You may think otherwise, but it’s not always the major fashion glossies that take the fancy of our forums and Condé Nast Traveler is the latest topic of discussion. Not surprising, considering the magazine tapped none other than Amber Valletta to star on its March 2016 edition. Amber is a prominent fixture at the newsstand this month with Porter also tapping the model-turned-actress for its cover. This time around, the 90s modeling sensation turns heads shot before the lens of Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, making for an arresting, eye-catching cover shot.
Members of our forums were certainly into it. “My goodness this is stunning. Wow,” rejoiced an elated MON immediately.
“This is very cool. Even with the multitude of colors, Amber’s beautiful blue eyes are still the prominent feature of this cover,” acknowledged an equally amazed justaguy.
“This was my thought. With all that going on her face, the eyes still command the shot. Very pretty,” responded MyNameIs in agreement.
Sharing the same sentiments was happycanadian, approving, “Wow. Really beautiful cover. I love that it’s not cluttered with text! This is strong. Amber is stunning, as per usual.”
“It’s so dumb how Anna [Wintour] uses her position as Condé Nast’s artistic director to put all these models on the cover of a magazine she oversees but would never actually give these same models the cover of Vogue,” fumed A.D.C. as the discussion started to get a little sidetracked.
“Not really, I’m sure the majority of people who buy Condé Nast Traveler are just going to buy it anyway, regardless of who is on the cover. Not so much with Vogue,” blueorchid replied.
Miss Dalloway felt the same way, adding, “Gorgeous, although I agree that Wintour’s influence is greatly felt across CN titles, now!”
