Is Irina Shayk set to become 2017’s most in-demand model? It sure is starting to look that way, as she’s already the face of the Alberta Ferretti and Givenchy Spring 2017 campaigns and continues to be embraced by the rest of the fashion industry. Vogue Brazil kickstarts the new year with two new covers featuring the Russian bombshell for January, photographed by Giampaolo Sgura. However, there is a clear favorite when viewing both covers side by side.
Members of our forums weren’t afraid to tell it like it is. “I love the second cover (above). I think that the first one (below) would have been lovely if her expression and styling were better,” pointed out kokobombon upon seeing both covers.
Sensation felt the same way: “The second cover is much better than the first.”
“I love the second one,” echoed gazebo, who went on to comment: “Great face, great styling, she fills this sweater like no other. Happy for Irina!”
Sharing the same sentiments was vogue28, posting, “Quite obvious the first cover should’ve been scrapped altogether. What a terrible shot of Irina (probably the worst I’ve seen in recent memory) and along with everyone else, I much prefer the second cover.”
Thatsfierce just couldn’t get over the evident post-production on the two covers. “Can we talk how badly Photoshopped she is? What a shame! She’s such a beautiful woman and they made this of her,” he posted.
“Both covers are not good. Hate this hairdo and this styling is so cheap,” complained narcyza.
Forum member Bertrando3 agreed. “Ditto, it’s a mess and I don’t like any of these! Sgura is a tricky photographer for me. Sometimes he does amazing and very classical beauty (which I think is his strength) and then he does this where the styling, the casting, the photo is bad. Irina is hopeless as a model for me anyways so there you go,” he said.
