British Vogue has redeemed itself after Emilia Clarke‘s eyesore of a cover last month with its new June edition featuring model-of-the-moment Anna Ewers. The German bombshell also covers the May issue of U.S. Harper’s Bazaar after having fronted numerous other editions of Vogue worldwide. Anna once again channels Brigitte Bardot on Vogue‘s latest, captured by Patrick Demarchelier while kneeling in the sand.
The overused Bardot concept doesn’t sit well with the majority of our forum members. “Why [is she] always styled in this way? It’s gorgeous but really boring,” noted Avogadro.
“It looks quite similar to her other covers,” added Nomar.
In agreement was orchidee who wrote, “Not the most original, but it’s a tried and true formula for a summer cover. Anna looks gorgeous obviously, but I really hope we’re not in for yet another Bardot-inspired editorial.”
Forum member t-rex was feeling the same way: “Anna as Brigitte Bardot, brilliant. Not. Anna has been styled as Bardot in her short career more times than Lara Stone in her long career. Stop it!”
“I’m not seeing the Bardot in this cover though. I mean that’s her face. They didn’t really primp her up. She’s in a bikini at the beach with beach curls. What were they suppose to do with her at the beach? Turn her into a Vargas girl?” A.D.C. fired back in retaliation.
Sure, not everyone was left bored and underwhelmed. “LOVE IT. Best U.K. cover in ages. Well, actually it’s my favorite U.K. Vogue cover ever. Gonna get it. This girl is stunning,” Creative raved.
Nepenthes was also on board writing, “Yessss!!! This is absolutely stunning, Anna is the best!”
