Freja Beha Erichsen’s Makeup Ruins Vogue China’s April Cover for Us (Forum Buzz)

Sometimes all it takes is just one element to ruin an otherwise strong cover photo. Vogue China‘s latest installment featuring Freja Beha Erichsen is a perfect example. Photographed by Craig McDean wearing Louis Vuitton, there’s something about Erichsen’s cover that was really bugging forum members.

“Oh man, horrible. The makeup isn’t doing her any favors,” Nymphaea declared.

“Oh dear!! It doesn’t even look like Freja. The clumped mascara and glossy lips just makes it worse. Quite arguably the worst cover I’ve seen under Angelica Chueng. And worse still, McDean shot this,” disapproved Benn98.

MON wasn’t feeling the cover either. “I’m not that fond of the angle. This doesn’t give her beauty any justice,” he slammed.

“The makeup is the only thing to blame. Flat cover obviously, but as Vogue China likes to put the least attractive photo on the cover, I still look forward to the whole ed,” said HelaFav5, shifting the negativity slightly.

The rest of our forum members soon began to disagree. “I like it, I like the makeup, and the hair, she looks slightly different than usual,” admired Miss Dalloway.

Gossiping was quick to enthuse, “This is cool and super chic, love the styling!”
