Nadja Bender has landed her first Vogue cover, on Vogue Russia April 2014, photographed by Mariano Vivanco, wearing a creation by Raf Simons for Christian Dior which was styled by Olga Dunin.
"Odd image to choose for a cover. It's seems like Nadja was tired and decided to sit on the footpath for a rest, and Mariano just kept on shooting," wrote AL92
Bertrando3 commented, "She's beautiful but the odd pose/cropping + the outfit makes it difficult to really appreciate this photo."
Nepenthes seemed to really appreciate the cover writing, "Beautiful, relaxed and effortless. Nadja looks beautiful and the colour scheme is great!"
"I quite like it. The pose is indeed a bit unconventional but it creates a spontaneous and carefree mood. Nadja looks lovely and she actually gives me Raquel vibes," wrote mikel.
Whilst it's a pleasure to see a deserving model get her first cover of Vogue, I don't think this is the best picture of Nadja Bender. There's something about the evident post-production which is throwing me off.
