Gigi Hadid tied Adut Akech for the top cover model of 2019 title and now Gigi’s first cover of 2020 has dropped. Following in the footsteps of her sister Bella Hadid, Claudia Schiffer and Irina Shayk, Gigi finally makes her debut on Vogue Russia for February 2020. A far cry from her last Vogue cover appearance on Vogue Germany, the glamour is stripped back with the current face of Max Mara sitting on the studio floor wearing Christian Dior in the Zoey Grossman-shot image.
But the cover failed to impress the majority of our forum members. “This is very juvenile for Vogue. Clearly not a fan,” voiced Valentine27 the moment the cover came to light.
“Agreed, I think a location would have given it more character. Because as it is, the cover is just meh. Not bad, not great,” said Benn98.
“It’s an OK cover, certainly not one of Gigi’s finest newsstand moments, but certainly not the worst. A bit too juvenile,” echoed vogue28.

“Why did they try and make her look like she’s 16?” wondered Nomar.
Forum member tigerrouge wasn’t a fan: “It feels like a 16-year-old experimenting with poses in front of the mirror in her room.”
“I like it, it’s very Russian, but also with a side of LOVE magazine. I might just be very biased though, I am a big fan of Zoey Grossman,” praised SLFC.
“She looks pretty good. The natural hair and makeup on her is very pretty,” declared dior_couture1245.
