Kate Moss’ festive December covers for U.K. Vogue are about to disappear from newsstands as we move swiftly on to the January issue. Released via its website earlier today, the British glossy welcomes Freja Beha Erichsen back to its cover, marking the Danish model’s fifth appearance since her debut for the magazine back in August 2010. Photographed by Alasdair McLellan wearing a casual sweater and jeans from Gucci, Freja stands before a warm beige background with her brunette tresses styled into a 70s-inspired hairdo.
Naturally, our forum members began to weigh in the moment the cover surfaced. “Very down to earth, not really my cup of tea. Her hair looks too fuzzy, love her face, her left eye has more mascara than the right and too much sparkle in both eyes. The cover looks better from afar than in close-up,” commented Nymphaea, not getting us off to a positive start.
“Very random to choose Freja and boring as hell,” added an underwhelmed jj36.
Forum member marsnoop2 simply posted the word “drab” inside the thread. Ouch!
“I love the color scheme. I love the fact that it is Freja and she’s undeniably beautiful. I love the softness of the cover and it’s a relaxing one to look at. But somehow looking at the image thoroughly gives me the impression of it being a catalog shot. It’s like a Nordstrom catalog shot,” proclaimed MON.
But a select few forum members approved. “I like it. It’s a beautiful clean and simple cover,” noted fashionlover2001.
Mrs.T was certainly an admirer and enthused, “I just love seeing her on the covers!!”
Also appreciative was Cosmic Voices: “There’s a slightly disheveled, throwback, anarchic girl vibe that really identifies itself with British Vogue imo so this cover is pretty perfect. I love Freja too so that helps.”
