Producing new content during the pandemic is obviously no easy task. (Unless you’re Emmanuelle Alt.) Given tight lockdown restrictions, a model whose significant other is handy with a camera is ideal. Ashley Graham was captured for British Harper’s Bazaar by her cinematographer husband Justin Ervin. We were treated to Julia Stegner by Benny Horne on the pages of Vogue Germany, too. Now Alexandra Agoston poses before the lens of her boyfriend Chris Colls for Vogue Poland. The July/August 2020 cover features Chris trying to get the best shot of Alexandra (who was styled remotely by Sarajane Hoare).
The majority of our forum members definitely aren’t thrilled with the outcome. “This obscene and vulgar glorification of nepotism must end! Needless to say, the cover looks OK. Except for Chris’ greasy-looking hair and the childish rainbow fonts, of course,” critiqued Benn98.
“Sometimes Chris shoots well, sometimes not, but as for Alexandra Agoston…we wouldn’t have heard of her if it wasn’t for Chris,” added Alien Sex Friend.

“The cover is embarrassing. There is nothing high fashion about it,” declared avonlea002.
But not everyone hates the cover. “My only complaint is that Alexandra isn’t wearing heels, which I feel would’ve elevated the shot somewhat. Otherwise, I’m a fan and the overall feel of the shot is giving me Kate Moss x Mario Sorrenti vibes,” said vogue28.
“I really do love this cover photo of Alexandra! She looks amazing…she seems aware of her strengths and knows how to play them up to get the best shot!” raved lauralynn025.
