Vogue Germany managed to excite last month, creating four fabulous covers featuring model-of-the-moment Anna Ewers. But the magazine has let standards slip with its April follow-up. French model Aymeline Valade, clad in a show-stopping creation from Armani Privé‘s Spring Haute Couture collection, stars on the cover which falls unexpectedly flat. Shot by Giampaolo Sgura and styled by Christiane Arp, forum members are decidedly split on their opinions of the image.
Leave it to our feisty forums to tell it like it is. “My first reaction when I saw this was Medusa!” announced Nymphaea within seconds of the cover surfacing.
Moofins was quick to comment, “The hair is a tragedy. The layout is a tragedy. This cover is dismal.”
Also sharing the same sentiments was marsnoop2 who echoed, “This is just ugly. Really damn ugly all around. I find no redeemable qualities at all.”
Miss Dalloway had a different opinion, however. “I absolutely love this cover, if it was any other model, I might not be sold on the styling, and the hair! But Aymeline totally owns it, and pulls it off,” she enthused.
“The first time I love a Vogue Germany cover. Love the colors and that hair. Simple and beautiful without trying it too hard,” Housseyin complimented.
