Emily Ratajkowski Dials Up the Drama for Vogue Mexico’s October Issue

Emily Ratajkowski might not be our forum members’ dream cover girl but she must be doing something right. Recently, Emily has landed covers for Marie Claire, ELLE Australia and Paper, and now it’s Vogue Mexico’s turn, making us forget those lifeless Hailey Baldwin covers from last month. Photographed by Carin Backoff and styled by Miguel Enamorado, Emily turns up the drama and goes all sultry and glam for the October 2018 issue.

Don’t expect any of our forum members to be making a mad dash for the newsstand. “Wonky lips on the one cover, and wonky hair on the other! She’s perfect for these tacky sex kitten-type of shoots, but it doesn’t really suit Vogue Mexico’s newfound classy direction,” said Benn98 straight away.

“Thanks for the laugh team VM! Oh and Kendall called, she wants her dead eyes back!” laughed Miss Dalloway.

“It all looks so mediocre to me. And I wish models didn’t rely so much on pouting or having their mouth open – they should retire the mouth and try to focus more on their eyes instead for a change to convey something (this is Vogue, not Insta),” remarked Morgane07. “She always seems to have the same makeup and hair. Do we ever see her looking different?”

Also not too impressed was forum member GivenchyAddict. “Vogue Paris by Terry Richardson. That’s all,” he slammed.

CrisGalaxy noticed some slight resemblances toward French Vogue too, commenting, “Reminds me of the February 2009 cover with Lara Stone!”

“Don’t like the cover shots, but I actually really like the shoot. It just doesn’t feel like it belongs on Vogue. It just feels like it belongs on something between Vogue and Maxim,” voiced SLFC.
