Karlie Kloss Is Estée Lauder’s Newest Global Brand Ambassador

If you haven’t heard already: Karlie Kloss is the newest global brand ambassador for Estée Lauder. The signing is well-deserved due to the impressive body of work the American beauty has amassed since she first broke onto the scene back in 2006. Karlie has walked for the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier, Michael Kors and Christian Dior and become the face of just about every major fashion house (Diane von Furstenberg, Versace and Marc Jacobs, to name a select few). Karlie has also accumulated a staggering thirty-nine Vogue covers throughout her career. Not to mention, the 25-year-old’s entrepreneurship, charitable efforts and being an all-around positive role model for young women around the world.

Joining the likes of Carolyn Murphy, Joan Smalls and Liu Wen as brand ambassadors, Karlie’s debut campaign for Estée Lauder is set to roll out across social media, print and digital publications, as well as Estée Lauder counters in July 2018. In the announcement image (below), Karlie already proves her worth in the shot, wearing the brand’s Lipstick Envy in Insolent Plum.

Immediately after Estée Lauder teased its newest ambassador, it didn’t take long for our forum members to figure out Karlie’s new gig. “What mess is this? They didn’t even let the body get cold before snatching it from L’Oréal? Really Estée Lauder?” asked ThatDudeOverTher.

“I didn’t realize her L’Oréal contract ended. That’s a pretty swift turnaround!” chimed in happycanadian. (more…)

Gigi Hadid Is So Over It on Vogue Japan’s June 2018 Cover

We called it: Gigi Hadid is back on the cover of Vogue Japan for the third time, just one month after sister Bella’s appearance on the Japanese fashion bible, making a total of five Vogue Japan covers between them. For June 2018, Gigi is once again captured by photographic duo Luigi & Iango and styled by Julia von Boehm throughout the accompanying black and white cover story. Fresh from the cover of Harper’s Bazaar, Gigi gives us subtle femme fatale vibes with slicked-back hair, a bold red lip and a black leather Céline coat worn off the shoulder.

According to our forum members, the third time is not a charm. “What a weak cover. I love Gigi, but this is so bad. Plus, how many times have we seen this already?” questioned guimon the moment the cover struck.

“The cover looks more like Vogue Germany, and what happened to her face?” MDNA asked.

“If ever ‘Gigi fatigue’ needed a representative image, here you have it! What’s with her expression? This is very unlikely for Luigi & Iango. And two Hadids back to back? There must be other models to cover!” Benn98 ranted. (more…)

Our Forums Wonder Who Approved This Dreadful Cover Image of Sasha Pivovarova for Vogue Turkey?

Vogue Turkey, which doesn’t usually receive all that much attention on our forums, has been on our radar lately — but for all the wrong reasons. The magazine has managed to do a disservice to a whole host of models including Hailey Baldwin, Emily DiDonato, Natasha Poly and now fails to do Sasha Pivovarova justice for April 2018. The current face of Christian Dior and a forum favorite since she first broke onto the scene over a decade ago was shot by Liz Collins against a pale yellow backdrop, flashing her signature vacant stare while wearing Prada.

Once again, members of our forums weren’t singing Vogue Turkey’s praises. “I’m used to seeing Sasha always delivering, but she looks lost here… I don’t blame her though, this styling and layout is not helping at all,” commented Legolas immediately.

“The cropping is so weird and makes her head look huge. They did her dirty,” added dodencebt. (more…)

tFS Forum Members Call for Regime Change at Allure After the Release of the May 2018 Sasha Lane Cover

It’s common knowledge that the magazine industry is going through tough times. Despite Allure‘s attempts to switch things up by scaling back the frequency of its print issues and dedicating issues to certain themes, our forum members are finding it hard to engage with the magazine’s new look and feel. Allure seems to have forgotten about a little thing called glamour and after a raw and unpolished Adwoa Aboah cover last month, Sasha Lane becomes the face of the ‘Disruptors Issue’ for May 2018. Photographed by Scott Trindle, the actress delivers a perfectly satisfactory portrait cover image.

Once again, our forum members are not in a rush to snag a copy. “OK, I’m done with Allure,” proclaimed jal718 the moment the cover struck, about to set the tone for discussion to follow.

“Seriously!! How is this magazine still around? Ever since Linda [Wells] left it has been such a mess. This try-hard indie feel does not suit, at all!” Miss Dalloway added in frustration.

“Just no,” said Nocturnal. (more…)

Winnie Harlow Does ‘Quintessential ELLE’ for UK ELLE’s May Issue

UK ELLE earns high points for regularly embracing a diverse range of cover subjects (more so than other magazines, at least). Following a less than impressive Alicia Vikander cover last month, model Winnie Harlow stars on the publication’s May cover. Powering on through with its redesign, British ELLE‘s Anne-Marie Curtis commissioned long-term ELLE contributor Gilles Bensimon to photograph the cover this month. The team ventured to Thailand for the occasion, shooting Winnie in Gucci for two vibrant, glam rock-inspired covers.

Our forum members were instantly impressed. “Expected to hate it, but it looks great, actually!” confessed Benn98 the moment the covers came to light. “Glad to see they’re back to the redesign direction, and I like the composition.”

“Love love those oblique 80s style fonts… classic ELLE!” heralded kasper. (more…)

A Bronzed Anna Ewers Takes to the Cover of Vogue Paris for a Fifth Time

Every magazine has its tried and tested cover girl and Anna Ewers is most definitely a firm favorite of Vogue Paris. The German beauty makes a triumphant return to the cover of the French fashion bible for May 2018, which marks Anna’s landmark 20th Vogue cover appearance. You can’t blame Emmanuelle Alt for bringing back the blonde bombshell for the fifth time since she’s one of the magazine’s best-selling cover models (and we have the sales figures to prove it). Photographed by Mikael Jansson, Anna transports us to the sandy shores of Mauritius wearing an embellished denim Gucci jacket, tousled hair and a bronzed complexion — bring on summer!

Our forum members wasted no time voicing their opinions on the cover. “This feels like the good old VP, for me. Love, almost, everything, they could have used less bronze on her though!! Carré Otis she is NOT!” voiced Miss Dalloway straight away.

“I actually thought it was Carré Otis,” added Bertrando3. “I like this cover of Vogue Paris for once!” (more…)
