When commenting on the November cover of Vogue Mexico, tFS forum members agreed on two things: The outfit worn by Behati Prinsloo on the cover is tacky and trashy. And, the cover is awesome. “She looks so gorgeous, like a gold digger going to her dead husband's funeral,” described Moofins Behati’s appearance on the cover. The Victoria’s Secret model, who is set to marry Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, is wearing a dress from the Versace Fall 2013 collection on the cover and forum members agreed that she can absolutely pull it off.
“Tacky as hell but how gorgeous does she look with her face and pose though?!” asked Bertrando3.
And indeed, most forum members were wowed by Behati and could not find any flaws in the cover.
“I LOVE this, I might buy Vogue México for the first time in a long long time. Actually, I think the tacky outfit looks amazing against that background, very powerful image,” posted GarageGlamorous.
And Urban Stylin wrote, “I love it! The fact that they used Behati who is known for being the sweet girl next door, makes it less tacky.”
“Wow, this is breathtaking! Probably one of the best covers of the year, & the best I've seen Behati look,” swooned valliaddict.
And happycanadian gushed, “This is POWERFUL. It’s commanding. It’s easily the best cover Behati has ever had and one of my favorites from Vogue Mexico. I only wish it were for a bigger international version of the magazine. But man, this is stunning work. Her expression has such intensity and presence and I love the juxtaposition of the leather wedding (funeral?) dress with all the lushness of the greenery. Really striking!”
After a slew of disappointing November covers, this is a lovely surprise. This cover (shot by David Roemer) is simply great. Well done, Vogue México!
