With the news of Kate Lanphear‘s sudden departure from Maxim, the magazine shows no signs of giving up the good stuff, bestowing upon us a sultry and seductive December/January cover featuring Alessandra Ambrosio. Our forums usually depend on racy French publication Lui for something daring and provocative, but Maxim certainly delivered with this particular cover photo, lensed by Gilles Bensimon. The team took to the luxurious surroundings of Monte Carlo for the shoot with Alessandra captured wearing nothing but a diamond necklace, catching some rays while looking every inch the Brazilian bombshell.
“I find this extremely tacky, which is a shame cause Maxim was doing so good,” voiced kokobombon the moment the cover struck, unwilling to get us off to a positive start.
“Yikes, have I stumbled onto Playboy??? She looks like a 90s porn star on the cover. I think she’s got a stunning body, but the face, well, let’s just say she’s no oil painting. Not even the old Maxim would dare this,” added an uninterested Benn98.
But everyone else loved Alessandra’s revealing cover. “She looks fantastic, she’s such a great cover girl, this is probably my favorite from her after that awesome Russh cover from 2010,” praised MulletProof.
Forum member tigerrouge agreed, complimenting, “I actually think this is what Maxim should have been selling from the start – the only successful formula that could have replaced ‘boobs and beer’ is high-class sleaze, as if the readers have a supermodel on speed-dial for Saturday nights.”
“It’s tacky and it’s so 90s and I kind of love it???” admitted blueorchid, sharing the same sentiments.
In the same frame of mind was SpeakThatJDunn: “I actually LOVE the cover. The entire editorial is pure fire!”
