Most of this month’s fashion glossies have failed to deliver and Love magazine quickly reminds us of its existence by unveiling two eye-catching new covers for its latest issue: one with Margot Robbie and another featuring Cara Delevingne. The two Suicide Squad actresses were shot by photographer Willy Vanderperre and styled by the magazine’s founder Katie Grand for a colorful, 80s-inspired shoot while looking like some die-hard Culture Club groupies.
But the members of our forums most definitely weren’t in the mood for an 80s revival. “Reminds me of Boy George!” stated congacon, after glancing at Margot’s alternative.
“Reading the thread title I got excited, but I’m not too crazy about the lighting and styling,” shared an underwhelmed Nepenthes.
Narcyza wasn’t much of an admirer either. “I don’t like this makeup. She looks much better with a classy red lip,” she said in frustration.
Also unimpressed was tigerrogue: “Love seems obsessed with pin-up girls, as seen through the eyes of a child. It’s like someone who’s dreaming of the day when they’ll grow boobs, but is still drawing rainbows on their schoolbooks and covering everything with glitter.”
“I thought Margot’s cover was bad, but the lighting on Cara’s one is even worse. Who would be interested in these shots?” asked a horrified Benn98.
