As documented across social media, Bella Hadid (along with Natalie Westling) shot for Vogue Italia’s forthcoming June 2017 edition with photographic duo Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin requesting Bella cut her hair especially for the occasion. Bella showcases her newly shorn bob haircut while posing solo atop an exercise bike while wearing Chanel (as one does).

A vast majority of our forum members were disappointed by the highly anticipated cover. “I’ll wait for July. VI’s new goal: Get different photographers to imitate Meisel’s work? I’ve never seen an I&V photo like that,” voiced Scotty.
“Okay… next!” declared an uninterested MDNA.
“Can’t stand this girl and her dead face… I hope Natalie has a cover too,” stated sixtdaily, underwhelmed by Bella’s best effort.
TaylorBinque wasn’t buying it either. “So VI really misses Meisel I guess, but Bella can’t model. Tyra would’ve sent her home long ago because she can’t rely on her pretty face. But then again, she has massive following, so all works fine. The font colors just make this look even more bland,” he exclaimed in disbelief.
Narcyza agreed, saying, “It would’ve been a great cover with a different model. That Instagirl looks frozen to me!”
“This is bad, the missing ‘U’ is really bothering me and the font is pretentious and tacky. Bella herself is doing good, but the rest…” complained whitewine82.
“I like it but not sure about the font colors,” quipped forum member liv4beauty.
TashaRose agreed: “A really nice shot of Bella is just ruined with this hideous font.”
Better luck next month, Vogue Italia. Await more from the issue and add your own two cents here.
