Anja Rubik's latest cover of Vogue Russia has caused quite the stir on the forum this week. The March cover features Anja wearing a jumpsuit from Frida Giannini's latest Gucci collection and was lensed by Patrick Demarchelier, with styling by Olga Dunina.
Anja's bare breast hasn't gone down well with most tFS members, with TREVOFASHIONISTO posting, "Gorgeous colors, but I don't think the one boob is necessary."
Bertrando3 shared the same sentiments, "Anja is always nude somewhere anyways… But ya on the cover of Vogue, I don't like it."
"Nudity on the cover, can newsstands display this? I mean, without a plastic bag or something like that…" said kokobombon
Creative expressed a different enthusiasm towards the cover, and went on to admire how Victoria Davydova (the editor-in-chief of Vogue Russia) has the freedom to publish whatever she desires for the magazine, "Not the biggest Anja fan, but she looks so young and beautiful here, and her breasts are cute. Also, nice to see that some editors are free enough to do what they want."
"I don't get everyone's issue about Anja's exposed breast. Shirtless men are featured on covers all the time and no one's complaining. Why is it such a big deal? The problem here is not Anja's breasts. It's society's perception of the female body." said Nepenthes
Personally, I don't have a problem with the cover. This isn't the first time and won't be the last time we see an exposed breast on a fashion magazine.
