Vogue Italia Secures 3 Different Photographers and Gigi Hadid for April 2016 (Forum Buzz)

Our forums had been waiting for what felt like an eternity for Vogue Italia’s April edition to come out. After Steven Meisel returned to photograph last month’s cover, he does his disappearing act once again, leaving the magazine to usher in three different photographers to compensate. Patrick Demarchelier, Peter Lindbergh and Bruce Weber were each commissioned to produce a series of three images for three unique covers.

Members of our forums couldn’t wait to pick out their favorite. “The Demarchelier images are the best for covers, all three ladies look stunning. I am so over multi-covers though, especially when they are all from completely different shoots,” declared LastNight.

“I love everything I see… IMO every image works in its own right, each photographer has done what they do best,” kokobombon championed shortly after. (more…)

Prepare to Ditch Your Old Concealers — Victoria Beckham Partners With Estée Lauder on Makeup Line

Judging by the current trend, this time next year, everything we put on our bodies will have been co-produced by a celebrity. Much like Rihanna (the day) before her, today Victoria Beckham announced that, having conquered the world of fashion, she will now foray into the beauty arena. The fashion designer formerly known as Posh Spice took to Twitter to unveil her limited-edition makeup collection in collaboration with Estée Lauder.

The line, Victoria Beckham Estée Lauder, will hit the shelves of, and select retailers this September, and neither artist nor patron could be more thrilled: “The whole process has been both inspiring and eye-opening – from going back and revisiting the Estée Lauder archives through to working on the product with the Estée team, this feels like the perfect make-up partnership for me and my brand,” gushed the Vogue China cover star.

Willow Smith Sports a Runway-Inspired Cat Eye on Teen Vogue’s May Cover (Forum Buzz)

Let’s face it: Teen Vogue lately is about the only magazine that is willing to take a leap of faith now and again by serving up our regular dose of diversity. Our forums have championed the magazine for doing so and we recently welcomed its efforts to profile Zoe Kravitz back in March. Continuing with diverse cover subjects, Teen Vogue taps Willow Smith as its May 2016 cover girl. The recently announced Chanel ambassador takes to the front cover for the first time wearing a jacket and dress from the French fashion house, standing before the lens of Emma Summerton

Forum members weren’t feeling Willow’s runway-inspired eye makeup, however. “The eye makeup is so bothersome. I’m sorry. They were really starting to make progress… then this?” asked a horrified MON.

“What a nauseous and eye roll-inducing profile!! The harsh eye makeup ruined what would’ve been an otherwise OK cover. I like only the first shot [below left], because it covers her face,” added Benn98. (more…)

Dear Anna Wintour, There’s No Such Thing as ‘Migrant Chic’

If you Google the phrase “migrant crisis” today you’ll see various distressing headlines: “Sicily Flooded by 2,000 Migrants Every Day From Libya After Balkans Route Shut,” “Pope Francis to Visit Greek Camp Holding Migrants in ‘Inhumane’ Conditions,” and, though not anywhere near as perturbing as the former, ones to the effect of “Anna Wintour Calls Kanye’s Yeezy Season 3 ‘Migrant Chic,’ Stuns Us All With Her Lack of Insight.” (Insert *rubbing our temples* emoji here.)

The fashion matriarch’s faux pas came during her recent TV interview with Late Night with Seth Meyers. In the midst of an otherwise smirk-inducing, down-to-Earth description of her experience getting lost and subsequently brought to tears by the labyrinth that is Madison Square Garden, the Condé Nast creative director unwittingly revealed her capacity for human error.

Emilia Clarke Finally Gives Us a Good Cover With a Sultry Pose for Vogue Australia (Forum Buzz)

According to our forums, there’s a certain roster of actresses that can’t seem to shine before a photographic lens. Kerry Washington and Emilia Clarke are two of the members of this unfortunate club. Following last week’s disappointing cover of Glamour, Vogue Australia has finally managed to capture Emilia’s true beauty. To coincide with the new season premiere of Game of Thrones, the British actress posed before the lens of Emma Summerton. In the sultry cover shot, Emilia dons a chic floral playsuit with a pinstripe blazer thrown over her shoulders, complete with a vibrant red lip to enhance those captivating blue eyes.
