Vogue Portugal occasionally becomes a topic of discussion in our forums, especially after successfully managing to impress with a Gisele Bündchen reprint back in June. The title has been in and out of favor since then, but is now back in our good graces with the release of its October 2015 edition. Portuguese Vogue tapped Czech beauty Karolina Kurkova and enlisted the photographic expertise of Marcin Tyszka for the cover shoot, in which Karolina dons a Magda Butrym dress teamed with a hat from Maison Michel. Major kudos for producing an original shoot!
Forum members were delighted with the outcome. “The one and only KK. I love this cover! The colors, Karolina, everything works together. I love seeing Karolina in simple photographs like this one. Well done Vogue Portugal!” congratulated Aizanara straight away.
“This is a beautiful cover. It’s so good to see KK!!!” raved thatsfierce.
Also giving the cover a rave review was happycanadian: “I am FLOORED by this image. She looks so pure and ethereal or something. It’s a very unique and striking image of KK. I love when she’s shot like this, just showing off her own singular beauty. Really love this cover. This will totally pop on the newsstand!”
“Very well done indeed, Vogue Portugal does good sometimes and this is it. Karolina looks amazing and the skin, hair, makeup and styling work with the theme, I like it. The cover lines and colors also match and it’s a good combo I feel. I will be interested in reading her interview actually,” Bertrando3 added.
Benn98 was feeling it, too, applauding, “Wow, impressive, they’ve done good here! I’ve been liking their covers a lot this year. This looks tremendous. I hate not being able to understand Portuguese because the cover feature sounds interesting.”
