Lindsey Wixson Scores Vogue Japan’s Spangly August Cover (Forum Buzz)

Lindsey Wixson is Vogue Japan's August 2014 cover girl (curiously mislabeled in the image below as July 2014). Giampaolo Sgura photographed the American model who stands before a white background wearing a sequined dress from Saint Laurent's Fall 2014 collection, which was styled by Anna Dello Russo. Wixson, Sgura and Russo have worked together before on numerous projects, so it's no wonder we're seeing Wixson score her second cover of Japanese Vogue.

Forum member burbuja8910 suggests Sgura's previous covers for Vogue Japan haven't been up to scratch and wrote, "Finally a good cover [from] Sgura."

"It's a cool cover for VP. I actually like it," enthused fashionlover2001.

"Every month I [expected] to see one thing and that Chiharu… I should stop getting my hopes up. But I don't mind the cover, not really all that fond of Giampaolo photography. The font doesn't bother me, I guess it's what gives Vogue Japan identity and the fact that it's in Japanese," shared TheoG.

The attitude soon changed within the thread when MoniqValentino posted, "Ohh , I don't like it. Everything is bad for me. I'm not a fan of Lindsey, and this font is horrible…"

"I guess I have a problem with a white background on a cover. Terribly boring. Awful dress. I don't mind the Vogue font but this is simply not the type of cover that I like," commented Valentine27.
