Alessandra Ambrosio and Vogue Brazil go together like Kate Moss and U.K. Vogue. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that Alessandra fronts the January 2015 issue of the Brazilian fashion bible. At least Vogue Brazil kicks off 2015 with a model on its front cover, right? Alessandra was photographed on the tranquil beaches of St Barth. As the sweeping blue ocean plays background to the cover shot, the 33-year-old mother of two gives us good face while wearing a sweater from Louis Vuitton, posing with her arms slung above her head and gazing down Patrick Demarchelier’s lens.
But something is bothering quite a few of our forum members. “She looks great here. The puffy eyes immediately puts me off, but the breeziness of the shot makes it better. Not too sure about the layout, some parts could be bolder, and maybe ditch the red?” suggested Benn98, picking up on both the good and bad points.
“I love the layout, the coordination between the red of the masthead matching her top and the lipstick is perfect in my opinion. Her pose and hair are on point. The styling is kinda meh, but I like the top because of the color coordination. I agree the eyes are a little on the puffy side and as always I wish her mouth were a little more closed (but it works here for me with the beach setting). Lastly, congrats on Ale’s 10th Vogue cover!” shared marsnoop2.
KateTheGreatest also provided a comment about Alessandra’s eyes: “Her eyes always bother me and they look even more weird on this cover.”
Sharing the same sentiments was DutchHomme, who posted, “This cover does nothing for me & she looks cross-eyed.”
“What’s wrong with her eyes? And the styling is awful,” questioned narcyza.
