She’s already scored the cover of Vogue Russia this month and now Natasha Poly steals the show on the front of Vogue Paris‘ September edition. We had been anticipating the outcome of this particular shoot for a while after Emmanuelle Alt and photographer Mert Alas documented their visit to Turkey with the Russian beauty back in June. The result is finally here and the current face of Isabel Marant looks as fierce as ever on her 50th Vogue cover, wearing a luxurious fur over her bare skin complete with tribal-inspired accessories as she scorches under the searing Turkish sun.
Presenting the cover: @NatashaPoly plays free spirit for Mert & Marcus, on the cover of the September issue, out August 20. Styled by @EmmanuelleAlt, hair by @1malcolmedwards, make-up by @thevalgarland @mertalas @macpiggott #VogueParis #Vogue #NatashaPoly #EmmanuelleAlt #MertandMarcus #Septemberissue #Fall
The cover, however, left some of our forum members cold. “I’m happy that Natasha is on the cover but the outcome is not the best. It looks like they tried to go for a Veruschka vibe but it went really bad,” Melancholybaby described straight away.
“OMGGGG, this is terrible!” an unimpressed Creative added.
Also not buying it was Benn98: “No thank you!! I’m sorry, but everything is a mess here. Without a doubt their worst cover for this year. The styling, blonde hair, and that awful layout. What is she even wearing?”
HeatherAnne wrote, “Looks like a C-list Vogue like Vogue Portugal, Vogue Spain, etc. Keep sinking that ship, Alt.”
Forum member Oxymore was left disappointed too. “I don’t really know what to think about this one. I’m happy that it’s shot outside because I was tired of the white or gray background. I really like the styling. The hair & makeup is nice too but it’s probably Natasha’s pose that bothers me the most. The angle is wrong imo. Maybe the layout bothers me too,” she wondered.
