Vogue Turkey is not generally noted for creating innovative, unique and eye-catching covers. The magazine has undeniably let standards slip lately, producing covers that attract attention for all the wrong reasons and it seems as though the mediocrity continues for August. Fresh off the cover of Vogue Russia, Lindsey Wixson is doused in red for the magazine’s annual Turkish designer issue, but the Richard Burbridge image makes the current face of Chanel resemble Little Red Riding Hood in the worst way possible.
Forum members couldn’t wait to let rip. “Eeck! Too much red, and Lindsey’s expression looks off. The shot doesn’t work as a cover I’m afraid,” complained Benn98, setting the tone for commentary to come.
“Vogue Turkey consistently makes a fool of themselves. I am amazed,” replied a horrified MON.
“Reminds me of Little Red Riding Hood … I like that BUT I don’t like Lindsey’s face/expression,” DutchHomme expressed.
Also unimpressed was narcyza. “It’s too much red. Red is everywhere. And the nude makeup doesn’t fit at all. Even red lipstick would’ve been better!” she suggested.
Forum member justaguy wasn’t exactly shouting from the rooftops, either, writing, “I think this could have worked much better with a different model. Anytime I see Lindsey in a photo, my eyes go immediately to her open mouth.”
“They had Lindsey on the cover before. If it’s the start of the fall collection issue it’s still far too much red. Even Spanish magazines who love red don’t use this much vibrant red. I wish they used a less vibrant color and another model. Mostly magazines love to use red in December issue covers, not August issues,” laughed glamrockgal.
