Gigi Hadid’s Stripped Down Cover of Vogue Germany Garners Mixed Reviews (Forum Buzz)

It was evident the moment she took to her first-ever Vogue cover back in March 2015 that Gigi Hadid was here to stay. Now, with nine covers of the fashion bible tucked safely under her belt, Gigi steals the spotlight on Vogue Germany. Making her debut for the magazine after starring on the March issue of Vogue Paris, Gigi gets stripped down, wearing minimal makeup and nothing but a floral Dolce & Gabbana coat draped around her shoulders.

But the cover left our forums divided. “This is STUNNING! Wow. I love the feminine touch to the cover. And I love how everything’s just so calm and chic. I couldn’t ask for a better cover. She keeps on giving quality work… For the very first time, their layout worked and that’s a huge deal,” congratulated MON.

“Pretty much looks like a great issue for May!!! Gigi is really gorgeous, I love how stripped back she is here. Wow she is ROCKING the Vogue covers! U.S. Vogue next!” added Miss Dalloway.

The cover wasn’t catering to everyone’s tastes, however. “Now she is everywhere but this is too bad,” disapproved zzzyao76.

Also not showing much appreciation was narcyza: “Gigi’s makeup is terrible. Nothing special. Really boring cover of Vogue Germany…”

Marc10 wasn’t much of an admirer, either, pointing out, “The lighting on the cover is awful, her face looks so weird.”

“The cover is awful, I would love the cover story with another model (Imagine it with Anna Ewers, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Doutzen Kroes or Alisa Ahmann), it does not work with her face in my opinion…” complained an underwhelmed dcmaike.
