Ever since the start of 2015, we’ve became huge supporters of Lui. The magazine has been consistent in producing captivating and visually stimulating covers and tapping the likes of Camille Rowe and the gorgeous Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Unfortunately, the racy title appears to have taken four steps backwards with the release of its July/August issue. Marie de Villepin poses in a rather gimmicky cover shoot with a nipple out while strumming a guitar.
Members of our forums are far from impressed. “I suppose people won’t care about her more controversial father, lol. The cover shot looks very amateur, and the baring boob actually looks out of place,” Benn98 discredited.
“I wanted something new from them but not this tragic!” said a horrified MON.
Also unimpressed was KateTheGreatest: “One of a few ones that I don’t like. I don’t even know who this woman is and to be honest I don’t care. Bring back models,” she campaigned.
Miss Dalloway agreed, adding, “Yes, excuse me while I pretend to play my guitar with my boob out! The worst cover from them in a long time!”
“She’s the daughter of a big French politician and used to be dating Amber Heard but that cover is terrible. It looks fake,” Oxymore exclaimed soon after.
Echoing the same sentiments was justaguy: “This is just bad. They’ve had a couple tacky covers in the past, but this is their worst.”
“This is horrific how was it even allowed to be published? The magazine needs to be careful if they wish to maintain a credible reputation,” suggested mcmarket.
