Throughout decades of publication, Vanity Fair has had its fair share of iconic covers, and the title’s newest cover is sure to generate a whole lot of buzz. For the upcoming August 2017 issue, tennis ace Serena Williams recreates one of the magazine’s most recognizable covers exactly 26 years later, posing nude à la Demi Moore (August 1991) while pregnant with her first child. Taking to the cover for the very first time, Serena is captured in profile captured by world-renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz.
“Woah, OK! I’m speechless. So much to take in. I think it’s a very daring image (remake of Demi’s iconic cover?) which will certainly shock the VF reader trouser-less. The ‘styling’ simply doesn’t work, it’s far too dark, but with that masthead it’s definitely eye-catching. Plus, I’m definitely keen to hear what she’s got to say,” voiced tFS forum member Benn98 upon seeing the cover.
“Now that is how you re-do your most Iconic cover, LOVE IT!” applauded Miss Dalloway. (more…)
Ever since Jeremy Scott took the reins at Moschino in 2013, his advertising campaigns have been nothing short of spectacular. Last season, we witnessed sisters Bella and Gigi Hadid coming together before the lens of master photographer Steven Meisel, but have both done a disappearing act for Fall 2017. Replacing the Hadids are models Slick Woods, Hiandra Martinez, Natalie Westling, Tamy Glauser and Mileshka, who each give it their all in Meisel’s studio with Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele on styling duties.
Slick’s campaign image (above) was the first to find its way onto our forums. “Why break a winning formula? Meisel continues to make Moschino appear expensive and covetable. Slick looks chic here captured by Steven,” commented zoom.
“Extremely random choice of model but it works!” confessed RedSmokeRise. (more…)
Maria Grazia Chiuri can’t catch a break from our opinionated forum members when it comes to showing off her talents at Christian Dior. The creative director’s debut advertising campaign for the iconic French fashion house failed to make a splash for Spring 2017 and Jennifer Lawrence‘s current campaign for the brand was deemed boring. Now, as we take a peek at Dior’s campaign for the upcoming Fall 2017 season, our forums aren’t exactly thrilled. No doubt photographed by Brigitte Lacombe again, Dior switches up the casting by adding models Adwoa Aboah and Jing Wen to pose alongside Ruth Bell, who starred in last season’s campaign with sister May Bell.
Our forum members didn’t hold back their opinions. “Depressing, boring, uninspiring, flat. Nothing’s happening here,” said a disapproving Valentine27 the moment the first campaign image dropped.
“They all look so bored. Why would any woman want to buy Dior with those three staring back at them?” asked a startled mepps. (more…)
With campaigns for Alberta Ferretti, Bally, Replay, Missoni and Givenchy, Irina Shayk had quite the season for Spring 2017. Now off to a promising start for Fall 2017, Irina replaces Sara Sampaio as the face of Blumarine. Once again shot by photographic duo Luigi & Iango, the Italian fashion house ditches the plain studio backdrop in favor of the decadent surroundings of a 20th-century villa for the series of ultra-feminine and sophisticated campaign images.
Our forum members were impressed. “Finally, a gorgeous Blumarine campaign, it’s been years! Great photography and a great model for Blumarine,” applauded DutchHomme .
“Oh wow, perhaps the most polished Blumarine campaign I’ve seen in ages! Irina looks stunning, and the clothes look great. Good job, Luigi & Iango!” echoed Benn98. (more…)
Vogue Spain is going through a transition period right now with a new editor-in-chief at the helm. Last month’s Jessica Chastain appearance felt a bit random but the new July 2017 cover is right on target. Riding a wave of success for 2017, model Imaan Hammam adds the cover of Spanish Vogue to her already impressive portfolio that includes American Vogue, British Vogue, Arabian Vogue and Japanese Vogue.
“Getting a Porter-esuqe déjà vu, with this cover! But I don’t care, it’s so wonderful to see Imaan scoring all these Vogue covers,” applauded forum member Miss Dalloway at once.
“Love the styling and dark colors. That jacket fits really nice on her. I think this is better than her recent Porter cover. Good on her for booking all these Vogue covers!” championed Benn98. (more…)
As announced in December 2016, Selena Gomez is the new brand ambassador for Coach, having inked a multimillion-dollar deal with the New York-based fashion brand. Selena’s debut as the face of Coach comes in the form of the label’s newly unveiled Fall 2017 advertising campaign. Photographed by Coach regular (and forum favorite) Steven Meisel, Selena plays up to the role of the all-American Coach woman perfectly, captured in the back of a vintage car wearing Stuart Vevers’ designs, styled by Karl Templer.

Was the outcome enough to satisfy our forum members? “This is possibly the best I have seen her look in print, they changed her eyebrows, and she looks so much more mature, and interesting,” raved Miss Dalloway upon seeing the campaign images.
“She fits Coach better than that weird Louis Vuitton stint,” added RedSmokeRise. (more…)
