Is Victoria Beckham’s Vogue Australia Cover Outstanding — or a Photoshop Disaster? (Forum Buzz)

We’ve been waiting for this one to drop ever since we were treated to a tidbit in our Cover Rumor Thread and the wait is finally over. Victoria Beckham graces the cover of Vogue Australia like never before. Captured by master of portraits Patrick Demarchelier with styling from Christine Centenera, everyone’s favorite pop star-turned-fashion designer wears an intriguing Louis Vuitton creation.

Yet our forum members were left with mixed feelings. “This is awful. Her head looks disproportionately large for her body. It’s freaky. Also she looks depressed,” MyNameIs announced, clearly not a fan of what’s on offer.

“Her awful facial expression throws me off. This could be a perfect cover, but her facial expression ruins everything,” condemned fluxxx.

Also not feeling it was Creative: “It looks like they cut the head from another picture and Photoshopped it on the dress. Creepy. And the dress looks 2D while her head looks too 3D. So weird.”

“Given how overwhelming the LV dress is, it does look like they Photoshopped Victoria’s head onto the cover haha. That being said I do love the direction – the way that strand of hair curls around the byline is pure magic,” shared Cosmic Voices, shedding light on the cover as things started to shape up.

“What a stunning portrait. Victoria and Demarchelier add so much drama to this odd LV dress. This feels much lighter than the past VA covers (last August was just as great),” Benn98 admired.

Miss Dalloway was in love too, raving, “LOVE this (a bit Gertrude Bell, no?), when would you EVER see VB wear something like this? Her face expression goes perfectly with the styling, and feel of the cover.”
