Kylie Jenner Scores Her First-Ever Vogue Cover for Vogue Australia’s September Issue

Anything Kim Kardashian or Kendall Jenner can do, Kylie Jenner can do better, right? After years in the limelight and a staggering 113 million Instagram followers later, Kylie has just been given her very first Vogue cover (we know, considerably long overdue). Following in the footsteps of sister Kim, the 21-year-old self-made millionaire covers the all-important September issue of Vogue Australia. Photographer Jackie Nickerson teamed up with stylist Christine Centenera to profile Kylie this month, resulting in a bright and vibrant cover.

The cover caused quite the controversy with our unfiltered forum members. “Bad taste,” quipped Perickles the second the cover came to light.

“What a disappointment! Can’t say I’m impressed. To make matters worse you have one of the most odious and inconsequential young women in the world being put onto a pedestal. This has Christine Centenera written all over it. She’s mad about all things Kardashian. It’s just a shame that one of my favorite Vogue editions had to give this girl her first cover. Shameful!” declared Benn98.

Peter Lindbergh Shoots Amber Valletta, Ashley Graham and Others for David Yurman’s Gorgeous Fall 2018 Campaign

We’ve been eagerly anticipating the David Yurman Fall 2018 campaign ever since news of the impressive cast leaked. Now, four months later, the images are finally here. Ditching Bruce Weber (and rightly so), the luxury jewelry brand brings back old favorite Peter Lindbergh to photograph models Amber Valletta, Anna Ewers, Ashley Graham and Joan Smalls on location in Jamaica.

Amber emerging from the water (above) was the first image to surface. “Oh yes! What a fresh, captivating shot. Still think David Yurman’s jewels are the tackiest ever, but I always look forward to their campaigns,” confessed Benn98.

“The timelessness is what I love about those David Yurman ads, and I think it works perfectly for a jewelry brand,” voiced mikel.

“The campaign looks great even if it’s color. To me, Lindbergh always delivers in black and white photo but to see this in color is pleasant,” forum member elle_gb said.

Emma Stone’s September Cover of ELLE Fails to Excite Our Forum Members

Emma Stone has been a rare sight at the newsstand this year, but that’s all about to change with the unveiling of ELLE‘s September cover. The magazine has given us strong covers in recent months, featuring the likes of Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande. This month, Stone was photographed by Ben Hassett and styled by Samira Nasr in Louis Vuitton (obvs).

Unfortunately, both the cover and Emma’s presence fell flat with our forum members. “Emma Stone in Louis Vuitton. Groundbreaking,” snarked GivenchyHomme.

“Such a shame that this deal means she’s only shot in Louis Vuitton,” added mikel.

“It’s a warm and inviting cover but her hands and hair are obscuring so much of her face, dodencebt pointed out.

Kris Grikaite and Steven Meisel Make a Dream Team for Max Mara’s Fall 2018 Campaign

Steven Meisel is on a roll this campaign season, having shot for the likes of Versace, Moschino, Givenchy and Zara, to name just a few. Now the legendary lensman is back to photograph Max Mara’s campaign for Fall 2018. Following a clean and crisp Cara Taylor offering last season, Meisel photographs Russian beauty Kris Grikaite (a firm favorite of Prada) around a street-like setting as she dashes across the pavement in clothes styled by Carine Roitfeld.

“The real dream team,” stated helmutnotdead.

“I love this. Kris looks great and I’m happy the background is not white like in the previous campaigns,” Lausanne admired.

Bella Hadid Gives Good Face on Allure’s Beautiful September Cover

Bella Hadid hasn’t been on the cover of a major fashion magazine in a hot minute (especially considering last year’s overwhelming stats), yet we’re still thinking about her last cover, for Vogue Mexico, which blew us away. She now makes a stunning return on the cover of Allure, after a two-year hiatus for the magazine. Making up for recent botched covers featuring Lily James and Janelle Monae, Allure‘s September 2018 issue, photographed by Daniel Jackson, features Bella serving good face (something she’s noted for around here) as she stares over her shoulder with piercing blue eyes and coral lips.

Were our forum members impressed with Allure‘s latest? “This is possibly the first Allure cover under the new regime that I actually like – and Bella looks like a human being, instead of a perfect plastic person,” said tigerrouge upon checking out the cover.

“It’s a lovely fresh cover, and certainly a lot better than any of their recent output,” 333101 echoed.

“This is amazing! She works so well when she’s natural and soft. It’s a great alternative to the blow-up doll look we’re accustomed to,” voiced GivenchyHomme.

Abbey Lee Kershaw Outshines Adwoa Aboah and Gigi Hadid in Fendi’s Fall 2018 Campaign

Karl Lagerfeld is known for giving his muses all the plum advertising campaigns he photographs. However, after last season’s disappointing Fendi campaign starring Vittoria Ceretti and Taylor Hill, a new cast is ushered in for Fall 2018. Lagerfeld welcomes back old favorite Abbey Lee Kershaw (a much-welcomed sight considering his past choices), who is joined by Adwoa Aboah and Gigi Hadid for the studio-shot campaign.

A certain someone is clearly the campaign’s saving grace, according to our forum members. “Wow, Abbey made it the best Fendi campaign in years!” praised GreyVetiver the moment the campaign dropped.

“Abbey Lee Kershaw’s a nice blast from the past! She sure does make for a refreshing choice of Karl Lagerfeld’s for an advertising campaign nowadays. She looks terrific and kudos to the hairstylist because Abbey’s hair looks downright gorgeous,” vogue28 said.

“Abbey’s Fendi hair is truly giving me life. There’s not enough room for the other girls here, this is Miss Kershaw’s show alone,” added zoom.
