The beautiful portrait shot of Karen Elson on Vogue Ukraine’s September cover is soon to shift from newsstands, making way for the magazine’s October 2014 issue. Hana Jirickova stars on the front cover, which was photographed by Nagi Sakai. The 23-year-old model from the Czech Republic wears a scarlet red off-the-shoulder dress from Dolce & Gabbana as she reclines romantically on a chair draped in a blue silk fabric, resembling a painting from the 18th century.
Something else has caught the attention of our forum members, though. “This would’ve been nice if the model had decent hair instead of that dirty mop lookalike she has on,” commented MyNameIs.
“The hairstylist never made it to the shoot?” questioned MON, clearly not an admirer of the hairstylist’s work.
Also noticing the horrific hairstyle was Anna147, who writes, “She looks great, but I don’t like the hair at all… It’s ugly, doesn’t fit into the concept at all.”
“Love the richness of the cover, the colors are beautiful, so what happened to poor Hana? Did they forget to finish her hair and makeup???” agreed justaguy.
“Horrible cover! I hate it!! What a horrible hair style and pose. Just No,” declared fashionlover2001.
On the other hand, Benn98 couldn’t contain his excitement: “The rise and rise of Hana! I’m not complaining. It’s an image for a cover, but the wine red offers a romantic mood here. The main editorial will probably be stronger. Vogue Ukraine rarely disappoints.”
“What a gorgeous cover! Hana looks fantastic, its charmingly picturesque,” posted Miss Dalloway, sharing a positive attitude toward the cover.
