We’ve been singing the praises of Emmanuelle Alt over recent months as the editor successfully navigates Vogue Paris through the pandemic. First came a pair of dazzling Bella and Gigi Hadid covers followed by two equally brilliant issues featuring Mica Argañaraz and Natasja Madsen. Another Nathaniel Goldberg-shot cover comes our way for August 2020 as Natalia Vodianova returns to the French fashion bible’s front cover six years after her last appearance. Styled by Alt, the Russian beauty whips her hair in the cover shot while sporting a navy blue jumpsuit from Christian Dior’s Fall 2020 collection.
Did the mag’s latest cover extend its winning streak? “Two white background covers by Nathaniel Goldberg in a row. It’s not bad,” confessed mikel the moment the cover dropped.
“I wasn’t expecting something this fresh and I love it,” raved kokobombon.
“Not my favorite cover, but you can’t go wrong with Natalia! She looks great as always and naturally Vogue Paris is once again the winner of the month,” agreed aracic.

The cover didn’t sit well with everyone, however. “I honestly don’t get the love for this cover. It’s very mundane, even with the movement,” shared an underwhelmed Summer Day.
“Doesn’t seem much different than the previous cover and the blast of air has made the condition of her hair look awful, like it’s frizzy and lank all at the same time,” tigerrouge pointed out.
“Natalia isn’t the best when it comes to movement. She looks very stiff,” said GivenchyHomme.
“It could have been better. However, considering the circumstances, it’s still a decent cover,” defended MON.
