U.K. Vogue‘s July offering with Stella Tennant basically bombed on our forums and the dull cover will (thankfully) soon vanish from newsstands, making way for a set of flashy, fabulously tacky covers featuring a blonder than usual Lara Stone. Photographed by Mario Testino, the current face of Kurt Geiger posed before a white studio backdrop wearing glitzy designs from J.W.Anderson (left) and Versace (right).
Forum members flocked to the thread within seconds. “Finally! I couldn’t stand that Stella cover anymore. I don’t really know what cover I like the best. The cat kind of annoys me. I like the Versace one but her pose is not the best, she looks uncomfortable,” Oxymore described right away.
“I like the first cover. I sort of get that she’s meant to look like a socialite/Donatella-esque person. I kind of like it. Least they attempted something this month, and I’m all for Lara on the cover. It’s a bit of a waste of her but still, let’s be thankful it doesn’t look like a grey day in January like last month’s,” added honeycombchild.
“This is SO bad it’s good. I think it’s meant to be tacky, and let’s be honest, when was the last time they dared to style their cover into something not boring?” appreciated Miss Dalloway.
Chanelcouture09 showed both covers some enthusiasm too. “I love both covers! I’m surprised how much I like the J.W.Anderson cover over the Versace cover. I also love the blonder hair on Lara,” he noted.
“I’m surprised. I hate U.K. Vogue and I don’t like Lara but they somehow made it work and this is cool,” admitted a surprised gossiping.
Also in the mood was tigerrouge: “I like the tackiness of it, finally a U.K. Vogue cover that feels alive, if not to everyone’s tastes. A few decent editorials, some new season ads, and my only problem with the issue would be choosing which cover to get.”
