Edward Enninful Celebrates His First Anniversary at British Vogue With Four Steven Meisel-Shot Covers

The moment we’ve been waiting for has finally arrived: Edward Enninful’s first-anniversary issue at British Vogue. It’s hard to believe his first issue starring Adwoa Aboah debuted just 12 months ago — and what a ride it has been. Enninful has given us everyone from Taylor Swift and Oprah to the Beckhams and Cara Delevingne. Now, going all-out in true celebratory fashion, he gifts us not one, but four covers for December 2018 — all of which were photographed by forum favorite Steven Meisel. Adut Akech (shortlisted for Model of the Year), Stella Tennant, Saffron Vedher and Primrose Archer each appear solo on their respective covers, decked out in everything from Marc Jacobs to millions of dollars worth of Chopard jewels.

Which cover is set to disappear from shelves first, you ask? Members of our forums were quick with their predictions. “Adut’s cover is beautiful! I love everything about this. I couldn’t care less for the other ones…” said GinAndTonic upon checking out the four covers.

“I do enjoy all the covers a lot but Adut and Saffron won for me!” Blayne266 wrote.

“I really love Adut’s cover, but Saffron is such a beauty that it’s hard to choose which one is my favorite,” chimed in jorgepalomo.

Jennifer Lopez Brings the Drama on the December Cover of InStyle

Laura Brown has probably given InStyle its most memorable year in its 24-year history, starting with Drew Barrymore in February and moving onto the likes of Oprah, Zoe Kravitz, Sandra Bullock, Serena Williams, Janet Jackson and Tracee Ellis Ross. The magazine closes out 2018 with Jennifer Lopez who, despite having a staggering 81.6 million Instagram followers, is a rarity at the newsstand these days (appearing only on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar in the past 12 months). JLo brings the drama for December 2018 in a glamorous Valentino cape, photographed by Anthony Maule and styled by Julie Pelipas.

Unfortunately, the outcome did not sit well with the majority of our forum members. “Lol, in all seriousness, the cover could’ve worked with someone who has a strong sense of wit and charm. They should’ve given this exact styling to Tracee Elliss Ross last month. JLo just looks pissed and annoyed here,” said Ken Doll Jenner.

“Agreed, it’s not an ‘on brand’ cover for Jennifer. The styling is too artsy and intellectual for her. Besides, the shot looks more US Harper’s Bazaar than InStyle,” Benn98 chimed in.

“Yes, everything is so US Bazaar, just cheaper,” agreed Srdjan.

Naomi Campbell Goes Wild on Vogue Arabia’s November Covers

Despite being a fairly new magazine, Vogue Arabia seems to have massive pull when it comes to cover subjects. In 2018 alone, it has featured Irina Shayk, Iman and Imaan Hammam, Adwoa Aboah and Ashley Graham and Paloma Elesser on the front cover, while also managing to secure HRH Princess Hayfa Bint Abdullah Al Saud. For its all-important September edition, the publication was the first to make Nicki Minaj a Vogue cover girl and now, Naomi Campbell makes her debut on the magazine’s signature twin covers for November 2018. Photographed in Chris Colls’ studio, the ultimate 90s super wears bold Balenciaga and Tom Ford looks styled by Jenke Ahmed Tailly.

According to our forum members, the two covers felt like a missed opportunity. “Terrible! Styling, pose, everything. This is not a cover. The styling is just too much for me. They couldn’t tone it down a bit?” asked Benn98.

“This reminds me of what Vogue Portugal once was — tragic reprints of editorial shots from US Vogue. This seriously looks like a REPRINT from a US Vogue editorial. Shame,” said MON.

“It looks a bit fan made to me, and that’s more of an editorial opening shot than a cover. I really don’t think I like it,” said dodencebt.

Charlize Theron Is the Ultimate Dior Woman in the New J’adore Absolu Fragrance Campaign

It’s almost hard to believe that Charlize Theron first signed with Christian Dior back in 2004. Now, 18 years on, she is still fronting the label’s iconic J’adore fragrance campaigns. To coincide with the release of the new J’adore Absolu scent, the American actress is welcomed back with open arms by our forum members. Everyone’s favorite Dior brand ambassador was directed by Romain Gavras in the powerful and hypnotizing commercial while also captivating in a gold Maria Grazia Chiuri creation for the accompanying print campaign (below).

Needless to say, members of our forums were sold on Charlize’s return. “Jesus, who needs a model when you have Charlize? Her presence is astounding,” Benn98 said.

“MAGNIFICENT. Charlize really embodies this brand’s luxury and glamour in a way that, truly, nobody else does I think. The Carmen Kass print campaign is iconic, no doubt. But please go back and re-watch the commercial, this one blows it entirely out of the water,” said happycanadian.

“The J’adore campaigns have long since taken over from YSL’s Opium as an instantly recognizable statement about a woman with a sense of sensuality and no shame about expressing it,” tigerrouge noted.

Viola Davis Outshines Everyone on Glamour’s ‘Women of the Year’ Covers for December

Out of all the mainstream fashion glossies, our forums have been the hardest on Glamour over the past year, thanks to a disastrous redesign and awful covers featuring Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Tiffany Haddish (to name a few victims). Editor-in-chief Samantha Barry closes out the year with a series of ‘Women of the Year‘ covers featuring Viola Davis, Janelle Monae, Chrissy Teigen and the ladies of the March for Our Lives movement for the recently unveiled December issue.

Per usual with multi-covers, one was sure to stand out. “ANNA [Wintour] you could have had THAT COVER! Stunning Viola! Stunning!” applauded tFS forum member MON with a clear favorite.

“Viola looks stunning! and yes, it should have been on Vogue,” agreed magsaddict.

“Viola looking like a true queen she is. What a tremendous woman of beauty, wit and talent. That is truly a glamorous cover. I wish Vogue could have done that,” TaylorBinque agreed.
