She’s becoming a firm favorite among fashion industry insiders, scoring the January 2014 cover of Vogue Netherlands, appearing inside Vogue Australia and now Crista Cober scores the September cover of Vogue Turkey. Photographed by Cuneyt Akeroglu and styled by Konca Aykan, the Canadian beauty wears a transparent plastic Miu Miu coat with the collar standing up, covering the bottom half of her face. Crista’s minimal makeup and tight curls, which are styled over to one side of her face, help make for an eye-catching cover.
Our forum members have mixed reactions, though. “Not familiar with the model, I thought it was Julia Frauche at first. I think I like it. The use of that transparent coat is a little off but it somehow works, it also helps that she has really pretty eyes,” commented Cotton.
“It would have been better with a top model. It’s not bad but she’s not selling it,” wrote GivenchyHomme.
MON just wasn’t feeling it: “Wow that cover is a mess. The layout is beyond terrible. Fonts galore. And the hashtag.. please.”
“I like [the] color palette, nothing more,” declared narcyza.
“I love it, it’s fun and it jumps out at you,” enthused TREVOFASHIONISTO, who changed the mood of the thread.
Tinsley V shared his positive attitude: “This is really cool! I loved the first cover so much more though, better colors and had much more impact with the minimal font. I love the use of the hashtag too … crazy how one programmer from Twitter introduced it on his site and now it’s universal to the point of it appearing on Turkish Vogue. Perfect for a pop culture cover imo.”
