Naomi Campbell Goes Wild on Vogue Arabia’s November Covers

Despite being a fairly new magazine, Vogue Arabia seems to have massive pull when it comes to cover subjects. In 2018 alone, it has featured Irina Shayk, Iman and Imaan Hammam, Adwoa Aboah and Ashley Graham and Paloma Elesser on the front cover, while also managing to secure HRH Princess Hayfa Bint Abdullah Al Saud. For its all-important September edition, the publication was the first to make Nicki Minaj a Vogue cover girl and now, Naomi Campbell makes her debut on the magazine’s signature twin covers for November 2018. Photographed in Chris Colls’ studio, the ultimate 90s super wears bold Balenciaga and Tom Ford looks styled by Jenke Ahmed Tailly.

According to our forum members, the two covers felt like a missed opportunity. “Terrible! Styling, pose, everything. This is not a cover. The styling is just too much for me. They couldn’t tone it down a bit?” asked Benn98.

“This reminds me of what Vogue Portugal once was — tragic reprints of editorial shots from US Vogue. This seriously looks like a REPRINT from a US Vogue editorial. Shame,” said MON.

“It looks a bit fan made to me, and that’s more of an editorial opening shot than a cover. I really don’t think I like it,” said dodencebt.

Charlize Theron Is the Ultimate Dior Woman in the New J’adore Absolu Fragrance Campaign

It’s almost hard to believe that Charlize Theron first signed with Christian Dior back in 2004. Now, 18 years on, she is still fronting the label’s iconic J’adore fragrance campaigns. To coincide with the release of the new J’adore Absolu scent, the American actress is welcomed back with open arms by our forum members. Everyone’s favorite Dior brand ambassador was directed by Romain Gavras in the powerful and hypnotizing commercial while also captivating in a gold Maria Grazia Chiuri creation for the accompanying print campaign (below).

Needless to say, members of our forums were sold on Charlize’s return. “Jesus, who needs a model when you have Charlize? Her presence is astounding,” Benn98 said.

“MAGNIFICENT. Charlize really embodies this brand’s luxury and glamour in a way that, truly, nobody else does I think. The Carmen Kass print campaign is iconic, no doubt. But please go back and re-watch the commercial, this one blows it entirely out of the water,” said happycanadian.

“The J’adore campaigns have long since taken over from YSL’s Opium as an instantly recognizable statement about a woman with a sense of sensuality and no shame about expressing it,” tigerrouge noted.

Viola Davis Outshines Everyone on Glamour’s ‘Women of the Year’ Covers for December

Out of all the mainstream fashion glossies, our forums have been the hardest on Glamour over the past year, thanks to a disastrous redesign and awful covers featuring Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Tiffany Haddish (to name a few victims). Editor-in-chief Samantha Barry closes out the year with a series of ‘Women of the Year‘ covers featuring Viola Davis, Janelle Monae, Chrissy Teigen and the ladies of the March for Our Lives movement for the recently unveiled December issue.

Per usual with multi-covers, one was sure to stand out. “ANNA [Wintour] you could have had THAT COVER! Stunning Viola! Stunning!” applauded tFS forum member MON with a clear favorite.

“Viola looks stunning! and yes, it should have been on Vogue,” agreed magsaddict.

“Viola looking like a true queen she is. What a tremendous woman of beauty, wit and talent. That is truly a glamorous cover. I wish Vogue could have done that,” TaylorBinque agreed.

Kim Kardashian Says She Is Too Well-Known for KKW Beauty to Be Confused With KW Makeup Line

https://www.instagram.com/p/Bpe-5GClPi-/?hl=en&taken-by=kkwbeauty

The long legal battle between Kim Kardashian-West’s KKW Beauty brand and Danish makeup artist and entrepreneur Kjaer Weis seems far from over. The copyright infringement lawsuit was filed on July 2017 by Weis, claiming that “KKW” closely resembles “KW,” causing confusion amongst customers.

Weis began using her trademarked KW logo seven years prior to Kardashian’s launch of her makeup brand. The makeup artist accuses Kardashian of making a “knowing, willing, and deliberate” choice to use a similar logo for her KKW makeup line. A representative for Kardashian said, “There is no merit to this lawsuit. Before launching, Kim received approval for KKW, KKW BEAUTY, and KKW FRAGRANCE from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. When Ms. Weis asked for a re-examination, the USPTO again approved the brand names for Kim’s company a second time. Kim has done everything by the book.”

More than a year later, Kardashian is now aiming to have the case dismissed, claiming Weis has failed to show evidence of consumers actually getting confused between the brands and that the brands have different packaging and price points. And, with “Kardashian’s fame and access to over 100 million social media followers,” she does not need “to trick the public into associating her products with Kjaer Weis in order to gain exposure or traction.” It’s hard to argue with that.

A hearing regarding the dismissal is set to take place on November 2.

Kaia Gerber Is Giving Us Major Hair Envy on Vogue Japan’s December Cover

To say 2018 has been Kaia Gerber‘s year would be an understatement. She kickstarted the year by fronting Vogue Paris, channeled Gia Carangi for Love, made the cover of Vogue Italia and returned for a second French Vogue appearance just last month. All of this was in the midst of countless runway shows and becoming the face of mega brands Versace, Moschino, Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld. It’s no wonder the 17-year-old nabbed a Fashion Awards nomination for model of the year. Now, Kaia rounds off her year perfectly with a December cover of Vogue Japan, shot by Luigi & Iango. Looking fresh-faced with a major blow-out, she suits up in Giorgio Armani, styled by Julia von Boehm.

Despite everyone’s best efforts, the cover fell flat with the majority of our forum members. “I don’t know. She looks lifeless, boring, depressing but beautiful at the same time. I was waiting for a festive cover and all I can see is a waitress after the New Year’s party,” IndigoHomme said the moment the cover dropped.

“Not that I expected to be bowled over because I’ve actually been somewhat indifferent towards Kaia Gerber, but this is just unremarkable for a December cover. Vogue Japan’s December covers are normally so festive, with the model all glammed up in a nice gown,” added Benn98.

“Yawn. Nothing interesting here,” Valentine27 chimed in.
