Too Much Text Ruins Edita Vilkeviciute’s Vogue Germany Cover (Forum Buzz)

Edita Vilkeviciute’s portfolio must be growing like crazy with all the Vogue covers she’s been getting lately. Currently on the cover of Vogue Spain (which went down a treat on our forums), Edita now returns for a fourth time to the cover of Vogue Germany. For its July 2016 edition, the publication tapped the Lithuanian beauty to pose before the lens of photographer Boo George. Shot with wet and tousled hair, a heavy smoky eye and a frilly Chanel number, Edita’s latest Vogue cover wasn’t well-received by the majority of our forum members.

It seems as though German Vogue‘s never-ending love for cover lines remains. “Too many headlines. I’m choking,” cried out phungnam96 the moment the cover dropped.

“I absolutely love the image but so many useless tags, why?!” asked a disapproving kokobombon.

“Insane text layout, but still a fresh, and lovely cover. Love Edita, and it’s nice to see Boo getting more cover work!” applauded Miss Dalloway.

In the same frame of mind was MON, adding, “This is so much better than her Vogue Spain cover. This is stunning. It has a Peter Lindbergh feel to it. Let’s talk about that layout. My goodness. Vogue Germany seriously needs to update their layout and font. Everything about it feels so dated.”

“Not a massive fan, but it’s better than her Vogue Spain cover,” pointed out sixtdaily in agreement.

Benn98 was unwilling to overlook the bad art direction, too. “No, this doesn’t appeal to me. Looks very tacky indeed. It’s the greasy looking hair and smudged makeup. It seems each month this magazine tries to defile their images with as much cover lines possible. It’s embarrassing,” he slammed.

“It’s summery, but I can also imagine Pamela Anderson in that picture, clutching those ‘lace curtains’ around herself before they come off in subsequent shots. It’s cluttered and tacky,” said tigerrouge.
