Edie Campbell is pretty hot right now, according to magazines worldwide that is. She’s featured on Vogue Paris‘ questionable February cover and now the Brit beauty has turned up on U.K. Vogue‘s March 2016 edition. Shot by Mario Testino, Edie’s welcomed back onto British Vogue‘s cover for a second time, photographed wearing an outfit by Gucci with styling from the magazine’s Lucinda Chambers. With a similar pose to her recent French Vogue cover, our forum members threw shade straight away.
Our eagle-eyed members noticed the similar pose immediately. “Well, almost the same (pose) as her Vogue Paris cover, how weird. This one is softer. I’m done with all those Gucci outfits everywhere…” said a disapproving Nymphaea.
“I want to like it, but there’s something wrong with it without a doubt. It somehow looks like a Tatler cover. That pose must be her new signature cause there’s no way VP and VUK talked about using that same pose. And the pink font below blending… No,” heckled MON.
Srdjan was quick to share his displeasure. “Looking at these spring colours, I’m supposed to love this, but Edie simply doesn’t work for me. She’s got this worn and reckless look I dislike especially in a setting like this. I’m not keen on the hand-in-mouth pose mostly,” he mocked.
Echoing the same attitude was kokobombon: “What is it with Edie and her thumb on the mouth?! A new signature pose? I wish there wasn’t so much pink on the cover and that her hair was more put together but it’s not a bad cover IMO.”
Also willing to reason with the cover was justaguy, voicing, “As much as I feel this cover is almost lazy (hello, it’s Testino), I do like the playfulness of Edie’s pose and the use of the soft spring colors. The text, on the other hand, doesn’t work too well. Need more contrast to pop against all the color in the background.”
LastNight sure was a fan, disagreeing with the majority as he raved, “Gorgeous! I love this, it’s so pretty and springy without being sickly sweet (a trap U.K. Vogue has a tendency to fall into). Edie looks great, I love the pose.”
