Even Vittoria Ceretti Can’t Save Vogue Korea’s ‘Amateur’ November 2019 Cover

Vittoria Ceretti is one of our forum favorites. Whether the Italian beauty is storming the runways during fashion week, gracing covers of Vogue Italia, Vogue China and Vogue Spain or becoming the face of mega brands like Moschino, Chanel and Alexander McQueen, Vittoria continues to impress. So we aren’t at all surprised to see Vittoria make a comeback on the cover of Vogue Korea for November 2019. Photographed by Hyea W. Kang and styled by Kihoh Sohn, Vittoria smolders in the dramatic cover shot sporting smoky eyes and a look from Louis Vuitton’s Cruise 2020 collection.

But our forum members felt the cover was a missed opportunity. “Yikes, this looks so amateur! Like it was taken with an Android. The reflection on her belt, the colors, huge miss for me,” said Benn98.

“All Vittoria does nowadays is save covers from being worse. I like the styling and everything, but that pose does not sit well with me. It looks weird,” called out SLFC.

“What a weird pose. She is giving Quasimodo realness,” mocked djowodjo30.

“I agree,” replied apple. “There’s this Quasimodo pose because of the arm placement that makes it look like her back plus it resembles the Vogue Paris cover for October 2019. Also her stare is not giving me anything!”

Sharing the same sentiment was vogue28: “I do find it hard to hate on anything with Vittoria Ceretti, but Vogue Korea is pushing the limitations with this! What on earth? It’s not the worst magazine cover I’ve come across, but could’ve undoubtedly been better. I absolutely loathe the gradient masthead and the minuscule text.”

“I am not a fan of this cover. The only good thing is Vittoria, who at least adds some emotion to it,” defended Mercury6181.

Bertrando3 disagreed with the majority. “This is the first time I actually enjoy Vittoria on a Vogue cover. I like this, it’s dark, powerful and edgy. Besides the great hair and makeup, I love the pose, too.”
