Vogue Russia Goes Minimalist for April With Two Sleek Grace Elizabeth Covers

Vogue Russia has been ticking all the right boxes of late. The magazine nailed the attitude of the 80s with its Grace Hartzel cover for February and Luna Bijl‘s electrifying cover for March basically blew us away. Not bad for a magazine that’s undergoing some major staff changes. For April 2018, the title introduces a bold, sleek and sophisticated new cover design featuring forum favorite Grace Elizabeth. Photographed on location in Morocco by Giampaolo Sgura, the American model, who recently fronted Vogue Paris, wears a pair of H&M pants and some Bulgari jewelry in two nearly identical cover images.

Our forum members were quick to show the covers some love. “I absolutely love this! It’s a simple, fresh and clean cover but it screams ‘glamour is back.’ I like it,” approved MON at once.

“Good God, finally! They’re back to glamour and refinement. I like the concept and the shots, just not sure why we have two very similar looking ones. I think these are the best Sgura covers in some time. At least it’s something different for this edition,” Benn98 applauded.

“She looks gorgeous! Wish she’d get a US Vogue cover (I know, I’m a dreamer!),” commented Handbag Queen.

Ivano was also a fan of Grace scoring the cover. “This girl is everything! The fashion industry needs more Graces!” he raved.

Zposen also liked what she saw, adding, “Both covers are amazing! I absolutely adore the first one (above).”

“I typically don’t mind multi-covers within reason. But here I truly don’t see the need for two. The cover with the blue background is really quite nice!” TheoG favored.

“Pretty, but ELLE Russia did it better,” mentioned Nymphaea, pointing out the similarities between this and Russian ELLEs latest.
