Vogue Spain seems to have returned to its old ways, churning out flat and mediocre covers in recent months, even after serving up some fantastic covers at the start of the year. The presence of Lucky Blue Smith failed to ignite interest last month and now with Andreea Diaconu on the cover of the September issue, Spanish Vogue still can’t catch a break. Returning for a third time, the Romanian model was photographed by Ezra Petronio and does “high fashion denim” in a trench by Miu Miu.
But for September, our forum members expected a whole lot more. “I love Andreea, but not amazed by this. Outfit is not my cup of tea, nor is the layout. However, maybe it looks better in real life, who knows,” shared Srdjan the moment the cover broke.
“The background is awful and the denim isn’t helping at all, only her face is beautiful, that’s it. Overall not good,” slated Nymphaea.
Also not in the mood was anlabe32, confessing, “Such a typical Vogue Spain cover choice. Andreea, Edita, Toni, Irina etc. Definitely the most commercial edition of all Vogues. Horrible outfit, harsh lighting, unbalanced text placement.”
“A denim look? Really? For the cover of September issue?” asked a mortified whitewine92.
Kokobombon wasn’t exactly inspired either, writing, “The hair and makeup had so much potential but denim on a September cover is so sad and uninspiring IMO. Plus, the background is distracting.”
In the same frame of mind was MON: “I seriously don’t get this cover. The styling is beyond words, The harsh lighting and most especially, that background. They could have gone with the plain white. The layout, come on!”
“Horrible!” described a disgruntled burbuja8910.
