Vogue Brazil's April issue features six of the country's finest models posing on its fold-out cover. Photographed by Jacques Dequeker, Isabeli Fontana, Izabel Goulart, Aline Weber, Ana Cláudia Michels, Ana Beatriz Barros, Renata Kuerten, Rhayene Polster and Babi Beluco all wear Raf Simons' creations for French fashion house Christian Dior.
Members of theFashionSpot forum concluded that the cover wasn't up to expectations.
"The matching styling is not bad IMO, though with that title they could have made something more interesting… the bland expression on their faces bother me, at least Aline is showing some attitude," wrote kokobombon.
Vivaglam described the lack of effort: "I don't mind it only being Brazilians on the cover, but this sucks. They didn't even try."
Psylocke shared the same sentiments: "LOL. I actually got a little excited when seeing the title of this thread, expecting a sexy group shot like in Ana BB's and Isabeli's early modeling days, but this is just so lame. Concept, styling, creativity, fonts are all meh. They all look good, but it's super boring."
"How flat looking, no sparkle at all, fast forward in the trash bin," exclaimed Nymphaea.
Marsnoop2 made some very interesting suggestions: "This is HORRIBLE! You have some of the most beautiful models in the world and this is what you come up with? Why didn't they took a look at U.S. Vogue's September 2004 cover to see how to do a fantastic models cover? Also, their choices, I mean really? These are the most relevant Brazilian models? Where's the glamour, where are the icons?"
