Did Patrick Demarchelier Really Shoot This ‘Lazy’ Vogue Russia Cover? (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Russia has been receiving a lot of flack from forum members lately for its unremarkable covers. Unfortunately, the magazine’s February issue isn’t exactly helping matters. A magazine like Vogue usually screams glamour, but there’s a lack of pizzazz on this one, even with Saskia de Brauw sporting a pair of unusual embellished jeans. Photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, we can’t understand how such a boring concept was executed.

“The covers are getting worse and worse from VR. To think I once adored this edition! This image is an outtake, or a light test shot at best, only a fool would grant it worthy of publishing! Not even A-list photographers can elevate when working for them. But I digress!” expressed Miss Dalloway as soon as the cover was posted.

“Lazy. Saskia deserves better,” added Nepenthes.

Srdjan was also left underwhelmed: “Gotta agree with you guys. I used to like Russian Vogue covers, they had some aesthetics I admired, but now – I don’t even bother to check out the covers sometimes.”

GlamorousBoy described the cover as “very ordinary.” Ouch!

“I hate those jeans, however I still think Saskia looks great,” shared fashionlover2001.

“It’s a surprising choice for Vogue Russia. I’m happy to see a MODEL. I’m sick of seeing models-celebs all the time. Saskia looks really good. Everything’s working here. I like the blue layout and not too much text. Much better than [a] month ago!” commented narcyza, whose post stuck out from the rest.
