Can Vogue Mexico ever catch a break? The magazine left us with mixed feelings after an average January cover and we have the same sentiments toward its February cover. The magazine tapped Eva Longoria to star on its latest installment, in theory being a perfect cover subject for the fashion title, given Eva’s various upcoming projects. Yet something appears a little off to us. The former Desperate Housewives actress was captured by Stockton Johnson surrounded by a luscious landscape as she sports a vibrant top and matching pants from Mary Katrantzou teamed with Chanel jewelry. But seriously, what’s up here?
Forum members were quick to voice their concerns. As soon as the cover surfaced, Oxymore asked, “Eva is that you?”
Also suggesting some overdoing of the post-production was Anna147. “What happened to her?” she questioned.
“Photoshop fail!” declared Emmanuelle. “On the cover her face looks like a Disney animation and the whole look is VERY Telenovela,” added gazebo in response.
KateTheGreatest overlooked the evident airbrushing, but ranted, “Is she still relevant enough to get covers?”
On the other hand, Urban Stylin‘s positive comments stood out among the rest: “I actually like the colors, wish she was wearing a dress in the same print as the pants. As for relevance she’s one of the most successful Mexican actresses of all time as well as a fashion/beauty star and producer for Devious Maids, so am sure she deserves a Vogue Mexico cover. This is not U.S. Vogue, they don’t give covers based on what someone is promoting in the U.S.”
“Since Issa’s cover, Vogue Mexico is focused on Latin American designers, people, trends and more. Maybe this is a new course for the magazine. Just maybe,” enthused IndigoHomme, hopeful the magazine is headed in a new direction.
We’re happy to see a fashion magazine enlist someone unexpected as its cover subject, therefore Vogue Mexico deserves a round of applause for that alone. Share your own opinion with us here.
