April covers are coming in thick and fast. Vogue Australia‘s newly-released cover is the most recent to drop in our forums and we’re left undecided. Coming back for a second time since Edwina McCann took the helm, Cate Blanchett stars on the magazine’s April 2015 cover. We appreciate the team giving us something different, but the majority of us can’t pinpoint what’s exactly bothering us. Cate sat for Emma Summerton wearing a baby pink jacket teamed with an eye-catching headpiece, and you’ll either love it or hate it.
Our forum members share mixed opinions on Vogue Australia’s efforts this month. “So striking and fresh. Always a pleasure to see Cate in all of her glory! Definitely one of my favorite and most talented actresses!” hailed Nepenthes as soon as the cover surfaced, kicking us off on a high note.
“I love the cover, so elegant and lovely. I like the styling, it has that Dutch painting thing going on. I also like the layout and the negative effect on the masthead. And of course, I love Cate,” kokobombon enthused.
“Wow. Very, very cool. Much better than her last cover,” responded YourMonster.
But the rest of us just aren’t feeling it. “Seriously though, what have they done to her face?” questioned Kite, hinting at a possible Photoshop blunder.
“I love her but I honestly wouldn’t mind if she took like a two year break. Absence makes the heart grow fonder and it would make for an epic welcome back,” A.D.C. ranted.
Oxymore was quick to complain: “Cate doesn’t look like herself. Those celebrities need to stop pretending they’re 25. Just assume your age. I mean look at Meryl Streep or Jessica Lange, they are so gorgeous.”
