Jourdan Dunn Slays on Vogue Arabia’s Two Covers for July/August

Vogue Arabia has only been on the market since its debut back in March and the magazine has already managed to pull the likes of Gigi Hadid, Imaan Hammam and Halima Aden. The Arabian fashion title set its sights on Jourdan Dunn for July/August 2017, who poses amongst a blooming rose garden on location in Istanbul with Turkish fashion photographer Cuneyt Akeroglu capturing the moment of tranquility. On the first cover (below), Jourdan looks ravishing in red Giambattista Valli and wears Elie Saab on the second cover (after the jump).

The covers were an instant hit with our forum members. “Okay now we’re talking! The first cover is gorgeous! Could pass for a UK Harper’s Bazaar cover but it’s good,” voiced MON the moment the cover struck.

“I think the first cover looks stunning – styling, setting, the mannequin-like pose. Can understand the Harper’s Bazaar comparison though, that font. The second cover, however, is as corny as it can get, I’m afraid,” Benn98 chimed in. (more…)

Edie Campbell Is the Latest Michael Kors Woman to Be Stuck in the Back Seat of a Car

Michael Kors likes to drop hints about who will score the campaign for each collection by having his chosen favorite open the show during New York Fashion Week. Last season went to Joan Smalls, before that was Freja Beha Erichsen and now it’s Edie Campbell’s turn to play the role of the Kors woman. Though the model may have changed, the campaign concept sure hasn’t. You guessed it: Edie is captured in the back of a vintage car (now a firm Michael Kors staple) by photographer Mario Testino.

Members of our forums weren’t here for the played-out concept. “Tragic how many times this has been done before, also by other brands. Edie looks good though,” admitted anlabe32.

“Must say, the third shot is rather nice, and Edie looks good. But yes, this concept is way past its sell-by date,” replied Benn98. (more…)

Grace Elizabeth and Steven Meisel Do Vintage Glamour for Vogue Italia’s Stunning July Cover

Grace Elizabeth is set to be the next big thing in modeling. V Magazine just declared her the new ‘supermodel’ to watch and she now has Steven Meisel’s seal of approval, gracing the newly-unveiled cover of Vogue Italia. As expected, our forums applauded Meisel’s contribution this month (given he no longer photographs every single cover of the magazine). For July 2017, Meisel goes retro with Grace looking like an uber-glamorous 1950s movie star caught off-duty, decked out in Louis Vuitton. The issue ushers in another ‘new look’ for the magazine, complete with a larger format, glossier paper and bold content. (Editor’s note: Grace told us back in January that the person she’d most love to work with is Steven Meisel. Mission accomplished!)

Our forum members went wild over the cover. “Feels like one of those good ol’ days covers. My nostalgia makes me love, love love this! And so happy for Grace to get this!” proclaimed a delighted Miss Dalloway.

“Stunning! I’m so happy that it’s Meisel. No one does old school glamour this good. The kind of beauty we rarely see in fashion these days,” appreciated Conbothsides. (more…)

Mica Arganaraz Lands Her First British Vogue Cover

After serving a duo of knockout Vogue Brazil covers last week and a total of eight Vogue cover appearances under her belt, Mica Arganaraz now lands the cover of UK Vogue for the month of August. The British fashion bible has been undeniably good to us lately, giving us the likes of Carolyn Murphy, Amber Valletta and Kate Moss on recent issues. Keeping the model standard up, Mica delights in the stunning portrait cover image lensed by tFS forum favorite Craig McDean.

Members of our forums voiced their praise for British Vogue‘s latest. “I was never a big fan or hers, but I must admit she looks lovely here! Very mainstream, in a good way. Easily her best cover to date. I quite like the red and pink accents and angle of the cover,” admired Benn98.

“I’m having trouble with the facial expression, but overall it’s a cover that’s better than most of their recent offerings. It feels like an 80s cover. I like it. I actually might buy this. First one in years!” declared MON. (more…)

BFFs Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner Come Together for Fendi’s Fall 2017 Campaign

We should have known that Karl Lagerfeld would ask Gigi Hadid back as the face of Fendi after she appeared in last season‘s advertising campaign with sister Bella Hadid and fellow model Vittoria Ceretti. After the first Fall 2017 campaign image surfaced, we assumed Gigi would be fronting the campaign solo for the coming season, but the latest ad to be revealed shows Gigi modeling alongside BFF Kendall Jenner. Shot by Karl himself, the duo is captured amongst a stark white studio setting for the Italian fashion house’s rather uneventful campaign.

Upon first seeing the solo campaign image featuring Gigi, our forum members were less than impressed. “With an actual model this would have looked appealing,” said anlabe32 at once.

“The face ruined everything,” added khyrk. (more…)

Mica Arganaraz Captivates on Two Stunning Covers of Vogue Brazil for July 2017

When it comes to magazine covers, it seemed for a while that Mica Arganaraz couldn’t catch a break, with a collection of uninspired covers from the likes of Japanese Vogue, German Vogue and French Vogue. The Argentinean beauty, who continues to take the fashion industry by storm, now graces Vogue Brazil for July 2017. The current face of Versace poses on the Brazilian fashion bible’s two covers, captured on location in the Japanese city of Kyoto by photographer Rafael Pavarotti. Shot a day after the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2018 show, she fittingly wears the French fashion house in both cover images.

Mica’s latest Vogue appearance certainly won over our forum members. “Wow wow wow, I love both covers, and this is what culture appreciation should be,” commented MDNA immediately.

“The second cover (below) is stunning! I like this glamorous side of Mica,” appreciated badgalcrush. (more…)
