Models are a rarity on mainstream American fashion magazines nowadays but as the September issues continue to trickle out, Glamour hands its most important edition of the year to Karlie Kloss. After celebrating her 23rd birthday only yesterday, we suspect this will be a nice treat for the American beauty. The current face of Diane von Furstenberg was shot by Tom Munro doing her very best to model her way through a truly hideous Gucci dress.
But can a model of Karlie’s stature convince our forum members? “How great is it that one of the most mainstream fashion magazines in America went for an American model? Must applaud them for this. Also, Glamour has been stepping it up of late. Their cover stars are real cultural forces, whether the actual shot may be good or not,” credited Benn98.
“Beautiful colors. Beautiful girl. Beautiful editorial. Ugly dress,” exclaimed a horrified MON, suggesting the styling ruins the entire cover.
“Ugly Gucci dress, looks like a mop,” laughed Nymphaea who then went on to add, “Karlie looks nice, a bit heavy on the makeup though.”
Forum member GIVENCHYlover simply let us know: “I don’t like that dress!”
Narcyza shared the same sentiments, ranting, “I don’t like this red dress too. But her face here is just a disaster! Is it really Karlie? What awful airbrushing.”
Also noticing signs of evident retouching was mepps: “The extreme Photoshop on her face makes her look old and hard.”
Oh dear. Karlie’s colorful cover story might change your mind. See the story for yourself and share your opinion here.
