Are Marie Claire’s ‘Fresh Faces’ Really That Fresh?

Forum members couldn’t wait to debate whose cover came out on top. “Couldn’t have picked a more tired and grating tagline if they tried. Emily’s cover is the best one, IMO,” wrote forum member MyNameIs after seeing all the covers together.

“The tagline is cheap TBH. Talk is cheap. I’d rather see an empowering and powerful image rather than your normal cover shot coupled with a tagline on feminism,” added MON. (more…)

Steven Meisel Photographs Ralph Lauren’s Gorgeous Icons Campaign Once Again

Face it: Steven Meisel is one of the best fashion photographers working today. His stunning imagery always leaves us captivated and this season alone he has produced flawless campaigns for the likes of Max Mara, Alberta Feretti and even Zara. Our forums called Meisel’s campaign for Ralph Lauren’s Icon Collection “pure perfection” last year and for 2017, the legendary lensman reprises his role shooting the American label’s newest Icons campaign. So far, models Alicia Burke and Vittoria Ceretti make a return, each posing for elegant black and white images.

Vogue Italia Celebrates the New Beautiful With Model Sara Grace Wallerstedt

Not even Steven Meisel could save last month’s Vogue Italia and we’re somewhat pleased to see photographers Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott take the reins for April 2017. As the Italian fashion bible’s new EIC gets acclimated, the Turkish photographic duo capture ‘The New Beautiful’ while helping Emanuele Farneti’s vision become a reality. Fresh-faced beauty Sara Grace Wallerstedt makes her debut Vogue cover appearance on the title’s main cover (below), while fellow models Ansley Gulielmi and Cara Taylor star on the fold-out (pictured after the jump).

Our forums erupted as soon as the cover struck. “Flat, and uninspiring, this is just so bland, almost, can’t even comment!!” declared an enraged Miss Dalloway.

“Boring. Looks like they tried to imitate Meisel’s style for Vogue Italia,” pointed out a disapproving Scotty. (more…)

Victoria Beckham Models Her Target Collection on the Cover of UK ELLE for May

After gaining our forum’s approval with a stunning Damaris Goddrie cover last month, the British edition of ELLE is going through a transition period, having secured a brand new Editor-in-Chief this week. Victoria Beckham, a typically reliable cover star, fronts the May 2017 issue, following a somewhat awkward stint on last month’s InStyle. Photographed by Kelly Hallihan, Beckham wears her highly anticipated collaboration with Target in both the newsstand cover (below) and the limited one for subscribers (after the jump).

Our forum members were surprised by the outcome — and not in a good way. “This looks bad. Not her best cover,” pointed out MON within seconds of the cover reveal.

“Her face is so bloated! It was either shot very early in the morning or she’s got too much botox,” added Srdjan. (more…)

Vogue Germany is back on a winning streak, having regained our attention and received our seal of approval with a gorgeous set of Madonna covers last month. Sticking with multi-covers again this month, the German title dishes out a trio of covers featuring three of fashion’s top models for May 2017.

Surprisingly, the covers received mixed feedback. “Kate’s looks like déjà vu, Lara looks dead, and I couldn’t care less about Irina. Not very exciting!” reviewed an unimpressed Valentine27.

“All three aren’t very good, too much reality for me. Kate is lucky because she got black and white, it’s more flattering,” wrote Nymphaea. (more…)
