Katy Perry, who recently debuted a new (somewhat questionable) look on the cover of the May issue of Vogue, now appears alongside Pharrell Williams on the magazine’s Met Gala Special Edition issue for 2017. Just like Taylor Swift on last year’s offering, the Met Gala co-chair appears in her Maison Margiela outfit from the evening in what appears to be a tabloid paparazzi shot, photographed by Mario Testino. Notwithstanding the odd cover image choice, we fail to understand why Vogue continues to release this annual special edition.
“Personally, I think these US Vogue Met Gala editions are a total waste. There is literally nothing inside that we haven’t already seen for free, splashed across Vogue‘s website or social media platforms. I wonder if copies actually sell on the newsstand (it would be interesting to see the sales figures),” pointed out vogue28.
