Catherine McNeil Looks Like a Wax Figure on Vogue Mexico’s April Cover (Forum Buzz)

Aussie models are on fire this month, snagging Vogue covers left, right and center. After Abbey Lee Kershaw set our forums ablaze on Vogue Korea, now Catherine McNeil graces the cover of Vogue Mexico‘s newly-released April 2015 issue. Photographed by James Macari, the model was captured in a vibrant sports-inspired orange dress by Alexander Wang. Unfortunately, Catherine ultimately ends up looking like a wax figure. Below is the main newsstand cover, while the remaining two images with the Vogue masthead layered over are part of the cover’s fold-out.

Per usual, our feisty forum members aren’t afraid to let their opinions be known. “Wow these three are unflattering. She doesn’t look herself. The hair looks heavy. The layout is a mess. The light blue is out of place. NOPE,” slammed MON.

“They should have just chosen the 2nd cover and [not] released the rest,” khyrk suggested.

“IMO the 2nd and 3rd cover work best, her expression and pose look off in the main one,” agreed¬†kokobombon.

The makeup soon became the topic of discussion with JessRubik posting, “I’m not loving that red lipstick on her, it doesn’t suit her.”

Bertrando3 also wasn’t a fan. “Very unflattering cover shots OMG it looks awful.¬†Catherine is a great working model and she is beautiful so the hair and makeup and photography let her down big time. Vogue Mexico has produced beautiful covers in the past, this one is just not one of them,” he commented.

Sharing the same sentiments was Polevshchikova: “Again an amazing model and a terrible cover.”
