Gigi Hadid Is the Ultimate Bombshell on ELLE’s High-Octane March Covers

Nina Garcia continues to propel ELLE to new heights as editor-in-chief of the fashion glossy by securing a host of A-list cover subjects over the past year, including Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Aniston and Ashley Graham (to name a few). Garcia now adds Gigi Hadid to her esteemed list of cover girls, welcoming the current face of Prada onto the cover for the first time for March 2019. Photographed by Chris Colls, Gigi transports us to the sunny shores of Rio de Janeiro, turning up the heat on three 80s-inspired covers, styled by Ilona Hamer.

One cover, in particular, stood out — but for all the wrong reasons. “Surprise surprise… NOT! I would have loved this shot if it was anyone else but Gigi,” voiced RMDV.

“This is one of the most unrealistic covers I’ve seen in my entire life. Helicopter on a beach, and it’s that close? Plus the hair?” questioned MON.

“If I see one more bad Photoshop job of pasting someone’s body and hair onto a fake background without even trying to make it look real, I will go insane. I can’t believe someone gets paid for this. Such a disastrous execution,” slammed dodencebt. (more…)

Kendall Jenner Makes Blue Eyebrows Happen on Allure’s March Cover

At just 23 years old, is there anything Kendall Jenner hasn’t accomplished in the modeling world? (Aside from landing the cover of British Vogue or becoming the face of Chanel.) Well, you’re about to see even more of last year’s highest-paid model at your local newsstand: Fresh from the cover of Vogue Italia, Kendall is now Allure‘s newest cover girl. She’s certainly no stranger to the magazine, having already appeared on two covers. Photographed by Cass Bird and styled by Jorden Bickham in a Calvin Klein vest top, Kendall ushers in the title’s new redesign while attempting to make blue eyebrows happen.

But did she succeeded? Apparently not, according to our forum members. “What the absolute hell are those eyebrows?” asked SLFC.

“Look everyone I got a complete makeover! *walks in with blue eyebrows*,” mocked A.D.C.

“They did a (series of) number(s) on her face on that cover (and I’m not even talking about her eyebrows),” EstefaniaAbaddon added.

Hailey and Justin Bieber Make It Official on Vogue’s March Cover

We’ve known since December that a Justin and Hailey Bieber Vogue cover was imminent after the newlyweds were spotted at a shoot with photographer Annie Leibovitz and stylist Tonne Goodman. After some delightful covers starring the likes of Priyanka Chopra and Reese Witherspoon over recent months, the latest celebs to hit the cover are indeed Mr. and Mrs. Bieber as Hailey sits on Justin’s lap wearing a white embellished Prada dress, while Justin goes shirtless.

If you thought the infamous Kimye cover was bad…apparently you’ve seen nothing yet, according to our forum members. “This looks like a 45-year-old mom from the suburbs of LA posing with her bad boy son who keeps getting suspended from school for selling Xanax,” mocked littlekiki the moment the cover dropped.

“I’m baffled. Not only is the subject of the cover truly tragic, the image itself is, in my opinion, bloody awful. Neither come off well and the posing is just plain weird,” said honeycombchild.

“No, this is terrible in every way. Anna [Wintour] is just pathetic, truly!” Miss Dalloway called out.

Not Even Irina Shayk and Imaan Hammam Can Save Vogue Japan’s Tragic March Cover

Photographers Luigi & Iango have been the only thing keeping us even remotely interested in Vogue Japan lately. After a slew of unimpressive covers featuring actress Tilda Swinton and rapper Nicki Minaj, our forum members had all but written the magazine off. Thankfully, the publication has gone back to what it does best for the March 2019 issue: featuring models on the front cover. Mariacarla Boscono, Chiharu Okunugi, Irina Shayk, Natasha Poly and Imaan Hammam do glam rock for the multi-girl cover photo (Japanese Vogue‘s signature), decked out in mini dresses from Hedi Slimane’s debut Celine collection, styled by Anna Dello Russo.

According to our forum members, however, it was a missed opportunity. “The casting couldn’t be any more random! Mariacarla is definitely the one who doesn’t belong. And Irina looks unrecognizable. Everyone’s poses look terrible in full length. And then there’s the hideous styling which succeeded in making Celine look very high street,” remarked Benn98.

“Era of Innocence but they all dressed like … that,” laughed Rigida.

“Obviously, this styling doesn’t work on grown women. What they were thinking?” mocked Lola701.

Kendall Jenner Adds Vogue Italia to Her Long List of Magazine Cover Appearances

Whether you love her or loathe her, there’s simply no knocking Kendall Jenner’s credentials as a working model. In 2018, Kendall was a prominent fixture at the newsstand with covers for Harper’s Bazaar, ELLE, American Vogue, Vogue Korea, Vogue Turkey (to name just a few) while starring in various advertising campaigns for mega brands Missoni, Dsquared2, Longchamp and Miu Miu — earning her the spot as the highest-paid model of the year. 2019 is now starting to look just as promising for Kendall as she’s already the brand ambassador for Stuart Weitzman and Roberto Cavalli and now just landed the gig every model dreams of: the cover of Vogue Italia. Photographed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott and styled by Jacob K in Giorgio Armani, Kendall dials up the drama and pays homage to the glory days of great Italian cinema in the 60s.

Our forum members couldn’t wait to share their thoughts. “This would be appropriate for MiLK, Pop, or one of those other hipster fashion magazines, but not Vogue — everything is sad right down to the font,” HeatherAnne said.

“I don’t hate that it’s her. I hate that the pose and whatever M&M asked of her is way out of her league. This kind of shot will rake up the requisite 2/3 million likes on her Instagram, but it doesn’t work for a HF magazine cover,” Benn98 added.

“OH. MY. GOD. This is trash,” expressed phungnam96.

It Took Almost 17 Years for Naomi Campbell to Return to the Cover of British Vogue

A Brit supermodel on the cover of a British fashion magazine is a no-brainer…and it’s almost comical to think that it has taken over 16 years for Naomi Campbell to return to the cover of British Vogue. It’s all thanks to Edward Enninful, who finally makes the incomparable supermodel his cover girl for the magazine’s spring fashion issue, photographed by none other than Steven Meisel. Enninful himself styled the unconventional portrait shot, dressing Campbell in a look from Riccardo Tisci’s debut Burberry collection.

Needless to say, our forum members will be racing to the newsstand for a copy. “Amazing! Must-have cover,” Chalka said.

“Shut it down QUEEN! ICONIC,” applauded Riseup.

“Genuinely stopped me in my tracks, I’ve waited since Edward’s first issue for a Naomi Cover and couldn’t be any happier. Also finally something different from Edward, it’s cool and modern but with an iconic model and team behind it. Bravo!” raved Blayne266.
