Vogue Mexico’s August cover surfaced on our forums earlier today and Monika Jagaciak has scored the cover — making it her first-ever solo Vogue cover (for Monika’s first Vogue cover, she was joined by Liu Wen on the cover of Vogue China’s July 2012 issue). The model, who is currently advertising Chanel‘s L’Instant Watches as well as appearing in cosmetics spots for the French fashion house, is seen posing against a vivid blue background, wearing a white shirt and a denim tie-dye skirt from Anthony Vaccarello.
Many members of our forums are unsatisfied with the cover, however. “I don’t feel like this captures just how beautiful Jac is but still I’m happy for her!” commented Nepenthes.
“I’m so happy to see her on the cover, she’s so beautiful,” added GlamVal. “Vogue Mexico has the virtue of making a model so awful, the hair looks so fake.”
A.D.C. is in the same frame of mind and suggested the cover isn’t exactly Vogue-worthy: “Looks like a Cosmo cover but it’s cute if not very high fashion.”
KateTheGreatest agreed and posted, “Just yesterday I was thinking she needs a Vogue cover. She does look beautiful but I agree that the cover is more Cosmo than Vogue. I do like the styling but again, it’s not very Vogue.”
“In contrast to a couple of people here I really love this cover. It’s very summertime. She looks beautiful. And this cover looks like a VOGUE cover. It’s a hundred times better than last Vogue covers with Isabeli and Anna. One thing that I don’t like is the skirt and too much fonts. Everything without this is really beautiful and I’m so happy that JAC got her first solo Vogue cover!” disagreed a very content DiorPureLove.
