ELLE UK Taps a Smizing Karlie Kloss for the Cover of the March Spring Fashion Issue (Forum Buzz)

Considering that models are few and far between on the covers of major fashion titles nowadays, we are grateful to U.K. ELLE this month for bestowing upon us a cover with one of the most in-demand and recognizable models. ELLE tapped Karlie Kloss to cover its blockbuster spring fashion edition, photographed by Kai Z Feng with styling from Anne-Marie Curtis, wearing Louis Vuitton.

Members of our forums shared mixed views toward the cover, however. “I like it, it’s really striking. I bet it’s gonna stand out on the newsstands!” enthused Nepenthes at once.

“Most certainly the best cover they have done in years, for me. Everything works here, she looks great, and all that text layout doesn’t take away when you have such a strong image. Well done, I’m surprised,” contributed an amazed Miss Dalloway. (more…)

Carolyn Murphy Personifies the Oscar de la Renta Woman for Spring 2016 (Forum Buzz)

After last season’s delightful campaign, we welcome back Carolyn Murphy with open arms for Oscar de la Renta‘s Spring 2016 ads. Shot in New York by David Sims (also a return engagement), the long-serving Estée Lauder ambassador embodies elegance and sophistication to perfection.

Demi Lovato’s Tattoos Ruin a Perfectly Good Cover of Allure (Forum Buzz)

We’re forever complaining about various magazines serving up the same old recycled cover stars. Thankfully this month, Allure brings us someone who has never fronted a major mainstream fashion title before. Joining the likes of Emma Roberts, Blake Lively and Kate Hudson, Demi Lovato is added to Allure‘s list of cover girls. Photographed by Alexi Lubomirski, the American singer looks radiant (at least from the neck up).

One element in particular caught the attention of our unhappy forum members. “I wish she would have put her hand down because it’s really distracting. If this is the clean issue, then I want to see a beautiful face with little to no makeup, not a bunch of tattoos,” KateTheGreatest ranted immediately.

“Most tattoos have an interesting story, a personal meaning, but in terms of the simple aesthetics of a cover shot, those just look unimpressive and messy. Like faces, hairstyles and fashion, if something is going to be on the front of a magazine, it had better be worth looking at,” chimed in an underwhelmed tigerrouge. (more…)
