We love a good OTT cover, but there’s also a time and place for minimalism on magazines. As we enter a new year (not to mention a whole new decade), Vogue Spain decides less is more for its January 2020 installment. The Spanish fashion bible has been riding a wave of success lately, delivering a plethora of dazzling covers starring Karlie Kloss, Birgit Kos, Dua Lipa, Vittoria Ceretti along with Irina Shayk and Adriana Lima. Now the mag starts the new year off right with Edie Campbell wearing Prada for the chic and clean cover shot captured by photographer Sølve Sundsbø.
Our forum members loved the mag’s stripped down approach. “So elegant, simple and subdued. It’s so eye-catching! Edie looks terrific. Vogue Spain is on a bit of a roll,” praised KINGofVERSAILLES.
“Love everything about it, even the hair. This is 90s done right. Just last month Karlie brought the drama so I’m perfectly fine with something a bit plain for January,” approved Benn98.

“Nothing groundbreaking, but gorgeous nonetheless. Sometimes less really is more cause despite being a simple studio shot, it’s one of the best covers of the month. It’s very 90s indeed…” noted aracic.
“So simple yet so incredibly beautiful and Edie is just gorgeous here. What a great clean, fresh way to start 2020!” heralded justaguy.
“I love this! The color palette is divine, the grays and soft peach are so beautiful together. Always love seeing Edie and I appreciate the minimal styling paired with the grungy, messy hair,” raved Blayne266.
But not everyone was feeling it. “It looks like she just got out of bed, had a shower and then put on whatever she could find,” an underwhelmed Nomar critiqued.
Bertrando3 wasn’t overjoyed with the outcome, either. “What the HELL is this? Can’t believe it’s a Vogue cover.”
