We’re always happy to see Zendaya, but some of our favorite fashion glossies have never truly been able to do the Euphoria star justice. Not even Allure, InStyle or Vogue have gotten it right (but Marie Claire and ELLE have). Now Zendaya takes to the cover of Vogue Australia making her debut on the Aussie fashion bible for March 2020. Posing before the lens of Daniel Jackson with Christine Centenera on styling duties, Zendaya wears a look from Gucci’s Spring 2020 collection for the cover shot.
Zendaya’s latest split our forums. “They did her dirty. They managed to make her look like she was in a brothel. This doesn’t even look like my Zendaya. Seems like Vogue Australia is on a mission to butcher every gorgeous cover star they have,” called out MON.
“Awful. And normally Daniel Jackson is pretty reliable. What happened here?” asked mikel.
“Awful shot of her, awful styling and awful art direction,” said Miss Dalloway.

In the same frame of mind was Benn98: “Looks dirty and grimy and not in a sexy way. Jackson only excels in the studio.”
“I would never have guessed Daniel Jackson had shot this, purely because it’s so harsh and untypical of Jackson’s usual work. The cover shot is hideous, hate the styling from Christine Centenera, the set, the mood and that deeply unattractive font,” complained vogue28.
Forum member slayage couldn’t have disagreed more. “I love this. After last month’s pedestrian-looking cover, I was expecting something similar for March, but THANK GOD they finally produced imagery that cannot be found on the pages of Marie Claire in favor of something more fashion-y.”
“I think that the cover is refreshing! The green makes you feel nostalgic about the (now) vintage 2000s,” Srdjan shared.
