Who says September issues are the most desirable of the year? Vogue Netherlands has gone all-out to impress with its March issue. To commemorate Doutzen Kroes’ 30th birthday, the magazine dedicated the big spring fashion issue to the Dutch model, handing her a set of three fabulous celebratory covers (now if that ain’t a birthday present, we don’t know what is). Photographed by Paul Bellaart, Jan Welters and Nico Bustos, we are treated to three different sides of the radiant beauty who, on the cover below, was shot alongside her two small children. Aww!
It didn’t take our forum members long to voice which cover out of the three is their favorite. Check them out for yourself here.
“I think it looks like a cheaper version of something Vogue Paris would do and I don´t like kids on fashion covers at all and at least show the baby’s face. Nico’s cover is the worst imo. I like Welters’ cover the best though it doesn’t blow my mind. I´m looking forward to the editorial,” shared kokobombon, who didn’t show much enthusiasm toward any of the covers.
“Bellaart’s cover had the most potential amongst the three. Look how ethereal Doutzen looks in that shot. Even the hair amazes me and that stare. What bothers me the most in this cover is that the second child (lower right) seems Photoshopped to fit the cover. Unless that’s a tall child, there’s no way in hell that a child that age, while seemingly crouching, is at the same height as Doutzen’s waist,” MON criticized.
Forum members continued to announce their favorite. “I love the Chanel one the best, it’s the most ‘fashiony,’ it gives me Sixties realness,” appreciated gazebo.
TeeVanity agreed: “The Paul Bellaart and Jan Welters covers are beautiful, Doutzen is everything.”
“What a stunning trio of covers! My favorite is the Jan Welters one; kind of reminds me of that Castaway story Doutzen did for U.K. Vogue a while back,” added Nepenthes.
