Bella Hadid Sports a New Short Haircut on Vogue Russia’s March Cover

We’ve become accustomed to Bella Hadid looking a certain way: whether she’s dominating the covers of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, Allure, Vogue Japan or British Vogue, glamour is almost always the aesthetic. After fronting just about every other edition of Vogue, Bella makes her Vogue Russia debut for March 2019 (also her first cover of the year). Photographed by Giampaolo Sgura and styled by Celia Azoulay, the current face of Versace and Moschino ditches the glam, sporting wet hair and virtually no makeup.

Needless to say, members of our forums were expecting more. “I prefer the first cover, it looks very striking, but this new hairstyle doesn’t do her any favors. I know all the Vogues are all out on some secret androgynous agenda right now, but that doesn’t suit models like Bella,” noted Benn98.

“What the hell is that haircut,” russianelf said.

“Yikes. She looks gorgeous in high glamour editorials and beauty shots but you strip away all that and what you’re left with is a not very versatile face for someone that’s supposed to be a supermodel,” dodencebt added.

Maya Hawke Stars on the New Cover of Love Magazine for Spring 2019

Ever since it landed on newsstands back in 2009, Love Magazine has supported emerging talent — along with a healthy dose of nepotism. Throughout its 10-year history, cover stars have included the likes of Kendall Jenner, Kaia Gerber, Miley Cyrus, Kim Kardashian, Lily-Rose Depp, Hailey Baldwin, and Adwoa Aboah. The latest celebrity prodigy to land a cover is Maya Hawke, daughter of Uma Thurman (a past Love cover girl herself) and Ethan Hawke, who features on the newly unveiled Spring/Summer 2019 cover. The 20-year-old actress is concealed by a Marc Jacobs veil chosen by Katie Grand, while photographer Willy Vanderperre snaps away.

The cover did not impress the majority of our forum members. “Not (LOVE)ing this!” said GERGIN upon checking the cover out.

“She’s like a generic version of Ashley Good. She won’t make it. She’s as interesting as Lottie Moss,” remarked an underwhelmed GivenchyHomme.

“Who is she? Another ‘model’?” quizzed Scotty.

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.
