We’ve certainly witnessed our fair share of multi-girl covers this spring, and now U.K. Vogue carries on the theme. Vogue revealed its April installment over the weekend and, given the girls who stand before Mario Testino‘s lens on the cover image, it spread like wildfire across the forums. Georgia May Jagger, Cara Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse give us their best supermodel stares, wearing an array of embellished see-through gowns. Cara and Georgia have, of course, been previous cover stars for British Vogue, but this marks a first for Suki.
But our forum members couldn’t be more disinterested. “So basically  look-alike blondes. Meh,” HeatherAnne scolded within moments of the thread being active.
“No. Just… no,” added Marc10, suggesting he wasn’t an admirer of Vogue‘s efforts this time around, either. Creative used the word “disgusting” to describe the cover. Oh dear, this doesn’t sound too good for sales this month.
Also not showing support was A.D.C.: “Couldn’t they put Jourdan on the cover and replace one of the blondes? It would have shown continued support for her and it would have been awesome if she’d landed two covers so close together but I guess her cover was a one-time thing. I’m sure it’ll be another decade before a black model lands on one again. That Shulman! So progressive. Rolls eyes.”
Our discussion soon moved to the subject of diversity. “Oh fashion. Where Suki Waterhouse can land a cover for having just a Burberry campaign while Jourdan needs to slay every part of the industry and wait over 5 years to get one. Pays to be white, blonde, and nepotistic,” said Gabriel29, making a very valid point.
“This magazine needs some fresh ideas,” slammed an underwhelmed Nepenthes.
