We’re Not Impressed with Toni Garrn’s Vogue Mexico Cover (Forum Buzz)

She might be the current girlfriend of Leonardo DiCaprio, but Toni Garrn‘s latest work is failing to impress most of our forum members. The German model fronts the September 2014 issue of Vogue Mexico where she is photographed by James Macari. On the cover, Toni wears a thick red coat teamed with a complementing waistcoat and dress, chosen by Sarah Gore Reeves. Toni’s last cover for Mexican Vogue was back in February 2013.

It was evident within minutes of the cover surfacing on our forums that our members were having mixed feelings. “This cover is awful, cheap, horrible and much more,” commented GlamVal.

“Cheap, cheaper, cheapest. She’s such an awful model,” agreed anlabe32.

MulletProof shared her insightful views: “I thought Eva Hughes was one bipolar nightmare as EIC of Vogue Mexico, mostly wacky, busy-looking covers with odd lapses of creativity or at least some taste (like 2011 and the September issue of 2008—all good and expressive in their own way), but Kelly Talamas… sighs, you gotta recognize her consistency… she’s just BAD in one steady stubborn line, she really has this vision of someone that would lazily flip through the weakest issues of American Vogue while watching Laguna Beach or Olivia Palermo‘s blog. Just everything about presentation and content sucks, it’s vapid, tacky and you can tell she really has no connection with the market this is aimed at… and really why use the most overexposed models only to make their image even more insufferable…if this isn’t just an ego stroke and flirting to later climb to a publication she actually respects, I just don’t know anymore. I won’t even go into ranting on these pole dancer hair extensions.”

The thread was divided with opinions. “Usually Vogue Mexico online photos are of poor quality, but in the print edition look better. I hope so!” wrote IndigoHomme.

“I quite like it too, especially for Vogue Mexico. Is everyone else saying they hate it simply because it is Vogue Mexico, or because it’s Toni?” questioned a positive niknak.

While I personally am not an admirer of the cover, at least there’s an adequate cover story to accompany Toni’s cover shot. You can check it out and share your own opinion inside the thread here.
