Supermodels Past and Present Star in Versace’s Spectacular Spring 2018 Campaign

Donatella Versace gave us a show-stopping tribute in memory of her brother Gianni with Versace’s Spring 2018 collection, so we expected an equally jaw-dropping advertising campaign to complement the collection. Imagine our delight to see Gisele Bündchen and Naomi Campbell join the likes of Kaia Gerber and Gigi Hadid (in addition to many more established models) for an epic series of images. Ditching photographer Bruce Weber (thankfully), Donatella welcomes back Versace and forum favorite Steven Meisel to capture the campaign, with the girls proving every inch their supermodel worth.

Members of our forums couldn’t contain their excitement. “Honey, this is rich!! I can see a stable of muses for this. Meisel, supermodels and Versace, it’s a return to old glory. Welcome home!” cheered Aedlacir.

“This feels so right for the times! It’s absolute perfection. Versace was in major need of a reboot and the collection was a home run. Meisel is the cherry on top! This collection will sell very well,” said an overjoyed GivenchyHomme. (more…)

Bella Hadid Starts 2018 With Two Gorgeous Vogue Korea Covers

If you thought Bella Hadid couldn’t top her wildly successful 2017, it looks like 2018 is going to be just as busy as she begins the new year with a set of Vogue Korea covers under her belt. For the publication’s January 2018 edition, Bella proves she’s the perfect choice for Christian Dior Cosmetics with her flawless complexion and intense stare on a duo of close-up portrait images photographed by Ahn Jooyoung.

The covers generated a mixture of feedback from our forum members. “Having a pretty face doesn’t make you a good model. She can’t emote nor model. And what’s with the art direction,” quipped TaylorBinque the second the covers dropped.

Expressing the same sort of sentiments was Nomar. “Forget about the lackluster expressions, look at that horrendous typography,” he pointed out. (more…)

Emily DiDonato Is Perfect on Vogue Thailand’s December Cover

Vogue Thailand typically flies under the radar on our forums, despite managing to score the likes of Lily Aldridge, Rosie Huntington-Whitley and Kate Upton as cover girls. Emily DiDonato, who recently graced Vogue Turkey, helps the magazine close out 2017 on a high. Emily looks radiant and fresh in the cover shot wearing Gucci, photographed in the studio by Natth Jaturapahu.

Our forum members were here for it. “YAYYY!!! So happy to see Emily. This does just look like a re-used Maybelline ad but gorgeous nonetheless. I can never get enough of that face,” wrote an elated Bobby153 the moment the cover struck.

“So colorful and cute — and she looks like an actual person rather than an airbrushed flat outline,” tigerrouge admired. (more…)

Karolina Kurkova’s Cover of ELLE Russia Gives Us Major 2000-Era Flashbacks

The last time ELLE Russia got our attention was when Bella Hadid starred on the September cover. Now, it’s Karolina Kurkova making us take notice of the newly unveiled January 2018 cover. Long-term ELLE collaborator Gilles Bensimon photographed the blonde beauty, who gives it her all for the striking newsstand cover and throughout the entire cover editorial. In the image, Karolina cozies up in a fluffy Miu Miu coat and Versace shades, giving us major flashbacks to the 2000s.

Our forum members were thrilled with the cover. “ELLE Russia is much better than Vogue Russia. Ekaterina Mukhina and Vadim Galaganov always do a great job. This team is fabulous,” commented ciaoherrero.

“Right? Mukhina is actually one of those few persons who are trying to save Russian fashion,” agreed christian zh. (more…)

Sara Sampaio Defines the Peter Dundas Woman in His First Namesake Campaign

If you haven’t already heard, Peter Dundas launched his own eponymous brand in July with a debut collection for Resort 2018. The advertising campaign for the collection just dropped, featuring a sultry Sara Sampaio. Dundas enlisted photographers Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott to capture his vision for the brand with a mysterious, sensual campaign featuring the Portuguese beauty posing amid a dark and moody setting while showing off Dundas’ creations.

Our forums weren’t feeling it, unfortunately. “It sure is impactful but it is also a bit dated,” commented Lola701 upon seeing the campaign images for the first time. “Too early/mid 00s, and we have the clothes to blame for it.”

“What can I say. I didn’t expect it to look classy with Dundas, M&M and Sara involved but this is just very cheap,” disapproved anlabe32. (more…)
