It’s hard to believe that we’re starting to see May covers already and, like clockwork, Vogue Japan is the first to drop in our forums. Actress Léa Seydoux fronts the newest issue — surely to balance out April’s multi-model cover. The French beauty is a worthy cover star as she’s set to make a splash in the James Bond Spectre film in the fall, not to mention her affiliation with both Prada and Miu Miu.
But our forum members aren’t sure about a certain change in the cover design. “God! This is so ELLE! No white background looks cheap!” declared poison84 immediately.
“Vogue Japan without the white background is not Vogue Japan at all. The white background is their identity! I am not impressed. This is the rare example wherein change is not accepted,” agreed MON.
DutchHomme also questioned, “Where is the white background?”
Forum member gossiping certainly wasn’t feeling it and voiced, “Huh? This isn’t Vogue Japan at all. I don’t like it, I want to see models as well.”
Yet not everyone was against the change. “Finally something different for Vogue Japan. And you can’t go wrong with Léa,” noted [Piece Of Me].
“Amazing, finally a cover of Vogue Japan without the white background,” burbuja8910 complimented.
Also full of praise and admiration was YourMonster: “It looks awesome. Nice to see something different.”
We certainly are a hard bunch to satisfy. Be sure to share your own opinion with us inside the thread here.
