Estonian model Karmen Pedaru, who has been a face for Gucci and Michael Kors for many seasons, is finally snagging her well-deserved Vogue covers as a result of joining über-agency IMG earlier this year. This month alone has she scored two original Vogue covers. On Vogue España, lensed by Greg Kadel, she is seen wearing bright pink lipstick and posing in a sexy revealing outfit while photographer duo Claudia Knoepfel & Stefan Indlekofer shot her in a Louis Vuitton lace dress for Vogue Russia. TFS forum members seem to favor the Vogue Russia cover though most agree about both covers and editorials being a hit.
“Two covers in one month! I think I like this one better. Brunette hair is so much better option for Karmen than being just another blonde. Plus this cover looks very expensive which I couldn't say about most VR covers,” noted yesitsdagny.
“Great cover!!! That's Karmen time!” added MoniqValentino when commenting on the Vogue Russia cover.
“It's surely one of 2013 best covers,” wrote Pradable.
About the Spanish Vogue cover anlabe32 said, “This is so hot. Karmen is just delicious, I'd turn gay for her. The only thing I don't like is the blonde hair and the fact they needed to use all clothes for something that is so summery.”
“What a hot and sexy cover!” agreed GlamorousBoy.
“From what I've seen, I love the combination of the glistening skin in the light, and then the strong shadow, like something menacing behind her, hiding where the sun can't reach,” analyzed tigerrouge.
Having been a steady force in campaigns for years and being ranked in the models.com ranking’s Top 10 for a while, it is baffling Miss Pedaru had not been equally prominently featured in fashion magazines thus far. But with so much positive feedback for those two new covers, there undoubtedly are many more Vogue covers for Karmen to come!
