Vogue Brazil took a major risk for its big spring fashion issue by tapping a relatively unknown model to cover its March edition and we applauded the publication for it. But the magazine is back on more comfortable turf this month, securing none other than Alessandra Ambrosio as its April 2016 cover girl. The Brazilian beauty was shot by photographer and long-term friend Mariano Vivanco for the occasion and the shoot was apparently so good that Brazilian Vogue opted to produce two covers for us (to pick apart). Posing before a wall of intriguing floral wallpaper, Alessandra models a selection of tailored pieces by Dolce & Gabbana, leaving our forums divided.
Our forum members couldn’t wait to dissect both covers. “This looks like something Vogue U.K. would put out in 2002. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing. I like the second cover [below] better,” announced mikel the moment the covers came to light.
“The second cover is certainly the better one, but both are so forgettable and lifeless,” added Benn98.
Also equally unimpressed with Vogue Brazil’s offering was MON: “The second cover has so much attitude, yet it falls flat for a Vogue cover.”
“What? Most tFS forum members can design a better cover than this. Ugh,” declared gossiping.
Bertrando3 agreed, chiming in, “It looks very fake and amateurish looking, indeed many people here could have done a MUCH better job.”
“Oh, Vogue Brazil, why? What a disappointment. You’re better than that,” posted a frustrated guimon.
Agreeing with the majority was kokobombon, confessing, “They’re not bad covers but they don’t have that ‘wow’ factor that I expect from Vogue. I prefer the second cover, I think the styling is more interesting.”
