Maryel Uchida Takes to the Cover of Vogue Japan for June 2022

Like multiple other editions of Vogue, Vogue Japan is under new management with Tiffany Godoy at the helm. Asian representation appears to be at the top of the agenda as Mika Schneider, HoYeon Jung and Yumi Nu have starred on recent issues of the Japanese fashion bible. Now Maryel Uchida is featured on the June 2022 issue through the lens of photographer Hanna Moon. The firm favorite of Maria Grazia Chiuri is decked out in a look from Giorgio Armani’s Spring 2022 collection courtesy of Vanessa Reid for the cover image, which marks the Japanese-Brazilian beauty’s debut Vogue cover appearance.

“I love how every issue focusing on youth ends up looking dull and boring,” quipped MON.

“When’s ‘The Era of Old People’ going to dawn? It would be almost as groundbreaking as these magazines think they’re being with their endless youth issues. Yawn,” A.D.C. chimed … Read more

Jennifer Connelly Wears Louis Vuitton (Natch) on Vogue Greece’s May 2022 Covers

Make no mistake, Vogue Greece has been in our good graces since its triumphant relaunch back in 2019. Covers with Bella Hadid, Sasha Pivovarova, Victoria Beckham, Candice Huffine and Jessica Chastain have captivated us, while Carla Bruni and Helena Christensen helped the magazine celebrate three years of print just last month. Following a 14-year hiatus from gracing the cover of Vogue solo, the Greek fashion bible welcomes actress Jennifer Connelly back for May 2022. Captured by Mark Seliger and styled by Michael Philouze, the longtime friend and muse of Nicolas Ghesquière fronts two covers showcasing looks from Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2022 collection.

While Everyone Can't Stop Talking About Miniskirts, I'm Wearing Their Antithesis

It would be accurate to say that we’re in the middle of a miniskirt renaissance. Since Miu Miu’s S/S 22 collection filled with cutoff pleated miniskirts crash-landed last October, the trend has been rising steadily to the forefront. Now that it’s actually summerfashion’s collective consciousness can’t get enough of the itty-bitty staple, and accordingly, it’s everywhere. But of course, fashion loves to operate in extremes. Just as the miniskirt has taken hold, so has its direct opposite—the maxi skirt.

The idea of wearing something so short has always given me pause (I also hardly ever wear minidresses), so despite loving the look of a miniskirt, it’s not a trend I’d actually consider wearing in real life. The maxi skirt, however, is an entirely different story. For me, it’s way more accessible and beginner friendly than its micro counterpart, and depending on the cut and shape, it can … Read more

Alice Mann Captures Christian Dior’s Pre-Fall 2022 Campaign

The ever-revolving door of campaign photographers at Christian Dior continues to rotate. Since Maria Grazia Chiuri took the helm of the French fashion house back in 2016, we’ve encountered ads from Brigitte Lacombe, Paola Mattioli, Elina Kechicheva and Brigitte Niedermair with the latter capturing Dior’s campaign last season. For Pre-Fall 2022, Alice Mann steps behind the lens to take group portraits of Emi Stankovic, Greta Hofer, Isheja Morella, Jiali Zhao, Manuela Sanchez, Maryel Uchida, Naomi Ekindi and Steinberg for the ode to sisterhood.

In the eyes of our forum members, however, it’s a total flop. “Horrible casting as usual,” complained avonlea002.

“Looks like the angry girls group from last season has new recruits this pre-fall. Another tragic campaign,” echoed Ed..

“Terrible casting with terrible clothes. I do like the composition/idea of the campaign, but when nothing else looks good, there’s no salvation,” voiced an … Read more
