We haven’t seen an issue of POP magazine in a hot minute, but the title reminds us of its existence by unveiling its upcoming Spring/Summer 2016 edition this week. In true biannual magazine fashion, POP serves up multiple covers, putting out three different covers that have surely caught our attention. Naomi Campbell and A$AP Rocky cozy up on cover one by Brianna Capozzi, Natalia Vodianova fronts the second by Harley Weir, while Daria Werbowy poses for Juergen Teller for the third and final cover.
But our forum members weren’t buying any of the covers. “What the hell is this?” asked a horrified Royal-Galliano with Creative shortly adding, “Not cool at all,” the moment the covers surfaced, unwilling to set the discussion off on a positive note.
“I kind of like Daria and a bit more Natalia. But what is happening to Naomi? She’s been looking so unnatural for the last two years. I must say that the selection of models looks a bit tired. I love these girls but I feel like I’ve been seeing these combinations for the last 10-12 years now…” critiqued KissMiss.
Also not feeling it was MulletProof, ranting, “I just can’t warm up to these ‘raw Daria’ covers… she’s always been a one-track model, like one walking editorial that the rest of the editorials she does have to adapt to, it doesn’t help that Juergen’s best days are long behind us and the result is just flat and as vacant as she looks.”
“The covers are fine! My fave is Daria’s because every day in print, she shows her natural and her rock style. Naomi’s looks like a fragrance advert, but the shot is good. Natalia looks dumb on her cover and is the worst one of all them,” chimed in burbuja8910.
“Natalia looks like a beautiful young boy who has raided his attic for clothes and I love it. Not sure Daria does anything for me in this shot,” contradicted dodencebt.
Eek! POP‘s latest covers have certainly received mixed reviews. Are you a fan? Add your own two cents here.
