After rave reviews for Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s cover for Vogue Mexico’s November issue, the magazine now releases its latest installment. Issa Lish stars on the December 2014 cover as well as Vogue Latin America’s December cover. Photographed by Alexei Hay, the Mexican model strikes her best pose while wearing a show-stopping ensemble from Balmain. According to our forum members, this is the first time in ages a Mexican model has fronted Vogue Mexico, so major kudos to them!
Yet our forum members are left with mixed reactions. “Wow, I’m bored to death,” disapproves xCupcakex.
Oxymore doesn’t seem impressed: “I love that red Balmain fur! But her… she looks bored or on drugs.”
“She looks half sleep/bored to death on the cover,” slates inwhiterooms.
Issa cannot catch a break from our forum members this time around. “Her career didn’t really go anywhere did it?” questions an underwhelmed A.D.C.
TREVOFASHIONISTO soon comes to Issa’s defense and replies, “Steven Meisel Vogue Italia anniversary cover, a Coach campaign by Steven Meisel, the Balmain campaign by Mario Sorrenti, very exclusive and top notch runway season, and an OG Vogue Mexico cover not a good career for a model’s first full season? Vogue Mexico may not be the biggest of Vogues but I’m sure for her (being Mexican) it’s probably a proud moment for her and her family.”
“I’m here for Issa! Not in the slightest groundbreaking but Issa looks outstanding. How long has it been since a Mexican model has been on their cover? Way too long!” enthuses TheoG.
Issa was shot for a series of fashion stories for the issue and those can, of course, be previewed inside the thread here. Be sure to also let us know what you think of Vogue Mexico’s efforts this month!
