Our forum members have been on edge this week, questioning the whereabouts of Vogue Italia‘s March cover due to the release being unexpectedly late. We needn’t worry anymore as the magazine finally revealed the much-anticipated cover via its website earlier today. To our amazement, Mia Goth takes the honor of fronting the fashion bible, handpicked by Steven Meisel for Italian Vogue‘s big spring fashion issue. Mia (best known for dating Hollywood bad boy Shia LaBeouf) appears in a moody, grungy and depressing cover image styled by Karl Templer.
After a rumor hit our forums last month, we were expecting to see Gisele Bündchen. “After the cover rumor, I was all geared up for Gisele, so this seems like the lackluster antithesis of anything she’d have to offer. Somber covers from Vogue Italia are becoming boring in their own way,” expressed tigerrouge.
“All the waiting for this crap?” asked an underwhelmed zacatecas570.
“Don’t like it all. They’ve been doing these dark covers for a while now, they could do something more light for spring, also the hair bothers me a lot,” KateTheGreatest replied, not showing support for the cover, either.
Bruce7Lee even went so far as to declare, “This is probably the worst cover of VI in a long time.”
Is it really so bad? Our forum members certainly aren’t having any of it. “Lazy. Lazy. Lazy. Are they entering a dark era? The color scheme of the 3 covers this year are all identical! Stop pushing the olive scheme Italian Vogue!” suggested MON.
“This could have been a very haunting/fantastic cover but her face is weak/bad/bland,” DutchHomme contributed.
