Actress Daisy Ridley continues to gain momentum in the fashion industry, having recently proven herself on the November cover of American Vogue. The Brit delivers the goods once again as she fronts V Magazine‘s elegant cover feature for Winter 2017. With a completely different look than the Vogue shoot, Daisy does ladylike glamour for a series of portraits shot by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin and styled by Mel Ottenberg. In the cover image, Daisy works a Louis Vuitton tuxedo jacket and a crisp white shirt teamed with a pair of jeans, flashing a perfect smile.
Unfortunately, the cover ultimately failed to make an impact in our forums. “I like the cute intentional cheesiness of the smile, the hand whipping the hair and her hand on her hip. Reminds me when Scarlett Johansson was photographed for V in moody femme fatale lighting and styling, and instead of the usual sexy scowl, she had big cheesy smiles,” commented t-rex upon checking out the cover.
“I like that they went for something different and someone new, but this looks very Glamour. Still, I’m glad for Daisy. Things are finally happening for her,” Benn98 added.
Also liking the outcome was dodencebt. “Much more natural and inviting than the US Vogue cover if you ask me, although it’s too artificially grainy,” he pointed out as discussion began to head south.
“Too casual for V Magazine,” voiced phungnam96.
GivenchyHomme echoed the same sentiments: “This looks like a Gap campaign. It’s wrong for a cover, especially for this title.”
“Her best cover so far. Maybe not mind-blowing (what is even close these days?), but she looks beautiful!” reasoned Fiercification.
