The majority of spring magazine covers have been far too dark, tiresome and uninspiring. Luckily, Vogue Russia takes us to the warmer climate of Ibiza for its May cover shoot. After the magazine failed to impress with an artsy April cover featuring Natasha Poly, forum members are none too pleased with the latest issue starring bronzed goddess Emily DiDonato. Photographed by Mariano Vivanco, Emily works a khaki shirt teamed with a white skirt and contrasting gold belt, leaving us with Emmanuelle Alt styling vibes.
Unfortunately something missed the mark for our forum members. “This looks like a supplement! I really dislike these covers shot by Vivanco. The styling is dead. The background is dead. The stare is dead. And that orange color annoys me to death,” shared an annoyed MON the minute the cover surfaced.
“Not very Vogue Russia! It looks like a sub-par Bazaar cover from some random country,” added gossiping .
Forum member la veronika wasn’t impressed either. “Very boring, like a catalog cover,” she complained.
Also not showing much support was Nepenthes: “Emily looks like a goddess as usual but overall this shot lacks cover impact.”
KateTheGreatest shared the same sentiments, writing, “Not really a strong cover, maybe it would be better if someone else shot it. Also Emily is gorgeous, but she looks over Photoshopped here, especially around her eyes.”
“I feel like I’ve seen this cover a trillion times before,” criticized sore.
