Alma Jodorowsky’s First Vogue Paris Cover Looks Like an Outtake

Emmanuelle Alt continues to feature her favorites on the cover of Vogue Paris, giving Kaia Gerber the February cover and Grace Elizabeth the one for March. Alt now gives up the April cover to French actress Alma Jodorowsky, who embodies true Parisian spirit in the girl-about-town image. Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin captured Jodorowsky on location in New York City wearing a head-to-toe Chanel look (because what could be more Parisian than that, right?) styled by Alt herself.

The cover left our forums divided. “This is the final cover?” asked a dumbfounded Benn98 the moment the cover dropped. “Well, OK. I mean it looks more like a Bijoux or Miss Vogue outtake to me. Once again the art direction seems not to match the shot at all.”

“Cute supplement. Where’s the main issue?” mocked russianelf, suggesting the cover wasn’t up to scratch.

Also not terribly fond of the outcome was forum member Wintergreen. “Who? She seems to be a pretty mediocre model, someone better would have made that cover work,” he pointed out.

Lelaid agreed, writing, “I like the idea, but the execution is off. Also, who is this? Are we supposed to know her?”

“Josephine Le Tutour would have made this work… but she clearly has no famous family ties,” added KissMiss.

“I think Alma’s beautiful, I don’t get the comments here. She’s a French it-girl, why wouldn’t she be on the cover?” questioned tomtakesphotos.

“OMG, I’m a sucker for cliché Chanel, but this is so poorly done. Do you remember the Iris Strubegger cover? That was well done. This is not. She is just disguised in 80s Chanel. Could’ve been nice but Alt’s approach is just so basic,” Creative ranted.
