Leave it to Lui to deliver the most visually stimulating September cover. Joan Smalls joins the likes of Gisele Bündchen, Anja Rubik and Natasha Poly, who have each stripped for the racy French publication. This time around, we get an unconventional cover image with Smalls posing naked with a phone on a bed covered in PVC plastic — as we all do. Luigi and Iango captured the shot and our forums are left gagging for more.
As always, forum members couldn’t wait to see Lui‘s new installment. “Gorgeously unconventional cover, but one that works,” Miss Dalloway praised immediately.
“Back to doing something (in)decent. I’m not sure what she’s lying on, but I like it,” said tigerrogue.
Also impressed was Melancholybaby: “Now that is a gorgeous cover. A touch of [Guy] Bourdin, an unconventional pose and catchy colors and you have a great September offering.”
Justaguy couldn’t contain his excitement either, raving, “Absolutely beautiful cover. Love the props and the 70s vibe I get from it.”
Soon after, Avogadro went as far as to proclaim: “I think this is the best cover of Joan.”
“Stunning!! That makeup is on point!” MON pointed out.
“Oh wow, surprisingly I like it. Never would’ve expected her on this cover though. The composition and her make-up looks perfect,” agreed Benn98.
