenure at InStyle. However, members have been calling out the blatant airbrushing on the past few covers. Selena Gomez didn’t exactly look like herself on September’s issue and you could barely tell Julianne Moore was the cover star last month. Now, you have to squint to see a hint of Chrissy Teigen on the publication’s November 2017 cover. Photographed by Carter Smith, Chrissy is all smiles in the bright, summery cover (FYI InStyle, it’s fall now) while leaving the majority of our forum members scratching their heads.

“OK, so… this is awkward. The amount of Photoshop in that cover is downright atrocious. They’ve airbrushed Chrissy’s face into oblivion, to the point where she is unrecognizable. Am I the only one who’s sat here shocked? Yikes!” voiced vogue28 the moment the cover dropped.

“Who is this woman?! She certainly doesn’t look like Chrissy! Talk about whitewashing,” accused kokobombon. (more…)

Where’s the Glamour on British Vogue’s November Cover Starring Claire Foy?

While we’re waiting in suspense for Edward Enninful‘s first issue of British Vogue to drop next month, the magazine continues to power through with the newly unveiled November 2017 cover featuring Claire Foy. Our forum members knew just what to expect from Claire’s debut Vogue appearance, having taken an exclusive first look at two prospective cover options back in August. The magazine ultimately went with the full-body shot of Claire, making a bold departure from its usual covers, with the star of The Crown wearing a blush pink Christian Siriano gown, shot by Craig McDean and styled by Kate Phelan.

The cover didn’t go down too well on our forums. “I like the cover and the color scheme and at least it’s notably glamorous. Something which Alexandra [Shulman] rarely bothered with. But they couldn’t get a shot where she’s making direct eye contact? Surely McDean must’ve had a variation of this shot,” quipped Benn98.

“That’s not glamour, that’s just two acres of fabric,” sniped tigerrouge. (more…)

Julia Roberts Is All Smiles on the November Covers of UK Harper’s Bazaar

You’ll often hear our forum members ranting about how repetitive UK Harper’s Bazaar can be, forever insisting on shooting cover stories in the English countryside. The magazine appears to have heard our cries with the unveiling of two November 2017 covers featuring a glowing Julia Roberts at the beach in Malibu, California. Photographed by Alexi Lubomirski, People‘s Most Beautiful Woman in the World looks effortless and at ease on the subscribers cover (below) and flashes her famous smile in a lush red Ralph & Russo gown on the newsstand cover (after the jump).

Members of our forums were quick to show the magazine some love this month. “Lovely! Her smile is priceless,” admired Nymphaea the moment the cover struck.

Apple expressed the same sentiments: “So lovely! That smile is worth a million!” (more…)

Lauren Hutton Is the Perfect Choice to Cover Vogue Italia’s October Issue Dedicated to Women Over 60

Vogue Italia’s new editor-in-chief Emanuele Farneti certainly isn’t shy about pushing boundaries and putting his stamp on the fashion glossy. He has already redesigned the entire magazine and put same-sex models kissing on the September cover and now, he dedicates the recently unveiled October issue to women over 60, featuring none other than Lauren Hutton on the cover. With a total of 40 Vogue cover appearances throughout her career, the 73-year-old all-American beauty was photographed by Italian Vogue regular Steven Klein, showing everyone else how it’s truly done on not one, but three tremendous covers for ‘The Timeless Issue.’
