Vittoria Ceretti Was Shot by Three Different Photographers for Vogue Italia’s September Issue

Three or four years ago, our forum members could hardly contain themselves over the release of Vogue Italia’s September issue. Cut to today and it’s just like any other month. After recent disappointments like Madonna‘s seen-it-all-before covers last month and a child-like Kaia Gerber the month before, we no longer expect greatness from the Italian fashion bible. Nevertheless, Vogue Italia’s September offering for 2018 is here, with the title going all out in an attempt to regain momentum via Italy’s most relevant model: Vittoria Ceretti. The fierce beauty and forum favorite was photographed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin and Willy Vandeperre for a selection of three covers for us to choose from at the newsstand.

Members of our forums were left with mixed feelings toward each of the covers. “Are they serious about the font on the cover? The same as last September? How original. I am so tired of what Vogue Italia is offering these days. Losing my hope month by month,” snapped Starry.

“She looks tired,” said an underwhelmed Ed.

“Lol, M&M trying their hand at surrealism? Happy for Vittoria but that doesn’t look anything like her at all,” pointed out Benn98. “I&V, Willy Vanderperre, M&M… what a charming lineup for September! Three of the most overrated photographers in fashion right now!”

Irina Shayk Wears Gucci and a Fresh Chop on Vogue Spain’s September Cover

A bit of glamour is always appreciated by our forum members, especially when it comes to September covers — and Vogue Spain delivers this month. The magazine’s love affair with Irina Shayk continues as she makes her fifth cover appearance on the September 2018 issue. Fresh from celebrating Vogue Russia‘s 20th anniversary, the Russian bombshell sports a noticeably shorter hairstyle while flashing some leg in a red Gucci number, shot by photographer Giampaolo Sgura and styled by Juan Cebrian.

The cover, however, failed to impress our forum members from the get-go. “Ugly cover, hideous dress. From Faretta to this…” Perickles wrote the moment the cover dropped.

“Back in time, this shot would be the cue for Barbara Stanwyck to say something about putting a certain sort of woman in a Hollywood dress,” mocked tigerrouge.

“Not even Irina Shayk can turn this Eleanor Roosevelt dress into something sexy. I’m not sure why this edition is so obsessed with her, at least this cover looks better than her last one. I just don’t understand why we hardly see her in campaigns and on the runway, yet here she is, on cover after cover,” said Benn98.

Selena Gomez’s Hair Takes Center Stage on ELLE’s October Cover

Nina Garcia, who continues to elevate ELLE, certainly has a soft spot for the music industry’s hottest talent, giving recent covers to Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande. Following in their footsteps is Selena Gomez, who takes to the magazine’s recently unveiled October 2018 issue. The songstress, who currently boasts a staggering 142 million (and counting) Instagram followers, sat for photographer Mariano Vivanco and stylist Anne Trevelyan, looking every inch the bombshell in Coach (because what else?)

Yet just like her Harper’s Bazaar cover back in March, our forum members aren’t buying it. “The covers somehow look so dated and not in a good way… the hair perhaps?” asked amby.

“That hair is a no! A very big no!” said MON.

“Oh wow, the hair ruined everything. And she’s going back into her child pageant vibes with this shoot after [Steven] Meisel made her look so age-appropriate for Coach,” wrote Benn98.

The Beckhams Pose for a Family Portrait on the Cover of British Vogue

Not even a year into his tenure at British Vogue and Edward Enninful has managed to tap everyone from Taylor Swift to Oprah, and last month made Rihanna the first black woman to appear on the title’s September cover. Enninful shows no signs of slowing down the exclusives, scoring most of the Beckham family (David Beckham is sadly absent from the newsstand cover) for the October 2018 issue. Victoria Beckham is no stranger to the magazine (this month’s cover marks her fifth appearance) and is now joined by her four children, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper Seven (plus Olive the dog), for a family portrait-style cover. Photographed by Mikael Jansson and styled by Kate Phelan, the world-famous family was shot on location in Donnington, England.

Our forum members weren’t exactly…sentimental over the cover. “This looks like a poor man’s Tommy Hilfiger ad. Where’s the fashion element? Did Edward decide to give them a free family portrait? If that’s the case, well, by all means, give one. But don’t let us the masses see it,” commented Ken Doll Jenner.

“Looks like the default picture in a photo frame that you throw away after buying it,” mocked bluebanter.

“LMAO! No one will convince me this isn’t a People magazine outtake. Absolute garbage, and I actually like Victoria. Edward did her dirty with this mess,” mepps wrote.

Lily-Rose Depp Is Both Angel and Devil on Vogue Korea’s September Covers

Over the years, Lily-Rose Depp has failed to impress our picky forum members on just about every major fashion magazine including British Vogue, Vogue Paris, Vogue JapanCR Fashion Book and, most recently, Vogue Russia. It’s now Vogue Korea’s turn to feature the Chanel brand ambassador on its September 2018 edition. The magazine has been riding a wave of success lately, winning us over with covers starring Luna Bijl and Grace Elizabeth, but its latest is a step backward. The Karl Lagerfeld favorite wears Chanel (natch) and plays the role of both devil (below) and angel (after the jump) on two covers, photographed by Paolo Roversi.

Members of our forums weren’t expecting much. “I can’t believe Lily keeps getting Vogue covers, let alone a September cover. Both covers are boring,” wrote gunsnroses.

“Why is she still getting covers?” asked anlabe32.

“This is disappointing for September,” agreed mathiaskatz.

Adut Akech Outshines Adesuwa Aighewi and Anok Yai on i-D Magazine’s Fall 2018 Covers

Our forums have a love/hate relationship with i-D Magazine and we went a whole year without being bothered with the magazine until a series of Spring 2018 covers blew us away — which were unfortunately followed by an unimpressive Kaia Gerber offering for Summer 2018. The publication now moves on to Fall 2018, adding another dash of diversity to the newsstand with Adut Akech, Adesuwa Aighewi and Anok Yai as its latest cover girls. In the trio of covers, Adut (below) was photographed by Campbell Addy, Adesuwa captured in black and white by Oliver Hadlee Pearch (below, left) while Ethan Green James shot Anok (below, right) for the third and final cover.

As per usual with multi-covers, there’s always one that stands out to our forum members. “I was hoping for an epic group shot when I saw the thread title. Love Adut’s cover! She is a treasure!” raved mikel, seconds after the covers all surfaced.

“These are all quite lovely covers but Adut’s one definitely stands out. It might just be the use of color, but the composition is also quite striking and works well,” Nomar chimed in.

“When Adut’s name turns up in a thread title, I’m right there. The other two girls don’t stand a chance against her cover shot,” said tigerrouge.
