Our forums often lament that Vogue Germany tends to throw a mountain of cover lines over its cover images, but this month’s offering takes the cake. After featuring the likes of Gigi Hadid, Edie Campbell and Anna Ewers in recent months, the title is sticking with girls-of-the-moment with current face of Louis Vuitton Rianne van Rompaey for June 2016. Shot by Daniel Jackson, the red-haired beauty from the Netherlands gives a fabulous close-up, allowing her natural beauty to do the captivating. But German Vogue just HAD to ruin it with all that text!
“Too many letters,” declared a horrified madzedre the second the cover came to light.
“I love the image but I wish the font was of a different color, too much orange going on…” kokobombon critiqued shortly after.
Miss Dalloway felt the same way, complaining, “Wow, that text layout is INSANE!! Especially with such a close-up shot, otherwise I would appreciate it more.”
Sharing the same sentiments was thatsfierce: “Ugh, too much text, but Rianne looks beautiful.”
“Very sweet shot of Rianne, although the font size is a bit overwhelming,” said justaguy, agreeing with the majority.
“The layout is a huge disservice to her gorgeous face! Nonetheless, it’s a stunning portrait!” reasoned MON.
Nymphaea was also willing to overlook the bad art direction. “Great close-up shot! I’m not mad about the silver but the letters frame her face in a nice way, makes her face even more the point of focus. It’s a bit dreamy,” she confessed.
“Finally a high fashion model on the cover of Vogue!” heralded Creative.
