Anja Rubik Models Your Grandma’s Rug on Vogue Germany’s December Cover

The past year has been very hit or miss for Vogue Germany. It kickstarted 2018 with a terrific Gigi Hadid offering followed by a series of questionable covers starring the likes of Birgit Kos, Luna Bijl, Othilia Simon, Charlotte Casiraghi and Anna Ewers. The German fashion bible did redeem itself last month with a lovely Edita Vilkeviciute cover, but now takes a step back with a lackluster offering for December 2018. The publication plummets Anja Rubik into freezing cold temperatures, bundled up in Bottega Veneta (styled by Christiane Arp) while photographed by Giampaolo Sgura.

When the cover dropped, our forum members couldn’t quite believe their eyes. “Sorry but it looks fan-made! It´s very amateur, from the photo to the fonts and layout and altogether it’s not working for me at all,” stated Bertrando3.

“Nothing works. It doesn’t even look like Anja,” mikel chimed in.

“No, c’mon. How do you select that cover image? The asymmetry in her eyes is so glaring,” pointed out youarearockstar.

Forget Kendall Jenner, Gwendoline Christie Owns Miu Miu’s Cruise 2019 Campaign

For some reason, Miu Miu’s advertising campaigns don’t receive all that much buzz on our forums but with an all-star cast for Cruise 2019, the brand has our undivided attention. Actress Gwendoline Christie and models Lucan Gillespie, Taylor Hill, Kendall Jenner, Adriana Lima, Ariel Nicholson, Cami You Ten, Zoe Thaets and Naomi Chin Wing come together for the newly unveiled campaign, all hand-picked by Miuccia Prada herself. The girls were photographed on location outside the luxurious Hotel Regina in Paris by Miu Miu regular Alasdair McLellan, with Katie Grand on styling duties.

One cast member, in particular, stole the show. “Gwendoline Christie? I’m into it already,” confessed dodencebt.

“Oh wow, Gwendoline is the epitome of British class and elegance. This looks so chic and luxurious. I’m actually one of the very few on here who DON’T like Miu Miu at all. But Katie and Alasdair continue to turn the cluttered look into class. I like all the shots posted so far,” added Benn98.

Birgit Kos Deserved Better Than This Vogue Netherlands Cover for November

We’ve had a major crush on Birgit Kos ever since she first splashed onto the scene back in 2016 and our forums have been keeping a watchful eye over the Dutch beauty. In June, Birgit looked like the supermodel she’s proving herself to be on Vogue Brazil, made the fold-out cover of Vogue Italia in April and is now welcomed back to the cover of Vogue Netherlands — just two months after her last appearance. Not your average cover shoot, Birgit was photographed for the November 2018 issue while venturing through the Kleine Scheidegg, a picturesque mountain pass in Switzerland during sub-zero temperatures. In the cover image (below), Brigit poses on the train decked out in Louis Vuitton while gazing down Alique’s lens.

Despite the magazine’s best efforts, our forum members weren’t here for it. “Thought it was [photographed by] Quentin De Briey again because this is awful! The dress, the overall shot, hair and makeup, and her expression,” said Benn98 the moment the cover struck.

“I thought we were past this Photoshop/sharp nonsense. Looks like she burned her face,” pointed out EstefaniaAbaddon.

“LOVE her, but my god, how unappealing is this cover! From the styling, to her facial expression to the god-awful setting. It’s all so off-putting,” Miss Dalloway said.

Grace Elizabeth Can Do No Wrong on the Cover of Vogue Turkey’s November Issue

Grace Elizabeth is a master of the Vogue cover and here’s proof: this year alone, she went effortlessly glam on Vogue Brazil, delivered the goods for Vogue Korea, went minimal on Vogue Russia and channeled her inner supermodel covering Vogue Paris. Mega makeup brand Estée Lauder seemingly agrees, having signed the American beauty as a brand ambassador back in May while she served as the face of luxury fashion brands Chanel, Versace and Tod’s. Now, we’re not at all surprised to see Grace pop up on the November 2018 cover of Vogue Turkey. Photographed by An Le and styled by Konca Aykan, Grace serves good face in an extreme close-up, wearing a black Valentino number and a bold red lip.

According to our forum members, the cover wasn’t Grace’s best addition to her ever-growing portfolio. “It looks like someone’s pulled back a shroud to reveal an unnaturally beautiful woman. Rise and shine, it’s time to come back to life,” commented tigerrouge.

“Definitely getting living corpse vibes from this as well. Her face is just so perfect for beauty shots. You don’t need gimmicks or whatnot with Grace,” Benn98 chimed in.

“This month in Glamour Morgue; Grace Elizabeth!” echoed Vitamine W.

Edward Enninful Celebrates His First Anniversary at British Vogue With Four Steven Meisel-Shot Covers

The moment we’ve been waiting for has finally arrived: Edward Enninful’s first-anniversary issue at British Vogue. It’s hard to believe his first issue starring Adwoa Aboah debuted just 12 months ago — and what a ride it has been. Enninful has given us everyone from Taylor Swift and Oprah to the Beckhams and Cara Delevingne. Now, going all-out in true celebratory fashion, he gifts us not one, but four covers for December 2018 — all of which were photographed by forum favorite Steven Meisel. Adut Akech (shortlisted for Model of the Year), Stella Tennant, Saffron Vedher and Primrose Archer each appear solo on their respective covers, decked out in everything from Marc Jacobs to millions of dollars worth of Chopard jewels.

Which cover is set to disappear from shelves first, you ask? Members of our forums were quick with their predictions. “Adut’s cover is beautiful! I love everything about this. I couldn’t care less for the other ones…” said GinAndTonic upon checking out the four covers.

“I do enjoy all the covers a lot but Adut and Saffron won for me!” Blayne266 wrote.

“I really love Adut’s cover, but Saffron is such a beauty that it’s hard to choose which one is my favorite,” chimed in jorgepalomo.

Jennifer Lopez Brings the Drama on the December Cover of InStyle

Laura Brown has probably given InStyle its most memorable year in its 24-year history, starting with Drew Barrymore in February and moving onto the likes of Oprah, Zoe Kravitz, Sandra Bullock, Serena Williams, Janet Jackson and Tracee Ellis Ross. The magazine closes out 2018 with Jennifer Lopez who, despite having a staggering 81.6 million Instagram followers, is a rarity at the newsstand these days (appearing only on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar in the past 12 months). JLo brings the drama for December 2018 in a glamorous Valentino cape, photographed by Anthony Maule and styled by Julie Pelipas.

Unfortunately, the outcome did not sit well with the majority of our forum members. “Lol, in all seriousness, the cover could’ve worked with someone who has a strong sense of wit and charm. They should’ve given this exact styling to Tracee Elliss Ross last month. JLo just looks pissed and annoyed here,” said Ken Doll Jenner.

“Agreed, it’s not an ‘on brand’ cover for Jennifer. The styling is too artsy and intellectual for her. Besides, the shot looks more US Harper’s Bazaar than InStyle,” Benn98 chimed in.

“Yes, everything is so US Bazaar, just cheaper,” agreed Srdjan.
