Gigi Hadid Channels Debbie Harry for W Magazine’s Volume #8 Cover

W Magazine is slowly but surely getting back on our forum’s radar. The October issue featuring Cardi B was the first to grab our attention in 12 months and now, with the unveiling of Volume #8, W welcomes back model-of-the-moment Gigi Hadid. The magazine steps it up a notch for the holiday season with a Debbie Harry-inspired cover shoot, photographed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott with Carlos Nazario in charge of the punk styling. Gigi is the spitting image of the legendary American singer, rocking Harry’s signature platinum blonde hairstyle, a smoky eye and a little black sequined dress from Saint Laurent.

The Debbie Harry reference is even more apparent throughout Gigi’s cover story — but not according to our forum members. “She looks like a 40-year-old actress. That hair doesn’t suit her,” liv4beauty said the second the cover came to light.

“The bleached eyebrows is not a good look for Gigi. Is it me or did they try to make her look like Kate Moss?” asked mikel.

Perickles was unable to catch the reference too: “She looks like Melania Trump!”

Priyanka Chopra Becomes the First Indian Woman to Star on the Cover of Vogue

The wedding of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jones has been a major topic of conversation this week — and Vogue is making sure we’ll still be talking about it come January. Earlier this week, the magazine put the newlyweds on its first-ever digital cover to mark the occasion (which ultimately bombed on our forums) and now we aren’t at all surprised to see Priyanka go solo on Vogue‘s print edition for January 2019. A far cry from the juvenile digital offerings, Priyanka gets the Vogue cover treatment she deserves with a rich-looking Annie Leibovitz-shot image as she becomes the first Indian woman ever to grace the magazine in its 125-year history. Styled by Tonne Goodman, the actress sits pretty in a nude-toned Tom Ford dress, her hair pulled back into an effortless chignon and a sultry red lip.

“Well, VERY happy with the final result. Digital cover may be trite, but this is a classic US Vogue cover. Love the rich, warm tones for January, and her hair looks effortless yet great,” Benn98 approved at once.

“After all the comings and goings, I gotta’ say that I love the print cover… specially the color scheme,” confessed kokobombon.

Also sharing enthusiasm toward the cover was forum member Blayne266: “Wonderful classic American Vogue cover featuring a new face! I’m glad it isn’t the wedding dress but instead this sultry Tom Ford number.”

Bella and Gigi Hadid, Vittoria Ceretti and Others Morph Into Mickey Mouse for Chaos Magazine

We’ve come to rely on Luigi & Iango to consistently deliver arresting imagery for magazine covers and advertising campaigns. Whether the duo is shooting major covers for Vogue Japan, Vogue Italia or Vogue Russia, our forums are usually a captivated bunch. Therefore, we aren’t at all surprised that Chaos has commissioned Luigi & Iango for its special poster book commemorating Mickey Mouse’s 90th birthday. To help with the celebrations, Chaos enlisted models-of-the-moment Bella and Gigi Hadid, Karen Elson, Cara Taylor, Shanelle Nyasiase and Vittoria Ceretti to pay tribute, each getting their own cover of the limited-edition book while channeling the iconic Disney character in the most fashion-forward way possible.

The covers sparked a keen interest amongst our forum members. “They’re all really fantastic covers. And I’m loving this little Karen Elson resurgence lately. She’s iconic and is pretty consistently getting good work, but it’s like every couple years she kinda has a full-on spell of high profile fashion gigs and I’m always here for it. It’s surprising how seamlessly she fits in with these girls of an entirely different era,” admired happycanadian.

“Oh my God, Karen’s made me gasp. That face!” exclaimed dodencebt.

“Karen is the winner here,” russianelf declared.

Dua Lipa Stars on British Vogue’s January Issue, Shot by the Magazine’s First Black Female Cover Photographer

We were pretty content with our copies of British Vogue‘s December issue — that is, until the magazine decided to release its first offering for 2019. Confirming our suspicions about Edward Enninful’s choice of cover girl, Dua Lipa makes her debut on the British fashion bible for January, after first appearing on the cover of Vogue Turkey back in April. Not only does this mark her second Vogue cover appearance overall, but it’s also the first time a black female photographer has shot the cover of the magazine. Nadine Ijewere captures the Brit singer/songwriter in a white feathered Gucci number for the newsstand cover (below) and a white ruffled Gucci maxi dress for the special subscribers cover (after the jump), both styled by Kate Phelan.

Despite the best efforts from everyone involved, members of our forums weren’t exactly elated over the outcome. “A bit disappointed. I wish it was a little more zoomed in and had a different makeup,” voiced Marc10.

“Couldn’t they have zoomed in and make it half-decent? The hair and makeup isn’t helpful either,” Srdjan echoed.

“I knew this moment would come and I knew that I would hate it. I can’t stand this girl anyway, especially wrapped in feathers and with a tacky art direction. Next,” slammed ghostwriter10549.

Newlyweds Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jones Cozy Up on Vogue’s First-Ever Digital Cover

If you haven’t been hiding under a rock, you’ve no doubt heard that Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jones are now married, following a lavish wedding ceremony in India, and to make their relationship even more official, the newlyweds take to Vogue‘s first-ever digital cover for January 2019. Receiving the full Vogue treatment, the pair was photographed by Annie Leibovitz for the occasion and styled by Tonne Goodman. In the first digital cover (below), Priyanka and Nick were captured on location at Bayonet Farm for a fairly standard portrait image (considering it was captured on Google’s Pixel 3). For the second cover (after the jump), the couple shares an embrace as Nick is seemingly serenading his wife while playing guitar.

Members of our forums certainly weren’t in the mood to celebrate after seeing both covers. “This has to be fake. WTF?” asked Scotty.

“It’s one of the tackiest covers I have ever witnessed. To use a wedding to promote Vogue and themselves is bad taste in my opinion but in this way it’s even worse, it’s just ridiculous,” slammed apple.

“Please tell me that got hacked and this is not for real! What a way to start 2019,” Royal-Galliano wrote.

Taraji P. Henson Resembles an Air Hostess From the 60s on InStyle’s January Cover

No doubt, Laura Brown won the newsstands in 2018 with major names like Oprah, Serena Williams, Jennifer Aniston and Janet Jackson (to name a select few) starring on the cover of InStyle. Brown has a knack for selecting subjects that many other fashion glossies don’t feature (*cough* Vogue) and this year is already looking promising with none other than Taraji P. Henson on the January 2019 cover. Photographed by Robbie Fimmano and styled by Julia von Boehm, Taraji sadly ends up looking more like an air hostess from the 60s in a look from Valentino than she does your typical InStyle cover girl.

Safe to say our forum members weren’t fans of the styling. “Lol, 60s air hostess? First cover looks like they’ve Photoshopped her neck out. Both covers are awkward,” stated Benn98.

“A boss owns the airline, they don’t dress like the person who hands out the nuts,” echoed tigerrouge.

“Poor girl… this cover makes me uncomfortable and that’s a pity because you can tell that Taraji has a lot of, let’s call it, ‘fashion energy’. What a mess,” ghostwriter10549 said.
