Vogue Arabia has been (more than) good to us throughout 2018. The magazine served up a sleek and sophisticated Irina Shayk cover in February, followed up with a set of exquisite Iman & Imaan Hammam covers, made a bold political statement mid-year, gave Nicki Minaj her very first Vogue cover for September and made modeling icon Naomi Campbell its cover girl last month. To close out the year, Arabian Vogue introduces Hailey Bieber as a married woman with a set of covers for December. Photographed by Zoey Groosman, the blonde beauty goes disco glam on cover one (below) with 70s-inspired makeup and appears more subtle in the black and white cover two (after the jump).
For our forum members, however, the covers proved to be an instant disappointment. “This looks nothing like her which is the most positive thing I can say right now,” commented dodencebt when the cover (above) came to light.
“Wait, is that seriously her? Not in a million years would I have recognized her, WTF,” scoffed Miss Dalloway.
“Better than I was expecting considering that is Justin Bieber’s wife. But nothing great. We have seen this so many times before,” chimed in Perickles.

“Another cover placement bought and paid for. She doesn’t have the range. Did they morph her face with JB’s?” asked zoom.
