Paris Jackson was wholeheartedly embraced by the fashion industry in 2017, signing a lucrative contract with Calvin Klein and covering the likes of Vogue Australia, Harper’s Bazaar, CR Fashion Book and Teen Vogue. Vogue Brazil (as well as Carine Roitfeld) ushers Paris into 2018, as the 19-year-old graces the title’s cover for January, following a series of Valentina Sampaio covers for December. Paris was photographed by Jacques Dequeker wearing Prada in the fairly simple black and white image.
Members of our forums weren’t having it. “What in the fresh hell is this?” asked a horrified dodencebt upon seeing the cover.
“They are trying very hard to make her happen but she is very irrelevant in this industry. She is neither a style icon or someone who is doing good music or movies. She has done nothing,” pointed out a completely disinterested Lola701.
“She’s not even that popular on social media – it just feels like it’s being forced upon us,” voiced magsaddict.
“A pretty girl, but not her best shot. It looks like she’s going through a teenage experiment of not washing her hair for several weeks,” added tigerrouge.
Valentine27 felt the same way, commenting, “She’s very pretty but this cover does nothing for her!”
Also not into the cover was forum member mistress_f: “I have so many questions… why is this girl everywhere? They’re really trying to make her happen, right? Also, what the hell is this cover? That red framing?!”
“What is that red thing/effect even trying to accomplish? This is a mess,” echoed Wintergreen.
Better luck next month, Vogue Brazil. See more from Paris’ cover shoot and add your own two cents here.
