Emmanuelle Alt sure loves a good throwback, tapping 90s supermodel Christy Turlington for Vogue Paris’ latest cover. After last month’s cover star, transgender bombshell Valentina Sampaio, sent shockwaves through the industry (and our forums), French Vogue continues to make bold choices for April 2017. Captured by Dutch photographic duo Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Christy flashes her signature energetic smile while wearing a shocking-pink pleated Valentino Haute Couture number in the electrifying cover photo.
The majority of our forum members couldn’t believe their eyes — and not necessarily in a good way. “Absolute eyesore. Christy looks awful too,” exclaimed a horrified anlabe32 after the cover dropped.
