We’ve been Vogue Portugal’s biggest advocates over recent months (overlooking this Jessica Stam cover, of course) thanks to the magazine’s boundary-pushing cover subjects, cover images and cover design. It has become one of the boldest and most daring tiles at the newsstand right now — and it’s not letting is down for September. The magazine makes Crystal Renn its latest cover girl, dressed in a red Givenchy dress while playing the role of a ‘diva’ perfectly for photographer Branislav Simoncik.
It was love at first sight for our forum members. “When I first saw this on Instagram I genuinely thought it was a Vogue Italia throwback, seriously one of the best covers I’ve seen in so long! So reminiscent of the glory days of Vogue Italia under Franca [Sozzani]! Obsessed,” raved Blayne266.
“WOW! I love this cover. It looks like a mid-2000s Vogue Italia. Very nice,” RanThe said.
“Now that’s a great Vogue cover,” stated mepps.

In agreement over how terrific everything turned out was Fiercification. “Amazing cover. One of the best I’ve seen in ages. I’ve never been a Crystal fan but she can bring some great sultry energy to her editorial work,” he said.
“EASILY my favorite September cover, I will go to great lengths to get this in print! Well done!” applauded Miss Dalloway.
Perickles made her love for the cover clear too: “I love it! Very theatrical and artistic! I love her red dress and expression. This is a very passionate cover.”
“This is such a fantastic cover. Full of real life and energy, and just fully enticing you to grab a copy to read,” noted sweetpop.
