There’s often so much shade thrown at magazines these days, but it’s almost impossible not to congratulate Vogue Australia on its latest effort. As reported in our Cover Rumor Thread, Nicole Kidman participated in a shoot with Will Davidson and the incredible stylist that is Christine Centenera last month. The outcome of the shoot on location in the Australian outback ended up as Vogue‘s all-important September cover feature — and we’re sold. The Aussie actress appears stunning and natural like never before in front of Davidson’s lens wearing a beige suede jacket teamed with a plain white dress, proving less is always more.
Forum members couldn’t wait to express their delight. “BEYOND her U.S. cover! Beyond! This is how U.S. Vogue should’ve done it,” shouted MON.
“Vogue U.S. should be so embarrassed! You can’t beat Will Davidson’s outdoor photography,” HeatherAnne agreed.
GreyVetiver was full of admiration, too, declaring, “Anna [Wintour] should be ashamed of her team.”
Also full of praise was GlamVal. “I love it.. Better than American Vogue,” he wrote with TaylorBinque adding, “A huge slap at Vogue U.S. I’m loving this.”
Benn98 quickly said, “Love this, Nicole’s first Vogue Australia cover in quite a few years, and it’s beautiful.”
“TONS better than her Vogue U.S. cover but I still really dislike her,” expressed KateTheGreatest as things started to go a little down under.
“Better than U.S. Vogue but the hair is dreadful,” noted ThatGuyPaul.
