Vogue Russia tapped Lindsey Wixson to front its big September issue. She was photographed sporting a short, cropped, dark wig (which doesn’t do her any favors) by Alexi Lubomirski. Of course, Lindsey wears an outfit from Louis Vuitton‘s fall collection, which Vogues worldwide have taken a shine to. The cover marks the American beauty’s sixth for the Condé Nast title. Lindsey previously appeared on the cover of Vogue Japan’s August 2014 issue.
It seems as though the September covers are not satisfying our forum members and Vogue Russia is no exception. “Oh stop!!!! This is getting hilarious! Where have all the Great Sept covers gone?!!?!???!!” exclaimed Miss Dalloway.
“Is this Harry Styles from One Direction? I think the title of this thread is very wrong…” commented miguelalmeida.
Another member not feeling the wig on Lindsey was gazebo, who posted, “People, bad hair is obviously IN VOGUE. Get used to it for at least a couple of months.”
“This is awful. I like the color palette, and I’m a fan of Lindsey, but this is pitiful. The hair and the styling are atrocious. Yikes,” wrote an unhappy MyNameIs.
Russian Vogue‘s take is the weakest cover of the lot, according to justaguy: “Oh man, another really bad Vogue September cover!! I think this is the worst.”
Lindsey also graces a 15-page fashion story inside the issue, which our forum members actually admire. “The edit is amazing though! The concept’s been done to death by US Vogue, but seems fresh with Lindsey & VR,” approved Benn98.
“Beautiful edit, I almost forget the wig. Good use of the settings. The photo with the men in uniforms is great, well done,” enthused Tony Fersen.
