She’s the model of the moment, fronting both the Versace and Prabal Gurung fall campaigns and now, Caroline Trentini turns up on the cover of Vogue Japan. Like clockwork, the magazine releases its issue before anyone else and it’s almost hard to believe we’re discussing October already (because September issues are soo last month). Styled by Anna Dello Russo, Caroline models a rather hideous Christian Dior jumpsuit, but like a pro, successfully manages to do it justice before the lens of Giampaolo Sgura.
Members of our forums began to discuss the cover right away. “Worst Vogue Japan I’ve ever seen,” DutchHomme declared the minute the cover broke, unwilling to get us off on a high note.
“I’m just ready for this season to be over so that these hideous Dior jumpsuits can go away,” shared an unimpressed orchidee.
Also unimpressed was littlekiki, announcing, “Sgura’s work always disappoints me.”
“Dislike the jumpsuit and there’s too much text (as always for me), but other than that it’s quite good,” shared KateTheGreatest as opinions started to change.
TeeVanity approved: “You know what this actually works maybe if it was a different model it wouldn’t work but Caroline pulls it off, good job.”
In agreement was Style Savvy. “Caroline makes that awful Dior jumpsuit work. Great color scheme,” he applauded.
“Yes! Finally another fun and energetic cover from VJ,” MDNA admired.
The accompanying cover story is a far cry from the energetic cover image. Check it out and join the conversation here.
